Teachings of Lord Kapila English
This book talks about the real Sāṅkhya philosophy, described by Lord Kapila, an incarnation of God, in the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam. Sāṅkhya means the analytical description of the body and the soul. Lord Kṛṣṇa made an analytical description of the soul just to bring Arjuna to the point of buddhi-yoga, or bhakti-yoga.
Therefore, Lord Kṛṣṇa’s Sāṅkhya and Lord Kapila’s Sāṅkhya, as described in the Bhāgavatam, are one and the same. They are all bhakti-yoga. Lord Kṛṣṇa said, therefore, that only the less intelligent class of men make a distinction between sāṅkhya-yoga and bhakti-yoga.

Teachings of Lord Kapila – The son of Devahūti
The distinction between the incarnation Kapila and ordinary atheistic Kapila
Later, another Kapiladeva appeared who expounded atheistic Sāṅkhya philosophy, which dealt with the twenty-four elements but gave no information about God. The original Kapila is called the Devahūti-putra Kapila, and the other is called the atheist Kapila.
The conclusion is that we should not endeavor for so-called happiness or distress. We should try to attain that position whereby we can understand Kṛṣṇa and get shelter at His lotus feet. This should be the real human endeavor.
Real knowledge leads to surrender
As long as we do not understand Kṛṣṇa, Vāsudeva, we are still fools. We may advertise ourselves as very great jñānīs, learned personalities. But we are actually fools, which is the śāstric conclusion. If we are actually jñānīs, we should surrender unto Kṛṣṇa.
Arrangements of Kṛṣṇa
This universe is existing due to the Garbhodakaśāyī Viṣṇu. We should not think that all these planets are floating in space without any arrangement. There is definitely an arrangement.
