THE SPIRITUAL AND MATERIAL WORLDS

8.4: The physical Nature is known to be endlessly mutable. The universe is the cosmic Form of the Supreme Lord, and I am that Lord represented as the Supersoul, dwelling in the heart of every embodied being.
5: Anyone who quits his body, at the end of life, remembering Me, attains immediately to My nature; and there is no doubt of this.
6: In whatever condition one quits his present body, in his next life he will attain to that state of being without fail.
7: Therefore, Arjuna, you should always think of Me, and at the same time you should continue your prescribed duty and fight. With your mind and activities always fixed on Me, and everything engaged in Me, you will attain to Me without any doubt.
PURPORTTHIS INSTRUCTION to Arjuna is very important for all men engaged in material activities: The Lord does not say that one should give up his prescribed duties or engagements. One can continue them, and at the same time think of Krishna by chanting Hare Krishna. This will free one from material contamination, and will engage the mind and intelligence in Krishna. By chanting Krishna's Names, one will be transferred to the Supreme Planet, Krishnaloka, without a doubt.
