Srimad Bhagavatam 12.03.27 - Quest for Immortality-End of the End (download mp3)
by Prem Gauranga Prabhu at ISKCON Chowpatty
prabhavanti yadā sattve
tadā kṛta-yugaṁ vidyāj
jñāne tapasi yad ruciḥ
When the mind, intelligence and senses are solidly fixed in the mode of goodness, that time should be understood as Satya-yuga, the age of truth. People then take pleasure in knowledge and austerity.
The word kṛta means “performed” or “executed.” Thus in the age of truth all religious duties are duly performed, and people take great pleasure in spiritual knowledge and austerity. Even in the Kali-yuga, those who are situated in the mode of goodness take pleasure in the cultivation of spiritual knowledge and the regulated performance of austerity. This sublime state of existence is possible for one who has conquered sex desire.
