Abhinavagupta

“Just as an object appears directly to one whose eyes are open without the intervention of mental cogitation, so for some, does SHIVA’s nature.”

“The yogi should abide firmly fixed in his own nature by the power of expanding awareness … relishing the objects of sense that spontaneously appear before him.”

“The Power that resides in the Heart of Awareness is Freedom itself.”

“A Yogi can enter another person’s body without leaving his own. The Guru’s consciousness is activated in the disciple’s consciousness … thus initiation that bestows liberation is given.
So gracious is he that, by transferring his own nature to those whose awareness is pure, they become one with him at his gaze.”

“Listen: neither accepting nor rejecting anything but just sharing joyfully in everything, being as you are.”

“With one’s intent inside while looking outside, eyes neither opening or closing – this is Bhaivara’s Mudra kept secret in all the Tantras.

In the two conditions, the inner and the outer…he whose ultimate intent is internal and whose vision is directed outward attains the highest realisation.”

“Immersing himself in the supreme reality, clearly aware that awareness is in all things, the Yogi’s awareness vibrates. This throbbing pulsation is the Great Pervasion.”

One must concentrate the mind on Him, the only all-blissful Absolute Truth. Otherwise one will be misled and will cause his own degradation.

One may very well do one's work in a perfectly resigned way, surrendering oneself wholly and unconditionally to the Divine. Then there comes a time when all work becomes worship. And work again becomes worship when we are in that prayerful mood of self-surrender. It is' possible to combine both, activity and self-surrender, doing what we have got to do in perfect self-forgetfulness.

If you don't find God, you are not making enough effort in your meditation. The saints say that if you coax God earnestly enough, you can see Him. But you have to do it all yourself.

Just as in this universe there are countless beings of various species , in other universes , too , there are similar beings , with different bodies suited to those universes .

"Physicians should carry on their work of healing through God's laws as applied to matter," Sri Yukteswar said. But he extolled the superiority of mental therapy, and often repeated: "Wisdom is the greatest cleanser."

38. Do not practise meditation by fixing the mind on the
six adhara chakras, the ones that are up or down or in the
middle, or anywhere else. Giving up all such meditations,
make the mind always devoid of any support (either inside or
outside).

Just as juice, jaggery and sugar are only different states of the same thing, namely sugarcane, so do all beings abide in the supreme Lord in different states or forms.


In the kindled light of the Self, stirred up by the wind of contemplation, the imaginations of the aspirant are sacrificed and he becomes one with that light.


The Supreme Lord seems still when the various elements are still, glad when they are glad, gloomy when they are gloomy, but truly he is not so.


When by virtue of the store of gems of supreme wisdom, collected in the treasure house of the mystic heart, the state of Maheshwara is reached; one realizes ‘I am in all. Hence, what misfortunes can befall, and by whom?’

Nothing is as mischievous as the mind. It raises so many doubts and disbeliefs! As one re­peats the name of God, the desire for honour and fame departs and the mind becomes pure.

He who has eradicated ignorance totally and in whom every form of conditioning has ceased is a liberated sage : though he seems to be aware of this dream known as world-appearance , in reality he does not see it as the world .

Go beyond everything. Don't
collect anything. A king does not need to go shopping in his own kingdom.Nor does he beg.
Remember, you are the Inner reality-pure awareness only. All that arises are appearances
in consciousness. Don't bother with all that. Rest only as the awareness.
This is the secret.

37. When one adopts the practice (sadhana ) by means of
which one's mind, which is restless like the wind, is made
still perpetually, then the purpose of taking birth as a human
being is fulfilled. That is also the mark of a true scholar.

Surrender everything at His feet and give Him the general power of attorney. Let Him do what He considers best for you. If you place your responsibility on a great man, he will never do you any harm. Of course, spiritual practice is needed.

Through the power that comes from real 'inner' looking...stale emotions and stale thinking are being burnt and there is a changing over from being a person to being presence...this feeling of being lost is just the feeling of being lost from your usual context of being...a human being does not move into this deeper place without the call and support of Grace...The beingness is pulling the personality into itself, and it is a much more expansive state..."

36. Meditate on the peerless Self which pervades all the
various forms, yet remains without any blemish (being
unaffected by them), just as ether, pervading all the creations
made up of the five elements, remains unsullied at the time of
their dissolution.

| SECTION IV | CHAPTER 42

Just as a fruit undergoes various changes in size , colour , etc , as it matures , the same consciousness undergoes these apparent changes as the ignorance grows deeper and denser .

The foolish person then abandons all right thinking or enquiry into the truth and voluntarily embraces ignorance as bliss .

Caught in its own trap of various activities , and of identification of oneself as their doer , he undergoes endless suffering which is self-imposed and self-willed .
