The last question
Question 4
IT IS SO. I KNOW. BUT I DON'T KNOW.
Parinirvana, you are coming very close. That knowing is a kind of not-knowing, that knowing is a kind of ignorance.
Socrates is reported to have said that 'When I was young I knew that I knew. As I became more mature I started feeling that I don't know much -- very little. As I became more and more mature and alert I came to know that I know nothing.' The day he declared that 'I know only one thing: that I know nothing' the oracle in the temple of Delphi declared him the greatest wise man.
People were puzzled because he said 'I know only one thing: that I know nothing' and the oracle in Delphi said that 'He is the wisest man in the world now.' They went to Socrates and they told him about what the oracle had said. Socrates said 'I can't comment on it. All that I can say is again this, that I know only one thing: that I know nothing. Now it is not my business what the oracle has said -- you go and ask the oracle.'
And they went back to the temple and they asked, and the oracle said 'That's WHY he has been declared to be the wisest man in the world, because now he knows that he knows nothing.'
To know that 'I don't know' is a great realization.
It happened in Ramakrishna's life...
He was a simple man, very simple, extraordinarily ordinary, immensely beautiful in his simplicity. He was not like your so-called MAHATMAS -- Mahatma Gandhi, etcetera, etcetera -- he was really a sage. His fragrance spread all over Bengal, people began coming to see this mad priest of Dakshineshwar and they saw something immensely beautiful happening there. And priests and the scholars and the pundits gathered; there was a great congregation. They had gathered to declare him a new incarnation of God. All the great thinkers, scholars, and traditional priests of Bengal -- all had gathered, and they all agreed unanimously that he was the incarnation of God. When they declared this, he was just sitting in between them, laughing and chewing PAN. He was really a very simple man. And when they said 'We have decided to declare that you are the new incarnation of God' he said 'If you say, then it must be so -- but I don't know.' And he continued chewing his PAN.
'If you say, it must be so -- but I don't know.' You see the beauty of it? Truth is so beautiful and so simple, so unassuming, non-pretentious.
You say, Parinirvana: IT IS SO. I KNOW. BUT I DON'T KNOW.
If you had stopped at I KNOW, then I would not have been happy with you. That is a kind of disease when one stops on knowledge, that is a great disease. Because you have said also: BUT I DON'T KNOW, it is beautiful.
Remember always, not knowing is the greatest knowing, and ignorance is bliss. The sage again becomes ignorant like a child; he unlearns all that life forces one to learn, he effaces it all, he wipes off the whole tape -- he becomes clean of knowledge. And at that very moment when he is utterly clean of knowledge, knowledge. happens; that knowledge is known as MAHAPRAGYA, the great wisdom.
