Avyabhicharini Bhakti

The entry dated 15th March 1946, of Devaraja Mudaliar,
says:

Dr. Masalavala further placed the contents of the letter
of V.K. Ajgaonkar.  "Avyabhicharini bhakti is the only
necessary thing."  Dr. Masalavala did not understand what
this word meant.  Bhagavan Ramana said it is only meant
bhakti to God without anyother thought occupying the mind.
He said: Ananya bhakti, Ekagrata bhakti -- all mean the same
thing. The letter of V.K. Ajgaonkar continued:  "In the mind
two things do not exist at the same time.  Either God or
Samsar can only exist.  Samsar is already there.  That is to
be reduced little by little and God is to be entered instead."

Bhagavan remarked on this. "God is already there, not Samsar. Only you do not see it, on account of Samsar rubbish you
have filled your mind with.  Remove the rubbish and you will
see God.  If a room is filled with various articles stocked in
the room, the Space in the room has not vanished anywhere.
To have Space, we have not to create Space from anywhere,
but only to remove the articles stocked in the room.  Even so, God is there.  If you turn the mind inward, instead of outward on things, then you see the mind merges in the one unity which alone exists."

Bhagavan also agreed with the writer when he said that
to see God, Guru's Grace is necessary, which in turn, could
be had only by Upasana.  The letter contained the writer's
Namaskar to Bhagavan Ramana.  Thereupon, Bhagavan said
that the mind merging in its Source, the one unity, is the
only true namaskar.
