Questioner: What is the meaning “Intelligent Spirituality”?
Acharya Prashant: Actually, one of the words is redundant.
You could just say, ‘Spirituality’ or you could just say, ‘Intelligence’.
But they both have to be put together for a double effect because a lot that is being touted around as spirituality these days is just stupid.
So, as a negation of that, the phrase intelligent spirituality is used; only in the context of stupid spirituality.
Only in the context of stupid spirituality, is the expression INTELLIGENT SPIRITUALITY is used. Otherwise, intelligence and spirituality are one. You can remove one of those two words and the same effect will be there; you need not use two words.
