"Regulation of life, such as getting up at a fixed hour, bathing, doing mantra-japa, etc., all this is for people who do not feel drawn to Self-enquiry, or are not capable of it. But for those who can practise this method all rules and disciplines are unnecessary."

"By means of a moderate quantity of sattvic (pure) food, which is superior to all other rules and regulations of self discipline, the sattvic or pure quality of the mind will grow and Self-enquiry will be helped."

Desr Hari,


Sri Bhagavan solved the "mysterious" at the age of 17. That is why, nothing else was mysterious to Him.  He, witheout reading   
reading the theory of relartivity, when a devotee explained that to Him, He answered that there are two observers for
looking a particle differently, they appeared different.  But there is only OBSERVER THAT IS GOD.

Arunachala Siva.

Yes, the Source of all religions, science, art and so on is One and it is mysterious. It is mysterious only because it is unknown. It is unknown only because of our ignorance.

"People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway."
[Mother Teresa]
