God is in heart !(Short Message)

Body should be fit and mind should be peaceful. Daily you do contemplate and question yourself, For what purpose are we using the body and the mind too? From morning till night only for enjoyments or for the thinking of God, self, or for the quest of God? We believe that God exists only in idols or temples. But God is the indweller in your Heart and exists in your Heart there, the moment you realize it, then in your last breath you will become one with God.

"Guru Powrnami - 2009"

Bhagavan says God, Guru and the Self are one and the same. We need not see any difference; there is only one thing, and that is the absolute Truth. We may call the absolute Truth as God, the Self or Guru.

The Acharya, Guru, Saint blesses you here itself, 90% of your work is done here itself, only 10% you need to practice at home make effort, Try, practice, Respect the Guru, Acharya, otherwise Guru's teaching s ( nectar) will not enter into your Heart.

For the Guru two qualifications are essential, he has to have a direct perception of the Truth and he has to be in the position to explain the Truth - these are the two main qualifications of the Guru. We cannot buy this sorrow-less state in the market; the sorrow-less state will only come by the Grace of the Guru.

Sri Bhagavan often said, "God, Guru and Self are one and the same", and to Him Arunachala was all three of these.

Guru is He who possesses the supreme power to make any soul who comes to Him merge into Self, the knowledge beyond all speech. The Guru works in many ways to make the disciple merge into Self. "He gives a push from ‘without’ and exerts a pull from ‘within’, so that you may be fixed in the Centre", says Sri Bhagavan in Maharshi’s Gospel, p.36.

Praise and Self Praise !(Short Message)

Praise and self-praise is the result of KAMA (Desire). It brings restlessness. Love brings peace. A Holy Name (Anyone Rama, Krishna, Shiva etc.,) should not be remembered now and then but, should be chanted every moment and should get mixed into your blood like the soaked powder gets mixed into the water. Body should be fit and mind should be peaceful. - Nanna

"Nanna Graceful words about Buddha"

One who has complete (perfect) love is a jnani and the one who doesn’t have that is not a jnani and cannot become one.

Question: Nannagaru! Bless me to have sadhana that is without forgetfulness.
Answer:The mind without surrender does not get subdued. Therefore, be it rain or earthquakes, all of these are according to God's Plan.

The mind becomes external due to close friendships and enmities. There is nothing outside - everything that exists is inside. Though there is nothing outside, it seems like there is because of our vasanas (innate tendencies coming from past births) and our senses. After we get a thought, we remember about our children and our grandchildren. Unless that thought stops, jnana won't come. After a thought comes, the form is seen. If one doesn’t observe what is happening inside, though ten million births are taken, jnana won't come.

Buddha was born under a tree, he gained jnana under a tree, he taught under a tree and he left his body under a tree. For that reason, he liked trees very much. Buddha ate only once in a day. He once said, that the one who eats once (a day) is a yogi, the one who eats twice is a bhogi, and the one who eats three times is a rogi.

Anand was Buddha’s younger stepbrother. One time he told Buddha, ‘Though I have done so much sadhana in your presence, the thought that you are my elder brother does not leave me.’

Then Buddha said, ‘You won't attain jnana unless that thought goes.’

Anand asked Buddha, ‘If you die where should the cremation be done?

Buddha quickly said, ‘Anand, this is a place (village) isn't it? There will be a cremation ground here, isn't it? If anyone dies in this village, they will burn the body there, won't they! Let the cremation be done there. It isn’t even necessary to remember the spot where Buddha died.’

Nevertheless, after Buddha died, twelve kings came and apportioned Buddha’s ash into twelve parts. They then each took one part to their kingdoms and built twelve pillars to house the ashes in.

When Buddha came to his house for bhiksha, his father Suddhodhana felt bad.

Then Buddha told his father, ‘You feel bad because I am asking for alms and I feel bad because your ignorance hasn’t left.’

He did not have any desire to be king or even have the thought of who would rule the kingdom after him. If there are no desires, there will not be sorrow. If one searches inside for the reason of that sorrow, it goes. But because we don’t do that, we just go about hanging onto trees and snake hills.

It is not enough just to be good. There should also be intelligence.

* It is difficult for a big, businessman who sold flowers in one place to thereafter sell wood in the same place. Similarly, the Buddha had to return to the place as a beggar in which he used to be King.
