Not Learning but Practicing

Spiritualism is not about “Learning sitting on the fence” but is about transformation. A Valmiki does not simply remain the author but enters the story of Ramayana. Similarly, a Vyas does not only remain the author of Mahabharata but begins to participate within the epic of Mahabharata. A Janak while listening Astavakra Geeta becomes a participant in the epic of Ramayana. Similarly a Zeus does not do story telling but gives birth to Perseus and lives the story with his own human son.

In the last supper, Jesus offered bread and wine to his companions suggesting that the bread was his body and wine was his blood. This necessarily means that Jesus taught his companions to absorb “Jesus” within them rather than simply learning his teachings. Spiritualism cannot be learned but lived.
