(Perfection Of Life)
Srila Prabhupada explains that there are two things, Philosophy and religion. He says, religion without philosophy is sentiment. And sometimes it is fanaticism. And he says that philosophy without religion is mental speculation so both things are very important. Religion means loving sentiments towards God. That is very important. We have to have those sentiments, that emotions towards the Lord. That is very important. and at the same time, we have to have philosophy also, intelligence, because material emotions are also there. And we don’t have proper intelligence by hearing by from guru, by hearing from Vaisnavas and hearing from scripture, then we will probably remain caught up in material emotions. So we really have to have the guidance of vedic wisdom, vaisnavas and guru to make sure our emotions, our Feelings are bring properly coming, properly expressed, properly directed etc.
