Material Senses in the Service of Transcendence

ASK BVKS | August 13, 2012 |

English;

Question:

The devotees, however, do not stop the material senses from acting, but they engage their transcendental senses in the service of the Transcendence, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. (SB 3.7.13)

Could you comment on this statement and explain how it is to be understood? Srila Prabhupada mentions material senses and then speaks about transcendental senses. Why does he not continue to say that devotees engage their material senses in the service of the Transcendence?
