Master of Self Realization - 2

The Notes of Nisargadatta Maharaj continues....

*

A small boy was told to pass stools by going to the toilet.  He went
there and defacated but he did not remove his trousers, or take
sufficient water to clean himself.  He was asked why he did this.
He said:  "I did what was told to me.  I did not do what was not
told."  You do like this.  How can someone tell you everything?
One must understand for oneself.

*

The river of knowledge is drowned in the name and form.  All
knowledge is like a river, but the river has become petty, little,
and insignificant, because of name and form. By name and form,
it is as if the river is drowned in the boat!  Elephant, horse, and
mountains are all drowned in that water, but even a sparrow cannot
quench its thirst there.  Brahman in the form of a sparrow cannot
quench its thirst.  Do not be deceived by the illusory name and form.
Remain as you are.  The mouse should not ride upon Ganapati.

*

Therefore, take vow that you yourself are Brahman, that is the inner
Experiencer of all experiences.  Who is the owner of the field? Is
it the King or the farmer?  You have to pay levy, some percentage
to the King. He is the owner.  Everything, inner and outer belongs
only to the King!  You are but a villager.  You may live in the village,
that is your right, but all authority vests in the King. Whose authority
should be recognized?

*

Fancy clothes are meant for people who take pride in their appearance.  What importance do they have for me?  The motive
to put on nice clothes is to appear presentable to others, or to
indicate that you have possessions.  That is all pride. If clothes
are fine, you have to take care, if they are ordinary, there is no
problem of where to sit.  One can sit anywhere.  If one keeps out
their clothes and keep them outside, one need not be anxious
about their loss.

*

Rama and Krishna were separate, but the mantra "Ramakrishna Hari" is formed by unifying both.  Both Rama and Krishna are lost, and
they become "Ramakrishna Hari".   Drop the hypocrisy of ownership and greed.  The wealth of the son of the Guru, all belongs to the Guru.  Air, water,light, night, day, all are for Him only.  Everything
is His, so where is there any shortage?

*

The one who feeds the creation inside a rock, and one who gives
food to birds living on the highest mountain peak, is only "He",
giving all, with His Own Power.  On every grain is inscribed the name
of the consumer.  He is all.  The food and He are not two.  He is
the tiger and He is the horse.  As He is the form, He is also the name.

*

If you will your Realization in your daily life, only the do you
become a man of Self Realization, a Jnani.
