ÅrÄ«la Narottama dÄsa á¹¬hÄkura has sung:
hari hari viphale janama goá¹ Äinu
manuá¹£ya-janama pÄiyÄ, rÄdhÄ-ká¹á¹£á¹a nÄ bhajiyÄ,
jÄniyÄ ÅuniyÄ viá¹£a khÄinu
The body of a human being is extremely valuable because in this body one can understand the instructions of Ká¹á¹£á¹a and attain the ultimate destination of the living entity. The living entity is within the material world to fulfill the mission of going back home, back to Godhead. In the material world, one hankers for happiness, but because one does not know the ultimate destination, one changes bodies one after another. However, if one gets the opportunity to possess a human form of body, in this body he can fulfill the four principles of dharma, artha, kÄma and moká¹£a, and if one is properly regulated he makes further progress, after liberation, to engage in the service of RÄdhÄ and Ká¹á¹£á¹a. This is the success of life: to stop the process of repeated birth and death and go back home, back to Godhead (mÄm eti), to be engaged in the service of RÄdhÄ and Ká¹á¹£á¹a. Therefore, taking a human body is meant for completing oneâs progress in life. Throughout human society, killing of a human being is taken very seriously. Hundreds and thousands of animals are killed in slaughterhouses, and no one cares about them, but the killing of even one human being is taken very seriously. Why? Because the human form of body is extremely important in executing the mission of life.
