Envious of God - an essential subject

From Vanipedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Because of our envy of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, we have become envious of all other living entities. When we are no longer envious of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, there will be real peace, unity and fraternity in human society. Due to our envy towards the Lord, we strive hard in this material world to become masters of sense gratification. The Lord has unlimited opulence and therefore we want to be like Him. This mentality of being like the Lord only keeps us in the cycle of birth and death. The Lord is the supreme enjoyer and not even a blade of grass moves without His sanction. Therefore we should understand our constitutional position as eternal servants of the Lord.
