"The living entity enters through the semina of the father in the womb of the mother, the same process. Unless the living entity enters, the body does not form. It is matter only. When the living entity enters, then the formation takes place according to his mind. What do they know about it? Hmm? Yaṁ yaṁ vāpi smaran bhāvaṁ tyajaty ante kalevaram (BG 8.6). The matter simply is set up according to the desire. Just like we have constructed this big house according to my desire. The matter has not taken shape like this big house automatically. I am the proprietor. I desire, 'Let the rooms be like this'. Similarly, the material elements, the semina of the father and the ova of the mother mix, it creates a suitable, what is called, cement, and now according to the desire of the living being he'll settle. Not that the cement automatically becomes a room or pipe or this or that."
