It is not enough to pray to God. We must also listen for His answer , in deep meditation.

The fear of suffering is constantly ruling within: ‘If something doesn’t happen, what will happen to me?’ So, what should we do with the desire?

When something you want doesn’t happen, it makes you miserable, isn’t it? Desire seems to be the source of misery. At the same time, if you compromise the desire, in some way, you compromise your life process. Why is it like this? It seems to be the basis of your life and the basis of your misery which some conclude: life is misery. Life is not misery, nor is it joy. You can be joy or misery, yes or no? Life is simply there. Either you can experience it joyfully or miserably.”

I like to walk alone on country paths, rice plants and wild grasses on both sides, putting each foot down on the earth in mindfulness, knowing that I walk on the wondrous earth. In such moments, existence is a miraculous and mysterious reality. People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child--our own two eyes. All is a miracle...

Distracted as we are by various thoughts, if we would continually contemplate the Self, which is itself God, this single thought would in due course eliminate all distraction and would itself ultimately disappear. The pure consciousness that alone finally remains is God. This is liberation. To be constantly centered on one's own all-perfect pure Self is the acme of yoga, wisdom, and all other forms of spiritual practice. Even though the mind wanders restlessly, involved in external matters, and so is forgetful of its own Self, one should remain alert and remember; 'the body is not I'. Who am I? Inquire in this way, turning the mind backward to its primal state. The inquiry 'who am I' is the only method of putting an end to all misery and ushering in Supreme Beatitude. Whatever may be said, and however phrased, this is the whole truth in a nutshell"

Доктор Пааво Айрола, специалист в области диетологии и естественной биологии, утверждает: "Двадцать лет назад считалось, что ежедневная норма потребления белка составляет 150г, а сегодня офицально признанная норма снижена до 45г. Почему? Благодаря исследованиям теперь достоверно известно, что организм не нуждается в большом количестве белка и его ежедневная норма составляет 30-45г. Избыточное потребления белков не только бесполезно, но и приносит вред организму человека, более того, оно может стать причиной таких болезней, как рак и сердечно-сосудистые заболевания. Чтобы получить 45г белка в день совсем не обязательно есть мясо. Полноценная вегетарианская диета, состоящая из злаков, бобовых, орехов, овощей и фруктов и др., вполне обеспечивает человека необходимым количестом белка".

В философии Веданты ум (маномайя коша) считается квинтэссенцией пищи. Уддалака Аруни, знаменитый мудрец древности, утверждает:
«Съеденная пища разделяется на три части. Самая грубая часть становится экскрементами. Средняя часть становится плотью.
Тонкая часть становится умом» (Чандогья Упанишада VI, 4.1.)

Discover all that you are not -- body, feelings thoughts, time, space, this or that -- nothing, concrete or abstract, which you perceive can be you. The very act of perceiving shows that you are not what you perceive.

The world has achieved brilliance without conscience. Ours is a world of nuclear giants and ethical infants. We know more about war than we know about peace, more about killing than we know about living. If we continue to develop our technology without wisdom or prudence, our servant may prove to be our executioner.

A study published in the Journal of Nutrition in March 2005 showed that adding avocados to salad increased absorption of alpha-carotene, beta-carotene and lutein 7.2, 15.3, and 5.1 times higher, respectively, than the average amount of these carotenoids absorbed when avocado-free salad was eaten.

Hass avocados have been found to be the most densely concentrated variety of the avocado fruit. They contain the highest content of lutein and zeaxanthin and other fat-soluble nutrients. Both types of avocados are terrific for the digestive system as they contain a good variety of both soluble and insoluble fibers.

Avocados are one of the best anti-aging foods that prevent wrinkles and skin aging. The D-manno-heptulose sugar that is found in avocados has been shown to improve the skin epidermis by boosting collagen formation. Avocados also contain specific amino acids and carotenoid anti-oxidants that reduce age spots, soothe inflammation and heals scars and burns.

You, monks, should not thus cultivate the notion of impermanence, suffering and non-Self, the notion of impurity and so forth, deeming them to be the true meaning of the Dharma, as those people searching in a pool for a radiant gem did, each thinking that bits of brick, stones, grass and gravel were the jewel. You should train yourselves well in efficacious means. In every situation, constantly meditate upon the idea of the Self, the idea of the Eternal, the Bliss, and the Pure ... Those who, desirous of attaining Reality, meditatatively cultivate these ideas, namely, the ideas of the Self, the Eternal, the Bliss, and the Pure, will skilfully bring forth the jewel, just like that wise person who obtained the genuine, priceless gem, rather than worthless detritus misperceived as the real thing.

What you are is much greater than anything or anyone else you have ever yearned for. God is manifest in you in a way that He is not manifest in any other human being. Your face is unlike anyone else's, your soul is unlike anyone else's, you are sufficient unto yourself; for within your soul lies the greatest treasure of all – God.

I want to Leave Bad habits, but Association with them is Strong ???

For Elimination of Those habits We have to Put in Human Efforts.
Company of Good People, Good Meetings, Good Deeds;
You try to Associate and Practice.
Practice over a Period of Time, With Gods Grace bad Associations will Go.

It is Not correct to say that, God has not helped me, Without making any Attempts and Efforts to Go In Right Direction.

In me, the pure Awareness-Self, the universe is born, maintained and dissolved as the mind. Therefore, there are no mind and thought forms of objects apart from me the Self. In this firm experience on should ever abide.

One should ever abide as pure Siva-Self by the firm experience that there are no thought forms of creature, world and creator apart from the mind which is just an array of ripples in me the still ocean of pure Awareness-Self and therefore I am the sole Being Siva-Self only.

Even as the world, seen in my dream, is not apart from me but only my creation, even so, the world of the walking state is only a creation made by me and seen by me in the medium of my pure Awareness-Self. In this experience one should firmly abide.

Devotee: As bliss arises only from contact with objects, how can I be said to be (of the nature of) bliss?

Ramana Maharshi: The bliss of the Self will not be felt in the intellect which is distracted by desires for objects by one who does not know the Self. When the object of desire is obtained the intellect becomes steady for a moment and turns inward.
Then the bliss of the Self is reflected in it and this gives rise to a delusion that there was bliss in the object. But when other objects are desired this bliss vanishes. It is similar to the bliss which one experiences on the arrival of one’s son from a foreign country. It does not last as long as the object which seemed to be the cause of it. Further, bliss is experienced in the state of samadhi and deep sleep, even without objects. Therefore there is no bliss in objects. The Self alone is bliss. It is because the bliss of the Self alone is experienced by all, that all are proclaimed by the Vedas to be of the form of bliss.

Perhaps your hesitation is rooted in ideas about what Self-discovery will bring you...if you've heard that freedom is the same as emptiness, you may be asking yourself what is free about that?...nothing is going on in emptiness...it is not very appealing to your mind...because for the mind it means death.
But we are not inviting you to enter the mind's version of emptiness...we are leading you into direct experience of dynamic emptiness...your very own Self...the instant you discover this, you won't ever deny it again...because you are getting into your primal Being...your primal Joy, at long last, the thirst for lasting satisfaction is also quenched'.
On which side of awakening are you listening?...I am speaking directly to that which is...I am speaking from that to that itself...it doesn't need to go on a pilgrimage to meet itself...it doesn't need to do any spiritual gymnastics to be itself...why should it be frustrating?...for whom is it frustrating?...you should find out!!!...'You'...cannot be frustrated!!...you are aware of frustration arising as some energy...that within which the frustration energy is perceived isn't and can't ever be frustrated!!!...I am showing you the caviar of the Beingness, but you are turning it into cat food..."
