Question: How can we explain, from the point of view of the connection of spiritual roots with material branches, why the main remedy against the coronavirus is washing hands?
Answer: The virus manifests itself in our weakest point. However, this is not about dirty hands covered with material dirt but about vessels of reception, which hands symbolize.
We get our hands dirty all the time by the fact that we want to grab more for ourselves. Because the coronavirus is transmitted mainly through dirty hands, saliva, and air it directly affects our organs of reception.
