A Recent Quote from Swamiji


    Choose and then Pick

  "Find out where you are and where you should be.  In the relative world there will be always be a distance between where you are and where you should be, as the goals here are an eternally receding line. In the realm of the Absolute, you are always where you should be - - - the Happiness, the Freedom.....                                                                                  

There is no distance between you and yourself.  Since one is not aware of it because of ignorance, one needs the knowledge to remove the ignorance. And in that knowledge there is no pride, no arrogance, no superiority, no inferiority and no exclusiveness excepting the exclusiveness of all-inclusiveness. Here sharing is a joy and demands no obligations, as I 'was' where you are, and will be where I 'am'. The only price demanded for one's own sake, is sincerity, honesty, preparedness and willingness 'to be' what one 'is', and give due place to things or ideas one has or picks up on the travel through life....

 'Be' your true self and the true teaching helps without being a handicap or a notion to depend upon. Freedom shines forever even through apparent bondage!   Knowledge shines forever even through apparent ignorance! You cannot pick and choose. You better choose and then pick."
