"Human Potentialities" (SB 5.5.7)

Bhaktivedanta Manor, London – May 28, 1984 / (528)

In this verse, Lord Rsabhadeva teaches his sons that self-realization is the purpose of human life. Thompson contrasts that with worldviews identified with evolutionary perspectives focused on examining animalistic propensities. While drawing upon the Vedic literary tradition, Thompson proposes that human potentialities well surpass those of a sophisticated anthropoid.
