The object of present birth as a human being is to obtain freedom from the bondage of Maya and realize God, i.e., spiritualizing and making divine every fibre of your being gain and Love and unbroken direct nearness and contact of the Supreme Person or Puru-shottam.
If we subordinate ourselves to enemies like lust, anger, we forget the noble object of human existence and devote only to worldly enjoyment, and due to attachment to such enjoyment go on adding to heap of sins - far from realizing the divine heritage.
In whatever position we are, whatever may be the circumstances, devote ourself to the realization of goal, without caring for anything else. The circumstances will change of their own accord. Make this resolve within your mind that this alone is your first and foremost duty.
