Authenticity is in our ability to impart the wisdom that we ourselves have achieved.  There is only one sutra for achieving wisdom i.e. to understand the universal order of existence, understand nyaya, and understand human being.  I am among those who have become successful in understanding these and achieving wisdom.  Authenticity is the result of anubhav.  What is anubhav?  If we only believe (have words) but don’t know then we don’t get fulfilment.  If we know, but can’t believe (which is the ability to articulate what we know) then also we don’t get fulfilment.   It is when we become fulfilled in both knowing and believing that we get fulfilment in the course of our living – i.e. recognizing and responding. We humans did not get fulfilment in our living thus far because we had neither known existence nor believed in existence.  What is the point of fulfilment of self?  As we practice living with direct perception of reality in self, it results in bodh (in buddhi), and one discovers the point of fulfilment (anubhav) and authenticity in self.
