Gurdjieff had quoted from the book of aphorisms something which goes like this :

" to know all we need to know very little, but to know that little we need to know a lot".

i had written a blog saying that knowledge could be one of our problems.

Now even the Vedas ( scriptures of Advaita ) state that by knowing the Atman all else is known. Shankara the great Advaitic sage (non-dual) proclaimed that without knowledge one cannot gain salvation or Liberation.

So i am proposing that there must be two kinds of knowledge one binding and one liberating or at least not binding.
