2205) Whether I know material body is the symptum for sinful actions! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
——————- So, so long we are tinged with sinful activities, we have to accept different varieties of body, either the body of Lord Brahmä or the body of an ant, indragopa, a small microbic insect, yas tv indragopam athavendram aho sva-karma [Bs. 5.54]. From this indragopa, the microscopic insect which is called indragopa insect, from this indragopa insect, to the real Indra, the King of Heaven, everyone is suffering or enjoying—actually it is suffering—the resultant action of his karma. It doesn’t matter what kind of body a living entity has got, but the body itself is the symptom, is the sign that one is sinful. This is the conclusion of the sästra. ———————————————–
