Intelligence: Material vs. Spiritual Intelligence

                                                                  Q. In Bhagavad-gita (BG) 3.42 it is said "The working senses are superior to dull matter; mind is higher than the senses; intelligence is still higher than the mind; and he [the soul] is even higher than the intelligence." However in Srimad Bhagavatam (SB) 3.26.27 it is said, "From the false ego of goodness, another transformation takes place.

                                                                  Q. It is a common observation that most people are guided by their intelligence. It is stated in Bhagavad-Gita that Soul is higher than intelligence. So, can a person be guided by his/her Soul? If so how do we know that we are being guided by the Soul?

                                                                  Q. What really is intelligence? Is it something part and parcel of the soul? Is one given a different intelligence in different births, or is it something eternal?

                                                                  Material intelligence is one of the energies of Krishna --- a subtle material energy, just as earth, water, air etc are gross material energies.
