If I stopped expressing how I feel, the world would be one step closer to being a giant Hallmark Card.

You cannot know the knower, for you are the knower.
The fact of knowing proves the knower.
You need no other proof.
The knower of the known is not knowable.
Just like the light is known in colours only, so is the knower known in knowledge.

Those attracted to this talk are pulled inside for a 
reason, from something very deep inside. We are on 
the same origin of spiritual brotherhood. And we will 
always be together. We will always find one another in 
love. And we will laugh to think that we thought we 
were human. But love will reveal our True Natures. 
The Self that was never born and will never die. Let us 
remember this today. Let us remember, and do 
something about it. And in doing so, you'll find supreme

Here and now you are already the Self.
You don't need time to realize it, all you need is correct understanding. 
Each moment you identify yourself with the body and the mind, you are going in the direction of ego and misery.
The moment you give up that identification, you are moving towards your real Self, towards happiness.

The real feet of Bhagavan exist only in the heart of 
the devotee. To hold onto these feet incessantly is true 
happiness. You will be disappointed if you hold onto my 
physical feet because one day this physical body will 
disappear. The greatest worship is worshiping the 
Guru’s feet that are within oneself.

One satsang member asked Ram Dass if he was enlightened- 
and here is what he said –
“Usually whenever I’m asked that question I immediately 
answer, “No,” so as to be humble. But I look around and 
everything is one. Is that enlightenment? I look around and 
I’m in love with everybody. Is that enlightenment? I witness 
my incarnation. Is that enlightenment? I’m in love with my 
guru. Is that enlightenment? I see my life as service to God. 
Is that enlightenment? I surrender to God in my daily life. Is 
that enlightenment? I experience peace within. Is that 
enlightenment? I experience compassion for other souls. Is 
that enlightenment? My environment is a projection of my own 
mind. Is that enlightenment?
What do I know about enlightenment? Every day I’m still 
learning, and I want to keep sharing and learning with people. 
But I’m still thinking about enlightenment, so I guess I’m not

...a new age of spirituality is dawning, a radically 
inclusive and accessible spirituality free from the 
dogma and ideology and blind belief of the past, a 
spirituality in which nothing and nobody – including the 
teachers themselves – can escape the loving light of 
ruthless inquiry and blinding transparency, in which 
nobody can claim any kind of absolute truth or 
privileged knowledge. Equality, deep friendship, 
honesty and integrity are the new gods.
