Only an enlightened person who is a king, or a king who is an enlightened person, can know the totality of spirituality.

You need to understand that Kṛṣṇa is just thirty-two years old when He makes this statement! Physically His body is only thirty-two years old. But He says, ‘I gave this imperishable knowledge to Sūrya, the Sun god – imaṁ vivasvate yogaṁ proktavān aham avyayam (4.1).’ Of course, this is very difficult to understand! With logic, you cannot understand this statement. With ordinary logic, which you use in your daily life, you cannot make any meaning out of this statement. In the next statement He says: ‘The supreme science, this yoga as it was, appears to have been lost in course of time.’ Continue reading →

Completion in the present moment is the key to unlocking the mooladhara chakra and dissolving lust. It is only completion that brings you in touch with reality as it is and dissolves your fantasies.

Arjuna then asks Kṛṣṇa why even a centered person is led to commit sinful acts, as if forced by unknown powers.

Arjuna’s question is the eternal dilemma of expression or suppression. For example, if you see a beautiful woman and you feel attracted to her, you feel this is not right according to what society has taught you and you try to suppress your feelings. Can this inauthenticity work? If you try to suppress something, it will surface with more intensity. We are always conditioned to believe that anyone with passion or lust is a lower human. There is no lower or higher person. Only a transformation of energy needs to happen. People who pretend to be moralists are either afraid or guilty of their lust. They are completely inauthentic. The moment you think you are a lower human, you start fighting that feeling. Then it becomes very difficult to get out of it and to transform. Anything you resist persists. What you need is to bring completion and allow the transformation, the ultimate reality to happen.

The ultimate completion for a woman is when she expresses the motherliness in her. The ultimate completion for the man is when he comes back to the innocence of the child. Continue reading →

The purpose of all great spiritual practices is for you to become ONE; for you to be complete, integrated!

Kṛṣṇa is giving you the science of creating the right inner space. Let us see how we work, or how our mind moves. In a graph of your being, material life is the horizontal line and spiritual life is the vertical line. You continuously worry about whether to choose the horizontal line or the vertical line; whether to go on this (horizontal) path, or that (vertical) path. You are always stuck somewhere on the horizontal line or somewhere on the vertical line. You try to move but you are always caught in the dilemma of whether to go this way or that way.

Mind is nothing but dilemma. Whatever you choose, whether material life or spiritual life, you will always feel you are missing the other part. You will continuously feel you are missing something. As long as you think you are the mind, as long as you live with the mind, you will have this problem of material life verses spiritual life. Just like people have goals in material life, they have goals in spiritual life too. There are so many people who say, ‘I should meditate for seven hours daily. I should become enlightened. I should become that, I should do this.’

A man who has fallen into his being, one who has dropped goals, who has tasted the beauty of purposelessness of Existence, who has realized the space of completion, who has fallen into his being, explodes in 360 degrees, in all dimensions. He simply radiates completion in all directions! Continue reading →

Fear of public speaking is nothing but fear of talking to yourself

Questionnaire: ‘Dear Swamiji, as you say, facing fear is the only way to go beyond any fear. Kindly correlate practicing the four tatvas and living without fear of any sort from now on; for example, fear of public speaking, going up to the fear of death.’

Swamiji: You think public speaking is such a small fear? You are wrong! Fear of public speaking is nothing but fear of losing your image, which is much worse than fear death. At least, after death you know, I don’t need to face this fellow. Nobody is going to back come and ask you, ‘Why did you die in such a bad way? You could have died a little more gracefully!’ No, nobody is going to ask you. But everybody is going to ask you, ‘Why did you blabber your mouth so much? Why did you open your mouth and lose the little respect you had?’ Everybody is going to ask you! So Fear of public speaking is much more than fear of death. Getting it? Statistics are right when they say fear of public speaking is the largest fear than fear of death! Fear of death comes only as second in the survey reports.

Understand, listen, listen, when you face certain fear….. I’ll give you one example.

For example fear of losing all your wealth.

When you face that fear you don’t need to start believing you will lose one day, but you will face it. Listen. Usually what you do know in the name of facing the fear?

‘Alright, now I lost it! What can be done? Let me face.’ Then what happens? O

ne part of you confirms you are going to lose the all the wealth and then it will say, ‘No, no! How can you live? How can you live? What is this? Why are you thinking all this?’

Listen, how many of you understand what I am saying?

So now you are caught between whether you are going to accept you are going to lose the wealth one day, or just to hide, hide, hide and suppress,

‘No, I am not going to lose! I am not going to lose! I am not going to lose!’ If you say you are not going to lose, your heart is not going to believe.

If you say, ‘Yes I am going to lose now what to do?’ Again, ‘See, you are powerless now what to do? What is the way to save yourself?’ Your mind somehow keeps seeing the rut.

Listen you don’t need to believe you are going to lose the wealth, and you don’t need to have the fear what will you do if you lose the wealth? Understand? Continue reading →
