Thought for the day 14th July 2004

真理の悟りは、助言を受けること、お話や講話を聞くこと、読書による勉強や苦行を通じては得られません。実際の経験から得た英知は、本から得た知識、すなわち塩分を含んで飲用に適さない海水のような混じりものの知識と比べると、雨滴のように純粋です。日光の作用によって、空高く蒸発する水は、塩分が取り除かれ甘くまろやかになります。サーダナ(霊性修行)は、水に甘味を与える太陽光線のようなものです。

プラシャンティ・ニラヤムの掲示板より
2004年7月14日

The realization of the One cannot be gained through advice, listening to talks and discourses, study of books, or austerities. The wisdom which comes as actual experience is as pure as a raindrop, compared to bookish knowledge or derived knowledge, which is like sea water, saline and unfit for drinking. Through the action of the sun's rays, salinity is removed and the water which is thus lifted into the sky becomes sweet and sustaining. Sadhana (spiritual exercises) is like the sun's heat that confers sweetness to the water.

- Baba
