Srila Prabhupada's Quote Of The Day

We have to maintain our body. This is called bibhrat. That is necessary. We have got this body in this material world. This is not spiritual world. In the spiritual world there is no necessity of maintaining the body. The body is spiritual. As we have got here in this material world, to maintain this body I require to eat, I require to sleep, I require to satisfy my sense, and I require to defend - the four necessities... Ahara-nidra-bhaya-maithunam ca. And spiritual body means these four kinds of bodily demands, nil, no more. That is spiritual life.

Lecture on Srimad-Bhagavatam 6.1.22, Chicago, 6 July, 1975

Niranjana Swami's Quote Of The Day

We each must learn how to work. To work properly, we have to change our consciousness. Work is not meant simply to maintain the material body but as an offering to Krishna. Through work, we learn to place Krishna in the center of our lives. If we want to place Krishna in the center of our lives, then we must hear and chant regularly. If we don’t, we will forget why we are working. We will think that we are working only to maintain the body and its extension—family, society, and nation. We will not remember that the goal of all work is to give pleasure to Krishna and by working in this consciousness, we increase our attachment to Krishna.
(BG 13.26 Nikolaev, June 1996)
