Chanting Śrīmad-Bhagavatam 5.5.6-16
Lord Ṛṣabhadeva’s Teachings to His Sons " ... vāsudeve na mucyate deha-yogena tāvat" When the living entity is covered by the mode of ignorance, he does not understand the individual living being and the supreme living being, and his mind is subjugated by fruitive activity. Therefore, until one has love for Lord Vāsudeva, who is none other than Myself, he is certainly not delivered from having to accept a material body again and again.
