It's Not Too Late to Get Enlightenment, Part 3 of 5 Nov 26, 1994, Thailand

It's Not Too Late to Get Enlightenment, Part 3 of 5 Nov 26, 1994, Thailand

The Buddha has 84,000 methods to teach the disciples. I think I'll make use of every one of them. Anything that can help sentient beings to realize their true nature and leave aside the attachment at the end, it is a good method, it's a good way. It is the same way of learning, just a more charming, more attractive way of learning. Just a way of putting color into this miserable situation and trying to make the best out of our lives while we are waiting for our final liberation from the physical prison.

Selection from Spiritual Gems: Baba Sawan Singh Ji's Letters, Part 1 of 2

Gur Mat(Sant Mat) is above all religions. The ritualistic part of all religions is blind and misleading; no matter what the religion might be – whether our own or of other people. As to the good and bad things or the sin and the virtue, both becoming meaningless, that may be. When you leave the British Territory and pass into the land of the Pathans, who can ask you to account for your deeds? While you are here in the region of Kal, you have to account for all that you do. Once you cross over to the region of Dayal (Merciful), who can touch you? This applies only when you have actually crossed the boundary of Kal.

Selection from Ralph Waldo Emerson's Book “Nature”: Essays “Discipline” and “Spirit,” Part 2 of 2

Each creature is only a modification of the other; the likeness in them is more than the difference, and their radical law is one and the same. So intimate is this Unity, that, it is easily seen. For, it pervades Thought also. The eye, - the mind, and these are incomparably the richest informations of the power and order that lie at the heart of things. That spirit creates; one and not compound, it does not act upon us from without, that is, in space and time, but spiritually, or through ourselves: therefore, that spirit, that is, the Supreme Being.

Selected Poems from Gitanjali by Rabindranath Tagore, Part 1 of 2

The first Nobel Prize winner for Literature from Asia, Rabindranath Tagore, is renowned for introducing new prose and verse forms, plus the use of colloquial language into Bengali literature, instead of adopting the usual traditional models based on classical Sanskrit. “Gitanjali” (Song Offerings) contains Tagore’s English prose translations of religious poems from several of his Bengali verse collections, which resulted in him winning the Nobel Prize in 1913. “Ah, my master. …I shall ever try to keep all untruths out from my thoughts, knowing that thou art that truth which has kindled the light of reason in my mind. I shall ever try to drive all evils away from my heart and keep my love in flower, knowing that thou hast thy seat in the inmost shrine of my heart.”

Jainism's Holy Akaranga Sutra: Book I, Seventh Lecture - Liberation, Lessons 1 - 4, Part 2 of 2

Jainism's Holy Akaranga Sutra: Book I, Seventh Lecture - Liberation, Lessons 1 - 4, Part 2 of 2

Excerpts from Book I - Lecture 7 from Jainism’s Akaranga Sutra: A householder, without betraying his intention, may approach a mendicant and give unto him or prepare pleasant lodgings and accommodate the mendicant. A mendicant should well observe and know it that the householder injures living beings to give, he may order the householder not to show such over-attentiveness. Thus I say. Those who are awakened, should not wish for pleasure, nor do harm, nor desire any forbidden things. A person who is without desires and does no harm unto any living beings in the whole world, is called by me ‘unfettered’. One free from passions understands perfectly the bright one, knowing birth in the upper and nether regions.

The Inner Path back to the Source: Selections from Dadu Dayal (vegetarian): The Compassionate Mystic, Part 1 of 2

The Inner Path back to the Source: Selections from Dadu Dayal (vegetarian): The Compassionate Mystic, Part 1 of 2

One such great spiritual teacher is Sant (Saint) Dadu Dayal from the same tradition as Saint Kabir. He lived during the 16th century. “Dadu” means brother and“Dayal”is “the Compassionate One.” Instead, he concentrated on Japa (repetition of Divine Names) as well as remembrance of the original divine source and his inner connection and whole-hearted devotion to God. The group of Dadu's followers are known as the Dadu Panth and refrain from alcohol and uphold vegetarianism. “The world is a river of suffering, And God is the Ocean of Bliss. Forsake the worthless and go To the Ocean of Bliss, says Dadu. Having no desire for name or fame, let one serve the Lord. Abandoning everything else, take the true Name alone, says Dadu. Kal (time) is a fabrication; never go near him. So long as the heart is set on the Lord, life in this world is well lived. Living without the Lord is useless, O Dadu. If the Lord is obtained, all is obtained. Meeting with the Lord means meeting with all. If the Lord is there, all is there, Otherwise all is naught.”

The Creation of Nurturers on Earth: Exploring Mayan Spirituality in the Sacred Book “Popol Vuh,” Part 1 of 2

The ancient Mayan civilization, known to be one of the most technologically advanced of its time, inhabited regions of Central America and southern Mexico several thousand years ago. It is with great awe that we invite you to explore some of the most important and profound insights our ancestors wanted to communicate to us through "Popol Vuh," one of the most important Mayan holy books. "Popol Vuh," or "Council Book," was written by a group of Mayan writers between 1554-1558. It encompasses the story of physical creation, and the history of Mayan people who once lived on the land called Quiché, in the highlands of Guatemala. “The Gods created this world so that it could be nurtured and appreciated. So, humans, according to the Great Plan, have the honored role of caring guardians rather than so-called owners. In the first attempt of such a great plan, animals were created but the results were not successful. However, the attempt shows us the ideal attributes that the Divine Creators wanted us to have: communication and guidance from our Heavenly Home.”

Teachings of Chuang Tzu: Chapter 13, The Heaven's Tao, Part 1 of 4

The great enlightened Master Chuang Tzu lived from approximately 369 to 286 BC. He is considered one of the greatest literary and philosophical figures of China. His philosophy is contained in the book bearing his name, Chuang Tzu. His teachings were true to "wu-wei," the Taoist doctrine meaning to refrain from action contrary to nature. Today, we present to you an excerpt from Chapter 13, “Heavenly Tao” from the teachings of Chuang Tzu. "The Way (Tao) of Nature is to continue moving without stopping to accumulate anything, thus all living things flourish…. One who understands clearly the Way of Nature, the Way of Sages, and is perfectly familiar with the virtue of emperors and kings, acts and lets things act spontaneously from themselves. Even when in the dark, they would invariably remain calm."

Selection from Yoga Sutras of Patanjali: Book I & II, Part 2 of 2

The pain-bearing obstructions are- ignorance, egoism, attachment, aversion, and clinging to life. Restraint (Yama), binding observance (Niyama), posture (Asana), regulation of breath (Pranayama), abstraction and sense-withdrawal (Pratya hara), concentration (Dharana), contemplation (Dhyana) and perfect meditative absorption (Samadhi) are the eight limbs of yoga. Of these, non-violence (Ahimsa), non-stealing (Asteya), continence (Brahmacharya) and non-possessiveness (Aparigraha) are the five forms of restraint (Yamas). These, unbroken by time, place, purpose, and caste, are (universal) great vows. Pratyahara, abstraction or dissociation, is the disjoining of the sense-organs from their respective objects, assuming, as it were, the nature of the mind itself. Thence comes supreme control of the senses.

The Baha'i Faith's ”Gems of Divine Mysteries”: Paragraphs 25-33

The essence of the divine mysteries in the journeys of ascent set forth for those who long to draw nigh unto God, the Almighty, the Ever-Forgiving – blessed be the righteous that drink from these crystal streams! HE IS THE EXALTED, THE MOST HIGH! Veiled as they remain within their own selves, the generality of the people have failed to perceive the sweet accents of holiness, inhale the fragrance of mercy, or seek guidance, as bidden by God, from those who are the custodians of the Scriptures. He proclaims, and His word, verily, is the truth: “Ask ye, therefore, of them that have custody of the Scriptures, if ye know it not.” Nay rather, they have turned aside from them and followed instead the Sámirí of their own idle fancies.

The Creation of Nurturers on Earth: Exploring Mayan Spirituality in the Sacred Book “Popol Vuh,” Part 2 of 2

“Popol Vuh” describes how humans were created from a mix of yellow and white corn. “They (the first four humans) were good people, handsome with looks of the male kind. Thoughts came into existence and they gazed; their vision came all at once. Perfectly they saw, perfectly then knew everything under the sky, whenever they looked. The moment they turned around and looked around in the sky, on the earth, everything was seen without any obstruction. They didn’t have to walk around before they could see what was under the sky; they just stayed where they were. …And they (the first four humans) saw everything under the sky perfectly. After that, they thanked the Maker, Modeler: ‘Truly now, double thanks, triple thanks that we’ve been formed, we’ve been given our mouths, our faces, we speak, we listen, we wonder, we move, our knowledge is good, we’ve understood what is far and near, and we’ve seen what is great and small under the sky, on the earth. Thanks to you we’ve been formed, we’ve come to be made and modeled, our grandmother, our grandfather…’”

From the Rosicrucian Order’s The Sanctuary of Self: on the Mystical Life, Part 1 of 3

The Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis, also known as the Rosicrucian Order, AMORC, is a worldwide cultural, educational, and philosophical organization that is perpetuating profound and practical teachings of the Rosicrucians. These teachings, as passed down and added to over the centuries from ancient Egypt to Europe and now all over the world, pertain to the mysteries of the universe, nature, and humans themselves. Today we will explore the process that could lead us to the mystical life according to the Rosicrucian Order, in Chapter 1 of the book “The Sanctuary of Self” by the late Rosicrucian leader Ralph M. Lewis. Chapter I THE MYSTICAL LIFE. “The mystical life provides the reason why we live. The mystical life determines the cause of our individual lives and the use to which we should put our bodies and our animal vitality and magnetism. The mystical life, like the physical life, requires certain preparation. If we must study the rules of diet, if we must study hygiene, if we must know the rudiments of good health to be healthy and physically normal, certainly we should give some thought and consideration to the mystical side of our existence as well.”

Jewish Scholar Asa Keisar’s True Vegan World Revolution, Part 2 of 3

00:15:30

Jewish Scholar Asa Keisar’s True Vegan World Revolution, Part 2 of 3

Today, Mr. Asa Keisar readily elaborates on the Holy Torah’s requirement of justice for the animals. “About tza’ar ba’alei chayim (suffering of living creatures), it’s not only for the animals. First, it’s for us. Why? Because if we make suffering for the animal, when we eat, we take bad energy. And this energy makes us angry, makes us not good, not only in the spirit, but even in the body. When the Torah said, ‘Don’t steal from people,’ She doesn’t mean only for the people that you make something bad. You make something bad for you, for your soul, if you steal. All the scholars in Judaism say that there’s no difference in the tza’ar, in the suffering between the animals and human beings. Because the reason is not the intelligence, it’s common sense. And all the animals feel hot and cold, and all kinds of suffering. This is evidence. And Judaism is right 100% in the Book. You know something about kashrut (Jewish dietary laws), if you make suffering for the animals, its not kosher (permitted foods for kashrut).”

Selection from the Book of Lieh Tzu: Chapter 1 - Heaven's Gift, Part 2 of 2

In infancy his energies are concentrated and his inclinations at one- the ultimate of harmony. Other things do not harm him, nothing can add to the virtue in him. “Dying is the virtue in us going to its destination.” The traveler who forgets to go back is a man who mistakes his home. If one man mistakes his home, the whole world disapproves; but when everyone under the sky mistakes his home, no one is wise enough to disapprove. Only the sage knows whom to side with, whom to reject.

Born in 1883, Kahlil Gibran was an enlightened Lebanese philosopher, author, poet, and artist, who immigrated to the United States when he was young.

But some of his best-known works were in English and won the popularity of a wider American audience. Kahlil Gibran’s most famous work is “The Prophet,” a book of 26 poetic essays that he began while still a youth in Lebanon and published in 1923.

Qualities and Powers of the Supra-Universal Realms, September 9, 2017

Do you know the term the “Original Universe” by now? Then I’ll tell you a little about my progress. I was originally from such realms. Of course after I came to this world, I forgot about it. Then slowly, through lots of hardship, I came to such a realization. I used to think that this lifetime was the first time when I returned to the Original Universe. Later I realized that this wasn’t the first time; I've returned there at least two or three times. I’ve ascended to an extremely high level now, surpassing the Original Universe. But all realms originated from the Original Universe. The Original Universe has lots and lots of attributes and powers, right? But after the realms are separated from the Original Universe, they don’t possess as many attributes. Each new realm possesses only a couple of powers. However, each power is very, very strong. Actually, these realms aren’t really new. These are the ones I haven’t entered, so I call them “new realms.” Such realms, each has about 300K to 500K beings, bright and beautiful beings. They’re indescribable.

From Sufism's Sacred Fihi ma Fihi: Discourses of Rumi, Discourse 11, Part 1 of 2

“I am God.” Some people think this is a great pretension, but “I am God” is in fact a great humility. Those who say, instead, “I am a servant of God” believe that two exist, themselves and God. But those who say, “I am God” have become nothing and have cast themselves to the winds. They say, “I am God” meaning, “I am not, God is all. There is no existence but God. I have lost all separation. I am nothing.” In this the humility is greater.
