The soul derives immediate pleasure in righteous deeds (satkarma). After decease of the physical body, in jivas securance of emancipation (sadgati), the agency is again these deeds. Thus, both in this world (loka) and the other (parloka), inner happiness depends on acts of righteousness. The soul’s interest, therefore, consists in acquisition of spiritual merit (punya-prayojana). Interests of the gross body lie in a contrary direction; the external senses and the mind long for worldly enjoyments to the maximum possible extent. By adopting this course of action, man spends his whole life trying to satisfy the insatiable appetites of the mortal body and, in the process, goes on sinning and accumulating demerits. The senses do get entertained this way, but the soul has to suffer both here and in the hereafter. When interests of the soul are catered to, the body is put to discomfort. It has to endure the rigours of austerity , sacrifice, continence, sense-control altruistic service, charitableness etc. Thus, we find that interests of the body and that of the soul, are mutually exclusive; in the pleasure of one, lies the pain of the other.
