Somebody asked me, ‘Swamiji, can dead Masters teach us like Paramahamsa Yogananda, Mahavatar Babaji etc.? If I pray to them, can they show me the path?’ I told him: dead masters are not dead as you think. When they are … Continue reading These two verses, if they are understood, then not only the whole Bhagavadgita but all the spiritual scriptures can be realized.
Kṛṣṇa starts His message as a response to Arjuna’s question. This shows that Arjuna still needs to have the maturity. He asks, ‘The Sun god is elder to you by birth; he is so much your senior. How am I to understand that in the beginning you instructed this science to him?’
Arjuna and Kṛṣṇa are almost of the same age. Suddenly, Kṛṣṇa says He gave this science to the Sun god thousands of years ago! Moreover, Arjuna lived with Kṛṣṇa for a long time. He knows and has seen the human side of Kṛṣṇa, all of Kṛṣṇa’s līlā (plays), all of Kṛṣṇa’s moods. So now, it is very difficult for Arjuna to believe Kṛṣṇa’s words.
When Rāmakṛṣṇa declared that the same being who came as Rāma and Kṛṣṇa had now come down in the form of Rāmakṛṣṇa, he was called mad! People did not receive or respect him. But a few qualified people received his words and transformed their lives. Continue reading “When Krishna delivered Gita, only one person listened to it, but today the whole world reads and practices it. When the Masters declare the truth, the quantity may not be there, but the quality will be there.”
When you remove hypomania from all the decisions you are making now, your being not only gets healed, it starts intensely manifesting powers. If you can heal, complete, correct, all the past decisions you took due to your hypomania, you will reclaim, retrieve all the powers and energies you destroyed in your past through this methodology and process. You will evolve a being which will not waste time in the future and which will retrieve so much of energy and powers from your past. Literally it will raise you beyond your imagination, expectation about life.
.This can be an immediate path, method, for your enlightenment and power manifestation, to radiate the state, space and powers of Paramashiva.
I will explain elaborately:Continue reading “In the post corona world, the confidence you have about life and consciousness’ ability to live without krodha centric mascharya (hypomania) is going to be the main thing. Don’t be stupid in carrying on the violence. Drop all the shit and load and carry on with absolute non-violence.”
Kṛṣṇa says that the sensory experiences, mātrā-sparśhaḥ are all temporary. Feelings of hot and cold, śītoṣṇa, sweet and sour, wet and dry, experiences of pain and pleasure, sukha-duḥkha, as well as other experiences of like and dislike are all temporary, anityāḥ. These experiences do not affect the centered person who is qualified to be enlightened, so amṛtatvāya kalpate.
These sensory experiences are anitya or impermanent and unreal. Moreover, they are relative. What may be considered hot by one person may not be perceived as hot by another. Continue reading “When one understands this difference between what is eternal, nitya, and what is ephemeral, anitya, one becomes a seer and knower of Truth.”
Supernal effulgence of Paramashiva which is internal, inside you cannot be stopped, taken away from you, but you can choose to get deluded in reactionary assumption patterns and reactionary assumption lifestyle which cause a mess. And whether you are trying to clean up the mess or add more mess caused by the reactionary assumption patterns and lifestyle, both are delusion.
Reactionary assumption patterns means ‘assuming and reacting’. I should call them as mala (undigested food). It not only sits unnecessarily inside you but it is dangerous and toxic inside you.
Sometimes you go on adding to the mess in your life by continuing to operate based on reactionary assumption patterns – mala – and reactionary assumption lifestyle – pasa. If you do this, you are adding more and more haalahaala – poison – in your life and you are getting ____ by yourself. I did not utter but you hear that word! Continue reading “Whether you are trying to clean up the mess or add more mess caused by the reactionary assumption patterns and lifestyle, both are delusion. The one and only solution is unclutching, withdrawing into supernal effulgence of Paramashiva!”
This meditation is to be done before going to sleep.
- Sit straight on your bed.
- Close your eyes.
- Be aware of the third eye, the ajna chakra, which is the subtle energy center between your eyebrows.
- Do not concentrate, do not strain.
- Just be fully aware, in a very relaxed way.
- Be aware of the ajna chakra and of the movement of prana, the life energy. Watch how the prana flows into your body, how the incoming breath brings more energy and the outgoing breath relaxes your body. Just feel it.
- Again, do not concentrate. Just be aware, in a very relaxed way, of the ajna chakra and the flow of the incoming and outgoing breath.
- Now, get into a sleeping position. Be aware of the third eye when you are falling asleep. When you lie down on the bed, decide, ‘Yes, now I am going to fall asleep.’
- Be aware when your consciousness gets diffused, when you are just disappearing into the darkness, into deep sleep.
Before going to sleep, if you are aware of the third eye it is enough, because your prana is hovering there during the waking state. As you fall asleep, the prana will start moving downwards from the third eye.
Next, throughout the day, whenever you remember, think that this whole world is not real, that you are just dreaming, that whatever you are seeing is just a dream. Consciously remember that whatever you are doing – eating, sleeping, walking, drinking, driving, sitting in your office – is all just a dream.
Whatever is happening in front of you, whatever you are experiencing, is a changing dream. Just remember this, that’s all.
Sannyas is not a game of one world against another, of material versus spiritual.
First thing you need to understand is there are no two worlds like material and spiritual. There is only one world.
Second thing is sannyas is not a doctrine. It is a certain attitude of living in the world without suffering. It is an understanding of how to live in the best possible way. It is a conscious decision to live life as close to reality as possible, because living in reality is living in the most optimum way.
When you take up responsibility, a cognitive shift happens in you. Your mental setup changes.
Many of us live life like slaves. For example, if you work eight hours in your office just following orders you will feel dull and tired. Instead, if you take up responsibility and initiative, that same eight hours will become much easier and more enjoyable. For example, take the case of a person who is running his own business and another person who is working for a company. The owner of the business has the full responsibility of his business, but the person who is working for some other company does not really feel the full responsibility. If he does not feel the responsibility, the whole job becomes like a burden on him. There is little or no self-motivation. He keeps looking at his watch to see if it is time to leave! For him, only the first of every month is sweet, since it is payday! In a month, he sacrifices twenty nine days of his life for one day of joy.
A sense of personal responsibility can help turn around any situation. A sense of personal responsibility can achieve great things. When you stand up with responsibility, you become a solid force. Until then, you remain a burden for yourself and for others. Continue reading “Cognitive shift happens when you stand up with responsibility”
There are two important statements I would like to make now that you need to understand.
The first is, whatever you think of as the world is made of the same stuff of which your dreams are made. This is an important statement. If you understand this statement, you can use it for many purposes. If you know how to use the power with which you create your dreams, with that same power, you can express your dreams. Your dreams are the energy out of which your real world is created.
The second is, whatever you see has been created by you, so you have the capacity to change the whole thing also! We always think our life is an accident. No, it is not an accident, it is an incident. If you understand this one statement, your life can change in so many ways. It can change your visualization, your thinking pattern, and your imagination which creates your dreams. Continue reading “You have the capacity to make your dreams into reality as reality is nothing but a dream!”
Be very clear, these are not theories. These are all the truths of thousands of years of research and development by our rishis on the human consciousness.
Let you be very clear, this technology, these techniques can directly develop the quality of your life from today. You don’t have to think, ‘Oh! If I practice this technique for ten years, maybe in the eleventh year, it will give results.’ No!
Let you be very clear, because we do not know this technology, we started suspecting the science itself. For example, in some way if the theory of gravity is useful, applicable in your life, you will not suspect the science of the theory of gravity. But if it doesn’t have any direct application in your life, if you don’t have any direct benefit in your life from the theory, naturally, you tend to forget, you tend to question, and you tend to suspect it. Finally, you tend to completely throw out the whole science itself.
Just because we have not practiced this technology, this kind of truths and techniques in our life, we started suspecting the whole spirituality itself, ‘Is it going to really work for me? Is it going to really help me?’ Continue reading “When you remember this whole life is maya and fall asleep being aware of the third eye, you will naturally be able to heal yourself!”
Constantly, life is slipping and entering into death. Life slipping into death is what we usually call living. Please understand, actually we don’t live. We are just waiting for death to happen. Ordinary human beings don’t live. Life is just slipping into death, disappearing into death. That is the reason however many years you may live, you don’t feel satisfied, and you don’t feel you have lived your life because you don’t even know what life is.
When you become conscious of life, when you start thinking, contemplating about your life, when you bring awareness into your life, you create a new center in your being. Between this life and death, when you bring more awareness into the life, you create a new center, a new space in your life – that is what I call consciousness.
Whenever you are conscious, you start deciding about your life. For example, the more you become aware, the more you start designing or choosing what type of car you should drive, what type of house you should live in, and what type of life you want. You start deciding every inch. You become conscious about everything: how you should talk, how you should behave, how you should think, every inch you start becoming aware.
The moment you start becoming aware, you start deciding, and you start controlling your life. When you become completely aware you will start controlling your death also. Continue reading “Whatever you call as Reality and whatever you call as Dream are both made of Prana (life energy)!”
Actually, jealousy has no solid existence. In that way it is like darkness. Darkness does not have an independent, positive existence. Darkness is not the presence of something. Darkness is just the absence of light. In the same way, jealousy has no independent, solid existence by itself. It is just the absence of knowledge or awareness.
There is no end to comparison because comparison exists in the mind, not in reality. The jealousy that arises from comparison also has no basis.
Some people ask me, ‘Then, is it better for us not to look at others and their achievements? Then there is no problem of comparison at all! Isn’t that the best way out of jealousy?’
I tell them, you can’t escape from your mind just by ignoring your thoughts! If you can look but not be affected by what you see, then you have found the right way. If you can accept and welcome what you see and what happens, then you are centered within yourself and nothing can shake you.
Just by condemning the object of jealousy, you will not be liberated from jealousy itself because the moment you start condemning another person, it means that there is a wound inside you that you are trying to cover up, knowingly or unknowingly.
