Stray thoughts...

On death -

Say you dream yourself travelling from one place to another, talk chit chat with somebody, and some such other activities...

Then its time and you wake up from your dream!

What happened to you in dream? You died there!

That is all death too! You die there tto wake up here! We will die here to wake up elsewhere!

When we look closely, its not exciting right?

The Rishis claim realise the Self and transcend this dream of birth and death! Anyone is free to do so!

Stray thoughts...

Though the cow is full of milk, ever ready to give away all its milk, it cannot itself give milk to the calf. It is upto the calf to reach out to the cow and drink milk. So too, a seeker, has to milk the ambrosia of Truth-milk from the Guru.



सर्वोपनिषदो गाव: दोग्धा गोपालनंदन: |
पार्थो वत्स: सुधी: भोक्ता दुग्धं गीतामॄतं महत् ||
 
All Upanishads are (like)cows, Gopala nandana (Shrikrishna) is their keeper. Intelligent Partha (Arjuna) is the calf who enjoys the milk and splendid GeetAmRit is the milk of these cows. (Geeta is the precise summary of all Upanishadas.)

Sometimes, all that one needs is just love and all that one needs to get is just love and all that is to know is just love! Nothing heals more than an unconditional pure love. Jnana need not just be the Self alone. Sometimes it needs to be realised as love, it can never be realised as Self.

Some times we need not even realise the Self. Sometimes one just needs to love. This itself is realisation!

Love is the greatest healer! Nothing heals more than love. Infact, the greatest take-away from Bhagawan and Ramakrishna was only their love. Jnana-stuffs were only secondary.

For all the 3 maladies i.e.

Adyatmika, Adibhautika and Adidaivika,

Love heals very quickly.

Healing itself is Jnana.

By simply being, (as what Bhagawan says) abundant love is generated to the universe!

Simply being is to be at absolute peace with oneself. Being absolute peace with oneself is love - Ananda.

Sometimes, jnana or realisation may not just result by meditation or any other spiritual practices, it can only be realised in the very precarious situation or station of our lives where we are placed currently.
