"The necessity of this body are four: we must eat something; we must have rest, sleep for some time; we must defend ourself from the attack of enemy; and we must have the facility for sex life also. These things are necessary for keeping up this body. But one who is going to liberate himself from this material entanglement, he cannot use this excessively. There must be regulate."
"In the Bhagavad-gītā it is said that there is another, spiritual sky, where there is no need of sunshine, na yatra bhāsayate sūryo. Sūrya means sun, and bhāsayate means distributing the sunshine. So there is no need of sunshine. Na yatra bhāsayate sūryo na śaśāṅko. Śaśāṅka means moon. Neither there is need of moonlight. Na śaśāṅko na pāvakaḥ. Neither there is need of electricity. That means the kingdom of light. Here, this material world is kingdom of darkness. That you know, everyone. It is actually darkness. As soon as there is sun on the other side of this earth, it is darkness. That means by nature it is dark. Simply by sunshine, moonshine and electricity we are keeping it light. Actually, it is darkness. And darkness means ignorance also."
