Spiritual Experience

(n)     It is, thus, not on any speculative basis, but on basis of the claims of verifiable and permanently abiding realisation of the supramental truth-consciousness that one confidently provides a comprehensive account of spirituality and various domains of spiritual experience which, if denied dogmatically and without undertaking the strenuous journey of enquiry, that justifies to us in admission of the domain of spirituality and in consequences for spiritual education.

Critical rationality is perfectly justified in questioning every domain of experience unless that domain of experience is not merely that of sporadic and occasional visitation of subjective experience, liable to be deceptive and incapable of being corrected by means of methodical repetitive processes of verification. Critical rationality is again justified in not accepting any version of truth claims which collide among themselves, and which do not point to a realm of experiences that are comprehensive and which harmonises conflicting truth claims in terms of verifiable abiding states of experience, and which can, again, be accessible to a methodical application of tested methods. Finally, critical rationality is fully justified in insisting on the autonomy of the individual and freedom for full range of enquiry as a result of which one can arrive at an acceptable ground for a claim that points to the possibility and the actuality of self-luminous and indubitable comprehensive experience.
