Atman

  • “That, which remains active, even in your absence, even in the mind’s absence, even in knowledge’s absence, is Atman.”

 

  • “That, which you know, without being taught, is the Atman.”

 

  • “That, which is so intrinsic, so innate, that man has neither made it, nor can man comprehend it, is the Atman.”

 

  • “The Atman, mind you, is the foundation of that which sees the body take birth and die.”

 

  • “The Atman is that which is unchangeable.”

 

  • “The Atman, the Truth, is not affected by objects and experiences. All of them are happening within the Atman.”

 

  • “The Atman, the Truth, is not affected by objects and experiences. All of them are happening within the Atman.”

 

  • “The present means the unthinkable Atman.”

 

  • “Arjun represents the mind. Krishna represents the center, the “Atman”. The mind is lost as it always is.”

 

  • “Turiya is Atman itself, Truth itself, Shiva himself.”

 

  • “To know the Guru, is to know the Truth. To know the Guru, is no different than knowing the Atman, the Brahma absolutely.”

 

  • “You will not need to rely upon knowledge when you are relying upon the absolute. You can call that absolute as Atman, the Self, the Brahman, or God, doesn’t matter, or you may not use any name at all. Faith is not contingent upon a name. You need not even specify what is it that you have faith on, because faith really is on nothing. Faith is just Faith.”

 

  • “On Shiva Sutra: Atman is the mother of mind; Awareness is the mother of consciousness.”

 

  • “The Atman has no future, the Atman has no time but you have time, so you must respect time. The Atman has no goal but you must know your goal.”

 

  • “You become goal-less only when you become identified and identical with the Atman; only then you have a right to say that I have no goal in life. Till the time you are not identical with the Atman, till the time you are identified with your body and mind, you indeed do have a goal and what is that goal? To be ‘dis-identified’. That is the goal.”
