SB-3.25.04—-“Approach a Proper Guru”——-Bombay, Novm, 1974
651) Whether I know the source of “jada and cetana” is Krishna! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
——————————————- Everything means… There are two things: jada and cetana, living entities and nonliving entiti…, jada. Dull entities. Matter is dull. So everything means including both. Matter is also coming from Krsna, and these cetana, or living entities, they are also coming from… And the whole world is combination of this matter and cetana — your body, my body. Apareyam itas tu viddhi me prakrtim param, jiva-bhutam maha-baho yayedam dharyate jagat [Bg. 7.5]. This material energy is inferior, and the spiritual energy is superior. And superior why? Because the superior energy, the living entity, jiva-bhuta, they are controlling. Not controlling. They are trying to utilize. Just like we advanced living entities, human beings, we have created the modern civilization by utilizing the matter, utilizing the matter. That is our superiority. ————————————
