Listen! Listen! Whether you are good or bad is going to be decided based on whether your acts are complete with your concept of life. Understand, if your concept of life is all about pleasure and money, and your acts are complete with it, you will have that. That’s all! There is nobody to judge whether money is the ultimate purpose of life. Forget about that! God is not a judge, please understand. He only sees the kind of Completion you are carrying. And, ultimately, he does not even see that. It is an automated mechanism as far as the … Continue reading Why the bad people are so rich, good people are so poor. Bad people are so healthy, good people are having disease?

“One should desire to live in this world for hundreds of years, all the while doing his deeds dispassionately as sanctioned by the scriptures. In this way, the deeds done by you shall not cling to you. There is no other way by which a man can free himself from the bondage created by the deeds.”
Listen! Let me explain what is “Karma”.
“Karma” is the bondage created in you by your commission or omission of certain acts which is incomplete with your own cognition about life.
Listen! If you think money is life, some of the acts you did which didn’t bring money to you, or some of the acts you did not do, again which deprived you from money, commission or omission of certain acts which is incomplete with your concept of life, is “Karma”.
And, any commission or omission of the acts which is in sync and complete with your concept of life does not bring you any Karma. It does not bring you any incompletion. Continue reading “What is “Karma” ?”
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! Continue reading “When You Sit, Truth is revealed !”
Krishna….I tell you, Krishna is the most time-tested enlightened master, and Gita is the most time-tested teaching, because even while he was delivering, the listener is not ready to believe. He has to go to the extreme of showing the … Continue reading Yogo Nashta Paranthapaha
Wealth is not a thing to be created or managed. It is you. If you are not having wealth be very clear the flow of your very being has some serious flaw. Please understand. Krishna says very clearly “Gahano Karmano Gathihi”. Life is work. If you are not having wealth you are working for poverty. You work for only 2 things in your life: either you work for wealth or you work for poverty. Find out how you are working for poverty and change the tendency to work for wealth. Poverty is sin, please understand. Dump the statement: “Blessed are … Continue reading If you are not having wealth, you are working for poverty.
Questionnaire: ‘According to the Upanishads, we are not the “doer” where we do our job at work. How can we detach ourselves from the doing and just work as a service for the world that God created? If I am not supposed to have a desire to succeed in my business, and have pride, what will motivate me to do it? And, how can I detach myself from this desire to be successful?’ Swamiji: I will read the question. ‘According to the Upanishads, we are not the “doer” where we do our job at work. How can we detach ourselves from the … Continue reading You are not the doer, your incompletions are
What is inner space ? Inner space means when you close your eyes and look inside, how you feel, what you feel as you, that is inner space. Second, what is silence? If that inner space—if you suddenly feel as … Continue reading What is inner space? What is silence? When will I experience silence? How do I know if I am meditating rightly?
IA Participant: Swamiji, I had some question, but that has been answered. I am very curious about the time duration. You answered, ‘One-and-a-half hours medically’, you answered, ‘Thirteen days’. Between the various analogies you have given about fractured mirror and the other mirror, I am very curious as to, when they say “spirits”, “troubled souls”……. Swamiji: They are the committed, people who committed suicide. Those terrorized souls…. See, you can’t even call them “souls”; it is like a broken, chaotic mirror on which the slight reflection also falls, because the reflection is universal. So, what happens to that broken pieces … Continue reading Are ghosts real ?
By your very nature, your consciousness, your existence is immortal. It cannot get destroyed. It cannot lose any of its glory. It cannot lose any of its attributes, powers. It can neither be damaged nor be destroyed. Even if you carry the desperate fear, anxiety, anger, even your desperation cannot make your consciousness lose its glory, its existence, its immortality. But, unfortunately, when you start believing that you are mortal, you can be disturbed, you can be damaged, you can be harassed, you can be abused, you can be killed, you can lose some of your original qualities, physically or … Continue reading The first aggression
Waiting for Life to inspire us is stupidity. More than what you say, how you hold yourself; that spontaineity is going to play a very major role in Enriching. Compassion is directly connected to Self-confidence. Continue reading
Cognizing your life and decisions based on just these few truths, these few facts, is what I call “Space of Advaitha”. Everything is you. Whether you call everything is a joy addition to you, whether you call everything is a problem added to you, whether you feel everything is lead in your life to further you, or a load to your life to stop you from furthering – listen – whether you feel everything which comes around you, the people, things, situations, everything is a lead happening in your life to further you, expand you, make you successful, or you … Continue reading Giving up on is nothing but arrogance !
