115-Kramada nabhavikruti vaayvaadi roopagalante....

1.     English Translation:       What we think is order in this creation are like clouds in the sky - limited impressions on the infinite sky. They say a single celled bacteria gave rise to fish, land animals and finally humans in that order. This hypothesis may be very well made and explain in every detail how nature works. However, it is not equal to the cosmic spirit that can breathe life into the inanimate objects. – Mankutimma
