As Bhagavan was descending the Hill,
one of the workers,
just outside the Asramam stopped work
and was about to prostrate before the Master.
Then the Master said:
“To engage in your duty is the true prostration.”
The Master’s attendant asked:
“How?”
Bhagavan.:
“To perform one’s duty carefully is the greatest service to God

What exists in truth is the Self alone. The world, the individual soul and God are appearances in it. Like silver in mother-of-pearl, these three appear at the same time and disappear at the same time.

“If a man considers he is born he cannot avoid the fear of death. Let him find out if he has been born or if the Self has any birth. He will discover that the Self always exists, that the body which is born resolves itself into thought and that the emergence of thought is the root of all mischief. Find wherefrom thoughts emerge. Then you will abide in the ever-present inmost Self and be free from the idea of birth or the fear of death.”

 “I do not know how to worship. So kindly show me the way to worship.”
Answer (M.): Is there a ‘worshipper’ and a ‘worshipped’? Find out the ‘I’, the worshipper; that is the best way. Always the seer must be traced.

D.: Are there heaven (swarga) and hell (naraka) ?
Maharshi: There must be someone to go there. They are like dreams. We see time and space exist in dream also. Which is true, dream or wakefulness?

The moon shines by reflecting the light of the sun. When the sun has set, the moon is useful for displaying objects. When the sun has risen no one needs the moon, though its disc is visible in the sky. So it is with the mind and the heart. The mind is made useful by its reflected light. It is used for seeing objects. When turned inwards, it merges into the source of illumination which shines by Itself and the mind is then like the moon in the daytime."
