Any God-centered literature is preferable to mundane literature

by June 13, 2013

Everyone is addicted to hearing of the activities of another person,

whether a politician or a rich man or an imaginary character whose

activities are created in a novel. There are so many nonsensical

literatures, stories and books of speculative philosophy. Materialistic

persons are very interested in reading such literature, but when they are

presented with genuine books of knowledge like Srimad-Bhagavatam,

Bhagavad-gita, Visnu Purana or other scriptures of the world, such as the

Bible and Koran, they are not interested. These persons are condemned by

the supreme order as much as a hog is condemned. The hog is interested in

eating stool. If the hog is offered some nice preparation made of

condensed milk or ghee, he won’t like it; he would prefer obnoxious, badsmelling

stool, which he finds very relishable. Materialistic persons are

considered condemned because they are interested in hellish activities

and not in transcendental activities.

Srimad Bhagavatam 3.32.19 purport
