Title: Sat-Chid-Ananda

User: Swami Gaurangapada Date: 2007-03-12 16:58:39



Dear Swami Gaurangapada,

I was wondering of what substance the spiritual world is made of?


If there is no matter at all there then it would be a void and unlike light waves, sound waves do not travel through a vacuum. They need matter to travel. That is why sound can travel through a wall.


So i was wondering what element is the spiritual world made of? Like there is earth water fire etc in the material world, there must be some substance in the spiritual world, otherwise it would be a void and if that were so then no chanting could happen there?


So is it said anywhere of what substance or element it is made from, the spiritual world?


Thankyou, Chandrika Gauranga dasi



Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! The spiritual world is made up of:


(1) Sat - Eternity

(2) Chit - Knowledge

(3) Ananda - Bliss


These are constituents of the spiritual world.



Nityananda Gauranga Hare Krishna These are very intangible things, eternity, knowledge and bliss. I was thinking how can a place be made of such things? They sound more like experiences than elements. But I suppose that an element doesnt have to be something tangible at all. And an experience can be an element of something.



Answer by Swami Gaurangapada:


Nityananda! Gauranga! Hare Krishna! They are intangible for the material senses but when one receives one's spiritual senses in the spiritual world, one understands that they are the spiritual constituents of the spiritual world.
