What is enlightenment


Enlightenment is the direct revelation that consciousness is infinite, not
the mere logical conclusion or inference of its infinity. The sole engine of
this revelation is the love for the Absolute, an overwhelming desire for Truth,
an all-trumping longing for the Divine.  This is the only necessary and
sufficient condition for true awakening. It is the power  of this discovery that
transmits itself in the teaching. Without this power, the logical arguments of
non-dualism are just empty words.
