What is real progress?

What is genuine advancement of human civilisation? Is it the ability to gratify our physical senses and mind in so many different ways? Does it destroy our own habitat? Modern society makes it seem so. Is it possible that, as the ‘most advanced species of life’ we could be missing the real point of our existence? The bhakti yoga texts illuminate the human purpose, a deeply fulfilling and logical cure to our misdirected attempts at progress.
