There are degrees and kinds of solitude. ... I know of no solitude so secure as one guarded by a spring flood; nor do the geese, who have seen more kinds and degrees of aloneness than I have.
A Hindu is instructed to walk the last phase of his stay in single file; he might look within, meditate , and search for the divine . It is only in the solitude aloneness ( sanya ) that an individual might experience Brahman , the immanent , transcendental God . Thus, established in the higher levels of divine consciousness , sanyasin is beyond both adoration and censure .
