Siva Yogaswami speaks Wisdom (#2)

Satguru Siva Yogaswami

It must come from within. Don’t rely on book-knowledge. Trust the self alone.

All the three actions (i.e. creation, preservation, and destruction) are going on simultaneously.

If you know yourself, you will see that all others are like you.

Don’t be a slave.

The seer, the thing seen, and seeing are all dreams.

We do not need a certificate from anyone to know that we are eternal!

Who has improved the world? People have improved themselves and then
gone.

There is no need to ask anything from others.

God is with all of us. Then why should we become masters of others?

It is not a question of knowing yourself through yourself. You must see yourself
through yourself.

If the mind remains pure, that is equal to all yoga asanas.

Satguru Siva Yogaswami

Siva Yogaswami speaks Wisdom

Satguru Siva Yogaswami

“With one cut you can make two pieces”. (Tamil proverb). So it is with happiness and sorrow.

You won’t be happy till ‘I’ die.

As the growth of a lotus depends on the level of the water in the tank, so by knowledge (jnana) virtue is developed. And equally through virtue wisdom will be gained.

The book is within you. Turn over the leaves and study.

When you clean the garden, you also clean your mind.

First obey; then command.

Bring up God as you bring up a child.

Be alone. Be alert. Be like a fisherman watching his bait.

The inner voice will be heard from mounam (silence).
