A Quote by Robert A. Thurman on robert thurman, buddhism, greed, commercialism, militarism, nonviolence, compassion, contentment, insight, and creativity

Commercial interests with their advertising industry do not want people to develop contentment and less greed.  Military interests in economic, political, ethnic or nationalist guises, do not want people to develop more tolerance, nonviolence and compassion.  And ruling groups in general, in whatever sort of hierarchy do not want the ruled to become too insightful, too independent, too creative on their own, as the danger is that they will become insubordinate, rebellious, and unproductive in their alloted tasks.

A Quote by Robert A. Thurman on enlightenment, all that is, knowledge, suffering, and euphoria

To become enlightened is not just to slip into some disconnected euphoria, an oceanic feeling of mystic oneness apart from ordinary reality. It is not even to come up with a solution, a sort of formula to control realtity. Rather, it is an experience of release from all compulsions and sufferings, combined with a precise awareness of any relavent subject of knowledge. Having attained enlightenment one knows everything that matters, and the precise nature of all that is.
