Mr. N. Natesa Iyer, the leader of the Bar in a South Indian town, an orthodox Brahmin, asked: “Are the gods Iswara or Vishnu and their sacred regions Kailasa or Vaikuntha real?

M.: As real as you are in this body.

N. Natesa Iyer氏は、南インドの町の法曹界の指導者であり、正統派の知識人である。彼は尋ねた。「Iswara神やVishnu神、そしてその聖なる宗教であるKailasaやVaikunthaは、本物でしょうか?」


D.: Do they possess a vyavahara satya, i.e., phenomenal existence, like my body? Or are they fictions like the horn of a hare?

M.: They do exist.
