Isavasya Upanishad, the prayer is taken to the next level, you are taught; soham’asmi – even when I am praying, you and me are from the same Source, oh Source make what I want as a reality.
Now the Kena Upanishad is taking it to the next level, declaration not prayer – me, my ability to will.
Understand, just like you have various abilities; the ability to see, ability to use your hands, ability to use your legs, ability to listen, ability to think, you have something called the ABILITY TO WILL.
The ability to will integrates all of your abilities. The ability to will is the spiritual umbilical cord, connection with Cosmos.
Understand, other than God, no one can will. When we are told only God’s will be done, means actually no one else can have WILL. Only God can have WILL. If you are having the power to will, you are connected to God, you are part of God, you are Him. Understand.
The power to will is umbilical connection with God. Our umbilical connection with God is our power to will.
If you WILL no one can deny it, even God cannot deny it, because your will is bestowed on you by God. The Upanishad does not say, “ Oh Brahman, let all my energies be awakened”, no! It does not say, “Oh Sadashiva, let all my energies be awakened”, no.
May my limbs, speech, vital energy and all senses be fully matured and enriched with strength and energy – auṃ āpyāyantu mamāṇgāni.
I tell you, every line when I read and understand, I am again in love with Vedic Rishis. Every time I read a statement and understand, I just fall for them once more. What a powerful, unselfish revelation of Truth, but Upanishadic Rishis such vast realizations but zero tendency of exploitation. In the modern day, the more you exploit the more you are successful. Especially when I hear these horror stories of doctors coming out and confessing that they falsely diagnose people with cancer even though the patient does not have cancer just for the sake of selling medicines and false treatment. This is just horror story, worse than murder stories, worse than rape stories. When I hear all of all this in the modern day and read the lines of the Upanishadic Rishis, what an amazing, powerful strength and zero selfishness. All their plans are for only to strengthen you. When I read these verses I understand, what a great unselfish, dedicated, sacrificing, empowering consciousness. Just for their purity they are worthy of being worshiped as being Gods. Every time they are only interested in empowering you. Every time they are only interested in awakening the stronger power in you. They are not interested in reminding you of your weakness and telling you are a sinner and keeping you under them, no. They are no way interested in that.
The first verse starts with..
May my limbs, vital life energy – auṃ āpyāyantu mamāṇgāni vākprāṇaścakśuḥ
śrotram-athobalam-indriyāṇi ca sarvāṇi |
It does not say, Oh God, let my limbs, speech, life, vital energy become strong. No, no.
āpyāyantu mamāṇgāni – I am declaring. May my limbs speech, life, vital energy, eyes, ears, and all the senses be fully matured and enriched with the strength and energy because my will is God’s will – mama sankalpa shiva sankalpa astu – My will is the umbilical cord connection with the Cosmos.
If I will something it has to shake the Cosmos, Cosmos has to make it into reality, because I am IT, I am still connected to IT. If I don’t have the power to will, I am disconnected from it. As long as I have the power to will, I have authority, I am authorized to will.
I tell you guys, just use this one truth. All my temples should teach this prayer, teaching human beings to create the WILL and make it into reality. You will be so strong, so beautiful. Understand, only strong beings will be beautiful beings, only strong beings will keep the order in the life. Some people tell me, “oh, if all of us can will, all of our wills can criss-cross and create so much of chaos.” No. Strong people create order, only weak people create chaos. Strong people never create chaos.
Strong people create order. Only weak people create chaos.
See this land, Kashi is the land of learning. From how many thousands of years I don’t know. This place has been known as the land of learning. This place is the symbol of Vedic Culture. All the learning is only used for peace. All the learning is only used for peace. Strong people create order they do not create chaos. Kashi is the symbol. See the whole Kashi everything is order. Only the people who don’t understand they think it is chaos. If you understand they everything is in order. All of us live together. Strong people create order not chaos. I think yesterday I committed, I will speak on the Upanishads and help you guys to manifest all the powers. I think Sadashiva is doing both the job, because this same science only to manifest the all the powers also. This is the same truth.
The Upanishads are talking on the first verse and this is the same truth used for manifesting the powers. For manifesting all the powers just you need to declare, WILL. Will means anja, ajna means third-eye. Third eye means Varanasi.
Varanasi has two meaning; the place between the eyebrows and nose, the place between Varuna and Asi. Place between the eyebrows and nose, third eye. Place between Varuna and Asi, Varanasi. Your will is seated on the ajna chakra, third-eye. Varanasi is the right place to manifest that power, to practice. Your WILL can powerfully integrate you with Whole, Brahman or Sadashiva.
The word ‘Sadashiva’ seems to be more tasty, juicy because not only It is the Source of everything, it manifests not just experiences but powers too. Brahman seems to be more experience; Sadashiva is experience and expression put together. Brahman seems to be shaved face, young boy, okay. Sadashiva seems to be very matured, manifesting. Whether it is Brahman or Sadashiva, will is the umbilical cord through which you manifest.
Will is the umbilical cord in which you and Sadashiva are connected, you and Brahman are connected, you and the Universe are connected.
As long as you have power to will, you have a right to Enlightenment. Power to will is the right to Enlightenment.
When you have the key to treasure, when you have the key to treasury and you are not enjoying the treasures you are a fool. When you have the will, which is the key to Enlightenment, and manifestation of all the powers, and you are not manifesting it, you are a fool.
Don’t waste your WILL. Don’t wait, it will be there forever with you, even if you don’t use, don’t think it will be there forever with you, even if you don’t’ use and don’t take your will for granted. When you have it, better use it.
When you are having it, better use it. If you don’t use it, Sadashiva may think – I think he does not need it – and it can be taken away any day. Before it is taken away, use it. Come to Kashi when you have two legs to walk, don’t wait for eight legs to carry you. Come to Kashi when you have two legs to walk, don’t’ wait eight legs to carry you. Use your WILL when you are having it. Ability to will is the peak of human consciousness you can experience. Ability to will is the peak of human consciousness you can experience.
Ability to will is the peak of consciousness. Use it to manifest Universe in you.
Will is the umbilical cord which connects you and the Universe. Don’t waste, will it and make it. Will it, it will be.
Use your power of declaration.
You should use at least next 24 hours and have the understanding about your will. The power of your will. Then I will teach you this verse, which can be reality just by your will, because this verse is the best will you can create.
It’s unfortunate, in English I do not have any other word to translate ajña, but you need to know in English it is used for future tense. In Sanskrit ajña is present tense. There is a big cultural difference. The moment I translate, the juice is lost. Will is more like a future in English, but in Sanskrit ‘ajña’ is present. Nothing, just for the next 24 hours, till tomorrow morning, you come back to the tomorrow’s satsang, just create a few will, just create a declaration and see how it starts manifesting in you. Come back with that experience and confidence and I tell you, you won’t fail, you will only gain confidence. Try to create some will in your life. It can be as simple as the red signal in the traffic signal should change. It can be as simple as the traffic light should change to green; to as difficult my wife should listen to me.
Create a WILL and see how it manifests and come back with that confidence, and I tell you once you understand the science of will, so much, so much can be manifested by you. So much of order, so much of love, so much of life, can be manifested in you.
Please listen, Sadashiva is waiting for each one of you to manifest Him, because more and more of you manifest Him, the more and more joy in the planet earth. More and more of you manifest Sadashiva’s powers, more and more bliss in the life. More and more of you manifest His powers, more and more consciousness in the world. So that is the best thing you will do to you and you will do to others. More manifestation of Sadashiva’s powers! Don’t ever think, “oh, I am also trying to manifest but God is putting a lot of obstacles in front.” No, He is not putting up the obstacles, He is helping you to remove it. Change your understanding. He is not putting the obstacles. You are putting the obstacles; He is helping you to get out of it.
Will, will, will. Will is the umbilical cord in which you are connected to Universe. Try, get back to Me tomorrow with success, then I will teach you the meaning, because when you create this will as per this Shānti Pātḥa, it should simply become reality.
Let’s recite the Shānti Pātḥa once more.
