Key Teachings of Saint Amit Ray
Saint Amit Ray known throughout the world as an enlightened person. He always remained focused on the teachings of compassion, meditation and deep self-inquiry toward the goal of liberation. He express his idea of inner-observance in this way:
“Discover your deep inner-self and from that place spread love in every direction. As you go deeper and deeper, and keep your attention on the source, the mind will be settled and the eternity will arise.” — Amit Ray
Ray, wanted every meditator to focus solely on the witnessing aspect of the Self, that which sees all the changing aspects of the world, in a non-judgmental way. Focusing on the source that is responsible for everything is the key of deep meditation. Compassion, detachment, self-inquiry, and spreading deep love and positive vibrations are the key teachings of Sri Amit Ray. He says that
“You can come out of the repetitive thought patterns by witnessing the thinker inside you. Witnessing will give you the state of “no-mind” -the state of deep inner connectedness. Gradually, you move into the state of pure being — the state of pure consciousness.“ — Amit Ray
Dr. Amit Ray teaches the art of accessing the light of your innermost core. Your inner most core is free from dualities and polarities. We drain our vital energy through our unconscious repetitive negative thought patterns. Unconsciously, we live in the worries of the past and the future. To overcome that he said:
“Dualities and polarities are the clouds of your mind. Come out of the negative thought patterns. Come out of the survival machine. Time to time you need stop the thinking machine, and get in touch with the eternity — the state of the ‘no-mind’ — the state of the pure being.” — Amit Ray
Depression and anxieties are created by the over thinking of the past and the wrong anticipation of the future. When we bring ourselves and ground ourselves in the moment — we realize through gratitude that we are perfectly ok in this moment. Regarding overcoming anxiety and depression, in his famous quote Saint Amit Ray says:
“If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.” — Amit Ray
Saint Amit Ray says, compassion shows us the way to come out of all incompleteness. Compassion can help you to be present right in this moment. Compassion can release your trapped life-energy and blossom your life. He says:
“Look the world through the eyes of a mother. Enlightenment gives you the power to see the world in the eyes of a loving mother. See the world through the lens of forgiveness, gratefulness and carefulness.” — Amit Ray

The resulting flood of spiritual awareness gave birth to his self-realization.

“In his path of enlightenment, nature, especially trees and birds played special roles. From childhood Saint Amit Ray had a subtle skill to communicate with trees. He lost that skill as he grew up. But one morning while he was walking near a big maple tree in Hauppauge, Long Island, he saw few leaves of the tree become golden, bright and lighted. He entered into the state of deep Samadhi absorption. He rapidly passed through various realms of consciousness. The maple tree taught him the lessons of enlightenment through the beauty of nature. It shows how beauty of the nature has the power to transcend the limits of time-and-space, the limits of body, mind and soul. Similarly, while he was at Uttarkashi, Himalaya one morning the dance of a red robin on the top of a pine tree gives him the deepest feeling of Universal oneness and bliss.”
Nature, flowers, trees and birds are always very dear to him. Planting trees for the shake of our children is always his top priority.
