What exactly happens at the time of leaving the body during death?

This question cannot be answered by a living person as he has not experienced death. It cannot be answered by a dead person since he cannot come back to narrate the experience. Only an enlightened being, a person who has gone through death consciously and come back anew, can exactly explain what happens during death.

I am going to reveal the mystery of death now. This may be surprising, even shocking to many of you. But this is the truth. Whether you believe it or not, accept it or not, this is what happens at the time of death. We do not just have one body. The physical body is just one of the seven bodies we have. It is the only gross body that can be felt and seen in space-time. However, we actually have seven layers or bodies or planes of existence. Since these layers have a subtle existence they cannot be seen or felt by the ordinary eye.

Each of the bodies holds a corresponding emotion. For example, the pranic body holds all the desires that arise in life. The mental body holds all the feelings of guilt experienced in life. The etheric body holds the experiences of mental pain felt in life.

When the spirit leaves the body it crosses all the seven body layers. The physical body dies. But, the remaining six bodies do not totally die. If you are holding a lot of desires in your life, all those unfulfilled desires are held in the pranic body. So even though the physical body dies, the pranic body does not die. When the life force leaves the pranic body, the being experiences tremendous suffering. Read More

Do not engage yourself in the bondages from the body and through the body, re-cognize you are Pure Consciousness!

Constantly cognizing you are Consciousness; you are not father of somebody; you are not son of somebody; you are not daughter of somebody; you are not wife of somebody; you are not brother of somebody; you are not son of somebody; you are not even disciple of somebody. Understand even I cannot corrupt you. Then who can corrupt you? You are Pure Consciousness.

You can cherish your disciplehood, enjoy your discipleship, celebrate your discipleship as a nostalgia, as a sweet nostalgia, how I bow down to Mahadeva, how I fall flat in front of the deities in the temple, just as nostalgia. “In those days, when you came as Arunagiri Yogeshwara, how I enjoyed it so I remember those beautiful vacation moments, now I bow down to You,” that’s all, nothing more.

Actually, even Saiva Siddhanta is very clear, when I’m reading more and more Agamas, it is so clear: Shaiva Agamas are Advaitha Agamas! It is the stupid fellows, few pundits, who are actually not even pundits, bandits! It is these stupid fellows, they missed and they go on trying to fight; see just they want something different. See, somehow this Saiva Siddhantis and Advaithis have a big incompletion, because all these Shankara Sampradaya are trying to put down the Siddhantis. Siddhantis always try to put down the Smartas. This community problem you should solve it in the community level, you can’t bring that and force it on the philosophy and destroy the truth of the philosophy! These stupid fellows wanted to claim something different from Advaita because they feel if they accept Advaita they become subordinate of Smartas. Arrey, if there is a community issue, solve it! Don’t bring that and impose it on the spiritual philosophy, just because you need to tell something new, different, these fellows are saying that Siddhanta is duality, God is separate and you are separate.

Is there anything called “incompletion”? If it is not there, why are we perceiving it ?

It is like extracting the gold out of mud. See, the gold ore, they collect the gold ore, process it, boil it, acid-wash it; finally the gold comes out. Did the gold come from somewhere out of nowhere? No! It came only from itself. But was the gold there in the beginning? No! It came only from itself. Exactly like the gold from the gold ore, an enlightened being out of you, it is there inside you! Only if it is there it can come out. Otherwise it can’t come out.

Whatever needs to be added in you for you to become an enlightened being is “Completion”. Whatever needs to be removed from you is the idea you have incompletion.

There is no incompletion itself. If something is there, it will continue to be there. Listen! If something is there, it will continue to be there. From the gold ore, if all the dirt can be removed, and gold finally remains, how can you say there was a time this dirt was part of the gold? Anything which can be removed, how can you say it was part of it? You were insensitive to see both of them separate in the beginning. Now they have become separated to the level you are able to sense, that’s all! Listen! If the dirt is inside the gold, can it be separated? No! Because it was never inside, it can be separated. If the incompletions are part of your programming, it can never be separated. Because it is already out of you, it can be taken out. Understand, now they are out of you, but not to the level you can sense it. Once they are out of you to the level you can sense it, you declare:

Soul mates, Liberation, Completion

IA Participant:  So, if you have, like somebody has a lot of incompletions, they don’t finish with the person, and you were saying you have a choice about which body you want to go to, we hear about people who have incompletions again being born together or nearby, so…. 

Swamiji: Usually, when you have incompletions, you will never be born together or nearby.  I have always seen this husband and wife taking birth in opposite continents!  They don’t even want to meet with each other by mistake!  So, by incompletion you will never be born together or nearby.  Only if you are completely Complete, and deep friendliness you carry, you are born together.  If you listen, in Indian villages you will get some stories – husband died, and within one hour wife also left the body.  Not committed suicide; just fell and died.  Those kind of couples take birth together. 

Participant: And, are those kind of couples, they call like “soul mates”?

Swamiji: Yes, yes, yes.

Participant: The other one I had is, if you are a liberated soul, and you are getting liberation while you are living, I have always heard that seven janmas before you in your family also get liberated…

Swamiji: No, not liberation.  The possibility for liberation is given.  When the seven janmas – left, right, up, down….  Understand, understand this meaning: “Up” means, father, forefather.  “Down” means, brother’s kids.  They themselves may not have kids.  If they have kids, that generation, or the own brother, or own sister, their kids.  That is “Down”.  “Right: means, brothers and their relatives.  “Left: means, sisters and their relatives. 

Participant: So, everybody when they come to… 

Swamiji: when they leave the body they are given the option, possibility.  You are connected to this energy.  See, what I am saying, for example, I will give you my own example.  All my up, down, right, left, they remember me whether they accept me as an incarnation or not, but for all of them I am one of the important components in their life, in their memory, and, when they leave the body, naturally my memory will be awakened.  At that time, it will be told to them, ‘You are associated with this being.  Do you want to just merge with this being, or do you want to take one more body?’  If they accept means, they merge.  If they do not accept, throughout their life they lived against me, then they take one more body. 

Participant: And, then, I have also heard that there are seven lokas….you have Yakshas and all that…. 

Swamiji: No, no, no, not seven lokas; seven space, seven space where your patterns are stored.  Based on the pattern you have, you will go and enjoy there.  If you are a cricket player, you will get locked in a cricket stadium.  If you are very happy with the snakes and scorpions, you are put there;  that is all.     

Participant: Now, in the transition zone, you were mentioning, like thirteen days, and then your baggage goes over.  There was some movie that we saw which was recorded by somebody’s experiences where they were, you know, telling the past; souls who departed were giving the experiences, and they were talking about the transition zone.  But, how you can actually have a choice when you stay there, and you can work out your Karmas or work out more on your Completions, and then you still have a choice if you want to go back or go forward.

Swamiji: That is not true.  That choice is given only if you lived a very beautiful Completion while you are in the body, initiated by an enlightened being, not otherwise.

Participant: Thank you, Swamiji.

Can we do organ donation after death ?

Organ donations, no way affect your further journey, your process in the next birth or enlightenment, it no way affects. Only if you are an enlightened while living, your body need to be retained, maintained so that the energy it radiates so many thousands people use. If you are enlightened being while you are in the body, after you leave the body better to keep it as without touching, without damaging as much as possible. Keep it as it is and make a Samadhi.  It will radiate the energy for thousands of years to come and help. Other than enlightened beings body can be immediately given it away in any way you want.

See, when clinically they declare dead, you are dead. It takes one and half hours more for you to actually die. That one and half hours an enlightened being can pull them back. In that one and half-hour time, after clinically declared dead, one and half-hours’ time I can pull them back, if they also want to come back. If that person says he doesn’t want to then I cannot do anything. I can but usually we don’t. Anyhow, once somebody is declared dead at least one and half hours you should not disturb the body. Clinically declared dead, at least one and half hours, because there is always a possibility for that person itself can decide and come back. So, any organ removal after one and half hours only right as per the spiritual law. But as per the medical law I think they have to remove immediately and they are removing. I will support any organ removal and donation after one & half hours.
