Here, start living moment to moment totally and intensely, joyfully and playfully — and you will see that nothing goes out of control; that your intelligence becomes sharper; that you become younger; that your love becomes deeper. And when you go out into the world, wherever you go, spread life, playfulness, joy, as far away as possible — to every nook and corner of the earth.

Without love, and will inspired by love, nothing can be done. Merely talking about Reality without doing anything about it is self-defeating. There must be love in relation between the person who says ‘I am’ and the observer of that ‘I am’.

You may say you have two bodies; the personal and the universal. The personal comes and goes, the universal is always with you. Entire creation is your universal body. You are so blinded by what is personal, that you do not see the universal….
Knowing yourself as the dweller in both bodies you will disown nothing. All the universe will be your concern; every living thing you will love and help most tenderly and wisely. There will be no clash of interests between you and others. All exploitation will cease absolutely. Your every action will be beneficial, every moment will be a blessing.

Do not seek after what you yearn for, seek after the source of the yearning itself.

When we start to suffer, it tells us something very valuable. It means that we are not seeing the truth, and we are not relating from the truth. It’s a beautiful pointer. It never fails.

Temporal life or worldliness means an attempt
to make oneself happy at the cost and sacrifice
of others, being totally indifferent to others
welfare and miseries. Your natural happiness is
not acquired by any effort or means. Temporary
things can only bring temporary happiness.
Knowing the Self brings Eternal happiness to all
because It is Eternal. In the temporal there is
endless misery and in the Self there is
boundless and unexcelled Eternal joy.

Paramartha means [1] to realise the Origin of
the whole universe, [2] to enjoy one's own
natural happiness without making any effort, [3]
to make all people similarly and equally happy,
and [4] the Perfection of Material Science. It is
the highest attainment of Absolute Reality.

Your eyes are the windows through which I can gaze into the heart of God.
My eyes are the mirror in which you can see God reflected inside your own being.

People come to me and they say, "We want to know God -- where is God?"
Now, the question is just absurd. WHERE IS HE NOT?
You ask WHERE He is; you must be dead blind. Can't you see Him? Only He is! In the tree and in the bird, in the animal, in the river, in the mountain, in man, in woman... everywhere He is. He has taken so many forms to surround you, to dance around you. From everywhere He is saying "Hello!" and you don't listen. From everywhere He is calling you. From everywhere He is inviting you: "Come to me!" But you are somehow keeping your eyes closed, or you have got blinders on -- you don't look anywhere.

You know quite well, deep within you, that there is only a single magic, a single power, a single salvation…and that is called loving. Well, then, love your suffering. Do not resist it, do not flee from it. It is your aversion that hurts, nothing else.

To the ignorant, the sense 'I am' means 'I am the body.'
To the Saint, 'I am' means 'I am Presence.'
To the Sage, 'I am' means 'I am the Absolute.'

Satsang is like a beauty parlour which will remove all your wrinkles because it will show you your true face. The price here is not to think. Anybody can pay the price.

Silence is the most potent form of work. The guru is quiet and peace prevails in all. His silence is more vast and more emphatic than the scriptures put together. In fact the guru is always within you. The guru’s silence is the loudest teaching. It is also grace in its highest form. Silence is the true teaching. It is the perfect teaching.

I am not interested in communicating something to you, I am interested in communion. Communication means my mind talking to your mind. Communion means I am not a mind, you are not a mind - just your heart melting into my heart, no words.

Remember the person who wants to trust is the ego.
So you don’t want to do any of those things.
You just want to awaken and you don’t even want to do that.
Just be your Self, be your Self.
Ask yourself,
«Who wants to trust?
Who wants to awaken?»
and you will see it’s all your ego, it’s ‘I’.
‘I’ want to do this, ‘I’ want to do that, ‘I’ want an experience, ‘I’ want this.
All of that has to go.
When all of that has gone, the sun will shine by itself.

Everyone is aware of the eternal Self. He sees so many dying but still believes himself eternal. Because it is the Truth. Unwillingly the natural Truth asserts itself. The man is deluded by the intermingling of the conscious Self with the insentient body. This delusion must end.

Throw off the yoke of belief, for to arrive at the nobility of truth you must be cleansed of all borrowed knowledge till you are as innocent as the day before you were born. You must forge from within your longing a fiery sword of discrimination, unsheathed from the past—starting now on this hill we stand upon, determined to never again take anything secondhand, but instead prove true or false each statement yourself.

For truth belongs to neither man or woman, nor holy book, nor well-reasoned philosophy or belief, but only to itself—immortal and pure. I seek only to remove untruth from your mind so that you may be restored to the unitary vision which is your everlasting inheritance.

Don't be a storehouse of memories.
Leave past, future and even present thoughts behind.
Be a witness to life unfolding by itself.
Be free of all attachments, fears and concerns by keeping your mind inside your own heart. Rest in Being.
Like this, your life is always fresh and imbued with pure joy and timeless presence.
Be happy, wise and free.

Play the game with yourself.
Whenever you think of another person, whenever you think of a problem, whenever you think of a beautiful sunset, catch yourself.
Ask yourself,
«To whom has this come?
It has come to me.
I perceive it.
Before you ask, ‘Who am I?»
Remember to realize that you are not the ‘I’.
The ‘I’ that perceives is not you.
In other words, What you must do from now on is, when you refer to ‘I’, you’re not talking about yourself.

Don't be misled by the personal mind flow which often draws one's attention away from reality and ties it up with mundane, material concerns. It is in such ways that even seekers of truth get 'stuck' in the level of time, effort and identity. Wake up.

One’s unceasing effort to turn the mind – which is always extroverted due to the force of habit [cultivated in past births] – towards Self by the Self-enquiry “Who am I?” is [the significance of] the great war being fought between devas and asuras [which is described in the Puranas].

(GURU VACHAKA KOVAI: 396)

[Sadhu Om: “In India many stories are recorded in books known as the Puranas, which tell of the wars being fought between devas [gods] and asuras [demons]. These wars should not be regarded as mere myths or events that happened only in the distant past, they are going on even today. They are the constant battle which is always being fought in the life of a sadhaka between his liking to attend only to Self and the habitual outward-going tendencies of his mind.”]

Self-Inquiry is merely to ‘quiet the mind’.
It’s a fast method to ‘quiet the mind’.
For when you ask,
«To whom does this come?
It comes to me», and you hold on to that me by inquiring,
«‘Who am I?’
What is ‘I’?»
And saying ‘I-I’ to yourself,
‘I-I’, the mind becomes quieter and quieter.
The deeper you go within yourself the quieter you become.
And that’s your sadhana.
That’s all you have to do.

The end point is already at the beginning. That’s what we call the direct path. You don’t have to get to silence. You simply have to realize it’s there. You don’t have to get to openness. You simply need to realize it’s already there. You don’t need to get to freedom. You simply need to recognize that it’s already there. You don’t need to get to no-self. You just need to recognize that there isn’t one there to begin with. You don’t have to get to the divine. You simply have to recognize that it’s the only thing that’s going on already. That’s called the direct path. It’s a direct experiential introduction to the view. The key is that it’s got to be experiential.
