Back to Intelligence & Ignorance
The Great Actor, Great Enjoyer, & Great Renouncer #280
In yet another story from the sacred scripture, Yoga Vasishtha, a clear and direct lesson in dharmic life is delivered via this wisdom chart, free of reservations. It describes in threefold fashion how the adept luminary, once having been a sincere practitioner, lives freely after attaining a station of consciousness that is beyond acts laced with agency, above all pleasures enjoyed for personal satisfaction, and transcendent of thoughts that still believe that the worlds of name and form in time and space are somehow real. He/she becomes “great” in all three of these modes, even though it may appear to others that ordinary life still goes on, on the outside.
