Be as simple as you can be; you will be astonished to see how uncomplicated and happy your life can become.

Live each moment completely and the future will take care of itself. Fully enjoy the wonder and beauty of each moment.

All things are being carried on by the omnipotent power of a Supreme God. Instead of submitting ourselves to It, why should we always be planning, ‘We should do this or that’. Knowing that the train carries all the load, why should we, traveling therein, suffer by carrying our small bundle on our heads, instead of leaving it on the train and being happy. (Gems From Bhagavan, Chapter 5)

" The entire spectrum of the experimental world is what I am and even beyond that!...Let me repeat this!...it is not that there's an 'I'...that is one with all the other 'I's...in the world...no, it's that the 'I' as a psycological entity, which carries a feeling of independent doership, is not found...and in its place a sense of Unity appears.
What's realised is that only the Self is here...only the pure Self is here...there are not two chairs in your heart, a big chair for the big Self and a little chair for the little self...there's just the Self, you see?...it's from here that a sense of 'other' forms...all are forms of the one Self.
Once this union with the Self has become your own reality, what you used to perceive as another person will have blurred to nothing more than a unique fragrance of the Self...you will perceive the same Self in all beings.
There is a saying, 'I am not seeing the world as it is, I am seeing the world as I am'...in other words, when you are the Self then the 'other' is also the Self, because the Self does not see 'other'...."

“The Lord responds to all and works for all.... He fulfills any sincere desire of the devotee. Seldom do men realize how often God heeds their prayers. “He is not partial to a few, but listens to everyone who approaches Him trustingly. His children should ever have implicit faith in the loving-kindness of their Omnipresent Father.

Forget the past. The vanished lives of all men are dark with many shames. Human conduct is ever unreliable until anchored in the Divine. Everything in future will improve if you are making a spiritual effort now.”

“Above everything else, be loyal to God. Devote more time to seeking Him. And be less concerned over lesser duties which, someday, won’t exist anymore anyway. In those lesser preoccupations lies the greatest delusion. Never look upon them as, in themselves, important. Nothing is so pressingly important as your daily tryst with God.”

“True friendship is broad and inclusive. Selfish attachment to a single individual, excluding all others, inhibits the development of divine friendship. Extend the boundaries of the glowing kingdom of your love, gradually including within them your family, your neighbors, your community, your country, all countries, in short, all sentient creatures. Be a cosmic friend, imbued with kindness and affection for all of God’s creation, scattering love everywhere.”

Khecari Mudra


(43-50) When prana flows naturally through the two nadis then there is no obstacle to khecari mudra. This is beyond doubt. --When the prana current enters the sushumna between ida and pingala then khecari mudra begins to become meaningful. --Between ida and pingala there is an unsupplied [i.e., with prana] space. It is there where the tongue performs khecari mudra. --The khechari mudra in which the nectar from the "moon" is collected stands in high esteem with Siva [who is kala, nada and bindu]. The incomparable, divine sushumna is blocked off by the inverted tongue. --The sushumna will also be closed when the prana current is suspended [by entering the sushumna]. This is the perfect khecari mudra that leads to samadhi [unmani, mindlessness]. --Between the eyebrows is the seat of Siva [of higher consciousness]. There conceptional thinking is absorbed. This state is samadhi [turiya] where death has no access. --One should practice khecari mudra until the state of samadhi [Yoga nidra. Yoga sleep] is achieved. He who succeeds in this will conquer death. --After mind has been freed from clinging [withdrawn from conceptualizing objects] it should not produce further thoughts. Then it resembles an empty pot surrounded and filled with space [akasha, ether].

Question : How can the terrible fear of death be overcome?

Ramana Maharshi : When does that fear seize you? Does it come when you do not see your body, say, in dreamless sleep? It haunts you only when you are fully `awake' and perceive the world, including your body. If you do not see these and remain your pure Self, as in dreamless sleep, no fear can touch you. If you trace this fear to the object, the loss of which gives rise to it, you will find that that object is not the body, but the mind which functions in it. Many a man would be only too glad to be rid of his diseased body and all the problems and inconvenience it creates for him if continued awareness were vouchsafed to him. It is the awareness, the consciousness, and not the body, he fears to lose. Men love existence because it is eternal awareness, which is their own Self. Why not then hold on to the pure awareness right now, while in the body, and be free from all fear?

During Rama's rule, women were never widowed and had not to mourn for that reason. There was no fear from serpents nor from diseases. The world never suffered from the depredations of thieves and no disaster overtook the people. There was never the unfortunate situation of old men surviving, while the young and the children died. All were devoted to the thought and worship of Ram. The clouds rained in season and according to necessity. The subjects were all devoted to Dharma (Natural Law) and to the rules and regulations of Varna (class) and Ashrama (stages of life). Ram looked upon his subjects as his own children and they considered him as their father."
(Adhyatma Ramayan, Yuddha Kandam 16, 27-30

To dwell in the here and now does not mean you never think about the past or responsibly plan for the future. The idea is simply not to allow yourself to get lost in regrets about the past or worries about the future. If you are firmly grounded in the present moment, the past can be an object of inquiry, the object of your mindfulness and concentration. you can attain many insights by looking into the past. But you are still grounded in the present moment
