    Semitic religions teach about the Truth in different ways. The Truth remains the same. There is one and only one God. Religions could be many.

    I know you are a good scholar of Hinduism, Dr. Tony. I admire your knowledge, your attitude and the nature of your understanding of spirituality

    A profound poem 10++

    People who remain in the ignorance of the Prime Truth won't be able to discriminate between Truth and Illusion. The day light is a truth. And the night is an illusion, at the most a reality, created by the continuous motion of the earth.

    The tranquil man's mind wouldn't move in relation to the moving materialistic world. It would discard all illusory objects.

    The Enlightened remain Awakened while the ordinary court the Sleep. Sleep refers to the night which further refers to the darkness. Darkness means ignorance. In the darkness, we won't be able to discriminate what is what. (to continue) (Report)Reply

    Yes dear Tony, our night is a day and our day is a night for the sage who wakes up at midnight to tranquilise. Thank you for sharing (Report)Reply
