FIRE
Fire, divine purifier, purify my heart.
Fire, O power of God, purify my mind from all evil.
Fire, in You, I see the Maker, Purifier, and Healer, God.
Let love's fire remain in my heart and all else be burnt.
Let me live in Your warmth;
raise me above the coldness of the earth.
Kindle, Lord, fire in my heart, that life may become clearer to me.
Let the tortures of life burn up all which keeps me from rising to Your spheres of freedom and peace.
Destroy, Lord, my infirmities by the fire of Your love.
Raise my soul up as the rising of the flame.
Let my false self be turned into ashes
that my true self be born as a phoenix.

Every day you should sit quietly and affirm, with deep conviction: "No birth, no death, no caste have I; father, mother, have I none. Blessed Spirit, I am He. I am the Infinite Happiness." If you again and again repeat these thoughts, day and night, you will eventually realize what you really are: an immortal soul.

The First Experiment Is Silence.

The first experiment with religion must begin with silence. Most people never take time to be silent or to sit quietly in meditation. Hours and hours I remain in inner silence. When I am with people, I enjoy them immensely; I am with them fully and wholeheartedly. But when I am away from people, I am entirely alone in that supreme joy of life—the bliss of God. No matter where I am, that joy of God is always with me. Why don't you experiment with silence, so that you can live in this same way? Most of you can't sit still for even ten minutes without your thoughts running away in all directions. You have not learned to be at peace in your home within, because you are always restlessly chasing about in your mind. My master, Sri Yukteswar, used to say: "Locking the door of the storehouse of happiness, man runs everywhere else, begging for that happiness. How foolish, when he has the whole store of joy lying within himself!" From my childhood I sought God, and communion with Him has given me happiness that no fulfilled material desires could ever give. You have nothing if you have not God. You have everything if you have God; for He is the Master of the universe.

Let Advaita be the source of your Enlightenment,
Let Advaita be the source of your excitement,
Let Advaita be the source of joy,
Let Advaita be the source of pleasure,
Let Advaita be the source of life,
Let Advaita be your strategy even when you face death.
Let non-duality be YOU and may YOU be THAT

'Understand so many times I have seen people again and again and again, if you feel you are powerless and you think you should be forgiven, life does not run by communism, god save yourself (himself?) from communism. That is why communists think there is no god. Maybe communists are right god by the western standards does not exist but Ishwara exists.. they are wrong when they say totally all gods do not exist. Then they have not tasted Sanatana Dharma... listen, completing, completing, all the incompletions, getting out of the victimhood is living advaita. Understand, advaitic activism means, again and again and again, bringing yourself to perpetual completion. Perpetual completion is life. Life runs by perpetual completion. Life runs by perpetual completion understand, perpetual completion is advaitic activism. Constantly complete complete complete yourself. Completion is nothing but the decision to drop your past incompletions and never let them to have influence of you again. Thats all. Never let them have influence over you again thats all. Understand, when you start doing perpetual completion, when the perpetual completion becomes your lifestyle in every step you know how to be active advaiticly, how to have the advaitic activism. Essence of todays satsang, bring the context to your thinking. The moment you bring the right context, you will become authentic integrated responsible and enriching, Advaitic activism will simply happen in you.

Bliss is a phenomenon that cannot be hidden. It is fire. It is flame. We cannot hide it. It is impossible to hide it.


Chapter 14, Message –348



Secret traditions advise people to ‘hide it’. This is because if our bliss is known is some cultures, countries or traditions, we will be in danger. These culture skilled people because they were joyous. These people, in their utter joy and divine madness, they said things that opposed the religious interpretation of the scriptures. They went against tradition and conformity.


In great joy a Sufi Master declared, ‘I am God.’ He wanted to share it. His Master warned him to keep his mouth shut and not to utter a word. This man promised,yet moments came when he would shout, ‘I am God.’ And not only would he shout,his whole being would shout. Each fiber of his body would shout! He was so full of light. He was killed, murdered.


Miserable people cannot tolerate a blissful person. It hurts to see somebody blissful. It creates jealousy. It hurts their ego. So Sufis learned to hide it. So have others. Ultimately it is impossible to hide it. Bliss is a luminous phenomenon.


Misery is dark; Bliss is bright. Misery is a light unmanifest, a candle unlit; bliss is a candle lit. How can we hide it? It is impossible. Of course we have not yet created a society that loves these Masters without judgment. We have not been able to create a society that appreciates blissful people. However, even if we lose our life letting our whole being declare the ultimate Truth and joy of Existence, it is worth it.


Man looks small. He is not. He is like a small seed that can grow into a big tree.And a single seed can fill the whole earth with greenery. A single seed contains infinity. Like that, man is a seed of divine love and that seed can become a vast continent. And unless it does, we are never contented. Unless we become pure love with no desire to gain anything except the joy of sharing, we are unfulfilled. Only by becoming total and absolute love, does life come to its ultimate peak. That peak is called God, paradise, and Nirvana.


We must grow towards more and more love. No other prayer is needed, no other scripture is needed and no other discipline is needed. Love is more than any scripture or discipline. It brings its own order; it turns out chaos into a cosmos.

We can govern our mind in the same way we control our body’s movements. In this way, we can decide and declare who we want to be.
It is possible to train our minds and encourage only the thoughts
that are in alignment with our highest possibility, discouraging and completing with low ideas. Let us take responsibility for ourselves
and align ourselves to our peak possibility!'

The Liberated mind has a natural option which the egoic mind lacks — it can function in the world and yet remain in perfect serenity as unmoving Awareness.

When the sense 'I am' and awareness are experienced as one, there is no such thing as ego.

Only in God Are You Safe From Delusion.
So don't be attached to the passing dreams of life. Live for God and God alone. This is the only way to have freedom and safety in this world. Outside of God there is no security,- no matter where you go, delusion can attack you. Be free right now. Be a son of God now; realize you are His child, so that you may be rid of this dream of delusion forever. Meditate deeply and faithfully, and one day you will wake up in ecstasy with God and see how foolish it is that people think they are suffering. You and I and they are all pure Spirit. Krishna said: "Of the unreal, there is no existence. Of the real, there is no nonexistence. The final truth of both of these is known by men of wisdom.

You are the Fullness of Love in Love
and the Emptiness of Awareness.
You are Existence and the Peace beyond Peace.
You are that screen on which all is projected.
You are the Light of Knowledge,
the One who gave concept of creation to the creator.
Forget what can be forgotten and know yourself
to be that which can never be forgotten.
You are the substratum on which everything moves, let it move.
You are Now, You are Nowness:
what 'I' is there which can be out of this Now?
You are the Truth and only the Truth Is

Q: No matter how quiet I get or how still my mind is, I never get to see the world as an indivisible whole. Even when my mind is completely still, if I open my eyes I still see a world of separate objects.
AS: When the one who sees vanishes, the world of multiplicity goes with it.
… You don’t see the unity and indivisibility, you are it. You can never see the Self or Brahman, you can only be it. …
The Guru may tell his disciples a thousand times, ‘You are the Self, you are not what you imagine yourself to be’, but none of them ever believes him. They all keep asking the Guru for methods and routes to reach the place where they already are.
Q: Why don’t we give up our false ideas as soon as we are told that they are false?
AS: We have identified with our false ideas for many previous lifetimes. The habit is very strong. But not so strong that it cannot be dissolved through constant meditation.
Q: The seeker has many ideas: ‘I am a jiva (personality), I am bound and have to do sadhana to attain liberation’. Should we forget all these ideas? …
AS: Yes, forget them all! ‘I am the Self, I am all’. Hold onto this awareness. All other paths are roundabouts.
Q: Bhagavan said that repeating, ‘I am the Self’ or ‘I am not this body’ is an aid to enquiry but does not constitute the enquiry itself.
AS: The meditation, ‘I am not the body or the mind, I am the immanent Self’ is a great aid for as long as one is not able to do self-enquiry properly or constantly.
Bhagavan said, ‘Keeping the mind in the Heart is self-enquiry’. If you cannot do this by asking ‘Who am I?’ or by taking the I-thought back to its source, then meditation on the awareness ‘I am the all-pervasive Self’ is a great aid.
Bhagavan often said that we should read and study the Ribhu Gita regularly.
In the Ribhu Gita it is said: ‘That bhavana (mental attitude) ‘I am not the body, I am not the mind, I am Brahman, I am everything,’ is to be repeated again and again until this becomes the natural state.’
Bhagavan sat with us every day while we chanted extracts from the Ribhu Gita which affirm the reality of the Self. It is true that he said that these repetitions are only an aid to self-enquiry, but they are a very powerful aid.
By practicing this way the mind becomes more and more attuned with the reality. When the mind has become purified by this practice, it is easier to take it back to its source and keep it there. When one is able to abide in the Self directly, one doesn’t need aids like this. But if this is not possible these practices can definitely help one.
