WHAT IS THE ABSOLUTE?

  BECOME THE OBSERVER When you become the observer, everything will have a different meaning.

You become non-attached because that Spiritual Force is permeating the lower, grosser levels...

WHAT IS TRUE SURRENDER?

  From the time of birth, every person is committed to something. When he is conscious of his commitment, that very commitment establishes itself in his little conscious mind, and as he gets older with a greater understanding, the commitment becomes stronger. But what is the nature of...

HOW REAL IS REALITY?

HOW TO OVERCOME WEAKNESS?

HOW TO PREPARE FOR GRACE?

  THE POWER OF GRACE CAN ONLY BE KNOWN THROUGH EXPERIENCE All problems in our lives begin the way we live in duality, viewing everything as separate from us. Speaking, all issues have their solutions built in. No man needs to suffer. No man needs to drive grace...

WHAT ARE YOUR NEEDS?

YOU ARE THE TRINITY

  GRASP THE ESSENCE, THEN DIGEST, ASSIMILATE AND PRACTISE When you read good books, like the Holy Scriptures, you just need to understand the meaning, the essence of words and that very essence you formulate in your own words. In Sanskrit, we have three words meaning: listen, ponder...

THOUGHTS AND MEDITATION

  THE IMPERSONAL VERSUS THE PERSONAL GOD The God we pray to is the Personal God, the entire manifestation or the emanation of the Universe, and beyond the Personal God, we have the Impersonal God, that energy. Everything radiates or emanates something; the flower emanates fragrance, and everything...
