Enlightenment is not the first step on the spiritual path. Nor is it the last. Yet, the word captures the imagination of people like never before. There was a time, not very long ago, when spiritual seekers began their quest by asking to see God. Not anymore. Questions like, “Does God exist?,” “Have you seen God?,” “Can you show God to me?” don’t seem to bother people anymore as much as questions about Enlightenment do. “What is Enlightenment?,” “Are you Enlightened?,” “Can you give Enlightenment to me?”- are the questions that a Guru in today’s world is more likely to encounter from the spiritual aspirant.
