A wise man once said, "Tell me about your mystics and I will tell you how wise your people are ... "
Well, this is the same wise (wo)man writing the rest of the post ! But really, of all the achievements of a people it's not the technological, architectural, social, or cultural achievements that sing true praise of them but how many mystics lived among them and how well they treated them.
For all other achievements are of no real significance if their relationship with God is not intimate ... Which is why we all should be proud to be Indian !
I am interested these days in the religion of Judaism. I would love to know what their mystics were like ...
