Question
Dear Sir,

Is Enlightened has variance, he is more Enlightened, he is less.

Thanks

Answer
Dear Vineet,

The sign of enlightenment is that one will have no doubts about the unreality of the world and the reality of the Ultimate Principle, also called God. There are no degrees in enlightenment. The process of removing the impurities of the mind has different gradations, one is more pure, the other is less, but enlightenment has no gradations. You are either enlightened or you are not enlightened.

With best wishes,
Swami Narasimhananda
