Knowledge of What?

Swami Vivekananda

#. You are pure already. If you think you are free, free you are this moment; and if you think you are bound, bound you will be. This is a very bold statement...It may frighten you now, but when you think over it, and realise it in your own life, then you will come to know that what I say is true.

#. ...supposing that freedom is not your nature, by no manner of means can you become free. Supposing you were free and in some way you lost that freedom, that shows that you were not free to begin with. Had you been free, what could have made you lose it?

#. Various clouds of various colours come before the sky. They remain there for a minute and then pass away. It is the cloud that is changing. So you are always perfect, eternally perfect.

#. You are in all, and you are all. Whom to avoid, and whom to take? You are the all in all. When this knowledge comes, delusion immediately vanishes.

Om, May there be Peace in Heaven,
May there be Peace in the Sky,
May there be Peace in the Earth,
May there be Peace in the Water,
May there be Peace in the Plants,
May there be Peace in the Trees,
May there be Peace in the Gods in the various Worlds,
May there be Peace in Brahman,
May there be Peace in All,
May there be Peace Indeed within Peace,
Giving Me the Peace which Grows within Me,
Om, Peace, Peace, Peace.

(Shanti Mantra of Upanishad)

Preserve Nature,
And Nature will preserve Us,
Simplify Life,
And make the Nature thrive,
Plant Trees,
And make our planet Green.
