Cloud1964126Sheath or cloud is one of three hindrances to meditation.
Cloud1964168Cloud or sheath obscures connection of Atman within and without. Meditation dissolves cloud.
Cloud1964171Fifth step of ladder - attachments drop away and clouds vanish - insight comes.
Cloud1964177-178Impurities in Buddhi have two causes: one is the filth or cloud or mist and the other is its own mobility. True Knowledge removes the filth or cloud and meditation stills it.
Cloud1964188Realised Man is trying to remove the cloud of ignorance. The Self is itself real.
Cloud1964189Knowledge and devotion both needed to break cloud of ignorance - can't just leave it to the Absolute.
Cloud1964197The natural state of the Self is Sattvic. We try to undo the cloud and the impurities which surround it and which make it look multifarious and Rajasic.
Cloud1964198Ignorance is the cause of the cloud surrounding Buddhi.
Cloud1964201-202The barrier between you and the realisation of Self are the things which we have termed as ‘cloud’. Both the System and the knowledge are aimed only at breaking those clouds.
Cloud1970402Dissolution of cloud – to reveal Atman.
Cloud1972570D.S. In the last stage of meditation there is just pure consciousness which has been there all the time like the sun - you have just removed the clouds.
Code19616Proper code of life: do as you would be done by.

Common Man1970397Teacher takes common man towards Absolute and brings glory of Absolute into society.
Common Man1975725When one speaks to the common man, the knowledge has to be very simple.
Commun­ication196241Disciple receiving messages through cosmic consciousness like radio waves.
Commun­ication196260Disciple's relationship with Realised Man - comparison with good and bad radios.
Commun­ication196499Communication with Realised Man not only through personal talk and correspondence.
Commun­ication1964110Three ways of communication: the word, subtle and causal.
Commun­ication1964118Relationship of servant, disciple and master. A disciple is more than a servant.
Commun­ication1964170When pure Buddhi is full of Sattva, communication becomes possible with the master at a distance and thoughts can be relayed and satisfactory messages received.
Commun­ication1965224Unity of conscience with the Realised Man is subject to levels.
Commun­ication1965252-253If disciple is working correctly he can communicate on subtle level with Realised Man in time of need.
Commun­ication1968340-342H.H. explains communication on subtle level.
Commun­ication1968368Constant and regular practice of meditation establishes familiarity and allows union with Atman. Example of cultivating new friendship.
Commun­ication1968371Relationship with H.H. on subtle and causal levels is not governed by space and time.
Commun­ication1971511-512Communication presupposes experience, example of grains of salt being dissolved into sea.
Commun­ication1978829Subtle communication through intensity of meditation. See story of Guru whose disciple was caught in a whirlpool (2) on page 829.
Commun­ication1979905With true love which is beyond love of the physical body, communication with beloved flows.
Commun­ication19851005Communication with Realised Man after death through purified Antahkaran is possible but H.H. would prefer disciples to contact him through his teachings. See story of The man who told H.H. he could call up spirits of the dead on page 1005.
Commun­ication19881018Communication with teacher after death is through the knowledge he has given. The spiritual relationship remains constant because the Atman is the same everywhere - pure and One.
Commun­ication19911059On path to unity in the Study Society senior people should open their hearts and minds to each other. If there is a selfish attitude in the heart, pretences will abound.
CompanySee: Good Company
Complete­ness1964163-164Meditation leads to a feeling of completeness.
Complete­ness1965250Seek completeness of oneself and follow one's best desire.
Complete­ness1966290Jaiswal explains Sanskrit term Poorna and its roots.
Concentra­tion1978832Dharana (concentration), Dhyana (meditation) and Samadhi and three stages - all workings of Sattva, just a difference of degree.
Concentra­tion1978845Concentration and Gunas. None in Tamas, there can be some in Rajas but also some disturbance. Concentration in Sattva leads either to good work or to stillness.
Concentra­tion1978846It is Chitta which concentrates and which is affected by Mal and Vikshepa.
Concentra­tion1978847When there is connection between Vyashti and Samashti due to concentration, then even things you don't know 'dawn' on you.
Concentra­tion1979871-872Second stage of knowing (Manana) - pondering and reflection.
Confidence1964179-180He is blessed who has confidence (after meditation). It is a grace. It is the outcome of all our efforts on the way and mercy of God.
Confidence1979878Confidence and faith is another method of realisation.
Conflict1968349Conflict arises from attachment. Attachment is a sort of deformed love.
Conflict1973607Forces of good and evil live in all of us including saints. Their co-existence leads to conflict.
Conflict1974679The noise of the conflict between SES and the Study Society should not reach H.H.'s ears.
Conflict1976743Conflict in the mind during meditation.
Conflict1976747Conflict between Buddhi and Manas.
Conflict1979896If friction leads to unity it is discrimination and can be useful, but if not, it is a waste of energy and consciousness. Conflict multiplies conflict and leads to destruction.
Conflict19851003Jaiswal explains to H.H. the divisions occurring within the Society following Dr Roles's death.
Conflict19911058Causes of conflict are greed, power and pride. Every greed is concealed by beautiful speech and deception.
Conflict19911059Interested parties in the Study Society should seek the judgement of a wise, impartial, experienced person to resolve the conflict. All should accept the resolution.
Conflict19921072If due to hate, one is set on strife and separation at any cost, then even the scriptures and wisdom cannot help.
Conflict19931086Those who work on the spiritual side have never been frightened off by any confrontation but take every attack as an opportunity for further development and re-examination.
ConflictSee also: War
Confusion1972595Common man is usually confused by the claims of the different ways. Then there is the need for enquiry to get everything clear for himself. See story of Blind people and elephant (1) on page 595.
Confusion1977816Systematic knowledge and Satsang will bring people to understand the meaning of life.
Conjunction1965253-254Conjunction of planets and effect on people – people who have reached a certain stage on the ladder are free of planetary laws.
Connection with H.H.19618R. reports that a firm connection has been established.
Connection with H.H.196275Working in a School, there will be nothing to hinder development once you have come into connection with the fully Realised Man.
Connection with H.H.1964116If a man is awake it is not necessary for him to come very close to the Realised Man; he has the power to receive it from a distance as well.
Connection with H.H.1964202The feeling of separateness is only in the physical, material world. In the conscious world there is nothing different and nothing separate one from another, everything is One.
Connection with H.H.1965247Photo of H.H. can help to keep connection alive.
Connection with H.H.1982986H.H. explains there are two types of guidance. He has given us all the knowledge we need, but there is still a need for mental and spiritual care. This will always be available.
Connection with H.H.19881016If really engaged on spiritual work, Study Society will maintain continuous relationship with H.H.
Connection with H.H.19881018Door is open to people with Sattvic Buddhi and devotion. But if the desire for physical presence is motivated even remotely by ego or personality then it is inadvisable.
Connection with H.H.19931087It is essential that all doubts and questions are resolved. Any that are unresolved should in future be raised through Mr Jaiswal.
Conscience1965224The domain of conscience is not subject to space-time.
Conscience1976747Inner voice of conscience. When Sattva predominates, Buddhi gives good advice.
Conscience1976781H.H. explains the equivalent concept - Samskar giving you guidance. Can be right or wrong depending on whether Samskars are pure or impure.
Conscience19851007-1008If your Antahkaran is pure, the message from conscience will stand up for everyone in world - not just your own son. See story of Father and son at station on page 1007.

Conscious­ness1964156Five elements make up the macrocosm. The difference in macrocosm and microcosm is in weight, size and form but not in consciousness. In consciousness they are one and the same.
Conscious­ness1964171Insight develops when attachments fall away.
Conscious­ness1964188The creation is Consciousness, but we think it very coarse because of illusion in ignorance.
Conscious­ness1964193Consciousness is charged with energy. Mantra links Atman to Absolute.

Conscious­ness1967304Awakening with constant Sattva, good essence, true knowledge and meditation can lead to higher consciousness.
Conscious­ness1967305Higher levels of consciousness can occur through use of Buddhi. Occasionally by chance or necessity a wave of Sattva lifts up consciousness.
Conscious­ness1967319Inner Circle works towards growth in cosmic consciousness through certain people.
Conscious­ness1968338Consciousness and matter - the two predominant factors of creation. Material world owes its existence to consciousness and consciousness can only be manifested by matter.

Conscious­ness1970386H.H.'s definition: power to feel.
Conscious­ness1970422All states can be experienced in this body.
Conscious­ness1970423Consciousness cannot be related to substance. All substances take form through consciousness.
Conscious­ness1970441Everything reflects Chaitanya (consciousness) and nothing is lifeless. An object like a tree can teach you much and bring you face to face with God.
Conscious­ness1970471Changing states due to Gunas but observer who sees all as 'passing show' always remains the same. See letter on pages 466-467.
Conscious­ness1972558The five states of consciousness (Samadhi, waking, dreaming, deep sleep, unconscious) belong to the creative art of Absolute. Each state is useful - there is nothing to choose between them.
Conscious­ness1972570D.S. The real test of whether you have reached the deepest level of meditation - pure consciousness - is if you can be like that in the active world.
Conscious­ness1972572D.S. It is only God, super-consciousness, that is always with us.
Conscious­ness1972580D.S. God is our own house. Our own Self is pure consciousness. You do not require a licence to go back to your own house.
Conscious­ness1972581D.S. If you identify with consciousness the connection with external or internal senses will be broken, but the body/mind machine will carry on as usual.
Conscious­ness1972587D.S. Direct your attention not to the form, but to the Consciousness from which it is made. See story of Gold image and gold shoes on pages 586-587.
Conscious­ness1972590D.S. Consciousness always remains the same - it is just the clothing that is different. So remove the clothing.
Conscious­ness1972593D.S. Pure Consciousness is present throughout all three states - only the limitations may be different and these are ignorance.
Conscious­ness1973625Journey of individual to universal.

Conscious­ness1978860Self-consciousness is there whether experienced or not. Analogy of waves and deep sea.
Conscious­ness1979899Chaitanya which is related to Chitta, is consciousness. Chaitanya is in the region of the solar plexus and not related to the brain.
Conscious­ness1979900Consciousness works through all parts of the Antahkaran - not specifically through the brain.
Conscious­ness1979901Desires are a spark of consciousness. Sankalpa names the object of desire, Buddhi approves. If it is not approved it is withdrawn and goes back to unmanifest consciousness.
Conscious­ness1979902Our body can hold a certain measure of consciousness. It is the purity of consciousness that is important, not the amount: Ganges water in a pot of whatever size is the same.
Conscious­ness1979914If you do conscious work there will be good results. Even if Samskar prevents good result immediately, it will bear fruit later.
Conscious­ness1979918-919Pure consciousness is power from which comes knowledge and bliss. There is nothing wrong in pure consciousness. Right and wrong is purely relative.
Conscious­ness1980969Two aspects of manifestation - the physical and subtle elements, and consciousness which pervades all of them.
Conscious­ness19851008Consciousness is reflected in Antahkaran. If Antahkaran is Sattvic, consciousness will be reflected more clearly.
Conscious­ness19891048-1049Consciousness is evolving in new ways all the time. If there could be an end to originality in knowledge it would not be conscious.
Conscious­ness19931084Consciousness permeates body like fire in ball of iron. Body is an instrument. Example of sound and microphone.
Conscious­ness19931085Is not subject to birth or growth or decay or death. It only seems so because we make the wrong association.
Consistency196239The way Realised Man moves and speaks, expresses the dignity of the Atman.
Consistency1970405Always love to speak the Truth, so there is consistency between what one thinks, says and does.
Consistency1971510Pull of the body away from consistency. Make use of Buddhi. Role of School.
Consistency1974631Whatever one says one should do; whatever one thinks one should say; whatever one feels one should express.
Consistency1974638In H.H.'s teaching on consistency, the order of action - feel, speak, do - is essential. Analogous to highest triad (NOC) in Mr Ouspensky's system. See story of Rama talls Lakshman he is destined to marry Sita on page 638.
Consistency1974653R. asks re shloka on consistency. H.H. explains it's from Manu Smriti.
Consistency1974662Unity of thought, word and deed opens heart.
Consistency1974671Translation of prayer by Tulsi Das.
Consistency1977807When Chitta is open to the Absolute, promptings come from Atman. These affect first the causal body then subtle and physical bodies, giving consistency of thoughts, words and actions.
Consistency1979902Consistency of behaviour and action only possible by greater consistency and purity of Buddhi.
Consistency19911057Need for unity and consistency between thought, word and deed. Thoughts, concepts, ideas, desires, aims, resolutions, ambitions must be spoken out exactly as they arise.
Contacts1982986Mental and spiritual guidance from H.H. always available. It may be necessary to have longer intervals between visits and shorter visits, but the door is not closed.
Contacts1982997If necessary to clarify any points discussed, MA and RG are welcome to contact H.H. by letter or in person.
Contacts19891044Establish as many contacts as possible and provide them all plentifully with the knowledge H.H. has given. Offer it with love and sympathy, without any call for conversion.
Contemp­lation1979871-872Three stages of knowing (study, reflecting, contemplating).
Contemp­lation1979929Reflect again and again on teaching to remove Samskar.
Control1970452Discipline to gain control over senses and mind.
Control1972580-581D.S. We don't like to be controlled by others. Where there is knowledge there is power. See story of Lion cub and sheep. Further explanation on page 581.
Control1973611Example of two ways of controlling a river by a dam or a canal, and control of our thoughts.
Corruption1974650If our ego or Ahankar supposes we are the Master and makes us try to dominate and rule everything, this is Vikriti - corruption. See story of Rama procures Ravana's liberation from Ahankar on page 650.
Cosmic Conscious­ness1967319Growth in cosmic consciousness possible only because there is a need.
Cosmos1978822Sun and planets and corresponding elements in human body.
Cosmos1978845Samashti is the cosmos. Param-Atman, the God of the cosmos has three great qualities: omniscience, omnipresence, omnipotent.
Cosmos1979875H.H. explains concept of Advaita - cosmos and ourselves are One. We know it by reason but in practice we have to act as if there were two.
Cosmos1979883Relation (ratio) of stages in creation 1:10. Only three can be seen with the naked eye - fire, water and earth.
Cosmos1979924'As in the individual body so in the whole universe'.
Cosmos1979937Vyashti and Samashti, remembering relationship brings power - forgetting disconnects source of power.
Cosmos1979939Relationship of cosmos and individual - body represents Earth, mind represents Moon, seeing - the Sun, intellect - Brahma etc.
Cosmos1979951Individual meditates about the cosmos, and the cosmos meditates about the individual.
Cosmos1982995Universe contains thousands of cosmoses, but Absolute has no end and no beginning.

Creation1977816Creation is for knowledge and bliss, and for enjoyment by right ways, means and actions.
Creation1978822Body and cosmos, planets in orbit etc.
Creation1979912The world is the artistic creation of Absolute. It is full of variety just as a play must have variety for people to enjoy it. Some actors may be crying, some laughing. We must be detached. See story of Brahma's holiday on page 913.
Creation1980969Process of creation in universe in answer to Q. re stillness. Example of cold and boiling water.
Creation19891039All creation is born, kept going and disappears in stillness. It is not only that which is present but also that which is not present.

Creator1979883Creation was started with the 'Word', and ultimately gets absorbed in that Word.
Creator1979903-904Beauty of creation experienced through Sattva. This feeling of unity slips away because of Rajas and Tamas. Spend more time in natural places. Example of Indian President.
