Maharaja Pariksit, he was already a very advanced person. He wanted to immediately prepare himself for the next life. Similarly, some people you meet will be very advanced, some people will be materialistic, you see. But if we simply pray to Lord Caitanya that He inspire us… Lord Nityananda, Advaita that they inspire us with that compassion… How Lord Advaita, how he was crying? He was crying for the living entities that they had become bahira mukha, they had become materialistic, they had forgotten Krishna, even in Navadvipa, even in Bengal, even in India, they have forgotten, and they are simply living for the temporary happiness of the body. They were staying up to eight o’ clock at night; they were sleeping even up to sunrise they were doing so many materialistic things then. They were no longer worshipping Krishna in devotion, but instead they were worshipping Him for material purposes and doing ritualistic activities simply for elevation to the heavenly planets. They were so materialistic then that Advaita Gosai was crying that Lord Krishna come down Himself to inspire them with pure love. Of course, what materialism they had then compared to what materialism is here now! You can imagine how Advaita Gosai is crying for these souls who are completely miserable.
