730906 Lecture - Srila Prabhupada Speaks a Nectar Drop in Stockholm

From Vanipedia

Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Nāyaṁ deho deha-bhājāṁ nṛloke kaṣṭān kāmān arhate viḍ-bhujāṁ ye (SB 5.5.1). This daytime or nighttime, we work so hard, but what is the aim? Aim is to satisfy senses. Ask these people all over the world, especially in the Western country. They are making so many plans. Yesterday, when we were coming by the plane, the whole two hours one man was working, making some calculation. So everybody is busy, very, very busy, but if we ask him, 'Why you are working so hard? What is the aim?' the aim, he has nothing to say except sense gratification. That's all. He has no more aim. He may think that 'I have got a big family, I have to maintain them,' or 'I have got so much responsibility'. But what is that? That is simply sense gratification."
