CONSCIOUSNESS IS ORIGINALLY pure, like water. But if we mix water with a certain color, it changes. Similarly, consciousness is pure, for the spirit soul is pure. But consciousness is changed according to the association of the material qualities. Real consciousness is Krishna consciousness. When, therefore, one is situated in Krishna consciousness, that is his pure life. Otherwise, if his consciousness is adulterated by some type of mentality, in the next life he gets a corresponding body.
