Re: Enlightenment

Rituals, mantras, postures are most commonly used to fortify & increase concentration.
But there are many other methods - and in my opinion it is best to develop ones own.

Re: Enlightenment

There is no difference between an enlightened man and an ignorant one. What makes the difference is that one realizes it and the other is ignorant of it.
