How do I become your disciple?

Actually, if you are unclutched, you can get into my circle. Being unclutched directly connects you to me. A tremendous energy starts flowing through you. What do I mean by unclutched? Being relaxed without clinging on to any person or thought or thing. Continue reading “How do I become your disciple?”

Is the statement, ‘When the student is ready, master appears’ right?

Yes, the statement is right. When the student is ready, master appears. Sometimes, even when the student is not ready, out of compassion, master appears. He gives the possibility. Even people who are not ready can take the quantum jump. So I extend my hand for the possibility. Continue reading “Is the statement, ‘When the student is ready, master appears’ right?”

Swamiji, I would like to know the purpose of our life, the world, the universe and our god.

If you know the purpose of your life, you will be able to understand the other three automatically.
The purpose of your life is the purpose of the universe. The purpose of the universe is the purpose of god. It means the purpose of your life is the purpose of god. Be very clear, find out the purpose of your life and you will be able to find out the purpose of god. But unfortunately, I cannot tell you the purpose of your life. Continue reading “Swamiji, I would like to know the purpose of our life, the world, the universe and our god.”

How does trust develop between a disciple and a master? Is the disciple justified in demanding some proof or does the master expect unconditional surrender?

First thing, neither can the disciple have unconditional surrender nor can he stop asking for proof. Disciple means he will be demanding solid proof from the master to prove he is authentic. Second thing, he will not have all the qualifications to be a real disciple. That is a disciple. He will not be a perfect disciple but he will ask the qualities from a master to be the perfect master. That is the quality of the disciple. Don’t worry about it. Continue reading “How does trust develop between a disciple and a master? Is the disciple justified in demanding some proof or does the master expect unconditional surrender?”

Does the master choose the disciple or does the disciple choose the master?

Does the master choose the disciple or does the disciple choose the master?

First thing, it is actually the disciple who chooses the master. Because master never chooses. The master just showers. He is like the sacred river Ganga. He just flows. If you want, you will enter the river, immerse yourself, drink or play – whatever you want you do. But Ganga itself just flows. It does not choose. So it is with the master. The master is a choiceless energy, choiceless bliss. Continue reading “Does the master choose the disciple or does the disciple choose the master?”

Staying in the presence of an enlightened being will straightaway change the hardware for it to hold on to the transformation and the software and the entire process.

There is an interesting research done by the Institute of HeartMath, USA:

In this experiment, the characteristics of light-photons were studied in a light scattering chamber. The graph looked like a typical plot representing random motion of the photons. Next, a DNA sample was placed in the scattering chamber. The graph now changed showing an interaction between the DNA and the photons of light. Continue reading “Staying in the presence of an enlightened being will straightaway change the hardware for it to hold on to the transformation and the software and the entire process.”

What is Darshan ? What does it have to do with Spirituality or Enlightenment or Master-Disciple relationship ?

The unconscious zone in the mind is like the software that can be cleansed by meditation. The hardware, the brain itself, will be tuned to hold this new software by the darshan or grace of the master.
When you clean the conscious and unconscious with meditation and create a change in yourself, the hardware may not be able to hold and sustain that effect from day one. If the master’s darshan or blessing happens, the hardware also changes to hold that effect. If you don’t get that blessing, constant meditation and teaching will eventually help change the hardware.

If a disciple is in love with the master for no reason at all, the master can straightaway change the hardware along with the software Continue reading “What is Darshan ? What does it have to do with Spirituality or Enlightenment or Master-Disciple relationship ?”

When people ask me whether I am god, I tell them it depends on you!

This is an incident from the days of my spiritual journey.

One morning, a master was talking to all of his disciples in the angle of feeling connected to the whole of the Himalayas. The master was loving and caring enough to allow me also into their morning session. He was asking the disciples one by one, ‘Did you practice this technique?’ It seems a few days earlier he had initiated them into the technique of feeling connected to the Himalayas. They were supposed to constantly internalize that the Himalayan mountains was a part of their body. Continue reading “When people ask me whether I am god, I tell them it depends on you!”

When you realize Master’s ferociousness is not a hit, but a blessing out of sheer compassion for you to grow, you will realize the beauty of it and welcome it even more

The stronger you hold on to an ideology or to a person, the deeper will be your depression. If you hold on to a person, say your boyfriend or girlfriend or husband or wife, your son or brother or father, you will be bound by the sway of the relationship, and you will invariably fall into depression and start blaming that person. This is how depression happens. In the same way, if you hang on to your ego or identity or ideology, again you will face depression.

When you surrender both doubt and faith at the feet of the master, you will see something called trust happens in you, which is neither doubt nor faith!

Whenever you have a doubt, surrender the doubt and faith both at the feet of the master. You see, the master is the one who gives you the faith and he is the same person who gives you the doubt. When you are stuck with doubt, tell the master mentally, ‘Master, it is you who gave my faith in you, it is also you who gave me doubts about you. I am surrendering both at your feet. I don’t want to play this game. I have suffered enough with this game. Please take care.’
When you surrender both doubt and faith at the feet of the master, you will see something called trust happens in you, which is neither doubt nor faith. It is the courage to experiment with the truth. Continue reading “When you surrender both doubt and faith at the feet of the master, you will see something called trust happens in you, which is neither doubt nor faith!”

Being open to the master so that he can shower his love on you, and you can receive it in all its glory and divinity and grow is true disciple hood!

Upanishad means ‘sitting’. When a disciple sits in the presence of the master the same experience that happened in the master is reproduced in the disciple. The disciple who experiences the master and within whom the master has been reproduced, writes down his recollections on how this process happened. The disciple or the master or someone else writes an account of how the experience was reproduced in the disciple – what happened when the process began, how it ended and what happened when it ended. This report is referred to as an Upanishad.

The master-disciple relationship is the deepest relation possible in Existence, it is the ultimate love affair Continue reading “Being open to the master so that he can shower his love on you, and you can receive it in all its glory and divinity and grow is true disciple hood!”

Swamiji, why do you insist on being in the presence of the master?

The master is the ultimate luxury in your life. When the master happens in our lives, nothing else is needed. If he does not happen, nothing else is of use. He is a channel to bring wisdom to our life and to update it, according to our need.

Life energy and the master are not two different things. Masters again and again emphasize the beautiful concept called experiencing the master inside. Only until you experience the master inside, you think you need the master from the outer world. Once you experience the master inside, you don’t need the master from the outer world. See, when a meditation technique is done with a master, it becomes an alchemy process. If you do it alone in your home it is called meditation. When you do it along with the master, in the presence of the master, guided by the master, it becomes alchemy. It is like boiling you. The process becomes so alive and intense.
