A fellow passenger in the aircraft from Buenos Aires, Argentina to Houston, Texas, USA, asked me today how I enjoyed my trip to Argentina. My response was, “I like the lovely nature of the Argentinian Krishna devotees.” Then he asked, “Do you like the country?” I responded that I like all of Krishna’s creation. However, I noticed four common things everywhere I traveled to: eating, sleeping, mating, and defending; but that unless we raise our consciousness by some definitive devotional practice, we cannot be happy. He concurred, with personal experiences and stories from opulent friends who had complained to him they were not happy despite all their opulence.
