Vision of Oneness
|E82||Man Is Born to Remove the Wonder
Sitting with a small group gathered by the river, Swamiji informs us that a human being wants to resolve the mystery of who is that who is wonder-ing. As long as man accepts the body existence, he is trying to get satis-faction from the incomplete actions of the mind and senses. And because Oneness or “I” is all-permeating, it is hidden from the senses. If you can hear that “I am” was never born, then that which comes in the deep sleep can be known in the waking state. When a human being examines, he has the possibility to open to the Self and enjoy the sense of Oneness.

|E78||Samyak Darshan, Vision of Oneness
Swamiji delves into an exploration of two types of knowledge. One type is asamyak or body-knowledge, which is not very satisfying because it is always changing. The other is samyak, which is the knowledge of I that is real, permanent, and ancient like the sky. When human vision is turned towards his own nature, he turns into pure knowingness, so subtle and fine that it permeates even the sky. Swamiji emphasizes that study of this is a must at all times and in all circumstances. Body-knowledge builds the idea of victory and defeat, life and death. For I there is no such struggle. Swamiji leads the participants into a beautiful meditation that radiates the space of which he speaks. Friends visiting from Delhi join Swamiji on the veranda of a guest house, looking out at stunning views of the mountains.

|E45||Oneness Is the Source of All that There Is
At the end of the Kaisdhaar road Swamiji finds a small plateau, 6,000 ft. high amidst tall devdhaar trees, overlooking the whole Kullu valley. He organizes a picnic and names the location Kullu Kailash. He speaks of how each man is in need of the knowledge that he will never die. Those with the enquiry and the one with the answer make perfect company. He praises those who have offered themselves to the Self, not wanting to remain victims of the illusory ego. But it is a personal experiment and one must take the time to become quiet on the level of the senses. The answer, the Source, most assuredly will come and you will be established in the Wit-ness Self, Saakshee. Then it will be clear that world is That, all is That and That is Oneness!

|C25||Aykrasta, Aykras, Oneness, Life, Love, Knowledge, Pure, Freedom, Here and Now, Forever Self
Swamiji speaks in a meditative voice with his eyes closed throughout the entire talk. He asks, Who speaks and who listens? Space is speaking, Space is listening, and whether speaking or listening that Space is One-ness, Knowingness, the Source. Again and again he describes what he means when he uses the word “space” and what the mind tends to under-stand. When a human being hears the word “air,” he makes the meaning of a breeze or a storm, but the Realized One always knows “air” to be Space. This talk is very meditative and a superb description of Space.

|B18||Sense of Oneness Is Realization
Swamiji refers to the winter solstice, and then concentrates on the exami-nation of how one creates the sense of reality in both the dream and waking states, and then forgets that he himself created it. Ahankar is the forgetting power or the covering power that causes one to miss one’s own source as pure consciousness and then believe the knowledge of the senses that says, “I am a body.” Kalyani and Veena ask questions about the ahankar, and Swamiji further explains that ahankar does not exist. In essence, this is a superb talk about the nature of ahankar.
