Do not pursue the past. Do not lose yourself in the future.
The past no longer is. The future has not yet come.
Looking deeply at life as it is in the very here and now,
the practitioner dwells in stability and freedom.
We must be diligent today. To wait until tomorrow is too late.
Death comes unexpectedly. How can we bargain with it?

some very touching verses from Aksharamana malai, carrying the same spirit -

தொட்டருட் கைமெய் கட்டிடா யெனிலியா னட்டமா வேனரு ளருணாசலா!
அருணாசலசிவ, அருணாசலசிவ, அருணாசலசிவ, அருணாசலா 51

Unless you touch me with your hand of grace and
embrace me, I am lost, O Arunachala.

நோக்கியே கருதிமெய் தாக்கியே பக்குவ மாக்கிநீ யாண்டரு ளருணாசலா!
அருணாசலசிவ, அருணாசலசிவ, அருணாசலசிவ, அருணாசலா

Look at me! Think of me! Touch me! Make me fit, ripen
me! Then be my master, govern me, O Arunachala. 63

பார்த்தருண் மாலறப் பார்த்திலை யெனினருள் பாருனக் கார்சொல்வ ரருணாசலா!
அருணாசலசிவ, அருணாசலசிவ, அருணாசலசிவ, அருணாசலா 65

Regard me graciously and dispel my illusion, If you don't,
who in the world will plead with you, O Arunachala?

வரும்படி சொலிலை வந்தென் படியள வருந்திடுன் றலைவிதி யருணாசலா!
அருணாசலசிவ, அருணாசலசிவ, அருணாசலசிவ, அருணாசலா 94

You asked me, did you not, to come to you? Very well, I have come.
Now you come and assume the burden of maintaining me.
Go on suffering thus. It is your fate to look after me, O Arunachala.

If the longing is there, Realisation will be forced on you even if
you do not want it. Subhechcha is the doorway for realisation.

Indeed, I am Allah; there is no god except I; so worship Me, and establish prayer for My remembrance.

Dear Agnoia,

Don't worry, even the ignorance is revealed only because of knowledge, therefore, truly there is nothing to feel let down or feel depressed.

We say the clouds have covered the Sun!, is it possible for clouds to ever cover the Sun? It is just that the clouds have covered our eyes but not the Sun :) even that the clouds have covered the Sun is only known, only because of Sun's own light! The similar with yourself too! You say you don't understand only with the help of the Effulgence within, like the Sun. There is nothing to understand, understanding is maya, it is mind that wants to understand, it is a futile exercise, just wait on, the mind will get tired and all these will pass away! Just keep hanging on, hold on!

Truly there is nothing to worry about, just sail with the river in its own pace and do not try to swim faster or try hard, there is nothing to reach or attain, there is no race or any such, clarity and unclarity are only the aspects of the Mind and not you, who art really the Sun. You are witness to both knowledge and ignorance.

Just experience these phases as they pass by, you remain! Do not make (views, opinion, judgements) anything of these, these are just shadows or products of mind that is illusive. The mind will keep suggesting something now and then, sometimes it suggests clarity and other times it suggests utter unclarity, just be, and just don't co-operate with the mind. Just remain.

Patience, Patience, hold on as all these pass by, just be as all your karmas are being expended. Don't interfere with the suggestions of mind, be it anyhing, good or bad, clarity or unclarity!

Dear Sanjay,


I felt, there is no need for THAT to come in terns with itself. It would be yet another bondage if THAT felt a need to come in terms with itself. Therefore, there does not arise any questions of easy or difficulty with regard to 'what is!

The Self is always known and never to be attained.

It is only giving up what is unreal that is great difficulty as we have bonded with what is unreal strongly in several births.

The process of letting go completely happens exactly to the proportion of our recognition and coming to terms with what is not and not taking ashraya or shelter in unreality.

Coming to terms with maya (or that which is unreal) can be a painful process!

You are moving away from yourself. You have to be yourself and a path is trying to turn you into
something other than yourself. Why do you want to be somebody other than yourself? You see,
otherwise you wouldn't listen to anyone. Look here, I want to be full of feeling for everybody.
Somebody is talking about love, for example, so you want to be full of that love, whatever it is. You
are projecting a hundredfold what you think love is, for example. That's what makes it difficult for
you to be yourself.



The feeling of a need to work in order to gain happiness
is the misery of miseries. How can there be pleasure or
removal of pain so long as it continues?




If unable to comprehend this pure state,
one should worship God in the concrete form which is most
agreeable to Him; in this way, too, one is sure to reach
the goal, though gradually.

Stray thoughts...

The self is not known through intellect, rather the intellect is known because of Self!




“What will it be like when one achieves Self-realization?” a devotee asked.

“The question is wrong, one does not realize anything new”, said Bhagavan.

“I do not get you, Swami”, persisted the devotee.

“It is very simple. Now you feel you are in the world.
There you feel that the world is in you”, explained Bhagavan.

(Ramana Smriti)
