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!


No Comments

             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.

Unclutch from creating, maintaining, destroying any thought and realize you are the Supreme Self, Parabrahma!


No Comments

Ashtavakra says, You who have been bitten by the great black serpent of egoism ‘I am the doer’! Drink the nectar of the faith, ‘I am not the doer’ and be happy. Ashtavakra gives this technique to the king and seeker, Janaka.

Please understand that simply thinking that ‘I am not the doer’ or having faith that ‘I am not the doer’ will not liberate you directly. This technique by itself will not liberate you. It will just make you tired!  You are not able to remember that you are not the doer continuously without a break. The moment you understand that you are not able to remember ‘I am not the doer’ all the time, you will be completely frustrated and you will just drop the mind. The moment you drop the mind, the truth that you are not the doer will simply become reality! That is the technique suggested here.

Unclutching is like a self-purifying method.

This is a very simple understanding of unclutching. All you need to do is remember to unclutch whenever you start giving meaning to old thoughts or whenever you connect with old thoughts and allow them to bother you.
Do not create, maintain or destroy any thought. If you don’t do any of these three things, you are the Supreme Self, Parabrahma!

Unclutching is like a self-purifying method. For any technique to be self-purifying and liberating, the moment you become subtle, the technique should also become subtle, by itself. Unclutching is one such technique. The technique that does not become subtle by itself stays in the gross level. If it is not able to kill itself, if the technique is not able to commit suicide, it will kill you!

The beauty with the technique of unclutching is that it will become subtler and subtler by itself as you become subtler. Finally, it will dissolve.

Unclutching through the breath meditation


No Comments

Let us see how unclutching is related to what happens every moment in your body – breathing!
Between the incoming breath and the outgoing breath is a neutral space. Your identity exists in the incoming and outgoing breath spaces. Constantly you can connect and see you are connected when you are aware of your breath. But in the gap of the neutral space your identity does not exist. You don’t connect the gaps, so you jump over this gap.

You think that the breathing space or breathing time is more than the neutral space. This is because you have more thoughts when breathing. Because you give more emphasis to your identity you think that the time of the incoming breath and outgoing breath is more than the time of neutral space. In reality it is not. It is just a psychological game.

Unclutch!, and let the automatic intelligence of Existence run your life beautifully for you and let your actions be automatically propelled by the energy of Existence!

The moment you hear you are unclutched, the first fear that arises in you is, connecting my thoughts, who will pay my bills? I could lose all my wealth. I could forget where I keep all my money. I may not be able to live successfully in society. How will I do my job? How will I take care of my things? Won’t I not just lie down in my bed without doing anything? Why would I want to go to my office?’ The question has nothing to do with unclutching.

When you are in that space of irresponsibility or defeatist attitude, mentally you are very active but physically you are tired. When you are unclutched, physically you are active and alive, but mentally you are silent.

If you have such questions, just unclutch and sleep for ten days. There’s nothing wrong with that. Have a vacation for ten days. Decide, ‘I am going to unclutch from both the identities.’ How many days do you think you can sleep? How many days do you think the cessation of activity can continue in you? Only until the tamas in you is exhausted. After that you will automatically start doing something.

So,even if you feel it is a lack of responsibility or defeatist behavior, be unclutched for a few days. You will then understand and experience that when you are unclutched you will not have a lazy or passive attitude. Mentally you will be silent, but physically you will be active and alive. (more…)

What is it that is not allowing you to see that you are already unclutched, already complete and bubbling with life ?

Just understand this one simple truth. In order for an animal to breathe, it does not need ego, it does not need an identity or any character. But as a human being, you are afraid that if you drop your identity you will not be able to use your body. You fear that something bad will happen to it.

You are afraid that if you drop your identity, your body will not function smoothly. You have an idea about yourself as ‘I am somebody’s father, I am somebody’s brother, I am somebody’s son.’ This idea that you have, this identity that you carry, this ego that you carry, is not necessary for the smooth functioning of your body and mind. Of course it is very difficult to believe this.

Do you need to think about breathing, making your heart beat, digesting food, or eliminating wastes from your body?

No!

This very fact should help you to realize that your ego is not needed for you to survive. There is something beyond the ego that is keeping you alive and functioning. If your existence depended on your ego what a catastrophe that would be! We would not be able to manage it! We are so much more than our ego, but that too is hard to believe. (more…)

Do not try to retain the feeling of bliss that comes with unclutching!

Adi Shankara sings beautifully in the verses Bhaja Govindam:

Within the potter’s wheel’s rotation, The pivot stands still, amidst constant motion, So too a man of perfection is poised, although engaged in action.

When you understand that you are unclutched, suddenly you realize you are like the pivot of the potter’s wheel, unmoving and untouched by the kind of pot being made, the kind of experiences being felt. Understand that you are not the movie being played. You are just the screen on which the movie is projected. The screen is never touched by the play of emotions that appears on it!

The boy sage Ashtavakra tells King Janaka, Verily you are ever free. You are the one seer of all and really ever free. Verily this alone is your bondage, that you see the seer as other than such.When the scene affects the seer, the problem of bondage starts. Your very being is pure. But the moment you start thinking of yourself as someone other than the seer, the problem starts. This is the only bondage that you have. There is no other bondage. (more…)

How to come out of guilt, fatigue, allergies and phobias ?


No Comments

The ayurvedic science says that we get stomach problems like constipation, etc., only if we constantly hold on to our body. If we can just relax and witness, if we start understanding that we are not the body, we will never have stomach problems. I tell you from my experience with millions of people that I have met and worked with, if you have stomach problems, try this technique for just two or three days. Constantly think that you are not the body. I assure you, you will be liberated from any stomach problem. Your stomach will simply be healed.

If you have stomach problems like ulcer, constipation, irritation, or any problem related to the stomach, this technique will help you. For two or three days, just continuously think, ‘I am not the body,’ ‘I am not the body.’ Just relax and allow the body to function. I tell you, within two or three days you will be healed.

All your allergies and your phobias are nothing but the connection of independent thoughts. The only thing needed is the courage to be unclutched. Please be very clear, I have healed at least one thousand people with allergies in the last three years.

When I was giving discourses in Hyderabad, India, a man complained about twenty five years of allergies to lentils. Even if he ate a spoonful of cooked lentils, his whole body would start swelling. I said, ‘Bring the lentils and eat them in front of me.’
I sat next to him as he ate. I just told him, ‘I’ll take care. I’ll heal. Don’t worry.’ He ate and there was no swelling. The allergy simply disappeared. All that is needed is giving these people the courage to be unclutched. When I said that I would take care, he was able to break that shaft of fear which was causing his allergy!

Let me tell you an incident from the days of my spiritual journey:

I went to a village where there were many elderly Lamas. I asked one villager, ‘Can I see an elderly Lama?’ He said, ‘Go to that field. There is a Lama working there. You can speak to him.’ I went up to the Lama and spoke to him while he was working in the field. (more…)

A simple thought to have a cup of coffee can remove the so-called powerful death fear!


No Comments

A person once came and asked me, ‘I am haunted by the fear of death. I have so much fear about losing my wealth, and about my death. Give me some solution. Please remove my fear.’

I told him, ‘Please have a cup of coffee.’ He said, ‘What do you mean?’ I said, ‘Just think of having a cup of coffee, then have a cup of coffee.’ He was not able to believe me and asked, ‘How can that help me?’

I asked him, ‘The moment you are able to think of having a cup of coffee and decide to have a cup of coffee, the death fear that is haunting your inner space has left your inner space. Am I right? Even if it is only for a split second, the fact that the thought about coffee has entered your system means that the death fear has been pushed aside!’

Unless the death fear leaves his inner space, he cannot think of having a cup of coffee, right?

We have already seen that only one thought can exist in your inner space at a time. If the older thought comes back, it means that you have consciously brought it back, like bringing back a trashed email to your inbox. So naturally, a simple thought to have a cup of coffee can remove the so-called powerful death fear.

The man said, ‘No, it looks too simple! The death fear definitely comes back, what should I do?’ If it comes back, have one more cup of coffee, that’s all! (more…)

Celebrate your Self saying a deep ‘yes’ to you as you are! Celebrate the very Existence of the world by realizing it is an independent intelligence with profound mystery constantly expanding with causeless auspiciousness! Celebrate God as creativity overflowing for no reason! When you celebrate the existence of Self, World and God, you will suddenly see all these three disappear into celebration and what remains is eternal bliss, Nithyananda!

One thing has to be understood very clearly.

The whole of Existence is an auspicious happening. You are part of Existence, so everything happening around you is also auspicious. This is the truth of Existence. Nothing that happens in Existence is inauspicious. Everything is only a blessing.

If this is understood clearly, there is nothing to complain about in life. If this is understood clearly, your very eye becomes a grateful eye. It sees everything as extraordinary. Nothing appears mundane. Everything appears as a miracle. Miracles are continuously happening in front of our eyes. But we continuously miss them! Only because we miss them, life itself appears to be dull sometimes. When we start perceiving them, our entire life becomes a miracle. The truth is, there are too many miracles happening around us in our lives.
If we celebrate the three things, the existence of the self, world and god, we will experience the whole of Existence as a blessing that is happening continuously. Let me explain.

When you celebrate the existence of the self, god and world, all three will reveal their mysteries to you. Please understand that when I say celebrate the self, god and world, I am not giving you moral advice. I am giving you a spiritual technique. (more…)

When you carry causeless gratitude in you, life will be sweet all the time irrespective of external circumstances!


1 Comment

In today’s world, any action needs a reason. If I tell a small child to come near me, the child will look for some reason. If I hold up a chocolate, she will come near! Utility has taken root very deeply within us. When there is utility there is action, or else justifying the action becomes difficult. 

When I tell people to live with a sense of gratitude, they immediately start looking for reasons. Real gratitude can never have a reason. It happens as a causeless flowering within you. Does the flower bloom for a reason?

No! It blooms because it is its very nature.

Gratitude is our real nature. It has been covered by layers of conditioning from society. 

Society doesn’t know the language of gratitude. It knows only the language of utility. It straightaway instills greed and fear in you so that you will give it the needed results. Society doesn’t know there is a path of gratitude that will give much better results than the paths of fear and greed. That is the problem.  (more…)

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.

Remembering the ‘Seer’ meditation technique


No Comments

There are two steps. Remember who the seer is. When you open the eyes, understand that you are seeing through the eyes. You are not seeing. Then suddenly you will see that your whole energy is centered in the ajna chakra or brow center between the two eyes. You will see things more clearly, in more detail like How you see things as fresh after it rains. Then you will have neither attachment nor detachment, you will not have any suffering.

For example, sometimes in your sleep, you know you are dreaming but you don’t come out of the dream. In that state, you can see that your dreams are clearer and you can even alter the dream. In the same way when you realize that what you think as reality now is only a dream, you will have the energy and intelligence to alter it!

When the frequency of your consciousness rises, you will get the intelligence to realize that it is only a dream and so there is no need to change it.

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


1 Comment

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 it is your very nature.

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

If you accept yourself just as you are, you can accept others also as they are.


Ocean of Energy Technique

This technique puts you in touch with the tremendous energy inside of you. There is an immense reservoir of energy inside us that most of us are not even aware of. If you know how to tap into this vast energy source, you can simply go beyond what you now think are your limitations.

The key to this meditation is to keep the mind fixed on the throat region, the location of the vishuddhi chakra, throughout the technique. When you do this, the cosmic energy enters through the vishuddhi chakra and becomes a tremendous source of energy for you.

Stand with your eyes closed and focus on your vishuddhi chakra. Stand behind a chair or some support and hold it and start walking slowly, very slowly in the same spot where you are standing.

Now start increasing your pace very gradually. Keep walking faster and faster in the same spot. Push your limits only to the extent that you can, with no discomfort. Don’t over-exert yourself at any time. At all times focus on the vishuddhi. You will be able to feel the energy coming from it. The important thing is never to slow down at any point in time but always keep your awareness on the throat region. Stop after twenty minutes.

Then, for the next ten minutes, just sit down quietly wherever you are. Keep your eyes closed and focus on the vishuddhi. You will absorb the energy that is generated during the movement.

Meditation technique to overcome jealousy


No Comments

Jealousy is closely related to many negative emotions like anger, greed, possessiveness and depression. All of these emotions will dissolve when we break this cycle of jealousy. Jealousy cannot be overcome either by escaping from it or hating the object of jealousy.

All you need to do is just be fully aware when the feeling of jealousy arises. You will be surprised, it simply disappears.

The enlightened master Buddha says, ‘Destroy those envying roots and enjoy lasting peace.’

Just be aware and destroy the jealousy, competition, envy and comparison that have robbed you of your very nature of bliss. Use the light of awareness to reveal the shadow nature of these negative emotions. Otherwise, you are just caught in the rat race. I always tell people, even if you win the rat race, you are still just a rat!

The way out of jealousy is not by suppressing it or denying its existence. Expressing and encouraging it is also not the way because then you are not ready to face the jealousy with awareness.

Just watch how jealousy arises in you, how it develops into hatred for the object of jealousy, how it creates restlessness and frustration inside you and makes you lose all of your peace and calm.

Be aware of the jealousy instead of hating it or the object of your jealousy. Just watch, as if you have nothing to do with it. Look at it with a scientific attitude. What do I mean by a scientific attitude?

When a scientist is experimenting, he simply experiments without any judgment, without any pre-determined conclusion. If he has a conclusion already in his mind, that means he is not a scientist because his conclusion may influence the experiment.

Now, you are the scientist in the laboratory of the inner-world science. Be a scientist in your inner world and let your mind be your laboratory. Just be aware and witness without any prejudice.

Don’t condemn the emotion saying it is bad because that is what you have been taught. It has not become your experience. If it is your experience that jealousy is a negative emotion you will drop it automatically. It has not become your own experience. It is only something that you have picked up from others. Unless it becomes an experiential understanding in you that jealousy and comparison are negative, it will not become a part of you.

Don’t condemn the object of jealousy. The object has not generated the emotion from outside. The jealousy is happening inside you.

Once you see your jealousy with awareness, you will realize that it does not have a basis for existence at all. When this happens, jealousy will drop automatically. You won’t have to drop it.

The fire of jealousy can just consume you completely if you don’t control it with the fire extinguisher of your awareness.

Whenever you have physical pain, whenever you have mental suffering, try this technique to be healed that very moment!

Look into the blue sky beyond the clouds. Normally, we only look into the clouds and pass judgment on them as ‘beautiful clouds’, ‘dark clouds’ and what not. Now, do not get caught in clouds. Clouds are like thoughts, like dreams. Look beyond the clouds into the blue sky, the vast emptiness.

If you look at the clouds, your mind will start thinking something. If you look at the sky beyond the clouds, your mind will stop working! If you start looking at the stars, again you will start thinking. Seeing the clouds means getting stuck with your thoughts. Seeing the stars means getting stuck with spiritual visions and experiences. Don’t do either.

Just look into the empty, vast and open blue sky. Just lie down. Do not support your head with a pillow. Otherwise you will fall asleep. Just lie down and stare at the sky, the vast empty space.

Just gaze at the sky. You may experience fear. If you just gaze without looking at the clouds or counting the stars you will experience fear because the idea of your boundary is getting lost. Don’t bother about the fear.

If you are doing it properly you will have fear. If you are gazing and managing to think, you will not experience the fear because you are still caught in the boundary of the body. It is like back-seat driving. You are gazing and your mind is thinking.

Just gaze, do not think. After some time, suddenly you will realize you have forgotten your body for a few minutes. The link, the shaft of thoughts that you normally create has suddenly disappeared. This can’t happen if you are expecting it to happen.

Don’t expect, ‘When will I lose my thoughts? When will I lose the shaft?’ Just gaze without bothering about anything.

When you see that in the last few seconds there were no thoughts, just close your eyes and bring the whole outer space into the inner space. Visualize the same thing inside you. Suddenly you will see you are having the same thing inside. There are no thoughts, no stars. There is just vast space.

If you are having knee pain, try this technique. Just gaze at the sky. Suddenly when you remember that for the last few seconds you did not have thoughts, take that whole space inside your knee where you have pain. The pain will simply disappear in a few seconds.

Whenever you have physical pain, whenever you have mental suffering, try this technique. That very moment you will be healed. That very moment you will simply see the inner healing happening inside you.

Apart from the healing, if you are a seeker looking for spiritual growth, it will also bring you tremendous energy and quantum experiences. You will have a quantum jump in your growth.

  • Just penetrate and be in that space without using the word ‘pain’ or ‘suffering’ until the feeling or the sensation disappears.

The moment you get hurt physically, energy supplied by your own body intelligence rushes to that part to heal it and we label that energy rush as ‘pain’!


1 Comment

You can use this as a technique for dissolving physical pain in any part of your body.

  • When you are faced with physical pain, just witness the feeling of pain in that part of your body in a relaxed way.
  • You will see that first, there might be a surge of pain, but soon the pain reduces to a spot and disappears.
  • What happens is that the moment you get hurt physically, energy supplied by your own body intelligence rushes to that part to heal it. The energy rush is what you label ‘pain’.

If you witness the energy rushing and healing in a relaxed way, the pain disappears and healing happens. If we just understand this, we will not resist and suffer the pain. We will cooperate with the natural healing energy of the body.

Your own inner ambulance system is what you call pain!

The witnessing focus that you give the pain will make you realize that you are more than a mere body. You will touch your energy base and realize that you are more than the body-mind.

Watch the pain intensely but without attaching the word ‘pain’ and the meaning ‘suffering’ to it. For a brief moment the pain may seem to intensify but soon it will dissolve.

Actually, the body is intelligent enough to allow energy to flow to the part of the body that is asking for energy. But you resist that energy flow by labeling it as ‘pain’. Just allow the energy to flow by infusing full awareness into that part of the body. Just look at the energy flow with curiosity. Be a complete outsider. Do not participate in the process. Just let the energy flow to that area and work on it. You will see it heal.

Frozen technique when you feel pain or suffering


1 Comment

Here is another meditation technique you can try when you feel pain or suffering.

Close your eyes. You don’t have to sit straight. Just sit in a completely relaxed way. If you want to stretch your leg, you can stretch. If you want to sit on the ground, you can. If you want to lean on the wall, you can do that. Just make yourself completely comfortable so that you will face the actual pain or suffering. If you are uncomfortable you might start facing the pain that comes because of your uncomfortable posture. Only if your body is comfortable will you be able to face the real pain or suffering.

  • Close your eyes, visualize that from head to toe your body has frozen completely.
  • Just stop all movement.
  • Just freeze.
  • Be like a stone.
  • There should be no movement in the eyes, no movement in the hands, no movement in the legs, no movement even for breathing. Just stop, freeze.
  • Only the idea that you are frozen should be there inside you. No other idea should be there. Entertain only this one idea that you are completely frozen.
  • Do not imagine or visualize any relaxation from it. Relaxation or witnessing consciousness should happen by itself. Until then just be completely frozen.
  • You will see that you establish yourself in the ultimate state of bliss.

Self-healing meditation technique to channel your presence into the diseased limb or the suffering mind


1 Comment

Pain is actually the absence of attention, so the solution is ‘giving your presence’.

There is a simple and beautiful self-healing meditation technique that channels your presence into the diseased limb or the suffering mind. You can try it out the next time you experience pain or suffering. It is definitely a better option than painkillers, whose side-effects sometimes are worse than the original complaint.

Just try this. Suppose you have pain in your leg, or you are suffering because of some external incident.

  • Lie down in a dark room.
  • Make a conscious effort to forget about your whole body, focusing only on the spot which is causing you pain.
  • If it is mental suffering, then forget your whole body and focus only on that incident that caused you suffering.
  • As you experience the pain, deliberately drop the word ‘pain’ from your mind.
  • Your mental chatter will continue to tell you that you feel pain.
  • Switch it off.
  • Feel it deeply.
  • Experience it with an open mind.
  • Look into what is happening inside your mind.
  • You will soon see that your mind was just exaggerating the pain.
  • Put all your awareness on the center of the pain, and it will soon shrink to become just a tiny point of pain.
  • Concentrate completely on this point and you will discover in a sudden moment that the pain disappears, and in its place there is bliss!

Step 1.

  • Remember the swadhishtana.
  • Be aware intensely of the being center, two inches below the navel.
  • Intensely chant the “hoo” kara by producing the sound hooooo, through the mouth as you exhale as loudly and as long as possible.
  • This will create a vibration effect around your mouth.
  • Allow any fear that comes up to come up.
  • If you are trembling or shaking or feeling disturbed, it is ok.
  • Intensely chant the hoo kara mantra.

Step 2:

  • Relax in the being center.

Pure greed is intense bliss or excitement. Pure fear is intense peace.

Through bliss, you can achieve. Through peace also, you can achieve. Relax into the peace, and you will see that you are completely alive!

Hamsa Mantra Meditation


1 Comment

This is a very powerful technique that can be used twenty-four hours a day. Whenever you are attacked by fear, just sit back and relax. Put your awareness only on your exhaling breath. Repeat the word ‘sah’ silently as you exhale, that is, with the outgoing breath. Exhaling is like relaxing and letting go anything that can die. While inhaling you will be constantly trying to hold on to something. Exhaling is like letting go. Focus on exhaling without bothering about inhaling. When you inhale, repeat ‘ham’ silently.

Place more awareness and energy on the exhalation. Help yourself exhale deeper. Let the inhalation happen automatically through the body. Place your energy, attention and effort only on exhaling.

It is a silent intonation of ‘ham…sah…., ham…sah’. Silent intonation of this hamsa mantra* will suddenly take you into the awareness, the relaxation, that never dies. Whatever can die will leave your system, your inner space.
