Practise bhakti and don't worry about
what happens to the body

Realisation is of Perfection.
It cannot be comprehended by the mind.

The known and unknown together
form `the all'.

After transcending the mind you remain as the Self.
The present knowledge is only of limitation.
That Knowledge is unlimited.
Being so it cannot be comprehended by this knowledge.
Cease to be a knower, then there is perfection.

Leave the thought-free state to itself. Do not think of it as pertaining to you.
Just as when you walk, you involuntarily take steps, so too in your actions;
but the thought-free state is not affected by your actions.

When told that you are not the ego, realise the Reality. Why do you still identify yourself with the ego? It is like saying, "Don't think of the monkey while taking medicine" - it is impossible. Similarly it happens with common folk. When the Reality is mentioned why do you continue to meditate Sivoham [?] or Aham Brahmasmi [?]? The significance must be traced and understood. It is not enough to repeat the bare words or think of them. Reality is simply the loss of the ego. Destroy the ego by seeking its identity. Because the ego is no entity it will automatically vanish and Reality will shine forth by itself. This is the direct method.

A day will dawn when
you will yourself laugh at
your past efforts.

The quest "Who am I??" is the axe with which to cut off the ego.

Even the ignorant man sees only the Self when he sees objects.
But he is confused and identifies the Self with the object, i.e.,
the body and with the senses and plays in the world.

Subject and object - all merge in the Self.
There is no seer nor objects seen.
The seer and the seen are the Self.
There are not many selves either.
All are only one Self.

Things may turn out differently from what they look apparently.
Distress often leads men to faith in God.

Samadhi transcends mind and speech and cannot be described.
For example, the state of deep slumber cannot be described;
samadhi state can still less be explained.

Consciousness and unconsciousness are only modes of the mind.
Samadhi transcends the mind.


You will know only when you are in samadhi.

Annamalai the Self, the Eye
Behind the Eye of mind which sees
The eye and all other senses
Which know the sky and other elements,
The Being which contains, reveals, perceives
The Inner Sky that shines within the  Heart
When the mind FREE OF THOUGHT turns inward,
Annamalai APPEARS as my own Self
True, GRACE IS NEEDED. Love is added.
BLISS  wells up.

(Atma Vidya Kirtanam, Verse 5)

Arunachala Siva.
