If people can develop the broader vision that what is life, that this life is just a short life in our whole eternal life and therefore we should act responsibly considering that this is just one life in our eternal life and this particular life… very wonderful opportunity for those who want to achieve the maximum happiness in this very life, is…. Krishna Caitanya Mahaprabhu’s very special benediction is that in this very life you can achieve Krishna Consciousness, you can achieve complete perfection, actually it’s a great benediction, because I don’t know if the modern-day people will be so patient to have to wait several lives, you see. At least the opportunity to achieve in this life is very attractive to everyone.
