Russell’s criticism of insight, although not particularly aimed at Hinduism, could certainly be applied to the Hindu notion of insight. What are your thoughts on this criticism? Do you believe it undermines mystical insight to some extent?

The work shows Russell’s commitment to logical positivism and mathematical truths. This direction is considered the opposite of empiricism and sensory perception of the world, as in Hinduism. Both theories have a right to exist and may overlap in the context of the research. Logic is a tool for organizing knowledge, but it cannot assert the truth of organizing the world. The spiritual direction of Hinduism cannot be criticized out of personal skepticism.
