Translation and purport composed by disciples of Śrīla Prabhupāda


The Supreme Lord said: My dear son of Śakuni, you appear tired. Why have you come such a great distance? Please rest for a minute. After all, it is one's body that fulfills all one's desires.


In Kṛṣṇa, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Śrīla Prabhupāda comments, "Before the demon could argue that he had no time to take rest, the Lord began to inform him about the importance of the body, and the demon was convinced. Any man, especially a demon, takes his body to be very important."
