When you feel the past is great and the fear of death dissolves, you will not be afraid of changes. A being who is not afraid of changes enjoys the glorious future!

The happening of physical death, the happening of the present dying and becoming past, the happening of new birth, the happening of future being born – all these happen in the same frequency and the cognition with which you operate your life.

Most of the so-called developed countries are large scale prisons where you just concur with the established system. If you think in a very immature and powerless way, with binary logic, about your birth, death, past and future, you will live a superficial life. Anyone who receives powerful cognitions on birth, death, past and future gets an enlightened life. Anyone who experiences the cosmic legal opinion about life, death, past and future, lives a very intense life. Read More

Implicit surrender to Master’s words in letter and spirit brings tremendous completion reducing wastage of your life!

auṃ āpyāyantu mamāṇgāni vākprāṇaścakśuḥ śrotram-athobalam-indriyāṇi ca sarvāṇi |
sarvaṁ brahmopaniṣadam mā’ham brahma nirākuryām mā mā brahma  nirākarod-anirākaraṇamstva-nirākaraṇam me’stu |

oṁ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ ||

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 More

I have seen the Masters who have so visibly, directly, shamelessly declaring the power of Mahadeva!

Somebody has put a comment on Facebook: ‘Why in India they didn’t build hospitals, schools?  How do you call them as evolved civilization?’  In every village, the largest building of the village is the common utility building where we had school, hospital, cinema theater, art gallery, teaching place, and, ultimately, teaching enlightenment.  The place, we call it as “TEMPLE”!  Understand?  We call that as “TEMPLE”.  “ALL”!  It is not just a “Mall”; it is “All”!  Everything about life is done there,  whether storing the grain, teaching principles, or medical-care, everything is done there.  And, moreover, our lifestyle was such, we didn’t need so much of hospitalization.  From the beginning we were taking care of ourselves. And an important thing, very important thing, when time comes, we were gracefully able to leave, say “bye bye”!  Because, we know we will come back!  We were not that poor psychologically or consciously that we were holding on to one body.  See, when you want to hold on to that one body only you need so much of medical-care.  We just know, when we need, we will make the body recover.  When it is time, body is too damaged, come on drop it, pick up another one!

We trust metal more than currency, because, for ages we have been a metal civilization, not currency civilization.  Understand, currency was pushed upon us very recently.  Those days, even currency had a value because of the metal in which the currency is made.  Currency itself independently did not have a value.  The gold with which the coin is made, that gold had a value, not declaration by the king or the administrator that this is this much valuable.  Understand, trusting only Vaishyas for wealth was our civilization.  Now our money is by Kshatriyas, politicians, administrators.  Please understand, that is why I am saying, your money is not money!  Because, the person who is going to transact, that community what they value only can be valuable in society.  See, when there is a crisis, what is going to get you your food, that is decided only by Vaishyas, not by Kshatriyas.  But, it is unfortunate, the whole lot of confusion.

Based on the purity of food, your intellect gets purified, your memory gets purified, your ability to grasp increases.

Please understand, whenever my teachers wanted to teach subtle concepts…..  I should not use the word “teacher”; I should use the word “Masters”.  I wanted to complete and change the word to “Masters”.  Whenever my Masters wanted to teach me the subtle concepts, they will put me on herbal diet.  They will give me the “Arugampull” (அருகம்புல்).  I don’t know the English name for that grass.  It is a unique grass which grows near the water ponds, which is used for worshipping Ganesha.  So, they will give that juice.  Sometimes the Bael juice, Vilwa (Aegle marmelos, commonly known as bael, golden apple, stone apple, wood apple).  Sometimes Bermuda Grass.  The “Arugampulls” English name is “Bermuda Grass”.  They will give me the Bermuda Grass juice and Bael juice.  Sometimes Neem juice.  And, they will cook pineapple fruit in the night, and they will take the juice in the morning and process it with some traditional herbs and give.  This kind of a juice diet they will put me.  Of course, I enjoyed everything other than Neem juice.  HAHAHAHAHA!  They will put me on the juice diet sometimes even for one month!  I used to wonder why the teaching, means learning of Vedantha, should go with this kind of herbal diet.  One day, I asked them also.  Then they said, ‘Alright, you eat whatever you want and come back.’  And, as usual, in those days, the big feast means that “Vadai” and “Paayasam”  (Vadai = a fried snack.  Paayasam = a semi-liquid sweet dish).  That is the traditional feast.  I went and had all the traditional feast and came back.  They tried to explain some of the concepts, truths of Vedantha.  I tell you honestly, I was not able to grasp!  Then they gave me Gingelly Oil (Sesame Oil) and cleaned my stomach, and Haritaki Powder for two days.  After two-three days, again they started teaching me the concepts.  I was just like that able to grasp!  Then I understood the power of that food and that sutra which says, ‘Aahaara Shuddhi….’:  “Based on the purity of food, your intellect gets purified, your memory gets purified, your ability to grasp increases.” Read More

If you grasp ‘What is “Unmoving”?’, you will grasp, ‘Who Am I?’, ‘What Am I?’

I will expand on the fourth verse of Ishavasya Upanishad.  Please recite along with me.

अनेजदेकं मनसो जवीयो नैनधेवा आप्नुवन्पुर्वमर्षत् |

तद्धावतोऽन्यानत्येत तिष्ठत् तस्मिन्नपो मातरिश्वा दधाति ||

Anejadhekam Manaso Javeeyo Nainadhdheva Aapnuvanpurvamarshath |

ThadhDhaavathonyanathyetha Thishttath Thasminnapo Maatharishva dhadhDhaathi ||

 

Understand, yesterday I was expanding on why these qualities of Consciousness, Eesha, are described.  As I said, even if you describe a negative quality, Eesha becomes Eeshwara.  The moment you try to perceive, relate, connect, even to become one with Eesha, he has to grace us as Eeshwara.  Only then he can make us as Eesha.

Please listen!  Again and again, I repeat, “Aham” can never become “Shivoham”.  Only Shiva can extend himself and just take the whole “Aham” inside and radiate as “Shivoham”.  Eesha, the pure space, the Consciousness, without any attributes, you cannot even give the attribute of “Super-Consciousness” or “Super Super-Consciousness”.  The attributeless.  I can say, “attributeless” is not a proper word; that word doesn’t convey the meaning.  “Unattributable” – you cannot attribute anything.  That Consciousness, the moment you try to describe, positively or negatively, the moment you try to describe – ‘Oh, it is compassionate.  It is ever-loving.  It is graceful.’ – then you are giving a positive description.  Or, if you do negative description – ‘It cannot be realized by mind, speech, senses, where the life energy moves and expands.’ – where you give the negative description – ‘Gods of senses cannot overtake and go beyond it.’ – “Nainadhdheva Aapnuvanpurvamarshath” (नैनधेवा आप्नुवन्पुर्वमर्षत्), ‘It cannot be cut by the sword and what not’. 

Understand, whether you give positive attributions or negative descriptions, the Eesha becomes Eeshwara to support us to experience Eesha.  But Eesha and Eeshwara are not two; it is pure Oneness.  Listen!  Eesha and Eeshwara are not two; it is pure Oneness. 

That is why working on the Consciousness, whether during the positive attributes, or through the negative descriptions, makes us experience Eesha, the Consciousness. Read More

Saying “NO” to life, leads to the lower levels of existence, “Dussangha”, company of the lower level people.

असुर्या नाम ते लोका अन्धेन तमसाऽऽवृताः । ताँस्ते प्रेत्याभिगच्छन्ति ये के चात्महनो जनाः ॥

Asurya naama they lokaa andhena thamasaavruthaah | Thaagumsthey prethyabhigachchanthi ye ke chaathmahano janaah ||

Listen!  “Athmahana”, saying “NO” to life, leads to the lower levels of existence, “Dussangha”, company of the lower level people.  I tell you, that is the hell!  That is the hell! 

Company of the lower level people, because, they will somehow brainwash you to get into their space, and they will make you do what they want you to do.  Finally, they will put you in trouble; then they will escape; because they are very shrewd.  They will escape so that they will go and haunt the other person. One fellow, very popular preacher of suicide theology, he will preach, teach, literally mesmerize, hypnotize everyone to commit suicide, and lot of people have started committing suicide.  Teaching death is very easy.  That is why all death-based concepts spread like a wildfire.  All the death-based religions, concepts, killing yourself and killing others, they spread like a wildfire.  But the life-based religions, concepts, take lot of time.  The best life-based religion in Toto, hundred percent, is Jainism.  The pure, life-based religion, Ahimsa and life, saying “YES” to life!  But how much struggle that religion has to go through to spread!  Actually, there are no followers; literally there are no followers of Jainism.  That is the truth.  Except a handful of monks, a few people!  Because, it is life-based, doesn’t spread that wildly.  But all death-based concepts, they just spread like wildfire!

Bharata Desha was ideologically centred, economically independent! It was such a powerful, beautiful, unimaginable, inimitable system!

I will continue to expand on the truths I was revealing about “desha” (“देश” ) and “nation”.

Understand, “desha”, the very concept of “desha” is from the truth of the Vedic Tradition:

|| अन्नम् बहु कुर्वीत ||

“Annam Bahu Kurveetha”.

Listen! अन्नम् बहु कुर्वीत (“Annam Bahu Kurveetha”); means, “Let us produce food in large quantities”.

Producing not just food, but everything in large quantity, and making it available to everyone as easily as possible is “desha”.

“Nation” means, even the natural things, making it as complicated as possible, and not letting the common-man have access to it, through this claiming your superiority.

Understand, there is a big difference. In original Vedic Civilization, the concept of “desha” is: “Produce as much as you can and exchange it”. It was not that in Vedic Civilization we did not have business. We had! But there was never a low value for shoes and high value for knowledge, understand? It is the modern civilization which is really caste-oriented. The moment you put low value for shoes and high value for food or knowledge, you have already made a difference between Brahmana and Shudra! There was never valuation between shoes and knowledge. The man who produces shoes, produces in large quantity, and makes it available to his community. The man who makes knowedge, makes it available for everyone. Don’t ever spread the lie that Shudras were not allowed, did not have access to education. No! No! Read More

When You Sit, Truth is revealed !

UPANISHADS!  Actually, just every day when I come and sit here and utter that word, “Upanishads”, the way the truths are overflowing, verbalization becomes a big job!  Finding ideas is not at all a big job; verbalizing them has become a big job!

There are tons of books and tons of authors.  But, this book, Upanishads, to tell you honestly, if I have to put it a little poetically, the words feel shy to introduce Upanishads!  Words feel shy to introduce Upanishads!  If a child asks, ‘What is the size of an apple?’, you can show like this (Swamiji gestures with his hands).  ‘What is the size of a pumpkin?’, you can show like this (Swamiji again gestures with his hands).  If the child asks, ‘What is the size of the Planet Earth?’, can you show like this?  (Swamiji spreads his arms wide).  No!  This is not in any way signifying the size of the Planet Earth!  You can show, ‘This big!’  (Swamiji again spreads his arms wide).  But, that is in no way signifying the size of the Planet Earth!  That is in no way doing justification to the size of the Planet Earth!  Please understand!  So, what will I do with these words to introduce Upanishads?  I can only pull my mouth like this and say, “It is this big!’ 

The way they introduce you to you, the way they introduce the world to you, the way they introduce god to you, the way they introduce life to you, nothing can be compared to Upanishads.  Whether the purity of the substance they are delivering, or the poetic way they are expressing, or the very sound in which they have nicely embedded the vibrations of Kundalini awakening!  Upanishads not only have a linguistic and poetic importance, meaning, they have even phonetic importance.  Even phonetically they are important.  Actually, by the religious historians classifying Upanishads under Hinduism, they brought a great respect to Hinduism.  And, of course, Hindus are the inheritors.  It is our inheritance, no doubt.  But we need to live it and share it with the world.  It does not belong just to us.  Please understand, we might have been inheritors, but it does not belong just to us; it belongs to the whole universe!   Read More

Most Important Person (MIP)

When I had the enlightenment experience, first instruction Kuppammal gave me is this only. Around two-and-a-half days I was in that vast 360 degree experience. It will feel like as if the whole sky is centred on my Ananda Gandha. If I have to put a cartoon, huge, the whole sky and I have to bring two line and connect it to my Ananda Gandha. It will look like a huge balloon which is tied to my Ananda Gandha, and that balloon is the whole Cosmos! She (Kuppammal) used to cook and feed me and she also used to give lot of uncooked herbs to prepare my body and keep my body stable.

The first instruction she gave after two-and-a-half days: ‘Remember, Brahmaivaaham’! Please understand, she says, ‘Remember, this body is the vehicle of Brahman, Cosmos.’ She did not tell me ‘Aham Brahmasmi’. She said, ‘Brahmaivaaham’! Means, this body is a vehicle of that Brahman. You are carrying the most important person in the world. Not VIP, Very Important Person; MIP, Most Important Person. Let’s create a new word…..HAHAHAHAHA: ‘Most Important Person’! Brahmaivaaham! Luxury of the Kundalini! Again and again I want to repeat that word, ‘Luxury of Kundalini’. ‘Veda Shaastra Guru Tatthu Swayam Ananda Lakshanam’! ‘As per the Vedas, Shaastras and teachings of the Guru, my Self is the pure bliss’! When you come to this experience that is what I call ‘Luxury of Kundalini’.

How you carry your shoulders and neck every day when you walk out of your room to live your life, what you carry in your eyes to share with the world…. Understand, whatever you carry in your eyes, nose, face, mouth, it gets shared with the world without even you pressing the ‘share’ button! Without you clicking the ‘share’ button, it gets shared! That is why Vivekananda says, ‘If you are carrying stupid depression, don’t come out of the room. Better you lock yourself in the room!’ Be a ‘poadugaali’; that’s enough! In Tamil, there are two words – ‘oadugaali’ and ‘poadugaali’. When they are depressed if they run away, they are ‘oadugaalis’. When they are depressed if they run inside the room, they are ‘poadugaalis’. HAHAHAHA! Being a ‘poadugaali’ is much better than being a ‘oadugaali’. HAHAHAHA! These are all Tamil village slang words. Understand what you carry……. Whether it is a webinar or Inner Awakening Level-1 or 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 or 6 it all boils down to: Awaken your Kundalini! Read More

Living Advaitha VII

…continued from Living Advaitha VI

Please understand, when you have described your identity, when you describe consciously how you want to be and ask your teamily to support you, give you the input, what all the incompletions you may have to complete, and after the teamily gives the input if you also work with it and complete all the incompletions you are carrying.

Please understand, I am giving you some of the examples so that you can be very practical and very precise.  Please listen, I will give you some of the most practical hints. See, for example, if you want always people should perceive you as a loving, caring, joyful being, the first thing you need to complete is, you may be having a deep non-trusting attitude.  Listen!  In the heart if you carry the non-trusting attitude, naturally, neither you will be comfortable with people, nor people will be comfortable with you.  So, first thing you need to do is completing with the non-trusting attitude and building up the ability to trust.  May be, if you tell your whole teamily that this is where you need to do Completion, your whole teamily will be constantly reminding you.

Teamily is nothing but the embodiment of Guru surrounding you from all corners.  Listen!  Teamily is nothing but embodiment of Guru surrounding you from all corners, constantly reminding you. 

If you always want to be perceived as a loving, caring, blissful being, you have a deep incompletion about trusting others, if you tell this to everyone, share this with your whole teamily, your whole teamily will be constantly helping you to separate and see your insecurity and the real, actual threat possibility.  Many times, if the threat possibility is even very small, because of your insecurity you cannot trust, your teamily can constantly help you to separate these two.  And, I tell you, only when you separate these two, you make a successful right strategy even for your security.  When you are constantly agitated about the cockroach, you allow the scorpion in your bed!  Because, constantly, you are frightened about the cockroach, you are too busy in protecting you from the cockroach, you allow the cobra and scorpion in your bed!  They both are sitting there to receive you!  When you separate the real possibility of threat and your incompletion, insecurity superimposed, these two separate, listen, listen, only then, only then even the security will be better.  The whole teamily will help you, support you, constantly remind you.  That is why the teamily.  But, I am very clear, I don’t want anybody other than your teamily to know your incompletions.  An onlooker or a person on the street can exploit you constantly.  I don’t want that.  The teamily should be a loving space for you to grow. Like how you help youraasandhari to grow.

I tell you, some of the best moments of my life was when I was serving Arunagiri Yogishwara, Raghupathi Yogi, and a great sadhu in Ramakrishna Mission, Swami Gautamananda.  Of course, Swami Gautamananda will never even imagine I will still be carrying so much of love and reverence and respect for him in my heart, but, the time I served him, I got an insider’s view of a powerful sadhu’s life.  Understand, he was not an ordinary sannyasi of the Ramakrishna Order; he was one of the Trustees.  Ramakrishna Mission has only eleven Trustees, and he was one, and a senior Trustee.  I think he now even gives initiation.  In Ramakrishna Mission, only one or two people are allowed to give initiation in the whole Order.  He is one of the two-three who give initiation, Mantra Deeksha.  So, such a top-level sadhu.  When I had the possibility to see his life very closely….Wow!  I tell you, the amount of integrity and purity with the whole day spent, the amount of integrity and purity used even to take administrative decisions of the organization, not just the personal decisions, even the administrative decisions of the organization!  I tell you, as long as we remain pure, we retain our integrity even in our administrative decisions, we will continue to exist.
