Key to Perfection

Meditate on the atman; you will enjoy peace and bliss. The more you grow in aspiration and meditation the more God-like you grow, for in meditation in the light of the Lord. Meditate and charge your battery by contact with God. Dive deep into the chambers of your heart through profound and silent meditation and…

Poverty Is in the Heart

Poverty is in the heart. You don’t own anything because you didn’t bring anything with you when you came, and you’re not going to take anything with you when you go. It’s all given to you by God. When you’ve emptied your mind of ownership, that’s renunciation or poverty. I will give you a small…

Mediate on the Lord

Meditate on the Lord, the inner ruler, the indweller of your heart. The lotus of your heart will blossom; the sun of wisdom will shine. The darkness of the heart will end. The five klesas (psychic sources of sorrow) will be annihilated. The three fires (internal, external and supernatural suffering) will be extinguished. Sins and…

Moksha Gita, 7

Avidya (ignorance) is malina satva (weakened purity). It is the upadhi (limiting adjunct) of jlva (individual soul). It is the karana sarira (causal body) of the individual soul. Avidya is anandamaya kosha. Avidya is a false perception by which the ignorant jiva takes the body and intellect as pure, permanent and a source of pleasure.…

Respect All: Adore One
