    Such a powerful message explained so nicely. Radhanath Swami Maharaj describes lust as shackles which keep us binded to the material world.

    Incredible article…….! Unfortunately practically everyone is deprived of this information in today’s world where sex life is glorified in all types of mass media and the whole material world revolves around it.
    All glories to Celibate monks of RadhaGopinath ashram who realize this truth and take all the risks to share this with others. It is swimming upstream in a river indeed…!

    The taste of sex pleasure is very strong; it is after all a perverted reflection of the highest spiritual pleasure, called the adi rasa. Only when we experience pleasure in Krishna consciousness can we give up the pursuit of the mundane pleasures of sense gratification.

    Super analogy of a King falling into a well and seeing Death from all sides. True!our lives are like that and we have to make an attempt to transcend the miseries of this material world by taking shelter of the Lord and engaging in devotional service.

    Only when we experience pleasure in Krishna consciousness can we give up the pursuit of the mundane pleasures of sense gratification. For this we need the causeless mercy of Krishna

    So true, the lust, the inevetiable force which comes sometimes despite of being situated anywhere. Have personally that during Ekadashi, associating with determined devotees, is some thought also know on this, we tend to ignore..but without association we are left to doom. We have sincerly pray for the mercy of lord and doing our best to serve the Vaisnavas and engage our mind completely in krishna conscious activity….to get away from this lust….

    Denial is not the solution, but, proper and full knowledge is how we can deal with lust. Radhanath Swami presents the fact that sex desire is universally present and found in all living entities.

    The description given in the Mahabharat shoots arrows of wisdom which has penetrated my heart filled with ignorance,I pray to all the devotees to pray for me so that I can conquer this ghastly enemy of lust.

    Very nice article.It is giving us a complete idea of our material predicament.The Proper solution to overcome the lust,greed and anger is to engage ourselves in practicing Krishna Consciousness,The God Consciousness.All material solutions to this strong material desire will be useless.Thanks so much to Author for highlighting the issue which is very easily ignored in this world.In fact sex is given more importance in this current time ,not knowing danger that is lying ahead for those follow that path.

    The story of the plight of a King is vividly described to teach us how like the King we are in the same position in the material world, yet we are trying to be happy by enjoying through the senses. What a pitiful condition!

    If one gets the higher taste, then automatically he gives up the lower taste. By the mercy of Guru One can get the higher taste. ALL glories to HH Radhanatha Svami Maharaja.

    Very true Only by Krishna’s grace we can be released from the clutches of sex and enter into the bhakti rasa, the pleasure of devotional service.

    i liked the oint that what is the purpose of this human form of life that is to convert the formidable enemy of lust into pure love. also i got the way of sctually doing it from this article.
    one has to taste the higher taste of the Bhakti only then one can give up this lower attraction for lust. tahnk you.
