In the deeper Himalayas, Rishikesh area, that's the famous place for pilgrims also. Many yogis went there, many Master went there to meditate in the old times until now. So, people believer that it is a very auspicious spiritual region. I felt very happy there, very, very happy. Just as every other yogi, Master Mahavira left and went to another village. It's also good like that because otherwise, if He kept staying there and eating from the same people all the time, maybe they couldn't afford to keep feeding Him. Also, to sow more affinity with different people. That's a tradition of monks. Enlightenment is a higher level of consciousness. Intellect is just a common element of the mind, of the brain, so that you can learn things in the world. It doesn't help you to be enlightened, but it could, it could. If you use the intellect to understand the teachings of the Master, then you will have no doubt. You will be more diligent in your spiritual practice and also be enlightened easier, and that's also possible like that. But intellect alone will not give you enlightenment. No matter how much knowledge you amass in this world, it helps you nothing. It just crowds your brain more and makes you more confused, more maybe arrogant, and more ignorant in spiritual matters, I mean, in the spiritual domain.
