Many paths lead from
The foot of the mountain,
But at the peak
We all gaze at the
Single bright moon.

Ignorance is nothing but a superimposition of the non-self. The destruction of ignorance is liberation. Darkness cannot remove darkness. Wisdom, being incompatible with ignorance, puts it to flight.

The illusion of Samsara is due solely to an illusory notion and is not an absolute reality.

My refuge is neither my mother, nor my father, nor sons, nor brothers, nor others. My supreme refuge shall be the foot placed by my master on my head.

Robert Adams: T-57, "You Have to Have Bhakti" :

S: Robert, I want to ask you a question. Is it possible to realize the Self through a Jnani without a body?

R: Yes.

S: It is?

R: Yes, it is. Because the Jnani is all-pervading. And if you focus your attention on his presence, you'll make contact, if you are sincere enough.

S: So even at a distance one could just focus on your picture for example.

R: It doesn't make any difference.
The only difference is your mind.
Your mind will tell you all sorts of stories.
But if you do not listen to your mind, then the Jnani is everywhere.

People are still getting healings from Ramana Maharshi.
And they claim that he comes into their lives and solves their problems.

For a Jnani there's no time and space.
That's been obliterated.
There is only the Self as omnipresence, so he or she is everywhere.

Of course it's up to you to exude the right energy from yourself, so you make contact.

It's just like grace.
Gods grace is everywhere, but it's up to you to make contact with it.

And of course the easiest way is through devotion, through love.

I am free from changes such as birth, thinness, senility and death; for I am other than the body. I am unattached to the objects of the senses, such as sound and taste; for I am without sense-organs.

The way to You
lies clearly in my heart
and cannot be seen or known to the mind.
As my words turn to silence,
Your sweetness surrounds me.

When you run after your thoughts, you are like a dog chasing a stick: every time a stick is thrown, you run after it. Instead, be like a lion who, rather than chasing after the stick, turns to face the thrower. One only throws a stick at a lion once.

I am full of Bliss, Knowledge and the realization of the Self. I am far aloof from any thought of the objective. I am delighted at heart by that which is not objective.

I am the Lord of lords. I am devoid of even a touch of jealousy and hatred. I am He that fulfills the desired object for those who are bent on realizing the goal.

The ignorant long for results and engage in action with the idea of doership and enjoyership. The ignorant are deluded and think, 'I act', 'I cause others to act', 'I enjoy', 'I causes others to enjoy', and so on.

Approaching the Self
is like walking on a razors edge, two cannot go there,
you can't even bring your mind or thought.
So the only one who can help you is Self.
Anything that touches this flame becomes flame.
Touch a Sage and you become a Sage,
knowing Self you see only Self
and this Self is your teacher.

Seeking is the movement away from the awareness that your life is already complete, just as it is.

Samsara is mind turned outwardly, lost in its projections. Nirvana is mind turned inwardly, recognizing its nature.

Upon discovering truth,
the natural love one has for oneself
expands until it encompasses the whole world.
This Love removes the ego.

But do not ask me where I am going,

I have a thousand brilliant lies
For the question:
How are you?

I have a thousand brilliant lies
For the question:
What is God?

If you think that the Truth can be known
From words,

If you think that the Sun and the Ocean
Can pass through that tiny opening Called the mouth,

O someone should start laughing!
Someone should start wildly Laughing Now!

One cannot wait for vairagya (dispassion) to come. It is meaningless to think that one can satiate all desires and then take to spirituality, because desires are endless. They are like the waves of the ocean. They will appear one after another. A person was standing by the ocean for a very long time. Another person who was watching him asked, "You have been standing here for a long time. What are you doing?" He replied, "Friend, I want to take a bath in the ocean, but I am waiting for the waves to subside so that I can bathe peacefully." Desiring to lead a spiritual life after satisfying all one's desires is like being that person who wanted to bathe in the ocean only after all the waves had subsided.

Silent mind means to keep quiet temporarily. It is simply a suppression of the objects in the mind. It can happen many times, but it will not last.

Still mind is also temporary. Meditation or concentration can result in still mind. It is like a flame of a candle. When there is no breeze, the flame will be still. When wind comes, the candle will flicker and go out.

Still mind will be blown away as soon as it encounters the wind of another thought....

Love of God will grow and at the same time the mind will become calm to the extent that one is freed from the thirst for sense pleasures. All the pleasures of the world will become trivial and distasteful if even a particle of His Love is experienced.

If you wish to attain real happiness, you must sacrifice all worldly pleasures, all attachment for fleeting joys, and direct the whole energy of your mind toward God. The more you advance toward Him, the greater the bliss you will realize. The more your mind becomes attached to the world and to sense-enjoyments, the more will you suffer.

Lord Krishna said:
The Lord (Ishwar) dwells in the hearts and mind of all beings but but all individuals are hounded by the illusions of the physical world.
One should try to seek the refuge of the Lord with deep sense of devotion, so that by his grace one can get the everlasting peace of mind.

God dwells in you, as you, and you don't have to 'do' anything to be God-realized or Self-realized, it is already your true and natural state. Just drop all seeking, turn your attention inward, and sacrifice your mind to the One Self radiating in the Heart of your very being. For this to be your own presently lived experience, Self-Inquiry is the one direct and immediate way.

The mind can be compared to a pendulum. Like the incessant movement of a clock's pendulum, the mind swings intermittently from happiness to sorrow and back again. Real peace and happiness can be experienced only when the mind stops swinging altogether. From that stillness ensues real peace and bliss, and this state is truly the essence of life.

The Way is perfect like vast space,
With nothing wanting, nothing superfluous.
It is indeed due to making choice
That its suchness is lost sight of.
