How to get rid of Vasanas etc.,? - 4
« on: March 06, 2009, 10:24:28 AM »
Padamalai Verse 401 of Muruganar says:

To experience peace by eliminating desire and aversion from the
Heart is to attain the exalted state of divine dispassion.

The entry dated 18th March 1947, of Letters of Suri Nagamma runs:

Question: Swamiji!  How does the soul attain peace?

Bhagavan: (laughing): What! What is peace for the soul?

Question: No, no!  I mean the mind.

Bhagavan: Oh! For the mind!  The mind attains peace if the Vasanas
are suppressed. For that, one must enquire and realizde who one is.  How can one get peace by merely saying, "I want peace, I want peace!" Without first enquiring what is peace?  First make efforts to recognize and realize what already exists."

(Source: Padamalai, Muruganar. Tr. and Comm. David Godman and others.)

Arunachala Siva.

Till we are in tune with self and feel harmony and joy with the self,desire always arises.

Dear Dr. Raju,

Yes. This tuning takes place, either by Self enquiry or through
meditation.
