“Spiritual Doctrine for Spiritual Growth”

“Spiritual Doctrine for Spiritual Growth”

    “Few among men the mortals Who arrive at yonder shore: The rest of the race run hither and thither along the bank.

“Beings of Fire (Light) and Spirit Fear Not Death”

“Beings of Fire (Light) and Spirit Fear Not Death”

    “What laughter now, what joy In being always on fire? In darkness wrapped, ye will not seek a light Behold variegated figure, congested body of wounds; Ailing, with many a resolve, It hath not firmness or stability. Wasted this form, a nest of disease, and frail; Broken the mass of foulness, For life at the end is [...]

“Self-Realization of the Spiritual Kind”

“Self-Realization of the Spiritual Kind”

    “Well have you renounced these passing pleasures so dear to the senses, Nachiketa, and turned your back on the way of the world which makes mankind forget the goal of life. Far apart are wisdom and ignorance. The first leads one to Self-realization. The second makes one more and more estranged from from his real Self. [...]

“All-Knowing Self, Eternal and Formless”

“All-Knowing Self, Eternal and Formless”

    “The all-knowing Self was never born, nor will it die. Beyond cause and effect, this Self is eternal and immutable. When the body dies, the Self does not die.
