The heaven, which is the fruit of doing social service is temporary

 

Another human incarnation of Lord Datta was Manikya Prabhu, who as a boy excreted in the Vedic fire alter and His excretion was found to be a lump of gold. The Vedic fire alter is Yajna, which represents the path to heaven. The heaven means luxurious life, which involves excess wealth indicated by the lump of gold. But the lump of gold was treated to be the excretion, which is considered to be wastage. This means that the luxurious life is wastage only. The heaven, which is the fruit of doing social service is temporary (Ksheene punye….Gita) and is not like the permanent bliss of the Lord. The present politicians who do social service without the name of the Lord, just to become wealthy and lead a luxurious heavenly life, should take the message from the Lord Datta.
