According to his association with the material modes of nature—goodness, passion, and ignorance—a living entity gets a particular type of body. The example of one who associates with the mode of goodness is a qualified brähmaëa. Such a brähmaëa knows past, present, and future because he consults the Vedic literature and sees through the eyes of scripture (çästra-cakñuù). He can understand what his past life was, why he is in the present body, and how he can obtain liberation from the clutches of mäyä and not accept another material body.

While we are in this material world, we have to work, but we work for Kåñëa. That is not really work, or karma: it is dharma, practical religion. Unless one works for Kåñëa, all his labor is adharma, irreligious sense gratification. On the Basis of a Man's Nature The real aim of life is to satisfy Kåñëa, and varëäçrama-dharma is the institution of that ideal in human society. The varëäçrama system divides society into four spiritual orders (äçramas) and four social classes (varëas). The spiritual orders are the brahmacärés (celibate students), the gåhasthas (householders living under 37 spiritual regulation), the vänaprasthas (retirees), and the sannyäsés (renunciants).

We cannot adjust these situations. " We have to accept it. Minute Independence Due to repeated birth and death in so many material bodies, we have all forgotten that we are part and parcel of God, that we have an intimate relationship with Him, and that somehow or other we have fallen into this 43 material world. It is very difficult to exactly pinpoint the origin of this forgetfulness. But even though we have forgotten Him since time immemorial, Kåñëa is so merciful that to remind us of our spiritual identity and our oneness with Him as His parts, He comes personally and teaches us what we have forgotten.
