Thoughts are impediments to seeing your deepest nature. Don't give rise to any thought, and discover who you are. That ocean of eternal peace is you. What is the difficulty that we suffer from? It is that we seek peace elsewhere and do not experience that we are peace incarnate itself.

All that you are attached to, all that you love,
All that you know, someday will be gone.

Knowing this,
and that the world is your mind
Which you create, play in, and suffer from,
Is known as discrimination.

Discriminate between the Real and the Unreal,
The known is unreal and will come and go
So stay with the Unknown, the Unchanging, the Truth.

Enlightenment is not about words and thoughts and concepts which can be doubted. Enlightenment is always here. By 'here' I don't mean this present space. Here is somewhere within where mind cannot reach. Presence is always here and you are always That. This here is not the opposite of 'there'. This here is nowhere, it is your Heart. When mind is still all comes back to the Heart. All the cosmos is but a speck in your Heart. Turn mind over into this 'here' and it is lost. Then only light, wisdom and love remain and This you are not different or apart from.

The purpose of life is to be at Peace,
To love all Beings, and know who you are.
Know your Self and you know everything.
This immaculate knowledge alone is, Emptiness alone is.
How can you come out of emptiness
if there are no limits to it?
The appearance of a manifestation
is but lila of this Emptiness.
Know who you are, Here and Now,
by simply Being Quiet.

You are this moment, introduce yourself to This,
do not attach your mind to any direction.
No sadhana, no past, no future,
not even emptiness of your heart, not even space.
To be free forever introduce yourself to this Moment.
This Moment is always this Moment, It will not change.
It is Freedom, free from mind and concepts,
and is your fundamental birthright.
The best use of this Moment is to drown in It.
Keep Quiet, you are inside of the inside,
do not dwell anywhere and make no effort.
The concept of effort and practice is bondage.
Just keep Quiet, Wherever you are, Just keep Quiet.

Look within, approach with all devotion, stay as Heart.

Only adore yourself, worship your Self, and seek your Self, and the rest will be taken care of.
Avoid useless activities and pleasures.
Simply keep quiet, this is Sahaja Bhav, the natural state.

Don't keep the past in your mind. You have to love the Self, if you don't you are rejected by the Self. Self stands with extended arms waiting for you, but you look somewhere else! "Come my child, it is enough! Now come to me and I will give you rest". But you don't listen, you just look to something else. Whose fault is this? The Beloved is waiting for you, but you are looking toward the red lights.

Q: I see that I still have doubts that it can be so simple. I expect big experiences and bliss, and I expect it to be...

Papaji: Hard and difficult.

Q: Yes.

Papaji: So go the Himalayas and hang by your feet. [laughter] All kinds of trainings are still being done, because it is easier to do them than to sit quietly. You can stand on your head for an hour, or recite mantras and chant them for hours. All this is possible. The mind is deceiving you; the mind doesn't like to be quiet. The only way the mind can be beaten is not to give rise to a thought. Don't start a thought. So simple. This mind likes to engage in activities and exercises. When you are not active mentally, this is peace.

When I left him physically in 1947 he told me, ‘I am with you wherever you are’. Thatwas his promise and that is my experience. There is no one called Poonja left anymore.There is only an emptiness where he used to be. And in that emptiness there shines the ‘I’, the ‘I’ that is my reality, the ‘I’ that is my Master, the ‘I’ that he promised would bewith me wherever I am. Whenever I speak, it is not someone called Poonja who isspeaking, it is the ‘I’ that is the Maharshi who speaks, the ‘I’ which is the Self in theHeart of all beings

A man who has no concept in the mind is the sure winner of Enlightenment.

If there is peace in your mind you will find peace with everybody. If your mind is agitated you will find agitation everywhere. So first find peace within and you will see this inner peace reflected everywhere else. You are this peace! You are happiness, find out. Where else will you find peace if not within you?

No object of desire is real, no object of desire is worth your Peace.
If your house is full of desires, burn it down.

Be quiet, don't think, don't make effort.
To be bound takes effort, to be Free takes no effort.
Peace is beyond thought and effort.
Do not think and do not make effort because
This only obscures That, and will never reveal That.
This is why keeping Quiet is the key
To the storehouse of love and peace.

This Quietness is no-mind, this no-thought is Freedom.
Identify yourself as this Nothingness, as this Quietness,
And be careful not to make it an experience
Because this is mind tricking you out of it
With the trap of duality; the trap of witness and witnessed.
Being is Being, there is no witness and no witnessed.
Experiencing it is to say "I am Free,"
Which is exactly the same trap as saying "I am bound."
After letting go of object
Do not hold onto the subject either.
Let go, Be Quiet.

Stay quiet and the noisy surface dialogues will cease.
Then the substratum will rise up to the top.
It is simple.
Follow this.

The Silence that I speak about is neither meditating nor sitting quiet. The Silence that I speak about has nothing to do with meditation or talking or not talking because then the mind is still running about here and there and everywhere. What I mean by Silence is that should be no thought rising from the mind. No thought rising from your mind is Silence.

I advise you to surrender to the Teacher
and listen to him from the inside.
Then let the body become like a machine.
You don't work it, it is just working.
Find the charioteer seated in your Heart
and you will be at Peace always.

Only the Truth is and you are That! You are the unchanging Awareness in which all activity takes place. To deny this is to suffer, to know this is Freedom. It is not difficult to realize this because it is your True Nature. Simply inquire ‘Who am I?’ and watch carefully. Do not make effort and do not stir a thought. Look within, approach with all-devotion and stay as Heart. Keep vigilant and you will see that nothing will arise. This is the trick of how to keep the mind quiet and how to win Freedom. This doesn’t take time because Freedom is always Here. You simply have to watch: where does mind arise from? Where does thought come from? What is the source of this thought? Then you will see that you have always been Free and that everything has been a dream.

The one who follows the thought is also a thought! The one who follows the thought IS in thought. When you know that both are thoughts, you are home. You are not at home, you ARE home. Then allow thoughts to arise and allow them to be followed. You remain as That unmoved and unconcerned Being. This is the highest understanding.

When you do not stir any thought from the mind ground, without moving, without moving the mind, without starting a single thought - in an instant of time you are free.

We are looking for freedom. What is freedom?

It is not in anything objective. It is neither the creation, nor the creator of this universe, nor the God who is looking after preservation, nor destruction. It is none of that. It is neither the sun, nor the moon, nor the stars, nor the wind. Those are not freedom. No object is freedom. Go on rejecting everything objective from the mind. Freedom is nothing that the mind can conceive or perceive or understand. Finally you will arrive at that which cannot be rejected. Go on rejecting everything that can be rejected, all objects. Get rid of all objectification.

Finally, when you see nothing more to be rejected, the mind will be quiet. Mind will be no-mind: That cannot be described. All description belongs to the objective world only and consciousness cannot be objectified. In the beginning when there was nothing there was consciousness - total consciousness - where no objects and no subjects existed. You are this consciousness.

Starting from the beginning, before the beginning, you are this consciousness. And this consciousness became all that you see. You are this consciousness itself. There are millions of kinds of manifestation existing in consciousness and you have become all this. You are the fountain of all this creation.

For this you do not have to exert or make effort, or search for any way or method or practice. Somehow you have to arrive here. How can you do it? Through adoration of the wisdom of the Self. That s consciousness. Adore your own consciousness with wisdom and you have achieved what you are aspiring for here and now.

The scriptures speak of three Holy rivers Within.
These are Existence, Consciousness, and Bliss.
Being beyond thought or effort
they cannot be objectified or subjectified.
They are so dear, so near, behind the retina and before the breath.
You need not see This, you are it.

With no expectation from the memory, point the mind towards it's Source. Stop thinking, and wait for the result from the other side.

Only when you possess or attain something
does the concept and fear of losing arise.
Only Self cannot be lost.

If you have attained peace,
mind will come back; just let it come
just watch from where it arises.
Allow the mind to run, but directing it to Now,
do not let it land in the graveyard of the past.
Clinging to the past is keeping evil association.
When you meditate all these patterns will leave you.
The trick is to keep full attention on who wants to meditate,
because when the house is full, the thieves will not enter.
Don't expect and do not search and you will find it.
