FOUR DEFECTS OF CONDITIONED SOULS!
Four defects of conditioned souls!
Every Person in this material world will have the following four defects. So, none is perfect in this world. We should first know our defects and the lead a life surrendered to Krishna because Krishna is the master of senses and hence He will make us perfect and pure souls!
(1) COMMITING MISTAKES
Therefore, no one can say that he never committed any mistakes. That is, no one can claim that he is always acting right. If anyone says so, he is a liar.
(2) HE IS INVARIABLY ILLUSIONED
Wrong decisions. He will insult those who are genuinely helping him, but, he will praise those who are pretending to be good. Therefore, more disappointments in his life.
(3) HE HAS THE TENDENCY TO CHEAT OTHERS
Always be cautious, because, when opportunity comes, everyone has the tendency to cheat you. There may be a very few exemptions. Because, they have the natural tendency to cheat.
(4) HE IS LIMITED BY IMPERFECT SENSES
Our ears can not hear beyond certain decibels of sound. Our eyes can not see far away or too near objects. Our brain can not store too much of feeds at the same time. One can not eat beyond a limit. One can not cry beyond a limit. Thus, all the senses are limited and imperfect.
Srila Prabhupada, the founder of ISKCON says in morning walk on 3.12.1973 in Los Angeles:
“ Mistake, Thre cannot be... That is the difference between God and ourself. We are living entity, God is also living entity. But He has no four defects. We have got four defects. We commit mistake, we are illusioned, our senses are imperfect, and we cheat. God does not do all these things. That is the difference between God and ourselves. He does not commit mistake. He is not illusioned. He does not cheat, and His senses are perfect. Vedahaṁ samatitani .”
Therefore, try your best to avoid such mistakes or offences in future. When you keep the defect-free personality Krishna with you, you can get the support from Krishna to come out of these defects that means, you have become free from the conditioned status.
