2327. ' Tell Them, Who know and Yet know Not

No use telling
Those who are in ignorance steeped;
No use telling
Those who are in Jnana filled;
Tell only them
Who know and yet know not;
Then will they know
And Self-realize.

2697. ' Seek Himself as Yourself '

Himself as Lord
In all things, He alone is;
Himself is Yourself
Thus you seek Him;
The very Heaven is He in this vast earth;
Sweet is He;
May you Him adore.

2588. ' Total Merging '

When body and Jive
As unbroken unite (in Yoga)
Then shall Grace of Shiva Sakti be;
Then does Jiva, Param become;
Jiva that leaves this body,
Pervasive then becomes;
With beginning and the none
In Shiva forever it merges.

2585. ' Immortality Conferred '

Renouncing all, I inward entered
And beheld the Light within;
My heart trembled;
I prostrated low;
But Him I forgot never;
And the Lord of Celestials
Freeing me from whirl of births
Immortal made me, here below.

1689. ' Other Blemishes of False Disciples '

He thinks not of ending Fetters Five
Nor of deliverance from incessant lust immersed;
A mean liar, fears neither birth nor death
Verily, a stranger to Grace shall be
He, the disciple false.

1695. ' Pure thoughts lead to Grace '

When your discipline perfect be,
Your thoughts crystal pure be;
And there the beauteous Lord reside be;
Then shall Karmas all
Rooted deep unto undying weeds,
Disappear;
And you shall glimpse the Grace
Of the valorous Feet of Lord Holy.

14. FIT DISCIPLE

1691. ' Lord! Grant me Your Grace '

You, Supreme Lord!
Seeking You, I lost all sense of fear;
Now I wander not,
And seek not another's company;
Shatter, Lord, my Karmas
Uproot them from my very thoughts
and kick them off;
Grant me Your Grace.
Own me,
And make me Your slave forever.

1690. ' They who find the Path '

Scriptures to guide them,
The Disciples Fit
Find the blemishless Guru;
They know their job and so find the Path;
The rest are to destruction destined.

They who reach Her, of Compassion Divine
Well may they be here on earth below
Yet regard them not as humans;
Divine are their qualities;
Serene is their composure,
Higher than Celestials are they.

Holding the worlds apart, as the Heavens high He spreads;
Himself the scorching Fire, Sun and Moon,

109. ' All Gods Are But the One Shiva

It is only by the grace of Shiva decked with konrai flowers,
That the celestials and the humans who are in essence the same exist.
There is no God except He,
Our only duty is to enshrine Him in our heart.

24. PATIENCE

539. ' Patience is the Sheet-Anchor of Yogis

In the hearts of those who are firm of mind*
Like the (Varmamus) lizard of Yoga Vairagya
It lay besieging nose and tongue - (in Khechari Mudra)
In the troubled thought that knows but torture,
The only thing that stands still
Is devotional Patience Exceeding.

* - Troubled thought is a torture , "Vairagya" or firmness in divine thought alone is bliss. They who possess such firmness of mind are the yogis. Their firmness is revealed in 'khechari mudra', where tongue stops the nasal orifice in yogic breath-exercise. Their firmness can be compared to that of the 'Varamus' lizard, which tenaciously holds to the object it seizes and does not swerve, however hard you pull the reptile.

The peaceful individual remains calm until he wants to work, then he swings into action; and as soon as he is through, he swings back to the centre of calmness. You must always be calm, like the pendulum that is still, but ready to swing into action whenever necessary.

By the indiscriminate blending of the two – the Existence-Knowledge-aspect of the Self and the thought-wave of the intellect – there arises the notion of “I know”.

The Universe was created out of joy
and this is why you find joy in the fleeting things of the world. Without joy, life is an ordeal.
You must try to attain to that great Joy
which has brought forth the world.

True knowledge consists in seeing phenomena as void and knowing the one emptiness to the sole unity and real entity. The appearance of the world is only a perspective of the environment that is Divine Consciousness. It is contained in the small space of human consciousness within the soul.

Unconscious beings bring locks and chains from the past birth. Conscious beings bring keys from the past birth. Once you achieve a Vedic mind, you don't need to maintain it. However, your body though it becomes a yogic body, as long as your carry it, you have to maintain it. I give you the key that I brought from the past birth - and that is: constantly being aligned to authenticity. Functioning towards this alignment to your authentic identity is what I call Advaitic activism. Each thought and action, find out if it is aligned with your declared identity. This one thing does everything - everything you ask for and don't ask for is showered on you. This is living enlightenment.

The Benefits of Organic Cotton and Silk

The kind of clothes you wear can impact your physical and mental health and wellbeing. So it is important to look at what the weather is like today and what kind of clothing would be best for your health and wellbeing. But most people are not thinking of their wellbeing. You will see, for example, in a country like India, many people walk around in forty-degrees-centigrade weather wearing black jackets and ties! What you eat, what you wear and how you live are about your wellbeing. Unfortunately, so many people just wear whatever is being put on them without looking at what they should wear and why.

Why organic clothing matters is because there is a huge difference in the way your body functions when you wear synthetic clothing and when you wear organic clothing. You needn’t believe anything that anyone says. Try it out and see how it feels. Wear raw silk or cotton – even your inner garments – for a week and see how your body feels. Then wear something tight and synthetic and check. You will see a big difference in the level of comfort and ease at which your body functions because there is a certain aspect to what wraps the body.


Another thing is, how you can exude who you are is also enhanced or restricted by certain substances. Cotton and silk are best for your system. Particularly raw silk or cotton that is not treated in any way has a certain kind of impact. It is not that if you wear synthetic clothing you will fall dead. You can still meditate and be the same person even if you wear synthetic from top to bottom – but with a little struggle and effort.

TO ABIDE IN AWARENESS !

Without a center, without an edge,
The luminous expanse of Awareness that encompasses all -
This vivid, bright vastness:
Natural, primordial presence.

Without an inside, without an outside,
Awareness arisen of itself, as wide as the sky,
Beyond size, beyond direction, beyond limits -
This utter, complete openness:
Space, inseparable from Awareness.
Within that birthless, wide-open expanse of space,
Phenomena appear - like rainbows, utterly transparent.
Pure and impure realms, Buddhas and sentient beings,
Are seen, brilliant and distinct.

As far as the sky pervades, so does Awareness.
As far as Awareness extends, so does absolute space.

Sky, Awareness, Absolute space,
Indistinguishably intermixed:
Immense, infinitely vast -
The ground of samsara,
The ground of Nirvana.
To remain, day and night, in this state -
To enter this state easily - this is joy.
Emaho!

~ Shabkar

HOW THE MOMENT OF DEATH CAN LEAD TO LIBERATION ?

If all we know of mind is the aspect of mind that dissolves when we die, we will be left with no idea of what continues, no knowledge of the new dimension of the deeper reality of the nature of mind. So it is vital for us to familiarize ourselves with the nature of mind while we are still alive. Only then will we be prepared when it reveals itself spontaneously and powerfully at the moment of death; be able to recognize it "as naturally," the teachings say, "as a child running into its mother's lap"; and by remaining in that state, finally be Liberated.

THE INNATE BEYOND SUBJECT AND OBJECT

Phenomena are the radiance of the innate Absolute;
Mind's nature is the Wisdom of the innate Absolute.
The ultimate teacher - phenomena and mind merged in one taste -
Dwells naturally within myself.
Ah ho! What a joy!
