"Воистину, Я – высший Брахман, неуничтожимый, известный как Васудэва – кто с уверенностью так размышляет, тот свободным станет

"О, разум! Медитируй с убеждением: "Я воистину высший Брахман, ибо сущность моя – чистое сознание, и нет для меня привязанностей

"Состояние погружения в неконцептуальную осознанность выше любых религиозных ограничений, так как они – суть продукт ума.

Не нужна ни санкхья, ни шайва, ни панчаратра или джайанизм, мимамсака или другие школы. Лишь накопление духовного опыта пробуждает сознание.

Я – сознание чистое.

Я – то, одно неуничтожимое"


Шанкарачарья «Вивека Чудамани»

Он принимает подобно ребенку все условия, что окружают его, благодаря желаниям других.

Также как невинное дитя увлечено своей игрой без беспокойства о голоде, жажде или физическом страдании, так и мудрец поглощен игрой своего собственного «Я» без эго сознания и постоянно наслаждается в Атмане.

Нет кодекса законов или правил поведения, обязывающих его, ибо он совершенно свободен. Хотя и спящий на земле, подобно ребенку или сумасшедшему, он остается всегда утвержденным в Веданте. Мать-земля есть цветущее ложе, на которое он ложится. Он спит без страха в лесу или на кладбище, ибо его развлечение и удовольствие – в Брахмане. Он, кто есть всеобщее Я, принимает по желанию бесчисленные формы и имеет бесчисленные переживания. В одном месте он ведет себя, словно безумец, в другом – подобно ученому, в третьем – подобно обманутому. И снова, в одном месте он движется, словно человек мира, в другом – как царь, еще в другом – как нищий, питающийся с ладони из-за отсутствия чаши для подаяния. В одном месте он обожаем, в другом – хулим. Таким образом, он живет везде, и Истина позади него не может быть осознана другими. Хотя у него нет богатств, он – вечно в Блаженстве. Хотя другие могут и не помочь ему, он могуч силой. Хотя он может не поесть, он вечно удовлетворен. Он смотрит на все вещи беспристрастно. Хотя и действуя, он – не действующий, хотя и питающийся, он – не тот, кто ест; хотя он имеет тело, он – бестелесен. Хотя и обособленный, он есть Единое Неделимое Целое

Искренние речи не изящны, изящные речи не искренни. Добрый не красноречив, красноречивый не добр. Мудрый не образован, образованный не мудр. Мудрец не накопительствует. Но чем больше он делает для других, тем больше прибавляется ему. Чем больше он дает другим, тем богаче становится сам. Путь неба - в принесении пользы без причинения вреда. Путь мудреца - в деянии без противостояния

The danger in life is not to put your goals too high and never be able to reach it , it's to put you goals too low and be able to reach it

В Лайе самадхи достигается за счет естественного созерцания без усилий, а не метода. Также, в отличие от других видов йоги, в Лайе нирвикальпа-самадхи - не самоцель, а всего лишь промежуточная ступень для достижения более высоких - сахаджа-самадхи и саруба-самадхи. Саруба-самадхи предполагает просветление не только ума, но и энергии, тела, проявляющиеся как звук, свет, божества (нада, джьоти, дэвата). Практика с усилием на этом уровне прекращается и становится "не практикой" - "не методом" - "анупайя", "не медитацией", так как любое усилие является помехой.

Я никогда не был рожден и Я никогда не умру. И при этом Я не исполняю никаких действий – ни хороших, ни плохих. Я – тот чистый Брахман, лишенный каких бы то ни было качеств. Как в таком случае для меня может быть связанность или освобождение?

Так как Брахман вездесущий, самосияющий, недвижимый, цельный и непрерывный, то я не вижу никакого разнообразия. Как он может быть внутри или вовне.

When you have learned, through discipline, to simplify your life, and so practiced the mindfulness of meditation, and through it loosened the hold of aggression, clinging, and negativity on your whole being, the wisdom of insight can slowly dawn. And in the all-revealing clarity of its sunlight, this insight can show you, distinctly and directly, both the subtlest workings of your own mind and the nature of reality

The birth of a man is the birth of his sorrow. The longer he lives, the more stupid he becomes, because his anxiety to avoid unavoidable death becomes more and more acute. What bitterness! He lives for what is always out of reach! His thirst for survival in the future makes him incapable of living in the present

In general the teaching of the Buddha is very vast and profound, it is not so simple as to grasp it in one time. If we had to summarise the complete teaching of Buddha we would see that all is included in two main points, that is:cause no harm to any sentient beings,always try to benefit all sentient beings;or, if we are not able to benefit others we should at least avoid all harmful thoughts and actions.Buddha Himself summarised in a few lines the essence of His teachings: abandon all harming actions and all negative actions, practice all positive actions completely and control your own mind. This is the teaching of Buddha

Manjushi's advice to Lama Tsongkhapa, from The Heart of the Path

See More
To train your mind in the actual body of the graduated path to enlightenment, you should attempt to purify your obstacles and accumulate merit, which are the necessary conditions. Then, you should make single-pointed requests to the guru inseparable from the deity in order to receive blessings within your heart. If you attempt to strongly and continuously practice in this way every day, realizations will come without any difficulty

When we are humble everyone is a potential best friend and our generosity naturally grows. We want to do things, to help out. A wonderful Zen tradition is called "inji-gyo," or secret good deeds. The virtue gained through performing a secret good deed is believed to be immense. So, in a monastery, if one watched closely, you might see a monk secretly mending another's robes or taking down someone's laundry and folding it before the rain comes. In our temple I often find chocolate spontaneously appearing in my mailbox, or a beautiful poem, unsigned. This year the Easter Bunny visited our Sunday service, leaving chocolate eggs under everyone's cushions, even the one prepared for a visiting Zen master. Sometimes the bathrooms are miraculously cleaned overnight. And flowers spontaneously appear in a neighbor's yard, thanks to the children in the temple. Secret good deeds. They are so much fun. In their doing you can't help but smile

Few people are capable of wholehearted commitment, and that is why so few people experience a real transformation through their spiritual practice. It is a matter of giving up our own viewpoints, of letting go of opinions and preconceived ideas, and instead following the Buddha's guidelines. Although this sounds simple, in practice most people find it extremely difficult. Their ingrained viewpoints, based on deductions derived from cultural and social norms, are in the way.We must also remember that heart and mind need to work together. If we understand something rationally but don't love it, there is no completeness for us, no fulfillment. If we love something but don't understand it, the same applies. If we have a relationship with another person, and we love the person but don't understand him or her, the relationship is incomplete; if we understand that person but don't love him or her, it is equally unfulfilling. How much more so on our spiritual path. We have to understand the meaning of the teaching and also love it. In the beginning our understanding will only be partial, so our love has to be even greater

Always recognize the dreamlike qualities of life and reduce attachment and aversion. Practice good-heartedness toward all beings. Be loving and compassionate, no matter what others do to you. What they will do will not matter so much when you see it as a dream. The trick is to have positive intention during the dream. This is the essential point. This is true spirituality
