Let all the great lecturers of the age come , let Christ or GOD Itself come and lecture , but lectures from others will be of no avail unless you are prepared to lecture to yourself .
One alone can raise oneself or make progress who lectures to oneself .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00301 | RAMA राम
The highest gift you can confer on a person is to offer knowledge .
You may feed a person today ; one will be just as hungry tomorrow . Teach the person an art , you enable one to earn a living all one's life .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00302 | RAMA राम
The sacred Scriptures of all the worlds should be taken in the same spirit as we study Chemistry , holding our own experience for ultimate authority .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00303 | RAMA राम
Blessed are those who do not read newspapers , for they shall see Nature and through Nature , GOD .

Work in the spirit of an unaffected witness , free from all entanglements . Remain immune .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00305 | RAMA राम
Wherever you may be , work in the position of a giver and never in the position of a beggar , so that your work may be universal work , and not personal in the least .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00306 | RAMA राम
Rama speaks the truth . Believe it .
All the objects of the world are unreal .
GOD alone is Real .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00307 | RAMA राम
You must feel Shivoham from the very core of your heart so that it may consume , like a burning flame , all your inferiority complex .
If this is done , all your body consciousness , narrow-mindedness , fear , sorrow and sufferings will be destroyed . They will have no ground to germinate .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00308 | RAMA राम
One , who knows this secret of oneness with All , becomes fearless and generosity incarnate .
One becomes the source of power , strength and spiritual holiness .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00309 | RAMA राम
You cannot have one-pointed concentration so long as you cherish one worldly hope or the other in your heart .
Only that one can have peace whose mind is not distracted by any thought of duty or want .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00310 | RAMA राम
These desires will not leave you of their own .
You will have to get rid of them .
Therefore , it is very necessary for you
to give up all hopes and expectations .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00311 | RAMA राम
You have to be lost in GOD-ecstasy .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00312 | RAMA राम
Let the believers in dualism and non-dualism quarrel in heated discussions , because , at this egotistic stage , it may not be wholly improper to have such an intellectual analysis and scrutiny .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00313 | RAMA राम
When we go deeper than the intellectual level and when the subjective mind or the ganglionic consciousness is enlightened , all the differences are smoothly ironed out .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00314 | RAMA राम
So long as one does not realise GOD from one's innermost conscience , one will never be able to enjoy Upasana , Jyan , or understand the interpretation of the Vedas or the Upanishads .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00315 | RAMA राम
Reality cannot be the object of perception or thought .
Mind and speech turn back from it in dismay .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00316 | RAMA राम
What are you ?
Infinite and immaculate ,
Immortal Self of all ,
Is your Self .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00317 | RAMA राम
Any philosophy which does not explain all the facts in nature is no philosophy .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00318 | RAMA राम
You may gain realisation this moment .
Get rid of attachment and at the same time
shake off all hatred and jealousy .

RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00322 | RAMA राम
Divinity ! Respect your Self ,
and everybody will respect you .

Whoever comes to you , receive one as GOD , and at the same time do not look down upon yourself .
If you are in jail today , you may be glorified tomorrow .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00324 | RAMA राम
Whoever comes to you , receive one as GOD
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00325 | RAMA राम
Sit firmly on the throne of renunciation , wear the pearls of dispassion , and put on the crown of Divine Knowledge .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00326 | RAMA राम
That prayer must be heard in which our selfishness is so little as to be the work of GOD Itself .
And , at the time of prayer , the mind should be full of ecstasy and self-absorption .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00327 | RAMA राम
Every page of Vedas ( Upanishad ) supports the theory of non-duality .
When this principle is quite correct in theory , nay , it is Truth itself , it must be correct in practice as well .
In practice , this principle of unity is expressed in the form of Love .
This Universal Unity , which acts as the guiding light in our spiritual life , is in the form of Love Absolute in practice . It can never be wrong .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00328 | RAMA राम
Another person put this question to Rama , " Do you believe in GOD ? "
Rama says , " I know GOD . "
We believe in a thing we do not know , we believe in a thing which is simply forced on us , we believe in a thing which is not known to us .
To believe in GOD , what does that mean ? What do you know of GOD ?
" I know GOD . I am GOD , I am GOD . "
Then the person says , " GOD is within you " .
Rama says the body and the world are within GOD .
I am GOD — that makes the whole difference .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00329 | RAMA राम
Unless we totally destroy our attachment and desire for the worldly objects in the fire of sacred knowledge of :
Sarvam Khalvidam Brahma ( the entire universe is Brahma or GOD ) ,
we cannot enter the sovereignty of Heaven or attain GODhood .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00330 | RAMA राम
The tornado of GOD-concentration should be so powerful that any other idea of the world may be swept away .
I am a tornado of highest magnitude , I am a wonderful sight .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00331 | RAMA राम
Rama tells you in every possible way
that only GOD exists and not the world .
If the things of the world are there ,
they are only the existence of GOD .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00332 | RAMA राम
They are really blessed who lose their all ,
the heart , mind and everything to GOD ,
who is the Master-Thief of all the thieves .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00333 | RAMA राम
You must not consider this world to be real .
Merge this idea into Brahma because
Brahma alone is real and all else is unreal .
Then only you can be free from worry , anxiety or anguish .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00334 | RAMA राम
At the time of meditation , all sorts of thoughts creep in the mind , thoughts of food , nourishment , insult , love , hatred , etc , connected with our life .
But one does not understand that these thoughts are not to be entertained .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00335 | RAMA राम
The only thought should be about GOD and GOD alone .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00336 | RAMA राम
When GOD is encamped in your heart ,
all desires will be automatically fulfilled .
When there is nothing but Atma , the mind too ,
has got to be absorbed in Atma itself .
Where else can the poor thing go ?
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00337 | RAMA राम
Sleep throws humans on the ground and teaches them a lesson every time that there is no reality in this world and that Atma (GOD) alone is real .
In sleep , since the world is lost , it cannot be real or everlasting .
Though unconsciously , we are made to realise in sleep that there remains ultimately nothing , but the only reality , Atma or GOD .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00338 | RAMA राम
Even unconsciously , one is refreshed and gets a lot of energy when one is in the deep sleep state .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00339 | RAMA राम
As such , one must feel much more refreshed and blessed with immeasurable power and energy , when one is consciously merged in Upasana and meditation .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00340 | RAMA राम
As a matter of fact , good or bad thoughts and ideas are drawn towards us , according to the condition of our own mind .
There will be no end to it , if we continue to reflect on the mental state of others . There is no use trying to control others .
I am the Mind of all the minds and I am the Intellect of all the intellects .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00341 | RAMA राम
There is such a continuity of inner unity that when I purify myself , I find every one else to be purified .
You do not try this direct method ( to realise yourself to be Brahma ) but , instead , you try an indirect method ( of reforming others ) .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00342 | RAMA राम
There is only one disease in this world and also only one remedy for it .
The conviction of the perverted point of view , not only in thought but also in action that :
GOD is unreal and that the world is real , is the root cause of this trouble or that .
And , the remedy of all such miseries lies in destroying the body and mind consciousness in the fire of GOD-realisation .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00343 | RAMA राम
When your worldly attachments overweigh as compared to your GODliness , when I and mine considerations suppress your feelings of peace and renunciation , you experience pain , suffering and frustration etc , to the same extent to which you neglect the practice of Truth .
GOD alone is real and all else is unreal .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00344 | RAMA राम
You are surely innocent and absolutely free from any fault , provided you consider yourself to be pure Universal Self , which you really are .
But , unfortunately , you do not hold on to the idea of being the Real Self .
How can you then claim to be innocent or faultless ?
You identify yourself with your limited body , mind and intellect , and then you call this little limited self to be sinless .
This ignorance is the root of all the sins .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00345 | RAMA राम
Upasana is to fix attention on the real and blissful aspect of the worldly objects , rising above their names and forms .
It is like paying attention to the meaning of the sentences , rising above the names and forms of the letters or the words .
It is to forget the names and forms of the worldly objects , as seen through our physical eyes , and to be absorbed in the Divine Vision .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00346 | RAMA राम
Upasana is the name of that state in which not only the tongue but every atom of the body is thrilled .
If , however , it does not produce such an effect , your Upasana is useless , even though you may close your eyes , stuff your nose , plug your ears , hold your tongue , sing , shout or do whatever you like .
Such an Upasana is like an uninspiring painting , howsoever beautiful it may be .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00347 | RAMA राम
Dear , listen ,
Vedanta is no cant ,
and this world is naught .
One perishes who feels it to be real .
GOD is the only reality .
Yes , yes , yes , yes , OM .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00348 | RAMA राम
You have only to put on the necklace of the pearls of dispassion , the crown of Divine Knowledge and then , sit on the Royal Throne of renunciation .
No desire can , then , dare approach you .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00349 | RAMA राम
In order that you may reach the Truth and realize the Divinity :
your dearest wants and desires will be pricked through and through , your dearest wants and attachments will have to be severed , all your favourite superstitions and prejudices will have to be wiped out , all your preconceived notions will have to be torn aside .
Free you will have to become of all the debasing and degrading yearnings .
Pure you will have to make yourself . Purity , purity .
Without paying the price , you cannot reach GOD , you cannot regain your own birthright .
Blessed are the pure in heart , for they shall see GOD .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00350 | RAMA राम
You are the Absolute Reality in which all this world ,
all the phenomena of the universe are mere waves or eddies .
Realize that and become absolutely free .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00351 | RAMA राम
Freedom from Law is secured by becoming the Law , that is , the Realization of Shivoham .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00352 | RAMA राम
I am Myself the Lover and also the Beloved .
Lover or Beloved ? Neither . I am Love personified .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00353 | RAMA राम
O , my dear ones , GOD is Truth and Truth is GOD .
Truth is Eternal . Truth is the only Reality .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00354 | RAMA राम
Bring the light in , and darkness never was .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00355 | RAMA राम
Why should you remember Rama and Krishna , When you are GOD yourself ? Have faith in your Self . You are GOD yourself .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00356 | RAMA राम
Why should you be afraid of calling yourself Rama or GOD ? This tongue is not yours . It is GOD's . Therefore speak out with GOD's tongue .
" I am Rama , I am the Real Self , I am the Emperor of this Universe , I am Omnipresent , I am the real Doer . "
This version is not from your side . It is from the side of the One whose tongue is this . It is a declaration of the same Being .
Therefore , you are nothing but Rama or Brahman .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00357 | RAMA राम
Heaven is within you , seek Happiness not in the objects of sense ; realize that Happiness is within yourself .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00358 | RAMA राम
Rama literally means the All-pervading , interpenetrating omnipresent , One without a second . You can call It Rama , GOD or Brahman .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00359 | RAMA राम
Let the seeds be sown , let the Truth be dinned and instilled into your ears , the seed once sown we need not bother much about it .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00360 | RAMA राम
I am determined to thunder out in your bosom my GODhead , your GODhead , and proclaim it through every deed and movement .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00361 | RAMA राम
When you see your own light in the sun and the moon , when you are fully convinced that in the past , present and future you alone are manifested in all beings , when you are above body , mind and intellect , and when you have fully identified yourself with the Universal Self , then alone may you be called a GOD-intoxicated Saint .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00362 | RAMA राम
Love or Tat Tvam Asi , wherever the eyes fall That Thou Art .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00363 | RAMA राम
True Purity is that where all beauty is absorbed in me and I feel and enjoy my spiritual oneness with all to such an extent that to talk or think of meeting any object sounds like a painful hint of separation .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00364 | RAMA राम
Religion is as universal and vitally connected with our being as the act of eating .
The successful atheist knows not the process of one's own digestion , as it were .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00365 | RAMA राम
One who has never loved can never realize GOD ; that is a fact .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00366 | RAMA राम
The last word of the Greek language is Omega which has the prominence of OM .
Also , in the English words , omnipresent , omniscient and omnipotent , the eminence of OM is distinct .
The presence of OM in these words is not just by chance .
It is on account of the word OM that these words give the indication of universalism .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00367 | RAMA राम
The mantram OM does not belong to any special language .
Thinking it to be a Sanskrit word and not belonging to any other language , do not reject it . It is the name of GOD .
This syllable comes to you from within , nobody teaches you this syllable . It comes to you at birth .
The child's cry resembles remarkably the sound Oom , Om , Aam , a perverted form of OM .
The word OM comes from within to every child .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00368 | RAMA राम
Now it is not the mere chant by the throat , it is something else also . While :
< : 1 : > the lips and the throat chant physically ,
< : 2 : > the mind chants it intellectually , and
< : 3 : > the heart chants it in a language of higher emotions .
Thus the threefold chant of this sacred syllable OM brings you to that unison and oneness with the All , the Light .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00369 | RAMA राम
You cannot depend upon any authority outside yourself , whether it be Krishna , Christ , or Buddha .
In order to know it , you must know it yourself . . .
A young person says , " My parent has a good stomach , and can digest my dinner for me . " Can the parent ? No , one must digest one's own dinner .
I bow to those great souls the world has known , but they cannot digest my food for me , that I must do for myself .
They cannot convince me of my ONENESS WITH GOD , I must do that for myself .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00370 | RAMA राम
It is through the Cosmic-Consciousness alone that we know the Truth .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00371 | RAMA राम
Sell not your liberty to Buddha , Jesus , Mohammed or Krishna .
All the dogmatic ideologies of the world have more or less of superstition , stamped on their face .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00372 | RAMA राम
So long as any trace of external obligation and categorical imperative Thou shalt and Thou shalt not is in play , there can be no room for spiritual growth of true purity .
All process of joining this Church or that , this Society or that Society , worshipping this Christ or that Krishna , this fetish or that , will avail nothing .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00373 | RAMA राम
Prayer does not mean repeating certain words .
Prayer means feeling and realizing Divinity .
There is no use believing in salvation by performing services .
As a rule , churches , temples , gatherings and meetings are different methods of prolonging the hypnotic world-sleep .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00374 | RAMA राम
A little dynamite from within destroys
the whole superstructure which held it .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00375 | RAMA राम
Let nothing be prized higher than GOD ,
nothing valued equally with GOD .
There is none nearer than GOD ,
none should be dearer than GOD , TRUTH ( LAW ) .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00376 | RAMA राम
Trample over the body , eat up this personality , grind , digest , and assimilate me , then and then alone you do justice to Rama .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00377 | RAMA राम
Jump into the Ocean of the Ineffable ,
throw away everything into it ,
cast off each and all , spare nothing .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00378 | RAMA राम
Slowly and resolutely as a fly cleans its legs of the honey in which it has been caught , so remove we must every particle of attachment to forms and personalities .
One after another the connections must be cut , the ties must snap , till the final concession in the form of death crowns all unwilling renunciations .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00379 | RAMA राम
Compliments , criticisms and diseases are equally fatal if we regard Self as subject to them .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00380 | RAMA राम
Blessed are those who do not read newspapers ,
for they shall see Nature and through Nature , GOD .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00381 | RAMA राम
Beware of worldly attachment and materiality . You cannot reach the Truth and also enjoy worldly pleasures .
The saying goes that if you enjoy the Truth , you will no longer be able to enjoy worldly pleasures .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00382 | RAMA राम
Enjoy worldly pleasures and Truth will elude your grasp , get ahead of you . Rama is telling you the Truth today .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00383 | RAMA राम
So many people come to Rama and say over and over again that they want realization . You may gain realization this moment .
Get rid of attachment and at the same time shake off all hatred and jealousy .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00384 | RAMA राम
What is jealousy what is hatred ? It is inverted attachment . When we hate somebody , it is because we are attached to something else .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00385 | RAMA राम
Here you will ask how you are to get rid of your children , siblings , and spouses , etc .
Well , this is your own lookout . The how and what way is your own lookout .
But the truth is , let TRUTH or GOD become your parent , let GOD or TRUTH become your parent , let GOD or TRUTH be to you your spouse ;
Let GOD or TRUTH be to you your grandparent , your teacher , your house , your property , your everything .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00386 | RAMA राम
Have all your attachments severed from every object , and concentrate yourself on one thing , the one fact , one truth , your divinity .
Immediately on the spot you gain realization .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00387 | RAMA राम
Proceed on the axioms that all are GODly and everyone must behave as GOD if only you behave as GOD toward them .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00388 | RAMA राम
Energy or matter , if any , is GOD .
The Law of preservation of matter and energy is essentially relative and its relative counter-formula would be :
" All change is purely change of form , it is not a change of the innermost nature of reality " .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00389 | RAMA राम
The reading of books and learning all knowledge is one thing ; and to acquire the Truth is another .
You may read all the sacred Scriptures and yet not know the Truth .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00390 | RAMA राम
The only wrong is to put this question : " Am I right ? "
Ownership is making a thing my own .
I make the whole World my own .
Owner of the Universe .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00391 | RAMA राम
As a solid is related to its own surfaces , so is the cosmic consciousness related to the ordinary consciousness .
As an ocean is related to its waves , so is the Cosmic Consciousness related to the world consciousness .
As hyperspace is supposed to be related to the other dimensions of space , so is the Jnana .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00392 | RAMA राम
True liberty is the accurate appreciation of Necessity .
I am that Necessity and being that Necessity am free .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00393 | RAMA राम
The feeling of purity brings such power and joy because it is an expression of Renunciation .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00394 | RAMA राम
After perception comes conception by naming .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00395 | RAMA राम
Attention — a priori Causation = Reaction ( subjective ) = objectifying . Thing = Think .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00396 | RAMA राम
Things are thinks and thinks = words .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00397 | RAMA राम
Keep in Self = Resist not Evil , but overcome it by Love than which there is no higher force .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00398 | RAMA राम
When you talk to the limited centre of ego , etc , that responds .
When you address GOD , response will come from there .
RAMABITES | PART 04 | BITE00399 | RAMA राम
O Truth , I Love Thee ; O Love , I am True to Thee .
