Discussion -  3. "Knowledge  itself  is  a  painful  limitation  upon  the  Absolute" ...


Bharatham/ Bharatheeya  ( Hindus/ Hinduism ),  thus,  is  not  the  product  of  a  single  Prophet,  but  is  the  "WISDOM-DECLARATIONS  RISING  FROM  THE  EXPERIENCED  BOSOMS  OF  REALISED  MASTERS,( MAHARISHIS)"   which  have  been  relived  by  generations  of  Guru-Sishya  at Gurukulams  classes.


A  truth  that  has  been  tested  and  found  fit  upon  the  touch-stone  of  life  by  repeated  generations  alone  is  accepted  by  the  Rishis.




Both  "Vidya  and  Avidya,"   in  fact,  are  bondages.


Knowledge  is  certainly  a  release  from  the  shackles  of  'ignorance'  "but  the  knowledge  itself  is  a  painful  limitation  upon  the  Absolute."


One  may  get  over  the  confusions  of  ignorance  with  knowledge  but,  in  itself,  this  will  find  us  only  chailed  by  the  limitations  of  knowledge.

To  transcend  both  is  to  reach  the  state  of  'Absolute Perfection.'



In  the  following  Mantram-s,  we  have  got  a  correct  indication  of  the  exact  import  and  the  mutual  relationship  that  is  to  be  maintained  between "Vidya  and  Avidya."
