Who seeks Self-Realization?
We say " I
am a man or woman, I
am a daughter, son, father, mother,
sister or brother, I
am from this or that country, I
am the doer of this
or that action, I
am good or bad, I
am happy or sad, I
am a seeker, I
am spiritual, I
am a lover of God."
We speak of " my home, my family, my friends, my enemies, my job, my stuff, my strengths, my weaknesses, my thoughts, my emotions, my problems, my joy, my karma, my past, my future, my spiritual path, even of my God."
- What is this I and my who claims to be and own such things?
- Are these things, claims, and identities who I really am?
- What are all these things, these objects, this world?
- What is the stuff of which they are made?
- And from where do all these many things arise ?
- Who am I, really ? Who am I?
One who is not able to refrain from asking such nagging questions is a candidate to travel the path of Self-Realization, wherein all of these questions are resolved in the direct experience of the Absolute Reality.
The path of the Himalayan sages is an ancient-most path of Self-Realization encompassing the oral Yoga Meditation system recorded by Patanjali, Advaita Vedanta, and purely internal Tantra.
