Don’t depend on anything for Freedom
In this extract from the 26th of August 1993 Darpan tells Papaji that despite having had many ecstatic glimpses of an expanded reality, they were all temporary and asks, “How is freedom realized permanently?” Papaji speaks about the difference between ecstatic states induced by LSD or other drugs and freedom, “Freedom is something else. It is always, permanently, residing in your heart. Don’t depend on anything and simply keep quiet. Check the tendencies of the mind and do not cling to physical form. Self is always with you, already free!”
Darpan offers some harmonics singing and Papaji explains how chanting OM is a way to empty the mind and prepares one for silent contemplation.
