Meditation  5


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


Thank You Aum.  Thank You Bha. Thank You Gayatri.



1

The more we see and serve, praise and thank You, as we 

encounter the changes of life, the greater is our purity of 

consciousness, our self-defining ability and our equal-

mindedness  toward all sentient beings. We see the universe 

holistically.  Everything is equal within You who are 

pervading and transcending all.  We meditate on You as 

the Supreme Awareness, more subtle then Silence and 

Space.


2

Thank You for teaching us how to overcome our inability to 

lift ourselves out of  the  suffering of Your illusory energy by 

chanting Your Holy names and offering You everything.  This 

spiritual practice  helps us to remember You, think bout You, 

concentrate on You, and meditate  on You.



3

We had fallen into body consciousness, the ancient, rural 

 pigsty, and forgotten You.  Always thinking of You, 

concentrating on You,  and meditating on You, is helping 

us.  It is raising us, cleansing us of a wretched condition of 

existence, and bringing us back to  You, the Eternal, Most 

Clean  and Exceptionally Pure, state of  Supreme Awareness.


4


Our spiritual practice consists of, and revolves around,  always


 thinking of You and meditating on You.  This is done by praising


 and thanking You, calling out Your names and submitting 


everything to You:  Our  thoughts, our pains, our  pleasures


 our gains.  All that we do,  all that we offer or give away, all 


austerities we may perform, everything we do, we do as an offering 


or submission to You. 


5


Surely, we think of  You as our anchor, our strength, our


 Samaritan, and our Supreme Source of all knowledge, 


strength, fame, beauty, wealth, renunciation, and all other 


good fortune.  Thank You for teaching us how to always


think of You, how to concentrate on You, and how to 


meditate on You.  By fixing the mind on You, and 


changing the "Image/Concept" of the Self from material


 to  Spiritual, we come  back to You. 



6


We think of You as our eternally Most Enlightened state of  

Being.  Thank You over and over again for teaching us how

 to meditate on You.  Meditating on You, we remember and 

experience  You.   Remembering and experiencing You, we

 gradually see You everywhere, in everything.



7


We meditate on You as the complete Leader always available to 


help us solve problems of  life.  Those problems have their roots


 in birth, disease, old-age, and death.  You are the grand solution,


 the antidote, our way out of an abnormal and corrupt life, Maya. 


 All  praise  is due to You alone. 


8

The beginning of this coming back home process happens as we to 


begin seeing the self as awareness or spirit temporarily inhabiting a


 material body.  Simultaneously we engage the mind in always 


thinking of You and meditating on You.  We think of You as the One, 


Most Pure Energy, who is within and beyond all images, places, and


things. 



9


When we finally are exhausted with the external, futile search for sense


 gratification, turn and start looking out from within, from the Pineal 


Gland, then we are coming back home,  coming back through the Seventh


 Chakra, to the Self, back to You.   Our Source, our Savior, our Redeemer,


 our Everything is You.   We meditate on You as our Silence and our 


Awareness of everything, including Silence.


10

All praise is due to You alone.  You are our only and Greatest

 Self. You have no equals nor partners.  We take refuge in You

  by always thinking of  You, meditating on You, becoming Your 

devotee, worshipping You and offering all our homages to You.  



11


All that we think, feel, will, say, and do, we do as as surrender, 


offering, submission, service to You.  This is the way we take 


refuge in You. Thank You for continuing  to purify us with Your 


self- improving association.  Thank You for protecting us from 


anything or being that could distract us from always thinking 


of You and meditating on You.  All praise is due to You  alone.  


12


Thank You for helping us to always think of You as the One 


Omnipresent Supreme Being.  Thus, we are  able to meditate 


on  You, here, now, as Consciousness and Awareness, and 


Awareness of consciousness and awareness.  Gradually, w


come back to Awareness of  Your One Immanence and


 Transcendence which pervades and transcends everything


 we think of as "I," "Me," or "Mine".



13


We think of You, we concentrate on You, we meditate on You 

as pervading  and  transcending all faces, forms, intellects, and 

aspects.  Furthermore, we think of You, we concentrate on You, 

we meditate on You as the Source of Cultural refinement, and the 

Source of All representations of Divinity.

' Chapter Eleven '

          55. There is no world apart from the Self. There is nothing of the non-Self, ever. 

                Anything apart from the Self is unreal. This is the truth—the truth. There is

 no doubt of this.

                56. There is no happiness apart from the Self. There is nothing else apart from the 

                   Self. There is nowhere to go apart from the Self. One should remain forever

 in the Self.

            57. There is nothing anywhere apart from the Self. There is not a blade of grass 

                 apart  from the Self. There is nothing whatever apart from the Self. There

 is nothing apart from the Self at any time.

      58. This explanation of the Bliss of the Self has been expounded to you by me. 

Whichever wise man hears this once, himself becomes Brahman.

     59. This gives instant Liberation from bondage by being heard even once. By 

                 understanding the meaning of this treatise, one is liberated from everything.

           60. Suta: Worship with a committed heart the full, the true, ever Brahman, with

             the divine Truth of the Self, eternal and without agitation of the mind. He

                 exists, with knots cut asunder, in Isvara, at the pure feet of Siva, and shines 

             inwardly. He becomes restful inside and surely becomes, after death, the

 entire universe.


' Chapter Eleven '


15

We think of You as the Infinite Stillness of Being and Its Awareness.  

You, the Ultimate Unity in all the diversity of Being, are the only 

One for whom we strive.  We meditate on You as the Silence and the

 Supreme Observer of all.


16

We think of You, we concentrate on You, we meditate on You as the

 the Most Righteous, Supreme Leader, of all the Worlds. Thank You

 for teaching us that we are Eternal Spirit, Soul, in quality One with

 You, not the temporary material body, mind, intellect, or ego.

17


We do not have to save the world.  We do not have to wait


 until  everyone else is ready.  We can think of You right now, 


meditate on You, and begin to live again in our universe of


  Peace.   You who pervade, and are beyond, every ray of light 


and every vibration.  You are our earliest condition of 


existence, and You are available here in this moment.



18


We meditate on You as this Supreme, Eternal, Most Subtle

 Power Force pervading and transcending all interior and 

exterior worlds.  Our evolution up through the different 

stages of our spiritual transformation depends on our 

remembrance of You, the Substratum of all beings.
