Guru is not the physical form.
So the contact will remain even after
the physical form of the Guru vanishes.

All that we see is a dream, whether we see
it in the dream state or in the waking state.
On account of some arbitrary standards
about the duration of experience and so on,
we call one experience dream experience
and another waking experience. With
reference to Reality, both the experiences
are unreal.

When you speak of a path, where are you now?
and where do you want to go? If these are known,
then we can talk of the path. Know first where you
are and what you are. There is nothing to be reached.
You are always as you really are. But you don’t realise it.
That is all.

Question: What is the difference between sushupti ananda and turiya ananda?

Answer: There are not different anandas. There is only one ananda including the ananda enjoyed during the waking state, the ananda, of all kinds of beings from the lowest animal to the highest Brahma, the ananda of the Self. The bliss which is enjoyed unconsciously in sleep is enjoyed consciously in turiya. That is the difference. The ananda enjoyed during jagrat is upadhi ananda.

Question: Is that purusha in the heart?

Answer: If you mean the physical heart, it cannot be. But the books describe a heart which is an inverted lotus with a cavity inside and a flame in that cavity and all that. In such a psychic heart, the purusha may be said to abide and the flame may be of that angushtha pramana.

Question: Is seeing that light Self-realisation?
Answer: Abiding in it and being it, not seeing it, is Self realisation.

No doubt many things like that are
written in those books; but the
authors themselves do not assimilate
what they write. This power of assimilation
comes from associating with holy men.
People listen to instruction only when
it is given by a sādhu who has truly
renounced the world; they are not
much impressed by the writings or
the words of a mere scholar.

The nearer you approach to God,
the less you reason and argue.
When you attain Him, then all sounds,
all reasoning and disputing-come to an end.
Then you go into samADhi-sleep,
into communion with God in silence.

in the same subject of communion, Bhagavan has give an excellent verse in the upadEsha sAram:

आज्यधारया स्रोतसा समम् ।
Ajya DhArayA srOthasA samam

"Like an unbroken flow of oil or a stream of water"

Communion happens when ones sAdhanA is thus, like an unbroken flow of oil or a stream of water, communication can only happen, when there is interruption, when there is a break in this continues flow, the mind is the culprit. The grace and the upadEshA of communion is ever happening, but we, the baser mind, bound by our vAsanAs, interrupt this communion due to ??? don't know - perhaps that also is His lIlA (divine play!)

Thank you cguruji, this was a contemplative story!

cguruji, the moral is clear, the seeker receives the answer he seeks! But the seeker who does not seek, ends up getting abundantly! That which seeks is mind, and when that mind is surrendered, it becomes His mind!

lot of mystery !...!  :) cguruji, can you please enlighten me?

Here is the translation:

O Annamalai! The very moment you took me as Your own, You took possession of (my) soul and body. (Therefore) is there (now) any shortcoming (defect, want or grievance) for me ? (Since my shortcomings and virtues cannot exist apart from You) I will not think of them, (my) shortcomings and virtues but only of You. O my life (my Real Self), whatever be (Your) will, do that (alone). O beloved, Bestow (upon me) only ever-increasing love for Your two Feet.

ennen ivaRRai en uyire eNNam adhuvo adhu seivAi
kaNNe un dhan kazhal iNaiyil kAdhal perukke tharuvAye.
