The body is of no value, once the soul has left it. The real value if the soul, so in this life… if only the whole life we decorate the body, make a nice arrangement for the body, and we don’t take care of the soul, where will the soul go, what is the aatma’s destination, then what is the value of life? That is what we call non-Aryan, where they don’t understand the difference between the body and the whole world, even our leaders they are all going on this bodily concept of life, which is the most disheartening thing. They are not seeing that the real value of life is not only to get the economic development for the body, it is not a religious matter, it is a science.
