If you realize that all things change, there is nothing you will try to hold on to. If you are not afraid of dying, there is nothing you cannot achieve.

When the goal is reached, when you know the Knower, there is no difference between living in a house in London and living in the solitude of a jungle.

As all waves are in the ocean, so are all things physical and mental in awareness. Hence awareness itself
is all-important, not the content of it.

Know well that the experience of Bliss exists only in Self and never in this life of delusion, and hence achieve Self-Knowledge, which is the Space of Grace and the final state of Supreme Silence.

"Who am I"

Question No 21: Is it necessary for one who longs for release to inquire into the nature of categories (tattvas)?

Bhagawan: Just as one who wants to throw away garbage has no need to analyse it and see what it is, so one who wants to know the Self has no need to count the number of categories or inquire into their characteristics; what he has to do is to reject altogether the categories that hide the Self. The world should be considered like a dream.

All religions are equal to me. And all castes and creeds are dear to me. But though I appreciate all `isms,' religions and political parties for the many good things they seek to achieve, I do not and cannot belong to any of these `isms,' religions or political parties, for the Absolute Truth, while equally including them, transcends all of them and leaves no room for separative divisions which are all equally false

If you want to understand or grasp Truth in the way that Buddha has, you will have to disappear personally.

To coax God to give Himself takes steady, unceasing zeal. Nobody can teach you that zeal. You have to develop that yourself. "You can take a horse to water but you cannot make him drink." Yet when the horse is thirsty it seeks out water with zeal. So, when you have an immense thirst for the Divine, when you will not give undue importance to anything else -- the tests of the world or the tests of the body -- then He will come.

He who stands on tiptoe
doesn't stand form.
He who rushes ahead
doesn't go far.
He who tries to shine
dims his own light.
He who defines himself
can't know who he really is.
He who has power over others
can't empower himself.
He who clings to his work
will create nothing that endures.

If you want to accord with the Tao,
just do your job, then let go.


from 'Tao Te Ching', v. 24

I know now that I am a lion of cosmic power. Bleating no more, I shake the error forest with reverberations of Thine almighty voice. In divine freedom I bound through the jungle of earthly delusions, devouring the little creatures of vexing worries and timidities, and the wild hyenas of disbelief. O Lion of Liberation, ever send through me Thy roar of all-conquering courage.

There is no activity such as being the awareness or staying as awareness. That which is aware is simply aware beyond the concept of 'someone' being aware.

We are like the spider.
We weave our life and then move along in it.

What one fails to know by conversation extending to several years can be known in a trice in Silence, or in front of Silence - e.g., Dakshinamurti, and his four disciples.

This existence of ours is as transient as autumn clouds. To watch the birth and death of beings is like looking at the movements of a dance. A lifetime is like a flash of lightning in the sky, rushing by, like a torrent down a steep mountain.

Bhagavan elaborated on this in an explanation he gave to Lakshmana Sarma:

If the eye that sees be the eye of flesh, then gross forms are seen; if the eye be assisted by lenses, then even invisible things are seen to have form; if the mind be that eye, then subtle forms are seen; thus the seeing eye and the objects seen are of the same nature; that is, if the eye be itself a form, it sees nothing but forms. But neither the physical eye nor the mind has any power of vision of it’s own. The real eye is the Self; as he is formless, being the pure and infinite consciousness, the reality, he does not see forms.
[MahaYoga p83]

AS YOU ARE SO IS YOUR EXPERIENCE

52 If one corrects one’s gross vision, transforming it into the eye of jnana, and if one attentively views [the world] with that eye of truth that is wholly jnana, then the world which was previously seen as the form of the five elements, beginning with space, will be only the Brahman that is entirely consciousness. (GVK)

This idea appears in Ulladu Narpadu, verse 4:
Bhagavan: If one’s self is a form, then it follows that the world and the Supreme will have form also. If one’s self is not a form, who is there to see their forms, and how? Is there anything that is seen whose nature is other than that of the eye [that sees]? That eye is in reality the Self, the infinite eye.

'Fig' contains, the ancient tradition holds, a subtle essence which is capable of producing "spiritual quietude". I had read in 1960s in the Russian Government magazine, "SPUTNIK " that Russian scientists had done research on 'Figs' and had discovered that it did contain a chemical which in human system was found in between the eye-brows. And that, this fluid helped one to concentration and meditation, with one-pointed attention !

Devotee: Can't a Guru give us realization as a gift?

Sri Bhagavan : The Guru is a very powerful aid on the path, but your effort is also essential; it is 'you' who 'sees' the Sun -- can your spectacles do it for you? You have to 'see' your 'True Nature'.

Get the mercy of God and of his greatest children. These are the two chief ways to God. The company of these children of light is very hard to get. Five minutes in their company will change a whole life. And if you really want it enough, one will come to you.
