Krishna answers life's big questions -- Who are we? How did we get here? What are we supposed to do? -- better than anyone else we've ever heard. Don't just take our word for it, though; read His words yourself:

Bhagavad-gita As It Is, 17.19

TRANSLATION

Penance performed out of foolishness, with self-torture or to destroy or injure others, is said to be in the mode of ignorance.

PURPORT:

There are instances of foolish penance undertaken by demons like Hiranyakasipu, who performed austere penances to become immortal and kill the demigods. He prayed to Brahma for such things, but ultimately he was killed by the Supreme Personality of Godhead. To undergo penances for something which is impossible is certainly in the mode of ignorance.
