The process of chanting the holy name of the Lord is so powerful that by this chanting even householders can very easily gain the ultimate result achieved by person in the renounced order. — Srimad Bhagavatam, 07.15.74
We spirit soul, we have been encaged within this body, so our natural aspiration is to get freedom from this encagement as much as the bird is struggling to get freedom from this cage.
