A sincere spiritual practitioner confronts many doubts on his path. Some of these doubts could be harmless but a few others can shake the foundation of our spiritual journey. Therefore a serious spiritualist sharpens his intellect while diligently pursuing his inner connection with God through meditation. A sharp sword cuts off ropes that are tightly entangled. Similarly, scriptural knowledge empowers our consciousness and enables us to break complicated and messy doubts that plague us endlessly.
Besides, transcendental knowledge purifies the soul and offers peace and solace to a practitioner struggling in this turbulent world, and thereby making our internal journey smooth and enjoyable.
