How to Cultivate Right Thinking

Every thought has an image, form, dimension, weight, shape, colour, etc. Thought is as much matter as a piece of stone. A table is a mental image plus some external something. Whatever you see outside has a counterpart in the mind. The pupil is a small round thing in the eye and the retina is…

The Mind becomes the Body

The body with its organs, is no other than the mind. The physical body is the outward manifestation of the mind. Mind is the subtle form of the physical body. The mind, contemplating on the body, becomes the body itself. Then, enmeshed in it, is afflicted by it. All bodies have their seat in the…

Mind and Master

Mind is not a gross thing, visible and tangible; its existence is nowhere seen; its magnitude cannot be measured; it does not require space in which to exist. Mind and matter are two aspects or subject and object of one and the same all-full Brahman-who is itself neither and yet includes both. Mind precedes matter;…

Mind is All

Mind alone is the whole world, with its pains, old age, death, sin, earth, water, fire, air and ether, and all the internal organs. Mind binds man. He who has controlled his mind is a veritable god on earth. We live in a world of thoughts. First there is the thought and then there is…

The Source of the Mind

Creation, preservation, destruction, veiling and blessing are God’s five kinds of actions. God is the ruler, the knower of the heart, and the prompter. He helps the student in a variety of ways – through dreams, the inner voice, talking through the mouths of others in conversation and in advice from friends. Eternal bliss, supreme…

The Secret of Yoga Sadhana

I solemnly affirm that the disease of birth and death can be removed only through the divine panacea of mind-mastery; not through any other means. The path of annihilation of the mind will be most beneficial to you and will never generate the least of pains. If the mind is destroyed by dint of discrimination,…

The Divine Secret

True wisdom is love. The way is only one-love divine-that is all. Love divine is a great power; it is the basis of all religious life. Divine love has no sex. It sees God in all and all in God. Where love is, there God is. From love the world is born, by love it…

Universal Love

The only sara-vastu (thing of value) in this world is prema (or divine love). It is eternal, infinite and undecaying. Physical love is moha (passion or infatuation). Universal love is divine love. Cosmic love (visva prema) and universal love are synonymous terms. God is love. Love is God. Selfishness, greed, egoism, vanity, pride and hatred…

Seek God Within

Seek God within you, in your heart. Seek him not elsewhere. Seek him with faith. Seek not God for favours. Such favours will not bring you near to God. Cultivate nikriya bhakti (motiveless devotion) – pine for his grace and mercy. Quicken and enliven your faith in God. Let the flame of faith grow brighter…
