Bhagawan Nityananda



El Ser universal está en el Ser individual.
De hecho, la liberación viene de reconocer lo sutil en lo denso,
la unidad en la diversidad,
la similitud en las diferencias,
la verdad en lo falso,
la luz en la oscuridad,
la vida en la muerte.
Esta es la verdadera liberación.
Conoce a tu verdadero Ser.
Un verdadero yogi, un verdadero sannyasin, ha conquistado la mente;
no tiene mente.
Si entras en una habitación oscura después de ver el sol brillante,
¿qué ves?
Mira el Ser con el ojo interior y verás al Ser en todas partes.
El cielo del corazón.


The mind should be like a lotus leaf, which though in water, with its stem in the mud and the flower above, is yet untouched by both. Similarly the mind should be kept untainted by the mud of desires and the water of distractions, even though engaged in worldly activities. Then, just as the stalk, stem, and leaf, when properly cultivated and not disturbed, will culminate in the lotus blossom, similarly, if the detached mind and faith in the Sadguru are firmly established in the lotus of the heart, and never allowed to wax or wane with happiness and difficulties, His grace will be invoked.


There are various tests to which a devotee is subjected: they could be of the mind, of the intellect, of the body, and so on. A number of such tests are there. In fact God is conducting tests all the time; every occurrence in life is a test. Every thought that crops up in the mind is in itself a test to see what one's reaction will be. Hence one must be always alert and aloof, conducting oneself with a spirit of detachment, viewing everything as an opportunity afforded to gain experience, to improve oneself and go on to a higher stage. Desires are the only cause of sorrows in this world. Nothing is brought into this world and nothing can be taken. Everything that happens, happens automatically by the will of God.


Only one principle pervades the entire world.
It is indestructible and beyond decay.
That essential principle is our inner Self.
It is neither near nor far because it is everywhere.
For Nityananda, neither the knowledge of the world nor the world itself nor the body has any significance.
Nityananda is that principle which perceives the Self in everything.


One becomes exactly what one's mind dwells on intensely and with firm resolve.


Regresa al Ser interior y conoce tu propio secreto.
El Universo está dentro de ti y tú estás dentro del Universo.
El Ser interior es el Uno danzando en todo, el Uno que está aquí y el Uno que está allí.


Meditate on your Self.
Kneel to your Self.
Remember your Self.
Whatever is yours is in you.


In Pranayama, Pooraka is drawing up the breath, Kumbhaka is retaining the breath, Rechaka is exhaling the breath. These three kinds of breath occur within. Nothing is from outside. While the practice is going on, Prana will move only in one nerve [sushumna], and we then feel the internal joy. Who can describe this Brahmananda? The outside world will be forgotten. We will then be in the world beyond.


On a mango tree, not all fruits grow simultaneously and ripen at the same time. First, we have tender fruit; by and by, the fruit ripens. Finally, the ripe fruit is edible. So, also, men must be like mangoes. In every respect, we must cultivate peace.


However wicked a man may be, his wickedness may be changed into goodness within five minutes. So long as there are clouds, the sun's rays are not visible. As soon as the clouds scatter in all directions, the sun becomes visible. OM, the tower of peace! OM, the form of peace! OM! Salutation to OMKAR!


Where these three nerves meet is the heart space. As we continue practicing yoga, the Bindu-sound (like that of harmonium, or a drum or a fiddle, the ten sounds) is heard in the head. This sound is one, indivisible.


If you have Manas, [are living in the mind], you want everything. If you do not have Manas, you do not want anything. If you have Manas, God becomes a separate being for you. When you have merged Manas in Budhi, God is not separate from you. All then appears as one. If you have desires, you want a separate God because God's help is necessary to accomplish your desires. Then the Manas goes after the various objects of the senses and causes doubt about various matters. Then one feels the necessity of an idol or image. Cause and effect appear to be two separate categories. Image worship is due to Maya or ignorance.


Various kinds of articles are brought to a fair. Similarly, peace should be practised in multiple ways. When we are in the midst of thousands of people, we should have a firm will. When you think (wrongly) that you are in the midst of thousands, the idea of duality arises in you. Just as an airplane moves without the help of the earth, so also, one must learn to act without the body's support. The pinnacle of belief, 'I am not this body,' should be firmly planted in the heart. After being in the sun for a long time, feeling tired, a traveler seeks the shelter of the shade of a tree on a hillside and forgets his fatigue. So too, those whose minds are absorbed in search of God forget all their worldly anxieties. Just as in the shade one forgets the sun's heat, the sense of ego is forgotten by the absorption in God. When we are inside the house, we do not want an umbrella; we need an umbrella only when we go outside. Just as you do not want an umbrella inside the house, when you are in the Great House called God, you do not feel any necessity of worldly enjoyment (found in human dwellings). When a man shuts the door of a house, he sees only things inside the house. Let him open the door and come out; then he will see what is outside. Similarly, you must learn how to shut the doors of the 'five senses.' When the doors of a warehouse are locked, buying and selling cease. When the doors of the senses are shut, the difference between the external world and 'I' will vanish. Therefore, always be careful about the senses. Like a horse is controlled with the help of reins, you must control the senses by discrimination. Fix your attention like a nail on a wall. Budhi (intelligence) should be concentrated in the head. Your attention should always be above the neck, never below.
