    “So we are unhappy? In the Western countries there is no scarcity of wealth, no scarcity of food, no scarcity of cars, and no scarcity of sex. Everything is available in full abundance. Then why is there still a section of people who are frustrated and confused? Why? Because there is no balance. We are taking care of the necessities of the body, but we have no information of the soul and its neccessities. The soul is the real substance, and the body is only a covering. Therefore neglect of the soul is a form of pollution of duty…

     

    “Bodily comfort, however, is not enough. Suppose a man is very comfortably situated. Does it mean he will not die? Of course not. We speak of a struggle for existence and survival of the fittest, but bodily comforts alone cannot enable anyone to exist or survive permanently. Therefore, taking care of the body only is called a pollution of one’s duty.

     

    “One must know the necessities of the body and also the necessities of the soul. The real necessity of life is to supply the comforts of the soul, and the soul cannot be comforted by material adjustments. Because the soul is a different identity, the soul must be given spiritual food, and that spritual food is Krishna consciousness.
