No attempt to increase longevity

    Posted on August 2, 2014

By practice of kumbhaka-yoga, the yogis increase the duration of life by many, many years. A Krsna conscious person, however, being always situated in the transcendental loving service of the Lord, automatically becomes the controller of the senses. His senses, being always engaged in the service of Krsna, have no chance of becoming otherwise engaged. So at the end of life,
he is naturally transferred to the transcendental plane of Lord Krsna; consequently he makes no attempt to increase his longevity.
