The Wanderings of the Mind in Maya

The more you think of Maya, the more is your anxiety, or your eagerness for its (Maya’s) enjoyment (upabhog), and the greater your anxiety, the greater your fears.

Pearls before Swine

A swine, a hog, always lives on refuse and excrement.

Baba stopped at 2:45 P.M. in the town of Alamuru, where darshan was held in the newly-built Shanti movie theater. Almost 1,000 people were present and received his prasad. They heard this message from Baba titled “The Atma’s Love of Play”:

Each and every seemingly individual soul (atma) is destined to realize its One […]

The Avatar’s Advent

Age after age the Avatar comes amidst mankind to maintain his own creation of illusion, thereby also awakening humanity to awareness of it.

The framework of illusion is always one and the same, but the designs in illusion are innumerable and ever-changing. My advent is not to destroy illusion because illusion, as it is, […]
