Quote
it would do immense good to man, if he were to disbelieve God and put trust on his own self for God does not need our belief on Him to shower His love.

Yes,and likewise, it would also do him immense good if he were to pack off all the gurus,masters and saints  and discover the immensity of the spirit that is his true Nature.

WHY art thou silent! Is thy love a plant
Of such weak fibre that the treacherous air
Of absence withers what was once so fair?
Is there no debt to pay, no boon to grant?
Yet have my thoughts for thee been vigilant--
Bound to thy service with unceasing care,
The mind's least generous wish a mendicant
For nought but what thy happiness could spare.
Speak--though this soft warm heart, once free to hold
A thousand tender pleasures, thine and mine,
Be left more desolate, more dreary cold
Than a forsaken bird's-nest filled with snow
'Mid its own bush of leafless eglantine--
Speak, that my torturing doubts their end may know!


(William Wordsworth)

शनैरर्थः शनैः पन्थाः शनैः पर्वतमारुहेत् ।
शनैर्विद्या च धर्मश्च व्यायामश्च शनैः शनैः ॥


shanairarthaH shanaiH panthAH shanaiH parvatamAruhet |
shanairvidyA cha dharmashcha vyAyAmashcha shanaiH shanaiH ||

Slowly slowly gradually, earn your livelyhood (that is sufficient)
Slowly gradually, travel your path, your journey
Slowly gradually, climb the mountain
Slowly gradually, (diligently) acquire knowledge
Slowly gradually, follow the dictum of Dharma (righteousness)
Slowly slowly gradually, exert yourself

Exhibit not thy Vaasana, but thy Nature.

यथा तालं विना रागः यथा मानं विना नृपः ।
यथा दानं विना हस्ती तथा ज्ञानं विना यतिः ॥


yathA tAlam vinA rAgaH yathA mAnam vinA nRupaH ।
yathA dAnam vinA hastI tathA jnAnam vinA yatiH ॥

A seer without knowledge is as useless as music without timing,
king without dignity or an elephant without rut.

Stray thoughts...

Liberation is only for the bound
Concentration is only for the agitation
Enquiry is only for the non enquiry
Abidance is only for the non abidance
Being is only for the non being
That is only for this

Stray thoughts...

In one and all, there is inherently the shine of Supreme God Head or Absolute Self Realisation, great repository of knowledge, it is too little of significance in the whole scheme! What really matters most is whether:

We have vanquished Anger, the first and foremost.
We have vanquished Ego, the self inflicted right to defend or negate.
We have vanquished Emotions, Attachments and Desires.
We have vanquished the pains of Afflictions.
We have vanquished Greed, Jealousy, Hatred.
We have vanquished Violance in thought, word and deed.
We have vanquished Restraint (a need to self check, indicates the existence of Malaas as above)

All spiritual practices are primarily for the annihilation of the above, and lest for any attainment of salvation as such, which is just a residue!

Stray thoughts...

Being under the sway of Vaasanaas simply means dreaming while awake!

Stray thoughts...

Sun is worshipped because it remains even in illusions, dreams, while we are asleep and while we are awake!

Such is the Self or God.

Stray thoughts...

There is a point or a center bereft of pains and pleasures. Pains and pleasures become known only by that point or center. Know that thoroughly somehow!

Wilfully reject the companionship with the mind. Remain divorced from it at all times!

Dear Sri Nagaraj Ji,

I love your beautiful insights!

Thanks very much.
Pranam,

Dear Sri Anil ji,

Thanks so much, yes they are indeed so resonating from within myself too! I enjoy these as passively as even you have :-) they emerge of their own in the great aMrita Matanam, the great Churning of Mind, that spits out some sparks from within.

Pranams,
