I received a call from a lady in Santa Cruse the other day and she started to tell me about her marital problems, so I stopped her. I told her I didn't want to hear anything about any marital problems.

Does she know who she is? That's all I care about. If she knows who she is, then she goes beyond marital problems. She goes beyond concepts, longings, wants, desires. She'll be safe.

For once you lift yourself up nothing can touch you again. The world no longer has any power over you. The world only has power over you when you identify yourself as a body. If you identify yourself as a body, then the world becomes real, objects become real, situations become real, the universe becomes real, God becomes real, everything becomes real and you live in duality. So one day you're suffering, the next day you're happy. Happiness leads to suffering, suffering leads to happiness.

Of course, that's human happiness I'm talking about, human suffering. But as soon as you learn to go beyond that, and again that happens by living spontaneously, all suffering ceases. After all, for who is the suffering? For the one who identifies with the thoughts.

Krishna to Arjuna:

I alone am real, Arjuna, looking out, amused from deep within the eyes of every creature. I am the object of all knowledge, father and mother of the world, the source of all things. I am the goal, the root, the witness, home and refuge, dearest friend, creation and annihilation, everlasting seed and treasure.

I am the radiance of the sun, I open or withhold the rainclouds, I am immortality and death, am being and non-being.

I am the Self, Arjuna, seated in the heart of every creature. I am the origin, the middle, and the end that all must come to.

I am always with all beings; I abandon no one. And however great your inner darkness, you are never separate from me. Let your thoughts flow past you, calmly; keep me near, at every moment; trust me with your life, because I am you, more than you yourself are.

HELPING OTHERS

Cast all claims, aspirations, desires to serve humanity and schemes to reform the world upon the Universal Power which sustains this universe. He is not a fool. He will do what is required. Lose the sense, 'I am doing this.' Get rid of egoism. ...

Have compassionate love for others but keep it secret; do not make a display of it or talk a out it. If your desires are fulfilled, do not be elated, and if you are frustrated, do not be disappointed. The elation may be deceptive; it should be checked, for initial joy may end in final grief. After all, whatever happens YOU remain unaffected, just as you are.

Q: But how can I help another with his problems?

M: What is this talk of another? there is only the One. Try to realize there is no 'I', no you, no he, only the ONE SELF which is all.If you believe in the problem of another, you are believing in something outside the Self. You will help him best by realizing the oneness of everything, rather than by outward activity.

THUL- THUL, NAN- NAN

When Maharajji came out you never knew what to expect. He could do the same thing a week in a row until you’d think, “Well, he’ll come out at 8:00.” Then he might not come out all day, or he might just go into another room and close the door and be in there for two days.
You had to learn to expect the unexpected.

One day he came out and all he said all day long was “Thul-Thul, Nan-Nan,” repeating these words to himself like a mantra. Days went by like this and somebody finally said, “Maharajji, what are you saying?”

And it turned out to be an old Behari dialect, and all it meant was “Too big, too big, too little, too little.” When he was finally asked why he was saying this, he said, “Oh, all you people, you all live in Thul-Thul, Nan-Nan; you live in the world of judgment. It’s always too big or too little.”

ALL VISIONS ARE MENTAL - REALITY IS ONE

Miss Umadevi, a Polish lady convert to Hinduism, asked Sri Bhagavan: I once before told Sri Bhagavan how I had a vision of Siva at about the time of my conversion to Hinduism. A similar experience recurred to me at Courtallam. These visions are momentary. But they are blissful. I want to know how they might be made permanent and continuous. Without Siva there is no life in what I see around me. I am so happy to think of Him. Please tell me how His vision may be everlasting to me.

M.: You speak of a vision of Siva. Vision is always of an object. That implies the existence of a subject. The value of the vision is the same as that of the seer. (That is to say, the nature of the vision is on the same plane as that of the seer.) Appearance implies disappearance also. Whatever appears must also disappear. A vision can never be eternal. But Siva is eternal The pratyaksha (vision) of Siva to the eye signifies the existence of the eyes to see; the buddhi (intellect) lying behind the sight; the seer behind the buddhi and the sight; and finally the Consciousness underlying the seer. This pratyaksha (vision) is not as real as one imagines it to be, because it is not intimate and inherent; it is not first-hand. It is the result of several successive phases of Consciousness. Of these, Consciousness alone does not vary. It is eternal. It is Siva. It is the Self.

D.: The Gita was taught for action.

Maharshi.: What does the Gita say? Arjuna refused to fight. Krishna said, “So long as you refuse to fight, you have the sense of doership. Who are you to refrain or to act? Give up the notion of doership. Until that sense disappears you are bound to act. You are being manipulated by a Higher Power. You are admitting it by your own refusal to submit to it. Instead recognise the Power and submit as a tool. (Or to put it differently), if you refuse you will be forcibly drawn into it. Instead of being an unwilling worker, be a willing one.

“Rather, be fixed in the Self and act according to nature without the thought of doership. Then the results of action will not affect you. That is manliness and heroism.”

Thus, ‘inherence in the Self’ is the sum and substance of Gita teaching. Finally, the Master Himself added, “If a man be established in the Self these doubts would not arise. They arise only until he is established there.”

D.: Then of what use is such reply to the enquirer?

M.: The words still have force and will surely operate in due course.

30th October 1945

Sri Dilip Kumar Roy of Sri Aurobindo Ashram this morning sang in the presence of Maharshi in the Hall and in the evening asked the following questions:
Dilip: Some people reported you to have said that there was no need for a guru. Others gave the opposite report. What does Maharshi say?
Bhagavan: I have never said that there is no need for a guru.

D: Sri Aurobindo and others refer to you as having had no guru.
Bhagavan: All depends on what you call guru. He need not be in a human form. Dattatreya had twenty-four gurus: the five elements – earth, water, etc., which means that every object in this world was his guru. Guru is absolutely necessary. The Upanishads say that none but a guru can take a man out of the jungle of intellect and sense- perceptions. So there must be a guru.

D: I mean a human guru – the Maharshi did not have one.

Bhagavan: I might have had one at one time or other. But did I not sing hymns to Arunachala? What is a guru? Guru is God or the Self. First a man prays to God to fulfill his desires. A time comes when he will no more pray for the fulfillment of material desires but for God Himself. God then appears to him in some form or other, human or non-human, to guide him to Himself in answer to his prayer and according to his needs.

We were told that we would see America come and go. In a sense America is dying, from within, because they forgot the instructions of how to live on earth. It's the Hopi belief, it's our belief, that if you are not spiritually connected to the earth, and understand the spiritual reality of how to live on earth, its likely that you will not make it.Everything is spiritual, everything has a spirit, everything was brought here by the creator, the one creator. Some people call him God, some people call him Buddha, some people call him Allah, some people call him other names. We call him Tunkaschila... Grandfather. We are here on earth only a few winters, then we go to the spirit world. The spirit world is more real then most of us believe. The spirit world is everything. Over 95% of our body is water. In order to stay healthy you've got to drink good water. ... Water is sacred, air is sacred. Our DNA is made out of the same DNA as the tree, the tree breaths what we exhale, we need what the tree exhales. So we have a common destiny with the tree. We are all from the earth, and when earth, the water, the atmosphere is corrupted then it will create its own reaction. The mother is reacting. In the Hopi prophecy they say the storms and floods will become greater. To me its not a negative thing to know that there will be great changes. Its not negative, its evolution. When you look at it as evolution, it's time, nothing stays the same.You should learn how to plant something. That is the first connection. You should treat all things as spirit, realize that we are one family. Its never something like the end. Its like life, there is no end to life

Babaji 11 APRIL 1983

Now I have given the slogan 'JAI MAHAMAYA KI JAI' - 'Victory to the Supreme Mother, to the Divine Energy!'

There will be people now with shaven heads and Sikhs with turbans and beards on the world flag. Yogis and Yoginis will be there. They will all come on to the world map. The fact is that the problem is universal. I have repeated this many times. It was Shirdi Maulana (Sai Baba of Shirdi in his incarnation as a Muslim emperor 800 years ago) who said that yogis and yoginis will take part in this revolution. The great energies, both known and unknown, which may be activated at any moment will be utilized in this revolution.

The fact is, I have spoken before. I will have to speak again. The fact is, I have to awaken the world from its sleep. The fact is that I, too, will have to come forward for this revolution. The fact is, to do duty, to be dutiful, is what I call Mahayoga. The fact is that at this moment our duty is to help the helpless. The fact is the future kingdom will have no party - it will be a movement and this movement will be worldwide.

The fact is, the person before you with the bulging eyes like the back of a seashell is the one who will come before you time and again. The fact is that he is the head of this movement. The fact is he will go to Assam, Punjab, Iran, Iraq - wherever there is revolution, there he will go. It is difficult to find a more serious man. The fact is that I have said it is a fact.

http://shiva.redzambala.com/…/teachings-of-haidakhan-babaji…

The Mantra:

The Lord's Name is like diving nectar (amrita); repeat it all the time.

OM NAMAḤ ŚIVĀYA:

This is the Mahamantra, the great original mantra, given by the Lord to humanity. Everyone should repeat it. It can be given to everyone and everything can be achieved through it. The power of Om Namaḥ Śivāya is infinite. This mantra is more powerful than the atomic bomb.

Meditation:

In this dark age (Kali Yuga) the mind of man is weak and restless from the first day of birth.

Because of this, no one is able to do the real practice of meditation anymore, but everyone can pray and repeat and chant the name of the Lord, using whichever divine name his religion teaches.

Yoga:

Everything can be yoga. Yoga literally means "union," as does the word religion. Work, action, worship are all forms of yoga. Meditation is the highest path of yoga, but very few are able to achieve true meditation.

Religion:

Every religion is equally good and leads to the same divine goal. It is wrong to speak of a Hindu Dharma (religion). The Dharma of India is the Sanātana Dharma (eternal, original religion).

Karma:

Karma is an inevitable law of cause and effect, by which all living beings reap the fruits of their actions and thoughts. Jesus stated the law of karma in the words "As ye sow, so shall ye reap."

The law of karma is above all things. Karma starts when movement starts in the mind. To stop karma we must bring the mind to that state of silence and voidness beyond which God can be known. Only a yogi knows how to do this. Otherwise, as long as a man breathes, he is creating karma. No one can remain without action, even for a minute. Therefore, learn how to dedicate your every action to the Lord.

Knowledge:

Nothing can be achieved without knowledge and yet everything can be achieved just through a pure heart.

Worship:

The Lord is beyond mane and form. No one is able to pretend to have reached this stage of realization. Worship remains an essential part of preparation and purification of the heart.

Discipline:

Nothing can be achieved without discipline. You should have the strong discipline of a soldier. Be the soldier of God, and act with courage and discipline. In this ashram and in the ashrams abroad, discipline is the primary thing. Life abroad should be led the same as it is in Hairakhan.

To work and worship together is essential in life. One should follow a vegetarian diet, take no intoxicants, and have sex only between husband and wife.

Food:

Control and discipline in eating is essential. Food always influences the state of the mind. It is important to eat light, vegetarian food. Fasting is a great practice.

Marriage and Sex:

In this Kali Yuga almost no one has the strength to remain celibate. Although this is the best condition, marriage is better than undisciplined relations. Union between a man and woman with love can bring peace and help in spiritual practice.

Drugs:

Drugs are harmful and useless for any spiritual practice. Even tea and coffee are harmful.

Devotion:

Devotion (Bhakti) and faith are the basis of everything. Through devotion alone, one can achieve everything. Complete faith, surrender and obedience are required. "You can only know Me through love - Divine Love, love for God, without any selfish purpose."

About Himself:

I am Bhole Baba (the Simple Father). I am nobody and nothing. I am only like a mirror in which you can see yourself. I am like fire. Don't keep too far away or you will not get the warmth. But don't get too near or you may burn yourself. Learn the right distance. My name is Maha Prabhuji (the Great Lord).

Can I Ask A Question?

Every answer is in your own mind. Once here, questions are no longer needed. I will speak to you inside.

Mind:

Everything comes from the mind and is created by mind. Control of the mind is the main practice.

Speaking:

Speak as little as possible. Don't waste your time. Be concentrated all of the time on the Lord's Name.

The Physical Body:

One day your body will be burnt and reduced to ash; don't be attached to it. However, without a body no knowledge is possible, so use your body for God realization.

Thoughts:

Learn not to make projects and fantasies about your future. Forget your past and old habits.

Learn how to concentrate your mind on the Divine only, here and now.

Hairakhan Vishwa Mahadham:

At the present time, this is the holiest religious place in the world, holier even than Benares. The water of this river (the Gautam Ganga) purifies you from all sins.

His Teachings:

When the time comes, I will reveal them. Now is the time for action. When I come to this world, of a million people who approach Me, only one is able to become my disciple.

Guru:

I am no one's Guru, but I am the Guru of gurus.

The Path:

The path of God realization is a most difficult one. Few are those who will walk it. It is as difficult as walking on the edge of a razor. The grace of the Guru is everything. No knowledge is possible without the Guru.

The Life Purpose:

Ask yourself what is your purpose in life and ask yourself why you have come here from so far.

Be aware of the purpose of your coming here and strive for spiritual achievements.

Love:

Live here with love for each other, like members of one family. Discard jealousy and envy.

Because you are all one, live here in peace. If you are in peace, I am in peace; if you have problems, I have problems.

Service:

To serve other people is the main duty of every human being. I Myself have come only to serve, to perform My duty. To be rally able to serve is the greatest thing.

Chanting:
Chant the name of the Lord always. By chanting the mantra, its vibrations spread all round you. You will then meditate for yourself and others. By holy chants alone, I will lead and win any war in this world. Whatever happens, all the devotees of God will be saved by Divine Will.

About The Coming Wars:
Terrible calamities and wars are approaching in the world. After a lot of destruction, a new age of goodness will come. I myself have come to prepare the world for a new kingdom.

On Non-Violence:
The theory of non-violence has spoiled the mind and courage of people today. I am for fighting; fighting against the evil and crime everywhere, which should no longer be tolerated.

Patience:
Nothing is possible without patience on the spiritual path. See yourself as the child, who gradually learns to write in school.

Liberation:
I have come to give Liberation to all of you. I have come to give the Light.

Renunciation:
In this age it is not possible to renounce the world. The only practice of renunciation now is to offer all work and actions to the Lord. If you want God, be ready to devote everything to God.

Where Is God:
God is everywhere, in everything; in the water in the sky . . . He is inside you.

What Is Truth?:
Truth is One.

Giving And Receiving:
I have come to give, only to give. Are you ready to receive? I give everything, but few ask for the Real Thing I have come to give...

OM NAMAḤ ŚIVĀYA BHOLE BABA KI JAI..

When I run after what I think I want, my days are a furnace of stress and anxiety; if I sit in my own place of patience, what I need flows to me, and without pain. From this I understand that what I want also wants me, is looking for me and attracting me. There is a great secret here for anyone who can grasp it.
