To become what one already is
« on: March 20, 2009, 11:15:23 PM »
A devotee asked, “Why do we imagine so? Why does this
ignorance or ajnana come to us?”

Bhagavan said, “Enquire to whom has this ignorance
come and you will find it never came to you and that you
have always been that Sat-Chit-Ananda. One performs all sorts
of penances to become what one already is.

All effort is simply to get rid of this viparita buddhi or mistaken
impression that one is limited and bound by the woes of samsara.”

॥ शांतमात्मनि तिष्ट ॥
Remain quietly in the Self.
