"Self-realization is meant to ensure fulfilment for one’s own self. It is not reaching somewhere or getting at something external, like going to the peak of a mountain. The attainment is in dissolving the mind and intelligence, and getting into the very core of oneself. In other words, it is like multiplying everything with zero."

“A God-believing person is a believer in the concept of God. An atheist is also a believer, but in the concept of no-God. Both of them are believers. They believe in some concept of their mind. This prior belief stifles their enquiry. A seeker of ultimate Truth should start with no belief.” 

“Why do we look for a Creator of the world? Because, we find that everything in the world follows causality. The causality we see all around makes us think that there must be an ultimate ‘Cause’ (or Creator) behind the universe. That is, the concept of God is basically an “inference” from the causality we observe in the world.

“In fact, it is an invalid ‘extrapolation’ of material causality beyond its domain. Although everything we observe in the material world is related by causality, the Ultimate Truth, by definition, has to be beyond causality. It transcends duality.”
