Brought by the Lord

I ask Satya-nārāyan Dāsjī about the theory that the spiritual body is waiting for us in the spiritual sky. He confirms it, like paintings on someone's wall that come alive somehow. He says it should be in Prīti Sandarbha. He shows me the Bhāgavata-verse 1.6.28, which starts with the word prayujyamāna, which means, according to Śrīdhara Swāmī and Jīva Gosvāmī, that it is bhagavata nīyamāna, brought by the Lord. And then, from where is it brought? From the spiritual sky, of course. So it is a fact. Jīva Gosvāmī says it happens at once, just as sitting and eating take place at the same time.

  1. So who are we? If material body is given to us by material nature and spiritual body is given by Krishna so what actually is the soul? Bodyless spark? Does it have senses?

  2. In the conditioned state the soul is sat, a bodiless spark - in the perfected state it is a personal form related to the Lord in service.
    Only, this form is not mundane, of flesh and blood, but fully spiritual.
