It is very easy to analyze your whole body, and you'll find that that there is no life in these material ingredients, that life is different from this bodily combination. That is explained in the Bhagavad-gītā: apareyam itas tv viddhi me prakṛtiṁ parā (BG 7.5). These material ingredients, they are inferior, aparā. There is a superior, superior thing, itas tv viddhi me prakṛtiṁ parā. What is that? Jīva-bhūtā, that is living entity.

Prabhupāda: Yes, concentration means if you study your body. Eh? So "What I am?" This subject matter you study, analyze your body. It is very easy, what is this body. First of all your breathing. Study what is his breathing. You'll say..., you'll understand it is nothing but air. Do you think that breathing is life? Because this breathing, it is air, so when the breathing is stopped you can replace it by some mechanical arrangement. It is coming through the nose. But does it mean you can bring life? Hmm? So you study your breathing, you study your blood, you study your bone, you study your everything, whatever you have got, this combination—you'll find no life there. Then you understand that life is different from this material combination. This is concentration. You can do. It is very easy to analyze your whole body, and you'll find that that there is no life in these material ingredients, that life is different from this bodily combination. That is explained in the Bhagavad-gītā: apareyam itas tv viddhi me prakṛtiṁ parā (BG 7.5). These material ingredients, they are inferior, aparā. There is a superior, superior thing, itas tv viddhi me prakṛtiṁ parā. What is that? Jīva-bhūtā, that is living entity. So you can study your own thing, if you take Kṛṣṇa's instruction. Now Kṛṣṇa says like this, what is your objection? It is Hindu conception or Muslim conception? It is for everyone.
