By your very nature you are unclutched from body and mind!


No Comments

Please first understand that the thought that you are the body is itself an illusion. That is the first thought shaft that you create and suffer with as a result. If you start experiencing the truth that by your very nature you are illogical, independent, unconnected and unclutched, you will start creating a new, alive, and fresh body.

We abuse and disrespect our bodies in order to satisfy our ego. The moment we start to realize that we are not the body, we allow the body to function naturally. By its very nature, the body heals itself. The body has its own intelligence. However, you have lost connection with that wonderful intelligence. You constantly abuse and torture your body. The moment you start thinking, ‘I am the body,’ you start abusing the body. You do so many things to satisfy the mind that, by their nature, abuse the body. If you can relax from the idea that you are the body, you will start to respect the body. You will make decisions that allow the body intelligence to function beautifully. You will allow the body to live naturally. You will be alive, bubbling and overflowing with energy. The moment you start understanding that you are not the mind, you will have sharp intelligence and spontaneity. (more…)

Why do we compare ourselves with others? Because we forgot that all of the confidence, intelligence, and vibrant energy that we need already exists inside us!

Emotions of fear, desire and guilt are subjective emotions. What I mean by this is that you do not need another person or even an object to create these emotions. Imagine that you are in a sound-proofed room with your eyes closed and with nothing to touch, taste or smell. You can still feel the emotions of fear or desire. But to compare yourself with another person and to feel jealous of him, you need the presence of another person.

Jealousy is therefore an objective emotion.

It needs an object to be activated. Jealousy starts from comparison. We always compare ourselves with others in various fields like looks, wealth, knowledge, name and fame and friends to name a few. When we compare ourselves with others we feel that somebody else has something more than what we have and we get caught in jealousy.

Comparison is the seed and jealousy is the fruit! (more…)

Feel grateful to suffering and pain because they create the situation for you to search for the truth!

Just look back at your life.

When was the last time you were happy about something?

When was the last time you wondered about the meaning of life?

Did you look inwards to see who you are or what life is all about?

Did you feel the need to deeply know about the ultimate Truth?

No!

When things go smoothly you just blindly follow the same routine with barely any awareness or consciousness. There is nothing to jolt you into awareness from your routine and you continue without any awareness.

But when pain happens, it makes you look at life objectively. It forces you to look deeper into life, to learn why you react the way you react and seek to uncover the real mystery of life. Pain is a blessing in disguise. It is the key that can open the door to the world of reality. The choice is yours to open the door or not. (more…)

At the age of 10, in Arunachaleshwara temple in the shrine, Sannidhi of Devi – Unnamalai Amman. I was standing in one corner, suddenly I saw the cosmic geometrical representation. That time I did not know the word, only now, later on I came to know, it is Sri Yantra in the golden, shining, absolute, energy light form. And then, Devi appeared in this very form She is gracing now with Lakshmi and Saraswati. When I had darshan I saw only Devi Bhuvaneshwari. Here she is gracing with Lakshmi and Saraswati. There, when I had darshan, I saw Her only this form – the Ankusha and Pasha and Abhaya and Varada. It’s just too much, too much. Slowly that very geometry and that form, both disappeared into My inner-space. Then I went back to home, carved the deity as I experienced in the stone, carved the Devi, the same way I saw in stone and carved that Sri Chakra the same way I saw in copper plate. This happened. You can see the yantra I carved after the darshan at the age of 10 and this is the deity of the Devi I carved a the age of 10. Actually this happened during Navaratri only. I do not know whether it happened exactly on the 4th day and 5th day and all that. But during the Navaratri time. 

Let me enter into the Upanishad. Ishavasya Upanishad. I was expanding continuously. Today I will continue to expand on 16th verse. Recite along with me.

Complete the frightened, arrogant child in you

Every morning, a father and a son, must be seven or eight-year-old son, both of them go for a walk. Every morning they walk outside their house. One day morning, suddenly, that son started getting frightened seeing an old tree standing in a corner and started crying, ‘Oh, it is a ghost! It is a ghost!’, started shivering, crying, and holding the father, screaming, telling him, ‘Father, please take me away from here! Take me away from here! There is a ghost!’

Please listen, if the father is trying to comfort the child, for the comfort of that child if the father is taking the child away from the tree, I tell you, it is equivalent to me giving upon you! That is the worst thing that can happen in your life! Even if you go to Hell, don’t be given upon by the Guru; you will simply come out.

If you are not given upon by the Guru, even if you go to Hell, you will just come out of Hell Fire untouched. If you are given upon by the Guru, even Heaven will burn you!

There are tons of people who are suffering in Heaven. Indra (ruler of Heaven) himself is suffering in Heaven because he can’t go anywhere else. And Heaven is the most unstable place because of a curse by a rishi. That is why, whenever you feel any pleasure, you will always feel insecurity. Whether you believe it or not, pleasure and insecurity go hand in hand. Understand, if you are not given upon by the Master, even Hell cannot touch you; even if you are in hell, Hell Fire cannot touch you; you will come out of it. If you are given upon by the Master, even Heaven will be the worst hell, suffering.  (more…)

From 34:04, Swamiji speaks on common misconceptions about Infinity, and gives a mind expanding clarity. Ordinary logic, limited One God Theory view, sees Infinite as One, believing God is infinite in power and possibility, but only one such infinite being exists. Advanced understanding knows Infinity is Infinite! Infinite number of divine expressions each with an infinite number of possibilities. The highest understanding knows Infinity is Infinite and IMMEDIATE; even all the possibilities already exist. Infinite, infinite, immediate.

Myths/Truths about Karma


No Comments

First statement—Karma means that the effects of our actions will come back to us in the future.

Myth. Karma means the effect of your thought currents will come back to your in the future till you complete. That’s a reality.

‘Karma means that the effects of our actions will come back to us in the future’—is a myth. There is no CC TV recording going on in the Cosmos, where your actions will be bringing suffering to you in the future, no. But your thought currents will be bringing the results in the future.

There is audio recording going on in the Cosmos, not video recording.

Video recording means your actions being captured, audio recording means your thought currents being captured. Cosmos has only audio recording, no video recording. Understand, cosmos has no CC TV camera, it is only video muted camera, audio recording.

A video recording getting punished is cheap, childish. God is not interested in that game. God is not playing the game of the judge and there is no such thing as you will be judged, weighed based on your actions. That is childish, too childish, immatured. If God is supposed to do that job, you don’t need God, you just need men who can just analyze CC TV footage of your life and pass the judgement of whatever is required. (more…)

I will continue to expand on the 8th verse of the Īśāvāsya Upaniṣad

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…)

The most subtlest experience of Consciousness you got when you were alive, that will only automatically open up when you leave the body

By defining Consciousness, Upaniṣads are asking us to align ourself again to the context.

Pure Consciousness is all-pervasive, beyond the coming and going, absolute radiant, and self-effulgent, unembodied, boundaryless whole, beyond the subtle body, woundless, muscleless, having no incompletion 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.

This description, this description itself needs to be meditated. I wanted that today’s Vākyārtha Sadas should be held on: What is the meaning of each of these words? Pure Consciousness is all-pervasive, then what is that all-pervasive? Beyond Space! Earth is not all-pervasive, water is not all-pervasive; Fire is not all-pervasive; Air is not all-pervasive, even Space is not all-pervasive, then what is it, subtler than the Space which is all-pervasive? Ability to visualize? No! There are so many tons of things which can’t be visualized. There are so many things which can’t even be thought about. Then what is Pure Consciousness? When you contemplate, you will have ‘click’. Please understand, every contemplation on Pure Consciousness will give you a ‘click’, that is Consciousness for you. And if you further contemplate on it, you will have a better, and deeper and subtler understanding and ‘click.’ These clicks getting refined is Spiritual Growth. (more…)

यस्तु सर्वाणि भूतान्यात्मन्यॆवानुपश्यति ।

Yasthu Sarvaani Bhoothaani Aathmanyeva Anupashyathi |

“One who, indeed, lives by seeing as it is the whole Existence, all the manifest and un-manifest existing in the Consciousness itself, and the Consciousness existing in the whole Existence, thus does not feel violated or hates anything existing, by virtue of not seeing oneself as separate from the Consciousness.”

Listen! Today I am going to explain the subtle nuances, when you put an idea inside you, how your mind creates ripple effects. Please understand, the moment I say, ‘Everything is in your Consciousness, you are in everything that exists’, for a normal person, the first thing that will come up, the ripples created in you, ‘Oh, if everything is in me and I am in everything, why there is so much of suffering and conflict? Whom I love, don’t love me. Who loves me, I don’t feel love towards them.’

Please understand, somehow, love by its very nature, is triangle, never circle, because, whoever loves you, somehow you already take them for granted and you feel they are already in your kitty, in your pocket. And you want always adventure, exploring, excitement. So, ‘Come on, let us see the next! This is already there in my pocket! It is in my bag only!’ It is like, ‘Let us see the next house. This house already I got what I want to. The rice is in my bag. Go to the next house, like bhiksha, when you go for bhiksha.’ So, your conflicts stand up. Whoever I love, never loves me. Whoever loves me, somehow I feel taking it for granted with them; I don’t show the same love towards them. This is one of the biggest problems. ‘If everything is in me, and I am in everything, why this conflicts?’ (more…)

 If you find, ‘I am away from body and mind, and everything is there, and that everything is here, this is everywhere’, that is a Brahmanical way of realizing.  But if you understand, ‘Everything is in me, and I am in everything, and I will know how to alter and change, do what I have to do’, that is the way of realization of Shaivites, understand?

Listen!  I will repeat.  There are two logic, two ways you can realize that you exist in everything and everything exists in you.

One: The moment fear and greed happens, you understand, ‘After all I am not this body and mind.  I will be away.  So, I exist in everything, that exists in me.  Whatever happens, happens.’  This is the Brahmanical way.  This is the Brahmanical interpretation of this verse.  That is the way this verse is made practical in Brahmanical thinking.

Romance with the life, not because it is your other half, because it is you.

Let us enter into the sixth verse.  

यस्तु सर्वाणि भूतान्यात्मन्यॆवानुपश्यति ।

सर्वभूतॆषु चात्मानं ततॊ न विजुगुप्सतॆ ॥

Yasthu Sarvaani Bhoothaani Aathmanyeva Anupashyathi |

 Yes!

One who, indeed, lives by seeing as it is the whole Existence existing in the Consciousness, the Self itself, and the Consciousness existing in the whole Existence, by virtue of not seeing oneself as separate from the Consciousness, does not feel violated or hates anything existing.

“One who, indeed, lives by seeing as it is the whole Existence, all manifest and un-manifest beings existing in the Consciousness itself, and the Consciousness existing in the whole Existence, thus does not feel violated or hates anything existing, by virtue of not seeing oneself as separate from Consciousness.”

So the concept you have about you plays a very important, major role, in the way you live, the way you exist.

Understand, I am not searching for my other half, because I am not half!  I am already full!  I am complete!  So, what you experience about you, that decides your attitude about life, understand?  If you feel there is something other than you existing, you may have fear, or, feeling.  If you think the other part will complete you, you will have feeling, romance.  If you have an ounce of romance in the room, everything will be cleared, then fear will start happening; that’s all.

I tell you, if there is a snow storm, God will give you the ability to grow hair just like Polar Bear!  Be very clear, never ever your existence is denied, you are tortured, unless YOU decide to torture yourself.  Neither poverty nor disease or death itself can violate you.

One of the biggest problems we carry before even life attacks us, we conclude and decide life is going to attack us, and commit suicide!  Stop this pattern of constantly feeling violated.  I am telling you, the most stupid pattern a human-being suffers is “feeling violated”, and when you tell them, they get angry towards you.  That is the worst thing!  When I tell them, ‘Arrey, listen!  Even death cannot violate you!  Neither your poverty nor your disease or any depression, nothing can violate you!’, whoever understands that, with whoever’s inner space this statement echoes, you feel connected to it, you just feel, ‘Yes, it seems true’, you are Mahadeva!

I tell you, the one and only basic blood group of Mahadeva…..  I am using a new word: “Mahadeva’s Blood Group”!  If you want to become Mahadeva’s blood group, if you want to join his club of Shiva-gana, just one truth –

“Nothing can violate you!”

– remember that!  (more…)

The fifth verse of Ishavasya Upanishad.

तदेजति तन्नैजति तद्दूरे तद्वन्तिके।
तदन्तरस्य सर्वस्य तदु सर्वस्यास्य बाह्यतः॥

Thadhejathi Thannaijathi Thadhdhoore Thadhvanthike |

Thadhantharasya Sarvasya Thadhu Sarvasyaasya Baahyathah ||

“That moves, and That moves not.  That is far off, That is also near.

That is the inner space of all this.  That is also the outer space of all this.”

I can go on repeating this verse, but will never be able to comment on it.  May be, I will intercept and reveal the pre-text, context, for all of you to understand the meaning and make it more user-friendly.

तदेजति तन्नैजति तद्दूरे तद्वन्तिके।
तदन्तरस्य सर्वस्य तदु सर्वस्यास्य बाह्यतः॥

Thadhejathi Thannaijathi Thadhdhoore Thadhvanthike |

Thadhantharasya Sarvasya Thadhu Sarvasyaasya Baahyathah ||

Listen!  Listen!  Anything moves and moves not should be beyond which moves and moves not, understand?  The way to realize the reality…  See, the way to perceive the Perception, is not to question it too much.  If you question it, it will melt down like a dream.  The moment you stop questioning the dream, dream will melt down.  Dream always presents completely illogical things in front of you.  And if you question it, especially the person whom you really like appears in the dream, almost about to hug you, if you ask, ‘How can this be possible so easily?’, the dream will disappear, understand?  The item which you always wanted to eat is in front of your table; you are about to eat.  If you ask the question, ‘How can this be possible so easily?’, the dream will disappear.  Whenever you relate with Perception, you have to do it very sensitively; you can’t touch it, you can’t question it.  It is “Touch-Me-Not”.  Always your Perception is “Touch-Me-Not”.  That is why, when you question your love, it will disappear.  All your so-called falling in love – ‘Lovvvee…..’ – the falling in love, the moment you question it, ‘Is it authentic?’, straightaway you will see, it lands on just the skin, and skin colour; not even skin deep!  Perception, the moment you question, dissolves, disappears.

Next, Fact will stand the scrutiny of logic, but not larger life logic.  Listen!  Fact will stand the scrutiny of logic, but not larger life logic.  For example, if somebody makes a statement, ‘Earth is flat’, yes, it will stand the scrutiny of your simple logic, straightforward logic.  ‘Yes, it looks flat.  So it is flat.’  But it won’t stand the larger logic which you can understand with various equipments, not with just your empty eyes.  The larger logic.  The facts are such, it will stand the scrutiny of ordinary logic, but not the larger logic.

Truth will stand anything which you can grasp, like logic, larger logic, machineries, the scientific discovery, research.  Truth will stand for anything.  But, still, it is not reality.  It won’t stand the scrutiny of the Consciousness.

Reality is the one and only one which can stand the scrutiny of the Consciousness, understand?

All confusions in the world is the fight between Perception, Fact, Truth, Reality.  Whether it is in the field of religion, science, spirituality, logic, law, mathematics, any field, it is just the fight between Perception, Fact, Truth, and Reality. 

Blessed are those who are always established on realization of Reality.

I tell you, the most non-suffering way of existence is establishing yourself in reality.  Don’t go for perceiving about you, life, or God, based on what larger number of people say.  They don’t know, and they don’t have time to analyze, scrutinize.  Second, don’t go with your calculation.  You know how to calculate only your salary.  A person who receives one lakh salary can never imagine or perceive raising and spending zillion dollars.  No!  It takes literally transformation, understand?

If it goes above your head, listen to this satsangh once or twice, participate in the Vaakyaartha Sadhas, listen now what I am saying.

Don’t decide what is God, who is God, based on what larger number of people tell you.  Never think because larger number of people tell, it is truth.  No!  Don’t go for what is God, who is God, based on your logic which can calculate only very less levels.  Don’t go for deciding what is God, who is God, based on your understandings about your perceptions.  The only way you can realize, cognize the reality, God, is Apta Pramana, the declarations of rishis, and Atma Pramana, declaration of your Guru from his own realization.  The Apta Pramana of rishis have become Atma Pramana of me.  The realizations of rishis have become my realization, and, if you internalize that, my realization will become your realization, the Apta Pramana of Guru will become Atma Pramana of you, understand?

Here Consciousness, God, is declaring who is he, what is he.  He is declaring about himself.

तदेजति तन्नैजति तद्दूरे तद्वन्तिके।
Thadhejathi Thannaijathi Thadhdhoore Thadhvanthike

 The word “Thath” (तत्) is translated as “That” here wrongly.  The “Thath” (तत्) here will not mean “That”.  “Thath” (तत्) is “Truth”.

Thath ejathi (तत् एजति): “Truth walks”.

Thath naijathi  (तत् नैजति): “Truth does not walk”.

Thath dhoore Thadhvanthike  (तत् दूरे तद्वन्तिके): “It is far off.  That is also near”.  Thadhdhoore Thadhvanthike  (तद्दूरे तद्वन्तिके)!

Thath antharasya (तत् अन्तरस्य): Means, “That is the inner space”.

Sarvasya (सर्वस्य): “For everything”.

Thadhu Sarvasyaasya Baahyathah (तदु सर्वस्यास्य बाह्यतः)!

Only when your Third Eye is awakened, you will understand there is no such thing as “inner”, “outer”.  I am telling you!  That is what is the result of Third Eye awakening.  How to find out for somebody Third Eye is fully awakened? 

The idea of “inner”, “outer”, will disappear in them!  You will see my Gurukul kids will experience that!  Actually, I am working with more and more powerful meditation processes and techniques with the kids.

When the Third Eye is open, you will be able to see, perceive everything inside and outside, without even knowing any difference or gap.  Completely freely!  Completely freely!

तदेजति तन्नैजति तद्दूरे तद्वन्तिके।
तदन्तरस्य सर्वस्य तदु सर्वस्यास्य बाह्यतः॥

Thadhejathi Thannaijathi Thadhdhoore Thadhvanthike |

Thadhantharasya Sarvasya Thadhu Sarvasyaasya Baahyathah ||

It is ignorance which reminds you, which makes you feel something is “inside” and “outside”, something is “far off” and “near”.  It is like, in the Ganga, one bamboo is floating.  Because that bamboo is there, you say “Right side Ganga” and “Left side Ganga”.  Ganga ever got divided?  No!  If you just remove that bamboo stick, Ganga got united?  No!  Neither division nor uniting ever happens is reality.

  • Ganga is “divided” is Perception.
  • “Right Side Ganga”, “Left Side Ganga” is Fact.
  • ‘No, it is not divided’ is Truth.
  • ‘It can never be divided or united’ is Reality.

Listen!  Bamboo, single bamboo stick can give you Perception, Fact, Truth, which does not exist.  You can go on be arguing and establishing.

तदेजति तन्नैजति तद्दूरे तद्वन्तिके।
Thadhejathi Thannaijathi Thadhdhoore Thadhvanthike |

तदेजति तन्नैजति तद्दूरे तद्वन्तिके।

Thadhejathi Thannaijathi Thadhdhoore Thadhvanthike |

Thadhantharasya Sarvasya Thadhu Sarvasyaasya Baahyathah ||

 The idea of “inner”, “outer”, “moves”, “moves not”, all this is created.  Just like bamboo stick creates division in Ganga, your ignorance, powerlessness, creates division in you, or appears to have created division in you.  How you will handle the bamboo stick, you should handle exactly the same way your ignorance.  You should know it can never divide you as “inner” and “outer”.  It can never make you “inside” and “outside”.  It can never make you “moves” and “moves not”.

Today’s Vaakyaartha Sadhas is this one subject: “BAMBOO STICK, POWERLESSNESS STICK”.

Understand this one example:  What bamboo stick floating on the Ganga does to it, and what ignorance, powerlessness floating on you does to you.  This example if you merge, Ganga is your Consciousness, bamboo stick is your powerlessness, right and left is which you call as “inside and outside”, “moves and moves not”, “far off, near”, all that.  How, when you look at the small area, it really looks bamboo stick has divided Ganga.  For an ant, that bamboo stick is equivalent to dam – ‘Wow!  Such a big dam!  Ganga cannot touch me!  I am protected!’  That bamboo stick is not even a ship, it is a dam for an ant!

So:

  • How when your Perception is too small what all the impact that bamboo stick, powerlessness does in you;
  • When your Perception grows a little bit and rises to the level of Fact, what that bamboo stick does to Ganga, and your powerlessness does to you;
  • When you rise to the level of Truth, what that bamboo stick does to Ganga and what your powerlessness does to you;
  • When you rise to the level of Reality, what that bamboo stick does to Ganga, what your powerlessness does to you;
  • What that bamboo stick means to Ganga, what your powerlessness means to you;

have Vaakyaartha Sadhas on this.  You will understand, grasp:

The translation: ‘The various abodes of the Asuras, the lower level existence, are in the form of inferior or lower grade worlds, which are like hells coerced by darkness, representing all the negative qualities, collectively called “thamas”. Those who literally kill the Athma become ghosts who inhabit such horrible abodes, and, this, they continue to do repeatedly.’

Listen! People who say “YES” to life, what will happen to them was described in the last verses. Now, people who say “NO” to life, what will happen to them is getting described.

Listen! Whenever you entertain “NO” to life, first, always, “NO” is entertained as frustration. Then it evolves as anger, violence, self-doubt, self-hatred, self-denial; all this is various expressions. But, it starts as frustration. So, I tell you, one of the important qualities to say “YES” to life is tremendous patience. Listen! Tremendous patience! YES! YES! YES! Every time YES! After every time, YES!

Listen! Every time, when, what you want does not happen, don’t say “NO”; end in “YES”. I am not saying accept. No!

Not only what you perceive as the world, even the perceiver is changing!

तेन त्यक्तेन भुञ्जीथा मा गृधः कस्यस्विद्धनम् ॥
Thena Thyakthena Bhunjeethaa Ma Gridhah Kasyasviddhanam ||

Cognizing whatever is, is change established in changing, and this whole thing is filled with Consciousness and intelligence. Don’t think only the planet on which you are standing is moving; the whole Solar System in which the planet is established, even that whole Solar System is moving! So, understand, not only what you perceive as the world, even the perceiver is changing!

The biggest fear all human-beings go through is, ‘If the perceiver changes, what will happen?’ See, your whole life you conclude something as pleasure, something as pain, and you plan, act, work, build everything based on that. Suddenly, at some time, the perceiver who gives you the understanding about which is pleasure, which is pain, he seems to be changing. That is what frightens you. That is what makes you shiver. That is what shakes you. I tell you, the person who knows that even the perceiver changes, and accepts this change, updates himself. You might have spent ten years on your career – may be, IT Engineer, Lawyer, Doctor, Activist. Suddenly, when your inner-space changes, the concepts of your pain and pleasure…… I am not saying give up the career you built. I am only saying, don’t be afraid of that change; don’t be afraid of that change of your perception, because, that change of perception is the gift given to you for your sincerity in supporting your perception.

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 at all. 

Listen!  Yesterday I was expanding these four words.  I will expand those four words a little more deep, and then move to the next.  Listen! 

PERCEPTION: Whatever your senses can perceive in a limited Time and Space.
Second, FACT: Your senses perceiving with more Time and Space.
TRUTH: With a lot more Time and Space, even your perception evolves.  Truth!
REALITY is: Existence as it is, beyond your perception and Time and Space. (more…)

ईशावास्यमिदं सर्वं यत्किञ्च जगत्यां जगत् ।
Eeshaavaasyamidham Sarvam Yathkincha Jagathyaam Jagath |

Whatever is moving in the moving world is enveloped by Consciousness

I should use the word “filled”. Even “enveloped” is an incomplete word. “Filled”! “Enveloped” means, something which is getting enveloped is away from what is enveloped. No!

Listen! “Yathkincha Jagathyaam Jagath” (यत्किञ्च जगत्यां जगत्) – “Whatever you think as moving in ever-moving world” – it means, “moving”, “change”, is your perception and factual. Listen! Many times your perception is not factual, your factual is not truth, your truth is not reality. Listen! I am organizing words – Perception, Fact, Truth, Reality.

· PERCEPTION: Earth is flat. Sun goes around the Earth.

· FACT: Earth is round. Earth only is going around the Sun.

· TRUTH: Listen! Earth is not exactly round. And, Sun is going around the Earth.

· REALITY: How the Earth looks, see it from Google map. And Earth and Sun both are going around each other! (more…)

Spirituality, Technique, Truth, Upanishads

The first statement of Eeshavaasya Upanishad is not only the Truth but also a Technique!


No Comments

Listen! This first statement, I can tell you, it is just a shock! It is so inclusive and so conclusive! That is why I am telling you, it can be applied immediately as a technique, and it will be realized as a truth any moment by you, understand? All these great truths, sometimes they are truth, but cannot be applied as techniques. Sometimes they are techniques, but cannot be taken as truth. When there is a gap…….

Yesterday I explained some of the statements, like Ramana Maharshi is saying, ‘Nothing will happen without His grace. Only what He wants will happen.’ See, this is a powerful technique if you practice it honestly with integrity; but, I have seen many people exploiting it. Many of these so-called religions people, they will do all the mistake and say, ‘Only by God’s will everything happens. Everything happens, finally, by His will.’

One fellow came to me. He said, ‘I am stuck in poverty. Please bless me. Somehow help me to get out of this poverty.’

I asked him, ‘What is the reason why this poverty happened?’

‘Oh, I have fourteen kids.’

I asked him, ‘You could have been a little intelligent.’

He says, ‘What can I do? God gave!’

No, I just looked at him. I did not ask him any further questions! Now how I am looking at you guys, same way I looked at him. He understood!

I didn’t ask him verbally, ‘Did God come and do everything?’ But he understood! (more…)

Spirituality, Upanishads

Is there anything called “incompletion”? If it is not there, why are we perceiving it ?


No Comments

It is like extracting the gold out of mud. See, the gold ore, they collect the gold ore, process it, boil it, acid-wash it; finally the gold comes out. Did the gold come from somewhere out of nowhere? No! It came only from itself. But was the gold there in the beginning? No! It came only from itself. Exactly like the gold from the gold ore, an enlightened being out of you, it is there inside you! Only if it is there it can come out. Otherwise it can’t come out.

Whatever needs to be added in you for you to become an enlightened being is “Completion”. Whatever needs to be removed from you is the idea you have incompletion.

There is no incompletion itself. If something is there, it will continue to be there. Listen! If something is there, it will continue to be there. From the gold ore, if all the dirt can be removed, and gold finally remains, how can you say there was a time this dirt was part of the gold? Anything which can be removed, how can you say it was part of it? You were insensitive to see both of them separate in the beginning. Now they have become separated to the level you are able to sense, that’s all! Listen! If the dirt is inside the gold, can it be separated? No! Because it was never inside, it can be separated. If the incompletions are part of your programming, it can never be separated. Because it is already out of you, it can be taken out. Understand, now they are out of you, but not to the level you can sense it. Once they are out of you to the level you can sense it, you declare:

पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदम् पूर्णात् पूर्णमुदच्यते |

पूर्णस्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते ||

Poornamadhah Poornamidham Poornaath Poornam Udhachyathey |

Poornasya Poornamaadhaaya Poornamevaavasishyathey || (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 ||

Apourushya! Authorless !

UPANISHADS! Before explaining a book, we have to explain what it stands for. Before explaining what it stands for, I have to explain who made it stand for that. Before explaining who made it stand for that, I have to explain who wrote it. That is where now the whole thing starts. How can we tell the modern world that something exists, that there is a book which has no author? Profound, extraordinary expressions, truths, realizations, revelations, but no author! Author is dissolved in the authenticity of the truths.

Please understand, whenever a book is written, the truth and the personality who presents the truth, both of them are expressed in that book. That is why I always tell people that all books are biographies of the author. Please understand, whether it is a science or a history or a religion or philosophy, self-development, whatever classification you give, all books you have to basically classify as “Biography”, because, there is no book which does not have the smell, presence, touch of the author, please understand. In the libraries, we should classify first all books as “Biography”. Under the section “Biography”, you can classify as “Biography based on Religion”, “Science based on Religion”, “Mysticism based on Religion”, “Self-help based on Religion”. The more the personal involvement, more it becomes fiction, understand? In a science book, the more the scientist is present, the less the science is present. In a philosophy book, the more the philosopher is present, the less the philosophy is present. In a history book, the more the historian is present, the less the facts and the history, the less the authenticity or the truth of the history is present. When the historians have personal interests, likes, dislikes, history can never be presented to you authentically. In any book, the more the author is present, the less the truth is presented; the more his personal touch, the less the reality.

That is why I always insist that all pharmaceutical companies should be non-profit organizations. Having medical care under the “profit industry” is the most dangerous. (more…)

Upanishads

When You Sit, Truth is revealed !

UPANISHADS!  Actually, just every day when I come and sit here and utter that word, “Upanishads”, the way the truths are overflowing, verbalization becomes a big job!  Finding ideas is not at all a big job; verbalizing them has become a big job!

There are tons of books and tons of authors.  But, this book, Upanishads, to tell you honestly, if I have to put it a little poetically, the words feel shy to introduce Upanishads!  Words feel shy to introduce Upanishads!  If a child asks, ‘What is the size of an apple?’, you can show like this (Swamiji gestures with his hands).  ‘What is the size of a pumpkin?’, you can show like this (Swamiji again gestures with his hands).  If the child asks, ‘What is the size of the Planet Earth?’, can you show like this?  (Swamiji spreads his arms wide).  No!  This is not in any way signifying the size of the Planet Earth!  You can show, ‘This big!’  (Swamiji again spreads his arms wide).  But, that is in no way signifying the size of the Planet Earth!  That is in no way doing justification to the size of the Planet Earth!  Please understand!  So, what will I do with these words to introduce Upanishads?  I can only pull my mouth like this and say, “It is this big!’ 

The way they introduce you to you, the way they introduce the world to you, the way they introduce god to you, the way they introduce life to you, nothing can be compared to Upanishads.  Whether the purity of the substance they are delivering, or the poetic way they are expressing, or the very sound in which they have nicely embedded the vibrations of Kundalini awakening!  Upanishads not only have a linguistic and poetic importance, meaning, they have even phonetic importance.  Even phonetically they are important.  Actually, by the religious historians classifying Upanishads under Hinduism, they brought a great respect to Hinduism.  And, of course, Hindus are the inheritors.  It is our inheritance, no doubt.  But we need to live it and share it with the world.  It does not belong just to us.  Please understand, we might have been inheritors, but it does not belong just to us; it belongs to the whole universe!   (more…)
