Guest (2): What is the importance of health in life, and how does Guruji advise people to maintain health, and how does it connect to your mission?
Prabhupada: Where is health? First of all you have to understand that however healthy you may be, you must die. What problem you have solved? Janma-mrtyu-jara-vyadhi-duhkha-dosanudarsanam [Bg. 13.9], Krsna says. It is not my manufacture. However you may try to remain very healthy, nature’s law is that you must die. How you can help yourself? After all, you have to meet death. Janma-mrtyu-jara-vyadhi. So long you have got this material body, there is no question of health. You must suffer. You may be very great scientist, but nature’s law must act.
