All that you are attached to, all that you love, all that you know, someday will be gone. Knowing this, and that the world is your mind which you create, play in, and suffer from is known as discrimination. Discriminate between the real and the unreal. The known is unreal and will come and go so stay with the Unknown, the Unchanging Truth. All which appears and disappears is not real and no nectar will come from it so don’t cling to it and once you let go do not turn back to it. Stay as Eternity in your own Being.

Awareness is beyond mind, much beyond it. Mind gives you doubts, fears, and worry and keeps you unaware of That beyond the mind. The role of mind in the play is to keep the person in the dark, in the past. Where there is no mind there is no time or past. This is the Ultimate Truth.

Happiness is permanent. It is always there. What comes and goes is unhappiness. If you identify with what comes and goes, you will be unhappy. If you identify with what is permanent and always there, you are happiness itself.

Here, all fears end.

I don't give any exercise or practice because all practice is in time and is in mind. What I recommend is to simply stay quiet, don't make effort, don't think. This is all you have to do now. Do this now.

If there is peace in your mind you will find peace with everybody. If your mind is agitated you will find agitation everywhere. So first find peace within and you will see this inner peace reflected everywhere else. You are this peace. You are happiness, find out. Where else will you find peace if not within you?

Just be quiet. This quiet does not involve talking or not talking. It does not involve any doing whatsoever. Just let the mind fall into silence. This is enough.

Keep quiet and you will know who really you are. There is nothing outside that can help you, you have just to keep quiet - that's all - and you will know then you are eternal. You are eternal existence itself.

Know who you are, Here and Now, by simply Being Quiet. You are this moment, introduce yourself to This, do not attach your mind to any direction. No sadhana, no past, no future, not even emptiness of your heart, not even space. To be free forever introduce yourself to this Moment. This Moment is always this Moment, It will not change. It is Freedom, free from mind and concepts, and is your fundamental birthright.

The best use of this Moment is to drown in It. Keep Quiet, you are inside of the inside, do not dwell anywhere and make no effort. The concept of effort and practice is bondage. Just keep Quiet, Wherever you are, Just keep Quiet.

Let your will burn in this fire so that it takes you nowhere else. Let your self be burned in this fire of eternity, love and peace. Don't be afraid of this fire, it is love itself. This desire for freedom is the fire of love!

Love itself speaks through every pore of your body, you need not open your mouth, there is no word for Love. What you can speak about and what you can experience is not Love. All thought and speech is philosophy, not Love. For everything else, you need to work. There are sadhanas and paths and ways, but there is no path to Love.

There is no center which will teach you Love. Bones will melt in true Love, let alone mind and ego. Nothing is in True Love. So long for only your own Self and you will be That. Taking time is just postponement and interest in something else. Love is the spontaneous Indweller of your Heart.

Some people say that in Emptiness there is no Love and no Beauty. These traditions and teachers say that Emptiness is empty of everything. This is not my experience. Love is the fathomlessness of Emptiness. The very Heart of Emptiness, Arriving at the depths of Emptiness, there is Love and Beauty! It is very Beautiful.

In love, You Are Love Who will speak to whom? Just Look at it, and İt will happen. Everything is artificial, Everything but Love. When you Love, you know how to Love, otherwise you don’t. It comes by itself from within, you are not to do anything about it. Then when Love is Here, all the rest is finished. There are no attachments to anything, There Is Only Love Loving Itself.

So, who can keep quiet now, just for one instant? No one has ever kept quiet, whosoever he may be. So do it now and see that in this instant there is no thought, no time, no past. This moment is free from all past moments. When the past is gone, there is neither a future nor a present. You are out of time and you have always been out of time. This is your true nature and that is why you want to return to that transcendental, timeless consciousness which is called Beyond or Emptiness. That is your nature, you see. That is why you have been spending millions of years hunting It. You have not found It so far because you have been begging for other things which you feel you need. When you make any effort to get something, you are just wasting your time. You are now here to get rid of this false notion of effort. In this instant, don’t think, don’t stir the mind, don’t make any effort. This instant is your own fundamental peace, happiness, love, beauty, joy

The condition [for enlightenment] is total absence of desires, not their repression.

The Heart remembers when you become one with the Self by claiming your freedom, you will have no more desires because everything will be your own Self. There will be nothing apart from you that you can desire or want.

The most holy association is to Be as you are. This is Freedom. This is beyond imagination, very new and very fresh. So just keep Quiet. Do not think. It is you. It is you. Don't stir a thought, and if a thought comes, let it, don't waver, don't doubt your majesty. It is so simple. The one who has It will know that they have done it. When you are quiet it is Beauty, Joy and Stillness. It is effortless. Effort is to disturb your mind, effort is playing with corpses in the graveyard. Just contemplate that which is always silence. Go to the Source. Do not believe anything, simply stay quiet and return home and do not rest until you are there. Peace is only available when there is no “I” and you need an “I” to do practice. The secret to Bliss is to stop the search, stop thinking, stop not-thinking, and keep Quiet. The best practice is to Know “Who am I.” You are Brahman, know this. If you want to do anything, just Always adore Self.

The purpose of life is to be at peace, To love all beings, and know who you are. Know your Self and you know everything. This immaculate knowledge alone is, Emptiness alone is. How can you come out of emptiness if there are no limits to it? The appearance of a manifestation is but lila of this Emptiness. Know who you are, here and now, by simply being quiet. You are this moment, introduce yourself to This, do not attach your mind to any direction. No sadhana, no past, no future, not even emptiness of your heart, not even space. To be free forever introduce yourself to this Moment. This Moment is always this Moment, It will not change. It is freedom, free from mind and concepts, and is your fundamental birthright. The best use of this Moment is to drown in It. Keep quiet, you are inside of the inside, do not dwell anywhere and make no effort. The concept of effort and practice is bondage. Just keep quiet, wherever you are, just keep quiet.

The scriptures speak of three Holy rivers within. These are Existence, Consciousness, and Bliss. Being beyond thought or effort they cannot be objectified or subjectified. They are so dear, so near, behind the retina and before the breath. You need not see This, you are It.

The whole world is your own Self. So who is good and who is bad?

This is ultimate understanding. Knowing this, you know everything. If you don’t know this, you know nothing, regardless of how much information you collect. Without this knowledge, you are ignorant. Having known the absolute, you are everything, without beginning, middle, end, without birth or death.

Trying has put you in trouble, so don’t touch this trying any more.

When Papaji met Ramana Maharshi, and asked him, "Have you seen God?" Maharshi replied, "Anything that you see cannot be God. Whatever you see must be an object of your senses. God is not an object of your senses. God is the one through whom all things are seen, tasted, touched, heard and smelt, but He himself cannot be seen because He is the seer, not an object of sight."

When you are traveling on the train will you keep the baggage on your head or under your feet? This is the difference between the Wise and the rest of the universe. The Wise do not carry their baggage, but almost everyone does. Thinking of friends and finances and things not even come or already gone is carrying your baggage. This is the difference between living in peace or suffering. It depends on where your baggage is. If you feel that the baggage you are carrying is of no use, drop it down. Then walk away Enlightened into the realms where very few have gone. Don’t carry anything.

When you return to your Self, this is called awakening, liberation, freedom. Having known your Self, you know everything. In this awakening the whole universe is discovered to be within yourself. All universes are within you and you are the universe.

You are the unchangeable Awareness in which all activity takes place. Always rest in peace. You are eternal Being, unbounded and undivided. Just keep Quiet. All is well. Keep Quiet Here and Now. You are Happiness, you are Peace, you are Freedom. Do not entertain any notions that you are in trouble. Be kind to yourself. Open to your Heart and simply Be. Those who know This know Everything. If not, even the most learned know nothing at all.

You simply can't deny being conscious. You dwell in the lotus of the heart as happiness. Be still and you will reveal your self to yourself. Self-knowledge is '' that ", Valuable enough to sacrifice everything for it, because everything else is just a conscious deception anyway. The self is the inner dwelling of all beings, so love from others is the love of self, your self. The self is the greatest love and love of all lovers. Love is the attraction of self to self in self. There is nothing but this love, this source of bliss. See your own beauty and you are that indwelling, that love, and the beauty itself.

Your desire for freedom may win you freedom, but once that freedom has been won, ‘you’ are out of the picture. When there is no person left, there is also no one who can have a desire. So, when this desire arises within this state of freedom, this desire that wants to take you even further, it is not a personal desire. You are not involved in it. It arises from within, from within itself. It is a revelation within itself, for itself, to itself. You can call it a ‘revelation’, but I can’t really think of a good word for this. In that revelation everything will be revealed. You will discover the hidden secrets. This desire will win you the secret and show you what it is.

Leave this ‘precious moment’ alone. Don’t let anything arise in it. It is so immaculate, it should not be tainted by any kind of imposition. It should not be ‘this way’ or ‘that way’. It’s so immaculate, so pure, so chaste, nothing can trespass on it. Leave it alone. It is your own Self. It is not a stranger. This is your own being, your own Self. If you want some advice, I will give it to you: dive into it. You have to dive into it, and merge in it once and for all. Right now the advisor and the advised are speaking on the bank of the river. Let go of both of them, and jump into the river. A stern, sincere and honest desire is enough to do this.
