Advanced in Knowledge - an essential subject
Material enjoyment is indeed the cause of all unhappiness; however, one cannot give it up unless one personally experiences the suffering. Therefore, one should be allowed to remain in so-called material enjoyment while simultaneously advancing in knowledge to experience the misery of this false material happiness. Without help from others, one will find material enjoyment detestable. Those whose minds are changed by others do not become as renounced as those who have personal experience.
