Buddha: - There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth: not going all the way... and not starting
Everyone’s inner work is on. Until a man is ripe to receive Self-knowledge, he will not be able to understand what I am saying.
Even they may find it difficult in the first as they go on reading and reflecting repeatedly the post their subconscious will start dropping the dualistic egocentric knowledge and start accepting the Soul-centric Self-knowledge or Brahma Gnana or Atma Gnana.
Grasping the truth depends on the spiritual maturity of the seeker. My mission is sharing the knowledge by inspires the serious and sincere seekers of truth and divert their attention towards the inward reality.
As their urge is in the seed level and As they go on reading the words of wisdom it will start growing.
“It takes time for the seeker to gain the perfect understanding of ‘what is truth’ and ‘’what is untruth’.
“It takes time for the seeker to gain the perfect understanding of ‘what is truth’ and ‘’what is untruth’. It takes time for the Soul, the innermost Self to wake up from the sleep of ignorance, and it takes time for one realizes the truth, which is beyond the form, time and space.
The seeker must have: ~
An intense urge to realize the truth, which is beyond the form, time and space
Receptive to receive the truth
Sharpness to grasp the truth
Courage to accept the truth and reject the untruth
Ready to reflect the truth repeatedly
Drop all the accumulated knowledge
All the above things are very much necessary to tread the Atmic path. The Guru is needed only in religious and yogic paths. In Atmic path, there is no need for the Guru. There is no need to stick to any Guru or any teaching.
A Gnani will never accept himself as Guru nor does he claim himself as a Gnani. One who accepts himself as Guru does not know the truth. When one inquires into the nature of the mind than the truth will start revealing on its own.
That is why Swami Vivekananda said:~ “You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.”
Buddha said:~ Do not believe a spiritual teaching just because:-
1. It is repeatedly recited
2. It is written in a scripture
3. It was handed from Guru to disciple
4. Everyone around you believes it
5. It has supernatural qualities
6. It fits my beliefs anyway
7. It sounds rational to me
8. It is taught by a respectable person
9. It was said to be the truth by the teacher
10. One must defend it or fight for it.
However, only when it agrees with your experience and reason, and when it is conducive to the good and gain of oneself and all others, then one should accept the teachings, and live up to them."
