A disciple asked his GURUJI - "Is there a 'Soul' in our body,? Will it not 'perish' like the body.?"
The GURUJI explained..
"Milk" is useful but if left as it is.. it gets spoiled..
In case u add a drop a "Buttermilk".. it becomes "Curd".. and the Milk that turns to Curd, remains for one more day without getting spoiled..
If left as it is.. the Curd gets spoiled..
Yet, if u churn the "Curd" it becomes "Butter" which doesn't get spoiled..
But, even Butter also does not remain fresh for many days.. It becomes rancid or spoiled after a few days..
But if u melt Butter in a proper manner.. It becomes pure "Ghee", which never gets spoiled..
Now, do u see that the "Milk" which gets spoiled contains "Ghee" that never gets spoiled.?
Likewise, inside the "perishable" Body, there is an "imperishable" Soul..
Sankirtan, Seva & Sadhana..
makes the "perishable Body"..
to be one with "imperishable Soul"..
Human Body is the milk..
Sankirtan is the buttermilk..
Seva is the churning..
& then by Sadhana we melt the 'reformed body' to be one with the 'soul'.
