27th Apr 2013 – Saturday – Dr. Jayadeva’s birthday celebrations
“I’m here and feeling well about others. Its a good day. Wish you all the best.”

30th Apr 2013 – Tuesday – Bhagwad Gita 4.13
“There is a description of the creator. Not seen and never involved in our presence and creating, everything’s created, the mountains are created , the rivers are created , but we have never seen him do anything. It is a belief. So you have to live on that belief. That there is something which is running the whole show and behind every event. Just that belief is necessary, not to use our intelligence.”

2nd May 2013 – Thursday – Vairagya
“See, giving up things, ‘Vairagya‘, is a very difficult feeling. We want to hold on to things. It reminds me when i had torn shirt, somebody gave me money , years back and i preserve it. And that is true of everything. At the end of my life, there must be so many things that i call ‘mine’. The question is can we give away things? Or since we have acquired, we have worked hard, collected, things belong to us? We should preserve them? That is the question.”

3rd May 2013 – Friday – Yoga Sutra 1.48
“This sutra is all technical. It talks of the highest knowledge, Prajna. But this highest is described as Rutambara: truth-bearing. It is not just the ordinary knowledge: 2+2=4. Whatever the person says turns out correct. Whatever he sees is accurate. Never any mistake. Just as an example, when the Founder was in The Yoga Institute in America, lots of eager supporters, American boys, they took him to a shooting range where they were shooting at the trunk of the trees with a pistol, testing their accuracy. Now Yogendraji had never seen a pistol, nor used one but these young boys were very eager that he takes a range and shoots. They wanted to test how accurate he is. He was given the pistol, told the trunk of a tree and asked to shoot and very strangely when he shot, it was accurate. They were surprised. Then they gave a revolver to him and told him ‘Now shoot.’ Probably some thought that the earlier time, the pistol was given to him by a person in a manner that it came out correct. Even the next time it was correct and they kept on trying and every time he was accurate and correct. That is the kind of capacity. Truth-bearing. Accuracy. Now the point is that the Yogi becomes internally so clear, so accurate, that he never goes wrong. Then his final decision, when he thinks of the Highest and concentrates and loses himself to that Highest, he is not wrong. He has decided the goal and he is after it.”
