Bhagavatam-daily 128 – Canto-11, Chapter-08, Text-44 – Worldly desire is the cause of suffering and is itself suffering

Srimad Bhagavatam Canto-11, Chapter-08, Text-44
asa hi paramam duhkham
nairasyam paramam sukham
yatha sañchidya kantasam
sukham susvapa pingala

Material desire is undoubtedly the cause of the greatest unhappiness, and freedom from such desire is the cause of the greatest happiness. Therefore, completely cutting off her desire to enjoy so-called lovers, Pingala very happily went to sleep.

Thus end the purports of the humble servants of His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada to the Eleventh Canto, Eighth Chapter, of the Srimad-Bhagavatam, entitled “The Story of Pingala.”
