Steeped in ignorance, men engage themselves in activities and
pursuits and considering themselves men of understanding and learned, stagger along
aimlessly like blind men led by the blind, going round and round in the cycle of births.
The main obstacle in the path of the man striving for the
higher life is the identification of one sell with the body. Therefore, all teaching
in Hindu Vedanta stresses on man finding his soul within. If one realizes the divinity of
the eternal spirit within, the battle is won. Concentrating the mind on the Spirit
within, man should realize the divine character of his own soul and its inherent freedom.
