Cover of teh book: Yogi Padmanabha Bhagavathar: a biography by Santhiprasad

 “Some existing and withdrawing by virtue of their innocence and love; by transcending their dreams and fantasies, beliefs and concepts reach the pure state of intelligence; and cross beyond to the ultimate source, the Silence, from where everything comes  into being.  Some do not dare to cross the illusions created by the mind. They want to be in the realm of the mind as it is something that they are familiar with. The realm of the unknown is not known to the mind. Before one crosses the known to the unknown the mind will be extremely potential and it could do whatever it wants to make the individual feel that it is the ultimate state.  At this stage when things start to manifest one may  be fascinated and will unknowingly resort to a different path of action of amassing wealth, power and followers. Some will get into the struggle for generating fame and loose the innate humility, humbleness and the  possibility of ultimate integration and waste the rare chance of being here on this planet to know the mind fully and cross it to establish oneness with the source that is within”.
