Let us welcome Agnishom who has assured me that he would join the forum soon.

I will be expecting his 4868th post here.

P.S.:I like this forum so much that I have recommended its name to *NaN* people but no one agreed to join. (I think people ignore me [ ]). But Agnishom being my Zeroth victim just joined the forum. This is what makes me feel like -->

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.

What if the enemy knows me and himself too?

Then I would say you have one tough opponent but the quote does say it is possible to know oneself.

It doesn't. You are making asumptions

Well then if you need more evidence, both Buddhism and Hinduism as well as a few others stress a knowledge of one's self.

The yogins call it the path of the intellectual. There are others and my memory about the fine points is poor.

I do not know. It has never happened to me. It is difficult to overcome the way of the world.

I only know what has been told to me by better men. I did not believe them, I did not believe my father.

Hi Agnishom

Welcome to the forum!

Why do you think people need to be enlightened?

Here lies the reader who will never open this book. He is forever dead.

Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most. ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment
