So we call Bhakti Akshay, if one starts even little Bhakti, every type of fear disappears from their life, and they don’t have to take birth again and again in this material life. This is permanent happiness; people drink alcohol and get happy, but that happiness is temporary. As soon as the effects of alcohol go away, you’ll again feel sadness and despair.
