Maharshi's Gospel and Talks - 20
« on: June 22, 2009, 01:27:16 PM »
Talks No. 240 reads as under:  [abridged]

Devotee:  The world is materialistic.  What is the remedy for it?

Bhagavan:  Materialistic or spiritual, it is according to your
outlook  "Drishtim jananmayim kritva, Brahma mayam pasyet
jagat."  Make your outlook right.  The Creator know how to take
care of His Creation.

Devotee:.....I want to know how the Self could be realized.
Is there any method leading to it?

Bhagavan:  Make effort.  Just as water is got by boring a well,
so also you realize the Self by investigation.

Devotee:  Yes.  But some find water readily and others with
difficulty.

Bhagavan:  But you already see the moisture on the surface.
You are hazily aware of the Self.  Puruse it.  When the effort
ceases the Self shines forth.

Devotee:  How to train the mind to look within?

Bhagavan:  By practice.  The mind is the intelligent phase
leading to its own destruction, for Self to manifest.

Devotee: How to destroy the mind?

Bhagavan:  Water cannot be made dry water.  Seek the Self,
the mind will be destroyed.

Arunachala Siva.
