    An insightful article on female enlightened master Rajini Menon attaining enlightenment just through adhering to virtuous conduct and behavior.


    If you do right, irrespective of what the other does, it will slow down the mind. - Rajini Menon

    Interestingly, a similar teaching of Swami Satchidananda comes to mind in this regard...

    “When even one virtue becomes our nature, the mind becomes clean and tranquil. Then there is no need to practice meditation; we will automatically be meditating always.” - Swami Satchidananda

    I would say this showcases the importance of virtues and virtuous or ethical conduct as taught in Hinduism, and the important role our own parents, teachers and elders play in inculcating values in ourselves and in society.

    Here is an interesting conversation between the female enlightened sage Anandamayi Ma and a disciple...

    Question: Suppose an atheist lives an ethical and righteous life. Is he on a lower level than a faithful devotee?

    Ma Anandamayi : An ethical life purifies the mind. Even though one may have no faith in God, if one believes in some Superior Power or pursues a high ideal, this also will serve one's purpose. By living an ethical life, one progresses towards the realization of the Divine.

    Through this Ma Anandamayi too, like Rajini Menon, states that an ethical and virtuous life, is a spiritual exercise in itself and is potent enough to bring about enlightenment on its own.
