This quote relates as cows, which are kosher, has four stomaches, there are four layers of meaning is the scriptures know as PaRDeS.

You might be thinking I’m taking that statement to literally. I would have to disagree, as I do agree there is much symbolism in it, I have to say it is to be read literal also. One thing we learn when studying about PaRDeS, see THE RULES OF PARDES; Pardes (Jewish exegesis); and Beholding the Tree of Life: A Rabbinic Approach to the Book of Mormon, is that the deeper levels of meaning, or symbolic, and understanding do not contradict or negate the more surface levels, or literal, of understanding.
