Value Of Human Life

Man fails to realize the value of human life. He feels proud and is hypnotized by the attraction of wealth as the means of earthly enjoyments. Thus indulging in sense objects he acts erroneously and arbitrarily. He fails to see the other world, his mind does not entertain such ideas that he will, after death, have to take birth compulsorily in various wombs in order to harvest the deeds done by him.

It is foolish to think that only whatever is visible to the eyes is the only real world; only this exists. Enjoying the sense objects to the maximum possible extent is the only wisdom, is a gross misunderstanding. What remains after that? Who has seen the other world? The other world is only a fancy of some people etc. The person entertaining such thoughts repeatedly falls under the jaws of death and the God of death pushes him in so many wombs according to his deeds. The cycle of birth and death never comes to an end for such a person.
