If you can understand Kṛṣṇa, the result is that you stop the repetition of birth and death, old age and disease. That is very good. Kṛṣṇa says, tyaktvā dehaṁ punar janma naiti. If you understand Kṛṣṇa, then after leaving this body no more transmigration to another material body.


We have no other business to understand Kṛṣṇa, but there is a great benefit if we can understand Kṛṣṇa. Kṛṣṇa says Himself in the Bhagavad-gītā:

janma karma me divyaṁ
yo jānāti tattvataḥ
(BG 4.9)

But we have to understand Kṛṣṇa in truth, not by fiction or imagination or concoction. In truth what is Kṛṣṇa.

janma karma me divyaṁ
yo jānāti tattvataḥ
(BG 4.9)

The result is tyaktvā dehaṁ punar janma naiti mām eti. If you can understand Kṛṣṇa, the result is that you stop the repetition of birth and death, old age and disease. That is very good. Kṛṣṇa says, tyaktvā dehaṁ punar janma naiti.

If you understand Kṛṣṇa, then after leaving this body no more transmigration to another material body. Punar janma . . . janma, birth, takes place of this material body, not of the soul. The soul, na jāyate na mriyate vā: the soul never dies or takes birth. The so-called birth is the birth of this body. Therefore anyone who understands Kṛṣṇa, he does not take anymore this material body, tyaktvā dehaṁ punar janma naiti. Then where does he go? Because soul is eternal, I am eternal, you are eternal. We are passing through different phases of material body. So by understanding Kṛṣṇa, tyaktvā dehaṁ punar janma: no more material birth. Then where does he go? Mām eti: he goes back to home, back to Godhead.
