Life is all about evolving your cognition from Perception to Fact, Fact to Truth, Truth to Reality


ईशावास्यमिदं सर्वं यत्किञ्च जगत्यां जगत् ।
तेन त्यक्तेन भुञ्जीथा मा गृधः कस्यस्विद्धनम् ॥

 The translation is:

“By the Consciousness filled must this all be, Whatever moving thing there is in the ever-moving world. With this renounced, you may enjoy. Covet not the wealth of anyone at all. 

Listen!  Yesterday I was expanding these four words.  I will expand those four words a little more deep, and then move to the next.  Listen! 

PERCEPTION: Whatever your senses can perceive in a limited Time and Space.
Second, FACT: Your senses perceiving with more Time and Space.
TRUTH: With a lot more Time and Space, even your perception evolves.  Truth!
REALITY is: Existence as it is, beyond your perception and Time and Space.

Yesterday I was giving an example: 

PERCEPTION: Earth is flat.  Sun is going around the Earth. 

FACT: No!  Earth is round, and Earth only is going around the Sun. 

TRUTH: Earth is not exactly round; it is more like an Orange fruit – a little pressed above and below.  And Sun goes around the Earth. Please listen!  In the Perception also, you felt that Sun goes around the Earth.  In Truth also, Sun goes around the Earth.  But, both are not one and the same.  Here you know it with a clear understanding that the Sun goes around the Earth in a few billion years because this whole Sun family is not stagnant, the whole Sun family is moving around, the whole Solar System is moving around centred on something.  So, in that way, Sun will go around the Earth at least once in billions of years. 

The REALITY is: The shape of the Earth should be seen with the Google Earth map.  You cannot describe it as round, or a little Orange fruit type.  No!  No description is possible.  See it as it is.  And, both Sun and the Earth are going around each other.  Earth goes around within one year period; Sun goes around within a few billion years.

Listen!  Life is all about evolving your cognition from Perception to Fact, Fact to Truth, Truth to Reality, that’s all!  It has nothing to do with so-called Bliss, Love, Renunciation, Devotion, Yoga, nothing.  All these are side-effects.

When your Perception evolves to Fact, you may suddenly become meditative, you may suddenly become yogic, you may suddenly become loving, you may suddenly become blissful; but, life itself, the purpose of life itself is to evolve from Perception to Fact, Fact to Truth, Truth to Reality. 

When you are moving from Fact to Truth, you may suddenly become active, you may suddenly become more loving, you may suddenly become blissful, you may suddenly lose your cunningness.  I am seeing that happening, after I started the Upanishads, in so many people!  People are losing their hypocrisy; people are losing their anger, violence. 

The highest form of violence is, you deciding you will not be useful or productive to anybody.  That is the highest form of violence.  You deciding, ‘I will not be useful!’  See, when you are angry towards your boss – ‘I will not be useful to his aim, his goal.’  Same way, only when you are angry with yourself and Sangha, Guru, whatever you see….  See, when you are angry with yourself, you will be angry with everything, everybody, every one.  Only then you will decide, ‘I will not be useful’, or, ‘I will not make any of their declarations into reality.’

“Love” means, making yourself as a catalyst for everyone’s reality.  “Nothing more can be done!” – to THAT extent!  Not only you should perceive “whatever you can you have done”, but everyone also should feel “whatever you can, you have done it for making everyone’s reality”.  That is what is “Love”.

I am seeing more and more people dropping hypocrisy, becoming loving, because, many of your Perceptions are moving towards Fact, Facts are moving towards Truth, Truths are moving towards Reality.  That is all is life!  That is all is life!  Cognition!  Cognition!  Moving from Perception to Fact, Fact to Truth, Truth to Reality.  Reality is “Eesha”. 

Listen!  Upanishads declare very clearly, Upanishads declare very clearly: “Consciousness fills all these”.

This one verse answers so many doubts created by materialists, the so-called rationalists, or the so-called irrational rationalists.  “Pagutharivu” (பகுத்தறிவு) – in Tamil we use that word.  Tamilian “Pagutharivu” (பகுத்தறிவு) people are, the Tamilian atheists are not even rationalists; they are “irrational rationalists”!

Listen!  Nothing purifies you like Truth.  Just simply sitting and giving advice to human-beings is useless.  After doing that for a decade, I realized it.  Sitting and giving advice to human-beings is useless, understand?  Telling them, ‘Be more loving, be more blissful, be more caring, be non-violent’, all this is just useless, utter useless, not even one percent useful!  If at all you are really sincere in helping yourself and people, others, don’t do this stupid thing of empty advices.  I tell you, whenever I moved people from Perception to Fact, Fact to Truth, Truth to Reality, all the best things that need to happen to people have started happening!  They became automatically more loving, more caring, more intelligent, more non-violent, more enriching.  I tell you, throughout this Upanishad Series I am going to do only this: moving you step by step to the higher levels of existence.  Automatically, all the good things will happen to you, and by you. 

I am not “Moral” teacher, please understand.  My teaching may lead you to become more moral.  My aim is leading you to higher and higher reality – असतो   मा   सद्गमय (“Asatho Maa Sadhgamaya”).  My purpose is to lead you to असतो मा सद्गमय । तमसो मा ज्योतिर्गमय । मृत्योर्माअमृतं गमय । (“Asatho Maa Sadhgamaya, Thamaso Maa Jyothirgamaya, Mrithyor Maa Amrithamgamaya”).  The side-effect may be bliss; you may become more blissful.  Side-effect may be intelligence; you may become more intelligent.  Side-effect may be thousands and thousands of auspicious qualities – you may become a good, moral person.  But, my aim is to lead you from Unreality to Reality – असतो मा सद्गमय ।तमसो मा ज्योतिर्गमय । मृत्योर्मा अमृतं गमय । (“Asatho Maa Sadhgamaya, Thamaso Maa Jyothirgamaya, Mrithyor Maa Amrithamgamaya”) – understand?  Experientially moving you from Perception to Fact, Fact to Truth, Truth to Reality, helping you to live Advaitha. 

[Meaning of this verse “Asatho Maa Sadhgamaya” from Brihadaranyaka Upanishad is: “Lead us from Unreality (of Transitory Existence) to the Reality (of the Eternal Self), Lead us from the Darkness (of Ignorance) to the Light (of Spiritual Knowledge), Lead us from the Fear of Death to the Knowledge of Immortality”]. 

The best way to listen to Upanishads should be: Morning you wake up, just wash yourself, come and drop your body in the presence of the Master, listen, listen listen!  After that, whole day, just digest, digest, digest, not doing any work related to mind other than this digestion.  And, if at all needed, doing a little physical work like gardening, or agriculture.  Body can work – some cleaning of the deity, or doing a little agriculture, or gardening; but mind should not work; mind should only be working on these great truths, digesting it, and falling into that space in the night as sleep.  This is the best way to listen to Upanishads!  Anyone who listens to Upanishads in this way, even for three months, will experience Living Advaitha!
