If asked how humans have progressed over the past centuries, most people would point to technology and science and the knowledge and luxuries they have brought. But how do these things satisfy the soul’s desire for happiness and eternal life? His Divine Grace A. C. Bhakti Vedanta Swami, one of the greatest philosophers of the twentieth century, implores us not to lose sight of our true hankerings and needs. Technology and science are good and have their place, but shouldn’t distract us from our most important pursuit: to transcend this world and awaken our spiritual nature.
