Thank You Aum. Thank You Bha. Thank You Gye Nyame.
Thank You Aum. Thank You Bha. Thank You Gayatri.
The more we see and serve, praise and thank You, as we
encounter the changes of life, the greater is our purity of
consciousness, our self-defining ability and our equal-
mindedness toward all sentient beings. We see the universe
holistically. Everything is equal within You who are
pervading and transcending all. We meditate on You as
the Supreme Awareness, more subtle then Silence and
Thank You for teaching us how to overcome our inability to
lift ourselves out of the suffering of Your illusory energy by
chanting Your Holy names and offering You everything. This
spiritual practice helps us to remember You, think bout You,
concentrate on You, and meditate on You.
We had fallen into body consciousness, the ancient, rural
pigsty, and forgotten You. Always thinking of You,
concentrating on You, and meditating on You, is helping
us. It is raising us, cleansing us of a wretched condition of
existence, and bringing us back to You, the Eternal, Most
Clean and Exceptionally Pure, state of Supreme Awareness.
Our spiritual practice consists of, and revolves around, always
thinking of You and meditating on You. This is done by praising
and thanking You, calling out Your names and submitting
everything to You: Our thoughts, our pains, our pleasures
our gains. All that we do, all that we offer or give away, all
austerities we may perform, everything we do, we do as an offering
or submission to You.
Surely, we think of You as our anchor, our strength, our
Samaritan, and our Supreme Source of all knowledge,
strength, fame, beauty, wealth, renunciation, and all other
good fortune. Thank You for teaching us how to always
think of You, how to concentrate on You, and how to
meditate on You. By fixing the mind on You, and
changing the "Image/Concept" of the Self from material
to Spiritual, we come back to You.
We think of You as our eternally Most Enlightened state of
Being. Thank You over and over again for teaching us how
to meditate on You. Meditating on You, we remember and
experience You. Remembering and experiencing You, we
gradually see You everywhere, in everything.
We meditate on You as the complete Leader always available to
help us solve problems of life. Those problems have their roots
in birth, disease, old-age, and death. You are the grand solution,
the antidote, our way out of an abnormal and corrupt life, Maya.
All praise is due to You alone.
The beginning of this coming back home process happens as we to
begin seeing the self as awareness or spirit temporarily inhabiting a
material body. Simultaneously we engage the mind in always
thinking of You and meditating on You. We think of You as the One,
Most Pure Energy, who is within and beyond all images, places, and
When we finally are exhausted with the external, futile search for sense
gratification, turn and start looking out from within, from the Pineal
Gland, then we are coming back home, coming back through the Seventh
Chakra, to the Self, back to You. Our Source, our Savior, our Redeemer,
our Everything is You. We meditate on You as our Silence and our
Awareness of everything, including Silence.
All praise is due to You alone. You are our only and Greatest
Self. You have no equals nor partners. We take refuge in You
by always thinking of You, meditating on You, becoming Your
devotee, worshipping You and offering all our homages to You.
All that we think, feel, will, say, and do, we do as as surrender,
offering, submission, service to You. This is the way we take
refuge in You. Thank You for continuing to purify us with Your
self- improving association. Thank You for protecting us from
anything or being that could distract us from always thinking
of You and meditating on You. All praise is due to You alone.
Thank You for helping us to always think of You as the One
Omnipresent Supreme Being. Thus, we are able to meditate
on You, here, now, as Consciousness and Awareness, and
Awareness of consciousness and awareness. Gradually, we
come back to Awareness of Your One Immanence and
Transcendence which pervades and transcends everything
we think of as "I," "Me," or "Mine".
We think of You, we concentrate on You, we meditate on You
as pervading and transcending all faces, forms, intellects, and
aspects. Furthermore, we think of You, we concentrate on You,
we meditate on You as the Source of Cultural refinement, and the
Source of All representations of Divinity.

55. There is no world apart from the Self. There is nothing of the non-Self, ever.
Anything apart from the Self is unreal. This is the truth—the truth. There is
no doubt of this.
56. There is no happiness apart from the Self. There is nothing else apart from the
Self. There is nowhere to go apart from the Self. One should remain forever
in the Self.
57. There is nothing anywhere apart from the Self. There is not a blade of grass
apart from the Self. There is nothing whatever apart from the Self. There
is nothing apart from the Self at any time.
58. This explanation of the Bliss of the Self has been expounded to you by me.
Whichever wise man hears this once, himself becomes Brahman.
59. This gives instant Liberation from bondage by being heard even once. By
understanding the meaning of this treatise, one is liberated from everything.
60. Suta: Worship with a committed heart the full, the true, ever Brahman, with
the divine Truth of the Self, eternal and without agitation of the mind. He
exists, with knots cut asunder, in Isvara, at the pure feet of Siva, and shines
inwardly. He becomes restful inside and surely becomes, after death, the

We think of You as the Infinite Stillness of Being and Its Awareness.
You, the Ultimate Unity in all the diversity of Being, are the only
One for whom we strive. We meditate on You as the Silence and the
Supreme Observer of all.
We think of You, we concentrate on You, we meditate on You as the
the Most Righteous, Supreme Leader, of all the Worlds. Thank You
for teaching us that we are Eternal Spirit, Soul, in quality One with
You, not the temporary material body, mind, intellect, or ego.
We do not have to save the world. We do not have to wait
until everyone else is ready. We can think of You right now,
meditate on You, and begin to live again in our universe of
Peace. You who pervade, and are beyond, every ray of light
and every vibration. You are our earliest condition of
existence, and You are available here in this moment.
We meditate on You as this Supreme, Eternal, Most Subtle
Power Force pervading and transcending all interior and
exterior worlds. Our evolution up through the different
stages of our spiritual transformation depends on our
remembrance of You, the Substratum of all beings.
