Fear is a powerful energy which gives a deep relaxation, a deep centeredness when you don’t fight with it!


1 Comment

You cannot conquer fear. Fearlessness means intelligence to live the intense fear without directing it towards any object. When there is no object to be afraid of, the intense fear will give such an intense relaxation and peace.

Fear is a powerful energy which gives a deep relaxation, a deep centeredness. The fear center is the rejuvenation center.

Fearlessness is not suppressing fear.

For example, when you are afraid to cross a dark area in the night, you start thinking of and repeating god’s name. Because of fear, god’s name will be topmost in your mind! You feel that you don’t have fear because your inner chatter is engaged in something else! When you engage your inner chatter in something else, you feel that you are out of fear. But you have only diverted your attention, you haven’t solved the problem completely.

There is a saying, ‘When a cat drinks milk, it will close its eyes tight and think that the whole world has become dark, and therefore, nobody can see it!’ Understand, you also do the same thing when you don’t pay attention to the fear, and then believe that the fear has disappeared.

Fearlessness does not mean non-existence of fear. It means the fear is there, but you have tremendous energy or courage to live with it and face it. Fearlessness means having the energy or the courage to live even with the maximum fear. It is going beyond that fear and being neither attached to nor detached from the fear.

One more important thing you should know is fear is part of the nature of life.

Spirituality, Upanishads

Upanishads are not do’s and don’ts but the thought currents you need to cherish, enjoy, entertain for higher intelligence to happen in you!

Introducing Kenopanishad. Somebody asked me, “Human beings are just developed monkeys, but how we are able to perceive so much about the Universe, Planets, Space? How we are able to understand so much about all this? Why other animals, even the closest version of us, chimpanzees, are not able to catch, understand things about Universe. Why human beings are able to understand perceive, even manipulate, as we want? Already we have space stations, some of the big rocks coming towards the Planet Earth we can blast it or redirect it from there itself. Already we are able to manipulate movements in the space. How?

Please understand, because only human beings started asking the question – keneśitaṁ – by whom? This Upanishad is responsible for keeping one of the most important, powerful thought current responsible for human intelligence. Please understand, few of the thought currents responsible for why human beings are the way they are. Listen, few of the thought currents—why the human beings are the way they are.

The first thought current—“Who am I?”

Second – “What happens after death?”

Third, most subtle, most precious, most important thought current—“What is the source of all this?” What happens after death? — that thought current was kept alive in the humanity.

Please understand, no Upanishad is a conclusion.

I wanted you to understand this Truth. Neither Isha nor Kena, or Katha, or Mundaka, or Mandukya. No Upanishad is conclusion. That’s the beauty. Seeking thought currents consolidated for further research is Upanishads. Understand, it is not answer. The whole Isavasya Upanishad you won’t get a single answer. These are some of the thesis proposed, some of the thought currents needed to be cherished, pondered upon, thought about, those thought currents will give you 1000 question 2000 answers. But those thought currents need to be kept alive; for your next generation they may give 10,000 questions and 20,000 answers. (more…)

Remembrance of Oneness only is required during death, because all obstacles have already become useless to you

Let me enter into today’s Upanishad verse. 17th verse. Please chant along with me.

vāyur-anilam amṛtam athedaṁ  bhasmāntagṁ śarīram |

auṁ krato smara kṛtaguṁ smara  krato smara kṛtaguṁ smara || 17 ||

Please repeat.

au krato smara ktagu smara  krato smara ktagu smara |

 vāyur-anilam amṛtam athedaṁ  bhasmāntagṁ śarīram |

auṁ krato smara kṛtaguṁ smara  krato smara kṛtaguṁ smara || 17 ||

I can say this is the Hindu way of approaching the Death. Please understand, this verse gives so many unsaid, deeper level of understandings.

vāyur-anilam amṛtam athedaṁ  bhasmāntagṁ śarīram |

auṁ krato smara kṛtaguṁ smara  krato smara kṛtaguṁ smara || 17 ||

Let the vital life-energy ‘Wind’ present in the body, now merge into the all-pervading, eternal cosmic life-energy; and now let this gross body along with subtle body, disintegrate into its basic elements and be reduced to the sacred ashes.

Please understand each of these verse are very important. The way Sanatana Dharma approaches Death it’s very clear, the body has nothing useful. It has no use after death, that is why they say, let it disintegrate – bhasmāntagu śareeram. This verse declares about the need of cremation for Hindus. Why cremation in Hinduism? It is this verse shows the way why cremation in Hindu tradition, because – vāyur-anilam amtam atheda. Let the ‘prana’ merge with the Cosmic Prana. bhasmāntagu śareeram – let the body go back to its basic elements, no use! After you leave the body, it has no use; you don’t need this after that. If you want, you will have one more body. You will take a new body, but this itself is not required. (more…)

Let my breathing pattern become Cosmic breathing pattern and continue to be my breathing pattern


No Comments

This verse, which says, vāyur-anilam amtam atheda means let my breathing pattern dissolve into the Cosmic breathing pattern.

Actually I wanted you to practice I wanted all of you to practice this, especially when you fall asleep—decide anyhow now I am going to fall asleep. I can’t keep my inner image, my outer image, other’s image, life image, all up, alive. Actually all you guys are holding on to your outer-image like flex board only, it is so heavy, and you go ahhh, ahhh, AHHHHH! The other’s expectations are like a wind blowing on it…. [Swamiji makes pounding sound].. this flex board is dancing, and you say, “no, I am holding.” When you fall asleep you know you can’t hold on to it anymore. So, decide, now nothing can be done, “I am going to fall asleep.” Instead of holding on or planning, “ how I will hold on the outer image face all the expectations of other’s image, the wind, snow fall, cyclone, what you call, tornado”; actually, expectation from your girlfriend is wind, once she becomes your wife, expectation from her is tornado, once you have a kid, expectation from her is wind, tornado, forest fire, snow fall, all put together and something more, you imagine. It is not only about between husband and wife even in the office.. whole day you go on planning to hold on to that flex board, anyhow night you can’t hold on. You are going to fall asleep.

Decide, understand, every night if you make a decision, consciously, within 21 days it can become your bio-memory your cognition. Just 21 days decide, I don’t want anything else — let my breathing pattern become Cosmic pattern. Morning when you wake up decide, let the Cosmic breathing pattern continue to be my breathing pattern, that’s all. Decide consciously. (more…)

Nachiketa, what a character!


No Comments

 

Today I will try to introduce Naciketa, the hero of Kathopanishad.  It is so strange, king, educated, knows everything, has people, wealth everything under his control ends up being stupid. And a kid, his own kid, not even finishing his schooling, less than 7 years old kid, supposed to be nobody, neither having money nor having people, nothing under his control, ends up being a hero. Strange are the drama of the Cosmos. So the underlying truth, what our society or country respect may be totally different from what Cosmos expects or what Cosmos respect.

Please listen, Nachiketa, kid, kid means real kid, not portrayed as kid real kid, he became the source of enlightenment for billions to come in the future. Please understand, Kathopanishad is the Hindu Book of Dead and death.

If you have read Tibetan Book of Dead, you will understand, every idea represented in that book is from this book. This is the Source book, anywhere, any research, any understanding, any intuition, any sacred secret, any revelation about death, it is from this source, and many conclusion, humanity is yet to arrive is already revealed in this book. It is THE book. (more…)

I will expand on Kathopanishad, the introduction story. Please understand, it’s a very beautiful story, the introduction story.

There was a time aliens were not aliens to us. Please understand. When your mind divides, divides, divides, even the other country people are called aliens. No, this is the extreme stupidity some of the so called developed countries call the other country citizens as aliens. The abusive nature and arrogant nature. See, I am not saying that what India is suffering by the Bangladeshi invaders, that should be allowed. No, I am not supporting that. See, if someone wants to come from Bangladesh and live here, be part of our society, I don’t think I have any right to oppose. But when they come here, try to harm our villages, run a riot, do criminal acts, then we have all the right to protect ourself. But no way we have a right to give them the title ‘aliens’. We have no right to give the title ‘aliens’.

There was a time when we were so vast in our heart. The Satya Yuga, even aliens were not aliens, they were able to smoothly, easily come and go. We were able to go to their space and come. That was the time this story happened, where a seven year old kid can straight walk up to Yama’s abode …Yama comes, showing his form clearly. Aliens were not aliens in those days. I hope again, the same space will come back. (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…)

This great Upanishad, Kathopanishad, Upanishads are the essence of Vedas.  Among the Upanishads, Kathopanishad is Upanishad shiromani, Upanishadasikamani means it’s one of the best Upanishads because the subject it deals is Death.

Please understand, with right understanding Death can become rejuvenation energy, energy which will rejuvenate you.  Don’t think death is always a curse, when you don’t understand, it’s a curse. Actually when you don’t understand even Chiranjeevatva, eternal life is a curse, do you know the Chiranjeevis of the world Prahalad, Markandeya, Hanuman, Ashwathama, in all these Chiranjeevis, Ashvathama was cursed to be Chiranjeevi. Please understand, Ashwathama Chiranjeevatva is not a boon for him, that he will never die is not a boon given to Ashvathama, it was a curse given to him.  Just imagine you are never going to die, you will literally be swallowing tons and tons of depression pills and boredom pills, if you don’t understand life, the life is not understood, life is a curse.  If death is not understood, death is a curse.  If you understand both, I tell you, every time death happens it is a possibility for you to rejuvenate and take a new body. Kathopanishad talks about death, so many secrets about death and how you need to live your life to understand death, have liberation when natural death happens to you. (more…)

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

Essence. The sacred secret, the key truth from this verse—the context you set for you, please understand, the context you set for you before entering into action or life is more important than your decision of entering or not entering into life or what you do or don’t do in life.

Listen once more.

The context you set before entering into life is more important than what you do or don’t do in your life. Context, if you set the context of Bhakti, your travel becomes pilgrimage, food becomes prasada, water becomes tīrtha, ash becomes bhasma, music becomes kirtan. Man becomes human. Understand, setting the context is much more important than the action, commission, or omission of acts, doing something or not doing something. Doing something or not doing something is not that important than the context. (more…)

Wow, how can I describe Varanasi!

Varanasi, Anandavana, the place of Annapurni. Only yesterday I realised the power of Annapurni’s energy field. Please understand, it is not only that she gives food, the moment you enter this space your metabolism just goes up. That is the power of the Annapurna’s energy field. Just yesterday night, I discovered it, why I feel so blissful. See, the bliss of enlightenment is always there, why I feel so blissful when I enter Varanasi? I was just looking why I feel so healthy the moment I enter the energy field of Varanasi. Because, the metabolism goes so high, literally the body is digesting the air itself. The very air is digested by the body. Body is enjoying the very breath or the energy field of this Anandavana, Varanasi.

This place is ecstasy for people who seek the higher purpose of life. See, the highest purpose is enlightenment, no doubt, but even if somebody is seeking little higher than what they are seeking. Even if they are seeking for health, they want complete health, then little higher than what they are seeking. They were looking for wealth, now they are looking for more wealth. That is little higher than what they are seeking. (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…)

au saha nāvavatu | saha nau bhunaktu | saha vīryam karvāvahai |

auśāntiśāntiśānti ||

Listen! The whole concept of Indian education system, how it was, how it should be – in future – how it was and how it should be in future. Please understand, whenever I am glorifying the past, I am not indulging in it, I am visualising it for the future. Listen! If the past makes you more and more powerless, you are indulging in it. If it makes you to decide to build your future again and again, it is vision. It is vision.

Understand, all you need to do in your life, all you need to do to make what you want as reality. Looking at the right past, that gives you courage, hope, to relive it, to recreate it, the real future. Here the word ‘past’ I use should be understood not from the context of your past, but from the context of collective past. Understand, whenever I am describing about Vedic tradition, I am describing the glory of the collective past created by enlightened masters. I am not talking about your past. (more…)

The urge to Re-invent yourself should become urgent

Listen. Please listen with all your attention. The constant happening of life can be perceived as constant rebirth or a constant death. If you perceive as a constant rebirth, or a constant death, if you perceive it as a constant rebirth, you will experience the beauty of life. If you perceive, listen, if you perceive life as a constant rebirth or constant death, both the ways, whatever way you may be perceiving, life is not going to change. Please understand, reality does not wait for your acceptance.

I think I need to give more examples, then you can grasp, you catch what I am saying.

Whatever need to be taken away from you, when that is taken away, your hue and cry, non-acceptance, screaming, shouting, cursing, all that will neither stop nor reduce the speed of those things being taken away from you. Same way, whatever needs to be showered on you, your blessing, your praising, all those things will not multiply the things which is going to be showered on you. Please listen, praising God, or Life or Guru, is not to please them, but to keep you in a pleasant space. Understand, be very clear, praising God or Guru or life, is not to please them, but for you to be pleasant. Never ever think you can bribe Mahadeva. No! If you are in the mood of praising them, you will be in the pleasant space. That is the result, that is the fruit of praising Gods, Goddess, doing Sahasranāma (chanting 1000 names of Gods), doing archana, vandana, bhajana, pujana, seva—worshipping, chanting, serving, praising—all that is for you to be kept in the space of pleasantness. Bribing Mahadeva is not possible. Listen, no bribing is going to work. You can’t bribe Him. You can’t bribe Him. (more…)

How constant dying, which is happening in all of us – if it is approached violently, arrogantly, negatively – turns into pain and suffering. If is it approached with the mood of listening passively how it leads to transformation.

Listen. By your very nature, you are Living Consciousness, how much ever you try to frame you into certain ideas and ideologies, for the sake of convenience of your everyday life. Please understand, if there is fire in this hall, you have to run out. This frame is perfect to have. If there is an earthquake, you need to leave the hall, go to open space. This framework is perfect to have. Nothing wrong in it. These frameworks, rules, understandings, regulations are good to have in the outer world. Like, you will sleep only in your house. These are all good to have, but it is so unfortunate, you start putting framework for you inside. Like first time when I feel powerless at the age of 7, how I responded, I will respond the same way till the age of 79, whenever I feel powerless – is a bad framework.

Listen, understand the difference. If there is a fire, you need to run out of this hall, is a good framework to have; nothing wrong with it. If there is earthquake, you need to leave this hall, it’s a good framework as far as the outer world is concerned, the frameworks are okay because matter functions based on death, decision and frameworks.

Listen, matter, the external matter, because it is already dead, it functions only based on certain law of life. It does not have flow of life. Listen, it has a Dharma, it does not have Yama. (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…)

Let’s enter into Kathopanishad. I have to introduce the subject of Kathopanishad, then the author, then the listener, and the whole thing, but ultimately I have to say the book is authorless. Even Yama reads the Akashic Records about death. So it is not his own words, he only reads the Akashic Records that is why it is authorless.

Death, the subject of Kathopanishad. Understand, death as the end of the known frightens you, whatever you know, the known people, known wealth, known good, known bad, whatever is known is coming to an end, stand still, that is why it frightens you. Listen, listen with awareness, whatever is known, is coming to a standstill, because whatever is known is coming to a standstill, you are afraid of death. Then are you happy with whatever is known and to live with it? Where is the gap? Neither you are happy with whatever is known, ready to live with it, nor you are ready to give up. Whatever is know and ready to go beyond and rejuvenate yourself. See how we are stuck? Understanding about death will liberate you from this, where you are caught, being caught cannot be considered as living. So understand, all of us know only two states in our life; death and dying. Death and dying, where your perception of the known ends, it is called death, where your perception continues to torture you, continues to torture you, it is called dying. Listen, I am introducing one of the important sacred secrets about death to you, when death is staring at somebody, decide to stare at him. (more…)

First and foremost commandment for Hindus—thou shall not die. Understand. Death beyond the frustrated poets’ descriptions, constipated philosophers, discrepancies, brain dead intellectuals ‘blah blahs’, beyond all this…the Lord of Death is directly taking the questions about Death from a small kid.

The story has lot of significance. He is able to explain it even for a small kids means, there is no propositions and suppositions. Understand, anything, which has become realization without prepositions and suppositions, that is the only Universal truth.

This modern day western mathematicians and stupid scientists, they develop so many stupid theories and formulas – constant, infinity, which has no value. Then what do you mean by this formula? Your theory, your formula has no value, because you insert somewhere one constant or infinity, which can’t be described. So these are all the so-called – appears like a truth with many prepositions and suppositions. But anything, which is Truth without prepositions and suppositions, are only Reality. Please understand, Katha Upanishad is Reality.  (more…)

Understand, who is continuously perceived will never be a mystery, can never be a mystery, who is a great mystery can never be continuously perceived. Here is a greatest paradox–constantly available, perceived. Any moment, anywhere, anybody can perceive Death. Anybody who perceives becomes ‘body’.

Constantly experienced, perceived, especially in this great land. Largest cremation ground in the world is Manikarnika Ghat. Please understand, largest in the world, not in India, in the world.  Anything related to human numbers, if you are successful in India, it is the largest, because it is the largest population. That is why any movie star, any celebrity, any guru, who has a large following in India can straight away use the word largest in the world. This land largest cremation ground, average 350 bodies are burnt everyday. On special days! I don’t know how they call ‘special days.’ Its goes even up to 500, who knows when that special day!

Largest cremation ground! Here very casually while you are walking on the road, you can see 4 people carrying, if you see anything bigger than suitcase it is dead body. In Varanasi anything you see 4 people carrying or 2 people carrying a little bigger than suitcase, covered completely with a cloth, be very clear, it is a dead body. The other day I saw, they nicely unloaded near a tea shop, chai shop, and all of them, both of them are sipping a chai and that fellow is lying there, very comfortably both of them are sipping their chai, after the chai they religiously lift the body again, start walking.

Kathopanishad – direct word from the Lord of Death

Kathopanishad is the last 8 sections of Taittiriya Samhita, Krishna Yajur Veda. It is 119 verses. When Sri Rama Chandra lists all the 108 Upanishads in Muktikopanishad to Hanuman, Rama lists this Upanishad as the third Upanishad.

The main subject of the Upanishad is DEATH. Even though I have spoken many times bits and pieces of this Upanishad, here and there I have quoted this Upanishad, I used this Upanishad to explain the truths, sacred secrets behind Death. In many of our programs, satsangs, but now formally, systematically I have to introduce this Upanishad. It looks tooo big. I am just wondering…It is like I have to chisel the whole mountain using a small chisel and hammer. Where will I start, how will I continue? It is just using my small words, now I will have to describe and introduce this whole Upanishad.

This Upanishad is not commandment of somebody who realized God, no! Even if you realized God, a little bit will be your Enlightenment experience, a little will be your brain masala. There is a possibility for corruption, misrepresentation, manipulation or missing it. (more…)

Definition of Consciousness by Upanishads

I will enter into the 8th verse of the Īśāvāsya Upaniṣad. 

sa paryagāc-chukram akāyam avraṇam asnāviram śuddham apāpa-viddham |

kavir manīṣī paribhūḥ svayambhūr yathātathyato-arthān vyadadhāc-chāśvatībhyaḥ samābhyaḥ || 8 ||

I will read out the translation:

Pure Consciousness is all-pervasive (like space) beyond the coming and going, absolute radiant and self-effulgent, un-embodied boundary-less whole (beyond subtle body), woundless, muscleless having no incompletion with the body (beyond gross body); Consciousness is the ever pure space devoid of the dirt of ignorance (beyond causal body), and is untouched by the delusion of incompletion; Consciousness is the all-knowing seer of all (past, present, future), the lord of all minds, Consciousness transcends all beings, Consciousness is self-existent by Itself with Its independent will and intelligence, having no cause for Its happening; it is Pure Consciousness, that from time eternal, has enriched the ages and each being, by ordaining desirable responsibilities onto them, as per their nature and space, and their actions and results thereof.

You need to read this translation again and again at least 10 times. You have to read this at least 10 times.

In this verse, Upanishads are declaring the quality of the Consciousness.

Please understand, you are given a direction, you are given right direction, that’s the right word I will use, or your manana, contemplation, for your internalizing. You are given a conscious direction. What you are supposed to do to experience the Ultimate Consciousness is described in this verse. (more…)

Fear of public speaking is nothing but fear of talking to yourself


No Comments

Questionnaire: ‘Dear Swamiji, as you say, facing fear is the only way to go beyond any fear. Kindly correlate practicing the four tatvas and living without fear of any sort from now on; for example, fear of public speaking, going up to the fear of death.’

Swamiji: You think public speaking is such a small fear? You are wrong! Fear of public speaking is nothing but fear of losing your image, which is much worse than fear death. At least, after death you know, I don’t need to face this fellow. Nobody is going to back come and ask you, ‘Why did you die in such a bad way? You could have died a little more gracefully!’ No, nobody is going to ask you. But everybody is going to ask you, ‘Why did you blabber your mouth so much? Why did you open your mouth and lose the little respect you had?’ Everybody is going to ask you! So Fear of public speaking is much more than fear of death. Getting it? Statistics are right when they say fear of public speaking is the largest fear than fear of death! Fear of death comes only as second in the survey reports.

Understand, listen, listen, when you face certain fear….. I’ll give you one example.

For example fear of losing all your wealth.

When you face that fear you don’t need to start believing you will lose one day, but you will face it. Listen. Usually what you do know in the name of facing the fear?

‘Alright, now I lost it! What can be done? Let me face.’ Then what happens? O

ne part of you confirms you are going to lose the all the wealth and then it will say, ‘No, no! How can you live? How can you live? What is this? Why are you thinking all this?’

Listen, how many of you understand what I am saying?

So now you are caught between whether you are going to accept you are going to lose the wealth one day, or just to hide, hide, hide and suppress,

‘No, I am not going to lose! I am not going to lose! I am not going to lose!’ If you say you are not going to lose, your heart is not going to believe.

If you say, ‘Yes I am going to lose now what to do?’ Again, ‘See, you are powerless now what to do? What is the way to save yourself?’ Your mind somehow keeps seeing the rut.

Listen you don’t need to believe you are going to lose the wealth, and you don’t need to have the fear what will you do if you lose the wealth? Understand? (more…)

IA Participant:  So, if you have, like somebody has a lot of incompletions, they don’t finish with the person, and you were saying you have a choice about which body you want to go to, we hear about people who have incompletions again being born together or nearby, so…. 

Swamiji: Usually, when you have incompletions, you will never be born together or nearby.  I have always seen this husband and wife taking birth in opposite continents!  They don’t even want to meet with each other by mistake!  So, by incompletion you will never be born together or nearby.  Only if you are completely Complete, and deep friendliness you carry, you are born together.  If you listen, in Indian villages you will get some stories – husband died, and within one hour wife also left the body.  Not committed suicide; just fell and died.  Those kind of couples take birth together. 

Participant: And, are those kind of couples, they call like “soul mates”?

Swamiji: Yes, yes, yes.

Participant: The other one I had is, if you are a liberated soul, and you are getting liberation while you are living, I have always heard that seven janmas before you in your family also get liberated…

Swamiji: No, not liberation.  The possibility for liberation is given.  When the seven janmas – left, right, up, down….  Understand, understand this meaning: “Up” means, father, forefather.  “Down” means, brother’s kids.  They themselves may not have kids.  If they have kids, that generation, or the own brother, or own sister, their kids.  That is “Down”.  “Right: means, brothers and their relatives.  “Left: means, sisters and their relatives. 

Participant: So, everybody when they come to… 

Swamiji: when they leave the body they are given the option, possibility.  You are connected to this energy.  See, what I am saying, for example, I will give you my own example.  All my up, down, right, left, they remember me whether they accept me as an incarnation or not, but for all of them I am one of the important components in their life, in their memory, and, when they leave the body, naturally my memory will be awakened.  At that time, it will be told to them, ‘You are associated with this being.  Do you want to just merge with this being, or do you want to take one more body?’  If they accept means, they merge.  If they do not accept, throughout their life they lived against me, then they take one more body. 

Participant: And, then, I have also heard that there are seven lokas….you have Yakshas and all that…. 

Swamiji: No, no, no, not seven lokas; seven space, seven space where your patterns are stored.  Based on the pattern you have, you will go and enjoy there.  If you are a cricket player, you will get locked in a cricket stadium.  If you are very happy with the snakes and scorpions, you are put there;  that is all.     

Participant: Now, in the transition zone, you were mentioning, like thirteen days, and then your baggage goes over.  There was some movie that we saw which was recorded by somebody’s experiences where they were, you know, telling the past; souls who departed were giving the experiences, and they were talking about the transition zone.  But, how you can actually have a choice when you stay there, and you can work out your Karmas or work out more on your Completions, and then you still have a choice if you want to go back or go forward.

Swamiji: That is not true.  That choice is given only if you lived a very beautiful Completion while you are in the body, initiated by an enlightened being, not otherwise.

Participant: Thank you, Swamiji.

Death, Inner Awakening, Q&A

Are ghosts real ?


No Comments

IA Participant: Swamiji, I had some question, but that has been answered.  I am very curious about the time duration.  You answered, ‘One-and-a-half hours medically’, you answered, ‘Thirteen days’.  Between the various analogies you have given about fractured mirror and the other mirror, I am very curious as to, when they say “spirits”, “troubled souls”…….

Swamiji: They are the committed, people who committed suicide.  Those terrorized souls….  See, you can’t even call them “souls”; it is like a broken, chaotic mirror on which the slight reflection also falls, because the reflection is universal.  So, what happens to that broken pieces of mirror is, it is so restless, it tries to jump here and there, but it is not powerful enough to enter into our body and harm us, because we already have a soul.  One body cannot have two souls.  So, it cannot harm you.  They can only be seen by you.  You get frightened and be harmed, you harm yourself.  They themselves have no power to harm you, because, ghosts have no power to harm you.  That is what I am talking now.  Because you have seven layers of you.  Let me describe the layers:

  • The body made out of bone, flesh, is the first layer.  
  • Second layer is your breathing structure, your breathing structure which has five actions – inhaling, holding, spreading, exhaling, cleaning – five actions.  This breathing infrastructure is called second layer. 
  • Your thinking infrastructure, that is third layer. 
  • Your feeling infrastructure, emotions, that is fourth layer.  
  • The deep sleep time what you experience, the rejuvenation infrastructure, like a refuel station, the fuelling station, that is the fifth layer.   
  • And, the bliss, joy, you experience once in a while in your life, the Completion, that is the sixth layer.   
  • And the soul reflection is the seventh layer. 

You have seven layers now.  But, that terrorized soul will have only three layers: the soul reflection, Completion layer, and the rejuvenation layer.  It will not have the emotion infrastructure, the thinking infrastructure, breathing infrastructure, and five senses body infrastructure.  When it has four layers less, it is less powerful than you.  It cannot harm you.  It can be seen by you, perceived by you, it can be your servant; but it cannot harm you. 

For example, if I tell a ghost, ‘Take this water bottle and keep it there.’, he can do it, but he cannot harm you.  For any human-being, he cannot harm.  Even if I tell, ‘Go and harm and that person!’, he cannot harm you.  He can appear in front of you; seeing that you can get frightened.  But he himself cannot torture you and give you suffering, because, he is a less powerful species, he is not a more powerful species than you.  That is why, all the black magic, sending the ghosts, all these negative energy things, they can only appear in front of you in the terrorizing form.  If you just laugh at them they can’t do anything.  They cannot touch you.  They cannot disturb you.  But seeing the form, you get shakened, frightened, have heart attack; it is all your stupidity.  By law they cannot touch you.  And by the natural flow of life, they will not be able to harm you.  They cannot enter your body like how the movies are showing.  They cannot snatch away something from you, or they can’t even touch you, because, you are a higher species than them.  It is like a tree; tree cannot come and beat you, understand.  Because, he does not have many powers you have.  You also breathe, he also breathes.  But if you run away, he cannot chase you.  Many powers which you have, he doesn’t have.  Same way, he cannot even fall on you and kill you.  Only if the wind comes, he can fall.  That is not out of his will; beyond his will only he falls.  Same way, a ghost is a lower level species.  He cannot harm you.  He cannot do anything to you.  He can only be seen by you.  He can only maximum request you for help. 

The ghost, maximum help you can do to them is, giving them the shraaddha in some energy centres like Badri, Bodh Gaya, or a Master’s stomach.  The food you offer to him, offer to Master, directly goes as shraaddha, pinda tharpana, to the ghosts, and they feel they are liberated.  They are given the smooth waiting lounge, or the smooth passover to the next body.  If your family ghost comes, the only help they can ask you is, they can ask you to give pinda tharpana.  If you give food to an enlightened master, or food, the shraaddha in brahma kapala, so those few kind of help you can do to them; other than that you also can’t help them in any way, they also can’t harm you in any way.  That much only is the maximum help they can ask you.  If you feel your parents or relatives, your family members’ ghost is present in your house, you are seeing them once in a while, or somebody is seeing them, you don’t need to be afraid; they may be just begging you for help to liberate them, to give shraaddha for them, to give pinda tharpana for them; that’s all, nothing else.  

And please understand, just let me repeat this.  A lawyer has to give the right legal opinion.  So, now, whatever word I am uttering, I am responsible for it.  I tell you, for all these words, I am responsible.  With that responsibility I am saying, everything I am uttering is the truth, because I know many of you will plan about your life, your death, your future based on my inputs now.  So I am responsible for the words I am uttering.   

Death, Inner Awakening, Q&A

What happens when you suicide ?


No Comments

IA Participant: It’s about the, if it’s a natural deaths or it’s a accidental deaths, and for devotee or for just a normal person. I heard like for some tradition like 49 days kind of preparation. But you just mentioned it only takes a few hours ?

Swamiji: So, listen. Let me be very clear. When a person dies, natural death, he will assume the body in 3 sec. 3 kshana. Kshana means gap between 1 thought and the other thought. If you lived a complete life, for you the gap between one thought and another thought can be even 2 hrs. For a agitated person, the gap may be microsecond. So based on the individual mind within 3 thought, the third thought he has to have another one body. But the luggage transfer, all the incompletions and baggage and karma, knowledge, the art they know, the skills they know, the language they know, the efficiency they have all that to get transferred it takes 13 days. U-Haul service takes 13 days. You are shifting from Seattle to St. Louis. You go in flight and land in St. Louis, but all your luggage from Seattle to St. Louis takes 13 days. U-Haul service takes 13 days. Understand?

So, for a normal person, natural death, this is the way he dies and in 13 days the luggage is shifted. For a normal person, accident; because it is an accident, he has not committed suicide; he will be given a peaceful lounge till his natural death period comes. If he is supposed to die at 90 by exhausting all karmas, he dies at 50, forty years he will have a peaceful lounge in the transition zone. So, he will not be painful or hurting or suffering. He will have a peaceful lounge, like a resting and then in his natural death period he will take the body and the luggage will go with him. But if somebody commit suicide, he will have a terrorized lounge where he has to wait the natural period, till natural death period of death but it will be heavy suffering, worst suffering. That’s all is the difference. And if a devotee, especially initiated disciple, if he has a natural death, the moment his soul leaves the body I give him the option, the moment he goes through the NSP process, especially this death process.

Please listen; with all my integrity I am speaking this. Wherever you leave the body I will be there, the moment the death heat starts in your body I will be there. First thing I will be appearing and I will give you the option, if you want one more body you will have the conscious birth, you will carry only the completion pattern, all the other I disconnect it here itself.

The few loads of U-Haul vehicle will get into accident; it will never be transported to you. Only the completion part will come to you, other things will be burnt here. If you don’t want one more body you just disappear into MY form, into the restful awareness, in which I am happening. Understand, same way you are a devotee, if you face an accident, you will not be made to wait. The moment you are about to leave the body again you see me and I give you the option. You want to have one more body immediately you will have a conscious birth and only the completion patterns. You may be born in a gurukul or parents who will bring you to gurukul, who will bring you immediately to have my darshan and immediately connected, live and celebrate and enjoy the whole thing. If you don’t want one more body you just relax and, be in the restful awareness of ME. Even if you are a devotee if you commit suicide I cannot help. You have to go through the terrorized lounge and sit there, be there you go through the normal persons path, no way of any support or any help is possible. Clear..?

IA Participant: Yes. And I heard you say I will be resting with you.

Swamiji: If you decide.

IA Participant: If I decide I will be resting with you. Whether I be still individual consciousness.

Swamiji: There may not be any individual consciousness. There is something called Divya Shareera; means the body without body. The body which is not separate identity and if I have to explain more precise, it’s like a, if you consider the cosmic soul as a huge ice cream, you are also a small toy made of ice-cream, same ice-cream. The karana, kaarya both will not be separate from the origin; means the reason and the cause and happening and the whole thing you will not have a separate identity. You will be just in the space of Complete Completion. Clear.

IA Participant: Yes

Swamiji: You see, now as long as you have some other goal other than enriching, other than being part of what I am, you have a individual identity. If you decide you don’t want any other goal, any other individual identity, you just want only what I am which is Integrity, Authenticity, Responsibility, Enriching then you start experiencing that space even now. Clear. That is what Bhagavad-Gita calls Akshardhaama; Imperishable space. Where you do not have a individual body, it is called Saropya Mukthi. Saroopya mukthi means like a Nandi, Devi, Ganesha. All of them has no Individual identity, they are just Shiva, the different parts of Shiva. That’s all. Sameepya mukthi it is called, being near, liberated.

IA Participant: And I think every day we will go through death or certain part will go through death so that applies as well.

Swamiji: Yes

IA Participant: And if we keep doing Completion process, that means only the complete part will go to the next and incompletion part will be thrown away

Swamiji: Yes, but be burnt away. See, during the death I will naturally ask you, what do you want? You want one more birth or complete liberation. If you choose completion liberation you will be there in the same space as I describe. If you don’t even want to have a form made out of same ice-cream, you can just become one with the main ice-cream. That’s all. It’s like a ice ball can anytime become one with the huge snow hill. If you want to take one more birth you will become a conscious birth. All your completions will come with you, incompletions will be burnt, that is what is the purpose of this death process.

IA Participant: If I choose to take another birth does that mean there is still some little incompletion?

Swamiji: No, nothing like that, when you leave the body, when I ask if you wanted to take one more birth that is not incompletion. You just want to play or enjoy. That is perfectly alright.

Death, Inner Awakening, Q&A

Can we do organ donation after death ?


1 Comment

Organ donations, no way affect your further journey, your process in the next birth or enlightenment, it no way affects. Only if you are an enlightened while living, your body need to be retained, maintained so that the energy it radiates so many thousands people use. If you are enlightened being while you are in the body, after you leave the body better to keep it as without touching, without damaging as much as possible. Keep it as it is and make a Samadhi.  It will radiate the energy for thousands of years to come and help. Other than enlightened beings body can be immediately given it away in any way you want.

See, when clinically they declare dead, you are dead. It takes one and half hours more for you to actually die. That one and half hours an enlightened being can pull them back. In that one and half-hour time, after clinically declared dead, one and half-hours’ time I can pull them back, if they also want to come back. If that person says he doesn’t want to then I cannot do anything. I can but usually we don’t. Anyhow, once somebody is declared dead at least one and half hours you should not disturb the body. Clinically declared dead, at least one and half hours, because there is always a possibility for that person itself can decide and come back. So, any organ removal after one and half hours only right as per the spiritual law. But as per the medical law I think they have to remove immediately and they are removing. I will support any organ removal and donation after one & half hours.
