Mom, tell me what is Advaitha Sathya?

It seems, yesterday, one of our gurukul kids asked his mother, ‘Mom, tell me what is Advaitha Sathya?’ I wanted to answer that kid. Listen! “UNDERSTANDING THAT WHAT YOU EXPERIENCE AS YOU IS THE SAME STUFF EXPERIENCED AS THEM BY EVERYTHING THAT EXISTS” is Advaitha Sathya. What you experience as you in the deepest corner of you when you are listening to you, not when you are talking to you, but when you are listening to you, what you feel as you. Remove the patterns, remove the thought patterns, remove the root patterns; all this is your aggression towards you.…

न जायते म्रियते वा कदाचित् ज्ञायं भूत्वा भविता वा न भूयः | अजो नित्यः शाश्वतोऽयं पुराणो न हन्यते हन्यमाने शरीरे || Na jaayathey mriyathey vaa kadhaachith Jnaayam bhoothvaa bhavithaa vaa na bhooyaha | Ajo nithyaha shaashvathoyam puraano Na hanyathey hanyamaaney shareerey || “It is not born, nor does it die; It is not that having been non-existent it comes into existence; It is unborn, eternal, ancient and ever-lasting; Though associated with the body, it does not get killed even when the body is killed.” – Second Chapter, twentieth verse of the Bhagavadgita. Please understand, I am quoting the Bhagavadgita not…

Completion with life is eternal love!

Experience of Completion is, it will give you the feeling it is enough for you to live your whole life. Completion has the capability of giving you the feeling it is enough for you to live your whole life. If you have really, really fallen in love in your young age – not after seventy – if you have really, really, really fallen in love at the right age in your life, you will have that feeling-this love is enough for you to live your whole life. You won’t even bother about your basic needs! That’s why, in all movies, they show this sentiment…

Real ownership is constant actions performed in perfection in continuum

Ownership is formed without any bone structure by continuous action! Your actions are like flowers. Ownership is like thread. If the ownership thread is used and actions are tied, it is ego, garland of ego. Never the real ownership happens in that way. Real ownership is flowers are arranged so thoroughly in such packed way, it looks like garland but without thread – that is ownership. There is no separate thread other than continuously actions being performed so meticulously, so continuously that it looks like a garland. But they don’t have a thread, ie. the ego. In a normal man,…

Don’t follow rules and tradition blindly !

In the Olden days, people in India did not stitch clothes after sunset. This is because all stitching was done by hand with a needle. In the dim candle or kerosene lamp light it w$as not possible to see properly and one could get hurt by poking the fingers with needle. Even now in India, some people will not stitch with a needle after sunset. Even seamstresses and tailors will not do it, though we now have electricity and lights. They may not even stitch using machines! When we don’t have the necessary understanding of a practice, it becomes a…

Conflict-free life

The outer world is nothing but a reflection of your inner state. We continuously experience some conflict or other every moment – in our relationships, in our goals, in our desires, in life-situations. We invariably attribute our conflict to someone or something in the outer world. We blame the outer world for our problems. People ask me, ‘How can I be conflict-free in a world that is filled with conflict? Only when the whole world is silent, happy and peaceful can I become conflict-free.’ Understand, that is never going to happen! There is no such thing as bringing peace into…

Swapoornatva Kriya Process

What do you think about yourself ?

Your body gets dismantled and assembled everyday. Your intestines replaces itself once in 3 months, your liver replaces itself once in 9 months, even your brain replaces itself once in a year. Practically once a year, your whole body replaces itself. This is the first truth. Second, the ideas you carry about you plays a major role in reconstruction of your body. Please understand, every idea you carry about you plays a major role in re-construction of your body. Every day if you feel you are a wrestler, you don’t need to do any work out. I challenge, within 3…

Healthy body

Your body is the vehicle for your dreams and your ornament. Your body is vehicle for your dreams, for all your dreams. The dream may be related to relationships or luxury or comforts, joys, experiences or enlightenment or whatever it may be. Your body is vehicle for all your dreams and it is an ornament. This is the definition of body. Health means the ability to fulfill all the dreams you are carrying in a very casual way without losing the quality of being an ornament. Your body should be able to fulfill all the dreams which you are loading…

What do I mean by living totally ?

Try to live with more clarity, that’s all. Make the other people see sense in whatever they try to impose upon you. With clarity, you will be able to identify what your own desires are, what others have imposed on you and what desires you have borrowed from others. The first set of desires alone need to be fulfilled without any harm to any person or property. The other two need to be dropped with the help of clarity. If you live this way, you will no more be fulfilling others’ desires and you will be no more living others’ lives.…

In search of Death

There was a famous king by the name of Uchaishravas. He was suddenly possessed by a desire to control the entire world and so he performed a Vaajapeya yaga – a fire offering that is done when one wants to rule the whole world. According to the rules of this offering, one has to give away as offering all valuable things that are of great attachment to them. Only then, one can get the position of the lord of the world. Kings are always good business men. They have to be otherwise they cannot be  kings and have control over…

How can we learn from past experience ?

Be very clear, you will never be able to learn from past experiences. Past experience can only make you do the same things again and again. Any memory about the past experience can only make you do the same thing in a larger or smaller way, but the quality will be the same.  Be very clear, you will never be able to achieve any significant transformation or change in your personality by remembering your past. A connected, clutched mind creates more and more miseries in our personal life, professional career and relationships. It tremendously affects our creativity and economic well-being.…

Intelligence

We have an automatic intelligence which can run our lives, which can take care of our day-to-day life. Not only can it run our lives, it can maintain, it can extend or expand our lives. Your constant psychological planning, psychological worrying, fears, greed, whatever you think of as ‘You’, is not needed to run your life. Your very automatic intelligence is more than enough. 

Everything happens by natural flow of prakriti. Pure Self in you is neither affected nor disturbed but resides in pure strength.

Be honest to your possibility. Live true to your capacity then none of your senses will be controlled or conditioned by patterns. Self-Realization happens when you are true to your core. Let us be independently dependent. My boundary, your boundary. Let us merge when needed. Purana is the history with philosophical foot notes.  

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

….. 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…

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. 

Changing the object is never a solution. Changing the attitude is the solution. When you understand this, the very object of your desire becomes for you a doorway to the Divine.

“Unclutching – De-program the inner self” (part 1)

Let me express a key word – Mahavakya, the word which you need to completely understand. May be modern day ‘Mahavakya’. The word is “Be Unclutched”. Now let us try to analyze and internalize this one truth, one mahavakya. We have beautiful different Mahavakyas in Vedic tradition – Aham Brahmasmi, Tatvamasi, Pragnam Brahmam, Sarva Kalvidam Brahmam. These are all different Mahavakyas. Be Unclutched – What do I mean by the word – being Unclutched. Let me try to explain it with a simple diagram, how, continuously our mind is working and how we are clutching, connecting and creating a life or suffering…

Am I with Right Guru or Wrong Guru ?

A right guru will go on pushing you to continuously move forward. He will never give you the feeling you are done. The real peace is the explosion of the mind which asks for peace into piece, piece. What you think as real peace is tamasic tiredness, chronic fatigue. That is why when life comes in front of you, you just jump into some cave as you wanted to have a cozy cave. Even if you catch a cave, you do not understand that I am the walls of the cave. A real Master will go on be pushing you.…

You are a liquid. In which vessel you are kept you take the shape of that vessel. That is why I insist to create positive atmosphere around you.
