The source is a point without any dimensions. It expands
as the cosmos on the one hand and as Infinite bliss on the
other. That point is the pivot. From it a single vasana starts
and expands as the experiencer (‘I’), the experience and the
experienced (the world).

The entire universe is condensed in the body and the entire
body in the Heart. Thus the Heart is the nucleus of the whole
universe. This world is not other than the mind, the mind is
not other than the Heart; that is the whole truth.

Dear Sri Anil ji,

some reflections crossed over as expressed bellow. This is not directly connected or a continuation of previous post but may be in the same connection.

Superior to holding on to the 'I' thought or the 'I' consciousness, is looking at the source of this holding on/clinging on to the 'I' thought or the 'I' consciousness, as Bhagavan says unintermittently.

just expressions!

one must completely forget the fact of being a sinner and
earnestly pursue meditation of Self. He is then sure to succeed.

Just as the prey which has fallen into the jaws of a tiger
has no escape, so those who have come within the ambit
of the Guru’s gracious look will be saved by the Guru and
will not get lost; yet, each one should by his own effort
pursue the path shown by God or Guru and gain release.

Realization is the result of the Master’s (Guru’s) grace,
more than teachings, lectures, meditations, etc. They are
only secondary aids, whereas the former is the primary
and essential cause.

If ego rises, all will rise. If the ego merges, all will merge.
The more we are humble, the better it is for us.

Avoid desire and aversion. Do not engage the mind much
in the affairs of the world. As far as possible do not get
entangled in the affairs of others. Giving to others is really
giving to oneself. If one knows this truth, would one ever
remain without giving?

Sri Ravi,

When ever i read Masters words such as He who has surrendered his body, mind, 'woman and gold' and innermost self to God etc... i only remember Girish Ghosh. Who can bargain better than him, having given away his power of attorney to Whom? The Supreme Self! This perhaps is one of the most profound instance i have ever come across!

How shrewd he has been! :)

Stray thoughts...

Grace is the beginning and the end (anAdi ananta - beginning-less and endless). What seems in between is only illusion. What is, is just Grace alone!

Sri Ravi,

what a gem, and what a great discovery are these talks. One cannot ask any further questions!

Grace is necessary. Sadhu seva is meant only for it. There is however nothing new to get. Just as a weak man comes under the control of a stronger one, the weak mind of a man comes under control easily in the presence of the strong-minded sadhus.

The non-action of the Sage is really unceasing activity.
His characteristic is eternal and intense activity. His stillness
is like the apparent stillness of a very fast-rotating top. Its
extreme speed cannot be followed by the eye and so it appears
to be still. This must be explained, as people generally mistake
the stillness of the Sage for inertness.
