wisdom versus common sense

wisdom versus common sense

Although it is changing unfortunately I always look up to India and Indians. I also admire Indians for having really no common sense at all. But these people have lot of wisdom. But unfortunately it is changing. It is really sad to see these amazing looking airports springing up like in Delhi. Really just so like air condition, polished, everything. Cows walking on the street – to me this is one of those last remaining sign of a culture that used to appreciate wisdom more than the common sense. I don’t know whether this actually ever make any sense to you. Basically I am talking about a spiritual path. A spiritual path must really transcend the common sense. If you want to call spiritual path a common sensical thing, then it has to be a transcendental common sense. It cannot be the usual worldly common sense.
