This is the disease, material disease. Everyone will be forced. You cannot live here forever. They are making very nice arrangement: nice house, nice kingdom, nice city, nice bank balance, nice society, nice community, nice nation. But they are missing one point that, "Any moment I shall be kicked out. Any moment." There is no guarantee. Parīkṣit Mahārāja got seven days' time that, "You shall die within seven days." We have no even one second's guarantee. This is our position. But still, we are so much attached. Dehāpatya-kalatrādiṣu ātma-sainyeṣu (SB 2.1.4). Everyone is thinking, "I am very comfortable at home. I have got my wife. I have got my children. I have got my bank balance. I have got so many things. I have got my nation, community. I am secure. I am secure." Why he is thinking like that? Pramatta: mad, madman. That is described:
- piśācī pāile yena mati-cchanna haya
- māyā-grasta jīvera se dasa upadaya
- (Prema-vivarta 1)
Ghostly haunted, every one of us. This māyā-grasta, one who is under the influence of this material energy, just like . . . exactly like a man who is ghostly haunted. Ghostly haunted. Perhaps some of you have seen a man ghostly haunted. He talks all nonsense. Similarly, the māyā-grasta jīva, those who are in this material . . . too much absorbed in the bodily concept of life, without any self-realization . . . everyone is thinking like madman that, "These things will give me protection." Because he has become mad, pramatta. Pramatta. Teṣāṁ pramatto nidhanam. You are fighting with soldiers. That's all right. But if you know, "All my soldiers will die," then what is the use of your fighting? Or you take some means that your fighting will be victorious. No. They do not know.
