Self-knowledge Self- knowledge is the foundation of
life. Without it life will be in turmoil. If there is no
self-knowledge we are bound to act from a psychological
center woven by thought and so limited and results in
limited action if we act from that center and so it leaves
an impression called which knocks our door for resolution.
This limited action results in experience of
non-understanding. Such collection of experiences which cause problems is called ego and at present we are functioning from which adds further experiences. Experiences and so ego is dead past. We are facing
living present moment wearing glasses of dead past.
So we are just perpetuating the past by incomplete action that has roots in past, tradition. This calamity happens
because we are using thought to solve both physical
and psychological problems. Psychological problems are
created by thought and how can you hope resolution of
psychological problems by thought? S o thought has no place in problems of psychological arena .Man has not solved psychological problems for the past 40,000 years of existence on earth. Though man is able to technological advance in a surprising for which his efficient thought
is the cause but lack of resolving psychological problems
is due to use of thought in resolving psychological problems thus complicating existing psychological problem because thought has no role in resolution of
psychological problem and thought is the causative factor for producing psychological problem. So if thought subsides when we face a psychological problem we develop insight which sees the whole net work of
psychological and keeps away from it if it found as a dangerous precipice. So psychological learning is through “insight” only where as physical learning of through “doing” which involves time. So physical learning involves thought and time. Psychological learning does not require time because here “Perception” is action. So seeing old pundit Adi Sankara out of compassion gave message to him the importance of self knowledge in life.
