I will repeat the verse once, read out the translation. Then give you the commentary.
agne naya supathā rāye asmān viśvāni deva vayunāni vidvān |
yuyodhy asmaj juhurāṇam eno bhūyiṣṭhāṁ te nama-uktiṁ vidhema || 18 ||
I will read out the exact translation.
“O Agni, the Fire God! Knower of all our actions, and all that is worth knowing, you must take us along the righteous and auspicious path of completion..”
Please listen, you need to understand this, first line “O Agni, the Fire God! Knower of all our actions and all that is worth knowing” – means: even the modern science proves when your brain knows something that area gets lit up. The knowing action happens when the Fire moves into the certain part of the brain. Please understand, everything may be there outside you, you will not know if the Fire does not move in your brain. If the Fire moves in your brain, only then you will know what is happening. So, Fire is responsible for knowledge, knowing to happen in you.
Fire is responsible for the knowledge to happen in you. I tell you, Fire gets fully awakened by integrity. Nothing, just follow intensely integrity, in twelve months you will have a kind of a Fire in you through which you can know anything you want to know. Anything which comes in front of you, and you want to know it, you will know it. That fire is called ‘dhi’ in Sanskrit we use the word, a single letter ‘dhi’. All the ancient languages the fire is addressed as ‘dhi’. In Sanskrit, in Tamil, in many of the ancient languages. Listen, ‘Dhi’ comes as a gift to you, because of your integrity. Just twelve months decide, I will live in the space of integrity, no question of missing. Its just awareness, awareness practice, nothing else. The ‘dhi’ will be awakened in your brain. That ‘dhi’ will give you the intelligence to know everything you want, anything you want. (more…)
Paramahamsa Nithyananda intercepts into the first part of Shanti Mantra, which is chanted before the Kena Upanishad, in this Nithya Satsang as on 29th June 2016, live from Varanasi. This glorious declaration by the Upanishadic Rishis is the ‘declaration of WILL”” forming the science of WILL. His Holiness reveals that the one core truth that the whole Hindu tradition accepts indisputably, be they from the Shakta, Shaiva, Kaumara, Ganapatya, Saurya, Jain, Buddha traditions or any of the 6 Darshanas of Hinduism is the sacred sound – AUM, the cosmic vibration and the sacredness of ‘cows’. This Shanti Mantra or peace invocation begins with AUM, and makes a declaration of WILL, which fully integrates us and enriches (āpyāyantu) with MATURITY, STRENGTH, ENERGY.
Swamiji enters into the deeper meanings of this verse with the essence of MATURITY.
HE defines: Maturity means being integrated to your WILL.
Maturity does not mean you become handicapped; you become filled with strength and energy. Revealing the sacred moments from his childhood, He narrates how He had tuned Himself to the Sannyasa life at age 6 by declaring to His Guru and integrating his whole system which became matured to the decision of Sannyasa. Shanti Mantra
aum āpyāyantu mamāṇgāni vākprāṇaścakśuḥ śrotram-athobalam-indriyāṇi ca sarvāṇi |
Aum. May my limbs, speech, vital life-energy (prāṇa), eyes, ears, and all the senses be fully matured and be enriched with strength and energy
I’ll continue on the 8th verse of the Isavasya Upanishad:
Saparyaka Chukram Akayam Avranam Asnabeeram Suthamabhabaveedam Kavir Manishi Paribhuh Swayambhur Yatha Tatha YaTho Than Vyadadas Chashwateebya Samabhyaha
Pure Consciousness is all pervasive. Today I just wanted to give a literal meaning, an implicated meaning of this verse.
Pure Consciousness is all pervasive, like space, beyond the coming and going, absolute radiant and self-effulgent, absolute radiant and self-effulgent, unembodied, boundaryless, whole, understand Consciousness is not embodied.
Please listen. Consciousness is not inside your body or outside your body. It is everything that you understand. See if consciousness is inside your body and your body and mind is there, then you can say embodied but here Upanishads are very clearly declaring everything is consciousness. Now how can you say you are embodied consciousness? No, embodied means something other than consciousness should exist but here it is not. Unembodied, boundaryless, whole. It is just boundaryless. How will you imagine? Try, try your best. Boundaryless, like space. Boundaryless Whole. Woundless, muscleless. Means if there is a muscle there is a possibility for wound. It is not restricted to your body. It’s beyond any possibility of wounds, muscles having no incompletion with the body. Means you being consciousness will not destroy the body, no, no incompletions with the body. Beyond the gross body. Consciousness is the ever pure space devoid of the dirt of ignorance beyond the causal body and is untouched by the delusion of incompletion. Consciousness is the all-knowing seer of all, past, present, future. The lord of all minds, Maneeshi, consciousness transcends all beings.
Each line I have to spend at least one year to explain. Consciousness transcends all beings. Please understand anything that is can become not. Anything is, can become not. Here no is and not. Consciousness is isness which is beyond is and not. It is like Nithya is beyond Nithya, Anithya beyond Nithya, Anithya is Nithya. So beyond is and not, is isness. The isness is consciousness. Consciousness is existent by itself swayambhu, swayambhu.
Kavir manishi paribhu swayambhu .
With its independent will and intelligence understand it is not some dead light kind of thing. No, it has independent will and intelligence. Having no cause for its happening, means it is not caused by something. It’s Pure Consciousness 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 there-of.
Understand it is consciousness that is centre of the karma chakra. It is consciousness that is centre of everything of that which is everything.
I will continue to expand on 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 ||
Pure Consciousness is all-pervasive beyond the coming and going, absolute radiant and self-effulgent, un-embodied boundary-less whole, woundless, muscleless having no incompletion with the body; Consciousness is the ever pure space devoid of the dirt of ignorance (beyond causal body), and is untouched by the delusion of incompletion.
Listen. I wanted all of you to take up this as a Vakyartha Sadas – subject and homework. Start working on – unembodied, boundaryless whole, woundless muscleless having no incompletion with the body. Consciousness is ever pure space devoid of dirt of ignorance and is untouched by the delusion of incompletion. Consciousness is the all-knowing seer of all — past, present and future, Consciousness transcends all beings. Consciousness is self-existent by Itself.
Actually only first two lines will take so many days. Once you know the knack, now you can work on all these truths in one or two days. So by today and tomorrow, finish-off all this by doing the homework of — what is the pattern which makes me experience otherwise the Upaniṣad is describing as ‘me.’ (more…)
I will continue to expand on the seventh verse.
यस्मिन् सर्वाणि भूतान्यात्मैवाभूद् विजानतः ।तत्र को मॊहः कः शॊक एकत्वमनुपश्यतः ॥
Yasmin SarvaaNi Bhoothaani Aathmaivaabhoodh Vijaanathaha |Tathra Ko Mohaha Kah Shoka Ekathvam Anupashyathaha ||
“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?”
Constantly engaging yourself in Love Current, all your actions centered on Love Current, how that can make you experience Oneness with everything, everything in Oneness. Oneness with everything, everything in Oneness! This Oneness experience can be gained, experience of Oneness can become eternal in you. Means, not only gaining the experience, you getting established in that experience. When you just soak constantly in that experience, you radiate extraordinary powers.
Every time you break a pattern with the clarity of Oneness, with the cognition of Oneness, you will have one extraordinary power.
Every time you break a pattern, not only you are free from the pattern, you get extraordinary power to you. When you break this eating disorder patterns, not only you are free from the eating disorder patterns, you will also have the power to, ability to manipulate your stomach, your health as you want. The man who is out of the eating disorder patterns…..means….. (more…)
Somebody has put a comment on Facebook: ‘Why in India they didn’t build hospitals, schools? How do you call them as evolved civilization?’ In every village, the largest building of the village is the common utility building where we had school, hospital, cinema theater, art gallery, teaching place, and, ultimately, teaching enlightenment. The place, we call it as “TEMPLE”! Understand? We call that as “TEMPLE”. “ALL”! It is not just a “Mall”; it is “All”! Everything about life is done there, whether storing the grain, teaching principles, or medical-care, everything is done there. And, moreover, our lifestyle was such, we didn’t need so much of hospitalization. From the beginning we were taking care of ourselves. And an important thing, very important thing, when time comes, we were gracefully able to leave, say “bye bye”! Because, we know we will come back! We were not that poor psychologically or consciously that we were holding on to one body. See, when you want to hold on to that one body only you need so much of medical-care. We just know, when we need, we will make the body recover. When it is time, body is too damaged, come on drop it, pick up another one!
We trust metal more than currency, because, for ages we have been a metal civilization, not currency civilization. Understand, currency was pushed upon us very recently. Those days, even currency had a value because of the metal in which the currency is made. Currency itself independently did not have a value. The gold with which the coin is made, that gold had a value, not declaration by the king or the administrator that this is this much valuable. Understand, trusting only Vaishyas for wealth was our civilization. Now our money is by Kshatriyas, politicians, administrators. Please understand, that is why I am saying, your money is not money! Because, the person who is going to transact, that community what they value only can be valuable in society. See, when there is a crisis, what is going to get you your food, that is decided only by Vaishyas, not by Kshatriyas. But, it is unfortunate, the whole lot of confusion. (more…)
This whole revival of deity worship, Sanatana Hindu Dharma, which I am doing, started just with one small Ganesha gifted to me when I was the age of three. If that same Ganesha was gifted to me, or even bigger Ganesha, when I was eighteen, I don’t think this revival would have happened. Just that one Ganesha at the age of three got into my very bio-memory, became experience! That is why I could transmit that experience to tons and tons of people, and this whole Sanatana Dharma is revived!
Just yesterday, one participant, yesterday or day-before-yesterday, few days, one participant in Inner Awakening, when she came and said, ‘Swamiji, It is so sweet to talk to deities and relate with them! I saw them blessing me, relating back to me, responding to me!’,
I said, ‘Wow! I have done my job!’
They are not dead statues; they are living deities! (more…)
There is a big difference between “you don’t rape somebody because of fear of law”, and “you don’t rape somebody just because you don’t want to be violent and you don’t want to enter into somebody’s space”. You don’t want to rape somebody because of Law & Order is “hard power”. You don’t want to rape somebody because you don’t want to enter into somebody’s space, or you don’t want to be violent, or you don’t want to be abusive into somebody’s space is “soft power”.
Order which comes by “soft power” is the permanent eternal order. Understand, order never comes by “hard power”; it comes only by “soft power”.
May be, Law & Order can come by “hard power”, but order can come only by “soft power”. Actually, this will answer a lot of questions about what is secularism, why the concept of secularism evolved only in the western countries, and why the concept of western secularism is not going to suit India. (more…)
The Upanishadic rishis are declaring, Upanishads are declaring….. I should not even use the word “Upanishadic rishis are declaring”. No! “Upanishads are declaring”! Dharma declares its authority by itself is Upanishads. Without the help of any author, or the authority of any author! Author not only brings authenticity, he brings authority also. Here, Dharma does not need authenticity or authority from anyone else. The person who lends authenticity, naturally lends authority also. When he lends authenticity, he has authority. Upanishads don’t need anybody to authenticate it. So, nobody has authority over it. That is why “Apourushya” – “no author”! It is declaring its own grandeur and beauty by its own existence.
When I am trying to expand on Upanishads, even I feel I am not using enough words! It is like it is not adequate. Saraswathi may be eloquent, but not adequate to translate the silence of Mahadeva. Translating the silence of Mahadeva, even Saraswathi feels inadequate! She may be eloquent in front of anything, but inadequate in front of Mahadeva’s silence. Upanishads are Mahadeva’s silence. Translating that into words! It is only by Mahadeva’s grace I can translate, translate, translate his silence into words and deliver, understand?
I was expanding on the concept of “nation” and “desha” (“देश” ). When decision-makers, whether in the field of business or ruling, when decision-makers are out of fear and greed, it is all about producing in mass and sharing with the world. When the decision-makers are caught in fear and greed, then it is all going to be about possessing and controlling. Wealth, handled with incompletion, will lead to possessiveness. Power, handled with incompletion, will become controlling. A powerless man, when he is given power, he will only be controlling. A poor man, when he is given wealth, he will only be possessing. A poor man does not even know how to live with wealth, I am telling you. He will just make a big godown, iron godown, a thick wall iron godown, put everything inside, and lock it, and sleep on it! That’s all! And die! Is this the purpose of wealth? And his whole life he will spend worrying, ‘Will anybody know what I am keeping under my bed? And will anybody steal it?’ A poverty-conscious man, even if he stumbles on wealth, he cannot live it. A poor man, incomplete man, even if he sees wealth, he is not going to enjoy it, live it. He may possess it, but he may not live it! Same way, a powerless man, frightened, fear-based person, even if he is given power, he will only be controlling it, he will not be expanding it. A person established in Completion, in the space of Completion, even if he does not have wealth, he knows how to create and live. A person based on Completion, even with the small powers which are available to him, he knows how to enrich people with power. Enriching people with power!
I am telling you, constantly empower yourself!
Constantly empower yourself!
Constantly empower yourself!
Have power and go on empowering people with power. And, I tell you, in which ever field you empower people, you will only become more and more powerful. Only by producing more musicians, you will become a great musician. Only by producing more dancers, you will become a great dancer! Only by producing more doctors, you will become a great doctor! Only by producing more rich people, you will become a richer person! Only by producing more leaders, you will be a great leader! Only by producing more enlightened beings, you will be an INCARNATION!
