How many spiritually enlightened people are there?
Have you ever wondered this? Many years ago, when I was first enlightened, I wondered it, too. An answer popped into my awareness: 3400. That was over ten years ago.
Obviously, most people who are enlightened are completely unknown to the public. Not everyone who is awakened is built for being public about it. Not everyone who is awakened is a natural communicator. There are more reasons to not make one’s condition known than there are reasons to talk about it.
After I awakened, I did a pretty thorough search of the landscape of the time to see who my cohorts were, but since then I’ve had no interest in the genre. I figure my readers will be up on the latest crop of public enlightened people, so I’m asking you to weigh in.
Who is enlightened?
Have you met them, read their books, blogs or some other material? What makes you believe they are enlightened? That last question is probably really hard to answer, but I’m curious how people make these determinations.
My list (and remember, I stopped even looking ages ago):
He’s not alive, but I want to sneak on this list Nisargadatta Maharaj. Yes, I know, cheating! He’s quite dead, but when I first woke up, reading his books gave me the small comfort of finally feeling I was not alone.
