Words of Wisdom by Swami Satchidananda
- Your Body is a Vehicle
“Your body is your vehicle. It’s given to you to enjoy life.
Remember, whatever you want to do, you need the body.
You want to hear something? You need the body. You want
to taste something? You need the body. You want to go
somewhere? You need the body. The scriptures say,
‘Whatever you want to do, the body comes first.’ So, keep
the body in good shape and use it well. On the other hand,
attachment to your body interferes with your using it.
So, in the name of spiritual practice, Yoga practice, we
are not asking you to get attached to the body. Take good
care of your tool, your instrument. Keep it clean, keep it
healthy, keep it strong and fit to function well, but don’t
get attached to it.
“God bless you. Om Shanthi, Shanthi, Shanthi.”
