What is your opinion on personal enlightenment?
Also, what exactly is personal englightenment? i have to write an essay about it in history!

One should strive to get it.

It is self-knowledge. One has to unfold the mysteries of life. First one should have self-identity. One should enrich ones own knowledge. It requires self-direction. Without physical self-discipline and mental control, one cannot proceed further in such noble ventures. So it requires self-determination, self-reliance, self-analysis. Then only self-development will take place. Because it purifies the body, mind and soul to become eligible for further proceeding in right way. It leads to self-actualization or self-realization. Then one will automatically get enlightenment.
