Partial interest in elevating principles can obstruct ultimate elevation
According to Vedic thought, there are four elevating principles,
namely religiosity, economic development, sense gratification and
liberation. Persons who are simply interested in material enjoyment make
plans to execute prescribed duties. They are interested in the three
elevating processes of religious rituals, economic elevation and sense
enjoyment. By developing their economic condition, they can enjoy
material life. Materialistic persons, therefore, are interested in those
elevating processes, which are called trai-vargika. Trai means “three”;
vargika means “elevating processes.” Such materialistic persons are never
attracted by the Supreme personality of Godhead. Rather, they are
antagonistic towards Him.
