have not really followed these discussions much... but i felt to share one thought that occurred on the subject of stealing etc.

Even if not completely, if we realise to a certain extant, what really there really to claim as ours? absolutely nothing! Even, we cannot claim our own body as ours, it does not listens to us, it gets tired, it gets diseases etc... what belongs to us? only if something belongs to us, is there some possibility of stealing, or being stolen from. Suppose realizing that nothing really is ours, and if we steal from others with aspiration to make it ours, still it does not become ours.

We are absolutely hopelessly helpless, we got to just repose, resign!

Seeking answers is samsara, surrendering all the questions is wisdom. Remaining calm and quiet in uncertainty as it is, is peaceful.

Govardhana mountain, Who was given a stainless name of Govinda
by the cows (Kāmadhenu), Who has many names, and Who is beyond
the scope of perception of the Gopīs.

Extol Govinda, Who is the eternal bliss, Who enters the meeting
place of the group of Gopīs, Who remains like an un-entered enlightenment
in the state of being present at the meeting place, Whose beauty is added
by the continuous association with the dust risen from the striking of cow-hooves
at the ground, Who accepts devotion with happiness, Who is beyond reason,
Who is reasoned with nice emotions, and Who is as great as the jewel of thought.

Extol Govinda, Who is the eternal bliss, Who is resplendent,
Who is the reason behind reason, Who is the beginning of the universe,
Who is without a beginning, Who is the passage of time, Who is without
luminosity, Who at once started dancing after entering the water of Kālindī,
Who is death, Who is beyond the play of death, Who is made of nothing [formless],
Who destroys the malice of Kaliyuga, and Who is the reason for the existence of past,
present and future.

I adore Govinda, Who is prayed by the group of Vraja maidens in
the territory of Vṛndāvana, Who is prayed by demi-gods and Vṛndā (a maiden),
Who has a beautiful spotless smile like jasmine which gives the pleasure of
divine nectar, and Who is the pleasure of friends. Praise Govinda,
Whose dual-feet is worth of reverence by the minds of great sages and
rest alike. Praise Govinda, Who is the abode of all the qualities.
Extol Govinda, Who is the eternal bliss.

Govindangri saroja dhyana sudha jala dhoutha samasthago,
Govindam paramanandam amruthamathastham sa samabhyethi. 9

That who submits his (or her) mind to Govinda, chants the name of
Govinda, Acyuta, Mādhava, Viṣṇu, Gokulanāyaka, Kṛṣṇa and thus,
washes all the sins by meditating on the lotus-feet of Govinda, and
sings this Govindāṣṭakam — he (or she) internalizes the divine nectar
like eternally blissful Govinda.

This Vruja land of ours, oh Krishna,
Has always been rich, oh Krishna,
For Lakshmi is here, oh Krishna,
Because of your birth, oh Krishna,
When all the people are happy, Oh Krishna,
We the gopis who love you, Oh Krishna,

And which danced on the head of a snake, Oh Krishna,
On our pretty breasts, Oh Krishna,
And satisfy our passion for you, Oh Krishna.

Oh Friend with a lotus eye, Oh Krishna,

It blesses with all that is good, Oh Krishna,
And those great ones, Oh Krishna,

When you accompany the cattle of Vruja, Oh Krishna,
Your lotus feet which is pretty and delicate, Oh Lord,
Treads over stones and thorns, Oh Krishna,
And gives you great pain, Oh Krishna,
And this makes our mind, Oh Krishna,
Restless and worried, Oh Krishna.

Oh heroic one, Please give us, Oh Krishna,
The nectar of your lips, Oh Krishna,

By the flute of yours, Oh Krishna,
And which puts an end, Oh Krishna,
Of the other longings in men, Oh Krishna.

Your going away to the forest, oh Krishna,
During the day time, Oh Krishna,
Makes us feel that every second, Oh Krishna,
Like a never ending age, Oh Krishna,
And seeing you back, Oh Krishna,
Through your flowing frontal curls, Oh Krishna,
Makes us feel that Lord Brahma, Oh Krishna,
Is a very slow witted one, Oh Krishna.
We have left our husbands and son, Oh Achyutha,
And also our families and brothers, Oh, Krishna,
And have come near you, Oh Krishna,
You who know even the path of the dead, Oh Krishna,
Have neglected us at night, Oh Krishna,
Who have come attracted by your song, Oh deceiver.

Your secret glances, Oh Krishna,
Your face that increases passion, Oh Krishna,
With an ever pretty smile, Oh Krishna,
Your look with love, Oh Krishna,
Your broad chest where Lakshmi resides, Oh Krishna,
Makes us long to attain you, Oh Krishna,
And our mind also gets enchanted, Oh Krishna.

You who are the friend of people of Vruja, Oh Krishna,
Are capable of destroying all their sins, Oh Krishna,
And also you do good to the entire universe, Oh Krishna,
So give us that medicine, to cure our aching heart, Oh Krishna,
To us who are in love with you, Oh Krishna.
We keep your lotus like tender feet, Oh darling,
Very tenderly on our very hard breasts, Oh Krishna,
With lot of care so that they do not pain, Oh Krishna,
But you travel with those tender feet, Oh Krishna,
In forests over sharp thorns and stones, oh Krishna,
And thinking of the pain those feet would suffer, Oh Krishna,
The brain of ours who have given our life to you, Oh Krishna,
Gets rattled and worried, Oh Krishna.

its very imporant to stay wit the current of clarity when it comes as it can be very easily lost due to lack of tapaa or deligence.

You have to ask yourself the question,Who am I? This investigation will leadin the end to the discovery of somethingwithin you which is behind the mind.Solve that great problem, and you willsolve all other problems thereby. 

A Search in Secret India

"Pursue the inquiry 'Who am I' relentlessly. Analyse your entire personality. Try to find out where the I-thought begins. Go on with your meditations. Keep turning your attention within. One day the wheel of thought will slow down and an intuition will mysteriously arise. Follow that intuition, let your thinking stop, and it will lead eventually to the goal."

...yearning of a guru is greatly killing, sometimes it is always best to yearn for God as he will not come in physical form and leave impressions... you just don't want a Guru.

Without giving room even to the thought which occurs in the form of doubt, whether it is possible to stay merely as the very Self, whether all the vasanas can be destroyed, one should firmly and unceasingly carry on meditation on the Self.

 :) yes, very true Sri Sanjay.




Oh Lord! Hill of my refuge, who curest the ills of
recurrent births, it is for Thee to cure my mother’s fever.

Oh God who slayest death! Reveal Thy feet in the
Heart-Lotus of her who bore me to take refuge at Thy Lotus-
Feet, and shield her from death. What is death if scrutinised?

Arunachala, Thou blazing fire of Knowledge! Enfold
my mother in Thy Light and make her one with Thee.
What need then for cremation?

Arunachala, Dispeller of illusion! Why dost Thou
delay to dispel my mother’s delirium? Is there any but Thee
to watch as a Mother over one who has sought refuge in
Thee and to rescue from the tyranny of karma?
