Religion and yoga are not the means to truth realization; however, they are good for the mass. For common mass, the religion, God and yoga is more suited. Non dual truth is for the few who can grasp it. Every religion taught this or that, and the teachings contradict each other. Therefore, religious truth is individual truth not universal.
Religion is for the mass; however, it is not for the seeker of truth. Seeker of truth is trying to acquire non-dual wisdom. Seeker of truth must respect religionists and yogis because they are ignorant, and they are not in position to understand the higher truth. Thus, seekers of truth should not condemn religion and yoga is indulged in arguing with them. They should not discuss about the truth pursuit with religionists and yogis because they have accepted the birth entity, god and the universe as reality blindly without verifying.
The truth pursuit is for one who can think for himself, he has the right to think; whereas the lowest regards questioning as blasphemous and dangerous to religion.
Many people cannot grasp non-dual truth, even though they are highly intelligent and well read, and they would only misunderstand it, because they view and judge the world view on the base of ‘ego, which is the false self within the false experience. Furthermore, they try to prove their point with their accumulated scriptural knowledge.
Religion for religious scholars who cannot think beyond religion and god, however, they ought not to have the conceit that the religion is the highest. Religion is meant for the mass, while spirituality is meant for the seekers of truth.
The self-realized mind is called Gnani. The Gnanis help seekers according to their level of understanding, listening religious or mystic fables from yogis and religionists. They discuss non-dual truth, with seekers of truth.
