Free will and Destiny last as long as the body lasts. But wisdom transcends both, for the Self is beyond knowledge and ignorance.

"There has been evil and sorrow since the beginning of creation. You ask why the rishis do not put matters right. The Vedas tell of the asuras (demons) who existed since earliest times. There is a force of opposition in the world which produces strife and suffering but it works to make man grow and evolve. It is a force in nature which co-exists along with the good."

The boat may remain in water, but if water enters the boat it will bring great catastrophe. [Likewise] a man may live in the world, but if the world enters [the mind of] the man the whole life will be miserable.

('Guru Vachaka Kovai', v. 821)

[Sri Muruganar: It is not the world itself but only the attachment towards the world which constitutes samsara-bandha [the bondage of mundane...

O man, like a parrot waiting expectantly for the silk cotton fruit to ripen, you persist in your sufferings, believing this world appearance to be real and enjoyable; if the world is real simply because it appears to your senses, then a mirage would be water.

“First one sees the Self as objects, then one sees the Self as void, then one sees the Self as Self, only in this last there is no seeing because seeing is being.”

Q. If Self be itself conscious, why am I not aware even now?

A. Your present knowledge is due to ego and is only relative. Relative knowledge requires a subject and object, whereas the awareness of Self is absolute and requires no object. Remembrance similarly is relative. It requires an object to be remembered and another to remember. When there are no two things, who is to remember whom?...

Looking at the shadow on the water it is found to be shaking. Can anyone stop the shaking of the shadow? If it should cease to shake, you should not look on the water. Look at your Self. Therefore do not look to the ego. The ego is the I-thought. The true ‘I’ is the Self. [Talk 146]

Discriminating and knowing well that all the sufferings that come by prarabdha in his life are sent to him by God’s Grace in order to make his mind stronger and thereby save him, let an aspirant bear with them patiently as tapas without being alarmed even in the least.

Of all the many thousand names, none is so truly apt, so really beautiful, as this name [‘I’ or ‘am’] for God, who abides in the heart without thought.
