Please listen! Anything which you don’t understand in life, where your logic is not ready to penetrate, be very clear, it is simple incompletion which your logic does not want to see. Listen! Anything in your life which you don’t understand, which you are not able to grasp, is the incompletion which you don’t want to look into. Your consciousness by its nature, its swabhaava, is “Swayam Prakaasha”, by its nature, self-effulgent, “Swayam Prakaasha”, self-shining. So, there is no such thing which you cannot understand in life. Whether it is which graha (planet) moving where, which star moving in which direction, or how to use your remote control and operate the TV in front of you, or the various aspects of the electronic gadget which you newly bought, anything, please understand, anything, your logic is “Swayam Prakaasha” to locate, to look. Whether understanding a Law book, or understanding a musical instrument, or understanding some truths about Botany or Biology or Zoology, understand, the truth is, your consciousness is self-effulgent, “Swayam Prakaasha”. This is the principle I am directly applying and proving in our Gurukul, don’t you see?
None of our Bala Sants had training or coaching in any field. None of their teachers know more than what they know. That much I can guarantee. None of their teachers know more than what they know. But they go on excelling in so many things, and they will go on excelling in so many things. This will be the new brand of education in the world, Nithyananda brand of education where the basic principle is not you need to be told or educated, but you need to look in or concentrate your self-effulgence, your “Swayam Prakaasha”. If you are not able to understand something, it is your own incompletions, you don’t want to look in. Understand that at least. At least know the right reasons for your powerlessness. You can complete and get out of it.
Your ignorance is not inability; it is your decision not to look into that truth.
Please understand, never label your ignorance as your inability. No! Every problem, you should do a right post-mortem, so that you can avoid it the next time. Every accident, we should do the right post-mortem, so that we can develop a system to avoid that later. Don’t say, ‘Oh, after all he is dead. What is there? Leave it!’ No! Do post-mortem and learn the lessons. Same way, every problem you have, do post-mortem and have the right intelligence. Do post-mortem and have the right intelligence. Do post-mortem and have the right intelligence.
Your ignorance is not your inability; it is your decision not to look in, your incompletion, your decision not to look in. Understand, your decision not to look in is your ignorance. I wanted to repeat it. Your ignorance is your choice. At least have the right understanding about your wrong understanding. If you have the right understanding about your wrong understanding, you can complete it. Why you don’t want to look into something is second; but know very clearly, your ignorance is the area you don’t want to look in, not your inability to look in. Please understand, when you understand there is no zone you don’t want to look in, there is no incompletion, your pure self-effulgence is fully alive and ready to look into anything and understand anything, no incompletion stops you, you are “Sarvajna”. Understand, “Sarvajna” does not mean he KNOWS everything; it means he CAN know everything! Understand the difference. This is one of the biggest confusions Hindus go on entertaining, infused by the stupid western intellectuals.
We have so many Sarvajnas who existed in our tradition, all-knowers. They established so many Sarvajna Peethas. Western intellectuals always questioned, ‘If your ancestors were all-knowers, Sarvajnas, why they didn’t invent train?’ So many questions they ask. First thing you should know, it is not that they have not invented; it is that they have not patented, that is all! Second thing you need to know, you should understand the context properly, the meaning of the word “all-knower” properly. It means, they can know anything they want.
When Ubhaya Bharati asked Shankaracharya about the secrets, knowledge about physical relationship, he didn’t immediately have that knowledge, but he could straight get it. He could send one ray of his energy into somebody’s body and see the whole action, science, what happens in and out, and was able to explain the whole thing to Ubhaya Bharati. Understand, it means being a celibate by birth, but not out of any incompletion towards sex. He is simply able to look in! It means, he does not have any incompletion. He has not become a celibate because of any incompletion. He has not become a celibate because of any incompletion. HAHAHAHA! That is the beauty of brahmacharya in Vedic tradition….brahmacharya in Vedic tradition. If he has become a brahmachari, celibate, due to some incompletions with sex, he cannot straight look into that science and answer Ubhaya Bharati’s questions. The moment Ubhaya Bharati saw Shankara, the motherliness in her was awakened. Like Meenakshi, representative of Meenakshi, the Pandya King’s wife, Mangayarkarasi, when she saw Jnana Sambandhar, immediately she felt the motherliness. Mangayarkarasi was basically from the Chola Kingdom. She was married to the Pandya King. Ubhaya Bharati, even though she felt that motherliness, she somehow wanted to win against Shankara for the sake of her husband. The moment she put the question, simply Shankara was able to look in, see Kashi Raja’s body. He sent one ray of himself into Kashi Raja’s body.
Understand, the pure consciousness, when you don’t have incompletions and want to look into, you can just look into any one person’s brain, or look through any body. Usually, that is what I do. If I want to have knowledge about any subject, I will pick up that book, just concentrate on the knowledge of that author, the thought-trend of that author, download it and absorb, and throw that. Not for pride, even now I tell you, I challenge, get me any book in the world, whether it is about Astrology, Astronomy, Gemmology, Zoology, Botany, Biology, Law, anything, in a few hours I will give you the essence, the thought-trend of the whole book! Because, in Vedic tradition, when you don’t have incompletions, you can look into anything, you can know anything.
Not having incompletions to know anything is what we call “Sarvajna”. I will make Sarvajnas out of my kids! No, really! I am making this huge library just for my kids. Actually, I don’t want to teach anything in the Gurukul other than language. Just teach them language by the age of six, seven, and leave them in the library. Let them master the science of knowing anything they want. They just need the consciousness without any incompletions. Means, the idea, ‘I can know this’ should be developed in them, that is all. I tell you, fortunately I never went to school and learned these teachers’ incompletions and stupid mentality. Stupid fellows go on teaching impossibility to kids. Means, by making it so difficult, saying that you have to read line by line, and after that do this, this, this, this, memorise, and saying that memorising is difficult….! Making it like a monster! Just because they have to have power over the kids, they exploit the kids by teaching the kids that knowledge is difficult. I will show the world that knowledge is just like breathing, as easy as breathing! But these stupid teachers made even breathing as difficult! They have not left anything easy! Like pharmaceutical companies and doctors made health as difficult as possible! These psychologists’, psychoanalysts’ associations go on discovering, every fourteen days, fifteen days, one disease they discover just to have more and more people covered under their fold. Same way, stupid so-called teachers go on making knowledge as difficult as possible. I will produce Sarvajnas out of my gurukul kids and teach the world how simple knowledge is!
Still when I remember, my eyes become watery. These village men and women who are my gurus, both my gurus – Yogananda Puri and Vibhootananda Puri – what an extraordinary intelligence they were having! From the beginning, they were so clear. See, by being around them, automatically I picked up this attitude of “anything I want to know I can know, anything I wanted to do I can do”. This was not taught systematically to me, please understand. Like how in our ashram if you live, you will simply get the confidence to do Completion and Nirahara Samyama because every other person will be doing Nirahara Samyama, every other person will be sitting and doing Completion. You will not have neck pain to wear this big mala, because every other person will be wearing! Just things are in the air! See, there are some things which are not taught; you pick it up from the air. With both my gurus, it was so amazing, just in their air I picked up, in their presence I picked up that if you want to know anything you can know simply, if you want to do something you can do simply! I never knew, whether it is swimming or climbing a hill or anything, human-beings need to be taught! I always thought, if you want just jump and do it! Not just this swimming and trekking, but everything.
I still remember one day I went to Mataji Vibhootananda Puri and told her, ‘In the temple such a beautiful deity is there! It is so nice! I want like that!’ She said, ‘You make it!’ I did not even ask how. And, immediately, from my neighbour I got one mould of Lakshmi and made a clay mould out of it. I didn’t get any other metal other than a few aluminium plates from my mother. I asked her, ‘Give me some waste metal.’ She did not know what for I am asking. She had some four-five aluminium plates. She said, ‘This is useless. Take it.’ She thought I am going to give it to some sadhus for begging. So she said, ‘Take it.’ I immediately brought that and melted and poured the mould and made the deity. Still we have the deity that was done by me personally by my own hand. And then, after the mould, I cleared it and I myself carved it. I was hardly a twelve-year-old boy! I did not even have a second thought! When I made it and took it to my guru, she said, ‘This is your Lakshmi!’ This ability to look into anything, and the space of Completion to look into anything, and no incompletion about anything, simply possibility! Everything is doable….and do it! Not only doable, do it!
Blind spots are not inabilities; they are choices. Thinking that blind spot is inability is “Karma”. Understanding it is a choice is “freedom from Karma”. Don’t even know about inability and possibility, and simply you are living, making everything possible, is “Vikarma”. I neither knew it is difficult for some people, easy for some people; I simply did it like breathing, like living. Still we have that Lakshmi deity with us. When I went and told, ‘That deity is so beautiful! I want like that one deity!’, she neither discouraged me nor she started explaining how to get it. She said, ‘Make it! You can!’
I tell you, having the clarity, having the clarity that anything is possible, no blind spot is our inability, it is only our choice, is “Sarvajnatwa”. Have this clarity: anything is possible and everything is possible. Understand, you are nothing but a bunch of your patterns. You can work and remove those patterns. Your strong belief about yourself – ‘I cannot do anything’ – all that are just patterns. Mostly you do not even have the patterns of ‘I cannot do’, but ‘I do not want to do’, your violence towards yourself and life. Mostly, I can tell you, it is your violence that you do not want to do. Complete with that and get rid of it. Life will celebrate you. Life will shower on you. If not, go through what you have to go through! What to do?
