  • Dear Bhaktas,
           By Sai baba's grace, reading books Like Yoga vasistha, i felt that the world is an imaginary concept. It does not exist. Got inspired to share the experience hence this thread. Will post one by one experiences & reasoning to share understanding this subtle concept.

    Om Sai Ram.

  • The world appears to be true only because of the mind or memory.

    After all we get the various experiences in the world by virtue of mind. If mind were not there, we won't get any experiences, such as pain, pleasure, joy, sorrow etc. The mind sits on top of our conciousness & makes us feel that the imaginary is real. Just as in a cinema theatre, on the screen, we can see moving pictures, which appear to us as real, but they are unreal. What exists there is only the screen.

    Hence to get rid of world or Samsara, we need to get rid of the mind or arrest it's movement i.e. moving from one thought to other. This can be done by concentrating on one single object (Sai baba) & continuing this practice over a period of time. Sai baba has said "When the mind is concentrated the Goal will be attained."......

  • This is funny, The Lord says i am directly present in front of them, in the form of their consciousness (awareness). Yet they fail to recognize me.

    Really, we must observe our own awareness, that tells us that we are somebody. That consciousness itself is the God or Brahman Or Sai or Krishna.

  • Either observe the consciousness or observe the ego (that reacts with likes or dislikes). Or observe the ego as different than the consciousness (is-ness)
    Once you observe your own ego, it has got no other support & sheds away. What remains is the consciousness.

  • The understanding that world is imaginary & all happenings & experiences, that we get in the world are imaginary, can be got only after our mind is calm & free. Just as when water is clear & steady we can see underneath it.

    Worldly People do not have this calm mind. They are completely under the control of Yoga-Maya of the Lord & therefore have lots of passions, likings, envys, jealousies, etc. To get rid of this & make the mind calm, there is no option but to surrender to the Lord & remember him always & do all actions for his sake.

  • All the visible phenomenon in the world are imaginary. Say for example, the mountains, valleys, land, water, air, distance, time all these are imaginary. The world & it's objects is nothing but simply a projection of the mind.
      Our own body is also imaginary. It does not exist !!!!!!! Needless to say, then that all the bodily diseases as well as bodily death are imaginary. All these things are simply a projection of the mind.

  • In our current conditioned existence, people have to go through various sorrows,

    1. Sorrow of seeing Death (our own & our relations)
    2. Sorrow of Old age (our own & our relations)
    3. Sorrow of Disease (our own & our relations)
    4. Sorrow of trouble from other people.
    5. Sorrow of trouble from natural & man-made calamities
    5. Sorrow of uncertainty

    It is quite surprising that even after all these defects of our conditioned existence, people do dont desire to be liberated from it. May be because they do not know, that there is a way.

    But there is good news. All the above sorrows are imaginary. They do not exist. The Jiva thinks that he is the doer & enjoyer & entangles him in endless miseries & does not know the way of deliverance.

    Just observe your self & ask Who I am ? You are the conciousness or awareness. You are God, You do not exist only in some part of India or US or any other region. You exist everywhere at all times !!!

  • To the person who is without desires, even if he travels a 1000 km., he does not feel that he has travelled much.
    Also after spending many-many years, he does not feel that any significant period of time has elapsed.

    This is because the TIME & SPACE concepts are imaginary & have been born only because of Maya (the mind). In the Brahman, there is no Space & there is no time. People foolishly think, that they have moved from one place to another. They were & are always present everywhere, since they are the conciousness & not the physical body.
     
    For this, we have to make a habit of observing our own conciousness. Gradually we come to understand that, it is not our personal conciousness, but it is the all pervading conciousness, the God.

  • Feeling that I am the body is the real Poverty. Irrespective of whether or not a person is a king or pauper, so long as he feels that he is the body, he is by all means "Poor", since bodily existence has so many miseries.

    Knowing that I am the all pervading conciousness, is the supreme richness. It has no limitations & miseries. It is full of Joy. They call it Brahmanand.

    Hence they describe Sai baba with the following words....
    BRAHMA-NANDAN  PARAM-SUKHADAM  KEVELAM  DNYAN-MURTIM

  • Sai baba said to Nanasaheb Chandorkar about Maya

    Maya does 2 things
    1. It hides what really exists
    2. What does not exist, It makes one feel, that it exists.

    So Maya hides from us, what we really are, the supreme conciousness.
    What we are not i.e. body, we feel that we are that. We fell that our body is our whole & sole. Bodily identification brings a lot of miseres with it, which one cannot avoid, no matter even if one is supremely wealthy or opulent.
     
    Hence one must try to gain his real identity & that is only possible by loving rememberance of Sadguru.

    Om Sai Ram
