"The evil is that the soul of every man, when it is greatly pleased or pained by anything, is compelled to believe that the object which caused the emotion is very distinct and very true; but it is not. These objects are mostly the visible ones, are they not?” “Certainly.”
“And when this occurs, is not the soul most completely put in bondage by the body?”
“Because each pleasure or pain nails it as with a nail to the body and rivets it on and makes it corporeal, so that it fancies the things are true which the body says are true."
How would Hindu theologians respond to this quote? Would they agree or disagree?
