Avoid cynicism, arrogance and judgement of others and life, for this more than any other evil blinds you to seeing the glory and miracles of God in your daily life. Sometimes God reveals Himself in the very thing or one you have been judging and you find yourself bowing at the feet of that one.

Have you not noticed how, when you find it impossible to get the object of your love, you either wish to kill it or to die yourself? Whereas, the love of God, takes you to the death of death, to Immortality.

Attention to one's own Self, which is ever shining as 'I', the one undivided reality, is the only raft with which the individual, who is deluded by thinking 'I am the body', can cross the ocean of unending births.

Be nobody.
When you are somebody, there are so many duties that even to be yourself is such a hassle.
When you are nobody, you escape from every trap.
It is immediate freedom!

HOW TO WIN A FOLLOWING

Playing the simple meditator and keeping a low profile would not be successful - who would know about your realization then? If you happened to be an upstart lama with a penchant for fame and fortune you would have to brag a little. You would need to tell about how many dharma lineages and teachings you held, how long you stayed in retreats, how special your realization is, how you tamed both gods and demons, and the like. Then things would happen; you would be swarmed by sponsors and followers like a piece of rotting meat covered with flies.

Q : Should I abide as the pure “I" and have faith that purity will come?

Sri Papaji :

Don't waste your time in the purity of mind
because mind cannot be pure.

Even the desire to be pure is the trick of the mind.

You will spend many lives purifying the mind,
but it will never be pure.

Look at the story of Vishwamitra and Manika.
After purifying his mind for 10,000 years
he still falls for her instantly.

It is better to just allow your desires to arise and
not let them touch you.

Let them arise and let them be fullfilled.

You simply stay Quiet.

Don't try to become anything,
don't go anywhere
and
don't do anything
and
don't undo anything.

Find the source of these concepts and stay there.

This is bliss, nothing else.

This knowledge is bliss.

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.

To Vallalar’s compassion we have devoted one full section already.
Vallalar’s path of Suddha Sanmargam could be described as a “path of infinite
compassion, knowledge and felicity”.’ He made it the essential and the single step in
soul making and God-becoming, His views have never been heard before.

"I wish for the great man who is filled with grace who shall all. I shall serve them so they can become the embodiment of Grace Light themselves.
I wish that man whose essence is mercy,
Who sees all life as his own, let him be lighted into the truth and I will
keep him into my soul as God’s children’s.
Whenever I ate appetizing food ,my mind trembled with fear
Wondering what suffering will come out of this joy,
And, therefore often remained with an empty gnawing stomach.
Oh my father I receive whatever loving friends offer me out of love and
saying:
“Alas, Oh God, do not let me suffer by these”,
I ate the things with fear in my mind with the awaiting consequences."

Why Vallalar was eating less?
As your vibration and spiritual evolution grow more in
the divine grace, divine amrita or nectar flow in your body and come feeding everyone of your cell. As a consequence if you force yourself to eat food just by desire this will create an incompatibility inside your physical body. These are bringing suffering to the physical body due to the difference of vibration between solid food and ambrosia.

Also every time we eat our food organs have to work. Because of the over use of the inner organs we get older faster and death comes quicker.

Also it is not necessary to eat a lot. If the food is purified hundred of times then a small quantity of food should be good enough.

When our thought ceases and when there is no resistance for the descent of Grace into the diverse bodies the need of solid food will diminish and will be replaced by Divine Amrita, Divine Prana or Divine Grace Light.

He was transparently sincere, transparently humble, transparently saintly and
full of grace. The last infirmity of noble minds—the seeking of fame—also was not his.
Living in God, was self-sufficient:

"As I realized the Divine form revealed to me, I’m enjoying more and
more to integrate it within my system. I would like to be unnoticed by
the world up to when I transform myself completely into a Gnana
Deham body. But the Divine wish and will has revealed mew here I
stand now in the beginning itself. For this my mind is perturbed to
see that I’m not perfect yet."

The last achievement of man the complete conquest of mind was his. He
banished mind from him.
He emerged above the earthly plane to one of different dimensions where
we, ordinary humans, may not follow him.

He slept very little. He advised, in his instructions to his disciples, that one
should sleep only between midnight and three o’clock in the morning. In his
discourses at Mettukkuppam, he advised them to sleep only one hour a day. It is
stated that in his youth he slept three hours a day, then two hours, and then one hour,
and finally, his disciples reported that in the end he did not sleep at all. He addresses
God as ‘You who banished sleep for me’. He says he is apprehensive of sleeping:

"Supreme Light, that shines before and beyond Time,
Have you made me Yours?
I lough to the sleep that comes night or day.
It troubles me that it comes.
Unwilling I sleep; and when
I awake, I call on you and pray,
‘Lord’ when will the sleep be abolished ?"

He banishes sleep:

"Sleep, you silly Idiot, beware!
If, within half an instant of this warning,
You do not leave me, with your brood,
for good, you shall be accursed.
I’ve transcended sorrow. I’ve gained
creative will, and I rejoice, I’m not for you,
Get away and be quick! I’ve behind me
the Lord of the Golden wisdom sphere"

He always dressed in white. His dress consisted of two pieces of long cloth.
No other dress, no other color. The four great Tamil prophets of Saivism of old
were also ascetics in white. Vallalar, in one of his discourses, said:

"Ochre robe represent a struggling aspirant
man who has to fight against his own nature,
One who has subdued his nature has gained
compassion, for him white robe is fitting as a winner aspirant.."

He refers to his white dress in a verse, which describes also certain other
features :

"Shy of swinging arms,
I walked with folded hands;
Averse to be bare,
I covered body and head with white cloth ;
I cast no glance
where smartness sauntered
lest the sight offend me."

This walking picture of Vallalar brings out the quintessential man.

Furthermore:

"High-placed seats unsettled me
Sitting cross-legged seems a pose
I dare not sleep on soft bed.
When sitting on a dais, I hardly dare
to stretch down my legs.
Loud talking harrows me—
Spare me these, my mother.
Then, when I ate twice a day,
and slept a long time—you made the sleep
and food serve me for you...
And then, when I ate but once, my father,
People around, puzzled, would question me."

He declared:

"In the flood-tide
of ever-repeated and ever-relished food,
all gains of restraint and penance turn to emptiness
like tamarind thrown in running river."

"Lord, grant me to be pure compassion
Help me to tide people over their grief and fears
Aid me to build a world where there is no murder
and where there is no eating by killing.

Let me sing
Your glory without end—
Lord my Mother,
For this I pray."

He does not have any hostile reaction to this people ideas, and do not preach
them, but instead he place his agony before God. The fact that vegetarianism exists on a considerable scale in Tamil Nadu today is largely owing to Vallalar Swamigal. His
disciple Velayuda Mudaliar writes (to quote Mudaliar’s original in English): ‘He
(Ramalinga Swamigal) had a strange faculty about him, witnessed very often, of
changing a carnivorous person into a vegetarian; a more glance from him seemed
enough to destroy the desire for animal food.’

People plant demeaning little gods
over the land, and in the names of these,
They kill sheep and swine and fowl and bulls,
Bleeding their robust lives
I am witness to this, and weary;
My reason fails, my senses reel.
The red houses of abhorrence
of these wretched little gods
I have pain in seeing it.

When I see men feeding themselves with
vicious meat food,
It is ever-recurring grief to me;
I tremble, I faint, my flesh shrinks,
You do know my sore-troubled mind,
My exhausted mind, my Master
He expressed again and again his horror of killing:

I shuddered at the horrid killer’s
swift-descending axe on the prostrate life.
When with my eyes I saw
the terrible agony of taking life away,
or the fishermen’s net on the sand
with bait, or rope with noose, or trap,
Lord, Lord, my Father, You do know,
How, how, shall I utter my agony?

The miracle-working adept,
Though he may change a man
into a girl, and that girl, freshly risen in beauty,
Back to a virile man in a trice,
Though he may raise men from the dead,
I swear by my Master, I swear
by God’s effulgent Flame,
If he be thinking, in his merciless mind,
To eat and feed on a body that was house of life,
Him I do not hold in reverence.

Seeing withered corn, my spirit drooped,
Watching the wretch that begged from door to door
unavailingly, and hungry sank to sleep,
I brooded. At sight of long-racking disease
I shuddered. Starving, poor, too proud to beg,
and spirit-broken, broke me.
O Last Boon, Shining Lord of Ethereal Space,
When I hear of human creatures starving
or spent with hunger, a fear seizes me,
like a fire in the mind, quickly ablaze,
and my body shivers.
Cattle’s lowing turned hoarse
Dismayed me.
Bull and beast ill-fed
Preyed on me.
Quacking fowl and duck
Unhinged me.
Lord, when I saw the murderous knife
Dangling from the butcher’s hand,
I trembled in fear.
When people’s voices rose in squabble
A shivering came on me.
When they knocked at the door in frenzy
It jarred on me.
O Lord, you know, when some one wailed, ‘O father’ or ‘mother’ or ‘Alas’,
The words tore through me
Like an uprooting storm.
O Essence beyond the mind of man,
Final Anchor, my Master,
I, your servant, bound to my kin,
friends, comrades, mother, brothers,
sisters, others, am sore-troubled
to see passing clouds on their faces,
You know.
O Father, Splendor of the Cosmic Stage,
My God, my great Goal,
Need I tell you
the distress that sears my mind
When, in this distressful world,
Mother, comrades, friends,
People near to me, people next to me,
People removed from me,
Suffer, and I see them suffer,
Pangs of hunger, pain of disease.
Scorching afflictions,
Lord, You do know.
Lord, whose dance is blessing
Seed and fruit of final being,
In this passing show of life
Choked by grievous want,
When greyed people and young people ,
known and unknown, recount to me
their trials and tribulations,
My mind trembles and splinters,
Lord, You do know.

In one of what he calls his ‘Petitions of the Supreme Effulgent Grace’ he prays:

Lord of all, Supreme Effulgent Grace! Grant that henceforth our minds are not tainted
with ritualistic and other aberrations of creeds and sects, cultural and other aberrations of
castes and codes.
Let the awareness of the identity of the soul universal right to love and to be loved by all
beings, which is the prime gold of the pure spiritual seeker, not forsake us at any time in
any degree, in any manner, in any place. Let it ever illumine and move us.
God of Shining Light, we thank You for Your mercy, we thank You.

People must realize that they must hasten to bring to fruition the rare chance of human
birth given to them.
That fruition consists in gaining the joy of awareness of the pure Effulgent Grace that
shows through all lives, all deeds, all things, all worlds, and thus in gaining the highest
life that is not impeded at any time in any way by anything.
The way to attain this life and this joy is through gaining the Grace which is the natural
quality of God.
There is only one way to attain this Grace, and no other. It is to make the Grace which is
the natural quality of God one’s own natural quality. What is Grace in God is
compassion for Life in man.

Sometimes when my heart is full,
brimming with that joy,
something erupts inside, that I want to tell you.
And I think, Should I say such things?
should I say such things?
Should I tell you, that you are the Christ in Jesus?
you are the Buddha in Siddharhta,
that you are Paramatman in Krishna,
or Brahman in Shiva?
Will you merely inflate yourself with this,
or will you drown in this?

So when I refer to you,
I refer to you as the undivideable,
momentarily dreaming.
Are you up for it?
Are you up for being what
you cannot avoid but be?
I don't know.

So I myself bow to that in you,
towards whom these words point.
and which itself has nothing to accomplish,
but whose joy is in recognising itself,
and to be free of delusion.
I bow to that in you.
Bow to that in yourself.

On another day, in 1922, his devotees witnessed a dramatic revelation of his Divine Nature. Twenty-five or so devotees had gathered for meditation at seven o'clock in the evening. Suddenly they discovered Nityananda in their midst, crouching and straining, looking as though he were going to vomit. Instead, they saw a huge flash of light around his form. When they approached Nityananda, all signs of life had left his body, which was quickly growing stiff. Immediately word went out that the young Master had entered mahasamadhi. The devotees watched over Nityananda all night. No one touched the body and no doctor was called in. However, they did hold cotton near his nose to see if there was any breath, but none was detected. Suddenly, at four o'clock in the morning, Nityananda began to move.

Completely startled, his devotees placed him on a bed and stretched his limbs. When they put questions to him, Nityananda responded almost incoherently, saying, "The time has not yet come. This one came a little out of place and out of time. The time is not yet. Nobody appreciates and understands the things he does. So he wanted to discard the body and go. But a few sages met and they told this one, 'You go back. You have taken the body, why not use it up?' Let's see, Ramakrishna was there, Vivekananda was there. . ." He mentioned five names, but the people who were around him could not remember them all. In five-minutes he was fully conscious, and would answer no more questions.

There is only the one Self.
An unchanging, unmoving silence.
It is not waiting.
And It is not contemplating.
It is not reflecting.
It is not inquiring.
It is not resting.
All this could be perceived as modes of the mind itself.
What is that which is not in gear?
It is not a state.
It is not in between states.
It is not the gap between thoughts.
It is not a gap.
It cannot be done or undone.
For Itself, there is no such thing as practice.
No such thing as contemplators, meditators or attainers of It.
Hidden, yet nothing can hide It.
Revealed, yet nothing can see It.
Self-knowing, yet It is without knowledge.
Self-realised, yet It is without mind.
Blessing itself, yet It is beyond duality.
Being, yet It is beyond being.
Unfathomable, unconquerable, ungraspable.
Who or what is there?
Beyond sin and beyond righteousness.
It announces Itself as the sense 'I am' inside the body.
But It is even beyond 'I' and beyond body.
Ungraspable, yet attention and the pure intellect
may recognise and acknowledge It.
Being revealed but It is not revealing.
Recognising Its all-pervasiveness, joy fills the Heart.
Intelligence dances.
Peace is very happy.
The universes prostrate themselves,
yet their Lord they cannot see.
