? Realized State ?
« on: October 14, 2011, 04:28:02 PM »
Suddenly, I began to wonder about the "state" of a jnani.

While I am aware that it is no use knowing the "State" of a jnani, for whatever we know is a product of the mind only. While Bhagavan has also said that only a Jnani can know a Jnani's state. Well it is really needless really and would end up being a futile effort in the end. Still, it was a surprise really, a wonderment really, when this thought occurred about the "Realized State"

Friends, I just want your thoughts on this. What you think is the "Realized State" ?

I request you to be brief, as in it would be good, if you can write in small sentences, yes, am being very unreasonable :) though, please feel free to write a brief explanation if you want to.

For example:

"The realized state is a state where there are no thoughts, but only awareness"

Thank you

Salutations to Bhagavan

seeing the same self in every one i.e having advaita bhavana and knowing what is essential in life and finally importandly having peek desire to get immense grace of god.

Example: when bhagavan heard about 63 saints he just wished to be like them.

saying "realized state" is only the mind trying to make something of nothing .
it is not a state of mind .
it is what is "stateless" .
this thoughtless awareness is who we really are .    :)
simply stop telling the story of the self and see who you are without it

We can make only statements about the realized state. The realized state is known only when it is experienced.

Arunachala Siva.

In my own  experience,  there is no difference between temporary and permanent realisation states.

When it comes suddenly, it gives itself fully, it wont have time or space or permanent or temporary component,    but the ego equates to death and come out of it.  If it does not do that,  the ego will be consumed once for all,  leading to videha mukthi or jeevan mukthi.

But in both cases,  ego wants to come back, it will.
