Enlightenment is human’s emergence from self-imposed immaturity.
Immaturity is the inability to use one’s understanding without guidance from another.
“ Have courage to use Your Own Understanding!”–that is the Motto of Enlightenment.
Immanuel Kant (1724-1804)
Most influential philosopher Western Immanuel Kant contributions to metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, and aesthetics have had a profound impact on almost every philosophical movement that followed him…… and even today .
ram’s footnote :-
Wine matures in barrels but Mind immatures in barrels .
These barrels are Barrels of Ego , Knowledge , Power , Nationality , Race , Philosophies , Science , Spirituality, Wisdom and Wealth…….
“ Have courage to use your own understanding!”….. let our own Basic Nature becomes Guru and Guide .
” Love All” is our Basic Nature and True Maturity of Mind
Enlightenment 360º is the True Maturity of Mind .

Sapere aude is the Latin phrase meaning “Dare to know”; and also is loosely translated as “Dare to be wise”, or even more loosely as “Dare to think for yourself!” Originally used in the First Book of Letters (20 BCE), by the Roman poet Horace, the phrase Sapere aude became associated with the Age of Enlightenment .
