A Centre Sans Circumference

The moon is within me and so is the sun The unstruck drum of Eternity is sounded within me But my deaf ears cannot hear it......Kabir Truth cannot be known in the ordinary sense-knowledge; not by the senses of sight, of hearing, of smell, of touch or of taste. Nor even by the mind or the intellect.... Sign in to see full entry.

Attaining to Enlightenment

(Inspired once again, by an intelligent query from RPresta). Socrates, declared by the Oracle of Delphi as the wisest of all in the whole wide world, when the news was brought him by some of his fan-followers, began to laugh, and told his disciples to go to Delphi and tell that the Oracle though...

Up till now we have talked about how the principle of karma yoga and the yoga of Intelligent Will frees one from the bondage of Life; the individual soul merging with the Supreme Soul.

The Yoga of the Intelligent Will

The subject of discussion until now was Karma Yoga, that is, Union with Supreme Consciousness through Works. Karma Yoga is particularly suited to a man of active temperament.

God:the physic par excellence (contd.from Arjuna's state of immobilization)

His senses utterly bewildered and saying that he will not fight, Arjuna falls silent. This is almost a catatonic unconscious-like state as in drunken stupor; it is the rebellion of unchastened emotions.

YEARNING

Oh how I wish to enjoy Enjoyments to their most utmost Devoid of which, how do I enter The promised lands that beckons me yonder?
