The Bhagavat 3: Spiritual Ideas

Bhaktivinode Thakur said, “Material examples are absolutely necessary for the explanation of spiritual ideas.” “Nature as it is before our eyes must explain the spirit, or else the truth will ever remain concealed.” “All spiritual ideas are similarly pictures from the material world, because matter is the dictionary of the spirit.” There is an “unfailing connection between truth and shadow.”

He calls us to live as servants of God-dess and look to the good of all with disinterested activity as we make “continual progress in spiritual holiness and harmony.”
