Material Association - an essential subject
Human beings, by long material association, life after life, have a natural inclination to endeavor to lord it over material energy. They have no sense of the responsibility of human life. Due to the contamination of material association, through many millions of births, one's heart is covered with the dust of materialism. Love of God is in a dormant state in everyone's heart but it is contaminated by material association. The heart has to be purified from material association so that the dormant, natural love for Kṛṣṇa can be revived. When one engages in devotional service and constantly chants Hare Kṛṣṇa, the dust of materialism quickly clears, and one is elevated to the platform of pure knowledge.
