What’s the value of life?
Kamala dala jala jivana talamala, life is just flickering like a drop of water on a lotus leaf. In one second everything is just topsy-turvy. In one second everything can be destroyed. So better that we give our mind and our thoughts and our actions and words in the service of Hari, service of Krishna.
Bhajahū hari-pada nīti re, this should be our daily activity. This let us take only this as our goal, just to serve His lotus feet. Then we are fearless. Then we can have the perfection of life.
