By nature, man has to work. The senses have to be engaged in some action. Even if you try and control them and do nothing externally, the very act of restraint is an action in itself. Kṛṣṇa says very beautifully, ‘By nature, the senses are tuned to be extrovert.’ ‘Extrovert’ is not something negative. Extrovert senses will always be alive, creative, active and contributing. All great creative persons took the responsibility for their extrovert senses. If you want to be wealthy, have the company of wealthy people, or make the people in your company wealthy! If you want to be spiritual, have the company of spiritual people, or make the people in your company spiritual. There is no other way. Intranalyze what I am saying.
To experience the reality of your choice in your life, you should first work to transform and enrich the reality of others around you. Kṛṣṇa says, your senses, by nature are programmed to go out! You are programmed to work, to go out. Going out can happen only in two ways: either to enrich or to swindle! Surely, swindling others is not going to transform you. Only enriching others is going to transform you. The choice is really about how to work. Here, Kṛṣṇa gives the answer to that. He says that we should perform work with devotion with authenticity in our actions, only to enrich, and without attachment to the results, karmendriyaiḥ karma-yogam asaktaḥ sa viśiṣyate (3.7).

Understand. Shakti, power, can be generated in your system through 3 ways. Certain words, ideas can generate Shakti, like when you have a hope, thought current, that your future is going to be very rich, brilliant, bright. Those words, generate certain kind of enthusiasm, excitement or visualizations. It can be simple as visualization of your vacation – “Wow, if you do all this, end of the day you are going to have “weekend” or a sexual visualizations – “ I am going to have this pleasure.” Understand. Sex does not mean only the physical relationship. I call everything which you consider pleasure under the title “sex.” It can be coffee, it can be some special food, it can be some special music, it can be some special place or a time with a special person, anything, anything visually excites you and makes energy ooze out in your system. Continue reading “No verbalization based excitement, no visualization based inspiration. Allow only the pure Oneness to excite you and push you, drive you to live your life. Deity Alankaram and Goseva are the best lubrication for body to settle down with the new fuel, Kundalini Shakti!”

Learn the art of prana pratishta. Learn the art of prana pratishta, giving life to what you want. Then you will just live in conflict free life. Understand it is a very simple truth. I think I would have explained, this villager with whom I had a very strange experience.
During my wandering, I was resting in the noon time under a tree putting my head on a small stone which had the turmeric, all that, little puja was done on that. But I did not expect that it is worshipped by someone as God. I thought maybe some, in every village, every stone, every tree is worshipped.
In India, that is why when British put the milestones, first it was all painted in yellow, suddenly they saw in one week, all milestones have a, fully dressed, decked with flowers and people have started worshipping and everything has become temple.
In your life even though you gave power to all the conflicts after you start perceiving it, you forget you gave power to those conflicts. Continue reading “Life has no conflict, conflict has no life. If you have given life to conflict, if it is hurting you, just move it to the life! Give power to life continuously!”
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.

The master is the ultimate luxury in your life. When the master happens in our lives, nothing else is needed. If he does not happen, nothing else is of use. He is a channel to bring wisdom to our life and to update it, according to our need.
Life energy and the master are not two different things. Masters again and again emphasize the beautiful concept called experiencing the master inside. Only until you experience the master inside, you think you need the master from the outer world. Once you experience the master inside, you don’t need the master from the outer world. See, when a meditation technique is done with a master, it becomes an alchemy process. If you do it alone in your home it is called meditation. When you do it along with the master, in the presence of the master, guided by the master, it becomes alchemy. It is like boiling you. The process becomes so alive and intense. Continue reading “Swamiji, why do you insist on being in the presence of the master?”
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!”
In the day, whatever you do, you call it as life. In the night, whatever you do, you call it as a dream. In the day, if you are not able to do anything, you call it as death. In the night, if you are not able to do anything, you call it as deep sleep.
In the day, if you have three things: experiencer, experienced and the experience, it is called life.
We can take the example of drinking coffee in which there are three elements: the coffee one drinks, the person who drinks the coffee and the experience of the state of drinking coffee. If you experience all these three elements in the daytime, it is called life and if you don’t experience all these three, it is called death. In the night time, if you experience all these three, it is called dream and if you don’t experience all these three, it is called deep sleep.
The moment you start moving towards the dream state, the prana starts coming towards the vishuddhi, throat center. The more you move towards the deep sleep state, it moves towards the anahata, heart center. It is the same in the case of life and death as well. The more you are alive and energetic, the more the prana accumulates and gets centered in the forehead. Continue reading “If you can be aware when the prana falls into the heart center every day, you can stop, alter and manage your dreams and deep sleep!”
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)!”
To understand this powerful, life transforming truth, we need to understand about this stuff of which the dream world and this world are made of. We need to know about prana, the life energy that sustains us.
Understand, the air you breathe is just a vehicle in which the prana comes in and goes out. Prana is the life force, the energy itself. Understand this one example. If a truck comes inside this campus and leaves something and goes out, the truck is like the air, the breath. The product that is delivered is prana.
Dreams are made of the same stuff of which this waking world is made. Constantly, the air is going in and leaving the prana inside and the air is coming out. Constantly, we are taking prana through air. In India, if you attended Kumbh Mela, the largest spiritual gathering in the world attended by millions of people, you may have seen the yogis bury their heads totally in the earth for three days. They are able to do this because they know how to take the prana into their body directly from the cosmos without the help of air. As long as you take prana through air, you need to breathe through your nose. You need to inhale and exhale. But, when you can take the prana directly without the help of air, you don’t need to inhale or exhale through the nose. Your body can directly take the prana through the cosmos. Continue reading “What is Prana, the life energy ?”
You are not the eyes. The eyes are just an instrument. Many times you can see, your eyes may be open but you are not seeing, not registering the scene you are seeing.
Innocence means having a clear understanding that whatever you see in the outer world is made of the same stuff out of which your dreams are made.
Just remember you are seeing through the eyes. If you look through the eyes, suddenly you will see you are witnessing everything. You are not the two ‘holes’ called the eyes. You are only seeing through the two holes called eyes.
If you feel you are the two eyes, you are caught in ego. In your dream, as long as the attention is on the objects, you will continue to dream. When your attention is turned towards yourself, that is from the seen to the seer, you will be awakened.
The moment you realize you are something beyond the eyes, your attention is turned to the seer. Then you realize that this world is made of the same stuff of which your dream is made. As long as you think you are seeing, the whole attention is on the seen. That is what I call ego. When you step back and realize you are seeing through the eyes, the whole attention is on the seer. That is what I call innocence.
Innocence means having a clear understanding that whatever you see in the outer world is made of the same stuff out of which your dreams are made. Continue reading “When your attention is turned towards yourself, that is from the seen to the seer, you will be awakened!”
There are seven layers or bodies in you.
The body of flesh, bones and blood that you see is the physical body.
The energy moving in you as prana or life energy is the pranic body. There are five kinds of prana or air movements that happen in the body: air that enters into the body, air that circulates inside the body, air that spreads all over the body as life force, air that comes out of the body, and air that cleanses. These form the second body or the pranic body.
The third body is the body where inner chatter continuously happens. Inner chatter is nothing but the continuous stream of words or thoughts that move within you.
The fourth body is made up of emotions like fear, anger and greed which spread as feelings all over the body without even words coming into play. An emotion by itself can simply shake you. This is the emotional layer.
The fifth layer is the body that you experience in deep sleep. This is where all the engraved memories or engrams are stored in the seed or causal level. The engrams are not active but they are not dead either. It is like a deep coma where you are neither living what you want nor are you dead. You are just stuck in this layer. Continue reading “When you go beyond the sixth layer into the nirvanic body, you don’t come back to assume another body!”
