‎" Through trust in the Master's words...the cataract of mistaken identity is peeled away...revealing the indivisible Self...and so falls away the weight of ego-centred conditioning...arrogance...pride...fear and suffering...one comes to see...not the Self...but purely from the Self...the transience of the phenomenal world..."

Question.: It has been definitely stated that so long as there is the least trace of the ‘I-am-the-doer’ idea, there can be no realization, but is it possible for a householder who earnestly desires Liberation to fulfill his duties without this idea?

Bhagavan .: There is no principle that actions can be performed only on the basis of the ‘I-am-the-doer’ idea, and therefore there is no reason to ask whether they can be performed and the duties discharged without that idea.

To take a common example, an accountant working all day in his office and scrupulously attending to his duties might seem to the spectator to be shouldering all the financial responsibilities of the institution. But, knowing that he is not personally affected by the intake or outgoings, he remains unattached and free from the ‘I-am-the doer’ feeling in doing his work, while at the same time he does it perfectly well.

In the same way, it is quite possible for the wise householder who earnestly seeks liberation to discharge his duties in life (which, after all, are his destiny) without any attachment, regarding himself merely as an instrument for the purpose. Such activity is not an obstacle on the path of Knowledge nor does Knowledge prevent a man from discharging his duties in life.

Knowledge and activity are never mutually antagonistic and the realization of one does not impede performance of the other, nor performance of one the realization of the other

Question: What is reality?

Bhagavan: Reality must be always real. It is not with forms and names. That which underlies these is the reality. It underlies limitations, being itself limitless. It is not bound. It underlies unrealities, itself being real. Reality is that which is. It is as it is. It transcends speech. It is beyond the expressions `existence, non-existence', etc.
The reality which is the mere consciousness that remains when ignorance is destroyed along with knowledge of objects, alone is the Self [atma]. In that Brahma-swarupa [real form of Brahman], which is abundant Self-awareness, there is not the least ignorance.

The reality which shines fully, without misery and without a body, not only when the world is known but also when the world is not known, is your real form [nija-swarupa].

The radiance of consciousness-bliss, in the form of one awareness shining equally within and without, is the supreme and blissful primal reality. Its form is silence and it is declared by jnanis to be the final and unobstructable state of true knowledge [jnana]. Know that jnana alone is non-attachment; jnana alone is purity; jnana is the attainment of God; jnana which is devoid of forgetfulness of Self alone is immortality; jnana alone is everything

Question .: Is it necessary to take sannyasa (a vow of renunciation) in order to attain Self-realization?

Bhagavan .: ‘Sannyasa’ means renouncing one’s individuality, not shaving one’s head and putting on ochre robes. A man may be a householder but if he does not think he is one he is a sannyasin. On the other hand, he may wear ochre robes and wander about, but so long as he thinks he is a sannyasin he is not one. To think about one’s renunciation defeats the purpose of renouncing

Question.: Isn’t life in the world a hindrance? Don’t all the books advocate renunciation?

Bhagavan .: The world is only in the mind. It does not speak out, saying: ‘I am the world’. If it did, it would have to be always present even in your sleep. Since it is not present in sleep, it is impermanent. Being impermanent, it has no reality. Having no reality, it is easily subdued by the Self. The Self alone is permanent. Renunciation is non-identification of the Self with the non-self. On the disappearance of ignorance, the non-self ceases to exist. That is true renunciation

Question : How does activity help? Doesn’t it simply increase the already heavy load upon us that we have to get rid of?

Bhagavan .: Action performed unselfishly purifies the mind and helps it to fix itself in meditation

Subhuti, how does a person first feel a need to save beings?

He becomes aware of that kind of wise insight
which shows him beings as on their way the destroying themselves.
Great compassion then takes hold of him. He surveys the world,
and what he sees fills him with agitation. ... So such a person
radiates great friendliness and compassion over all these beings
and gives his attention to them, thinking,

"I would like to save these beings, I would like to release them from all their sufferings."

But he does not make this desire into an attachment,
for even he never turns his back on full enlightenment

What the great Buddha has praised as pure,
the state that is called immediate,
there exists nothing equal to that state.

-Sutta Nipata 226

Should we free our mind from attachment to all "things,"
the Path becomes clear; otherwise,
we put ourselves under restraint.

-The Sutra of Hui Neng

From pure behavior comes self-power,
which frees a man from (many) dangers;
pure conduct, like a ladder,
enables us to climb to heaven.

-Fo-Sho-Hing-Tsan-King

With a free mind,
In no debt,
Enjoy what has been given to you.

Someone who is about to admonish another must realize within himself five qualities before doing so [that he may be able to say], thus:

"In due season will I speak, not out of season.
In truth I will speak, not in falsehood.
Gently will I speak, not harshly.
To his profit will I speak, not to his loss.
With kindly intent will I speak, not in anger."

- "Vinaya Pitaka," translated by F.S. Woodward

"Our findings contradict the current view that antibodies are absolutely required to survive infection with viruses like VSV (vesicular stomatitis virus), and establish an unexpected function for B cells as custodians of macrophages in antiviral immunity," said Dr. Uldrich H. von Andrian from Harvard Medical School. "It will be important to further dissect the role of antibodies and interferons in immunity against similar viruses that attack the nervous system, such as rabies, West Nile virus, and Encephalitis."

As explained by Dr. Russell Blaylock in a recent interview with Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, vaccines not only do not work as advertised, but they actually damage the body's innate immunity. Rather than teach the body how to respond to infections, vaccines actually inhibit the immune system's ability to produce TH2-type cytokines, and suppress cellular immunity, which is how the body protects itself against deadly viruses and bacteria.
