Pandit (1988)

“Regarded from the view of Time, Brahman is Eternity or Immorality; regarded from the view of
Space, Brahman is Infinity or Universality; regarded from the view of Causality, Brahman is
absolute Freedom.”

Sri Aurobindo

 THE AFFIRMATION of a divine life upon earth and an

immortal sense in mortal existence can have no base unless we recognise not only eternal Spirit as the inhabitant
of this bodily mansion, the wearer of this mutable robe, but
accept Matter of which it is made, as a fit and noble material
out of which He weaves constantly His garbs, builds recurrently
the unending series of His mansions

Taittiriya Upanishad.

 He energised conscious-force (in the austerity of thought) and

came to the knowledge that Matter is the Brahman. For from
Matter all existences are born; born, by Matter they increase
and enter into Matter in their passing hence. Then he went to
Varuna, his father, and said, “Lord, teach me of the Brahman.”
But he said to him: “Energise (again) the conscious-energy in
thee; for the Energy is Brahman.” 

Wilhelm Reich

 “I know that what you call 'God' really exists, but not in the form you think; God is primal cosmic energy, the love in your body, your integrity, and your perception of the nature in you and outside of you.”

 “Though in some sense the Upanishads are the continuation of the Vedic religion, they are in another sense a strong philosophical protest against the religion of the Brahmanas. It is in the

Upanishads that the tendency to spiritual monism, which, in one form or another, characterizes
much of Indian philosophy, was first established whose intuition rather than reason was first
recognized as the true guide of ultimate truth.”

Sri Ramakrishna

 The deeper your prayers echo in your own consciousness, the more audible they are to God.

Hermann Hesse

 “We must become so alone, so utterly alone, that we withdraw into our innermost self. It is a way of bitter suffering. But then our solitude is overcome, we are no longer alone, for we find that our innermost self is the spirit, that it is God, the indivisible.”

 A bubble on the ocean burst, it returns to the ocean. This is the death of the imagined self returning to the source. So why live in and defend a temporary bubble when your nature is vastness?

Joseph P. Kauffman

 “You are just as connected to the Universe as a finger is to a hand, or as a branch is to a tree. The entire cosmos is expressing itself through your being.”



Sri Krishna Prem

 “All that has here been written, all that can be written, is but a web of words, a ladder by whose help we seek to scale the ramparts of Eternity. Viewed by the eye of Wisdom all this clash of world with world, the Sparks, which fly from the Eternal Anvil, are but a vast phantasmagoria. Nothing is out breathed nor anything descends to rise again. All are the visions of the Eternal Mind; the changing finite centers that are us ourselves being but the countless points of view within that mighty whole, “for there is naught in all the world that is not He.”



Srimad-Bhagavatam 8.1.10


"Within this universe, the Supreme Personality of Godhead in His Supersoul feature is present everywhere, wherever there are animate or inanimate beings. Therefore, one should accept only that which is allotted to him; one should not desire to infringe upon the property of others."

Bowl of Saki, November 28, by Hazrat Inayat Khan


Once you have given up your limited self willingly to the Unlimited, you will rejoice so much in that consciousness that you will not care to be small again.

Ashtavakra Gita 2.16

 Oh, the root of misery is duality. There is no other remedy for it except the realization that all objects of experience are unreal and that I am pure, One, Consciousness, and Bliss. 

I Am That - Nisargadatta Maharaj

 Contemplate life as infinite, undivided, ever present, ever active, until you realise yourself as one with it. It is not even very difficult, for you will be returning only to your own natural condition. Once you realise that all comes from within, that the world in which you live has not been projected onto you but by you, your fear comes to an end. Without this realisation you identify yourself with the externals, like the body, mind, society, nation, humanity, even God or the Absolute. But these are all escapes from fear. It is only when you fully accept your responsibility for the little world in which you live and watch the process of its creation, preservation and destruction, that you may be free from your imaginary bondage.

Ramana Maharshi

 The experience of silence alone is the real and perfect knowledge.

Robert Adams

 Not my reality or your reality, but Reality, the Reality, what people call the kingdom of heaven, the kingdom of God. You are already That, but you have so many concepts you cover it up. You have so many feelings and dogmas and attitudes that you cover up the Godliness. So you have to open your heart and let your reality shine through.

Robert Adams

 You cause the thoughts to cease by doing absolutely nothing. By being yourself.

Self Love...

Khalil Gibran

 Jesus was not sent here to teach the people to build magnificent churches and temples amidst the cold wretched huts and dismal hovels. He came to make the human heart a temple, and the soul an altar, and the mind a priest.

The Zohar


The Power of Belief By-Anon I mus


“Your thoughts make you feel the way you do, it is never about

the circumstances. You feel the way you do because you choose to believe in your thoughts.”

J. Krishnamurti

 In understanding yourself completely, you will find love. It is only love that transforms. Without love, there can be no peace and happiness in you and so in the world.

Chogyam Trungpa

 “Just fully being skillful involves total lack of inhibition. We are not afraid to be. We are not afraid to live. We must accept ourselves as being warriors. If we acknowledge ourselves as warriors, then there is a way in, because a warrior dares to be, like a tiger in the jungle.”

Sri Guru Granth Sahib

 " There is only Onkar ( Supreme Reality ), and it is called the truth, It exists in all creation, and it has no fear, It does not hate, and it is timeless, universal and self-existent! You will come to know it through the grace of teachings of the Guru."

Ram Dass


Aldous Huxley


Rainer Maria Rilke



 I am in love with the All-Knowing Lord; the ignorant ones try to hold me back. How could I ever break with the One, who owns our soul and the breath of life?

Devi Upanishad

 I bow to Thee, Goddess, Thou dispeller of gravest fears, vanquisher of obstacles; Thou wearer of great mercy’s form.

Brahma and others know not Her essence; so is She called the Unknowable.

She has no end; so is She called the Endless.

She is not grasped and so is She called the Incomprehensible.

Her birth is not known and so is She called the Unborn.

She alone is present everywhere, and so is She called the One.

She alone wears all forms, and so is She called the Many.

For these reasons is She called the Unknowable, the Endless, the Incomprehensible, the Unknown, the One and the Many.

The Goddess is the source of all mantras: Of all the words the knowledge is Her form. Her conscious form transcends all cognitions; She is the witness of all emptiness.

Beyond Her is nothing; renowned is She as unapproachable; afeared of life, 

I bow to the inaccessible One, bulwark against all sins; the Pilot who steers me across the sea of worldly life.

Henry Miller


...we are a vulgar, pushing mob whose passions are easily mobilized by demagogues, newspaper men, religious quacks, agitators and such like. To call this a society of free peoples is blasphemous. What have we to offer the world beside the superabundant loot which we recklessly plunder from the earth under the maniacal delusion that this insane activity represents progress and enlightenment?

Teachings of Brahmrishi Vishvatma Bawra


Teachings of Brahmrishi Vishvatma Bawra


When the intellect realizes that cosmic intellect is the source of its existence, then the deepest stage begins where the practitioner can realize that manifested form is a projection of unmanifest energy, and unmanifest energy is the power of one supreme consciousness, purusha, the supreme being. Then, the great tranquility beyond description is experienced.

Sri Ramakrishna

"Know yourself and you shall then know God. What is my ego? Is it my hand or foot or flesh or blood or any other part of my body? Reflect well and you will know that there is no such thing as 'I'. The more you peel off the skin of an onion, the more skin only appears - you cannot get any kernel; so when you analyse the ego, it vanishes away into nothingness. What is ultimately left behind is the Atman [soul] - the pure chit [Knowledge Absolute]. God appears when the ego dies."

 Love is the only freedom in the world because it so high lifts the soul, where the laws of humanity and reality of nature are unable to find its way.

Walt Whitman

 To me, every hour of the light and dark is a miracle, every inch of space is a miracle, every square yard of the surface of the earth is spread with the same, every cubic foot of the interior swarms with the same; every spear of grass-the frames, limbs, organs, of men and women, and all that concerns them, all these to me are unspeakably perfect miracles.

Bowl of Saki, November 24, by Hazrat Inayat Khan


God is within you; you are His instrument, and through you He expresses Himself to the external world.

The words 'within oneself' might confuse some people. They might think 'within oneself' means inside one's body; but that is because man is ignorant of himself. Man has a very poor idea of himself, and this keeps him in ignorance of his real self. If man only knew how large, how wide, how deep, how high is his being, he would think, act, and feel differently; but with all his width, depth, and height, if man is not conscious of them he is as small as he thinks himself to be. The essence of milk is butter, the essence of the flower is honey, the essence of grapes is wine, and the essence of life is wisdom.


 The concept of Brahman connects with the concept of Ātman (true self/ spirit). Ātman is the true self which is not adulterated by the Ego (ahaṁkāra). It is immortal, fearless (Prabhavananda, 2019) and indiscernible unlike the empirical body. It is the internal controller (antaryāmin) beyond all of existence with no individualistic characteristics (Lindquist, 2019). Therefore, knowing of the true self connects with knowing of Brahman- transcendence which resides in everyone. The Brahman and the Ātman becomes one and the same (advaita).



Joel Goldsmith

'Your so-called human consciousness is the

shutter that keeps out the infinity of your

own consciousness and, opening wider, let's

in the realization of its infinity. When that

shutter is completely open, there is no

barrier - therefore, no separation or

limitation. You cannot increase your

consciousness because it is already infinite,

but you can open your eyes in awareness of

the infinite nature of your being,'



Rabindranath Tagore

 "It is only the revelation of You as the Infinite that is endlessly new and eternally beautiful in us, and that gives the only meaning to our self when we feel Your rhythmic throb as soul-life, the whole world in our own souls; then are we free."

Jorge Luis Borges

 "Time is the substance from which I am made. Time is a river which carries me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger that devours me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire that consumes me, but I am the fire."

Jorge Luis Bor

Kalu Rinpoche

 Just be a person with a good heart,

that’s the meaning of a truthful Dharma practitioner. We live in illusion and the appearance of things. There is a reality. We are that reality. When you understand this, you see that you are nothing, and being nothing, you are everything. That is all.
