Mantram-4. "Answer by Rishi 'Angira' ( to 'Saunaka' ) : 'Knowledge is of two types'. "
Discussion-5. Final touch by Swami Sri Adi Sankaracharya .....
Unlike these days, when we approach a Master only to criticise and carp at him, in the days of our glorious ancient culture, seekers approached the teachers with a reverence and adoration the like of which is not seen in the country today anywhere .... except, prbably, when an applicant, after a couple of years 'soul-killing unemployment,' approaches a petty commercial agent with an application for a petty job!
In the presence of the Master, the disciple dared not talk too much; what he had to say, he said in the minimum number of words leaving half of it unsaidin suggestive expressions readable to the kind and sympathetic intelligence of a Guru!
"Hence this answer and the way of treatment adopted by the teacher is quite appropriate, says Swami Sri Adi Sankaracharya."
