A very rare picture of cguru:

Simply draw the mind back each time
it strays and fix it in dhyana.

Everything we see is changing,
always changing.
There must be something
unchanging as the basis and
source of all this.

This is a classic old tamil movie song penned by Kannadasan

மயக்கமா கலக்கமா
மனதிலே குழப்பமா
வாழ்க்கையில் நடுக்கமா

வாழ்க்கை என்றால் ஆயிரம் இருக்கும்
வாசல் தோறும் வேதனை இருக்கும்
வந்த துன்பம் எது வந்தாலும்
வாடி நின்றால் ஓடுவதில்லை
வாடி நின்றால் ஓடுவதில்லை
எதையும் தாங்கும் இதயம் இருந்தால்
இறுதி வரைக்கும் அமைதி இருக்கும்
 
ஏழை மனதை மாளிகையக்கி
இரவும் பகலும் காவியம் பாடி
நாளைப் பொழுதை இறைவனுக்களித்து
நடக்கும் வாழ்வில் அமைதியைத் தேடு
நடக்கும் வாழ்வில் அமைதியைத் தேடு
உனக்கும் கீழே உள்ளவர் கோடி
நினைத்துப் பார்த்து நிம்மதி நாடு


    Are you dazed and queasy?
Is there confusion in your heart?
Is there uncertainty in your life?

Life has thousands of problems in it
Every one’s house has anxieties (not just you)
Whatever the trouble is
If you wilt and stop, they don’t go away
If you wilt and stop, they don’t go away
If you have a heart that can endure anything
There will be peace until the end

Make the poor heart a palace
Sing poetically about night and day (sadness and joy)
Dedicate tomorrow’s time/worries to god and
Look for peace in your present life
There are crores of people worse off than you
Think about that and feel grateful and peaceful

Sri Ravi, Sri Jewel,

the pain is as charismatic as its counterpart! When one welcomes both, one stops praying God for anything, but just experiences gratitude to both, for their visit.

The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna



What need is there of penance if God is worshipped with love? What is the use of penance if God is not worshipped with love? What need is there of penance if God is seen within and without? What is the use of penance if God is not seen within and without? O Brahman! O my child! Cease from practicing further penances. Hasten to Sankara, the Ocean of Heavenly Wisdom; Obtain from Him the love of God, the pure love praised by devotees, which snaps in twain the shackles that bind you to the world.

I am the Hindu, I am the christian,
I am the Buddhist, I am the Moslim,
I am the Agnostic, I am the Atheistic,
who am I?
O, Thou, who art, the bewilderment of silence!

But I will sing of Your power;
Yes, I will sing aloud of Your mercy in the morning;
For You have been my defense
And refuge in the day of my trouble.

Friends, in the talks of nOcur AcAryA, he recollects how, some girl in a foreign country felt that the talks of swAmi vivEkAnandA seem to hypontise the listeners, as his talks were so powerful and straight, that they went deep into the listeners mind, and it had naturally bought some experiences in the minds of the listeners! the girl felt, as if being hypnoised, and when she went and said to swAmi vivEkAnandA, that he was hypnotising her with his talks then He said to her, No child, i am not hynotising you, you are already hypnotised, i am only dehypnotising you!

So in this way, i feel the same with each of us, we are all hypnotised, what is required is only de-hypnosis.

The very word hypnosis is so distant from true spirituality, true spirituality is not self hypnosis, i would rather go with the process of self realisation, that is commonly used! Why cant we use Bhakti, jnyAnA, yOgA is beautiful word, before these words, Self hypnosis is way out of place and does not really touch the heart of true spirituality.

my humble thoughts.
