Material Happiness - an essential subject
Pious and impious activities can bring about material happiness and distress, but there is no possibility of one becoming a pure devotee simply by acting piously or impiously. Bhakti, devotional service, means satisfying Kṛṣṇa. One does not need to waste time endeavoring for material happiness. It is best to use our time for development of Kṛṣṇa consciousness. That will give us real happiness. That is the instruction of Kṛṣṇa.
