D:I am now very sure that it is futile to look for God outside of myself.
Cguru:Hmm...
D:I am now convinced that God is within me.
Cguru:So,are you sure that God is only within and not outside?
D:Yes.
Cguru:What is within and outside?
D:'Within' means hidden behind 'my mind' and 'outside' means the 'world ' that i see and interact with in my waking state.
Cguru:Is the world apart from your mind?
D:No,it is not apart from my mind.
Cguru:So,it is not outside of you!
D:It seems that it is not outside of myself.
Cguru:So you need to take into account only the two-yourself and God.
D:Yes.
Cguru:Are you in God or is God in you?
D:!!!
Cguru:God alone is.God alone has become the universe and all Living beings.

One day cguru was sitting under the banyan tree with one hand closed and another hand open.

The disciple said:
d: What does that closed hand signify?
cguru: I am trying to capture space.

d: What does that open hand signify?
cguru: I am trying to release space.

d: Were you able to capture space?
cguru: Can space be captured?

d: Were you able to release space?
cguru: How can you release something which cannot be captured?

d: Then?
cguru: In the junction of this trying one discovers one's relationship with space.

d: I did not understand.
cguru: Don't say that. Say, did I not understand?

d: Still it is confusing.
cguru: Don't say that. Say, Is it not fusing?

d: What?
cguru: That.

d: I find no point in pursuing this conversation.
cguru: The best course therefore is to remain silent.
Homage to the Universal Being...Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ...

cguru was moving around the banyan tree ashram to see the different types of disciples. He came across one disciple who was sitting under a tree.

cguru: Why are you just sitting?
d: I am observing divine lila.

cguru: How?
d: I am waiting for god to give me food. I am waiting for god to give me clothes. I am waiting for god to give me meditation.

cguru: So what is your overall view?
d: Everything is divine lila and we wait for god.

cguru then moved to another disciple who was running about.

cguru: Why are you running about?
d: I am observing divine lila.

cguru: How?
d: I am running to give food to god (as puja offering). I am running to give clothes to god. I am running to give meditation to god.

cguru: So what is your overall view?
d: Everything is divine lila and god waits for us.
Homage to the Universal Being...Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ... Om Shanti ...

silentgreen,
you may like to be introduced to Swami Bananananda!
Swami Bananananda lives in the high branches of the tallest mangrove tree in the Sunderbans Tiger Preserve of the Gangetic delta. He is considered to be a partial manifestation (less than 5% by weight) of Lord Rama's great devotee Hanumanji.

Here is an excerpt from an article featuring our Swami bananandaji:

Q: If you don't mind my asking, Swami, when did you first realize that you were an incarnation of Hanumanji?
A: The first sign, I believe, appeared when I was about three years old. My grandfather used to wear a pair of glasses with bright shiny gold wire rims. One day I sneaked up behind him, jumped on his head, grabbed the glasses and scampered off to hide under the kitchen table. Then when I was about seven I took to climbing to the top of the dining room hutch and throwing peanut shells down into my aunt's plate of dal. A couple of years later during monsoon season I insisted on trying to jump over every puddle I saw in the road, no matter how big it might be. By then we had pretty much figured it out. If you dig deeply into our hole-y books, you'll find that all the signs and symptoms described for a manifestation were in evidence. But enough about me?it is merely a fiery monkey's tale. I thought you had some questions.

Excerpted from 'Global Vedanta' magazine,Fall 2009 edition-Good articles are featured in this edition -Swami Damodarananda of R K Mutt reminiscing on his meeting with Sri Bhagavan and other articles .

Namaskar

cguru: What?

cguru: Sometimes it is difficult to answer your question.
