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. Continue reading “Sāṅkhya does not speak about God, because completion itself is given the place of God.”
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 Continue reading “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.”
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.’ Continue reading “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.”
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! Continue reading “Whenever you listen to you, you listen to others. When you don’t listen to others, you don’t listen to you also.”
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.
Continue reading “When was the last time you really listened to your own words?”
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! Continue reading “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!”
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?” Continue reading “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’,”
I’ll recite 7th, 8th , 9th verses. Please recite along with me :

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.

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 … Continue reading Meditation technique for Global Peace
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! Continue reading “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”
Much of what is happening around us is the result of all our past actions. At least in this present moment, let us create more and more positive consciousness and energy so that we will avoid the same challenges and calamities in the future. If we get agitated and disturbed, then we will create more violence and negativity in our efforts to try to stop the existing violence. Violence cannot stop violence. Blood cannot wash away blood.
Buddha says beautifully that if we start thinking in the line of ‘an eye for an eye’, the whole world will become blind! If we start working with the logic of ‘an eye for an eye’, then a person from this group will take an eye from a person in the other group, and a person from that group will take an eye from a person in this group. Then the whole world will become blind!
The only thing you can do is start creating more and more positive and peaceful ambience inside your being, and continuously work to create peace and love outside your field. That is the only possible solution.
Give the intelligence to others to make better choices, that is the real help you can give
Continue reading “The collective consciousness is raised in a much more powerful way when meditation is done as a group!”
First, we have to understand that every major decision taken at the higher level of power and governance is an expression of collective positivity or collective negativity, because it is the mass consciousness or collective consciousness that creates the leaders. So before blaming others like leaders, politicians, or officials, if we can put a little bit of energy towards ourselves and start working to create more positive consciousness in our inner space, we will be doing something really useful.
Peace needs to be brought into the individual’s heart. Then it will radiate like the fragrance of a flower and transform the whole planet earth.
There are two ways to handle anything.
One is just talking about things and the other is actually doing things. If you are interested in just talking about things, then you will blame everybody around you, starting from your neighbor to the politicians, business and world leaders. Blaming and criticizing everybody is not going to be directly useful. Not only that, it will really pull down your own energy. This is one common, but ineffective way of working. Continue reading “Realize that all leaders are channels of the collective positivity or negativity created by the masses”
