Philosophy of Knowledge - Vinay Rai


There is no use of our gaining a lot of knowledge if all we use it for is the accumulation of material wealth. Why do we want to just master the world of matter, the objective world? Like the monkey which could not pull out its hand from out of the narrow-necked pot, because it kept holding in its grasp a handful of groundnuts which the pot contained, we too are suffering today, as we are unwilling to release our hold on the handful of pleasurable things we have grasped from the world. Our monkey minds are leading us to the wrong belief that the accumulation of material possessions will endow us with joy and calm. But Divine Love alone can give that everlasting joy. This is possible when we renounce greed, ego, and self-centeredness. May God bless you always.
