Sri Ishopanishad

The 4 Defects of the Conditioned Soul

Namaste to all,

In the introduction of the Sri Ishopanishad, Srila Prabhupada lectured about the 4 kinds of defects of the conditioned soul namely: 1. he must commit mistakes 2. to be illusioned 3. cheating propensity 4. imperfect senses.

I have never forgotten this 4 defects eversince. Remembrance makes me a little more humble and more alert of my speech and actions. And increases my desire to be free from the conditioned state. The conditioned state is full of suffering and devoid of hope for peace and happiness. I hope by learning and practicing Krishna Consciousness, I attain the elusive peace and happiness.

Hare Krishna to all,
Vishnudas711
