Jnana Saraswati – Parabrahma Sutras


57. Science agrees that the soul is a product of food

मौननिषेधविज्ञानचार्वाकौ मतावत्र तर्कात्।५७।
maunaniṣedhavijñānacārvākau matāvatra tarkāt|57|

Science, keeping silent about God, and Charvaka the atheist, objecting to the existence of God, are correct in the point that the soul is a modification of food.


Science and atheism establish that the soul is only a modification of food. In this point, both are acceptable. Regarding the existence of God, science is silent and atheism opposes the existence of God. In this point both are refuted and rejected by us. This rejection does not mean that we shall totally reject anybody. We reject only a point and not all the points without analysis. Without analysis, you should not reject any point of anybody.
