Seeking is based on some reason, understanding is without any. Seeking is with an effort and purpose, understanding is spontaneous and effortless. Understanding is absent in seeking, while the seeker is absent in understanding. Seeking consists of a searcher, understanding denies the very searcher. Seeking has an aim, understanding is itself aim-less. Seeking is supported by listening, reading, or contemplating, while understanding is self-sustaining. Fear of forgetting gathered knowledge prevails in seeking. While the thought of having understood is absent in understanding. Seeking is an ever-changing state, while understanding is a stateless state. We all start as seekers on this journey of life, seeking happiness and we, one day, understand that our lives are nothing but an expression of that happiness. — Satish Daryanani
