I do not feel I am competent enough and, therefore, do not wish to utter vain words other than
Bhagwan's WORDS and the Words of His Great Devotees. Hence, I entreat those who may agree
that in case of difference of opinions among the devotees, we should turn to the 'Authority'
i.e. Sri Bhagwan over and above the scriptures. The Straight Path shown, lighted and enjoined
by our Guru is so integral and absolute that It is Goal Itself and, in my opinion, does not leave any room
for argument.All we need to do is to tread it diligently.I mean Practice with unwavering belief and
intense devotion to our Guru.
Verse 19, Upadesa Saram,
"Wherefrom does this "I"-thought arise? If one enquires thus , it vanishes. This is Self-enquiry."
"When the "I"-thought perishes, then another "I"-"I" springs forth as the Heart, spontaneously.
It is Existence in all its fullness."
Sri Bhagwan has repeatedly said that 'Who am I' is not a verbal question to be repeated like a mantra.
One should cultivate genuine doubt about his identity. If I know the true import of "I", what is the meaning of
raising 'who am I' question? If I do not know that which I call "I" ,all thoughts loose power, meaning
and sheen. I feel that if 'Who am I' question is raised with genuine doubt about one's identity itself,
the thinker, and intense self-attention is maintained, only "I"-thought remains and that too will ultimately
merge with the Source or Self.
This is how I feel.If anyone has a different view, he may kindly ignore.
