KINDS OF KNOWLEDGE

Eruch Jessawala

 
One day in 1959, Meher Baba said to me, "There are two kinds of knowledge; knowledge gained through intelligence (using the mind) and hidden knowledge (not using the mind)."

Baba then explained further: "A four-year old child has to be shown a picture of a table and chair with the word written under the illustration. It is only then that the child can name the objects correctly.

"On the other hand, an illiterate man knows all about tables and chairs, but does not know how to read and write the words."
