Reducing the engrams in the first four layers is making friends with your body and best way to heal yourself!


No Comments

We have seven energy layers in our body.

The first layer is the physical body layer that you carry, made out of flesh and blood.

The second layer is made up of the prana movement inside your body. Prana is actually the life energy that you take in when you breathe. Air is the medium that brings in prana for sustaining your life. There are five stages in the movement of prana in your body that constitute what is called pranic* body or breath body layer.

The next layer is the mental body layer. The continuous words or thoughts that rise in you are called inner chatter. The inner chattering that is continuously going on inside of you is the mental body layer.

The fourth layer is the emotion layer. I can say that intense inner chatter that does not respond to your logical analysis is what we call ‘emotions’.

The silence you experience during deep sleep is the fifth layer. It is called the causal body layer.

In deep meditation, the joy and the intense vibrant silence from the thoughtless awareness that you experience is the sixth layer.

The seventh layer is enlightenment.

We store different samskaras in each of the seven different layers.

Chronic fatigue is deeply related to the intense craving for rest. Please understand that this intense craving for rest brings diseases that will make you bedridden.

Actually if you see any advertisement for resorts, especially beach resorts, it will show a beautiful beach, an easy resting chair and a picture of somebody resting and looking so relaxed. The moment you see that, immediately something starts happening in you. You feel that you too should also be lying like that, completely resting, totally in peacefulness, in deep peace. That is what I call intense craving for tamas.

Understand, if you really find that same beach, that same chair and lie down, you will not have that same peace that you visualized. Till you exhaust the tamas engrams, the lethargy engrams, that you carry in the physical layer you cannot rest. Your desire for rest will not let you rest because the desire is from engrams, from samskaras.

Try to find the same beach, same chair, same bench, same place and lie down. The moment you start resting, in a few minutes this samskara will settle down and the next layer samskara will come up. Even your decision to rest, if based on a samskara, you cannot rest.

The samskaras related to chronic fatigue or tiredness are stored in the physical body. That is why when you try to do some exercise, a workout, or even simple walking, the first thing the body will bring out is tiredness. But without bothering about these first level samskaras that are rising, if you continue to enter into the action, suddenly you will see that the same action brings energy out of you. If you start walking, in a few minutes your mind will suggest ten times, ‘I am tired. No…It is too much! We did enough! That is enough for today. Tomorrow we can do.’ But if you don’t bother about these samskaras and just go ahead, within a few minutes the same action will bring energy.

Chronic fatigue, which is a deep feeling to be in inaction, to be in rest or non-moving state, is stored in the physical body layer.

I can say that when the deep desire for vacation or the deep desire for rest, the chronic fatigue, leaves your system, ninty per cent of your spiritual journey is over. This first layer samskara is the worst problem.

The next layer is the prana or breath layer. The samskaras related to desire are stored in the prana, the breathing. That is why, whenever your desires are changing, suddenly you will see the breathing pattern will also change. For example, if you are caught by strong desire like lust or anger, your breathing pattern will change. It will be chaotic. The more you enter into action based on those desires the stronger these engrams will become.

The third layer is the mental layer. In the pranic layer, which is the second layer, you store your thoughts about how your life should be. In the mental layer, you store your engrams about how your life shouldn’t have been. This layer is built on guilt.

If your energy is flowing continuously towards the future, it is desire. If your energy is flowing continuously towards the past, it is guilt.

In the case of this layer, you don’t need to do the same action again to strengthen the engram. Just the information or remembrance about that action will strengthen the engram. For example, if you have seen the same place, or if you are seeing the same person, if you are facing the same situation, immediately those engrams will become strong and they will be awakened.

The fourth layer is to do with emotions. In this layer, you store all the visualizations related to pain.

Understand, this fourth layer of pain is a very powerful layer. You don’t need any action or information to strengthen the engrams. Neither do you need action nor do you need information related to pain.

So you don’t have to have the same pain again and again. You don’t even need to receive information related to that pain. Just the engrams are enough. They can multiply. They can simply expand and multiply.

The fifth layer is what you experience in deep sleep. Even though there are engrams in this layer, you cannot do anything about them, because in the deep sleep, your mind cannot do anything. It is an unconscious layer.

If in the first four layers you can reduce the depth of the engrams, samskaras, the fifth layer and the sixth layer will be cleansed naturally. The fifth layer will be cleansed if you clean the first four layers. If the fifth layer is cleansed, you will start experiencing the sixth layer more and more. The sixth layer is the meditation layer.

If you are getting into the deep sleep layer more easily, it means the first four layers are clean. If the first four layers are not clean, then you will suffer more in the fifth layer. That is why, when you have more stress and load, a lot of suffering related to sleep starts happening in life.

Not only that, if the engrams in the first four layers are too many, in the fifth layer, the relationship between you and your body gets disconnected. Reducing the engrams in the first four layers is making friends with your body.

We don’t realize how we abuse the body. Understand, if you are overweight, it is directly connected to some of these engrams. When you feel lonely and empty inside, you start filling it. You start filling it with food or by drinking. Usually women choose food. Men decide to drink. Of course, in the modern developed society, you can’t generalize! When you are feeling empty and lonely, you have to fill yourself with something.

Every single thing happening in your life is directly connected to some engrams. Removing these engrams, I can say, is making friends with your body, creating a deep friendship with your body. This is the best way to heal yourself.

Actually, Upanishads set the context. Agamas are applied science. Upanishads are like pure science. Agamas are the applied science. Upanishads. Its like a Upanishads define the greatness of Varanasi. Agamas are like GPS to enter into Varanasi and enjoy Varanasi. It is like Upanishads explain the glory through the great principle.

Agamas give you the exact science. Upanishads explain you the glory. Agamas give you the exact science.

I will start with the Shanti Mantra of Kena Upanishad. Please understand, the beauty of Vedic education system. Always education starts with peace, ends with peace because education is the most powerful weapon, either can be used for peace or violence. Understand, education is the most powerful weapon, either can be used for peace or for violence. Vedic tradition insists you becoming rich through education should always be for the peace of the Universe. It should increase the frequency of the peace of the Universe not increase the frequency of the violence in the Universe. I tell you, future wars will not have winners. Future wars will not have winners because we have used education, knowledge to the extreme of violence. We have accumulated enough weapon to demolish not just all the buildings but destroy the very Planet Earth itself for more than 800 times, understand. 800 times we can blow the Planet Earth, so much of weapons are accumulated. Nowaday countries don’t talk about chemical weapons where human beings will be eradicated, just blowing up the planet earth. That’s the latest trend. Understand, the knowledge, education is used for violence nothing will be left out.

Vedic tradition is very clear. The thought current called knowledge should always start with peace and end with peace.

All Upanishads, all the 108 Upanishads has only one similarity. Please understand, all 108 Upanishads does not teach one God, does not teach one philosophy. Sometimes not only they contradict themselves, they are completely opposite to each other. All the 108 Upanishads have only one thing in common; they declare themselves – start with the peace and end with the peace. Other than this, nothing else is in common among all the 108 Upanishads.

Today, the Kundalini thought current, I want to share with all of you, listen, listen intensely and actively.  When you come to the space of listening, whatever I am speaking will become directly reality into your system.  See, every week, I am giving you, a new, new Kundalini thought current, thought current which will lead you into the conscious space.  If you are in the space of listening, just it will become part of you and it will go on and on inside you; it will simply manifest as reality in you.

Today’s thought current; I’ll just connect and tell you clearly.

First thought current I gave you is: You are your Intention, nothing else, neither physiological, nor psychological or neurological experiences, or you.  You are beyond all of that.

Now listen to this thought current: Everything your life is made of is your very expression.  Listen, everything your life is made of is your very expression. Experientially, playing with them, changing them, altering them, manipulating them, is powers, Siddhis.  Understanding, no need to play with any of this, you are beyond and going beyond, is Enlightenment.  

Listen now. Listen now. Now what I said is pure science.  Mahadeva gives a very powerful, practical methodology to experientially realize this statement.  The statement, which I uttered, now is a Sutra, pure science.  

Whatever you see in your life, including the walls of this hall and me sitting in front of you, this throne, your chair, the people sitting around you, everything is made of a material, which is from inside you. You can alter, manipulate, extend, reduce, change, everything as you want. Please understand, everything you see in your life, is made out of a stuff, which comes from your very Self. The wax, the material in which your waking state is made and your dream state is made, that material is from you, inside you; just like cobweb.  It’s from you, the material is manifested.

Listen, listen, how this can become our realization, how this can become our realization? This thought current, now which I said is pure science.  Now, Mahadeva comes next to applied science – how to make that into reality for you and how to use that in your day-to-day life.  It’s a very beautiful revelation.

The essence of Kenopanishad is—asking, seeking the source of the Whole.

Understand, seeking the source of you is essence of Isavasya Upanishad.

Seeking the Source of the Whole is the essence of Kenopanishad.

Seeking what happens after death is the source of, that’s the essence of Kathopanishad.

Each Upanishad, please understand, carefully you have to listen now. Each Upanishad gives a thought current, not answers, no.

If you read Isavasya Upanishad you’re not going to have the answer for “Who am I?”

NO!

If you read Kenopanishad, you are not going to have the answer for “What is the source of all this?” No.

If you read Kathopanishad, you’re not going to have the answer for “What happens after death?” No.

But if you contemplate, if you do manana, if you entertain, engage with the thought current this Upanishad opens up in you, suggests in you, you will have answers. You will have experience, you will have experiential solutions.

Listen carefully.

If you entertain the thought current of Isavasya Upanishad, you will simply have solution for the problem of —“Who am I?”

The identity crisis will just dissolve the pratyagātma caitanya jāgratam – the individual consciousness awakening, will simply happen in your system. And, listen carefully…Upanishads are penned down in such a way, if you start entertaining them, start cherishing them, celebrating them, they open up experiences in you, but you can never make a shop out of them. Means, you can’t sell the ideas from Upanishads; because in no Upanishad, no conclusion will be given to you as dos and don’ts. Do this, don’t do that, no. Vidhi niśedha cannot be given.

I am fortunate I am born in a tradition where you can’t make a franchise. You can’t make a franchisee, the franchisee religions. The Vedic tradition is so pure, it can only give thought currents. You enjoy, celebrate the thought currents, you will find solutions for your life. (more…)

Manifesting Powers, Third-Eye Awakening

Vegetarianism, technique to awaken third-eye


No Comments

The human body is naturally designed for vegetarian food. The inner mechanisms like feeling, thinking, words, everything is designed to function with vegetarian food. It is like having a generator which can handle only 220 Volt current, or a UPS which can handle only 220 Volt current, but it is given 20,000 Volts current. What will happen? It will get fused. Same way, if the system is designed by the nature for vegetarian food and non-vegetarian food is constantly dumped into it due to ignorance, the results will need to be faced. Many people present unwarranted arguments like, “No, in the ancient times, human-beings were non-vegetarians.” No, they were fruit-eaters. They were vegetarians, leaf eaters, fruit eaters. Only when they started killing animals to save themselves, to protect themselves, they started thinking that disposing of the dead animals is a very difficult job; eating them might be a better way of disposal. That is the way first human beings started making their stomach a graveyard for animals. Originally, humans were not designed for meat eating. Basically, the human body is designed for vegetarianism.

The food without anxiety, fear, depression bio-memories, if they are consumed by a person, the energy with which they think, the energy with which they utter words, the energy with which they act, the energy with which they feel, everything will be aligned to the natural source of energy; it will be aligned to nature which is the inner potential energy. Unfortunately, the food with fear, depression, anxiety bio-memory, because of its popularity and availability became a mainstream lifestyle. This was one of the greatest calamities that happened to humanity. In Sanskrit we have three words: Jaati Dosha, Nimitta Dosha and Aashreya Dosha. They mean: food getting impure “by its nature”, “by its muscle memory”, and “by the persons handling it”.

Jaati Dosha – By its nature: if it is obtained by stealing or killing, or depriving somebody, it is impure food because if it is stolen food, even while you eat, you will have the anxiety to quickly grab it, finish it off before it gets snatched away. By its nature if it is stolen, robbed, after killing, it is impure. In the first level itself, non vegetarian food is impure because the flesh of an animal is stolen after killing it.

Nimitta Dosha – By its muscle memory: the way the food comes to someone. When it comes to someone, the non-vegetarian food comes with so much of anger, fear, depression bio-memories filled in it. It can never be anywhere near to pure food.

Aashreya Dosha – By the people who handle it, touch it: Non vegetarian food is touched by people who kill the animal! Anything which is touched by a murderer is going to carry that energy in it. So, the person adds a little more poison as his contribution This explains the amount of impurity the non vegetarian food carries. Vegetarian food, on the contrary, is a natural part of the whole bio-energy. With the vegetarian diet, the thinking becomes more subtle and settled. The agitation, aggression disappears.

I have seen in my life, in my travels all over the world – meeting different cultures, civilization, people and I can tell you from my experience, people who live as vegetarians, their bio-energy is very high, their bio-memory is very high. I can give you various deeper understandings about it. Constantly, the emotions that are cherished become the source of bio-energy. Whatever is the source of someone’s bio-energy impacts their thinking. It is like a vicious circle. Just the right food, the pure food, which is pure by its nature, by right persons handling it, and right way it is brought to you, this pure food alone is enough to kindle, awaken the natural energy you are carrying, what I call ‘Kundalini Shakti’ or ‘inner potential energy’ or your ‘bio-energy.’” – Paramahamsa Nithyananda

All human beings who are seeking the spiritual life should live a vegetarian lifestyle. If one understands this truth – ‘You become what you eat, what you eat becomes you’ – one can see very clearly how the non vegetarian food adversely impacts the bio-memory and muscle-memory, and how vegetarian food comes to you with higher intelligence like producing energy directly from ether, air and space, and going to become part of you.” Non vegetarian food destroys all possibilities of manifesting powers and awakening the Third Eye. All powers manifest from Oneness with Sadashiva. Non vegetarianism is completely opposite to the principle of Oneness. When operating from Oneness with the Whole, one cannot even think of killing another being for a snack! The depressed bio-memory of the killed animals, when ingested, does not allow the body and mind to settle with higher experiences and elevated states of consciousness. It continues to keep the body and mind in binding, depressing thought currents. Vegetarianism is the biggest pre-requisite for manifesting the powers of Sadashiva. It not only supports Third Eye Awakening , but also tunes the body and mind to receive and retain the highest experiences and initiations when showered by The Avatar™. Vegetarianism is the lifestyle of enlightenment.

Bigata Vajra, Attributes of an Avatar – X


No Comments

Bigata Vajra is the ability to spontaneously return to health under any conditions, referred to in the Linga Purana as a quality of Shiva Himself. This quality was demonstrated in December 2015, when Paramahamsa Nithyananda defied medical science with a spontaneous recovery from the dreaded dengue.

In December 2015, while in Phuket, Thailand for conducting the Inner Awakening® Shivoham program, Paramahamsa Nithyananda developed high fever and body ache. Immediately after informing his physician, He dissociated from the pain and fever, and for the next 15 days continued with the Shivoham process without any rest, and without any sign or symptom of the condition. Meanwhile, the blood test for dengue was performed in Phuket, and also later repeated in Bengaluru about a month later. The test report showed very high level (>4 times) the normal of IgG antibodies, which suggested a recent severe dengue infection. However, the first blood counts in Phuket were low, but became completely normal by the second blood test in Bengaluru (within a gap of about 3 weeks). This demonstrates not only a very strong immune system, but also the ability to dissociate from fever and pain to perform the normal vigorous duties of the day, and also the spontaneous healing of the disease without any medical intervention.

Purnatva (Perpetual Completion), Attributes of an Avatar – II


No Comments

The ultimate state of Enlightenment is the no-mind state, or to put it more accurately, the state in which the observer is dissociated from his emotions and thoughts, leading to a significant drop in the number of thoughts created. For the seeker, the sincere practice of Unclutching® or the conscious dissociation from thoughts, leads to a state of purnatva or completion, by virtue of freeing him from the influence of the endless stream of thoughts and mental patterns that continuously spur one to action and trap one in the insidious web of karma.
Through a structured program called Inner Awakening® lasting 21 days, Paramahamsa Nithyananda guides participants to the space of completion through yoga, practical teachings, deep cleansing processes, and a battery of 21 powerful energy initiations (energy darshans).  This gives participants an unforgettable glimpse of Enlightenment, and further practice establishes them in the state of perpetual Completion or Living Enlightenment.

I will enter into Isavasya Upanishad, thirteenth (13th) verse. Please chant along with me.

anyad-evāhuḥ sambhavād anyad-āhur-asambhavāt |

iti śuśruma dhīrāṇāṁ ye nastad vicacakṣire || 13 ||

 Translation goes:

It is said that from the worship of the imperishable Consciousness, the cause of manifestation [sambhavāt] certainly a different result is attained. And it is said that from the worship of the manifested, perishable entities [asambhavāt] such as gods, spirits, ancestors, a very different result is attained—thus we have heard the revelation from those wise beings who explained that absolute principle to us.

Listen.

What should be your goal? What needs to be worshipped? What should be the ultimate cherished object of you? — that question is being analyzed and answered here. Listen. What should be the cherished goal?

Please understand, whatever you cherish as goal is only worshipped by you. Worship does not mean the few minutes you bow down or the aarti (offering light to divine) you show or the food you offer. Worship means what you constantly remember as highest possibility for you; what you constantly remember as completion of you; what you constantly remember as possibility of you. If you think money will bring fulfillment to you, money fulfills you, naturally money is only worshiped by you. Even if you worship any God in any form you are worshiping for the sake of money. So money is only worshipped in this form. If you are worshiping Lakshmi for the sake of money, you are actually worshipping only money not Lakshmi. Lakshmi is only, as long as she is the embodiment of money. Suddenly if Lakshmi decides – “I am not going to disperse money to people who call upon me”, you will stop worshiping!

So understand, if you are worshiping Saraswati just for knowledge, you are only worshiping knowledge. Whatever you think as the fruit of your life, whatever you think is needed for your completion whatever you think is needed for your fulfillment, what you think as the better half of you, the other part of you… Listen. In one of His teachings, Ramana Maharishi says very clearly – it is very difficult to feel the spirituality, the social conscious awakening is what is required for you to feel fulfillment, because most of us never become sensitive enough to perceive the ultimate truth as it is. Understand our perception always gets stuck. (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!

How to awaken Kundalini Shakti ?


No Comments

Listen! Listen to the deeper secrets of this Kundalini.

This Kundalini is the bridge between man and God. This Kundalini is the source of the energy in all of us. This can be awakened by various methods, including fear and greed. Even fear and greed awakens the Kundalini, but, every time, it weakens also. It is like Kundalini is described as a sleeping snake in Tantric tradition. Each time your fear or greed awakens Kundalini, it is equivalent to throwing a stone on the snake and making the snake hiss. Yes, when you throw a stone on the snake, it wakes up, it awakens; but, it is also weakened! You can awaken the snake (Kundalini), you can wake up the snake either by sound, or various other methods, but, every time you try to wake up the snake through fear and greed alone, it will be awakened, but it will also be weakened!

There are so many beautiful methods to wake up, awaken your Kundalini Shakthi. (more…)

What is Kundalini?

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…)

The best way to participate with the life without tiredness or boredom is ‘listening’!

Whether you understand or not, experience or not, believe or not, you are nothing but ‘word’.  Understand. You are nothing but ‘word’.  You are just nothing but a word you create inside you about you, about world, about everything.  The word you create inside you about you, about others, about everything – you are just that, please understand. 

Vivekananda says very beautifully, when he was speaking in the West he says very jovially, “In our country, even if we want to become rich, we don’t go to market and work.  We don’t go to market-place.  We just go and sit under the tree or inside a cave and start chanting some words, and we become rich!”

Please understand, how much ever you logically analyze, it will not fit.  You may think, ‘If I go and sit in the Himalayas, one cave, and just start chanting, chanting, chanting, chanting, will I become rich?’  Please understand, I am not the guy who will spread superstitious things and I don’t speak illogical things.  I am not an atheist to speak superstitious things.  I am not a so-called irrational rationalist.  India is full of them.  India has more number of so-called irrational rationalists than the number of rats.

If you have any love for the Master, it is never yours; it is His!

Listen!

Love OF the Master enters into you, fulfills you, completes you, turns around and flows as love FOR the Master, and liberates you!

Blessed are those who taste love of the Master! Whether it is a benign look, benevolent look, or serious look of a surgeon!

When a surgeon looks at a tumor, remember he looks at the tumor, not you! Unfortunately, when I look at the tumor to terrorize the tumor, you mistake that I am looking at you. 

Understand, decide clearly to hate what the Master hates, to love what the Master loves. In every one of you, there is a part which the Master loves. Love that part, cherish that part, nourish that part, entertain that part, enrich that part; that will enlighten you! In every one of you, there is one part which the Master hates. Hate that, destroy it, complete it; that will be a great liberation for you! (more…)

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…)

Kathopanishad – direct word from the Lord of Death


No Comments

 

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…)

Inner Awakening, Spirituality, Upanishads

An enlightened being can interfere into karma cycle and change as they want.


No Comments

An enlightened being can interfere into that cycle and change as they want because everything is centered on Consciousness. Everything is centered on Consciousness!

You do yoga, you work out, you run, you do all the things required, and then health comes, it’s a karma, bringing result, but suddenly Master puts his hand on your head and health happens is consciousness interfering and creating a result which independent of your nature, space, action and responsibility, that is what is initiation.

Understand in every being, only if a intervention of the consciousness happens, the ball starts rolling in a new direction and the progress towards enlightenment will start happening. You can never, ever reach the ultimate just by flowing through the law of karma. When will you reach? It’s only by the intervention, by the spiritual intervention and conscious intervention the results can change, you can reach enlightenment.  (more…)

Pure Consciousness is all-pervasive, beyond the coming and going, absolute radiant, and self-effulgent, unembodied, boundaryless whole, beyond the subtle body, woundless, muscleless, having no incompletion with the body, beyond the gross body. Consciousness is the ever pure space devoid of the dirt of ignorance, beyond the causal body, and is untouched by the delusion of incompletion.

This description, this description itself needs to be meditated. I wanted that today’s Vākyārtha Sadas should be held on: What is the meaning of each of these words? Pure Consciousness is all-pervasive, then what is that all-pervasive? Beyond Space! Earth is not all-pervasive, water is not all-pervasive; Fire is not all-pervasive; Air is not all-pervasive, even Space is not all-pervasive, then what is it, subtler than the Space which is all-pervasive? Ability to visualize? No! There are so many tons of things which can’t be visualized. There are so many things which can’t even be thought about. Then what is Pure Consciousness? When you contemplate, you will have ‘click’. Please understand, every contemplation on Pure Consciousness will give you a ‘click’, that is Consciousness for you. And if you further contemplate on it, you will have a better, and deeper and subtler understanding and ‘click.’ These clicks getting refined is Spiritual Growth. (more…)

Romance with the life, not because it is your other half, because it is you.

Let us enter into the sixth verse.  

यस्तु सर्वाणि भूतान्यात्मन्यॆवानुपश्यति ।

सर्वभूतॆषु चात्मानं ततॊ न विजुगुप्सतॆ ॥

Yasthu Sarvaani Bhoothaani Aathmanyeva Anupashyathi |

Sarva Bhootheshu Cha Aathmaanam Thatho Na Vijugupsathe ||

 Yes!

One who, indeed, lives by seeing as it is the whole Existence existing in the Consciousness, the Self itself, and the Consciousness existing in the whole Existence, by virtue of not seeing oneself as separate from the Consciousness, does not feel violated or hates anything existing.

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

So the concept you have about you plays a very important, major role, in the way you live, the way you exist.

Understand, I am not searching for my other half, because I am not half!  I am already full!  I am complete!  So, what you experience about you, that decides your attitude about life, understand?  If you feel there is something other than you existing, you may have fear, or, feeling.  If you think the other part will complete you, you will have feeling, romance.  If you have an ounce of romance in the room, everything will be cleared, then fear will start happening; that’s all.

So What!!!

I tell you, if there is a snow storm, God will give you the ability to grow hair just like Polar Bear!  Be very clear, never ever your existence is denied, you are tortured, unless YOU decide to torture yourself.  Neither poverty nor disease or death itself can violate you.

One of the biggest problems we carry before even life attacks us, we conclude and decide life is going to attack us, and commit suicide!  Stop this pattern of constantly feeling violated.  I am telling you, the most stupid pattern a human-being suffers is “feeling violated”, and when you tell them, they get angry towards you.  That is the worst thing!  When I tell them, ‘Arrey, listen!  Even death cannot violate you!  Neither your poverty nor your disease or any depression, nothing can violate you!’, whoever understands that, with whoever’s inner space this statement echoes, you feel connected to it, you just feel, ‘Yes, it seems true’, you are Mahadeva!

I tell you, the one and only basic blood group of Mahadeva…..  I am using a new word: “Mahadeva’s Blood Group”!  If you want to become Mahadeva’s blood group, if you want to join his club of Shiva-gana, just one truth –

“Nothing can violate you!”

– remember that!  (more…)

Shivoham, Spirituality

Mahadeva is here to make you experience HIM


No Comments

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

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

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

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

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

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”!

Please understand, whenever my teachers wanted to teach subtle concepts…..  I should not use the word “teacher”; I should use the word “Masters”.  I wanted to complete and change the word to “Masters”.  Whenever my Masters wanted to teach me the subtle concepts, they will put me on herbal diet.  They will give me the “Arugampull” (அருகம்புல்).  I don’t know the English name for that grass.  It is a unique grass which grows near the water ponds, which is used for worshipping Ganesha.  So, they will give that juice.  Sometimes the Bael juice, Vilwa (Aegle marmelos, commonly known as bael, golden apple, stone apple, wood apple).  Sometimes Bermuda Grass.  The “Arugampulls” English name is “Bermuda Grass”.  They will give me the Bermuda Grass juice and Bael juice.  Sometimes Neem juice.  And, they will cook pineapple fruit in the night, and they will take the juice in the morning and process it with some traditional herbs and give.  This kind of a juice diet they will put me.  Of course, I enjoyed everything other than Neem juice.  HAHAHAHAHA!  They will put me on the juice diet sometimes even for one month!  I used to wonder why the teaching, means learning of Vedantha, should go with this kind of herbal diet.  One day, I asked them also.  Then they said, ‘Alright, you eat whatever you want and come back.’  And, as usual, in those days, the big feast means that “Vadai” and “Paayasam”  (Vadai = a fried snack.  Paayasam = a semi-liquid sweet dish).  That is the traditional feast.  I went and had all the traditional feast and came back.  They tried to explain some of the concepts, truths of Vedantha.  I tell you honestly, I was not able to grasp!  Then they gave me Gingelly Oil (Sesame Oil) and cleaned my stomach, and Haritaki Powder for two days.  After two-three days, again they started teaching me the concepts.  I was just like that able to grasp!  Then I understood the power of that food and that sutra which says, ‘Aahaara Shuddhi….’:  “Based on the purity of food, your intellect gets purified, your memory gets purified, your ability to grasp increases.” (more…)
