What leads to God vision
« on: October 24, 2011, 05:35:24 PM »
The disciple: Bhagavan, what stateof mind leads to God-vision ?

Sri Ramakrishna : Cry to God with a yearning heart and then you will see Him. People will shed a jugful of tears for the sake of their wife or children; they will be carried away by a stream of their own tears for the sake of money; but who sheds a tear for God? Cry for Him, not for show, but with a longing and yearning heart. The rosy light of the dawn comes before the rising sun; likewise
a longing and yearning heart is the sign of God-vision that comes after.

Extreme longing is the surest way to Godvision. Through extreme longing the mind remains fixed on the Supreme Being. One should have faith like that of an innocent child and such longing as a child has when it .wants to see its mother.

Salutations to Bhagavan

Dear Nagaraj,

Sri Bhagavan said that vision of God is quite good in Sadhana but since it is also dual, one should transcend it and go further
beyond.

Dear Subramanian Sir,

I felt. God vision itself really meant the Non Dual Self itself.

Dear Nagaraj,

I am not sure. In one of His talks Sri Bhagavan has said that deva darsanam should move further into Atma darsanam, i.e
Atmanubhuti.
