Scriptures and Truth

Amongst the battle of Scriptures and paths for becoming one with the Eternal, don't forget that you are "The Truth". It's no where else but inside you. Once the bliss is attained, you transcend from the Scriptures itself! Through Scriptures you cannot attain to truth. But if you attain to truth, you will understand the Scriptures. All Scriptures come from persons who have attained. Buddha once said, " You taste the ocean from anywhere, you will always find it salty." You taste it from the Bible, the Koran or the Bhagavad Gita, the taste is always the same. Scriptures cannot lead you. Infact, they are dead without you! You bring them to life after attaining the truth.
There a famous story about Lin Chi attaining enlightenment. Someone asked him about what was the first thing he did after attaining? He said I laughed and asked for a cup of tea! Because what else to do? It is already there. You are unnecessarily running here and there. You just have to come back to your home!
Don't get disheartened if you are confused or feel lost. You are on your own path in search which is there with you all the time. Don't lose hope! Your efforts will get you somewhere. You just have to try. To find your own universal truth, you are the only one who can make a path for yourself! Just keeping trying. I'm too!

  2. Well said! as all sentient being true eternal essence is pure, or in other words all beings are endowed with buddha nature, it is the ignorance that bar us from our own true essence, and more importantly it depends upon oneself to choose the path, no others will walk for us, as buddha said I have shown you the path, but now it is you who have to walk through it... so let's keep trying...
