Anejadhekam Manaso Javeeyo Nainadhdheva Aapnuvanpurvamarshath
अनेजदेकं मनसो जवीयो नैनधेवा आप्नुवन्पुर्वमर्षत्
I will enter into the verse where God is introducing himself, Consciousness is introducing himself, Consciousness declares about itself. It is “Unmoving”, “Oneness”, “Swifter than the mind”.
We had Vaakyaartha Sadhas on “Anejadh” (अनेजद्). Then we had on “Ekam” (एकम्) – “Oneness”. Now, “Manaso Javeeyaha” (मनसो जवीयः). You can’t have Vaakyaartha Sadhas on “Manaso Javeeyaha” (मनसो जवीयः), because, it says, ‘Swifter than the mind’! Before even you start talking, it has already gone! Slipped! Before even you imagine, it is beyond that! It is like the fight between Russia and America who will reach the moon first. So much fight! So much money spent! After one cheating the other secretly, finally man lands on the moon and starts walking. Two Nairs from Kerala are saying, ‘Chai! Chai! Chai! Chai!’ – selling tea there, understand? HAHAHA! How you will feel? That is exactly the way! How much ever you imagine, visualize, using the mind, and finally reach that space, Consciousness is already there even before you imagined!
“Manaso Javeeyaha” (मनसो जवीयः) – “Swifter than the mind”! “Swifter than the mind”! You cannot have Vaakyaartha Sadhas about it, because, anything your mind talks, it is beyond that. So, “Swifter than the mind” if you want to have Vaakyaartha Sadhas, you will have to just sit.
“The gods of senses cannot overtake!”
Understand, “Thishttath Thasminnapo Maatharishva dhadhDhaathi” (तिष्ठत् तस्मिन्नपो मातरिश्वा दधाति) – “Remaining situated, it outruns all other running ones, mind, speech, senses. In it, the life energy, Maatharishva (मातरिश्वा), moves and expands itself, supporting all activities”, understand?
“Thishttath Thasminnapo Maatharishva dhadhDhaathi” (तिष्ठत् तस्मिन्नपो मातरिश्वा दधाति) – “It outruns all the running ones. In it, the life energy moves and expands itself, supporting all activities.”
May be the second line – “Thishttath Thasminnapo Maatharishva dhadhDhaathi” (तिष्ठत् तस्मिन्नपो मातरिश्वा दधाति) – can be today’s subject for Vaakyaartha Sadhas. “ThadhDhaavathonyanathyetha Thishttath Thasminnapo Maatharishva dhadhDhaathi” (तद्धावतोऽन्यानत्येत तिष्ठत् तस्मिन्नपो मातरिश्वा दधाति)!
“It is Unmoving, Oneness, Swifter than the mind. Gods of senses cannot overtake and go beyond it as it has swiftly moved ahead. Remaining situated, it outruns all the other running ones.”
Listen! “Remaining situated” means, remaining stable, it outruns everything, all the other running ones – mind, speech, senses. Please understand, “running along with the mind” and “outrunning the mind” is just competition, competition, competitor. But, here, Upanishad declares very clearly – “Remaining situated, it outruns everything”. Means, it is there; but wherever your mind, speech, senses run, it is there also! With the normal mind if you try to think, it will look a little crazy. That is why, in Hinduism, so much of craze is there for being told as “crazy”.
Let us come to the sutra:
तद्धावतोऽन्यानत्येत तिष्ठत् तस्मिन्नपो मातरिश्वा दधाति
ThadhDhaavathonyanathyetha Thishttath Thasminnapo Maatharishva dhadhDhaathi
What is it that can outrun mind, speech, senses, everything, but remaining situated? What is it, in that, life energy moves and expands itself? “Maatharishva dhadhDhaathi”(मातरिश्वा दधाति)! Listen! This word needs to be understood. “Maatharishva dhadhDhaathi” (मातरिश्वा दधाति) means: “Life energy moves and expands itself”. This word very clearly needs to be understood. This word declares immortality of all of you! Everyone! See, immortality of the person who has realized he is immortal, is already declared. But even the people who have not realized they are immortal, even their immortality is declared in this verse, because, the Upanishads says very clearly, ‘Consciousness is the space where life energy, “Maatharishva” (मातरिश्वा), moves and expands’. It does not say ‘where it dissolves or dies’. No! Understand?
You moved and expanded, moved and expanded, moved and expanded, never took birth or died.
Understand? The same vast land, because each one is putting the fence, it becomes different, different, person’s land, group’s land, nations’ land. I will tell you the secret. Same way, in your life, the idea of birth, youth, old age, and death, this corruption of fencing happens, because of the corruption in the love. Please understand, corruption in the love…..
Listen! The friendliness of the mother when it is fenced as “compassion” and “care”, friendliness of another girl when it is fenced and declared as “relationship”, the non-existence of the so-called friendliness of compassion or the relationship called “aloneness” and “old age”, and impossibility of any of this corruption of love, even in corrupted form of love when you cannot relate or live, you call that as “death”, understand?
Listen! I am completely touching a different truth – why you feel birth, youth, old age, and death.
When the life energy is moving and expanding itself in Consciousness, the smell of the Consciousness is “friendliness”. But when you divide them, in different, different, packets, your life energy starts feeling that, ‘At one day, when these possibilities are all denied to me, I am dead!’, understand? If your life energy is made to believe morning waking up, having your breakfast, lunch, dinner, a few activities, and sleeping, is Life, it is a corruption that happened in the level of love.
I know, still, many are not able to catch what I am saying.
This corruption that happened in the love makes you believe that at one time you will not be able to perform these activities like morning waking up, having breakfast, lunch, dinner, and various activities. You believe, THAT part of your life is “death”. Whatever you perceive or are unable to perceive, based on that, you define your life, understand? Life is not based on whatever you are able to perceive or unable to perceive; it is based on what exists.
Sometimes, your mother may not show friendliness. That does not mean she has lost her love for you.
Sometimes the life energy may not provide the breakfast you want. That does not mean it has killed you.
Your immortality is the truth. Some countries you may have Idli for breakfast; some countries you may have Burger for breakfast; at some places you may have nectar for breakfast; but you are not dead, understand? You are not dead! Because you don’t get your Idli and Burger, you think you are dead. The change of concept of your love does not take away the basic friendliness. Actually, what you experience with your mother, with your beloved, the last moment when you are in death-bed with the person who is giving you medical-care, everything is same; but, with your fence, you separate them, divide them, label them individually, differently. That labelling makes you feel you have life or you don’t have life. If you believe eating is life, when you are not able to eat any more due to diabetes or hypertension or any other obesity disease, you feel your life is over, you are dead. If you think sex is life, when your body is no more capable of performing, you think you are dead. So, whatever fence you make and brand it, identify it as love, as life, that concept corrupts the truth “you just move and expand in the space”.
Listen! Only a person who understands this truth – ‘I neither have life nor have death’ – can really renounce.
That is why I insist, again and again and again, renunciation is possible only at the feet of the Master, from the direct guidance of the Master.
One person wrote an email to me yesterday that he decided to live a life of complete renunciation. May be he must be watching the satsangh from somewhere. I want to tell you, complete renunciation, or any renunciation, or parivrajaka sadhu life, anything is possible only at the feet of the Living Master, never otherwise! Otherwise you can go on imagining, and you also know you are imagining. With that you can live just to prove you are right, or to protect your ego, just to hold on to your arrogance. What to do?
Understand, real renunciation is possible only when you understand “Thishttath Thasminnapo Maatharishva dhadhDhaathi” (तिष्ठत् तस्मिन्नपो मातरिश्वा दधाति) – “the life energy moves and expands itself in space supporting all activities”, understand?
Meditate on ‘What is the life energy, “Maatharishva” (मातरिश्वा), Upanishads declare, which is in me, which will just move and expand when I leave this body? What is that which entered into this body to use this body, which will move from this body and expand itself when I leave this body? What is that “Maatharishva” (मातरिश्वा)?’ Meditate on it. Have Vaakyaartha Sadhas about it.
Today’s subject for Vaakyaartha Sadhas is: “Maatharishva” (मातरिश्वा) – the life energy which moves and expands itself and supporting all the activities. You just meditate on this one word; you will understand why death is experienced as liberation and celebration in Varanasi. Literally, in Varanasi, whether you understand or not, Mahadeva gives you the experience of “Maatharishva dhadhDhaathi” (मातरिश्वा दधाति)”! The life energy is made to move and expand itself! Just because you didn’t have the experience of immortality, you are not punished. If you don’t have the experience, you need to be treated with compassion, not with the attitude of judging, the judgemental attitude. Mahadeva makes himself available in Kashi, in Varanasi. ‘If you don’t have knowledge, I am responsible to give you that. I am not here to punish you because you don’t have the knowledge of immortality.’
“Charya” – lifestyle, “Kriya” – rituals, processes, “Yoga”, and “Jnana”, all the four of the Aagamaas are established on just this one truth – “Maatharishva dhadhDhaathi” (मातरिश्वा दधाति). “The life energy moves and expands itself supporting all activities”!
Means, the life energy you are carrying has no death. It does not dissolve into something. It does not disappear. It only moves and expands itself. It just moves and expands itself. The Lifestyle, Processes, Yoga, and Knowledge of Aagamaas….
Aagamaas have four “paadhaa” – Charya Paadha, Kriya Paadha, Yoga Paadha, Jnana Paadha. The Jnana Paadha is called as Vidya Paadha also. All these four Paadhaas, Charya, Kriya, Yoga, Jnana, all the four are established on this one truth: “Maatharishva dhadhDhaathi” (मातरिश्वा दधाति) – “The life energy moves and expands itself”, understand?
Sit, think, contemplate, internalize. Especially if you are above sixty, you SHOULD work on this verse, you should think about it deeply and realize it as early as possible. Above sixty means, already you are running on bonus, already it is going on extension, and you will have to seriously consider about this “Maatharishva dhadhDhaathi” (मातरिश्वादधाति).
Today, the subject for Vaakyaartha Sadhas: What is it that is unborn in us, which is never going to die in us, just moves and expands itself once we drop this body? Whether we believe it or not, this is the truth! Mahadeva makes himself available for all of you to realize this truth in Varanasi, specially this May. Whenever you go, he makes himself available as Achala Moorthy. This May, he will make himself available in both forms – Achala Moorthy and Sachala Moorthy!
“Maatharishva dhadhDhaathi” (मातरिश्वा दधाति)! Have Vaakyaartha Sadhas on this.
