That Paramatma that you want to attain, you want to realize, is
within you. This world that you desire is constantly leaving you.
This body has been dying as many years as have gone by. These years
are gone forever. Every moment these years are slipping by.
Therefore quickly realize that nothing in this world is yours. It
was never yours and it cannot ever be yours. This is the absolutely
Truth. Bhagwaan (God) has said – “Mameva ansh” “You are My very
own”. Whether we understand this or not, whether we accept it or
not, but this is the Truth. No one or thing will stay with us. It
is the attachment that we have developed to these things. It is
nothing but deceit (dhokaa).
Only Paramatma is ours. Only keep Him with you at all times. If
you desire benediction (kalyaan), then do not get caught up in
attachment (moha). All this is leaving every single moment, just
like Gangaji is flowing every moment. It is nothing but deceit
(dhokaa). If you understand this now, if you get it, it is a good
thing or else you will have to cry later. All this wealth, this
house, these things, these near and dear ones are all belonging to
the world. Everything! Nothing is ours and that is the Truth! It
will simply not stay with you and this is the absolutely Truth! You
brought nothing with you when you came here, and you can take
nothing back with you. Understand this completely! Accept it
completely! Answer me! Can you take anything with you? It is not
yours therefore you cannot take it with you. This attachment you
have developed will lead to sorrow. It will lead to regrets. It is
said in the scriptures that nobody will remain. If you leave it, it
will go away! And even if you don’t leave it, it will not stay with
you! Whatever it is that you desire, you will not be able to
entirely fulfill those desires.
“Unt mein tuhi tajenge paamar”. In the end all will leave, only You
will remain. This body is not for me, this body is not mine and
this body is not “me”. The greatness of this body is its vivek
(discriminative power). Nothing else! Many a great wise men have
talked, glorified about samadhi (profound meditation, the final
stage of Yoga, state of complete absorbtion or trance). But even
samadhi will not remain with you, as samadhi is of the body.
Nothing will be of any use. Only thing that will be of any use is
Bhagwaan (God). Nothing ever was of any use and nothing can ever be
of any use. It was not yours before, and it can never remain
yours. Only Bhagwaan is yours.
