No prison imprisons as badly as the prison of doubt

Suppose a patient has been fleeced by a doctor and so can’t trust any doctor. That cynicism imprisons the patient perpetually in disease.

A far worse prison imprisons those who due to bad experiences with godmen can’t trust Krishna. No one wants to be cheated – and no one wants to be so naively and foolishly trusting as to be cheated a second or a third time. Yet such wary people do themselves the greatest disservice when they let this natural and desirable caution degenerate into an unnatural and undesirable suspicion. They end up becoming aggressive antitheists. These preachers of atheism are impelled by a cynicism that equates everything religious with the lowest, slimiest, basest features of human nature.

Though people can act in evil ways – and though some evil people use religion to further their evil ends, Gita wisdom assures that the goodness of God exceeds, supersedes and transcends whatever evil the world may hand out, even if that evil is handed out in the name of God.

The Bhagavad-gita (04.40) confirms that inveterate doubters find happiness neither in this world nor in the next. Their doubt cuts them away from Krishna along with all that he alone can offer – spiritual happiness, divine help and transcendental hope. It imprisons them in the deep dark dreary cellar of their minds wherein they are haunted and tormented by the base desires triggered by their lower nature.

Beyond all appearances to the contrary, everyone as souls are diseased due to misdirected attachment to temporary material things. Only those who take the key of faith, use it to open the lock of their heart and let Krishna in are able to let the fullness of life and the sweetness of love enter and enrich them.

Bhagavad Gita Chapter 04 Text 40

"But ignorant and faithless persons who doubt the revealed scriptures do not attain God consciousness; they fall down. For the doubting soul there is happiness neither in this world nor in the next."

The purpose of service is not productivity or popularity but purity
When we have a feeling of failure instead of a failure of feeling, we have a success

  1. pr ji , YOUR every article of GITA DAILY helps us to advance spiritually , step by step , we go up the ladder , till one day we reach GOLOKA.( day refers to possibly this human life itself )
    thank you pr ji for giving us the key to open the lock of our spiritual hearts, to let krsna in .
    i thank you for even providing the method / spiritual knowledge to use this key.
    if a material lock is complicated to open , then just a material key will not suffice, one needs to have the knowledge how to use the key.
    so thanks for all this , on the spiritual platform.
