What’s the sound of one hand clapping?

That’s the sound of success.

If you want more of it,

you have to hear more of This.

You have to hear the Silence beyond the world clapping,

beyond the desire you hold of hearing the world clapping for you.

You have to hear God clapping.

He already is.

He’s always been clapping.

You keep bowing. 

I Love You

I Am You


“Don’t sing the sadness anymore.” – Rumi 

“The Divine Mother revealed to me in the Käli temple that it was She who had become everything. She showed me that everything was full of Consciousness. The Image was Consciousness, the altar was Consciousness, the water-vessels were Consciousness, the door-sill was Consciousness, the marble floor was Consciousness -all was Consciousness. “found everything inside the room soaked, as it were, in Bliss-the Bliss of Satchidananda. I saw a wicked man in front of the Kāli temple; but in him also I saw the Power of the Divine Mother vibrating. “That was why I fed a cat with the food that was to be offered to the Divine Mother. I clearly perceived that the Divine Mother Herself had become everything-even the cat. The manager of the temple garden wrote to Mathur Babu saying that I was feeding the cat with the offering intended for the Divine Mother. But Mathur Babu had insight into the state of my mind. He wrote back to the manager: ‘Let him do whatever he likes. You must not say anything to him.” – Sri Ramakrishna 

“Everything is clapping today. Light, sound, motion, all movement.” – Hafiz 

“Don’t sing the sadness anymore. Call out that you have been given both the answer and an understanding of the question.” – Hafiz 

“If I meet a wolf, he turns into a kind friend. If I am lowered into a well, it becomes a garden. A stony miser comes to me and starts giving his wealth away. Don’t offer me money. I have a teacher whose fragrance brings statues to life.” -Hafiz

“Jesus promised to send to his disciples the Comforter, the Holy Ghost, to speed them on their way to Self-realization. An advanced devotee can hear the sound of Aum in his body and can see its light in his spiritual eye. After he has become acquainted with these two limited manifestations, in the bodily sound and in his spiritual eye, then, by further spreading of his consciousness in Omnipresence, he sees his small spherical eye of light expand into a cosmic sphere whose luminosity conflagrates the whole universe. Similarly, as the devotee listens to Pranava, the holy sound of Aum, he forgets the restrictions of the human body and of space and can feel the Aum of his body vibrating into a perception of his cosmic body. He feels his consciousness vibrating everywhere with the ever expanding Aum sound. In ecstasy he suddenly sees his body as an atom or cell in the cosmic body.All aspiring yogis who would be performers of the inner holy rites of consuming restlessness and delusion in the fire of ecstasy, givers of unconditional devotion to God, and cultivators of true perception through Self-mastery, must begin their progress on the spiritual path by first chanting Aum, and then communing with Aum by hearing this sacred Word-symbol of God present right within the body-temple.” – Yogananda
