More and more you complete all the incompletions, the more and more your perception will expand


 

I will enter into Isavasya Upanishad, thirteenth (13th) verse. Please chant along with me.

anyad-evāhuḥ sambhavād anyad-āhur-asambhavāt |

iti śuśruma dhīrāṇāṁ ye nastad vicacakṣire || 13 ||

 Translation goes:

It is said that from the worship of the imperishable Consciousness, the cause of manifestation [sambhavāt] certainly a different result is attained. And it is said that from the worship of the manifested, perishable entities [asambhavāt] such as gods, spirits, ancestors, a very different result is attained—thus we have heard the revelation from those wise beings who explained that absolute principle to us.

Listen.

What should be your goal? What needs to be worshipped? What should be the ultimate cherished object of you? — that question is being analyzed and answered here. Listen. What should be the cherished goal?

Please understand, whatever you cherish as goal is only worshipped by you. Worship does not mean the few minutes you bow down or the aarti (offering light to divine) you show or the food you offer. Worship means what you constantly remember as highest possibility for you; what you constantly remember as completion of you; what you constantly remember as possibility of you. If you think money will bring fulfillment to you, money fulfills you, naturally money is only worshiped by you. Even if you worship any God in any form you are worshiping for the sake of money. So money is only worshipped in this form. If you are worshiping Lakshmi for the sake of money, you are actually worshipping only money not Lakshmi. Lakshmi is only, as long as she is the embodiment of money. Suddenly if Lakshmi decides – “I am not going to disperse money to people who call upon me”, you will stop worshiping!

So understand, if you are worshiping Saraswati just for knowledge, you are only worshiping knowledge. Whatever you think as the fruit of your life, whatever you think is needed for your completion whatever you think is needed for your fulfillment, what you think as the better half of you, the other part of you… Listen. In one of His teachings, Ramana Maharishi says very clearly – it is very difficult to feel the spirituality, the social conscious awakening is what is required for you to feel fulfillment, because most of us never become sensitive enough to perceive the ultimate truth as it is. Understand our perception always gets stuck.

You think if I am healthy, I am complete. If I am free from the problems I am going through, I am complete. If I have wealth, I am complete. If I have financial freedom, I am complete. If I have this freedom, that freedom which comes due to this reason, that reason, I am complete. Understand, even to perceive it is spiritual awakening which is needed for your completion happens after many, many, many lifetimes maturity. Please understand, it takes many lifetimes to achieve maturity. It takes at least 100 lives in pursuit of wealth finally for you realize that wealth is not the better half of you. It takes at least few hundred lives of pursuit after the power and position for you to realize, the power and position is not going to lead you to completion. It takes almost few thousand janmas (births) – the hormonally inspired relationships making or breaking is not going to bring completion in you, I tell you.

Somebody asked me recently, “Why do you give krama brahmacharya deeksha to the Gurukul kids, small boys, small girls?” I tell them, “I am just discovering, trying to find out how many matured souls I have.”

Please understand, when your body gets filled with hormones but your mind is stable, not being deviated by the pressure of the hormone to make any decision or to run behind any relationship, it means you are a matured soul for janmas (births). You went behind the hormone-based relationships, hormone inspired relationships and you understood completion cannot be achieved by it. If you have not understood, the moment hormonal actions and reactions start happening, you will start looking around. I am not saying you are supposed to look around or you are supposed to look around, its up to you. When you start looking around naturally I tell you, drop the krama brahmacarya deeksha. It’s very rare after many janmas the intelligence to handle the hormonal pressure ripes. Understand, but it ripes.

If you are running behind lust you may worship God, but you are worshiping for the sake of lust so that God is worshiped only for you to have the fulfillment of your lust. You only see him as the fulfillment of you lust, nothing other than that. So whatever you cherish inside your deep heart, the deep corner of your heart as fulfillment, if you are given everything available in the planet earth how you will spend your next 1 week, you are worshiping that, understand. If you are given everything available on the planet earth suddenly, how you will plan to spend your next week – that is what you are craving for, that is what you are worshiping.

Upanishad talks about what you are worshiping and where it leads you in this verse.

Please understand, if you are worshiping wealth wherever you are, you will be tortured by greed. If you are worshiping lust, wherever you are, you will only be worshiping or you will only be torturing yourself in hell. Because lust happens out of a deep incomplete pattern that it is not going to be given to you. Please understand, even before it starts it convinces you, it is not going to be given to you. So how many ever forms it is given, you are only going to be looking at the side where you are not given and confirm to yourself that you are not given. Self-destructive mechanism. Self-destructive mechanism.

Understand, what is it you are looking in your life? What is it you feel as the goal of your life? What is it that you strongly believe will fulfill your life — that is what you are worshiping. That is what you are worshiping.

Upanishad very clearly declares – whatever you worship you will attain that. Whatever you worship you will attain that. Upanishad is not judging you here. It is not saying you should not be worshipping something lower; you should be only worshipping something higher. No! Upanishad is not talking about that. It is only reminding you the highest law of existence. Please understand, always the absolute teaching is not telling you what to do or what not to do, but just reminding you – what is; reminding you – what is, will automatically make you what you need to do.

Upanishad have nothing to do with vidhi-nisheda, do’s and don’ts. It has nothing to do with vidhi-nisheda, do’s-don’ts It just reminds you the ultimate truth. It just reminds you the ultimate possibility. It just reminds you what is the truth. It just reminds you whatever is ultimate. It just reminds you the reality.

Look in. Find out what you are worshipping? Is it power? Is it money? Is it name and fame? Or is it the enlightenment, the conscious awakening? Look in and find out what are you worshipping? Look in and realize what are you worshipping. Please understand, even if you try to look in, find out what are you worshipping? Even if you look in, see, what are you worshipping? Even if you look in, try to feel what are you worshipping?

The very looking in will evolve your perception. Understand, evolving the perception, evolving the perception is all this verse expects to cause in you. Evolving your perception. Evolving what you perceive about life. Evolving what you perceive as life. Evolving what your feel as life. Evolving what you experience as your fulfillment. Please understand, I wanted to remind once more – nowhere Isavasya Upanishad is ready to tell you – what is right and what is wrong, but it very clearly reminds you about the truth, about the truth.

I will repeat the verse and the translation:

anyad-evāhuḥ sambhavād anyad-āhur-asambhavāt |

iti śuśruma dhīrāṇāṁ ye nastad vicacakṣire || 13 ||

 Translation goes:

It is said that from the worship of the imperishable Consciousness, the cause of manifestation certainly a different result is attained. And it is said that from the worship of the manifested, perishable entities such as gods, spirits, ancestors a very different result is attained — thus we have heard the revelation from those wise beings who explained that absolute principle to us.

That is why I always insist on expanding the perception. Please understand, even if you build your body with yoga, what’s the use? You may live 200 years. There are monkeys living 500 years, tress living 100 years. There are tortoises living 500 years. There are trees live 1000 years. What’s the use of it?  The numbers of years you live, breathe is not the goal of yoga or Hindu tradition.

Purification of perception, expansion of perception is essence of Hindu tradition. Expansion of perception is the essence of Sanatana Hindu dharma. Upanishads are not saying – don’t worship something lower, worship something higher. No! They are not saying do’s and don’ts. That’s the job of Smriti. Upanishads are not giving any vidhi-nisheda, do’s and don’ts. Its only gently reminding you the law of existence, the law of cosmos.

It is said that from the worship of the imperishable Consciousness, the cause of manifestation, certainly a different result is attained. And it is said that from the worship of the manifested, perishable entities a very different result is attained. Thus we have heard the revelation from those wise beings who explained that absolute principle to us.

Expansion of the perception. Yoga strengthens your body. Completion expands your perception. That is why I insist on bringing completion to your perception. Bring completion to your perception. Bring completion to your perception. More and more you complete all the incompletions, the more and more your perception will expand. The perception expands with your incompletions melting down. With that the kundalini awakening and the enlightenment or whatever the powers express because of enlightenment.

Please understand, all the powers are flavors of enlightenment. All the powers are flavors of enlightenment. Awaken the conscious fulfillment. Awaken the need for conscious fulfillment in you. Awaken your larger perception about life. You will see Kundalini awakening happens. You will see life is celebrated. You will see enlightenment becomes your reality. You will see clearly what Upanishad is trying to declare through this verse.

anyad-evāhuḥ sambhavād anyad-āhur-asambhavāt |

iti śuśruma dhīrāṇāṁ ye nastad vicacakṣire || 13 ||

…..will become reality in you. It will just become reality in you. Every process I do whether it is Shivoham process or Completion process or Inner Awakening, every process I do is just to make this experience as reality in you; to make this as reality for you, everything is done. Everything is done just to make this as reality in you.

anyad-evāhuḥ sambhavād anyad-āhur-asambhavāt |

iti śuśruma dhīrāṇāṁ ye nastad vicacakṣire || 13 ||

It is said that from the worship of the imperishable Consciousness, the cause of manifestation, certainly a different result is attained. And it is said that from the worship of the manifested, perishable entities such as gods, spirits and ancestors, a very different result is attained. Thus we have heard the revelation from those wise beings who explained that absolute principle to us. 

Make this as your experience. Make this as your reality. Make this as part of you. Make this as you. This is the nectar, the amruta. Actually exactly this is what has happened in everyone in Kumbha Mela. I can see how the perception of people has expanded. The perception about themself or perception about others. The perception, how it changed! Perception about the reality of life.

anyad-evāhuḥ sambhavāt – I have seen in Kumbh Mela, what people worship started changing. Their greed started losing power over them, seeking started taking over them. Happening that can give perceptional change is Kumbh Mela. The place that can give perceptional change is Varanasi. The person who can give that perceptional change is an Incarnation (avatar). If you missed Kumbh Mela, don’t worry, still Varanasi is calling you. Still an incarnation is calling you. Bringing your lower perceptions and expanding it into higher perception is breaking your karma pattern. Breaking your lower perception and making it into higher perception is breaking your karma pattern.

Come to Varanasi to break your karma pattern. Inner Awakening expands your perception. Inner Awakening is calling you. Inner Awakening expands your perception. Inner Awakening destroys all your smaller perceptions, makes you manifest the higher perceptions. Naturally you start cherishing, worshiping the imperishable consciousness not the perishable entities; imperishable consciousness not the perishable entities.
