Nectar Drops from Srila Prabhupada
"Just like the dead body's decorated, the sons of that dead body may see him, that 'Oh, my father is smiling'. (laughter) But he does not know where his father has already gone. You see? So this material civilization is just like decorating the dead body. This body is dead. That is a fact. So long the soul is there, it is working, it's moving. Just like your coat. It is dead. But so long it is on your body, it appears the coat is moving. The coat is moving. But if somebody is very much astonished, 'Oh, how nice the coat is moving!" (laughter) He does not know the coat cannot move. The coat is dead. But because the man is there who is putting on the coat, therefore the coat is moving, the pant is moving, the shoe is moving, the hat is moving. Similarly, this body is dead. It is numbered: this dead body will remain for such and such time. That is called duration of life. But people are interested with this dead body."
