Evening Darsana – Everyone Requires A Guru – May 12, 1977, Hrishikesh
826) Whether I know material body means suffering! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
—— So this verse, nunam pramattah kurute vikarma… [SB 5.5.4]. People are mad after sense gratification in different ways, so Rsabhadeva says, “No, no, no, this is not good. You have already obtained a material body as a result of your past karma, and you are suffering.” Body means suffering. Janma-mrtyu-jara-vyadhi-duhkha-dosanudarsanam [Bg. 13.9]. “So you have already got this body, and you are suffering. You are again trying to get another body?” Na sadhu manye: “This is not good.” Our whole Vedic civilization is punar janma jayaya, to conquer over punar janma. ————————————
