Guru Gita Glimpses ☼

Delight and joy may be had, even by steps and stages somehow. Meditation goes toward it. There is very proficient meditation, somehow proficient meditation, meditation at large, little proficient meditation and deranging meditation: Consider a gliding scale between very proficient and harmful meditations.

1. Go for yogic liberation

Beyond one's Self there is nothing to experience. [Cf. v. 37]

The One (God) is eternal (Nitya). [Cf. v. 48]

The Lord is the size of a thumb at the heart. [Cf. v. 70] (2)

Spontaneity is without sound. [Cf. v. 71]

2. Many religions tell of a great delight

Hamsa is the subtle state of tranquillity itself. [Cf. v. 89; 11; v74]

Give just the cream teachings. ⚶ and do not lie [Cf. v. 82; 60 (4)]

The Self is soundless spontaneity. ⚶ The spontaneous state may not be explainable. [Cf. v. 71; 71]

3. The Self-Well remains on high

"If the seeker can practice Kriya just three times being perfectly detached, he can attain liberation". [V. 91]

One meditates well and absolute Knowledge is gained, and also being unfettered. [Cf. v. 55]

It is a boon to gain both dharma (righteousness), artha (wealth here and beyond), kama (lust, joy), and moksha (freedom). [Cf. v. 92]


Attune yourself to the four life goals, and get more joy thereby. At least you can try.
