"The techniques are not there to throw light on Brahman. They are there to dispel the darkness of ignorance. They destroy ignorance little by little, but they do not illuminate Brahman. Brahman itself is illumination. Just as the sun is found to be always shining, but clouds can darken the sky. The wind can blow away the clouds and reveal the fact that the sun is shining but it cannot make the sun shine. All the techniques are intended to destroy ignorance but they do not reveal the inner most Self, the Atman. The Self is light, It is eternal and It is the witness of all."
