The Avatar in Us All

Pacific Northwest 2011


We all have the potential to be Avatars, as we all possess the inner Atman. The Atman in Hinduism is that core of life in absence of which the existence of the body itself gets negated. The Atman in Hinduism stands for our soul which resides in the heart within the body.

By and large, we tend to identify with our limited individuality or the ego body and human powers. This narrow minded viewpoint leaves us with constant struggle and desire. The true Avatar, and the potential Avatar, by contrast is always aware that he is one with God in  human form and therefore has full power of the Universe and beyond.

By negating the egocentric mind we put an end to our constant struggle, the should's in life and move towards neutral mind awakening the Atman or true self.

Some of the greatest sages of all time realized this and as a result their human form simply was God to assist and teach man how to find that higher being that dwells within. The following quotes are very powerful. Take your time to read them and digest the power within.





When goodness grows weak,
When evil increases,
I make myself a body.

In every age I come back
To deliver the holy,
To destroy the sin of the sinner
To establish righteousness
(Bhagavad Gita)
 
 
 "Once one is established in infinite consciousness,
one becomes silent and though knowing everything,
goes about as if he does not know anything

Though he might be doing a lot of things in several places,
to all outward appearances, he will remain as if he does nothing."

Nityananda
 
Today, let's make a point of finding our inner Avatar and let it shine.

Namaste,
