The Real Bliss of the Self

A visitor from the Punjab asked Bhagavan, “When I meditate I feel a certain bliss at times. On such occasions, should I ask myself ‘Who is it that experiences this bliss’?”

Bhagavan: If it is the real bliss of the Self that is experienced, i.e., if the mind has merged really in the Self, such a doubt will not arise at all. The question itself shows real bliss was not reached.

All doubts will cease only when the doubter and his source have been found. There is no use removing doubts. If we clear one doubt, another doubt will arise and there will be no end of doubts. But if the doubter is found to be really non-existent, by seeking for the source of the doubter, then all doubts will cease.
