Nature Of Material Enjoyment- HG RSP Speaks

HH Devamrita Maharaja gives a beautiful example: Someone is in a desert; he is very hungry and very-very thirsty for water, and suddenly a big aero plane comes and flies with a big label put up there "Fresh cooling water!" and this person is now thinking that the aero plane is going to shower water on him and his thirst will be quenched and the plane lands down.

A person comes with an empty Bisleri bottle of water, except at the bottom there is a drop of water there and says, "Show your hands" and he puts one drop and goes away. This is the nature of material enjoyment, "Over promise and under delivery!”  Maya is expert in making huge promises to allure us but offers us very little and cheats us by creating hankering and frustration.
