A Shisya asks a Q to his Guru, "why is that the body has to suffer for the self-realization of the Soul "???
Guru :: A diamond has to undergo the pain of polishing for it to get luster
A cloth has to bear the pain of cut here and there for it has to become a nice suit
A vessel has to bear the heat for the water to boil
Same way the body has to bear the pain for the self realization of the Atman !!!!
