Meditation and consciousness – antidotes for karma


No Comments

When you have had even one glimpse of pure consciousness, no karma can influence you. Your frequency becomes much more than the frequency of karma. Karma can work on you only as long as you have thoughts. In conscious awareness you go beyond thoughts. So, naturally you will start ruling over karma. Any meditation when done intensely can give you a glimpse of consciousness, the Truth.

That is why they say, meditation is like exposing your film directly to the sun. If the camera shutter opens for one second, whatever is in front of the camera will be recorded on the film. If the shutter is left completely open, what will happen? If the sun’s rays directly fall on the film, what will happen? Whatever is recorded will be erased.

When you took birth, for a moment the camera shutter opened and life entered your body. Whatever was there in the scene outside at that moment was recorded. By the word ‘scene’, I mean the planetary positions at that moment. That is why the time of birth is very important. Based on that, your consciousness functions. However, during meditation, I consciously keep the shutter open for quite some time! So naturally, whatever is recorded will be erased!

So the first time the shutter was opened was when you took birth. The second time the shutter is opened is when you are initiated. This time the shutter is kept completely and naturally open so that the sun’s rays enter and wipe out all your karma. That is why when you are initiated by a master, you are called dvija or twice born. The man who operates your camera, who holds the shutter open for that period of time, is called the guru. He is the master.

Reality as it is, is Sadāshiva because Kaarana and Kaarya can never be separated! You and your actions can never be separated but you and your reactions can never be together! Be liberal in your actions and conservative in your reactions!

Today, all I wanted to convey to all of you is, “celebrating Shaktinipada.” As I gave, this is the message for Sadashivaratri. This whole Sadashivaratri Ritu, till Guru Purnima, I’ll give you the Science of Shaktinipata. As I told you all last week, the neurology of reality and the only solution, to experience Sadāshivatva, in the neurology of the reality is the Shaktinipada. Listen. First I spoke about physiology of reality, then psychology of reality, now neurology of reality. Some of the essential things I wanted to convey about the neurology of the reality is – reality by its real state is Sadāshiva, by its perception state is Maya. The space, which literally makes the Maya shiver and breaks, takes you from the perceptional reality to the real reality. That space is called Gurutattva.

Listen. Listen intensely. Reality as it is, is Sadāshiva because Kaarana (cause) and Kaarya (action) can never be separated. Me and My actions can never be separated. You and your actions can never be separated but you and your reactions can never be together.

You and your actions can never be separated; you and your reactions can never be together. (more…)

In the dream state and waking state, you are too engrossed in the details and opinions, you never look at the Source

 Listen. Now I will try to compare with some of the ideas, they try to express in the Matrix. The various bio-memories you can open up, will open up various planes of existence for you. Various bio-memories you can open up, opens up various planes of your existence. When you open up the bio-memory of your dream, you open up the dream plane for your existence, perception, experience. When you open up the dream space, you experience dream as your reality. When you open the dream bio-memory, you experience dream as your reality. When you open waking state bio-memory, you experience waking state as your reality. Poor are those who experienced only lower bio-memory opening and lower levels of existence. In the dream state and waking state, you are too engrossed in the details and opinions, you never look at the Source. That is why it called lower planes, lower planes where details become too much. Details become suffering. I have seen people, who get shaken even for a small injection or even hot water. If it was little more hot and they touch unexpectedly, the way they jump and roll, make the drama and finally tumble the tub and pour the hot water all over, get burnt.

That is what you do. By mistake if you touch the hot water, the way you jump and roll, you tumble the whole bucket and pour it on you. I have seen people doing it. For the sake of small temporary mood swing, they create permanent damages into their system. Small temporary mood swing, permanent damage is done to their Being. (more…)

Understand, whatever exists is consciousness including what you don’t like in the life.

People say, “everything is okay”, but who invented this examination and office? When you are a child you think, “everything is okay.” When you think everything is okay, who invented this office; even the things you feel you don’t like, not part of you remember – sarvam brahmopanishadameverything is Consciousness – means you made everything in your life, you made everything in your life.

What is going on with Yoga?


No Comments

Swamiji opens up about Yoga and shares the things you have never been told about yoga.

Yoga did not originate from Patanjali, as many people think.

Patanjali is the organizer, not originator. With all my respect to Patanjali, at least 50.000 years before Patanjali, a being walked on the earth assuming the human form, just like all of us, Adi Guru Sadashiva, is the founder of the original yoga system. There is enough detailed description, including yoga postures and breathing methods, written directly by Sadashiva. Knowing the original source and original author is very important for keeping the purity of a tradition or knowledge branch. Knowing the originator, founding father, his intentions, revelations, knowledge about that is too important. Any knowledge branch will be only complete if intentions of author are revealed to the person studying.

Second, which you have never been told, which you need to be aware. Always, as per original source, any practice you are asked to do …, original sources are available. Please understand, people who try to establish themselves as a branch of yoga have messed up yoga. (more…)

In your Creation bring Integrity, in your Sustenance bring Authenticity, in your Destruction bring Responsibility, when you are in delusion decide to throw yourself away and get into Enriching!


2 Comments

The manifest and unmanifest components of Sadashiva is part of you.  The manifest is Sadyojatam, Tatpurusham, Aghoram, Vamadevam, Ishanam. If I put it in your user-friendly language— I should tell you, I am not translating, I am putting in user-friendly language, means roughly equating it. Tatpurusha, Aghora, Vamadeva, Sadyojata, Ishana—these are the five manifest aspects of Sadashiva. If I have to put it into user-friendly language, I should say—creation, maintenance, destruction, delusion and liberation.  Listen. You go through all the five. When you are in the mode of creation, if you add Integrity, you will manifest Sadāshiva’s creation. Listen. When you are in the mode of creation, add Integrity to you—you will manifest Sadashiva.

Let me repeat. When you are in the creation mode, add Integrity to it.

You may ask, “What is creation mode?”

When you feel like doing something active. It can be your office work, it can be manifesting wealth, it can be doing something for name and fame, including career activities. Or it can be physically creating something; art, painting, drawing, even sexual desires, activities—all this belongs to creation when you are in the creation mode, bring Integrity to you, you will manifest Sadashiva—your creativity plus integrity is Sadāshiva’s creation energy, is Sadyoyata. Only from Satya, anything can be born, Jāta means born. Sadyojata means born out of Integrity. Anything, which is born out of Integrity, only will stand forever. So the creation face of Sadashiva is Sadyojata in all your creativity. It can be as simple as cooking to as complicated as manifesting wealth. It can be as lower as you think; sexual desires, or it can be as high as higher, as creating your Enlightenment. Any creation—including manifesting powers—any creation, including manifesting powers, add Integrity to it. Out of Satya, anything born, Sadyojata, anything born out of Integrity will stay forever and do good to you. 

You all have that creation mood in you, that is Aham.  When you add Integrity to it you will become Sadāshivoham, in your creativity. 

Understand. Add Integrity to all your creation. (more…)

When you stop cheating yourself with the answers with which you’ve not clicked and come back to basic questions of life you will catch, understand the life where boredom, vacation become meaningless!


No Comments

I will explain the sacred truth of the Source of Seeking.

Please understand, your very bio memory vibrates, your very bio memory actively functions, only with some of the basic questions about life. What is pleasure, how can I have more? What is pain, how can I avoid that? What is life? Is this understandings going to help me? What is joy? All these basic truths, basic understandings – how can I experience them? —  these basic questions about life only continues to make you function, act.

Entertaining these basic questions: What is pain? How can I avoid it? What is joy? how can I have more? What is life? Please understand, how many times you may hear answer for these questions from your father, mother, uncle, society, teacher, finally from Guru. How many ever times you may listen an answer for these questions, listening to better and better answers for these questions and clicking with them is maturity. Listening your own answer and experiencing once for all is enlightenment. Understand? It’s nothing but basic questions.

What is life? What is death? Why suffering? Why pain? What is bliss? What is joy? How can I have more joy? How can I have less pain? What is it that is living inside me? What is it that changes inside me? What is it that does not change inside me? What is it that is making me move? What is it that is making me tired? What makes me exciting? What makes me feel bored?

For these basic questions, if you have better and better answer and click with the better answers, that is called Maturity.

Naturally, the answer your friend gives when you were 5 year old will be different, mother who gives when you are 6 year told will be different, when your father gives when you are 14 will be different.  Finally when you reach your Guru, the answer He gives will be different.

So clicking with better and better answers is Maturity. Ultimately, clicking with your own answer, experience, and the question disappearing once for all is Enlightenment. That is Enlightenment. (more…)

Shift your exaggeration pattern towards something which can never be exaggerated, God or Guru, because you exaggerate only which you feel as You!


No Comments

Guru is nothing but the expression of God, demanding you to shift that hope for exaggeration on Divine.

Guru is nothing but the statement given to you by God, ‘Hey, Shift!’ Guru is statement of God.

God is state of Guru. Guru is statement of God. God is state of Guru.

State just gives the statement. State just gives the statement – ‘Shift! You have suffered enough with exaggerations on you. Shift now! I am here to liberate you from this need of exaggeration, to wake you up to the reality which can never be exaggerated, which is too big. You need to experientially see something with “Aaah!” to shift your pattern of exaggeration centered on you to centered on something else. That is when Guru appears and gives you the feeling “Aaaah!” Even after Guru happens in your life, don’t miss that opportunity of “Aaaah!”, that shift. Blessed are those who experience that shift! Because, they wake up! They wake up! They wake up!

If you study the whole Shiva Purana or Leelas of Mahadeva in Madurai, everything, everything is all about just giving you the experience of “Aaaah!”, and shifting your ever-exaggeration pattern from you to him. That is all! That is all! Otherwise, how will you call taking away the two eyes of an hunter, poor fellow, because he believed you, taking away his eyes, how will you call that as love? How will you call this old lady’s food you eat and then don’t work, that as love? But it is all love! Only if you shift, you will understand: IT IS LOVE! IT WAS LOVE! IT WILL BE LOVE! (more…)

Remember the right context of prayer – Soh’amasmi, and Pray. HE will give Himself to you.


No Comments

Before entering into the next verse, I only wanted to add these few ideas. Please understand, whenever you pray….See prayer is the important component of our life especially if you are a seeker. Just like breathing, prayer becomes very important part of you. Prayer just becomes you! Prayer becomes important ‘You.’

Please understand the word I am uttering – Prayer becomes important YOU. I am not saying – to you, for you. Important YOU: means one part of you should become a prayer. Prayer is very important component, very important part of your life, especially if you are seeker. But, you always need to know the right context and understanding you need to hold during prayer. When you pray to a deity or Guru, have this context – I am praying to the Source where you and me are one and the same. I do not know whether that Source is here or there; because in the beginning when you are too much inside, the Source will be outside. Slowly, slowly when you start becoming lighter and lighter, the Source will move inside. Please understand, in the beginning when you are too much occupied inside, the Source where you and the Guru or God meeting, the source point will be outside. Because you are too much inside, how can that Source be here? But, slowly, slowly when you become lighter and lighter, more and more have completion, the Source moves inside.

So pray, “Oh the Source, where you and me are one and the same, I pray to you, you make this into reality.”

Whatever you want to say, say. In this way, you will never feel cheated. Understand, Guru will not give you what you want. Your stupid mind will try to make you feel – you have been cheated. It is like, I have seen in India, girls, the moment they become 19, just because father does not buy a cell phone for her, they develop a love affair with a boy who will gift a cell phone and run away, get married. They don’t live more than 1 or 2 years, divorce and come back. Please understand, I am not talking something exaggerated. I am talking something happening in villages. When she is depressed, that father is not giving her cell phone, that boy is using that depression to put himself as a hero into her. Once she feels he is hero, over. Understand, always the negative sources will try to show themselves as hero to you, when you feel you are not granted the boon you asked from Guru or God, whatever. (more…)

Complete the frightened, arrogant child in you

Every morning, a father and a son, must be seven or eight-year-old son, both of them go for a walk. Every morning they walk outside their house. One day morning, suddenly, that son started getting frightened seeing an old tree standing in a corner and started crying, ‘Oh, it is a ghost! It is a ghost!’, started shivering, crying, and holding the father, screaming, telling him, ‘Father, please take me away from here! Take me away from here! There is a ghost!’

Please listen, if the father is trying to comfort the child, for the comfort of that child if the father is taking the child away from the tree, I tell you, it is equivalent to me giving upon you! That is the worst thing that can happen in your life! Even if you go to Hell, don’t be given upon by the Guru; you will simply come out.

If you are not given upon by the Guru, even if you go to Hell, you will just come out of Hell Fire untouched. If you are given upon by the Guru, even Heaven will burn you!

There are tons of people who are suffering in Heaven. Indra (ruler of Heaven) himself is suffering in Heaven because he can’t go anywhere else. And Heaven is the most unstable place because of a curse by a rishi. That is why, whenever you feel any pleasure, you will always feel insecurity. Whether you believe it or not, pleasure and insecurity go hand in hand. Understand, if you are not given upon by the Master, even Hell cannot touch you; even if you are in hell, Hell Fire cannot touch you; you will come out of it. If you are given upon by the Master, even Heaven will be the worst hell, suffering.  (more…)

Why is it emphasized that Guru directly should be involved in Kundalini awakening?

Listen! If it is a small cough and cold, you can even get the Across-the-Counter medicine (Over The Counter medicine – OTC) and have on your own; there won’t be a big side-effect; either it will be healed or it won’t be healed, but there won’t be a big side-effect. But, can you do surgery on yourself by yourself? Even if you are a doctor, you won’t be able to perform Open Heart Surgery on yourself, understand!

Kundalini is not just Open Heart Surgery, it is Open Being Surgery! If it is just one Kriya for your asthma, wheezing, headache, nose cleaning, you can just google in the website, internet, pick up on your own and do it. But, when it comes to such an important thing like activating the life energy in you, it should be done directly by an enlightened Master who is master of this science, in his presence, so that the Kundalini is not only awakened, but it is also made to travel in the proper direction.

You trying to awaken your own Kundalini is equivalent to you trying to do Open Heart Surgery for yourself!

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…)

Approaching everything with tremendous love and patience from the context of grasping the Truth is Seeking

With this I will move tenth verse of the Isavasya Upanishad. Please recite along with me.

 anyad evāhur vidyayā-anyad āhur avidyayā |

iti śuśruma dhīrāṇaṁ ye nastad vicacakṣire ||

I will read out the translation.

It is said 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 Truths, certainly a different result is achieved. Similarly it is said that by Avidya 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.

Listen.

Constantly keeping your seeking alive makes you grasp the Truth, you will not try to grab them. Understand, for example you see somebody melting down, overflowing, with that melting devotion offers a Bilva leaf to Mahadeva and he is liberated. You see that and then you also decide, Yes, if I pluck that tree, leaf and put it on this statue I will have liberation. That is what is grabbing the Truth. Understand, you are not grasping it, you are grabbing it. You only see the action. (more…)

Listening to the truths but not living them, is the most dangerous

andhaṁ tamaḥ praviśanti ye’avidyām upāsate |

tato bhūya iva te tamo yau vidyāyāṁ ratāḥ || 9 ||

Those who worship avidyā, the ignorance that veils the true knowledge of Truth, Consciousness, enter into blinding darkness characterized by the absence of perception; but into greater darkness of ignorance than that, enter they who, considering themselves as scholarly and learned, are engaged in vidyā, the incomplete knowledge acquired for vested interests characterized by the impure perception of Truth, Consciousness.

Listen. These two concepts you need to understand. One, those who worship ignorance, the initial level seekers get into a kind of a tiredness, boredom, unable to move further, don’t care attitude about ignorance. This is one group.

There is another group, little advanced level seekers, but, after certain amount of time, listen, please listen, when you spent time with certain concepts and don’t align your life to those concepts, you will feel acquaintance with that concepts. Intellectually, but not experientially. Familiarity always breeds contempt, even with the idea you are the consciousness, if you are acquainted, means if you are having exposure to that idea, you are thinking about it quite a long time, but you never made that as your cognition, you never transformed your Life, you never aligned your life to the truth, then slowly, slowly, slowly, you think what you living what you are doing is much better than common men, normal people who don’t even know they are Consciousness.

So with this justification, the worship of imperfect knowledge, the incomplete knowledge, starts, the danger is by now, you know how to manipulate others, how to be a half-guru, all your neighborhood gurus are formed like this only; each neighborhood will have one guru, in India, each street will have one Jagat guru. You can ask him “why are you calling yourself as Jagat Guru?”, “No, I have one disciple I have named as Jagat, so I am Guru of Jagat  so I am Jagat Guru.” (more…)

Be established in Powerfulness by meditating on “Ekam”, Oneness!

I tell you, this verse, each word of this verse is setting the context for your mind to enter into the Source.  Each word in this verse leads you to meditation.  Sit and cognize!  Intranalyze!

अनेजदेकं मनसो जवीयो नैनधेवा आप्नुवन्पुर्वमर्षत् |

तद्धावतोऽन्यानत्येत तिष्ठत् तस्मिन्नपो मातरिश्वा दधाति ||

Anejadhekam Manaso Javeeyo Nainadhdheva Aapnuvanpurvamarshath |

ThadhDhaavathonyanathyetha Thishttath Thasminnapo Maatharishva dhadhDhaathi || 

My pronunciation is as I heard from my gurus.  My gurus were born and brought up as Tamilians.  So, you will see a thick Tamil accent in this Sanskrit pronunciation.  But, as a respect to them, I am not changing the “Paatta Bheda”; I am just retaining it as it is.

Understand, “Anejadh” (अनेजद्): “Unmoving”.  Sit.  When you sit and contemplate on “Unmoving”, you are setting the context for your mind to reach its Source and purify itself, complete itself.  Cognizing each word in this verse, meditating on each word in this sutra, will lead you towards the Source and lead you towards Completion, lead you towards fulfilment.

Anejadhekam (अनेजदेकं).  Listen!  Yesterday I asked you to meditate on the word “Anejadh” (अनेजद्).  Now, today, we will work just on this one word – “Ekam” (एकम्).  “Ekam” (एकम्) cannot be translated as “One”.  It can only be translated as “Oneness”.  Please understand, if something is “Unmoving”, and it is only “One”, then it should be the largest!  Then nothing else can happen!  It will be a huge one stone!  So, the word “One” for “Ekam” (एकम्) is not the right translation.  “Oneness” is the right translation.  Because, in “One”, internal evolving, expression, is not possible; but, in “Oneness”, internal expansion, evolution, everything is possible.  Understand, “One” is dead; “Oneness” is alive!  The very word “One” means “dead”!  “Oneness” means “LIVING”!

Let me expand from a different angle the same truth, from this mantra, a practical, user-friendly way to use this verse. 

Whenever you make a conscious decision to say “YES” to life, listen, whenever you make a conscious decision to say “YES” to life, all the other energies associated to life get awakened in you, understand?  A simple “dhaana”, means, “charity”, you give some money for somebody’s medical expense, or you give some food for somebody, listen, simple “Anna Dhaana” awakens, because Anna Dhaana is “saying YES to somebody’s life” He is suffering with hunger – hunger is considered as one of the diseases in Ayurvedic Tradition; giving food is curing the disease – the moment you give food, you say “YES” to his life, and I tell you, immediately the life energy in your stomach will be awakened! 

Anybody, please understand, as an authority on this Cosmic science, the science how the Cosmic energy works, as the authority on the Dharma, with all my integrity, authenticity, I am declaring, I am revealing this truth,

please understand,

whenever you share food, do “Anna Dhaana”, you say “YES” to somebody’s life, and the life energy in your stomach is awakened!  So, any disease related to your stomach is healed!  (more…)

Please understand, the perception evolving, evolution of the perception is a gift happening to you, which is just happening from Perception to Fact, Fact to Truth, Truth to Reality. And anybody who stops the evolution of perception commits spiritual suicide, “Atma Hathya”, understand? “Atma Hathya”, that is the word I will use. Killing the soul, the possibility! Killing the soul and possibility! I am telling you, not to frighten you, not to correct you, not to control you, not even I am interested in guiding you. And I know nobody listens to me! After talking twelve-thousand hours last fifteen years, I am very clear on my conclusion that nobody listens to me! I am talking for me to listen to me, understand? With this clarity I am declaring this truth. Upanishads just declare their own strength by their own statements. They don’t need any author to authenticate them. Same way, whatever I am talking, the dharma, the truth, I am revealing it for myself! The listener’s listening does not need to authenticate what is being uttered. With this clarity I am uttering these words:

Listen!

WHATEVER YOU HOLD WITH FEAR OF LOSING IT, EXACTLY THAT WILL ONLY BE TAKEN AWAY FROM YOU!

I am telling you…..

Isha, Kena, Katha, Prashna, Mundaka, Mandukya, Aithareya, Taittiriya


1 Comment

Please understand, I am following the arrangement as per the Advaithic Tradition. Actually, Ishavasya Upanishad is part of the Yajur Veda, not Rig Veda. But, all Advaithic tradition masters commented on Ishavasya first. The arrangement is very unique: Isha, Kena, Katha, Prashna, Mundaka, Mandukya, Aithareya, Taittiriya. This was the set organized way followed by almost all Advaithic masters. But, originally, in the Vedas itself, they are not organized in this way. Ishavasya Upanishad comes in Yajur Veda. So, they are not organized in the way it is commented by Advaithic masters. May be the masters felt these Upanishads support one by one your enlightenment process; so they organized it. I am following the structure organized by the Advaithic masters.

The first sutra! Please listen! Let us repeat:

ईशावास्यमिदं सर्वं यत्किञ्च जगत्यां जगत् ।
तेन त्यक्तेन भुञ्जीथा मा गृधः कस्यस्विद्धनम् ॥ 1 ॥

Eeshaavaasyamidham Sarvam Yathkincha Jagathyaam Jagath |
Thena Thyakthena Bhunjeethaa Ma Gridhah Kasyasviddhanam ||

In the original writing, the sutra is “Jagathyaam Jagath” (जगत्यां जगत्). But, if you see, when I pronounce, I will be pronouncing as “Jagathu”. This is the way I heard from my masters. It is called “Paata Bhedha”. See, the accent, each master has his own accent. Originally I heard the Upanishads from Isakki Swami, Yogananda Puri, and Vibhootananda Puri – these three. So, when I heard from them, the accent with which I heard is usually revered and respected as “Paata Bhedha”. And, moreover, when I retain the accent, I also remember them, and it is the way of honouring the Guru, retaining the “Paata Bhedha” of the Guru – means, the accent of the Guru – without questioning or trying to correct. It is a kind of respect and reverence shown to the masters in Vedic Tradition. It is called “Paata Bhedha”. Means, your teacher in your area, the way he teaches, the way he chants, the way the accent is maintained, just retaining it. When I heard the same Upanishads in Ramakrishna Mission in Bengal, the pronounciation and accent is a little different: “EeshOvOshyOmidhOm ShOrvOm YOthkinchO JOgOthyOm JOgOth”. Because, in Bengal, all the “ah” will become “oh”. In Bengali, it is never “VivekanAndA”; it is “BiBekanOndO”. So, retaining that accent is the respect given to that Guru, and it is called “Paata Bhedha” in our tradition. The way I heard exactly from my masters, I am repeating, retaining the “Paata Bhedha”. The way I chant – “JagathU”, “dhanammm” – all these additions are not actually available in the form of letter in the original verses. But, I just wanted to retain the purity of the “Paata Bhedha”. I don’t feel “Paata Bhedha” is in any way disturbing the originality of the verses. So I am retaining it as it is.

Creation of Space


2 Comments

Every time you visualize and make it into reality, it is called “Creation”.  But you visualize, you didn’t make it into reality, you failed, means, it is only “Recreation”, it cannot be direct creation. Please understand, every time you hold a space for something, if there is incompletion, if there is an incompletion, the reality you created collapses.  So, again you will have to complete this incompletion and hold that reality back.  So, listen, so it cannot be called as “Creation”. 

I wanted everyone of you to provide intense listening, because one of the major mistakes we are doing in the Science of Creating Space and why we go on losing confidence over space or blaming ourselves, ‘Oh, this space creation and all works sometimes, doesn’t work sometimes, many times it doesn’t work.’ Listen!  I want you to learn these nitty-gritty’s of space creation.  Once you create a space, if there is an incompletion, the whole space collapses. Don’t think if you just complete that incompletion, that space runs.  No!  You have to recreate again.  So, whenever you find an incompletion, complete that incompletion and drop and recreate the whole space again.  Only then it gets its own individual energy, intelligence, inspiration.

Listen!  I will give you the exact example.  For example, I wanted health, or some things to happen as I want.  It is an example I am giving.  Let me give you an example of…..  If you want wealth, you create the space for attracting may be hundred million dollars.  After you created the space, after two-three minutes, you think, ‘Baaah!  Who is going to get fooled by this space creation idea and all?  May be by teaching this space creation idea, HE (Swamiji) might have become what HE wanted to achieve, but we have not got anything.’  Some foolish things.  But the moment that incompletion comes, you catch that, you catch your SDHD (Self-Doubt, Hatred, Denial) and complete with that and drop.  After you complete and drop, you think that space you created earlier is by itself powerful.  No!  Once you complete the incompletion, again you have to visualize step-by-step and create the space, because when you complete the incompletions and drop them, along with that, the visualization you created earlier also goes away. 

See, the next few days I really wanted to teach you the science of space creation.  The science of space creation is a self-Kundalini-awakening process, understand?  The science of space creation is a self-Kundalini-awakening process.  You can awaken your Kundalini on your own right, on your own energy, on your own intelligence.  You can awaken your Kundalini on your own.  This science of space creation, the science of creating the space can awaken your Kundalini on your own and keep your Kundalini in the right direction.

Upanishads

When You Sit, Truth is revealed !

UPANISHADS!  Actually, just every day when I come and sit here and utter that word, “Upanishads”, the way the truths are overflowing, verbalization becomes a big job!  Finding ideas is not at all a big job; verbalizing them has become a big job!

There are tons of books and tons of authors.  But, this book, Upanishads, to tell you honestly, if I have to put it a little poetically, the words feel shy to introduce Upanishads!  Words feel shy to introduce Upanishads!  If a child asks, ‘What is the size of an apple?’, you can show like this (Swamiji gestures with his hands).  ‘What is the size of a pumpkin?’, you can show like this (Swamiji again gestures with his hands).  If the child asks, ‘What is the size of the Planet Earth?’, can you show like this?  (Swamiji spreads his arms wide).  No!  This is not in any way signifying the size of the Planet Earth!  You can show, ‘This big!’  (Swamiji again spreads his arms wide).  But, that is in no way signifying the size of the Planet Earth!  That is in no way doing justification to the size of the Planet Earth!  Please understand!  So, what will I do with these words to introduce Upanishads?  I can only pull my mouth like this and say, “It is this big!’ 

The way they introduce you to you, the way they introduce the world to you, the way they introduce god to you, the way they introduce life to you, nothing can be compared to Upanishads.  Whether the purity of the substance they are delivering, or the poetic way they are expressing, or the very sound in which they have nicely embedded the vibrations of Kundalini awakening!  Upanishads not only have a linguistic and poetic importance, meaning, they have even phonetic importance.  Even phonetically they are important.  Actually, by the religious historians classifying Upanishads under Hinduism, they brought a great respect to Hinduism.  And, of course, Hindus are the inheritors.  It is our inheritance, no doubt.  But we need to live it and share it with the world.  It does not belong just to us.  Please understand, we might have been inheritors, but it does not belong just to us; it belongs to the whole universe!   (more…)

Whatever way you perceive you in your inner image, you will exactly attract those same people around you.

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

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

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

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

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

Most Important Person (MIP)

When I had the enlightenment experience, first instruction Kuppammal gave me is this only. Around two-and-a-half days I was in that vast 360 degree experience. It will feel like as if the whole sky is centred on my Ananda Gandha. If I have to put a cartoon, huge, the whole sky and I have to bring two line and connect it to my Ananda Gandha. It will look like a huge balloon which is tied to my Ananda Gandha, and that balloon is the whole Cosmos! She (Kuppammal) used to cook and feed me and she also used to give lot of uncooked herbs to prepare my body and keep my body stable.

The first instruction she gave after two-and-a-half days: ‘Remember, Brahmaivaaham’! Please understand, she says, ‘Remember, this body is the vehicle of Brahman, Cosmos.’ She did not tell me ‘Aham Brahmasmi’. She said, ‘Brahmaivaaham’! Means, this body is a vehicle of that Brahman. You are carrying the most important person in the world. Not VIP, Very Important Person; MIP, Most Important Person. Let’s create a new word…..HAHAHAHAHA: ‘Most Important Person’! Brahmaivaaham! Luxury of the Kundalini! Again and again I want to repeat that word, ‘Luxury of Kundalini’. ‘Veda Shaastra Guru Tatthu Swayam Ananda Lakshanam’! ‘As per the Vedas, Shaastras and teachings of the Guru, my Self is the pure bliss’! When you come to this experience that is what I call ‘Luxury of Kundalini’.

How you carry your shoulders and neck every day when you walk out of your room to live your life, what you carry in your eyes to share with the world…. Understand, whatever you carry in your eyes, nose, face, mouth, it gets shared with the world without even you pressing the ‘share’ button! Without you clicking the ‘share’ button, it gets shared! That is why Vivekananda says, ‘If you are carrying stupid depression, don’t come out of the room. Better you lock yourself in the room!’ Be a ‘poadugaali’; that’s enough! In Tamil, there are two words – ‘oadugaali’ and ‘poadugaali’. When they are depressed if they run away, they are ‘oadugaalis’. When they are depressed if they run inside the room, they are ‘poadugaalis’. HAHAHAHA! Being a ‘poadugaali’ is much better than being a ‘oadugaali’. HAHAHAHA! These are all Tamil village slang words. Understand what you carry……. Whether it is a webinar or Inner Awakening Level-1 or 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 or 6 it all boils down to: Awaken your Kundalini! (more…)

Living Advaitha VII

…continued from Living Advaitha VI

Please understand, when you have described your identity, when you describe consciously how you want to be and ask your teamily to support you, give you the input, what all the incompletions you may have to complete, and after the teamily gives the input if you also work with it and complete all the incompletions you are carrying.

Please understand, I am giving you some of the examples so that you can be very practical and very precise.  Please listen, I will give you some of the most practical hints. See, for example, if you want always people should perceive you as a loving, caring, joyful being, the first thing you need to complete is, you may be having a deep non-trusting attitude.  Listen!  In the heart if you carry the non-trusting attitude, naturally, neither you will be comfortable with people, nor people will be comfortable with you.  So, first thing you need to do is completing with the non-trusting attitude and building up the ability to trust.  May be, if you tell your whole teamily that this is where you need to do Completion, your whole teamily will be constantly reminding you.

Teamily is nothing but the embodiment of Guru surrounding you from all corners.  Listen!  Teamily is nothing but embodiment of Guru surrounding you from all corners, constantly reminding you. 

If you always want to be perceived as a loving, caring, blissful being, you have a deep incompletion about trusting others, if you tell this to everyone, share this with your whole teamily, your whole teamily will be constantly helping you to separate and see your insecurity and the real, actual threat possibility.  Many times, if the threat possibility is even very small, because of your insecurity you cannot trust, your teamily can constantly help you to separate these two.  And, I tell you, only when you separate these two, you make a successful right strategy even for your security.  When you are constantly agitated about the cockroach, you allow the scorpion in your bed!  Because, constantly, you are frightened about the cockroach, you are too busy in protecting you from the cockroach, you allow the cobra and scorpion in your bed!  They both are sitting there to receive you!  When you separate the real possibility of threat and your incompletion, insecurity superimposed, these two separate, listen, listen, only then, only then even the security will be better.  The whole teamily will help you, support you, constantly remind you.  That is why the teamily.  But, I am very clear, I don’t want anybody other than your teamily to know your incompletions.  An onlooker or a person on the street can exploit you constantly.  I don’t want that.  The teamily should be a loving space for you to grow. Like how you help youraasandhari to grow.

I tell you, some of the best moments of my life was when I was serving Arunagiri Yogishwara, Raghupathi Yogi, and a great sadhu in Ramakrishna Mission, Swami Gautamananda.  Of course, Swami Gautamananda will never even imagine I will still be carrying so much of love and reverence and respect for him in my heart, but, the time I served him, I got an insider’s view of a powerful sadhu’s life.  Understand, he was not an ordinary sannyasi of the Ramakrishna Order; he was one of the Trustees.  Ramakrishna Mission has only eleven Trustees, and he was one, and a senior Trustee.  I think he now even gives initiation.  In Ramakrishna Mission, only one or two people are allowed to give initiation in the whole Order.  He is one of the two-three who give initiation, Mantra Deeksha.  So, such a top-level sadhu.  When I had the possibility to see his life very closely….Wow!  I tell you, the amount of integrity and purity with the whole day spent, the amount of integrity and purity used even to take administrative decisions of the organization, not just the personal decisions, even the administrative decisions of the organization!  I tell you, as long as we remain pure, we retain our integrity even in our administrative decisions, we will continue to exist.
