With Salutaions to my Guruji,
Oh Baba Swamiji Let all of them over here seeking the truth get the experience, I sincerely pray let your blessings be upon them to experience the Truth, the bliss, the joy and transcedental tranquility which you have given to lakhs of people all over the world.

In the words of my Guruji,
He always said that by reading books, scriptures a person only learns about god but cannot know him. Which is well understood by the example given below .
By reading books on cow you can know that it has four legs, one tail. it gives milk etc and when you see one you can identify it by what you have read about it but unless you come face to face with an real cow you wont know how is the milk,its feel, its taste. Which is possible only by experiencing and not merely by reading or talking about it.
Gurudev please let us all experience the bliss of being in your presence.

Taste the cake instead of analyzing it

There was once a heated discussion here precisely about this subject: some argued that experience is that counts and the others said that understanding.

Let me find it...

Experience VS. Theory -or- Is the moon made of cheese?

and another relevant comment in the following post:

Observing the thinker

I want to quote some memorable lines appearing in the second post that I think were originally said by Riktam Kantu:

When you get a medicine from a doctor, you do not get better by analyzing the medicine but by taking it.

In order to find out whether a cake is tasty or not, you do not analyze the recipe but cook it and taste it.

When you fall in love with someone, you do not analyze psychological theories about love but follow your emotions and realize the love.

Why should it be different in the case of spirituality?
