Lord! The real status of an individual does not depend on the extent of his wealth, his wishes or his mansions, and not even in the closeness to royalty. It lies only in the intensity of devotion to you in the understanding and assimilation of the essence of the VEdas and the Upanishads. Mere lip-service to the passage in the VEdas and scriptures, display of supernatural miracles, mere pretance of doing japa or practising austerities, and sacrifices conducted for fruition of one's material desires do not at all contribute to ones intrinsic status. To be ignorant of the doctrines and principles preached and demonstrated by RAma in his incarnation detracts from the status of man whatever his pretensions otherwise.
