Permanent Shelter is a discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti on the evening of 1979 June 7 in Mumbai, India. This discourse is the 33rd chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 12.[1]


To think is to speak within the mind. Whatever you think, whatever you speak within your mind, is then and there tape-recorded by Him. So nothing remains secret. So while doing your meditation and other forms of sádhaná, you should always remember that He is your supreme subject and you are His object. He sees whatever you do, and this is the final secret. What should I say? This is the greatest secret of the Universe, and this secret no longer remains a secret because all of you know it.

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

Anandamurti starts the discourse by saying that human beings seek a permanent shelter. The only permanent shelter in a transitory world is Parama Purusa. He then explains that the mind takes the form of its object. So, by taking Parama Purusa as our object, we become one with Him. Anandamurti goes on explaining that actually Parama Purusa is the supreme subject and not our object. This fact should be remembered while we are doing sadhana.[1]
