The Five Steps to Self Realization
The four principles of Jnana Marga are:
The first principle
The whole universe is a projection of the mind.
Everything you see in this world, everything that happens in your life is a projection of your mind.
It has no substance, no value.
You are the creation of the universe.
The second principle
We do not prevail.
There is no substance in back of your existence.
You didn’t come from anything.
You were never born. You can never die.
You are no thing that you can ever imagine.
And your life as it appears does not exist.
The third principle
No thing that exists has an ego.
There is no ego to back anything up.
You have believed all of these years that you have an ego and that you have to get rid of it.
There is no ego to be gotten rid of.
If there is no ego there is nothing to do.
There is nothing to fear and there is nothing to fight.
The fourth principle
The understanding what self-realization is not.
You can never understand realization.
But you can understand what it is not.
Everything that exists is not.
When everything is gotten rid of, realization appears by itself.
They’re in the transcripts.
