Advancement of Civilization - an essential subject
In the age of Kali, people derive pleasure by engaging in material activities in the name of progress which they believe is the advancement of human civilization. However, instead of advancing, the result is that the living entities become degraded and more addicted to sense gratification. This makes one forget his real identity as the eternal part and parcel and servant of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Sri Krishna. By a slight cultivation of the mode of goodness, a glimpse of one’s spiritual nature can be perceived. However, due to false ideas about advancement of civilization, people have no interest in the real goal of life or awakening their Krishna consciousness. Real advancement of civilization is attained by enlightening people about the Lord and His transcendental nature.
