Correlate higher with lower experience
Mr. Raghaviah: How shall we correlate the higher experience with the lower experience (meaning spiritual experience with mundane affairs)?
M.: There is only one experience. What are the worldly experiences but those built up on the false ‘I’?
Ask the most successful man of the world if he knows his Self. He will say “No”. What can anyone know without knowing the Self?
All worldly knowledge is built upon such a flimsy foundation.
