Very touching words..!
The entire book consists of such stories or pieces. It is a meditation book, in fact.
So true these words hold good today as well
Some truths are eternal!
Lovely piece of writing, a great read :)
All credit to the author.
Glad you found it so.
Any practical example of knowledge and enlightenment?
Scholars have knowledge. But a person like Mahatma Gandhi was enlightened. The difference is that the former can teach you about love, tolerance, or whatever, while the latter's life shows you the quality. It was Lander who said that for those who are capable of love, love is a secondary affair. The same holds good for any virtue. People who really possess the virtue are the enlightened ones, while the others give lectures.
When you are enlightened you become a torch.. True. You lead the way and a true quality of a great leader.
A rare quality nowadays!
Sadly enough, these days religion has become a brand which people promote. Wearing a saffron robe being colorless within- such an apt description.
Religion is just another business now, thanks to politicians mainly but Babas too have their share in the capital.
Do you know a good book on how to get started with Meditation? I have been trying to get into it for a while. Torsten @ MightyTravels
I'm sorry I won't be able to help you with this. I don't use any book for meditation.
