The disciple and his attitudes – Humility disarms antagonism

For real spiritual service the disciple has to be prepared for all eventualities. In his work for God he must learn to adjust himself to all types of circumstances—favorable or otherwise. Others may pay no heed to him or may treat him with contempt or slander, but that should not mar his understanding or […]

The disciple and his attitudes – The Immortality of Universal Life

The silence which I have been observing for the past thirty-one years is a call from the silence of unfathomable Divinity. Invite that Divinity into your hearts so that you may become permanently established in the immortality of universal life, which is vastly different from the persistence of limited individual life. The ego life […]

The disciple and his attitudes – Theory and practice

The energy which is expended in mere thinking, talking or writing is like the steam which escapes through the whistle of the railway engine. The whistle makes a noise, and is even interesting, but it cannot drive the engine. No amount of whistling can move the engine forward. The steam has to be harnessed […]

The Master and His Role – The Flash from the Eternal

The act of a Perfect Master is not repetitive. It is not merely the redoing of something previously experienced in the context of a new setting. It is the doing of something that can not be done within the restrictions of the experiences of duality. It is a creation of the utterly new, a […]

The Master and His Role – The Grinding Mill of the Universe

The Perfect Master becomes the center of the universe. He finds himself as the only absolute and changeless point, around which the entire universe is constantly turning. The universe is like the grinding mill, and the Truth-realized Master is like its central pin. None can escape the repetitive and eternal crushing that goes on […]

The Master and His Role – The Master is the Way

IN THINKING day and night of the Master, the disciple nearly achieves the ultimate objective which is the aim of the diverse practices of meditation and concentration. By putting the work of the Master above his own personal needs, he achieves the aim through complete renunciation. In sincere surrender to the Master, the disciple […]

The Master and His Role – The Direct Journey to God

The masses who try to attain the Truth by following rites and rituals are, as it were, in the goods train which is detained indefinitely at various stations. Those who sincerely and devotedly meditate on God or dedicate their lives to the service of humanity are, as it were, in the ordinary train which […]

The Master and His Role – The Limiting Nightmare

The process of getting bound and then unbound is charged with immense significance. The soul gets mixed up with the body and then gets caught up with it.

The soul is like a parrot and the body is like a cage. When the parrot is outside of the cage it is free, but it […]

The Master and His Role – Deathless Living

Life does not end with death. Survival after death is as true as death after life. To live in order to die, or to die in order to survive, would be a poor proposition indeed. The death that follows life is not a lifelessness, nor is life after death a deathlessness. Life is a […]

“Be prepared to receive this overflow of grace”

True worship is an expression of devotion, not just saying prayers and making supplications. For you to worship me truly, it is necessary for you to have my grace. What is grace? No bargaining whatsoever is possible in the receiving of grace, and there is absolutely no specific condition for its bestowal. It may […]
