The Sadguru

He is a proper guru to whom your mind is attuned.He should be endowed with tranquility, patience, forgiveness, and other virtues. He should be capable of attracting others, even with his eyes just as a magnet attracts iron; he should have a feeling of equality towards all. He who has these virtues is a true guru.—-Maharishi Ramana.

Comments; I think there is no need to describe it, who have these qualities he is a perfect Guru or Yogi.

Virtue

When a mind struggles to be virtuous, moral, ethical, it resists, and in that very conflict there is disorder .So virtue is the very essence of order—though we may no like to use that word in the modern world . That virtue is not through the conflict of thought, but only when you see disorder critically , with wakened intelligence, understanding yourself. Then there is complete order of the highest form,which is virtue , and that can come only when there is love.—-J.Krishnamurti.

Problems and solutions .

You say you go to sleep while meditating .Once you go to sleep, you can do nothing about it. But while you are awake trying to keep away all thoughts. When you pass into sleep the state in which you were before falling sleep will continue when you wake up. You will continue where from you left off when you fell into slumber.—Maharishi Ramana.

Comments; Sometime sleep comes while meditating. We should avoid thoughts in practice. But sometime sleep comes into practice. But it will be only for some minutes and we should start after that. Now mind is at rest and you can start from that point. This is helpful in practice. But as mostly Saints told and I also find it very helpful if we do half or an hour practice before going to sleep at night. Then in the morning it will be very helpful for meditation.

Need for Practice.

Grace is always there . But the practice is also necessary. Staying in his self by one’s effort is like training a roguish bull to remain confined to his stall by tempting him with luscious grass and preventing him from straying.—Maharishi Ramana.

Comments; Maharishi Ramana used to speak very few words from Samadhi. Mostly he remained in silence for a long time. when he spoke any word, it comes from his own experience.

He said that Grace is always there, meaning it is our being or original nature. But by practice it may be self-inquiry or Nam- Japa or Vippassana we try to slow down our mind. He gave an example of a roguish bull . as we gave good grass and food in its stall then bull will not go outside and remains in his stall. Likewise, our mind every time goes outside attracted by worldly objects like greed, selfishness anger . But when our mind enjoy the bliss in our heart it will stay here and not will go outside.

Need for practice.

Divine grace is essential for realization. But grace is vouchsafed only he who is a true devotee or yogi, it is given only to those who have striven hard and ceaselessly on the path to freedom. —-Maharishi Ramana.

Comments; As all Saints has been told it that without grace you can never reach to liberation. Guru Nanak said ,’ Ek Onkar satgur Parsad. meaning is that which is one mighty God that only can be achieved by Guru’s grace. when God pleased on you then you will make your life according his guidance. my Guru Saint Nikka Singh ji used to say that with the grace of God you will be able to find real Guru and with the help of Guru you will find God.in this teaching Maharishi Ramana said that without grace you can never find God or eternal bliss which is the same. but who is striven hard and ceaselessly on the path to freedom.

I Thought

Wherefrom the ‘I’ thought arise? if one inquires thus, it vanishes. this is self-inquiry.—- Maharishi Ramana.

Comments; Every Saint has described it and it is a fact according my practice of meditation. this body is a combination of two things matter and spirit. According to my practice of meditation, I found it true . when we practice more and more of observing our mind, then no doubt we can find this ‘I’ . this is called Aham Virti. when we inquire this source of ego then new experience of bliss we find there which is infinity.

The Sadguru.

He is a proper Sadguru to when your mind is attuned . He should be endowed with tranquility, patience, forgivness, and other virtues, he should be capable of attracting others even with his eyes just as a magnet attracts iron. He should have a feeling of equality towards all. He who has these virtues is a true Guru.—-Maharishi Ramana.

According to real Saints these qualities should be in Sadguru. In Upnishadas and Guruvani it has been clarified in so many books. and Maharihi Ramana was a living Guru he told his own qualities. we as desiples or seeker of truth should know this. In these days there are so many false Gurus in all over the world especially in India. My Guru, Saint Nikka Singh ji was like this real Guru. but as Sri Shankarcharya defined it in his Bashaya on Gita. He wrote that Gurus gave these ideas to followers in their mind while practicing. When he will find this stage, then he will satisfy. otherwise he understand about any Saint that he perfect or not.

Need for Practice.

Your effort is meant not to allow yourself to be distracted by other thoughts. —-Maharishi Ramana.

Comments; Main obstecle in mediation is our mind. our mind can never be take rest , every time it is running after worldly affairs. if you look inside on mind you will find that is is working every time. and it takes pain from outgoing tendencies. we have too much knowledge but this is only memories. real knowledge of the self is hidden under the thoughts of the mind. so for real medition our aim should be on emptying the mind so that we can touch the bliss. our Indian Saints said that Samadhi and deep sleep are like sisters. in deep sleep mind goes inside and touch the self but due to sleep there is ignornce but in Samadhi mind goes inside by our effort in awakning and touch to self. so our effort is meant not o allow ourself to be distracted by other thoughts.I am doing methods of medition like observing the mind and Nam-Japa , it is right but we can not explain by words bacuse it is divine experince.

Grace

Grace is the beginning , middle and the end.—-Maharishi Ramana.

Comments; According to Maharishi Ramana grace is every time and everywhere but our experince is different . we never touch it due to too much thinking. mind is like clouds on the self. when by practice of observation or nam-japa , we remove thoughts then we can find experince of bliss which is already there. that is why vadanta said that you are not body and mind. we have to work on it. thats all.

Non-objective medition.

No Meditation on any kind of object is helpfull. in meditation on an object whether concrete or abstract you are destroying the sense of oneness and creating duality. medition on what you are in reality.—- Maharishi Ramana.

Comments; There are so many methods for prastice of mediation. some people said to focus on any object like flower or any deity figure. but Maharishi said you are destroying the sense of oneness and creating duality. beacuse then you are creating new problem of any figure.Maharishi wants to tell his method by which he got enlightnment.only objervation of your mind you are not creating a new problem.

I know a Saint who was disiple of my Guru St Nikka Singh ji.he used to concentrate on Figure of Rama. one day he told St. Nikka Singh ji that he has concreted so many years on Figure of Rama while reciting Nam Japa. and now he can feel everywhere picture of Rama. then St Nikka Singh ji advised him to leave this practice and start objervation of mind which is non -objective meditation. Then he started this practice but find very hard to leave the figure of Rama. he sometimes used to tell us that you should start from biggining non-objective meditation. to leave figure becomes a great problem. this will lead towards liberation.
