I AM hath sent me unto you.




Birth and rebirth are mentioned only
to make you investigate the question and
find out that there are neither births nor rebirths.
They relate to the body and not to the Self.
Know the Self and be not perturbed by doubts.

Remember the former things of old:
for I [am] God, and [there is] none else; [I am] God,
and [there is] none like me

O Lord my God, in thee do I put my trust:
save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:



Not to think “I am Brahman” or “All is Brahman” is itself jivanmukti.




D.: How can one know whether a
particular individual is competent to be a Guru?

M.: By the peace of mind found in
his presence and by the sense of respect you feel for him.



The Guru does not bring about Self-Realisation.
He simply removes the obstacles to it.


The pure Self is simple Being.
It does not associate itself with
objects and become conscious
as in the wakeful state.

What you now call consciousness in
the present state is associated consciousness
requiring brain, mind, body, etc., to depend upon.
But in sleep consciousness persisted without these.



Get rid of the ‘I-thought’. So long as ‘I’ is alive, there is grief. When
‘I’ ceases to exist, there is no grief. Consider the state of sleep!


The birth of the ‘I-thought’ is one’s own birth, its death is the person’s death.


Your effort is the bondage.


There is no ‘all’, apart from God, for Him to pervade. He alone is.

Baba's Advice Regarding our Behaviour

The following words of Baba are general and invaluable. If they are kept in mind and acted upon, they will always do you good. "Unless there is some relationship or connection, nobody goes anywhere. If any men or creatures come to you, do not discourteously drive them away, but receive them well and treat them, with due respect. Shri Hari (God) will be certainly pleased, if you give water to the thirsty, bread to the hungry, clothes to the naked, and your verandah to strangers for sitting and resting. If anybody wants any money from you, and you are not inclined to give, do not give, but do not bark at him, like a dog. Let anybody speak hundreds of things against you, do not resent by giving any bitter reply. If you always tolerate such things, you will certainly be happy. Let the world go topsy-turvy, you remain where you are. Standing or staying in your own place, look on calmly at the show of all things passing before you. Demolish the wall of difference that separates you from Me; and then the road for our meeting will be clear and open. The sense of differentiation, as I and thou, is the barrier that keeps away the disciple from his Master, and unless that is destroyed the state of union or atonement is not possible, "Allah Malik" i.e. God is the sole Proprietor, nobody else is our Protector. His method of work is extra-ordinary, invaluable, and inscrutable. His will will be done and He will show us the way, and satisfy our heart's desires. It is on account of Rinaubandh (former relationship) that we have come together, let us love and serve each other and be happy. He, who attain the supreme goal of life, is immortal and happy; all others merely exist, i.e., live so long as they breathe".

(Chapter XVII & XIX)

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall
abide under the shadow of the Almighty
