Formal expositions of simple truths

All high end philosophical works (like yoga sutras / brahma sutras / gita etc) are merely formal expositions of simple truths like honesty, sincerity, love, compassion, discipline etc. Formal expositions are great to have and know for complex life situations make our simple truths simplistic leading to delusion. Knowledge of formal expositions will guide us then. But, one needs to guard against craving to have scholarly understanding of these works and / or looking up to anyone having it. That simply isnt the point.
