Shelter of Krishna - an essential subject
Everyone is falsely thinking independent, but he is dependent. But he is depending on false platform. That is the mistake of this material civilization. They are thinking of protection from a (sic:) tiltering platform, material world. So we have to take shelter of Kṛṣṇa. Kṛṣṇa is very friendly to all of us. Therefore he comes down from Vaikuṇṭha to inform this, that is Bhagavad-gītā. The Lord is so merciful to the living entity, but due to the living entity having the desire to be the enjoyer not servant, the jiva (living) suffers. As soon as the living entity surrenders to the Lord, all his suffering is then removed.
