Pessimism is required

    Posted on January 24, 2017

We must be very much pessimistic, not at all optimistic of this world. Unless you become pessimistic, you will not be able to go back to home. If you have little attraction for this world — "It is good" — then you have to remain here. Yes. Krsna is so strict.

Srila Prabhupada — May 17, 1975, Perth
