What’s really needed is to recognize the need for spiritual as well as material happiness. A society that has great material prosperity but lacks spiritual purpose is really a poor society.

" In the same way that we do not befriend or reject somebody just on the basis of the type of clothing he is wearing, we should not feel prejudice nor bigotry towards others just because of the type of body that they are wearing. We should know that we aren't our bodies and thus not relate with others according to their temporary bodies." Author: Jagad Guru, Source: http://www.brandonraynor.com/jagad_guru_chris_butler

Seeking satisfaction: If you identify your body as yourself, you will try to satisfy yourself by trying to satisfy your body. You'll think, "I am the body and I want to be happy, I want to be satisfied." Thus, you'll try to satisfy the belly, the tongue, the genitals, the ears, the eyes, the nose, and so on, believing that this will bring you the inner satisfaction and happiness you crave. But sense gratification does not satisfy.

If the passing away of the body meant the end of your existence, then you, the self who existed along with the "childhood" body, should have ceased existing when that "childhood" body ceased to exist; and you, the self who existed along with the "adolescent" body, should have ceased existing when your "adolescent" body ceased to exist. The fact that you continued to exist, even though your body (bodies) did not, proves that your existence does not depend upon the continuing existence of a body.
