To know Dharma is to know the root cause of anything, and to know that is wisdom. Attachment towards the Source is devotion, and wisdom is in proportion to the degree of devotion. Devotion and wisdom will be as much as is gained through that attachment. As much as you are attached to a subject, so much wisdom do you have about that subject. The purpose of life is to drive away ‘want’ completely, and that is possible only by knowing the Cause. Exhausted in want, the mind seeks Dharma or the Supreme Being; otherwise not. “What will remove ‘want’, and how? From this thought the question of the Supreme Being arises at last. What upholds the existence of an object is Dharma. So long as that remains unknown, nothing is known exactly.
