survival of the fittest - H.H.Radhanath Swami

If you ever think there will be a peaceful situation in this world that will last for long that is your illusion. There is no question or possibility of peace in a battlefield, your fighting is constantly going on, from the beginning of creation to destruction, every element of material existence is having fights, gross and subtle and yet we are trying to make some nice arrangements for peace by our material manipulation through politics, through medicine, through social welfare work, through philosophy, through religion, we are trying to create peace in a massive battlefield where the fighting never ends. The only way to achieve peace is to transcend the material existence which is a place of war, survival of the fittest; even in your little body, if there are good cells and the chemicals in your body they will survive. In the jungle, the big animals they survive and the little animals are devoured; in the water, the big fish survive and the little fish are devoured; in the sky the big birds survive and the little bird are devoured or they are at least in fear of being devoured, this is a world of the survival of the fittest, Bhagavatam says one living being is a food for another and however big you are, you are going to be a food for someone.
