DIALOGUE


THE Body and the soul of man were engaged in a heated dialogue on sin. The Body, hot and flushed with righteous indignation, argued, I am no more than a clump of clay just a compound of the five elements. I cannot even imagine things that create cravings. How can I be held responsible forcommitting sin?

The Soul countered with the same subtlety. I dont even possess the physical organs to commit a sin! Do I have senses? Cravings are from the senses; they gratify the senses hence the word sensual! I have neither form nor matter; how can I commit sin?
In the uneasy silence that followed this heated argument was heard the awe-inspiring Voice of the supreme Being:

Sin is born of the dualism of the two, the Body and the soul. You are equal partners in the creation of sin. Only when the soul enters the Body, the Body becomes animate. The Body without the Soul is mere matter. The soul without the Body is the supreme Being. The world is nothing but the dualism of the Body and the Soul.
