Sri Sri Babathakur Teachings

I have no mission at all, yet My only mission, the missionless mission, is to spread out this ‘Science of Oneness’, ‘Adhyatma Vidya’, to the people of the world, irrespective of caste, creed, sect, faith, religion, etc., without any sense of restriction or limitation, just like the luminous function of the sun which itself remains unattached by all objects of the creation that it illumines.

Consider
Your house to be Ashram
Your body to be temple
Your mind to be priest
Your Self to be Ishta
Wisdom to be your Realization
Knock, knock the heart door, the door will open and all diversities will disappear with the dawn of Self-knowledge.
Enlighten yourself with light of Oneness and gradually you will be illuminated. Sri Sri Babathakur
