It has been told by Sri Madhvacharya (13th Century), one of the prominent philosophical leaders of India, that ?Wondrous multitude is this world, extensively vivid is this world and by virtue of these, the creator is par-excellent, infinite and powerful?. This praise denotes the unimaginable qualities of God i.e. Creation, Sustenance, Operation, Destruction, Typified living etc. Hindu Vedanta (Essence of eternal knowledge) propounds that this magnificent world runs on effect & cause phenomenon. Let us discuss as to what Sri Madhvacharya explained about this phenomenon in the coming paragraphs. This world is divided into two categories i.e."Passive? and ?Conscious? (in Sanskrit they are called as Jada and Chetana). In these categories, we can confirm that Passive object is devoid of knowledge (wisdom or prudence) and Conscious object is receptive to knowledge and can advance with progressive wisdom/prudence. We can further confirm to ourselves that ?Passive object? cannot possess the capacity to obtain knowledge and Conscious object is exactly opposite to this (i.e. fully receptive and can gain knowledge).

[...] A set of human-beings have called this ?Consciousness? as God. They have proposed that as ?Consciousness? does not have a conspicuous physical form but can be felt through constant observation and self-experience, God is also does not have a visible physical form and can be seen through constant meditation and self-realization. In literal aspect, such people are being called as ?Theists?. Those, who have an exactly opposite thought process, are called as ?Atheists?. Theism and Atheism have not born in this contemporary timeframe, but are existing from the first day of creation. [...]

[...] Peace is not a physical activity. But, without this, human kind cannot survive. It is our daily experience that the peace cannot always be achieved through physical means. At times, we might be living in a lavish, fully furnished house in the middle of a high-end locality with an army of attendants at beck & call. But, we still remain restless and with a feel of losing something. On contrary, we might be living in a hamlet, in a hut, devoid of all physical comforts like bed, TV, mobile, computer etc. [...]
