Enlightenment is not bliss or peace of mind.
It is merely the absence of the existential fear and angst that comes with the belief in separation.
It is awareness aware that it is aware subsumed in the joy and awe of simply being.

Trivialization of Enlightenment

That quote is a statement of someone who no way is enlightened. It's like saying that a university bachelor is someone who knows to write or that a doctor is someone who knows how to use a statuscope.

The absence of existencial fear is a just a byproduct, a symptom, a tiny one by the way.

You are correct

Neo advaita creates so much distortion and misleads so many egos who stop on the path
