    An offering to you all
    (the product of a sleepless night)

    Light to Darkness or Darkness to Light

    i will be a good disciple
    i will be a good disciple
    i will be a good disciple
    i will be a good disciple
    i will be a good disciple

    i do not see black
    i do not see black
    i do not see black
    i do not see black
    i do not see black

    there is only satsang in my mind
    there is only satsang in my mind
    there is only satsang in my mind
    there is only satsang in my mind
    there is only satsang in my mind

    love and light
    love and light
    love and light
    love and light
    love and light

    Hey Sun - where the f... are you going just when i need you most?
    Why are you setting now?
    I was just told by TeacherJi you would be here forever,
    ever shining, luminous and bright.
    How dare you leave me?
    Me!

    And with that the sun bowed tenderly beneath the horizon
    and a blanket of darkness comforted the creatures of the world,
    that they may rest
    that they may restore
    that they may renew
    and be fresh.

    can anybody recomend me a book about someone who had got enlightened, but had to overcome real obsticles from everyday life, like all we do, strugle with instincts, society etc. I am reading now Yogananda's Autobiografy, but it is really boaring to read about someone who was born as a saint and doesn't write anything usefull for everyday people on the path to spirituality. I have to apologize for my english again, but i doing my best...

    I am not so sure if something like "enlightenment" really exists, but I found the life and teachings of Ramana Maharshi quite impressing.

    "Is it possible to see that whatever we do we are in a trap? Anything that the mind creates is a trap. When there is this inner awakening then we will profit by scriptures and lectures...

    Unless you stop blaming others, including yourself, for the state you are in, you are not awake. When you are walking through the tunnel you see the light in front of you and the light behind you. Even so, when you are in darkness you think you see some light in the past or in the future. It is an absurd passtime.

    Therefore, a major qualification for the student of yoga is to realise that no one is responsible for the state you are in. No one can bring about a spiritual awakening in you. Someone can help, anyone can help, but you have to do it. This spiritual awakening is brought about by life itself, but even to be awakened by life, a certain grace and a certain alertness is needed.

    Like Pavitra said, it's probably better to cancel the whole YiDL organization. If swAmi leaves or dies, his followers will probably start following someone else in the organization. Some people just like to follow, they are used to it. Brian, a contemporary of Jesus, experienced this already 2000 years ago.

    Reply to @truthseeker: I'm not the messiah! - "...I say you are Lord and I should know, I followed a few...";)))

    (whoever wants to believe will believe regardless of lie/truth of the thing)

    Life of Brian is brilliant! though it is all a caricature of the life of Jesus, yet still it conveys many truths - and the main one is: without the story (the symbolic) and without the Word there's no Reality nor religion...

    and who said that stories aren't sometimes arbitrarily picked out of the pocket and subsequently becoming the eternal truth... (well, Life of Brian shows that well, every gesture can become a potential divine sign - a shoe, a bowl, nail clipper etc.;)

    without the Symbolic and the meaning we give to the story, there is no truth at all; our lives are structured around the stories and religious stories are most delicious...the most tempting is when you get on the plate: the promise of eternal life and immortality of the soul + sitting next to the Father in Heaven...

    Sad news for swAmi: his mother has died today. You can find the news on the YiDL-website. She will be cremated tomorrow at 11 am Indian time. Out of respect and compassion for swAmi I will not write any critical posts in this forum till then.
