Smart Quote of the Day, March 21, 2016

Complexity: 
Easy

". . . One should therefore not indulge in hearing and speaking of the rubbish activities of worldly politicians and so-called big men in society but should mold his life in such a way that he can engage in godly activities without wasting a second."

Today's Smart Quote is from the purport to Mantra Seventeen of Sri Isopanishad:

TRANSLATION

Let this temporary body be burnt to ashes, and let the air of life be merged with the totality of air. Now, O my Lord, please remember all my sacrifices, and because You are the ultimate beneficiary, please remember all that I have done for You.

PURPORT (excerpt):

So-called human society is generally engaged at night in sleeping and having sex and during the daytime in earning as much money as possible or else in shopping for family maintenance. People have very little time to talk about the Personality of Godhead or to inquire about Him. They have dismissed God's existence in so many ways, primarily by declaring Him to be impersonal, that is, without sense perception. But in the Vedic literature -- whether the Upanishads, Vedanta-sutra, Bhagavad-gita or Srimad-Bhagavatam -- it is declared that the Lord is a sentient being and is supreme over all other living entities.

His glorious activities are identical with Himself. One should therefore not indulge in hearing and speaking of the rubbish activities of worldly politicians and so-called big men in society but should mold his life in such a way that he can engage in godly activities without wasting a second. Sri Isopanishad directs us toward such godly activities.
