Perfection of Life - No More birth, No More death, No More desease, No More Old Age

It is said that manusyanam sahasresu kascid yatati siddhaye [Bg. 7.3].

There are millions and millions, human beings. Out of them, one is very much anxious how to get perfection of life. Because everyone is carried by the animal propensities. What are the animal propensities? Eating, sleeping, sex life and defense. Ahara-nidra-bhaya-maithunam ca, samanyam etat pasubhir naranam. These are the common formulas both to the animals and the human being. What is that? Eating, sleeping, mating, sex life and defending. Defense. Everyone is doing that according to his own capacity. Cats and dogs, they also eat, they also sleep, they also have sex life, and they also try to defend when there is danger, when there is enemy. So these things are common formulas both for the animal and human being. But what is the especial prerogative for the human being? That is siddhi, how to make life perfect. Therefore here it is said, manusyanam sahasresu kascid yatati siddhaye [Bg. 7.3]. Siddhaye means “for perfection.”

What is the perfection of life? Perfection of life is no
more birth, no more death, no more disease, no more old age. That is perfection

That the people do not know, that there is possibility of attaining stage when there is no more birth, no more death, no more old age. There are so many universities, so many educational institution all over the world, but nowhere there is department of understanding this science, how to stop birth, death, old age and disease. In the chemical laboratory, they are trying to manufacture chemicals for stopping birth, contraceptive. But there is no medicine that after taking this medicine or these chemicals, there will be no more death or no more birth, no more old age and more disease. You can manufacture chemical or combination of medicine as counteracting the disease.
