the incompleteness of the reading/writing method

those who think that they can

learn something just by silent reading

are under a big illusion


learning only happens through

verbal repetition

(internal for the mute, external for the rest)

repeating

just as the guru (teacher) has spoken


the way guru said something

was as important as what he/she said


even this only worked

if the basic requirement -

'praise, respect and service to the guru'

was satisfied


this was the vedic way of teaching

employed since beginning of time

why?

it was simply the only way that actually worked

through wholistically covering all the bases


reading and writing promoted mindlessly in

today's schools and institutions

has no chance of imparting any learning

which can assist in soul evolution


even those reading this blog

will not really learn anything

which they can practically instill into their lives

to evolve their soul

until they have the discipline to do

continuos verbal repetition of the text

+ respectful service to the guru

All servitude on earth is much of a muchness. Because thats what it is - who you choose to be a slave to makes no difference.

the only true awakening is the connection between the inner soul self and the one creator, realisation of infinite consciousness and servitude to the divine creator, then one is truly free and in paradise

humility is the only path that leads us all there

your blogs are amazing.. it suddenly makes sense
why in ancient times nothing was ever written in books, just passed orally from guru to disciple.. books are recent invention..

to stardolphin -

yes it makes a difference.
when one serves the higher
one moves higher

serving more divine than oneself
is serving the divine creator.
thats why the wiser ones
served the sages

yes humility is required
but praising/serving something higher than oneself is the source of humility

no real real-isation can happen without
practical effort like verbal repetition
... there are many out there who do this lalaland talk of having establsihed this connection
without any reality to back it up

so true

i predict in the next year or so we will see an explosion of so-called enlightened people jumping on the bandwagon and declaring themselves messianic or guru, as the veils of delusion and walls of hive mind control begin to crumble - false prophets without, as you say, anything to back it up.

Look forward to your 2010 blogs and vids, a daily, essential true source of enlightenment, common sense, inspiration and wisdom.

This was also the traditional method of keeping the history on Turtle Island since the beginning of time. :)

There is a thread running through your P-logs that connects us. It is a sacred connection.

It is a great honor to be allowed at your feet to be taught ... i bow

You show the way to sanity of mind

it's so great that You are here
only You gno what to do and what not to
