Real Need

“One who runs after his senses just like the dogs running here and there he can never achieve perfection in life, he can never achieve liberation or realization of Krsna. So there’s no essential need of leaving family, going to forest. The real need is whether in family, or whether in temple or whether one is single or whether one is married, to transform one’s consciousness to divine consciousness, Krsna consciousness, serving Krsna, instead of serving the dead matter.”
