〉 The Absolute Truth is Eternal
God is eternal, meaning he has always existed.
The laws created by God for man to follow (religion) must be eternal.
God’s teachings (scriptures) must have eternally existed.
If God has eternally existed then Man must have known him eternally.
That eternal religion which was created by the eternal God is called Sanatan Dharma (the eternal religion). Which is also known as the Vedic religion or Hinduism. The eternal teachings of God or scriptures are known as the Vedic scriptures. The oldest scriptures on the Planet.That person who has eternally been known by man to be God is Lord Krishna. This is the absolute truth.
〉 The Simple Way to Determine the Truth
The truth is that which has always existed.
2+2=4 is true today, it was true 5000 years ago, it was true 5 trillion years ago, and it will be true in 5 trillion years time. Thus that which is existing today but did not exist 5000 years ago cannot be the truth. Sanatan Dharma is existing today, it existed 5000 years ago, it existed 5 trillion years ago and it will exist in 5 trillion years time. Sanatan Dharma is the truth.
Your grandfather has died, you will also die, and your children will also die. Death is certain, it’s only a matter of time. Still you are madly accumulating money and working very hard all day like a donkey. You do not care for the soul which is eternal, but you care for the body which is temporary. This is ignorance. In ignorance the soul becomes degraded and after this life. Such people take birth as dogs and hogs.
“ In the grim clutches of mäyä, the first-class prisoners of this material world (you and I) wrongly think themselves happy because they are rich, powerful, resourceful and so on. These foolish creatures do not know that they are nothing but play dolls in the hands of material nature and that at any moment material nature’s pitiless intrigues can crush to dust all their plans for godless activities. Such foolish prisoners cannot see that however they improve their position by artificial means, the calamities of repeated birth, death, disease and old age are always beyond the jurisdiction of their control. Foolish as they are, they neglect these major problems of life and busy themselves with false things that cannot help them solve their real problems. They know that they do not want to suffer death or the pangs of disease and old age, but under the influence of the illusory energy, they are grossly negligent and therefore do nothing to solve the problems. This is called Mäyä. “
[Srila Prabhupada Cc. Adi 3.98 Purport]
