That everything should be done with a higher purpose. That is how we moderate. Sense gratification is not bad to the limit that we need it. And if we make sense gratification the goal, then it’s bad. The goal should be to serve the supreme person, to become devotees. To become liberated from this material world and engage ourselves purely in His pure devotional service. It’s considered to be the purpose of human life.
