The aspirant should also remember that enlightenment comes from within. In order to find it, the aspirant must become purified from vices and fetters. The aspirant must also recognize what enlightenment is, and be able to apply the teachings in his or her life. Many think that they understand the philosophy, but when tested, give into indulgences such as food or sex, or become angry.
