(Shvetashvatara Upanishad)

 “All is change in the world of the senses,

But changeless is the supreme Lord of Love. Meditate on him, be absorbed by him, Wake up from this dream of separateness.”



He who realises Brahman is Brahman Itself The Divine is the base —and is also the superstructure. The beads are many, but the interconnecting, integrating string of the rosary is one. So also for the entire world of living beings; God, the permanent, omnipresent Parabrahman, the Supreme Divine Consciousness, is the base. “I am God (soham)”, “He is I”, “I am that”, all these axioms indicate that even those that differentiate themselves under names and forms are in fact God Himself. This is why the Vedas proclaim, “He who realises Brahman is verily Brahman Itself (Brahmavith Brahmaiva Bhavathi)”. This awareness is the awareness of the reality

Sri Aurobindo

 In the deep there is a greater deep, in the heights a greater

height. Sooner shall man arrive at the borders of infinity than at the fulness of his own being. For that being is infinity, is God — I aspire to infinite force, infinite knowledge, infinite bliss. Can I attain it? Yes, but the nature of infinity is that it has no end. Say not therefore that I attain it. I become it. Only so can man attain God by becoming God.

Kirpal Singh


The only way to conquer these is to realise The Atman (The Self) , at which, Maya, which dements the intellect of the egoistic man, melts ow absurdly meaningless all the arguments of Maya truly are; he discovers that there is no place in the Atman for the mind, so full of sankalpa and vikalpa: will and doubt.

In the Atman there is.

This is, indeed, the condition of Vishnu, realised by those that reject the body and the ego as being their Self. These bhaktas (devotees) love God to the exclusion of everything else.

Ram Dass

 The universe is made up of experiences that are designed to burn out our reactivity, which is our attachment, our clinging to pain, to pleasure, to fear, to all of it.


 “Meditating on the lotus of your heart,

in the center is the untainted; the exquisitely pure, clear, and sorrowless; the inconceivable; the unmanifest, of infinite form; blissful, tranquil, immortal; the womb of Brahma.”

Prashna Upanishad

 “The whole mantram AUM

Indivisible, interdependent, Goes on reverberating in the mind… Established in this cosmic vibration, The sage goes beyond fear, decay, and death To enter into infinite peace.”

(Yajur Veda)

 “O seeker, know the true nature of your soul, and identify yourself with it completely.

O Lord, (may we attain) the everlasting consciousness of Supreme Light and Joy. May we resolve to dedicate our life to the service of humankind, And uplift them to Divinity.”

Power Of Devotion


 NIGUMA “This variety of desirous and hateful thoughts that strands us in the ocean of cyclic existence once realized to be without intrinsic nature, makes everything a golden land, child. If you meditate on the illusion-like nature of illusion-like phenomena, actual illusion-like buddhahood will occur through the power of devotion.”



Also this is said to be the light of lights That is beyond darkness; It is knowledge, the object of knowledge and that which is to be attained through knowledge.

It is seated in the hearts of all... For I am the foundation of Brahman, Of the Immortal and the Imperishable, And of everlasting virtue, And of absolute bliss.

Srimad Bhagavatam 3.25.16 – 17

 When one is completely cleansed of the impurities of lust and greed produced from the false identification of the body as “I” and bodily possessions as “mine,” one’s mind becomes purified. In that pure state he transcends the stage of so-called material happiness and distress.

At that time the soul can see himself to be transcendental to material existence and always self-effulgent, never fragmented, although very minute in size.

Sant Shivnarayan Swami


 Looking inward go inward and see the light permeating within…Lo! By closing the eyes behold the burst of light.

Katha Upanishad 2.15 – 17

 Yama Replied :- That goal which all the Vedas glorify, desiring which people practice Brahmacharya (A Life of Continence, Peace and Selfless Service), that goal, I tell thee briefly – It is Aum. This word is indeed Brahman. This word is indeed Supreme. He who knows this word attains the peace he desires. This is the best support; This is the highest support. He who knows this support is glorified in the world of Brahman.”

In the Beginning was Conciousness by Seyyed Hossein Nasr

 " They would realize that as human

beings we are given the intelligence to know the One Who is the Origin and End of all things, who is Sat (Being), Chit (Consciousness), and Ä€nanda (Bliss), and to realize that this knowledge itself is the ultimate goal of human life, the crown of human existence, and what ultimately makes us human beings who can discourse with the trees and the birds as well as with the angels and who are on the highest level the interlocutors of that Supreme Reality who has allowed us to say “I” but who is ultimately the I of all I’s."

Omkarananda Saraswati


May you all move towards the Home of eternal Light, Wisdom and Bliss and in this way fulfil the purpose of your living on earth. May God bless you all to walk in the Way of His Light. May His Grace descend upon you all most abundantly. OM




There is no doubt of this .

The term " all " is not real .

The " past " , the " future " , and the " present "

as well as activity are ever nonexistent .

(Maitri Upanishad)

 There is something beyond our mind which abides in silence within our mind. It is the supreme mystery beyond thought. Let one's mind and one's subtle body rest upon that and not rest on anything else. 

(Mundaka Upanishad

 As the web issues out of the spider, and is withdrawn;

As plants sprout from the earth, As hair grows from the body, Even so, the sages say, This universe springs from the deathless Atman (Brahman). The source of life. 

Chandogya Upanishad 3.14.3 - 3.14.4

 This is my Soul in the innermost heart, greater than the earth, greater than the aerial space, greater than these worlds. This Soul, this Self of mine is that Brahman.

Michael James

 For us to attain such direct non-dual experience of our own real

self, all the guidance required can be found expressed in an extremely clear and simple manner in the teachings of Sri Ramana. If we read and understand his teachings, there will be no need for us to study any other scriptures or sacred writings, because from his teachings we will learn that the truth does not lie outside us in any books, but only within us, in the innermost core of our being, and that the only means to experience it is therefore to turn our attention selfwards to know the reality of the consciousness by which we know all other things.

Adhyatma Upanishad

 “Liberated from the grip of egoism, like the moon (after the eclipse), full, ever blissful, self-luminous, one attains one’s essence.”

Sant Maharishi Mehi


The stream of celestial nectar is flowing from the subtle canal of the sushumna nerve. Like a fish the consciousness current is moving upstream.15 Like a fish making its way upstream, the mind travels with consciousness away from the senses (the current) with great difficulty. (This will seem to the mind a difficult and “unnatural” course, as the mind is habituated to move toward the senses and the sensory objects.)

Sant Dadudayal Ji

 Asks his disciples to seek the Divine within:" O benevolent one! Enter in your inner self, and search. He [God] is very near to you. Abandon all your worldly desires and distractions. By inverting your immature consciousness current (which tends to get distracted by senses) get established, in the self [within]"

Sant Kabir says:


By withdrawing (from the sense organs) and becoming absorbed in one’s own self the infinite light dawns and manifests Turn inward and move forward by gathering your dispersed mind When the water of a vessel (individual soul) merges back into the river (Inner Being; God) then we call this the state of supreme wisdom.
