Throw out both ignorance and knowledge to attain complete realization – Sri Ramakrishna

Ignorance is the knowledge of many things – the knowledge of diversity without the knowledge of unity or of the One God. The conviction that God is in all objects – that there is unity in variety – is called knowledge. Knowing him intimately is realization.Suppose you get a thorn in your foot. You take a second thorn to pick it out. Then you throw both away. So to get rid of the thorn of ignorance, you use the thorn of relative knowledge. Then you throw away both ignorance and knowledge in order to attain complete realization.Sri Ramakrishna
