When people ask me whether I am god, I tell them it depends on you!

This is an incident from the days of my spiritual journey.

One morning, a master was talking to all of his disciples in the angle of feeling connected to the whole of the Himalayas. The master was loving and caring enough to allow me also into their morning session. He was asking the disciples one by one, ‘Did you practice this technique?’ It seems a few days earlier he had initiated them into the technique of feeling connected to the Himalayas. They were supposed to constantly internalize that the Himalayan mountains was a part of their body. Continue reading “When people ask me whether I am god, I tell them it depends on you!”

When you realize Master’s ferociousness is not a hit, but a blessing out of sheer compassion for you to grow, you will realize the beauty of it and welcome it even more

The stronger you hold on to an ideology or to a person, the deeper will be your depression. If you hold on to a person, say your boyfriend or girlfriend or husband or wife, your son or brother or father, you will be bound by the sway of the relationship, and you will invariably fall into depression and start blaming that person. This is how depression happens. In the same way, if you hang on to your ego or identity or ideology, again you will face depression.

What does ‘seer’, ‘seen’ and ‘seeing’ have to do with ‘Enlightenment’ ?

We see two things in the process of ‘seeing’, the seer and the seen object.

Actually, what is happening in the process of seeing?

From the seer, consciousness takes a jump continuously to the seen, because it is not able to relax into the seer itself. Because of its restlessness, it gives life to the seen. The continuous jump that happens between the seer and seen – from the seer to the seen, from the seen to the seer, again from the seer to the seen and again from the seen to the seer – is what is SEEING. When the seer is not completely in bliss within himself, he starts becoming restless and jumps. When he jumps, he gives life to the seen. Because he gives life to the seen, the process of jumping becomes SEEING.

There are two ways to drop this process of seeing.

Whether you are stuck with the seer or with the seen, get completely stuck and you are enlightened!

If you are my disciple, you don’t need any spiritual practice, you only need to manifest all the seeds I have put inside you. The feeling connection you cherish has tremendous impact over you!

Please understand, if you feel connected to a Yoga Teacher, naturally he will have so much of impact over you, you will have health. He will somehow make you do Yoga. He will somehow make you bend again and again, by talking or whatever. He will make make you do Yoga and you will have health.

If you have feeling connection with teacher who teaches you stotras and bhajans, kirtans, somehow he will make you feel the devotion because constantly he will be sharing his thought current and he will do it. So with whom you entertain feel connection matters.

Be careful about with whom you are opening your heart and when you find the right person, don’t wait to open your being.

The moment you know right person is in front, don’t just grasp, just grab. Grasping is too decent word. When you know the right person is in front, don’t be too decent, be raw, just grab. Otherwise you may be wasting your life in the name of decency.

Understand, to whom you open your being and feel connected is very important.

The moment you decide to be My disciple, decide to entertain feeling connection to Me, cherish your bhakti towards Me, understand, I have put the whole Science of Oneness in the complete seed form inside you. You do not need any spiritual practice to achieve them. You just have to declare to start manifesting them, you just need to declare and allow them to manifest in your life, in your situations, everyday again and again. I tell you, when you declare and start manifesting even the intelligence you require for further manifestations –  I will send it along with it. You don’t have to think, “to build 24 inch biceps, I have to lift 20 kg. In each hand, I can only lift only 2 kg, how will I lift 20 kg and build the biceps?” No. Start with 2 kg, that strength which you develop with 2 will take care of you lifting 5, the strength you develop further will take care of you lifting 10.

The moment you open your mouth, if all your exaggeration is moving around either towards your God or Guru, you are one of the richest beings in the Planet Earth!

The Advaitha, please listen, Oneness becomes your reality with the Love Current of Mahadeva. Please understand, when you authentically experience Love Current of Mahadeva, the Oneness you experience will continue to keep you retain the juice of celebrating Mahadeva, understand? Today, I wanted to expand on some of the most subtle points.

यस्मिन् सर्वाणि भूतान्यात्मैवाभूद् विजानतः ।
तत्र को मॊहः कः शॊक एकत्वमनुपश्यतः ॥
Yasmin SarvaaNi Bhoothaani Aathmaivaabhoodh Vijaanathaha |
Tathra Ko Mohaha Kah Shoka Ekathvam Anupashyathaha ||

“In one who has cognized the reality, all existing beings become the very Self. Then what delusion, what sorrow of incompletion can there be for that Seer living in the space of Oneness, Living Advaitha?”

Listen! The Love Current of Mahadeva leads you to Oneness experience. After that, after the experience of Oneness, the way you live will be the Love Current of Mahadeva, understand? Love is not just a path for experiencing Oneness. After experience the Oneness, the utility value of life itself is Love. If you start practicing love now, meditating on Love Current of Mahadeva, you will experience Oneness, and after experiencing Oneness, the way you operate, the way you cognize, the way you move, the way you live, the way you exist, the whole thing will be same Love in a different dimension.

Always there is a conflict between Advaithis and Bhakthas. Always Advaithis declare these Bhakthas as “Leelavaadhis”: ‘All the time talking about devotion, devotion; they never experience the Oneness.’ And, always these Bhakthas go on criticizing these Advaithis as “Mayavaadhis”, delusionists: ‘They don’t celebrate devotion and love.’ And there is also a subtle deep fear that if you experience Oneness, you may lose the devotion; it may all become all “Me”, “Me”, “Me”, “Me”. From the side of devotees, they feel, ‘Oh, if we experience Oneness, it will all become “Me”, “Me”, “Me”. Devotion will be lost.’ From the Advaithis, ‘Oh, if I experience devotion, that is all! The state I am in, I may lose it! I will fall into duality!’ It is such a stupid misunderstanding!

Discovering the context of Imperishable for all the major decisions of your life is Living Enlightenment

I will expand on Isavasya Upanishad. Usually when I come to Varanasi I speak on Kathopanishad. This time I decided I will continue on Isavasya Upanishad because last time we couldn’t spend much time on Kathopanishad. I was expanding on 14th verse of Isavasya Upanishad. 

sambḥutiṁ ca vināśaṁ ca..

Actually I am uttering only one word. One word easily you all can recite. Listen and repeat. You don’t have to feel intimidated, ‘Oh Sanskrit. I don’t know.’ I am not giving you long words. Please understand, these sounds are very powerful, they can sit inside your inner space, go on purifying on. They are like powerful inner purifiers. So listen and recite.

sambḥutiṁ ca vināśaṁ ca yastad vedobhayaṁ saha |

vināśena mṛtyuṁ tīrtvā sambhūtyāmṛtam aśnute || 14 || 

Just recite. It’s the 14th verse of Isavasya Upanishad. I will give you the translation.

One who cognizes the pure essence of these both—the imperishable consciousness, the cause of manifestation and the destructible, the perishable, manifested entities, simultaneously—such a person completes with the fear of death and transcends death by worshiping or by knowledge of the perishable entities; and reaches the imperishable consciousness; celebrates the nectar of immortality and bliss, the eternal space of oneness.

Now listen. It’s the literal translation I have read out. The key word in this whole Upanishad, you need to understand. What Upanishad is trying to convey it to you. Listen. Continue reading “Discovering the context of Imperishable for all the major decisions of your life is Living Enlightenment”

What is Kundalini?

KUNDALINI! The very word creates some vibration in our inner being! One of the most powerful, most important truths you need to understand, and most misunderstood! Some of the most important truths in life are only most misunderstood words in life. Death, Sex, Meditation, Kundalini, all these words, most important words you need to understand, most important concepts you need to understand, unfortunately most misunderstood words. But, one good thing: All these most important, most misunderstood words, like Kundalini, Sex, Death, Meditation, all of them are inter-connected. Today, I will expand on Kundalini.

Let me give you the understanding about Kundalini.

First thing, Kundalini is your inner potential energy. If you have diabetes, high blood-pressure, how much ever you try using your fear or greed to push yourself to work, there will be an extraordinary tiredness beyond your mental will, decision, there will be a force pushing you to bed, pushing you to sleep. Please understand, if you had this experience you will be able to understand what I am saying. Kundalini is exactly opposite to that. How much ever the outer situations try to suppress you, push you, shrink you, it will just expand you and make you vibrate with this power. Continue reading “What is Kundalini?”

When Guru ordains, He sustains!

Guru Purnima is such a rare day, when Guru accepts bhiksha and burns the karmas of the disciples. Guru Bhakti – authenticity in your relationship with the Guru – is his message for Guru Purnima 2015. To those who consider him as Guru, he declared that – “I want you to have the inner image of SHIVOHAM (Shiva I am).” Whoever does that, he as Sada Shiva, committed to give the boon of LIVING SHIVOHAM. If the inspiration and energy of the  

Guru Purnima 2015 message—Guru Bhakti. Understand, understand this word – Guru Bhakti. It is not just putting few flowers in His feet, or doing some small puja, of course, that is a symbolic representation, but the real Guru Bhakti, understand, being authentic to Guru. 

Let me explain that word – Guru Bhakti, being authentic to Guru. Look into your inner image, see how much of your inner image is influenced by Guru’s presence in your life. Look into your inner image, see in how much you are still stuck, with your old stupid identity and inner image, how much the Guru has influenced, the Guru’s presence has influenced and how much of your idea about you as you has changed.  Continue reading “When Guru ordains, He sustains!”

Man who celebrates Life is worshipped. Man who is constantly complaining is worshipping.

 

Listen, every moment the happening in you, means your Life. Listen carefully..Life. You may be marching towards your goal to achieve something in the outer world or inner world or you may just be confused and stuck. Whatever, but Life IS happening to you. Please understand, even feeling confused and getting stuck, is Life happening. Sometime people feel, you are not even letting us live in confusion and depression little bit. Understand, confusion and feeling stuck, is Life happening. Life happening. So, in this happening of Life, whenever you change the game, like the rules with which you need to play with the matter, if you play it with Consciousness; the rules with which you need to play with Consciousness, if you play with matter.

A ship is very safe, most secured in the port, when it docked, whatever, but it is not created just for that purpose. Understand, if you always decide based on law of life — if the ship is parked or locked in the port, it is very safe, most secured. Yes, no doubt! But the purpose of ship is not just being docked in the port.

Law of life is only teaching about the most secure things. Flow of life is exciting, adventurous, innovating, opening up different possibilities. Continue reading “Man who celebrates Life is worshipped. Man who is constantly complaining is worshipping.”

First and foremost commandment of Hinduism is THOU SHALL NOT DIE!

There is so much of powerlessness, powerlessness based focus on Death. But, if you turn your attention on dying, the powerlessness will be removed from Death. If you are waiting for Death to stare at you, you are waiting for powerlessness to overpower you. If you are staring at Him, when He is staring at somebody else, you are removing the powerlessness from Death. Understand, as a Hindu Incarnation, authority on Hindu tradition, Upanishad, and the Hindu way of living and Hindu goals, Hindu ambitions, I tell you, first and foremost commandment of Hinduism is THOU SHALL NOT DIE.

Do what it takes. Do what it takes. THOU SHALL NOT DIE—that is the first and foremost commandment for Hindus. Fools are those who die, stupid are those who plan for liberation after death, Hypocrites are those who never look into the eyes of death while living. Criminals are those who are diverting others attention also from the Death by stupid, shallow, shady lifestyles. Any lifestyle which is trying to divert your attention from looking into the eyes of Death and ability to go beyond the death, that life is shady, shallow, stupid, hypocritical, blind. Criminals are those who are promoting those lifestyles and diverting your attention from the original need of life, going beyond death.

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.

Having all the necessary intellectual understanding to live Advaitha is “Jnana”. Having all the intellectual understanding, listen, having all the necessary intellectual understanding is “Jnana”.

Satchidananda is not a fantasy, please be very clear. It is not a fantasy of the Hindu brain. No! It is not a fairy tale from some old rishis of Taraka Vana or Naimisharanya. No! Listen! Listen! Satchitananda is not fantasy. It is reality! Satchitananda is reality! I am not interested in debating with the people who call this as fantasy.

I am not interested in leading to unnecessary debate; but I am always ready to clarify all the possible doubts. Continue reading “Guru is the powerful wake-up call towards your spiritual possibility!”
