When we become responsible for others, we no longer are focused on us. We move towards serving other people. Serving other people is leadership.Pandering to one’s own needs without a care about others is absence of leadership.

There are so many books these days about leadership and how it is an important part of making an organization successful. There are so many so-called leadership gurus who teach and train people in organizations to ‘develop’ leadership. Yet when we look at all organizations, whether they are doing business to make a profit, or in government service or in the area of social services, true leaders are rare. If you look at any organization you will find that less than 1% tends to become the so-called leaders in the organization. If you look at business organizations, we can say that there are probably only 1% of these organizations that can claim to be true leaders in their fields who are excelling in all areas of their business – making a profit, delivering good products and services, providing service to society, providing satisfaction to their employees, etc. So we can say, true leaders are actually 1% of the 1% of successful business organizations. It means just 0.01% of the overall working population actually has true leadership qualities in them! We can say the same about organizations in other fields. This is what I mean when I say true leaders are rare.

Everyone can become a leader and the quality of leadership arises from one’s ability to take responsibility for a particular organization, a situation or a particular group.

Let us now try and understand why this is the case. Read Full Article

When you have had even one glimpse of pure consciousness, no karma can influence you. Your frequency becomes much more than the frequency of karma. Karma can work on you only as long as you have thoughts. In conscious awareness you go beyond thoughts. So, naturally you will start ruling over karma. Any meditation when done intensely can give you a glimpse of consciousness, the Truth.

That is why they say, meditation is like exposing your film directly to the sun. If the camera shutter opens for one second, whatever is in front of the camera will be recorded on the film. If the shutter is left completely open, what will happen? If the sun’s rays directly fall on the film, what will happen? Whatever is recorded will be erased.

When you took birth, for a moment the camera shutter opened and life entered your body. Whatever was there in the scene outside at that moment was recorded. By the word ‘scene’, I mean the planetary positions at that moment. That is why the time of birth is very important. Based on that, your consciousness functions. However, during meditation, I consciously keep the shutter open for quite some time! So naturally, whatever is recorded will be erased!

So the first time the shutter was opened was when you took birth. The second time the shutter is opened is when you are initiated. This time the shutter is kept completely and naturally open so that the sun’s rays enter and wipe out all your karma. That is why when you are initiated by a master, you are called dvija or twice born. The man who operates your camera, who holds the shutter open for that period of time, is called the guru. He is the master.

Today, all I wanted to convey to all of you is, “celebrating Shaktinipada.” As I gave, this is the message for Sadashivaratri. This whole Sadashivaratri Ritu, till Guru Purnima, I’ll give you the Science of Shaktinipata. As I told you all last week, the neurology of reality and the only solution, to experience Sadāshivatva, in the neurology of the reality is the Shaktinipada. Listen. First I spoke about physiology of reality, then psychology of reality, now neurology of reality. Some of the essential things I wanted to convey about the neurology of the reality is – reality by its real state is Sadāshiva, by its perception state is Maya. The space, which literally makes the Maya shiver and breaks, takes you from the perceptional reality to the real reality. That space is called Gurutattva.

Listen. Listen intensely. Reality as it is, is Sadāshiva because Kaarana (cause) and Kaarya (action) can never be separated. Me and My actions can never be separated. You and your actions can never be separated but you and your reactions can never be together.

You and your actions can never be separated; you and your reactions can never be together. Read Full Article

 Listen. Now I will try to compare with some of the ideas, they try to express in the Matrix. The various bio-memories you can open up, will open up various planes of existence for you. Various bio-memories you can open up, opens up various planes of your existence. When you open up the bio-memory of your dream, you open up the dream plane for your existence, perception, experience. When you open up the dream space, you experience dream as your reality. When you open the dream bio-memory, you experience dream as your reality. When you open waking state bio-memory, you experience waking state as your reality. Poor are those who experienced only lower bio-memory opening and lower levels of existence. In the dream state and waking state, you are too engrossed in the details and opinions, you never look at the Source. That is why it called lower planes, lower planes where details become too much. Details become suffering. I have seen people, who get shaken even for a small injection or even hot water. If it was little more hot and they touch unexpectedly, the way they jump and roll, make the drama and finally tumble the tub and pour the hot water all over, get burnt.

That is what you do. By mistake if you touch the hot water, the way you jump and roll, you tumble the whole bucket and pour it on you. I have seen people doing it. For the sake of small temporary mood swing, they create permanent damages into their system. Small temporary mood swing, permanent damage is done to their Being. Read Full Article

I was explaining about the power of declaration. Today, not only the power of declaration, we are going to make itself is something extraordinary, beautiful.

sarvam brahmopanishadam |

Please understand, first thing Upanishadic Rishis are making a WILL. First thing they are teaching you is, strengthen your limbs, listening, seeing, body, mind, vital life-energy, strengthening all of that, create a will to mature and strengthen your body and mind. 

Next, sarvam brahmopanishadam |

Understand, whatever exists is consciousness including what you don’t like in the life.

People say, “everything is okay”, but who invented this examination and office? When you are a child you think, “everything is okay.” When you think everything is okay, who invented this office; even the things you feel you don’t like, not part of you remember – sarvam brahmopanishadameverything is Consciousness – means you made everything in your life, you made everything in your life. Understand, I am not talking this idea that – you made everything in your life – as a philosophy, moral, no! I am talking, I am uttering these words, as the simple facts you need to know, the truth you need to be informed before you strategize about your future existence. Read Full Article

Swamiji opens up about Yoga and shares the things you have never been told about yoga.

Yoga did not originate from Patanjali, as many people think.

Patanjali is the organizer, not originator. With all my respect to Patanjali, at least 50.000 years before Patanjali, a being walked on the earth assuming the human form, just like all of us, Adi Guru Sadashiva, is the founder of the original yoga system. There is enough detailed description, including yoga postures and breathing methods, written directly by Sadashiva. Knowing the original source and original author is very important for keeping the purity of a tradition or knowledge branch. Knowing the originator, founding father, his intentions, revelations, knowledge about that is too important. Any knowledge branch will be only complete if intentions of author are revealed to the person studying.

Second, which you have never been told, which you need to be aware. Always, as per original source, any practice you are asked to do …, original sources are available. Please understand, people who try to establish themselves as a branch of yoga have messed up yoga. Read Full Article
