Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"This human form of body, it is very rarely obtained. It is not to be misused. That is the first knowledge. But people are not educated in that way. They are encouraged that, go on sense enjoyment: 'Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy'. Some rascal comes, so he also says, 'All right, go on, enjoy. Simply meditate for fifteen minutes'. But actually, this body is not meant for aggravating sense enjoyment. We require sense enjoyment because that is a demand of the body. If we want to keep body in healthy condition, then the demands of the body—eating, sleeping, mating, and defending—must be provided. But it should not be aggravated. Therefore in the human form of life, tapasya. Tapasya means austerity, penance, vows. These are the teachings of all scriptures."
