The gospel presented by materialistic society has been implanted deep in our heads. We believe the universe owes us maximum gratification, entertainment, and fulfillment. Haunted by this gospel, we ask:
Am I following my dreams? Am I fulfilling my passions? Am I with the most exciting partner?
Despite our feverish attempts to live a Me-centered life, the most amazing thing is that we are clueless about who the real “me” is. We ignorantly believe we are this temporary material body. Krishna explains that this investment in ignorance brings it predictable reward: frustration and anger.
