W ithout a true Guru, we cannot attain our intimate treasure.
Without the grace of the Guru, one cannot realize the Self
Contemplation and concentration,
devotion and worship, are all useless without the grace of the Guru.
Without the grace of the Guru, one moves like a blind man, floundering, falling into ditches as he wends his way.

All great men that have lived in bygone times,
All the Saints and Sages of old, have attained realization only by the power of the Guru.

In short,
Liberation can be attained only by the help of a Guru and in no other way.

D eath does not take power into account. Death does not take wealth into account. Death does not take fame into account. Death does not say this is a King; Death does not say this is an Emperor. Death does not say this is a learned man. Death does not say this is a man of higher caste … Death does not take the gods into account. Death does not take the incarnations of God into account …
Gone are the people of great glory. Gone are the people who defied death for a long time. Gone are the people of great fame. Gone are the generals and all their spoils. Gone are the sons of noble families. The protectors of men have all passed away. The great teachers and philosophers have passed away. Gone are those who wielded a sword. Gone are those who have given in charity. Gone are those who have protected the people. Gone are the great assemblies of men. Gone are all the scholars; gone are all the renunciants …

All those are gone, says Ramdasa. Only those who have realized the Self, and become one with Him, have remained.

B rahman is more spotless than the sky.
It is formless and vast.
It extends above all heavens.
It exists beyond all worlds.
It occupies the smallest part of the universe.
It is quite near to us and yet it is hidden.
We live in it and yet we do not know it.

Wherever you cast your glance,
it is before you.
You in fact see within it.
It is both inside and outside.
Where we feel it is not,
it immediately manifests itself
Whatever object we take in hand
it is nearer to us than that.

Ramdasa says,
Only one who has had the spiritual experience
can know this secret.

B rahman is before all things.
It fills the whole universe.
Nothing compares to its purity.
In all the heavens, in the celestial worlds, from the far reaches of the earth, it fills every nook and cranny.
It fills all this space at once.
It touches all and abides in all.
It cannot be soiled by clay.
It cannot be carried away by flood.
Simultaneously, it is before us and behind us.
Simultaneously, it is to our right and to our left.
Simultaneously, it is above and below.

As soon as we begin to be aware of it, we forget it.
But as soon as we forget it, it comes within the ken of our consciousness …

When we try to realize it, it cannot be realized.
When we try to leave it, it cannot be left.
We are connected with Brahman forever, and nothing can break this connection.
