The truth remains quiet,
Vedas came to describe it, Truth remained quiet
Sramana came to describe it, Truth remained quiet
Jina came to describe it, it Truth remained quiet
Buddha came to describe it, Truth remained quiet
Sages came to describe it, Truth remained quiet
scriptures were written to describe it, Truth remained quiet
charvakas came to denounce it, Truth remained quiet
Christ came to describe it, Truth remained quiet
Prophet came to describe it, Truth remained quiet
They all thought supremacy of their description, Truth remained quiet
others came to describe it, Truth remained quiet
some did not believe, Truth remained quiet
some loved the Truth, Truth remained quiet
some did not mind the Truth, Truth remained quiet
some claimed attainment, Truth remained quiet
some do not claim attainment, Truth remained quiet
and I sang Truth remains quiet, Truth remained quiet,

Dear Nagaraj,

Nice. I think no one thought like this. When a true seeker investigates the Self, he will realize It but thereafter, he will also
remain quiet like Truth.

Arunachala Siva.

Dear Nagaraj,

Once a Western devotee asked Sri Bagavan: 'Should I then leave all my possessions?   (to know the Truth)

Bhagavan: The possessor too!

Arunachala Siva.

...yearning of a guru is greatly killing, sometimes it is always best to yearn for God as he will not come in physical form and leave impressions... you just don't want a Guru.

its very imporant to stay wit the current of clarity when it comes as it can be very easily lost due to lack of tapaa or deligence.

Just clarity !

I had that a few weeks back on reading  Bhagavan on thinking only caused by objects, but there are no objects so don't waste  effort thinking. Then I tried to write about it, but got the impression others didn't  quite  understand what I was saying (not their fault) and so .........  never mind.

That's it.  Never mind - the meaning of clarity.

But thank you Nagaraj. I  do appreciate your words.

Hari...

clarity cannot be really defined, but in general the highest clarity is to know our limitations. This has been of my best torch bearer!

Directing all efforts and love towards the Guru in order to win His ambrosial grace over Brahma Jnana and scriptural knowledge and studies is the highest and the supreme sadhana.

No knowledge is higher than winning the grace of the Guru.

The light does not share its light, its very nature is sharing. The light does not go about negating darkness, there is no darkness in the eyes of sun.

its very important to be very mindful, awake and alert... always! Otherwise, the mind will end up doing something haste.

Never allow 'casualness' the slightest place.

Zen in Time:

In the light of the moment, we are Lost in eternal Now
  As emptiness beckons mysteriously.

Origins:

Eyes closed, see your inner being in detail.  Thus see your true nature.*

* natural state as Sri Bhagavan has said.

           -Vigyana Bhairava, an ancient Hindu Text.
