JNANA (True Knowledge)


Jnâna (knowledge) is “creedlessness”; but that does not mean that it despises creeds. It only means that a stage above and beyond creeds has been gained.

Judge

We must not judge of higher things from a low standpoint.(III. 3)

Each man is to be judged by his own idea each race by its own standard and ideal, each custom of each country by its own reasoning and conditions. (V. 241)

In criticising another, we always foolishly take one especially brilliant point as the whole of our life and compare that with the dark ones in the life of another. Thus we make mistakes in judging individuals.
