From the Introduction:
Srila Prabhupada uses an analogy to show why analogies are useful for understanding transcendental subject matter. If one tries to watch the moon move through the sky with the naked eye, it is very difficult to see how it is moving. But if one watches the moon through the branches of a tree, as it moves between one branch to the next, the branches become a helpful tool for seeing the moon’s movement. Similarly analogies help us to understand transcendental subject matter by using examples which are closer to our experiences of this world which we see and experience through direct perception.
