Slow and steady wins the race! Only $12,000 $5,221 more is needed to keep alive and vibrant for the next six months. A big THANK YOU to those who've contributed to our Fall Fundraiser so far. If everyone gave a few dollars (say, between five and fifty) we could get rid of this banner and go back to doing what we love most: helping people all over the Internet discover Krishna. If you give $25 or more, we'll email you a gift of the Bhagavad-gita audio book. How about that? Click here to donate.

Do we need the help of God for inner self happiness?

Q: Do we need the help of God for inner self happiness?

A: Yes. We always need the sanction of God for success in any endeavor for he is the supreme controller.

The perfection of inner happiness is to establish a loving relationship with God who is situated within, who pervades everything, and who resides in his original spiritual form in the spiritual world.

Q: There are also certain very famous and successful people in the world who do not believe such things; what can be inferred about them?

A: Material fame and success do not help one attain God. But for one who is already God conscious, they can be used in God's service.

It is difficult to advance in transcendental realization, for persons who believe only in things they can perceive with their gross senses.
