Independent investigation of truth

Independent investigation of truth is one of the most important qualifications for every True Seeker (I use sometimes the word “Adept” or “Disciple”) on the spiritual way. The words and guidance of others can be very helpful, but only your own understanding can lead you to the truth.

“Reality can be experienced only with the eye of understanding, not just by a scholar. What the moon is like must be seen with one’s own eyes. How can others do it for you?”

~ Adi Shankara
