Not knowing suffering,
Not knowing the origin of suffering,
Not knowing the cessation of suffering,
Not knowing the path leading to... continue...

When you get enlightened most people are talking like zombies. Those that were making sense to you suddenly like zombies talking.

vertical line When you get enlightened you can talk. If you are not yet enlightened don't talk.

If you can see true reality you can talk about it. But if you can't see reality yet you talk about reality that would just adding to the mess... lol

vertical line In the Sutras only the Buddha and Subhuti were talking because they were enlightened. But the others did not talk but maybe they just listened.

in my current understanding , if one reached into an "enlighterned" condition , one will "stop thinking or talking" naturally not resulted by desire , or practice or plan .......
