"Thoughts are impediments to seeing your own face. Don't give rise to any thought, and discover who you are."
― H. W. L. Poonja


"What is purification of the mind? No thought. This thought-less mind, sattvic mind, no mind, can be called Consciousness itself. Self itself."
― H. W. L. Poonja


"If you address the mind with "Who are you?" it will disappear."
― H. W. L. Poonja


"Mind is nothing but thought. You can't separate thought itself from the mind."
― H. W. L. Poonja


"When we use the word "I", there is ego. Then there is the mind, then there is a body, then there are senses, then there are sense objects, and then all manifestation arises."
― H. W. L. Poonja


"Who is journeying for freedom? The one who is already free. Just get rid of the concept, "I am the body, separate from the source." You return to what you always were."
― H. W. L. Poonja


"Nothing arises without Self. All existence is one in one's own Self."
― H. W. L. Poonja


"Meditation is to effortlessly turn the mind toward that energy which energizes mind."
― H. W. L. Poonja


"The Silence that I speak about is neither meditating nor sitting quiet. The Silence that I speak about has nothing to do with meditation or talking or not talking because then the mind is still running about here and there and everywhere. What I mean by Silence is that should be no thought rising from the mind. No thought rising from your mind is Silence."
― H. W. L. Poonja


"Stillness of mind comes from giving up all attachments except that attachment to Self."
― H. W. L. Poonja


"When the mind is quiet, all is Self."
― H. W. L. Poonja


"When mind moves the world arises, so be still, throw away everything, and be free."

"Self is what you are. You are That Fathomlessness in which experience and concepts appear. Self is the Moment that has no coming or going. It is the Heart, Atman, Emptiness. It shines to Itself, by Itself, in Itself."
― H. W. L. Poonja


"Self is what gives breath to Life. You need not search for It, It is Here. You are That through which you would search. You are what you are looking for! And That is All it is".
― H. W. L. Poonja


"You are the unchangeable Awareness in which all activity takes place."
― H. W. L. Poonja


The one who follows the thought is also a thought! The one who follows the thought IS in thought. When you know that both are thoughts, you are home. You are not at home, you ARE home. Then allow thoughts to arise and allow them to be followed. You remain as That unmoved and unconcerned Being. This is the highest understanding.
― H. W. L. Poonja


We think we have to be a certain way because we have been taught to be a certain way. Actually the only truth is to keep quiet and see what happens from there. When I feel ill-tempered, when I feel sad, when I feel distant, it's just something that is happening. When I don't compare it to the past and project it into the future, then it's just something that is happening now. It's a way of dying now.
― H. W. L. Poonja


Whatever comes, let it come. What stays, let it stay. What goes, let it go.
― H. W. L. Poonja


If there is peace in your mind you will find peace with everybody. If your mind is agitated you will find agitation everywhere. So first find peace within and you will see this inner peace reflected everywhere else. You are this peace!
― H. W. L. Poonja


If you see the illusion you are enlightened, but if you think that you are enlightened you are in the illusion!
― H. W. L. Poonja


You are all lions – so go your own way. Do not walk the beaten path like sheep, one after another. Do not follow any path. Lions do not follow each other like sheep.
― H. W. L. Poonja


Thoughts are impediments to seeing your deepest nature.
Don't give rise to any thought, and discover who you are.
That ocean of eternal peace is you.
What is the difficulty that we suffer from?
It is that we seek peace elsewhere and do not experience that we are peace incarnate itself.
― H. W. L. Poonja


You have to simply become aware of the movement of the mind, which begins this endless trouble.
― H. W. L. Poonja


All that you are attached to, all that you love, all that you know, someday will be gone. Knowing this, and that the world is your mind which you create, play in, and suffer from, is known as discrimination. Discriminate between the Real and the Unreal, the known is unreal and will come and go so stay with the Unknown, the Unchanging, the Truth.
― H. W. L. Poonja


When mind is quiet, all is Self. When mind moves the world arises. So be Still, throw away everything and be Free.

It is all your desires that you see, when you think. But when your mind is quiet, without desire, you are complete and as wonderful as you have always been.

It is simple.
Follow this.

Know that what appears to be Love for an 'other' is really Love of Self because 'other' doesn't exist. So this innermost Love can be given to no 'other'. Love of friends is for the sake of Self, not for body to body. True love has no Lover or Beloved because all Love is Love of Self.
― H. W. L. Poonja


Reality is everywhere, and to find It 'you' must first disappear.
― H. W. L. Poonja



Something is happening because of silence, because of peace, because of silence; if your mind is silent, if your mind is quiet, there is God, there is silence, this is the silence that is contagious.
― H. W. L. Poonja


If you don't know, then it's all right. There need not be any expectations. If there are no expectations, then you are free. If you expect, then you are in bondage. Choose whatever you want. Expectations are never fulfilled.
― H. W. L. Poonja


I am your own self and the self of all beings that exist.
