(IPA: [ d̪r̩ʂʈi ]; Sanskrit: दृष्टि; IAST:dṛṣṭi), or focused gaze, is a means for developing concentrated intention. It relates to the fifth limb of yoga (pratyahara) concerning sense withdrawal,as well as the sixth limb dharana relating to concentration.
Our own self-realization is the greatest service we can render the world.
Happiness is your nature. It is not wrong to desire it. What is wrong is seeking it outside when it is inside.
The question 'Who am I?' is not really meant to get an answer. The question 'Who am I?' is meant to dissolve the questioner.
Self inquiry directly leads to Self-realization by removing obstacles. It is not the oral repetition of words but is searching by means of a deeply introverted mind wherefore the “I” springs. The greatest obstacle to enlightenment is getting past your delusion that you are not already enlightened.
You are always the Self. You are not the mind.The Self is the Heart.
The grace of the Guru is like an ocean. If one comes with a cup he will only get a cupful. Liberated Being can be reached only by "dying"; but such dying does not consist in destruction of the body; one should understand that true death is the extinction of the ideas "I" and “mine.”
The experience of Self is only love, which is seeing only love, hearing only love, feeling only love, tasting only love and smelling only love, which is bliss.
Nearly all mankind is more or less unhappy because nearly all do not know the true Self. Real happiness abides in Self-knowledge alone.
All else is fleeting.

Advaita has no way that can be spoken. Those who cross swords with Advaita cross swords with illusions of their own making
