Struggle is the name of the game as long as we are in this material world

"Struggle is the name of the game as long as we are in this material world."

- H.H. Radhanath Swami Maharaj.

         One may be wonder stuck to hear struggle as a game. We have heard of many games - Cricket, football, tennis, kabbadi, chess and so ... on. But till today, we have never heard struggle as game. Sorry to say, but true, every step taken in life is a struggle. Not only human being, in fact every living entity in this world have to suffer. Let that be animals, Plants, birds, Humans every one struggles for their existence.

          When a child is in the womb of mother, it has to suffer a lot, as soon as a child is born all the real problem starts - BIRTH, OLD AGE, DISEASE and DEATH. Unfortunately, these are not the only problem, along with the real problem we get other problems free such as stress, depression, dualities, in life - failures and victory, joy and sorrow, relationship problem, misunderstanding, clashes etc. Everything becomes too much then a person starts thinking - "I should have been the victim in a bomb blast or whatever"they start thinking negative and waste their human life. These are common problem which everyone - whether a devotee or a non devotee faces in day to day life.

On 14th may 2012, an air crash in Nepal claimelife of 8 devotees.
This tragic incident challenged the faith of many.

Lord Krishna protects his devotees. So how did he allow this to happen? 
What is the fate of their souls? 
Many mature devotees from all over the world wrote nice consoling letters. These letters not only consoled the devotees but also gave them a spiritual vision to look at these tragic events. Auspicious or inauspicious
Offerings to departed devotees at ISKCON JuhuAfter such event there is always a debate – whether such a death is auspicious or inauspicious? We have to consider following points in this regard.

1.These devotees left there bodies in Muktinath,
the holy abode of the Lord. Is such a death in Lords Holy Abode auspicious or inauspicious?

2.These devotees were on a pilgrimage. They were away from the day to day interactions in the material world. So they were in the best of their consciousness as they were approaching Muktinath who is the giver of liberation. Is such a consciousness at the time of death auspicious or inauspicious?
