OTHERS QUOTES

From ~~~ Maharshi’s Gospel, B.II, Ch.II


D:

Does knowing myself imply knowing God?


M:

Yes, God is within you.


D:

Then, what stands in the way of my knowing myself

or God?


M:

Your wandering mind and perverted ways.


D:

I am a weak creature. But why does not the superior

power of the Lord within remove the obstacles?


M:

Yes, He will, if you have the aspiration.


D:

Why should He not create the aspiration in me?


M:

Then surrender yourself.


D:

If I surrender myself, is no prayer to God necessary?


M:

Surrender itself is a mighty prayer.


D:

But is it not necessary to understand His nature

before one surrenders oneself?


M:

If you believe that God will do for you all the things

you want Him to do, then surrender yourself to

Him. Otherwise let God alone and know yourself.


D:

Has God or the Guru any solicitude for me?


M:

If you seek either — they are not really two but one

and identical — rest assured that they are seeking

you with a solicitude greater than you can ever

imagine.


D:

Jesus gave the parable of the lost coin, wherein the

woman searches for it till it is found.


M:

Yes, that aptly represents the truth that God or the

Guru is always in search of the earnest seeker. Were the

coin a dud piece, the woman would not have made

that long search. Do you see what it means? The seeker

must qualify himself through devotion etc.


D:

But one may not be quite sure of God’s Grace.


M:

If the unripe mind does not feel His Grace, it does

not mean that God’s Grace is absent, for it would

imply that God is at times not gracious, that is,

ceases to be God.


D:

Is that the same as the saying of Christ, “According

to thy faith be it done unto thee”.


M:

Quite so.
