when does the awarness over rule the mind
« on: October 24, 2008, 08:12:24 PM »
Dear sirs,

Without knowing the mind's play people are living. Actually, they are not living just they are existing.
When people know they are not mind and body instead they are awarness, then  it is the real living.
The awarness and the mind both are within the human being. But suddenly people start to realising
something wrong with them, then the" search" is being started. How does it happen.
In Bhagavan's case it came through the death experience. In Buddha's case seeing the calamities of
the world it started. Unless the question comes from own being, real searching never take place.
I wounder, so long the person was sleeping and suddenly oneday from where this "question" pops up.
We are doing mistakes, then we realise our mistakes and we  find the solution.  Wonder!
Where does the awarness sleep so long inspite of being within ourselves.

It is all the karuna of Eswara who makes a jiva long to know the self. This again is determined by the punya and papa done by the jiva in its many many births. To some people this ser=arch comes very early, to some it never even surfaces in this birth. That is why bagavataradhana is asked to be done by our elders. Only God can reveal God.

Avan arulal avan thal panindhu.

If not for the mercy of God, we can not even get into thses thoughts. If this thought is very strong God himself will lead us to our Guru

Dear ushanpri,

You said it.  Avan arulalale avan thal vanangi... says Tiruvachakam.
We can reach God (here feet are mentioned), only when God wills it.
Upanishads say:  Brahman can be attained only when Brahman
chooses you.  This happens when one starts feeling that the world
is unreal and one's own activities are futile.  At that stage one
starts working out, "Who am I?"  The search starts.

Arunachala Siva.
