The Lord has endowed you with body, and so every limb and every sense is worthy of reverent attention. Each must be used for His Glory. The ear must exult when it gets a chance to hear the wonderful tales of God. The tongue must relish when it can praise Him. Or else, your tongue is as ineffective as frogs which croak day and night, sitting on the marshy bank. The human body has been given to you for a grand purpose - realising the Lord within. If you have a fully equipped car in good running condition, would you keep it in the garage? The car is primarily for going on a journey - get into it and go. Only then is it worthwhile to own it. So too with the body. Proceed, go forward to the goal. Learn how to use the faculties of the body, the senses, the intellect, and the mind for achieving the goal and march on. (Divine Discourse, Feb 18, 1966)
