Knowledge.

The messenger.

“The deepest mysteries are found without any teaching.”

The above quote is possibly attributable to the Buddha Gautama. I came across it a few days ago in a book where it was superimposed on a photograph of a sacred Bo tree and a temple.

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.

    Merry Christmas, Ian.

    The above quote by Buddha Gautama will give me food for thought during the holidays.

      Thank you, Paul. Complements if the season to you and all the best in 2011.
      The reason I noticed that quote is that years ago I came to the same conclusion as evidenced in my writing. I believe the fact is pointed out or alluded to quite a few times but I could only find this one from The Milk Is White:

      The Mystic.
      The mystic is one who achieves mystical experience or knowledge of divine mysteries. One who seeks a reality beyond normal human understanding or experience, and essential to understanding the reason for life, through contemplation meditation, prayer and spiritual conduct aimed at achieving direct intuitive experience of the divine truth. Hence, the mystic has no teacher and is of no one “religion” but is of the essence of all “religions and treks the path of enlightenment alone.
      “Quo Vadis?”
