Be still. It takes no effort to be still; it is utterly simple. When your mind is still, You have no name, You have no past, You have no relationships, You have no country, You have no spiritual attainment, You have no lack of spiritual attainment.
There is just the presence of beingness with itself.

The more you think and talk,
The more you lose the Way.
Cut off all thinking
And pass freely anywhere.

August 29/2014 . - On this great day of Ganesha Chathurti let us all decide that we will strongly start believing - not just practicing - completion. Let us believe the power of Ganesha - completion - and have the faith that this is the only solution. With faith even in your sleep you will complete tons of incompletions and any day you will wake up enlightened and say
"lokah samastah sukhino bhavantu" -
May all the beings in all the worlds experience completion.'

Sadhana is towards creating a sense of inner fulfillment, where there is no need to lean on anyone anymore

' The luxury of many lives is available only to Hindus. Others, because they are not prepared for it, live like stones even when you are given an option. Denial of the truth of many births possible is one of the biggest wrong idea thought to human beings. If you are from the tradition of Sanathana Hindu Dharma, you are informed and prepared for you whole life. You should celebrate that these truths have been given in a factual manner to you.'

'I have seen, I have seen the followers of ISKCON, who are great worshippers of deities and forms, at the fag end of life becoming followers of Krishnamurthy, J. Krishnamurthy. I have seen it! And followers of J. Krishnamurthy, some of the top followers of J. Krishnamurthy, at the fag end of life becoming followers of ISKCON or the movements where the deity worship is done or where the form is worshipped. Please listen! Listen to this! Deity worship alone by its own right can give you enlightenment. Same way, what J. Krishnamurthy is teaching, the choiceless awareness, that alone by its own strength can give you enlightenment. Deity worship is an independent path; from A to Z it can lead you to enlightenment. Choiceless awareness is an independent path; just by its strength, it can lead you to enlightenment from A to Z. Deity worship or choiceless awareness, both will lead you to complete enlightenment, no doubt. Listen! But you have to be sure about you, what do you want, please understand. The most unfortunate thing is not being sure about yourself.'

Yogananda always said: "Environment is more powerful than will power." Please choose your environment carefully, where you live, how you live, with whom you live, etc. The world has no mercy, and if don't kick yourself in the ass somehow, you will suffer, and finally that will bring you back to looking within your own Self for answers. You can choose that sooner or later. Only you can decide how you want to live, what your inner voice tells you.

You have to simply become aware of the movement of the mind,
which begins this endless trouble.

You say you wish to be free of desires and expectations.
And it is true: your own desire is disturbing you.
For even noble desires such as the desire to save the world or to be a good person or even to attain liberation can actually distract you from discovering what is truly already here—natural, unbound contentment.
Once you have a desire burning inside, you will be waiting anxiously for it to be fulfilled, and if it is not fulfilled, your anxiety will increase.
So it is good to be open to the possibility of dropping all desires.
Desire promises much but fulfils little.
Though it is possible, most people find it impossible to drop even a single desire as they feel they will lose something precious.
It is like taking a dry bone from a dog.
So rather than telling you to drop desire, I say, find out what it actually promises to give you, and also identify the actual person who will receive it. Don't assume. Find out. Is any of this real?
These questions can feel deeply challenging as they threaten to expose ego's unreality. Very few go beyond to discover their real power as the undivided Self and so put an end to delusion.

Who will rise to this challenge?

Why should God surrender Himself easily to you? You who work so hard for money and so little for divine realization! The Hindu saints tell us that if we would give so short a time as 24 hours to continuous, uninterrupted prayer, the Lord would appear before us or make Himself known to us in some way. If we devote even one hour daily to deep meditation on Him, in time He will come to us.

The repeated desire of enjoying what has been enjoyed and of seeing what has often been seen, is not the way to get rid of worldly-bondage; but is the cause of repeated birth, for the same enjoyments.

Poem to Kailash...

Like the snows, I come and go
Like the snows, I melt at your feet
Like the snows, I adorn you
I am your footwear and your crown
Just trying to be as much to you
As you are to me

Will not only keep coming to you
As long as my lungs can hold
the life breath and my legs can hold
up to the pressures exerted by
the embrace of my Mother - Earth

Don't you mistake my southern
origins for the arrogance of
the ten-headed Lankan king

With my sheer absence
I will hold and transport you
South of Vindhyas. As the
ancient people of these gentle
lands have longed for You
for too long. Steadfast in devotion
their hearts throb with
One single emotion
for You, You and You.

The Sage does not wash sins away with water,
Nor wipe away the pain of beings with his hands.
His realization he does not transfer to others.
He frees by showing them the peace of ultimate reality.

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.

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."

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.
