Don’t live your default future !

I have seen some times, the spiritual seekers, till the end of their life, they only had their default flow of life; they never conquered, completed their Prarabdhas and rewrote their future.  Please listen!  That default flow of your life because of your root-pattern is “default future”.  That is there for all of you.  It is called “default future”.  The side-effect and the after-effect, and how your life will flow with these root-patterns, it is happening.  All of you have a default future.  If you completed with all the root-patterns and you are running your life, that is called “Prarabdha”.  The default future because of your root-patterns is called “Agamya”.  Root-patterns are so powerful, you are going to accumulate more and more suffering and karma that is Ágámya.  They are so incomplete, you are going to accumulate more and more incompletions.  The more and more incompletions you are going to accumulate, the more and more incompletions you are going to accumulate because of your root-patterns, and naturally they are not going to keep quiet, you will constantly accumulate more and more karmas.  That is what is Ágámya, the default future.  If you complete with all your root-patterns, the default future you will experience is Prarabdha.  If you complete with all your root-patterns and create a new space and re-write your future that is called “Eeshwarathwa”.  You conquer your own life.  Rewriting your future, rewriting your future is what is all about Inner Awakening.  This is the right one-liner for Inner Awakening: “Rewriting your future”. 

I wanted all of you to understand these few things.  Don’t live your default future! You default future is not going to help you.  It is not going to work. Don’t support your root-patterns to win over you. Don’t help your root-patterns to succeed over you.  Default future is what we call “Ágámya”.  And, when you complete with your root-patterns, the flow of your life is called “Prarabdha”.  Only when you re-write your future, you achieve “Eshwarathwa”.  Please understand, Jivan Mukthi comes only for the people who achieve Eeshwarathwa; because, for Jivan Mukthi, exhausting your Ágámya and Prarabdha alone is not enough, you have to complete even your Sanchita.  So, complete with your root-patterns, complete with your Prarabdha.  Completing with your root-patterns liberates you from the default future.  Liberating yourself from the default future is what is liberating yourself from disease, poverty, depression.  Continue reading →

Yogo Nashta Paranthapaha

Krishna….I tell you, Krishna is the most time-tested enlightened master, and Gita is the most time-tested teaching, because even while he was delivering, the listener is not ready to believe.  He has to go to the extreme of showing the Vishwaroopa to make the listener believe, to establish his identity, credibility.

 Bhagawan has to show Vishwaroopa thrice:

  • Once for Shishupala;
  • Once in the Kauravas’ Court; and,
  • Once for Arjuna.

 Of course, several times he showed he is divine:  When he liberated Karna; When he gave blessings to Bheeshma; and, The moment he took birth, to tell Vasudeva and Devaki, he showed his divinity.

 But, his Vishwaroopa he showed thrice.  If you see the timing, it is almost to make those persons understand who is standing in front of them, with whom are they playing.  Arjuna was so strong, continuously questioning.  Finally, Krishna has to show his Vishwaroopa to make Arjuna understand the principles he is teaching.  But, even then, in course of time, always this science gets lost.

एवं परम्पराप्राप्तमिमं राजर्षयो विदुः । स कालेनेह महता योगो नष्टः परन्तप ॥ 

“Evam paramparaa praaptham imam raja rishayo vidhuhu |

Sa kaaleneha mahatha Yogo nashtah Paranthapa || 

“This handed down thus in regular succession, the royal sages knew,

This Yoga, by long lapse of time, has been lost here, O Parantapa.”

 Please understand, in course of time, the tsunami of your regular incompletions takes away your strength of Completion and the qualities born of the space of Completion.

Please listen!  Just yesterday we handled one important situation where a few people have lost the power of Completion.  When the tsunami of incompletions is awakened in you….  Please understand, money, power, women, wealth, these all are not cause or reason for incompletion, be very clear!  Don’t beat the chair if you hate the person!  No!  Money is not a reason.  Power is not a reason.  Wealth is not a reason.  Lust is not a reason.  The only reason for the tsunami of incompletion is we entertaining those patterns.  We entertaining those patterns!  Because, the same money, I don’t see, is making somebody else incomplete, somebody else to do this same kind of activity.  So many Mahants were shocked, ‘How can people lose authenticity?’  It is possible!  Whatever pattern you are carrying, when there is a huge volume of cotton inside and the fire comes near, it catches.  If it is just banana leaf, it won’t catch fire.  So, whatever pattern you are carrying inside, that responds to the world.

If you are caught in the money, money pattern, money engram, when money comes in front of you, you lose everything, you lose whatever you know as you.  Same way, if you are caught in the lust pattern, the other gender is there in front of you, you lose everything, you just lose whatever you know as you.  If you are caught in the hunger for power, the moment power comes in front of you, you just lose everything.  You think, ‘Just this one decision I will compromise; then the power will be with me.  After that I will become authentic again.’  No!  Anything which comes to you by compromising Authenticity, will continue to be with you only if you continue to compromise your authenticity.  If money comes to you by compromising your authenticity, that money will continue to stay with you only by compromising your authenticity.  If power comes to you by compromising Authenticity, that power will continue to stay with you only as long as you continue to compromise your authenticity.  If money comes to you because of your authenticity, how many people ever try to take it away, they won’t be able to take it away!  HAHAHAHAHAHA!  If power comes to you, certain glory comes to you, certain grace happens to you because of your power of Authenticity, how many people ever try to disgrace you, it is simply impossible!  Impossible!

Recently I read an analysis and survey article on the Internet; means, the people who write articles after analyzing, surveying different data, the freelancers.  Of course, their articles are picked up in journals also, the print media also, the freelancers.  The article lists the people who are not shaken by the scandals and rumours and gossips, the top ten international celebrities who are not shaken by any of the rumours, scandals, who could not be disgraced by any happenings around them, who continue to be successful.  The eighth name is “Paramahamsa Nithyananda”!  HAHAHAHA!  They are stating, ‘These are the ten people, no rumours, scandals could disgrace them or could stop their lives.’  They don’t know the science.  They wrote by doing some analysis and study.  I am now giving you the science, the secret.  I am giving you the secret: If any money, power, anything comes to you because of your authenticity, it can never be taken away from you!  If grace happens to you because of your authenticity, it can never be taken away from you!  That is why I am saying, anything which happens after enlightenment cannot be snatched away from you by anybody, because enlightenment itself cannot be snatched away!

Listen!  Sometimes when people do some immoral, illegal activity, who were good earlier, when those situations are brought in front of me, this is the only reason I find – Yogo Nashta Paranthapaha!  In course of time, because of non-practice, the power of Completion gives way, and the tsunami of incompletion takes over you.  Understand, the power of Completion gives way, the tsunami of incompletion takes you over.  The power of Completion when it loses power, when the power of incompletion takes you over, please listen, you lose the very identity of you.  When you lost you, you lost everything, because now you have to be searching who you are.  Anything can be lost, but not who you are.  Listen!  Anything can be lost, but not who you are.  Losing who you are is too costly a missing.

In English there is a proverb:  If money is lost, nothing is lost; if health is lost, something is lost; if your character is lost – I won’t say “character”, I will say “authenticity” – if your authenticity is lost, everything is lost!  Why do you think in our Sangha I am so meticulous about even where you sit?  I always insist, let the Mahants sit in the front row, then Kotharis sit, then Thanedars sit.  I always insist.  You may be thinking, ‘Why?  What is there in sitting?’  You don’t know!  Everything matters for your authenticity.  Because, I have seen in Mahanirvani Peetha, the whole inner image of a person changes the moment he is initiated!  The moment he is given that seat, that gaddhi, he redesigns the concept about himself, he redevelops the concept about himself, he recreates about himself.  That is why this big….all these marks, bhasma, rudrakshas.  These all make you authentic to who you are, what you want to be, what you are, what you want to be, constantly reminding yourself and others, aligning yourself and others’ experience of you, Inner Image, Outer Image, Others’ Image, and Life Image, aligning all the four.  All these are required.  All these are required.  And all this reminds you and takes care you don’t fall from Yoga, Yogo Nashta Paranthapa does not happen in your life.  Let the Yoga not be lost.  Let the authenticity not be lost.  Let the Yoga be not lost.  Let the authenticity be not lost.

Listen!  In course of time, when people see money, when people see power, Yoga gets lost.  Sometimes, due to non-practice also, Yoga gets lost.  Means, operating from the space of Completion is Yoga.  Living and radiating the space of Completion, living and radiating the space of Completion is also Yoga.  Listen!  Yogo Nashta Paranthapa!  Completion is the only way you can get out of the lost life.  Please understand, unable to retain your inspiration is nothing but life lost.  Unable to retain the inspiration is nothing but losing completely yourself.

Just yesterday, I was telling a devotee, ‘When life happens to you, and if you feel you are smaller, you lose inspiration.  But ability to stand with life in all its power and glory is life.  Yogo Nashta Paranthapa!  Yoga is lost when you don’t stand to the life.  Understand, every night Completion will make sure the incompletions don’t settle down on you as a powerful layer, and, suddenly, one day, you need to wake up and complete the whole thing.  No!  Every night Completion!  Every night Completion, so that the incompletions does not settle down in you as layer, as sediment, incompletions don’t settle down in you as layer, as sediment.  Yoga…Yoga…Yoga means operating from the space of Completion.  Anything can be lost, but not Yoga.  When you allow the incompletions to take over, when the incompletions become more and more powerful, slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly but steadily, Yoga is lost.

I tell you, your every-day action is responsible either for extraordinary miracle or extraordinary accident.  Neither miracle nor accident happens over a second.  Neither miracle nor accident happens just like that.  No!  Whether it is the going up or going down, it happens because of your every-day activity.  Nothing comes as surprise, nothing comes as sudden.

Listen!  Listen!  Completion….every day when you practice Completion and fall asleep, your whole night Dreaming and Deep Sleep state aligns your unconsciousness to your life, to your authenticity.  Every day your Deep Sleep and Dream state supports you, supplying extraordinary powers to you, the next day to be more authentic.  Understand, unknown part of you is extraordinary powers of you.  If you take the blessings and support of the unknown part of you, it is extraordinary powers’ space.  Every night when you complete and fall asleep, the power of Completion, next day morning when you wake up you are there alive, your unconscious and sub-conscious supporting you to be more and more authentic….to be more and more authentic.  It is Authenticity, it is Authenticity that is life.  Authenticity, that is life, understand!

Bring Authenticity to your life.  It is Authenticity that is life.  Practice Completion continuously, and don’t lose living out of Completion, don’t lose your Authenticity, don’t lose your Authenticity.  It is unfortunate, human-beings lose their Authenticity, in course of time their inspiration, energy for Completion, to live in the space of Completion.  Listen!  Life happens, life happens when you continue to operate from the space of Completion.

If you know how Krishna happened and is operating, you will just merge in Him.

Janma karma cha me divyam evam yo vetti tattwatah;

Tyaktwa deham punarjanma naiti maameti so’rjuna!

Krishna says He who knows in true light MY divine birth and action, after having abandoned the body, he is not born again, he comes to ME.

Bhaktyamam abhijanati yavan yaskasmi tattvatah, tatomam tattvato jnatve visate tadanantaram!

Devoted to Me in the Truth, what and who am I, knowing the truth of Me, he enters into the Supreme.

Krishna is such an orator, who can verbalize the whole Truth in such an amazing way! Not just Bhagwan, God, Poornavatara who had Saraswathi in his tongue and Lakshmi in His hrudaya and Devi in his being, courage, Poornavatara. No, every time you read even one sloka of Gita, you see it clearly again and again, the most precise, the most sophisticated expression of the Truth as it is. Especially the Royal Sanskrit.

See, the Sanskrit also has a version which used by common men, the version which was used by Pundits, the version which was used by Rishis, the version which was used by Kings. Krishna uses the version which was used by Kings and Rishis, like the english of J Krishnamoorthi. The English I am using is more or less the english used by common men, or a little bit used by the masters like Osho, Vivekananda, but J Krishnamoorthi’s english is the royal English, used by the elite. The Tamil I use is the Tamil used by the elite. Actually, the Tamil I can play both game; I can be slang of village or rural slum or the rishis Tamil or Tamil of the siddhas or Tamil of the kings; but English is the common man’s, or a little bit masters like Osho or Vivekananda. Here the Sanskrit Sri Krishna is using is the Sanskrit of Kings, elite. Every time I read even one verse of the Gita, I just remember the personality Krishna would have been carrying, and the way He lived, which is the perfect blend of an amazing Rishi and an amazing King. If I have to compare, I can only compare with the Tamil used by Meenakshi; there are many verses attributed to Meenakshi, the songs and verses, I can be sure it is from Her only, just by the language, because she carries the language of the Siddha and Queen, the language of elite.

If you are not having wealth, you are working for poverty.

Wealth is not a thing to be created or managed. It is you. If you are not having wealth be very clear the flow of your very being has some serious flaw. Please understand.

Krishna says very clearly

“Gahano Karmano Gathihi”.

Life is work.

If you are not having wealth you are working for poverty.

You work for only 2 things in your life: either you work for wealth or you work for poverty. Find out how you are working for poverty and change the tendency to work for wealth. Poverty is sin, please understand.  Dump the statement: “Blessed are those you are poor that they go to heaven”, no. And even if they go to heaven, who wants to be in heaven where all poor fellows are sitting J , come on ! “Blessed are those who are rich, they live in Heaven”. This is a new testament, understand. Don’t make poverty and failure sacred. We have a very wrong understanding.

You see, grabbing wealth from others is wrong, but creating is not wrong. We have such a life negative idea, you see, may be when Jesus uttered that statement ‘blessed are those who are poor’, all the rich fellows have become rich by grabbing, not by creating. You see that tribal lifestyle is grabbing lifestyle that is why the only power they know is physical, brutally rob, that’s all. That is why always the king is supposed to be a fighter, not a thinker. So, He is addressing a civilization which is a muscle power based civilization. Naturally wealth means power, if you have power you grab others’ wealth. That is why, he might have said ‘blessed are those who are poor’, because they don’t grab others wealth. But it is wrongly understood, spread, poverty has become sacred.

Poverty has no sacredness.

Failure has no sacredness.

Your ignorance cannot be justified. You are not supposed to be shown any sympathy, if you are a failure or ignorant.

Whatever way you perceive you in your inner image, you will exactly attract those same people around you.

The science of Sri Vidya says each of those lotus petal, actually 16 lotus petal, then 8, then 43 triangles, then bindu; and below that 6 lotus petals, and 3 square lines. Now each of those energies revealing the ideal they represent; the satyas they represent. Maybe once the energizing process is over, when we connect everyday satsang and the whole Sri Chakra, we will know clearly which Devi represents which great Truth, Advaitha Satya, It is one of the greatest and most exciting Truth, because such powerful revelation, I was so excited, Listen! All of us are always in the space of Advaitha, whether you are completely unaware, unconscious, or you are in the peak of realization! Please listen. The practical implications of this Satya need to be understood.

See, if your inner space is in the mode of self-denial, you will have exactly the friends, family, people with self-denial only falling in your eyes, senses, perception. If you are in the mood of Completion, you will have only the people want to do Completion falling in your perception. Listen!

So, whether you are in the state of a devil, demon, bhoota, preta, rakshasa, mooni, kinnar, gandarava, aksha, rakshasa, rishi, whatever space you are in you are in Advaitha! So that can never be lost! If you are in the space of completely denying you, you will exactly perceive only those people who are also in self denial and denying you; you will be denying them, they will be denying you, both of you will be having a great Indian mother in law, daughter in law, relationship. Then, if you decide to Complete, suddenly everyone around you will be struggling towards Completion.

Understand, when you allow the higher intelligence of you to pull you up, raise you constantly, suddenly you will perceive Guru happening in your life, because your own part of you, which is constantly pulling you up, only allows the Guru to happen in your life and continue to exist in your life. Only then you perceive Guru in your life. If you are in the level of, “oh, he has stolen my 200 rupee, he may steal my plastic bucket,” you will only have only the people around you, in your perception,in your life style you will only have the people, who will steal your mug, jug, the cloth you kept without using, or the shampoo packet you hid under your pillow, you will exactly have only this kind of people in your perception. And, when you start perceiving, “oh, I will defame this fellow, I will destroy his identity,” you will see exactly that kind of people around you, who will be defaming you, and trying to destroy your identity.

Understand, listen, now I have to answer one of your important doubt: one of the devotee who came to see me was asking, “Swamiji, I am asking really, why did You come down to live with human beings?” I told her, “Relax, I am not living with you guys. I still have in My perception Nandi, Bhringi, Patanjali, Aghastiar, Rishis, Devaganas, Siddhaganas, only they are in My perception; I am around them only!” I allow the people with royal perception also to play with Me and evolve. Arunachala allows people to come up, Kailasha allows people to come up, but that itself does not come down to you! Kailasa doesn’t come down to your level, but it gives way for you to come up to Kailasa! I allow people to perceive Me from their perceptions, also. Continue reading →

Constantly perform responsible intense action with no clinging to the reward of performance.

IA Participant: Dear Swamiji, in Bhagavadgita chapter 5 verse 11 and Chapter 5 verse 12, the sacred secret is – ‘Constantly perform responsible intense action with no clinging to the reward of performance.’ My question is – I typically prioritise my business tasks by revenue; the higher the revenue, the higher the priority of the task. Is this verse 11 and 12 of chapter 5 applicable in the planning, execution, or both phases. Please clarify. Thank you, Swamiji.

Swamiji: Please understand, you doing the business tasks by the revenue, higher the revenue, higher the priority is perfect. Nothing wrong. But when you start calculating your whole life just based on the money or the revenue, that is where something is seriously wrong. At some points you may have to perform many actions which does not bring direct revenue but which brings fulfillment. For example, all the actions in your relationship, family; you may have to get a toy and give it to your child, you may have to give a smile to your spouse, you may have to give a hug to your friend,  don’t lose those dimensions.

Unfortunately if you put everything in the revenue sheet; toy is not a revenue, it is only an expense, a smile is not going to give you revenue, those things only I am saying, even when you need to do something which is related to your relationship which does not bring revenue, be responsible for it, be total in it. Otherwise you performing your actions, based on higher the revenue, higher the priority of task, perfect. Forget about you, even I perform like that only. That is the way life happens. That is the way life is. But you will see in me the same totality, and intensity when I perform all the actions which are not related to revenue, which are related to seva / service. When I conduct a medical camp or when I conduct some satsang or the mass programs, annadhan or any other social activities, social service activities which are no way related to revenue, you will see the same intensity in me. The prioritization may happen based on the revenue but the smile cannot happen based on the revenue.

See, after prioritizing when you start working, then forget about everything. It should be a complete total being.  You prioritizing, see.. if you are not prioritizing based on revenue you can be a complete fool. I have seen.. I have seen penny wise pound foolish fellows. They will save few pennies and lose not just pounds, millions of pounds.

In planning, do prioritize based on the revenue but when you execute forget about the revenue. Be total. Complete. Even planning as per revenue has to be done responsibly, intensely. When you execute perform intensely without bothering about the reward. See.. when I plan, I plan this, this, this, this, this. When I execute even if the reward does not come, I don’t bother. I go ahead, execute. Do it. Over.

In planning, do responsibly. In execution do responsibly without clinging to the reward of performance.

Lifestyle of Nithyanandites

IA Participant: “Nithyanandam beloved Swamiji, Once we return back to our places after completion of this Inner Awakening Program, I intend to continue my daily spiritual practices of Pancha Kriya, Nithya Yoga, meditation which is Nithya Dhyaan or eN-Kriya, Swamiji’s morning message or one youtube discourse, eN-chanting, ajapa japa, feeling connection, unclutching, Shakti dhaarana, healing, running satsang center activities. Can you throw some light on this if anything is inadequate? I hope your answer would help all IA participants of this batch and also IA graduates who have completed before.  At your lotus feet, M. Radhakrishnan.”

Swamiji: Actually it is a nice question. When you guys only read this, it looks like it will take a whole day. None of this is an action. Everything I made it as an entertainment for you guys. Don’t you understand, see, all you guys are now addicted to satsang. It is not that you force yourself into satsang as a spiritual practice. Understand, I made the whole thing as an entertainment. I wanted you guys to know, this Pancha Kriya, is along with your taking bath. Every day you brush, hope, see.. instead of brushing only the mouth you are going to take a few minutes and brush the nose also, nose and mouth. The whole ENT, it gets brushed. And not only cleaning your bowels, just have 2 minutes extra and add enema and clean it little more. That’s all. See, not just sweeping, and wiping also, mopping also, that is what is enema. Understand, what is enema? It is not that something you are going to do separately. Every day you guys clean your bowels, am I right? And along with that it is going to take,enema take 2mins? Maximum 5 mins, if you keep the can in the rest room itself, it is not more than 5 mins. I can’t describe more visually. And same way, every day you brush, see today morning I did my Pancha Kriya, hardly it took 5 mins. I brushed and then just put the tube, “Namashivaya!” that’s all, it was there in the throat, dagadagadaga..and then poured the water, that Ganga came out.

See..there is a story. Ganga was swallowed by Janhu Maharishi. He got very angry that in front of his ashram, Ganga started gushing  when Ganga came down and he felt his meditation was disturbed, he just swallowed the whole Ganga. Then Bhageeratha went and begged Janhu Maharishi, “Please, please, please release her. I brought her with so much of effort.” He said, alright and opened the ears and through ears she came out. That’s why she is called Janhavi. Ganga has one more name ‘Janhavi.’ So like that only. Just pour and Janhavi comes out the other side. Over. That took some 5 minutes. Nothing. So what is there in Pancha Kriya. It is hardly 3 minutes job and cleaning the eyes. Actually during the nose, these two process itself all the water will come out of the eye. Eyes get cleaned and finally you just need to wash it. And I tell you guys, 4 days only, 4 or 5 days I am doing every day, I can see the difference, the colour, the skin colour is changing. As I said, I don’t apply anything. It is just changing.

And you are asking about meditation, Nithya Dhyaan or eN-Kriya. You can do if you find time. Otherwise, when you sit in the morning satsang, the Pada puja with that feeling connection and the satsang, that itself is more than enough. As I said, morning message, you are putting the morning message. It is not a spiritual practice at all. It is just, I have made the whole thing entertainment. You are addicted to it. Otherwise, 1 o’clock in the late night, 2 o’clock in the late night, will you wake up and sit in front of the computer. Do you know, all the European countries it is night 1 o’clock, 2 o’clock. And if you have to come to the center you have to drive 1 hour and it is like a.. it has become more an entertainment.

And then you are asking eN-Chanting, feeling connection, unclutching. These three does not need a separate time. It is going to be just become a part of your very consciousness.

Healing – healing is like a power you have. If somebody has a problem, you can say, I am a doctor, I am a healer, come on, I will heal you.

Running satsang center activities – it is like making more friends, that’s all. Be honest. Running satsang center activity is nothing but making more friends who are in your frequency. So actually you create sangha not for me, but for you to have more friends, more companions to talk about ….tell me what other satsang activity goes on honestly other than talking about me. Come on, you think I am not there or what? You think my photograph is sitting and watching what you guys are doing? I can smell even the bonda you guys eat during the satsang. Satsang center means nothing but talking about me. That’s all. See the dress today. I can very clearly classify two group. Men satsang center which talks about my message, women satsang center which talks about my dress. No. that’s all. There is only two category. So what is there. Running satsang center activity means nothing but making more friends for you to talk who are in same frequency.

If I say some deep technical important sacred truths, all the men satsang center will be busy that day making calls. If I wear some new jewel or the new dress, some new outfit, all women satsang centers will be busy on that day with calls. God! Here I am getting a message. Few men who are offended, “we also talk about your dress.” I thought it is exclusive right, God! Women are also angry.. Anyhow so, that is why I say, you guys are Arthanareeshwaras. Men also talk about both. Women also talk about both. It means you are Arthanareeshwaras. So both your dimensions are fulfilled.

So, in this ten, what do you call as a spiritual practice? Nothing. All these 10 is simply your life style. Making the biggest spiritual practices into life style is work of an incarnation. Making hard work into a smart work is the work of CEO. Make hard spiritual practices as smart spiritual entertainments is work of an incarnation. Making hard work into smart work, making hard work as smart work is CEO’s job. Making hard spiritual practices into smart spiritual entertainment is Cosmic Enlightenment Officer (CEO). Actually when you read only it looks like a ten big points – PANCHA KRIYA, NITHYA YOGA, MEDITATION, MORNING SATSANG, En-CHANTING, FEELING CONNECTION, UNCLUTCHING, SHAKTHI DHAARANA, HEALING, RUNNING SATSANG CENTER ACTIVITY,.. When you see what? Just see.. morning when you brush, clean the nose; when you clean the bowels use the enema; over.. then come and sit in the satsang which is an entertainment, listen to all these jokes, make fun, laugh and especially if you are gathering as a satsang center, that becomes such a joy to see the same frequency community around you.

I also wanted to tell all our devotees, please understand, make this as a rule. Do not read media. Avoid media. Understand? Avoid negative articles by media. Completely avoid. You see, negative means 99% is negative only. Avoid media. Whatever you need to know is there in our website as a news. Just read that much. That’s enough.

Anything you want to know about us, Me, sangha, everything, now that we have a very strong news column in the internet, in our website. Go just to our official website, read that news column, that’s enough for you. Nothing else is required.

And if you are coming to the morning satsang, to a satsang center, you will naturally make friends, companions, over. All the other things, what is that – eNchanting, feeling connection, unclutching – it is a life style. That’s all. What is the last thing? Shakthi dhaarana. Night time when you fall asleep, hardly it takes 5 mins, I don’t know. Actually if you do few days,shakthi dhaarana, you will be addicted to that also. Because it just fills you so much and fall asleep. Over. It looks like a long 10 things. Just a life style.

What is running satsang center activities. When you are bored in your work place, just seeing email, or making some phone calls, for you to have entertainment. That is satsang center activity. That’s all is satsang center activity. Nothing else. What else is there? See, it is more like an entertainment. I think I answered what you guys need to do after the Inner Awakening. The question is answered.

Seeing is Completion

Questioner: what I’m beginning to notice about incompletion is that an inaccurate cognition can actually bring you to the next step in your expansion. So, it becomes a beautiful churning. So, what I used to do was, when I see an inaccurate cognition, I’d begin to hate myself or put myself down and then that would tie me up into more bondage. And now I see them, but they’re opportunities now. So that our expansion just becomes greater and greater. We start at as something insignificant’…….

Swamiji: When you see them itself, expansion starts. When you see them, all the incompletions melt away. Good! See, nothing other than seeing is required. Even if you see, they will all melt down. Seeing is Completion. Because you don’t see, I force you to see yourself in the mirror.

Questioner: I used to be afraid to see it. But now I see that it is beautiful, that the process is beautiful!

Swamiji: You feel the process is beautiful because it brings a beautiful YOU out of YOU! Great!

What is sacred about marriage?

Questionnaire: Nithyanandam Swamiji ! I’m going to ask a question after explaining about my doubt, I talked to my group here. This is about the, on the western side you have got the one day marriage, overnight married. They get married overnight, they fall in love and get married, and in India according to the Vedic tradition, we go around the Agni and all the rituals we do; and some of the current day -children born out of wedlock. So my question is, ‘What is sacred about marriage?’

Swamiji: Shall I give you a very straight answer?

The Cosmos does not recognize marriage.

That is the first thing.

Second, whatever you respect, if you keep that as a witness, that respect you have for that ideology becomes the sacredness for the marriage.

For example, I respect only one thing in my life – Arunachala. I don’t respect anything else. It is not that I disrespect, but in my heart if you ask me ‘What do you respect?’ it is Arunachala. If I give any commitment saying ‘That Arunachala is my witness I commit with you’ that’s it! I‘ll give my life to fulfil it! I’ll do everything and fulfil it. Because now what I respect as the most sacred thing in my life, I put that at stake! Same way, when you get married, if you respect fire as the most sacred…..

In our Hindu tradition, Vedic tradition, fire was the most sacred deity; even the stone deities are only next to Fire. A god has to be invoked first in the Fire which is visible. See, HE is in the Space; then HE is brought to Ether through Visualization; then HE is brought to Air through Verbalization – mantras; then HE is brought into the Fire. In the Fire only, first HE becomes visible to us; from Fire HE is invoked into Water, and from Water to the deity. That is the Kumbhabhishekam process.

So, in the Vedic tradition the Fire is considered very sacred. So, if you keep Fire as witness, and in front of Fire you declare the oath, that sacredness which you have for Fire is attributed to the marriage. Marriage itself is not recognized in the Cosmos. It is not recognized in the Cosmos. It’s almost like how you give a commitment that every day you will come for Yoga; and if you miss one day, you complete it! Same way, that level only marriage itself is recognized. Even in the Akashic Readings, Kaalabhairava has said marriage is not recognized in the Cosmos.

But, I am telling you, marriage solves a lot of unnecessary problems. Now you are stuck with only one problem!

HAHAHAHAHA!

All other problems, neither you have time to go and create all other problems, nor the other person allows you to create other problems! HAHAHAHAHAHA! So it is like a powerful possessiveness of the problem not letting you create another one problem, because if you create another one problem, this one problem cannot possess you. So, I don’t think that without marriage you will be with less problem. I tell you, marriage is okay; marriage is okay, because in many ways it reduces the number of problems you’ll create for yourself! You will be stuck with only one problem which is much better! So I do not think any sacredness is there by its own commitment level. So, let me just explain this problem once for all.

Man, by birth, is physiologically polygamous, psychologically monogamous. Psychologically he is capable of handling only one relationship, loving, responding, and taking responsibility and all that. Psychologically he does not have the capability to be polygamous. Physiologically he is polygamous, but psychologically he is monogamous. So, to solve the problem, either you should make your psychology into polygamous, or your physiology into monogamous. Making psychology into polygamous is very arduous, almost impossible. So, the best thing is making your physiology monogamous. So, to bring that kind of alignment, to bring the maturity, marriage has been started. I am not supporting your psychologically becoming polygamous or physiologically becoming monogamous. I am not supporting, and I am not opposing any of these. I am just stating the scientific facts, the inner science facts; facts of the inner science. Maybe we will be having one full day session on this one subject, ‘why so much of struggle in marriages’.

As I said, the world’ largest institution is ‘marriage’. And the world’s most cheated institution is marriage! 

No, it’s true! Even Mahadeva cheated on Parvathi, I have reference, I can give you evidence! You can’t use the word, ‘cheating, cheating’, because they are gods, but in human level it is cheating only! Alright, we should not use the word ‘cheating’, because a personality like Mahadeva never cheats nor is He hypocritical.

Anyhow, marriage itself does not have sacredness by its own act, but it gets sanctity by the witnesses you bring, by the evidences you bring. If you bring Shiva as a witness and say, ‘I’ll get married keeping Shiva as witness…’, then it becomes sacred now; that’s it! So, you should always be very careful not to have any witness or evidence when you get married! But, that is not the moral of the story! It is the people who are there as witnesses, their sacredness is attributed to the sacredness of the marriage; that’s all! Mahadeva is so intelligent. Vishnu did not come as a witness for His marriage, He himself became Vishnu and got married to Meenakshi.

You are not the doer, your incompletions are

Questionnaire: ‘According to the Upanishads, we are not the “doer” where we do our job at work. How can we detach ourselves from the doing and just work as a service for the world that God created? If I am not supposed to have a desire to succeed in my business, and have pride, what will motivate me to do it? And, how can I detach myself from this desire to be successful?’

Swamiji: I will read the question. ‘According to the Upanishads, we are not the “doer” where we do our job at work. How can we detach ourselves from the doing and just work as a service for the world that God created? If I am not supposed to have a desire to succeed in my business and have pride, what will motivate me to do it? How can I detach myself from this desire to be successful?’

I think, just now I answered your whole question. Your question: ‘According to the Upanishads, we are not the doer where we do our job at work. How can we detach ourselves……?’

Please, I wanted you to understand the first statement you made, ‘According to the Upanishad, we are not the doer.’ You need to understand that more. You will understand that statement only after the Completion process. Only after the Completion process you will understand that all this while you were not the doer, your incompletions were the doers, your incompletions were making you do what you were doing. When the Upanishads say, ‘You are not the doer’, they mean your incompletions are the doer. But unfortunately, people started thinking God is the doer. No! When you are told “you are not the doer”, it means the doer in the wrong person, not the doer in the right person. It is so unfortunate!

One guy asks his friend, ‘Why are you not wearing your wedding ring in the right finger? Why are you

wearing your wedding ring in the wrong finger?

The guy replied, ‘Yes, I am married to the wrong woman!’

HAHAHAHA….!

No, really! You have a wrong understanding! It is so unfortunate, when the Upanishads say “you are not the doer”, complete with who thinks is the doer, destroy the doer. But, unfortunately, you start thinking God is the doer! No! So, you need to understand this statement of Upanishad much deeper. Neither you are the doer, nor God is the doer, because you are God! Your incompletions are the doer. So, complete. Let your incompletions which were the doers, let that die. Then you will understand you have a great zeal to be successful in Enriching! Now, as long as you feel you are the doer, means your incompletions are making you believe you are the doer, you will not have success in anything you do, and you will not be able to detach from the doer. And, even if you try to detach from the doer, you will only fall into depression; you will not have motivation to do anything else.

Please understand the complications involved in the whole situation you are describing.

First thing, you can’t detach yourself from doing. Your incompletions are such it does all the crime, but it puts you into suffering. It won’t take responsibility. Completion is such, it makes you do all the good, but it gives you the benefits. The doer is the incompletions. Your incompletions are the doer. Please understand, your incompletions are so powerful, not only it does, but it puts you into suffering for all his actions. Completion is such, it gets all the pleasures, but makes you enjoy the results. Understand, incompletion is such, it does all the crime, it pushes you to do all the wrong things, but puts you into suffering. It doesn’t take the responsibility. Completion is such, it makes you do all the good, but gives you the benefits. 

Incompletion does not trust even itself. Incompletion has deep doubt about itself. And incompletion always leads to more and more complications.

Your whole question will be answered on its own if you enter even a little bit into Completion. Sometimes, even the surety of incompletion leads you to more problems. See, incompletions sometimes will be so sure, it leads to more incompletions. In the incompletion moment, you strongly believe this disease is going to come to you. You will see that incompletion brings the disease!

I have a story:

There was a trial happening in the court for murder. A defendant was on trial for murder. There was a strong evidence indicating guilt, but there was no corpse. In the law, the dead body is very important.

Corpse is very important to prosecute.

The defense’s closing statement, the lawyer, knowing that his client would be probably convicted, resorted to a trick saying, ‘Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury, I have a surprise for you all.’ The lawyer said as he looked at his watch, ‘Within one minute, the person you all presumed dead in this case, will walk into this court-room!’, he declared. And he looks towards the court-room’s door. The jurors, shocked, stunned, all looked on eagerly, all of them were looking at the door. A minute passed….nothing happened.

Finally, the lawyer said, ‘Actually I made up this previous statement, but you all looked on with anticipation. I, therefore, tell you all that you have a considerable doubt, a reasonable doubt in this case as to whether anyone was killed at all and insist that you return a verdict of “not guilty”.

The jury really got confused and they retired to deliberate. A few minutes later, the jury returned and pronounced the verdict of “Guilty”!

The lawyer asked, ‘How, but how can you say? You must have had some doubt. I saw all of you stare at the door!’

The jury foreman replied, ‘Yes, we all looked at the door, no doubt. But your client did not!’

Sometimes, the surety, the sureness of your incompletion itself puts you in more problem!

 

Life has no pleasures other than Enriching!

Questionnaire: ‘If Enriching happens by an incomplete person, it doesn’t really reach people. It might help the Enricher but the other person might be going away instead of coming. Should the Enricher be completely complete before enriching?’

Swamiji: “Completely completing” will happen ultimately only with enlightenment. So understand, Completion, Enriching, both are not supposed to be done one after another. Both are supposed to be done simultaneously.

Please understand, in Patanjali’s Yoga, there’s a word called “Ashtanga Yoga” – “Eight parts”. Somehow, unfortunately, all the English Yogis have translated this as “Eight steps of Yoga”. That one small mistake the“anga” word. “Ashta” means “eight”; there is no controversy. This “anga”, instead of translating that word as “parts”, it has been translated… – Not even word, word “parts”, too superficial. Anga word should be translated as “organs” because they have not translated this “anga” as “organ”, instead of organ they translated that as “step”, the whole Yoga tradition has become useless in the West. It has become just small few techniques or the methods to make your body flexible and little health. That’s a disgrace done to Yoga.

Please understand, when you get a diamond and use the diamond just as a vegetable cutter, vegetable cutter, it’s a disgrace to diamond. Same way, when you use such a great power, powerful science just as technique to bring little health. No. It is so unfortunate just that one mistake done by the Max Muellerians, means followers of Max Mueller, trying to translate Hindu scriptures just to destroy Hinduism, not for making the world realize the greatness of Hinduism. In my Sampradaya, in Nithyananda Sampradaya, nowhere the Max Mueller or Max Mueller translations should be accepted as a reference text book. I am banning Max Mueller and Max Muellerians translations of Hindu scriptures. They have done the translation more to abuse the Hinduism, not to make people understand Hinduism. This Max Muellerian translation of the word “Ashtanga”, instead of “the eight organs of Yoga”, it has been translated “eight steps of Yoga”. Over! And people are struggling with the second step and third step – Yama, Niyama, Asana. Over! No one crosses beyond.

Yama is “Integrity”, Niyama is “Authenticity”. Please listen, Asana, Pranayama, Pratyahara, Dharana is “Responsibility”. Dhyana and Samadhi is “Enriching”. Continue reading →

Every action has its own reaction

Questionnaire: ‘Swami, kindly clarify whether the statement “Every action has its own reaction” clarified by Swami during the last satsang.’

Swamiji: I wanted to allow this statement with a new understanding: Every reaction carries its own action. Please understand, because you do not know what is action till you achieve completion, all your so-called action is nothing but a reaction of incompletion. So, every reaction has its own action. “Every action has its own reaction” is not a complete statement. Every reaction has its own action, or re-reaction. All action you do out of incompletion is reaction. It is not action. Till you complete, you do not know how the space of action will feel. So, whatever you call as reaction, whatever you call as reaction is nothing but action. Understand, it is nothing but action. Whatever you call as action is nothing but reaction. Whatever you call as reaction is nothing but action.

You may say how the reaction can create action? When it is chaos and something happens after you do something, it can be called only as action. Because, many a time, your reactions don’t cause the reactions you want. It means something else is acting. That has to be called only as action, because it is not the right reaction, your reaction expected. How many of you are getting it? If it is a reaction as you planned, it can be a reaction.

Most of the time, because your action is a reaction of your incompletion, the reaction of your reaction cannot be called as reaction, because it does not bring the reaction you expect. So, it has to be called as action. The reaction to the reaction is not the reaction you expected. So, naturally it can be called only as action.
