Once love starts flowing, jealousy and possessiveness and all that simply become non-existent!

Jealousy does not allow you to experience your true nature of love and bliss. It arises out of misunderstanding life and yourself. You misunderstand love to be something outside of you that has to be acquired. Not only that, you think love is a quantity that needs to be shared. That is why you are afraid, thinking that if you share your love, your share will be reduced. Love is a quality inside you. It is not a limited quantity. It is an unending happening overflowing from within you. It cannot be blocked by anything or anybody except you because…

The more society tries to suppress your imagination and desires, the more they grow, because society aims at suppressing the symptoms without getting down to the root cause!

At fourteen, the child attains physical maturity. His activities become diversified and the child or teenager doesn’t spend as much time with his parents. The child now begins to collect images from outsiders and media. The media are perfectly aware of this. That is why you will see that all advertisements always have sexual undertones – an attractive woman or man will be modeling for the product, even if the product has nothing to do with them. Almost all motorbike ads show women, but how many women ride motorbikes! Whatever the product may be, you will find a smiling woman…

True Love!

In real life, we always look to express our love towards others in some tangible way. Only if love is demonstrated in tangible form, it is considered to be love nowadays. True love is like a communion. It is a resonance between two beings. It can be felt without any expression. It doesn’t need communication because it is already happening as a communion. If you really love a person, then your very body language will show it. It will be too much to express in words. You will feel that any words are inadequate and will only bring down the love that…

If we turn our attention towards the experience of love itself, we will be liberating the object and we too will be liberated from the object!

Hatred and love are opposite sides of the same coin as long as love is conditional. Love can flip into hatred the moment we feel that our expectations are threatened. In love of this type, it remains love only as long as the conditions remain as expected. The moment the conditions change, the love also changes. Often what we believe as love is actually related to time and space. So long as the distance between lovers is large and the time of contact is minimal, they feel love towards each other. However, once they get closer and spend more time…

You must have at least one relationship in your life that exists for no reason!

Many people confuse lust with love. This is one of the greatest tragedies. The person who thinks lust is love remains confined to the physical plane. He never rises higher than that. He has no idea that there is a higher plane. He remains in the basement of his house. Sex is the basement. It is not the place to live in. You can use it for other purposes, but it can’t be your home. Your home is above it. You must have at least one relationship in your life that exists for no reason. The first thing we need…

Only because people themselves have not experienced love, do they give respect as the rule of acceptable behavior!

The big problem today is that most people don’t love themselves. Society never teaches that it is possible to love ourselves. Understand that unless you love yourself, you cannot possibly love another person. Only when you lose yourself to yourself can you lose yourself to others. We are taught that we can only love even ourselves if we have a reason. If we perform well, we love ourselves. If we fail, we hate ourselves. We apply the same logic to others. We love them only because of something, never without a cause, without a reason. When you don’t love yourself,…

Love is a basic necessity of Life!

Whenever we look at something, the first thing we do is to calculate what we can get from it. It can be a person or an object, that doesn’t matter. Our thoughts start functioning either through fear or through greed to calculate what there is in the situation for us. Our attention is centered on that object or person. It is possible to turn our attention towards our own inner space and ask, ‘What can I contribute?’, ‘What can I add?’, ‘How can I enrich others?’ If the process is only to ask, ‘What can I get out of it?’…

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

The manifest and unmanifest components of Sadashiva is part of you.  The manifest is Sadyojatam, Tatpurusham, Aghoram, Vamadevam, Ishanam. If I put it in your user-friendly language— I should tell you, I am not translating, I am putting in user-friendly language, means roughly equating it. Tatpurusha, Aghora, Vamadeva, Sadyojata, Ishana—these are the five manifest aspects of…

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

Listen! Love OF the Master enters into you, fulfills you, completes you, turns around and flows as love FOR the Master, and liberates you! Blessed are those who taste love of the Master! Whether it is a benign look, benevolent look, or serious look of a surgeon! When a surgeon looks at a tumor, remember he looks at…

Love Is Stepping Stone For Living Advaita

I will continue on the seventh verse of the Ishavasya Upanishad. Please recite along with me. यस्मिन् सर्वाणि भूतान्यात्मैवाभूद् विजानतः । तत्र को मॊहः कः शॊक एकत्वमनुपश्यतः ॥ Yasmin SarvaaNi Bhoothaani Aathmaivaabhoodh Vijaanathaha | Tathra Ko Mohaha Kah Shoka Ekathvam Anupashyathaha || Listen! “In one who has cognized the reality, all existing beings become the very Self. Then what delusion, what sorrow of incompletion can there be for that Seer living in the space of Oneness, Living Advaitha?” Listen! Listen! “All existing beings become the very Self. Then what delusion, what sorrow of incompletion can there be for that Seer living…

Be powerful and creative; you will never be doing mistake!

Today I will expand on Mahadeva’s “Love Current”. First, let me define and make you understand what is “Love Current”, why I am suddenly turning the whole Upanishad towards Love. Listen! I don’t utter a single word which is not required. I am not speaking because I have to speak; I am speaking because I…

If you grasp ‘What is “Unmoving”?’, you will grasp, ‘Who Am I?’, ‘What Am I?’

I will expand on the fourth verse of Ishavasya Upanishad.  Please recite along with me. अनेजदेकं मनसो जवीयो नैनधेवा आप्नुवन्पुर्वमर्षत् | तद्धावतोऽन्यानत्येत तिष्ठत् तस्मिन्नपो मातरिश्वा दधाति || Anejadhekam Manaso Javeeyo Nainadhdheva Aapnuvanpurvamarshath | ThadhDhaavathonyanathyetha Thishttath Thasminnapo Maatharishva dhadhDhaathi ||   Understand, yesterday I was expanding on why these qualities of Consciousness, Eesha, are described.  As…

With this renounced, you may enjoy. Covet not the wealth of anyone at all

Listen! Listen! I am moving to the next line of this Upanishad. Please understand this next line: तेन त्यक्तेन भुञ्जीथा मा गृधः कस्यस्विद्धनम् ॥ Thena Thyakthena Bhunjeethaa Ma Gridhah Kasyasviddhanam || The literal translation is: “With this renounced, you may enjoy. Covet not the wealth of anyone at all.” Looks very simple moralistic instruction. But…

Life is all about evolving your cognition from Perception to Fact, Fact to Truth, Truth to Reality

ईशावास्यमिदं सर्वं यत्किञ्च जगत्यां जगत् । तेन त्यक्तेन भुञ्जीथा मा गृधः कस्यस्विद्धनम् ॥ Eeshaavaasyamidham Sarvam Yathkincha Jagathyaam Jagath | Thena Thyakthena Bhunjeethaa Ma Gridhah Kasyasviddhanam ||  The translation is: “By the Consciousness filled must this all be, Whatever moving thing there is in the ever-moving world. With this renounced, you may enjoy. Covet not the wealth of anyone…

Existence of life doesn’t depend on action but on its Existence itself

I tell you, if you see a person sitting next to you how you will feel, if you see a dog sitting next to you how you will feel, if you see a plant sitting next to you how you will feel, it is based on that, that, that is going to respond to you. Please understand, if you think the person who is sitting next to you is alive, you will react either with love or withdrawal, whatever; you may react in some way. If you see a dog sitting next to you, you will react in some way.…

Technique to flower in your relationships

Now I wanted to give you the meditation process to experientially flower in true love, in relationships. The first step: Look in and pen down – • What you feel about you when you are with that person with whom you are in love, • What you feel about you when you are not with that person with whom you are in relationship, and • How you show you to that person. Pen down all these. • How that person perceives you, and • How you perceive that person. Pen down all these five points independently. And look in, what…

“Loneliness” and “Aloneness”

Just now I used both words in the same meaning. But in order to define both words deeply, in Sanskrit we have a word – “Kaivalya”; means, “aloneness”. “Loneliness” is, you want to have somebody to escape from you and your incompletions; that is “loneliness”. Even if you have the other person or not, you will be lonely. “Aloneness” is, you are so complete, so fulfilled, so powerful, you don’t need anybody to complete you, make you powerful, that is “aloneness”, whether you have the other person or not. Whether you have the other person or not, if you are…
