Perceived Elitism in Enlightenment.

The messenger.

A lot of us suffer from the delusion that only a select elite amongst us, like the Buddha and the Christ, can attain enlightenment. We idolise or put on a pedestal those who have done so and thereby paint ourselves out of the picture where this is concerned, waiting perhaps for the time when we will don holy robes and other perceived symbols of holiness and be candidates for this, to our minds, hitherto unattainable goal. It is time now for those of us thus deluded to wake up to the fact that anyone can attain enlightenment – and that everyone will.

About Ian Gardner

Ian Gardner was born on the 20th February 1934 in Sri Lanka, then Ceylon, and christened Basil Ian Gunewardene. He was born two months prematurely and nearly died five times in his first two months. He moved to Australia in September 1969 where he changed his surname to Gardner. From childhood, he had an enquiring mind and an innate interest in the supernatural. Since 1986, nineteen years of regular periods of meditation, "searching within", reading and revelations have culminated in this free book which has been nine years in the making. Further writings followed and all his writings are available to all on the Internet free of charge. There is more information in the preface of the book.
