Yoga Vasistha has been one of the favorite works of spiritual seekers in India for several centuries. Its special appeal lies in its completely rational approach, and in its presentation of Vedanta as a philosophy to close the abyss between the secular and the sacred, action and contemplation, in human life, through a broad and elevated spirituality. This monumental scripture is the greatest help for spiritual awakening and direct experience of Truth. This is true. If this is what you want, you are welcome to the Vasistha Yoga. A frequently recurring expression in this scripture is kakataliya’-a crow perches on the coconut tree and at that same moment a ripe coconut falls. The two unrelated events seem to be related in time and space, although there is no causal relationship. This is life. Such is the ‘creation’. But the mind caught in its own trap of logic asks why, invents a “why” and a “why” to satisfy itself, conveniently ignoring the inconvenient questions that still haunt an intelligent mind. Vasistha demands the direct observation of the mind, its movement, its notions, its reasoning, the supposed cause and the projected result, and even the observer, the observed and the observation, and the realization of its indivisible unity as infinite consciousness.
Easy to read and wiith a deep message.
