self-knowledge – the true path


“The only true ‘path’ is the one of self-knowledge, our problem being one of self-ignorance. ‘Realization’ and self-knowledge are effectively the same thing. No practice of any kind is likely to bring about this knowledge; the best that practices can do is to prepare the mind to be able to recognize that knowledge when it arrives (which it usually does via a qualified teacher using the techniques of traditional advaita).”
