When the Transcendental Sound
Makes His Appearance
by Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura Prabhupāda
We cannot rely on the mind and our mental speculation. All of us are busy making our mind control everything relating to ourselves. This does not admit the conception of the Absolute. Mental conceptions are all changeable. The property must not be confounded with the proprietor. Our external body is our property. It is perishable and there is no certainty of its retention. In Egypt the body was preserved. The process was thought necessary for the re-awaking of the soul. The materialists see the externality of things. They observe that the combination of material particles produces animation, so the external is scrutinised by the materialistic sciences.
