416 – Knowing the Lord

The Chandogya Upanishad says that Bhuma is a celebration of the auspicious qualities of the Supreme One. When Bhuman is seen and heard, nothing else is seen or heard. When Bhuman is known, nothing else is known. Swaroopoham refers to realization of truth. Love and bhakti are within us. Pursuit of Bhakti with sincerity and genuineness is essential.

Cup of Bliss. Swami Sivananda Saraswati.

Sorrow touches me not, pain affects me not,
All joy, all bliss I am,
Eternal satisfaction I am.
The silvery moon, the brilliant sun are my eyes.
The rivers are my veins, the stars, mountains
Herbs, trees and plants, the Vedas, the Devas,
Are my expression, my breath.
My exhalation is this universe,
My inhalation is dissolution,
The world is my body, all bodies are mine.
All hands, ears and eyes are mine,
The fire is my mouth, the wind is my breath,
Energy and time proceed from me,
All beings throb in me, all hearts pulsate in me,
Causation I am, all quarters I am,
Quarters are my garment.
All time is now, all distance is here,
I fill all space, where can I move?
No space to move, infinite I am,
Unconditioned I am,
Bhuma I am, Bhumananda, Swaroopoham.

Please read it slowly and close your eyes after every sentence.
