Unattachment of knowledge

‘Come Ye Lord! Thou art welcome!  
My little hermitage is purified by the touch of Thy favourite fragrant feet.’

‘Yes, I have come here for giving you a present.
I have come today to present all the scriptures
and the entire knowledge to you.  
The goddess of learning will, by my grace, become your maid today.’

‘But how will it be beneficial to me, my Lord?’

‘You will acquire an enviable reputation with the help of your knowledge.  
You will be able to attain immortality.  
Why should you ask about its utility?’

‘Nay, my Lord!  Let me remain illiterate.  
Let me remain illiterate as I am today.  
Let the scriptures shine themselves in my humble heart.  
Let me lead a life that has intermingled itself with learning or intelligence.  
Let me derive joy from such a life.  
Only that will make me blessed.  
Excepting that tell me, O my lord!   
What shall I do by keeping this burden on my head?  
What shall I gain thereby too?’

- Shri Yogeshwarji
