ISKCON Desire Tree - Devotee Network

Connecting Devotees Worldwide - In Service Of Srila Prabhupada

Another example given in Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam concerns the elephant who
enters into a lake and takes a bath very seriously, cleansing his body
thoroughly. Then as soon as he comes onto shore he again takes some
dust from the earth and throws it over his body. Similarly, a person
who is not trained in Kṛṣṇa consciousness cannot become completely
free from the desire for sinful activities. Neither the yoga process
nor philosophical speculations nor fruitive activities can save one
from the seeds of sinful desires. Only by being engaged in devotional
service can this be done.
