I want you to know the power , the liberation of another kind of science - the inner science, the yogic science - through which you can become the master of your own destiny.

Be like water. It rises above the stones and flows. Similarly rise above obstacles in life and move through them. Have patience and flow over them.

Every jiva experiences his own prarabdha,
which is catalysed by the mere Presence of Shiva
as the Witness dwelling in the heart of each one.
Hence, the jiva who does not delude himself
by thinking that he is the experiencer of prarabdha,
but knows that he is mere Existence-Consciousness,
is none but Shiva.

With great eagerness and wonder you fly to see one Mahatma here and another Mahatma there! If you inquire, attain and know the Maha-Atma [i.e. the Great Self] within your own heart, then every Mahatma is none other than that One [within you].

All depends on you. It is by your consent that the world exists. Withdraw your belief in its reality and it will dissolve like a dream. Time can bring down mountains, much more you, who are the timeless source of time. For without memory and expectation there can be no time.

' Ten Foundations of Training '

The Master said: When practicing the dharma, you must train perfectly in the ten foundations of training.

The lady Yeshe Tsogyal asked: What are these ten foundations of training?

The Master said: You must resolve through the view, gaining understanding of all the teachings, like the garuda bird soaring in the skies.

You must find certainty through the conduct, without being intimidated by anything whatsoever, like an elephant entering the water.

You must practice through the samadhi, clearing away the darkness of ignorance, like lightning a lamp in a dark room.

You must accomplish the aim through the instructions, liberating all phenomena in your nature, like finding a wish-fulfilling jewel.

You must progress gradually through the empowerments, being free from the fear of falling into samsara, like a prince ascending the royal throne.

You must keep the basis through the samayas, not letting any of your actions be wasted, like fertile ground.

You must liberate your being through learning, becoming adept in all aspects of the dharma, like a noble steed freed from its chains.

You must compare all sources, understanding all the philosophical schools of the dharma, like a bee seeking a hive.

You must condense them into a single point, understanding that all the numerous teachings are of one taste, like a trader adding together his profits.

You must reach eminence in knowledge, understanding clearly and distinctly the meaning of all the teachings, like arriving at the summit of Mount Sumeru.

The people of Tibet who desire to be learned without training themselves in these points are not learned in the essential meaning but become practitioners with much sectarianism.

This is due to the fault of not having become adept in these ten foundations of training.

I only came here to give. If you come to doubt, I'll give you reason to doubt, if you come suspicious, I'll give you every reason to be suspicious. But if you come seeking love, I'll show you more love than you've every known.

Experiences are like mist: they will fade away. Practitioners who spend their time practicing in seclusion are certain to have many different experiences, but these experiences are very unreliable. As it is said, experiences are like rainbows, but the great meditator who runs after them like a child will be deceived. We may occasionally have flashes of clairvoyance, seeing things we cannot ordinarily know. We may have signs of accomplishment, or predictions from the deity or the dakinis. But such experiences in most cases give rise to hope and expectation. They are none other than the tricks of demons: they simply cause obstacles. When true realization dawns in one’s mind, it is like the king of mountains, Mount Meru, which no wind can shake.

It is your state of silence,
it is your state of universal-hood.
It is you without the ego and its problems.
It is you without any questions and
without any answer either, simply silent.
And there is no joy which can transcend this silence.
It is pure light, it is pure delight.

All power to you
All grace to you
All love to you
Stay with this
Don’t be distracted by foolishness, by gossips and of these nonsense
You be the one, that wins yourself back.
Namaste.

Listen, Vedic tradition was never against wealth. Vedic tradition is against the fantasy about wealth. It is against you not taking the responsibility for wealth. Have the right relationship with wealth. It should be like a stable marriage relationship. Your relationship with wealth should be like a stable, responsible relationship, not just fantasy or flirting. If you want wealth in your life, you should be able to take the responsibility for the wealth. You should be able to take the responsibility to make it, live it and celebrate it.

Where Einstein ends, Upanishads begin. There is very thin line between Science and Spirituality. While Science starts with proof and ends with faith, Spirituality starts with faith and proof is mere byproduct of the experience and understanding.

BHAGAVAN ON HIMSELF (PERUMAL CASE)
" I have not given sannyas (the status of renunciate) to any one, nor have I taken sannyas from any one. I was living in Skandashram. My mother, who was also living there, passed away in 1922. Her corpse was brought to the foot of the hill and buried here and a samadhi (shrine) was built over it. From that time puja was started here. After a while I left Skandashram and came and stayed here. At no time have I taken any title. At no time have I initiated any disciples with diksha (formal initiation) or in any ritualistic way. I do not impose any restrictions or discipline on those who gather round me. I do not invite any one to come to this place, nor do I tell any one to leave this place. By birth I am a Brahmin.
I was a Brahmachari (celibate student) when I came here (i.e. to Tiruvannamalai). Within an hour of arriving I threw away my sacred thread, clothes, etc.; I shaved my head clean. I had about three rupees and threw it away, and since then I do not touch money. I accept in my hands things that can be eaten. I do not give upadesa (spiritual instruction) or call myself a guru. However, if questions are asked by seekers I answer them. Since 1907 people have called me ' Ramana Rishi'.
I am an 'athyashrami' (beyond the ashrams and castes) not falling within the category of any of the ashrams. This state is recognized in the sastras. It is explained in the Suta Samhita. The athyashrami can own property if necessary. He needs a guru,
but the Self is my guru. The athyashrami is not bound to observe any rites. I have no desire to aquire properties, but things come and I accept them. I agree that to own property is worldly, but I do not hate the world.”

The same energy that is giving you these words, the energy that comes from this hand giving you energy darshan, is the same energy that everyday turns planet earth and lights the sun.
It is me, that energy, that will take care and swallow your poison if you are ever depressed or suffering. So just unclutch from this moment - every moment.
Know Master is taking care and will never leave you now that I have found you. I came here to find you, you did ...not find me as you seem to think. I have you in my womb and in my heart.
I have sent my devis, Kali and Lakshmi, to take special care of you at my request as you remember the ultimate Truth.
I promise this truth will never leave you now.
Master has already taken care of the rest of your life. I tell you this is ultimate but not final Truth. You are not permanently enlightened but eternally enlightened by your very nature.
You are blissful by your very nature.
Forget being my devotee. There is nothing you can give me. You and I are the same and always have been one. Relax and enjoy how I love you and nothing else.
Enjoy living! be happy! be blissful! Over!

~ Mundaka Upanishad ~

The wise have attained the unitive state,
And see only the resplendent Lord of Love.
Desiring nothing in the physical world,
They have become one with the Lord of Love.

Those who dwell on and long for sense-pleasure
Are born in a world of separateness.
But let them realize they are the Self
And all separateness will fall away.

Not through discourse, not through the intellect,
Not even through study of the scriptures
Can the Self be realized. The Self reveals
Himself to the one who longs for the Self.
Those who long for the Self with all their heart
Are chosen by the Self as his own.

Not by the weak, not by the unearnest,
Not by those who practice wrong disciplines
Can the Self be realized. The Self reveals
Himself as the Lord of Love to the one
Who practices right disciplines.

What the sages sought they have found at last.
No more questions have they to ask of life.
With self-will extinguished, they are at peace.
Seeing the Lord of Love in all around,
Serving the Lord of Love in all around,
They are united with him forever.

They have attained the summit of wisdom
By the steep path of renunciation.
They have attained to immortality
And are united with the Lord of Love.
When they leave the body, the vital force
Returns to the cosmic womb, but their work
Becomes a beneficial force in life
To bring others together in the Self.

The flowing river is lost in the sea;
The illumined sage is lost in the Self.
The flowing river has become the sea;
The illumined sage has become the Self.

Those who know the Self become the Self.
None in their family forgets the Self.
Freed from the fetters of separateness,
They attain to immortality.

Let this wisdom be taught only to those
Who obey the law of life's unity.

Let this wisdom be taught only to those
Who offer their lives to the Lord of Love.

This is the great truth taught in ancient times
By the sage Angiras to Shaunaka.

Let us adore the illumined sages!
Let us adore the illumined sages!
