The only calamity 

Human ignorance, human inability to understand life – the possibilities, limitations and the ultimate nature of     life – this ignorance is the biggest calamity. There is only one calamity – that is ignorance. And there is only one solution – that is enlightenment. The only solution is for one to seek to know the nature of life. And there is no other place for him to know than through himself.
What is termed “self-knowledge” is not something that someone seeks in some Himalayan caves. If you want to handle life well, it is important that you know it well. The better you know it, the better you can handle it. If you know this piece of life absolutely from its origin to its ultimate, there will be no calamity in your life. You will be able to go through every stage and every process of life gracefully.
