Modern Civilization - an essential subject
The modern civilization, focuses on increasing the sense enjoyment process, making life more complicated, because the real motive of human life is to develop devotional service to the Lord not for sense gratification. Modern civilization is misleading society from the real goal of life, which is to become humble servants of the lord and fully surrendered onto Him. People are spending their lives trying to be economically well situated. This economic development is to increase our sense gratification and this process of sense gratification is the reason we are suffering in this material world. Therefore a intelligent person with the aim of attaining the real perfection of life, focuses on rendering service to the Lord. He has no time for economic development, such a intelligent person only depends on the Lord.
