Neglecting Rare Reward

 

When innumerable merits are accumulated, a soul unexpectedly gets the life of a human being. Over and above, if a person is able to lead a spiritual life, he is most fortunate.

 

Even in such a life if he does not achieve fulfillment, his being born is useless and only an added weight on the earth. Can he be happier than a mere animal?

 

A human being, who does not know anything more than eating, sleeping, fear and sex, is no better than an animal shorn of tail and horns.

 

How great is this human life! It is the only way to achieve devotion to God and the four-fold liberation. This is the only means of self-realization

 

Shree Sai Samartha Satcharitra, Ch. 14, verse 17-20.
