yah pasyati tathatmanam
akartaram sa pasyati

One who can see that all activities are performed by the body, which is created of material nature, and sees that the self does nothing, actually sees.
Srila Prabhupada states in his purport; Practically speaking, the body is a machine, designed by the Supreme Lord, to fulfill desires. Because of desires, one is put into difficult circumstances to suffer or to enjoy.
