For one who has realised the essence of Brahman, there is no reaching out for sense-objects any more. If there is, then one has not realized Brahman because the senses still have an outgoing tendency.

Purifying your food purifies your memory . When your memory is purified , your consciousness is purified. When the consciousness is purified , all the blessings of life are showered on you.

Just as the person who regards a rope as a snake is overcome by fear, so also one considering oneself as the ego (Jiva) is overcome by fear. The ego-centric individuality in us regains fearlessness by realising that It is not a Jiva but is Itself the Supreme Soul.

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.

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.

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.

The body is worn out, hair has turned grey; the mouth has become toothless and in old age a stick is needed for support; yet the person is still full of desires. There is truly no end to desires.

When the force of the desire for the Truth blossoms, selfish desires wither away, just like darkness vanishes before the radiance of the light of dawn.

Converting the ordinary vision into one of knowledge one should view the world as Brahman. That is the noblest vision. One should direct ones vision to That alone, where all distinction of the seer, sight and the seen ceases.

In the dream state, even though there is no contact with the external world, the mind alone projects the entire dream-universe of enjoyer etc. Similarly, the waking-state is no different. All this (world of myriad phenomena), is but a projection of the mind.

If one knows oneself not as the individual but as the supreme Self, one becomes free from fear. The entire universe is truly the Self. There exists nothing at all other than the Self. The enlightened person sees everything in the world as his own Self, just as one views earthenware jars and pots as nothing but clay.

Direct the mind resolutely towards God, restraining the senses in their various seats, and looking on the state of the body as a matter of indifference. Realize your oneness with God, remaining continually intent on identifying with its nature, and joyfully drink the bliss of God within, for what use is there in other empty things?
