In some religions there is the concept of "enlightenment".

In a broader sense, the term "enlightenment" is treated differently.
By what signs can you understand that man is enlightened
An enlightened person is a person whoLives in harmony with the outside world, keeping calm and spiritual purity in any situation. Many people consider such people as freaks and even mentally abnormal, although this is far from the case.
Such people can be found anywhere: And in a megacity, and in a small provincial town. Initially, it is not easy to recognize them, because they behave quietly, modestly, without drawing attention to themselves. But in a changed environment, when the true human nature unwittingly manifests, the enlightened person will not go unnoticed.
