Visualization Meditation Technique


No Comments

This technique can be practiced any time. Feel the cosmos as a translucent, ever-living presence. Try to feel the life in everything that is around you. Try to see it. Try to feel it. First, try to feel the life inside your body. Then try to feel the life inside the chair on which you are sitting. See how you are feeling alive inside your skin. In the same way, visualize and feel you are alive inside the chair, inside the cushion. Then visualize you are alive inside the people who are sitting next to you.

Let me give you an example. Let’s say that you put a bamboo stick in a river. Now you can see a part of the river on the left of the bamboo and another part to the right of the bamboo. But does it mean the river has now been divided into two parts? No! If the bamboo is taken away, there is no right side or left side anymore. There is no boundary. It is just one river, that’s all.

Life is just like the river. The bamboo is your ego. Because of your ego, you say ‘I’ and ‘you’. You have two sides – you and the world. You see duality because of that bamboo. If you just take the bamboo of your ego away, there is neither ‘I’ nor ‘you’. It is pure ever-living presence.

Any joy, any ecstasy, any sweet experience is important because it brings you back to that ‘Ever living Presence’!

Unless you experience ordinary love, you will not understand what happens when you are in love. Only when you understand what happens when you are in love with an object will you be able to turn your attention towards the experience. Turning your awareness towards the experience itself will naturally turn yourself towards you. That love will lead you towards your being. Love can lead you to the object or to the subject. It is a bridge and it can take you towards the subject. Whoever used the gate to enter into the subject became enlightened. They liberated themselves and liberated others.

In this whole world there are only two kinds of people. One group of people experiences life once in a while in their life and the other group of people experiences life continuously. Whenever you think you are feeling joy, you are experiencing life in the world for those few moments. That is why you feel so alive. You feel as if everything is beautiful. You have a positive experience with the universe. (more…)

The material in which your waking state and dream state is made, is manifested from your very Self. You can alter, manipulate, extend, reduce, change everything as you want!

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.

Go to the depths of right understanding about pain and pleasure

Today I will start with the 14th verse 2nd chapter of Bhagavad Gita.

maatraa-sparshaastu kounteya sheetoshna-sukha-duhkhadaah |
aagamaa-paayino’nityaah tans-titikshasva bhaaratha II 

‘Oh son of Kunti through the contact of the senses with the objects there results heat and cold which in turn give rise to pleasure and pain and these have a beginning and an end. Oh descendent of Bharata understand discrimination that they are impermanent and ignore them’

Verse after verse Krishna is throwing atomic bombs; the inner atomic bombs. If the samskaras are to be destroyed, the engrams have to be destroyed; these verses are the best inner atomic bombs. See it’s not a moral teaching; understand that is the main thing. And a person like Krishna does not believe in morality, understand that… He does not believe in the so called social moralities. And he has done everything antisocial and illegal. I am telling you everything which is antisocial when he existed illegal when he existed. When he was in the body whatever was antisocial and illegal he has done everything.

A girl asks… a small story… a girl asks a man will you love me after marriage also. The boy says that depends on your husband if he allows me. You are laughing. This is what Krishna has done. Radha is married. Do you know? Radha is married to somebody else. She was already married when these two fellows were having affair. Whatever is considered as immoral, antisocial, illegal, he has done everything. Man like him, if he speaks, understand it is a straight truth; not tainted or painted or coated or mixed with any of the social norms and rules and regulations. (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.

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…)

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…)

Definition of Consciousness by Upanishads

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

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

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

I will read out the translation:

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

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

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

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

We will enter into the Ishavasya Upanishad, third shloka:

असुर्या नाम ते लोका अन्धेन तमसाऽऽवृताः । ताँस्ते प्रेत्याभिगच्छन्ति ये के चात्महनो जनाः ॥

Asurya naamathey lokaa andhena thamasaavruthaah | Thaagumsthey prethyabhigachchanthi ye ke chaathmahano janaah ||

I will expand on how, saying “NO”, impacts you and others, and how, saying “YES”, inspires you and others. 

Listen!  Always, “NO” to life is said out of ignorance.  Always, “NO” to life is said out of ignorance, unconsciously.

  Listen!  Whether it is an individual level, or level of social leader, political leader, or decision-maker, any level…. 

I hear in the newspapers, in the Internet, again and again, the various scams at the level of decision-makers in various countries.  The politicians or the bureaucrats, just for the sake of the bribe they get, they are compromising the health of the common man.  The second quality, not THE very best things, is made available to the common man just because some money they get as bribe.  Whether it is in the field of pharmaceutical drugs, or even in the field of food industry, THE best is not made available to human-beings, common mass; the quality is reduced.  Sometimes even dangerous, risky things are done; sometimes, knowingly, dangerous things are done by paying some bribe to the bureaucrats or politicians or officials.  They also, just for the sake of that money, accept the money and allow this.  These are all “saying NO to life”.  Listen!  But, unfortunately, this stupid fellow who accepts the money, he also does not enjoy.  He stores it, stashes it in some tax haven in some remote island, which he never enjoys till his death.  So, for something which he is never going to enjoy, he is saying “NO” to so many people’s lives, understand?  (more…)

Let us start on the third verse of Ishavasya Upanishad:  

असुर्या नाम ते लोका अन्धेन तमसाऽऽवृताः । ताँस्ते प्रेत्याभिगच्छन्ति ये के चात्महनो जनाः ॥

Asurya naama they lokaa andhena thamasaavruthaah | Thaagumsthey prethyabhigachchanthi ye ke chaathmahano janaah ||  

Listen!  Please listen!  No one is good, no one is bad.  If somebody does the actions which fulfill your ambitions, you call them as “good”.  If somebody does actions which are not fulfilling your ambitions, you call them “bad”.  No one is right, no one is wrong.  No one is good, no one is bad.  Deciding somebody is good or bad, right or wrong, is purely dependent on how much they are supporting your ambition.  So, what Cosmos answers, what is the answer of Cosmos for this issue?  

The Upanishads, please understand, Upanishads are Dharma declaring its authority and authenticity by itself.  No human-being is involved in it.  No human vested interests are involved in it.  No!  Here, no Prophet, no Messenger, no Son of God, not even God, is involved, understand?  Hindu Tradition is so bold, God has only second place!  The Dharma, Upanishads, stand taller than the concept of God, understand?  It stands taller than the concept of God!   (more…)

Is organ donation accepted in Vedic Tradition?


No Comments

I can very clear say, ‘YES!  Organ donation is perfectly accepted, supported, because, it is again “saying YES to life”.’ 

Please understand, only an enlightened body should not be touched, disturbed.  After they leave the body, it should be preserved as it is, through the proper Vedic way of mummifying, the Jeeva Samadhi process as described by Thirumoolar

Thirumoolar is Mahadeva using the body of a farmer who was taking care of his cows, who was bitten by a snake and died.  And all his cows were standing around him and crying.  The story says, there was a divine being going above the sky and saw the scene and decided to enter into that farmer’s body just to remove the sufferings of the cows.  I am telling you from my own authority, who can feel so compassionate for “pashu” (cattle)?  Only the Pashupathi (Lord of all Pashus –  Mahadeva) can feel so compassionate for “pashus”, and only Pashupathi can feel the sufferings of “pashus”.  He was only moving!  And, he only assumed the body of Thirumoolar and came back to life!  And, he describes the whole science beautifully, the Vedic way of mummifying the body, Jeeva Samadhi. 

Only the enlightened beings’ bodies should be properly preserved and Jeeva Samadhi should be done.  Other than that, any person, any normal person can write a Will to donate his organs.  And organ donation is accepted, and it is one of the best ways to say “YES” to life!  “YES” to life!

ताँस्ते प्रेत्याभिगच्छन्ति ये के चात्महनो जनाः

Thaagumsthey prethyabhigachchanthi ye ke chaathmahano janaah

Prethyabhi (प्रेत्याभि) means, “after death”.  Prethyabhi (प्रेत्याभि) – “after death”.  Listen!  Whoever does “Athmahana”, “killing the Athman”, after death they get into the space where negative people live.  It is a simple truth.  Same frequency attracts same frequency.  Birds of same feathers flock together!  That’s all!  It is a simple fact; nothing mystical about it.  And, if you are a negative person, you will not be happy even in satsangh.  You will get only negative people and (gossip) – ‘Pssst! Do you know what he is doing?  Do you know what he is doing?  Do you know what she is doing?’  Only with that kind of talk you will also be comfortable!  ‘Yes!  Wow!  I feel so relieved!  And she is such a nice person and such good friend!’  And, same way, if you are a person aligned to the truth, and FOR life, spirituality, you will feel comfortable only with those kind of friends.  I tell you, this one statement:  ‘Tell about who is your friend, with whom you are hanging out, I will tell about you!’  This is the ultimate sutra!  I think this can even be added into Upanishads!  No, I can tell in our Sangha, based on who is walking with whom, who is hanging out with whom, who is sitting with whom, who is talking with whom, just with that I can tell whether this fellow is going to be evolving, or he is going to be disappearing soon, running away soon.  I can very clearly tell!  Same way, among devotees also, who hangs out with whom, and who takes selfie with whom and puts it in the Facebook, no, with that I know very clearly it is going to pass or fail!

Saying “NO” to life, leads to the lower levels of existence, “Dussangha”, company of the lower level people.

असुर्या नाम ते लोका अन्धेन तमसाऽऽवृताः । ताँस्ते प्रेत्याभिगच्छन्ति ये के चात्महनो जनाः ॥

Asurya naama they lokaa andhena thamasaavruthaah | Thaagumsthey prethyabhigachchanthi ye ke chaathmahano janaah ||

Listen!  “Athmahana”, saying “NO” to life, leads to the lower levels of existence, “Dussangha”, company of the lower level people.  I tell you, that is the hell!  That is the hell! 

Company of the lower level people, because, they will somehow brainwash you to get into their space, and they will make you do what they want you to do.  Finally, they will put you in trouble; then they will escape; because they are very shrewd.  They will escape so that they will go and haunt the other person. One fellow, very popular preacher of suicide theology, he will preach, teach, literally mesmerize, hypnotize everyone to commit suicide, and lot of people have started committing suicide.  Teaching death is very easy.  That is why all death-based concepts spread like a wildfire.  All the death-based religions, concepts, killing yourself and killing others, they spread like a wildfire.  But the life-based religions, concepts, take lot of time.  The best life-based religion in Toto, hundred percent, is Jainism.  The pure, life-based religion, Ahimsa and life, saying “YES” to life!  But how much struggle that religion has to go through to spread!  Actually, there are no followers; literally there are no followers of Jainism.  That is the truth.  Except a handful of monks, a few people!  Because, it is life-based, doesn’t spread that wildly.  But all death-based concepts, they just spread like wildfire!

Upanishads make you live Advaitha by giving you Sacred Knowledge, Sacred Sentiment and Sacred Cognition.

Satchidananda is not delusion or illusion or imagination. Satchidananda, living Satchitananda is possible. That is the first statement I want to give about Living Advaitha.

Second: The understandings you need, understandings you need for the spiritual possibility, understandings you need for the spiritual possibility, listen, the understandings you need for the spiritual possibility is “Jnana”, Sacred Knowledge.

Sacred Sentiments you need to have, you need certain kind of emotional strength when you go through the transformation. When you start living Advaitha, certain emotional strength is required, and the intensity of the passion and emotion can be used to explode into Living Advaitha to take you to the next, next, next levels.

Why the bad people are so rich, good people are so poor. Bad people are so healthy, good people are having disease?


No Comments

Listen! Listen! Whether you are good or bad is going to be decided based on whether your acts are complete with your concept of life. Understand, if your concept of life is all about pleasure and money, and your acts are complete with it, you will have that. That’s all! There is nobody to judge whether money is the ultimate purpose of life. Forget about that! God is not a judge, please understand. He only sees the kind of Completion you are carrying. And, ultimately, he does not even see that. It is an automated mechanism as far as the functioning goes on. So, listen, “if HE wants he can interfere” does not mean HE goes on interfering. No! So, be very clear, God is not sitting and doing some judgement, passing some judgements about you every day – ‘Oh, this fellow, all the time running behind money! Let me punish him!’ No! In course of time, whenever you are deciding constantly For LIFE, you yourself may realize there is something more prior, you should give more priority, more importance, than money. You may evolve. Your idea about life may change. You may reinvent yourself, feeling, ‘No, there is something which is a little more than money. There is something in life which is a little more than money.’ So, you may start reinventing yourself. Then, let your acts be complete to that new idea of you, the way you reinvented you.

So, understand, deciding FOR LIFE, again and again and again, not entertaining laziness, not entertaining boredom, being in the space of constant excitement, being in the state of constant passion, compassion, excitement!

So, understand, the only way to be free from Karmas, the bondage created by the acts, by deeds, the only way is: Decide FOR LIFE! Decide FOR LIFE!

Spirituality

There is no other way by which a man can free himself from the bondage created by the deeds, other than, Deciding For Life!

What is “Karma”?

Karma is nothing but your DECISIONS AGAINST LIFE sitting in you and harassing you, putting you in incompletion. Your DECISIONS AGAINST LIFE which sits in you and puts you in incompletion is “Karma”…..is “Karma”!

Your decision FOR LIFE liberates you from all Karmas, all fears, all negativity.

एवं त्वयि नान्यथेतोऽस्ति न कर्म लिप्यते नरे ॥ 
evaM thvayi naanyaThethoaAsthi na karma lipyathe nare ||

“There is no other way by which a man can free himself from the bondage created by the deeds”.

Listen! How much ever you hear all these things, you need to sit and internalize. That is why, again and again, I insist, come here, experience Inner Awakening, experience Completion; you will see this whole truth – “DECIDING FOR LIFE” – will become your very core cognition! (more…)

The second verse of Ishavasya Upanishad:

कुर्वन्नेवेह कर्माणि जिजीविषेच्छत्ग्ण् समाः | एवं त्वयि नान्यथेतोऽस्ति न कर्म लिप्यते नरे ॥

kurvanneveha karmaaNi jijeeviShechChathgN^ samaaH | evaM thvayi naanyaThethoaAsthi na karma lipyathe nare ||

“One should decide to live in this world for a hundred years, hundreds of years, all the while doing his deeds dispassionately as sanctioned by the scriptures. In this way, the deeds done by you shall not cling to you. There is no other way by which a man can free himself from the bondage created by the deeds.”

Listen! Just in the last few days, one of our devotees, a doctor, she asked me a question: ‘How to practically combine all these, Swamiji? We all know the truth. We understand that everything changes, including what we perceive, and even what we don’t perceive. How can we co-exist in Advaitha with our fellow beings, even if, either one of us, myself or others, do not accept the change as something necessary and good for all of us?’ This was the question.

Actually, the second line of the second verse is the answer. Understand:

एवं त्वयि नान्यथेतोऽस्ति न कर्म लिप्यते नरे ॥ evaM thvayi naanyaThethoaAsthi na karma lipyathe nare ||

When you decide to LIVE, when you decide FOR LIFE based on the understanding “Everything is Consciousness”…..

See, I will just give you a few types of mental setups:

Some people decide AGAINST LIFE. Seeing the SUFFERING IN LIFE and by BECOMING POWERLESS TO FACE LIFE, they decide AGAINST LIFE, I tell you. I can give you an example:

At the age of six, when you are in school, your teacher asks some question – ‘Who is the first Prime Minister of India?’ You put your hands up and jump and shout, ‘Mahatma Gandhi”. The whole class will be laughing at you. And, at that time, you feel naturally, ‘Oh, I have done some something wrong. I should not be putting up my hand and jumping like this. I should keep quiet in a crowd.’ This decision, even after you become forty-seven, when you are sitting in a meeting, you are the CEO, even then, if you have an idea, you won’t speak out directly in the group, you will tell somebody else, and that person will tell the group, and he will get the name. You decide for your whole future based on one incident! Look in.

Thousands of decisions you have done, based on one incident, AGAINST LIFE.

The other day, I was talking to a devotee.

I was telling him, ‘Hey, always remember you are Mahadeva, Shiva, and move the happenings of your life with this understanding.’

He said, ‘No, Swamiji. I just have blood-pressure and sugar (diabetes). I tell myself, “I am Mahadeva! Let this blood-pressure and sugar be healed!” When that doesn’t heal, I lose confidence that I can change the other things.’

Listen!

This blood-pressure and sugar, you would have taken so many thousands of decisions AGAINST LIFE; that is why it came. So, now, when you decide FOR LIFE, decide at least a few times till that whole part starts listening to you.

See, your decisions AGAINST LIFE has become a big chunk in you. You may not need to kill all of them, but you need to create the decision FOR LIFE at least to drive them enough! See, each time, your decision AGAINST LIFE becomes one soldier against you. If there are two million soldiers inside you, each time you create a positive decision – means, “FOR LIFE” – you are creating one soldier in your army. Now you don’t even have to create an army for you to kill the opposite army, but you have to at least create the sound, noise, that they should run away! So, if you have taken one-thousand decisions AGAINST LIFE, at least ten decisions FOR LIFE you have to take. Only then all those one-thousand decisions AGAINST LIFE will be nullified.

Many times you decide AGAINST LIFE just because of a simple incident, for small reasons. So, understand, there is one kind of mental setup which decides AGAINST LIFE because of a few incidents of life. 

Second, there are a set of people, there is a kind of a mental setup, they decide AGAINST LIFE, listen, they decide AGAINST LIFE out of the IGNORANCE that deciding AGAINST LIFE is going to give them peace or liberation. THAT ignorance! People think ‘Oh, instead of living like this let me die’. And you think, if you die, immediately you are released from all this suffering? No! If death is going to be freedom from all these sufferings, I would have started promoting suicide long before! No! It is in no way going to free you. Please understand, if you commit suicide because you are not able to handle your wife, you may have ten wives exactly like this same person with whom you are living, in Hell! From whatever you think you can escape, you will have MORE! And, unfortunately, in Hell you don’t have the choice of committing suicide!

So, out of IGNORANCE, people deciding AGAINST LIFE. 

And, there are some people who want to choose FOR LIFE, decide FOR LIFE, but don’t think that that is what Cosmos wants you to do, don’t sincerely, authentically, stand by it. They say, ‘Alright, now I am deciding FOR LIFE. Let me see how much it goes, how far it goes.’ After two days, one small shaking, immediately they fall back, they collapse! Again they start entertaining the thoughts, ‘I think, instead of this, let me better withdraw.’

Please understand, all withdrawal you did is AGAINST LIFE.

Whether you withdrew from your job thinking that it will be too stressful and responsible, or you withdrew from your love affair thinking that it will not be possible for you to stand and give a fight against the people who are opposing you, or you withdrew from your career or responsibility, or you withdrew from your decision of Sannyas, whatever, whatever withdrawal, WITHDRAWING IS AGAINST LIFE! Listen! Listen! WITHDRAWING IS AGAINST LIFE! See, before you start, spend enough time in analyzing – ‘Is it non-violent? Is it not hurting others?’ All that, do it. Because, anything violent, hurting others, the moment you realize, you should withdraw. That is LIVING ADVAITHA! I am not speaking from that context. Listen! Withdrawing because you became powerless is AGAINST LIFE.

Sometimes you may withdraw to feel more powerful. For example, if you are taking the decision of killing, and withdrawing from it because you feel it is violence, then it is “right withdrawal”. Actually, THIS withdrawal itself is decision FOR LIFE.

So, this is the basic understanding you need to have:

WHATEVER MAKES YOU POWERFUL AND LIVE ADVAITHA, YOU SHOULD DECIDE FOR IT!

Deciding FOR LIFE! Listen! Deciding FOR LIFE! Every time you decide FOR LIFE, immediately it reflects in your being.

I told this devotee who was complaining to me, ‘I tried to cure my blood-pressure and sugar. When that did not change, I got the negative belief. I feel that is not going to work out for me.’,

‘No! Don’t do that!

Understand, the number of times you decided AGAINST LIFE is only sitting in you as disease!

So, you should decide, ‘How many number of times it may take that I have to decide FOR LIFE to drive these diseases out, I AM going to DECIDE, that’s all! This disease HAS to DISAPPEAR! How many times I have to decide FOR LIFE for this to disappear, I don’t care. But I am going to GO ON DECIDING FOR LIFE! Whether these diseases disappear in this birth, in this body, or in the next body I am going to have healthy body, I don’t care about that! But I am going to just STICK to the decision FOR LIFE!’ This is enough. You will see immediately your body transforms!’

“One should decide to live in this world for hundreds of years, all the while doing his deeds dispassionately as sanctioned by the scriptures. In this way, the deeds done by you shall not cling to you. There is no other way by which a man can free himself from the bondage created by the deeds.”

Listen! The first thing the Upanishads declare: DECIDE TO LIVE! I was expanding on this from yesterday. Decision to LIVE! Please listen! It is not as simple as you think; it is really deep, really deep.

Every step of life, don’t give up! Go on deciding to LIVE, deciding to LIVE, deciding to LIVE! In every opportunity, open to live….open to live. (more…)

Everything you are having, and you want to have, you are qualified for all that and much more, because, Life is celebrating itself through you!

Listen! Today I will expand on the last part of this sutra:

ईशावास्यमिदं सर्वं यत्किञ्च जगत्यां जगत् ।

तेन त्यक्तेन भुञ्जीथा मा गृधः कस्यस्विद्धनम् ॥

Eeshaavaasyamidham Sarvam Yathkincha Jagathyaam Jagath |

Thena Thyakthena Bhunjeethaa Maa Gridhah Kasyasviddhanam ||

Whatever is, which is changing and established in changing, is filled by Consciousness, Pure Consciousness.

Listen! Whenever change is happening outside you, inside you, don’t feel life is sadistic, it is punishing you, it is taking away something which you really like or with which you settled down just now.

Ability to understand that every change is a possibility for you to reinvent yourself, is “Renunciation”, understand?

“Raaga” means: “Obsession”, “Attachment”.

“Araaga” means: “Detachment”, “Dead”.

“Viraaga” means: Understanding that the change is established in change, and that is filled with Consciousness. (more…)

ॐ ईशावास्यमिदं सर्वं यत्किञ्च जगत्यां जगत् ।

Om Eeshaavaasyamidham Sarvam Yathkincha Jagathyaam Jagath |

Listen!

“By the Consciousness enveloped must this all be, whatever moving there is in the moving world.”

Listen! Yesterday I was explaining two concepts. Later on I tried to ask my sannyasis, ‘How many of you understood?’ Anyhow…..now I am explaining it again. It means, you understand how many understood! 

Two words I introduced: “Inclusiveness” and “Conclusiveness”.

Listen! Whenever you operate based on logic, you arrive to conclusions, and move from conclusions to more conclusions. Like Maths: Conclusions! And Science: Conclusions! Your logic, thinking! One of the important components of your life moves in the line of conclusions. It doesn’t care about anything else. It doesn’t care about anything else. One of the biggest problems you face in this way of moving with conclusions….. There are many advantages when you are moving with conclusions. If you want to reach Delhi, if you have a conclusive calculation – how many hours it will take, which road you will have to drive, how many kilometres from where you are….. You need conclusive details; only then you can reach Delhi. So, there are many advantages if you move in the language of logic; it is very conclusive. Unfortunately, there are some disadvantages. Even you will feel bored because life itself is not always conclusive, and life itself is not always logically analyzable and quantifiable or reproducible. (more…)

Completion, Spirituality, Upanishads

The cognition of reality: Completion was, Completion is, Completion will be !


No Comments

Please listen! In every level of thinking, let this one truth be the core truth of your being, your core cognition from which you are constantly making decisions. See, for a woman, the core cognition will be, “I am a woman. I am a woman. I need to protect me.” Even by hypnotising, mesmerising, you cannot take away that part. Listen! For a woman, “I am a woman” is the core cognition. For men, please listen, for men, “I am not enough” is the core cognition. For a woman, it will always be “I have to protect me. I am a woman”, that fear is the core cognition. For men, “I am not enough”, the greed will be the core cognition. Replace both with the cognition of Completion. For women – “Hey, I cannot be violated! Anything which can be violated is not me!” For men – “I am enough unto myself! Nothing can be added to me! If anything can be added, it can be taken away!”

The first verse itself:

“Completion is Completion. This is Completion. That is Completion. From Completion this and that happens. Whether this becomes that, or that becomes this, it is only Completion moving into Completion, and Completion becoming Completion.”

Understand? Whether this becomes that, or that becomes this, Completion moves into Completion! Completion moves into Completion!

I tell you, you sit and do the Completion process, technique. Suddenly you see incompletion disappears! Anything which can disappear, how can you say it existed earlier? See, when something is not going to be there tomorrow, how can you say it is there today? This stone may not exist in the same form tomorrow, means, this may be factual, but not real. See, today if you take this stone and throw it on somebody’s head, they will be hurt. I am not denying its power and existence. But it is not real, because, tomorrow it may or may not exist in the same form. If something cannot exist tomorrow, it is not real even today, understand! Your whole life, you are centering it on “factual”. That is why so much of suffering. Centre it on “real”. A person who centers his cognition on “real”, lives a non-serious life, I tell you! Non-serious life is what I call “Celebration”.

நாம் ஆர்க்கும் குடியல்லோம், நமனை அஞ்சோம்,
 ஏமாறோம் இடர்ப்படோம்
Naam aarkum kudiallom, namanai anjom,
 Emaarom idarpadom.

It is a verse from Vaageesha Munivar, a great enlightened being, Thirunaavukkarasar. “We are not frightened even about the so-called death”, understand?

If your every-day thinking, every-day feeling, is more based on fact, the so-called fact, more fear, more greed, more incompletion, more bondage, more suffering, more torture. Food is required for living. But are you spending twenty-four hours on food? If you are spending twenty-four hours on food, that same food will kill you! Same way, facts are required for simple, smooth running of life. But don’t be obsessed with the fact-based life. Don’t judge yourself, gauge yourself every day based on the bank balance you have. Food is required for living. But if you are too obsessed with it, that itself will kill you! Facts are required for the smooth flow of life. But if you are too obsessed with it, that itself will destroy you! Let your life be reality-based. Let your bio-memory and muscle-memory be more and more built on reality-based. Anything which was not there yesterday, cannot be there today. Anything which is not going to be there tomorrow, cannot be there today. Let your cognition be slowly, slowly established.

The word “slowly, slowly”, I am using just to give you encouragement. But if you come near, I will not say ‘slowly, slowly’, but ‘goli, goli’! The “slowly, slowly” word does not mean slowly, slowly; it means really “SPEED”! I am just saying ‘slowly, slowly’, so that you don’t run away; that’s all!

Understand, I am telling you, establish yourself beautifully, establish yourself beautifully in the space of Completion and reality. Let more and more of your bio-memory and muscle-memory become Completion-based thinking, reality-based thinking; you will LIVE! It is not that you will not bother about facts; but you will handle it intelligently! It is not that you won’t eat; but food won’t be able to eat you! Now you are so obsessed with facts, it is not that you are using them, they are using you! If you are smoking one cigarette per day, YOU are smoking the cigarette. But if it is hundred, CIGARETTE IS SMOKING YOU! If you are eating which is necessary for living, YOU are eating. But, if it is more than that, FOOD IS EATING YOU! Same way, facts. It is required for a smooth running. Like, you need to know that two plus two is four (2 + 2 = 4), so that, when you receive your salary, you collect that money exactly and come back, and live your transactions based on those facts. But, that itself is not, cannot be the core of your cognition, understand? See, you have to learn driving to reach your office. But, that itself is not enough for you to run your office. Driving is a basic lesson for you to reach your office. But, to run your office, you need a different cognition. If you think, ‘Oh, driving itself is a big, great thing I learnt’, then be a driver your whole life, that’s all! Not more than that! You will never become a CEO!

Understand, the fact-based cognitions, understandings, calculations, are like learning to drive; but reality-based cognition is learning to LIVE! Learn to LIVE! Please learn to LIVE! That’s all I am saying.

And the grace which comes to you when you learn to live, the courage of enlightenment, the beauty of enlightenment, the grace of enlightenment, even kings will feel jealous of you! Celebrities will feel shy looking at your grace! And kings will feel jealous of the power you are radiating! Businessmen will feel guilty of the way you are living, I am telling you! It is reality-based life, reality-based cognition. No one can torture you. All the fellows who try to torture you will finally torture themselves and disappear! Karma comes back!

Please understand, life functions with clear, straightforward, honest, authentic principles. It is intelligence. No way you can cheat life! No way you can cheat life! Life has no hypocrisy. Life has no place for hypocrisy.

Understand, cognition, your inner thinking, feeling, decision-making, your cognition, if it functions based on reality, it is not that you will forget the facts. You will know the facts and you will be able to play with the facts! People will feel you are doing miracles; but you are not doing miracles, you are just playing with the facts.

Listen! If you stand with the cognition of reality, neither somebody can honour you, add something to you, nor somebody can dishonour you, take away something from you. The person who tries to honour you will be more and more happy. The person who tries to dishonour you will more and more fall into depression and suffer. The person who tries to honour you, gets that same honour back, because, you cannot be honoured! The person who tries to dishonour you, gets back that same dishonour, because, you cannot be dishonoured! Like Mahadeva. He is sitting. You try to pour milk and sandal on him. It will only shower on you! You will only be enjoying that smell! And you try to put something else. Then that will also be on you only! He is there. He can neither be honoured nor be dishonoured.

I tell you, live in the cognition of reality. The cognition of reality: “Completion WAS, Completion IS, Completion WILL BE!” You are established in the space of Completion. Even when you imagine you have incompletion, your incompletions may be based on “facts”, but it is not based on “real”. “Fact” is different, “Real” is different. “Fact” is different, “Real” is different. Your incompletions may be based on “fact”, but can never be based on “real”. The law of “real”, the principle of “real”, the dharma of “real” is:

पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदम् पूर्णात् पूर्णमुदच्यते |
 पूर्णस्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते ||
Poornamadhah Poornamidham Poornaath Poornam Udhachyathey |
 Poornasya Poornamaadhaaya Poornamevaavasishyathey ||

Means: “From the space of Completion only Completion comes out. Even when Completion comes out, Completion remains as Completion. When the Completion goes back, Completion remains as Completion”.

Even when you think they are separate, both remain as Completion. It is ALWAYS Completion in the space of Completion and Completion!

Listen! That is why I am saying, I am telling you…..

In the dream you see many things. You even run if a tiger chases you in the dream. It may be factual for the time being, but it cannot be real. Same way, even in the so-called waking state, when your dream pulls you and pushes you, your perceptions may be factual, but not real.

The perceptions getting established in the space of real, perceptions tuning itself to real, is what I call “Living Advaitha”! “Living Advaitha”!

I tell you, make your perceptions into real! Make your perceptions into real! Make your perceptions into real! Let your cognition be established on reality. The Shanthi Mantra can give you eternal shanthi (eternal peace) just if you make it as your cognition. So, with the decision, decision to make this as your cognition, please chant the Shanthi Mantra along with me:

ॐ पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदम् पूर्णात् पूर्णमुदच्यते |
 पूर्णस्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते ||
 || ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ||
Om Poornamadhah Poornamidham Poornaath Poornam Udhachyathey |
 Poornasya Poornamaadhaaya Poornamevaavasishyathey ||
 || Om Shanthi Shanthi Shanthih ||

First, foremost, and final words given to the universe from the Universe, given to humanity from the Cosmos


No Comments

Listen! This is the first and foremost, and final word! Upanishads are not like Science, every day developing. For example, today a scientist will come and declare something as truth. Everyone will agree. That will be considered as truth. People will make their life’s decisions, align everything based on that truth. In ten years, another scientist will come and prove that whole thing as false and declare something else as truth. Then people will align their lives to that. And then, after five years, somebody else will come and declare that as a lie and prove something else as truth. Understand, if the truth is going to be changing tomorrow, it is not truth even today. Upanishads are not like science which is evolving or changing. It is like a scientist carries a lantern in a thick forest and tells the truths about the forest to the world, ‘There are ten trees, two snakes, and….dark.’ When you walk further, ‘No, no, the forest is not just ten trees and two snakes; it is more than twenty-five trees, and two elephants.’ When you walk further, ‘No, no, no, no, no, it is not even twenty-five trees. Trees, trees, trees! Any side we turn the lantern, it is trees, trees, trees all around, and different types of animals!’ This is what is Science! But, Upanishads are a Rishi sitting and seeing the whole forest in a flash of lightning and describing it! Understand, the lantern descriptions will always change; but the Rishi sitting in the peak of the hill, seeing the whole thing in one flash of lightning, and penning it down, is Upanishads! Understand the difference between these two. Upanishads are the first, foremost, and final word on truth! First, foremost, and final word on truth!

Nothing, nothing like Upanishads declare all the truths in so close a way to the heart, in such a closer way to the heart. Such a beautiful way to live! User-friendly! (more…)

Your Ego is enough to Kill you !


No Comments

First of all, understand, the space you have inside you is like an inner organ.  Just like your kidney, heart, intestine, your physical organs, the space you carry is an inner organ.

I have seen in the villages, one man will do electricity, plumbing, construction; anything you ask, he will do it!  I have seen like that hundred, at least hundred people in the villages.  He will be the naadhaswaram player (naadhaswaram = a South Indian musical wind instrument).  And don’t think like a very cheap, low level quality of music he will do.  He will be the village barber.  I have seen!  Those people only, I have seen, so egoless!  The powerful space they will be holding!  They may not have created wealth using that space, but, I tell you, they have created life for themselves having that space. 

The urban bringing up first destroys your belief, the possible.  The moment the possible is destroyed, every small thing is complicated.  No one wants to look at the other side.  Even for you guys to sit in the order, I have to put one Mahant as in-charge, and, finally, again the mess only!  I can see now.  Even a small thing you are brought up by constantly feeding impossible, impossible, impossible!  Abusing the space you need to carry, understand?

Whether you are handling money in your life – business; or knowledge in your life – learning or teaching; or power in your life, means having somebody under you or being under somebody, either a leader or a follower, that is “handling power”; “handling knowledge” means, either a student or teacher; “handling wealth”, either earning or sharing; whatever you may think you are doing, please listen, whether you handle life, whether you handle wealth, whether you handle power, if you don’t know to create the space and melt down, your ego is enough to kill you!  Your ego is enough to kill you!

Anything which you are handling with your ego, without creating a space, you already internally aborted the possibility.  Ego and Creation of the Space, these two are completely opposite. 

“Ego” means, the frozen….means, the stools which has not come out of your body. 

 “Creating a space” means, the ability to have, ability to visualize and hold anything you want, anything you want to create, your ability to create and hold anything you want. (more…)

Death, Inner Awakening, Q&A

For some people they remember incompletions from previous life?


No Comments

Swamiji: Is possible

IA Participant: Does that mean anything? Is that good? Is that helpful?

Swamiji: I think if you complete them it is good. If you fall into more incompletion because of that memory it is bad. I have seen some people when their past memory is awakened they complete with it and they become such beautiful beings. And I have seen some time, when their past memory is awakened they fall into depression and suffer, suffer, suffer. And they get into depression and split personality and all that. That is wrong.

Passive listening is the most powerful Completion!


No Comments

Listen! Listen! Listen!

Inside you, whenever you associate yourself with the listening part of you and sit with yourself and listen, listen, listen to you, you enter into more and more and more Completion. Especially when you sit with water bodies and try to listen to yourself, you will have that deep listening to yourself, deep listening to yourself.

The pure listening to yourself leads you to more and more and more Completion.

In Sanatana Hindu Dharma, we have one of the very powerful methods called “Ajapa Japa” – you listening to you chanting. In Ajapa Japa, the aggressive repetition of the name is not given that awareness, attention, energy support, but the pure listening, you just listening. Actually, when you deeply listen to you, the sound which happens, that is the “Ishta Mantra” for you. Sometimes it can be “Shiva, Shiva, Shiva”, or “Soham, Humsum, Humsum”. Whatever you listen is your Ishta Mantra. In Ajapa Japa, the chanting or repetition, the aggressive action is not emphasised, but the passive listening is emphasised. The passive listening, please understand, the passive listening leads you to Complete Completion. I should tell you, the passive listening is the most powerful Completion! The passive listening is the most powerful Completion!

Keep this as the basic rule, the Law of Life:

Whenever your energy is put towards talking to you, whenever your energy is put towards talking to you, you are getting into more and more incompletion. How much ever you talk to you, you will be entering into more and more incompletion. But, the more and more you listen to you, you will enter into more and more Completion. Completion process is not “talking to you”, but “listening to you”. Same way, even with others, the more and more you listen, the more and more you put everyone into the space of Completion. The more and more you talk, the more and more you put everyone into the space of incompletion.

From Completion if somebody talks, they put you into the space of Completion, that is only the Master. He articulates Completion, he speaks out of Completion so that you can understand Completion.

Completion teaches about itself to you so that you can achieve Completion. That is what is Satsangh. Completion introducing itself to you and making you achieve Completion is Satsangh. Other than satsangh, any talk is aggression, leads to incompletion; any listening is reception, leads to Completion.

Listen! Listen! Listen to the essence of what I am trying to convey to you now! Whatever you may speak to yourself, whenever the aggression part of you is speaking, it is incompletion and leading you more and more into incompletion, leading you to more and more incompletion. And whenever, whenever you are listening, that listening, whenever you are listening, that listening is Completion, and leads you to more and more Completion. Move towards Completion more and more by listening to you.

Today is the first day of the Inner Awakening. So, the first session is all about LISTENING. That is why I gave an introduction about listening. Of course, this introduction is for the whole world.

Listen! Listen! Listen! More listening, more Completion! More listening, more Completion!
