We believe in gods and goddesses, because we were told so...


Lead me from dreaming to waking.
Lead me from opacity to clarity. Lead me from the complicated to the simple. Lead me from the obscure to the obvious. Lead me from intention to attention. Lead me from what I'm told I am to what I see I am. Lead me from confrontation to wide openness. Lead me to the place I never left, Where there is peace, and peace -
The Upanishads
*note* I will try to explain what Maruti Kambli(or the Maharaj) explains..

Whatever pleases you, Keeps you Back

Questioner: I am a retired chartered accountant and my wife is engaged in social work for poor women. Our son is leaving for the United States and we came to see him off. We are Panjabis but we live in Delhi. We have a Guru of the Radha-Soami faith and we value satsang highly. We feel very fortunate to be brought here. We have met many holy people and we are glad to meet one more.
Maharaj: You have met many anchorites and ascetics, but a fully realized man conscious of his divinity (swarupa) is hard to find. The saints and Yogis, by immense efforts and sacrifices, acquire many miraculous powers and can do much good in the way of helping people and inspiring faith, yet it does not make them perfect. 
 *note* the Kambli explains this really good....he means the yogis or saints are still bound on the consciousness factor,which is fractal..personal,family,nation,and finally universal...on that final level,they think they are gods,even the SOURCE ....THINK!..everything is in the SOURCE..you can't be the source..you are inside the SOURCE,always!!!!
Ponder!..this means they have NOT transcended the chains binding them...that's what he tries to say...but of course,Kambli never encountered sahaja yoga,where your kundalini is raised without effort in minutes,even so in a small amount,to give you the taste of the heaven...then is up to you if you cultivate it..remember the attention is the ONLY POWER you have..the rest is the resonant factor of interdependent universal mind you happened to put your attention on...you are ALWAYS a resonator,unless you unite your MIND with the Energy...and understand the process...be aware of my words..thus SPOKENTH THE MAHAYOGI!
(added by danny)


It is not a way to reality, but merely an enrichment of the false. All effort leads to more effort; whatever was built up must be maintained, whatever was acquired must be protected against decay or loss. Whatever can be lost is not really one's own; and what is not your own of what use can it be to you? In my world nothing is pushed about, all happens by itself. All existence is in space and time, limited and temporary. He who experiences existence is also limited and temporary. I am not concerned either with 'what exists' or with 'who exists'. I take my stand beyond, where I am both and neither.
*note*both and neither he explains about something else..imagine 1 plus 1 equal 2..and you think 2 is different..in real spirituality..2 is 1..then 2 is zero..then 2 is both 1 plus 1..in other words,is a very difficult topic to explain..you are both ,and neither...
Only those whom had access to high samadhi levels,or those in Nirvikalpa could understand this.
Imagine a different vibration level..and it contains the others..see?..grasshoppers?
That's the most I can explain,because is neither this,nor that,but is INSIDE of this or that..PONDER!..and also outside..this will boggle your mind,don't try to understand...YOU'LL GET A HEADACHE..
-added by danny-
The persons who, after much effort and penance, have fulfilled their ambitions and secured higher levels of experience and action, are usually acutely conscious of their standing; they grade people into hierarchies, ranging from the lowest non-achiever to the highest achiever. To me all are equal. Differences in appearance and expression are there, but they do not matter. 
 *note* the spirit is one,he means..
-added by danny-
Just as the shape of a gold ornament does not affect the gold, so does man's essence remain unaffected. Where this sense of equality is lacking it means that reality had not been touched.
Mere knowledge is not enough; the knower must be known. The Pandits and the Yogis may know many things, but of what use is mere knowledge when the self is not known? It will be certainly misused. Without the knowledge of the knower there can be no peace. 
*note*..Knowledge of the Knower..what does this means?
Think...there is someone inside you whom knows that you're knowing.
Find that in meditation,and you''ll be ok..
-added by danny-


Q:   How does one come to know the knower?
M:  I can only tell you what I know from my own experience. When I met my Guru, he told me: 'You are not what you take yourself to be. Find out what you are. Watch the sense 'I am', find your real self'. I obeyed him, because I trusted him. I did as he told me. All my spare time I would spend looking at myself in silence. And what a difference it made, and how soon! It took me only three years to realise my true nature. My Guru died soon after I met him, but it made no difference. I remembered what he told me and persevered. The fruit of it is here, with me.
*note* that is dedication..he just trusted the message...and tried to see if is true..that's true commitment,indeed..
-added by danny-
Q:   What is it?
M:  I know myself as I am in reality. I am neither the body, nor the mind, nor the mental faculties. I am beyond all these.
Q:   Are you just nothing?
M:  Come on, be reasonable. Of course I am, most tangibly. Only I am not what you may think me to be. This tells you all.
Q:   It tells me nothing.
M:  Because it cannot be told. You must gain your own experience.
 *note* this stuff can't be told,nore explained..it would be like someone explaining you the rays of sunshine,while you have lived in a dark cave all your life..only if you DO you can KNow..PONDER!..you are what you DO not what you believe,or imagine..by knowing the sunshine..you'll KNOW it by yourself..that was what Kambli tried to convey.
-added by danny-
You are accustomed to deal with things, physical and mental. I am not a thing, nor are you. We are neither matter nor energy, neither body nor mind. Once you have a glimpse of your own being, you will not find me difficult to understand.
We believe in so many things on hearsay. We believe in distant lands and people, in heavens and hells, in gods and goddesses, because we were told. Similarly, we were told about ourselves, our parents, name, position, duties and so on. We never cared to verify. The way to truth lies through the destruction of the false. To destroy the false, you must question your most inveterate beliefs. Of these the idea that you are the body is the worst. With the body comes the world, with the world -- God, who is supposed to have created the world and thus it starts -- fears, religions, prayers, sacrifices, all sorts of systems -- all to protect and support the child-man, frightened out of his wits by monsters of his own making. realize that what you are cannot be born nor die and with the fear gone all suffering ends.
*note* is it interesting that the Kambli just tells you what to do,like you could do it..
If that was so simple,humanity would be a happy heaven on earth by now..the fact that he got the ultimate truth is good..but to tell people that using mind they can ,by simple realizing ,,that you can not be born,or die,,is simple cretinism,since is like telling a chicken to understand that he is the Source.(which he is,by the way..)
That's why mahayogis like me are born..to give you the methods..
-added by danny-
What the mind invents, the mind destroys. But the real is not invented and cannot be destroyed. Hold on to that over which the mind has no power. What I am telling you about is neither in the past nor in the future. Nor is it in the daily life as it flows in the now. It is timeless and the total timelessness of it is beyond the mind. My Guru and his words: 'You are myself' are timelessly with me. In the beginning I had to fix my mind on them, but now it has become natural and easy. The point when the mind accepts the words of the Guru as true and lives by them spontaneously and in every detail of daily life is the threshold of realization. In a way it is salvation by faith, but the faith must be intense and lasting.
*note* craving,not faith..craving for a PROVEN method..not faith..faith can only open up your karmik choices..faith is blind..prove IT TO me,and I'll be ok,KAMBLI...!!!!
-ADDED BY DANNY-


However, you must not think that faith itself is enough. Faith expressed in action is a sure means to realization. Of all the means it is the most effective. There are teachers who deny faith and trust reason only. Actually it is not faith they deny, but blind beliefs. Faith is not blind. It is the willingness to try.
*note*..You are myself,,..remember my quote ""To us all towns are one, all men our kin. Life's good comes not from others' gift, nor ill. Man's pains and pains' relief are from within. Thus have we seen in visions of the wise !." - Tamil Poem-
-added by danny- ok?
Q:   We were told that of all forms of spiritual practices the practice of the attitude of a mere witness is the most efficacious. How does it compare with faith?
*note*the witness is autonomous ..if you try to witness,you're not there.,nore connected with IT,your true self...but in the beginning you must.
-added by danny-
M:  The witness attitude is also faith; it is faith in oneself. You believe that you are not what you experience and you look at everything as from a distance. There is no effort in witnessing. You understand that you are the witness only and the understanding acts. You need nothing more, just remember that you are the witness only. If in the state of witnessing you ask yourself: 'Who am I?', the answer comes at once, though it is wordless and silent. Cease to be the object and become the subject of all that happens; once having turned within, you will find yourself beyond the subject. When you have found yourself, you will find that you are also beyond the object, that both the subject and the object exist in you, but you are neither.
*note*the witness is autonomous ..if you try to witness,you're not there.,nore connected with IT,your true self...but in the beginning you must...READ AGAIN My wisdom!!
-added by danny-Q:   You speak of the mind, of the witnessing consciousness beyond the mind and of the Supreme, which is beyond awareness. Do you mean to say that even awareness is not real?
M:  As long as you deal in terms: real -- unreal; awareness is the only reality that can be. But the Supreme is beyond all distinctions and to it the term 'real' does not apply, for in it all is real and, therefore, need not be labelled as such. It is the very source of reality, it imparts reality to whatever it touches. It just cannot be understood through words. Even a direct experience, however sublime, merely bears testimony, nothing more.
*note* real does NOT apply,since both real and false are one....however there is the resonance factor of the one whom is joy..wisdom and power..that one is a resonant factor,unless you make it permanent thru understand,be careful..on that level,even energy is false...ponder of my mahayogi words..grasshoppers from heaven...
-added by danny-
Q:   But who creates the world?
M:  The Universal Mind (chidakash) makes and unmakes everything. The Supreme (paramakash) imparts reality to whatever comes into being. To say that it is the universal love may be the nearest we can come to it in words. Just like love it makes everything real, beautiful, desirable.
*note* rather think ,,unity,, and,, individuality,,..the ONE can't know itself other then thru you,even so you are the One,but you don't know it..Paradox?..get use to them..whom said you could ever understand the mystery of creation ?..nobody can.
-added by danny-
Q:   Why desirable?
M:  Why not? Where from come all the powerful attractions that make all created things respond to each other, that bring people together, if not from the Supreme? Shun not desire; see only that it flows into the right channels. Without desire you are dead. But with low desires you are a ghost.
*note* he means concentrate on the pure desire,to know the TRUTH..that's all..
-added by danny-
Q:   What is the experience which comes nearest to the Supreme?
M:  Immense peace and boundless love... realize that whatever there is true, noble and beautiful in the universe, it all comes from you, that you yourself are at the source of it. The gods and goddesses that supervise the world may be most wonderful and glorious beings; yet they are like the gorgeously dressed servants who proclaim the power and the riches of their master.
 *note* he means the Supreme Emptiness is the source of gods also..but they forgot it,and take it as permanent ..
-added by danny-
Q:   How does one reach the Supreme State?
M:  By renouncing all lesser desires. As long as you are pleased with the lesser, you cannot have the highest. Whatever pleases you, keeps you back. Until you realise the unsatisfactoriness of everything, its transiency and limitation, and collect your energies in one great longing, even the first step is not made. On the other hand, the integrity of the desire for the Supreme is by itself a call from the Supreme. Nothing, physical or mental, can give you freedom. You are free once you understand that your bondage is of your own making and you cease forging the chains that bind you.
*note* what you love also LOVES YOU..you don't have to worry about it..the SOURCE knows how to awaken you,if you have that desire..trust the mahayogi..or trust the Source inside you.
-added by danny-
Q:   How does one find the faith in a Guru?
M:  To find the Guru and also the trust in him is rare luck. It does not happen often.
Q:   Is it destiny that ordains?
M:  Calling it destiny explains little. When it happens you cannot say why it happens and you merely cover up your ignorance by calling it karma or Grace, or the Will of God.
Q:   Krishnamurti says that Guru is not needed.
*note* I regard  Krishnamurti as an idiot..I really am not sure what he was about..
Only an idiot would say that no guru is needed.
Is like saying that after you are born,you don't need someone to teach you any language.
Krishnamurti was NOT realized in my opinion...
-added by danny-
M:  Somebody must tell you about the Supreme Reality and the way that leads to it. Krishnamurti is doing nothing else. In a way he is right -- most of the so-called disciples do not trust their Gurus; they disobey them and finally abandon them. For such disciples it would have been infinitely better if they had no Guru at all and just looked within for guidance. to find a living Guru is a rare opportunity and a great responsibility. One should not treat these matters lightly. You people are out to buy yourself the heaven and you imagine that the Guru will supply it for a price. You seek to strike a bargain by offering little but asking much. You cheat nobody except yourselves.
Q:   You were told by your Guru that you are the Supreme and you trusted him and acted on it. What gave you this trust?
M:  Say, I was just reasonable. It would have been foolish to distrust him. What interest could he possibly have in misleading me?
Q:   You told a questioner that we are the same, that we are equals. I cannot believe it. Since I do not believe it, of what use is your statement to me?
M:  Your disbelief does not matter. My words are true and they will do their work. This is the beauty of noble company (satsang).
*note* eghhh..Kambli talks again about some secrets..you see..when a realized man talks..the words remain in other people's minds...it comes with the power aspect...why is thaT?..BECAUSE THE TRUTH IN YOU KNOWS...even if you don't...PONDER.........
-ADDED BY DANNY-
Q:   Just sitting near you can it be considered spiritual practice?
M:  Of course. The river of life is flowing. Some of its water is here, but so much of it has already reached its goal. You know only the present. I see much further into the past and future, into what you are and what you can be. I cannot but see you as myself. It is in the very nature of love to see no difference.
Q:   How can I come to see myself as you see me?
M:  It is enough if you do not imagine yourself to be the body. It is the 'I-am-the-body' idea that is so calamitous. It blinds you completely to your real nature. Even for a moment do not think that you are the body. Give yourself no name, no shape. In the darkness and the silence reality is found.
Q:   Must not I think with some conviction that I am not the body? Where am I to find such conviction?
M:  Behave as if you were fully convinced and the confidence will come. What is the use of mere words? A formula, a mental pattern will not help you. But unselfish action, free from all concern with the body and its interests will carry you into the very heart of Reality.
Q:   Where am I to get the courage to act without conviction?
M:  Love will give you the courage. When you meet somebody wholly admirable, love-worthy, sublime, your love and admiration will give you the urge to act nobly.
Q:   Not everybody knows to admire the admirable. Most of the people are totally insensitive.
M:  Life will make them appreciate. The very weight of accumulated experience will give them eyes to see. When you meet a worthy man, you will love and trust him and follow his advice. This is the role of the realised people -- to set an example of perfection for others to admire and love. Beauty of life and character is a tremendous contribution to the common good.
Q:   Must we not suffer to grow?
M:  It is enough to know that there is suffering, that the world suffers. By themselves neither pleasure nor pain enlighten. Only understanding does. Once you have grasped the truth that the world is full of suffering, that to be born is a calamity, you will find the urge and the energy to go beyond it. Pleasure puts you to sleep and pain wakes you up. If you do not want to suffer, don't go to sleep. You cannot know yourself through bliss alone, for bliss is your very nature. You must face the opposite, what you are not, to find enlightenment.
*note* no more comments..HERE KAMBLI IN HIS SUPERIOR WISDOM explains the make-up of the universe...read again..you MUST face the opposite,what you are not..to find what you really are..since bliss is your very nature,you'd not believe it..see?..that is the secret of the creation itself,and the individualization process ...whom have ears to hear,let them hear...you are here to EXPERIENCE THIS!!!!
Thus spokenth the mahayogi to the bewildered grasshoppers from heaven!

Silence!!..I kill you says Achmed,the dead one..

 
Lead me from dreaming to waking.
Lead me from opacity to clarity. Lead me from the complicated to the simple. Lead me from the obscure to the obvious. Lead me from intention to attention. Lead me from what I'm told I am to what I see I am. Lead me from confrontation to wide openness. Lead me to the place I never left, Where there is peace, and peace -

*note* hilarious  Jeff Dunham makes fun of the dead terrorists..lol.....a must watch..
kisses to Achmed...may he live long and prosper,indeed!

Achmed the Dead Terrorist

Achmed is the skeletal corpse of an incompetent suicide bomber, whom Dunham uses to satirize the contemporary issue of terrorism. He is known for yelling, "Silence! I kill you!" to Dunham and people laughing in the audience. Achmed first appeared in Spark of Insanity, and later made an appearance in the Very Special Christmas Special, singing a song called "Jingle Bombs". He also dubs the so-called Guitar Guy "You racist bastard"! for warming up with typical Arab chords. Most of the humor Dunham expresses with Achmed centers on this motif. When mentioning that Achmed appears to be dead because he's a skeleton, Achmed responds, "It's a flesh wound." When Dunham inquires as to how he died, Achmed explains his incompetence with explosives, while also casting aspersions on Dunham's sexual prowess, by saying that they both suffer from "premature detonation." Although he frequently mentions working for Osama Bin Laden, Achmed claims he does not think he's a Muslim ("look at my ass! It says 'Made in China'"). As of June 2009, the sketch in which Dunham introduced Achmed is the fourth most watched online video ever, having amassed nearly 200 million views.



To nourish the vital energy, keep watch in silence;

Responding to phenomena, you must be unconfused.

But the one who admires the emptiness, who is awestruck by the emptiness, that one still survives!


Lead me from dreaming to waking.
Lead me from opacity to clarity. Lead me from the complicated to the simple. Lead me from the obscure to the obvious. Lead me from intention to attention. Lead me from what I'm told I am to what I see I am. Lead me from confrontation to wide openness. Lead me to the place I never left,

Where there is peace, and peace


The Upanishads It is written..shape clay into a vessel

It is the space within that gives it value
Place doors and windows in a house
It is the opening that brings light within
Set spokes within a wheel
It is the emptiness of the hub
That makes them useful
Therefore,be the space at the center
Be nothing
And you will have everything
To give to others...
*note* I'll make a point for you,grasshoppers from heaven... to read again these words from a previous post of mine..this one... http://kriptodanny.blogspot.com/2011/08/some-basic-teachings-on-cittaor-mind.html
 wrote from Maha Boowa,of course..
here he says,,Maha Boowa relates that the core of an individual's being and Nibbana are quite distinct in a dhamma talk with a disciple of his, Mae Chee Kaew
-added by danny-
When you investigate mental phenomena until you go beyond them completely, the remaining defiling elements of consciousness will be drawn into a radiant nucleus of awareness, which merges with the mind’s naturally radiant essence. This radiance is so majestic and mesmerizing that even transcendent faculties like spontaneous mindfulness and intuitive wisdom invariably fall under its spell. The mind’s brightness and clarity appear to be so extraordinary and awe-inspiring, that nothing can possibly compare. The luminous essence is the epitome of perfect goodness and virtue, the ultimate in spiritual happiness. It is your true, original self — the core of your being. But this true self is also the fundamental source of all attachment to being and becoming. Ultimately it is attachment to the allure of this primordial radiance of mind that causes living beings to wander indefinitely through the world of becoming and ceasing, constantly grasping at birth and enduring death.

The fundamental cause of that attachment is the very delusion about your true self. Delusion is responsible for all the defiling elements of consciousness, and its avenue of escape is the ongoing momentum of conscious activity. In this sphere, delusion reigns supreme. But once mindfulness and wisdom are skilled enough to eliminate conscious activity and therefore close this outlet, delusions created by the flow of mental phenomena cease. Severing all of its external outflows leaves delusion no room to maneuver inside the mind, forcing it to gather into the radiant nucleus from which all knowing emanates. That center of knowing appears as a luminous emptiness that truly overwhelms and amazes.

But that radiant emptiness should not be mistaken for the pure emptiness of Nibbana. The two are as different as night and day. The radiant mind is the original mind of the cycle of constant becoming; but it is not the essence of mind which is fully pure and free from birth and death. Radiance is a very subtle, natural condition whose uniform brightness and clarity make it appear empty. This is your original nature beyond name and form. But it is not yet Nibbana. It is the very substance of mind that has been well-cleansed to the point where a mesmerizing and majestic quality of knowing is its outstanding feature. When the mind finally relinquishes all attachment to forms and concepts, the knowing essence assumes exceedingly refined qualities. It has let go of everything — except itself. It remains permeated by a fundamental delusion about its own true nature. Because of that, the radiant essence has turned into a subtle form of self without you realizing it. You end up believing that the subtle feelings of happiness and the shining radiance are the unconditioned essence of mind. Oblivious to your delusion, you accept this majestic mind as the finished product. You believe it to be Nibbana, the transcendent emptiness of pure mind.

But emptiness, radiance, clarity and happiness are all subtle conditions of a mind still bound by delusion. When you observe the emptiness carefully, with sustained attention, you will observe that it is not really uniform, not really constant. The emptiness produced by primal delusion is the result of subtle conditions. Sometimes it changes a little — just a little — but enough for you to know that it’s transient. Subtle variations can be detected, because all conditioned phenomena — no matter how refined, bright and majestic they seem — invariably manifest some irregular symptoms.

If it is truly Nibbāna, why does this refined state of the mind display a variety of subtle conditions? It is not constant and true. Focus on that luminous center to see clearly that its radiance has the same characteristics — of being transient, imperfect and unessential — as all the other phenomena that you have already transcended. The only difference is that the radiance is far more subtle and refined.

Try imagining yourself standing in an empty room. You look around and see only empty space — everywhere. Absolutely nothing occupies that space — except you, standing in the middle of the room. Admiring its emptiness, you forget about yourself. You forget that you occupy a central position in that space. How then can the room be empty? As long as someone remains in the room, it is not truly empty. When you finally realize that the room can never be truly empty until you depart, that is the moment when that fundamental delusion about your true self disintegrates, and the pure, delusion-free mind arises.

Once the mind has let go of phenomena of every sort, the mind appears supremely empty; but the one who admires the emptiness, who is awestruck by the emptiness, that one still survives. The self as reference point which is the essence of all false knowing, remains integrated into the mind’s knowing essence. This self-perspective is the primary delusion. Its presence represents the difference between the subtle emptiness of the radiant mind and the transcendent emptiness of the pure mind, free of all forms of delusion. Self is the real impediment. As soon as it disintegrates and disappears, no more impediments remain. Transcendent emptiness appears. As in the case of a person in an empty room, we can say that the mind is truly empty only when the self leaves for good. This transcendent emptiness is a total and permanent disengagement that requires no further effort to maintain.

Delusion is an intrinsically blind awareness, masquerading as radiance, clarity and happiness. As such, it is the self’s ultimate safe haven. But those treasured qualities are all products of subtle causes and conditions. True emptiness occurs only when every single trace of one’s conditioned reality disappears.

As soon as you turn around and know it for what it is, that false awareness simply disintegrates. Clouding your vision with its splendor, that luminous deception has all along been concealing the mind’s true, natural wonder."Our real problem, our one fundamental problem—which is also the citta’s fundamental problem—is that we lack the power needed to be our own true self. Instead, we have always taken counterfeit things to be the essence of who we really are, so that the citta’s behavior is never in harmony with its true nature. Rather, it expresses itself through the kilesas’ cunning deceits, which cause it to feel anxious and frightened of virtually everything … As a result, the citta is forever full of worries and fears. And although fear and worry are not intrinsic to the citta, they still manage to produce apprehension there. When the citta has been cleansed so that it is absolutely pure and free of all involvement, only then will we see a citta devoid of all fear. Then, neither fear nor courage appear, only the citta’s true nature, existing naturally alone on its own, forever independent of time and space. Only that appears—nothing else. This is the genuine citta..
Bua goes on to attempt to describe the inner stages and experience of the cleansed citta. When its purgation of defilements is complete, it itself does not disappear – only the impermanent, suffering, and the non-Self disappear. The citta remains, experientially abiding in its own firm foundation, yet ultimately indescribable:
‘Once the Citta has become so well-cleansed that it is always bright and clear, then … even though the citta has not ‘converged’ in samãdhi, the focal point of its awareness is so exceedingly delicate and refined as to be indescribable. This subtle awareness manifests as a radiance that extends forth in all directions around us. We are unconscious of sights, sounds, odors, tastes, and tactile sensations, despite the fact that the citta has not entered samãdhi. Instead, it is actually experiencing its own firm foundation, the very basis of the citta that has been well-cleansed to the point where a mesmerizing, majestic quality of knowing is its most prominent feature.

‘Once the Citta has become so well-cleansed that it is always bright  and clear, then … even though the citta has not ‘converged’ in samãdhi,  the focal point of its awareness is so exceedingly delicate and refined  as to be indescribable.

Seeming to exist independent of the physical body, this kind of  extremely refined awareness stands out exclusively within the citta. Due  to the subtle and pronounced nature of the citta at this stage, its  knowing nature completely predominates. No images or visions appear  there at all. It is an awareness that stands out exclusively on its own.  This is one aspect of the citta.




‘Another aspect is seen when this well-cleansed citta enters  meditative calm, not thinking or imagining anything. Ceasing all  activity, all movement, it simply rests for awhile. All thought and  imagination within the citta come to a complete halt. This is called  “the citta entering a state of total calm.” Then, the citta’s essential  knowing nature is all that remains. Except for this very refined  awareness—an awareness that seems to blanket the entire  cosmos—absolutely nothing else appears… Distance is not a factor. To be  precise, the citta is beyond the conditions of time and space, which  allows it to blanket everything. Far is like near, for concepts of space  do not apply. All that appears is a very refined awareness suffusing  everything throughout the entire universe. The whole world seems to be  filled by this subtle quality of knowing, as though nothing else exists,  though things still exist in the world as they always have. The  all-encompassing flow of the citta that has been cleansed of the things  that cloud and obscure it, this is the citta’s true power.





'The citta that is absolutely pure is even more difficult to  describe. Since it is something that defies definition, I don’t know how  I could characterize it. It cannot be expressed in the same way that  conventional things in general can be, simply because it is not a  conventional phenomenon. It is the sole province of those who have  transcended all aspects of conventional reality, and thus realize within  themselves that non-conventional nature. For this reason, words cannot  describe it.





'Why do we speak of a “Conventional” Citta and an “absolutely pure”  citta? Are they actually two different cittas? Not at all. It remains  the same citta. When it is controlled by conventional realities, such as  kilesas and ãsavas, that is one condition of the citta. But when the  faculty of wisdom has scrubbed it clean until this condition has totally  disintegrated, the true citta, the true Dhamma, the one that can stand  the test, will not disintegrate and disappear along with it. Only the  conditions of anicca, dukkha, and anattã, which infiltrate the citta,  actually disappear.





'No matter how subtle the kilesas may be, they are still conditioned  by anicca, dukkha, and anattã, and therefore, must be conventional  phenomena. Once these things have completely disintegrated, the true  citta, the one that has transcended conventional reality, becomes fully  apparent. This is called the citta’s Absolute Freedom, or the citta’s  Absolute Purity. All connections continuing from the citta’s previous  condition have been severed forever. Now utterly pure, the citta’s  essential knowing nature remains alone on its own….





'Since this refined awareness does not have a point or a center, it  is impossible to specifically locate its position. There is only that  essential knowing, with absolutely nothing infiltrating it. Although it  still exists amid the same khandhas with which it used to intermix, it  no longer shares any common characteristics with them. It is a world  apart. Only then do we know clearly that the body, the khandhas, and the  citta are all distinct and separate realities…'[8]









To nourish the vital energy, keep watch in silence;










In order to subdue the mind, act with non-action.








Of movement and stillness, be aware of their origin;







There is no work to do, much less someone to seek.







The true and constant must respond to phenomena;







Responding to phenomena, you must be unconfused.







When unconfused, the nature will stabilize by itself;







When the nature stabilizes, energy returns by itself.







When energy returns, the elixir crystallizes by itself;







Within the pot, the trigrams of heaven and earth are joined.







Yīn and yáng arise, alternating over and over again;







Every transformation comes like a clap of thunder.







White clouds form and come to assemble at the peak;







The sweet nectar sprinkles down Mount Sumeru.







Swallow for yourself this wine of immortality;







You wander so freely—who is able to know you?







Sit and listen to the tune played without strings;







Clearly understand the mechanism of creation.







It comes entirely from these twenty lines;







A true ladder going straight to Heaven.-Daoist text -












To us all towns are one, all men our kin. Life's good comes not from others' gift, nor ill. Man's pains and pains' relief are from within. Thus have we seen in visions of the wise !." - Tamil Poem-

The Mighty Face of Kripto :)..This is how you scare a Canadian,indeed!

Lead me from opacity to clarity. Lead me from the complicated to the simple. Lead me from the obscure to the obvious. Lead me from intention to attention. Lead me from what I'm told I am to what I see I am. Lead me from confrontation to wide openness. Lead me to the place I never left, Where there is peace, and peace -
The Upanishads

Kripto does not sketch himself in the idealized form of an enlightened one, or even in the realistic image of an austere zenji, but as a bald, fat, cross-eyed and hunch-backed old man with a 12 inch ear lobe...but then he kissed you:)...Lovely story of the creation purpose...shakti means manifestation,and shiva means the origin of it..the kiss is the joy of emptiness knowing itself...kisses from the mahayogi to you,grasshoppers from heaven!

First day of your kripto birthday life......ponder,grasshoppers from heaven!!

Lead me from opacity to clarity. Lead me from the complicated to the simple. Lead me from the obscure to the obvious. Lead me from intention to attention. Lead me from what I'm told I am to what I see I am. Lead me from confrontation to wide openness. Lead me to the place I never left, Where there is peace, and peace -
The Upanishads It is written..shape clay into a vessel
It is the space within that gives it value
Place doors and windows in a house
It is the opening that brings light within
Set spokes within a wheel
It is the emptiness of the hub
That makes them useful
Therefore,be the space at the center
Be nothing
And you will have everything
To give to others..

quote"So I found a reason to stay alive,
Try a little harder, see the other side.
Talking to myself
Too many sleepless nights,
Trying to find a meaning to this stupid life.
I don't want your sympathy,
Sometimes I don't know who to be.
Hey what ya looking for?
No one has the answer
They just want more
Hey who's gonna make it back?
This could be the first
Day of my life

So I found a reason
To let it go
Tell you that I'm smiling
But I still need to grow.

Will I find salvation in the arms of love?
Will it stop me searching? Will it be enough?

I don't want your sympathy.
Sometimes I don't know who to be.

Hey what ya looking for?
No one has the answer, you just want more
Hey who's gonna make it back?
This could be the first day of my life.

The first time to really feel alive
The first time to break the chain
The first time to walk away from pain

Hey, what ya looking for?
No one has the answer - we just want more
Hey, who's gonna make it back?
This could be the first day of your life.
Hey what ya looking for?
No one has the answer they just want more...

Hey, who's gonna shine a light?

This could be the first day of my life..."
Amazing..kisses to her...
