1.       English Translation:     We may observe some order in the forms of objects of creation is this world. The order may make sense to our hypothesis or may not. Does it matter? The cosmic spirit behind all forms and order is the only truth. That is not affected by the forms, or our impressions of the forms or our hypothesis about the forms. If one wants to understand it, he must set his eyes on the spirit and not the forms. - Mankutimma.
