Knowledge through Experience


The knowledge of Truth as gained through the established creeds is like the knowledge of a town which one gets by studying it on a map. To see and know the town one has to take the trouble of actually going there.

It is one thing merely to see the picture of a cow; quite a different thing to have a real cow and to drink its milk.

In the same way all religious creeds, though useful for the time being, ultimately must be replaced by actual experience and the inner spiritual Path must be traversed before one can realize the infinite Truth.

-Life At Its Best, p52


“Spiritual freedom has to be won by oneself for oneself through watchful and unfailing war against the lower self and the lower desires.”
(, p2313)
