WHAT TO EAT AND DRINK?

  YOUR SYSTEM HAS TO ADJUST ITSELF FOR MORE REFINED FOOD AND DRINKS People on the spiritual path have to have specific observances. I recommend a book by Swami Vivekananda called “Raja Yoga”, or I have done two tapes on Raja Yoga (UK 1978 – 03 & UK...

WHAT IS A MIRACLE?

  Christ did not perform more miracles than other Masters. We feel that because we are more oriented to our background and what we have learned. But if we study other Scriptures and mythologies, we will find many more miracles being performed. But what is a miracle? I...

HOW TO MAKE DIVINITY CONCRETE?

  IN MEDITATION, THERE IS NO FOCUS REQUIRED Focusing does necessarily involve some kind of concentration, and concentration is something which is at a level not as deep as meditation. In meditation, we go beyond focusing or concentration; we go beyond contemplation, and then we enter into the...

FIND YOUR OWN WAY

  JNANA-, KARMA- AND BHAKTI YOGA Apart from the known religions, there have been many other unknown teachings. Man is entitled to form his philosophy. There is nothing wrong with that at all. Conviction, honesty and sincerity in what you believe are the most critical factors you must...

AN AGE OF ENLIGHTENMENT?

  Some Teachers have promised an Age of Enlightenment where the entire world will be enlightened. If we study known history, this has not happened so far, but these teachers saying there will be an Age of Enlightenment have not told us how many million years. There can...

EVERYTHING IS PURE

  The absolute is forever a pure entity, and being a pure entity is always a simple entity. All the relativity that we perceive around us is always very complex. Primal simplicity has become complicated, and we have forgotten how to recognise clarity because of the complexity. It...

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 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...

WHAT IS DHARMA?

  It is so surprising that Dharma and Karma rhyme so well, and yet Dharma and Karma are just but the obverse and reverse side of the same coin. It is a misconception to believe that Karma is wrong; you have good and bad Karma. Good Karma means...

TAKE A CALCULATED RISK

  WE CLING TO THE TRANSITORY VALUE OF LIFE In the relative life, the only thing that is sure is change, and we cling to the changes, the transitory value of life because we find security. I have given you an example before, in the Himalayas, a person...

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,...

  DiSCRIMINATION The purpose of meditation is primarily to integrate oneself, integrate the three aspects of ourselves: the body, the mind, and the Spirit. This can never be accomplished overnight, and it takes time where a gradual integration takes place if we do our spiritual practices regularly. Therefore,...
