[gita-talk] Daily Bhagavad Gita Message - Gita 16-13


Sixteenth Chapter


idamadya mayā labdhamimaṁ prāpsye manoratham
idamastīdamapi me bhaviṣyati punardhanam

(They wishfully think this way-- ) "Today this much has been secured by me; now, this much wealth I have and so much more wealth also shall be mine hereafter."
Question-- Sometimes, the aspirants having divine nature (while conducting their business) may also think that so much work has been completed and this much work remains to be done, and it also would be completed, so much money has come from business, so much is to be given to someone etc. Then what is the difference between them and people having demoniacal nature?
Answer-- Though both appear to have the same tendencies but there is a vast difference in their goals. An aspirant's goal is God-realization, so he is not engrossed in hankering after pleasures and prosperity. But the sole aim of persons of demoniacal nature is to enjoy the worldly prosperity and sensual pleasures; therefore, they remain deeply engrossed in these tendencies.
