‎" Everything affects everything...In this universe, when one thing changes, everything changes...all minds are joined...Hence the great power of man, in changing the world...by changing himself..."

Once the false notion ‘I am the body’ or ‘I am not realised’ has been removed, Supreme Consciousness or the Self alone remains and in people’s present state of knowledge they call this ‘Realisation.’ But the truth is that Realisation is eternal and already exists, here and now. Consciousness is pure knowledge. The mind arises out of it and is made up of thoughts. The essence of the mind is only awareness or consciousness. However, when the ego overclouds it, it functions as reasoning, thinking or perceiving. The universal mind, not being limited by the ego, has nothing outside itself and is therefore only aware. This is what the Bible means by ‘I am that I am.’

Mr. Ekanath Rao, an engineer, asked Sri Bhagavan if solitude is necessary for vichara.
M. There is solitude everywhere. The individual is solitary always. His business
is to find it within, and not seek it externally.
D. The workaday world is distracting.
M. Do not allow yourself to be distracted. Inquire for whom there is distraction.
It will not affect you after a little practice.
D. Even the attempt is impossible.
M. Make it, and it will be found not so difficult.
D. But the answer does not come for the inward search.
M. The inquirer is the answer and there is no other answer. What comes
afresh cannot be true. What always is, is true

You think you are alive
because you breathe air? Shame on you,
that you are alive in such a limited way.
Don't be without Love, so you won't feel dead.
Die in Love and stay alive forever

By a steady and continuous investigation into the nature of the mind, the mind is transformed into That to which the 'I' refers; and that is in fact the Self. Mind has necessarily to depend for its existence on something gross; it never subsists by itself.

For him who is the Bliss of Self arising from extinction of the ego, what is there to do? He knows nothing other than this Self. How to conceive the nature of his state?

All things are being carried on by the omnipotent power of a Supreme God. Instead of submitting ourselves to It, why should we always be planning, ‘We should do this or that’. Knowing that the train carries all the load, why should we, traveling therein, suffer by carrying our small bundle on our heads, instead of leaving it on the train and being happy. (Gems From Bhagavan, Chapter 5)

" The entire spectrum of the experimental world is what I am and even beyond that!...Let me repeat this!...it is not that there's an 'I'...that is one with all the other 'I's...in the world...no, it's that the 'I' as a psycological entity, which carries a feeling of independent doership, is not found...and in its place a sense of Unity appears.
What's realised is that only the Self is here...only the pure Self is here...there are not two chairs in your heart, a big chair for the big Self and a little chair for the little self...there's just the Self, you see?...it's from here that a sense of 'other' forms...all are forms of the one Self.
Once this union with the Self has become your own reality, what you used to perceive as another person will have blurred to nothing more than a unique fragrance of the Self...you will perceive the same Self in all beings.
There is a saying, 'I am not seeing the world as it is, I am seeing the world as I am'...in other words, when you are the Self then the 'other' is also the Self, because the Self does not see 'other'...."

“The Lord responds to all and works for all.... He fulfills any sincere desire of the devotee. Seldom do men realize how often God heeds their prayers. “He is not partial to a few, but listens to everyone who approaches Him trustingly. His children should ever have implicit faith in the loving-kindness of their Omnipresent Father.

Forget the past. The vanished lives of all men are dark with many shames. Human conduct is ever unreliable until anchored in the Divine. Everything in future will improve if you are making a spiritual effort now.”

“Above everything else, be loyal to God. Devote more time to seeking Him. And be less concerned over lesser duties which, someday, won’t exist anymore anyway. In those lesser preoccupations lies the greatest delusion. Never look upon them as, in themselves, important. Nothing is so pressingly important as your daily tryst with God.”

“True friendship is broad and inclusive. Selfish attachment to a single individual, excluding all others, inhibits the development of divine friendship. Extend the boundaries of the glowing kingdom of your love, gradually including within them your family, your neighbors, your community, your country, all countries, in short, all sentient creatures. Be a cosmic friend, imbued with kindness and affection for all of God’s creation, scattering love everywhere.”

Khecari Mudra


(43-50) When prana flows naturally through the two nadis then there is no obstacle to khecari mudra. This is beyond doubt. --When the prana current enters the sushumna between ida and pingala then khecari mudra begins to become meaningful. --Between ida and pingala there is an unsupplied [i.e., with prana] space. It is there where the tongue performs khecari mudra. --The khechari mudra in which the nectar from the "moon" is collected stands in high esteem with Siva [who is kala, nada and bindu]. The incomparable, divine sushumna is blocked off by the inverted tongue. --The sushumna will also be closed when the prana current is suspended [by entering the sushumna]. This is the perfect khecari mudra that leads to samadhi [unmani, mindlessness]. --Between the eyebrows is the seat of Siva [of higher consciousness]. There conceptional thinking is absorbed. This state is samadhi [turiya] where death has no access. --One should practice khecari mudra until the state of samadhi [Yoga nidra. Yoga sleep] is achieved. He who succeeds in this will conquer death. --After mind has been freed from clinging [withdrawn from conceptualizing objects] it should not produce further thoughts. Then it resembles an empty pot surrounded and filled with space [akasha, ether].
