Knowledge is available from the outside. Knowing needs an inner Purification. Knowledge is information, knowing is your capacity to see, to understand. Knowledge never transforms anybody. It can make you a great scholar, but to be a scholar is to be nothing but a parrot. The scholar simply repeats: he is a gramophone record, neither more nor less. But a knower knows, knows on his own authority. He does not believe, he sees, He is not a Christian, he is a christ; he is not a Buddhist, he is a buddha.

Remember this. It needs a radical change in your consciousness, a totally new kind of consciousness: alert, aware, meditative, loving. These are the foundations which will make you able to see. You will not become more informed, but you will become totally transformed.

My work is not to inform you but to transform you.
