This is our nature. We should understand this. We are not subjected to birth and death, but we are. Why we are subjected to birth and death? This question was raised by SanÄtana GosvÄmÄ« to ÅrÄ« Caitanya MahÄprabhu. "Ke Ämi", "kene ÄmÄya jÄre tÄpa-traya" (CC Madhya 20.102): "I am not subjectedâ¦, I do not want all these miserable condition of life, but why I am forced to accept it?" This is the question of life, athÄto brahma jijÃ±ÄsÄ.
But people are not interested. That is not very good civilization. They do not inquire the prime necessities of life. They do not inquire, "Why shall I die? If I am nitya, if I am eternal, ÅÄÅvataá¸¥, purÄá¹aá¸¥, the oldest"âna hanyate hanyamÄne ÅarÄ«reâ"if I do not die, if I am not annihilated after the death, after annihilation of this body, then why my body is annihilated? Why I am subjected to birth, death?" This is the problem.
- (BG 13.9)
But we are not inquisitive. This is our foolishness. MÅ«á¸hÄ. They do not know what is the problem of life. They are fighting in politics. Politics-created problems. There is everythingâ¦ One party is thinking that "If I am the government, I shall make everything all right." But nobody knows the real problem, so they are fightingâall over the world. When I wasas (in) Rome, the same thing. There was a fighting between the Fascists and the Communists, and immediately, six person died by fighting. This is going on in ignorance. MÅ«á¸hÄ. They do not know what is the problem of life, and unnecessarily they are creating temporary problems and fighting on them. They do not know what is Ká¹á¹£á¹a.
Therefore this Ká¹á¹£á¹a consciousness movement is the supermost enlightening movement to the human society. Supermost. They are putting actually what is this problem, and solution of the problem. Solution of the problem meansâ¦ Real problem is birth, death, old age and disease. So solution of problem means that if you donât get this material body, then this is the solution. So longâ¦ That is stated in the ÅrÄ«mad-BhÄgavatam:
- nÅ«naá¹ pramattaá¸¥ kurute vikarma
- yad indriya-prÄ«taya Äpá¹á¹oti
- na sÄdhu manye yata Ätmano 'yam
- asann api kleÅada Äsa dehaá¸¥
- (SB 5.5.4)
This dehaâdehino 'smin yathÄ deheâthis deha, kleÅada, it is always miserable. That we do not know. We know, we experience, it is kleÅada, which gives kleÅa, miserable conditions, but we are callous on this point. We are fighting on superficial problems, created problem. There is no problem. Here, pÅ«rá¹am idaá¹, pÅ«rá¹am idaá¹ pÅ«rá¹am adaá¸¥ pÅ«rá¹Ät pÅ«rá¹am udacyate (ÄªÅo Invocation). Everything is complete there. There is no cause. Just like the birds, beasts, they have no problem; but the problem of birth, death is there. Otherwise there is no problem in the beast society, bird society, animal society, aquatic society. They are living. The problem is birth, death. That is even in the, what is called, Brahmaloka. BrahmÄ also will also die.
