Awakening and God Realization

"God Realization and Awakening are very different. When you are awakened it can be described in a crude way as you were on drugs or drunk, you are in an altered state of consciousness but there are no hangover, no side effect. You have a different perspective on life.

"In God Realization you and the Divine are One. Everything happens to you, you see only God in that. You see It in Everyone and all situations. No matter what happens to you, you are seeing God in that. You can ask for anything in this state, it is given.

"So I suggest you go for God Realization, then it is very easy for your God to give Awakening to you. Awakening is much harder to get, go for God Realization. In Oneness we give both, we are aiming to give you both." ~ Sri Bhagavan

witness consciousness

"When you come out of prison you will see your mind is there intact. All your knowledge is intact, but you’re out of it. It’ll be working automatically and it will beautifully run your life. The problem is when you get involved. When you merely become a witness consciousness the mind is automatically functioning."- Sri Bhagavan

paradoxes r superficial

The fusion of high gyaana with intense bhakti is an oft observed spiritual phenomena. Ramana's passionate bhajans are legendary. A thriving bhakti movement across the world exists with Nisargadatta. Paradoxes rest at comfortable peace with each other at higher levels of consciousness.Conflict dissolves and what is remains.


Asato ma Satgamaya
Tamasoma Jyotirgamaya
Mrityorma Amritamgamaya...

from untruth, lead me to truth,
Form darkness to light
and from death to immortality.......

- ancient Indian prayer


when we encounter discomfort on our spiritual journeys, each discomfort is a wake-up call, an attention caller to an evolutionary opportunity...if we skirt the discomfort , we also move away from the opportunity of receiving a great gift it represents.
