This can be compared to an arithmetic master not telling his pupils the answers to their sums until they have worked them out. There are some modern arithmetic books in which the answers are given at the end, but still the pupils have to work the sums out; the answers serve only to check whether they have done the work rightly or not. There is no merit in knowing the answers if you have not done the work. So it is with the expositions of doctrinal theory so easily obtainable nowadays. The Chandogya Upanishad goes even farther than the Ch’an Master whom Suzuki quotes, for there the Guru gives the pupils a wrong explanation to see which of them will be taken in by it and which will see through it and come back for a correction.

Ramakrishna was not mistaken in saying that Vivekananda would complete his work. That work has two aspects; to restore Hinduism to 34 vigour and self-respect in India and to make it known as a spiritual current in the West, a current available to Western seekers. Both were carried to completion by Vivekananda. Ramakrishna himself had no foreign disciples, but he dreamed once that he was in a Western town of large, modern buildings, surrounded by Westerners, and he interpreted it to mean that he would have many disciples in the West.

Speaking of pure Self-realisation and the direct path to it, Bhagavan affirmed quite definitely both that there are no stages in Realisation and that realisation is not normally permanent when first attained except in very rare cases. It may come in occasional flashes but cannot be permanent until the vasanas (inherent tendencies impelling one to desire one thing and shun another) have been eradicated. Two modes of conscious planned ascent are indicated whatever name one may give them (apart from the occasional transportation of the mystic and the uncharted elevation of certain saints); that of the man who ascends in stages, becoming 30 stabilized this lifetime in some higher state, possibly with some higher posers, but with no direct and often even no theoretical knowledge of the supreme state of Self-realisation; and that of the man who envisages the supreme truth of Identity, strives towards it, perhaps has occasional glimpses of its Realisation but, until attaining it, is not established in any higher state.
