An expiry Date

Everybody in the material world has its time limit, an expiry date! In this way we have to go away, leave everything, leave our wife, children, home, everything. Whatever bank balance and money we have, we have to leave everything behind and go. And after this life what birth, what kind of body we get who knows that. So being in a human birth we have a special opportunity to go back to Godhead. So, we should try for that, through one of the yogas. I think that Vidura is trying to get Dhṛtarāṣṭra to do the aṣṭāṅga-yoga. But for us the method is bhakti-yoga. Just by hearing and chanting the holy names we can go back to Godhead. And we should use this life trying to keep our mind on Kṛṣṇa, not on household luxuries.
