Seekers on the spiritual path are curious to know about Enlightenment. What is Enlightenment?
I say, "Enlightenment is like a joke!" It is like a fish in the ocean searching for the ocean. Once upon a time, there was a congregation of fish, who got together to discuss who among them had seen the ocean. None of them could say they had actually seen the ocean. Then one fish said, "I think my great grandfather had seen the ocean!" A second fish said, "Yes, yes, I have heard about this." A third fish said, "Yes, certainly, his great grandfather has seen the ocean."So they built a huge temple and made a statue of the great grandfather of that particular fish! They said, "He had seen the ocean. He had been connected with the ocean."
Enlightenment is the very core of our being; going to the core of our self and living there. ~ Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
