The first idea with which Krishna is sorting out Arjuna’s problem is Sankhya Yoga. He is a person established in the knowledge of completion!

Even though it is written here in the past tense, I feel Kṛṣṇa should always be addressed in the present tense. He is still relevant, present to each of us today. We cannot say, ‘Kṛṣṇa was’ but ‘Kṛṣṇa is’, not ‘Kṛṣṇa said’ but ‘Kṛṣṇa says.’

Once again, having lamented about what he is being forced to do, and not wishing to do what he is expected to do, Arjuna, like a petulant child sits down saying, ‘Govinda, I am not going to fight, na yotsya iti govindam (2.9).’ It is as if Arjuna is waiting to be persuaded. He is seeking an explanation. Kṛṣṇa says to him gently and smilingly, ‘While speaking learned words, you are mourning for what is not worthy of grief – aśocyān anvāśocas tvaṁ prajñā-vādāṁś ca bhāṣase. Those who are wise lament neither for the living nor for the dead – gatāsūn agatāsūṁś ca nānuśocanti paṇḍitāḥ (2.11).’

The words that you use to enrich yourself, will only come out to enrich others.

It is this readiness to surrender to the Master that brings completion to Arjuna and enriches him to take the responsibility to win the war, which in reality is the war within himself.

Despite what Kṛṣṇa had said with total clarity, that Arjuna should get up and fight, Arjuna now recounts all his previous arguments. It is as if he had not listened to Kṛṣṇa at all.

To become a Sannyāsi, Śrī Kṛṣṇa says, ‘Go to Sannyāsa out of completion.’ Bhagavān is only saying one thing, ‘Out of completion, take any decision. Out of completion, take any decision!’

He once again implores Kṛṣṇa, ‘You, as the Lord of the Universe, have the right to destroy what you please. As the Lord, You destroyed the demons Madhu and Keśin and many other enemies. How can I, a mere mortal, be bold enough to wage war against my grandfather and my teacher, with the intent to kill them? They are ones I should worship, not destroy. I shall be condemned if I fight them.’ Read More

Understanding the divinity of Kṛṣṇa is a step to intranalysing and living one’s own divinity.

There are two ways in which people react to the sanctity and divinity of Kṛṣṇa in Bhagavad Gītā.

To one set of people, Kṛṣṇa has no special qualification to be called divine and these people may not even believe in anything such as the Divine. As atheists or agnostics, the only way such people can be convinced is initially through the rationale of the dialogue in the Gītā. The dialogue surpasses anything written in any language at any point in time in its clarity and wisdom. The message of Kṛṣṇa is universal and timeless. Those who do not accept and understand, it just means that as of now, it is not their time to understand and transform. Read More

When we verbalize, analyze, label and associate our patterns as impossibilities, we have created a whole new problem that had not existed earlier in our being.

Here all the verses of the Gītā are reduced to just two verses by Kṛṣṇa.

He straightaway addresses and completes the root pattern where Arjuna is stuck, that is in his need for name and fame or rajas.

  • A man who is centered on satva, goodness, who has neither greed nor lethargy but a neutral attitude, will work out of compassion.
  • A man who is centered on rajas will work only for name and fame.
  • A man who is centered on tamas, lethargy, will work only for sensual pleasures.

Continuously human beings resist expansion. Incarnations happen on the planet to remind human beings about their possibilities, to expand human consciousness!

All our depression, worry patterns are nothing but root pattern of a deep fear of life, a deep self-doubt, fear of expansion and fear of losing something. You need to stand up and complete with your root thought patterns to be rid of them. Please understand, even your ignorance is nothing but your fear of expansion. Many times, you continue to pretend to be in ignorance, because of your fear of failure.

You always believe that you are suffocated by your smallness. NO! You are suffocated by your bigness!

There are many levels of fear: fear of losing our wealth and status, fear of losing a limb or our health, fear of losing our near and dear ones and fear of the unknown or death. That is why Kṛṣṇa says that Arjuna is not behaving as an ārya, a word that can be interpreted as a nobleman; an integrated human, not a particular race or caste. Vedic literatures say that an ārya is one who is evolved, cultured, integrated and authentic, a prince amongst men. Read More

Tyaktvottiṣṭha Parantapa

Arjuna was distraught with pity and despair. His pity was for his opposition that consisted of his svajanam: kinsmen, elders, teachers, relatives and friends. He despaired at the thought of what would happen if he did have to kill them. He had collapsed in his chariot and his bow and arrow had slipped from his hands.

Krishna allowed Arjuna to exhaust himself, physically, emotionally and spiritually. He listened to him carefully, completely. Kṛṣṇa wanted to give Arjuna time to open his mind, heart and being to Him, Arjuna’s friend, guide and master, so that His answers would penetrate Arjuna’s very being. Read More

Whenever you listen to you, you listen to others. When you don’t listen to others, you don’t listen to you also.

Listen! Please come to the space of listening. Many teachers tell you, ‘However much you listen, unless you practice, it won’t help you.’ I tell you now, ‘However much you try to practice, unless you listen, it won’t help you!

The problem is that we do not trust ourselves and our innate intelligence to respond to a question without preparation. That is why we start preparing the reply even before listening. Whenever we allow our incompletions to wake up and interfere into our thinking or cognition process, listening stops.

Hearing is not listening.

Integrity, the power of words starts with listening, continues with listening. Human beings miss life when they miss listening. For a person who wants to begin the life, the first thing he needs to learn is listening.

Listening is God. Just by listening you experience God! Read More

When was the last time you really listened to your own words?

It is here that we enter into the real Gītā. It is from here that Bhagavān or God, Nārāyaṇa starts speaking and singing the Gītopaniṣad into the listening of Nara Arjuna, and through Arjuna into the listening of
the whole of humanity. Until now Kṛṣṇa was speaking as a man, as Vāsudeva Kṛṣṇa, in His human form, but it is only from here that Kṛṣṇa sings as Parabrahma Kṛṣṇa, in His divine state as Bhagavān, the universal Kṛṣṇa.

Understand, only an intelligent man will allow the other person to speak. Only a man of completion will provide integrated listening to himself and others. We all speak continuously to each other, but a conversation does not really happen. When the other person speaks we do not listen; we are busy preparing our own reply. We never speak into the listening of others, we just speak into the non-listening of others! We need intelligence, we need integrity to allow the other person to speak into our listening.

Listening is directly connected to your ability to handle reality as it is, without creating your own unconscious ideas and conclusions.

Modern day cinema, entertainment industry cult and mass media cult brainwash you that the violence is heroism. No it is not! Non-violence is heroism! Non-violence has saved me, made me productive, made me contribute what I need to contribute to the world.!

I will reveal the secret to go to Kailasa once for all: All violence is delusion. 99.9999% of the material out of which you are made and I am made is not only the same stuff, they also know that it is same stuff. That .0000001% only is the little arrogance, anger that makes you and me feel separate inside you. I call it delusion.

The worst delusion in the universe is feeling of separation. One day, quantum physics and science will catch up with what I am declaring. That will be the greatest thing for humanity. Now, decision makers may or may not take me seriously. But in some time, people who they trust, the scientists, will come to the conclusion I am declaring now. They will come to the same conclusion, because humanity has to be saved.
Feeling separated is the most stupid and worst delusion. It is from the ‘feeling separated’ stems violence. Violence is rooted in feeling separated.

The ultimate cosmic law is non-violence and it is the most powerful, best strategy, even to stop the Hindu Holocaust!

Ahimsa Paramo Dharmaha, the ultimate cosmic law. Dharma means ‘Cosmic law’. 

I talk after thoroughly tuning myself to Paramashiva. Literally Paramashiva is uttering every word I am uttering. Even the full stop, comma, pause, everything is directly His, including the body language. HE is just using this muscle memory, bio-memory, bio-energy to manifest what HE wants to do. I am very responsible for what I am talking.

Originally, Hindu kingdoms are supposed to run by cosmic law. Cosmic law itself is adopted as country law and the constitution is drawn. When I read more and more the Hindu constitution and Hindu criminal procedure code, I think: what a civilization! I am everyday falling in love with Manu, Bharadwaja and Yajnavalkya!

Let me first make you all understand how I adopt Ahimsa, nonviolence, for relationship with me and with my guru, relationship with my first team, with my sangha, with my disciples and devotees, with practicing Hindus, with the whole universe, with the whole humanity, with everything. Read More

Tyaga is asserting your higher existence by dropping your lower existence.

त्यागेनैके अमृतत्वमानशुः
Tyāgēnaikē amṛtatvamānaśuḥ
It is only by tyaga, that amrittatva – the immortality – the nectarine space, is achieved.

Any fear you have, is nothing but fear of tyaga. Build a fire of tyaga. Then nothing can frighten you in the universe and you will become immortal. It will make you feel that life is already too much of a blessing!

The most beautiful thing that happened in my life is Paramashiva’s grace.

The second most beautiful thing that happened is, taking birth in a small indian village where tyaga is lifestyle! Read More

No soodu, no soranai, only Paramashiva!

First, I want to bless ilavarasan and viji: with Paramashiva’s blessings may you live with all prosperity. To all the Kailasavasis of Pallavapuram: with great love and friendship I bless you to live with all prosperity and fulfillment. This is my reply to news18 and gratitude to news 18 for telecasting this news. I don’t agree with the ‘rape case’ and ‘kindapping case’ part of your news in this video. These false cases have been put by people who don’t even know how to put a false case. With the grace of Paramashiva and protection of Kalabhairava, these false and useless cases will drop.

I will explain this ‘no soodu, no soranai…!’ Read More
