(Don’t) Analyse This

The Realisation of the Absolute: A Treatise on the Vedanta Philosophy and Its Methodology by Swami Krishnananda of the Sivananda Ashram, Rishikesh.

“The intellectual sifting of empirical categories with great intensity of sincerity and realistic fervour is itself clear proof of how the intellect and the instinct deceive us by making us love and take deep interest in what is to be completely contradicted and negated in a higher and truer eternal experience.”

    There is nothing to analyze to begin with.

    That only applies to the enlightened. For the ignorant, analysis should be encouraged so they can realise for themselves that there is nothing to analyze.

    If they don’t do the analysis and make this knowledge their own, then they’ll just be parroting words they don’t understand.

    The Gita talks about crossing the ocean of samsara on the raft of knowledge. Once you get to the other shore you must abandon the raft, but if you let it go before then you’ll drown.
