There’s no satisfaction in the material world. And the material world, if we try to enjoy unlimitedly, we get entangled in such a way we suffer every day. It’s the nature of the mode of passion. Passion looks enjoyable in the beginning and it brings suffering in the end. Goodness, there’s a little suffering in the beginning, but happiness in the end.
