What made humans fall to the lowest level and developed disbelief in the Unimaginable God?

[Smt. Anita Renkuntla asked: My Salutations to The Divine Lotus Feet of Paramapujya Sri Sri Sri Datta Swamiji πŸ™‡‍β™€οΈπŸ™‡πŸ™πŸ™πŸŒ·πŸ™πŸŒΊπŸ™‡ I Thank You Swamiji for the grace You are showing upon me and the minutest care You are taking at the same time. I want to seek answers for some of the questions below. Do forgive me if they were answered earlier.

It is mentioned in Thrylokya Gita that everybody was an extreme devotee of God possessing miraculous powers before the Kali age. And slowly the devotion to God declined. What made humans to fall to the lowest level and develop disbelief in the Unimaginable God?]

Swami replied:- The main reason for the fall in spiritual knowledge and interest in the divine part of life is the attraction towards materialistic life. People think that materialistic life is the absolute truth and go on earning, earning and earning even by doing serious sins. Due to this attraction, even the fear for hell is lost and not to speak of attraction to spiritual path and God. Everybody thinks that he/she will carry on whatever earned here after death. If you go into the depth of materialism, the reason for this reason is the blind fascination for life partner and children. Even the bonds with parents are not contributing a trace and what I say is 200% truth if you analyze without any dispassion. Every soul is trapped by the triangle of life partner, children and money for their happiness. The three lines in this triangle are the three strongest worldly bonds and this triangle is called ‘Eshanaatrayam’. None can do anything even if the reason is known. The drinker-cum-smoker knows that the wine and cigarettes are responsible for his serious damage of health, but, still doesn’t stop drinking and smoking! He is called addicted. The preaching of spiritual knowledge is like the advice given by various elders, who are the well-wishers of the victim. God is the only medicine described by the spiritual knowledge to divert the addicted person.
