I welcome all of you with My love and respects. I’ll enter into the 2nd verse of Kenapanishad.

śrotrasya śrotraṁ manaso mano yadvāco ha vācaṁ sa u prāṇasya prāṇaḥ |

cakṣuṣaś-cakṣur-atimucya dhīrāḥ pretyāsmāllokād-amṛtā bhavanti || 2 ||

Understand, the most sophisticated of answering a question is, giving you the methodology you will find experience, the most sophisticated way of answering a question is as an answer giving you a methodology, through which you will find, the experience.

śrotrasya śrotraṁ manaso mano yad |

The whole verse is not giving you any point you can hang around, any visualization, any possibility for imagination, no. It’s very clear. Your pure questioning is turned towards you; your pure questioning is turned towards you. Listen, pure questioning is one of the most powerful way of integrating you.

Pure questioning is one of the most powerful way of integrating your intellect, mind, emotion, thought currents, everything, body. (more…)

Upanishads are not do’s and don’ts but the thought currents you need to cherish, enjoy, entertain for higher intelligence to happen in you!

Introducing Kenopanishad. Somebody asked me, “Human beings are just developed monkeys, but how we are able to perceive so much about the Universe, Planets, Space? How we are able to understand so much about all this? Why other animals, even the closest version of us, chimpanzees, are not able to catch, understand things about Universe. Why human beings are able to understand perceive, even manipulate, as we want? Already we have space stations, some of the big rocks coming towards the Planet Earth we can blast it or redirect it from there itself. Already we are able to manipulate movements in the space. How?

Please understand, because only human beings started asking the question – keneśitaṁ – by whom? This Upanishad is responsible for keeping one of the most important, powerful thought current responsible for human intelligence. Please understand, few of the thought currents responsible for why human beings are the way they are. Listen, few of the thought currents—why the human beings are the way they are.

The first thought current—“Who am I?”

Second – “What happens after death?”

Third, most subtle, most precious, most important thought current—“What is the source of all this?” What happens after death? — that thought current was kept alive in the humanity.

Please understand, no Upanishad is a conclusion.

I wanted you to understand this Truth. Neither Isha nor Kena, or Katha, or Mundaka, or Mandukya. No Upanishad is conclusion. That’s the beauty. Seeking thought currents consolidated for further research is Upanishads. Understand, it is not answer. The whole Isavasya Upanishad you won’t get a single answer. These are some of the thesis proposed, some of the thought currents needed to be cherished, pondered upon, thought about, those thought currents will give you 1000 question 2000 answers. But those thought currents need to be kept alive; for your next generation they may give 10,000 questions and 20,000 answers. (more…)

Mahadeva revealed Upanishads to Ramachandra Prabhu, Lakshmana and Sita under the Banyan Tree in Bidadi Nithyanandeshwara Temple

This number 18 very significant in Vedic tradition – Bhagavad Gita 18 chapter, Mahabharat War 18 days, all the major temples, whether it is Sabarimala, Madurai Kallazhagar temple or the Engoi Mallai  – always 18 steps and the 18 akroni Sena fought the Mahabharat war. 18 is very significant number, but all 18s came after this Isavasya Upanishad’s 18 verses. This is the first 18; because, please understand, Ishavasya Upanishad is the first Upanishad.

Rama, listen, Rama when He lived in Ramanagaram, received all the 108 Upanishads at a time from Mahadeva under our Banyan Tree, and after the victory when He came back, He brought, see after the victory and He came back, he had Pattabhishekam and he brought Hanuman and showed all the places He traveled. They had a vacation tour. At that time, Hanuman also came to this place, and then again sitting in Ramanagaram, that hill, Rama put the whole 108 Upanishads names together, what He received from Mahadeva and repeated to Hanuman, that is Muktikopanishad.

Please understand, whatever I am saying is Fact, Truth and Reality from the Cosmic archives, the Akashic Records sooner or later you will find evidences for this. (more…)

I will continue to expand on Ishavasya Upanishad. Please recite along with me.

hiraṇmayena pātreṇa satyasyāpihitaṁ mukhaṁ |
tat tvaṁ pūṣann-apāvṛṇu satya-dharmāya dṛṣṭaye || 15 ||

 The Truthful, Effulgent, Eternal Being is the ultimate sustainer, nourisher and protector of all that exists! You are the embodiment of the imperishable Truth and Reality. Your Divine face of Truth is concealed by the blinding dazzling upturned pot, which has golden orb of effulgence. This radiant golden pot conceals your glorious face of Truth from my view. O Pūṣan, O Sun, O Complete One, do reveal Yourself by removing that glaring veil, for I, on the path of Truth, am eager to have your Divine vision.

Understand, there are tons of things you need to understand to understand this verse.

First of all, when the human beings started seeking. Please understand, origin of seeking is from Sarasvati-Ganges civilization. Just recently some of the western historians jointly gave a statement – the Greece civilization is a complete hoax created to put down the Ganges-Saravati civilization, just to distort the history because they do not want the credit to go to Ganges civilization. So the hoax called Greece civilization was invented. Seeking started in Ganges civilization. Understand, when the seeking started how human beings responded, how human beings reacted, how they expressed when the seeking started expressing in them; when the experience of seeking started in them.

Two important truths I want you to learn.

First, the Vedic way of living, Vedic lifestyle starts with peace, ends with peace. All the knowledge we generated, please understand, we had everything and much more what modern science has produced now. Whether it is jet plane, rocket, missiles, nuclear weapons, chemical weapons, we had everything and much more in Vedic age, Vedic era, but we were very clear – it’ll only be for peace, it’ll only be for peace. Understand, we start peace, end with peace; whether it is rituals, ceremonies, teaching, knowledge transmission, everything, everything, knowledge is only for peace.

Only one big crime the modern day Hindus did, they think – peace is important so let’s avoid conflicts.

No!

By avoiding conflict you will never be in peace. By avoiding conflict, if you try to be in peace, naturally the other forces will push you, push you, push you to the corner till you become non-existent. Avoiding the conflicts is not methodology for peace. Right methodology for peace, facing it, solving it.

May my limbs, speech, vital life-energy, eyes, ears, and all the senses be fully matured and be enriched with strength and energy!

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

Spirituality, Upanishads

Extreme harshness of reality or extreme pleasantness of reality leads to your awakening!


No Comments

Before entering into the verse, I want to explain some basic truth about Seeking, which is explained in these verses.

See if I explain the basic concepts, the truth expressed in this verse will be more experiential for all of you. When you are tired of dreaming or you can’t handle dreaming anymore, you decide to wake up. If there is a nightmare, if there is a fantasy dream, where the dream becomes too sweet, or too harsh to handle, then you wake up. Same way, the waking state, if you make it too sweet or too harsh, you will become awakened.

Making it too harsh, becoming awakened, is the lifestyle of renunciation.

Making it too sweet and waking up, is lifestyle of devotion.

Listen, I will repeat. In the dream state, if you see two tigers are chasing you or two snakes are chasing you. If it’s harsh to handle, you will wake up. Same way, if it is too fantastic, exactly the same place you always want it to be is there, the same person with whom you want to be is there, you will suddenly wake up. If it is too sweet, you will wake up, too harsh, you will wake up. So that dream state is sustained in the struggle, not in the extreme, listen, only in the struggle, the dream continues, not in the extreme. 

Same way, in the waking state, if it is extreme sweetness, you will wake up or extreme harshness, you will wake up. But as long as there is a struggle between these two, the struggle between the extreme sweetness and harshness, greed and fear is what your incompletions. As long as there is a struggle you will continue to maintain this waking state. This state you will continue to maintain. If any one takes over, it’s all over.

Allowing the lifestyle of extreme harshness and awakening, getting awakened is the lifestyle of renunciation, A Naga, Aghori. Allowing the extreme sweetness and awakening is the lifestyle of devotion, a Shaivite. Using both of process and getting awakened is the lifestyle of Nithyanandite.

I use all available, possible methods, process, kriyas to help you into awakening whether it is nightmare or fantasy dream, you will wake up. You will wake up. You will wake up.

Understand, neither fantasy dream nor nightmare will let you continue sleep. Same way, neither extreme harshness nor the extreme sweetness will help you to continue your waking state. It will lead to awakening, it will lead to awakening.

I tell you, if life itself brings the harshness and awakens you, if life itself brings that sweetness and awakens you, you will be wasting a lot of time. You voluntarily getting into that state, cooperating for your awakening is what I call Seeking. It is not that every night you wake up with the nightmare or fantasy dream. Many nights you wake up because you are too tired. 

Understand, same way in your life also, it is not that all the time you can get the extreme harsh dream, harsh reality or extreme pleasant reality. Creating either extreme harshness of reality or extreme pleasantness of reality leads to your awakening. Cooperating with the life to create the extreme harshness or extreme pleasantness is Seeking.

Either with the concept of Shiva you can make every moment of your life extremely pleasant. You know this is the place Sadashiva walked, this is the very air He breathed, this is the very forest He and Devi spent so much of time. Every tree here is the descendent of the trees which had the fortune of having darshan of Sadashiva. Still the moon and the sun is a living witnesses. You can go on cherishing this and get into the extreme pleasantness that will lead to awakening or you can deny everything including your own existence and that will lead to extreme harshness, again you will be awakened.

Use any one, cooperate with any one. Allow the awakening to happen. That’s all is essence of life. That’s all is essence of life. 

Your self-doubt, self-hatred, self-denial neither allows you to experience extreme harshness or extreme pleasantness.If you go through pleasantness, you doubt it. “No, no, no. This cannot be permanent or eternal.” If you go through harshness, you build a hope, “No, no. I will get out of it and I will have pleasantness, joy one day.” The hope stops you going through the extreme harshness. Doubt stops you going through the extreme pleasantness. When you don’t allow both, continue to enjoy your struggling state, incompletion; because only that will maintain your ordinary waking state. 

Sleep is the base material out of which the dreams can be dream. Confusion is the base material out of which this waking state can be perceived. Only when you are in the state of sleep, you can dream. Only when you are in the state of confusion, you can see this waking state. 

Understand, that is why confusion is very precious investment for you. It is one of the most precious investment. Most precious investment! But I tell you, let confusion not become your most precious investment. In every step, every line, every inch of your life, if confusion becomes your basic stand, basic foundation, then imagine the amount of time you are wasting, energy you are destroying.

There is a beautiful verse in the Taitirriya Upanishad:

anando brahmeti vyajānāt (3.6) 

Bliss is God, don’t waste it. 

You may think, what do they mean by don’t waste it. Don’t waste it by attributing it to your confusion. If you think confusion is bliss, if you maintain the stand that confusion is bliss, you are wasting your life, destroying your life. You are wasting the bliss, destroying bliss. anando brahmeti vyajānāt. 

See your day-to-day habits get recorded in your muscle memory. Your lifestyle patterns, like what you feel about you, all that, gets recorded in your bio-memory. Cleaning up your muscle memory can be done by building good habits, nut cleaning up your bio-memory – what do you feel about you consciously, can be done only by awakening the Seeking. Awakening the seeking. 

Listen carefully to this statement, to this truth. Seeking either leads you into extreme pleasantness or extreme harshness of the Reality. In both ways, it awakens you. Whether you get into completing your individual existence or whether you get into expanding your individual existence into cosmic existence.

If your individual existence becoming cosmic existence by devotion it is called Upāsanā. If your individual existence becomes nothing by allowing the cosmic existence, it is called Vipāssanā. In both extreme, you are awakened. Whether Upāsanā or Vipāssanā, you will be awakened. But go through any one extreme, only then, you will be awakened. Don’t continue to play in the field of confusion you will continue to be just in this dilemma – waking state. Dilemma destroys your dignity; takes away your respect for yourself. Dilemma destroys your dignity; takes away your respect for yourself.

sambḥutiṁ ca vināśaṁ ca yastad vedobhayaṁ saha |

Somebody asked Buddha, “Buddha, how you see your Sangha growing in the future?” He says very beautifully, “if my Sannyasis are able to inspire the truth of imperishable on the Grihastas, what I want will happen. The other way, if the Grihastas are able to inspire the Sannyasis about the perishable, it will happen as they want”. Understand, very simple word. Even in our Sangha, I can just shout out names, straight away I can shout out names. Instead of Sannyasis impressing, inspiring the people about the imperishable, Grihastas have inspired the Sannyasis about perishable. Of course, ultimately one truth is how much of perishable is inside you, how much of imperishable is inside you, that decides whether you are going to be a Sannyasi or a Grihasta. That’s the truth.

It is your strength and the amount of imperishable you worship, the akshara, undying component of you which is the strength. (more…)

sambḥutiṁ ca vināśaṁ ca yastad vedobhayaṁ saha |

vināśena mṛtyuṁ tīrtvā sambhūtyāmṛtam aśnute || 14 ||

 Just recite. It’s the 14th verse of Isavasya Upanishad. I will give you the translation.

One who cognizes the pure essence of these both—the imperishable consciousness, the cause of manifestation and the destructible, the perishable, manifested entities, simultaneously—such a person completes with the fear of death and transcends death by worshipping or by knowledge of the perishable entities; and reaches the imperishable consciousness; celebrates the nectar of immortality and bliss, the eternal space of oneness.

Now listen. It’s the literal translation I have read out. The key word in this whole Upanishad, you need to understand. What Upanishad is trying to convey it to you. Listen.

Listen intensely what Upanishads are trying to convey through this to you. The first thing, the key word — what you are worshiping in you life. Please understand, here worshiping does not just mean in front of whom you bow down, in front of what you bow down. What you think as goal of your life. What you remember again and again. Please understand., you may be bowing down in front of Shiva deity for money, then you are worshiping money. Whether it is right or wrong, don’t bother now, first let us diagnose, understand –

what you are worshiping in your life?

You may bow down in front of any God, Goddess, Guru, but what you think as the essence of your life, what you think as the lakshya (goal) of your life, that is what you are worshiping. (more…)

I will expand on the next verse of Isavasya Upanishad. 15th verse of Isavasya Upanishad.

hiraṇmayena pātreṇa satyasyāpihitaṁ mukhaṁ |
tat tvaṁ pūṣann-apāvṛṇu satya-dharmāya dṛṣṭaye || 15 ||

The Truthful, Effulgent, Eternal Being is the ultimate sustainer, nourisher and protector of all that exists. You are the embodiment of the imperishable Truth and Reality. Your Divine face of Truth is concealed by the blinding dazzling and upturned pot, which has golden orb of effulgence. This radiant golden pot conceals your glorious face of truth from my view. O Pūṣan, O Sun, O Complete One, do reveal Yourself by removing that glaring veil, for I, on the path of Truth, am eager to have your Divine vision.

hiraṇmayena pātreṇa satyasyāpihitaṁ mukhaṁ |
tat tvaṁ pūṣann-apāvṛṇu satya-dharmāya dṛṣṭaye || 15 ||

Please understand, before entering into this verse and commenting on it, I wanted to set the context, the key ideas, the key truths, sacred secrets, the Upanishadic Masters are trying to reveal through this Upanishad. Seeking. Understand, this whole verse describes necessity, power of seeking. Seeking is not what you call as religion or spirituality.

Please listen. Much of your religion and spirituality is just business and bargain, gambling, give and take, negotiation in the silence. Sometimes vocally, sometimes locally, sometimes silently, but negotiation goes on, goes on, goes on. Sometimes with that rough stuff of heaven and hell. Sometimes with the subtle stuff of love and hatred. Sometimes the more subtle feeling connected or feeling rejected, but much of your religion and spirituality is business, bargain, negotiation, gambling. Seeking does not fall under any of this category. (more…)

sambḥutiṁ ca vināśaṁ ca yastad vedobhayaṁ saha |

vināśena mṛtyuṁ tīrtvā sambhūtyāmṛtam aśnute || 14 ||

Listen. Understand. Cognize your existence, cognize the existence of the life, universe, God, everything with the larger vision. Listen, why you do what you do? Why you think the way you think? – should be based on larger vision of life not just an immediate ‘agitational gratification’. Please understand, all your so-called luxury, the sensory pleasures are agitation gratification. Please understand, the agitation you feel in the tongue you gratify it with the food which destroys your health, but gives you temporary gratification. (more…)

I will enter into Isavasya Upanishad, thirteenth (13th) verse. Please chant along with me.

anyad-evāhuḥ sambhavād anyad-āhur-asambhavāt |

iti śuśruma dhīrāṇāṁ ye nastad vicacakṣire || 13 ||

 Translation goes:

It is said that from the worship of the imperishable Consciousness, the cause of manifestation [sambhavāt] certainly a different result is attained. And it is said that from the worship of the manifested, perishable entities [asambhavāt] such as gods, spirits, ancestors, a very different result is attained—thus we have heard the revelation from those wise beings who explained that absolute principle to us.

Listen.

What should be your goal? What needs to be worshipped? What should be the ultimate cherished object of you? — that question is being analyzed and answered here. Listen. What should be the cherished goal?

Please understand, whatever you cherish as goal is only worshipped by you. Worship does not mean the few minutes you bow down or the aarti (offering light to divine) you show or the food you offer. Worship means what you constantly remember as highest possibility for you; what you constantly remember as completion of you; what you constantly remember as possibility of you. If you think money will bring fulfillment to you, money fulfills you, naturally money is only worshiped by you. Even if you worship any God in any form you are worshiping for the sake of money. So money is only worshipped in this form. If you are worshiping Lakshmi for the sake of money, you are actually worshipping only money not Lakshmi. Lakshmi is only, as long as she is the embodiment of money. Suddenly if Lakshmi decides – “I am not going to disperse money to people who call upon me”, you will stop worshiping!

So understand, if you are worshiping Saraswati just for knowledge, you are only worshiping knowledge. Whatever you think as the fruit of your life, whatever you think is needed for your completion whatever you think is needed for your fulfillment, what you think as the better half of you, the other part of you… Listen. In one of His teachings, Ramana Maharishi says very clearly – it is very difficult to feel the spirituality, the social conscious awakening is what is required for you to feel fulfillment, because most of us never become sensitive enough to perceive the ultimate truth as it is. Understand our perception always gets stuck. (more…)

Ishavasya Upanishad is the first and foremost Upanishad on which I was commenting for some time ago and for various reasons morning satsang got postponed, now it starts again to continue. I’ll expand on the 11th verse of Isavaysa Upanishad. So please repeat along with me the 11th verse:

vidyāṁ cāvidyāṁ ca yas tad vedobhayaṁ saha |
avidyayā mṛtyuṁ tīrtvā vidyāmṛtam-aśnute || 11 ||

I will read out the translation.

The one who cognizes the pure essence of these two – vidya and avidya – simultaneously, that is knowing the true and complete knowledge of consciousness and doing the actions from the sacred cognition of consciousness, thereby through avidya crosses over and transcends death and through vidya, experiences and celebrates the nectar of immortality and bliss, the eternal space of oneness with Consciousness.

Listen. Recognizing the karma pattern in which you are stuck, thought current in which you are stuck, and deciding to liberate yourself from that thought current is Vidya. Recognizing karma pattern, thought current in which you are stuck and breaking from that, having a breakthrough from that thought current.

Please understand, your decision, your decision to change you, your decision to have a breakthrough in your thought current is required basically to have any breakthrough, and have liberated thinking.

Understand some of these basic truths. (more…)

Always establish yourself by contribution, not by throwing tantrum

Anything in my hand let me play with it. That is the only way I will prove my existence. Your existence is proved by your contribution not by your ability to throw tantrum. Please understand the people who are not able to contribute, try to prove their existence by throwing tantrum. I am not talking only about male or female, any side. In general humanity, trying to prove your existence by throwing tantrum is one of the biggest stupid mentality we accumulated, we acquired. Understand, free fall from your authentic identity is hell. Wake up to the reality of the free fall happening in you. You will suddenly know that you have to take up a serious action to stop it, to stop it.

Look in and do not try to establish your identity by throwing tantrum.

Establish your identity by contribution, by enriching. I don’t know how much I can make you guys believe, how much I can… how much you guys will be able to believe. I have seen my own Mother, she is still alive. I have….I am seeing her now for last 37 years. It’s not that she was always only in the high in her life. She was born and brought up to a very decently established family. I can say the…her fa… parents are upper middle class people. I heard in those days that was the most organized and largest wedding happened in that whole village. She had that kind of a background. But, my father was not that rich and he could not maintain even the wealth given to him by my grandparents. But throughout last 37 years, I am seeing her. I have not seen her even once trying to establish her identity by throwing tantrum. I just feel blessed that I am carrying her bio memory. (more…)

Luxurious lifestyle takes away the strength of your body and mind to reinvent itself with the flow of life

I’ll continue to expand on Kathopanishad. Yesterday I was speaking about the story Vajashravas, King who is feeling insecured and was asked to do a fire ritual from the Vedas, but started doing without understanding the context his son Nachiketa questions. This is the story. I will now try to expand the sacred secrets hidden in this story.

The first thing: king getting into the mental setup of business or bargain, shows the identity crisis happened to him, please understand. The king is the person or at least he is expected to be a person—either lives with powerfulness as a giver, giver, giver or collapses and disappears from us. Please understand, king is not expected to be eternal, but he is expected to be powerful, as long as he is there as king. He can’t afford to get into the mental set up of a Vaishya, businessman.

Same way, a person of knowledge he is not expected to be a giver, nobody expects a person of knowledge to be doing charity, but he is expected of a high standard of Consciousness, highest standard of Consciousness. He is expected to constantly share the spiritual knowledge — live, remember, share the spiritual knowledge. He can’t afford to commit even a small mistake. King in the war can kill even those few innocent people who are not directly involved in the war. He won’t incur a big sin because when there is a war naturally there will be innocent deaths, but a person of knowledge, a Brahman cannot even kill an ant. Even an ant cannot be killed by him. So from each persons the anyakara of society, what society expects, the role they need to fulfill in the society is different. So the identity collapse. Inauthenticity entering into the identity, the identity crisis is what Gita describes as jāti naśta, intermingling of castes, getting impure.

Please understand, because the ancient time the jāti was based on the mental set-up, not just based on your birth. Vishvamitra by jāti is a Kṣatriya [warrior], but he is always remembered as the highest Brahmana. He is respected as Brahmarishi by Vashistha. Understand, each one need to maintain their role.

I will expand on Kathopanishad, the introduction story. Please understand, it’s a very beautiful story, the introduction story.

There was a time aliens were not aliens to us. Please understand. When your mind divides, divides, divides, even the other country people are called aliens. No, this is the extreme stupidity some of the so called developed countries call the other country citizens as aliens. The abusive nature and arrogant nature. See, I am not saying that what India is suffering by the Bangladeshi invaders, that should be allowed. No, I am not supporting that. See, if someone wants to come from Bangladesh and live here, be part of our society, I don’t think I have any right to oppose. But when they come here, try to harm our villages, run a riot, do criminal acts, then we have all the right to protect ourself. But no way we have a right to give them the title ‘aliens’. We have no right to give the title ‘aliens’.

There was a time when we were so vast in our heart. The Satya Yuga, even aliens were not aliens, they were able to smoothly, easily come and go. We were able to go to their space and come. That was the time this story happened, where a seven year old kid can straight walk up to Yama’s abode …Yama comes, showing his form clearly. Aliens were not aliens in those days. I hope again, the same space will come back. (more…)

This great Upanishad, Kathopanishad, Upanishads are the essence of Vedas.  Among the Upanishads, Kathopanishad is Upanishad shiromani, Upanishadasikamani means it’s one of the best Upanishads because the subject it deals is Death.

Please understand, with right understanding Death can become rejuvenation energy, energy which will rejuvenate you.  Don’t think death is always a curse, when you don’t understand, it’s a curse. Actually when you don’t understand even Chiranjeevatva, eternal life is a curse, do you know the Chiranjeevis of the world Prahalad, Markandeya, Hanuman, Ashwathama, in all these Chiranjeevis, Ashvathama was cursed to be Chiranjeevi. Please understand, Ashwathama Chiranjeevatva is not a boon for him, that he will never die is not a boon given to Ashvathama, it was a curse given to him.  Just imagine you are never going to die, you will literally be swallowing tons and tons of depression pills and boredom pills, if you don’t understand life, the life is not understood, life is a curse.  If death is not understood, death is a curse.  If you understand both, I tell you, every time death happens it is a possibility for you to rejuvenate and take a new body. Kathopanishad talks about death, so many secrets about death and how you need to live your life to understand death, have liberation when natural death happens to you. (more…)

It is said that by vidya, the knowledge cognized from the right context of grasping the truth, Consciousness, and the superficial knowledge acquired from the wrong context of grabbing without cognizing the subtle truth certainly a different result is achieved. Similarly it is said that by Avidyā, the authentic actions and the ignorant actions, a very different result is achieved. Thus have we listened from those wise beings who have explained that absolute principle to us.

Essence. The sacred secret, the key truth from this verse—the context you set for you, please understand, the context you set for you before entering into action or life is more important than your decision of entering or not entering into life or what you do or don’t do in life.

Listen once more.

The context you set before entering into life is more important than what you do or don’t do in your life. Context, if you set the context of Bhakti, your travel becomes pilgrimage, food becomes prasada, water becomes tīrtha, ash becomes bhasma, music becomes kirtan. Man becomes human. Understand, setting the context is much more important than the action, commission, or omission of acts, doing something or not doing something. Doing something or not doing something is not that important than the context. (more…)

Listen, every moment the happening in you, means your Life. Listen carefully..Life. You may be marching towards your goal to achieve something in the outer world or inner world or you may just be confused and stuck. Whatever, but Life IS happening to you. Please understand, even feeling confused and getting stuck, is Life happening. Sometime people feel, you are not even letting us live in confusion and depression little bit. Understand, confusion and feeling stuck, is Life happening. Life happening. So, in this happening of Life, whenever you change the game, like the rules with which you need to play with the matter, if you play it with Consciousness; the rules with which you need to play with Consciousness, if you play with matter.

A ship is very safe, most secured in the port, when it docked, whatever, but it is not created just for that purpose. Understand, if you always decide based on law of life — if the ship is parked or locked in the port, it is very safe, most secured. Yes, no doubt! But the purpose of ship is not just being docked in the port.

Law of life is only teaching about the most secure things. Flow of life is exciting, adventurous, innovating, opening up different possibilities. (more…)

I’ll continue to expand on The KatoUpanishad Santi Mantra, please recite along with m

Aum  Sahanā vavatu | saha nau Gunatthu | saha vīryam karvāvahai| tejasvi nāvadhītamastu mā vidviṣāvahai ||

auṁ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ

Understand, listen , I will read out the meaning, translation and then expand on it.

Aum, May we both together be protected, may we both be nourished and enriched, may we both bring our hands together and work with great strength, energy and enthusiasm. May our study and learning together illuminous both with the sharp absolute light of higher intelligence. So be it. May we both not have enmity or incompletion with each other. Let there be peace, peace, peace. Let there be peace in my inner space, peace in nature, peace in divine forces.

Listen.. The context of the Indian education system, how the education in vedic tradition existed, how it was happening . The other day I was reading letter to British parliament. He writes to British Parliament, I went all around this country, north to south, east to west, I have not found a single person who is lying, who is telling lies, I have not found a single beggar- understand, I have not found a single beggar, I have not found a single person lying, People are so fulfilled. I few want to rule this country, we have to break their back bones. Their strength , their education.. I will read out the exact letter..it is addressed febraury 2 nd, 1835,

I have travelled across the length and breath of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is the thief, such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such high caliber that I do not think that we would ever conquer the country unless we break the very back bone of the nation which is the Spiritual and cultural heritage and therefore I propose that we replace her old ancient education system , or if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, lose their self esteem, their native culture, and they will become what we want them, truly dominated nation.

Understand, understand the strength of Indian education system. This was Macaulay’s address to the British Parliament on 2nd febraury 1835.

Anyhow, understand the value of Indian education system, what kind of human beings and society we produced. Listen.. Only when the education is producing the human beings of higher Consciousness, it can be called as education. Not just some skills or talent, set of skills and talent does not make you  educated, as i said, uneducated are those who are educated only in schools… uneducated are those who are educated only in schools.

Please understand, in any civilization, any culture, any country, any society, if there is peace, there is a lot research and development. Fortunately, we are the civilization naturally protected from all sides. Three sides ocean, one side large hills , mountains which can never be crossed with ordinary efforts of human beings. This natural protection gave a tremendous peace to this Ganges-Saraswathi civilization. Civilization between Saraswathi and Ganga,  that is why war was never a mainstream activity of Ganges Saraswathi civilization.

In any civilization, whatever they feel as their greatest achievement, mainstream life, lifestyle, they build monument for that purpose. If they think, waging war and killing people is their mainstream lifestyle and purpose, they built monuments of warriors, people who are , who lost their lives in the war, or people who won the wars, monuments are built, war memorials are built, monuments of the victorious kings are built. If they think whatever human beings think is their greatest achievement, essence of their society, they build monuments for it, so that the future will remember them through those monuments.

Please understand, that is why I am saying, the Ganges-Saraswathi civilization, the Indus valley civilization, the Hindu civilization, waging war was never a mainstream activity for us. It was always only for defense and self protection. You may ask, how, how I am coming to this conclusion. Look at the monuments we made through out the country, not even 2 percent, war memorial or the kings emerges victorious after war. 95 percent of the monuments we built are monuments for education, 3 percent is for great educators and teachers. Understand, all our Temples are not monuments of some war victory, it’s a place for education in memory of the great teachers and educators, it’s a Samadhi of Siddha’s, not monument f great kings, Only 2 percent is monument of great victorious kings or war memorials.98 percent is for education and  great educators , teachers. Understand all the temples are built for siddhas, great educators. Based on the monuments, you can understand, what was highly respected in that civilization, in that society.

I was also reading the Agama shastras , the science of building villages and cities, everything was centered on education, knowledge and teacher . That was really surprising….warriors were only a small part of a society, given a very small place of security job, that’s all, mostly their job is security job, or attending, serving during any natural calamity. That was their regular routine. I am not saying we never waged wars..we were , waged wars, no doubts,  that was not our mainstream life style activity. There was so much peace, so much of research, development, so much of knowledge , knowledge creation and spreading, so much exploration of space under the water, under the earth, into the fire, so much has been done, so much knowledge was available, even whatever is left out unimaginable, unmatched humanity may take at least take 5000 years to catch up with this vedic knowledge. To catch up with our education system, they may even take 10000 years.

Understand the statements that I am making are not out of ego, arrogance, self pride or anything. I am simply stating the facts,., simply stating the facts ,simple truths straight away. We put so much of attention on Arjuna becoming a greatest warrior and emerging out of Gurukul, but we forget , from the same Gurukul, Sahadeva emerges as the greatest astrologer in this war. A whole department of astrology was functioning in that same Gurukul. But, we were so glamoured by Arjuna emerging as the greatest Archer, Bheema emerging as the greatest wrestler, we forgot Sahadeva emerging as the greatest astrologer. Understand even to be a greatest archer, you need the knowledge from multiple other disciplines. If you see the monumets of a country, what we bulit, what we revered, what we respect, what we want to be, what we want to remember and  how we want to be remembered, what we want to remember, how we want to be remembered by our next generation.  All these aspirations were centered on education…..All these aspirations were centered on education. So much of knowledge on physical health, mental health, Consciousness, powers of consciousness,, so much was available. Our education system, our Gurukul system,   making human beings, should again become the mainstream education system…. Should again become the mainstream education system. Please Listen, When I read this Santi Mantra, I can see very clearly, the context of the Indian education system which was always towards higher and higher intelligence.

Sahanā vavatu | saha nau Gunatthu | saha vīryam karvāvahai

tejasvi nāvadhītamastu mā vidviṣāvahai || auṁ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ

May we both together be protected, may we both be nourished and enriched, may we both bring our hands together and work with great strength, energy and enthusiasm. May our study and learning together illuminous both with the sharp absolute of light of higher intelligence. So be it. May we both not have enmity or incompletion with each other. Let there be peace, peace, peace.

When ever I read this verse, again I fall in love with the education system, our Gurukul system. What a powerful beginning, where Teacher and Students together say, seethe context, no where Guru is claiming, I am going to teach you, you are the Student, nowhere , He is demanding obedience from the disciple, no where disciple is made to feel that he is new. Actually, there is no psychological ragging here. The ragging starts from the Teachers. Please understand, in any educational system, in any educational institution, ragging starts from Teachers. It’s the teacher ‘s who feel insecure about the new fresh vital energy coming inside, they want to make the statement, Ai.. you are there..(down) We are here..(up).  It is they, the way they behave, makes the senior students set a trend. Ragging starts from so called Professors, Teachers, Principals in any educational institution. They just want to illogically bulldoze and make a statement, be there…(down). Not even one aorta of ragging here, he says very beautifully, may our study and learning together. Because our masters know these Apoushyas, Vedas has multiple layers of meaning. Even if the Teacher is teaching Vedas for 50 years, 51st year when he opens the manuscripts again, when he opens the palm leaves again and reads the same line, he may click with a new meaning. Because he knows it is from Aakashic records. So he is teaching from that humbleness, May our study and learning together illuminous both , please understand, illuminous both with the sharp absolute light of higher intelligence, sharp absolute light of higher intelligence. I think the Teacher should have this pace, this context.

The Teacher should have this context, this space. Each one of this line introduces our education system and the context on which our system was evolved. Next statement, May we both not have enmity or incompletion with each other, because they are going to live together, understand, Guru and disciple are going to live together, so not having incompletion is very important. See , if you don’t live together, like this modern day, non involving narrative education system, where there is no living together, there is no involvement with each other, then the possibility of incompletion itself is not there. But when you live together, not to have incompletion is very important. Teacher can always establish his superiority and let disciple not have incompletion. But he is not doing it, this is, it’s very clear, please understand, by the authority you can never make somebody without Completion.

Only by your Authenticity you can make others Complete, never by authority, it is by Authenticity. Whether it take times, months, years, it’s only by the other person realizing the Teachers Authenticity, Guru’s Authenticity, he becomes Complete. Completion cannot be achieved by authority ,it’s only by Authenticity.

Let me enter into Kathopanisad, the Shanti Mantra. Please recite the Shanti Mantra along with me.

au saha nāvavatu | saha nau bhunaktu | saha vīryam karvāvahai |
tejasvi nāvadhītamastu mā vidviāvahai ||
auśāntiśāntiśānti ||

Listen! The whole concept of Indian education system, how it was, how it should be – in future – how it was and how it should be in future. Please understand, whenever I am glorifying the past, I am not indulging in it, I am visualising it for the future. Listen! If the past makes you more and more powerless, you are indulging in it. If it makes you to decide to build your future again and again, it is vision. It is vision.

Understand, all you need to do in your life, all you need to do to make what you want as reality. Looking at the right past, that gives you courage, hope, to relive it, to recreate it, the real future. Here the word ‘past’ I use should be understood not from the context of your past, but from the context of collective past. Understand, whenever I am describing about Vedic tradition, I am describing the glory of the collective past created by enlightened masters. I am not talking about your past. (more…)

How constant dying, which is happening in all of us – if it is approached violently, arrogantly, negatively – turns into pain and suffering. If is it approached with the mood of listening passively how it leads to transformation.

Listen. By your very nature, you are Living Consciousness, how much ever you try to frame you into certain ideas and ideologies, for the sake of convenience of your everyday life. Please understand, if there is fire in this hall, you have to run out. This frame is perfect to have. If there is an earthquake, you need to leave the hall, go to open space. This framework is perfect to have. Nothing wrong in it. These frameworks, rules, understandings, regulations are good to have in the outer world. Like, you will sleep only in your house. These are all good to have, but it is so unfortunate, you start putting framework for you inside. Like first time when I feel powerless at the age of 7, how I responded, I will respond the same way till the age of 79, whenever I feel powerless – is a bad framework.

Listen, understand the difference. If there is a fire, you need to run out of this hall, is a good framework to have; nothing wrong with it. If there is earthquake, you need to leave this hall, it’s a good framework as far as the outer world is concerned, the frameworks are okay because matter functions based on death, decision and frameworks.

Listen, matter, the external matter, because it is already dead, it functions only based on certain law of life. It does not have flow of life. Listen, it has a Dharma, it does not have Yama. (more…)

We will enter into the Ishavasya Upanishad, third shloka:

असुर्या नाम ते लोका अन्धेन तमसाऽऽवृताः । ताँस्ते प्रेत्याभिगच्छन्ति ये के चात्महनो जनाः ॥

Asurya naamathey lokaa andhena thamasaavruthaah | Thaagumsthey prethyabhigachchanthi ye ke chaathmahano janaah ||

I will expand on how, saying “NO”, impacts you and others, and how, saying “YES”, inspires you and others. 

Listen!  Always, “NO” to life is said out of ignorance.  Always, “NO” to life is said out of ignorance, unconsciously.

  Listen!  Whether it is an individual level, or level of social leader, political leader, or decision-maker, any level…. 

I hear in the newspapers, in the Internet, again and again, the various scams at the level of decision-makers in various countries.  The politicians or the bureaucrats, just for the sake of the bribe they get, they are compromising the health of the common man.  The second quality, not THE very best things, is made available to the common man just because some money they get as bribe.  Whether it is in the field of pharmaceutical drugs, or even in the field of food industry, THE best is not made available to human-beings, common mass; the quality is reduced.  Sometimes even dangerous, risky things are done; sometimes, knowingly, dangerous things are done by paying some bribe to the bureaucrats or politicians or officials.  They also, just for the sake of that money, accept the money and allow this.  These are all “saying NO to life”.  Listen!  But, unfortunately, this stupid fellow who accepts the money, he also does not enjoy.  He stores it, stashes it in some tax haven in some remote island, which he never enjoys till his death.  So, for something which he is never going to enjoy, he is saying “NO” to so many people’s lives, understand?  (more…)

I will expand on Ishavasya Upanishad sixthverse, sixth sutra of Ishavasya Upanishad.  

यस्तु सर्वाणि भूतान्यात्मन्यॆवानुपश्यति ।

सर्वभूतॆषु चात्मानं ततॊ न विजुगुप्सतॆ ॥

Yasthu Sarvaani Bhoothaani Aathmanyeva Anupashyathi |

Sarva Bhootheshu Cha Aathmaanam Thatho Na Vijugupsathe ||

“One who, indeed, lives by seeing as it is all existing beings in the Self, Consciousness itself, and the Self within all existing beings, thus does not feel violated by virtue of not separating oneself from anything existing.”

Listen!  Now the Upanishads are concentrating on one declaration, one truth: The perception you have about you.  See, the stuff out of which you are made, if you believe you are made of stuff hundred percent only with this bone, flesh, blood, then you can never conquer death fear.  Please understand, there is nobody, nobody, including Mahadeva, who is carrying the same flesh, blood, bone, physical body forever!  Even he assumes the physical body whenever he wants, wherever he wants, newly!  Only the bio-memory is same; biology is not same.  Only the bio-memory is same; biology is not same.  If you think you are just biology, just this flesh, bone, body, biology is enough to describe you completely, everything about you can be known just through the biology, if you stop with that, if you think that is the truth, be very clear, you will never realize the possibilities of life.  And, one of the biggest life-denial statements is – ‘You have only one birth’ – I tell you!  The biggest life-denial statement given to the Planet Earth, worst belief human-beings are pushed in is: ‘You have only one birth.’  That happens because of the idea you are just this physical body, biology is enough to explain everything about you.  No!

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।
तदन्तरस्य सर्वस्य तदु सर्वस्यास्य बाह्यतः॥

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:
