Bhagavan to Maha Krishna Swami:

?Silence is the most powerful form
of teaching transmitted from master to adept.
The soundless voice is pure intuition.
It is the voice of spiritual sound speaking in
our innermost being. Self-enquiry is the only
path we have in order to eliminate spiritual
unconsciousness, which is widespread.
Self-enquiry brings the consciousness of
the divine, the universal truth and the light
that governs the universe. All this must be
known, felt, lived and realized. In order to
realize this truth, we need to eliminate
the thinking mind, to dissolve it in
the Universal Self?.

~ Ramana Smrti, p. 53

CONSCIOUS IMMORTALITY

The body is born again and again.
We wrongly identify ourselves with the body, and hence imagine we are reincarnated constantly. No!

We must identify ourselves with the true Self. The realized one enjoys unbroken consciousness, never broken by birth or by death ? how can he die? Only those who think 'I am the body' talk of reincarnation. To those who know 'I am the Self' there is no rebirth.

Reincarnations exist only so long as there is ignorance. There is no incarnation, either now, before or hereafter.

This is the truth.

Swami Sivananda on Fate

The controversy between free will and fatalism is still going on in the West and no one has come to any definite conclusion. It is a great pity that the doctrine of Karma is mistaken for fatalism. Fatalism is the doctrine that all events are subject to fate and happen by unavoidable necessity.

Fate is one's own creation. Man acts and thinks and develops his own character. He creates a web like the spider or a silk-worm and entangles himself in its meshes on account of the three knots, viz., Avidya, Kama and Karma. He himself has enthroned fate to the level of a king and obeys its order owing to his ignorance and its effects.

Swami Sivananda

All the activities that the body is to go through are determined when it first comes into existence. It does not rest with you to accept or reject them. The only freedom you have is to turn your mind inward and renounce activities there. ~ (Bhagavan in 'Day by Day with Bhagavan' 1.6.1946)

"Regulation of life, such as getting up at a fixed hour, bathing, doing mantra, japa, etc., observing ritual, all this is for people who do not feel drawn to Self-enquiry or are not capable of it. But for those who can practise this method all rules and discipline are unnecessary". ~ "Day by Day with Bhagavan" 7-18-1946.

Wed 26 Aug 2015 is a very auspicious day .According to Kanchi Mahaswamigal "?Of the twenty-seven Yogas, one is named Ayushman. Of the eleven Karanas, one is the called the Bhava. Among the week days, the Sowmya Vaasaram refers to a Wednesday. When ?the Ayushman Yoga and the Bhava Karana?occur together on a Wednesday -Sowmya vasaram, , that day is said to be shlagya-very auspicious day. " . That is the essecnce of blessing people "dheerga ayushman bhava" . Not all days have this rare coincidence of Yoga , Karana , Wednesday . Now this is happening on Wed Aug26th 2015 .Incidentally or coincidentally, that day is ekadasi too.Whatever our prayers are will be answered. Hope everyone gets this message today so that you can spend enough time in the puja room on this special day?.Let us pray our gurus/ Kula Deivam ,Ishta Deivam to bless us with all the spiritual growth we all need. Let us not ask any material benefits ? let us ask for His grace, blessings to elevate us spiritually!

Happy that you could make it to Arunachala for the 3rd time .I do agree with you about the  commercialization around the girivalam route and the vehicular pollution .  No easy solutions for these problems .
