Theory of Change

A human being is a part of the whole called by us 'the universe,' a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest--a kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and affection of a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of understanding and compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty - Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein touches on certain aspects of achintya bheda abheda tattva; the fact that this material world and mind is a prison house, and that we are delusioned (in illusion) by it.

The only way to fulfill Enistein's task is by taking shelter of the Supreme Object of attraction Sri Krishna. As Krishna Himself says BG 7.14

daivī hy eṣā guṇa-mayī
mama māyā duratyayā
mām eva ye prapadyante
māyām etāḿ taranti te

This divine energy of Mine, consisting of the three modes of material nature, is difficult to overcome. But those who have surrendered unto Me can easily cross beyond it.

Hare Krishna
