புத்தக ஞானமா? மத்தக ஞானமா?

ஜென்னும் பகவான் ரமணரும்

Once there was a Zen Master to devoted many years working out
Zen Koans and meditating on Zazen Meditation.  On the day of his
final attainment, he took all his books out into the yard, and burned
them all!

(Bhagavan Ramana:  Since Atma is within Panchakosa, how to
search in books from outside? - Who am I?  1902)
