A team of mountain climbers were scaling Mount Everest and they camped below the summit. Another team was returning from the top and saw them camped there. "Why are you camped?" they wanted to know.

"We are waiting for our map," they replied. "We forgot our map at the base camp and we have sent a sherpa back to retrieve it. So we are waiting."

"But from here you do not need a map!" the returning team replied. "There are no avalanches, no problems. From here, go straight to the top! No map is necessary. So drop all your maps and baggage. Go directly to the summit from here."

—From Wake Up and Roar

It's good to see that Mr Poonja has read Conze's translation of the Diamond Sutra. "The Absolute Exalts A Holy Person" is a direct quote. Perhaps there should have been some attribution.
