Lokanath Swami

Lokanath Swami ISKCON
August 25The desire to go to higher heavenly planets, is just like going from lower grade prison house to higher grade prison house.

Srila Prabhupada

Chanakya Pandit says that if there is one tree in the forest producing nice aromatic flower, that one tree can glorify the whole forest by the flavour of its flower. Similarly, if there is one tree in whose cavity there is a little fire, that one tree can burn into ashes the whole forest. So this simile is applicable anywhere. In a family if there is any one boy, he can glorify the whole family and similarly if there is bad boy he can turn the whole family into ashes.
