So the sound is very important thing. The sound is the cause of our bondage in this material world. Just like in big, big cities they are attached to the sound vibrated by the cinema artist. And not only that, so many other things we are hearing through the radio message. Attachment for the sound. And because it is material sound, we are becoming materially entangled, entangled more and more. Some actress, some cinema artist, singing, and people are so fond of hearing that singing, that the artist is paid fifteen thousand rupees for one song. There are many here in Bombay. So just see how much attraction we have got for the material sound vibration. Similarly, the same attachment, if we turn to hear about Hare Krsna maha-mantra, then we become liberated, the same sound. One is material; one is spiritual. So you practice to be attached by this spiritual sound vibration. Then your life will be successful. Ceto-darpana-marjanam bhava-maha-davagni-nirvapanam sreyah-kairava-candrika-vitaranam vidya-vadhu-jivanam anandambudhi-vardhanam prati-padam purnamrtasvadanam... param vijayate sri-krsna-sankirtanam (CC Antya 20.12) So this Krsna consciousness movement is meant for this purpose, that "You have already attachment for sound. Now just transfer this attachment for spiritual sound. Then your life will be successful." This is Hare Krsna movement, teaching people how to transfer the attachment from material sound to the spiritual sound. Narottama dasa Thakura therefore sings, golokera prema-dhana, hari-nama-sankirtana, rati na janmilo more tay. This sound coming from the spiritual world, golokera prema-dhana, by chanting, by hearing this sound, we shall develop our original dormant love for God. That is wanted. Prema pum-artho mahan. In the material world we are accepting dharmartha-kama-moksa (SB 4.8.41) as very important. Purusartha. Dharma, to become religious, and by becoming religious, we develop our economic development. Dhanam dehi, rupam dehi, yaso dehi, dehi dehi. Kama. Why dehi dehi? Now, kama, to fulfill our desires, lusty desires. Dharmartha-kama, and when we are disgusted or unable to fulfill desires, then we want moksa, to become one with God. This is the four kinds of material business. But spiritual business is prema pum-artho mahan. To achieve love of Godhead, that is the highest perfection. Prema pum-artho mahan. So to achieve this goal of life, prema pum-artho mahan, in this age especially, Kali-yuga, because we cannot do any other thing, it is very, very difficult. The time is full of obstacles. Therefore kalau... This is the method, harer nama harer nama harer namaiva kevalam: (CC Adi 17.21) "Chant Hare Krsna mantra," kevalam, "only." Kalau nasty eva nasty eva nasty eva gatir anyatha. In the Kali-yuga, because main business is how to get relief from this material bondage... Bhutva bhutva praliyate (BG 8.19). People do not understand even that, what is really our distress. Krsna says, the Supreme Personality of Godhead says personally, "These are your miseries." What? Janma-mrtyu-jara-vyadhi: (BG 13.9) "Repetition of birth and death. This is your real misery of life." What you are thinking of this misery or that misery? They are all temporary. They are all under the laws of material nature. You cannot get out of it. Prakrteh kriyamanani gunaih karmani sarvasah (BG 3.27). Prakrti will force you to do something because you have contaminated the material modes of nature. Therefore you have to act under the direction of this prakrti, material nature. And so long you are under this material nature, you have to accept this birth, death, old age and disease. This is your real misery.
