We are all alone in this world

"There are 7 billion people on the planet, how many are experiencing what we are experiencing? Basically, only us. That's always the thing, we are always thinking, we want to share whatever our happiness is or distress is with others, because only we know what they are, others don't. If you look at it, factually the sannyasa understanding means understanding our actual position in the world, because we are actually all alone in the world. We only know what we experience, we only are in the situation that we are in, no one else is in it. So therefore it does at the end come down, it's just us and the Lord and how much faith we have in the Lord, how much faith we have in the devotional process, and that's what we have. Then on that platform then we can actually take advantage of and appreciate devotees, because they are unique persons who are serving the Lord, they have a unique identity. So then we appreciate and take advantage of their realizations."
