Can Enlightenment be learned or proven?
GuruSwamiG: People always wish to obtain Enlightenment like they obtain a degree. But this is a path of simplicity itself. Only in the utmost simplicity will you realize That Which Is. Realization is simply awakening to the Truth of Being, which is beyond all concepts and ideas which belong to the world of Maya (that which creates and perpetuates illusion) and change and mind. Therefore, you cannot get there by intellectual means. In Kundalini the process is that of dispelling ignorance not gaining more relative knowledge.
