- *********forwarding this from Petros:
Attending satsang with Ammachi the other day in Burbank I found myself
preferring to leave the ballroom and sit in the hotel vestibule just
outside, deep in meditation. Rather than listening to disciples'
testimonies and Ammachi's public sermon I somehow found it more enriching to simply
meditate on the other side of the wall in relative solitude. I was able
to enter into a profound meditative state thanks to her proximity, without
actually seeing or hearing her directly. It has often been said that
many public gurus offer a fairly mundane verbal message for the public, while
offering more subtle blessings for those prepared to receive them, and
this seemed to be an instance of this effect. Incidentally, I also saw
Bhagavan Das in attendence and he too was clearly in a fairly strong meditative
state in Ammachi's presence.

How lovely a response, Judi. That reminds of a story,where a seeker comes to Ramana and says he wants nothing else but to reach nirvana. Ramana replies that to want nothing else already is nirvana.Love,GloriaFor some, most, life is enough, for others, the few, only God can
The important thing is to know which category you fall in and go with
that and be happy.*****
And the ones for whom only God can satisfy, don't have to think
twice about answering that question if that helps. Their hands
immediately go up, they know exactly who they are.
It's for the lovers of God where my interests lie.
There are those among you who desire this world and there are those
among you who desire the world to come. But where is He who desires God?
"Serenely radiance illumines the whole universe;
The ignorant, the wise, all dwell in one abode.
When no thought arises, One is revealed;
If the six sense organs move just a little,
it is covered by clouds.
Cutting off ignorance causes it to grow;
Looking for truth is of no avail.
Living at one with things of the world creates no problem;
Nirvana and life-and-death are like flowers of air".
