" why not adopt austerity that provides permanent happiness?":
You have to purify your existence and your body. As many times as you accept a material body, you'll have to change it. But as soon as you get a spiritual body, there's no change. You already have a spiritual body. Now, because of our material contamination, we are developing the material body.
But if we get in touch with spiritual life, then we will develop a spiritual body. It is the same example I have given several times: if you put an iron bar in the fire, it becomes like fire. Similarly, if you are always busy in spiritual activities, your body will act spiritually, even if it is material. It's the same example: when an iron bar is red-Hot, everything it touches will burn it. Take the quality of the fire. In the same way, if you always keep yourself conscious of Krishna, you'll be espiritualizarás. You'll always act spiritually. There will be no more material requirements.
