The Conditioned Soul is Like Fire in Wood

The Srimad Bhagavatam uses the analogy of fire in wood as the unmanifested soul. When conditions are right, the fire blazes. Similarly, the pure soul is awakened when access to pure spiritual life is available. The vibration of the Hare Krishna mantra – Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare, Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare – awakens the soul to its original, happy condition, and enables it to become fully manifest.
