Sample text

Therefore, this tree of the material manifestation cannot be accepted as the Ultimate Truth, because it is influenced by time. But K‚‰†a's body is eternal: He existed before the material manifestation, He is existing while the material manifestation is continuing, and when it will be dissolved, He will continue to exist.

Over and over again Vasudeva glanced at his child, and he considered how to celebrate this auspicious moment, ÐGenerally, when a male child is born," he thought, Ðpeople observe the occasion with jubilant celebrations, and in my home, although I am imprisoned, the Supreme Personality of Godhead has taken birth.

VijŠƒnam is also experienced knowledge. Transcendental knowledge has to be accepted by the descending process of disciplic succession, as Brahmƒ presents the knowledge of K‚‰†a in the Brahma-sa„hitƒ.
