Discuss and understand the nature of miseries ………………………Nectarean Mellows

When a devotee is thoroughly understanding the imminent dangers and misery of the material existence devotees are humbled but that is because he knows that I cannot protect myself from the sufferings; I can’t; it is impossible, I am a jiva atma and the material energy is pervading you in this existence, she is all powerful in that state. When we chant the holy names we are taking shelter, we are praying for mercy, it is not a ritual anymore, it is not just a regulative principle, it is not just something else in our life, it is our focus, it is our goal, it is the only means by which we can achieve something that is real. If someone puts a gun to your head and said I am going to shoot in five seconds how will you chant in that five seconds, you won’t be thinking about the latest ISKCON gossip, you won’t be thinking about how you are going to decorate your home tomorrow, you won’t be thinking about your children’s education, hopefully you will be thinking Krsna save me; Hare Krsna, Hare Krsna, Krsna Krsna, Hare Hare, Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare.

So if we are not learning about material existence then when sufferings come, we will be bewildered, we will loose our faith, we will not know what we are suppose to do, why is this happening to me, how is this happening to me and how am I suppose to deal with it. Materialistic people and even a neophyte devotees when they go through tragic crisis which bring about suffering in their lives, they become confused and bewildered by that suffering and what happens when there is no suffering? when you actually have some temporary form of enjoyment then you become even more confused and bewildered about what you are suppose to do what your hopes truly are; so therefore Srila Prabhupada very greatly emphasises we must discuss and understand the nature of the miseries in the material existence so that when we are suffering, we know what is happening and know what we suppose to do about it and when we are enjoying, we understand what is happening and what we are suppose to do about it. So it is very important that we study these books and we understand how this material nature makes us suffer.
