Bholenath is the one whose pure innocent inner space creates the bliss and causeless auspiciousness wherever He is, wherever He happens!

In the Shiva Sutras, Shiva gives us techniques to achieve this innocence. If you follow Shiva’s life as is described in the Hindu mythological stories, you will not be able to see any social or traditional innocence in him. But there will be the pure and ultimate innocence. The place where he lives or the way in which he lives is not directly related to his purity or innocence. Shiva lives in a cemetery where bodies are cremated, surrounded by spirits and ghosts. The word Shiva in Sanskrit means causeless auspiciousness. This causeless auspiciousness, the energy to create bliss wherever he is, wherever he happens, arises out of his innocent inner space.

In the Vedic tradition, there are scriptural writings called Upanishads. The word Upanishad in Sanskrit refers to teachings of a master to his disciples as they sat with him. There are 108 such Upanishads. They are the essence of the enlightenment science handed down by the great masters of the Vedic times.

One of these, the Chandogya Upanishad describes a beautiful story: Read More

Just be in the present by saying a complete ‘yes’ to life, by allowing future to pass through you to become past, to have its own course

In the Vedic tradition, Shiva, the lord of destruction, is considered auspicious. The very name ‘Shiva’ means ‘causeless auspiciousness’. You will be surprised to know that in Sanskrit if you literally translate the word for destruction, ‘samhara’, it does not mean destruction, it means rejuvenation. The word that we use commonly for destruction actually means creating space for new things to happen. Even destruction can be looked at from a different dimension of rejuvenating or creating a new space for better things to happen.

Even the disease which happens to your body just creates a new space so that you can start having a new body and so that you can get ready to live a new life. You can just restart the whole process. See, actually restarting the whole process can heal many of your wounds. There are some wounds that can be healed by falling asleep and coming back. You will forget them when you wake up. There are some wounds that can’t be healed by falling asleep and coming back. At that point you decide, ‘Let me restart the whole process, let me just start afresh.’ Then you allow the body to have some disease so that the rejuvenation process can start.

According to the vedic tradition no experience goes waste. Every time when you move from one moment to the next moment you are expanding, you are growing, and you are learning. If you look from this angle even your death is auspicious because you are going to the next step. Only if you are not clear about the next step you will feel the fear of death. Read More

Celebrate your Self saying a deep ‘yes’ to you as you are! Celebrate the very Existence of the world by realizing it is an independent intelligence with profound mystery constantly expanding with causeless auspiciousness! Celebrate God as creativity overflowing for no reason! When you celebrate the existence of Self, World and God, you will suddenly see all these three disappear into celebration and what remains is eternal bliss, Nithyananda!

One thing has to be understood very clearly.

The whole of Existence is an auspicious happening. You are part of Existence, so everything happening around you is also auspicious. This is the truth of Existence. Nothing that happens in Existence is inauspicious. Everything is only a blessing.

If this is understood clearly, there is nothing to complain about in life. If this is understood clearly, your very eye becomes a grateful eye. It sees everything as extraordinary. Nothing appears mundane. Everything appears as a miracle. Miracles are continuously happening in front of our eyes. But we continuously miss them! Only because we miss them, life itself appears to be dull sometimes. When we start perceiving them, our entire life becomes a miracle. The truth is, there are too many miracles happening around us in our lives.
If we celebrate the three things, the existence of the self, world and god, we will experience the whole of Existence as a blessing that is happening continuously. Let me explain.

When you celebrate the existence of the self, god and world, all three will reveal their mysteries to you. Please understand that when I say celebrate the self, god and world, I am not giving you moral advice. I am giving you a spiritual technique. Read More

Your intention is the only living mechanism in you, other than your intention everything else is matter in you!

As a descendant of Mahadeva, I bless you all on this auspicious Mahashivaratri, let this night Awaken all of you.

I welcome everyone sitting with us on this auspicious night of Shivaratri. Shiva means causeless auspiciousness. This Cosmos is a reasonless, continuous auspiciousness; it is Nithya Mangalatva for no reason, eternal auspiciousness without any reason, causelessly. On this auspicious day, I wanted to share directly something I heard directly from Arunagiri Yogishwara with all of you as Maha Shivaratri’s message.

The physiological, psychological, neurological ups and downs you go through, perceptions and experiences you have — is NOT you. The real intention you carry about what you want to become that IS you.  Understand, suddenly last few days, continuously this message was going on in my system even in the Conquering Time workshop I was sharing this message. Only today I realized Mahadeva wants this as this Shivaratri message.

Listen carefully, whatever intention you have, that you want to become, that is YOU, other than that psychological, physiological, neurological, experience, perception you go through— is NOT you.

If you feel depressed about your body, and your mind, and about yourself or if you feel excited, elated about your body, your mind and about you, whether depression or excitement, nothing is YOU. Nothing is YOU. When Arunagiri Yogishwara [incarnation of Shiva who appeared to Nithyananda in his childhood] shared these words with me, the way it entered into my system, they way it became part of my cognition, the way it became part of my reality — from that day never physiological, psychological, neurological, ups and downs can bind me in any way.

Listen to this truth and contemplate on it. I will support you to experience that as reality.

I still remember He [Arunagiri Yogishwara] was sitting in this very posture, Sukhasana, having hand on my shoulder, and said ….. uttered the exact words He uttered in Tamil. I know for sure if you are a Tamilian you cannot understand this language, because it is classical Tamil.

I asked Him, “Then what is me?” Read More
