Seek Experience Not Expertise
Today’s (22nd April, 2015) Nithya Satsang starts on a celebratory note with Meenakshi Brahmotsavam, the 10-day cosmic festival of Devi Meenakshi’s marriage with Mahadeva – which is manifesting divine energies on the energy-field of Nithyananda Ashram. Continuing on Ishavasya Upanishad in Living Advaita Series, Paramahamsa Nithyananda expands on verse 9, which describes the obstacles people face in seeking. There are two types of people–initial level seeker who worship ignorance and advanced level seeker who worship half-truth. The advanced seeker, who has incomplete knowledge, has more danger of entering into deeper darkness (andham tamah) than the initial seeker. But, whose who worship knowledge for the sake of knowledge, become embodiment of Vidyā. Enlightenment comes an experience not as an expertise. Isha Upanishad – Verse 9 andhaṁ tamaḥ praviśanti ye’avidyām upāsate | tato bhūya iva te tamo yau vidyāyāṁ ratāḥ || 9 || Today’s Vakyartha Sadas, topic for spiritual explorations on meaning of truth is – how the incomplete knowledge makes you arrogant and makes you lose your seeking, and makes you egoistic; and how the growth gets stopped by the incomplete knowledge.
