Collected information being taught and further research on that information is not education. Exploring multiple possibilities of the brain to have access to multi-dimensions of the Universe is education. Gurukul is for this purpose.

Rumi, 13th century Sufi poet and Mystic

All day I think about it, then at night I say it.
Where did I come from, and what am I supposed to be doing?
I have no idea.
My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that,
and I intend to end up there.

This drunkenness began in some other tavern.
When I get back around to that place,
I’ll be completely sober. Meanwhile,
I’m like a bird from another continent, sitting in this aviary.
The day is coming when I fly off,
but who is it now in my ear who hears my voice?
Who says words with my mouth?

Who looks out with my eyes? What is the soul?
I cannot stop asking.
If I could taste one sip of an answer,
I could break out of this prison for drunks.
I didn’t come here of my own accord, and I can’t leave that way.
Whoever brought me here, will have to take me home.

This poetry. I never know what I’m going to say.
I don’t plan it.
When I’m outside the saying of it,
I get very quiet and rarely speak at all.

Q: The inner teacher is not easily reached.
M: Since he is in you and with you, the difficulty cannot be serious. Look within and you will find him.
Q: When I look within, I find sensations and perceptions, thoughts and feelings, desires and fears, memories and expectations. I am immersed in this cloud and see nothing else.
M: That which sees all this, and the nothing too, is the inner teacher. He alone is, all else only appears to be. He is your own self (swarupa), your hope and assurance of freedom; find him and cling to him and you will be saved and safe.

All power, listen, all power has to be from oneness. Sadashiva explains - first a person need to start practicing the preparations, it's called charya, like you do pooja, you do yoga, you do pranayama, you apply bhasma, wear rudraksha; all this lifestyle practices. Then, you start doing kriya, turning your body and mind to higher realms - that is kriya. Then, connecting with those higher realms - that is yoga and living in that higher space itself is jnana.

This is the normal course of a spiritual seeker in regular traditional Shaivite method.

We think that the way we lead our lives as well as the rules our society lays down for us to follow, and the creation are all ruled by logic. We are completely wrong. Life is far beyond reason and logic. All the laws, rules and regulations are based on partial understanding of life. But life is beyond all our understanding and beyond our logic.
People ask me, ‘Why is this life created at all?’ There is no answer to this question of human logic. Life is based on God’s logic. There is no place in this universe that He is not present. There is no time He is not present. There is nothing He does not know. In front of God’s will our logic and reasoning melts like ice in front of the sun.
Human logic and God’s logic can never meet. His logic is so immense, vast and infinite. We can never match His logic. Life, in myriad forms, is created by Him. Rules are created by us. Universe is created by Him. Laws are created by us. Naturally, our laws can never match or fit with God’s logic or God created life. Life is natural. Laws are societal. Life is physical. Laws are mental. All our ideas, all our dos and dont's, all our morality, all our rights or wrongs are given to us by society. God gives us only love.
Society rules us by labels. We are called as a saint, saviour, or a sinner by the society. Not by God. When society titles us as saints, we are saints. The moment society decides we are sinners, we are sinners. To God, we are still the same, saint or sinner. When a person kills another person in society, that person is labeled a murderer and punished. If the same person kills someone on the war front, he will be hailed as a hero and rewarded. The act is the same, but the effects are different.
Society rules us by these labels that are based on manmade rules and regulations. Those who create these rules often exempt themselves from application of these rules. God neither creates these rules nor promotes them. There is a great danger in following the logic laid down by the society without understanding and awareness.
We need to look beyond human logic of sin and guilt, heaven and hell, fear and greed. We need to seek an inner awareness of why we follow these rules. With that understanding you can experience the logic of the Divine, the gift of compassion and existence. Do not follow moral rules blindly. Meditate upon them and seek understanding. Whatever you then do will be right. You will experience Nithyananda, Eternal Bliss.

Shiva tattva is total; it is complete. Shiva is where the mind dissolves. He is formless yet sees all. He is the formless core of existence and also the goal. He is the seer, sight and the scene. He is without a beginning or end. He permeates the entire creation. He is never born and is eternal. He is the fourth state of consciousness, the non-dual consciousnesses that is present everywhere.

"Why does not the Mother answer to the cry of Her children?"
She was once asked. Immediately without a moment's deliberation, rang out Her voice, - 'Pitaji Pitaji".
There was no response to Her call. Once more She called and someone stood up in the hall and responded. She laughed - and She laughs with the whole of Her being - and triumphantly said - "You did not answer, because you thought I was not serious in calling you. But you answered when you realized that I was calling you.
Likewise, the great Mother knows when Her children are at play and when they really need Her. They call Her often without really wanting Her. But when they fall and are hurt and cry for Her help, She answers immediately."

Dropping from the play and relaxing into Itself is called dissolution. Dissolution is the settling back into the Absolute or Parabrahma state. Then for no logical reason, the play starts again.... This continues. What we see as results are the infinite happenings in the universe.

At one of my experiences in India,
I was with a yogi called Neem Karoli Baba.

And one day a bunch of us,
and one of the people there was Ram Dass,
you remember Ram Dass he was there too.

We were sitting in front of him,
when an old lady came up to him and spoke in Hindi,
whatever language they were talking I forgot.

And what she said was that her husband was dying,
"Would you please come and save him,
because only you can come and save him.”

And Neem Karoli Baba looked at me
and said, "Should I go?" and
I said, "yes go, let's all go."

So we walked about two miles to a little shack and
the husband was lying on the cot dying of some kind of disease.

And he looked at him and
all of a sudden the candles began to flicker.
So he turned around and ran out the house and
started to run back to the ashram and we all followed him.

And we said when we finally stopped we said,
"Baba what happened?
Why did you leave?" and
he said, "Ah, God wants him to die," and he died.

The point is this:
your life, your health or your sickness,
your riches or your poverty
has all been preordained by the law of Karma.
And whatever you're going to go through,
you're going to go through.

If you're supposed to become a health fanatic and
watch your health and eat the right things all the time,
you will do that and if you're not supposed to, you won't.

If you're supposed to take the middle path you will do that.
Everything is ordained, planned before time.
The only freedom we've got is to not identify with the process,
even though your body's going through it.

Do not attach yourself to what your body's going through.
Keep your mind above it,
keep your head in heaven and your feet on the ground.
So we have no choice in the matter.

Whatever is going to happen will happen.
So if we have to do all kinds of things and
we find ourselves running from one doctor to another doctor
and so forth, do not attach yourself to that
but do it anyway because you can't help it.

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Question : Can you try to clarify this a little more,
you've just been speaking of karma, and
yet I know that you believe that karma does not exist will you comment on that,
karma exists and karma does not exist?

Robert : Again the Buddha said,
"Karma is a taskmaster for the foolish and
the servant to the wise,"
meaning, if we in the level mentally of karma,
we will suffer and it'll become our task Master.
But if we lift our minds away from the condition and we keep our minds
on the absolute reality,
we will not suffer no matter what the body is going through.

Who suffers?
The mind, not the body, the body cannot suffer.

The body is merely a lump of flesh and bone and blood,
but it's animated by the mind, so the mind suffers and
allows the body to suffer, but the body can do nothing by itself.

So if the mind is taken away from the body something else will happen,
you'll be free.

(SA: What was the line again? Buddha's line, karma is the taskmaster for the foolish...)

...and the servant for the wise,
it's a servant because you do not pay any heed.

(SA: Control it.)
Exactly, you observe it and you do not respond.
So it becomes your servant when you do not respond to karma,
then you overcome it.

In other words if somebody becomes angry at you and you do not respond,
there is no karma, and you'll be free.

Karma again is like a person, who talks to you
and talks to you and talks to you but you say nothing.

What will that person do?
They'll get up and leave.
So when your karma sees that you're not paying any attention to it,
It dissipates and returns to the nothingness from whence it came.

Let's play some music.
Why don't you put the fan on while we're doing it?

To assure you there is a power that knows how to take care of all things if you
trust it. That power of course is you, but you don't know it.

I've been trying to get a hold of a certain picture of Ramana Maharshi for quite a
while but first I should tell you that, when I was seventeen,
I was led in mysterious ways to Arunachala, where I met Ramana.

I won't elaborate on that right now but
there was mysterious circumstances that caused that.
So going back to now, I tried to get a picture of Ramana Maharshi that I liked,
and sure enough last week George brings me the same picture as a present,
in color, that I had been looking for for a long time.

So I took it home and hung it on the wall.
But in the meanwhile I had a visitor from Hawaii.
He used to be one of my students came to see me,
he was traveling through and he brought a lae and put it around my neck.
So I took off the lei and put it around Ramana's picture,
and he said to me - after being on this path for so-called ten years or more,
he said, "I didn't know you worship gurus."

Now, he should've known better.
So I explained to him the facts. Ramana's not a guru, he is the same as my Self,
I am simply paying homage to my Self.
There is only one Self and we are all that.

So when I honor him with a lei I am doing it to me
because he is none other than my Self,
and you none other than my Self also. So it's not a guru worship,
it's bowing to your Self, praying to your Self, worshiping your Self,
because God dwells in you as you.

But this just goes to show you that there is a power that knows how to take
care of you, that loves you, that is always on your side.

It only requires one thing, surrender.
Surrender to your Self.
God, guru and Self are one,
bow down to your Self, love your Self.

When I speak of your Self I'm not referring to your ego self.
There is something about you that perhaps you're not aware of yet.
The absolute reality that we've been talking about.
It is you, that's what you worship, that is what you bow down to,
that is what you express.

Never defile your Self, by hating yourself.
Never believe there is any mistake you've made
that is going to rise up against you.
Everyone has made mistakes, forget it.

Begin to realize who you are,
begin to love yourself dearly, have mercy on yourself,
lift yourself up and become free,
any questions about that ?

Q: While making japa for an hour or more I fall into a state like sleep. On waking up I recollect that my japa has been interrupted. So I try again.

Sri Ramana Maharshi :
`Like sleep', that is right.
It is the natural state.
Because you are now associated with the ego,
you consider that the natural state is something
which interrupts your work.
So you must have the experience repeated
until you realize that it is your natural state.
You will then find that japa is extraneous
but still it will go on automatically.
Your present doubt is due to that false identity,
namely of identifying yourself with the mind that does the japa.
Japa means clinging to one thought
to the exclusion of all other thoughts.
That is its purpose. It leads to dhyana which ends in Self-realization or jnana.

We have 4 mothers.
1. Biological mother, who nurtures us physically, psychologically and morally throughout our life.
2. Cosmic mother, who knows all our thoughts and creates situations according to our need.
3. Mother cow, who provides nourishment through milk (after our biological mother weans us off) till a day after our death.
4. Mother earth, who listens, knows and records what our body needs; and provides accordingly.
