Lately, I have been meeting a lot of self -proclaimed enlightened souls. The moment you meet them, they will show you their spiritual resume. They will tell you their meditation hours & how they are the best among all ignorant souls. The more they brag about their “power”, the further they are from enlightenment. So, how to know if you are meeting an enlightened soul?

The first characteristic of an enlightened soul is that He is a man of few words. You might see him helping people or communicating with them but mostly He lives in His own world. You will never see Him talking about himself. He is neither egoistic, nor humble; He is just Himself! You will always feel attracted toward a spiritual soul. You will just want to be in His presence & speak your heart out. Once you go near Him, you will feel like a child again. You will feel an enormous energy around Him. If you feel so, just know that you are close to your destination.

When you ask a sleeping person if he’s sleeping, and he says, “Yes”, that means the answer is ‘No’. Spirituality is such a phenomena. It is best answered in silence.

    Powerful, powerfully written article. Ironically verbose profile of the author, written and submitted by him. Sometimes you just gotta laugh. Sending you love, Chandresh! 🙂
