“O learned one, in this iron age of Kali men have but short lives. They are quarrelsome, lazy, misguided, unlucky and, above all, always disturbed.” (Shrimad Bhagavatam, 1.1.10)
Friend1: One of God’s names is Shripati.
Friend2: Yes. The husband of Shri.
Friend1: Who is the goddess of fortune.
Friend2: Also known as Lakshmi Devi. She has non-different incarnations like Radha and Sita.
Friend1: Since He is married to her, God is the most fortunate person.
Friend2: That is the meaning to the word Bhagavan. Vishnu is Bhagavan. No one is more fortunate than Him.
Friend1: What about people on earth? Those going through the cycle of birth and death – how do we define “fortunate”?
Friend2: Well, what do you think?
Friend1: Typically, it’s if they have a lot of money. If they get a lot of stuff. It’s correlated with being lucky.
