Teachings of Yoga Vasishtam

Just as a steady boat, O Rama, is obtained from a boatman, so also the method of crossing the ocean of samsara is learnt by associating with great souls.The great remedy for the long-lasting disease of samsara is the enquiry, ‘Who am I? To whom does this samsara belong?,’ which entirely cures it. The Lord cannot be seen with the help of the sacred texts or the Guru. The self is seen by the Self alone with the pure intellect.Even the slightest thought immerses a man in sorrow; when devoid of all thoughts he enjoys imperishable bliss.Just as we experience the delusion of hundreds of years in a dream lasting an hour, so also we experience the sport of maya in our waking state.Yoga Vasishtam
