No doubt there is no greater purifier than knowledge. But if you get stuck in knowledge only at an intellectual, or literal manner rather than assimilating it deep within, then the same knowledge becomes a source of bondage rather than liberation.

There are three different types of knowledge:
  1. Indriya-janya Jnana: knowledge which is received from the senses.
  2. Buddhi-janya Jnana: knowledge that comes through the intellect.
  3. A kind of knowledge that is more subtle and deep, and is beyond the intellect.
Being stuck at the lower levels of knowledge can become a bondage or obstacle in rising to the higher and more subtle knowledge.
