The body is a type of machine

Yantra rudani mayaya. That actually the body is a type of machine; we are situated in the heart. We are the soul, we are the spirit, we are the living force. So we spend our whole life. We may talk so many spiritual things. You find that there are those spiritual groups, so many people speculating about this and that but actually ultimately what they do with their time in life? They spend all their time in simply maintaining their body. Then what is the difference between them and any ordinary person? So the body is meant for a higher purpose. We should work and maintain the body but the goal should be to serve the supreme person, to become devotees.
