Everlasting Omnipresent Peace


Jnana Yoga  9

Praise and Thanksgiving 

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

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


Thank You for teaching us how to purify

 our Intelligence by praising and thanking

You in all circumstances. To the extent 

our intelligence is purified, our 

    consciousness and awareness are cleansed

 and purified. 


When our awareness is purified it

 has greater power to recognize and allow


edifying thoughts into the consciousness. 

 In its turn, purified consciousness repels

 unedifying thoughts and allows edifying 

thoughts, worthy of concentration, in for 

our uplift and union You, Divine



Within purified consciousness, awareness,

and intelligence, our thinking, feeling, 

willing and doing are cleaner, quieter, in 

harmony and balance, and more 

conducive to our edification, liberation,

and salvation.


You are Supreme Righteousness, the

 Uncreated,  Self-existent being from whom 

all energy emanates, in whom all energy

 is maintained and within whom all energy  

is returned. Thank You for helping us 

comprehend our internal and external 

relationship with energy and You. 


Thank  You for assisting us in our quest for

 Righteousness. The more our consciousness

 is purified by fixing it on You, the more we

 think right, feel right, will right, and do right.

We see and comprehend that Righteous is

 our Original Nature. 


Gradually, by always trying to remember

 You, we are raised to the importance of

 treating any sentient being the way we 

 would like to be treated. 


This life style of always thinking of You

 is vital to our  evolution as a soul.  We 

have come from exceedingly lower levels

 of brute consciousness.  Still, to ever

 greater magnitudes of Divine 

Consciousness, awareness, and 

intelligence, we rise.


We know You as our One Supreme 

Intelligence who pervades and transcends 

all names, forms, and formlessness. You 

are the Infinite, the All Mighty power of 

all pervade and transcend all.


 Thank You for showing us how to

 simultaneously transcend our captivity in 

the illusion of Maya, return to our History, 

our Culture, our Spiritual Integrity, be

 truly free from insatiable desire, and

increasingly in union with Your 

Everlasting Peace.


We think of You as the smallest of the 

and the biggest of the big, simultaneously.

  You are eternal, full of unlimited grace, 

knowledge, and compassion.  Purification

 of our consciousness, awareness, and 

intelligence by praising You, helps us 

remember and return to You.


We reclaim, rebuild, and are restored to 

our traditional greatness as we study and 

practice this ancient spirituality of constant 

praising and remembering You.  This is

 one of the spiritual tools we are using to

 help us remain out of Maya and 

constantly returning here to You, Divine



Praising, thanking, and remembering 

You, in all situations, is one of our main

 spiritual practices.  Researching our 

history shows us that this, or a very 

similar spiritual practice, was used by

 our intelligent, righteous, Divinely

 inspired and aware Ancestors.


By always remembering You, our Most

 Righteous Ancestors seem to have been

 able to restore their lower self to their 

Divine Intelligence. 


This spirituality of our most righteous and 

Divinely Aware ancestors, which You are 

revealing to us, consists of Divine centered: 

praise and thanksgiving, prayer, study, 

sacrifice, service, right association, and 



We are striving to remember You ever

 more.  Consequently, in addition to purity

 and patience,  we are regaining our 

original state of being:  Eternal Pure

 Intelligence, full of complete 

comprehension and tranquil bliss, as

 a living reality in our daily life. 


 Praising and thanking You helps to purify 

and bring our total consciousness, 

awareness, and intelligence into complete

 union with You.  As we reawaken to union 

with You, we return to being the 

compassionate, ever well wisher of all

 living entities.


With all the love and devotion at our 

command, we thank You for teaching us 

how to remember You in all circumstances. 

 Thank You for accepting this humble 

offering of praise and thanksgiving. 


As we praise and thank You, we very 

naturally transcend the coarseness and misery 

of the life of material designations.  Thank You

 for helping us experience, through research, 

observation, and reflection, who we are and 

 how to attain You, our most beneficial goal of 

our life.
