Discover Your Consciouness


Today, I will enter into the fifth verse of Ishavasya Upanishad.  Please recite along with me.

तदेजति तन्नैजति तद्दूरे तद्वन्तिके। तदन्तरस्य सर्वस्य तदु सर्वस्यास्य बाह्यतः॥

Thadhejathi Thannaijathi Thadhdhoore Thadhvanthike | Thadhantharasya Sarvasya Thadhu Sarvasyaasya Baahyathah ||

The translation:

That moves, and That moves not.  That is far off, That is also near. That is the inner space of all this, and That is also the outer space of all this.

 

Through this statement, Upanishad is declaring, you need “manana”, intranalyzing, to experience Consciousness, not just “shravana” is enough.  “Shravana”, listening, to instigate “manana”, intranalyzing.  Please understand, the fifth verse also again describes the various qualities of Consciousness, or, I can say, the various techniques with which you can move yourself towards the Consciousness, you can experience Consciousness.

तदेजति तन्नैजति तद्दूरे तद्वन्तिके।
तदन्तरस्य सर्वस्य तदु सर्वस्यास्य बाह्यतः॥

Thadhejathi Thannaijathi Thadhdhoore Thadhvanthike |

Thadhantharasya Sarvasya Thadhu Sarvasyaasya Baahyathah ||

 

That moves, and That moves not.  That is far off, That is also near.

That is the inner space of all this, and That is also the outer space of all this.

 

Listen!  Seemingly confusing description, but the most clear statement ever uttered on the Planet Earth is this statement!  Most authentic statement ever uttered on the Planet Earth is this statement!

तदेजति तन्नैजति तद्दूरे तद्वन्तिके।
तदन्तरस्य सर्वस्य तदु सर्वस्यास्य बाह्यतः॥

Thadhejathi Thannaijathi Thadhdhoore Thadhvanthike |Thadhantharasya Sarvasya Thadhu Sarvasyaasya Baahyathah ||

 

Discovering your Consciousness experientially is the purpose of your life, understand?  I am not using the word “inventing”; I am just saying “discovering”.  Discovering your Consciousness is THE purpose of life.  Whether you lived as a spiritual being, you lived as a cook, lawyer, engineer, doctor, professional, or not doing anything, nothing counts!  Whether you lived as a political leader or social leader, nothing counts in the Cosmos, understand!  The only thing that counts in the Cosmos is: ‘Have you discovered your Pure Consciousness?’  The good news I have is, nothing what you considered as the goal of your life, whether you achieved it or not achieved it, is considered as goal at all in the Cosmos.  If you think you have not got a good name in your neighbourhood, don’t worry; it is not the goal of life.  If you think you don’t have this, you don’t have that, don’t worry; this is not the goal of life.  People who have all those, wasted their time and energy!  The one and only goal…..  Please understand, I am not saying this goal is the first priority of life.  No!  This is the ONLY goal of life!  The only goal of life is DISCOVERING YOUR PURE CONSCIOUSNESS!

Every moment you spent in discovering your Consciousness, you USED that moment in your life.  Every moment you didn’t spend on this goal, you WASTED those moments in your life.  I will give you one small tip: Whenever you are able to think, intranalyze, with the goal of reaching your Source, all those moments are “meditation”!  Even if your thinking looks very confusing!

See, yesterday’s Vaakyaartha Sadhas of the kids, it is thoroughly confusing!  And I wanted to tell you, all statements they said is lie!  All the statements, nothing is true, and nothing is false!  I don’t want to say whatever they said is false.  I only want to say, everything is lie!  “Lie” is not “false”.  Sometimes “lie” is the name of the in-between stop between the truth and reality.  When you are lying down during your journey between truth and reality, it can be called as “lie”, but it is not “false”!  Understand, whatever they said is lie, but that does not mean they wasted their time.  No!  They are moving towards the reality.  Whatever they said is not false; it is neither true nor false.  It is a beautiful practice through which they are moving towards the reality.  That is why I am encouraging Vaakyaartha Sadhas continuously.

Listen!  I also wanted to use this moment to congratulate our Yuva Sangha, Youth Group.  They have again started the Vaakyaartha Sadhas.  I am so happy they are doing it through Internet and Skype call.  Same way, I wanted all over the world, Sangha should actively engage yourself in Vaakyaartha Sadhas.  Please understand, only the time you spend in Vaakyaartha Sadhas is the time you chisel yourself, you discover your Consciousness.  Your quality of integrity, quality of authenticity, quality of responsibility, quality of enriching, will just multiply million times, billion times, if you can spend a little time on Vaakyaartha Sadhas every day.  Because, many times, intranalyzing of these great truths, you may not be able to do it sitting alone.  Because, the fourth block, fifth block, you reach in your mind, you will collapse and fall asleep and may want to have a sip of Coca Cola, Coffee, one phone call to your friend or to your buddy.  Over!  Your Vaakyaartha Sadhas ended!  Your “manana” ended!  But, if you have as a team and do the Vaakyaartha Sadhas, you will dedicate a certain amount of time just for this.  At least, for the sake of engaging yourself in the conversation, you will think every subtle nuances, aspects, of these great truths.  So, again and again and again, I insist on Vaakyaartha Sadhas.  Vaakyaartha Sadhas is directly doing pooja to Consciousness!  The time you spend on Vaakyaartha Sadhas is direct “maanasa pooja”.

The amount of time I used to spend in Vaakyaartha Sadhas when I was young, and the time I take to travel to those sannyasis and seekers and satsangha!  Sometimes I walk even two hours to reach the places where sadhus are staying, to have Vaakyaartha Sadhas!  Sit with them, listen to them, talk to them!  Almost every day, from the house to Annamalai Swamigal ashram, I will walk.  In those days there was no other mode of transportation.  Of course, cycle, two-wheeler, everything was available, but I cannot drive any of that; that is different.  I didn’t know!  For quite a long time, I cannot balance the bicycle!  Only very recently I managed to balance bicycle.  Because, the right-left, that balance was never in the cognition.  Never I felt, right and left as two separate entities which I can balance.  Anyhow, that is totally different context, different understanding.  Listen!  But I never felt that Annamalai Swamigal ashram was too far away.  Friend’s house is never far away, because, when you are going, you are in the mood of spending time with him, it will never be far off.  You will just see, suddenly it is there!

And, I tell you, Vaakyaartha Sadhas will help you guys to discover many of the truths on your own!  On your own!

तदेजति तन्नैजति तद्दूरे तद्वन्तिके।तदन्तरस्य सर्वस्य तदु सर्वस्यास्य बाह्यतः॥

Thadhejathi Thannaijathi Thadhdhoore Thadhvanthike |Thadhantharasya Sarvasya Thadhu Sarvasyaasya Baahyathah ||

 That moves, and That moves not.  That is far off, and That is also near.

That is the inner space of all this, and That is also the outer space of all this.

 This is Consciousness declaring about itself, understand?  This is God introducing about himself!  Who is the Source of the whole Cosmos is introducing about himself in this verse!

तदेजति तन्नैजति तद्दूरे तद्वन्तिके।
Thadhejathi Thannaijathi Thadhdhoore Thadhvanthike | 

That moves, and That moves not.  That is far off, and That is also near.  That is the inner space of all this, and That is also  the outer space of all this.

Means, “That Moves”: Consciousness.  “Thadhejathi” (तदेजति)!

And, “Thannaijathi”  (तन्नैजति): “That does not move”.

In riddles, the Upanishads are declaring the ultimate about the Ultimate.  In riddles, in paradox, in words which are apparently confusing!  Chaotic!

“Thadhejathi Thannaijathi”  (तदेजति तन्नैजति): “That moves, and That moves not”!

How to understand?  It means, they are saying, ‘Sit and contemplate, what is the meaning of “That moves, and That does not Move”?  What should be that?  What is it that moves and does not move?’

‘Arrey, what is this?  Already I have too many problems, questions!  Why should I think about all this?’

No!  You HAVE to!  You HAVE to!

तदेजति तन्नैजति तद्दूरे तद्वन्तिके।
Thadhejathi Thannaijathi Thadhdhoore Thadhvanthike |

 Understand?

 तदेजति तन्नैजति तद्दूरे तद्वन्तिके।
Thadhejathi Thannaijathi Thadhdhoore Thadhvanthike | 

I will repeat the meaning: “That moves, and That moves not.  That is far off, and That is also near”.

How can something be far off and be near?

“That is the inner space of all this.  That is also the outer space of all this”!

Brahmaanda and Pindaanda.  Brahmaanda is outer space of all this.  Pindaanda is the inner space of all this.  It is That, and it is This!

Today, Upanishads speak in riddles, in paradox.  Utterly confusing!  That is the right word I will use: “Utterly confusing”!

तदेजति तन्नैजति तद्दूरे तद्वन्तिके।
तदन्तरस्य सर्वस्य तदु सर्वस्यास्य बाह्यतः॥

Thadhejathi Thannaijathi Thadhdhoore Thadhvanthike |

Thadhantharasya Sarvasya Thadhu Sarvasyaasya Baahyathah || 

If you just intranalyze, understand this one verse, you will become ENLIGHTENED!

Vaakyaartha Sadhas should be the most important spiritual practice in all our gurukuls and Old Age Homes.  Because, Vaakyaartha Sadhas is the best practice even the elderly people can do.

Sit and intranalyze:  What is it that moves, and that does not move, that is far off, and that is also near?

Mahadeva is describing about himself, understand?  You can never understand him with your logic.  Only HE can introduce himself to you.  Here, HE is introducing himself.

“That moves.  That moves not.  That is far off.  That is also near.  That is the inner space of all this.  That is also the outer space of all this.

तदेजति तन्नैजति तद्दूरे तद्वन्तिके।
Thadhejathi Thannaijathi Thadhdhoore Thadhvanthike | 

Mahadeva is introducing about himself.  He is not just giving you his Visiting Card.  He is just describing about himself!  Contemplate on it!  Contemplate on it!  Contemplate on it!  He is describing about himself!  Contemplate on it!  He is the inner space of all this.  He is also the outer space of all this.

Actually, if you contemplate on these verses, you will achieve complete Brahmacharya!  Because, these verses are so powerful, they will just open up your whole Kundalini Shakthi!  Brahmacharya is all about opening the Kundalini Shakthi.  If the Kundalini Shakthi is opened up, you will achieve Brahmacharya just like that!  So simple!  In a most simple way!

तदेजति तन्नैजति तद्दूरे तद्वन्तिके।
तदन्तरस्य सर्वस्य तदु सर्वस्यास्य बाह्यतः॥

Thadhejathi Thannaijathi Thadhdhoore Thadhvanthike |

Thadhantharasya Sarvasya Thadhu Sarvasyaasya Baahyathah ||

 That moves, and that moves not.  That is far off, That is also near.

That is the inner space of all this.  That is also the outer space of all this.

 Actually, you cannot comment on it.  I can’t expand on it.  How will I expand?  I can only go on repeating, repeating, repeating, till you catch it.

Meaning of this verse is the strange smile I am radiating when I am uttering this verse.  It is hidden in that smile.  It is hidden in my eyes which are smiling when I am uttering these words!  I cannot do anything other than carrying a strange smile in my lips and the eyes when I am uttering this verse, these words and verse.  More than that, no commentary can be written on it.  No explanation can be given to it.  I am only sitting and enjoying, ‘You fellows need this!’  Contemplate on it.  Intranalyze it.  Meditate on it.  ‘You did not do when you were young na?  Come on, do now!’  That is what exactly the meaning of that smile!

I tell you, discovering the Consciousness is the one and only purpose of life.  Whether life puts you in heaven, or life puts you in hell, the only message life wants to send you is: DISCOVER YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS!

Whether it gives you whatever you want and keeps you in the highest pedestal of the world, society, money, wealth, power, name and fame, everything is offered to you, life is sending you the message: ‘DISCOVER YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS WHICH IS BEYOND ALL THESE!’  If you are tortured, pushed into poverty, no food, disease, no medical-care, you are literally stinking and dying every moment, life is sending you the message: ‘DISCOVER YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS!  THAT IS THE ONLY WAY TO BE RID OF THIS!’  Understand, whether you are showered everything, or tortured every moment, the one and only message life is sending to you is: DISCOVER YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS!

Whether it is March 2nd or March 3rd…..  March 3rd is “Jeevan Mukthi Jayanthi”.  Understand, whether it is March 2nd or March 3rd – March 2nd is “Attack”, and March 3rd is Jeevan Mukthi delivered – both have the same message: DISCOVER YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS!  I take that also as a message from life, Consciousness: DISCOVER YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS MORE AND MORE!  HELP PEOPLE TO DISCOVER THEIR CONSCIOUSNESS MORE AND MORE!  Jeevan Mukthi Jayanthi, again this is the message: DISCOVER YOUR CONSCIOUSNESS!

तदेजति तन्नैजति तद्दूरे तद्वन्तिके।
Thadhejathi Thannaijathi Thadhdhoore Thadhvanthike |

 Meditate again and again!  Intranalyze!  Do Vaakyaartha Sadhas today on this one phrase: तदेजति तन्नैजति Thadhejathi Thannaijathi – “That moves, and That moves not”.  That is all!  Do Vaakyaartha Sadhas just on this; you will understand, you will understand deeper and deeper and deeper truths.  I will see to it, everyone discovers Consciousness!
