“ To be a meditator doesn’t simply mean to live in a cave;

it means to train oneself in the true meaning of the natural state. ”

 

  “ A hundred things may be explained, a thousand told,

But one thing only should you grasp. Know one thing and

everything is freed – Remain within your inner nature, your awareness!. ”

 

If you want to know your past life, look into your present condition;

if you want to know your future life, look at your present actions..
