“Even big, so-called philosophers are not able to see beyond a very limited sphere in the modern world. They are only able to see the matter, and only aspects of matter ; not at all able to see the spirit or spiritual world , the anti-material world. And this is their limitation. So they want to play and manipulate with matter. So they invent nuclear weapon , invent different things. What is the practical value if it doesn’t meet people closer to spiritual emancipation, to spiritual realisation? Therefore, in spite of having so many new inventions people are not happy.”
