Human birth is for God realisation

|| योग: कर्मसु कौशलम् ||

Mananeeya Eknathji says  Body-mind complex is for god-realization and not for satisfaction of cravings
But one must remember that life which is a span between birth and death is a combination of time and energy. The Creator has given us an instrument, a dynamo, to create energy. It is this body, possessing senses of understanding and of activity. The body-mind complex is an apparatus to be used for God-realization and not for satisfaction of the cravings. Sustenance, maintenance and preservation of this apparatus are most essential so that every ounce of the energy and every moment of time at our disposal can be used in the best possible way for the human goal of God-realization. But according to the traditional content of the Sannyasa one has to wear the saffron-coloured clothes only, follow a particular code of injunction, follow the spiritual path and have to be initiated by a Guru to whom complete submission and obedience is necessary. We are all conversant with the traditional concept of Sannyasa. But Swamiji has already indicated that this work of manifesting the divinity in man can be done by work or worship or psychic control or philosophy. There are so many paths suited to the nature (Prakriti) and tendency (Pravritti) of the individual.
