What is the barometer of the path chosen by the intelligent?
Liberation is the realisation of awareness, achievement of oneness with the Divine. Each and every living being has to attain this consummation, this goal - the Brahman. That is its true destination. Some day or the other, the urge to win release from the shackles of grief and joy, and the bonds of “I” and “mine” will awaken and emerge. The path that is taken then inevitably leads to freedom (moksha). Seeking that path is the sign of the intelligent person. Instead of this search, when one considers the objective world as all-important and feels drawn toward its charm, life is barren and is of no consequence.
