(More writings of Sri T.L. Mahanandhar)
Listen about guru, the real,
beyond one and two.
real master is guru,
therefore perfection is guru.
Ego also imposes itself to be a guru
in this imperfect world of ignorance.
This is the difference between
GURU and UPAGURU,
knowledge and ignorance,
unborn and born,
truth and untruth,
real fire and artificial fire.
GURU is all-pervading.
He is in you.
Search within and realise
the true GURU.
The source of knowledge,
life of the ignorant world,
is no other than you,
This is love.
This love is
behind your body
behind your personality
behind your ignorance.
This we call
FOUNTAIN OF LOVE
which is ever-shining
on its own.
From time unknown
to time unknown
HE is the one who is beyond
your positive and negative
attitude of love.
TRUE LOVE IS AS IT IS
This is love.
You have understood
love is everywhere.
It is inside your ego, mind and intellect,
it is above your head,
it is beneath your feet,
it is in your bone cells,
it is inside your brain brain cells,
it is inside your nerve cells,
it is inside your blood cells,
it is inside your muscle cells,
it is inside your skin cells,
- with this one can understand,
where is it not?
This pure love.
HE is all over the universe.
The tiniest pollen and amoeba
are filled to the brim with this pure love.
That is why HE alone is
equally equal to all.
HE is with all
so HE is beyond all
so HE is Truth
so HE is pure
so HE is love.
No way to get out of love.
No place to hide from HIM.
Once you know this truth, this love,
you will also start to love
because you have realized
you are no other than love.
For the real GURU alone
fountain of love.
A PERFECT COIN
A COMPLETE COIN
HAS NOTHING TO DO
TO BECOME A COIN
SO IS SAHAJ SAMADHI.
THIS IS YOU, THE REAL.
A COMPLETE COIN HAS TWO SIDES
AND THE EDGE ALL AROUND.
THIS WE CALL A PERFECT COIN.
THIS SIDE IS A COIN
THAT SIDE IS A COIN
AND THE EDGE IS ALSO A COIN.
BUT YOUR THIS SIDE
AND THAT SIDE
AND THE EDGE
ARE ONLY PARTS OF THE COIN.
IN YOUR EYES,
IN YOUR CONCEPT,
THERE IS THIS SIDE,
AND THE EDGE.
YOUR KNOWLEDGE ALSO
IS THE KNOWLEDGE
OF THE SIDES AND THE EDGE,
BUT WHEN YOU HEAR ABOUT
THE OPPOSITE SIDE
WHY DO YOU DISAGREE
WITH EACH OTHER?
WHY DO YOU DO SO?
LACK OF REAL KNOWLEDGE
MAKES YOU BEHAVE THIS WAY.
YOUR BEHAVIOUR ALWAYS
PUSHES YOU INTO THE POCKET
OF ACCEPTANCE AND REJECTION.
THIS IS IGNORANCE.
HAS SEIZED YOUR KNOWLEDGE,
THE KNOWLEDGE THAT IS
SOLID AND TRUE.
THIS IGNORANCE ALONE
HATCHES OUT EGO
AND THEN THIS EGO,
THE PRODUCT OF IGNORANCE
GETS CONFUSED AT EVERY STEP
DUE TO LACK OF KNOWLEDGE
AND RUNS TO IGNORANCE
AGAIN AND AGAIN.
THUS THIS UNREAL EGO
IN ASSOCIATION WITH IGNORANCE
ONE AFTER ANOTHER
AND THIS IS HOW
IT REMAINS FAR BEHIND
THE REAL KNOWLEDGE,
TO GET RID OF THIS IGNORANCE COMPLETELY
TO GET OUT OF THIS DELUSIVE CLUTTER
THE ONLY WAY, THE RIGHT MEANS,
IS TO DIVE DEEP - DEEP - DEEP
WITHIN YOUR SELF.
REMAIN AS THAT VOID IS.
REMAINING INSIDE THE VOIDNESS,
TRY TO BE VOID AS MUCH AS YOU CAN
WITHOUT DOING ANYTHING.
THE MORE YOU DEVELOP THIS PRACTICE,
THE MORE YOU WILL MELT
LIKE A BALL OF ICE
THAT MELTS AWAY
WITHOUT ANY EFFORT.
DO IT REGULARLY AS MUCH AS YOU CAN.
GRADUALLY DEVELOPING THIS PRACTICE
GO DEEPER AND DEEPER.
YOUR CONSTANT PRACTICE
ON THE PATH OF TRUTH,
ON THE PATH OF SELF-REALIZATION
WILL CERTAINLY MAKE YOU REALIZE
THE TRUTH ETERNAL
AS IT IS.
THIS IS THE STATE WE CALL
The common mind of egoistic people is fastidious. Such a sensitive ego always runs after objects of this delusive world.
Ambitious ego ever keeps in its mind to give defeat to others. This nature of mind develops a destructive environment and always thinks evil of others.
Showing arrogance, ego moves in the world to entrap others and then finally breathes its last breath, with great humiliation, being caught in the trap it had designed to catch others.
This is how hoggish ego ends its most precious human life for nothing.
Rise above your selfish ego, this ignorance. Only then will you be ever immortal. Liberalism is life. This broad-mindedness is knowledge. Miserliness is death. This selfishness is ignorance.
MAN OF SIN
When a man fails to discriminate between right and wrong, he perishes.
Lack of memory ruins the power of discrimination.
Anger ever keeps a man in delusion and causes him to lose his memory.
Anger breeds only when a man is unable to achieve the desired object to which he is attached.
He who always thinks of sense-objects develops attachment for them.
Instead of meditating on the ETERNAL SELF within him, if a man starts to think too much about delusive
sense-objects, definitely he will prove himself to be a man of sin.
NOTE: The above and some of the next following short pieces are somewhat reminiscent of the Bhagavad Gita - Ed
MAYA the DIVINE
The Lord of Maya, who is in the heart of all beings, causes the universe to revolve.
To go beyond Maya, this divine illusion, and to attain the everlasting abode, HIS grace is essential.
Hence, aspirants, with all their heart must fix their mind in HIM to overcome all the difficulties which are inherent in
HER (Maya).He who takes refuge in HIM alone, crossing this delusive ignorance, realises the Lord of Maya without
ORIGIN IS TRUTH
To reveal the initial cause of ignorance, aspirants must fill their mind completely with the Lord of all through single-
Only then will they vividly visualise everything that evolves from inexpressible Truth - the origin of all.
They who take refuge in Self-splendour, being one with the Truth, attain peace eternal and at the end become one
with the Supreme Self - for they are no other than Truth Eternal.
First evacuate worldly objects completely from the field of mind, meditating on the Lord at all times.
This one-pointed devotion will help you to renounce all enjoyments - this delusive world of ignorance.
They who practise, giving up all attachment and desire and sit firmly in the one single Truth - I do promise that such
devotees of Mine will come to Me without doubt - says the Lord of all.
To control the vagaries of the restless mind, aspirants must dive deep in meditation without fail.
Do this practice patiently and with full faith.
This firm hold on continuous practice alone will achieve victory over your restless mind at the end.
Yogis should know this truth that yoga puts an end to all the sorrows of this illusive world of ignorance. To come out
safely from the pain and pleasure of this nasty nattle-dream, one must know what mind is, because control of mind is
the highest yoga.
When the mind is well-controlled with this yoga, the only way of atonement - only then the practitioner's prayer and
meditation is known to be fruitful.
Yoga means to be ever united with the Lord of all. They who sit in yoga are ever fear-free and serene because they are
united with the Supreme Reality at all times and in all conditions.
Yoga is known to be the highest devotional practice of all practices because it changes the mortal yogi to immortal.
This is how yoga puts an end to all the sorrows of mankind.
If you really want to enjoy the sun and its rays, you must not keep your windows closed.
Open them without delay - only then will you really feel the pleasure of having the use of
the light, the heat and the sun itself.
covers you - this ignorance and attachment - only then will you attain and enjoy the
Truth, the Eternal light. The all-pervading supreme light is within you. Reveal this light
which is the life of all.
First get the help of this Eternal Light and enjoy. Then help the suffering world of
ignorance that is facing all sorts of trouble without it.
Ego, the product of ignorance, alone is the cause of your pain and pleasure - which is
Aspirants must take refuge in Eternal Knowledge and follow its practice very strictly. The
Supreme Self is within you all, therefore dive deep within. This is the only way to realise
Truth and the real solution to your worldly troubles. Hence, be introspective, entirely
depending on one single truth- like the dying patient putting all his trust in his doctor.
Restrain your restless mind that wanders away, bringing it back to your target of
meditation again and again. This constant practice will certainly prove to be of great help
to control the wandering mind and to realise the SUN UNBORN.
PRACTICE IS PERFECTION
Your day-to-day practice will bear fruit in time only when you see that passions are quieted, you
are completely tranquil and full of enormous supreme bliss.
This state alone helps the yogi to identify with the unborn eternal truth, the goal of life. This is
how practice turns into perfection.
Practitioners should do all their allotted day-to-day worldly duties as usual in the name of the
Lord, without having any attachment or desire for objects. For the world is bound by action.
Know it clearly that action originates from the Vedas, and the Vedas from the Truth Eternal.
When aspirants will realise this Eternity, they will ever delight in the self, for they are ever satisfied
in the Self. Such men of self-realisation alone have no duties to perform in this world of
ignorance, for they are ever united with the IMPERISHABLE.
Moreover, you should know that the constant practice of unification, this unity with the Eternal
self, alone is the real duty of all creatures.
Such a one who is ever united, who is one with the Truth, knows well that he is not doing
anything in this delusive world of ignorance, because in his eyes nothing exists except one single
Truth - which is none other than himself.
Who else can do it?
Who has created the universe?
Who has given life to you?
Who is beating your heart?
Who is breathing in you?
Who is speaking through you?
Who is the looker that directs the eyes?
Who is hearing inside you?
Who makes you move in the world?
Who is eating different kinds of food
- through innumerable mouths?
Who is swallowing one universe after another
- in the form of a black hole?
Who is it that gives life and death, one at a time?
Who is the inventor of this mysterious creation?
Who is the juggler that introduces
the homogeneous and heterogeneous
populations of this finite world in no time?
Who else can it be except GOD,
the almighty, one, single Truth eternal?
Therefore aspirants should realise this truth
that the entire creation is hanging in the air
by the will of God.
This is how God's will alone is functioning,
being ever active at all times
and in all conditions.
The source of all purity is you, the Real. The source of the holy Gandaki River is the
Himalaya, but just by taking a bath or washing in it, pureness will not come automatically.
Similarly, by performing any particular form of ritual only, you will not be pure. In other
words, worship, japa, and all other religious practices without devotion are of no use.
You, the Real, who are beyond your ego, are pure and perfect by nature, but your ignorance,
the source of ego, which is impure, has covered this purity. Lacking the real knowledge of
Truth, ignorance attempts to rule over you, the Pure Mind. The effrontery of this attempt
and this effort alone covers up purity, in the form of ego. Like a spider, this ego, the product
of ignorance, spins its web for the capture of worldly objects. This is how ego imposes itself
to be real, leaving far behind the Truth Eternal.
Now ego, the ruler, desires to have control all over the world. The more this ambitious ego
desires objects, the more attachment it develops, but whenever it fails to acquire its desired
objects, it becomes angry. Angry ego, being mad for the desired objects, loses its temper and
its greediness compels that anger to become wild and brutal. Thus, brutality breeds fear, and
finally this fear reproduces death.
In this way, impurity, your ignorance, covers the pure you, the Real Mind, fully - like an
eclipse that totally covers the sun or moon.
Now the point is - how to set yourself free from this illusive ego and ignorance? To get rid of
this ego addiction, reverse your movement from object to subject, from ignorance to real
knowledge, from impure to pure. Ego must agree with the Truth. Ego must surrender
completely to succeed in life.
Realization reveals the Truth only when you are pure - only when you are no longer ego. No
ego means no ignorance in total. Only then will you see the dawn of eternity. The Truth
Unborn alone is pure and this pureness is you, the Real. Therefore reveal this purity which is
ever free from death, fear, anger, greed, lust, attachment, desire, ego and ignorance - the
cause of all troubles.
Remember, you are not the body - this ego, and ignorance. you are religion. You are the source
of all religions. The world must know it well - you are the Truth and Truth is your religion.
You are ever sin-free. You are not unreal. Impurities cannot be your ornaments. Purity alone is
your real ornament.
You are ever-pure so you are tranquil and naked. You never tell a lie, that is why your
statements are ever-true.
The whole universe is yourself. There is none to cheat. To deceive others is not your religion.
You are beyond desire, attachment, lust, greed and anger. That is to say, you are out of reach
of this illusive world of ignorance.
The dogma of this illusion is not your religion. The fountain of love you are, so love alone is
your religion - which is tranquil and vast like the fathomless sky.
Now, one should understand that your religion is all-pervading, omniscient, omnipotent and
This is why you are regarded as Truth Eternal - God, the only symbol of unborn true religion.
This is the gist of your religion.
KINGDOM OF HEAVEN
God is your father, mother, teacher and protector.
God has created the universe.
He has created you.
He is your life.
He is your food.
He is your drink.
He is the air which you breathe in and breathe out.
He is your light.
He is your sight.
He is your sun and moon.
He is your vast and spacious sky
where countless planets and stars are twinkling.
The earth on which you stand is He.
Whomsoever you see in this world and the next is He.
The poor are God. The sick are God.
So serve them all.
If you love God, love everybody.
Your friend and foe, both are God.
Love all, for all are God.
Love is God. God is love.
Therefore you love.
He who loves, to him
the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
Fear is ignorance, so it is weak, it is cowardly and blind. Fear is death. Blindness is dark. Blind eyes need light in this darkness.
Look! In the light there is no darkness to cause you fear so get help of the light. Light is within your body, mind and intellect, therefore search for this eternal light which is within you. Find it out by all means - only then will you remain free of fear. You will be free from death, because in light eternal there is no trace of death - your ignorance.
Fear makes a man weak and leads to death. You, the real light, are fear-free and deathless. Know this truth that you are immortal. Hence, rise above this ignorance to be immortal, because immortality you are.
To reveal this truth, search within your self without fear. Only then will you see you are there - all alone.
