March 1 Wednesday


All beings desire happiness always, happiness without a tinge of sorrow. At the same time everybody loves himself best. The cause for love is only happiness. So that happiness must lie within oneself.


March 2 Thursday 

That happiness is daily experienced by everyone in sleep when there is no mind. To attain that natural happiness one must know oneself. For that self enquiry,Who am I ? Is the chief means.


March 3 Friday 

There is no happiness in worldly objects. Because of our ignorance we imagine we derive happiness from them.


March 4 Saturday

 Everyone desires to sleep soundly. The conclusion therefore is that happiness is inherent in man and not due to external causes.


March 5 Sunday

Contact with Jnanis is good. They will work through silence.


March 6 Monday

 A guru is not the physical form . Hence his contact remains even after the physical form of the Guru vanishes.


March 7 Tuesday

 No one can be out of sight of the Supreme Presence. Since you identify one body with Bhagavan and another body with yourself, you find two separate entities and speak of going away from here.


 March 8 Wednesday

No thought will go in vain. Every thought will produce its effect sometime or other.


 March 9 Thursday

 Some have maintained that the body can be made immortal and they give recipes, medical or other for perfecting this body and making it defy death. But all people, after writing long treatises on the indestructibility of the body and keep it alive for ever, pass away one day


March 10 Friday

Name of god and god are not different.


March 11 Saturday

 In the name Rama , Ra stands for the self and ma for the ego. As one goes on repeating Rama, Rama, the ma disappears, getting merged in the Ra and then Ra alone remains . In that state there is no conscious effort at dhyana, but dhyana is always there, for dhyanais our real nature.


March 12 Sunday 

Avoid desire and aversion. Do not engage the mind much in the affairs of the world. As far as possible do not get entangled in the affairs of others. Giving to others is is really giving to oneself. Of one knows this truth, would one ever remain without giving?


March 13 Monday

If ego rises, all will rise. If ego merges, all will merge. The more we are humble, the better it is for us.


March 14 Tuesday

 The best and most potent diksha ( initiation) is by silence, which was practised by Lord Dakshinamurti. Those y touch, look, etc., are of a lower order. Mouna can change all hearts.


March 15 Wednesday

 The sun illumines the universe,whereas the Sun of Arunachalais so dazzling, that in It the universe is not seen; there remains only an unbroken brilliance.


 March 16 Thursday

 It is not true that birth as a man necessarily the highest, that one must attain Self Realizatdion while only being a man. Even an animal cal attain Self Realisation.


March 17 Friday

 There is no need for anyone to start reforming the country or the nation before reforming himself. Ea h man’s first duty is to realise his true nature. If after doing this he feels like reforming the country or nation, by all means let him take up such reform.


March 18 Saturday

 Swami Ram Tirtha advertised: Wanter Reformers- but reformers who will reform themselves first.


March 19 Sunday

 No two persons in the world can be alike or can act alike. External differences are bound to persist, however hard we may try to eliminate them. The only solution is for each man to realise his True Nature .


March 20 Monday

From silence came thought, from thought the ego, from ego speech. So, if speech is effective, how much more so must be it’s source?


March 21 Tuesday

Karpura arathi is symbolic of burning away the mind by the light of illumination. Vibhuti is Siva/ Absolute Being and Kumkum is Sakti/ consciousness.


March 22 Wednesday

 If we concentrate on any thought and go to sleep in that state, immediately on waking up the same thought will continue in our minds. People who are given chloroform are asked to count one, two etc., A man who goes under after saying six, , for instance, will, when he comes round again, start saying seven, eight etc.


March 23 Thursday

 No want is the greatest bliss. It can be realised only by experience. Even an emperor is so much for a man with no wants.


 March 24 Friday 

God illumines the mind and shines within it. One cannot know God by means of the mind. One can but turn the mind inwards and merge it in God.


March 25 Saturday

 For all thoughts the source is the I thought. The mind will merge only by Self enquiry. Who am I ? The thought Who am I ?will destroy all other thoughts and finally kill itself also.


March 26 Sunday

 What is Gayatri ? It really means

Let me concentrate on That which illumines all.


March 27 Monday

 I have not said that Guru is not necessary. But a Guru need not always be in human form.

One can go to another Guru after one’s Guru passes away. But after all ,Gurus are one, as none of them are the form. Mental contact is always  the best.


March 28 Tuesday

A Jnani has attained liberation/ Mukti even while alive, hee and now. I is immaterial to Him as to how, where and when he leave the body. Some Jnanis may appear to suffer, others may be in Samadhi, some others may disappear from sight before death. But that makes no difference to their Jnana.


March 29 Wednesday

Sat sangh means association with Sat or Reality. One who knows or has realised Sat is also regarded as Sat. such association is absolutely necessary for all. Shankara has said,

In all the three worlds there is  no boat like Sat sangh to carry one safely across the ocean of births and deaths.


March 30 Thursday

 In the centre of the cavity of the heart, the sole Brahman shines by itself as the Atman (Self) in the feeling of I, I. Reach the Heart by diving within yourself , by control of breath or with thought concentrated on the quest of the self. You will thus get fixed in the Self.


 March 31 Friday 

Free will and destiny are ever existent. Destiny is the result of past concerns the body.  Let the body act as may suit it.  Why are you concerned about it? Why do you pay attention to it? Freewill and setiny last as long as the body lasts. But Jnana transcends both.
