I am you, you am I

Friends, this is a wonderful small, quote of Jnaneshwar:

Jnanadeva says to Changadeva:

Your listening to my words is like my own hand accepting the clasp of my other hand.

(Changadev Pashasthi)

Salutations to Bhagavan

dear Nagaraj,

Changadeva is said to have lived for 1800 years due to yogic powers, but with Jnana Bodham. It is Mukta Bai who taught him
Jnana Margam and Self Realization.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear i,

yes, sir, to this day, i have never come across another work that could surpass what Jnaneshwar has expressed in his Amrithanubhava, his ambrosial experience. Even a layman can enjoy the ultimate bliss of nondual truth. i realy mean to say, a truly sincere sadhaka (no matter, if one is a layman) can experience the nondual bliss, at the same time, without being deluded. so simple are these verses.

i make sure i carry this book with me where ever i go, whether i forget anything else or not!

it gives me goosbumps, thrills, to read the verses from Amrithanubhava.

It is humanly impossible, and it was written when Jnaneshwar was just 19 years of age.

sigh!

i had been to Alandi, his Jeeva Samadhi some 6 years back. i still remember those moments very vividly.

Dear Nagaraj,

Amritanubhava is a glorious treatise on Advaita. Jnana Dev's similes are quite new.

Arunachala Siva,
