Reject knowledge and be in knowingness only...for whatever you think you know becomes dead within you.

Once you have understood that nothing perceivable...or conceivable can be yourself...you are free of your imaginations...To see everything as imagination, born of desire...is necessary for self-realisation...We miss the real by lack of attention and create the unreal by excess of imagination...

От безбожья до Бога — мгновенье одно!
От нуля до итога — мгновенье одно.
Береги драгоценное это мгновенье
Жизнь — ни мало, ни много — мгновенье одно!

Найдите время, всего один миг, чтобы увидеть, кто вы. Найдите время для своего «Я».
У вас никогда не находится времени для «Я». Своей головой вы пользуетесь уже миллионы лет.
Так хотя бы сейчас предоставьте время своему истинному сердцу.
Успокойтесь. Просто оставайтесь спокойными, и вы увидите, что произойдет. Прямо сейчас, в этот самый миг, будьте спокойными. Отложите в сторону свои инструменты. Ваше «Я» подойдет к вам, обнимет вас и одарит вас поцелуем.
Позвольте же этому произойти. Найдите этот миг для своего «Я»

Being aware of your mortal nature is extremely important. If you remind yourself every day, twice a day, that you will die, then you will naturally move toward knowing higher dimensions of perception. People think they are immortal, that is why they have time to live foolish lives. But if you know that today could be your last day, would there be time to get angry with anybody? Would there be time to do anything stupid with your life?

Silent repetition of the Lord's Name is a tremendous tonic and potent specific for all diseases. It should never be stopped even for a single day under any circumstances. It is like food. It is spiritual food for the hungry soul

"Просто иди своим путём". (Притча)

Один из учеников спросил Будду:
— Если меня кто-нибудь ударит, что я должен делать?
Будда ответил:
— Если на тебя с дерева упадет сухая ветка и ударит тебя, что ты должен сделать?
Ученик сказал:
— Что же я буду делать? Это же простая случайность, простое совпадение, что я оказался под деревом, когда с него упала сухая ветка.
Будда сказал:
— Так делай то же самое. Кто-то был безумен, был в гневе, и ударил тебя. Это все равно, что на тебя упала ветка с дерева. Пусть это не тревожит тебя, просто иди своим путем, будто ничего и не случилось.

Sri Nisargadatta's teachings defy summarization, but he frequently recommended the practice that had led to his own realization in less than three years:

Just keep in mind the feeling "I am," merge in it, till your mind and feeling become one. By repeated attempts you will stumble on the right balance of attention and affection and your mind will be firmly established in the thought-feeling "I am."2
2. I Am That, Chapter 16, p. 48.

Pure and impure thoughts are feature of the mind...
There are no wandering thoughts in the Supreme Being....
Therefore, abide as That and, be free from the pure and impure thoughts of the mind and remain still like a stone or a log of wood....
You will then be always happy....

Нас нет отдельно. Нету множеств
Во всеобъявшем сердце Божьем,
Во всеобъемлющем провале,
Где мы исчезли, мы пропали.
Но можно, только исчезая,
Узнать, что нет у жизни края.

II

Об этом - всё. Об этом - море,
Об этом взлёты дальних взгорий,
Озёр немеющая гладь -
О том, что надо всё терять.
Всё, всё отдать, всё разом скинуть
И без всего нырнуть в глубины.
Как долго небо на закате
Поёт, что надо всё утратить
И вдруг увидеть в бездне Божьей
То, что утратить невозможно.

Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7, Message – 192
Krishna says, ‘I am that procreative energy but without the fantasies of lust.’ How can one be a Creator, if one cannot procreate?

Many of our great sages in the past, the rishis and maharishis, such as Vashishta and Vyasa were grhastas, householders, who were family men with wives and children. Yet they were realized souls, enlightened. Other than Hanuman and Ganesha all our deities are married! Krishna is reputed to have had 16,008 wives!

How can the life form continue without procreation, without the sex act? Not everyone can have a virgin birth.

The desire for celibacy must happen before puberty. The first spiritual experience must happen before adolescence, so that the life-giving sex energy moves upwards as transcendental spiritual energy rather than descend as sexual and procreative energy. People who have this spiritual awakening because of their prarabdha karma (desires one is born with) are the Paramahamsas. That is their nature. Celibacy happens to them naturally.

To force celibacy after adolescence is difficult. It can be done but must be done with great caution and under supervision. Otherwise the so-called renunciate monk, the sanyasi, will pretend to follow brahmacarya, celibacy. Inside he will be filled with fantasies, ready to explode.

I have often explained that the word brahmacarya does not mean celibacy. It means ‘moving in reality’. It is very different connotation, if you study the meaning.

It is said that once Krishna was crossing the river Yamuna with a group of gopis, women devotees. The river was in spate. Krishna said to Yamuna, ‘If it is true that I am a brahmacari, part and let me walk across.’ The river parted and Krishna walked to the other bank.

A sanyasi who watched this was dumbstruck. ‘Krishna, a brahmacari? He walks with these women who are His lovers, and He says He is brahmacari and the river parts for Him! How can this be?’

That is what Krishna explains here, ‘I am the procreative energy, but without lust, without attachment and without fantasy. I am the ultimate reality!’

Fantasies are the root cause of our problems. With each fantasy coming true, more fantasies arise. We can never be in reality. To be in reality one must be in the present moment. When you are in the present moment you are Krishna.
