Our world is full of knowledge that harms us.

And when I say, “Our world,” I do not mean the Earth.

I mean — our personal world, our mind.

The aim of Spirituality is to rid the mind of false knowledge.

This is the only True Knowledge — that all knowledge is false, in the sense that it may be practical, but it does not endure.

It does not bring you to the last point.

Even though it appears that with every step in knowledge, with every progress that mankind is making, mankind’s suffering is reducing, but that is not really happening.

Is the man of today any less in sorrow than the man three thousand years back? I am talking of ‘sorrow’, not physical hardships, not material accumulations, none of them.

Sorrow is unmitigated.

Man is still cunning, jealous, insecure, very-very afraid. And that is why knowledge doesn’t help beyond it’s own plane.

The aim of the Scriptures is to give you knowledge that will bring you out of the cycle of knowledge.
