H W L Poonja Sayings



You are the unchangeable awareness in which all activity takes place. Always rest in peace. You are eternal Being, unbounded and undivided. Just keep Quiet. All is well. Keep quiet here and now. You are happiness, you are peace, you are freedom. Do not entertain any notions that you are in trouble. Be kind to yourself. Open to your heart and simply Be.

Self is what you are. You are that fathomless-ness in which experience and concepts appear. Self is the moment that has no coming or going. It is the heart, atman, emptiness. It shines to itself, by itself, in itself.

Self is what gives breath to life. You need not search for It, It is here. You are that through which you would search. You are what you are looking for! And that is all it is. Only Self is.
