First few things, which I wanted to share today. This was one of the important subject, I am introducing into Inner Awakening. Maybe I can say, from the different angle. The truth itself, is not new. The way I am presenting is completely new. Discovering the principle, discovering the principle, on which all the Universes function, all the dimensions and planes, 11 dimensions, 14 plane. Actually, 3 dimension fall in…sorry 3 planes fall in 1 dimension itself. 1 plane does not fall into any of the dimensions. 14 planes, 11 dimensions. All of them function, on 1 principle. Read More
Our meditation program, Inner Awakening journeys you through your own life, simultaneously revealing the secrets of death. It makes your inner space pure and clean by unloading the baggage of emotions that you usually carry with you. It teaches you to live blissfully and leave peacefully. It puts death in the right perspective so that your life becomes more joyful and meaningful.
Inner Awakening has a complete healing effect at the physical, mental and spiritual levels. People come and ask me how I heal through meditation. Please understand, I do not heal through my physical body. It is my presence that heals. When the sun rises, the lotus blooms by itself. The sun does not go and open the petals of the lotus. Similarly, in the presence of the master, healing happens. Be very clear that healing is not done. It happens.
I can heal your body since it is in my presence. In the same way, if you open your mind too, it can be healed. In Inner Awakening, that’s what we do – opening of minds. You are asked to write down about yourself, about your pains, desires, guilt and pleasures. You will not be showing these to anyone else. It is for you to know clearly what your deeply embedded samskaras or engraved memories are.
People ask me why I have them write down all this since they are neither expected to show them to me nor to each other. Understand, by writing it all down you are opening your mind in my presence. You are opening your mind and hence I can heal your mind. If you open your wounds the sun can heal them. Similarly, if you can open your mind the energy will heal all the wounds.
Inner Awakening is opening up your energy layers one by one. Your pains, pleasures, guilt and desires are opened up. Once these open up and get healed, you experience a glimpse of god within you.

After my enlightenment, I came back to South India. I was in Bangalore in a devotee’s house, healing people who sought me out. At that time, a devotee was admitted in the ICU and I was requested to heal him. There again, while healing, the person in the bed next to the devotee started dying! The moment I saw that the person was about to die, the first thing I felt like doing was to move away from the suffering that was about to come! But the devotee was afraid and not ready to leave me!
Suddenly I saw that this person who was dying, was not going through any suffering like the earlier person. I was shocked, and I became very curious. Earlier, the movement of the individual soul from layer to layer was great suffering and torture for it. But this soul was moving so smoothly from layer to layer just like how a knife moves through butter, or how a snowball rolls down!
In the first layer or physical body, there was a little pain. Then suddenly the pain disappeared and the individual soul moved to the pranic layer. It moved from layer to layer like a royal guest! It was so empowered, that the desires, guilt and pain were not able to attack it at all. Even in the causal layer, it did not fall asleep. It was so energetic, and it finally entered the nirvanic layer, relaxed and just disappeared! Read More
We have seven energy layers in our body.
The first layer is the physical body layer that you carry, made out of flesh and blood.
The second layer is made up of the prana movement inside your body. Prana is actually the life energy that you take in when you breathe. Air is the medium that brings in prana for sustaining your life. There are five stages in the movement of prana in your body that constitute what is called pranic* body or breath body layer.
The next layer is the mental body layer. The continuous words or thoughts that rise in you are called inner chatter. The inner chattering that is continuously going on inside of you is the mental body layer.
The fourth layer is the emotion layer. I can say that intense inner chatter that does not respond to your logical analysis is what we call ‘emotions’.
The silence you experience during deep sleep is the fifth layer. It is called the causal body layer.
In deep meditation, the joy and the intense vibrant silence from the thoughtless awareness that you experience is the sixth layer.
The seventh layer is enlightenment.
We store different samskaras in each of the seven different layers.
Chronic fatigue is deeply related to the intense craving for rest. Please understand that this intense craving for rest brings diseases that will make you bedridden.
Actually if you see any advertisement for resorts, especially beach resorts, it will show a beautiful beach, an easy resting chair and a picture of somebody resting and looking so relaxed. The moment you see that, immediately something starts happening in you. You feel that you too should also be lying like that, completely resting, totally in peacefulness, in deep peace. That is what I call intense craving for tamas.
Understand, if you really find that same beach, that same chair and lie down, you will not have that same peace that you visualized. Till you exhaust the tamas engrams, the lethargy engrams, that you carry in the physical layer you cannot rest. Your desire for rest will not let you rest because the desire is from engrams, from samskaras.
Try to find the same beach, same chair, same bench, same place and lie down. The moment you start resting, in a few minutes this samskara will settle down and the next layer samskara will come up. Even your decision to rest, if based on a samskara, you cannot rest.
The samskaras related to chronic fatigue or tiredness are stored in the physical body. That is why when you try to do some exercise, a workout, or even simple walking, the first thing the body will bring out is tiredness. But without bothering about these first level samskaras that are rising, if you continue to enter into the action, suddenly you will see that the same action brings energy out of you. If you start walking, in a few minutes your mind will suggest ten times, ‘I am tired. No…It is too much! We did enough! That is enough for today. Tomorrow we can do.’ But if you don’t bother about these samskaras and just go ahead, within a few minutes the same action will bring energy.
Chronic fatigue, which is a deep feeling to be in inaction, to be in rest or non-moving state, is stored in the physical body layer.
I can say that when the deep desire for vacation or the deep desire for rest, the chronic fatigue, leaves your system, ninty per cent of your spiritual journey is over. This first layer samskara is the worst problem.
The next layer is the prana or breath layer. The samskaras related to desire are stored in the prana, the breathing. That is why, whenever your desires are changing, suddenly you will see the breathing pattern will also change. For example, if you are caught by strong desire like lust or anger, your breathing pattern will change. It will be chaotic. The more you enter into action based on those desires the stronger these engrams will become.
The third layer is the mental layer. In the pranic layer, which is the second layer, you store your thoughts about how your life should be. In the mental layer, you store your engrams about how your life shouldn’t have been. This layer is built on guilt.
If your energy is flowing continuously towards the future, it is desire. If your energy is flowing continuously towards the past, it is guilt.
In the case of this layer, you don’t need to do the same action again to strengthen the engram. Just the information or remembrance about that action will strengthen the engram. For example, if you have seen the same place, or if you are seeing the same person, if you are facing the same situation, immediately those engrams will become strong and they will be awakened.
The fourth layer is to do with emotions. In this layer, you store all the visualizations related to pain.
Understand, this fourth layer of pain is a very powerful layer. You don’t need any action or information to strengthen the engrams. Neither do you need action nor do you need information related to pain.
So you don’t have to have the same pain again and again. You don’t even need to receive information related to that pain. Just the engrams are enough. They can multiply. They can simply expand and multiply.
The fifth layer is what you experience in deep sleep. Even though there are engrams in this layer, you cannot do anything about them, because in the deep sleep, your mind cannot do anything. It is an unconscious layer.
If in the first four layers you can reduce the depth of the engrams, samskaras, the fifth layer and the sixth layer will be cleansed naturally. The fifth layer will be cleansed if you clean the first four layers. If the fifth layer is cleansed, you will start experiencing the sixth layer more and more. The sixth layer is the meditation layer.
If you are getting into the deep sleep layer more easily, it means the first four layers are clean. If the first four layers are not clean, then you will suffer more in the fifth layer. That is why, when you have more stress and load, a lot of suffering related to sleep starts happening in life.
Not only that, if the engrams in the first four layers are too many, in the fifth layer, the relationship between you and your body gets disconnected. Reducing the engrams in the first four layers is making friends with your body.
We don’t realize how we abuse the body. Understand, if you are overweight, it is directly connected to some of these engrams. When you feel lonely and empty inside, you start filling it. You start filling it with food or by drinking. Usually women choose food. Men decide to drink. Of course, in the modern developed society, you can’t generalize! When you are feeling empty and lonely, you have to fill yourself with something.
Every single thing happening in your life is directly connected to some engrams. Removing these engrams, I can say, is making friends with your body, creating a deep friendship with your body. This is the best way to heal yourself.

Actually, Upanishads set the context. Agamas are applied science. Upanishads are like pure science. Agamas are the applied science. Upanishads. Its like a Upanishads define the greatness of Varanasi. Agamas are like GPS to enter into Varanasi and enjoy Varanasi. It is like Upanishads explain the glory through the great principle.
Agamas give you the exact science. Upanishads explain you the glory. Agamas give you the exact science.
I will start with the Shanti Mantra of Kena Upanishad. Please understand, the beauty of Vedic education system. Always education starts with peace, ends with peace because education is the most powerful weapon, either can be used for peace or violence. Understand, education is the most powerful weapon, either can be used for peace or for violence. Vedic tradition insists you becoming rich through education should always be for the peace of the Universe. It should increase the frequency of the peace of the Universe not increase the frequency of the violence in the Universe. I tell you, future wars will not have winners. Future wars will not have winners because we have used education, knowledge to the extreme of violence. We have accumulated enough weapon to demolish not just all the buildings but destroy the very Planet Earth itself for more than 800 times, understand. 800 times we can blow the Planet Earth, so much of weapons are accumulated. Nowaday countries don’t talk about chemical weapons where human beings will be eradicated, just blowing up the planet earth. That’s the latest trend. Understand, the knowledge, education is used for violence nothing will be left out.
Vedic tradition is very clear. The thought current called knowledge should always start with peace and end with peace.
All Upanishads, all the 108 Upanishads has only one similarity. Please understand, all 108 Upanishads does not teach one God, does not teach one philosophy. Sometimes not only they contradict themselves, they are completely opposite to each other. All the 108 Upanishads have only one thing in common; they declare themselves – start with the peace and end with the peace. Other than this, nothing else is in common among all the 108 Upanishads.

Today, the Kundalini thought current, I want to share with all of you, listen, listen intensely and actively. When you come to the space of listening, whatever I am speaking will become directly reality into your system. See, every week, I am giving you, a new, new Kundalini thought current, thought current which will lead you into the conscious space. If you are in the space of listening, just it will become part of you and it will go on and on inside you; it will simply manifest as reality in you.
Today’s thought current; I’ll just connect and tell you clearly.
First thought current I gave you is: You are your Intention, nothing else, neither physiological, nor psychological or neurological experiences, or you. You are beyond all of that.
Now listen to this thought current: Everything your life is made of is your very expression. Listen, everything your life is made of is your very expression. Experientially, playing with them, changing them, altering them, manipulating them, is powers, Siddhis. Understanding, no need to play with any of this, you are beyond and going beyond, is Enlightenment.
Listen now. Listen now. Now what I said is pure science. Mahadeva gives a very powerful, practical methodology to experientially realize this statement. The statement, which I uttered, now is a Sutra, pure science.
Whatever you see in your life, including the walls of this hall and me sitting in front of you, this throne, your chair, the people sitting around you, everything is made of a material, which is from inside you. You can alter, manipulate, extend, reduce, change, everything as you want. Please understand, everything you see in your life, is made out of a stuff, which comes from your very Self. The wax, the material in which your waking state is made and your dream state is made, that material is from you, inside you; just like cobweb. It’s from you, the material is manifested.
Listen, listen, how this can become our realization, how this can become our realization? This thought current, now which I said is pure science. Now, Mahadeva comes next to applied science – how to make that into reality for you and how to use that in your day-to-day life. It’s a very beautiful revelation. Read More
The essence of Kenopanishad is—asking, seeking the source of the Whole.
Understand, seeking the source of you is essence of Isavasya Upanishad.
Seeking the Source of the Whole is the essence of Kenopanishad.
Seeking what happens after death is the source of, that’s the essence of Kathopanishad.
Each Upanishad, please understand, carefully you have to listen now. Each Upanishad gives a thought current, not answers, no.
If you read Isavasya Upanishad you’re not going to have the answer for “Who am I?”
If you read Kenopanishad, you are not going to have the answer for “What is the source of all this?” No.
If you read Kathopanishad, you’re not going to have the answer for “What happens after death?” No.
But if you contemplate, if you do manana, if you entertain, engage with the thought current this Upanishad opens up in you, suggests in you, you will have answers. You will have experience, you will have experiential solutions.
If you entertain the thought current of Isavasya Upanishad, you will simply have solution for the problem of —“Who am I?”
The identity crisis will just dissolve the pratyagātma caitanya jāgratam – the individual consciousness awakening, will simply happen in your system. And, listen carefully…Upanishads are penned down in such a way, if you start entertaining them, start cherishing them, celebrating them, they open up experiences in you, but you can never make a shop out of them. Means, you can’t sell the ideas from Upanishads; because in no Upanishad, no conclusion will be given to you as dos and don’ts. Do this, don’t do that, no. Vidhi niśedha cannot be given.
I am fortunate I am born in a tradition where you can’t make a franchise. You can’t make a franchisee, the franchisee religions. The Vedic tradition is so pure, it can only give thought currents. You enjoy, celebrate the thought currents, you will find solutions for your life. Read More
The human body is naturally designed for vegetarian food. The inner mechanisms like feeling, thinking, words, everything is designed to function with vegetarian food. It is like having a generator which can handle only 220 Volt current, or a UPS which can handle only 220 Volt current, but it is given 20,000 Volts current. What will happen? It will get fused. Same way, if the system is designed by the nature for vegetarian food and non-vegetarian food is constantly dumped into it due to ignorance, the results will need to be faced. Many people present unwarranted arguments like, “No, in the ancient times, human-beings were non-vegetarians.” No, they were fruit-eaters. They were vegetarians, leaf eaters, fruit eaters. Only when they started killing animals to save themselves, to protect themselves, they started thinking that disposing of the dead animals is a very difficult job; eating them might be a better way of disposal. That is the way first human beings started making their stomach a graveyard for animals. Originally, humans were not designed for meat eating. Basically, the human body is designed for vegetarianism.
The food without anxiety, fear, depression bio-memories, if they are consumed by a person, the energy with which they think, the energy with which they utter words, the energy with which they act, the energy with which they feel, everything will be aligned to the natural source of energy; it will be aligned to nature which is the inner potential energy. Unfortunately, the food with fear, depression, anxiety bio-memory, because of its popularity and availability became a mainstream lifestyle. This was one of the greatest calamities that happened to humanity. In Sanskrit we have three words: Jaati Dosha, Nimitta Dosha and Aashreya Dosha. They mean: food getting impure “by its nature”, “by its muscle memory”, and “by the persons handling it”.
Jaati Dosha – By its nature: if it is obtained by stealing or killing, or depriving somebody, it is impure food because if it is stolen food, even while you eat, you will have the anxiety to quickly grab it, finish it off before it gets snatched away. By its nature if it is stolen, robbed, after killing, it is impure. In the first level itself, non vegetarian food is impure because the flesh of an animal is stolen after killing it.
Nimitta Dosha – By its muscle memory: the way the food comes to someone. When it comes to someone, the non-vegetarian food comes with so much of anger, fear, depression bio-memories filled in it. It can never be anywhere near to pure food.
Aashreya Dosha – By the people who handle it, touch it: Non vegetarian food is touched by people who kill the animal! Anything which is touched by a murderer is going to carry that energy in it. So, the person adds a little more poison as his contribution This explains the amount of impurity the non vegetarian food carries. Vegetarian food, on the contrary, is a natural part of the whole bio-energy. With the vegetarian diet, the thinking becomes more subtle and settled. The agitation, aggression disappears.
“I have seen in my life, in my travels all over the world – meeting different cultures, civilization, people and I can tell you from my experience, people who live as vegetarians, their bio-energy is very high, their bio-memory is very high. I can give you various deeper understandings about it. Constantly, the emotions that are cherished become the source of bio-energy. Whatever is the source of someone’s bio-energy impacts their thinking. It is like a vicious circle. Just the right food, the pure food, which is pure by its nature, by right persons handling it, and right way it is brought to you, this pure food alone is enough to kindle, awaken the natural energy you are carrying, what I call ‘Kundalini Shakti’ or ‘inner potential energy’ or your ‘bio-energy.’” – Paramahamsa Nithyananda
All human beings who are seeking the spiritual life should live a vegetarian lifestyle. If one understands this truth – ‘You become what you eat, what you eat becomes you’ – one can see very clearly how the non vegetarian food adversely impacts the bio-memory and muscle-memory, and how vegetarian food comes to you with higher intelligence like producing energy directly from ether, air and space, and going to become part of you.” Non vegetarian food destroys all possibilities of manifesting powers and awakening the Third Eye. All powers manifest from Oneness with Sadashiva. Non vegetarianism is completely opposite to the principle of Oneness. When operating from Oneness with the Whole, one cannot even think of killing another being for a snack! The depressed bio-memory of the killed animals, when ingested, does not allow the body and mind to settle with higher experiences and elevated states of consciousness. It continues to keep the body and mind in binding, depressing thought currents. Vegetarianism is the biggest pre-requisite for manifesting the powers of Sadashiva. It not only supports Third Eye Awakening , but also tunes the body and mind to receive and retain the highest experiences and initiations when showered by The Avatar™. Vegetarianism is the lifestyle of enlightenment.

Bigata Vajra is the ability to spontaneously return to health under any conditions, referred to in the Linga Purana as a quality of Shiva Himself. This quality was demonstrated in December 2015, when Paramahamsa Nithyananda defied medical science with a spontaneous recovery from the dreaded dengue.
In December 2015, while in Phuket, Thailand for conducting the Inner Awakening® Shivoham program, Paramahamsa Nithyananda developed high fever and body ache. Immediately after informing his physician, He dissociated from the pain and fever, and for the next 15 days continued with the Shivoham process without any rest, and without any sign or symptom of the condition. Meanwhile, the blood test for dengue was performed in Phuket, and also later repeated in Bengaluru about a month later. The test report showed very high level (>4 times) the normal of IgG antibodies, which suggested a recent severe dengue infection. However, the first blood counts in Phuket were low, but became completely normal by the second blood test in Bengaluru (within a gap of about 3 weeks). This demonstrates not only a very strong immune system, but also the ability to dissociate from fever and pain to perform the normal vigorous duties of the day, and also the spontaneous healing of the disease without any medical intervention.

The ultimate state of Enlightenment is the no-mind state, or to put it more accurately, the state in which the observer is dissociated from his emotions and thoughts, leading to a significant drop in the number of thoughts created. For the seeker, the sincere practice of Unclutching® or the conscious dissociation from thoughts, leads to a state of purnatva or completion, by virtue of freeing him from the influence of the endless stream of thoughts and mental patterns that continuously spur one to action and trap one in the insidious web of karma.
Through a structured program called Inner Awakening® lasting 21 days, Paramahamsa Nithyananda guides participants to the space of completion through yoga, practical teachings, deep cleansing processes, and a battery of 21 powerful energy initiations (energy darshans). This gives participants an unforgettable glimpse of Enlightenment, and further practice establishes them in the state of perpetual Completion or Living Enlightenment.

I will enter into Isavasya Upanishad, thirteenth (13th) verse. Please chant along with me.
anyad-evāhuḥ sambhavād anyad-āhur-asambhavāt |
iti śuśruma dhīrāṇāṁ ye nastad vicacakṣire || 13 ||
It is said that from the worship of the imperishable Consciousness, the cause of manifestation [sambhavāt] certainly a different result is attained. And it is said that from the worship of the manifested, perishable entities [asambhavāt] such as gods, spirits, ancestors, a very different result is attained—thus we have heard the revelation from those wise beings who explained that absolute principle to us.
What should be your goal? What needs to be worshipped? What should be the ultimate cherished object of you? — that question is being analyzed and answered here. Listen. What should be the cherished goal?
Please understand, whatever you cherish as goal is only worshipped by you. Worship does not mean the few minutes you bow down or the aarti (offering light to divine) you show or the food you offer. Worship means what you constantly remember as highest possibility for you; what you constantly remember as completion of you; what you constantly remember as possibility of you. If you think money will bring fulfillment to you, money fulfills you, naturally money is only worshiped by you. Even if you worship any God in any form you are worshiping for the sake of money. So money is only worshipped in this form. If you are worshiping Lakshmi for the sake of money, you are actually worshipping only money not Lakshmi. Lakshmi is only, as long as she is the embodiment of money. Suddenly if Lakshmi decides – “I am not going to disperse money to people who call upon me”, you will stop worshiping!
So understand, if you are worshiping Saraswati just for knowledge, you are only worshiping knowledge. Whatever you think as the fruit of your life, whatever you think is needed for your completion whatever you think is needed for your fulfillment, what you think as the better half of you, the other part of you… Listen. In one of His teachings, Ramana Maharishi says very clearly – it is very difficult to feel the spirituality, the social conscious awakening is what is required for you to feel fulfillment, because most of us never become sensitive enough to perceive the ultimate truth as it is. Understand our perception always gets stuck. Read More
