पोथि पढि-पढि जग मुआ, पंडित भयो न कोए ।
ढाई आखर प्रेम के, जो पढै सो पंडित होए ॥


Reading books everyone died, none became any wise
One who reads the word of Love, only becomes wise

For everyone who asks
receives, and he who seeks
finds, and to him who knocks
it will be opened.

Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?

(Psalm)


2467
When one receives the grace of a saint,
His ego-consciousness dissolves;
Eventually, even God-consciousness will dissolve.
If you light a piece of camphor,
It produces a bright flame;
But after awhile, both camphor and flame disappear.
In the same way, God-consciousness
Supplants ego-consciousness at first,
But eventually,
Even the awareness ‘I am He’ dissolves.

One who comes under the influence of a saint
Has arrived at the gates of Liberation;
He will attain all glory.

Jnanadev says: I delight in the company of the saints!
It is due to their grace that I see Hari everywhere
In the forest, in the crowds, and also in myself.

(haripattA jnAnEshwar)


2468
if the Self,
Who is, himself, pure Consciousness,
Thinks, “I am conscious of myself; I am He!”
Such knowledge would be bondage.

(jnAnEshwar)

Friends,

a rare beautiful picture of a young Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj seated in his shrine room by the altar featuring a framed, garlanded image of his Guru, Sri Siddharamesvar Maharaj (1888-1936)

हम को मन की शक्ति देना मन विजय करें,
दूसरों की जय से पहले ख़ुद को जय करें।


ham kO man kI shakti dEnA man vijay karE
dUsasOn kI jay sE pahalE Khud kO jay karE

God, please give us the strength of the mind
So that we can win victory over our minds
...before winning over others


भेदभाव अपने दिल से साफ़ कर सके,
दोस्तों से भूल हो तो माफ़ कर सके,
झूठ से बचे रहें सच का दम भरें,

       
BhedaBhAva apnE dil sE sAF kar sakE
dOstOn sE Bhul hO tO mAF kar sakE
JhUT sE bacE rahEn sac kA dam Bharen

Remove the feelings of differences from our hearts
Make us forgive when friends commit mistakes
Keep us always away from falsehood and
fill our hearts only with truth


    मुश्किलें पड़े तो हम पे इतना कर्म कर,
साथ दें तो धर्म का चलें तो धर्म कर,
ख़ुद पे हौसला रहे बदी से ना डरें,


mushkilEn paDen tO ham pE itanA karma kar
sATh dE tO Dharma kA calEn tO Dharma kar
Khud pE hausalA rahE badhI sE nAdarEn
dUsron kI jay sE pahalE Khud kO jay karE

If troubles befall on us, please, this much grace on us
So that we can tread the path of religion & perform our duties
Please make us confident and fearless

Now I have serious doubts that Nagaraj ji is trying to project himself as cguru :D
this seems to be his own snap at some nice place :)

I am talking abt the Space :D

Thanks, for projecting me  :D

Dear Nagaraj,
    If you keep bringing back the mind each time it strays ... you will be Tired like that!
Instead .. Fix the reason the mind is Straying ...
and with just a few attempts it will "SIT" where it is supposed to "BE"

Dear Sri Tushnim,

Unfortunately you have to sort this with Bhagavan, as it was He who said this, not i  :(
