"The power to promote and reward, as also to demote and punish the individual and his fate in this world, lies within his mind, its thoughts and feelings. No external agency is necessary to bring this infallible fruition. As the growth and development of a seed, an embryo, or a cell designed and preserved by its own inner makeup, here too the causal forces for what one rightly deserves lurk within one’s own invisible bosom."

Question:

Who am I?

Poojya Swamiji's answer:

Dear and blessed soul:

‘I’ is the one unchanging, substratum, of the whole existence, creation. It is superior to matter and energy, which are all inert. We know we are, we live, only because of the ‘I’. ‘I’ is Consciousness, which alone has the power to be conscious of others as well as itself.

As it is changeless since our birth, so it will be and was ever. Being so, that is the ultimate reality. It is existence, knowledge and bliss, all together. Like fire is heat and brilliance together.

To know this fact and truth is human life. Human alone has the power to know this.
