Why trying to satisfy everyone materially won't work

    Posted on January 1, 2015

By nature, everyone is endowed with individual tastes and preferences, therefore what satisfies one many may not satisfy another, so there will always be some dissatisfaction and discrepancies of all sorts. Therefore, if we try to satisfy everyone's well-being on the material platform, we shall never find the end of it, and we shall be frustrated in our attempts, and there will be protest, etc.

From Srila Prabhupada's letter to: Secretary to Minister of Education and Culture (U.S.S.R.) --  Los Angeles 7 June, 1972
