A Quote by Sage Vasishtha on samsara, brahma, vishnu, delusion, truth, inquiry, self, and bliss

 For when delusion is gone and the truth is realized by means of inquiry into self-nature, when the mind is at peace and the heart leaps to the supreme truth, when all the disturbing thought-waves in the mind have subsided and there is unbroken flow of peace and the heart is filled with the bliss of the absolute, when thus the truth has been seen in the heart, then this very world becomes an abode of bliss.

A Quote by Sage Vasishtha on freedom, moksa, self control, inquiry, contentment, good company, pure heart, receptive mind, doubt, and liberation

There are four gate-keepers at the entrace to the Realm of Freedom [moksha].


Self control
Spirit of Inquiry
Contentment
Good Company

With a pure heart and a receptive mind, and without the veil of doubt and  restlessness of the mind, listen to the exposition of the nature and means of liberation.

A Quote by Sage Vasishtha on acquire, shun, jivanmukta, liberated, person, bliss, religion, duty, self-knowledge, essential, nature, and restless

Such a person has nothing to acquire, nor anything to shun. He is untainted by the defects of life, untouched by its sorrow.

He does not come into being nor go out, though he appears to come and go in the eyes of the beholder.

Even religious duties are found to be unnecessary. …His mind has given up its restlessness, and he rests in the bliss that is his essential nature. Such bliss is possible only by self-knowledge, not by any other means. Hence, one should apply oneself constantly to self-knowledge–this alone is one's duty.

A Quote by Sage Vasishtha on jivanmukta, normal, free, liberated, living, emptiness, and afraid

He who, while living an apparently normal life, experiences the whole world as an emptiness, is a Jivanmukta. None is afraid of him; he is afraid of none.

A Quote by Sage Vasishtha on infinite, vibrates, world, emerge, and submerge

When the infinite vibrates, the worlds appear to emerge. When it does not vibrate, the worlds appear to submerge, even as when a firebrand is whirled fast a fiery circle appears.

A Quote by Sage Vasishtha

This world-appearance is a confusion, even as the blueness of the sky is an optical illusion.  I think it is better not to let the mind dwell on it, but to ignore it.
