Smart Quote of the Day, April 4, 2016

Easy

"We cannot imagine how things work in the spiritual world where everything is spiritual. It is not that Krishna does not eat or that we imagine that He eats; He actually eats, but His eating is different from ours.."

Today's Smart Quote is from the Introduction to Teachings of Lord Caitanya:

The Brahma-samhita also confirms that the spiritual body of the Supreme Lord is so powerful that any part of that body can perform the functions of any other part. We can only touch with our hands or skin, but Krishna can touch just by glancing. We can only see with our eyes, we cannot touch or smell with them. Krishna, however, can smell and also eat with His eyes. When foodstuffs are offered to Krishna we don't see Him eating, but He eats simply by glancing at the food.

We cannot imagine how things work in the spiritual world where everything is spiritual. It is not that Krishna does not eat or that we imagine that He eats; He actually eats, but His eating is different from ours. Our eating process will be similar to His when we are completely on the spiritual platform. On that platform every part of the body can act on behalf of any other part.
