You are doomed to meet the Guru; you cannot escape Him

The Teacher offers unsolicited support when you do not feel any need for that support. Then you get used to that support.

Then the Teacher takes it away. You are in tears and you declare him insensitive and undependable.”How dare he break the pot he himself so lovingly made?”, you shout.

You walk away from in rage and despondency, and stumble.

And he supports, yet again. In another form, in another name.

You are doomed to meet the Guru. You cannot escape him. He will support you despite your ingratitude and break you despite your gratefulness.

He is You.

The subject does not ‘see’ as such. Seeing is always in details, in naamroop, and hence limited and fragmented.

Seeing is the function of the mind. The mind sees, gives names, relates events and forms meanings. Such seeing is nothing but perception.

The Subject merely ILLUMINATES.

In this illumination, the mind sees.

Eg, the Sun illuminates and your eye sees. The Sun has no distinction for details; the eye and mind form divisions and give meanings. Even though all these meanings are unreal, yet the very fact that your eye can see is a certain proof that a grand source of illumination is present.

Once again, the false is the only proof of the true.

One of the clearest indicators of the quality of your existence is the quality of your love. You can only love the small, the stunted, the sick.

If ever a healthy one crosses your way, what will you do? You will hide afraid of him, you will bow to him, you will hate him, you will kneel and be awestruck, you will sing his virtues and kill him. But do you think you can ever love him? NEVER. It is beyond you to love the really lovable.

Realization is always a by-product. By chance, by Grace, Serendipity.

Who can plan for it and achieve it? Can one even desire for it, when one does not know it? All our desires are for something else.

Realization comes as a by-product, undesired, unwanted. The self wholeheartedly wants rubbish, and imagine its embarrassment when it instead finds realization!

Hence the Ahobhaav.

The Scriptures are all piratical documents. Their reader must be able to live upto life and its challenges.

The scriptures and their wisdom are not meant to be used as tools of winning some petty academic debate. It is meant to make you a winner in the big game of day-to-day life.

The Intelligent one lives life fully. He is the only one who does.

May you be the conqueror of self and the ruler of sansaar!
