Spiritual ignorance is not related to one’s educational background – Swami Tejomayananda



We can only start a journey from where we are and progress in steps, leaps or bounds. The first stage on the spiritual path is the state of ignorance or bondage.

Spiritual ignorance is not related to one’s educational background.

One could be a highly qualified professional but spiritually ignorant; or be an illiterate and still be highly evolved spiritually.

The one who is bound is not even aware of being so, and if told by others, he laughs at their ignorance!

The bound person ignores the Supreme and respects only material prosperity. Even if he believes in the Lord, he prays only for fulfilling his desires.
