The intellect is the discriminator, which makes it possible for us to 
make decisions -- buddhi (intellect) throws light on the mind to make 
decisions possible (and thank God, it enables Prez Bush to say "I am 
the decider").

I believe that MMY has said that the only required understanding to 
gain CC is to understand "witnessing" (the feeling that grows when 
increasing awareness makes one feel that one is looking at the body 
from a distance) -- otherwise, one would feel reluctant to go on 
meditating, without the intellectual understanding of an experience 
that could seem strange. 

To gain Brahman Consciousness, I believe that MMY has said that 
reading the Brahma Sutras http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brahma_Sutras 
helps to culture the gaining of BC. Although somebody at any level of 
consciousness might find some value in reading the Brahma Sutras, MMY 
says that they have no relative meaning (although they may be found 
to have some relative value) -- the Brahma Sutras explication of the 
absolute value of life helps those in God Consciousness to enter the 
seventh state of consciousness, BC.
