What is Deeksha or Initiation, Muscle memory, Bio-memory, Bio-energy ?

I’ll define Deeksha. Super Consciousness intensely, electrocuting…..understand the word ‘electrocuting’….your existence and raising you to the frequency of it’s existence, is Deeksha.

It can happen through Guru, through the Deity, through even a tree, river, hill, with whoever Deeksha has happened for you, He is – that is, your Ishta Devata. Understand. Deeksha means Super-Consciousness electrocuting you, please understand, it will always be electrocuting. It can never be mild 120 volt. No. Not even 240. It will always be 10,000 volts. 120, 240, all that does not really carry the strength of the word when I am uttering ‘electrocuting.’ It is only 10,000. Literally, lightning landing on your system.

After Enlightenment happens, you will understand that the whole thing is nothing but the pure grace and blessing of Existence!

Nobody really wants enlightenment in the real sense! They just want it as a utility or to keep in their showcase!

Understand, God gives you the freedom to be in bondage also. Enlightenment can never be forced on you. If it is forced, even freedom will become bondage.

There are two things, qualification and wanting.

There is no qualification needed for enlightenment, but the deep feeling, the deep wanting that ‘I want it’, should be there.

Please be very clear, I also had ALL the problems that you are having like not being able to trust Existence or not being able to trust myself, I had everything. All I can say is, there is no qualification for enlightenment. For somebody to become enlightened, they do not need any qualification. Read More

What resulted in Paramahamsa Nithyananda Swamiji’s first spiritual experience

The Upanishads, the ancient vedic texts by the sages and mystics that happened as revelations, say that for the person who is initiated, the whole world is heaven.

Understand the word ‘initiation’. It does not mean doing some ceremony or ritual. Initiation means that ‘click’ happening in you. When a master expresses the truth, if the click, the realization, happens in you and if you suddenly feel, ‘O god! What he says is right. I was always thinking exactly this. He put it in the right way,’ that is what initiation is. If you feel whatever I am speaking is what you always thought about but I am verbalizing it and properly putting it in words, the initiation has happened.

Please understand, only after all the preparation is done and only when you are in the state of high intensity, the truth uttered by the master just clicks. When the master says there is no need for any seeking any more and just liberate yourself right now, you will be able to do so only if you have done enough of seeking and created the intensity. That is the paradox! Read More

Enlightened masters don’t have inner chatter, they experience the pure and ultimate visualization!

The very source of intelligence is clear visualization. You need to plan only when you don’t have complete and clear visualization. Pure and clear visualization expresses the total concept in one glimpse. If we don’t have such visualization, we do linear planning or step by step logical processing.

Enlightened masters don’t have inner chatter, in other words they don’t have the continuous train of thoughts going on in them. So they experience the pure and ultimate visualization. Anybody with clear visualization does not require planning. Spontaneity is enough to do the job. Events happen spontaneously around such a person. Any updating or development that is required also happens automatically. Even if events change they will beautifully fit within the framework initiated. Only a person with pure visualization can create a real, tangible program and update it constantly with spontaneity and intelligence.

We see so many examples of this in our own organization like in our ashram in the temple town of Tiruvannamalai in Tamil Nadu in South India. Tiruvannamalai is home to the sacred, mystical hill Arunachala. A once empty piece of land near the base of the mountain was converted into a full scale ashram in a record breaking time of 18 days! At the end of 18 days, it had one dozen deities installed, 1008 Shiva lingas (dome shaped representation of the male and female energies of creation) consecrated, as well as accommodation and food facilities. Over a hundred thousand people witnessed the inauguration and stood testimony to the play of spontaneous intelligence at work.

If you can face your fears, you see they have no depth!

The biggest fear human beings have is the fear of losing their identity. Even the fear of losing one’s life is not as great as the fear of losing the identity. The fear of losing your identity is much worse than the fear of death.

All our fears, be it fear of losing physical health, mental stability, wealth, name and fame, or loved ones, are actually fear of death under various disguises.

The social fear or fear of being rejected by society makes us do things to please society, even when it is not good for us. In this process, many times, we sacrifice what our being really wants to do. That fear of not being accepted by society is just another form of the fear of death. It is the death of the ego.

Every act of ours is unconsciously related to death and the fear of dying. Understanding death can change your entire perception of life. It can simply transform the way you handle all your fears. Fear is what leads to anger. Fear is the passive form of the energy while anger is the active expression.
When you are angry, just look into the anger. At the root of it, you will find a deep fear.

Try this for yourself:

if you are feeling fear, express anger at that time. Throw your hands, stamp your feet and express the energy. You will see that the fear disappears. You will see for yourself how fear can simply transform to anger. Similarly, fear can also transform to hate. You just need to be aware of yourself and witness how the emotions subtly change from one form to another. When you understand this play, you can easily get out of the game. Read More

Whatever you think as valuable, they are not even useful to you. How do you think they are useful to Sadashiva? He is not looking for anything from you. He is looking at your Consciousness through which He can celebrate Himself, He can manifest Himself!

One of the Mahadeva Rahasya you need to know, the moment you start seeking eternal love or bliss, which stays with you – understand you have received incoming call. And you need to know the individual soul, Jeevātma can only receive the incoming call, he cannot make the outgoing. If there is a seeking in you, understand, Sadāshiva has called you and you have all the right to declare – Sadāshivoham. Understand, when He calls it is always – Shivatvamasi – means He is initiating you. Shivatvamasi. Ay, you are Shiva. Ay, you are Shiva. Now you have a right to declare, Shivoham, Sadāshivoham. You don’t have to feel shy, “Oh, if I declare myself as Sadāshiva, will He not get angry, will He not check my qualifications?” No. The moment Seeking has come, you received the incoming call, pick up and talk. You don’t have to feel shy that you are calling that person. No. He has called you. You have a right to talk. Understand, you are programmed only for incoming call. If you are feeling the bell ringing in the hear, if you are feeling the seeking, drop the ego that – you are a Seeker, no.

Seeking is the secret invitation sent by Sadāshiva to be part of His secret life because He has a secret crush on you.

He has no use by you but He wants to manifest through you. Understand, ordinary human mind always thinks only in the business. “Oh, if he wants then He has something to achieve through me, gain through me.” Relax! Whatever you think as valuable, they are not even useful to you. How do you think they are useful to Him? Don’t be so stupid to think, they are useful to Him. They are not even useful to you.

He is not looking for anything from you. He is looking at YOU, your Consciousness through which He can manifest, He can celebrate Himself, He can manifest Himself. The more and more you manifest Oneness, the more and more you manifest powers; the more and more I celebrate myself in you. You become the ground in which I celebrate.

You become the Ambala in which I dance. You become the shoulder on which I rest. You become the lap on which I put My foot. You become the Adi Shesha where I do Yoga Nidra. Read More

Implicit surrender to Master’s words in letter and spirit brings tremendous completion reducing wastage of your life!

auṃ āpyāyantu mamāṇgāni vākprāṇaścakśuḥ śrotram-athobalam-indriyāṇi ca sarvāṇi |
sarvaṁ brahmopaniṣadam mā’ham brahma nirākuryām mā mā brahma  nirākarod-anirākaraṇamstva-nirākaraṇam me’stu |
tadātmani nirate ya upaniṣatsu dharmāste mayi santu te mayi santu ||

oṁ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ ||

I was explaining about the power of declaration. Today, not only the power of declaration, we are going to make itself is something extraordinary, beautiful.

sarvam brahmopanishadam |

Please understand, first thing Upanishadic Rishis are making a WILL. First thing they are teaching you is, strengthen your limbs, listening, seeing, body, mind, vital life-energy, strengthening all of that, create a will to mature and strengthen your body and mind. 

Next, sarvam brahmopanishadam |

Understand, whatever exists is consciousness including what you don’t like in the life.

People say, “everything is okay”, but who invented this examination and office? When you are a child you think, “everything is okay.” When you think everything is okay, who invented this office; even the things you feel you don’t like, not part of you remember – sarvam brahmopanishadameverything is Consciousness – means you made everything in your life, you made everything in your life. Understand, I am not talking this idea that – you made everything in your life – as a philosophy, moral, no! I am talking, I am uttering these words, as the simple facts you need to know, the truth you need to be informed before you strategize about your future existence. Read More

Upanishads are not do’s and don’ts but the thought currents you need to cherish, enjoy, entertain for higher intelligence to happen in you!

Introducing Kenopanishad. Somebody asked me, “Human beings are just developed monkeys, but how we are able to perceive so much about the Universe, Planets, Space? How we are able to understand so much about all this? Why other animals, even the closest version of us, chimpanzees, are not able to catch, understand things about Universe. Why human beings are able to understand perceive, even manipulate, as we want? Already we have space stations, some of the big rocks coming towards the Planet Earth we can blast it or redirect it from there itself. Already we are able to manipulate movements in the space. How?

Please understand, because only human beings started asking the question – keneśitaṁ – by whom? This Upanishad is responsible for keeping one of the most important, powerful thought current responsible for human intelligence. Please understand, few of the thought currents responsible for why human beings are the way they are. Listen, few of the thought currents—why the human beings are the way they are.

The first thought current—“Who am I?”

Second – “What happens after death?”

Third, most subtle, most precious, most important thought current—“What is the source of all this?” What happens after death? — that thought current was kept alive in the humanity.

Please understand, no Upanishad is a conclusion.

I wanted you to understand this Truth. Neither Isha nor Kena, or Katha, or Mundaka, or Mandukya. No Upanishad is conclusion. That’s the beauty. Seeking thought currents consolidated for further research is Upanishads. Understand, it is not answer. The whole Isavasya Upanishad you won’t get a single answer. These are some of the thesis proposed, some of the thought currents needed to be cherished, pondered upon, thought about, those thought currents will give you 1000 question 2000 answers. But those thought currents need to be kept alive; for your next generation they may give 10,000 questions and 20,000 answers. Read More

Whatever you hold with fear of losing it, precisely that will be taken away from you!

Please understand, the perception evolving, evolution of the perception is a gift happening to you, which is just happening from Perception to Fact, Fact to Truth, Truth to Reality. And anybody who stops the evolution of perception commits spiritual suicide, “Atma Hathya”, understand? “Atma Hathya”, that is the word I will use. Killing the soul, the possibility! Killing the soul and possibility! I am telling you, not to frighten you, not to correct you, not to control you, not even I am interested in guiding you. And I know nobody listens to me! After talking twelve-thousand hours last fifteen years, I am very clear on my conclusion that nobody listens to me! I am talking for me to listen to me, understand? With this clarity I am declaring this truth. Upanishads just declare their own strength by their own statements. They don’t need any author to authenticate them. Same way, whatever I am talking, the dharma, the truth, I am revealing it for myself! The listener’s listening does not need to authenticate what is being uttered. With this clarity I am uttering these words:

Listen!

WHATEVER YOU HOLD WITH FEAR OF LOSING IT, EXACTLY THAT WILL ONLY BE TAKEN AWAY FROM YOU!

I am telling you…..

People ask me, ‘What is this, Swamiji! I am such a good person. I never cheated anybody. But my wealth is taken away. But these guys who cheat everyone, their wealth and all is not taken away. They are all living wealthily.’ Read More

When You Sit, Truth is revealed !

UPANISHADS!  Actually, just every day when I come and sit here and utter that word, “Upanishads”, the way the truths are overflowing, verbalization becomes a big job!  Finding ideas is not at all a big job; verbalizing them has become a big job!

There are tons of books and tons of authors.  But, this book, Upanishads, to tell you honestly, if I have to put it a little poetically, the words feel shy to introduce Upanishads!  Words feel shy to introduce Upanishads!  If a child asks, ‘What is the size of an apple?’, you can show like this (Swamiji gestures with his hands).  ‘What is the size of a pumpkin?’, you can show like this (Swamiji again gestures with his hands).  If the child asks, ‘What is the size of the Planet Earth?’, can you show like this?  (Swamiji spreads his arms wide).  No!  This is not in any way signifying the size of the Planet Earth!  You can show, ‘This big!’  (Swamiji again spreads his arms wide).  But, that is in no way signifying the size of the Planet Earth!  That is in no way doing justification to the size of the Planet Earth!  Please understand!  So, what will I do with these words to introduce Upanishads?  I can only pull my mouth like this and say, “It is this big!’ 

The way they introduce you to you, the way they introduce the world to you, the way they introduce god to you, the way they introduce life to you, nothing can be compared to Upanishads.  Whether the purity of the substance they are delivering, or the poetic way they are expressing, or the very sound in which they have nicely embedded the vibrations of Kundalini awakening!  Upanishads not only have a linguistic and poetic importance, meaning, they have even phonetic importance.  Even phonetically they are important.  Actually, by the religious historians classifying Upanishads under Hinduism, they brought a great respect to Hinduism.  And, of course, Hindus are the inheritors.  It is our inheritance, no doubt.  But we need to live it and share it with the world.  It does not belong just to us.  Please understand, we might have been inheritors, but it does not belong just to us; it belongs to the whole universe!   Read More

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. Read More

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.
