Advaitin saint on the world
I don't know where to post this, but since this is about the advaitin saint, Raman Maharishi, I thought I could post it here and contrast it with the buddhist view. He wasnt a buddhist but an advaitin. He was of the view that one should not worry about the world, and think only of one's salvation. Although it seems selfish, he explains that people who care about the world often end up creating more mischief, since they don't know themselves. It is sheer arrogance to say one cares about the world when one is ignorant of the self.
Agree or disagree? This man was enlightened and his words contain great wisdom. But do you, as a buddhist, find it hard to be indifferentI to the world? Or do you see that this advaitin's approach is more practical?
