Hare Krishna! Aneha koti namaskaram to Sri Velukkudi Swami & devotees.

Srila Narada muni in his metaphor, Aatma is referred as Puranjana and his intelligence is referred as his beautiful wife (to whom Puranjana becomes addictive to). In general, in Bhagavad Gita, lord sri krishna says, the mind controls the senses and makes the Jiva follow sensual pleasures, but in this analogy, Srila Narada muni indicates that its the intelligence to which the Jiva becomes addictive to, for sensual pleasures.

Request Swami to clarify the role of mind and  intelligence in making the Aatma fall for material desires.

Sarvam Sri Krishnaarpanam!
