Spiritual Identity - an essential subject
A living being has a spiritual identity, and therefore his occupational duty is also spiritual. Real dharma is that which is advised in Bhagavad-gītā: one must give up one's material occupational duties, just as one must give up his material body. Anyone who is unconscious, who is ignorant of his spiritual identity, identifying himself with this body and misusing this opportunity of human form of life simply for animal sense gratification, is wasting his human form of life.
