You cannot fight life or death. They are both beyond you, out of your control. You can marvel at them and be happy and joyous.

When you understand what Kṛṣṇa is saying in these verses (2.26 – 2.30) you get over any fear of death . In fact you will celebrate death.

Sometime ago, when I was delivering a discourse in India, news arrived that my father had died. I continued with the discourse. Later that night, many of our disciples traveled with me to Tiruvannamalai where the body lay. If you see the videos of this event, you will find that my mother never once cried. She is a very traditional person, brought up in a rural environment that sets great importance on social behavior. When one’s husband dies one is naturally heartbroken; especially as in the case of my mother and father, who were very close to each other. His departure would have been a great loss to her. She understood the meaning of these verses of Kṛṣṇa without me ever having to explain them to her. Read More

Just decide that life is for others! All the best things will be showered on you. You will get back to the space you were in when you were born, the purest space of life, the imperishable space!

Violence and killing are not merely physical acts. They are psychological compulsions acted out of incompletion in the physical realm. The ruler of a country who orders warfare against others is the violent one, even if he hides behind his throne. Violence of the mind carries on as the vāsana or desires; the essence of the spirit, that incarnates from birth to birth. That is the horror that does not end with death. The spirit is violated, degraded, and degenerated by this attitude of violence.

A violent man is always a coward, an inauthentic person who does not have the courage to face the truth. He does not have the sensitivity to treat others as he expects to be treated. He goes out-of-integrity, losing his power of words, isolating himself in a cocoon of lies, using the excuse of defending himself, and commits violence against others. Read More

Sāṅkhya does not speak about God, because completion itself is given the place of God.

Please listen!

Anything which does not allow, anything which stands in between you and the present moment, acting as a barrier; which does not allow you to connect completely with life and with other people in your life in the present moment, is what I call incompletion.

So, the first thing you need to do in life is bring completion. Kṛṣṇa does not mean that we existed in the form that we are here now, or that He was present always as Kṛṣṇa in the form we imagine Him to be, with a flute and a peacock feather. He means that our spirits which are eternal, always existed and will always exist. In our spiritual state, that of our soul, we are divine, one with the universal energy, Brahman.

The gist of the second chapter, Sāṅkhya Yogaḥ is that you are the soul, that you are complete, that you are divine and that you are God. Read More

You were there in the past, you are in the present and you will be in the future; you do not die. You existed before birth and will remain after death. Whatever dies, can never live. Whatever lives can never die.

Sañjaya says Kṛṣṇa was smiling as He uttered these words. Kṛṣṇa must have been laughing at Arjuna. ‘You fool; you pretend to be wise and quote the scriptures.Who do you think you are quoting the scriptures to? What can you understand of what I Myself have said?

Kṛṣṇa continues: ‘Never was there a time when I did not exist, nor you and all these kings, and never in the future shall any of us cease to be.’

na tv evāhaṁ jātu nāsaṁ na tvaṁ neme janādhipāḥ I

na caiva na bhaviṣyāmaḥ sarve vayam ataḥ paraṁ II 2.12 Read More

It is this readiness to surrender to the Master that brings completion to Arjuna and enriches him to take the responsibility to win the war, which in reality is the war within himself.

Despite what Kṛṣṇa had said with total clarity, that Arjuna should get up and fight, Arjuna now recounts all his previous arguments. It is as if he had not listened to Kṛṣṇa at all.

To become a Sannyāsi, Śrī Kṛṣṇa says, ‘Go to Sannyāsa out of completion.’ Bhagavān is only saying one thing, ‘Out of completion, take any decision. Out of completion, take any decision!’

He once again implores Kṛṣṇa, ‘You, as the Lord of the Universe, have the right to destroy what you please. As the Lord, You destroyed the demons Madhu and Keśin and many other enemies. How can I, a mere mortal, be bold enough to wage war against my grandfather and my teacher, with the intent to kill them? They are ones I should worship, not destroy. I shall be condemned if I fight them.’ Read More

Whenever you listen to you, you listen to others. When you don’t listen to others, you don’t listen to you also.

Listen! Please come to the space of listening. Many teachers tell you, ‘However much you listen, unless you practice, it won’t help you.’ I tell you now, ‘However much you try to practice, unless you listen, it won’t help you!

The problem is that we do not trust ourselves and our innate intelligence to respond to a question without preparation. That is why we start preparing the reply even before listening. Whenever we allow our incompletions to wake up and interfere into our thinking or cognition process, listening stops.

Hearing is not listening.

Integrity, the power of words starts with listening, continues with listening. Human beings miss life when they miss listening. For a person who wants to begin the life, the first thing he needs to learn is listening.

Listening is God. Just by listening you experience God! Read More

When was the last time you really listened to your own words?

It is here that we enter into the real Gītā. It is from here that Bhagavān or God, Nārāyaṇa starts speaking and singing the Gītopaniṣad into the listening of Nara Arjuna, and through Arjuna into the listening of
the whole of humanity. Until now Kṛṣṇa was speaking as a man, as Vāsudeva Kṛṣṇa, in His human form, but it is only from here that Kṛṣṇa sings as Parabrahma Kṛṣṇa, in His divine state as Bhagavān, the universal Kṛṣṇa.

Understand, only an intelligent man will allow the other person to speak. Only a man of completion will provide integrated listening to himself and others. We all speak continuously to each other, but a conversation does not really happen. When the other person speaks we do not listen; we are busy preparing our own reply. We never speak into the listening of others, we just speak into the non-listening of others! We need intelligence, we need integrity to allow the other person to speak into our listening.

Listening is directly connected to your ability to handle reality as it is, without creating your own unconscious ideas and conclusions.

Consciousness is all-pervasive on which the past, present, future is painted and You are the consciousness!. How much of freedom, ability you have, to breathe without suffocation about your past, only that much of freedom with ability to breathe without suffocation, you will have over your future!

Realise that the past happening, its impact and impressions, the present happening, its impact and impressions, the future happening, its expectations, hopes, ideas, impacts and impressions, are all paramashiva – ultimate auspiciousness!

The short sighted, narrow, egoistic mind, experiences the future as “yet to happen” and past as “already happened”. This is delusion.  The most powerful delusion human consciousness suffers with is concluding that the past has already happened! Concluding that the future is absolute and is going to be “new”, is the most powerful delusion! Worst delusion! Read More

Making your identity redundant means living constantly with the clarity – ‘you are your intention to be, all the physiological, psychological, neurological ups and downs are not you’,

Identity completion. Understand! Identity completion, listen to this word.

This is the most prominent, most important, first quality of Shivagana, person filled with Shiva. Shivagana means his length, breadth, depth all filled with Shiva, is a Shivagana.

Most of our problems are all about your identity crisis, not reality. Bring completion to your identity. Your identity survives by constantly creating crisis for you

The first and foremost quality of Shivagana is identity completion; means, make your old identity till this moment, the identity you carry, make it as redundant. Understand! Decide! It is no more useful to you.

Even if you feel, “No, no, no! There are 2-3 things I can use from that. I was a doctor, I studied the whole MBBS, all that memory is there in that baggage. Shall I just pick up that and leave the remaining?” “No, no, no! I was a banker and my whole banking intelligence is there in that baggage. Shall I take that and leave the rest?” “No, no, no! I was a lawyer, it means whole thing is garbage so can I take just that knowledge and leave the rest?” Read More

Till you are enlightened there can never be Complete Completion, but your Completion is more stronger than your small incompletions, so incompletions become irrelevant, is Completion

I’ll recite 7th, 8th , 9th  verses. Please recite along with me :

yatccakṣuṣā na paśyati yena cakṣūṁṣi paśyati
tadeva brahma tvaṁ viddhi nedaṁ yadidamupāsate || 7 ||

yatcchrotreṇa na śṛṇoti yena śrotramidaṁ śrutam
tadeva brahma tvaṁ viddhi nedaṁ yadidamupāsate || 8 ||

Ninth verse :

yatprāṇena na prāṇiti yena prāṇaḥ praṇīyate
tadeva brahma tvaṁ viddhi nedaṁ yadidamupāsate || 9 ||

Actually the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th – all the 5 verses are powerful repetition. Please understand……when a speaker, ahh Dharma….ummm…..I think Karma…..Karma is Karma…..Karma, karmunda, Karma. This is not powerful repetition.  He’s just so powerless, he does not understand what he is going to talk. And he goes on repeating something. He’s not powerful repetition. Read More

Meditation technique for Global Peace

The way to achieve global peace is to create individual peace. The meditation for global peace is a collective meditation. This is a very simple but very powerful meditation. Sit in one circle or concentric circles, holding hands so that you hold the hand of the person on your right with your right hand palm facing down, signifying ‘giving’ peace and bliss, while you offer your left hand palm facing up to ‘receive’ peace and bliss from the person on your left. This connected circle of people generates a powerful energy cycle. The meditative energy of one person is shared by all others. This meditation can be done for at least 21 minutes.

H.D.H Paramahamsa Bhagawan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam’s advent on planet earth is to create a new cycle of individual consciousness causing Collective Consciousness to enter the Superconscious zone

Enlightened beings are untouched by the qualities, good or bad that they come in contact with. Their presence is so intense that everybody and everything is touched by the love and compassion that is their very nature.

A story from the life of enlightened master Buddha:

There was a bandit by the name of Angulimala. He used to live in a forest that many people had to cross. He used to ambush the people and rob them of their valuables. Then he would cut off the little finger of the person and make a garland of all the fingers. That is why he was called Angulimala or garland of fingers. Once when traveling, Buddha was about to cross the forest. People warned him about the terrifying Angulimala.

But Buddha was unperturbed and continued walking. Deep inside the forest, Angulimala jumped out of the bushes and shouted threateningly at Buddha, ‘Stand still!’ Buddha stopped and replied, ‘I am still. May you be still.’ Angulimala for the first time in his life was shaken to his very being. Something about Buddha touched him deeply. He could not even force himself to attack Buddha. His hands froze. He just fell at the feet of Buddha crying and begging for forgiveness! Read More
