Godlike Eyesight

Jïānīvimāna nyāyaḥ (airship of wise)

The man on the ground level distinguishes between different heights, depths, greatness, and smallness of mountains, valleys, buildings, etc., but when he flies an airplane, he does not distinguish that. Then for him, everything is low, insignificantly small, and of even level.

The different duality levels of high and low, great and small, rich and poor, beautiful and ugly, pleasant and unpleasant exist only for those, who are on low level or of a small mind, unnecessarily instigating myriads of quarrels. The more a man is spiritually advanced such differences are less significant. The mentioned airship of wisdom is broad-mindedness. From the viewpoint of God or from the level of Kṛṣṇa consciousness, everything on the material plane is of the same insignificant level, and everything on the spiritual plane is of most significant concern. It needs to be mentioned that this is not a question of location, but the level of consciousness. That is the highest spiritual wisdom, to see as Kṛṣṇa sees. It is called śāstra-cakṣuḥ, the sight of scriptures. Kṛṣṇa presents His way of looking at everything in scriptures such as Bhagavad-gītā, Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, which are called Vedānta, the end of all knowledge.
