Avadhuta Gita of Dattatreya

See More
He who has realized the innate, unborn, incomprehensible Self
Never becomes stained while enjoying the fruits of his desires;
He remains always free of stain, free of karma.
The ascetic, concentrated on the Self, is never bound.

Dvitiyodhyayah
Chapter 2, Verse 30

Wherever a yogi may meet his end --
Whether beside a holy river or in an outcaste's hut --
His births are through;
He merges in Brahman.

A yogi has no particular path;
He simply renounces imagining things.
His mind then ceases of its own accord,
And the perfect state just naturally occurs.

One may express in speech
The destiny of those devoted to actions,
But the destiny of those established in yoga
Cannot be told; they go beyond speech.

The destiny of those devoted to action
Is the result of their thought at the end of their life;
But the destiny of a yogi established in Unity
Is not determined by his thought at the end.

The space inside a jar merges in the space outside
When the jar is destroyed;
The yogi, when the body's destroyed,
Merges into the universal Consciousness - his own true Self.

Meister Eckhart

See More
The soul is no different from Christ, except in that it has a born nature and a created nature. Christ does not have this in his eternal person. If the soul shed her born nature and her created nature, she would be all the same, just the essence itself. I say, put off your creature; it is easy to shed the creature, for this is a labor of love and the greater the pain the greater the joy.

Meister Eckhart

See More
God is not only the Father of all good things but he is the mother of all things as well. He is father, for he is the cause of all things and their creator. He is the mother of all things as well, for when creatures have gotten their being from him he still stays with creatures to keep them in being. If God did not remain with creatures after they had started their own life, they would most speedily fall out of being. Falling from God means falling from being into nothingness. It is not so with other causes; they can with safety quit the things they cause when these things have gotten being of their own. When the house exists its builder can depart, for it is not the builder alone that makes the house; the materials of it he draws from nature. But God provides the creature with the whole of what it is, with form ss well as matter, so he is bound to stay with it, or it will promptly drop out of existence.

Some people want to see God with their eyes as they see a cow and to love him as they love their cow - they love their cow for the milk and cheese and profit it makes them. This is how it is with people who love God for the sake of outward wealth or inward comfort. They do not rightly love God when they love him for their own advantage. Indeed, I tell you the Truth, any object you have on your mind, however good, will be a barrier between you and the inmost Truth.

I have often said that a person who wishes to begin a good life should be like a man who draws a circle. Let him get the center in the right place and keep it so and the circumference will be good. In other words, let a man first learn to fix his heart on God and then his good deeds will have virtue; but if a man's heart is unsteady, even the great things he does will be of small advantage.

MARRIAGE - CHOOSING CONSCIOUSLY

Questioner: My question is about marriage and divorce. I’ve been married for 25 years. There were many occasions where I felt like divorce, but then it has been a wonderful experience for me when I really fell in love. But what I see today, many youngsters don’t want to marry, and those who are married are getting divorced. Would you like to throw some light on this situation, Sadhguru?

Sadhguru: What you only intended, they are successful with! You need to understand the institution of marriage. One aspect of it is about bringing a certain sanctity to the simple basic needs that every human being has. There are physical needs, psychological needs, economic needs, emotional needs, and social needs – a variety of needs. To fulfill all these needs, we set up an institution called marriage where all this can be conducted in a sensible manner. Marriage is to bring some organization, some aesthetic, some stability, because man and woman coming together naturally used to bring fresh life.

The nature of human life, the nature of human offspring is such that because of the possibilities that a human being carries, compared to any other creature, it is the most helpless life and needs the maximum amount of support. You could leave a puppy on the street – as long as it gets food, it grows up into a good dog. But not so with human beings – they need not just physical support but a variety of supports, and above all, a stable situation. When they are 18, they will debate whether they should get married or not, because the physical body is asking for freedom. At that time, everyone questions if marriage is really needed, and whether we can just live whichever way we want. But when you were three years of age, you valued a stable marriage immensely – isn’t it so? Not yours – your parents’.

When you were three, four years of age, you were 100% for marriage. When you become 45, 50, again you are 100% for marriage. Between 18 and 35, you are questioning the whole institution.

If at the time when the physical body is dominant, you give in to it, you will question every institution. This is hormone-fired freedom. Your intelligence has been hijacked by hormones, so you question the fundamentals of everything. I am not saying marriage is the thing, but do you have a better alternative? We have not come up with a better alternative, because a stable situation is a must for a child.

If your whims and fancies change, if your emotions change, do not get into such situations. It is neither compulsory nor is it necessary for everyone to get married and have children. But if you get into it, and especially if you have children, you must understand, it is a minimum 20-year project. That is if they do well. If they don’t do well, it is a lifelong project. If you want to get into such projects, at least 20 years, there must be a commitment to create a stable situation. Otherwise, you should not get into such projects. Do not get into a project, drop it halfway and walk away.

If you do not like that, do not start the project – go for short-term projects. They have their benefits and they have their problems. It is your choice, but at least choose consciously. You do not have to get married because everyone is getting married. You do not have to talk about marriage and divorce in the same breath as if they come together. No one thought of divorce in this country until recently.

If it so happens something went entirely wrong between two people, there is no way to fix it, and they have to separate, it is unfortunate, but it happens. You do not have to plan it at the time of wedding.

Chapter Seven

17. I am of the nature devoid of the senses. I am of the nature devoid of all. I am devoid of bondage and liberation. This is the libation to Brahman.
18. I am of the nature of the all-blissful. I am a mass of the all-blissful. I am eternal Consciousness alone. This is the libation to Brahman.
19. I am also beyond the range of words; words or mind do not exist in the least. I am also Consciousness-Bliss. This is the libation to Brahman.
20. I am of the nature of fullness, always. I am happiness, always. Always, I am of the nature that cannot be conceived. This is the libation to Brahman.

Chapter Seven

21. I am of the nature of satisfaction at all times. I am only all-bliss. I am of the nature of the complete Void. This is the libation to Brahman.
22. I am ever of the nature of myself. I am one who is supremely blissful. I myself am only one. This is the libation to Brahman.
23. I am free. I am of the nature of Liberation. I am the supreme, complete Silence. I am of the nature of complete Liberation. This is the libation to Brahman.
24. I am ever of the nature of the Truth. I am ever one who is of the turiya (the fourth state beyond waking, dream, and deep sleep). I am of the nature of turiyatita (transcending the fourth state). This is the libation to Brahman.
25. I am only Truth and Knowledge. I am only Truth and Bliss. I am of the nature that is indeterminate. This is the libation to Brahman.
26. I am ever of the nature of the unborn. I am without desire. I am untainted. I am of the nature of Brahman— Knowledge. This is the libation to Brahman.
27. Libation to Brahman has thus been so told; this is my explanation. Whoever hears this even once, he himself becomes Brahman.

"Все эти веселые разговоры в духе "new age", книжек из цикла "прикольное просветление" исчезнут, когда ты РЕАЛЬНО начнешь понимать, что всё: шутки кончились, все друзья с подругами, слова, путешествия, сплетни, истории, тексты, теории и философии остались позади...

И вот – есть только ты, сделанный из кармы, и есть Бездна…
И кто-то один из вас должен исчезнуть.

Надеюсь, ты догадываешься кто?!...."

"Вот Путь, чтобы летать вместе с ветром,

Стать каплей росы в тишине,

Гуляя по радуге, плыть с облаками,

В небе ночном просто стать вспышкой света,

И звездным туманом вечно парить

среди бездны Вселенной…"

Ты всегда присутствуешь как внутри, так и снаружи. Ты - то Высшее Блаженство, которое всегда и всюду.

"Дзогчен проникает прямо в суть просветления, состояние изначальной мудрости.
Вы ищите внутри себя и обнаруживаете состояние ясной и открытой пустоты.
Это природа ума.
Не ищите где-то ещё.
Все понятия растворяются в одном единственном состоянии, как воды сотни рек сливаются под одним мостом."
