Wow, how can I describe Varanasi!

Varanasi, Anandavana, the place of Annapurni. Only yesterday I realised the power of Annapurni’s energy field. Please understand, it is not only that she gives food, the moment you enter this space your metabolism just goes up. That is the power of the Annapurna’s energy field. Just yesterday night, I discovered it, why I feel…

The obstacles you will face in seeking

Let us enter into today’s Satsang. I will continue to expand on 9th verse of the Isavasya Upanishad. Please recite along with Me: andhaṁ tamaḥ praviśanti ye’avidyām upāsate | tato bhūya iva te tamo yau vidyāyāṁ ratāḥ || 9 || Those who worship avidyā, ignorance that veils the true knowledge of Truth, Consciousness, enter into blinding darkness characterized by the absence of perception; but into greater darkness of ignorance than that, enter they who, considering themselves as scholarly and learned, are engaged in vidyā, the incomplete knowledge acquired for vested interests, characterized by the impure perception of Truth and Consciousness.…

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!…

Enriching is the amazing, ultimate, secure, showering lifestyle!

Please understand, I am defining this word “coveting”. “Kasyasvid” (कस्यस्विद्) I am defining. Anything which you take from others, which is not enriching them, is “coveting”. Anything, by enriching them, they offer, is “offering”. Understand, the whole life, all transactions, either covet, coveting or offering. Whether it is a simple smile, or billion dollar, simple…

Everything is a gas balloon in your life

Every form you carry in your life, everything which is most valuable or most dangerous in your life, most valuable or most dangerous in your life, gets alive, becomes alive, gets life only based on the incompletions you infuse into it. Understand, everything is gas balloon in your life. Whether it is the most important form or the most dangerous form, it’s a gas balloon which balloon you are going to inflate it by infusing your incompletion. Please understand, the most dangerous thing you think in your life, whether it is poverty, or death, or disease, or accident, or losing…

Presented bare, truth hurts

A lady came to me complaining that she is hurt by even small criticisms coming from others. She said she was very sensitive. I asked her to stop using that word. I said, ‘You are not sensitive. A really sensitive person will be porous; she will allow the words to pass through her. Only arrogant people get hurt. If you are hurt, please understand that you are arrogant. You are strong like a stone, which is why words come and hit you.’ A sensitive person would have allowed the words pass through her; she will never suffer. Even if someone…

Choicelessness is bliss

Choicelessness is bliss. If you choose it, bliss will not happen because you have made a choice and thereby have eliminated it as a possibility. When you are choiceless, when you are completely relaxed, bliss simply happens in you. When you are concerned about bliss, your very concern will ensure that you will not experience it.  The moment you try to retain an unclutched experience you clutch yourself. 

When you are no…

When you are not transferring the load or stress of one thought to another thought and not carrying the load you are unclutched. Unclutching is not about not connecting thoughts, it is not carrying load from one thought to another thought. When you are unclutching, naturally you experience peace.

Tapas is being intensely passionate with deep patience. It is being playfully sincere.

Once a man went to visit a famous sculptor. He saw the sculptor sitting silently in front of a big marble block, smiling admiringly at it. When he saw the visitor, he turned to him and said “Is it not she beautiful ?” “Who?” asked the bewildered visitor. “This woman, hiding in the marble block” “Where I don’t see any woman” “You will, just as soon as I finish removing all the unnecessary stuff around her” , sculptor smiled. On the spiritual path, this process of removing all the unnecessary stuff is Tapas.Tapas is the intense joyful effort that transforms…

I don’t have any visions or darshans in my spiritual path…..I feel depressed!

There are some people who to go to Bengaluru to Delhi with open window. They see so many visions, scenes and all kinds of visions and darshans and reach Delhi. There are some people whose windows are closed, they also reach Delhi. There is one danger if your window is open, you may see some middle station and think that Delhi has come and get down. But the journey itself will be very juicy. For people whose window is closed, you will not get anywhere in the middle, you will reach Delhi for sure, but journey itself will be little…

Whatever is happening is auspicious

Look into the whole journey of your life. What is after all the whole journey, somehow you have the body and mind, you need to reach the space where you can be yourself, having everything, without the need of body and mind. So every experience which is added to you is pushing you to go beyond body and mind. Even what you think as suffering is nothing but teaching you that you will be better-of without body and mind. So constantly this truth is being  taught to you. So, in that way if you see, everything, everything is adding, adding,…

Master

IMG_4369_0

When you understand, Master is not a mass you will not miss. As long as you think He is a mass, you will miss.

If somebody is a mass, he cannot be a Master; If somebody is a Master, HE is not just mass. Who has mastered the mass is a Master.

Intensity is deep passion with profound patience

Different techniques, different methods, different deities, different paths, then what is the point that decides a person’s enlightenment ?  Intensity is the one which decides the person’s enlightenment- the higher experience. With Intensity whatever you do will be meditation, without intensity even if you meditate, it will be just a ritual. Whenever I teach meditation to a group of 100 people, I learn hundred versions of that same meditation. The success depends on the person, not on what he is doing, but what he is. It depends on the intensity which he carries. Patanjali says ‘Based on the intensity, the success-…

When you are living aroun…

When you are living around the master even the mosquito bites you after taking permission from Him about the time, the intensity of the bite and the place where you are needed to be bitten

If you are living with the master and still He is not driving you crazy either He is not enlightened or you are not living with Him.

As long as you think you are a separate entity other than higher reality, He will be driving you crazy. Constantly shaking the very roots on which you build your foundation. But fortunately if you identify with Him or with Higher reality, this is the most fortunate thing which can happen in the planet earth to you because without any effort the ultimate will just happen in you.  The ultimate will just happen in you without any effort, nothing needs to be done just hanging around Him.  But you will see His simple movements, His simple words, His just look will be…

Swamiji, do you have thoughts ?

Please listen, if your inner space is 10 acre, all 10 acre is filled with thoughts. In my inner space I have 10 million acres and some 100 acres are filled with thoughts – Negligible, but much more than you. For the total inner space I have, the thought-filled inner space is negligible, that is why it is called ‘no mind’. But, if you see the number of thoughts in the actual- factual space, it is much more than yours. That is why I say, I have a mind which you don’t understand. But, it doesn’t mean that there are…

The one who is ignorant, who doesn’t have trust and who is a skeptic, perish.

If you doubt my ability, I will always show you that I am able, I can. If you doubt my stability, I will always show you with my compassion, I,  constantly in a very stable way waiting for you. If you doubt my availability, I will prove that I am always available for you.  But if you doubt My very purpose of the mission, very purpose of My Existence, My vision statement, nothing can be done. Let me define Me and My purpose –  “I am an incarnation in the planet earth to do the job of radiating and sharing enlightenment, the…

samsayatma vinasyati

“ajnas casraddadhanas ca samsayatma vinasyati| nayam loko ‘sti na paro na sukham samsayatmanah||” Translation – “The one who is ignorant who doesn’t have trust and who is a skeptic perish. They do not have this ordinary life or the higher life. There is no sense of well being for the skeptic.” It is like a blow on the brain not just mind. Sometime blow on the mind you don’t catch it that strongly. so blow on the brain is the only way. Beautiful word ‘samsayatma vinasyati’. It is a shock, powerful shock Bhagavan gives. I know for sure many of…

You are a spiritual being having human experience

As long as you think you are the body, you can’t escape from the pleasures of the physical world. When you think you are mature, naturally the small attachments like attachment to toys disappear. Till you are mature, you may try to renounce  physically but you will be thinking about it. Same way, till you experience the consciousness you can’t renounce the physical pleasures, even if you renounce you will be mentally thinking about it.The one who doesn’t know the difference between matter and consciousness, won’t be able to practice restraint. You are not human being having spiritual experience. You…

Why do I insist on being around the master ?

These words which I utter you can learn from this blog or from my audio/video discourses or dvd. But when you sit in front of the master you will see the honesty which radiates in My eyes. The truth, which expresses in My body language will catch you. You will feel that ‘click’, that connection – yes, he is talking the truth. Even if you want to suspect it, suddenly you will see your logic has no power anymore over you. Beyond your logic simply these words are going inside you. Your logic is crying….i am dying, i am dying,…

Uncompromising compassion

I had such a non-compassionate mentors and masters for me. I am really lucky. As far as techniques and spiritual knowledge is concerned they are so compassionate. But they will never, ever give me any support for my human weakness. When I say human weakness, its like – “tomorrow we can do the practice, its Ok. We can do the practices later on. I don’t want to do meditation.”, this laziness. They never bent for this, they just stood strong. One side compassion, the other side completely cruel. Because of them, again and again and again standing up has become very easy.
