All those that lead to a better understanding of the higher nature with
relation to the lower nature, and the unity of all life -- with an emphasis
on compassion and brotherhood as a way to avoid bad karma and continued
suffering. (But, then, that depends on what one considers as "enlightenment"
-- as a so called "enlightened" Adept of the "left hand path" could very well
decide to ignore these teachings.) I suggested them, however, as a help
toward Self realization -- since I can only speak from a "theosophist's"
point of view for what I believe to be the preferred path of the Bodhisattva.
