  1. "Have no enmity towards anyone."

     

    ~Sri Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  2. "When you do not know yourself and you try to know others, that is the state of the causal body. Ignorance, or Tamoguna, is its quality. It is also called Akash (the space from which the world appears). That which describes it is called the mind. That which thinks about it is called the intellect. To be proud of it is called 'ego,' or Ahankar."

     

    ~Sri Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  3. "Providence has arranged that what is required for real happiness can be had everywhere without any cost or effort."

  4. "Complicated words are not required, as it is beyond the human mind."

     

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  5. "The whole universe is the vision of a Sage. That vision contains everything, and it gives rise to the whole world. Hence, a Sage is free of volition."

     

    ~Nisargadatta Maharaj

  6. "One who is purified by seeing one’s own true nature naturally becomes benevolent. Who can really be beneficent? One who sees others as oneself."

     

    ~Nisargadatta Maharaj

  7. "One who takes his food with faith that it is Brahman, has observed a fast, although he dines."

     

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  9. "Give up the sense of 'mine' and you are free."

     

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  10. "The mirror says, 'There is nobody in me.' The man who looks into the mirror says, 'I am in the mirror.'"

     

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  11. "You were pure, formless and alone. Then, when the awareness of 'I Am' arises, understand that this is the active feeling of the ego, which says, 'I.'"

     

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  12. "The Jiva is himself Shiva, but the allurement of Maya is there. Although you are Shiva, she makes you conceive of yourself as a body. That is her power. She increases the forgetfulness of the Self and the longing after sensual pleasures. The thinking about sense objects is called mind. The cleverness of ego is called intellect."

     

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  13. "That which is not perceived is Reality."

     

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  14. "Relinquish all of the things that the 'I' desires, and then the mind is automatically slain."

     

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  15. "The real worth is related to the original thing. That thing is made to assume various forms and the whole game is going on. It is a fun. It is an amusement. It is a play of imagination indulged in, in idle time. It is playful attitude, and idea of fun. There is no consideration whether there is profit or loss, good or undesirable. It is just merriment of Consciousness. There is no need to feel sorry or happy about it. It is just a joyful mood of Consciousness. However, one who takes this seriously as true, falls into an ocean of sorrows."

     

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  16. "The jiva does not wish to have no form, no sensation, or to be extremely vast and spread out everywhere. We presume that it is death if we become like that. Thus, there is a liking for a particular form."

     

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  17. "All powers come to one who expects nothing at all."

     

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  18. "No second has ever been able to enter. If it is felt that some other has entered, this is only delusion. In the totality of doubtlessness, doubt is the second thing. That doubt multiplies and becomes a mind full of doubts, and the Illusion of the world appears."

     

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  19. "Generally it is the nose ring that is admired and valued, and not the nose. Similarly, it is that which is visible that is valued, and not the Self."

     

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  20. "The remarkable and rare can be accomplished only by doing something rare, and remarkably different from what others do."

     

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  21. "After Liberation, what is remaining is flawless Brahman.

    Now what exists is not in the realm of experience, because without our going to meet it, it is as it is, without trying to remember it. It is not something objective that can be remembered. Memory disappears together with forgetfulness. It is beyond truth and untruth. It is not truth, and it is not untruth.

    'That' which is, is. What 'That' is, cannot be told. Mind and intellect do not reach there. Words cannot express it."

     

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  22. "Listen to the "Master Key." I shall tell you what Knowledge is in one sentence.

     

    One in whom conceptualization has ceased is the Jnani."

     

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  23. "There is a game of madness, and it was decided that you must keep on playing this game win or lose, pleasure or pain, and you must keep experiencing it. You call it pleasure, but it must be killed. There is real happiness in killing the enjoyment, but people keep up the imagination, which is really only suffering. If you have killed the enjoyment, that is good. However, the killer of enjoyment must also die."

     

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  24. "The primary urge or movement that arises in Brahman is God. That itself, is what is called God, and it is the Primal Illusion (MoolaMaya)."

     

    ~Shri Samarth Sadguru Siddharameshwar Maharaj

  25. "All differences are due to ego. See what a strange thing has happened! God is sacrificed before the goat."
