All nature is mysterious,from the plant,to the bird and the man,
for God is immanent in all.
He pulls the curtain of mystery just to the one who loves Him truly,
just to the one with a pure heart.
God is unfathomable energy
and the man carries in himself that same energy.
When these energies harmonize,
what paradise is that,even here on earth,
what joy and all-embracing love!

Father Tadej of Vitovnica

The Supreme Reality manifests itself in innumerable ways.
Infinite in number are its names and shapes.
All arise, all merge in the same ocean, the source of all is one.
Looking for causes and results is but the pastime of the mind.
What is, is lovable.
Love is not a result, it is the very ground of being.
Wherever you go, you will find Being, Consciousness and Love.
Why and what for make preferences?

Without you the instruments would die.
One sits close beside you. Another takes a long kiss.
The tambourine begs, Touch my skin so I can be myself.

Let me feel you enter each limb bone by bone,
that what died last night can be whole today.

Why live some soberer way, and feel you ebbing out?
I won't do it.

Either give me enough wine or leave me alone,
now that I know how it is
to be with you in constant conversation.

Out in a downpour

Out in a downpour
in a sopping wet skirt.
And you have gone to a distant country.
Unbearable heart,
letter after letter
just asking when,
my lord,
when are you coming?

Mirabai

whose Rivers and Mountains, and Birds and Animals has been Touched by Your Merciful Glances,
and moreover, whose Cowhed Girls has been embraced by You within Your Arms;
the Touch which is eagerly desired even by Sri.

I can be without anyone
but not without You.
You twist my heart,
dwell in my mind
and fill my eyes...


You are my joy,
i can't be without You.

O Alchemist of my Soul,
Essence of all Truth,
Once Your cure appeared
everything else lost its meaning.

When by the flood of your tears,
the inner and the outer have fused into one,
you will find Her
Whom you sought with such anguish,
nearer than the nearest,
the very breath of life,
the very core of every heart.

A valuable lesson that Bhagavan taught by entering the kitchen and participating in the cooking was that
one has to rely on and completely abide by divine will. To surrender and accept how the divine guides
us is grace. As Annamalai Swami who served as a kitchen assistant for a short time recalled, "One
morning, when there was virtually no food in the ashram, I saw Bhagavan take what little ingredients we
had and begin to cook a meal. He had enough faith that Arunachala would send more before the
cooking was over. It was about five thirty in the morning when Bhagavan began to clean a handful of
broken rice. He washed it in a pot, removed all the small stones from it and started cooking it on a
charcoal stove. I found his activities rather strange and perplexing as the rice would not even be
sufficient for one person. As the rice came to a boil, a devotee appeared with two litres of milk. When
the rice was cooked, Bhagavan put a larger vessel on the stove and began cooking the rice and milk
together. A few minutes later, another devotee came with an offering of raisins and sugar candy.
Bhagavan washed the offering and put it in the pot. At about six thirty, when the cooking was almost
finished, a party of devotees arrived from Kumbakonam, bringing with them a big pot containing idlis,
chutney, vadas, special hill bananas and some cups made of dry banana leaves. These dried banana
cups were what we needed to eat Bhagavan's homemade payasam (rice pudding). At seven, after
Bhagavan had taken his bath, we all sat down and ate a sumptuous breakfast."

I have in search of my father and in obedience to His command started from here.
This is only embarking on a virtuous enterprise.

When a man is asleep, he does not feel fear,
even if a snake were to go across his body.
Fear is the mind.
When you are all things, what are you afraid of?

When you depend,you gradually become weak,you become feeble.
You are incapable of thinking clearly.
This is a fact.

As long as the mind tries to change
its stupidity into something else,it remains stupid.
But if the mind says-
'I realize that i am stupid and i want to understand
what stupidity is,therefore
i shall go into it,
i shall observe how it comes into being,'
then that very process of inquiry
brings about a fundamental transformation.
