Who am I, inside out? (Srila B.A. Paramadvaiti Maharaj)

"We have to understand one thing. We don't really know who we are."
Gurumaharaj in arty clip from a lecture in Bulgaria, skillfully framing you. 


There is the day, and there is the night. Two different lives. And then each day is also a little different. And every night is also quite different.
Where do you really live?

Who are you really?


When you look in the mirror, you think you see somebody you know.
We have to understand one thing. In our normal life, we don't really know who we are.
We also don't take into consideration who we are.
We only look at the body. And we become worried about the body.

We are not the awakening, we are not the sleeping. We are the conscious soul. 
That soul which has an independent existence of this body.

The materialistic philosophy is beg, borrow or steal.
Get deed and enjoy life.
Eat, sleep and be merry. Beg, borrow or steal.
This is what our life nowadays is like.
Because we are in the age of Kali Yuga. 
This time is dominated by the spirit of exploitation. Rampant materialism.
And we are suffering from that. Because when people want to enjoy, they become crazy.
So if we preach the philosophy of dedication, to God and to humanity, we are actually trying to save people from a very negative future. Actually trying to awaken people to the reality of themselves a spirit units, conscious units.

All your life you worship this body. 
And when the conscious unit leaves, you want to throw away the body.
Do we first need to die to realize that we are not this body?
Or maybe we can try to understand it before, by listening carefully.

But if you want to listen carefully, you have to stop the materialistic lifestyle. 
And that's what people don't want to do.
