      Hello,

      Honestly, I dont feel that being recognized for your renuciation has
      anything to do with it. What of the dudes that go into the forest,
      and are never helped. I have heard of one renuciate, who has rich
      family in toronto, but spends his time on the streets of calgary. He
      seemed to me, to be just like any other renuciate you might meet in
      india.

      Although I have found that eating and sleeping with homeless addicts
      is not conducive to sadhana, I do not think it would make it
      impossible. Who knows how many people renounce in north america.
      For as you say, who would be here to revere them. They would go
      unnoticed.

      I know I was not steadfast eneogh to be a renunciate here in
      calgary. But that may be because of my former relation to the
      underground.

      Anyways, much love to you, and thank you for your time.
      I salute you.

      Namaste
      Om Namah Shivaya

                    And sometimes a pun
                    is just a pun.

                      Hello,

                      1.  If you were to get a splinter in your foot, do you remove it?  Or
                      do you realize there is no foot, no splinter, no pain.
                       
                      There is none.
                       
                      And yet a splinter may be removed.
                       
                      Or remains embedded.
                       
                       
                       
                       

                      Ramana sat to close to the fire once and severely burnt his legs.
                       
                      Ramana did not.
                      Yes the psycho-somatic organism which maybe labeled "Ramana", Buddha", "George W Bush/Osama Ben laden".......
                       
                      ......so long such an organism is "alive"..........if it sits on a hot stove, .......the organism will rapidly ascend.
                       
                       



                      2.  I am told you non-dual types believe in nothing.
                       
                       
                      Not even that nothing.
                       
                      And there is no non-dual types.
                       
                      Or to put it in another manner........there is not a whit difference between a non-dual type and a dual-type.
                       
                       
                       
                       
                       Do you believe in yourself?
                       
                       
                      What is this "yourself"?
                       
                       
                       
                       
                        If you only accept your awareness, do you accept mine? 
                       
                       
                      There is no "your" or "my" awareness.
                       
                       

                      If you accept mine, you must accept God.  That in which we live, move
                      and have our being. Qualified non-dualism.
                       
                      Aceept whatever rocks.
                       
                      Reject whatever rocks

                      3.  Do you accept qualified non-dualism?  Or do you only practice non-
                      dualsim?
                       
                       
                      What is qualified non-dualism?

                        If so, do you have sex, enjoy food, etc.?
                       
                      Very much.
                       
                      And you forgot a good Cohiba.
                       
                      Sex is mere humping,.......... while a good cigar..........now that's something.

                      Being somewhat wet-behind the ears, can you please explain what is that difference?
                       
                       
                       
                       
                        Do you act non-dual(ie
                      Ramana)
                       
                       
                      That dude in the diaper was acting?
                       
                       
                       
                       or are you a hipocrit and really practice qualified non-
                      dualism(ie papaji).
                       
                      So non-hypocrisy lies in practicing non-qualified non-dualism?
                       
                      Can any "ism" escape a qualification?
                       
                      Non-qualification..............is not a qualification?
                       
                       
                        Act non-dual as well as talk non-dual.
                       
                      How do you act non-dual?

                        The Holy Mother prepares food according to the childs temperments.

                        Let us see if I can cook some good old fashion, home cooked non-dual
                        Bhakti, non-dual Gnani style. I get the feeling it would be less
                        spicy.

                        JJM. A mental splinter, like a thought can be removed with non-
                        identification.

                        A phiscial splinter, like a splinter :), can be removed with tweezers.

                        The difference between sahaja savikalpa samadhi and sahaja nirvikalpa
                        samadhi is that one dude would have moved back from the fire, to the
                        other there was no fire, and no legs.

                        I guess the defence mechanism of refutation might come from believing
                        that you have the same power as the president.

                        A king demand a yogi tell him a special mantra. The yogi refused.
                        When asked he sayed it would not work for him. The king tripped out
                        and demanded to know why. Just then the yogi tripped out and ordered
                        a guard nearby to sieze the king. The guard did not even blink. The
                        king then got angrier and odered the guard to sieze the yogi. The
                        yogi became histarical with laughter when the gaurd grabbed him. The
                        yogi said he had just demonstrated why it would not work.

                        What if there is such things as avatars? Miracles........

                        So this distinction is valid in my books.
                        Ramana was the Man.

                        If you want to know my description of the distinction between
                        Savikalpa Samadhi and Nirvikalpa Samadhi, I am sure it is still
                        floating around on web. Type my full name in exact search in
                        google. Feel free to send me refutations. I enjoy learning more
                        than teaching.

                        JJM. So sit on a hot stove. The natural abidance in the effulgence
                        of Self, is preceded by the un-natural abidance in the effulgence of
                        Self.

                        He however was already boiled, a fresh pot.

                        Sahaja Nirvikalpa Samadhi is different than Sahaja Savikalpa
                        Samadhi. Those words of mine alluded to it.

                        JJM. Truth is apparent. So is honesty. Honesty is accepting neither
                        duality or oneness as you say. So, honestly, Jason is mine, Sandeep
                        is yours. I will hang on to Jason for the time being. If your
                        looking to give away Sandeep, I'll pass.

                        JJM. The waking body is just as fleeting as the dream body. Where
                        is your body in deep sleep, or nirvikalpa samdhi. Could we chat in
                        the later "states". We are now. What does that tell ya?

                        that's something.

                        Jason also enjoys the odd joint, the odd cigarrete, mexican and
                        italian food, and the Holy Mother. Does the none dual state allow of
                        parts?

                        If a tree falls in the forest does it make a sound? Only if there is
                        an ear drum around. Other wise it is just vibration.

                        Yes, the part of Ramana. He did not talk for many years, in the
                        early years. I guess he was only doing guest appearnences at the
                        time. And as for his action after, he compared it to a sleep
                        walker. He said Jesus the Christ was not aware of his action. Have
                        you ever driven home and not remebered getting, like sleep walking,
                        it is just a metaphor to explain sahaja nirvikalpa samadhi. The pure
                        expression of God.

                        The sadhana of gnani gets you to act right. No parts, no desire.
                        Kill desire. Etc. No male or female, means no sex. Shitty deal for
                        some. An ape is attracted to an ape. Different races are attracted
                        to their own somewhat. Daughter end up with husbands like their
                        dads. Attraction is a mental creation, enforced by past influences.

                        If you were non-dual, would you like blondes or brunnettes better?
                        Bunk question in the non-dual standpoint.


                        Anyways, If I had posted the below before you posted your response,
                        which one would you have responded to, and what would have been the
                        thought and context.


                        Posted on the "direct approach" group.

                        "Hello,

                        Natural abidance in the effulgence of Self, is preceded by un-natural
                        abidance in the effulgence of Self.

                        This whole group, Ramana, Sankara, Patanjali, Ramakrishna, etc. etc.,
                        vedanta, religion, the very chance to experience realization, would
                        not be without the cause.

                        So to deny the former, is to deny the present.

                        Without duality, there would be no whole. Get it.

                        Thank the dudes that remain un-awakened, as they give the chance for
                        us to be the polar.

                        Nirvikalpa samdhi admits of no parts, no body(hence death in most
                        cases). So it is seen that the natural state would not allow our
                        little chats. And where would be the fun in that.

                        This is sahaja savikalpa samadhi we are injoying, or you would not be
                        reading this.

                        Sahaja savikalpa (dual) samadhi or the natural abidance in the
                        effulgence of Self, is the kingdom of heaven, the kingdom of heaven
                        is inside you. Enjoy it.

                        But remember without hell, there is no heaven.

                        Om Tat Sat.

                        Ramakrishna was travelling in a cariage to some devotees house, they
                        passed a bar, with revelors and drunk merry makers. He saw the
                        revelry of the Holy Mother and went into samadhi. He shouted,
                        congratulations and happiness for them, as he leaned out of the
                        carrige and lost outward consciousness. One new devotee became
                        concerned about the masters body. His concernes were quenched by an
                        experienced devotee of the Master.

                        Namaste
                        Om Namah Shivaya
                        Jason James Morgan"
