Another question is what we hear of the Kali Yuga. We must try to make the best of our present age only, and try to do good things and live happily in this world. Past is past, and it will never come again, and we are not sure of the future. Present is not permanent. It will be always changing and moving. That is why we say, “Be good, do good, see good – that is the way to God.” Try to be good, fill your heart with good and lead a good life, and the result also will be good. When one falls sick, it is not in any way useful to feel sorry over it. After falling sick, it is necessary that we should somehow try to take proper medicine and get over the sickness. Instead of weeping over the disease we have got, it is better to try and get it cured and help the body to get well. So also instead of feeling sorry for the bad things that are happening in this Kali Yuga, we must try always to be good and remove the bad from this world. We are seeing many bad things and distractions among the students nowadays. You are all students, and you have to try to remove all of those distractions and bad things. Try to be good so that you may reap happiness as a result. Students should not give place to bad associations and bad ideas. The right way of leading a good life in this world is the spiritual, moral and ethical way. We must care for these three paths: the spiritual, the moral and the dharmic. Where there is love, there is no room either for hatred or for disease. When there is no love, there will be hatred towards others and that hatred will develop into a big disease. Jealousy, anger, and ego are the biggest diseases. If you want to keep yourself aloof from these three diseases, you must try to love everybody.
