The senses are subtle and powerful. The mind is higher than the senses and the intellect is higher than the mind, and what is higher than the intellect is the Self. Realizing thus the Self by the control of the senses and the purification of the intellect, annihilate this formidable foe, Desire.
-Srimad Bhagavad Gita
Atman is the ruler of the body and is internal; the body is the ruled and is external.Yet people see these two as one ! What else can be called ignorance but this? Atman is all consciousness and holy; the body is all flesh and impure. Yet people see these two as one! What else can be called ignorance but this?
Scientists have discovered that matter is nothing but a manifestation of cosmic energy. So there exists a single cosmic energy or force which is infinite in capacity and takes on the form of matter under certain conditions. Our holy scriptures( Vedas) also make the same assertion.
-Sri Chandrasekhara Bharati Mahaswamiji (Jagadguru)
