SB 1.8 - Kṛṣṇa's glance ensures prosperity

Kṛṣṇa beautified the kingdom of the Pāṇḍavas with the impressions of His feet like the flag, thunderbolt, elephant goad, lotus etc. Thus the kingdom flourished by such auspicious signs. Kuntī was afraid of ill luck in the absence of the Lord. All cities and villages flourished because the herbs and grains were in abundance, the trees were full of fruits, rivers were flowing, the hills were full of minerals and the oceans full of wealth. All this was due to the Lord’s glancing over them. Human prosperity flourishes by natural gifts and not by gigantic industrial enterprises, which are products of a godless civilization. Human beings may take advantage of the natural gifts provided and be satisfied without being captivated by the exploitative motive of lording it over material nature. We need to be obedient to the laws of the Lord and achieve the perfection of life by devotional service.
