Making your identity redundant means living constantly with the clarity – ‘you are your intention to be, all the physiological, psychological, neurological ups and downs are not you’,

Identity completion. Understand! Identity completion, listen to this word.

This is the most prominent, most important, first quality of Shivagana, person filled with Shiva. Shivagana means his length, breadth, depth all filled with Shiva, is a Shivagana.

Most of our problems are all about your identity crisis, not reality. Bring completion to your identity. Your identity survives by constantly creating crisis for you

The first and foremost quality of Shivagana is identity completion; means, make your old identity till this moment, the identity you carry, make it as redundant. Understand! Decide! It is no more useful to you.

Even if you feel, “No, no, no! There are 2-3 things I can use from that. I was a doctor, I studied the whole MBBS, all that memory is there in that baggage. Shall I just pick up that and leave the remaining?” “No, no, no! I was a banker and my whole banking intelligence is there in that baggage. Shall I take that and leave the rest?” “No, no, no! I was a lawyer, it means whole thing is garbage so can I take just that knowledge and leave the rest?” Read More

The Cosmic Oneness is the Meru Danda, when that Cosmic Oneness gets moved, churned, the force generated is Integrity

Today I wanted to expand on Integrity. Listen. First statement I wanted to make.  Integrity is the Meru Danda, spindle, on which the whole Cosmos flows. Listen. The oneness, Advaita is the core of the Meru Danda, when the Meru Danda moves, when it is spindled the force generated is Integrity. 

Listen.

Oneness, the Advaitic Shuddhadvaita Satya that is the core of the spindle. When the spindle is churned, when that spindle starts moving the force generated is Integrity. Read More

The first principle for life beyond limits is knowing the software with which you’re operating has faults and limitations, and Master is a message from Cosmos saying software update available.

The body in which you are residing…   which is the center for your existence or your perception of existence, evolved step by step, like cell, amoeba growing to the level of fish. Amoeba to fish is a pure physical growth, nothing more. From fish to monkey, is physical and mental – both breakthroughs together.

Understand, when fish started feeling just body alone is not enough to celebrate its existence, life is too much, body is too little, it developed a tool called mind. And next, next, next level bodies, the mind developed more and more apps and tools; if I have to talk in the software language… more and more tools and apps started developing. And at the level of monkey, beings have felt just body and mind is not enough, universe is too much to enjoy and celebrate; just body and mind is too little. Then beings have started developing a new component – ability to reflect Consciousness.

Understand, when monkeys started standing with two legs, the speed of the blood flow, not the quantity… the speed of the blood flow to the brain become less. So the brain started developing very subtle grooves through which it can perceive without thinking. Read More

Look at you from the prism of Sadāshiva, instead you look at Sadāshiva from the prism of you!

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

When an enlightened being does spiritual practices it is not just for him. It is to create the right formulas for the disciples, so that he can reproduce the same experience in them

The person who has removed hypocrisy from his inner space will experience enlightenment.

Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, the enlightened master from India, says beautifully, ‘Integrating your inner chatter and your spoken words is enlightenment.’ He says, just integrate your inner chatter and the words that you utter. Let both of them be integrated and you are enlightened.

I tell you, to live in a body in which inner chatter and outer words are connected is heaven. Nothing else can give you more joy than living in a body where the inner chatter and the spoken words are integrated. It is just pure ecstasy! This constant ecstasy is what I call nithyananda or eternal bliss. If you can live inside a body in which the inner chatter and the spoken words are integrated, in tune, suddenly you will see that you are living inside a hollow bamboo. You are living with such a vast inner space! Read More

If you study the lives of great masters and try to search for one basic essence in all of their lives is that they were ready to lose even their very lives, but not their integrity!

The word ‘penance’ means nothing but integrating yourself, making yourself a single entity. You may ask, ‘Are we not like that now?’ If you look closely, you will see that we exist as different entities, never as one. There is everything else in our life, except integration.

If you look deeply inside, you will understand, there are hundreds of voices continuously talking inside you. The moment the mind says, ‘Let us do this,’ the very next moment the thought will arise, ‘No. Let us not do it!’ After thinking of the side effects and after effects, the mind starts oscillating.

Integrating the fragmented parts of the mind is the very essence of life. Integrating the feelings and the mind, integrating your face and your mind, ensuring that your face shows the same thing as what your mind thinks, is the essence of life.

The intense effort to integrate oneself completely is what is called penance. Penance always ends in auspiciousness.

If you study the lives of great masters and try to search for one basic essence in all of their lives, you will find, it is not knowledge or devotion. It is integrity! What they believed in, they lived. That’s all! Their integrity was solid. They were ready to lose even their very lives, but not their integrity. Read More

Maturity is functioning out of immense innocence and giving your whole to the moment!

The Dhammapada says: Light the lamp within; strive hard to attain wisdom. Become pure and innocent, and live in the world of light.

When you came into the world, you came as an innocent infant. You radiated the beauty of your innocence until society gave you the mind. Now, you want to get rid of your mind and become innocent again. The regained innocence is what is called maturity. It is possible to regain it. Just believe that you were innocent once upon a time. Trust that the innocence is still within you. Then it is possible to start radiating it again. This understanding will start the process again.

Let the core of you be at ease all the time, irrespective of where you might be or what you may be doing. Then you can retain your purity.

Maturity causes us to live in totality. Totality is functioning out of immense innocence and giving your whole to the moment. There is no opinion, no judgment, no fragments within you. There is only intense enthusiasm for the moment. The openness to the moment is the innocence. Just one thing is needed to become innocent once again. Don’t hide behind false knowledge. See where all you are hiding and step out to reveal your natural self. Then you are completely open. This is the attitude for enlightenment.

Knowing that you are hiding is the first step. Taking a strong decision to come out of it is the next step. Then you will see that innocence and maturity start happening. Read More

Intelligence recognizes the mystery of the present moment and surrenders to it joyfully out of innocence

There are three ways to ask a question. You can ask out of innocence, or you can ask out of knowledge to show that you too know, and third, you can ask to confirm that what you know is correct. When you ask out of innocence, you are completely ready to receive the answer. When you ask out of knowledge, you completely miss the answer. When you ask for confirmation, you simply resist the answer.

The unknown can never be trapped with the known. The unknown can be known only by surrendering to it.

A small story:

Zen masters generally give personal guidance in a secluded room. No one enters when master and disciple are together.

A Zen master used to enjoy talking with merchants and newspapermen as well as with his pupils everyday. Amongst his regular visitors was an illiterate potter who used to come and ask foolish questions of him. He will then have tea and go away.

One day, while the potter was there, the master wanted to give personal guidance to a disciple, so he requested the potter to remain outside. Read More

If there is implicit openness and innocence the learning can be received from the Avatar who imparts learning every moment

The word upanishad means ‘sitting at the feet of the master’.

In ancient India, there was the gurukul tradition of masters and disciples. Children were left with the master at the age of seven and they grew up centering beautifully in their consciousness. Masters are living embodiments of the scriptural truths. Their thoughts, words and deeds stem from the ultimate Truth. Disciples pick up the truth just by living around them. Swami Sri Yukteshwar Giri , an enlightened master from India says, ‘Sitting with the master is not merely being in his physical presence, but keeping him in your heart, being one with him in principle and tuning yourself to him.’ This is the whole technique of upanishad.

The master is superconscious energy. When you tune to him, you tune to that energy. You can tune only through innocence, openness. Openness is emptiness. Let not knowledge fill you. Knowledge is but a mere tool, not your substance. Reject all knowledge as ‘not this’, ‘not this’. When I say reject, I mean don’t settle for any intermediate knowledge except the ultimate Truth. Because when you drop everything that continuously arises in you, then you have no other go. You are thrown back into yourself and it is there you will find the ultimate Truth. It is then you are ready to be filled with the Truth. Then alone can you make upanishad happen. Read More

How can mere listening lead to enlightenment ?

Just this moment accept yourself in the outer world and the inner world. You will go out enlightened. For so many years, completely accepting what the master said, Satyakama just was. What else can happen to him but enlightenment? You may think, ‘How can simple acceptance do such a big job?’ The problem is that even spiritual knowledge is approached by us with the space of an intellectual mind. It is from that intellectual space that we ask the ‘how’. Intellect always questions. Innocence straightaway starts practicing what the master says. That is the difference.

Shiva says in the Shiva Sutras, ‘Absorb the ultimate truth, senses shut down, and be liberated.

He means that in that utterly innocent and open state, initiation is enlightenment.
