''You don’t know me. The beauty is, even I don’t know me. That is why I am constantly excited to know me more and more. I am constantly able to entertain myself, enjoy myself. I am constantly able to entertain myself and be excited about me, because I am constantly new to me, understand? Live Advaita; you will be constantly new to you, you will be constantly excited about you, you will be constantly enjoying you, you will be constantly entertaining you, you will be constantly enlightening you.'

'What drives you from inside, that makes you royal. Of course, the nine years, the life I lived begging, sleeping under the trees, I never felt in that whole nine years that I did not have something. I am very clear! There are many people who lived around me during that period, or when this organization was not around me, they are all witness. Never that experience of royal-ness was added to me by any of this organizational structure, or never it was missing when this organization was not there.' -

It is by the grace of the guru that heavenly consciousness unfolds
to the initiated disciple, revealing the light of the omniscient spiritual eye, symbolized by the dove—through this medium one ascends from the body to Spirit through the Holy Ghost, the Christ Consciousness "only begotten Son," and Cosmic Consciousness, or God the Father….

It is the mental attitude of faith and devotion in which one receives
a ceremonial baptism—whether by immersion or the modified symbolic way of sprinkling water on the head—that determines the blessings received; and it is the continuity of right thought and action that assures the lasting benefit. THE INITIATE THEREAFTER SHOULD REGULARLY BAPTIZE THE SELF WITH SPIRIT BY IMMERSION OF THE CONSCIOUSNESS IN THE WISDOM, MAGNETISM, AND SPIRITUAL RADIATION OF THE HOLY GHOST IN MEDITATION.

Only when one severs the very root of the mind with the weapon of non-conceptualization, can one reach the Absolute Brahman which is omnipresent, supreme peace.

First destroy the mental conditioning by renouncing cravings; and then remove from your mind even the concept of bondage and liberation. Be totally free of conditioning.

It is because God wants you that I am here with you, calling you to come Home, where my Beloved is, where Krishna and Christ, and Babaji, Lahiri Mahasaya, Sri Yukteswarji, and the other saints are. "Come," the Lord is saying, "they are all rejoicing in Me. No worldly joys - the taste of food, the beauty of flowers, the passing pleasure of earthly love - can compare with the divine joys of My home." There is only one Reality. It is He. Forget everything else.

The significance of 108

According to the Surya Siddhanta, an ancient Indian astronomical work, the sunlight moves at a speed of 2,202 yojanas in 0.5 nimisha. One yojana is nine miles. 2,202 yojanas amount to 19,818 miles. One nimisha is equal to 16/75 of a second. Half a nimisha amounts to 8/75 of a second, which is 0.106666 seconds. A speed of 19,818 miles in 0.10666 seconds equals 185,793 miles per second. This is approximately in line with the modern calculations, according to which the speed of light is 186,282 miles per second. Modern science has arrived at this number with great difficulty and all kinds of instruments, while a few thousand years ago, they got this number by simple observation of how the human system and the solar system function together.

The distances between the Sun and the Earth, the distances between the Moon and the Earth, the way the planet rotates and the impact it has – all these things have been looked at with great care. The diameter of the Sun multiplied by 108 equals the distance between Sun and Earth, and the diameter of the Moon multiplied by 108 equals the distance between Earth and Moon. The diameter of the Sun is 108 times the diameter of the Earth. That is why we have 108 beads in a mala.

I could go on with all kinds of fabulous figures, but the most important thing is the deep connection between the making of time and the making of the human body. You know, the planet is approximately round and it has a slightly tilted orbit. As it travels, as it spins, it forms a circle. Today we know it takes 25,920 years to complete this cycle. This tilt mainly happens because of the gravitational pull of the moon over the earth. And that many years are called one cycle of yugas[1]. Each of these cycles has eight yugas.
Earth and man

Back to one cycle of axial procession – 25,920 divided by 60 (which is also the number of heart beats per minute if you are healthy) – comes to 432. Four hundred thirty two is a number that comes up in various cultures – the Norse culture, the ancient Jewish culture, the Egyptian culture, the Mesopotamian culture, and very much in the Indian culture here. Why 432? If you are in good health and in good condition, your heart beats about 60 times per minute, which is 3600 per hour, and 3600 x 24 equals 86,400 heartbeats per day. If you divide 864 by 2, again you have 432.

If you are healthy, you take about 15 breaths per minute. If you have done lots of sadhana, it could be only 12. 15 breaths per minute means 900 breaths per hour and 21,600 per day. 216 multiplied by 2 becomes 432 again. If you take the circumference of the earth – there is something called a nautical mile which is the real mile in the sense that it has something to do with the way the planet is. The other units of measurement were created for ease of calculation.

You know there are 360° in a circle. Likewise, there are 360° upon the planet, and each degree is divided into 60 minutes. One of these minutes accounts for one nautical mile. That means the circumference of the earth at the equator is 21,600 nautical miles – that is also how many breaths you take per day. That means the planet is spinning on time and you are doing well. If the planet was not spinning on time, it would be no good at all for us. If you are not in tune with it, it is also no good for you.

This is to show you time is not a concept that we invented – time is deep-rooted in the system, in the very way we are made. When we go into Mahabharat, there is so much talk about the yugas and how they function. I want you to look at the impact of time in human life from a different context. This is not something that someone thought up – this is a phenomenal and profound science. Yoga has always been deeply involved with this. It is just that we don’t believe in propounding theories about it. By practice, we try to attune the body to the times and spaces of creation, because without being in tune with them, you do not get very far. If you are not riding the time, you will live a mediocre life – probably a suffering life. Only if you are riding the time, you will live an extraordinary life, which is what a human being and the human brain are designed for.

The numbers in brief:

There are 2202 yojanas in 0.5 nimisha.
1 yojana = 9 miles
1 nimisha = seconds
2202 yojana in 0.5 nimisha = 2202 x 9 miles in 0.5 x (16/75) seconds
= 19,818 miles in 0.10666 seconds
= 185,793 miles/second

It is in time that we exist. It is in time that we were born. It is in time that we will die. If one understands the significance of time, the laws of time, the dharma of time and is in tune with the dharma of time, one is not just a jaya – one is a vijaya. One makes it here and one makes it elsewhere. Conversely, one who is not in tune with the dharma of time will get crushed and crumbled by the process of life. Life is just a play of time. Understanding this, the ancient sages, seers, and yogis of this region looked at time with enormous attention

Time – the relentless time – elates and bludgeons, nurtures and gnashes, rises and falls. Time gives respite to no one. A worm or a bird, the hunted or the hunter, the ruled or the ruler, the slave or the emperor, beautiful bodies and wondrous palaces, prime of fame and angst of shame – everything goes back to nothingness, to dust and ashes.

" Man's Eternal Quest "

You are your own enemy and you don't know it. You don't learn to sit quietly. You don't learn to give time to God. And you are impatient and expect to attain heaven all at once. You cannot get it by reading books or by listening to sermons or by doing charitable works. You can get it only by giving your time to Him in deep meditation.

В великой стране Та-Кеми, что находилась на востоке от Атлани и на юге от Великой Венеи проживали многочисленные племена с кожей цвета Мрака и племена с кожей цвета Заходящего Солнца.

Среди этих племён существовали две могущественные касты Жрецов, и имели они три Духовные Учения, которые им дали х’Арийцы, пришедшие из страны Антов.
……………………………………..
Одно Духовное Учение — внешнее, не представляющее тайны, данное народам Та-Кеми Жрецами начальной касты и не признававшееся самими Жрецами истинной Верой, гласило, что Душа каждого человека после смерти переселяется в тело человека той или иной касты, ино-гда великолепного Вождя или даже Верховного Жреца.
………………………………………
Когда высока и достойна была жизнь умершего человека. А также в тело животного, насекомого или даже растения, когда недостойна была прожита человеком его собственная жизнь. Но сами Жрецы данной касты исповедывали другое Духовное Учение.
………………………………………
Они искренне думали и верили, что переселение человеческих Душ совершается не только на нашей Мидгард-Земле, но что Души умерших людей уходят и на другие Земли нашей Вселенной, где воплощаются в тела людей или животных иных Миров, в зависимости от их поступков в Явной жизни на Мирград-Земле. И этот закон они называли Кармой, в честь Великой Богини Карны, которая следит за соблюдением Закона Духовного Совершенства.
……………………………………..
Однако среди Жрецов второй касты была группа ещё более высоко посвящённых, мало кому из Жрецов низших каст известная, и имела она другое Духовное Учение, сильно отличавшиеся от предыдущих.

Гласило это Духовное Учение, что наш окружающий Явный Мир, Мир жёлтых Звёзд и Солнечных Систем, только песчинка в Безконечной Вселенной. Что существуют Звёзды и Солнца белые, голубые, лиловые, розовые, зелёные, Звёзды и Солнца цветов, нами невиданных, нашими чувствами не постигаемых. И бесконечно велико их число, безгранично их разнооб-разие, безконечны Пространства их разделяющие.
………………………………………
И учили эти Многомудрые Жрецы, что в нашей Вселенной есть Золотой Путь Духовного Восхождения, ведущий вверх и именуемый — Свага, по которому расположены Гармоничные Миры...

Speech is of the society.
Words are of the mind.
Sounds are of nature.
The soundless is of the beyond.

Thus if one gets identified by one's own speech, that one will belong to the society.
If one gets identified with one's words, that one will belong to the mind.
If one gets identified with one's sounds, that one will belong to nature.

If one dissolves in the soundless silence,
then to that one alone the realms of the beyond will yeild - to that one alone.

'Do not freeze yourself. Do not think you have grown up, now nothing more can be done, transformation is not possible. NO. Every day the possibility for you to build a new personality, new body, new mind, new being is available, open. That availability is what I call ‘life’. Using that availability and making Advaitha as a strategy, building a new body, new mind, new personality, new words, new thoughts, new actions, is what I call ‘Living Advaitha’. Living Advaitha. Living Advaitha.'

All of us are completely connected in the space of oneness. I am not saying that all of us are one. All of us are in the space of oneness. If you see goodness outside you are in the space of completion inside. If you see bad things outside, you need to complete inside. Advaita is the fact on which you need to strategize your life. Not something to be debated. Let every word you utter, every action you do be completely based on Advaita. Living Advaita means, your self-drive, your inspiration, your energy, your experience, your intelligence - everything - operates from Advaita. From the truth, the fact and the sacred secret of oneness.

I believe the Bible, The Koran, and the Zend-Avesta* to be as divinely inspired as the Vedas. I Believe in the institution of Gurus, but in this age millions must go without a Guru, because it is a rare thing to find a combination of perfect purity and perfect learning. But one need not despair of ever knowing the truth of one's religion, because the fundamentals of Hinduism as of every great religion are unchangeable, and easily understood.
I believe like every Hindu in God and His Oneness, in rebirth and salvation... I can no more describe my feeling for Hinduism than for my own wife. She moves me as no other woman in the world can. Not that she has no faults; I daresay she has many more than I see myself. But the feeling of an indissoluble bond is there. Even so I feel for and about Hinduism with all its faults and limitations. Nothing delights me so much as the music of the 'Gita', or the 'Ramayana' by Tulsidas. When I fancied I was taking my last breath, the 'Gita' was my solace.
Hinduism is not an exclusive religion. In it there is room for the worship of all the prophets of the world. It is not a missionary religion in the ordinary sense of the term. It has no doubt absorbed many tribes in its fold, but this absorption has been of an evolutionary, imperceptible character. Hinduism tells each man to worship God according to his own faith or 'Dharma', and so lives at peace with all religions.

I have found that life persists in the midst of destruction. Therefore there must be a higher law than that of destruction. Only under that law would well-ordered society be intelligible and life worth living.
If that is the law of life we must work it out in daily existence. Whenever there are wars, whenever we are confronted with an opponent, conquer by love. I have found that the certain law of love has answered in my own life as the law of destruction has never done.
In India we have had an ocular demonstration of the operation of this law on the widest scale possible. I don't claim that nonviolence has penetrated the 360,000,000 people in India, but I do claim it has penetrated deeper than any other doctrine in an incredibly short time.
It takes a fairly strenuous course of training to attain a mental state f nonviolence. It is a disciplined life, like the life of a soldier. The perfect state is reached only when the mind, body, and speech are in proper coordination. Every problem would lend itself to solution if we determined to make the law of truth and nonviolence the law of life.
Just as a scientist will work wonders out of various applications of the laws of nature, a man who applies the laws of love with scientific precision can work great wonders. Nonviolence is infinitely more wonderful and subtle than forces of nature like, for instance, electricity. The law of love is a far greater science than any modern science.

Mahatma's wife, Kasturabai wrote the following trubute to her husband:

"I thank you for having had the privillege of being your lifelong companion and helpmate. I thank you for the most perfect marriage in the world, based on 'brahmacharya' (self-control) and not on sex. I thank you for having considered me your equal in your life work for India. I thank you for not being one of those husbands who spend their time in gambling, racing, women, wine, and song, tiring of their wives and children as the little boy quickly tires of his childhood toys. How thankful I am that you were not one of those husbands who devote their time to growing rich on the exploitation of the labor of others.
How thankful I am that you put God and country before bribes, that you had the courage of your convictions and a complete and implicit faith in God. How thankful I am for a husband that put God and his country before me. I am grateful to you for your tolerance of me and my shortcomings of youth, when I grumbled and rebelled against the change you made in our mode of living, from so much to so little.
As a young child, I lived in your parents home; your mother was a great and good woman; she trained me, taught me how to be a brave, courageous wife and how to keep the love and respect of her son, my future husband. As the years passed and you became India's most beloved leader, I had none of the fears that best the wife who may be cast aside when her husband has climbed the ladder of success, as so often happens in other countries. I know that death would still find us husband and wife.

I call myself a nationalist, but my nationalism is as broad as the universe. It includes in its sweep all nations of the earth. My nationalism includes the well-being of the whole world. I do not want my India to rise on the ashes of other nations. I do not want India to exploit a single human being. I want India to be strong in order that she can infect the other nations also with her strenght. Not so with a single nation in Europe today; they do not give strength to others.
President Willson mentioned his beautiful fourteen points, but said: "After all, if this endeavor of ours to arrive at peace fails, we have our armaments to fall back upon." I want to reverse that position, and I say: "Our armaments have failed already. Let us now be in search of something new; let us try the force of love and God which is truth." When we have got that, we shall want nothing else.

Your mind, instead of asking you shelter, it makes you believe you are that, and with that stupidity you are bound, and your whole life you go on trying to protect that without getting violated, and you forget that it has violated you. And, if your body and mind ask you, ‘I am your servant. Please protect me so that nobody should violate me.’, and you give abhaya (refuge), ‘Yes, I will give you abhaya. I will protect you without being violated.’, at least it is the right context.'

The unreal (material existence) seems as real, and the sober reality (of spiritual essence) appears as a non-entity in nature. Therefore give up your reliance upon this deceitful world, and preserve the equanimity of your mind under all circumstances.

You gain a certain good by getting rid of this world; and that is your riddance from the manifold evils and misfortunes, which are the unavoidable accompaniments in this life.

You obtain a certain gain of your salvation, by your resignation of the world, which you can never earn by your attachment to it. Therefore strive for your liberation by purging your mind from its attachments to the world.
