Whoever struggles to satisfy the senses
is bound to be morally and spiritually
lethargic and do many evil deeds.

I find no meaning in men doing again and again those
very kind of Karmas which have brought into existence
this body which, besides being short-lived and ephimeral,
is the cause of all sufferings now. The repetition of these
Karmas is bound to cause new embodiments and more sufferings.

So long as man does not make an earnest enquiry about the Spirit within,
so long will he, out of ignorance, be debarring the dawn of spiritual
consciousness in him. So long will his mind be inclined only towards
such actions (and not for spiritual enquiry). And for such body-centered
men given to selfish actions, embodiments are caused again and again.
