The person is completely materially absorbed, habits, living style, thoughts, everything is completely absorbed in the material conception of life, then its not possible to come to the realization of the supreme spiritual absolute truth. Instead one will always be considering oneself on the bodily platform, and this is what is exactly happening. That in spite of this different yoga processes brought to the West, where some direct purification by like chanting Hare Krishna was not employed, and rather the people are just engaging in different exercises and other type of meditation, you see the people don’t get off the bodily platform.
