Your own Existential experience is only one, your ātman, self. Everything else is your perceptional experience. If you remember in the dream, is this perceptional reality or existential reality?, you will wake up. In the waking state, if you remember, is this perceptional reality or existential reality?, you will be awakened.

Kenopanishad. The sacred secrets revealed in the Kenopanishad.  The 3rd and 4th mantra in the second khanḍaḥ of Kenopanishad.

yasyāmataṁ tasya mataṁ  mataṁ yasya na veda saḥ
avijñātam vijānatāṁ vijñātmavijānatām || 3||

The 4th verse recite along with Me:

pratibodhaviditaṁ matamamṛtatvaṁ hi vindate
ātmanā vindate vīryaṁ  vidyayā vindate ‘mṛtam || 4 ||

I’ll read out the translation for the 3rd and 4th verse, then reveal the sacred secrets.

He by whom, It is not known, to him It is known and experienced; he by whom, it is Known, to him, It is not known or perceived. It is unknown to those, who think they know It well and known to those, who know It not.

The 4th Verse:

It is truly known, when the Self is consciously cognized and subjectively known to oneself in each state of Consciousness with every modification of the mind and intellect. Through such complete, matured cognition of the Pure Self is attained immortality, amṛtatvam —existence in one’s own Self. By Ātman, the Pure Self is attained real strength, the space of powerfulness. And by Vidyā, Complete Knowledge of the Self is experienced Immortality, which is the true nature of Ātman.

This thought-current I am giving you has liberated me!

If your room is too hot, suffocating, the moment you come out of your room you will feel a little breeze, cold, nice, even though the weather is not as you think. As a comparison, you will experience the weather is better. But for somebody who is already standing outside, may want to go into the room. Understand, comparative realities are not existential realities. Comparative realities are more for the sake of comfort. It is more for the sake of comfort. You plan: ‘Better shall I do this job or that job?’ It is a comparative reality. Most of the time you exist and die in comparative reality itself! No! The biggest conspiracy against human-beings is atheism! Atheism, where more than comparative reality, no other reality is not only not accepted, even possibility to explore is denied!

Today in the Nithyananda Times Video, one of my Balasants, Dhyanananda, when he was telling, ‘Jnanatma challenged me to bring rain. I asked, I created space; rain happened. Then I suddenly realized I can play with Nature!’ First thing I want to tell you, I studied, I already heard about this whole incident and studied; it was true! It was not that automatically it rained. It rained actually by the space created by Dhyanananda. That is true. What he said is true. Second, a kid feeling, ‘I can play with Nature’, God, it is just unimaginable boon anybody can receive especially when they are kid! Jnanatma is also saying, that also, only in that town it rained, that village it rained! Nowhere else! Read More

Whatever Completion you see outside is inside you, whatever incompletion or conflict you see outside is inside you!

I will continue to expand on the sixth verse. 

यस्तु सर्वाणि भूतान्यात्मन्यॆवानुपश्यति ।

सर्वभूतॆषु चात्मानं ततॊ न विजुगुप्सतॆ ॥

Yasthu Sarvaani Bhoothaani Aathmanyeva Anupashyathi |

Sarva Bhootheshu Cha Aathmaanam Thatho Na Vijugupsathe ||

“One who, indeed, lives by seeing as it is the whole Existence, all the manifest and un-manifest existing in the Consciousness itself, and the Consciousness existing in the whole Existence, thus does not feel violated or hates anything existing, by virtue of not seeing oneself as separate from the Consciousness.”

Listen! Today I am going to explain the subtle nuances, when you put an idea inside you, how your mind creates ripple effects. Please understand, the moment I say, ‘Everything is in your Consciousness, you are in everything that exists’, for a normal person, the first thing that will come up, the ripples created in you, ‘Oh, if everything is in me and I am in everything, why there is so much of suffering and conflict? Whom I love, don’t love me. Who loves me, I don’t feel love towards them.’

Please understand, somehow, love by its very nature, is triangle, never circle, because, whoever loves you, somehow you already take them for granted and you feel they are already in your kitty, in your pocket. And you want always adventure, exploring, excitement. So, ‘Come on, let us see the next! This is already there in my pocket! It is in my bag only!’ It is like, ‘Let us see the next house. This house already I got what I want to. The rice is in my bag. Go to the next house, like bhiksha, when you go for bhiksha.’ So, your conflicts stand up. Whoever I love, never loves me. Whoever loves me, somehow I feel taking it for granted with them; I don’t show the same love towards them. This is one of the biggest problems. ‘If everything is in me, and I am in everything, why this conflicts?’ Read More

Everything exists in me and I exist in everything!

यस्तु सर्वाणि भूतान्यात्मन्यॆवानुपश्यति ।

सर्वभूतॆषु चात्मानं ततॊ न विजुगुप्सतॆ ॥

Yasthu Sarvaani Bhoothaani Aathmanyeva Anupashyathi |

Sarva Bhootheshu Cha Aathmaanam Thatho Na Vijugupsathe ||

 If you find, ‘I am away from body and mind, and everything is there, and that everything is here, this is everywhere’, that is a Brahmanical way of realizing.  But if you understand, ‘Everything is in me, and I am in everything, and I will know how to alter and change, do what I have to do’, that is the way of realization of Shaivites, understand?

Listen!  I will repeat.  There are two logic, two ways you can realize that you exist in everything and everything exists in you.

One: The moment fear and greed happens, you understand, ‘After all I am not this body and mind.  I will be away.  So, I exist in everything, that exists in me.  Whatever happens, happens.’  This is the Brahmanical way.  This is the Brahmanical interpretation of this verse.  That is the way this verse is made practical in Brahmanical thinking. 

There is another thinking trend: Read More

Romance with the life, not because it is your other half, because it is you.

Let us enter into the sixth verse.  

यस्तु सर्वाणि भूतान्यात्मन्यॆवानुपश्यति ।

सर्वभूतॆषु चात्मानं ततॊ न विजुगुप्सतॆ ॥

Yasthu Sarvaani Bhoothaani Aathmanyeva Anupashyathi |

Sarva Bhootheshu Cha Aathmaanam Thatho Na Vijugupsathe ||

 Yes!

One who, indeed, lives by seeing as it is the whole Existence existing in the Consciousness, the Self itself, and the Consciousness existing in the whole Existence, by virtue of not seeing oneself as separate from the Consciousness, does not feel violated or hates anything existing.

“One who, indeed, lives by seeing as it is the whole Existence, all manifest and un-manifest beings existing in the Consciousness itself, and the Consciousness existing in the whole Existence, thus does not feel violated or hates anything existing, by virtue of not seeing oneself as separate from Consciousness.”

So the concept you have about you plays a very important, major role, in the way you live, the way you exist.

Understand, I am not searching for my other half, because I am not half!  I am already full!  I am complete!  So, what you experience about you, that decides your attitude about life, understand?  If you feel there is something other than you existing, you may have fear, or, feeling.  If you think the other part will complete you, you will have feeling, romance.  If you have an ounce of romance in the room, everything will be cleared, then fear will start happening; that’s all.

So What!!!

I tell you, if there is a snow storm, God will give you the ability to grow hair just like Polar Bear!  Be very clear, never ever your existence is denied, you are tortured, unless YOU decide to torture yourself.  Neither poverty nor disease or death itself can violate you.

One of the biggest problems we carry before even life attacks us, we conclude and decide life is going to attack us, and commit suicide!  Stop this pattern of constantly feeling violated.  I am telling you, the most stupid pattern a human-being suffers is “feeling violated”, and when you tell them, they get angry towards you.  That is the worst thing!  When I tell them, ‘Arrey, listen!  Even death cannot violate you!  Neither your poverty nor your disease or any depression, nothing can violate you!’, whoever understands that, with whoever’s inner space this statement echoes, you feel connected to it, you just feel, ‘Yes, it seems true’, you are Mahadeva!

I tell you, the one and only basic blood group of Mahadeva…..  I am using a new word: “Mahadeva’s Blood Group”!  If you want to become Mahadeva’s blood group, if you want to join his club of Shiva-gana, just one truth –

“Nothing can violate you!”

– remember that!  Read More

Inner Image drank the Life Image, ate the Outer Image, dancing on Others’ Image.

तदेजति तन्नैजति तद्दूरे तद्वन्तिके।
तदन्तरस्य सर्वस्य तदु सर्वस्यास्य बाह्यतः॥

Thadhejathi Thannaijathi Thadhdhoore Thadhvanthike |

Thadhantharasya Sarvasya Thadhu Sarvasyaasya Baahyathah ||

 It is truth that Consciousness moves, and, at the same time, it is truth that Consciousness does not move.  Truth that Consciousness is far off from the farthest space, the truth that Consciousness is also nearer than the nearest space.  Truth is the inner space of the whole Cosmos.  Truth is also the outer space of the whole Cosmos.  Pervading an uniformly ever-present inside and encompassing this Cosmos from the outside, pervading an uniformly ever-present inside and encompassing this Cosmos from outside.

It is an amazing sutra!  Please listen!  What Upanishads want to declare through this verse: Break from something which is making you perceive “inside” “outside” separately, “moving” “unmoving” separately, “anthara” “baahyathah” separately.

Listen!  Thadhejathi Thannaijathi (तदेजति तन्नैजति) – “moving” “unmoving” separately.  What is that, that makes you perceive something as “moving”, something as “unmoving”?  What is that, that makes you perceive something is “near”, something is “far off”.  What is that, that makes you perceive something is “inside you”, and something is “outside you”?

Saying “YES” to life is always right and brings all good things!

Let us start on the third verse of Ishavasya Upanishad:  

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!  Please listen!  No one is good, no one is bad.  If somebody does the actions which fulfill your ambitions, you call them as “good”.  If somebody does actions which are not fulfilling your ambitions, you call them “bad”.  No one is right, no one is wrong.  No one is good, no one is bad.  Deciding somebody is good or bad, right or wrong, is purely dependent on how much they are supporting your ambition.  So, what Cosmos answers, what is the answer of Cosmos for this issue?  

The Upanishads, please understand, Upanishads are Dharma declaring its authority and authenticity by itself.  No human-being is involved in it.  No human vested interests are involved in it.  No!  Here, no Prophet, no Messenger, no Son of God, not even God, is involved, understand?  Hindu Tradition is so bold, God has only second place!  The Dharma, Upanishads, stand taller than the concept of God, understand?  It stands taller than the concept of God!   Read More

  • Early Upanishads doesn’t have Dhyana only Shravana, Manana, Nidhidhyasana.
  • Perpetually being in the space of Completion and Powerfulness is Unclutching.
  • Enriching is not business for Me. It is business for your consciousness.

Nidhidhyasana

I translate the word Nidhidhyasana with my own authority as “RADIATING”. Even though the word literally means “Expressing” or “Living”, I am translating this word as Radiating. It is a little more powerful!

What I mean exactly by the word Nidhidhyasana“Radiating”?

Please understand, let your every decision every moment, every action every moment, every word every moment be aligned to what you authentically listened (shravana) and to what you authentically internalized (manana). Removing the gap between your internalized, intranalyzed great truths and your living.

If you authentically listened, if you have done Shravana, listening authentically, Manana, intranalyzing authentically, you will be radiating authentically. Nothing can be done about it! When the Shravana, listening, and Manana, intranalyzing, happens authentically, Nidhidhyasana, radiating will happen authentically.

Intranalyzing and Radiating! Please listen, your life needs to be constantly powerful. You should be living to do what you want. You should be talking to get the result of what you want. You should be talking to move the other person the way you want. You should be talking into the listening of the listener! You should not be talking fighting with the patterns of the listener. You should be talking into the listening of the listener!

When will that happen?

If you are established into your listening, you will talk into the other person’s listening.

If I have to simply translate the word radiating in a very colloquial way, “Nidhidhyasana”, “radiating” means:

Minding your business! Not wasting your life! Laziness, boredom, diversion do not have a place in your life when you are radiating. It is straightforward! “Radiating” means RADIATING! Live your life intensely. Live your life authentically. Live your life with strength. Live your life without confusion.

First thing you need to learn to radiate, for Nidhidhyasana is: Learn to think and speak with the same cognition you arrive at by intranalyzing.

Please understand, I am explaining step-by-step:

First, you authentically listen to the great truths. Whenever you authentically listen, whatever you listen will be converted as great truths by your inner-space. Your inner-space has the capability, it has the power to separate right and wrong.

In Vedic Tradition, we have a beautiful example called Paramahamsa! The bird Hamsa (Swan), if you mix rice and some other items, it will separate the rice and only eat that. If you mix milk and water and keep that, it will suck only the milk and leave the water! The Hamsa, the bird Hamsa has that power. Same way, a man who takes the right things inside and leaves the unnecessary things outside is “Paramahamsa” (Supreme Swan). If you bring authentic listening into you, you will become Paramahamsa! Anything you listen, you know what to internalize and what to reject, what to internalize and what to reject.

Authentic listening brings tremendous clarity. See, it is clarity which is really lacking in the seekers’ life. Especially when somebody is interested to get enlightened, live the life of a Jeevan Muktha, clarity is a very predominantly important quality, a very predominantly important quality! Please listen! Clarity! Shankara has written a separate book on this subject – Viveka Choodamani. The whole book is on “Clarity”. Authentic listening leads to clarity.

And intranalyzing, Manana, leads to cognitive shift. If you don’t live that cognitive shift powerfully, you will lose it! Please understand!

Powerfully living the cognitive shift is what I call “Radiating”.

I tell you, how to find out whether you are radiating or not? Simply life around you will constantly be getting enriched, that is the signal! If the constant enriching is happening, then you are radiating! Around me, whether you are six or sixty, eight or eighty, you cannot go without getting enriched! “Radiating” means, such powerful body language, such powerful words, such powerful thinking, you go on enriching, constantly winning the game of life!

I tell you, Nidhidhyasana means “having the power to live from the space of Completion and establishing everyone in the space of Completion”.

“Radiating” means, every word you utter will be from the strength of that cognitive shift, the excitement of that cognitive shift.

I had a cognitive shift when my Guru blessed me, ‘You will always be taken care of by the Cosmos!’ I had that cognitive shift. Immediately I decided to live it. I threw everything, whatever I had as security in my life – the house, family, relatives – and started my yatra. I said I will learn to teach; I will learn, teach, and learn to teach. I can say that was my purpose of spiritual pilgrimage: Learning and teaching, and learning to teach. I started my yatra, I started my journey.

Understand, “radiating” means, powerfully living the cognitive shift you experience, powerfully risking to taste the power of the cognitive shift in your reality, and proving the cognitive shift in your reality.

When I left the house, I did not want to disprove that blessing given to me that the Cosmos takes care of me; I wanted to prove that blessing that the Cosmos takes care of me. Many times, when you take the risk, you take the risk to disprove. ‘Come on, let me see, will the Cosmos take care of me? I will leave everything and go. Let me see whether it is going to give me food or not!’ No! Living, deciding to prove it, to make it into reality. When I left the house, I know it is the truth and I have decided I will prove this into reality, to teach the power of spiritual pilgrimage to the world. I tell you, the spiritual yatra, pilgrimage itself is a powerful spiritual practice. Pilgrimage itself is a powerful spiritual practice! Because I did it, I proved the power of the Cosmos protecting!

I can define Nidhidhyasana: “Living with such intensity and risking everything for the understanding you have by your intranalyzing”.

When you are radiating, enriching will happen as a side-effect. You don’t even need to bother about it! Enriching is the first side-effect of Nidhidhyasana. Whether you are living or not can be understood by the way the enriching is happening. Enriching!

I am giving you the essence of Nidhidhyasana:

First, intense thinking and authentic speaking, speaking into the listening of the listener, speaking to move the listener as you want. Sometimes we speak just to catharsise – ‘Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah…’ – and we are happy with it! No, really! That is not Nidhidhyasana. Nidhidhyasana means speaking into the listening of the listener, so that he’s moved, by your words, and living the cognitive shift you have. Only when you live, you respect the cognitive shift. Only when you respect the cognitive shift, it becomes part of your life.

The three words of Vedanta for enlightened life – ‘shravana,’ authentic listening, ‘manana,’ intranalyzing, ‘nidhidhyasana,’ authentic living, radiating!

When you radiate, you go on win the game of live, every time, everywhere.
