The great mistake of modern
civilization is to encroach upon others’ property as though it were one's own and to thereby create an unnecessary disturbance
of the laws of nature. These laws are very strong. No living entity can violate them. Only one who is Krishna conscious can
easily overcome the stringency of the laws of nature and thus become happy and peaceful in the world.
As a state is protected by the department of law and order, so the
state of Universe, of which this earth is only an insignificant fragment, is protected by the laws of nature. This material
nature is one of the different potencies of God, who is the ultimate proprietor of everything that be. This earth is, therefore,
the property of God, but we, the living entities, especially the so-called civilized human beings, are claiming God's property
as our own, under both an individual and collective false conception. If you want peace, you have to remove this false conception
from your mind and from the world. This false claim of proprietorship by the human race on earth is partly or wholly the cause
of all disturbances of peace on earth.
Foolish and so-called
civilized men are claiming proprietary rights on the property of God because they have now become godless. You cannot be happy
and peaceful in a godless society. In the Bhagavad-gitä Lord Krishna says that He is the factual enjoyer of all activities
of the living entities, that He is the Supreme Lord of all universes, and that He is the well-wishing friend of all beings.
When the people of the world know this as the formula for peace, it is then and there that peace will prevail.
Therefore, if you want peace at all, you will have to change your
consciousness into Krishna consciousness, both individually and collectively, by the simple process of chanting the holy name
of God. This is a standard and recognized process for achieving peace in the world. We therefore recommend that everyone become
Krishna conscious by chanting Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Räma, Hare Räma, Räma Räma, Hare
This is practical,
simple, and sublime. Four hundred and eighty years ago this formula was introduced in India by Lord Sri Caitanya, and now
it is available in your country. Take to this simple process of chanting as above mentioned, realize your factual position
by reading the Bhagavad-gitä As It Is, and reestablish your lost relationship with Krishna, God. Peace and prosperity will
be the immediate worldwide result.
Hare Krishna ...
