Civilization and Transcendence
In this small book Srila Prabhupada addresses the fallacies of our modern so-called advanced civilization. After pointing out that today the vast majority of people do not know what real progress is, he explains that in the Vedic civilization people strive not for the false progress of economic development but rather for the true advancement of self-realization and God realization. Srila Prabhupada’s replies to a questionnaire from Bhavan’s Journal. An overview of Krishna consciousness.
If asked how humans have progressed over the past centuries, most people would point to technology and science and the knowledge and luxuries they have brought. But how do these things satisfy the soul’s desire for happiness and eternal life? They don’t and never can.
Srila Prabhupada implores us not to lose sight of our true hankerings and needs. Technology and science are good and have their place, but shouldn’t distract us from our most important pursuit: to transcend this world and awaken our spiritual nature.
