Dear Jothish,

Wonderful post. The Q&A interested me very much.

Student: Does he think that his way of life helps the rest of mankind or only him?

TWB: All these saints meditating and established in the Self, they are the basis for all this running of the entire universe, and they are the basis of the whole thing, and not for themselves alone. Their good vibrations are influencing societies for their advancement.

Just yesterday, the AoY thread, there is a very similar comment that Gurudeva has written as a footnote that was posted. :pronam: Another reference that I specially liked was that to Sukhadeva - the legendary Yogi giant of Vedic fame. :praying: :love:

Jai Tat Wale Baba. Jai Guru.

:praying: :love:

Very good link and interesting website. I agree with LBee, the Q&A is particularly very good.

Some excerpts:

Having gained this beautiful, perfect human nervous system, if we have known that element of the Self, then we have really used this wonderful diamond-like gift, this diamond-like nervous system which is capable of giving that eternal bliss. If it is not experienced, then we have wasted that gift of diamond. We have taken upon ourselves this human nervous system, not for the sake of petty enjoyment of changing nature in this relative field of change, but to live and be that infinite bliss. And, we will have to attain that thing whether we attain it in this life, or in the next, or in the next. We just can't forego that. Therefore, with the assistance of the guru and the scriptures, better to attain it quickly. Why postpone?


Student: Are there any shortcuts to purification of karma?

TWB: The shortest cut to the purification of karma is surrender to God, devotion to God, realization of the Self. And, when you realize the Self all your mind and senses will be purified. And, when your senses are purified all your actions will be good. They will be life supporting. They behave with you as your friends. And, if the mind is not established in the Self, in the glory of God, then your own senses will become your enemy. And then, all your karma will pounce upon you as your enemy. It is the fixity of the mind in the Self that makes your senses your friend, and non-fixity of the mind in the Self makes your senses your enemy. Senses-enemy means karma, because the karma is performed by the senses. So the karma will be good if the mind is established in the Self and karma will not be good if the mind is not established in the Self.

Practice. Increase your practice to arrive at that goal.


For example, when a visitor once asked him how to control the mind he said that you can't stop desire because it is like trying to stop the Ganges. He said to let the mind flow. But, wherever the mind goes there also see your God, your personal God. That way your mind automatically comes back to the concentration on the goal, God.

.......
...."Tat Wale Baba advised people to put their attention on their guru or God - such as Jesus, Rama, Krishna - while they perform action. By doing so they will gain the ideal of God or guru in their actions."


He has explained certain concepts very beautifully and in simple words. Not very different from our own teachings.

India is a veritable spiritual giant, garbed in a misleading rag of dirt, chaos and disarray. Somewhere I feel this is to protect herself from many superficial seekers, who look only at externals and comfort. And that goes for many Indians as well. Only those true seekers, who look beyond the externals, are able to see India for what she really is -- a phenomenal spiritual powerhouse. So many saints; some known, some not so widely known (like TWB above) and some practically unknown. All working away for the benefit of mankind and the world at large. Amazing.

Thank you Jothish :pronam: :love: . In the Q&A session, the answers looked like matching with Sri Ramana Maharshi's.

Very true indeed. The deeper part is he always knew about it beforehand and showed no fear or worry about it.

I'm reminded of the great rishi who was killed by a king and his head alone spoke (related in the AOY).

The list of Yogis killed by violence is a long one. Starting from the Lord Krishna (killed by an arrow) / Lord Jesus Christ themselves.

Didn't follow a word though - some European language - it is a beautifully made video capturing the essence of life at the holy cities of Rishikesh and may be BenaresPosted Image

Thanks for sharing this document Balbir. Incredibly inspiring. It would be indeed a great blessing to have the good karma, blessings and good fortune of being able to spend a life absorbed solely in meditating on God and seeking Him!
His talks are very similar to Guruji's teachings. Only one point I didnt quite get. Tat Wale baba says that earth is the only planet for humans. I dont think Guruji said that.
In any case I do plan to look up this holy place in my next visit to Rishikesh in the Himalayas (whenever that is). The other place is the vashistha gufa where Jesus Christ is mentioned to have meditated.
Jai guru
