Death, Living Enlightenment, Spirituality, Truth

When you face death you see that it is nothing but life!


No Comments

Death is a deep relaxation. It is the ultimate ‘letting go’. It is the dropping of the old and starting with the new. When your being recognizes that it cannot achieve what it wants to through this body it decides to move on. This ‘moving on’, this ‘passing over’ is what is called death.

When your brand new house becomes old after the passage of years, you either try to repair it or if that is too inconvenient and frustrating, you decide to sell the house and move into a new one. When you do this, do you feel that you are missing something?

No!

In the same way when you feel that you have not lived your life totally in the way you wanted to, you leave this body to take a new one. You want to restart. Your choice to start all over again is what is called death.

In the same way when you feel that you have not lived your life totally in the way you wanted to, you leave this body to take a new one. You want to restart. Your choice to start all over again is what is called death.

When you die, all that happens is that you rejuvenate your body and your mind. You take a fresh set of memories, a new place, a different set of relatives, a new life. In other words you take up a new birth hoping to fulfill all your incomplete desires. Whatever you left unaccomplished you come down to finish. This choice given to you by god to start all over again is death. (more…)

Death, Living Enlightenment, Spirituality, Technique, Truth

We are not able to face death because we are not able to face the ever-changing nature of life!

             Once, in USA, a young lady asked the great Indian monk Swami Vivekananda, ‘What is life?’ Swami Vivekananda said, ‘Come with me to India. I will teach you.’ She asked, ‘What will you teach me?’   He said, ‘I will teach you how to die.’

The question is about life but the answer is about death! It seems strange! What Swami Vivekananda is saying is that if you know the secret of death, the quality of your life will be different. Your very understanding and attitude towards everything will change.

We can actually use our lives to prepare for death. We do not have to wait for the pain of seeing someone’s death or the shock of being faced with a critical illness to force us to look into the meaning of life.

If you know how to die, you know how to live. Living and leaving are two sides of the same thing.

Death is not a mere incident at the end of your life. It is a profound knowing. If you know how to die, you know how to live. Living and leaving are two sides of the same thing. Your life will be totally different once you understand death.

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…)

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

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

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

The first thought current—“Who am I?”

Second – “What happens after death?”

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

Please understand, no Upanishad is a conclusion.

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

Nachiketa, what a character!


No Comments

 

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

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

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

Always establish yourself by contribution, not by throwing tantrum


No Comments

Anything in my hand let me play with it. That is the only way I will prove my existence. Your existence is proved by your contribution not by your ability to throw tantrum. Please understand the people who are not able to contribute, try to prove their existence by throwing tantrum. I am not talking only about male or female, any side. In general humanity, trying to prove your existence by throwing tantrum is one of the biggest stupid mentality we accumulated, we acquired. Understand, free fall from your authentic identity is hell. Wake up to the reality of the free fall happening in you. You will suddenly know that you have to take up a serious action to stop it, to stop it.

Look in and do not try to establish your identity by throwing tantrum.

Establish your identity by contribution, by enriching. I don’t know how much I can make you guys believe, how much I can… how much you guys will be able to believe. I have seen my own Mother, she is still alive. I have….I am seeing her now for last 37 years. It’s not that she was always only in the high in her life. She was born and brought up to a very decently established family. I can say the…her fa… parents are upper middle class people. I heard in those days that was the most organized and largest wedding happened in that whole village. She had that kind of a background. But, my father was not that rich and he could not maintain even the wealth given to him by my grandparents. But throughout last 37 years, I am seeing her. I have not seen her even once trying to establish her identity by throwing tantrum. I just feel blessed that I am carrying her bio memory. (more…)

Free fall from your Authentic Identity

I will enter into Kathopanishad. I have something very important to share with you all in Kathopanishad today. I was explaining the way the Vajashravas mind was getting degraded and the space he was going through. Please understand, when I explain the degradation happening to Vajashravas, the meaning of the explanation is – please don’t allow that to happen in you. It is not that I have personal anger with Vajashravas, so I am tearing him to pieces. (laughs) No. I am doing literally post-mortem of his mind and his being, because … so that you will not let that happen to you. See, if you are a person of the business nature, don’t ever try to enter into the power game. Because, in power game lot of risks will be taken, which you can’t afford.

You can easily be put in pain if you are a business natured person. Please understand, if you are a business natured person only one of your shop getting attacked is enough, you will move out of politics or you will move out of all the power game.

Always try to catch your nature based on your root-pattern and fulfill that. That will bring tremendous feeling that you lived.

Please understand the feeling that you lived, that fulfillment that you lived, that is the first step for Enlightenment. See, there are extraordinary Paramahamsas, who doesn’t even need to enter into life, who can just get everything out of their system and directly get enlightened. But, 99% of us are not that way. We get into the regular life and go through the ups and downs and root- pattern and everything. Only through this way we are going. So, 99% of us the way we are travelling … please understand, the fulfillment you lived. (more…)

Luxurious lifestyle takes away the strength of your body and mind to reinvent itself with the flow of life

I’ll continue to expand on Kathopanishad. Yesterday I was speaking about the story Vajashravas, King who is feeling insecured and was asked to do a fire ritual from the Vedas, but started doing without understanding the context his son Nachiketa questions. This is the story. I will now try to expand the sacred secrets hidden in this story.

The first thing: king getting into the mental setup of business or bargain, shows the identity crisis happened to him, please understand. The king is the person or at least he is expected to be a person—either lives with powerfulness as a giver, giver, giver or collapses and disappears from us. Please understand, king is not expected to be eternal, but he is expected to be powerful, as long as he is there as king. He can’t afford to get into the mental set up of a Vaishya, businessman.

Same way, a person of knowledge he is not expected to be a giver, nobody expects a person of knowledge to be doing charity, but he is expected of a high standard of Consciousness, highest standard of Consciousness. He is expected to constantly share the spiritual knowledge — live, remember, share the spiritual knowledge. He can’t afford to commit even a small mistake. King in the war can kill even those few innocent people who are not directly involved in the war. He won’t incur a big sin because when there is a war naturally there will be innocent deaths, but a person of knowledge, a Brahman cannot even kill an ant. Even an ant cannot be killed by him. So from each persons the anyakara of society, what society expects, the role they need to fulfill in the society is different. So the identity collapse. Inauthenticity entering into the identity, the identity crisis is what Gita describes as jāti naśta, intermingling of castes, getting impure.

Please understand, because the ancient time the jāti was based on the mental set-up, not just based on your birth. Vishvamitra by jāti is a Kṣatriya [warrior], but he is always remembered as the highest Brahmana. He is respected as Brahmarishi by Vashistha. Understand, each one need to maintain their role.

Varnashrama Dharma is the most abused concept in Hinduism

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

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

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

Blessed are those who experienced utter poverty at least once in life


No Comments

I tell you, poor man is a man who has never seen poverty even once in life, understand.  I am defining who is poor man, poor man is a man who has never seen poverty even once in life.  Because this country has already suffered in poverty, we are not understanding the richness it can cause, please listen, I am not promoting poverty, all I am trying to tell you is even once if you have not realized poverty you will not have the free space in your being to re-invent yourself, that is why in the science of enlightenment at one point you have to break, renounce everything, be in the street empty handed, till that you don’t own anything, nothing can be the reason for your cognition of  “I”, your “I’ has to be just dependent on “I”, the mind cannot be the foundation ground for “I”. 

For that understanding to sink in, at least one year in your life you should have been empty handed, nothing, without anything, no relationship, no friends, no money, nothing. I tell you, that one year will give you the strength to re-invent who you are and I can tell you nine years of my accepted poverty, self-imposed poverty, not imposed on me forcibly.  I may not want to say my Purvashram (pre-ashram) family is rich, but they are decent, they were able to provide food and clothes and shelter for me, that much they are able to do, but when I renounced all of that and family, friends, all the known contacts, everything, that nine years of self-imposed poverty gave me tremendous space to re-invent myself and re-build the new “I” from the space of completion.

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

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

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

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

Listen once more.

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

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

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

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

Only when the education is producing the human beings of higher Consciousness, it can be called as education.

I’ll continue to expand on The KatoUpanishad Santi Mantra, please recite along with m

Aum  Sahanā vavatu | saha nau Gunatthu | saha vīryam karvāvahai| tejasvi nāvadhītamastu mā vidviṣāvahai ||

auṁ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ

Understand, listen , I will read out the meaning, translation and then expand on it.

Aum, May we both together be protected, may we both be nourished and enriched, may we both bring our hands together and work with great strength, energy and enthusiasm. May our study and learning together illuminous both with the sharp absolute light of higher intelligence. So be it. May we both not have enmity or incompletion with each other. Let there be peace, peace, peace. Let there be peace in my inner space, peace in nature, peace in divine forces.

Listen.. The context of the Indian education system, how the education in vedic tradition existed, how it was happening . The other day I was reading letter to British parliament. He writes to British Parliament, I went all around this country, north to south, east to west, I have not found a single person who is lying, who is telling lies, I have not found a single beggar- understand, I have not found a single beggar, I have not found a single person lying, People are so fulfilled. I few want to rule this country, we have to break their back bones. Their strength , their education.. I will read out the exact letter..it is addressed febraury 2 nd, 1835,

I have travelled across the length and breath of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is the thief, such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such high caliber that I do not think that we would ever conquer the country unless we break the very back bone of the nation which is the Spiritual and cultural heritage and therefore I propose that we replace her old ancient education system , or if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, lose their self esteem, their native culture, and they will become what we want them, truly dominated nation.

Understand, understand the strength of Indian education system. This was Macaulay’s address to the British Parliament on 2nd febraury 1835.

Anyhow, understand the value of Indian education system, what kind of human beings and society we produced. Listen.. Only when the education is producing the human beings of higher Consciousness, it can be called as education. Not just some skills or talent, set of skills and talent does not make you  educated, as i said, uneducated are those who are educated only in schools… uneducated are those who are educated only in schools.

Please understand, in any civilization, any culture, any country, any society, if there is peace, there is a lot research and development. Fortunately, we are the civilization naturally protected from all sides. Three sides ocean, one side large hills , mountains which can never be crossed with ordinary efforts of human beings. This natural protection gave a tremendous peace to this Ganges-Saraswathi civilization. Civilization between Saraswathi and Ganga,  that is why war was never a mainstream activity of Ganges Saraswathi civilization.

In any civilization, whatever they feel as their greatest achievement, mainstream life, lifestyle, they build monument for that purpose. If they think, waging war and killing people is their mainstream lifestyle and purpose, they built monuments of warriors, people who are , who lost their lives in the war, or people who won the wars, monuments are built, war memorials are built, monuments of the victorious kings are built. If they think whatever human beings think is their greatest achievement, essence of their society, they build monuments for it, so that the future will remember them through those monuments.

Please understand, that is why I am saying, the Ganges-Saraswathi civilization, the Indus valley civilization, the Hindu civilization, waging war was never a mainstream activity for us. It was always only for defense and self protection. You may ask, how, how I am coming to this conclusion. Look at the monuments we made through out the country, not even 2 percent, war memorial or the kings emerges victorious after war. 95 percent of the monuments we built are monuments for education, 3 percent is for great educators and teachers. Understand, all our Temples are not monuments of some war victory, it’s a place for education in memory of the great teachers and educators, it’s a Samadhi of Siddha’s, not monument f great kings, Only 2 percent is monument of great victorious kings or war memorials.98 percent is for education and  great educators , teachers. Understand all the temples are built for siddhas, great educators. Based on the monuments, you can understand, what was highly respected in that civilization, in that society.

I was also reading the Agama shastras , the science of building villages and cities, everything was centered on education, knowledge and teacher . That was really surprising….warriors were only a small part of a society, given a very small place of security job, that’s all, mostly their job is security job, or attending, serving during any natural calamity. That was their regular routine. I am not saying we never waged wars..we were , waged wars, no doubts,  that was not our mainstream life style activity. There was so much peace, so much of research, development, so much of knowledge , knowledge creation and spreading, so much exploration of space under the water, under the earth, into the fire, so much has been done, so much knowledge was available, even whatever is left out unimaginable, unmatched humanity may take at least take 5000 years to catch up with this vedic knowledge. To catch up with our education system, they may even take 10000 years.

Understand the statements that I am making are not out of ego, arrogance, self pride or anything. I am simply stating the facts,., simply stating the facts ,simple truths straight away. We put so much of attention on Arjuna becoming a greatest warrior and emerging out of Gurukul, but we forget , from the same Gurukul, Sahadeva emerges as the greatest astrologer in this war. A whole department of astrology was functioning in that same Gurukul. But, we were so glamoured by Arjuna emerging as the greatest Archer, Bheema emerging as the greatest wrestler, we forgot Sahadeva emerging as the greatest astrologer. Understand even to be a greatest archer, you need the knowledge from multiple other disciplines. If you see the monumets of a country, what we bulit, what we revered, what we respect, what we want to be, what we want to remember and  how we want to be remembered, what we want to remember, how we want to be remembered by our next generation.  All these aspirations were centered on education…..All these aspirations were centered on education. So much of knowledge on physical health, mental health, Consciousness, powers of consciousness,, so much was available. Our education system, our Gurukul system,   making human beings, should again become the mainstream education system…. Should again become the mainstream education system. Please Listen, When I read this Santi Mantra, I can see very clearly, the context of the Indian education system which was always towards higher and higher intelligence.

Sahanā vavatu | saha nau Gunatthu | saha vīryam karvāvahai

tejasvi nāvadhītamastu mā vidviṣāvahai || auṁ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ

May we both together be protected, may we both be nourished and enriched, may we both bring our hands together and work with great strength, energy and enthusiasm. May our study and learning together illuminous both with the sharp absolute of light of higher intelligence. So be it. May we both not have enmity or incompletion with each other. Let there be peace, peace, peace.

When ever I read this verse, again I fall in love with the education system, our Gurukul system. What a powerful beginning, where Teacher and Students together say, seethe context, no where Guru is claiming, I am going to teach you, you are the Student, nowhere , He is demanding obedience from the disciple, no where disciple is made to feel that he is new. Actually, there is no psychological ragging here. The ragging starts from the Teachers. Please understand, in any educational system, in any educational institution, ragging starts from Teachers. It’s the teacher ‘s who feel insecure about the new fresh vital energy coming inside, they want to make the statement, Ai.. you are there..(down) We are here..(up).  It is they, the way they behave, makes the senior students set a trend. Ragging starts from so called Professors, Teachers, Principals in any educational institution. They just want to illogically bulldoze and make a statement, be there…(down). Not even one aorta of ragging here, he says very beautifully, may our study and learning together. Because our masters know these Apoushyas, Vedas has multiple layers of meaning. Even if the Teacher is teaching Vedas for 50 years, 51st year when he opens the manuscripts again, when he opens the palm leaves again and reads the same line, he may click with a new meaning. Because he knows it is from Aakashic records. So he is teaching from that humbleness, May our study and learning together illuminous both , please understand, illuminous both with the sharp absolute light of higher intelligence, sharp absolute light of higher intelligence. I think the Teacher should have this pace, this context.

The Teacher should have this context, this space. Each one of this line introduces our education system and the context on which our system was evolved. Next statement, May we both not have enmity or incompletion with each other, because they are going to live together, understand, Guru and disciple are going to live together, so not having incompletion is very important. See , if you don’t live together, like this modern day, non involving narrative education system, where there is no living together, there is no involvement with each other, then the possibility of incompletion itself is not there. But when you live together, not to have incompletion is very important. Teacher can always establish his superiority and let disciple not have incompletion. But he is not doing it, this is, it’s very clear, please understand, by the authority you can never make somebody without Completion.

Only by your Authenticity you can make others Complete, never by authority, it is by Authenticity. Whether it take times, months, years, it’s only by the other person realizing the Teachers Authenticity, Guru’s Authenticity, he becomes Complete. Completion cannot be achieved by authority ,it’s only by Authenticity.

Let me enter into Kathopanisad, the Shanti Mantra. Please recite the Shanti Mantra along with me.

au saha nāvavatu | saha nau bhunaktu | saha vīryam karvāvahai |
tejasvi nāvadhītamastu mā vidviāvahai ||
auśāntiśāntiśānti ||

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

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

Please recite, the Shanti Mantra of Katha Upanishad along with me:

auṁ saha nāvavatu | saha nau bhunaktu | saha vīryam karvāvahai |
tejasvi nāvadhītamastu mā vidviṣāvahai ||
auṁ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ ||

This verse explains the context of Gurukul, listen. This verse explains the context of Gurukul. Gurukul means, the literal meaning of the Gurukul is, Guru’s home. Please understand. In the Hindu tradition family is the nucleus, you demolish any thousands of number of temples. You burn any thousands of numbers of scriptures, as long as the family system is alive, we will stand back. We will come back. Because, Sanatana Hindu Dharma values are transmitted, transferred through the family tradition. The gotra (family lineage)…I wanted to tell this to all you guys, as much as possible please live as large joined families. Either become a Sannyasi, be in the Gurukul, which is large joined family, of Gurukul. Or live as much as possible – it depends on your heart, how many people your heart can accommodate without judging. How many people your heart can take up without judging. (more…)

I will continue to expand on the Shanti Mantra of Kathopanishad. Please recite along with me.

auṁ saha nāvavatu | saha nau bhunaktu | saha vīryam karvāvahai |
tejasvi nāvadhītamastu mā vidviṣāvahai ||
auṁ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ ||

Please listen, and repeat once more:

auṁ saha nāvavatu | saha nau bhunaktu | saha vīryam karvāvahai |
tejasvi nāvadhītamastu mā vidviṣāvahai ||
auṁ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ ||

This Shanti Mantra introduces the context of Vedic education system. Education, is nothing but awakening your possibility into reality. Please listen, making your possibility into reality is education. I am defining Education. Awakening your possibility into reality, making your possibility into reality is education. All education should be making your possibility into reality. The Indian way of education is not non-involvement narrative style where the student and the teacher don’t get involved more than the few hours of narration where the teacher narrates – 2 + 2 = 4; you have to live boldly and courageously. After 4:30, school is over, this fellow will be shivering like a rat, so students don’t get to see the example of teachers. (more…)

Yes, I am back to Kathopanishad. Today I am a little balanced to speak about anything else. But whenever I enter into Varanasi, at least 24 hours, I am so full of Varanasi. Even if I start speaking about something else I will be back to Varanasi. You see I can say, this city is a wonder. Made by man, supported by God. It’s a man-made wonder supported by God. All the Gods have supported this great wonder, Varanasi. It is older than any legends, because legends are written here. Legends were created here. This is the breeding ground for the great legends. Understand, whether it is Guru of Rama or Guru of Krishna; studied in this city. Whether it is Guru of Rama or Guru of Krishna, studied in this city.

All Gurukuls were head-quartered in this city. Naimisharanya or Sarvajnapeetha, or Takshashila; much later, Nalanda. All of them, were head-quartered here, in Varanasi. Because all those Masters who established those universities, all of them studied here. Directly at the feet of Mahadeva. Sapta Rishis, Sanakadi Rishis, Devi herself studied at the feet of Mahadeva, here in this sacred city, Varanasi. So, whenever I enter, my Being responds to this city. The city responding to my presence is so overwhelming. At least 24 hours I can’t speak about anything else. And this time it is too much because the day 1 the initiation is successful. The day 1 the initiation is successful. Because kids have already started reading. The day one, first day initiation. Please understand. The kids who came for Inner Awakening yesterday first time. Getting initiated, many of them have started blind fold reading. The third eye awakening has started happening. Without any fraud, cheating, or without any looking through the hole. So beautiful. The very day, day 1, the initiation has started becoming reality. (more…)

The urge to Re-invent yourself should become urgent

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

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

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

Whenever you see there is no possibility for new flow of energy in your life, then comes boredom, frustration, violence.


No Comments

Understand, boredom is one of the biggest crimes done to individual consciousness. Boredom is one of the biggest crimes done to individuals by the collective society. And the worst crime is giving foolish solutions for the foolishly created boredom, the so-called entertainment industry. Understand, instead of solving the problem in the root. For example, you are having a nightmare that 10 tigers are chasing you, 11 lions are attacking you, the anaconda is running behind you. In the dream, you are running. In the bed itself, you are screaming, “Oh save me, save me, tiger is coming. Anaconda is coming….” If somebody brings and gives you AK47-59, and tell you, “Come on, my dear friend, how can you be suffering? Save yourself.” You don’t know whether he will shoot himself or you.

The problem needs to be handled in a simple way. Just tap him, “Aye. Wake up.” But instead, if you try to solve the issue by giving AK47-59, “Wow. I am giving 59 in the right hand, and 47 in the left hand…” and giving even 2, 3 bombs so that he can throw that and run away from all the animals chasing you. How stupid you are! That is exactly what society is doing to you. Instead of making you understand the source of the boredom, and go beyond it, it is providing entertainment industry. Don’t, don’t live in a country where the entertainment industry is too big. Listen, don’t live in a village, where there is no temple. Don’t live in a place where there is too much of entertainment. If there is too much of entertainment, be very clear, those place, people are too violent to divert their attention. Entertainment industries are flourishing. (more…)

Why is work boring ?

Listen, all the system which make you a number, tries to put you just into the ‘law of life’, Dharma, is making you forget the flow of life, Yama. 

Understand, I am revealing the definitions of Yama – flow of life, Dharma – law of life. The sacred secrets related to both directly from Akashic records.

Why is office boring. Why is work boring? Why is work tiring? Because you wrongly cognize and you are made to cognize, it is all same. It is law of life. No! Never this throne is same for Me second day. Understand, everyday it is new for Me. Everyday it is new for Me. Everyday you are new for Me. Everyday, I am new for Me. Everyday, what I am uttering is new for Me.

Celebration comes from Yama, understanding the flow of life; not just by Dharma.

Understanding law of life is great, it makes thing easy. Like I gave the example: if there is fire, you have to run out of this hall. If there is earthquake, you have to move out of this hall. This is the Dharma, law of life. It is good, as far as things of matter is concerned, dealing with the matter is concerned. But it is unfortunate, unconsciousness of the people and society makes you think and feel—even your life is law of life, Dharma, no! It is flow of life, Yama.

Look in, where all you froze yourself. Break all those frozen part of you, that is what staring at Death. (more…)

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

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

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

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

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


No Comments

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

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

Look into the eyes of Death before He stares at you

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

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

My mission is removing all the prepositions and suppositions added, got loaded on Vedic tradition and bring the naked Truth as it is.

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

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

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