Jagad Guru Chris Butler quotes – Real Value of the Body

The real value of the body lies not in the organization of its components, but rather in the self, in the person who operates and uses that body.

Without the self to operate the body, that body—as complex and organized as it is—is of no more value than a bag of chemicals.

However, neither the Sri Ishopanishad nor any other Vedic literature recommends that we neglect bodily needs. Bhagavad-gita states:

There is no possibility of one’s becoming a yogi, O Arjuna, if one eats too much, or eats too little, sleeps too much or does not sleep enough.

~Bhagavad-gita 6:16
