Book Sale: Value of Values – Swami Dayananda

20200420_080152

I’m getting ready to move yet again and I have a massive book collection I’m tired of carting around.  It’s time to lighten the load so I’m getting rid of some great books I’ve already read.  

Next up is “Value of Values” by Swami Dayananda.  With his usual wit and clarity, Swami Dayananda explains 20 values from Chapter 13 of the Bhagavad that are key to enlightenment.   This book is in Like New condition with completely clean pages and no marks on the spine or cover. 

This book is available on Amazon  for 33 to 115 dollars.  You can buy it from me on Ebay for 24.99, where other sellers are listing it for between 62 and 200 dollars. 

Currently, I’m not shipping outside of the U.S. because of the shipping costs.  But if you’re willing to pay extra, Contact Me directly and we’ll work out the details.

Steady Wisdom: 108 Verses On Changing My Thinking

DAY 106

In these words I’ve proclaimed the vision of the highest reality, the supreme conclusion of Vedanta.  If a man becomes convinced of it, he is liberated.  Like space, he is no longer tainted by activity in this world.
-Shankara (Upadesha Sahasri 10:14, Metrical)
Meditation

I have seen the vision of the highest reality and it is, “I am brahman.”  Now that this is clear, I understand that I have always been free and I will always be free.  The illusory body-mind and its activities in the equally illusory world appear in me like objects appearing in space.  Similar to the way that space is never tainted, divided or changed in any way by the objects that appear in it, I am never tainted, divided or changed in any way when the body-mind and the world appear in me.  OM.

Steady Wisdom: 108 Verses On Changing My Thinking

DAY 101

I’m not the knower, the known or knowledge.  I’m beyond the speech, mind and intellect.  I’m immortal consciousness, ever the same like space. 
-Avadhuta Gita 3:17
Meditation

I am not known by the intellect (knower) as an object of knowledge.  I cannot be accurately described by speech, even with words such as “immortal consciousness.”  At best all I can say is that I am like space, that which accommodates all qualities and distinctions equally while itself being utterly free of all qualities and distinctions.  OM.

Steady Wisdom: 108 Verses On Changing My Thinking

DAY 94

I am indeed in all beings, and all beings are in me. Knowing this, there is nothing to be renounced, accepted or destroyed. 
-Ashtavakra Sahmita 6:4
Meditation

I am brahman, the essence of everyone and everything.  There are no others but there is also no individual self.  There are no enemies and yet, there are no friends either.  There is no world but there is also no nothingness.  I am one alone, free of all dualistic opposites and I am perfect as I am.  Therefore, what is there to be renounced, accepted or destroyed?  OM.

Steady Wisdom: 108 Verses On Changing My Thinking

DAY 93

For me there is no mental action, good or bad.  For me there is no physical action, good or bad.  For me there is no verbal action, good or bad.  I am immortal consciousness, beyond the senses.
-Avadhuta Gita 1:8
Meditation

I am immortal consciousness.  I am that which equally “reveals” all mental, physical and verbal actions, whether they be good or bad.  Just as the sun is never touched by the good or bad objects that it illuminates, I am never affected by the good or bad actions that I “illuminate.” OM.
