Experience

Each experience completes. Completion means leading to void or nothing. In the progression of life, you will leave behind every experience saying, “This is nothing.” Anything that is completed loses its importance. That is to say it leads you to void – this is nothing. A sign of intelligence is how soon you arrive at this understanding. Examine everything in life and say “This is nothing” and what remains after all that, is Love, and that is everything. When “This is nothing” does not come out of knowledge, it comes out of misery. Either through knowledge or through misery, you come to the point of “This is nothing, this is nothing”. The choice is yours. If you got this, it is really NOTHING, If you didn’t get this, never mind – this is nothing.

====================

You are here only for 80-100 years. You have no control over what will happen after 200 years. Nor did you have any control over the 19 billion years that the planet has existed. Know that you don’t have control. All that you can do is pray and wish that the best happens.

Q: How did Buddha attain enlightenment without doing sadhana, seva, or satsang?

Guruji: Who said that Buddha did not meditate? Meditation is sadhana!

Buddha also travelled to so many places and served the people. He listened to everyone’s problems, and taught them meditation. Isn’t this seva?

Who said he didn’t do satsang? Every day they would sit and do satsang. All the Buddhist scriptures are from these satsang only. He sang and spoke in Pali (a Middle Indo-Aryan language).

He is the one who said, ‘Bhavatu sabba mangalam, rakkhantu sabba devata’ (May all beings be happy, and may all the Gods protect you). In those days the language used was Pali, so whatever Buddha spoke and sang in Pali, is what has become the Buddhist scriptures today. If you look at it that way, then you can say that Lord Krishna did not do much. He recited the Bhagavad Gita. In fact Lord Buddha did a lot. He meditated a lot, he fasted a lot. Whatever anyone told him to do, he did. After doing so much, when finally he got very tired, that is when he got enlightenment.

Buddha did a lot of sadhana. Krishna did not do much sadhana at all. He was mischievous; he did something here, and then he went and did something there. That is why it is called Krishna Leela (The Play of Krishna), and Buddha Katha (The Story of Buddha).
