A lecturer on Vedanta made a tour of the towns of northern India, dazzling the audiences with his erudition. He had a phenomenal memory, and his replies to questions were a revelation.

The disciple of a traditional teacher went to one of these lectures, and was much impressed. On his return he asked his teacher about the lecturer: Ts he really as good as he seems?

How much does he really know about Vedanta ?’

‘Oh, a tremendous lot was the answer, ‘in fact, everything. And that’s all.’
