Everlasting Omnipresent Peace


Jnana  Yoga  10

Praise and Thanksgiving 

Thank You Aum.  Thank You Bha.  Thank You Gye Nyame.

Thank You Aum.  Thank You Bha. Thank You Gayathri.


Remembering You is our primary tool 

for cleansing our consciousness, awareness, 

and intellect from the sinful grasp of lust.  

To the degree we are free of Lust, we are free

 from the oppression and terror of Maya, 

and we are developing into our best



Our spiritual development is powered 

by our ability to remember You.  We do

 this by dovetailing our life activities in a 

way that, in the final analysis, we are 

thinking of You.


Remembering You,  we raise ourselves by

 ourselves from the  wretchedness of the 

material world.  Gradually we restore 

ourselves to our original position of 

Everlasting, Omnipresent Peace, here, 

in this moment.  


We know from our personal research, 

observation and experience, that our help 

comes from remembering You.  We do 

this by praising You, thanking You, 

offering everything to You, in all 

circumstances, and meditating on You.


 Offering praise and thanksgiving to

 You is Surrendering to You.  Surrendering 

to You is serving You.  Chanting Your Holy

 Names and Glories is speaking and hearing

 about You.  Thus, hearing, chanting, serving,

 and remembering You, we associate with 

You.  In this way, and by Your Grace, we

attain brief experiences of  Your



The art and science of remembering You

 through praising and  thanking You is 

enhanced by consciously surrendering all 

to You.  All that we think  feel, will, say, 

and do, we surrender to You. The purpose

 of this spiritual practice is to bring us ever 

closer to conscious union with You. 


Thank You for revealing to us this ancient

 method of purifying our consciousness, 

awareness and intellect by always praising

 and thanking You.  


By praising and thanking You constantly

 we edify, quiet, as well as purify our 

consciousness, awareness, and  intelligence.  

This empowers our consciousness to entertain

 better,  more edifying thoughts, clarify and 

sharpen our  awareness, purify and further 

enlighten our intelligence.


You are beyond characterless and 

character, personality and impersonality.  

All life has its origin and dissolution in You,

 the Supreme Pure, Metaphysical

 One.  By Your grace and mercy we are

 able to offer these humble words of praise 

and thanksgiving to You; by doing so, we 

purify and enrich our own character.


While supporting and sustaining all attributes

 of reality, You pervade and transcend substance 

and space.  Thank You for helping us remember 

to praise and thank You through all stages and

 levels of our consciousness, awareness, and



We associate with You through constant 

remembrance of  You.  We remember You 

by praising and thanking You, offering all to 

You, and by chanting Your Holy Names.  


Beyond negative and positive, You are the 

Source of the Supreme Energy, the Spiritual 

Force which we experience and transmit 

internally and externally.  Some know it as

 Aura or Electro Magnetic field.


By rekindling our love for You through 

this science of Jnana Yoga, we awaken to 

our dormant love for You.  As this 

happens, our love for all living entities

 is aroused.


All life is One in You and You are the One

 in all life.  Like a child offering the vastness

 of the Galaxies a very small leaf or a few 

drops of water, we offer You our humble 

praise and thanksgiving with all of the

 love and  respect we have at this moment.  


You are our Divine Intelligence, known as

 God in most of the western world.  Our most 

righteous Inner and  External Teacher,

 Leader, Guide, and Most Dear Friend,  You 

are Eternal, Omnipresent, Omniscient, and 

Omnipotent, the Ever-Well Wisher of all.


Our primary business is to remember You by 

every means we have.  The more we are able 

to do this, the better we are able to  transcend

 the so-called stressings and blessings of the

 material world.  They are both temporary, 

therefore unreal and not worth striving 

against or for.  Remembering You, the 

eternal, we transcend all illusions and

 experience Your ever present tranquil 



Aum is Your Primordial, Primeval Word.

  It arises out of the Pure, Divine intelligence

 of No-thingness.


This No-Thingness is the most subtle, beyond

preons, point particles.  It is conceived of as 

sub-components of quarks and leptons.  

You, within and beyond prions, are the Most

 intelligent and subtlest of all.  Therefore, You 

are greater than No-thing.
