“As the fragrance is hidden in the rose, in the same way my presence is hidden in every heart”

That afternoon, Bhagirath and his wife Kokila visited Baba when he was with the mandali in the Ice Factory Bungalow. As mentioned they were living in the same building, and Baba remarked to Kokila, “I am everywhere!”

“But how can we know it?” she asked.

Handing her a fresh rose, Baba stated, “Can you […]

Man wavers driven by thoughts and desires

The difference between God and man is more than between heaven and earth. Man is bound by cravings and desires. You eat and drink, and whatever you do binds you. I eat and drink, but I am quite free. Animals also eat and drink, but so do men. Is there no difference between you […]

Human form and its attributes – Part-5 (Final)

“But why is there always suffering and not happiness?” one of the mandali asked.

You simpleton, I am trying to tell you that there is nothing like suffering! It is the mind that creates pain and misery. In reality, neither happiness nor misery exists. Only bliss is real, which the soul enjoys after […]

As long as desires persist, there is no freedom. One who is completely desireless becomes the King of Kings! But people have no idea how to become desireless. Freedom from desires is real life. One has to go beyond desires to enjoy freedom. This freedom can never be imagined; it is beyond the […]

The next day in the mandali’s cottage, Baba asked Ramjoo if he was a human being or an animal. Taken aback, Ramjoo answered, “A human being!” Baba then gave this discourse about the human form and its attributes:

Q. Oh, I am so happy to see you . . . . I am so tired of life, and very unhappy . . . . I don’t see how I can improve !

“Bless Everything”

 

After further explanation [of spiritual planes], Baba’s dictation ended and he asked one of the group, “Is it clear?”

The person answered, “No. I get all confused when you discourse like this.”

Baba smiled, spelling out, “Love Baba! That is all you need to do. The fun of it all is you are […]

“Love is self-communicative”

Love springs spontaneously from within, but although love can never be forced from or upon another, it can be awakened through love itself. Essentially, love is self-communicative: Those who do not have it catch it from those who have it, for one cannot absorb love without making a response. Regardless of the barnacles which […]
