Buddhist Quote

?The Buddha is not going to project you to Buddhahood, as if throwing a stone. He is not going to purify you, as if washing a dirty cloth, nor is he going to cure you of ignorance, like a doctor administering medicine to a passive patient.
Having attained full enlightenment himself, he is showing you the path, and it is up to you to follow it or not. It is up to you now to practice these teachings and experience their results.?
~ H.H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

A discourser in Chennai has listed ten types of meritorious
acts, vide the Hindu.

1. Patience
2. Honesty in mind, word and body.
3. Fear of sinning.
4. A great liking for virtue.
5. Control of the outgoing mind.
6. Generosity to the extent one can afford.
7. Siva archanai, i.e. telling Siva's names in front of Siva Lingam
    or a photograph, with flowers, fruits and water and leaves.
8.  Penance to control the mind-body consciousness.
9.  Meditation on Siva's form or simply on Effulgence.
10.Desisting from harming anyone in life.

Arunachala Siva.

Thanks Subramaniam Sir for sharing this useful info .

ANNAMALAI SWAMI - ESSENTIALS

Don?t allocate periods of time to meditate ?I am? with closed eyes. Do it throughout the day while doing all other activities.

If you want to go beyond the body and mind, abide in the ?I am? only and understand that all that is ?I am? plus is false.

Abidance or meditation in the ?I am? is a process by which attention is kept focused on the substratum instead of the names and forms that are habitually imposed on it.

When you abide in the ?I am? ignorance vanishes. Ignorance is not knowing the ?I am? in its absolute purity.

CONSCIOUS IMMORTALITY

Self-Enquiry

Q: Is the analytic process merely intellectual or does feeling predominate?

M: The latter. The personal ?I? is a reflection of the real Self in the mind.

Ask yourself the question, 'Who am I?'. The body and its functions are not 'I'. Enquire further. The senses and their functions are not 'I'.

Going deeper, the mind and its functions are not 'I'.

The next step is the question, 'From where do these thoughts arise??

Thoughts are spontaneous, superficial or analytical. Who is aware of them? Their existence and operations become evident to the individual.

Analysis leads to the conclusion that individuality operates as awareness of the existence of thoughts. This is ego. Enquire further, 'Who is this ?I?? and where does it come from?' Do sleep analysis.

'I? am' underlies the three states ? sleep, waking and dreaming.
After discarding all that is not-Self, we find the residue ? the Self Absolute.

Both world and ego are objective and must be eliminated in the analysis. Eliminating the unreal the Real survives. To accomplish this eliminate the mind, which is the creator of the dualistic idea and of ego. Mind is one form of life ?manifestation. The individual cannot exist without the Self, but the Self can exist without the individual.

Q: Is this method quicker than developing qualities thought to be necessary for salvation?

M: All bad qualities are tied up in the ego. When the ego is gone, realization is self-evident.
