What is the nature of the religious life?
Small Group Discussion 1 Madras (Chennai), India
January 2, 1979
Does knowledge interfere with a religious life?
The movement away from the fact does not bring about the understanding of the fact.
When there is suffering, is that suffering a concept?
Why does the registration of pain take place?
The field of the known.
Consider a quiet pond, absolutely quiet, and you drop a stone into it. When the waves are over it is completely normal again. The normality is non-registration, because it’s back to its original condition.
A religious life is a life which is holistic, with total insight into the whole structure and nature of consciousness and the ending of that.
