So What!!!

I tell you, if there is a snow storm, God will give you the ability to grow hair just like Polar Bear!  Be very clear, never ever your existence is denied, you are tortured, unless YOU decide to torture yourself.  Neither poverty nor disease or death itself can violate you.

One of the biggest problems we carry before even life attacks us, we conclude and decide life is going to attack us, and commit suicide!  Stop this pattern of constantly feeling violated.  I am telling you, the most stupid pattern a human-being suffers is “feeling violated”, and when you tell them, they get angry towards you.  That is the worst thing!  When I tell them, ‘Arrey, listen!  Even death cannot violate you!  Neither your poverty nor your disease or any depression, nothing can violate you!’, whoever understands that, with whoever’s inner space this statement echoes, you feel connected to it, you just feel, ‘Yes, it seems true’, you are Mahadeva!

I tell you, the one and only basic blood group of Mahadeva…..  I am using a new word: “Mahadeva’s Blood Group”!  If you want to become Mahadeva’s blood group, if you want to join his club of Shiva-gana, just one truth –

“Nothing can violate you!”

– remember that!  Continue reading “So What!!!”

Upanishads turn the mind towards the Source through Soft Power

Let me enter into the verses.  Today, I will be expanding on Upanishad, Ishavasya Upanishad, fourth verse.  Please recite along with me.

अनेजदेकं मनसो जवीयो नैनधेवा आप्नुवन्पुर्वमर्षत् |

तद्धावतोऽन्यानत्येत तिष्ठत् तस्मिन्नपो मातरिश्वा दधाति ||

Anejadhekam Manaso Javeeyo Nainadhdheva Aapnuvanpurvamarshath |

ThadhDhaavathonyanathyetha Thishttath Thasminnapo Maatharishva dhadhDhaathi ||

Listen!  The Upanishad, the ultimate book, “Book of the Books”, declares the definition, the qualities of the Cosmos.  Please understand, the most important instruction human-beings need to be given is about the goal, path, purpose of their life, and setting the context, setting the context for their life.  I tell you, in this fourth verse, Upanishads are trying to set the context for life.

Whatever you think constantly, you will become that.  Please understand, whatever you think constantly, you will become that.  So, Upanishads are setting the context – what you are expected to think, the direction in which your mind needs to move.  Please understand, mind, by its very nature, goes through the senses, means, to the outer perception, because, that is the least resistant path.  Cognizing the external information is easy for the mind.  So, naturally, it moves in that direction.  If mind is forcibly turned towards the Source by the Hard Power…..  Please understand, “Hard Power” means, by the rules, regulations, it becomes suppression and depression.  That is why, mind hates rules.  But, if the mind can be made to understand with the right context to turn towards the Source, that is what I call “Soft Power”, understand?  Soft Power is not that soft really, you need to know!  Soft Power is not that soft! Continue reading “Upanishads turn the mind towards the Source through Soft Power”

Be established in Powerfulness by meditating on “Ekam”, Oneness!

I tell you, this verse, each word of this verse is setting the context for your mind to enter into the Source.  Each word in this verse leads you to meditation.  Sit and cognize!  Intranalyze!

अनेजदेकं मनसो जवीयो नैनधेवा आप्नुवन्पुर्वमर्षत् |

तद्धावतोऽन्यानत्येत तिष्ठत् तस्मिन्नपो मातरिश्वा दधाति ||

Anejadhekam Manaso Javeeyo Nainadhdheva Aapnuvanpurvamarshath |

ThadhDhaavathonyanathyetha Thishttath Thasminnapo Maatharishva dhadhDhaathi || 

My pronunciation is as I heard from my gurus.  My gurus were born and brought up as Tamilians.  So, you will see a thick Tamil accent in this Sanskrit pronunciation.  But, as a respect to them, I am not changing the “Paatta Bheda”; I am just retaining it as it is.

Understand, “Anejadh” (अनेजद्): “Unmoving”.  Sit.  When you sit and contemplate on “Unmoving”, you are setting the context for your mind to reach its Source and purify itself, complete itself.  Cognizing each word in this verse, meditating on each word in this sutra, will lead you towards the Source and lead you towards Completion, lead you towards fulfilment.

Anejadhekam (अनेजदेकं).  Listen!  Yesterday I asked you to meditate on the word “Anejadh” (अनेजद्).  Now, today, we will work just on this one word – “Ekam” (एकम्).  “Ekam” (एकम्) cannot be translated as “One”.  It can only be translated as “Oneness”.  Please understand, if something is “Unmoving”, and it is only “One”, then it should be the largest!  Then nothing else can happen!  It will be a huge one stone!  So, the word “One” for “Ekam” (एकम्) is not the right translation.  “Oneness” is the right translation.  Because, in “One”, internal evolving, expression, is not possible; but, in “Oneness”, internal expansion, evolution, everything is possible.  Understand, “One” is dead; “Oneness” is alive!  The very word “One” means “dead”!  “Oneness” means “LIVING”! Continue reading “Be established in Powerfulness by meditating on “Ekam”, Oneness!”

If you grasp ‘What is “Unmoving”?’, you will grasp, ‘Who Am I?’, ‘What Am I?’

I will expand on the fourth verse of Ishavasya Upanishad.  Please recite along with me.

अनेजदेकं मनसो जवीयो नैनधेवा आप्नुवन्पुर्वमर्षत् |

तद्धावतोऽन्यानत्येत तिष्ठत् तस्मिन्नपो मातरिश्वा दधाति ||

Anejadhekam Manaso Javeeyo Nainadhdheva Aapnuvanpurvamarshath |

ThadhDhaavathonyanathyetha Thishttath Thasminnapo Maatharishva dhadhDhaathi ||

 

Understand, yesterday I was expanding on why these qualities of Consciousness, Eesha, are described.  As I said, even if you describe a negative quality, Eesha becomes Eeshwara.  The moment you try to perceive, relate, connect, even to become one with Eesha, he has to grace us as Eeshwara.  Only then he can make us as Eesha.

Please listen!  Again and again, I repeat, “Aham” can never become “Shivoham”.  Only Shiva can extend himself and just take the whole “Aham” inside and radiate as “Shivoham”.  Eesha, the pure space, the Consciousness, without any attributes, you cannot even give the attribute of “Super-Consciousness” or “Super Super-Consciousness”.  The attributeless.  I can say, “attributeless” is not a proper word; that word doesn’t convey the meaning.  “Unattributable” – you cannot attribute anything.  That Consciousness, the moment you try to describe, positively or negatively, the moment you try to describe – ‘Oh, it is compassionate.  It is ever-loving.  It is graceful.’ – then you are giving a positive description.  Or, if you do negative description – ‘It cannot be realized by mind, speech, senses, where the life energy moves and expands.’ – where you give the negative description – ‘Gods of senses cannot overtake and go beyond it.’ – “Nainadhdheva Aapnuvanpurvamarshath” (नैनधेवा आप्नुवन्पुर्वमर्षत्), ‘It cannot be cut by the sword and what not’. 

Understand, whether you give positive attributions or negative descriptions, the Eesha becomes Eeshwara to support us to experience Eesha.  But Eesha and Eeshwara are not two; it is pure Oneness.  Listen!  Eesha and Eeshwara are not two; it is pure Oneness. 

That is why working on the Consciousness, whether during the positive attributes, or through the negative descriptions, makes us experience Eesha, the Consciousness. Continue reading “If you grasp ‘What is “Unmoving”?’, you will grasp, ‘Who Am I?’, ‘What Am I?’”

Context is more important than God itself in Hindu Tradition!

अनेजदेकं मनसो जवीयो नैनधेवा आप्नुवन्पुर्वमर्षत् |

तद्धावतोऽन्यानत्येत तिष्ठत् तस्मिन्नपो मातरिश्वा दधाति ||

Anejadhekam Manaso Javeeyo Nainadhdheva Aapnuvanpurvamarshath |

ThadhDhaavathonyanathyetha Thishttath Thasminnapo Maatharishva dhadhDhaathi || 

All these qualities are described:  “Consciousness is unmoving, One, and swifter than the mind”.  I may not want to say “One”; “Oneness”!  The qualities of Consciousness are described here so that you won’t miss the context.

Listen!  If you go to a temple without having the right context, it may be just a nice art, kind of a museum, stone carved in beautiful shapes, sizes.  Nice; that’s all.  But, if you know the context and go, it is a place to connect with God, Consciousness.  It is a place to celebrate enlightenment, Living Advaitha. Continue reading “Context is more important than God itself in Hindu Tradition!”

Consciousness is unmoving, One, and swifter than the mind!

Now, the fourth verse in Ishavasya Upanishad.  Please recite along with me:

अनेजदेकं मनसो जवीयो नैनधेवा आप्नुवन्पुर्वमर्षत् |

तद्धावतोऽन्यानत्येत तिष्ठत् तस्मिन्नपो मातरिश्वा दधाति ||

Anejadhekam Manaso Javeeyo Nainadhdheva Aapnuvanpurvamarshath |

ThadhDhaavathonyanathyetha Thishttath Thasminnapo Maatharishva dhadhDhaathi ||

 

Actually, the following verses enumerate the attributes, qualities which are special and exclusive to Eeshwara:

“He is Stable.  He is the only One.  He has Swiftness which surpasses the agility of the mind.  He was present before anything came into being.  He existed in the beginning.  He is the embodiment of Jnana, truthful knowledge, enlightenment, wisdom, erudition.  He is all-pervading, Omnipresent, Omniscient, and all-knowing.  He is beyond the comprehension of even the gods such as Indra.  He can overtake others who are running fast, even though he does not run or move himself a little bit.  And it is really relying upon his powers and authority that the various gods such as the Wind God are successfully able to do deeds such as producing rain and enabling mortal creatures to have life to live and bear the prana, the spark of life, and the vital winds that sustain life in a creature.” 

I have my own translation which I will share with you all.  Listen! Continue reading “Consciousness is unmoving, One, and swifter than the mind!”

Guru is the powerful wake-up call towards your spiritual possibility!

Having all the necessary intellectual understanding to live Advaitha is “Jnana”. Having all the intellectual understanding, listen, having all the necessary intellectual understanding is “Jnana”.

Having all the necessary feeling-connection strength to live Advaitha is “Bhakthi”.

Having all the necessary cognitions to live Advaitha is “Vijnana”.

Listen! Having all the intellectual understanding which is necessary to live Advaitha.

Living Advaitha” means, radiating all powerful, all knowledge, always blissful, Satchidanandamaya.

Satchidananda is not a fantasy, please be very clear. It is not a fantasy of the Hindu brain. No! It is not a fairy tale from some old rishis of Taraka Vana or Naimisharanya. No! Listen! Listen! Satchitananda is not fantasy. It is reality! Satchitananda is reality! I am not interested in debating with the people who call this as fantasy. I am only interested in giving this experience to people who want to receive it. With more debates, more time will be wasted. I am not interested in that. I am not interested in leading to unnecessary debate; but I am always ready to clarify all the possible doubts. Continue reading “Guru is the powerful wake-up call towards your spiritual possibility!”

Whatever you hold with fear of losing it, precisely that will be taken away from you!

Please understand, the perception evolving, evolution of the perception is a gift happening to you, which is just happening from Perception to Fact, Fact to Truth, Truth to Reality. And anybody who stops the evolution of perception commits spiritual suicide, “Atma Hathya”, understand? “Atma Hathya”, that is the word I will use. Killing the soul, the possibility! Killing the soul and possibility! I am telling you, not to frighten you, not to correct you, not to control you, not even I am interested in guiding you. And I know nobody listens to me! After talking twelve-thousand hours last fifteen years, I am very clear on my conclusion that nobody listens to me! I am talking for me to listen to me, understand? With this clarity I am declaring this truth. Upanishads just declare their own strength by their own statements. They don’t need any author to authenticate them. Same way, whatever I am talking, the dharma, the truth, I am revealing it for myself! The listener’s listening does not need to authenticate what is being uttered. With this clarity I am uttering these words:

Listen!

WHATEVER YOU HOLD WITH FEAR OF LOSING IT, EXACTLY THAT WILL ONLY BE TAKEN AWAY FROM YOU!

I am telling you…..

People ask me, ‘What is this, Swamiji! I am such a good person. I never cheated anybody. But my wealth is taken away. But these guys who cheat everyone, their wealth and all is not taken away. They are all living wealthily.’ Continue reading “Whatever you hold with fear of losing it, precisely that will be taken away from you!”

Life is all about evolving your cognition from Perception to Fact, Fact to Truth, Truth to Reality

ईशावास्यमिदं सर्वं यत्किञ्च जगत्यां जगत् ।
तेन त्यक्तेन भुञ्जीथा मा गृधः कस्यस्विद्धनम् ॥

Eeshaavaasyamidham Sarvam Yathkincha Jagathyaam Jagath |
Thena Thyakthena Bhunjeethaa Ma Gridhah Kasyasviddhanam ||

 The translation is:

“By the Consciousness filled must this all be, Whatever moving thing there is in the ever-moving world. With this renounced, you may enjoy. Covet not the wealth of anyone at all. 

Listen!  Yesterday I was expanding these four words.  I will expand those four words a little more deep, and then move to the next.  Listen! 

PERCEPTION: Whatever your senses can perceive in a limited Time and Space.
Second, FACT: Your senses perceiving with more Time and Space.
TRUTH: With a lot more Time and Space, even your perception evolves.  Truth!
REALITY is: Existence as it is, beyond your perception and Time and Space. Continue reading “Life is all about evolving your cognition from Perception to Fact, Fact to Truth, Truth to Reality”

Neither you need to be saved, nor you need to be Saviour! Wake up!

Once, I was sitting and having a discussion with one of the Acharya Mahamandaleshwars’, He said beautifully….. I was asking him, ‘Why are we doing all the great rituals at the feet of the Dhwajasthambha – the Flag Pole – in the Akhada?’ He said, ‘Swamiji, that is the best way of presenting. The Flag Pole is the best representation of Dharma without intimidating us in course of time.’ If you put a statue of Chathur Veda, Veda Maatha, anything, in course of time the next generation will use even that to intimidate themselves. It will become one more god! … Continue reading Neither you need to be saved, nor you need to be Saviour! Wake up!

Whatever you perceive as changeful inside and outside you, even when you perceive as changeful inside and outside you, it is Consciousness, which is beyond any change!

Please understand, now what I am revealing is, layer by layer, Akashic Records, about this one verse!

OM! If I have to expand on this, OM! The sound of whatever is, the vibration of whatever is still vibrating, vibration of whatever is still vibrant! OM! OM! OM! It has to be experienced! OM! OM! OM!

ईशावास्यमिदं सर्वं यत्किञ्च जगत्यां जगत् ।

Eeshaavaasyamidham Sarvam Yathkincha Jagathyaam Jagath |

Conclusive! “Idham Sarvam” ( इदम् सर्वं)! “Vaasyam” (वास्यम्)! No other doubts – “may be”, “must be”, “could be”, “this is what should be”, “what else can be”. No! ‘This is what is my experience. I don’t know. It is up to you.’ No! Nothing of that sort!

ईशावास्यमिदं सर्वं यत्किञ्च जगत्यां जगत् ।

Eeshaavaasyamidham Sarvam Yathkincha Jagathyaam Jagath |

Whatever you perceive as changeful inside and outside you, even when you perceive as changeful inside and outside you, it is God, Consciousness, which is beyond any change!

Listen! The different levels of understanding: Continue reading “Whatever you perceive as changeful inside and outside you, even when you perceive as changeful inside and outside you, it is Consciousness, which is beyond any change!”

When you are in the space of Completion, then what you perceive as you(Jeeva) and everything else(Jagath) is GOD(Eeshwara)!

I am entering into the first verse of the Upanishad. Before entering into every verse, I feel like wipe yourself completely, clean, be fresh, so that this verse enters into you as nectar and starts functioning.

Listen! Listen! Listen!

ईशावास्यमिदं सर्वं यत्किञ्च जगत्यां जगत् ।

तेन त्यक्तेन भुञ्जीथा मा गृधः कस्यस्विद्धनम् ॥ 1 ॥

Eeshaavaasyamidham Sarvam Yathkincha Jagathyaam Jagath |

Thena Thyakthena Bhunjeethaa Ma Gridhah Kasyasviddhanam ||

The translation:

By the Consciousness enveloped must this all be, whatever moving thing there is in the moving world. With this renounced you may enjoy. Covet not the wealth of anyone at all.

Listen!

By the Consciousness enveloped must this all be, whatever moving thing there is in the moving world. With this renounced you may enjoy. Covet not the wealth of anyone at all.

Listen! “Eesha”! Understand this word. This word means “Consciousness which has all the auspicious qualities, and which is causal, actual material source of everything is, which we may know or we may not know. And, it is not only the source; it permeates.” Please understand, “Eesha” is not just the source of these plants, stones, you, me; it continues to permeate, fill all of us and everything is, even when we are in this form.

Listen! The consciousness is not just the source; it is the base. Not just the base material; it continues to be the base which keeps the material together in this shape. Continue reading “When you are in the space of Completion, then what you perceive as you(Jeeva) and everything else(Jagath) is GOD(Eeshwara)!”
