Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, and hate.. leads to suffering.

Train yourself to let go.. Of everything you fear to lose.

I can never be tired of you.
I can only be tired of you while you indulge the notion of being a person.
Sometimes I get impatient with you.
Why are you still wallowing in this mess?
Come out of this.
As soon as you come out then all the rubbish begins to fall away fast.
First you go uphill with your ego, and then you start going downhill and everything is coming out. First, building up, building up, more and more stuff… getting stuffed, constipated with concepts… and then? BIG laxative, full diarrhoea. Then freedom. Every thought is coming out. You are so happy, so light. You don’t know what to do with yourself. You are weightless, completely weightless.
Now let it be your quiet understanding and live from that place.

The nothing I'm referring to is, you don't lose your individuality, your individuality expands and you become as omnipresence.

Now you may ask the question, "How can everybody's individuality expand the same way? Then there'll be trillions of individualities?" No! There's only one individuality and that one is the Self. And that one is you. You are the ultimate Reality.

But right now with your finite mind, it's difficult to comprehend that. This is why you have to understand that you are not your body-mind phenomena. As soon as you get rid of the body-mind concept, you become free.

Therefore you work on yourself. The spiritual sadhana that you do, is simply to awaken. To awaken to your Self, to the one Reality. In the one Reality, you can have a body or not have a body, it makes no difference. But even if you have a body, you really don't have a body. The body only appears to the Ajnani, the person who has not realized Truth. It appears as if the Jnani has a body. It appears as if the Jnani is doing something. But the Jnani does nothing. The Jnani is immersed in consciousness and has become the Self, the total Reality, pure intelligence, absolute awareness, sat-chit-ananda.

- Robert Adams Satsangs: The Collected Works, Ts 22

Внимательно рассмотрите свое «я»:
У него нет ни цвета, ни формы.
Попробуй толкнуть — не шелохнется.
Попробуй удержать — не остановится.
Глядя на «я», не увидишь его,
А захочешь схватить — не поймаешь.

Whatever is born out of time,
you need not be concerned about.
Let life take care of that. Let life take care of life.
Keep quiet and let your mind rest inside your heart.
Don't worry. Right now belongs only to now.
There are no demands, requirements or conditions.
You are simply here. As you confirm this
and pay attention to this simple fact,
the whole world becomes a harmony
right in front of you.

How can anything in form be trusted
when no form is stable?
By grace alone it has been seen
that only the formless is stable.
All else belongs to the dream
of the manifest consciousness.

NISARGADATTA’S VERSION OF RAMAYANA

There were many occasions when Maharaj demonstrated to me his unique, natural, inborn genius. I want to mention one of them. After an inspiring talk by Maharaj, a middle aged affluent looking American went up to Maharaj and offered $ 1000/- in cash as his offering. Maharaj smiled but politely refused to accept it. The American pleaded, “Maharaj! Please accept it! For the wisdom I received from you today I can’t but pay my homage. I am a wealthy man and to me these are but peanuts. Kindly do not decline.”

Maharaj answered, “I know, I know! You Americans are very rich and very prosperous. I will tell you an ancient story. It is from the epic, Ramayana.

Lord Rama’s wife Sita was abducted by the demon, Ravana. Rama sought the help of the monkey king, Sugriva. Their leader, Hanuman, guided the monkeys to recognize the greatness of Lord Rama. All of them pledged their support to Rama. In due course, Lord Rama vanquished Ravana and was triumphantly returning to his capital Ayodhya in India along with his rescued wife Sita. The monkeys also wanted to accompany them to Ayodhya as they were eager to witness the coronation ceremony of Lord Rama. When they reached Ayodhya, the monkeys as was their wont made an enormous commotion. The coronation was successfully conducted. The next day, early in the morning, Lord Rama asked Hanuman, “Why is there such silence and stillness? What happened to all your clan?”

Hanuman replied, “My Lord! When they pledged support to you, they also took a severe vow that they would not eat or sleep till you are crowned as King of Ayodhya. Yesterday, they witnessed the coronation. Their vow completed, they ate to their hearts’ content. They felt so exhausted from lack of sleep that they are now fast asleep.” Lord Rama was very moved by the sacrifice the monkeys had made of giving up their pleasures of food and sleep.

Maharaj suddenly stopped his narration and said, “Till now the original story. Now, I am going to add my own version.”

“So, Lord Rama gave a boon to all the monkeys: “All the monkeys deserve great pleasure and prosperity. So, may they all be reborn as ‘humans’ in America, where they will enjoy all this in plenty!”

Maharaj turned to the American and the audience and added, “I know, you Americans revel in plenty and prosperity and are generous. You enjoy pleasures. Yet, I can’t accept your money. I am a grihastha [house-holder]. In our Hindu dharma, only brahmacharis [bachelors] and sannyasis [renunciates] are permitted to accept alms and donations. Grihasthas [active, house-holders] and vanaprasthas [retired, house-holders] are not permitted.”

Noticing the disappointment in the face of the American, Maharaj consolingly said, “You Americans will have material prosperity in great abundance in America, but if you want Lord Rama you will have to come to Bharat. You will have to come to India!”

Q: IS SELF REALISATION IMPORTANT?

NM: Without it you will be consumed by desires and fears, repeating themselves meaninglessly in endless suffering. Most of the people do not know that there can be an end to pain. But once they have heard the good news, obviously going beyond all strife and struggle is the most urgent task that can be. You know that you can be free and now it is up to you. Either you remain forever hungry and thirsty, longing, searching, grabbing, holding, ever losing and sorrowing, or go out whole-heartedly in search of the state of timeless perfection to which nothing can be added, from which nothing -- taken away. In it all desires and fears are absent, not because they were given up, but because they have lost their meaning.

The purpose of all practice is Silence, your real nature. Without Silence you cannot be in peace so strive only for this. Even while active remain in Silence as Silence and be conscious of Silence always. Ramana’s main teaching is Silence and it is this Silence that silently answers all questions and removes all doubts. Train your mind to go to Silence. As Kabir said: “Keep your body, your mind, your intellect, and your prana quiet and wisdom will follow behind you searching for you!”
Be Silent by directing your mind toward its Source. Mind directed toward object of senses is suffering.

The same mind must investigate its Source; the “I” must face its Source. This is true austerity, true practice, and true meditation. Face the Atman, this is Satsang, because this is home, the holy company of the Self. The most holy association is to Be as you are. This is Freedom. This is beyond imagination, very new and very fresh. So just keep Quiet. Do not think. It is you. It is you. Don’t stir a thought, and if a thought comes, let it, don’t waver, don’t doubt your majesty. It is so simple. The one who has It will know that they have done it. When you are quiet it is Beauty, Joy and Stillness. It is effortless.
Effort is to disturb your mind, effort is playing with corpses in the graveyard.
Just contemplate that which is always silence. Go to the Source. Do not believe anything, simply stay quiet and return home and do not rest until you are there. Peace is only available when there is no “I” and you need an “I” to do practice.

Освобождение наступает, когда вы видите форму, но она не портит вас, когда вы слышите звук, но он не портит вас. Глаза, которые не привязываются к форме, - это врата Дзен. Уши, которые не привязываются к звуку, - это врата Дзен. Словом, те, кто постигают существование явления, но не привязываются к нему, освобождаются.

It is necessary by a courage-imbued intellect to gently gently [calmly and gradually] make the mind achieve motionlessness. Great charioteer, fix the mind [your attention] in [or on] ātman [yourself]; do not think even the slightest of anything else at all.

A pandit was visiting Ramana Maharshi and they were discussing the Bhagavad-Gita. A devotee asked if there was one verse that could be remembered always as the essence of the Bhagavad-Gita. Sri Ramana immediately quoted Chapter X, verse 20, "I am the Self, Oh Gudakesa, dwelling in the Heart of every being; I am the beginning and the middle and also the end of all beings."

Never think of yourself as sick.
It’s the wrong diagnosis.
Body may be sick.
Μind can be sick.
But You, the Self, can never be sick.
You can never be harmed or injured.
And here in Satsang,
I am directly showing you this
so that you will come to know it,
not just believe it.
And body can be healed.
Mind can come back to its natural state.
But You can never be sick.
You are the formless and ever-perfect Self.
