we have to be fixed in our Krsna consciousness and not be distracted, otherwise it is like the child who has a valuable thing, but gets cheated by someone offering a lozenge, a sweetmeat in exchange for the valuable thing. We have the valuable jewel of Krsna consciousness in our hand , we can achieve love for Krsna , we can achieve the spiritual world, we can help the living entities to come out of their ignorance , come out of their bewilderment that they’re this material body and help them to be able to realise that that they are eternal living entities. All these abilities are there, but maya will try to distract by various tricks. We should avoid that. We should go to Krsna and ask Krsna for the greatest blessing.
