Today I will try to introduce Naciketa, the hero of Kathopanishad. It is so strange, king, educated, knows everything, has people, wealth everything under his control ends up being stupid. And a kid, his own kid, not even finishing his schooling, less than 7 years old kid, supposed to be nobody, neither having money nor having people, nothing under his control, ends up being a hero. Strange are the drama of the Cosmos. So the underlying truth, what our society or country respect may be totally different from what Cosmos expects or what Cosmos respect.
Please listen, Nachiketa, kid, kid means real kid, not portrayed as kid real kid, he became the source of enlightenment for billions to come in the future. Please understand, Kathopanishad is the Hindu Book of Dead and death.
If you have read Tibetan Book of Dead, you will understand, every idea represented in that book is from this book. This is the Source book, anywhere, any research, any understanding, any intuition, any sacred secret, any revelation about death, it is from this source, and many conclusion, humanity is yet to arrive is already revealed in this book. It is THE book. Continue reading “Nachiketa, what a character!”
Today I will expand on Mahadeva’s “Love Current”. First, let me define and make you understand what is “Love Current”, why I am suddenly turning the whole Upanishad towards Love.
Listen! I don’t utter a single word which is not required. I am not speaking because I have to speak; I am speaking because I have something to speak, understand? I am not speaking because I have to speak; I am speaking because I have something to speak.
यस्मिन् सर्वाणि भूतान्यात्मैवाभूद् विजानतः ।
तत्र को मॊहः कः शॊक एकत्वमनुपश्यतः ॥
Yasmin SarvaaNi Bhoothaani Aathmaivaabhoodh Vijaanathaha |
Tathra Ko Mohaha Kah Shoka Ekathvam Anupashyathaha ||
“In one who has cognized the reality, all existing beings become the very Self. Then what delusion, what sorrow of incompletion can there be for that Seer living in the space of Oneness, Living Advaitha?”
Listen! It is love that gives you the experience of Advaitha immediately as a jump-start. It is love that gives you that experience. This verse of the Ishavasya Upanishad is the Pure Science. Love is the Applied Science. Love is the method and utility value of this verse. Listen! “Method” means: To reach this experience. “Utility Value” means: After reaching the experience what is the use of that experience in life. For both, the answer is love. To reach the experience of Ekathwa, Oneness, and utility of the Oneness in your life, the utility of the experience of Oneness in your life, Ekathwa, both, both, both are love.

Please understand, the perception evolving, evolution of the perception is a gift happening to you, which is just happening from Perception to Fact, Fact to Truth, Truth to Reality. And anybody who stops the evolution of perception commits spiritual suicide, “Atma Hathya”, understand? “Atma Hathya”, that is the word I will use. Killing the soul, the possibility! Killing the soul and possibility! I am telling you, not to frighten you, not to correct you, not to control you, not even I am interested in guiding you. And I know nobody listens to me! After talking twelve-thousand hours last fifteen years, I am very clear on my conclusion that nobody listens to me! I am talking for me to listen to me, understand? With this clarity I am declaring this truth. Upanishads just declare their own strength by their own statements. They don’t need any author to authenticate them. Same way, whatever I am talking, the dharma, the truth, I am revealing it for myself! The listener’s listening does not need to authenticate what is being uttered. With this clarity I am uttering these words:
WHATEVER YOU HOLD WITH FEAR OF LOSING IT, EXACTLY THAT WILL ONLY BE TAKEN AWAY FROM YOU!
I am telling you…..
People ask me, ‘What is this, Swamiji! I am such a good person. I never cheated anybody. But my wealth is taken away. But these guys who cheat everyone, their wealth and all is not taken away. They are all living wealthily.’ Continue reading “Whatever you hold with fear of losing it, precisely that will be taken away from you!”
I tell you, if you see a person sitting next to you how you will feel, if you see a dog sitting next to you how you will feel, if you see a plant sitting next to you how you will feel, it is based on that, that, that is going to respond to you. Please understand, if you think the person who is sitting next to you is alive, you will react either with love or withdrawal, whatever; you may react in some way. If you see a dog sitting next to you, you will react in some way. … Continue reading Existence of life doesn’t depend on action but on its Existence itself
Questionnaire: Nithyanandam Swamiji ! I’m going to ask a question after explaining about my doubt, I talked to my group here. This is about the, on the western side you have got the one day marriage, overnight married. They get married … Continue reading What is sacred about marriage?
Questionnaire: ‘Pranaam, Swamiji! From the other day’s comments about Cause and Effect and Shraaddha in the Maheshwara Puja, it seems that completion with the departed souls will also lead to reducing the karmic account between the departed souls and I. Is … Continue reading Cause and Effect and Shraaddha in the Maheshwara Puja
Shiva, lord of all the celebrations and festivals, lord of all the rituals, who receives the first ‘aahuthi’ in all rituals, Mahadeva, the principles Mahadeva represents…. Please understand, if your lifestyle is vegetarian, even one or two days by mistake some non-veg has entered into the body, you can’t be called as ‘non-vegetarian’. The principle for which you stand is vegetarian, then you are vegetarian only. That is just a mishap. Just because one accident happened in your life and you died, you can’t say you never lived! Like that, the principle for which the person stands, if you study, the principles which Mahadeva represents, which Mahadeva is the solidified expression, those are the Hindu fabric, the principles of that Hindu society, in a way, the universal society. ‘Thyaaga’, he is sacrificing for people who don’t even know or recognize his sacrifice is needed for them. When you work for people who don’t even recognize your work for them, that is ‘Thyaaga’. The power he represents, the possibility he represents! HAHAHAHAHAHA!
All the great truths Mahadeva represents, that is the basis of social fabric; even though he himself is portrayed or looks like anti-social, he is not anti-social. Above social! You cannot frame him at all. He is a Paramahamsa, all the time sitting in Samadhi. But you can’t call him a ‘Sannyasi’. He has Matha Parvathi, and one Ganesha, Subrahmanya. In some of the Shaiva traditions, even Kaalabhairava and Veerabhadra were shown as sons! And then there is always people who are there to create controversies – ‘How can you have Ayyappa with Vishnu?’ All types of controversies! People who create controversies are not something new; they exist as old as Mahadeva! You can’t call him (Mahadeva) as ‘Grihastha’ (householder), because he is Thyaagaraja. The beautiful ‘griha’, the golden city Vishwakarma (architect of the Gods) built for Mahadeva, literally he (Vishwakarma) poured himself and made that city. It is like you work so much and you put your best and make a beautiful house, suddenly, the priest who came and did the house-warming ceremony (griha pravesha) for you asks you, ‘Give me this house!’, what will happen? You will kick him out! But, Mahadeva just gave that house, gave that city! That is Lankapuri (Sri Lanka). Continue reading “Thyaagaraja”
IA Participant: It’s about the, if it’s a natural deaths or it’s a accidental deaths, and for devotee or for just a normal person. I heard like for some tradition like 49 days kind of preparation. But you just mentioned it only takes a few hours ? Swamiji: So, listen. Let me be very clear. When a person dies, natural death, he will assume the body in 3 sec. 3 kshana. Kshana means gap between 1 thought and the other thought. If you lived a complete life, for you the gap between one thought and another thought can be even 2 … Continue reading What happens when you suicide ?
Conscious reflection. Please understand, this is the Cosmic Soul, if I keep the mirror here, the reflection is the individual soul. When the mirror is damaged, the reflection stops. There is no such thing as the reflection leaves & comes back. It stops reflecting. And there is some other place, some other mirror with the same quality, the mirror is made and again it starts reflecting. Questioner: So mirror is the body ? Swamiji: And mind. Questioner: so, what leaves the body, does it carry all the memories ?? Swamiji: Llisten.. listen. Cosmic soul stops reflecting. But this mirror cannot … Continue reading Nithyanandam Swamiji, so what leaves the body and assumes the another body is the soul from my understanding..
Please understand, you being not sure about you does not come by ignorance; it comes by arrogant choice. That is the main thing you need to know. There are some powerlessness which come to you by ignorance. For example, not knowing how Rahu is moving in your life. When Rahu and Shani are together, and Guru is not supporting it, you should not start any initiatives. So, if you start without knowing this, powerlessness comes to you by ignorance; that is forgivable….that is forgivable. The solution is, you have to get somebody who knows that science, try to get their advice, guidance. Even if you don’t get, it is forgivable powerlessness. But, there are some things, some powerlessness out of choice, arrogance, not out of ignorance; but you choose to be powerless. That is internally having the knowledge and not living it, applying it. Please listen! If there are some external reasons, cosmological reasons, at least you can accept ignorance. But much of the internal powerlessness is arrogant choice. Not being sure about yourself is arrogant choice.
The choice you take, the dilemma you suffer, the depression you build, the dilemma you suffer, the depression you build is like a wax house, wax bungalow. Don’t ever think the Pandavas are going to die in it! It is the fellow who built it who is going to die in it, not the Pandavas. Not being sure about you is sin, crime, “Atma Hathya” (suicide), destroying yourself. Continue reading “BE SURE ABOUT YOURSELF !”
