Whatever spiritual practice you do should make you more and more strong seeker.


I will continue to expand on 10th verse of Isavasya Upanishad.

anyad evāhur vidyayā-anyad āhur avidyayā |

iti śuśruma dhīrāṇaṁ ye nastad vicacakṣire || 10 ||

I will read out the translation:

It is said that by vidyā, the knowledge cognized from the right context of grasping the Truth, Consciousness and the superficial knowledge acquired from the wrong context of grabbing, without cognizing the subtle Truth, certainly the different result is achieved. Similarly, it is said that by avidyā, the authentic actions and the ignorant actions a very different result is achieved thus having listened to those wise beings who explained the absolute principle to us.

Listen. Without the context of seeking, even renunciation can lead you into laziness.

Lot of people talk as if they are renouncing just to justify their laziness, dumbness, stupidity, understand. No, I get many lectures like this from people, utterly lazy and bored, tired, but when they talk they talk as if they are renouncing the whole world. Listen.

Renunciation is not renouncing the action, you grow grass, feed the cow, milk, then make it as curd, churn, get the butter, boil it, and make ghee, offer the ghee to the Deity, Divine, God, Guru or whatever, that is renunciation, sacrifice. You don’t even grow the grass is not sacrifice, understand, that is boredom and tiredness. Many people don’t even take the effort of growing the grass, they say, “Oh, everything is Maya.” Without understanding the context, even the greatest truth can be missed, misused. Missed and misused.

Seeking, honest seeking, authentic seeking, being integrated to your seeking, is one of the most important alignment you need to do in your life, every day. Because it is only by seeking your Being is kept in the most possible, highest peak awareness; in the most possible, highest peak awareness. So listen, keep the seeking alive.

Let the seeking become your first response to life.

Let the seeking be the source of inspiration for you to live.

Let the seeking be the energy to live. Let the seeking be intensity to live.

anyad evāhur vidyayā-anyad āhur avidyayā |

Without the context of seeking, the most subtle truths are never cognized. Without the context of seeking, the most subtle truths are never cognized. Cognizing the most subtle truths, in the right context happens only by you keeping your seeking alive. Everything, deity worship, attending satsang, reading the scripture, doing voluntary service, pranayama, yoga, spiritual practice, whatever you are doing, should strengthen your seeking, should make you more and more strong, seeker. Depth of your seeking should be increased! Don’t ever think without seeking any higher thing can be achieved, no. Everything, every higher thing, is achieved only by seeking.

Today, also, keeping the purity of your seeking, let that be the Vaakyartha Sadas. Let that be the Vaakyartha Sadas.
