Enlightenment, and the need to change

Following is an excerpt from a samvaad (dialogue) session with Acharya Prashant.

L: There is a lot of talk about enlightenment, but what is enlightenment?

AP: When you know, that is enlightenment. When you refuse to know it is darkness.

No person is enlightened.
