Silence is such a power, silence is such a transforming force, silence is also alchemical ..... it is the only magic in the world ...... the other is bound to be transformed.

Your inner being is nothing but the inner sky.

Clouds come and go, planets are born and disappear, stars arise and die,

and the inner sky remains the same, untouched, untarnished, unscarred.

We call that inner sky , the witness, and that is the whole goal of Meditation.

The mind cannot wait, it is always in a hurry. It knows nothing about patience; hence it keeps piling questions upon questions without getting the answer.

It is something very delicate to understand; that it is not the answer that is significant but the right timing, your readiness to receive it; otherwise it will just go above your head. The impatient mind is much too occupied in questioning.

A true Guru is someone who has realised the Self and who is able to use his power to assist others towards the goal of Self realisation.

There is solitude everywhere. The individual is solitary always. His business is to find it out within, not to seek it outside himself.

Whatever people continue to do or think they are doing, they are purely a concept based on a certain image they have of themselves. And once they act according to that image, they will be susceptable to all kinds of unhappiness. Whatever happens is a mere movement in that consciousness. Once this is understood, nothing remains to be done : there is nothing you can or need to do.

Meditation is not something that is done by the mind , it is the absence of the mind. When the mind stops , meditation happens. It is not something out of the mind, it is something beyond the mind.

Hold the ego first and then ask how it is to be destroyed. Who asks the question ?

It is the ego. This question is a sure way to cherish the ego and not to kill it.

If you seek the ego you will find that it does not exist. That is the way to destroy it.

You bear a name to which you answer. But your body was not born with that name written on it, nor did it say to anyone that it bore such and such a name. And yet a name is given to you and you answer to that name, because you have identified yourself with the name. Therefore the name signified something and it is not a mere fiction. Similiarly, God's name is effective. Repetition of the name is rememberance of what it signifies. Hence its merit.

God and Guru are in TRUTH not different. Just as the prey that has fallen into the jaws of a tiger cannot escape, so those who have come under the glance of the Guru's will surely be saved and will never be forsaken; yet one should follow without fail the path shown by the GURU .
