Suffering another way. Nobody is free from suffering. I have already explained, there are three kinds of sufferings. So who is free from these sufferings? You may not be suffering from any bodily disease, but you may be suffering from mental agony. You may not be suffering from mental agony, but you may suffer suffering imposed by others, what . . . there are so many sufferings. This place is suffering.
It is stated in the Bhagavad-gītā (BG 8.15), duḥkhālayam aśāśvatam: "This place is for suffering." Duḥkhālayam. Duḥka means suffering; ālayam means place. Aśāśvatam, and still you cannot make adjustment. If you say: "All right, let there be little suffering. Let me stay here," that also will not be allowed. You will be kicked out, "Get out!" Then you have to accept another body—you do not know what kind of body. So these things are there. Don't think that little happy life for ten years or twenty years is the solution of your problem. That is not solution. Real solution is different. That is described in the Bhagavad-gītā:
- mām upetya kaunteya
- duḥkhālayam aśāśvatam
- nāpnuvanti mahātmānaḥ
- saṁsiddhiṁ paramāṁ gatāḥ
- (BG 8.15)
