AlOchanaamR^itaM

AlochanaamR^itaM intellect If anyone thinks that we are merely intellectual beings, he is not a Hindu. Hinduism leaves the glorification of intellectuality to those who have never seen God. When we first received a European education, we allowed ourselves to be misled by the light of science. Science is a light within a limited room, not the sun which illumines the world.

It is in the heart where God resides. He works through the brain, but the brain is only one of His instruments.
Whatever the brain may plan, the heart knows first and whoever can go beyond the brain to the heart, will hear the voice of the Eternal.

- Sri Aurobindo (On Nationalism, pp.  266-268)
