Question: Why are the theists so loud in convincing others that God exists? Are they afraid they may be wrong?
Answer: The thiests are compassionate for the atheists, for they are in ignorance and fixed hell to be their final destination.
Lord Krishna says in the Bhagavad Gita –
“The living entities in this conditioned world are My eternal, fragmental parts. Due to conditioned life, they are struggling very hard with the six senses, which include the mind.”
So all the living entities are the part and parcels of the Supreme Lord Krishna, and thus are dear to him.
The only cause of their suffering in this conditional state of life is their forgetfulness of their eternal relationship with the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
This eternal relationship can be realised through the process of chanting the holy names of the Lord “Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare Hare Ram Hare Ram Ram Ram Hare Hare”.
As we are his tiny part and parcels, our intrinsic characteristic is to render loving devotional service unto him.
Just as body can be nourished only if all the parts supply the food stuff to the stomach, similarly, we can be happy only if we try to serve the Supreme Spirit, for without serving the Lord, all our attempts for happiness will go in vain, just like, hands cannot enjoy the food stuff independently, without serving the body. This is the process of Krishna Consciousness.
Infact this is the aim of the human form of life!
As humans, we have a developed consciousness, and higher intelligence, that the animals don’t have.
Still we are engaged in the basic acts of sleeping, eating, mating, defending which even the animals are doing, then what’s the difference between the two?
You may say that we are doing these in a civilised way.
But the act is the same!
You sleep in an air conditioned apartment, and the animals sleep on the streets.
You eat in multi star restaurants, palatable dishes, and the animals eat raw, uncooked foodstuff which is readily available in the nature.
You have your own social life, sex life, in complete privacy, with different arrangements, and the animals have their own, without privacy.
You defend using arms and ammunition, big big missiles, and animals might use their claws and teeth.
So what you’re living is nothing but a polished animal life!
The difference is-
“Only human beings can understand God, animals cannot.”
We got this body for a purpose. Just like a Governor is different from a constable, in the facilities, because the former has got higher duties to do.
We’re misusing our intelligence in animalistic acts, out of ignorance.
An inquisitive mind will ask the question – “So how do we know what is the purpose for this special body that we’re having?”
The purpose is, that human beings can solve the real problems of life: birth, death, old age and diseases.
But due to ignorance of the self, the modern civilization is trying to satisfy the bodily demands and is neglecting the primary goal of life – self realisation, or understand one constitutional relationship with the Lord, and that can be possible by rendering devotional service to the Lord.
