Instant Enlightenment – Is it a Myth?

Growing up, I feel that I was always told that we can realize God in an instant, and that realizing God is the same as being enlightened or self-realized. Although, I believed this when I was growing up, when I did receive the Knowledge that was meant to give me this instant enlightenment, I didn’tContinue reading “Instant Enlightenment – Is it a Myth?”

J Krishnamurti – A Biography by Pupul Jayakar

Last night, I finished reading J. Krishnamurti: A Biography by Pupul Jayakar and I really enjoyed the great thoughts of this phenomenal mystic. I was introduced to Jiddu Krishnamurti (JK) through Osho, who deeply respected JK and I feel Osho propagated JK’s teachings in his own wonderful way too. However, it was my late PritamContinue reading “J Krishnamurti – A Biography by Pupul Jayakar”

A Traveling Thought

The presence of a thought appeared this morning, Fresh and crisp as if it was ironed out completely, I wonder how this thought came into my psyche, When the thought went away, I was in mourning. This thought appeared initially dusty and worn, As if lying somewhere completely old and withdrawn, It was from theContinue reading “A Traveling Thought”

Is your Teacher the Best?

Since yesterday’s post on Critical Spirituality had a lot to digest, I thought it would be nice to share this Zen joke that I read on Psychology Today. One Zen student said, “My teacher is the best.

Approaching the Great Teacher

Earlier in the morning I was reading a book on J Krishnamurti and came across some beautiful lines: Awake, arise, having approached the great teacher, learn. The road is difficult, the crossing is as the sharp edge of a razor. Katha Upanishad III These words had an impact this morning. Some of us are fortunate toContinue reading “Approaching the Great Teacher”

There was once a king, who heard the sweet song of a bird. A bird that was able to fly to different branches of different trees, roam in the clear blue sky or thunderous showers.

Post 97 – The Paradigm of Truth

Confidence is something that grows with time. When we look at the situation we are in, we think of many faults and we think of how we do not deserve things, we have an inner hierarchy and we lose out on living in each moment. For example, we all may believe in a higher being,Continue reading “Post 97 – The Paradigm of Truth”

Post 95 – Knowing is the Only Way!

Hi readers! Hope you are well. I had a thought, can I call it a thought or shall I say revelation? Hear this out: ‘If you know the Truth then you don’t know. You can only be in knowing of the Truth.’ I probably could say the last sentence with greater clarity but I shallContinue reading “Post 95 – Knowing is the Only Way!”
