By His constant remembrance the umbrella of sanskaras will give way to sun shine

On April 22nd, Baba went for a walk to the beach after lunch. Pointing to the ocean, Baba remarked to the group present:

I am like the ocean you see before you – always ready to receive anything, good and bad. All your thoughts, feelings, all and everything, lay them at my feet and […]

The Hidden Treasure of the Self

 

On November 16th, Baba visited the Buddhist Society in Nagpur that morning. Adi Sr. read out the message, “The Hidden Treasure of the Self.” The following is an excerpt:

There is no creature that is not destined for the supreme goal, even as there is no river that is not on its […]

20130601 – Without the sanskaras being totally eliminated there is no spiritual liberation

On December 9th, Baba discoursed on the Sadguru:

Without the sanskaras being totally eliminated there is no spiritual liberation. To dispose of sanskaras one has to create reverse sanskaras, which are opposite in nature. Opposite impressions reverse the sanskaric makeup of the mind. To remove stains, soap or lime is necessary. But the mind […]

20130516 – Become pure by dedicating both good and bad to me

20130419 – Remove the mirror of sanskaras and see your own Real Self

“I was Rama, I was Krishna, and I was this One and I was that One. Now I am Meher Baba—the very same Ancient One in flesh and blood—the very same One who is eternally worshipped and neglected, always remembered and forgotten. [Today 19th April 2013 is Rama Navami – birthday of Lord Rama]

20130408 – Once surrendered, Perfect Master takes responsibility to eradicate sanskaras

Later the same day, while explaining about sanskaras, Meher Baba stated:

By keeping company with a God-Realized being, a person’s worldly sanskaras get burned up through the Master’s spiritual heat. That is why those near a Sadguru derive great spiritual benefit, and the merit of those who serve the Master is indeed immense.

But […]

20121228 – Only Sadguru can alter the course of experience to realize God – part 2 (final)

In fact, there is nothing such as happiness and misery, virtue and vice, or good and bad. Only bliss exists! The experiences of happiness, misery, virtue, vice, good and bad are nothing. But they are the necessary steppingstones on the course to higher things which, though illusory, everyone has to pass through.

Only the […]

20121224 – Cease the mental tension by training your mind to pass over thoughts

 

 

Cease the mental tension. Train your mind to pass over thoughts. Do not give countenance to them until such time that you can surrender the mind itself. No one is doing it. When the mind is surrendered, there is no question of happiness and unhappiness. Because of the thoughts of the past […]

20121223 – By touching the Perfect Master’s feet, we unburden our sanskaric load

Beloved Baba’s Samadhi, Meherabad

Baba said: “When people come to a Perfect Master and touch his feet with their heads, they lay the burden of their sanskaras on him. A Perfect Master’s feet collect the sanskaras from all over the universe, just as an ordinary person when walking collects dust on […]

20121217 – Sanskaras linger on after death

… The body drops, but the mind remains. And when the body drops, its impressions immediately manifest, trying to spread themselves and assume a new body. They want expression through the body, and so another body comes into existence which is made up of these impressions.

Thus, with the dropping of every form, […]
