Sri Subramanian, thank you for that.

I have no experience of TM myself. But I'm sure that the many TM meditators would be relieved to her that Bhagavan didn't forbid mantra meditation to Ganapathi or say that it was useless -- just that he should listen for the source of the mantra.

But I follow the implicit message of your answer. Surrender is 'safer' than 'inspection', which could be simply perpetuating the dualistic actions of the mind 'analyzing' the mind. Or mind could be used as the thorn to remove the thorn of mind !

I guess all would depend, as always, on the purity of devotion !

DEAR SIR,

WITHOUT PURITY OF HEART ONE CAN NEVER  REACH AND REMAIN IN THE SELF FOREVER. WITH ANY AMOUNT MANTRA, TANTRA AND ENQUIRY. THE ENQUIRY FIRST PURIFIES YOU FIRST THEN IT TAKES YOU FURTHER. LET US TRY TO CLEANSE OUR HEART OF ALL DUST AS WE KNOW OURSELF BETTER THAN ANY ONE, AS THE SELF IN OURSELF IS THE WITNESS.

SIVA SIVA

Dear sankar,
                You are right.Purity of heart is more important than anything else in spirituality.Only pure people have the intelligence and sacrifice which
are required for surrender.
