Sense Perception - an essential subject

From Vanipedia
Jump to: navigation, search

We experience the world around us via our senses and so, this makes our senses a vital part of us. We experience pain and pleasure through our 5 senses of taste, touch, hearing, sight and smell and accordingly react to situations. In the book 'Message of Godhead', it is very rightly stated that the more we become spiritually developed, the less we are affected by the happiness or distress that arise out of sense perception in contact with material association. The false ego created by material contact is then gradually vanquished, and this dismantling of false egoism causes liberation from all material designations and renewed awareness of our relationship with the Absolute Truth.
