Those who are weeded to philosophical and scriptural knowledge will permanently remain in illusion believing duality as reality.

Until and unless they make sure 'I' is not self and world is unreal through inquiry and reasoning they bound to belive their intelctul accumulated knowledge as wisdom.

The wisdom is knowledge of the the reality which is beyond the experience of duality.

THUS PHILOSOPHICAL AND SCRIPTURAL KNOWLEDGE WHICH IS BASED ON EGO AS SELF ARE NOT NEEDED IN PURSUIT OF TRUTH

Non Duality is also a belief

You say the exact same thing in all your blog posts: duality is "an illusion based on ego" then this certain xxx in the duality-based reality should not be regarded. And there you go from one thing to another in reality and negate them.

You do not need to dedicate a blog post for every object in reality, we got the picture :-)

Seriously: all advaitans share with you this belief, there is no much new in that but remember that it is just a belief because you cannot experience the non-duality nature of reality while you are not realized, as long as you are in your mind.

Your second error to my view is that the fact that something in reality is based on duality does not mean it cannot help in spiritual development. You make an automatic overall assumption that it cannot and I think you are not correct. You are currently identified with your mind so the tools at your disposal are mind-oriented, in other words, based on duality, and therefore the only one that can sefrve you and it is ok to use them.
