It is wise in most times to look at the content of information (knowledge) rather than the source of the knowledge because source is an illusion whereas knowledge is not. Because there are chances for one to lose attention on the physical form, age, gender or past/future life of the individual teacher. And most importantly the greatest mistake one may make is forgetting the self experiences and inner voice and giving importance to the experiences and words of others, especially those who are older to one or those who are in a superior material position (eg. Teachers, Parents, Superior officers, Politicians, Ochre/white-dressed human forms, etc). Knowledge is beyond age, gender, time and cannot be fully described through words. Knowledge is an experience which makes one free from the ignorance that one is bound to body, mind, intellect and ego or the past happenings happened in one’s life. Experiences are unique and incomparable, so it is better not to expect the same experience to be experienced by one when one read/hear about another’s experience (yogi or devotee or seeker). Comparison hinders experiencing the reality. Placing the focus internally and lessening the outward run following the sensual pull of the five senses helps one experience the self, which is the simple and valuable reality. It is utter foolishness to forget the available valuable diamond in one’s own hand to earn the less valuable pearls on another’s hand whoever it maybe.
