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

You have an independent intelligence in your system which runs your life without your interference!

Please understand, energy is compassion, energy is intelligence, and energy is bliss. Energy, compassion, intelligence and bliss are four sides of the same pillar. If all four are present, it is super-consciousness. If any one is missing it is unconsciousness. When the energy manifests itself through the head, it is intelligence. When energy manifests itself through the heart, it is compassion. When energy manifests itself through the being it is pure energy. When energy does not manifest outside but remains inside, it is bliss!

An important thing to understand which may shock you is, you have an independent intelligence in your system which runs your life without your interference. Right now, you think you need to interfere with your intelligence in order to run your life happily. But the truth is the intelligence with which you came down to planet earth, the intelligence which created your very body, can run your life beautifully for you. The intelligence or the energy based on which you created your body at birth, is called your bio-memory. Read More

Only acts of service coming from Pure consciousness can be truly effective.

Swamiji, You teach us meditation. What is the point of meditation when the rest of the world is suffering? Instead of meditating, we can do some service.

A small story:

There was once a king who was known to be compassionate. He used to go around his kingdom unannounced to see how his subjects were.

One day, he saw a small boy catching a pigeon. The boy held the pigeon tightly in his hands as it tried to flutter desperately. The king asked the boy, ‘Don’t you see the bird is afraid and struggling? Why don’t you free it?’ Read More

Meditation technique for experiencing Gratitude

  • Every day, just sit by yourself for half an hour.
  • Close your eyes and allow any thought, person or situation to come to your mind.
  • If it is a positive thought, a person you love or a situation that you cherish, feel deep gratitude for it and see it go away.
  • If it is a negative thought, or a person you don’t like, or an unpleasant situation, feel gratitude for that too and bless it.
  • Anything that comes to your mind, bless it with deep gratitude.
  • You will see that in a few days, your whole attitude becomes soft and compassionate.
  • You will start seeing things with great compassion and receptivity.

Lust will become love the moment you add sanctity and respect to it. Technique to move from lust to love

Changing the object is never a solution. Changing the attitude (cognition) is the solution.

  • Make a list of things you feel attached to or things you feel greedy about. It might be a habit, perhaps a particular pleasure or object or person.
  • Include anything or anyone on the list that makes you feel possessive, greedy or lustful.
  • Then just sit and meditate with a deep and sacred feeling. Anything can become sacred when you are respectful and feeling connected to it.
  • Bring in respect towards the object, or person.

With a lustful attitude, you will make even a person into an object because you try to possess the person. With an attitude of love and respect, you will make even an object into a living being!  Lust will become love the moment you add sanctity and respect to it.

Promote each object or person, elevate them to the level of a being. Suddenly you will see that the lust has transformed into love. The passion has become compassion. Then every relationship is such an ecstasy, and you experience real love.

In your Creation bring Integrity, in your Sustenance bring Authenticity, in your Destruction bring Responsibility, when you are in delusion decide to throw yourself away and get into Enriching!

The manifest and unmanifest components of Sadashiva is part of you.  The manifest is Sadyojatam, Tatpurusham, Aghoram, Vamadevam, Ishanam. If I put it in your user-friendly language— I should tell you, I am not translating, I am putting in user-friendly language, means roughly equating it. Tatpurusha, Aghora, Vamadeva, Sadyojata, Ishana—these are the five manifest aspects of Sadashiva. If I have to put it into user-friendly language, I should say—creation, maintenance, destruction, delusion and liberation.  Listen. You go through all the five. When you are in the mode of creation, if you add Integrity, you will manifest Sadāshiva’s creation. Listen. When you are in the mode of creation, add Integrity to you—you will manifest Sadashiva.

Let me repeat. When you are in the creation mode, add Integrity to it.

You may ask, “What is creation mode?”

When you feel like doing something active. It can be your office work, it can be manifesting wealth, it can be doing something for name and fame, including career activities. Or it can be physically creating something; art, painting, drawing, even sexual desires, activities—all this belongs to creation when you are in the creation mode, bring Integrity to you, you will manifest Sadashiva—your creativity plus integrity is Sadāshiva’s creation energy, is Sadyoyata. Only from Satya, anything can be born, Jāta means born. Sadyojata means born out of Integrity. Anything, which is born out of Integrity, only will stand forever. So the creation face of Sadashiva is Sadyojata in all your creativity. It can be as simple as cooking to as complicated as manifesting wealth. It can be as lower as you think; sexual desires, or it can be as high as higher, as creating your Enlightenment. Any creation—including manifesting powers—any creation, including manifesting powers, add Integrity to it. Out of Satya, anything born, Sadyojata, anything born out of Integrity will stay forever and do good to you. 

You all have that creation mood in you, that is Aham.  When you add Integrity to it you will become Sadāshivoham, in your creativity. 

Understand. Add Integrity to all your creation. Read More

Why the bad people are so rich, good people are so poor. Bad people are so healthy, good people are having disease?

Listen! Listen! Whether you are good or bad is going to be decided based on whether your acts are complete with your concept of life. Understand, if your concept of life is all about pleasure and money, and your acts are complete with it, you will have that. That’s all! There is nobody to judge whether money is the ultimate purpose of life. Forget about that! God is not a judge, please understand. He only sees the kind of Completion you are carrying. And, ultimately, he does not even see that. It is an automated mechanism as far as the functioning goes on. So, listen, “if HE wants he can interfere” does not mean HE goes on interfering. No! So, be very clear, God is not sitting and doing some judgement, passing some judgements about you every day – ‘Oh, this fellow, all the time running behind money! Let me punish him!’ No! In course of time, whenever you are deciding constantly For LIFE, you yourself may realize there is something more prior, you should give more priority, more importance, than money. You may evolve. Your idea about life may change. You may reinvent yourself, feeling, ‘No, there is something which is a little more than money. There is something in life which is a little more than money.’ So, you may start reinventing yourself. Then, let your acts be complete to that new idea of you, the way you reinvented you.

So, understand, deciding FOR LIFE, again and again and again, not entertaining laziness, not entertaining boredom, being in the space of constant excitement, being in the state of constant passion, compassion, excitement!

So, understand, the only way to be free from Karmas, the bondage created by the acts, by deeds, the only way is: Decide FOR LIFE! Decide FOR LIFE!

Everything you are having, and you want to have, you are qualified for all that and much more, because, Life is celebrating itself through you!

Listen! Today I will expand on the last part of this sutra:

ईशावास्यमिदं सर्वं यत्किञ्च जगत्यां जगत् ।

तेन त्यक्तेन भुञ्जीथा मा गृधः कस्यस्विद्धनम् ॥

Eeshaavaasyamidham Sarvam Yathkincha Jagathyaam Jagath |

Thena Thyakthena Bhunjeethaa Maa Gridhah Kasyasviddhanam ||

Whatever is, which is changing and established in changing, is filled by Consciousness, Pure Consciousness.

Listen! Whenever change is happening outside you, inside you, don’t feel life is sadistic, it is punishing you, it is taking away something which you really like or with which you settled down just now.

Ability to understand that every change is a possibility for you to reinvent yourself, is “Renunciation”, understand?

“Raaga” means: “Obsession”, “Attachment”.

“Araaga” means: “Detachment”, “Dead”.

“Viraaga” means: Understanding that the change is established in change, and that is filled with Consciousness. Read More

  • No question of powerlessness.
  • Love, Compassion, Non-violence all that will start happening only in right context.
  • Which part of you either you are too attached or don’t like i.e. resist, you will see the same again and again in the mirror. 
  • Waiting for Life to inspire us is stupidity.
  • More than what you say, how you hold yourself; that spontaineity is going to play a very major role in Enriching.
  • Compassion is directly connected to Self-confidence.
  • The moment I freed myself from the idea of vacation, My whole life is a vacation. – Swamiji
  • When you operate from the space of Completion, the whole thing falls in place.
  • Whenever you have to choose between compassion and right, always choose compassion, you will always be right. – Ahimsa Paramodharmah !!

Let the world not create words in you. let the words create world around you!

Authenticity means keeping the ahamkaara, mamakaara, anyaakaara in tune being integrated. Being established and respond to life from ahamkaara : what you believe ass you, mamakaara : what you project yourself to others, anyakaara : what others believe as you which is independent of what you project as you. you are responsible even for anyaakaara. Only when you feel responsible even for what others hold you which is independent of your projection or your feeling. You may feel how can I be responsible for how others perceive  me? Only when you feel responsible, you will feel powerful, empowered, responsible. You will not feel powerless. Life cannot bring any surprises to you. I will expand step by step.

Take responsibility for your ahamkaara, mamakaara and anyakaara. No suffering can come to you. No one can bring suffering to you. It is a part of the anyakaara we don’t want to take responsibility that is why life brings surprises to you. Life brings surprise sufferings to you. When the churning starts, everyone was waiting only for nectar. That is why poison was suffering for them. But Maha Deva was waiting for poison also that is why it could not bring suffering to him. Neelakanta is the symbol he takes responsibility for the anyakaara. In your life also you have alt he 3 – mamakaara, ahamkaara, anyakaara. Take responsibility for all the three. When you take the responsibility for all the three you will feel empowered. You won’t feel powerless. You won’t feel something unexpected is happening. Just let your inner space be completely integrated with the words you utter with authenticity. If you can’t be made to believe you are wrong, you are not wrong.
