Both the good and the pleasant present themselves before man. The wise (intelligent) one examines them well and discriminates between them. He prefers the good to the pleasant. The dull one chooses the pleasant out of greed (to acquire more) and desire (to protect what he has)

Chapter 10, Message –258


If we feel deeply connected to the person, no matter whether it is our husband,wife, kids, parents or our Master, he will look like God. Whatever he does, we will feel that he is divine.


Why do you think the eternal lovers Ambikavati and Amravati, Devadas and Parvati,Laila and Majnu, Romeo and Juliet, felt that the other person was God? They almost felt as if their partner was divine. They gave their life for the other person. Why?


When we feel deeply connected, when we feel deeply related, when we are in love with another being, that other being will look almost like God. Look at the great Mirabai. She was so much in love with Krishna who was not even physically in front of her. Yet, she felt so deeply connected to Him. She talked to Him, sang His praises and became totally immersed in Him. When Mirbai was given poison,she even drank that, totally surrendering herself to Krishna. The power of her love and devotion was such that even a deadly poison has no effect on her!


Vivekananda describes a naga sanyasi who lived in a cave. All kinds of wild animals including snakes surrounded the area. He had many snakebite marks, but he was so connected to Existence that he welcomed snakes! All we need is the attitude of deeply connecting through the heart.


The problem is that we have forgotten how to connect through the heart. All our relationships have become superficial. Now, the wife is no more a wife. In the modern day society, the husband is no more a husband. He is just a boyfriend.She can be with him as long as she wants. She can leave him when she doesn’ twant.


Be very clear: In Sanskrit, we don’t have an equivalent word for divorce. The idea never existed! In Hindu marriage, no divorce is allowed. We take an oath in front of agni(fire) ‘As long as you are alive, as long as I am alive, I will support you.’ Both partners take this oath in front of agni. The agni is inside our body. The jataragni which is the digestive fire inside our body is represented by the agni in the ritual fire outside.


As long as this fire is inside our body, we will alive. The moment this fire in our body disappears, our body will be in fire in the cremation ground! Either the inner fire is in our body or our body will be put in outer fire.

In ront of this fire as witness, we take the oath, ‘Hereby I commit, as long as this body is alive, I will support you. As long as this body is alive, you will take care of me.’ It is a commitment of a lifetime.


Sanskrit doesn’t have an equivalent word for divorce because the concept did not exist at that time. With the cultural invasion of the so-called developed cultures,the materialistic cultures, changing the wife, house and car has now become a fashion. Once in three months, the house, car and wife become outdated.


Sometime ago, a man asked me to bless his divorce. In India, a Master is not only a spiritual person, he is also marriage-broker, financier, counselor,psychiatrist and a doctor! Masters are supposed to do all these things.Whatever decisions are advised by an enlightened person are for your good. Out of compassion and responsibility for the world, the Master acts.

We must meditate to attain deep faith. After we have received the first contact of God, we should then seek to develop the contact into a greater and greater consciousness. That is what Jesus asked everyone to do. He wanted them to receive his omnipresent consciousness. And that is what Paramahansaji teaches. He brings us God and all he asks is that we receive.

We say time heals but the Being in us which is beyond time, heals us . Be it any problem, worry , suffering, pain we are having ! The ability within us which makes us stand up again and again, this in itself is a proof that we are not just human beings having spiritual experience we are divine beings having human experience

You may say, ‘I cannot see Him with these eyes of mine. I cannot hear Him with these ears. How then am I to perceive Him?’ You can never perceive Him in this way. To go to the Creator you must throw aside these instruments which take you directly to the created. You must go beyond your mind and senses; then meditation will come of itself. This is the only way to get the inner vision. These senses are made for the creation, not for the Creator.

In one of the Interviews to the Students in Prasanthi Nilayam, Swami was asked the following questions, the Answers were the Greatest Truths made the Most simple :

Swami what is Creation ?

"Never comprehend Creation, It is something Divine and cannot be comprehended, Can you clap with one hand, you cannot, that is creation, There is only One hand in creation and that is God's.

Swami,Is There reincarnation and rebirth for everyone?

Bhagavan: You are reborn now, aren't you?, You will be again and again and again. The body is nothing but pure illusion and this illusion will keep on repeating itself on and on until you find the Real Self. Then there is nothing like Rebirth and you will be one with the Lord.

Swami, What actually is Birth and Death ?

Only the Body has birth and Death, but the Body is illusion created by you, So in actual reality there is no Birth and Death at all.

Love must get to its right destination, it must go unto Him who is really the infinite ocean of love. God is the one goal of all our passions and emotions. If you want to be angry, be angry with Him. Chide your Beloved, chide your Friend. Whom else can you safely chide?

Avadhuta Gita of Dattatreya

See More
The Self is said to be like the sky.
Indeed, It is like the sky;
It's pure Consciousness, without any stain.
It is truly the all-embracing Whole.

It remains unaffected,
Though It takes the form of earth, air, water and fire.
Though It takes all these forms,
It remains always the same.

All infinite space is pervaded by the Self,
But nothing else pervades the Self.
It is simultaneously within and without;
It cannot be limited or divided in parts.

~ Dattatreya's Song of the Avadhut 2.12-14

We take an insurance policy so that our relatives will be able to take care of themselves when we are gone. But is it not far more important to ensure that we will be happy in our after life? Dharma is after life insurance. But in this life too it is dharma that gives us peace and happiness.

There is something beyond knowledge of the Absolute. After jnana, comes vijnana. He who is aware of knowledge is also aware of ignorance. He who has knowledge also has ignorance. If a thorn pricks your foot, you have to use another thorn to take out the first. Having done that, you throw both thorns away. That is why vijnana is necessary.
