Dr Pillai (Baba) on Why Knowledge is Bondage (highlights from Dr Pillai’s 2012 Guru Purnima Retreat)

October 23, 2012

Namaste everyone,

Dancing Shiva

Divine archetype Shiva stated in His Shiva Sutras that “knowledge is bondage” (jnanam bhandah). Too much knowledge, while useful for our material existence, can limit us from making quantum leaps in our spiritual understanding and evolution.

For example. professionals such as doctors and lawyers acquire vast bodies of knowledge and are trained to think in certain set ways so as to excel in their respective professions.

However, as Shiva succintly states, too much knowledge limits the mind and hinders the spiritual aspirant from experiencing the magic and tremendous power of universal consciousness. A common illustration to understand this is to imagine the small drop of water in the ocean who clings to its identity as a small drop of water. As such, the small drop of water is unable to comprehend and experience the vastness of the ocean within which it exists.

In this segment, Dr Pillai (Baba) explains how we can understand “knowledge is bondage” in the  context of our limited frontal and back brain and why saints and yogis use vibhuti (holy ash) to block out the negative energies of frontal lobe thinking in order to stay in the mid-brain (3rd eye / divine mind).
