“Tam yatha yatha upasate tad eva bhavanti”“Whatever one attends to / worships, that one becomes….”Shata-Patha-Brahman (10.5.2.20)
The human body is a Sacred Temple not a ‘prison.’
The entire expression of life, our birth, growth, laughter, tears, love, and death, are all potential sacred rituals.
Life can be lived with sole intention or it can be lived in robotic mindlessness. The human incarnation is a rare event; a precious splash of karmic potential.
Our lives should be a sacred ritual honoring the divine; honoring this rare chance to have a human body.
“O Arjuna, the Supreme Lord is seated within the hearts of all living entities as Paramatma, who is the controller of everyone’s destiny. The Supersoul awards the results of their activities to the living entities, according to the nature of their Karma.
As an object placed on a chariot moves about, here and there, all the living entities wander about within the material world under the control of the Supreme Lord. According to one’s previous Karma, by the inspiration of the Supreme Lord, one becomes engaged in activities that are natural to him.” – Bhagavad Gita, 18.61 (translation by Srila Bhaktivinoda Thakura)
