Do you know that every day even I read my own books? Do you know why I read my books?" We didn't want to venture any answer. Prabhupada said, "I read my books every day because even I learn something new when I read my books. These are not my books. I do not write these books." It seemed as if something mystical came over him at this point.

 

सत्त्वं रजस्तम इति गुणाः प्रकृतिसम्भवाः ।
निबध्नन्ति महाबाहो देहे देहिनमव्ययम्‌ ॥

भावार्थ : हे अर्जुन! सत्त्वगुण, रजोगुण और तमोगुण -ये प्रकृति से उत्पन्न तीनों गुण अविनाशी जीवात्मा को शरीर में बाँधते हैं॥5॥
