THE BASIS OF ALL RELIGIONS

  IN OUR TEACHING, WE GO BEYOND ALL DOGMATIC BELIEFS If someone asks me, “Are you a Christian?” I would say, “Yes.” If someone asks me, “Are you a Muslim?” I would say, “Yes.” If someone asks me, “Are you a Buddhist? Hindu?” I would say “Yes” all...

THE WAY OUT OF DIFFICULTIES

  WORK CAN ALSO BECOME A SPIRITUAL PATH Being on this spiritual path does not mean one must shirk all one’s worldly responsibilities. The body needs food; after all, what is your body? Nothing but food. It is the food that is eaten by a person that produces...

WHAT IS GOD?

  Everyone and everything are Divine; what man observes is just the manifestation of the Manifestor. Because man functions only with his five senses, and the five senses are very limited because we usually use only a tiny fraction of our minds. The fraction is so small that...

THE VALUE OF BODY & MIND

  WE ARE SUBJECTED TO THE WORKINGS OF NATURE There is no difference between body and mind, and the difference would be subtle; in other words, the body exists on a grosser level than the mind. The mind, which also matters, exists on a more subtle level. Being...

THE MEANING OF TRUE ACCEPTANCE

  NO ONE ON EARTH REMOVES ALL THEIR SAMSKARAS As we have discussed before, all the impressions that we have had form what is known as our ego. No one on earth, not even the greatest man that has ever lived, including Krishna, Christ or Buddha, could get...

THE ABSOLUTE JUST “IS”

  EVEN THE AVATAR HAS EGO When it comes to a great teacher, an Avatar, an Incarnation who has come to teach the path for people to reach this level, he has taken upon himself an individuality. Suppose you can picture yourself an ice cream cone from the...

STRETCHING THE EGO

  It is a misconception that one must get rid of one’s ego to fulfil one’s potential. That is not possible. If man remains an embodied being, there will be ego. In the grosser person, the ego would be expressed in a gross value, and in a more...

WE ARE THINKING BEINGS

  There is only one way to express our actions in daily activity, and the component of that way is to live a better life in our waking state consciously. We can do it. We are thinking beings. We can discriminate, and if we cannot determine, we can...

WHAT ARE SAMSKARAS?

  Samskaras are not things that are impressed upon something. According to ancient philosophers, there is something called the mind-stuff of which the mind is composed. But the mind-stuff is composed of nothing else but thoughts, and thoughts become self-existent once thought is thought. It has its motion,...

MAN CAN ACHIEVE WHATEVER

  Man can achieve anything the mind is capable of thinking. This is a very common law, a very elementary law that if you keep thinking of a certain object, you can materialise the object. We are not talking of magical voodoo; that is nonsense. But if you...

EVERYTHING IS PURE

  MAN SEE THINGS TO BE IMPURE BECAUSE HIS MIND IS LIMITED The Absolute is forever a pure entity, and being a pure entity, it is always a simple entity. All the relativity that we perceive around us is always very complex. The primal simplicity has become complex,...
