The system of four orders of life and four castes in terms of quality and work known as Varnashram Dharma, is the beginning of real human life and Maharaj Yudhisthira as the protector of this system of human activities, timely retired from active life as a Sannyasi handing over the charge of the administration to a trained up younger prince like Maharaj Parikshit. The scientific system of Varnashram Dharma divides the human life in four divisions of occupation and four orders of the duration of life. The four orders of the duration of life as Brahmachari, Grihastha, Vanaprastha and Sanyas are to be followed by all irrespective of the occupational division. Modern politicains do not wish to retire from active life even they are old enough but Maharaj as an ideal king voluntarily retired from active administrative life, for preparing himself for the next life. Everyone's life must be so arranged that at the last stage of life say at least 15 to 20 years of the last stage of life prior to death, may be absolutely devoted in the matter of devotional service of the Lord to attain the highest prefection of life. It is really foolishness to engage oneself all the days of life in the matter of material enjoyment and fruitive activities; because as long as the mind shall remain absorbed in the matter of fruitive work for material enjoyment there is no chance of getting out from conditioned life of material bondage. Nobody may follow a suicidal policy of neglecting the supreme task of attaining the highest perfection of life namely back to home, back-to-Godhead. #/div# #/div# please wait#div class="mw-parser-output"##p class="mw-empty-elt"# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TEXT_39"#TEXT 39#/span##/h4# #div class="verse"# #dl##dd#mathurāyāṁ tathā vajraṁ#/dd# #dd#śūrasena-patiṁ tataḥ#/dd# #dd#prājāpatyāṁ nirūpyeṣṭim#/dd# #dd#agnīn apibad īśvaraḥ#/dd##/dl# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="SYNONYMS"#SYNONYMS#/span##/h4# #div class="synonyms"# #i#mathurāyām#/i#—at Mathurā; #i#tathā#/i#—also; #i#vajram#/i#—Vajra; #i#śūrasena-patim#/i#—King of the Śūrasenas; #i#tataḥ#/i#—thereafter; #i#prājāpatyām#/i#—Prājāpatya sacrifice; #i#nirūpya#/i#—having performed; #i#iṣṭim#/i#—goal; #i#agnīn#/i#—fire; #i#apibat#/i#—placed in himself; #i#īśvaraḥ#/i#—capable. #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TRANSLATION"#TRANSLATION#/span##/h4# #div class="translation"# Then he posted Vajra, the son of Aniruddha [grandson of Lord Kṛṣṇa], at Mathurā as the King of Śūrasena.

It is really foolishness to engage oneself all the days of one's life in material enjoyment and fruitive activities, because as long as the mind remains absorbed in fruitive work for material enjoyment, there is no chance of getting out from conditioned life, or material bondage. No one should follow the suicidal policy of neglecting one's supreme task of attaining the highest perfection of life, namely going back home, back to Godhead. #/div# #/div#
