Question: But it doesn't just attack me; I seem to like ignorance.Sri Chinmoy: Ignorance is so bad! In some cases we do cherish ignorance; in other cases we do not, but somebody is making us feel that we are cherishing ignorance. A child may not like to eat a certain food, but the mother keeps on begging him to eat it or forces the food into the child’s mouth, saying, “It is very tasty; it is good for you.” Finally, the child becomes sick of hearing the mother and says, “Yes, it is very nice.”
You have already made your choice between ignorance and wisdom, but somebody is making you feel that you are cherishing ignorance.
