———————- So Krsna therefore comes to canvass that “Why you are working under material energy…”
prakrteh kriyamanani gunaih karmani sarvasah
ahankara-vimudhatma karta aham iti manyate [Bg. 3.27]
Those who are under the material energy, they are pulled by the ear of the person by the material energy. Bhramayan sarva-bhutani yantrarudhani mayaya [Bg. 18.61]. Yantrarudhani. This body is a yantra, is an automobile, mechanical car. Just like I, we are placed on the motorcar and the driver moves us in different places, similarly, according to our karma, we are given a certain type of body, cat’s body, dog’s body, human body, this body, that body — 8,400,000 species. So we are moving. Bhramayan sarva-bhutani yantrarudhani mayaya [Bg. 18.61]. So actually, we are under the control of the material nature. But ahankara-vimudha atma. Those who are fools and rascals, they are thinking “I am independent, I am God, I don’t care for God,” this or that… So many. So this is called mati-cchanna, madness. ————————————-—————————————-
