VEDANTIC DIRECTIONS | IWGR III | LETTERS | RAMA राम

|| < : 3 VEDANTIC DIRECTIONS : > ||

( 1 ) Vedantic Religion may be summed up in the single commandment :

Keep yourself perfectly happy and at rest , no matter what happens — sickness , death , hunger , calumny, or anything .

Be cheerful and at peace on the ground of your GODhood to which thou shalt ever be True .

( 2 ) The world — its inmates , relations , and all are vanishing quantities if you please to assert the majesty of your real Self .

Inspect, observe , and watch or do anything ; but do all that in the light of your True Self , that is to say , forget not that your Self is above all that and beyond all want .

You really require nothing . Why should you feel a desire for anything ? Do your work with the grace of a Universal Ruler , for pleasure , fun , or mere amusement’s sake .

Never , never feel that you want anything .

( 3 ) When you live these principles of Vedanta , spontaneously will the sweet aroma of Truth proceed in all directions from you .

Before falling asleep — when the eyes begin to close — every night or noon make a firm resolve in your mind to find yourself an embodiment of Vedantic Truth on waking up .

When you wake up , before doing anything else just bring to your mind vividly the determination dwelt upon before falling asleep .

Whenever you can , just chant or hum to yourself OM .

This way like a true , genuine Champa you will be shedding delicious fragrance and charming glory all around you all the time .


[ Excerpt 1903 Letter to a devotee Rama named Champa ]
