“The human being should understand that ‘I am mūḍha, so I’ll have to learn’. And the Vedas says, ‘Then go to guru’. Tad-vijñānārthaṁ sa gurum evābhigacchet: (MU 1.2.12) ‘You must go if you want to learn’. And if he remains mūḍha and speculates, then he remains mūḍha. He never gets the enlightenment. He remains continually… Mūḍhā janmani janmani mām aprāpyaiva (BG 16.20). He cannot get God. Life after life, he will go on like that, mūḍha.”
