Ra in Sanskrit means that which is radiant and "ma" means myself.
That which shines forth within me is Rams. That which is radiant in every particle of my being is Rama.
Rama was born to Dasharatha and Kaushalya. Dasharatha means "the ten-charioted one" in Sanskrit. It signifies the five sense organs and the five organs of action. Kaushalaya is Sanskrit for "skilled". The skilled driver of the ten chariots can give birth to Rama. When the five sence organs and the five organs of action are used skillfully, radiance is born within.
Rama was born in Ayodhya, which in Sanskrit means "the place where no war can happen". When there is o conflict in our mind, then radiance can dawn.

Some questions can only be answered in silence. Silence is the goal of all answers. If an answer does not silence the mind, it is no answer.
Thoughts are not the goal inthemselves. Their goal is silence. When you ask the question "who am I?" you get no answer, there is only silence. That is the real answer. Your soul is solidified silence and this solidified silence is wisdom, knowledge.
The easy way to silence thoughts is to arouse feelings, for only through feelings will peace, joy and love dawn. They are all your very nature.

Whenever a boundary is broken, it creates some fear. This fear creates aversion; this aversion in turn brings you back inside the boundary and to keep yourself in the boundary, you set up defences. But when you try to defend your position, it becomes a stress and every time you work to defend your position it makes you weaker.
On the path, people use even knowledge as a defnse against criticism. Do not use knowledge as a defense. Knowledge is like an umbrella for you - a shelter, not a weapon. Of course, sometimes "do not use knowledge as a weapon" becomes as an excuse not to be in knowledge.
Drop all your defences. Anyone can make a mistake - even you. Do not defend your mistakes, just accept them and move on. When you are totally defenceless, that is when you eill be completely strong.

Know that humiliation does not weaken you - it strengthens you. When you have a sense of belongingness, you cannot feel humiliated. The more egotistic you are, the more humiliation you feel.
When you are childlike and have a greater sense of kinship, you do not feel humiliated. Similarly when you are committed to truth and not to your ego, you do not feel humiliated.
If you are afraid of humiliation, you can neither make progress in you material life nor in your spritual life. When you stand above humiliation, you get closer to the Self - to God. When you are steeped in love, with existence, with the Divine, nothing whatsoever can humiliate you.
So the way out of humiliation is to get humiliated, be childlike, be crazy, get steeped in love and with the Divine, and be totally committed to truth, to knowledge

Normally, you offer your anger freely and make smile rare.
In ignorance, anger is cheap and a smile is costly.
In knowledge, a smile is free like the sun, air and water and
anger is extremely expensive like a diamond.
Make your smile cheaper and your anger expensive.

In the presence of your satguru, knowledge flourishes; sorrow diminishes; without any reason, joy wells up; lack diminishes; abundance dawns;
and all talents manifest
To the degree you feel concered to your guru, these qualities manifest in your life

Doubt is a gray area. Gray is neither black nor white. Doubt means you want to get rid of something. It is a temporary state. It is neither up nor down and that is where tension arises.

So how do you eliminate doubt? An event, knowledge or conventional wisdom cannot help. What can help?
Accept what you doubt as either black or white. Make it black and accept it or makee it white and accept that, regardless if it is black or white or something in between. See the gray as just a shade of black or white. Either way, you accept it. Honest or dishonest - accept it. Then the mind is quiet and you are no longer in the gray area

There is no problem that cannot be solved. When you have a problem that you think cannot be solved, you have accepted it. Then it is no longer a problem but a fact.
Suppose you think it is a problem that the ocean is too cold. Obvously, you cannot heat the ocean so it cannot be changed, you accept it and it is no longer a problem.
Thus there is no problem that cannot be solved. The moment you realize there is no solution,
a problem ceases to be a problem.
The solution is the tail of every problem. Solutions come to you when you are calm and centeredm when you use intelligence, when you are not lethargic but active, and when you have strong faith in divine law.

Your Life is a gift and you have come to unwrap the gift. In the process of unwrapping, remember to also save the wrapper.
Your environment, the situations around you, the circumstances in which you find yourself, and your body are the wrapping paper. When we unwrap, we often destroy the wrapping paper. We are in such a hurry that at times we even destroy the gifts. With patience and endurance, open your gifts and save the wrapping paper as well

When love glows, it is bliss,
When it flows, it is compassion,
When it blows, it is anger.
When it ferments, it is jealousy.
When it is all "no's", it is hatred.
When it acts, it is perfection.
When love knows, it is me.
