    Vigyan Bhairav Tantra, Vol 2


    CHAPTER 1


    Be a witness not a judge
    25 March 1973 pm in Bombay, India

    AT THE START OF SNEEZING, DURING FRIGHT, IN ANXIETY, ABOVE A CHASM, FLYING
    IN BATTLE, IN EXTREME CURIOSITY, AT THE BEGINNING OF HUNGER, AT THE END OF
    HUNGER, BE UNINTERRUPTEDLY AWARE.
    THE PURITY OF OTHER TEACHINGS IS AN IMPURITY TO US. IN REALITY, KNOW NOTHING
    AS PURE OR IMPURE.


    Life is a paradox. To reach near you have to travel far, and that which is already achieved you have
    to achieve again. Nothing is lost. Man remains natural, man remains pure, man remains innocent;
    it is only that he forgets it. The purity is not disturbed, the innocence is not destroyed. Only a deep
    forgetfulness is there.

    That which is to be achieved you are already. In essence, nothing new is to be achieved. You
    have only to discover, uncover, unfold that which is already the case; hence, both the difficulty of
    spiritual endeavor and the simplicity. I say ”both”.... It is very simple if you can understand, but it is
    very difficult because you have to understand that which you have completely forgotten, that which
    is so obvious that you never become aware of it, that which is just like your breathing. It goes on
    continuously, uninterruptedly, but because it goes on continuously, uninterruptedly, you need not be
    aware of it. Your awareness is not needed; it is not a basic requirement. You can forget it or you can
    remember it: it is a choice.

    SANSARA and NIRVANA, the world and the liberated state of consciousness, are not two things –
    just two attitudes, just two choices. You can choose either. You can be in the world because of acertain attitude, and the same world becomes NIRVANA, the same world becomes absolute bliss,
    just by changing the attitude. You remain the same, everything remains the same; just a change
    of focus, a change of emphasis, a change of choice, is required. It is easy. Once absolute bliss is
    achieved, you will laugh about it. Once it is known, you will not be able to understand why you were
    missing it, how you could miss it. It was there always just waiting to be looked at, and it was yours.

    A buddha laughs. Anyone who achieves it laughs because the whole thing seems to be ridiculous.
    You were searching for something which was never lost. The whole effort was absurd. But this
    happens only when you have achieved it, so those who have achieved it say it is very simple. But
    those who have not achieved it, they say it is the most arduous thing, the most difficult – really, not
    simply difficult, but the most impossible thing.

    These methods which we will be discussing are told by someone who has achieved – remember
    this. They will look too simple, and they are. To our minds things so simple cannot be appealing –
    because if techniques are so simple and the abode is so near, if you are already in it, if techniques
    are so simple and the home is so near, you will look ridiculous to yourself. Then why are you
    missing it? Rather than feel the ridiculousness of your own ego, you will think that such simple
    methods cannot help.

    That is a deception. Your mind will tell you that these simple methods cannot be of any help –
    that they are so simple, they cannot achieve anything. To achieve divine existence, to achieve the
    absolute and the ultimate, how can such simple methods be used? How can they be of any help?
    Your ego will say that they cannot be of any help.
