Sankara's quotes

It useless to seek the Real...

Sankara's picture



“The Real cannot be faked! It is useless to seek the Real, you have only to give up illusion! While searching for the Real, you maintain the belief, the illusion.”

— Satyavan



Knowledge is infinite... and useless!!

Sankara's picture



“Knowledge can make you a scholar, an interesting person, an excellent speaker, but it will not make you Divine! What is the use of so much knowledge if you don't know who you are? With Self-Realization all questions cease. The questions disappear along with the questioner... Knowledge is infinite and useless... Real Knowledge is Being!”

— Satyavan



Modern Science

Sankara's picture



“Modern science has proved that there is no solidity anywhere, so to what do you get attached to? And from what do you want to detach from? Forget all that nonsense, and quietly abide in your blissful nature!”

— Satyavan
