Seeking is the love letter from your Beloved who is living in your heart forever!


18th verse last day on Isavasya Upanishad. I wanted to give the essence of this Upanishad, through all the 18 verses, what they are trying to convey to us, they conveyed in the last verse, the essence.

agne naya supathā rāye asmān viśvāni deva vayunāni vidvān |

yuyodhy asmaj juhurāṇam eno bhūyiṣṭhāṁ te nama-uktiṁ vidhema || 18 ||

“O Agni, the Fire God! Knower of all our actions and all that is worth knowing, You must take us along the righteous and auspicious path of completion, leading us to experience the Supreme Consciousness, the original space of Complete Completion. O God, Consciousness! May you remove all our incompletions that are obstacles on our good path of completion, beyond coming and going, birth and death. Onto You we surrender with many reverential words, bowing down again and again.”

Listen. If I squeeze this whole 18 verses, the essence I see is intense seeking.

Seeking is the way God in you wakes up.

Understand, Seeking is the way God in you wakes up.

In the early morning sometimes you feel, you yourself will feel that you are dreaming. That is the way you wake up. How many of you have experienced the state that I am describing? Same way, listen. Seeking is the way you wake up to your reality. Don’t fall asleep, don’t turn away when the Seeking is awakened in you. Understand. After remembering you are dreaming, you just pull up your blanket and turn and sleep, how stupid you are. Same way, after just having seeking, after smelling seeking in your life, after tasting seeking in your life, if you just turn and loose that intensity in seeking that is the most stupid thing that can happen to you in your life.

Anything can be lost, not Seeking. Anything can be lost, you can get it back. ‘Money’ stupid, you can get in 24 hours. Health, you can get it in the next few weeks, even if you lose it.  Character, there is nothing called character, it is just your understanding, ideas if you alter it, you can get it immediately back. Anything lost, you can get it back not Seeking, because Seeking is not something to do with mind, it is something to do with your very Consciousness.

Seeking is the love letter from your Beloved who is living in your heart forever. If you miss that, you may have to wait forever and ever to get the second letter. Understand, it is a message from your Beloved who is residing in your heart forever. Anything can be lost, not seeking. Body can be lost and immediately you can have another one, because tons are there in the planet earth, billions of bodies are there. Mind can be lost immediately you can make another one.

Understand, anything can be lost; you can get it, not Seeking. Constantly, constantly keeping your inner quest alive, keeping the basic questions alive, till they become experiential answers, not intellectual, experiential answers.

What am I doing? Everyday what am I doing? What I am doing is it exactly moving me, pushing me towards where I am supposed to reach.

What am I doing?

Where am I going?

What am I doing? Where am I heading?

Understand. Even in the Sangha, only if you are clear about — what am I doing? Where am I heading?; only then you will be able to function. The system is such; I have evolved such a balanced system. I have kept lots of checks and balances. Unconsciously you can never win over the Sangha. You can never become a Mahant, SriMahant or head of the Sangha by your so-called social, political, efficiency unconsciously. You just remain in unconscious, but just because social, political strength, power you can become head of the Sangha will never happen here. I have made enough check and balances. Constantly you have to remember, what am I doing, is this helping me to head where I am supposed to reach. Only with the Seeking if you function, you will be fueled from the right Source.

Understand, your fear should not fuel you. Your greed should not fuel you. You should not work out of fear and greed. That does not mean you should not work. There are many stupid fellows, I should not work out of fear and greed, so I should not work. Understand, drop the fear and greed, not the work. No, there are people, I should not work out of fear and greed, so I don’t want to work. Drop the fear & greed not the work. You should not work out of fear and greed. Seeking should be the energy source. Seeking should be the energy source. Seeking should be the energy source. Actually, if you make the Seeking as the energy source from morning till night for your thinking and planning, even in the night you won’t fall asleep. You will only fall into the space of Turiya [fourth state of consciousness] and wake up. You will only fall into the space of Turiya and wake up.

Understand, the essence of whole Isavasya Upanishad, the lesson you need to learn from the Isavasya Upanishad is – intense seeking, intense seeking. The eighteenth (18th) verse emphasizes on praying and surrendering. Ultimately, man cannot make it, only God has to make it. Only He has to make it for you, so that is why — “Oh God, Consciousness may you remove all our incompletions that are obstacles on our good path of completion, beyond coming and going, birth and death. Onto You, we surrender with many reverential words, bowing down again and again, bowing down again and again.”

agne naya supathā rāye asmān viśvāni deva vayunāni vidvān |

yuyodhy asmaj juhurāṇam eno bhūyiṣṭhāṁ te nama-uktiṁ vidhema || 18 ||

The surrender, the devotion. Actually, when your bio-energy is kindled, awakened, the devotion and surrender will be the first thing happening in your bio-memory that will be the first thing happening in your bio-memory. Your whole body and mind will start tasting devotion and surrender.

agne naya supathā rāye asmān viśvāni deva vayunāni vidvān |

yuyodhy asmaj juhurāṇam eno bhūyiṣṭhāṁ te nama-uktiṁ vidhema || 18 ||

Every time when I chant this verse, throat feels so sweet, because the way it is described – we surrender with many reverential words, bowing down again and again.

bhūyiṣṭhāṁ te nama-uktiṁ vidhema ||

pranamāmi muhur muhur — means bowing down again and again.

When the gratitude overflows, that is what, that is the only thing you know to do. Nothing else can be done; you don’t know what to do. pranamāmi muhur muhur— bow down again and again. When your bio-energy, God particle, Kundalini Shakti is awakened, you will feel tremendous Seeking in your bio- memory. Suddenly you will see the earlier, the cognitions you built about you, everything is collapsing like a Hindi movie climax. How in the Hollywood, Bollywood movie climaxes always they collapse at least 2 or 3 buildings, only then climax will happen. How those buildings collapses, you will see your cognitions collapse, not for bad, but for good, because the right expansive cognitions will start happening. I tell you, that is why I am saying when the seeking happens in your life, 10 times more you should be micromanaging and planning, only then the real, the Seeking is getting filled in your bio-memory and your bio-memory is getting shaken by that Seeking. Normally you are managing one shop, if the Seeking awakens in you, you should be able to manage 10 shops, and the Seeking fire. Only then your Seeking is penetrating into your bio-memory. Otherwise somewhere the wrong tube connection, it goes somewhere else.

Understand, when the God particle, the Kundalini Shakti, bio-energy awakens in you, the first thing will happen — your bio-memory will be shaken with Seeking. Everything, everything the old cognition will start shaking, shivering like Bollywood movie climax, how the buildings collapse, cars explode. Your old cognitions will explode; collapse and the new will start happening. New cannot be exploded or collapsed because it will be stone. The first thing will happen in your bio-memory is, Seeking exploding in your muscle memory, so much of energy will happen. Suddenly you will see, the tiredness disappears, so much energy, to live your day-to-day life; so much joy to live your day-to-day life.

 

The devotion, surrender expressed in this verse can be a powerful source of energy for you, even by contemplating on it, even by contemplating on it. Essence of this whole Upanishad is — SEEKING, SEEKING. SEEKING THE BASIC TRUTHS – Who Am I? Who am I? What Am I? Who Am I? What Am I? Who Am I? What Am I? Where am I heading? What I am doing? How is life happening?

Keeping these basic questions alive, aligning your every breath to these basic questions. Integrating your every breath to these basic questions, integrating you is the basic questions, is Seeking. Integrating you to the answers to the questions you receive from the Master is Living Enlightenment. Integrating you to these questions is seeking. Integrating the understanding the source of questions and the answers is Surrender.

Integrating yourself to all these questions is Seeking. Integrating yourself to the answers received from the Masters is Living Enlightenment. Integrating yourself to the truth – He is the source of questions and the answers is Surrender.

The Upanishad starts with declarations which start seeking in you, ends with a tremendous surrender. Starts with:

aum pūrṇamadaḥ pūrṇamidaṃ pūrṇāt pūrṇamudacyate
pūrṇasya pūrṇamādāya pūrṇamevāvaśiṣyate

īśāvāsyam idagṁ sarvam yat kiñca jagatyām jagat |

Ends with a tremendous powerful surrender note. 

Essence of the Isavasya Upanishad is SEEKING.
