When your ability to see and visualize fails, your ability to think, talk, verbalize fails, your ability to connect the memory and make meaning out of it fails, when all these fails what can hold you, you should be putting all your time, life, energy to build that chamber in your life, that safe chamber is what I call Nirvakalpa Samadhi

The 3rd and 4th verse of the Kenopanishad:

na tatra cakṣurgacchati na vāg gacchati no manaḥ

na vidmo na vijānīmo yathaitadanuśiṣyāt || 3 ||

anyadeva tadviditādatho aviditādadhi

iti śuśruma pūrveṣāṁ ye nastad vyācacakṣire || 4 ||

Listen, the literal translation of the verse.

Where the eyes goes not, the speech goes not, nor the mind and intellect, we do not know, we do not understand, how that Reality, Consciousness can be taught, it is distinct from the known, as it is far beyond man’s finite objective nature, that is, what the mind eyes ears or speech, the senses can perceive and it is beyond the unknown as it can be known by man’s divine infinite subjective nature. Thus we have heard from the ancient masters who revealed and explained that to us.

When you experience intuition, not only you get the intellectual clarity, but you also get enough power to execute it!

Let me now describe how a mind-body system that is free from samskaras will improve intuition and innovation.

Intuition is a wonderful subject. If you ask modern day CEOs, how they took major decisions in their lives, what caused the turning point in their lives, again and again their answer surprises us. Again and again they tell us that their success came from something beyond their intellect, something that gave them the energy or the guts to take the decisions. This is not just the case with successful CEOs, it is the same with scientists also.

The other day I had a chance to have lunch with Dr Charles Townes.

I asked him ‘Sir, how did your discovery happen? How were you able to do it?’

He answered in a beautiful way, ‘I was just sitting in a park in Washington DC; suddenly something happened. The conclusion was there in me. Suddenly the conclusion was revealed to me. I penned down what I experienced. Now I had a big difficulty. I had the conclusion but not the steps. I was not able to present this to anybody else because I knew only the conclusion, I didn’t know the steps.’

This happened not only with Charles Townes , it had also happened with Albert Einstein. He says, ‘Whatever new happened to me, came through intuition and not through intellect.’ He summed it up beautifully, saying, ‘ Read More

How does the mind work ? What are engrams or samskaras ? How do they influence our being ?

What do I mean by the word, ‘state of the leader’?

A true leader is a person who is ready to take responsibility consciously, who is ready to handle life consciously, who is not constantly dependent on the past or his memory. If you are dependent on your memory, if you are dependent on the past to take decisions, please be very clear, you will be a follower. You cannot be a leader. Responding spontaneously to situations is what I call responsibility. A responsible leader is a person who is able to respond spontaneously to situations, who is fresh and continuously keeps himself alive, who is not caught in the past.

Let us understand how the mind works – how we receive data, process it and make decisions.

For example, you are seeing something through your eye. Of course, you receive information through all the five senses – eyes, ears, nose, tongue and touch. Read More
