Who doesn’t like to travel in 21st century? You’ll be pleased to know that we as spirit souls are capable of much more than just traveling as we please wherever we want in and out of space. Not paying a single penny. “The soul is a spiritual spark which is many, many times more illuminating, dazzling and powerful than sun, moon or electricity.” The book starts off as a response to one scientific exploration and then goes on into explaining what the science of bhakti says about space-travel. Bhakti-yoga’s techniques are so much more superior than futile time-and-money-wasting modern methods, although from the perspective of self-discipline and self-purification it may seem to be quite hard and difficult at first. However, the nature of the soul is so powerful and pure that for a simple and sincere practitioner it becomes much easier than the laborious exhausting endeavors of the material realm.

Space travel has always been possible, and people have been traveling the universe long before the invention of rockets and shuttles. Vedic evidence suggests that yogis and other more evolved beings can travel freely throughout the cosmos via technologies that are practically unknown to us today.
Srila Prabhupada wrote Easy Journey to Other Planets—with its frequent mention of “antimatter” and “antimaterial particles”—in 1960, in response to the “space race” going on at the time between the U.S. and U.S.S.R., and the obsession with exploration of the moon, etc. by means of rocket-powered spacecraft. Prabhupada questions the ultimate significance of such endeavors, while pointing out that the exploration of material space is neither a new idea nor the most intelligent one, from the spiritual point of view.
In Easy Journey To Other Planets, Prabhupada shows through reason and reference to ancient Vedic texts that travel to other planets within this universe is ultimately an insignificant project. Our desire for cosmic exploration, he says, can be fully satisfied by traveling beyond this limited universe to the unlimited, antimaterial, spiritual world.
Easy Journey to Other Planets | Chapter 1 “Antimaterial Worlds”Finer than intelligence is the soul, which is not matter like mind and intelligence but is spirit, or antimatter. The soul is hundreds of thousands of times finer and more powerful than intelligence. We can thus only imagine the velocity of the soul in its traveling from one planet to another. Needless to say, the soul travels by its own strength and not with the help of any kind of material vehicle.
The bestial civilization of eating, sleeping, fearing and sense-gratifying has misled modern man into forgetting how powerful a soul he has. As we have already described, the soul is a spiritual spark which is many, many times more illuminating, dazzling and powerful than sun, moon or electricity. Human life is spoiled when man does not realize his real identity with his soul. Lord Caitanya appeared with His disciple Nityānanda to save man from this type of misleading civilization.
