Srimad-Bhagavatam: Canto 10 - Chapter 1 - Verse 29


श्रीभगवानुवाचशाकुनेय भवान् व्यक्तं श्रान्त: किं दूरमागत: ।क्षणं विश्रम्यतां पुंस आत्मायं सर्वकामधुक् ॥ २९ ॥


śrī-bhagavān uvācaśākuneya bhavān vyaktaṁśrāntaḥ kiṁ dūram āgataḥkṣaṇaṁ viśramyatāṁ puṁsaātmāyaṁ sarva-kāma-dhuk


The Supreme Lord said: My dear son of Śakuni, you appear tired. Why have you come such a great distance? Please rest for a minute. After all, it is one’s body that fulfills all one’s desires.


In Kṛṣṇa, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Śrīla Prabhupāda comments: “Before the demon could argue that he had no time to take rest, the Lord began to inform him about the importance of the body, and the demon was convinced. Any man, especially a demon, takes his body to be very important.”
