Unfortunate - an essential subject
In this age, people in general as well as their leaders are all unlucky fellows, faithless in spiritual knowledge and influenced by this age of materialism. They are always disturbed by various diseases. Unfortunately, in this present age there are so many HIV and cancer patients. Obesity and depression attack us from all sides. The unfortunate men of this age are very reluctant to give reception to the transcendentalists who are all representatives of Śrīla Vyāsadeva. These selfless workers are always busy in planning how to help unfortunate people from all statuses and orders of life. The greatest philanthropists are those transcendentalists who represent the mission of Vyāsa, Nārada, Madhva, Caitanya, Rūpa, Sarasvatī, etc. They are all one and the same. The personalities may be different, but their aim of mission is one and the same, namely, to take unfortunate souls and make them fortunate by teaching them how to go back home, back to Godhead.
