The Nectar of Devotion, Vrndavana, 10.11.1972—

—– That is also not actual happiness, because, as I was explaining this morning, that even one merges into the Brahman effulgence after severe penances and austerity, there is chance of falling down.
There is chance. Aruhya krcchrena param padam tatah patanti [SB 10.2.32]. Param pada is to merge into the Brahman effulgence existence. But from there also, one falls down, as I was giving the example of many big sannyasis in the modern age. They are very learned scholar. They took to sannyasa, giving up this world as false, but again, after some time, they come to politics, sociology. That means that is their falldown. ——–——–
