Which is most important- knowledge or devotion?
Q : Which is most important- knowledge or devotion?
A : Both are very important. Without devotion there can be no achievement on the path of Knowledge and without Knowledge, devotion would be more likely to be a blind following. So you can turn out to be a fool in the name of devotion and you can become very egoistic person if you don’t have the right approach towards the meditation and the meditation practices.
It is very important that the Seeker of Knowledge remains humble. Humility is the first and the foremost important ingredient of your meditation practices. In devotion there should be a deep sense of longing for the Divinity, a deep sense of surrender to God, to your teacher, to your Guru. But, devotion shouldn’t be blind at all.
