The Self in Merging with Siva


A reader of Merging with Siva asks Gurudeva about his references to the Self in the book. Is it always in reference to Parasiva, the timeless, formless, causeless Absolute Reality? Gurudeva tells us that our reason for being on Earth is to realize the Self, and that the first realization is Satchidananda. The more advance realization is Parasiva. MWS refers to both realizations, and the reader must read carefully to distinguish.

Those of you who are wrestling with the mind in your many endeavors to try to concentrate the mind, to try to meditate, to try to become quiet, to try to relax, keep trying. Every positive effort that you make is not in vain.
