The Nonduality Highlights - 




To know no one teaching, to express nothing, to say nothing, to explain
nothing, to announce nothing, to indicate nothing, and to designate nothing -
that is the entrance into nonduality.


~Vimalakirti Sutra



"Do not try to become anything. Do not make yourself into anything. Do not
be a meditator. Do not become enlightened. When you sit, let it be. What you
walk, let it be. Grasp at nothing. Resist nothing."

~ Ajhan Chah 



Who would dare to go nameless in so secure a universe?
Yet, to tell the truth, only the nameless are at home in it.


They bear with them in the center of nowhere the unborn flower of nothing:
This is the paradise tree. It must remain unseen until words end and arguments are silent.


~Thomas Merton

The man to whom is unveiled
the mysteries of love
exists no longer,
but vanishes into Love.

Question: Some say that to make an effort for one's liberation is selfish, and
that instead of that, one should do good to others by selfless service.


Bhagavan: Those people believe that jnanis (realized beings) are selfish and
that they themselves are selfless, but this is not a true belief. The jnani lives in
the experience of Brahman (the impersonal Absolute Reality) and the effect of
this experience spreads all over the world. A radio transmission is done from
one point but its effect can be felt all over the world. Those who would like to
benefit from it can do so. Similarly, the Self-realization of the jnani spreads
everywhere and whosoever wants can tune into it. This is not a lesser service.

The jnani (self realized) takes his stand in the Self at all times, absolute,
fearless. He does not think of the universe as unreal nor does he see it as
different from himself...


~ Ramana Maharshi



It is no use walking anywhere to preach unless our walking is our preaching. 


~St. Francis of Assisi

When I heard the sound of the bell ringing,
there was no bell,
and there was no I-
there was only the ringing.


Once you stop clinging and let things be,
you’ll be free, even of birth and death.


You’ll transform everything…
And you’ll be at peace wherever you are.


Even as fire finds peace
in its resting place without fuel,
when thoughts become silence
the soul finds peace in its own source.


When the mind is silent,
then it can enter into a world
which is far beyond the mind:
the highest End.


The mind should be kept in the heart
as long as it has not reached the highest End.
This is wisdom, and this is liberation.


~ Upanishads
