The third month is named Bhuma after the source of the Pranasya Pranaha, the mother of all existence.
|Thought of the day
|Swimming is the part of swimmer and to teach swimming is the part of master.
|While doing a thing, think that you are not doing it for yourself, but for your Master, or rather think that your Master himself is doing it for himself.
|Love is the inner awakening to Reality.
|Devotion makes our passage smooth and creates a channel for the Godly current to flow into our heart.
|Through thinking of the Divine, devotion and love develop.
|By devotion to the Highest, we make a channel from us to Him that serves as a path to Him.
|Love makes every task easy and paves the way for the shower of Master's grace to smoothen the way to the Ultimate Goal.
|The remembrance of everything should merge into the remembrance of One - the Ultimate.
|Under Natural Path the master, by the application of his inner powers, awakens to action and accelerates the dormant forces in the abhyasi and diverts the flow of Divine current towards his heart.
|Under our system of spiritual training, the teacher at the very outset weakens the downward tendency of the Abhyasi by the effect of his own power, so that it may get automatically diverted towards the Divine
|The real spiritual training is that which makes our mind disciplined and regulated, restores moderation in senses and faculties and creates lightness of spirit.
|Having attained the state of realisation one develops an unfailing will in the spiritual sphere.
|Under the system of 'Natural Path' it (inner cleaning) is accomplished by easy mental practices, aided by the power transmitted by the teacher.
|Under the system, though the spiritual training is imparted through transmission, still the most important and indispensable thing remains for the abhyasi to develop in himself. It is love and devotion to supplement the abhyas.
|'We are and we are not' as also 'we are not and we are'
|SDG - 156
|Transmission gives a new life to the sleeping condition of man, and prepares for the highest approach reserved for human beings.
|As long as the abhyasi is not getting the Grace direct, the teacher diverts the Grace which is coming directly upon himself to the abhyasi.
|As the transmission takes us to deeper and deeper levels of remembrance, our journey to the source becomes firmly established.
|In our system a teacher takes out the hurdles in the progress of the seeker and side by side imparts the divine effulgence in him.
|Subtle force is very strong, and if an abhyasi tries to go further by his own effort, he is pushed down because he cannot get at the subtle force.
|I may assure you that spiritual training for the attainment of higher stages is only possible by the process of Yogic transmission and by no other means.
|In our sanstha, Reality is infused at the first stroke of will which serves as the seed in the long run.
|The condition of Ajapa rightly believed to be a high spiritual achievement acquired after years of hard labour, is only a matter of weeks or rather days, through right training by the process of transmission.
|If we go on pursuing our practice of Sadhana without having the final aim in view, our position will be that of a traveller who travels on without any idea of a destination.
|When all of my associates gather at one spot, it becomes a temple for me and it is their duty to make their hearts as the temple themselves.
|When restlessness increases and reaches the limit, crosses the limit of strength, then the beginning of real peace starts.
|Physical or mental troubles do not tell upon spirituality.
|Fix up your goal which should be complete oneness with God. Rest not till the ideal is achieved.
|If you meditate having your real goal before you, you are sure to arrive at the destination.
|What is the Destination, where we have to reach? It may, preferably, be called insignificance. If you chose to designate it as such, it is an insignificance, of which we know nothing!
