IX: 33

Chapter 9, Verse 33

"Saintly kings and holy sages, too,
Seek this goal with devotion.
Therefore, in this sad and forlorn world,
Give all your love to me."

Paramahansa Yogananda:

If even sinful men and women
May retrace their footsteps
To the hallowed home,
How unhampered, then,
Will the journey be
For the spiritually inclined?

Swami Shivananda:

The body is impermanent.  It will perish soon.  It brings pain of various sorts.  Give up the efforts for securing happiness for this body.  If you do not aim at Self-realization even after attaining a human birth, you live in vain.  Do not waste your life, only to be caught again and again in the wheel of birth and death.
