An Insight into Paramahansa Yogananda's Poem on Samadhi In the realms of spirituality, it is commonly asserted that mere knowledge, without experience and insight, cannot lead one to personal realization. However, within recognized philosophical systems, many of the Yogis’ mystical experiences are denied the necessary ontological status due to such experiences being subjective in nature.

Nevertheless, an experience such as Samadhi is regarded with certain degree of interest across all the varied Indian philosophical schools.
