Thoughtlessness is not wisdom and thoughtlessness is not Gnanic or Brahmic truth.

Where people cannot and do not think, they follow others. A Gnani will see the world and get to know it is only an illusory appearance. He is not blind; he sees three states or objects as it is, but he knows it is only falsehood. Just as you see a mirage, the Gnani sees the mirage of this universe too; but he is not deceived by it. So long as one is ignorant, he will have the idea that God has created this world because the causal notion will be there.

 Nobody wants suffering, and while the notion that suffering can be got rid of by appealing to God these wishes will sway the mind to believe in God. For them religion will arise, but for the man who wants truth, religion offers no consolation.

One has to inquiry into the mind or the world and its nature i.e. matter, there can be no such thing as nondual wisdom or Gnana without understanding what is mind or universe. Seeker of truth will not be able to find answers in the path of religion and yoga are based on blind belief or imagination because they think the mind is within the body.  

The yogi or religionists may just by say “I know” and not explain how one knows the ultimate truth. Because he has read it in the book or scriptures or his guru may have told him “yogic Samadhi is liberation.

The self-deluded believers tell others the same, because he has not investigated if it is right. People give lectures and write books on yoga and eastern philosophy.

Some may say for many years they are enjoying mystic exaltation, trances, meditations and peace but they have verified what they experienced is really truth. . Then this state is not permanent because when this state passes away again they enter into duality. This state which is impermanent is not Gnana or self—awareness.  This proves he had attained a yogic condition, but not Gnana.

Yogic Samadhi vanished because it was not the highest insight. The Gnani, however never loses his Gnana. Dislodging a Gnani from his insight is impossibility. Once he has thoroughly seen the truth he simply can't fall away from it.

Many enjoying a similar sort of mystic exaltation and peace, but whether it passes away soon or endures the whole of life, it is not Gnana, because it did not come through striving to investigate the nature of the mind or world, it came only through meditation on the self; that is the yogic reward for such meditation but it is only one half.

The Gnani not only gets inner peace but also truth because he also has grasped the truth about matter, which is as much consciousness as his- innermost self.

It is not possible to stop thought for more than a half-second whilst in the waking experience. If one succeeds in controlling thought and then banishes it, one passes into yogic Nirvikalpa Samadhi, which is identical with deep sleep. The only difference between ordinary deep sleep and Samadhi therefore is that the ordinary man falls asleep involuntarily whereas the yogi has the satisfaction of knowing that he has passed into sleep by his own effort of will in banishing thoughts. Thoughtless states not wisdom because thoughts arise to the false self within the false experience.  There is no use of struggling to stop the thoughts which belongs to the falsehood? One has to trace the source of the falsehood which is nit the form of mind or universe to unfold the reality of the true existence.

Thoughtlessness is not wisdom and thoughtlessness is not Gnanic or Brahmic truth.
