Quotes & Poems

What enlightenment is not

To be enlightened is not to sit in meditation.

To be enlightened is not to read all spiritual books and text.

To be enlightened is not to have a flash of mystical experience.

It is not to sit all day in a strange posture.

Enlightenment is not to assume the role of a teacher.

It is not written on the forehead, neither does it radiate from the eyes.

When you can see regardless if your eyes are opened or closed,

Then you are among the few enlightened beings walking on earth.

For he who is truly enlightened does not say; I am enlightened!
