Your own Existential experience is only one, your ātman, self. Everything else is your perceptional experience. If you remember in the dream, is this perceptional reality or existential reality?, you will wake up. In the waking state, if you remember, is this perceptional reality or existential reality?, you will be awakened.


Kenopanishad. The sacred secrets revealed in the Kenopanishad.  The 3rd and 4th mantra in the second khanḍaḥ of Kenopanishad.

yasyāmataṁ tasya mataṁ  mataṁ yasya na veda saḥ
avijñātam vijānatāṁ vijñātmavijānatām || 3||

The 4th verse recite along with Me:

pratibodhaviditaṁ matamamṛtatvaṁ hi vindate
ātmanā vindate vīryaṁ  vidyayā vindate ‘mṛtam || 4 ||

I’ll read out the translation for the 3rd and 4th verse, then reveal the sacred secrets.

He by whom, It is not known, to him It is known and experienced; he by whom, it is Known, to him, It is not known or perceived. It is unknown to those, who think they know It well and known to those, who know It not.

The 4th Verse:

It is truly known, when the Self is consciously cognized and subjectively known to oneself in each state of Consciousness with every modification of the mind and intellect. Through such complete, matured cognition of the Pure Self is attained immortality, amṛtatvam —existence in one’s own Self. By Ātman, the Pure Self is attained real strength, the space of powerfulness. And by Vidyā, Complete Knowledge of the Self is experienced Immortality, which is the true nature of Ātman.

Listen, I’ll reveal the sacred secrets in this 4th verse. Listen carefully.

It is truly known when the Self is consciously cognized to oneself in each state of consciousness with every modification of the mind and intellect, through such complete matured cognition of Pure Self is attained immortality – existence in one’s own self. By Atman, the pure self is attained real strength, the space of powerfulness and by Vidyā, complete knowledge of Self is experienced immortality – which is the true nature of ātman.

Listen to the 4th verse of Kenopanishad:

It is truly known, when the Self is consciously cognized and subjectively known to oneself, pratibodha, in each state of consciousness with every modification of the mind and intellect, through such complete matured cognition of Pure Self is attained immortality – existence in one’s own Self.

Now you have to be very, very deeply listening.

Listen. In the deep sleep state, the huge darkness covered by the darkness, peace covered by the peace, which you experience and in the waking state, the solid world, Universe, everything you experience, and in the dream state, whatever you experience which is the addition, deletion, modification of what you experience in the waking state.

Listen. I am talking about 3 states – deep sleep, dream, waking. Actually, states are twenty-five, there are twenty-five states, very elaborately explained in the Shaivite tradition. I’ll explain all that further, but now you need to know this basic three.

Deep sleep state, where you experience extraordinary silence and peace. Darkness covered by the darkness. When you come out of the state, how you remember, what you remember, that is what I am describing. Actually in that state what you experience you do not know. I am only trying to explain what you remember after you come out of that state. Listen, carefully.

And I also wanted all my disciples, followers, fans, devotees, everyone to know, the myth you are having – I am deeply devoted to Swamiji, I’ll serve Swamiji and Sangha but I don’t need to listen to all this Satsang, this are all going above my head. No. When you are in love with Me, I cannot go above your head, I can only get into your heart. So, you are expected to understand whatever I am teaching with the listening. You provide listening, making you experience is My responsibility.

Listen carefully. The deep sleep state, what do you experience, what do you perceive, what you understand, what you experience during the deep sleep state; what you perceive and manifest in the dream state; what you perceive and manifest in the waking state.

Let Me repeat. What you perceive in the deep sleep state; what you perceive and manifest in the dream state; what you perceive and manifest in the waking state – the whole thing is made out of same material. It is just modification of your Consciousness.

Listen, if you wear it on the head, it is called crown. If you wear it on the ears, it is earrings. If you wear it on the neck, chain. If you wear it on the hand, bracelet. If you wear it on the hip, udayanam – but all of them are made out of the same material called Gold. Same way, what you experience in the deep sleep state, what do you experience in the dream state and manifest in the dream state, what do you experience in the waking state and manifest in the waking state, are all made out of the same material.

Now comes the confusion. “No. What I see in the dream is not staying, what I see in the waking is staying.” Now comes tons of questions. The questions now raise is: “What I see in the dream state does not stay. What I see in the waking state stays and there are some more questions. No, no, no, no… what I go through in the waking state does so much in me, what I do in the dream state does not do that to me.” The perceptional experience based questions.

Listen, there is something called existential experience, perceptional experience. In your life your character is existential experience, your reputation is perceptional experience. The reputation has nothing to do with character. Most of the time it is opposite. Terrorists are calling themselves as peace preachers and peace preachers are treated like terrorists.

Existential experience. Perceptional experience.

Most of your questions, what I see in the dream does not stay, what I see in the waking state stays. Listen carefully, this question you are carrying, “oh what I see now in the waking state is more stable, solid, permanent, looks very vivid, but what I see in the dream is not that vivid, that permanent.” I want to ask you – do you get the same question in dream state? Listen carefully. Do you get this same question in dream state? No! Because, when you are dreaming actually that looks very solid, when you are dreaming it looks more as an existential experience not perceptional experience.

Now in the waking state again the whole waking state looks like existential experience not perceptional. In the waking state, dream state looks like a perceptional experience, this looks like an existential experience.

Only if you move a step further, you will understand this is also perceptional experience, not existential experience.

Listen, listen carefully, I will not only logically establish, I will establish it experientially. If you just internalize this thought current, you will experientially experience, how all these are modification of your own Atman, Self.

Your own existential experience is only one – your ātman. Everything else is your perceptional experience.

Listen carefully. Gold, in its pure metal form, maybe in the form that it is available for all of you guys to get to see – the biscuit form. Pure 99.999 purity, something will be printed on it, it will be like a biscuit form. That is the existential reality, existential experience. Everything made out of it, whether it is the crown or the earrings or the chain or udayanam or the ring, everything made out of it, is a perceptional reality, not existential reality. Your ātman, in its pure space is only the existential reality, everything else is perceptional reality.

Listen, you many think why I am repeating, because you are missing listening. Actually this truth, it has to be drilled into your system, then, even in the dream you will remember – is this perceptional reality or existential reality? If you remember in the dream – is this perceptional reality or existential reality? – you will wake up. In the waking state, if you remember – is this perceptional reality or existential reality? – you will be awakened.

Understand, in the dream if you remember and question – is this existential reality or perceptional reality? – you will wake up to the waking state. In the waking state, if you question – is this perceptional reality or existential reality? – you will be awakened, to the awakened state. Dream – waking up – waking up to awakening up.

This verse need to be chewed, chewed, chewed. If you have chewed the betel leaf or chewing gum, you know what is real chewing. Just like that it should be chewed in your inner-space.

What do you experience in the deep sleep state?

What do you perceive and project in the dream state?

What you perceive and project in the waking state?

– about all this three, you should start drilling.

Please understand, I am going to give you some conclusions, some understandings, from my ātma pramāṇa, which is in tune with āpta pramāṇa, you should go on be chewing that, then it will become your sākshi pramāṇa.

Listen carefully. The first logical question you have is – things here looks very solid, if I hit the wall I feel the pain, if somebody touches me with a lot of love, I feel cared, if I put something in the mouth, the taste is felt, so here things are more solid, but in the dream state it is not. Listen, actually in the dream state also, if you dream as if you are falling, you will experience fracture in the dream state. How many of you dream you have fractured yourself? Raise your hand. That’s all.

When you wake up the fracture does not exist, is different. But in that state itself, as long as you are in that state there also everything is solid, everything is solid just like this state, when you are in the waking state how you feel everything is solid, that is exactly the way precisely is felt in dream state also.

The next question we will all be having is, “Oh! In the waking state I can see I am almost living hundred years. Every time when I am forty, when I am fifty, when I am sixty, when I am eighty, when I am ninety, it’s all same, consistent, but in the dream state, doesn’t look like same, every day when I go back to the dream it is different.”

Listen, listen carefully to understand this question. How many of you have dreamt in one night itself you are writing examination, and you are getting married, then, in the nightmare you wake up? No. How many of you have experienced in the one night dream itself few years? Raise your hand. Then, in that few years have you felt inconsistency? No. So who knows this whole hundred year is not one night dream? Maybe you are writing examination, you are getting married, kid, meeting the Master, He rose in the dream, and you wake up! “Oh! Who knows? Suddenly now you may wake up, and say the whole thing was a dream Swamiji.”

Listen, perception of time, perception of stability is not existential, it is perception, because how you feel the time looks very solid in this waking state, you feel the same way in the dream state, but when you wake up, you understand, it was not true, as you felt in the dream state. Listen, carefully, when you are out of the dream state, you can see the whole dream. You can see, you saw yourself as twenty. You saw yourself as thirty. You saw yourself as forty. You saw yourself as fifty. You can see the whole.

Actually, when you are awakened you can see the whole of this, waking state. Suddenly you feel the fear, “Oh God then what about all the plans I did, all my ambitions, I have so much energy, intelligence and I fought for it. What is this? Suddenly the whole thing is dream?…no, no, no… even if it is dream it’s ok, I want to live here, because I have put too much energy in it.That is what I call pattern. Pattern mean not letting your consciousness evolve in the natural flow of the existence, even if I don’t appear to you as a Guru, the natural flow of existence, life is hard wired to remind you by the continuous mild shocks about the true existential experience of life, in the form of change. 

Every time when you lose a relationship, or when you lose somebody near and dear one, either you lose them or you lose their love, you are reminded, about the impermanence, this whole thing is perceptional existence not existential existence. This whole thing is perceptional reality, not existential reality. Listen, but quickly you want to come back to the cognition, no, no, no, all is well. IT IS existential reality. Appaa God! 3, 4 days I was in confusion and depression. No! Now you are confused and depressed. Not when you are going towards the Truth.

Understand, not letting the natural evolution of Consciousness happening in you, is pattern and it so frightening, it is so frightening some time. “Oh God, then this whole thing aaahh… I built such a big house, building, career, car, money and if I don’t have, if I did not build money.” There are some people built career, money, business, building, house, home, relationship. There are some people who did not built that, they spent all their life abusing the people who built it. To justify themselves why they are not building it. That is what is communism. No really. Condemning people who are building it, abusing it, is also a kind of a building justification for themselves why they are not building. Whether you built what you want or you built justification why you did not built what you want, both are vested interest. These 2, does not let you WAKE UP, does not let you be AWAKENED, to the reality.

Listen, many of My Balasant, without even knowing, they are beautifully slipping into that Awakened State because they have no much vested interest on this waking state, that is why they are able to see any information related to waking state so casually through their Third Eye. Understand, Third Eye is all about Awakened state. Any game you play with third eye, any play you do with third eye, whether blind-fold reading, or further various powers, everything will lead you to Awakened State. Any way you play with your Third Eye, will push you to awakened state.

Yesterday I told some of My kids who always gaze at Me, all the time they will sitting and only seeing Me, I asked them – are you guys not bored? They say; “Naaa not bored.” I told them then turn back, tie your eyes with the eye band. Try to look through the neck. Try to see Me through the back, through your neck and they are successful. They are successful. The bhakti, which want to see, has become shakti now. Any way you play with your third eye will push you to Awakened State.

Understand the rules of the perceptional reality does not work in existential reality. The rules of the perceptional reality of the dream, does not work in the perceptional reality of waking state. In the waking state you have little higher frequency of freedom, many of the dream rules will not be applicable here. Same way, in the awakened state many of these rules will not be applicable. In this state you can never believe you can see through your back, neck.

The higher frequencies of existence are not bound by the lower perceptional existence rules and regulations. Third Eye—either you manifest the powers of Third Eye, or you start drilling yourself with this truth about deep sleep, dream, waking and awakened state, any one way you will have the other one also. If you drill yourself with this truths, which I am explaining, you will be awakened. You will have the powers of third eye OR you manifest the powers of third eye, with the Oneness from the Oneness, you will be awakened. You will have this knowledge. Buddhi is knowledge, shakti, the powers— both comes from that Awakened State. Both will lead to Awakened State. Either you can take up this path, you will have that also or take up that path you will have this also. For example, when My kids manifest more and more powers of the Third Eye, they will have the buddhi about this perceptional reality of dream state, deep sleep state, waking state, and awakened state. Or you start drilling yourselves with these truths. You will also be awakened. You will also manifest all the powers, shaktis My kids are manifesting, any way.

Listen. And the devotee was shocked, these guys are able to enter into any form, any, and anything and read. Then he said; “ No rahasya, there is no secret at all for these kids.” What your company, even Brahmanda cannot keep any secret from My kids. No actually I am going to lead them to the next level of the initiation where they will start seeing in the stone slab, that is the ultimate and final. Through that I will establish, they will do it, they will see the Cosmos to the extent where no telescope can even imagine. No man made telescope will be able to give the details they will be able to give you that details. It is possible. Because anything perceived, analyzed, understood in waking state, the rules, regulations does not apply in awakened state. Third eye is all about awakened state.

One, the solidness of the experience felt in the waking state and dream state, about that I explained and time perceived in the dream state and waking state. I will further explain the space perceived in the waking state and dream state, the concepts perceived in the dream state and waking state and cognitions perceived in the dream state and waking state.

If I explain all these in further Satsangs, you will have many of your questions answered, many of the things cleared, clarified, so what I am sharing with you is My ātma pramāṇa, my own personal existential experience; which is in tune with āpta pramāṇa, the personal existential experience of the Upanishadic Rishis; when it is shared with you and you start chewing it, which I call manana, intra-analyzing, this will become your sākshi pramāṇa
