What should we do as spiritual aspirants to experience the bliss of the Self (Atma-ananda)? Bhagawan lovingly guides and inspires us today!
Spiritual aspirants have to direct their attention away from the external world and become in-sighted; they have to turn their vision toward the Atma. They must analyse the processes of the mind and discover for themselves the origin of all the modifications and agitations of the mind. By this means, every trace of “intention” and “will” has to disappear. Afterwards, the only idea that will get fixed in the mind will be the idea of Brahman. The only feeling that will occupy the mind will be the feeling of bliss, which arises out of its establishment in the stage of being-awareness-bliss (satchidananda). Such spiritually wise people (jnanis) will be unaffected by joy or grief, for they will be fully immersed in the ocean of Atmic bliss (Atma-ananda), above and beyond the reach of worldly things.
