As long as we are in this present moment, we have a pure perception without any patterns, only then we are truly complete and integrated.

The best enriching philosophy on the planet Earth is Kapila’s Sāṅkhya!

Do you know why?

Because Kapila has no patterns.

Kapila is established in completion—the space of pure perception! No patterns are involved in the processing of information through the senses. The fire is seen as the fire. Not even an iota of the idea of heat or cold is superimposed on it! Superimposing any idea on life takes away the joy of life. The great news for human beings is that māyā (illusion) can be transformed. Perception can be transformed. You can become enlightened!

O humanity! I am here to give you the great news! Perception can reach completion! When you bring completion into the perception, a moment of perception can literally bring enlightenment! Continue reading →

Consciousness is all-pervasive on which the past, present, future is painted and You are the consciousness!. How much of freedom, ability you have, to breathe without suffocation about your past, only that much of freedom with ability to breathe without suffocation, you will have over your future!

Realise that the past happening, its impact and impressions, the present happening, its impact and impressions, the future happening, its expectations, hopes, ideas, impacts and impressions, are all paramashiva – ultimate auspiciousness!

The short sighted, narrow, egoistic mind, experiences the future as “yet to happen” and past as “already happened”. This is delusion.  The most powerful delusion human consciousness suffers with is concluding that the past has already happened! Concluding that the future is absolute and is going to be “new”, is the most powerful delusion! Worst delusion! Continue reading →

When you surrender to the Master, you can never feel drained and exhausted because you are directly connected to the one who is an embodiment of the infinite energy!

In the Bhagavad Gita, Arjuna is confused completely about what is the path he should follow. The ultimate teaching imparted by Krishna to Arjuna in the last chapter is the best technique to realize the Ultimate. After giving various techniques like meditation, devotion and knowledge, finally Krishna reveals the straight, sure and ultimate technique, which is that of surrender.

Be very clear, when you surrender to an enlightened master, you are actually surrendering to one who has no ego, no identity and hence no vested interest of his own. He is one with and overflowing with Existence. By holding his hand, you ask him to take you also to the ocean of bliss he is in. Continue reading →

What really happens on a physical level when we perceive things ?

When there is a perception of physical reality, the various parts of the brain show a change in neural activity as the neurons, which are the basic building blocks of the nervous system, fire in synchronicity. This results in the random visual patterns of light being perceived as specific shapes and forms. This is how the input from each of our senses is perceived as an experience of particular sound, touch, smell, taste or sight. If you now step back and look, you can see that before the observation or the perception, both the world as well as you, that is the seen and the seer, existed in a dynamic and chaotic state of activity. The act of perception changes that chaotic state into some sort of an order that becomes both the seen in the outside world and the process of seeing in the seer (as the activity in the nervous system) at the same time. At the moment of seeing, the probability of what is seen collapses into a specific form. Continue reading →

Even if you had a conscious glimpse of the truth at least once in your life, then you can enter into death with awareness and fully conscious!

When you enter into the dream state and start dreaming, this whole world in which you live now becomes black and white because you are in the dream world. You forget this whole world of your waking state and the dream world becomes very real and seen in multicolor. If you come out of the dream, this whole world that you wake up to is again seen in four dimensions, 4D.

Now when you are in this physical body and in the waking state, you experience this world as 4D, in multi-color. When you are in the dream world, you experience that world as 4D. So, when you are here, the dream world becomes black and white, and this world becomes 4D, and when you are there, the dream becomes 4D, and this world becomes black and white.

In the same way, when you move away from the physical body to the pranic body at the time of death, this whole physical world will become unreal and seen in black and white. All your achievements, your pride, your efforts, your sorrow, your happiness, everything will no longer have any meaning and will appear in black and white. You will wonder, ‘Why did I do all this work? Why did I think of all this as a base for my life?’

Let me explain why this happens. Continue reading →

When you face death you see that it is nothing but life!

Death is a deep relaxation. It is the ultimate ‘letting go’. It is the dropping of the old and starting with the new. When your being recognizes that it cannot achieve what it wants to through this body it decides to move on. This ‘moving on’, this ‘passing over’ is what is called death.

When your brand new house becomes old after the passage of years, you either try to repair it or if that is too inconvenient and frustrating, you decide to sell the house and move into a new one. When you do this, do you feel that you are missing something?

No!

In the same way when you feel that you have not lived your life totally in the way you wanted to, you leave this body to take a new one. You want to restart. Your choice to start all over again is what is called death.

In the same way when you feel that you have not lived your life totally in the way you wanted to, you leave this body to take a new one. You want to restart. Your choice to start all over again is what is called death.

When you die, all that happens is that you rejuvenate your body and your mind. You take a fresh set of memories, a new place, a different set of relatives, a new life. In other words you take up a new birth hoping to fulfill all your incomplete desires. Whatever you left unaccomplished you come down to finish. This choice given to you by god to start all over again is death. Continue reading →

Actions of an Incarnation, enlightened master can never be without awareness and compassion as HE is in one with Existence!

If a person has committed ten murders, the quantity of murders will not be recorded. But the intensity of the murderer will be recorded. It is the quality, the mindset, and the attitude, that carries the karmic burden.

That is why Krishna says again and again in the Bhagavad Gita that intention is much more important than action. That is the message of the whole Gita. He says, ‘When you are without intention, I will take care.’

Action does not get recorded. Only intention gets recorded.

The Mahabharata tells us the beautiful story of a courtesan and a monk.

There was a monk who lived across a courtesan’s house. He used to keep a count of the men coming to her house and used to imagine all kinds of things about her lifestyle. The woman spent all her free time praying to Krishna to redeem her from her miserable life. Continue reading →

It is awareness that transforms pain to bliss which is the energy that exists no matter what the external situation may be!

The root of pain and pleasure is the same.

It is the same sensation with two names. It is like two people receiving a body massage from the same person. One concludes that it was a beautiful rejuvenating process while the other decides that it hurt! The same massage will appear like pain or pleasure depending on the person receiving it.

Life has both of these opposites, pleasure and pain. Both pleasure and pain are from the mind. The mind always moves from one extreme to the other. It rarely falls into the middle path. From pleasure you move to pain, from pain you move to pleasure. As we saw earlier, pleasure and pain are completely dependent on the person feeling the pleasure or pain. Something may seem like pleasure to you, while the same experience may be pain to someone else.

In the Bhagavad Gita, the great scripture that teaches the various paths to Self-realization, the enlightened master Krishna says beautifully, ‘He who regards alike pleasure and pain, and looks on a lump of earth, a stone, and a piece of gold with an equal eye, who is wise and holds praise and blame to be the same, who is unchanged in honor and dishonor, and who treats friend and foe alike, is said to have gone beyond the modes of nature. Pleasure and pain are the same to him and he is ready for enlightenment.’ Continue reading →

Krishna is the greatest hero happened on Planet Earth!

Ramakrishna will not even let you near. I have no doubt that Ramakrishna is an incarnation, Ramana Maharishi is an incarnation. Rama would not have even allowed Shakuni to be around him.

See Krishna’s personality, he never gave up on people even who are hypocrites towards Him. He continued, continued till the end he did not give up.  Please understand, till the last day of the War, Krishna’s army was fighting for Duryodhana, you need to know, the fellow who ordered Krishna’s arrest.  See, when Krishna went as an ambassador, as per the dharma, Hindu dharma, ambassador cannot be arrested or harmed.  I think, all these laws, Hinduism created first: how to interact with other countries. But he crossed that law ordered the arrest of Krishna’s.  Krishna used his power to save himself; that is secondary. He goes to that extreme!  But even Duryodhana, Krishna doesn’t say ‘No’ when Duryodhana comes to Krishna for help before the War.  Actually, this Duryodhana coming to Krishna for help happens after Duryodhana orders Krishna’s arrest and Krishna saves himself!  Even the multi-layered people, the hypocrites who behave one way here, one way there, one way there, even the multi-layered people, Krishna didn’t give up.  That is why I am saying he is a Poornavatar.

There is a big difference between “you don’t rape somebody because of fear of law”, and “you don’t rape somebody just because you don’t want to be violent “

There is a big difference between “you don’t rape somebody because of fear of law”, and “you don’t rape somebody just because you don’t want to be violent and you don’t want to enter into somebody’s space”. You don’t want to rape somebody because of Law & Order is “hard power”. You don’t want to rape somebody because you don’t want to enter into somebody’s space, or you don’t want to be violent, or you don’t want to be abusive into somebody’s space is “soft power”.

Order which comes by “soft power” is the permanent eternal order. Understand, order never comes by “hard power”; it comes only by “soft power”.

May be, Law & Order can come by “hard power”, but order can come only by “soft power”. Actually, this will answer a lot of questions about what is secularism, why the concept of secularism evolved only in the western countries, and why the concept of western secularism is not going to suit India.
