Reaching out to an Enlightened master, doing what the master says and acting without intention is life!


No Comments

If the depth of the intention is more and the action is less, the person is lazy. He is lazy or in tamas.
If the depth of intention and of the action is the same, the person is in restless action or rajas.
If there is no intention but only the action, he is in purposeless action or sattva.

That is why Krishna says in the Bhagavadgita, ‘Fight, O Arjuna.’ It is not the act of ‘killing’ that will be recorded but the intention that will be recorded. The intention of Arjuna is the intention of Krishna, who is a being with no intentions as He is one with the Cosmos!

When you act in tune with the Cosmos, the whole Cosmos blesses you. You attract all kinds of positive coincidences around you. That is why when people contribute even a little to the cause of such a person they are showered in abundance from all corners.

If you are my disciple, you don’t need any spiritual practice, you only need to manifest all the seeds I have put inside you. The feeling connection you cherish has tremendous impact over you!


No Comments

Please understand, if you feel connected to a Yoga Teacher, naturally he will have so much of impact over you, you will have health. He will somehow make you do Yoga. He will somehow make you bend again and again, by talking or whatever. He will make make you do Yoga and you will have health.

If you have feeling connection with teacher who teaches you stotras and bhajans, kirtans, somehow he will make you feel the devotion because constantly he will be sharing his thought current and he will do it. So with whom you entertain feel connection matters.

Be careful about with whom you are opening your heart and when you find the right person, don’t wait to open your being.

The moment you know right person is in front, don’t just grasp, just grab. Grasping is too decent word. When you know the right person is in front, don’t be too decent, be raw, just grab. Otherwise you may be wasting your life in the name of decency.

Understand, to whom you open your being and feel connected is very important.

The moment you decide to be My disciple, decide to entertain feeling connection to Me, cherish your bhakti towards Me, understand, I have put the whole Science of Oneness in the complete seed form inside you. You do not need any spiritual practice to achieve them. You just have to declare to start manifesting them, you just need to declare and allow them to manifest in your life, in your situations, everyday again and again. I tell you, when you declare and start manifesting even the intelligence you require for further manifestations –  I will send it along with it. You don’t have to think, “to build 24 inch biceps, I have to lift 20 kg. In each hand, I can only lift only 2 kg, how will I lift 20 kg and build the biceps?” No. Start with 2 kg, that strength which you develop with 2 will take care of you lifting 5, the strength you develop further will take care of you lifting 10.

Shiva Akarshana, Attributes of an Avatar – VII


No Comments

Shaiva Agamas, the authoritative scriptures revealed directly by Lord Shiva, declare that we are all nothing but Shiva Himself. Hence the mantra

Shivoham (Shiva I Am)’ or Nithyanandoham (Eternal Bliss I Am)’

are used interchangeably, as the Avatar of Paramahamsa Nithyananda is nothing but Shiva Himself, as are all of us. Realigning our physical, mental and psychological states to be in tune with Shiva can be done in one of two ways. 

In the first way, which is the long route, years of practice involving the body, the mind and the psychology may lead us to the cognition of Shivoham, either in this birth or thereafter. 

In the second way, infusing the space of Shivoham can be done in a scientific manner, by harnessing the energy pattern of the Cosmos represented by the Sri Chakra Mandala, and the use of specific sounds like the Shodasi Mantra to raise the disciples en masse to the space of Shivoham.

In the last one year, thousands of disciples have been initiated into the rare process of SHIVOHAM (experiencing the space of Shiva).

Guru Purnima is such a rare day, when Guru accepts bhiksha and burns the karmas of the disciples. Guru Bhakti – authenticity in your relationship with the Guru – is his message for Guru Purnima 2015. To those who consider him as Guru, he declared that – “I want you to have the inner image of SHIVOHAM (Shiva I am).” Whoever does that, he as Sada Shiva, committed to give the boon of LIVING SHIVOHAM. If the inspiration and energy of the  

Guru Purnima 2015 message—Guru Bhakti. Understand, understand this word – Guru Bhakti. It is not just putting few flowers in His feet, or doing some small puja, of course, that is a symbolic representation, but the real Guru Bhakti, understand, being authentic to Guru. 

Let me explain that word – Guru Bhakti, being authentic to Guru. Look into your inner image, see how much of your inner image is influenced by Guru’s presence in your life. Look into your inner image, see in how much you are still stuck, with your old stupid identity and inner image, how much the Guru has influenced, the Guru’s presence has influenced and how much of your idea about you as you has changed.  (more…)

I will continue on the Ishavasya Upanishad sixth verse.

यस्तु सर्वाणि भूतान्यात्मन्यॆवानुपश्यति ।
सर्वभूतॆषु चात्मानं ततॊ न विजुगुप्सतॆ ॥
Yasthu Sarvaani Bhoothaani Aathmanyeva Anupashyathi |
Sarva Bhootheshu Cha Aathmaanam Thatho Na Vijugupsathe ||

Listen!

“One who, indeed, lives by seeing as it is the whole Existence, all un-manifest and manifest beings, existing in the Consciousness itself, and the Consciousness existing in the whole Existence, thus, does not feel violated, or hates anything existing, by virtue of not seeing oneself as separate from the Consciousness.”

Listen! Today, I am taking completely a different route for you to experience this truth. If you think this stone is too big, based on this stone you will compare everything else. ‘Oh, that stone is smaller than this. That stone is equivalent to this. This stone is a little bigger than this.’ So, based on the stone which attracted your attention due to its qualities, based on that you will compare all other stones, everything around it, and try to grasp, understand. That is what exactly you are doing in your life. You try to gauge, study, cognize, understand everything, based on the idea “I”, “Aham”. The “I” is the most heaviest thing which you perceive in your life. You are literally in love with it! Understand? The “I”, which you perceive, the “I” which you experience the moment you wake up, till the moment you fall into deep sleep, even after that in the dreams, sometimes even in the deep sleep, the “I” which you are perceiving, experiencing, you feel it is so HEAVY, so IMPORTANT, so GLORIOUS! Because, only with that, the support of that, and its existence, you are able to perceive and enjoy, have all the moments, and able to relate with Existence. (more…)

Mahadeva is here to make you experience HIM


No Comments

The good news for you is: There is oneness between you and Mahadeva. 

The great news is: He is waiting to make you, give you that experience, understand? 

The good news is: There is oneness between you and Mahadeva.  The great news is: He is waiting to give that experience to you!  When you cognize Mahadeva, don’t cognize him as your competitor.  People think, ‘If I say I am Shiva, maybe he will be hurt.  He will ask: What?  You have become that qualified or what?  You have started telling “Shivoham”!’  No!  He will say, ‘Dear, start telling “Shivoham”.  I will make you qualified.’  He is not going to demand Entry Ticket and qualification certificate to give you the experience of Shivoham.  He is only going to say, ‘Start.  I will give you the qualification.’

So, cognize always Mahadeva as a person who is sitting, encouraging you to start, and he will give you the experience.  Don’t cognize him as a rough person, sitting, ‘Oh, you have become qualified?  You started telling “Shivoham”?  Even Narayana has not yet achieved that experience!  You think you will achieve?’  No!  He is not there to tell that, and he is not that type, I am telling you!   I am telling you the truth as it is.  When you say “Shivoham” and unable to maintain that powerful space and fall, he will only come and tell, ‘Don’t bother.  Repeat more and more, cognize more and more, behave, act, live, more and more like Shivoham.’  There will be some part hypocritical.  There will be some kind of hypocrisy in the initial level. Don’t bother. Start. That will be aligned!

So, understand, He is here to make you experience Him, because oneness between you and Him is Consciousness, understand?  He is waiting to have you as part of him.  He is waiting to receive you to be with him.  He is waiting for you.  You don’t even need to knock on the door.  Go near the door; it is open!  He is standing to receive you!  The very idea “door is locked and you need to knock” is a stupid idea given to you!  And you started believing it, because, you never went near the door!  From a distance you assume the door is locked, you have to knock.  No!  Go near.  It is open!  He is standing there to receive you!

Why is Mahadeva having poison in his throat?


1 Comment

Somebody asked me, ‘Swamiji, why is Mahadeva having poison in his throat? Neelakanta (the blue-throated one)! After all it did not affect Him, it did not go inside. Can’t He just throw it out? Why is HE keeping it in his throat continuously?’

Understand the secret: All medicines are poison! That is why in Siddha Tradition, we have a word “paashaana”; means, “medicine”, “poison”; for both, the word is “paashaana”. The “Haala-haala”, the ultimate poison is the ultimate medicine for all diseases! He (Neelakanta/Mahadeva) keeps that in his throat. Just by his words which come from the throat, or the breathing air which comes from the throat, he heals everyone. Because, when it is with Mahadeva, it is no more the “poison- paashaana”, it is the “medicine-paashaana”, understand? In the hands of murderers, even medicine becomes poison. In the hands of Mahadeva, even poison becomes medicine! He did not want to spit it out because these fools will gather it and use it as poison. So, he feels, ‘Better be there (in his throat), so it will be used only as medicine.’ The most safe locker to keep the poison is His throat! So he keeps it there and makes sure nobody misuses it, and it is used always for the good of the society, humanity. Neelakanta, Mahadeva, keeps the poison just to use as medicine.

After a long time, I took to Parivrajaka Yatra for few days, last few days, preparing my body and mind, spending little time in Omkareshwar, and literally prepared my body and mind and of course, consciousness doesn’t need any preparation – to give the experience of Shivoham to all of you. Listen, the few realizations I wanted to share with you all from the last few days of my spending time with myself. Please understand, that is tapas for me. I don’t do any other tapas other than just being with me, Upanishad with myself, Atma Upanishad, sitting with the Soul, sitting with the Cosmos.

The first thing I wanted to tell all of you, Shivoham, the experience that you are the Cosmos, the ultimate Advaithic experience, is simply possible! You don’t need anything other than little bit of settling down, understand. See, when I tell you, ‘You are Mahadeva; remember Shivoham!’ the number of questions crosses you are the impossibilities which hits at you at that moment, saying, ‘how can I be? No, no’. Actually, your logic will not even be fully uttered.

You will just deny, ‘Nothing! Impossible! Forget about it! I have so much problems! Shivoham?

If I am Shiva, then Shiva must have lived really a bad life!’

HAHAHAHAHAHA!

Instead of you going up to the level of Mahadeva, you will bring Mahadeva down to your level!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

See, when I tell you, ‘You ARE Shiva! You ARE the Cosmos!’, the first initial self-denials which comes, the speed with which they are attacking you, just you need to reduce the speed of that; that’s all; nothing else!

Last few days I was literally doing mono-acting. Means, I became you and retained My original space and tried to become original Me. Means, the Jeeva becoming Shiva, from all dimensions I was playing, from all possibility I was working on this – Jeeva becoming Shiva – and looking at what all the ways more, what all the doors, new doors which I have not yet opened, I can open for all of you to experience Shivoham. Actually, that was the theme with which I was just sitting with myself for last few days. I don’t know how many days; maybe four days or five days, I don’t know….whatever. I was just sitting with myself spending time; what all the ways I can open the door of Shivoham to all of you. I think almost six days, ok, and nights; because I don’t have something separately called sleep. Day and night I was just sitting with myself. So, becoming the Jeeva, and trying to reach Shiva – it was a nice game within myself – and see the possibilities, see how the different complex patterns give you suffering, how they are able to convince you more than Me.

Janma karma cha me divyam evam yo vetti tattwatah;

Tyaktwa deham punarjanma naiti maameti so’rjuna!

Krishna says He who knows in true light MY divine birth and action, after having abandoned the body, he is not born again, he comes to ME.

Bhaktyamam abhijanati yavan yaskasmi tattvatah, tatomam tattvato jnatve visate tadanantaram!

Devoted to Me in the Truth, what and who am I, knowing the truth of Me, he enters into the Supreme.

Krishna is such an orator, who can verbalize the whole Truth in such an amazing way! Not just Bhagwan, God, Poornavatara who had Saraswathi in his tongue and Lakshmi in His hrudaya and Devi in his being, courage, Poornavatara. No, every time you read even one sloka of Gita, you see it clearly again and again, the most precise, the most sophisticated expression of the Truth as it is. Especially the Royal Sanskrit.

See, the Sanskrit also has a version which used by common men, the version which was used by Pundits, the version which was used by Rishis, the version which was used by Kings. Krishna uses the version which was used by Kings and Rishis, like the english of J Krishnamoorthi. The English I am using is more or less the english used by common men, or a little bit used by the masters like Osho, Vivekananda, but J Krishnamoorthi’s english is the royal English, used by the elite. The Tamil I use is the Tamil used by the elite. Actually, the Tamil I can play both game; I can be slang of village or rural slum or the rishis Tamil or Tamil of the siddhas or Tamil of the kings; but English is the common man’s, or a little bit masters like Osho or Vivekananda. Here the Sanskrit Sri Krishna is using is the Sanskrit of Kings, elite. Every time I read even one verse of the Gita, I just remember the personality Krishna would have been carrying, and the way He lived, which is the perfect blend of an amazing Rishi and an amazing King. If I have to compare, I can only compare with the Tamil used by Meenakshi; there are many verses attributed to Meenakshi, the songs and verses, I can be sure it is from Her only, just by the language, because she carries the language of the Siddha and Queen, the language of elite.

The science of Sri Vidya says each of those lotus petal, actually 16 lotus petal, then 8, then 43 triangles, then bindu; and below that 6 lotus petals, and 3 square lines. Now each of those energies revealing the ideal they represent; the satyas they represent. Maybe once the energizing process is over, when we connect everyday satsang and the whole Sri Chakra, we will know clearly which Devi represents which great Truth, Advaitha Satya, It is one of the greatest and most exciting Truth, because such powerful revelation, I was so excited, Listen! All of us are always in the space of Advaitha, whether you are completely unaware, unconscious, or you are in the peak of realization! Please listen. The practical implications of this Satya need to be understood.

See, if your inner space is in the mode of self-denial, you will have exactly the friends, family, people with self-denial only falling in your eyes, senses, perception. If you are in the mood of Completion, you will have only the people want to do Completion falling in your perception. Listen!

So, whether you are in the state of a devil, demon, bhoota, preta, rakshasa, mooni, kinnar, gandarava, aksha, rakshasa, rishi, whatever space you are in you are in Advaitha! So that can never be lost! If you are in the space of completely denying you, you will exactly perceive only those people who are also in self denial and denying you; you will be denying them, they will be denying you, both of you will be having a great Indian mother in law, daughter in law, relationship. Then, if you decide to Complete, suddenly everyone around you will be struggling towards Completion.

Understand, when you allow the higher intelligence of you to pull you up, raise you constantly, suddenly you will perceive Guru happening in your life, because your own part of you, which is constantly pulling you up, only allows the Guru to happen in your life and continue to exist in your life. Only then you perceive Guru in your life. If you are in the level of, “oh, he has stolen my 200 rupee, he may steal my plastic bucket,” you will only have only the people around you, in your perception,in your life style you will only have the people, who will steal your mug, jug, the cloth you kept without using, or the shampoo packet you hid under your pillow, you will exactly have only this kind of people in your perception. And, when you start perceiving, “oh, I will defame this fellow, I will destroy his identity,” you will see exactly that kind of people around you, who will be defaming you, and trying to destroy your identity.

Understand, listen, now I have to answer one of your important doubt: one of the devotee who came to see me was asking, “Swamiji, I am asking really, why did You come down to live with human beings?” I told her, “Relax, I am not living with you guys. I still have in My perception Nandi, Bhringi, Patanjali, Aghastiar, Rishis, Devaganas, Siddhaganas, only they are in My perception; I am around them only!” I allow the people with royal perception also to play with Me and evolve. Arunachala allows people to come up, Kailasha allows people to come up, but that itself does not come down to you! Kailasa doesn’t come down to your level, but it gives way for you to come up to Kailasa! I allow people to perceive Me from their perceptions, also. (more…)

Muscle-memory to Bio-memory, Bio-memory to Consciousness


No Comments

Whatever you do in your life every day, like how you wake up from the bed in the morning, how you brush your teeth, how you clean your body, how you dress up, how you eat, how you play or do some physical exercise, or how you work, or lie down, or sleep, all these physical activity which you are doing using your muscles, those patterns get engraved in your muscle-memory. Please understand, in your muscle-memory, they get engraved. For example, if your muscle-memory is programmed to sleep that morning five o’clock, even if you sleep whole day, that morning five o’clock you can’t open your eyes. Unless you complete with your muscle-memory, you can’t open your eyes even if you sleep whole day. Next day morning you may think, ‘Oh, yesterday whole day I slept. Today morning I will be able to get up five o’clock and go for Rudrabhishekam.’ No! Five o’clock, you will see you can’t even open your eyes, because, muscle-memory is programmed! Unless you complete with that muscle-memory and re-programme it, you can’t make.

The day-to-day activities done with the help of the muscles get programmed in muscle-memory, and the ideas based on which you make this decision, ideas based on which you make this decision, they get programmed in your bio-memory.

Please understand, I am defining Biology. Biology, please listen, Biology is the zone where your very core existence touches your body to operate. The heart, the heart muscles, heart muscles does not have muscle-memory, please listen. Heart, your physical heart does not have muscle-memory. That is why, fortunately, it is running on its own! It does not have muscle-memory. It cannot be controlled by your muscle-memory. It is controlled by your bio-memory. The brain tissues, they do not have muscle-memory. It is controlled by your bio-memory. Wherever your consciousness, your soul, the Jeeva, the Individual Soul connects with your body to operate your body, means, the decision-making points, where the decisions are made, where constantly the decision-making mechanism is stored, that point is what I call ‘bio-memory’. Listen to these terms, because, if you understand this, it can really open up the experience of Shivoham in you.

Listen! ‘Muscle-memory’ is your actions, pattern of your actions. ‘Bio-memory’ is pattern of your decisions. ‘Cause’ is bio-memory; ‘Effect’ is muscle-memory. Listen! ‘Cause’ is bio-memory; ‘Effect’ is muscle-memory. If this pillow is muscle-memory, what is the cause of this pillow? The cotton, source material; that source material is bio-memory. (more…)

Cognition to become Shiva


No Comments

The FIRST LOGIC you have to establish in yourself is: ‘My guru is the ultimate spiritual expression I know.  As far as I know, my guru.  There might have been bigger or smaller (gurus), I don’t know.  But, whatever I know….  There might have been the greatest whisky, brandy, coffee, tea….might have been, might be….but what comes in my cup only I can drink.  The best I can, I get it to my cup.  The best I can is my guru…I know is my guru.  That is the best spiritual expression I know.  He told me clearly I am Mahadeva.  Then, this is the path I need to start walking.’  That is the first logic you need to establish in you.

SECOND: ‘He did not tell me if I become like this I am Mahadeva, if I behave like that I am Mahadeva, if I reduce my tummy I am Mahadeva or clean my face I am Mahadeva or shave my hair I am Mahadeva or leave my hair long I am Mahadeva.  No!  He said, ‘You ARE Mahadeva as you are’.  Then the whole problem boils down to somewhere me not accepting it.  There is no other factual, logical point that why I am not Mahadeva.’

Please understand, there is a vast difference between the stone temple built like this with a pillar, and this decoration structure.  This is a decoration structure.  Both may look like same, but there is a vast difference.  Same way, all the reason why you think you are not Mahadeva are like this, the decoration pieces reason.  Not, even though it looks like factual, but not factual reasons.  Listen!  Listen!  This may look like pillar, but this cannot do the job of the pillar.  It can be a decoration as pillar. 

Same way, the reasons you have why you are not Mahadeva are not factual.  They are not cognizable. They are not real in Cosmic Law of Life.  Because, your guru did not tell you if you become this, this, this, you are Mahadeva.  No!  I might have told if you experience Shivoham, this, this, may express through you.  But I never tell; if I told I am withdrawing.  Even if you understood, or heard, I am withdrawing those statements.  No pre-condition for Shivoham.  Shivoham is the unconditional truth.  Shivoham is the unconditional apology Maya gives you, delusion gives you.  It says, ‘You are That!  Sorry for deluding you for all these days.  Please forgive me.  Unconditionally I am apologizing and leaving you.’   (more…)

Whatever you strongly believe is where you are going to land up, you start experiencing that now itself !

Listen! It is the fear of the fear which makes you frightened, worrying about worrying makes you worried, anxiety about anxiety makes you anxious, the knowledge about knowledge makes you ecstatic. Listen! The fear of fear makes you frightened. The fear that there is some fear going to come makes you frightened. Anxiety about anxiety makes you anxious. The anxiety some anxieties may come makes you anxious now. Worry about the worry makes you worrying. The worry that some worries may come which you will not be able to handle, makes you worrying now. I tell you, knowledge about the knowledge going to come makes you knowledgeable now. Bliss about the bliss going to come makes you blissful now. If you know the end of your game is not fear, not anxiety, not worrying, the end of your game is going to be bliss, Shivoham, it makes you blissful immediately!

What you believe as end of your game, if you believe you are going to end in the worst anxiety, death, it makes you anxious now itself. If you believe you are going to end in fear, it makes you fearful now itself. If you know you are going to end in Shivoham, till then you can’t end, it makes you blissful now itself. Knowing the intoxication of being Shiva, trance of being Shiva, bliss of being Shiva, only in that space you can end, till then you have to keep going, going, going, everything else comes will pass, that clarity itself – ‘any day I am going to end only in bliss.’ – that itself makes you blissful immediately, understand! Whatever you strongly believe is going to be the end, you start tasting that now itself. Whatever you strongly believe is where you are going to land up, you start experiencing that now itself. ‘Any one day you are going to end up in suffering only!’, this statement makes so much sense for you. ‘Any one day you are going to only end up in Shivoham!’ this statement doesn’t make much sense. That is where the whole problem is; that is the pattern.

I tell you, thinking that there will be some fears you will not be able to handle, frightens you now. Thinking there may be some worries in the future you will not be able to handle makes you worrying now. Thinking that there will be some anxieties you will not be able to handle then makes you anxious now. But knowing there is Shivabodha, knowing the bliss of being Shiva is waiting for you, that is your life, that is your end, that is your goal, if you fall you will fall only into that, knowing that makes you experience the intoxication of being Shiva now! Delusion, the wrong beliefs, stops you from intoxication of being Shiva. Initiation melts them down and makes you experience the intoxication of being Shiva. Kundalini is the injection. Kundalini Shakthi is the injection to give you that bliss of being Shiva which is given to you by the initiation, the touch.

Shiva, lord of all the celebrations and festivals, lord of all the rituals, who receives the first ‘aahuthi’ in all rituals, Mahadeva, the principles Mahadeva represents…. Please understand, if your lifestyle is vegetarian, even one or two days by mistake some non-veg has entered into the body, you can’t be called as ‘non-vegetarian’. The principle for which you stand is vegetarian, then you are vegetarian only. That is just a mishap. Just because one accident happened in your life and you died, you can’t say you never lived! Like that, the principle for which the person stands, if you study, the principles which Mahadeva represents, which Mahadeva is the solidified expression, those are the Hindu fabric, the principles of that Hindu society, in a way, the universal society. ‘Thyaaga’, he is sacrificing for people who don’t even know or recognize his sacrifice is needed for them. When you work for people who don’t even recognize your work for them, that is ‘Thyaaga’. The power he represents, the possibility he represents! HAHAHAHAHAHA!

All the great truths Mahadeva represents, that is the basis of social fabric; even though he himself is portrayed or looks like anti-social, he is not anti-social. Above social! You cannot frame him at all. He is a Paramahamsa, all the time sitting in Samadhi. But you can’t call him a ‘Sannyasi’. He has Matha Parvathi, and one Ganesha, Subrahmanya. In some of the Shaiva traditions, even Kaalabhairava and Veerabhadra were shown as sons! And then there is always people who are there to create controversies – ‘How can you have Ayyappa with Vishnu?’ All types of controversies! People who create controversies are not something new; they exist as old as Mahadeva! You can’t call him (Mahadeva) as ‘Grihastha’ (householder), because he is Thyaagaraja. The beautiful ‘griha’, the golden city Vishwakarma (architect of the Gods) built for Mahadeva, literally he (Vishwakarma) poured himself and made that city. It is like you work so much and you put your best and make a beautiful house, suddenly, the priest who came and did the house-warming ceremony (griha pravesha) for you asks you, ‘Give me this house!’, what will happen? You will kick him out! But, Mahadeva just gave that house, gave that city! That is Lankapuri (Sri Lanka). (more…)

Invoke Shiva in you !

First, today, Nithyanandeshwara Brahmotsava main day, Mahadeepam, the day Mahadeva appeared as a light shaft and blessed Brahma and Vishnu with enlightenment. This is the very day He gave enlightenment to Devi and gave His half to Devi, became Ardhanarishwara. Today morning we had Mahotsava in all the temples, garba mandirs, the main light is lit in Bidadi, we had Mahanirani celebration, Bidadi temple was lit, and today evening, sharp 6 o’clock, we will be having Mahadeepam, the main lamp will be lit. I request all the devotees, in your area, the tallest hill, please light the lamp in adherence to the legalities of your country. And, let’s receive Bidadi’s offering to Mahadeva, let’s receive His blessings.

Shivoham! This truth is not only a reality, it can be a powerful medicine, antidote, for all the root patterns you develop, parental conditionings you develop, societal conditionings you develop, and all the patterns with which you struggle, suffer. Understand, all the patterns with which you struggle and suffer, Mahadeva releases you; Mahadeva, listen, releases you from all the conditionings the moment you remember, meditate, create the space of, Shivoham.

You need to know, Mahadeva is not the totality of some dead qualities; it’s like if you have poverty, meditate on richness, no! That is only a formula. If you are weak, meditate on power, you’ll receive power, it’s a technique! If you are ignorant meditate on knowledge; it is a methodology. Mahadeva is not just totality of some good qualities, He is Alive when you invoke Him, when you invite Him, He just happens so powerfully, so beautifully, so alive, living, He just makes all this parental conditioning, social conditioning, societal conditioning, root patterns, engrams, He just makes them disappear, melts them away. When you invoke Mahadeva, Shivoham, don’t think it is a technique. It does the help of technique, also. If you do a technique, what all help will happen to you, what all the good things will happen to you, that also happens when you invoke Mahadeva in you, but, that does not mean, but that does not mean, Mahadeva is a totality of these few dead qualities! No! He is a living, vibrant consciousness! See, if it is a technique, for example, if you have 5 layers of ignorance, if you meditate on knowledge, till the 5 layers melt down, you will experience the knowledge. If you feel week last 10 years, if you meditate on power 10 months, you will feel power. That is a technique. If you have a blockage in kundalini energy flow, blow nose, do pranayama and kriya properly, kundalini will be awakened, that is a technique. But, when you meditate Shivoham, it is not the strength of your meditation is going to decide the experience, no; He is conscious intelligence, you invoke Him, request Him, “Prabho, please be awakened in this body, mind, buddhi, intelligence. Let You radiate whatever I know as me, aham, I am surrendering, completing it at your feet, let You be!” The experience of Shivoham, explosion of Shivoham, does not happen based on the strength of your practice, no. It happens because He is intelligent. He is consciousness, so He just explodes. It is not like a technique, what you do, you get result. No. You invoke Him, He fills you, He is there, He is there, He is there.

So don’t think “if I chant crore times Shivoham, Mahadeva may occupy my whole being, I may experience Shivoham.” No, He is not going to see your japa bank balance; no. You invoke Him, He is there, because He is consciousness. Understand. This is the biggest difference between atheistic non-dual philosophies and theistic non-dual philosophies. In atheistic, listen, in atheistic non-dual theories they say “any quality you meditate, you imbibe,” in theistic non-duality, we say, “the source of that quality is intelligence, so it fills you the moment you invoke It.” Shiva is not just the totality of a few auspicious qualities so by meditating you become that; He is totality of all auspicious qualities and consciousness, that is why when you invite Him, He graces, radiates, through you!

Not only He introduces Himself to you, He introduces Himself through you to everyone. He introducing Himself to you is authenticity; He introducing Himself through you to others is enriching.

Mahadeva is the conscious intelligence, Shivoham is not technique, it is a conscious process. Meditate on Shivoham! Don’t think your japa repetition, the strength of your meditation, is going to bring the result; no, He is conscious intelligence, you meditating is nothing but you invoking Him, requesting Him to fill you, to radiate through you. Mahadeva, Mahadeva, is pure consciousness. Mahadeva is embodiment of purity. Mahadeva is alive. I can’t say just because I chanted Shivoham millions of times, I started experiencing Mahadeva, no. Just because He is Consciousness, He accepted My request to walk into Me, He started radiating Himself through Me. Understand, He is consciousness is the good news I want you to know, He accepts even just one request, He is Bholenath, His presence is not heavy, demanding; He is not Vaikuntavasi, who needs Lakshmi to press feet, Anantasesha to make bed, milk ocean for His presence, and all the best things, Shamantaka, the greatest jewellery for wearing. I am not disrespecting Vishnu, all I am telling is Mahadeva is Bholenath. Even if you’re already depressed like a cremation ground, your mind is dull, dead, even then, He is happy to dance there, and, all your thinking, feeling, everything is full of negativity, negativity, negativity, negativity like a ghost, even then, He is ready to have you as His companion. Understand, He is too simple, and His presence is not that heavy; powerful, but not heavy. Heavy means demanding. Powerfulness is different, heavy is different. He is Bholenath; His presence is never demanding. His presence is so powerful, but not demanding. Understand, invoke Him, request Him, pray to Him, ask Him, invite Him, to your inner space.

“Mahadeva, whatever I know as aham is a bunch of my root patterns, social conditionings, parental conditionings, layers and layers of patterns, samskaras, and past life karmas, but, this is not too big for You, You can burn all this, and this cannot be the reason why You are not happening through me; can this stop You happening in me? I am completing this and surrendering at your feet oh Prabho, let aham become Shivoham! Let aham become Shivoham!”

Invite Him, invoke Him, request Him, understand He is conscious, alive, present. I can’t say He happened to Brahma and Vishnu and Devi on this very day; I should only say He is still happening! He is happening! It is past present future continuous tense. I have to create a new tense, not past, present, future or continuous; past-present-future-continuous tense, that is the meaning of Eternal; understand, He is Bholenath. He is Powerful, but He is not heavy. He is not demanding. You can have 10,000 SDHD, self doubt self hatred self denial, but that cannot stop Mahadeva getting invoked in you! He can just happen and remove burn all those SDHDs in a second! The moment you invoke Him, He burns it away! I tell you, Shivoham is not just technique; it is a space! It’s a powerful space. Radiate the power of Mahadeva. Radiate the power of Mahadeva. Radiate the power of Mahadeva. Shiva! Shiva! Shiva!

As I said, because He is not a demanding being, there is no pre-condition, who can experience Shivoham, who can’t experience Shivoham, no. Invite Him authentically, invoke Him authentically, you will merge in Him, He will merge in you. The ocean of consciousness, pure consciousness, Mahadeva, happens and radiates, He radiates, He happens. Shiva! Shiva! Shiva! Shiva Shiva Shiva Shiva!

Invoke Him, invite Him, to radiate in your inner space. With the power of Shivoham. Making Shivoham as an experience.
