Giriraj Swami spoke on the last day of Kartika.

“When you are mature in spiritual realization, your soul, instead of being encapsulated in this machine, or body, emerges as a full-fledged spiritual body that has all the faculties of the physical body. In fact, whatever benefits we get from the physical body is due to the soul. The spiritual body has every advantage of the physical body minus the disadvantages. There is no disease, no old age, no death. That is the beautiful life that awaits us when we become perfect in Krishna consciousness. And that perfection can be achieved primarily through the chanting of the holy names, Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare/ Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare.”
