Bhakti

Shivoham, Spirituality, Third-Eye Awakening, Truth, Upanishads

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.

The Advaitha, please listen, Oneness becomes your reality with the Love Current of Mahadeva. Please understand, when you authentically experience Love Current of Mahadeva, the Oneness you experience will continue to keep you retain the juice of celebrating Mahadeva, understand? Today, I wanted to expand on some of the most subtle points.

यस्मिन् सर्वाणि भूतान्यात्मैवाभूद् विजानतः ।
तत्र को मॊहः कः शॊक एकत्वमनुपश्यतः ॥
Yasmin SarvaaNi Bhoothaani Aathmaivaabhoodh Vijaanathaha |
Tathra Ko Mohaha Kah Shoka Ekathvam Anupashyathaha ||

“In one who has cognized the reality, all existing beings become the very Self. Then what delusion, what sorrow of incompletion can there be for that Seer living in the space of Oneness, Living Advaitha?”

Listen! The Love Current of Mahadeva leads you to Oneness experience. After that, after the experience of Oneness, the way you live will be the Love Current of Mahadeva, understand? Love is not just a path for experiencing Oneness. After experience the Oneness, the utility value of life itself is Love. If you start practicing love now, meditating on Love Current of Mahadeva, you will experience Oneness, and after experiencing Oneness, the way you operate, the way you cognize, the way you move, the way you live, the way you exist, the whole thing will be same Love in a different dimension.

Always there is a conflict between Advaithis and Bhakthas. Always Advaithis declare these Bhakthas as “Leelavaadhis”: ‘All the time talking about devotion, devotion; they never experience the Oneness.’ And, always these Bhakthas go on criticizing these Advaithis as “Mayavaadhis”, delusionists: ‘They don’t celebrate devotion and love.’ And there is also a subtle deep fear that if you experience Oneness, you may lose the devotion; it may all become all “Me”, “Me”, “Me”, “Me”. From the side of devotees, they feel, ‘Oh, if we experience Oneness, it will all become “Me”, “Me”, “Me”. Devotion will be lost.’ From the Advaithis, ‘Oh, if I experience devotion, that is all! The state I am in, I may lose it! I will fall into duality!’ It is such a stupid misunderstanding! (more…)

Discovering the context of Imperishable for all the major decisions of your life is Living Enlightenment

I will expand on Isavasya Upanishad. Usually when I come to Varanasi I speak on Kathopanishad. This time I decided I will continue on Isavasya Upanishad because last time we couldn’t spend much time on Kathopanishad. I was expanding on 14th verse of Isavasya Upanishad. 

sambḥutiṁ ca vināśaṁ ca..

Actually I am uttering only one word. One word easily you all can recite. Listen and repeat. You don’t have to feel intimidated, ‘Oh Sanskrit. I don’t know.’ I am not giving you long words. Please understand, these sounds are very powerful, they can sit inside your inner space, go on purifying on. They are like powerful inner purifiers. So listen and recite.

sambḥutiṁ ca vināśaṁ ca yastad vedobhayaṁ saha |

vināśena mṛtyuṁ tīrtvā sambhūtyāmṛtam aśnute || 14 || 

Just recite. It’s the 14th verse of Isavasya Upanishad. I will give you the translation.

One who cognizes the pure essence of these both—the imperishable consciousness, the cause of manifestation and the destructible, the perishable, manifested entities, simultaneously—such a person completes with the fear of death and transcends death by worshiping or by knowledge of the perishable entities; and reaches the imperishable consciousness; celebrates the nectar of immortality and bliss, the eternal space of oneness.

Now listen. It’s the literal translation I have read out. The key word in this whole Upanishad, you need to understand. What Upanishad is trying to convey it to you. Listen. (more…)

What is Kundalini?


No Comments

KUNDALINI! The very word creates some vibration in our inner being! One of the most powerful, most important truths you need to understand, and most misunderstood! Some of the most important truths in life are only most misunderstood words in life. Death, Sex, Meditation, Kundalini, all these words, most important words you need to understand, most important concepts you need to understand, unfortunately most misunderstood words. But, one good thing: All these most important, most misunderstood words, like Kundalini, Sex, Death, Meditation, all of them are inter-connected. Today, I will expand on Kundalini.

Let me give you the understanding about Kundalini.

First thing, Kundalini is your inner potential energy. If you have diabetes, high blood-pressure, how much ever you try using your fear or greed to push yourself to work, there will be an extraordinary tiredness beyond your mental will, decision, there will be a force pushing you to bed, pushing you to sleep. Please understand, if you had this experience you will be able to understand what I am saying. Kundalini is exactly opposite to that. How much ever the outer situations try to suppress you, push you, shrink you, it will just expand you and make you vibrate with this power. (more…)

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…)

Listen, every moment the happening in you, means your Life. Listen carefully..Life. You may be marching towards your goal to achieve something in the outer world or inner world or you may just be confused and stuck. Whatever, but Life IS happening to you. Please understand, even feeling confused and getting stuck, is Life happening. Sometime people feel, you are not even letting us live in confusion and depression little bit. Understand, confusion and feeling stuck, is Life happening. Life happening. So, in this happening of Life, whenever you change the game, like the rules with which you need to play with the matter, if you play it with Consciousness; the rules with which you need to play with Consciousness, if you play with matter.

A ship is very safe, most secured in the port, when it docked, whatever, but it is not created just for that purpose. Understand, if you always decide based on law of life — if the ship is parked or locked in the port, it is very safe, most secured. Yes, no doubt! But the purpose of ship is not just being docked in the port.

Law of life is only teaching about the most secure things. Flow of life is exciting, adventurous, innovating, opening up different possibilities. (more…)

First and foremost commandment of Hinduism is THOU SHALL NOT DIE!


No Comments

There is so much of powerlessness, powerlessness based focus on Death. But, if you turn your attention on dying, the powerlessness will be removed from Death. If you are waiting for Death to stare at you, you are waiting for powerlessness to overpower you. If you are staring at Him, when He is staring at somebody else, you are removing the powerlessness from Death. Understand, as a Hindu Incarnation, authority on Hindu tradition, Upanishad, and the Hindu way of living and Hindu goals, Hindu ambitions, I tell you, first and foremost commandment of Hinduism is THOU SHALL NOT DIE.

Do what it takes. Do what it takes. THOU SHALL NOT DIE—that is the first and foremost commandment for Hindus. Fools are those who die, stupid are those who plan for liberation after death, Hypocrites are those who never look into the eyes of death while living. Criminals are those who are diverting others attention also from the Death by stupid, shallow, shady lifestyles. Any lifestyle which is trying to divert your attention from looking into the eyes of Death and ability to go beyond the death, that life is shady, shallow, stupid, hypocritical, blind. Criminals are those who are promoting those lifestyles and diverting your attention from the original need of life, going beyond death. (more…)

Upanishads make you live Advaitha by giving you Sacred Knowledge, Sacred Sentiment and Sacred Cognition.

Satchidananda is not delusion or illusion or imagination. Satchidananda, living Satchitananda is possible. That is the first statement I want to give about Living Advaitha.

Second: The understandings you need, understandings you need for the spiritual possibility, understandings you need for the spiritual possibility, listen, the understandings you need for the spiritual possibility is “Jnana”, Sacred Knowledge.

Sacred Sentiments you need to have, you need certain kind of emotional strength when you go through the transformation. When you start living Advaitha, certain emotional strength is required, and the intensity of the passion and emotion can be used to explode into Living Advaitha to take you to the next, next, next levels.

Having all the necessary intellectual understanding to live Advaitha is “Jnana”. Having all the intellectual understanding, listen, having all the necessary intellectual understanding is “Jnana”.

Having all the necessary feeling-connection strength to live Advaitha is “Bhakthi”.

Having all the necessary cognitions to live Advaitha is “Vijnana”.

Listen! Having all the intellectual understanding which is necessary to live Advaitha.

Living Advaitha” means, radiating all powerful, all knowledge, always blissful, Satchidanandamaya.

Satchidananda is not a fantasy, please be very clear. It is not a fantasy of the Hindu brain. No! It is not a fairy tale from some old rishis of Taraka Vana or Naimisharanya. No! Listen! Listen! Satchitananda is not fantasy. It is reality! Satchitananda is reality! I am not interested in debating with the people who call this as fantasy. I am only interested in giving this experience to people who want to receive it. With more debates, more time will be wasted. I am not interested in that. I am not interested in leading to unnecessary debate; but I am always ready to clarify all the possible doubts. (more…)

When people are happy seeing the beauty of deities, deities are also happy.


No Comments

See, just to see the joy in your eyes only I am wearing all this snake, all this jewelries. Otherwise, what will I do with all these? But, when I see joy in your eyes, I feel joy. When I see you are enjoying, I am enjoying. It is for you to enjoy I am….. Because you are enjoying, I am enjoying it. Otherwise, I myself have no enjoyment. That is why all these stupid fellows who are criticizing me for my wardrobe, were shocked one day suddenly I declared ‘all right I took the Madurai Adeenam responsibility, I am not going to wear anymore color dresses other than this cloth.’ They were shocked. How can he give up just like that? We don’t have now any material to criticize him’ ha ha ha ha. Because they were constantly criticizing ‘oh he wears all color clothes, he dresses up himself’ all that. Suddenly one day I declared ‘no more color dresses; only I will use this color because I took the responsibility of Madurai Adheenam’; because I myself never have any attachment to any of that. You enjoy I say ‘all right you enjoy I enjoy’. For the sake of devotees come on! That’s it. So deities are also very happy when devotees enjoy their beauty. When devotees are happy seeing their beauty, they are also happy; that’s all! My blessings to all you guys!

Spirituality, Upanishads

No one can take away the Mahadeva component of you !


No Comments

Nothing, nothing, as I said, nothing at all is said extra in the Upanishads. As I said, you cannot edit them. No editing is possible. It is so precise, perfect! And, you cannot comment on it. Nothing extra can be added to it. May be you can highlight something and go on repeating it. You cannot comment on it.

नैनं छिन्दन्ति शस्त्राणि |

नैनं दहति पावकः ||

Nainam chindhanthi shasthraani |

Nainam dahathi paavakaha ||

(Weapons cleave It not; Fire burns It not.)

No one can cut it and take it away from you! No one can burn it and take it away from you!

All of us have the Mahadeva component in us. How much ever you deny, you do catch a glimpse of that, you do experience it. You can go on denying, ‘No, no, no, that and all is not there. Unnecessarily why should I imagine and create mess? No, no.’ You can go on denying, denying. See, for example, if I denied the existence of these plants and didn’t revere them, respect them for their existence, nothing, they may not have grown. They would just have had their usual growth. But the moment I respect their existence, they also respect their existence. The moment I respect you as a sannyasi, enlightened being, Mahadeva’s embodiment, Shiva Gana, you also start respecting you.

When you know the Mahadeva component in you is still active, alive, does not expire, you fall in love with you!

I tell you, falling in love with yourself is the only way to keep “Nithyothsaaha” – “Nithya Uthsaaha” – “eternal excitement”. (more…)

When there is devotion, eyes will have a smile :)


No Comments

Let me define “Bhakti”: 

“People who experience Completion out of the emotion which happens due to the higher consciousness pastimes”. 

Please understand, your pastime always leads you to incompletion. An incarnation’s pastimes always leads you to Completion! If you constantly remember what you did when you were a child, you will be in more and more incompletion. If you constantly remember what Krishna did when he was a child, you will be more and more in the space of Completion!

Leela Dhyána! is such a powerful space creator! Beyond a certain level, your intellect will not have the strength to create a space. For example, when you learn about the power of the space, you will create a space:

‘Come on, I am creating the space to build ten ashrams, five temples, three-hundred ashramites, two-hundred sannyasis!’ You will fail…..you may fail in one item, means you may fail in one dimension. You may be successful in some. You might have created ten temples, you might have created five ashrams, but you would have missed in the sannyasis number. When you fail in one, you lose confidence over you. Again you will create a certain space: ‘I am creating the space for this and working…..’ You may fail in one or two things. Your intellect does not have the strength to stand up again and again and create the space and face those few failures when it happens in your life.

But the emotion – bhakti/devotion is so powerful, it can create again and again tirelessly, the right space for you. 

Only with intellect, by intellectually understanding Completion, Integrity, Authenticity, Responsibility and Enriching, when you fall you will collapse. But if you understand with emotion, with Leela Dhyana, with devotion, if you understand, even if you fall you won’t collapse. When you create the space along with the feeling connection, emotion, devotion towards the higher consciousness, I guarantee simply failure disappears from your system, because Krishna is not a story, Sundareshwara is not a story, Meenakshi is not a story. I can’t even say it has happened. I only can say it is happening whenever you remember them. It is not pastime; it is present times whenever you remember them.

Understand, I am not promoting any superstition, I am not promoting any lies, I am not promoting anything about which I myself have a doubt in a corner of my heart. No, I am very clear. (more…)

When the real relationship happens, even the stone can become God


No Comments

When there is no trust even if God comes down you will ask for ID card. When the trust happens, even the stone can become God. I tell you one thing, when really the relationship happens, the other person really looks like a God. She/He will look like a God and He/She will be God. It is not looking like a God, He/She will be God.

Vivekananda gives a discourse in one place, when He speaks He says “Ramakrishna is God”.

Somebody asks Him, “How can you say He is a God?. You can say He is an enlightened person, a Guru. How can you say He is a God”.

Vivekananda says “He is much more than what you know as God. Whatever you know in the name of God, He is much more than that”. Naturally we can’t accept. It is very difficult.

The guy started fighting, how can He be God, this and that.

Then Vivekananda starts asking “What do you know by the name God?”.

The person says “Omnipresent, Omnipotent, Omniscient”.

Then Vivekananda asks “What do you know by the word ‘Omniscient’ ? What do you know by the word ‘Omnipresent’ ?”.

 “Omnipresent – He is present everywhere”.

“What do you know by the word – He is present everywhere. It means He is inside this pillar”.

The person says “Yes, He is inside the pillar”.

Vivekananda – “Then He is inside the pillar material or He is the pillar material”.

The guy says “He is inside the pillar material”.

“Then what about the pillar material, He is not the pillar material?”.

When Vivekananda started questioning, the guy who said Omnipresent, he just started – “No, no,  I don’t understand. I know only few words”.

Vivekananda says “You know only few words about God. Whatever you know about God is only idea, it is just few words, it is not God. You only have idea, I have experience. Ramakrishna is far more superior than all your concept of God”.

Enlightened Master’s are far more superior and higher than your idea of God. 

When the real relationship happens, you really experience the Master as a God. People come and ask me, “Swamiji are you God ?”. I tell them “That depends on you”. They ask “What is this ? How can you say that ?”. 

But true when you really open up and fall in tune, whatever you know as God, whatever you think God can do, all that will be happening in your life through My form. If you think that ‘God will appear in front of you and answer your questions’, you will see that I am appearing and answering. If you think that ‘God will appear in your dreams and heal you’, you will see that I am appearing in your dreams and healing.

When you fall in tune and open up, whatever you think God will do to you, everything will be happening through Me to you. When you are closed, even if I am God I can’t help you.

Feeling connection/Devotion is the ultimate technique. You don’t need any other solution, method to get out of any problem. Problems of planets, disease, negativity, black magic, anything. One feeling connection is enough.

“Unclutching – De-program the inner self” (part 2)


1 Comment

….. continued from “Unclutching – De-program the inner self” (part 1)

Now we are coming to the initiation part. Any thought may suddenly click with you. Oh God! Yes that is what is going on in me, that is what I am doing. One important truth – even if you want, even if you try consciously, you cannot possess, sit, catch your suffering. Its a very important truth. Even if you try to catch, you cannot catch your suffering. Because continuously your suffering is also replaced by different thoughts.

One person came to me and asked “Swamiji, I am suffering from lustful thoughts. Please give me solution”.

I told him “Just sit. Half-an-hour your mind should not go anywhere else. Meditate on lustful thoughts. Think only lustful thoughts. No other thoughts allowed”.

In 10 mins he opened his eyes and said “I am not able to concentrate on lustful thoughts Swamiji”.

I said “What are you talking. You just now said that you are haunted by those thoughts. I asked you to meditate on it. Just be with it. Now you are saying your mind is not staying on those thoughts, your mind is going somewhere else.”

Understand, fortunately you can have only one thought at a time. Am I right ?. You can have only one thought at a time, the moment some other thought is coming in your inner space means the earlier thought has lost its power or influence over you. Am I right ? . Please follow with me in every statement. Fortunately you can have only one thought at a time, the moment a new thought has come inside your system the old thought has lost its power or influence over your system. For example, the moment you have decided to stand up and leave, you renounced the thought of sitting and listening. The moment you renounce the thought of standing and leaving, you decided to sit and listen. The moment you stand up, you renounce the thought of sitting. The moment you decide to sit down, you renounce the thought of standing up. Any thought which comes in you newly replaces the old thought. The old thought loses its power or influence over you by new thought. Am I right ?

One person came and asked me “Swamiji, I am haunted by death fear. I have so much fear about losing my wealth and about my death. Give me some solution. Please remove fear “.

I told him “Please have cup of coffee”.

He said “What do you mean Swamiji ?”.

I said “Think of having cup of coffee and have cup of coffee”.

He said “What is there. How can that help me.”

I said “The moment you are able to think you are having cup of coffee or decide to have a cup of coffee, the fear which is haunting your inner space has left your inner space”. Am I right ? Unless the death fear which is haunting his inner space leaves his inner space, he cannot think of having a cup of coffee. Am I right ?. So naturally, a simple thought to have a cup of coffee can remove the so called powerful death fear.

That guy said “No, no, no, Swamiji. It looks too simple. But the death fear comes back what should I do ?”

“If it comes back, have one more cup of coffee. That’s all”.

“No, no, no you don’t understand how seriously I am talking. You are playing with me”.

I said “I am not playing. Just simple thing. Understand, just simple understanding. Fortunately you can have only one thought at a time. The moment a new thought comes, it means the old thought has lost its power over you. Otherwise, new thought cannot come inside. The old thought cannot be replaced. If the old thought is so strong it will just multiply and sit on you. The moment a new thought comes it means the old thought has lost its power over you and it has left you. Only because of that a new thought can come inside. So, the moment you can have a thought to have a cup of coffee or cup of water, the so called death fear has left you”.

He is not able to understand. He said “No, no. It cannot be so simple. I am really having fear Swamiji. It comes back”.

I told him “Now you know the method how to replace the death fear once. Then do the same thing again and again. That’s all.”.

He said “I drank cup of coffee once. Next time what to do? “.

“Have a cup of butter milk. That’s all”.

Understand any thought which comes inside your inner space newly replaces the old thought. Even if it was worst fear. Even if it was worst depression. Even if it was worst suffering. Even if it was worst attachment. Even if it was lust. Anything it can be or anything it may be.  The new thought happening in you proves, your inner space is now replaced by a new thought. The old thought has lost its power over your inner space. Any thought which can lose its power over your inner space, why are you afraid of it. Why should you be afraid of it ?.

Constantly we are carrying the fear that we will not be able to conquer our fear. We are carrying the fear, we will not be able to go beyond our attachment. We are carrying the fear we will not be able to go beyond our suffering. Understand an important thing – this is what I call “the click”, “initiation” – If a thought can be replaced, if a thought can leave your inner space once. It means it can be again and again removed as many number of times as it comes. That’s all. People tell me “How many times I can replace ?”. What is there. Every time when it comes have a cup of water in front of you, sip once and keep it. Play with your mind. Tease your mind, till it stops. “It may look very funny. No, no, no it looks too simple. How can this be done. I may look like a mad person”. Nothing wrong. Looking is perfectly alright than being. If a new thought can replace the old thought, then naturally no thought can occupy or replace or possess your inner space eternally. This is what is the click, the basic truth. A simple thought like having a cup of water can replace the so called powerful death fear. It means what, all you need is cup of coffee to conquer your fear. All you need is cup of water to conquer your lust. But mind says “No, no, no. It is not that easy. No, no Swamiji, it comes back what to do ?”. If it comes back, you also again come back. You also again stand up. Understand if you can replace 10 times, the 11th time the thought will not come. The frequency will come down. Fortunately you have a pure inner space which doesn’t get corrupted by the flowing thoughts. An important thing – a fortunately you have a screen which doesn’t get burned by burning thoughts. If you project a burning scene on the screen will the screen be burnt ?. No. Same way, you have a pure inner space which does not get corrupted or polluted or get possessed by a particular idea or a thought. This understanding deeply can completely liberate you from all the sufferings you create for yourself. It can bring tremendous self healing to you, tremendous freedom to you and tremendous courage and confidence. You see, now, if any fear arises in you. What you need to do ? a cup of coffee. And one more thing, immediately mind will question – ‘No, if I handle all my fears like this, what will happen if my property is taken away. Who will maintain my family?’. Don’t bother. You have an innate intelligence which I call prarabdha. It is powerful enough, capable enough to manage your life using your body and mind. All you need to do is stop creating the sufferings which you are creating. Please be very clear, life does not happen because of you, life happens in spite of you. 

Come back, unclutch again and again. Do not clutch the thoughts and create or give meaning to it. Unclutch again and again, come back and rest. You may say “How to unclutch, I don’t think I can unclutch from my mind”. This very thought ‘I don’t think I can unclutch from my mind’. You have already unclutched. Because this new thought can come only if the old thought leaves you. Fear can come only if the lust leaves, lust can come only if the fear leaves. You can have a thought to have a cup of water only if the fear leaves. You can have a thought to have a cup of coffee only if the suffering leaves. The moment you are able to think that I should have a cup of coffee already the so called suffering has left. If a thought is sitting inside your inner space, how can you have a new thought, you can’t. Understand, handle your enemy one at a time. If you think – ‘No, no, no. Its a long story you don’t know Swamiji. I tried 1000 techniques, I can teach you many more techniques nothing works. And my mind is not that simple as you think. May be your mind is simple that is why it worked’. Please understand, even in foolishness we are not in peak. That is the one of the important truth we need to understand. All of us have a very clear idea we are in the worst ignorance. No, it is not. Just this simple one truth – If a simple thought of having a cup of coffee can come inside means, any serious thought, it may be pain or suffering or anything it can be, it has left me. That is why a new thought is able to come, that is why I have an inner space to entertain a new thought. So, as long as you have freedom to entertain a new thought, you have a inner space to entertain a new thought, be very clear you cannot be possessed or tortured by any suffering or by any depression or any pain.

Because you can just bring one more new thought, the moment you bring a new thought what happened, the old thought has left you. Unless it leaves, you cannot bring a new thought. So be very clear your power to bring a new thought itself proves that you have power to drop the old thought. Instead of looking at the ability to replace, you are looking at the ability to bring it back. You have both. If you are constantly looking at the ability to bring it back you will create suffering. If you are constantly looking at the ablity to remove you will feel liberation. Understand, what you mother that you hatch. Hen mothers the egg and chicken comes out. If you are mothering the thought – ‘you can replace any suffering’, you will bring that into reality. If you are mothering the thought – ‘whatever I replace will come back’, you will bring that in your experience. If you are mothering the thought that it is going to come back, it will come back. If you are mothering the thought that it is going to go out, it will go out. Where you put your awareness, where you put your attention is the important thing. Understand your very ability to get a new thought shows that you have ability to discard an old thought. Any thought can be discarded by any simple thought. This simple understanding is more than enough to unclutch and to rest.

One important thing, whenever any fear, any unsolvable problem comes, all you need to do from today is have a cup of water, that’s all. Your mind will get little perturbed and shaken. Your suffering can rule you just because you are afraid of it. Have you seen in the movies, the underworld don’s when they get created, they too will have deep fear. But just your fear towards them will empower them. Same way your mind too has fear about you. Your fear towards your mind just empowers your mind. Your mind also sometimes feels “Oh, what is this”.But you are more afraid of your mind then naturally what happens your mind gets empowered. One more thing, even once if you can replace your depression from your inner space have confidence that I have replaced, I can do it again. So, if it comes back 10 times, let me do it 10 times. That’s all.

There is a very beautiful story in  Buddha’s life. Buddha says “Whenever I sat in meditation that I am going to get up after few hours I never became enlightened. Once I decided if I am not going to become enlightened, I am not going to get up from this seat – idam asanam sushyate sareeram“. This sanskrit sloka means let this body dry up in this very place till I become enlightened, I am not going to move. The moment He created this strong clarity, authentic sankalpa (will), next second He become enlightened. All you need to do when you replace your suffering, if you are thinking – “No, no, 10 times today I can replace 11th time if it comes back tomorrow only I have to try”. Then nothing will happen. Decide till it stops coming, I am going to replace. Thats what I call courage – dheera. And once you have replaced means you can start laughing at it. “Arey! I was afraid of you so many years, I was getting shaken by you for so many years. All it takes to push you out is a glass of water or a cup of coffee”. Nothing else. A thought to stand up is more than enough to remove the worst suffering from your inner space. Whatever can be it looks too simple. That is why the problem is because it looks too simple, people come and tell me ” No, no Swamiji, it cannot be so simple. I think you missed some where Swamiji”. No, really people think, “He is too young may be He knows only few things. That is what He is teaching”. No that is the problem. Understand, truth is simple.

Ramana Maharshi sang a very beautiful song. He says “So easy the enlightenment science”. I tell you it is neither difficult nor easy. Even if you say it is easy there is little difficulty. It is not even easy it is constantly happening in you. Don’t you understand. Every moment a thought is being replaced by a new thought. Why are you afraid that you will bring your old thought back. Its like trashing your emails and bringing it back from a trash can. Relax!.

Constantly your thoughts are getting replaced, this itself shows nothing can possess your inner space. Nothing can over power you. Nothing can over rule you. You have independent intelligence to replace any suffering. You have freedom to replace any fear. You have freedom to replace any negativity.

Its a very simple truth. This is what I call “Unclutching”. If you can understand one truth and connect with this. If this one truth clicks, this can destroy the root of ignorance. The root of mind. Nothing else is needed. And one more important thing, nothing else can work. Please understand nothing else can work. Anything you try to do by creating a new thought, creating new idea.. people come and tell me “Swamiji, I want to escape from my suffering, should I chant some mantra“. I tell them that will become one more suffering. I have seen people chanting Rama, Krishna, Rama, Krishna, Rama, Krishna…..and in between shouting “Have you purchased the vegetables….Did you fill the accounts…then again Rama, Krishna, Rama, Krishna…”. Understand many time when you try to repeat something you create a new shaft. People feel offended, “how can you say mantra japa does not help. I am not saying it does not help. Of course let me tell you openly, it does not help. I just thought I will be socially polite. But let me be open. The satya is much more important than being socially polite. Understand, I tested it in my life for 10 years. Not with one mala, I will have 2 malas. By the time I finished both malas, I have chanted 10008 times. I have done Enough!. I tell you that only creates one more guilt that you are not able to do mantra continuously. Because by that time you move the next bead already one thought has come. If somebody records what happens in your inner space it will be like this – “Rama, Krishna, move the next bead, Rama, Krishna, move the next bead, Rama, Krishna, move the next bead”. This is what is going on inside. “Oh! I think I chanted too many times, let me count”. I know because I have done it. Not only that I have always seen people when they start counting the beads with closed eyes, after sometime they will touch the mala with other hand and see how long it is going to take. Is it going to take 5 more min or 3 more min, where that bead is there. Let me tell you its from my experience. Understand, an important truth do not try to create one more shaft. Just realize – the shaft which you believe as exists, does not exist. That’s all you need to understand and rest in that unclutched awareness – Nirvikalpa Satya. 

Let me explain exactly what is unclutching. When you sit silently, you will see so many thoughts coming up. Do not connect all of them and give a meaning to it. The moment you give meaning to the words either you will try to suppress or you will try to execute. Either you will try to go behind them or you will try to suppress them. Creating a thought is Brahma’s work, maintaining a thought  is Vishnu’s work, destroying a thought is Rudra’s work. If you stop doing all these 3 work, you will become parabrahman. That’s all. Creation, maintainence, destruction – relax from all three. Relaxing from all three is what I call unclutching. Let me give you one more detail or very strong truth – When a thought arises in you instead of giving meaning to it, just unclutch, means just relax to the source. When a thought arises if you start giving meaning to it, what you will do, either you will try to do what the thought says or you will try to suppress. Don’t do both. Instead of putting attention towards the meaning of the sound, just see the source of the sound. Then your mind will say – “I am feeling bored”. This is one more thought. How will you have the idea that you are feeling bored. The boredom which you experienced 10 years ago, the boredom which you experienced 9 years ago, the boredom which you experienced yesterday are independent experiences. Why are you connecting all of them and giving that idea “Boredom”. Only when you connect all of them and give the idea this is what is boredom, now you will think – “Yes, I am having the same experience. I am having boredom”. Do not connect and clutch and see. Just see. If your mind says “I am feeling bored”. Just say “What is boredom ?. Let me not give some meaning out of my past clutching. Let me see what you mean by boredom. Let me see how it feels like”. Attend your enemy one thought at a time. If you think all thoughts put together is your enemy, you empowered your enemy. When you work with your enemy, divide and rule. If you think all your enemies have gathered together, you will start having all unnecessary fears. Your enemies are not that intelligent as you think always. This is one of the important sutra. Even in your life, your enemies are not that intelligent and understanding and co-operative as you think. Just like you, they will also have problem among themselves. If you think your mind is your enemy, do not empower it by saying  – It is one single, huge organism. NO. Handle it one thought at a time. Because in your hand you have only one weapon, means you have only one thought. One thought is one weapon. With one weapon or one thought how will you handle 10,000 thoughts. No, you can’t. So, tell your mind, come one at a time, we will face each other. We will see face to face. Face every single thought, unclutch from every single thought. Your mind will say “No, no, half-an-hour I unclutched.  Now again thoughts are coming”. The unclutching happened 30 mins ago, the unclutching happened 20 mins ago, the unclutching happened 10 mins ago are totally different individual experiences. Why are you connecting all those experiences and feeling that this unclutching and that unclutching is same. No. This moment what is happening in me is an independent experience. You need to put your whole attention and awareness on this very subtle truth only then the click will happen. If the click happens you are blessed. Because this very single click can be used as a key for so many difficulties and problems in your life. It will revolutionize the way in which your mind functions, the way in which your mind makes decisions, the way in which your fears threaten you and your desires drive you crazy. The whole thing will be re-organized, the whole thing will be revolutionized. If you know any big idea or goal drives you crazy can be replaced just by a thought of having a cup of coffee. Will you have respect for that goal, will you have respect for that ideal. Suddenly you will see, what all you thought as goal, does not have any power over your inner space. You say “No, no, no. That and all is really needed for life. I don’t want to leave this, I don’t want to leave that”. You may try to catch here, there, here, there. But what to do even if you try to catch it is slipping. How long will you try to catch a river which is flowing. You can’t. Suddenly you will see an immovable, authentic self arises in you – this is what I call – living enlightenment.

An authentic being which does not need your mind to operate your body is what I call Living Enlightenment. Your being does not need your mind to run your body. If your mind is constantly staying inside you, it is just because of fear – what will happen to me, how will my body run if my mind leaves me. You do not understand if your mind leaves you, your life will happen in a much better way, in a much more intelligent way. Because your mind is culprit. Your thinking is problem. Your dilemma is suffering. Your movement is depression.

When you sit if thoughts are rising, just remember let me unclutch and unclutch. I am not going to empower this thought by following or by fighting. Let me unclutch. Again in 2 seconds one more thought will come, again let me unclutch. After few minutes you will see continuously you are repeating the thought – “I am unclutching, I am unclutching”. Then unclutch from that too. The moment you remember you, immediately unclutch. Unclutch from the very idea about you.

Understand, you have two identities. The identity which you carry and project to the outer world as you are, this is called ‘Ahamkara‘. And another one identity which you carry in you, which you believe as you inside your heart, this is called ‘Mamakara’. Your whole life is nothing but the fight between ahamkara and mamakara. How you want to project you and how you believe as you. What you want to project you and what you believe as you. Your life is nothing but the fight between these two identities. Ahamkara will always be much more than what you are – superiority complex. Mamakara will always be much lower than what you are  – inferiority complex. Your whole life is nothing but the suffering between this inferiority and superiority. Whether the thoughts are related to inferiority or superiority, neither give life nor suppress them. Just unclutch.

Now the important fear comes – “If I constantly unclutch who will run my life”. Understand, your prarabdha, with which you created your body, that is what I call bio-memory. Your  bio-memory is intelligent enough to run your body and maintain your infrastructure and expand your wealth. Trusting this truth is what I call “Bhakti”. Krishna says “Ananya-s-chintayanto Maam Yae Janaah Pary-upaasatae. Taesham Nithya-abhi-yuktaanaam Yoga-kshemem Vahami-aham” means “whoever resides in me, remembering constantly me, their needs and comforts, I myself bring and see that things stay with that person”. This assurance He gives for the people who have the fear of unclutching and relaxing. I tell you just try for 10 days, I am not saying try for whole life. Try unclutching for 10 days, if your balance sheet does not increase forget about Me and My technique. You will see it straight away adds to your life. Nothing will be reduced, nothing will be taken away. Your clarity, your profession, your relationship, your health everything will be added. 10 days constantly unclutch, whether you are eating, sleeping, driving, constantly try to unclutch. If it does not improve your life then forget about it. Don’t bother. I tell you, you will never miss it. I have seen how it just transforms your life. Don’t have this hypothetical fears. Mind exists based on hypothetical fears. If you look into the hypothetical fears mind will disappear. Do not entertain the hypothetical fears of your mind. Just try for 10 days. When I say this I am responsible for this words. Just try 10 days this unclutching, I assure, I have seen it only adds your health, adds to your wealth, adds to your well-being and adds to your relationship. Only your fear creates an idea that who will run my life. You will run your life in a much better way when you are unclutched.

You pick up few thoughts here and there. A conveyor belt is moving with thoughts on it, you pick up few thoughts and create a shaft. Either you pick up all sufferings and create a pain shaft or pick up all joyful memories and incidents and create a joy shaft. If you try to elongate the joy shaft or break the pain shaft both is impossible because the shaft does not exist. Third important thing, fortunately every new thought proves the old thought has lost its influence over your inner space. This proves no suffering can overtake you. Eternal hell does not exist. Understand, the eternal hell is a foolish concept taught to you to torture and frighten you. Because even here nothing can be eternal, it just moves. There is a beautiful one liner – you can’t step into the same river twice.  Because by that time you put your second step the river has moved. I tell you you can’t step into the same river even once, because by the time you put your foot and it reaches the ground, water has moved. Constantly the very replacement by new thoughts shows that you have a inner space which gets replaced, which gets rejuvenated, which gets refreshed, which is untouchable, which is pure. Because the inner space is pure you are able to have new, new thoughts. The new thoughts happening proves old thoughts have lost their influence over you. So, do not be afraid of depression, suffering, fear, desire or anything. Do not be afraid of internal enemies. Let you be liberated from the internal enemies.

And the last essence, the ultimate thing – Do not be afraid of unclutching. A small example, in North India they will have a strange way of trapping the birds. I have seen in my wandering. I have spent my 10 years in walking all over India, begging and eating and sleeping under the trees and meditating. I have seen in North India they will have a trap to catch birds. They will put a stick and hang it between two trees, that’s all. When this stick is hanging, the bird will come and sit on the stick. When it sits just because of its own weight, the stick will turn upside down as shown in the image below. This poor bird starts thinking that if it will relaxes or leaves the stick, it will fall and die. I have seen for hours the bird will be hanging, the poor guy will be fluttering, will be trying its best, shaking the wings. But he will be hanging thinking that if he relaxes or lets go, he will fall and break his head and die.

bird hanging from the stick

Have you heard anytime a bird falling from sky and breaking his head and dying, NO. Fool does not know that if he lets go he can just fly, he can be liberated. I have seen the bird will be hanging, this hunter will slowly come after 2-3 hours, pick up that bird and put it in the cage. How that foolish bird is thinking, if it lets go he will fall die. Same way we have the fear that if we let go of our mind, if we unclutch we will fall and our life will become mess, we will disappear. Understand, there is no record, the bird which opened up has fallen and died. Same way a person who has unclutched has lost something in his life. One more thing, the bird feels that the stick is a security, it hangs on to it. When the hunter comes not only he loses the stick which he thinks as security, he is eternally prison-ed. Same way what you think as security, your mind and life, if you hold on to it what happens when the hunter which is Death comes , not only what you think as security will be lost and also you will be put to death. Just like that bird in a very foolish way we are hanging to that stick, the mind, with the fear if we let go what will happen.  Sometimes I have seen the birds which are flying, they will come and poke this bird, and tell “Hey, let go, I had the same problem. When I relaxed I just started flying”. All it takes is 2-3 seconds to balance. The bird will be topsy-turvy, when it leaves, may be 2 second it will start falling, and it just turns and start flying. Courageously facing that 2-3 second chaos is what I call “Tapas”. When you unclutch, there will be some revolution in your life, in day to day thinking, decision making, in your daily routine, in your life style. Courageously going through that revolution, going through that transformation which happens in you is what I call tapas. Rarely the bird which was stuck like this in the trap, but had courage and let go of the stick, it comes back and tells the other bird which is hanging to let go, relax. Understand, if the bird relaxes it will be enjoying its freedom. Same way if you let go you will become paramahamsa. Let me tell you I was hanging, now just because I have seen this in my experience, with that courage, with that authenticity, with that satya (truth)…. Please understand, when it comes from the experienced inner space even if your logic is fighting don’t bother you will have that experience. When it comes from the truth, it will reach your true self and being, all you need to do is just let go, you will become paramahamsa. Let you live enlightenment.

Life lived in an unclutched way is what I call Living Enlightenment.

Initiation


No Comments

Truth when it comes of out an enlightened inner space and “clicks” is Initiation. If you analyze and say “how could He convince me about such great thing and such a wonderful thing”. You yourself will feel ‘how could he convince’ but suddenly your heart will feel connected to the words which are being uttered, the truth which is being expressed. That connection, that “click” is what I call Initiation. 

Initiation doesn’t mean chanting some special mantra in your ears or doing something special. It straight away means making you experience a solid truth, giving you a clear inner space and confidence to live that truth. In Vedantic tradition we have 3 beautiful words – “Shravana, Manana, Nidhidhyasana”. Shravana means intense listening. Manana means internalizing, contemplating. Nidhidhyasana means living.  Initiation means the great truths, the words which lead you to the truth, the clear path which leads you to the truth, if the experience is transmitted, at least one glimpse. Then initiation has happened, you are initiated. 

There are many doubts, “I have already been initiated by some guru, can I have initiation ?”. “If I get initiated, can I go to some other guru and learn something ?”. Everything is perfectly alright, nothing wrong. I always tell people, go to all gardens and pluck flowers and make a beautiful garden for you. Our ego is such if it is  beaten by 10,12 gurus only then it will die. It won’t die just by something which you learned from one person. Learn all best things from all sources and enrich your life. It has no way connected to any of the old understanding you have about initiation.

Initiation is just transmitting the authentic experiential clarity which happened into inner space. 

That click, which word is responsible, which moment the click happened you will not know. But suddenly when the expression of truth is over, you will feel, yes it is true. I am seeing it. So, just prepared for initiation – entering into the truth.

Any idea you strongly remember and move your body, that idea will get engraved into your bio-memory. If you think by bending up and down, up and down 10 times, your stomach will become healthy. Just that idea I will become healthy and you moving up and down, up and down, you will become healthy. You don’t have to learn any formal yoga, exercise or anything. This is the whole science. There are so many exercises, everything is helping, how can it be. If you go to one system they say for stomach problems bend this way, if you go to other system for stomach problems you should never bend this way but instead but bend the other way, if you go to another system, they say for stomach problems you should neither bend nor stand, just lie down. But the big problem is all these systems work. How can it be ?

So, with any strong idea inside, anyway you move the body that idea becomes part of your bio-memory and brings result.

Responsibility


No Comments

Responsibility in simple terms, is the ability to respond to life spontaneously. We don’t respond to life spontaneously. We always need a cushion, buffer spring between us and life. As a child you need fairy tales, as a young adult you need fantasies, as a grown up man you need desires. These are acting as buffer springs, shock springs, shock absorbers between you and reality – Life. Meeting, responding, connecting with the life without this shock absorbers is Responsibility.  

There are two ways in which you can respond to life – one is responding to life in a deep, welcoming and accepting way, the other is responding to life with resistance, reservations, judgement and attachment. You can hit the reality either in a beautiful smooth way or in a strong way.

Paramhamsa Nithyananda during an IA session

Of course strong landing sometimes takes away your very life. If you look deeply you will realize that most often 99% of the time, you respond to life with resistance/judgement/attachment. This happens because almost all that time, you consider the source of whatever that is happening in your life as something external or outside of you. Whether it is a challenging or conflicting or unpleasant situation, you always consider that the source of the situation lies outside of you. This is why you feel powerless or helpless in most situations of your life. And almost always you blame the others for the situation you are in. Whenever you are making the other responsible for your life, what you are actually doing is giving the control of your life to the other. You are making the other powerful, by making him or her responsible for the whole situation and the irony is that you keep wondering why you are powerless and helpless.

We often relate to responsibility as a burden – something which makes us do more work, puts us under undue pressure or stress. But please understand, that responsibility is actually a great power. Putting the blame on others and responsibility on others creates violence , resistance. Putting the blame on you and responsibility on you creates guilt. Taking the responsibility but not putting the blame on anybody is power. This is what i call – Freedom. It liberates you from the clutches of your own helplessness and from another’s power on you. It leaves you with the power to respond to the life with creativity, intelligence and spontaneity.  (more…)

Thousands of things are getting outdated and replaced, but the necessity of a living Master can never be outdated or replaced by anything. Because when He is radiating through His flesh and bones only,  the experience can be transmitted to the person who is in flesh and bones.  Swami says “‘Reading thousands of books, listening to thousand satsangs even that cannot be equated to sitting with Me deeply, passively when I am doing My daily routine activities. Suddenly you will see you are catching IT. You will start looking at the whole picture”.

Enlightened being or an Avatara purusha is the better bigger ultimate species than a human being. So, naturally when you see Him, when you are around Him, that memory gets recorded in your system. By living around the Master, your muscle memory catches Him. Even after you leave His presence, your intellect may forget Him, but your muscles will not forget Him. During the death when the muscles get heated up because of the pain, the moment muscles get boiled, the first thing which will open up is Master ie. the memory about Me in you. That is the reason Vedic tradition insists about living around the Master. (more…)

Darshan of Krishna

When I was 19 or 20, that was the time. When I was wandering, walking length and breadth of India. This incident happened just before enlightenment. I was staying in a old lady’s house. Very old lady, she was living alone, may be 80 or something. She was having one cow and a small house. From the cow she will get milk and make buttermilk out of it. She will go to the whole village. She will go around few streets and sell that curd and buttermilk. Come back in the night with sweets and fruits. She had a small statue of krishna. She will put all those things in front of krishna’s murthy and speak to him. And then later on she will eat and sleep. First few days I thought because of her devotion she is talking, Ok. I thought she was a Good devotee as she gives food for me. Why to interfere in her everyday lifestyle.  After 10 days, I said “alright, I am going for my pilgrimage”. I was going to Somnath temple. She started crying and said ‘No no baba don’t go. Don’t think I will ask you to work. I will give you food everyday. I don’t want you to go. I feel so happy that Krishna Himself has come in your form to my house” (more…)
