If you come to the conclusion You are Consciousness, by your very breathing you spread that as it is your Bhaava does the Spanda and the Sphurana.

Actually, I feel that whole thing, all of you in front of Me and this whole hall, this mic, everything, this throne, everything, kind of a…liquid, semi-solid. Where the bhaava freezes into matter, where the ideas becoming idols, in that space, I can see the whole operation happening. From this space, I want to give you one advice. Please understand, whatever you believe – your body makes that into Reality.

Powers are nothing but your brain deciding to believe the magical existence of you against the logical existence of you, which is taught to you by your society

Working out of overflowing energy, overflowing compassion, and the overflowing feeling of responsibility for everything, is what makes a life spiritual

I always tell people, ‘Do not think you have a certain amount of energy and you will work according to that energy. No. Whatever work and responsibility you take up, the energy starts expressing accordingly. You will have energy according to the responsibilities which you take up. Whatever responsibility you take upon yourself, you will see that your inner space expands to that extent and energy flows through you!’  If you feel responsible for whatever is happening around you, you suddenly become a leader. You start transforming your life and others’ lives.

Responsibility is one of the ways to consciously grow.

You only need to do two things: trust that life is good and know that you can expand to the responsibilities that you take up. Another thing, when that expansion happens, just hold on and have patience during the transformation process. Patience during the transformation process is what I call tapas or penance. There is a beautiful phrase of the teachings of Shirdi Sai Baba : ‘Shraddha, Saburi’ – trust and patience. This is the essence of life. Read More

Reaching out to an Enlightened master, doing what the master says and acting without intention is life!

If the depth of the intention is more and the action is less, the person is lazy. He is lazy or in tamas.
If the depth of intention and of the action is the same, the person is in restless action or rajas.
If there is no intention but only the action, he is in purposeless action or sattva.

That is why Krishna says in the Bhagavadgita, ‘Fight, O Arjuna.’ It is not the act of ‘killing’ that will be recorded but the intention that will be recorded. The intention of Arjuna is the intention of Krishna, who is a being with no intentions as He is one with the Cosmos!

When you act in tune with the Cosmos, the whole Cosmos blesses you. You attract all kinds of positive coincidences around you. That is why when people contribute even a little to the cause of such a person they are showered in abundance from all corners.

Mahadeva revealed Upanishads to Ramachandra Prabhu, Lakshmana and Sita under the Banyan Tree in Bidadi Nithyanandeshwara Temple

This number 18 very significant in Vedic tradition – Bhagavad Gita 18 chapter, Mahabharat War 18 days, all the major temples, whether it is Sabarimala, Madurai Kallazhagar temple or the Engoi Mallai  – always 18 steps and the 18 akroni Sena fought the Mahabharat war. 18 is very significant number, but all 18s came after this Isavasya Upanishad’s 18 verses. This is the first 18; because, please understand, Ishavasya Upanishad is the first Upanishad.

Rama, listen, Rama when He lived in Ramanagaram, received all the 108 Upanishads at a time from Mahadeva under our Banyan Tree, and after the victory when He came back, He brought, see after the victory and He came back, he had Pattabhishekam and he brought Hanuman and showed all the places He traveled. They had a vacation tour. At that time, Hanuman also came to this place, and then again sitting in Ramanagaram, that hill, Rama put the whole 108 Upanishads names together, what He received from Mahadeva and repeated to Hanuman, that is Muktikopanishad.

Please understand, whatever I am saying is Fact, Truth and Reality from the Cosmic archives, the Akashic Records sooner or later you will find evidences for this. Read More

Go to the depths of right understanding about pain and pleasure

Today I will start with the 14th verse 2nd chapter of Bhagavad Gita.

maatraa-sparshaastu kounteya sheetoshna-sukha-duhkhadaah |
aagamaa-paayino’nityaah tans-titikshasva bhaaratha II 

‘Oh son of Kunti through the contact of the senses with the objects there results heat and cold which in turn give rise to pleasure and pain and these have a beginning and an end. Oh descendent of Bharata understand discrimination that they are impermanent and ignore them’

Verse after verse Krishna is throwing atomic bombs; the inner atomic bombs. If the samskaras are to be destroyed, the engrams have to be destroyed; these verses are the best inner atomic bombs. See it’s not a moral teaching; understand that is the main thing. And a person like Krishna does not believe in morality, understand that… He does not believe in the so called social moralities. And he has done everything antisocial and illegal. I am telling you everything which is antisocial when he existed illegal when he existed. When he was in the body whatever was antisocial and illegal he has done everything.

A girl asks… a small story… a girl asks a man will you love me after marriage also. The boy says that depends on your husband if he allows me. You are laughing. This is what Krishna has done. Radha is married. Do you know? Radha is married to somebody else. She was already married when these two fellows were having affair. Whatever is considered as immoral, antisocial, illegal, he has done everything. Man like him, if he speaks, understand it is a straight truth; not tainted or painted or coated or mixed with any of the social norms and rules and regulations. Read More

Upanishads make you live Advaitha by giving you Sacred Knowledge, Sacred Sentiment and Sacred Cognition.

Satchidananda is not delusion or illusion or imagination. Satchidananda, living Satchitananda is possible. That is the first statement I want to give about Living Advaitha.

Second: The understandings you need, understandings you need for the spiritual possibility, understandings you need for the spiritual possibility, listen, the understandings you need for the spiritual possibility is “Jnana”, Sacred Knowledge.

Sacred Sentiments you need to have, you need certain kind of emotional strength when you go through the transformation. When you start living Advaitha, certain emotional strength is required, and the intensity of the passion and emotion can be used to explode into Living Advaitha to take you to the next, next, next levels.

In Vedic Tradition, GOD is not Hard power, He is Soft Power !

Listen! I am defining two words: HARD POWER, SOFT POWER.

Hard Power” means, the political power, where the administration, bureaucracy, the Law, Court, punishment, reward, all this exists – ‘You HAVE to do this or you will be prosecuted and put in jail!’ ‘You should not do this or you will be prosecuted and put in jail, tortured. You may even be hanged!’ This is “Hard Power”.

Soft Power” is the spiritual power. Thousands of people, I can say, in a way, even millions of people do whatever I am saying in the morning satsangh. I don’t have any “hard power” over them. Sometimes I am just sitting in this hall in Bidadi and saying, ‘Please close your eyes. Start inhaling and exhaling, and chant Shivoham.’ I can see, all over the world, thousands tying the eye-band, and closing the eyes, and inhaling and exhaling, and start chanting Shivoham.’ There is no “hard power”. If they don’t do, there is nothing like they are going to be prosecuted, punished. No! It is a “soft power” where, if they do, they raise themselves out of their own inspiration; voluntarily they come and learn to evolve themselves, raise themselves. Read More

First, foremost, and final words given to the universe from the Universe, given to humanity from the Cosmos

Listen! This is the first and foremost, and final word! Upanishads are not like Science, every day developing. For example, today a scientist will come and declare something as truth. Everyone will agree. That will be considered as truth. People will make their life’s decisions, align everything based on that truth. In ten years, another scientist will come and prove that whole thing as false and declare something else as truth. Then people will align their lives to that. And then, after five years, somebody else will come and declare that as a lie and prove something else as truth. Understand, if the truth is going to be changing tomorrow, it is not truth even today. Upanishads are not like science which is evolving or changing. It is like a scientist carries a lantern in a thick forest and tells the truths about the forest to the world, ‘There are ten trees, two snakes, and….dark.’ When you walk further, ‘No, no, the forest is not just ten trees and two snakes; it is more than twenty-five trees, and two elephants.’ When you walk further, ‘No, no, no, no, no, it is not even twenty-five trees. Trees, trees, trees! Any side we turn the lantern, it is trees, trees, trees all around, and different types of animals!’ This is what is Science! But, Upanishads are a Rishi sitting and seeing the whole forest in a flash of lightning and describing it! Understand, the lantern descriptions will always change; but the Rishi sitting in the peak of the hill, seeing the whole thing in one flash of lightning, and penning it down, is Upanishads! Understand the difference between these two. Upanishads are the first, foremost, and final word on truth! First, foremost, and final word on truth!

Nothing, nothing like Upanishads declare all the truths in so close a way to the heart, in such a closer way to the heart. Such a beautiful way to live! User-friendly! Read More

Yogo Nashta Paranthapaha

Krishna….I tell you, Krishna is the most time-tested enlightened master, and Gita is the most time-tested teaching, because even while he was delivering, the listener is not ready to believe.  He has to go to the extreme of showing the Vishwaroopa to make the listener believe, to establish his identity, credibility.

 Bhagawan has to show Vishwaroopa thrice:

  • Once for Shishupala;
  • Once in the Kauravas’ Court; and,
  • Once for Arjuna.

 Of course, several times he showed he is divine:  When he liberated Karna; When he gave blessings to Bheeshma; and, The moment he took birth, to tell Vasudeva and Devaki, he showed his divinity.

 But, his Vishwaroopa he showed thrice.  If you see the timing, it is almost to make those persons understand who is standing in front of them, with whom are they playing.  Arjuna was so strong, continuously questioning.  Finally, Krishna has to show his Vishwaroopa to make Arjuna understand the principles he is teaching.  But, even then, in course of time, always this science gets lost.

एवं परम्पराप्राप्तमिमं राजर्षयो विदुः । स कालेनेह महता योगो नष्टः परन्तप ॥ 

“Evam paramparaa praaptham imam raja rishayo vidhuhu |

Sa kaaleneha mahatha Yogo nashtah Paranthapa || 

“This handed down thus in regular succession, the royal sages knew,

This Yoga, by long lapse of time, has been lost here, O Parantapa.”

 Please understand, in course of time, the tsunami of your regular incompletions takes away your strength of Completion and the qualities born of the space of Completion.

Please listen!  Just yesterday we handled one important situation where a few people have lost the power of Completion.  When the tsunami of incompletions is awakened in you….  Please understand, money, power, women, wealth, these all are not cause or reason for incompletion, be very clear!  Don’t beat the chair if you hate the person!  No!  Money is not a reason.  Power is not a reason.  Wealth is not a reason.  Lust is not a reason.  The only reason for the tsunami of incompletion is we entertaining those patterns.  We entertaining those patterns!  Because, the same money, I don’t see, is making somebody else incomplete, somebody else to do this same kind of activity.  So many Mahants were shocked, ‘How can people lose authenticity?’  It is possible!  Whatever pattern you are carrying, when there is a huge volume of cotton inside and the fire comes near, it catches.  If it is just banana leaf, it won’t catch fire.  So, whatever pattern you are carrying inside, that responds to the world.

If you are caught in the money, money pattern, money engram, when money comes in front of you, you lose everything, you lose whatever you know as you.  Same way, if you are caught in the lust pattern, the other gender is there in front of you, you lose everything, you just lose whatever you know as you.  If you are caught in the hunger for power, the moment power comes in front of you, you just lose everything.  You think, ‘Just this one decision I will compromise; then the power will be with me.  After that I will become authentic again.’  No!  Anything which comes to you by compromising Authenticity, will continue to be with you only if you continue to compromise your authenticity.  If money comes to you by compromising your authenticity, that money will continue to stay with you only by compromising your authenticity.  If power comes to you by compromising Authenticity, that power will continue to stay with you only as long as you continue to compromise your authenticity.  If money comes to you because of your authenticity, how many people ever try to take it away, they won’t be able to take it away!  HAHAHAHAHAHA!  If power comes to you, certain glory comes to you, certain grace happens to you because of your power of Authenticity, how many people ever try to disgrace you, it is simply impossible!  Impossible!

Recently I read an analysis and survey article on the Internet; means, the people who write articles after analyzing, surveying different data, the freelancers.  Of course, their articles are picked up in journals also, the print media also, the freelancers.  The article lists the people who are not shaken by the scandals and rumours and gossips, the top ten international celebrities who are not shaken by any of the rumours, scandals, who could not be disgraced by any happenings around them, who continue to be successful.  The eighth name is “Paramahamsa Nithyananda”!  HAHAHAHA!  They are stating, ‘These are the ten people, no rumours, scandals could disgrace them or could stop their lives.’  They don’t know the science.  They wrote by doing some analysis and study.  I am now giving you the science, the secret.  I am giving you the secret: If any money, power, anything comes to you because of your authenticity, it can never be taken away from you!  If grace happens to you because of your authenticity, it can never be taken away from you!  That is why I am saying, anything which happens after enlightenment cannot be snatched away from you by anybody, because enlightenment itself cannot be snatched away!

Listen!  Sometimes when people do some immoral, illegal activity, who were good earlier, when those situations are brought in front of me, this is the only reason I find – Yogo Nashta Paranthapaha!  In course of time, because of non-practice, the power of Completion gives way, and the tsunami of incompletion takes over you.  Understand, the power of Completion gives way, the tsunami of incompletion takes you over.  The power of Completion when it loses power, when the power of incompletion takes you over, please listen, you lose the very identity of you.  When you lost you, you lost everything, because now you have to be searching who you are.  Anything can be lost, but not who you are.  Listen!  Anything can be lost, but not who you are.  Losing who you are is too costly a missing.

In English there is a proverb:  If money is lost, nothing is lost; if health is lost, something is lost; if your character is lost – I won’t say “character”, I will say “authenticity” – if your authenticity is lost, everything is lost!  Why do you think in our Sangha I am so meticulous about even where you sit?  I always insist, let the Mahants sit in the front row, then Kotharis sit, then Thanedars sit.  I always insist.  You may be thinking, ‘Why?  What is there in sitting?’  You don’t know!  Everything matters for your authenticity.  Because, I have seen in Mahanirvani Peetha, the whole inner image of a person changes the moment he is initiated!  The moment he is given that seat, that gaddhi, he redesigns the concept about himself, he redevelops the concept about himself, he recreates about himself.  That is why this big….all these marks, bhasma, rudrakshas.  These all make you authentic to who you are, what you want to be, what you are, what you want to be, constantly reminding yourself and others, aligning yourself and others’ experience of you, Inner Image, Outer Image, Others’ Image, and Life Image, aligning all the four.  All these are required.  All these are required.  And all this reminds you and takes care you don’t fall from Yoga, Yogo Nashta Paranthapa does not happen in your life.  Let the Yoga not be lost.  Let the authenticity not be lost.  Let the Yoga be not lost.  Let the authenticity be not lost.

Listen!  In course of time, when people see money, when people see power, Yoga gets lost.  Sometimes, due to non-practice also, Yoga gets lost.  Means, operating from the space of Completion is Yoga.  Living and radiating the space of Completion, living and radiating the space of Completion is also Yoga.  Listen!  Yogo Nashta Paranthapa!  Completion is the only way you can get out of the lost life.  Please understand, unable to retain your inspiration is nothing but life lost.  Unable to retain the inspiration is nothing but losing completely yourself.

Just yesterday, I was telling a devotee, ‘When life happens to you, and if you feel you are smaller, you lose inspiration.  But ability to stand with life in all its power and glory is life.  Yogo Nashta Paranthapa!  Yoga is lost when you don’t stand to the life.  Understand, every night Completion will make sure the incompletions don’t settle down on you as a powerful layer, and, suddenly, one day, you need to wake up and complete the whole thing.  No!  Every night Completion!  Every night Completion, so that the incompletions does not settle down in you as layer, as sediment, incompletions don’t settle down in you as layer, as sediment.  Yoga…Yoga…Yoga means operating from the space of Completion.  Anything can be lost, but not Yoga.  When you allow the incompletions to take over, when the incompletions become more and more powerful, slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly but steadily, Yoga is lost.

I tell you, your every-day action is responsible either for extraordinary miracle or extraordinary accident.  Neither miracle nor accident happens over a second.  Neither miracle nor accident happens just like that.  No!  Whether it is the going up or going down, it happens because of your every-day activity.  Nothing comes as surprise, nothing comes as sudden.

Listen!  Listen!  Completion….every day when you practice Completion and fall asleep, your whole night Dreaming and Deep Sleep state aligns your unconsciousness to your life, to your authenticity.  Every day your Deep Sleep and Dream state supports you, supplying extraordinary powers to you, the next day to be more authentic.  Understand, unknown part of you is extraordinary powers of you.  If you take the blessings and support of the unknown part of you, it is extraordinary powers’ space.  Every night when you complete and fall asleep, the power of Completion, next day morning when you wake up you are there alive, your unconscious and sub-conscious supporting you to be more and more authentic….to be more and more authentic.  It is Authenticity, it is Authenticity that is life.  Authenticity, that is life, understand!

Bring Authenticity to your life.  It is Authenticity that is life.  Practice Completion continuously, and don’t lose living out of Completion, don’t lose your Authenticity, don’t lose your Authenticity.  It is unfortunate, human-beings lose their Authenticity, in course of time their inspiration, energy for Completion, to live in the space of Completion.  Listen!  Life happens, life happens when you continue to operate from the space of Completion.

If you know how Krishna happened and is operating, you will just merge in Him.

Janma karma cha me divyam evam yo vetti tattwatah;

Tyaktwa deham punarjanma naiti maameti so’rjuna!

Krishna says He who knows in true light MY divine birth and action, after having abandoned the body, he is not born again, he comes to ME.

Bhaktyamam abhijanati yavan yaskasmi tattvatah, tatomam tattvato jnatve visate tadanantaram!

Devoted to Me in the Truth, what and who am I, knowing the truth of Me, he enters into the Supreme.

Krishna is such an orator, who can verbalize the whole Truth in such an amazing way! Not just Bhagwan, God, Poornavatara who had Saraswathi in his tongue and Lakshmi in His hrudaya and Devi in his being, courage, Poornavatara. No, every time you read even one sloka of Gita, you see it clearly again and again, the most precise, the most sophisticated expression of the Truth as it is. Especially the Royal Sanskrit.

See, the Sanskrit also has a version which used by common men, the version which was used by Pundits, the version which was used by Rishis, the version which was used by Kings. Krishna uses the version which was used by Kings and Rishis, like the english of J Krishnamoorthi. The English I am using is more or less the english used by common men, or a little bit used by the masters like Osho, Vivekananda, but J Krishnamoorthi’s english is the royal English, used by the elite. The Tamil I use is the Tamil used by the elite. Actually, the Tamil I can play both game; I can be slang of village or rural slum or the rishis Tamil or Tamil of the siddhas or Tamil of the kings; but English is the common man’s, or a little bit masters like Osho or Vivekananda. Here the Sanskrit Sri Krishna is using is the Sanskrit of Kings, elite. Every time I read even one verse of the Gita, I just remember the personality Krishna would have been carrying, and the way He lived, which is the perfect blend of an amazing Rishi and an amazing King. If I have to compare, I can only compare with the Tamil used by Meenakshi; there are many verses attributed to Meenakshi, the songs and verses, I can be sure it is from Her only, just by the language, because she carries the language of the Siddha and Queen, the language of elite.

If you are not having wealth, you are working for poverty.

Wealth is not a thing to be created or managed. It is you. If you are not having wealth be very clear the flow of your very being has some serious flaw. Please understand.

Krishna says very clearly

“Gahano Karmano Gathihi”.

Life is work.

If you are not having wealth you are working for poverty.

You work for only 2 things in your life: either you work for wealth or you work for poverty. Find out how you are working for poverty and change the tendency to work for wealth. Poverty is sin, please understand.  Dump the statement: “Blessed are those you are poor that they go to heaven”, no. And even if they go to heaven, who wants to be in heaven where all poor fellows are sitting J , come on ! “Blessed are those who are rich, they live in Heaven”. This is a new testament, understand. Don’t make poverty and failure sacred. We have a very wrong understanding.

You see, grabbing wealth from others is wrong, but creating is not wrong. We have such a life negative idea, you see, may be when Jesus uttered that statement ‘blessed are those who are poor’, all the rich fellows have become rich by grabbing, not by creating. You see that tribal lifestyle is grabbing lifestyle that is why the only power they know is physical, brutally rob, that’s all. That is why always the king is supposed to be a fighter, not a thinker. So, He is addressing a civilization which is a muscle power based civilization. Naturally wealth means power, if you have power you grab others’ wealth. That is why, he might have said ‘blessed are those who are poor’, because they don’t grab others wealth. But it is wrongly understood, spread, poverty has become sacred.

Poverty has no sacredness.

Failure has no sacredness.

Your ignorance cannot be justified. You are not supposed to be shown any sympathy, if you are a failure or ignorant.

Constantly perform responsible intense action with no clinging to the reward of performance.

IA Participant: Dear Swamiji, in Bhagavadgita chapter 5 verse 11 and Chapter 5 verse 12, the sacred secret is – ‘Constantly perform responsible intense action with no clinging to the reward of performance.’ My question is – I typically prioritise my business tasks by revenue; the higher the revenue, the higher the priority of the task. Is this verse 11 and 12 of chapter 5 applicable in the planning, execution, or both phases. Please clarify. Thank you, Swamiji.

Swamiji: Please understand, you doing the business tasks by the revenue, higher the revenue, higher the priority is perfect. Nothing wrong. But when you start calculating your whole life just based on the money or the revenue, that is where something is seriously wrong. At some points you may have to perform many actions which does not bring direct revenue but which brings fulfillment. For example, all the actions in your relationship, family; you may have to get a toy and give it to your child, you may have to give a smile to your spouse, you may have to give a hug to your friend,  don’t lose those dimensions.

Unfortunately if you put everything in the revenue sheet; toy is not a revenue, it is only an expense, a smile is not going to give you revenue, those things only I am saying, even when you need to do something which is related to your relationship which does not bring revenue, be responsible for it, be total in it. Otherwise you performing your actions, based on higher the revenue, higher the priority of task, perfect. Forget about you, even I perform like that only. That is the way life happens. That is the way life is. But you will see in me the same totality, and intensity when I perform all the actions which are not related to revenue, which are related to seva / service. When I conduct a medical camp or when I conduct some satsang or the mass programs, annadhan or any other social activities, social service activities which are no way related to revenue, you will see the same intensity in me. The prioritization may happen based on the revenue but the smile cannot happen based on the revenue.

See, after prioritizing when you start working, then forget about everything. It should be a complete total being.  You prioritizing, see.. if you are not prioritizing based on revenue you can be a complete fool. I have seen.. I have seen penny wise pound foolish fellows. They will save few pennies and lose not just pounds, millions of pounds.

In planning, do prioritize based on the revenue but when you execute forget about the revenue. Be total. Complete. Even planning as per revenue has to be done responsibly, intensely. When you execute perform intensely without bothering about the reward. See.. when I plan, I plan this, this, this, this, this. When I execute even if the reward does not come, I don’t bother. I go ahead, execute. Do it. Over.

In planning, do responsibly. In execution do responsibly without clinging to the reward of performance.
