I have taught you the methods that lead to liberation. Practice with diligence; your liberation depends on you.

Yoga is definite and scientific. Yoga means union of soul and God, through step-by-step methods with specific and known results. It raises the practice of religion above the differences of dogma. My guru, Sri Yukteswar, extolled Yoga; he did not, however, indicate that realization of God thereby would be immediate. "You have to work hard for it," he told me. I did, and when the promised results came, I saw that Yoga was marvelous.

The most destructive shaft of maya--delusion is unwillingness to meditate, for by this attitude one prevents himself from tuning in with God and Guru.

Appearing in a host of different forms,
The Buddha urges virtue on all wandering beings.

The sphere of living beings is unbounded,
Likewise the desire to help them all.
And even if you lack the strength for altruistic action,
This is something you should constantly intend.
In those who harbor wishes such as these,
Bodhichitta will indeed be born.

What is called "existence" is but clinging to things' permanence;
And "nonexistence" is the view of nothingness.
And thus the wise and learned do not rest
In either "This thing is" or "It is not."

One who "knows," knows there is no need for discourse; knowing is enough.

No man can seek the divine because he does not have the capacity for such a search. But when somebody has become ready to disappear, has become ready to be a nobody, has become ready to become an emptiness, then the divine will certainly find him. Only the divine can seek for man, man can never seek the divine because even in seeking, the ego is present.

So a religious person is not one who sets out in search of the divine: a religious person is one who sets out in search of his " I "- and the more he goes on searching, the more he will find that his " I " is not at all there. And the day the " I " no longer remains, on that day the door which is hiding love will open for him.

So I say that the day the shadow of "I" disapears, the day neither " I " nor "you" remains, on that you will no longer have to search for divine - the divine will come searching for you.

Awareness is not affected by agreeable or disagreeable perceptions. It simply stays as it is, in the same way that a mirror when it reflects all forms faithfully and with absolute impartiality, so too an enlightened being clearly perceives all phenomena without his realization of the ultimate nature being affected in any way.

The Buddha is not going to project you to Buddhahood, as if throwing a stone. He is not going to purify you, as if washing a dirty cloth, nor is he going to cure you of ignorance, like a doctor administering medicine to a passive patient. Having attained full enlightenment himself, he is showing you the path, and it is up to you to follow it or not. It is up to you now to practise these teachings and experience their results.

All waters are brooded over by Nârâyana, but every kind of water is not fit for drink. Similarly, though it is true that the Almighty dwells in every place, yet every place is not fit to be visited by man. As one kind of water may be used for washing our feet, another may serve the purpose of ablution, and others may be drunk, and others again may not be touched at all; so there are different kinds of places. We may approach some, we can enter into the inside of others, others we must avoid, even at a distance.

Always at the point of real atomic recognition, the strongest doubt and loudest noise will come.
Don’t panic.
They are phenomena.
You are the witness of both doubt and noise.
They happen in you, not to you.
You forever remain the immaculate Self.

It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.

The mind wants to take credit for Awakening. It wants to turn it into an achievement. By being the achiever of enlightenment it retains its identity, pride, separation and deceitfulness.
Find that which is not a doer, not an achiever.
Find That which simply Is.

When you’ve seen beyond yourself then you may find peace of mind - it is waiting there and the time will come when you see we’re all one and life flows on within you and without you.

And men go abroad to admire the heights of mountains, the mighty waves of the sea, the broad tides of rivers, the compass of the ocean, and the circuits of the stars, yet pass over the mystery of themselves without a thought.

Doing as others told me, I was blind.
Coming when others called me, I was lost.
Then I left everyone, myself as well.
Then I found Everyone, Myself as well.
