“Whatever direction is there, you take that. The medicine is given. Doctor gives direction, ‘So many drops you can take’. Now you say, ‘Oh, the good medicine, let me eat the whole thing, I can become cured immediately’. Then you die. You have to take, enjoy—but according to direction. God does not say that ‘You don’t enjoy’. You are, what is called, ānandamayo ‘bhyāsāt (Vedānta-sūtra 1.1.12). A living entity means ānandamaya, enjoyment. But that ānanda, where it is permanent ānanda, how we have to reach that permanent ānanda, that is being taught. Otherwise, you foolish, you’ll eat the whole medicine and die. That’s all.”
