Jnana Yoga 11
Praise and Thanksgiving
Thank You Aum. Thank You Bha. Thank You Gye Nyame.
Thank You Aum. Thank You Bha. Thank You Gayathri.
We think of You as the Source of the
Energy that pervades and transcends
the Heavens, the atoms, the quarks, all
vibratory phenomena and the Infinite
Stillness of Being, No-thing.
Thank You for teaching us how to reform
ourselves, and how to raise our moral
standards. You, the Eternal Light of
our original Divine nature, are here, now,
in this moment.
We think of You as the Eternal, Omnipresent,
Omniscient, Supreme Indweller, the Hidden
One, more subtle than the either, who pervades
and transcend forms and formlessness. Of the
great, You, and only You, are the Greatest!
Source of all the great, with whom can You
be compared? You are eternally bigger
than the biggest and smaller than the
smallest, simultaneously, and You are
beyond all concepts. There is no likeness
We think of You as pervading and
transcending nature and the cosmic
manifestation. You are within and
beyond all names, forms, and even
formlessness. Surely, You are Supernatural
in all respects. None can compare with You.
You are the indestructible Unity within
and beyond the cosmic variety of Solar
Systems. Thank You for helping us
understand this ancient formula for attaining
unity within ourselves, as well as with others
throughout the Cosmic Manifestations.
Aggressively thinking about You, the
Truth of truths, is our methodology for
overcoming divisive ignorance and being
emancipated, reestablished, consciously in
the bliss of Your Eternally United, Divine
Thank You for revealing to us how, by
seeking and returning to You, we learn and
know how to know, love, and uplift ourselves
and others from our downtrodden condition
We think of You as the Source of all
illusions and realities. You are infinitely
more subtle than air, either and AUM, the
most perfect union of sound, form and
formlessness in our experience.
Thank You for helping us do better for
ourselves by always thinking of You.
In the process of bettering ourselves, we
are working for the betterment of all.
Nature, Space, Time, and all
circumstances are within You. It is
You alone who are within and beyond
all. This is the very ancient and
supremely liberating, spiritual
knowledge of our most righteous
True liberation, freedom from Maya,
Your illusory energy, begins with changing
the way we see the self.
We start seeing the self as pure energy
or spirit, far more subtle than any material
particles. We are now seeing the Truth. We
are not the body with a soul, we are the
eternal soul that was misidentifying the self
to be a temporary, illusory, material body,
mind, and ego.
Now we experience our existence in the
spiritual world. This world is right next door,
if You will, to the illusory material world.
The difference being that the material
world is temporary; while the spiritual
world is eternal.
When we change the way we see the self,
we change the way we see our world.
When we change the way we see our world,
from material to spiritual, the world we see
and experience, changes, from material
You are beyond form and formlessness,
and You are always here. This path of
purification of consciousness, awareness,
and intelligence, purifies our existence.
Purification of existence means,
elevation out of Maya, the temporary life
of ignorance and suffering. Gradually
we are cleaning up and returning to our
original, eternal position of union with
You, Divine Intelligence.
As the undifferentiated Supreme Absolute,
You pervade and transcend monotheism,
polytheism, and any other dualities. Like a
finger pointing toward the midday Sun, mere
words can only make a feeble attempt to
explain or aim in the direction of Your
