What is learned through special revelations?

Some Hindus interpret special revelations as evidence of Brahman engaging with them personally. Others believe Brahman is evident in personal revelation but not directly involved. This is because they understand Brahman to be beyond any human understanding.

Problems for the believer

Special revelations are very difficult for Hindus to explain to non-believers. There is very little evidence for them. They are generally only experienced by one person, which means an appreciation of these revelations is through faith.

Special revelations can also be difficult for Hindus to understand. Some actively follow those they believe have revelations. However, for others who have never experienced a vision it can be quite hard to accept someone else’s vision as being directly from Brahman.
