The Role of the Cognitive Faculty is a discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti on 1978 September 29 in Patna, India. This discourse is the 21st chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 2.[1]


You are closely associated, closely related to Him; and He is closely related to you. You are never helpless, never alone. You are always with Him, and so you should never entertain pessimism or any inferiority complex.

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

Anandamurti starts the discourse by saying that all entities, regardless of their size or nature are equally loved and cared for by Parama Purusa. He then explains the shloka, Sama pluśina sama mashakena sama nágena samaebhistribhirlokaeh. A tiny mosquito is as significant for Him as a big mammoth, and He regards the three realms as equally significant. Anandamurti goes on comparing the Supreme Consciousness to a lamp, lightning a stage. In every condition, active or suspended, dormant or lively, He is always with us. Therefore we should never feel alone or become pessimistic.[1]
