Ученик: Может ли йогин узнать свои прошлые жизни?
Рамана Махарши: Разве вы знаете свою настоящую жизнь, что вам хочется узнать прошлую? Найдите настоящее, тогда все остальное приложится. Даже при вашем теперешнем ограниченном знании вы так много страдаете. Зачем вам обременять себя дополнительным знанием? Чтобы больше страдать?

Мир и ум являются состояниями бытия. Высшее не является состоянием. Оно пропитывает все состояния, но не является состоянием чего либо. Оно абсолютно беспричинно, независимо, завершено в себе, вне времени и пространства, ума и материи."

The Buddha pointed out that life is suffering and that suffering is caused by ignorance and desire. In order to end suffering, one has to follow the path shown by the Buddha, it is the Noble Eightfold Path. It means right understanding - understanding the law of cause and effect; right thought - pure and kind thoughts; right speech - truthful and gentle speech; right action - good and law-abiding conduct; right livelihood - proper and purposeful occupation; right effort - striving to improve and progress; right mindfulness - mindful of thought and conduct; right meditation - practicing meditation to gain wisdom. He said, "We must guard against the three fires of greed, hatred and ignorance, as they keep burning in our minds causing sufferings. To put out the fire of greed, one must avoid the extremes of sensual indulgence and self-torture. To put out the fire of hatred, one must practice compassion. To put out the fire of ignorance, one must understand the Four Noble Truths and practice the Noble Eightfold Path." He emphasized compassion in his teaching. He told us to be concerned for each other, to help each other. He emphasized the equality to all beings and stressed on self-reliance. He said that everyone has the Buddha nature and everyone can become a Buddha provided he himself practices diligently.

The Buddha said that everyone is responsible for his own actions. Virtuous action creates good karma and non-virtuous action brings bad karma. One can be reborn in any of the six realms. The six realms are the god realm, the demi-god realm, the human realm, the animal realm, the hungry ghost realm and the hell realm. The karma of one's past determines which of the six realms he will be reborn in. He showed us the Noble Eightfold Path, by practicing which we can be freed the cycle of birth and death, and attain the supreme happiness of Nirvana

Пока вы заинтересованы в своём текущем образе жизни, вы не откажетесь от него. Неизвестное не откроет себя вам, пока вы цепляетесь за известное. Только тогда, когда вы полностью осознаете беспредельную печаль своей жизни и взбунтуетесь против неё, вы сможете найти выход.

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.)

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.

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.
