I will be doing nothing. Living will go on.

Once a blind young man came to hear Maharaj teaching.
When Maharaj himself asked him what he had understood, he sat quietly for a few moments, and then spoke:
Maharaj, I do not have the right words to express my feelings of gratitude to you for making the whole picture so very clear to me, so simply, and so quickly. I can summarize your teaching:
1. You asked me to remember what I was before I had this knowledge 'I am' together with the body, i.e., before I was 'born';
2. You told me that this body-cum-consciousness had come upon me without my knowledge or concurrence, therefore 'I' had never been 'born';
3. This body-cum-consciousness that is 'born' is time-bound and, when it disappears at the end of its allotted span, I shall be back in my original state, which is always present, but not in manifestation;
4. Therefore, I am not consciousness, and certainly not the physical construct which houses this consciousness;
5. Finally, I understand that there is only 'I' — neither 'me', nor 'mine', nor 'you' — only that which is. There is no bondage other than the concept of a separate 'me' and 'mine' in this totality of manifestation and functioning.
After hearing these words from the blind youth, uttered with absolute conviction, Maharaj had given him a look of understanding and love, and had asked him: "Now what will you be doing?" The answer was: "Sir, I have understood you truly. I will be doing nothing. 'Living' will go on." He then paid his respects to Maharaj with great adoration and left. The blind young man was not really blind, said Maharaj. He had the true vision. There are few like him.

Το συμπαντικό σχολείο της γιόγκα-Τhe entire universe becomes a school of Yoga.

O,τι ζει , εργάζεται για την προστασία,την διαιώνιση,την επέκταση της συνειδητότητας.
Αυτό είναι το μοναδικό νόημα και ο σκοπός του Κόσμου.
Είναι η ιδια η ουσία της γιόγκα,πάντα η ανύψωση του επιπέδου της συνειδητότητας,η ανακάλυψη νέων διαστάσεων,με τις  ιδιότητες, τις ποιότητές ,τις δυνάμεις τους.

Με αυτή την έννοια το σύνολο του Σύμπαντος είναι ένα σχολείο της γιόγκα.

All that lives, works for protecting, perpetuating and expanding consciousness. This is the world's sole meaning and purpose. It is the very essence of Yoga - ever raising the level of consciousness, discovery of new dimensions, with their properties, qualities and powers. In that sense, the entire universe becomes a school of Yoga.

Πνευματική άσκηση,spiritual practice

 H πνευματική άσκηση συνίσταται στην μετατόπιση της έμφασης από τον επιφανειακό και συνεχώς υποκείμενο σε αλλαγές προσωπικό εαυτό στον αμετάβλητο και πάντα παρόντα παρατηρητή.~~Nisargadatta

Sadhana(spiritual practice) consists in shifting the emphasis from the superficial and changeful person to the immutable and ever present witness.- Nisargadatta Maharaj
