An intelligent person does not take part in the sources of misery, which are due to contact with material senses, O son of Kunti, such pleasures have a beginning and an end, and so the wise does not delight in them.

Material sense pleasures are due to the contact of the material senses, which are all temporary. A liberated soul is not interested in anything which is temporary. Knowing well the joys of transcendental pleasures, how can a liberated soul agree to enjoy false pleasure? In the Padma Purana it is said:

"The mystics derive unlimited transcendental pleasures from the Absolute Truth, and therefore the Supreme Absolute Truth, the Personality of Godhead, is also known as Rama."

In the Srimad-Bhagavatam also it is said:

"My dear sons, there is no reason to labor very hard for sense pleasure while in this human form of life; such pleasures are available to the stool eaters [hogs]. Rather, you should undergo penances in this life by which your existence will be purified, and, as a result, you will be able to enjoy unlimited transcendental bliss." (Bhag. 5.5.1)

Therefore, those who are true yogis or learned transcendentalists are not attracted by sense pleasures, which are the causes of continuous material existence. The more one is addicted to material pleasures, the more he is entrapped by material miseries.


Enlightenment Secret:
"As humans, we always seek for pleasure, but we are trying to enjoy those things which has a beginning and an end. The truly wise enjoy too. However, their enjoyment is ecstatical and much more pleasurable than any other drug, women, or victory. It remains a mystery, a mystic secret between the meditator and the graceful object of worship and love. By elevating the state of consciousness, to that state of ever-increasing bliss, one does not depart from the truth, even in the midst of all darkness."
