“Not to be followed by blind faith, but on the basis, basis of comparative ontological study.”

In the Upanishad there is a line [urukradeva purushottamatha??] “In the province of Utkala, and from the place Purushottama, Jagannatha, some flow of higher truth will come, will spring up from there.” And the personalities of higher thinking, they understand that Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati, he appeared there in Purushottama. And what sort of nectar he flowed in Orissa, in Bengal, in India and afterwards in the whole of the world? Uh? Whole of the world? The clue of the highest attainment of fulfillment of our life has been given by him. Not to be followed by blind faith, but on the basis, basis of comparative ontological study. Eliminating all possibility of doubts and suspicions about the highest goal of all the jivas. Not only a few handful of human beings, but the whole creation. Wherever there is life, they are concerned. How comprehensive utilitarianism. Not only a handful of human beings but the whole globe, whole animation world is concerned. Where there is life, there is thirst after happiness, pleasure, ecstacy; their all concern comes from this program.
