Ramana Bhaskara


Discourse of Sadguru Sri Nannagaru at At Sri Nannagaru Ashram

Arunachala, 29th May 2003


Mind is like a bubble. In the bubble also there is water. If you don’t see the form in the bubble, see the water, then there is no need for sadhana. There is water in the tank, lake, river and the sea. If you forget the form, what exists everywhere is water only. Associating with form creates problems and misery so you should leave it aside. If you get knowledge then the whole of creation will appear in your heart. Except consciousness nothing else will be seen.

Krishna says, ‘One who sees everyone in me and sees me in everyone, he has the real sight.’ This real sight is the result of good karma accrued over numerous lifetimes. We all have a thief’s sight (i.e., unreal sight). The one with real sight will see truth, even if the eyes are open or closed, whereas we see untruth whether or not we close or open our eyes. For those with real sight, it doesn’t matter even if death comes to the body - there is no benefit or any loss by its death!

Worldly people want things of the world. Devotees choose God. In the Mahabharata during the Kurukshetra war, Lord Krishna granted to both Arjuna and Duryodhana that they could choose either between Him on one side and His warriors on the other side. Arjuna chose Krishna whereas Duryodhana chose his warriors. Swami Vivekananda said Krishna was the charioteer for Arjuna. If we choose and believe then the Lord will also be our charioteer.

Objectless awareness – Awareness is there but the object isn’t there. When there is no object there won’t be any attraction. It is like the hare’s horn. You may ask, ‘Is it thick or thin?’ but if there is no horn itself, where is the question of thick or thin?
