|Shreemad Bhagawad Geeta, Chapter 4, Verse 38|
न हि ज्ञानेन सदृशं पवित्रमिह विद्यते।
तत्स्वयं योगसंसिद्धः कालेनात्मनि विंदति॥
English Translation of Sanskrit quotation:
Here (in this world), there is nothing as pure(sublime) as knowledge.
One who is accomplished in 'yoga', gets it within himself.
Commentary on Sanskrit quotation:
An old English saying has it "Fear arises from ignorance, Knowledge is power." The word knowledge has deeper meaning here. It means the true knowledge of the world. Adwait philosophy in the vedas says it is the Chaitanya ,the productive power of the universe, which is ageless. Everything else is temporary and perishable. One has to understand that the physical body is "born" and "dies" but not the soul. When a person reaches this level of consciousness through rigorous meditation, his fears about the worldly matters disappear & he becomes fearless knowing that his soul is imperishable & is one with god. This true knowledge serves as a guiding star in the journey of life.
