The Self is God. "I AM" is God.

Know that you are the perfect shining light, which not only makes the existence of God's kingdom possible, but also allows it to be seen as some wonderful heaven.

Faith is in things unknown, but the Self is self-evident.

That bliss of the Self is always with you and you will find it for yourself if you seek it earnestly.

Dear prasanth,

Once Devaraja Mudaliar asked Sri Bhagavan:  "You have been telling
grace is ever flowing, grace is ever flowing, but I am not able to realize it."

Sri Bhagavan said: "Yes. Grace is ever flowing. But, Oye, you do not
obstruct its flow."

'you' here means 'I' of the questioner. The ego. The ego obstructs the flow of Grace from Guru.



Arunachala Siva.

All unhappiness is due to the ego; with it comes all your trouble. What does it avail you to attribute to the happenings in life the cause of misery which is really within you?

Dear prasanth,



Yes. Sri Bhagavan says in Arunachala Mahatmyam, Verse 4:

The ego creates the world and the world binds all beings.


The English translation is:

Because they bind the beings of the worlds, know that the relentless karmas become the bondage for Jivas. The effulgent Arunachala is that of which the mere sight suffices to cause them to become non existent.



Arunchala Siva.

To be the Self that you really are is the only means to realize the bliss that is ever yours.

Effort must be made to eradicate the mental tendencies. Knowledge can only remain unshaken after all the mental tendencies are rooted out.

Dear prasanth, srkudai,

Yes. Atma Vichara or Self Inquiry eradicates the vasanas.  Because
the vasanas are built in tendencies due to ego. When the ego goes,
so also the vasanas.

Sri Bhagavan remained unmoved during dhukka and sukha.  Whether it is saltless gruel or a 32 dish bhiksha, Sri Bhagavan treated them alike. One lady from Andhra prepared a lavish lunch with 32 dishes.  Four types of sweets, two types of sambhar, added to this, one buttermilk sambhar - I do not know what you call it. It is called majjike huli in Kannada and Morkuzhambu in Tamizh -, two types of payasams, mixed vegetable rice, plain white rice, four types of pickles, four types of curries, pepper rasam, dhal rasam, curds, buttermilk etc.,. Sri Bhagavan combined everything, and took some three or four fistfuls!  The lady asked: What Bhagavan! You are not tasting each item separately and relishing it. Sri Bhagavan said: Where is the taste for me? All are one taste only!

well said sir. Really with regards to food habits our bhagavan is just amazing.

Wish i would have stayed atleast 1 day in ashram when bhagavan was alive as i would have watched his daily routine so closely sir.

Dear prasanth,

Sri Bhagavan is a phenomenon. Such Jnanis come to this world,
very rarely.

His life and teachings are identical. He was the one who lived as
He taught.

Dear prasanth,

There is something called earth's wobbling. The earth like a fast
rotating top, jerks once in 26000 years.  It happened recently about
2 months back. Even Srimad Bhagavatam has spoken about earth
wobbling.  Like earth's wobbling, births of Jnanis are very occurrences.



Arunachala Siva.

He who thinks he is the doer is also the sufferer.
