Seeking is powerful enough to merge the seeker into that which is sought after!

I will continue to expand the subject I left the day before yesterday’s Satsang, SEEKING. I have not yet completed defining it, and expanding on it. Then I will enter into the next verse, 16th verse. Before that I am reading a question, which is in all your minds, and I wanted to answer – it is not too heavy, so don’t worry. [laughs, referring to His matted hair worn on top of crown]. It’s not too heavy, and it’s very light, and I am very happy about it. I am enjoying it, and I’m really enjoying it. So because I am enjoying it, you guys also enjoy, come on! Tirumular varkavedda sivayoga vedda – means the form of Mahadeva.

I will expand on this great truth – Seeking. Understand, one part of you feels so strongly that you are going to exist forever and you don’t need to worry about the questions of after-life. It is like whenever you see people dying or you hear the news of somebody’s death—you always think for a few seconds, what will happen to me? And then somehow you end up in the conviction that you are going to exist forever, or the problem is not going to come immediately at least, or you just decide that you don’t need to attend to this question at least NOW.

Something, something happens you loose attention and focus from that spark. Please understand, come back to the basic questions — whatever makes you powerless is basic question you are not able to face it. Listen, whatever makes you powerless, is a basic question you are not able to face it—that is the seed of Seeking. Whatever makes you powerless, is the question you are not able to face it; and deciding to face those questions is Seeking.

Listen carefully, I will repeat once more. Whatever makes you powerless, what will happen after death, will I be all alone during my death, or in deathbed all the pain I may have to go through, will I be able to handle? Or if suddenly some poverty happens in my life, if I loose somethings, what will happen? So the questions which makes you powerless, if you decide not to face them, you push yourself into delusion again and again; if you decide to face them, that is Seeking. Read More

Upanishads make you live Advaitha by giving you Sacred Knowledge, Sacred Sentiment and Sacred Cognition.

Satchidananda is not delusion or illusion or imagination. Satchidananda, living Satchitananda is possible. That is the first statement I want to give about Living Advaitha.

Second: The understandings you need, understandings you need for the spiritual possibility, understandings you need for the spiritual possibility, listen, the understandings you need for the spiritual possibility is “Jnana”, Sacred Knowledge.

Sacred Sentiments you need to have, you need certain kind of emotional strength when you go through the transformation. When you start living Advaitha, certain emotional strength is required, and the intensity of the passion and emotion can be used to explode into Living Advaitha to take you to the next, next, next levels.

Your outer conditions don’t matter for you to be established in the cognition of Completion

Understand, if something can be added to me today, tomorrow it can be taken away! If something is not true today, how can it become true tomorrow? “Upaadhi”! That is why, in Sanskrit we have a beautiful word – “Upaadhi”. Means…..it has two meanings: “Titles” and “Disease”. “Titles” and “Disease”, both are called by the word “Upaadhi”. “Rich man” – title. This title, that title. All these “Titles”, and “Disease”, both are one and the same! Understand, what I am talking is not impractical. Listen! It is verily practical for you to practice in your life every day. Our elders have practiced all these.

One elderly woman who used to sell buttermilk, ghee, butter, in my native village, Tiruvannamalai, she used to come to Annamalai Swamigal, Ramana Maharshi’s disciple. She used to come to Annamalai Swamigal, and she will offer every day a little buttermilk or butter to Annamalai Swamigal and force him to eat. Literally she will sit, even if it is two hours or three hours! Till he picks up the glass (of buttermilk) and puts a little in his mouth she will sit and pray to Annamalai Swamigal. Annamalai Swamigal is a great enlightened being. And he will never budge for anybody! But, somehow, I have seen, he never deprived her, denied her. He may wait for some time, half-an-hour or one hour; but he will not miss without accepting what she offers. And I have seen many times, I will take something, but he will never touch it; he will give it to others. He will not put it in his mouth. Rarely he will take it and put it in his mouth. Otherwise, he will give it to others. And I also will go there for what he gives! HAHAHAHA! He used to give a lot of candy; so I will go there, as a kid. But, this elderly lady, whatever may be the time, he will never deprive her, deny her. He will accept at least a little bit of what she brought. Read More

Throughout My life, I was, I am, I will be always authentically enriching, empowering people continuously.

When I am trying to expand on Upanishads, even I feel I am not using enough words! It is like it is not adequate. Saraswathi may be eloquent, but not adequate to translate the silence of Mahadeva. Translating the silence of Mahadeva, even Saraswathi feels inadequate! She may be eloquent in front of anything, but inadequate in front of Mahadeva’s silence. Upanishads are Mahadeva’s silence. Translating that into words! It is only by Mahadeva’s grace I can translate, translate, translate his silence into words and deliver, understand?

I was expanding on the concept of “nation” and “desha” (“देश” ). When decision-makers, whether in the field of business or ruling, when decision-makers are out of fear and greed, it is all about producing in mass and sharing with the world. When the decision-makers are caught in fear and greed, then it is all going to be about possessing and controlling. Wealth, handled with incompletion, will lead to possessiveness. Power, handled with incompletion, will become controlling. A powerless man, when he is given power, he will only be controlling. A poor man, when he is given wealth, he will only be possessing. A poor man does not even know how to live with wealth, I am telling you. He will just make a big godown, iron godown, a thick wall iron godown, put everything inside, and lock it, and sleep on it! That’s all! And die! Is this the purpose of wealth? And his whole life he will spend worrying, ‘Will anybody know what I am keeping under my bed? And will anybody steal it?’ A poverty-conscious man, even if he stumbles on wealth, he cannot live it. A poor man, incomplete man, even if he sees wealth, he is not going to enjoy it, live it. He may possess it, but he may not live it! Same way, a powerless man, frightened, fear-based person, even if he is given power, he will only be controlling it, he will not be expanding it. A person established in Completion, in the space of Completion, even if he does not have wealth, he knows how to create and live. A person based on Completion, even with the small powers which are available to him, he knows how to enrich people with power. Enriching people with power!

Completion-based lifestyle!

I am telling you, constantly empower yourself!

Constantly empower yourself!

Constantly empower yourself!

Have power and go on empowering people with power. And, I tell you, in which ever field you empower people, you will only become more and more powerful. Only by producing more musicians, you will become a great musician. Only by producing more dancers, you will become a great dancer! Only by producing more doctors, you will become a great doctor! Only by producing more rich people, you will become a richer person! Only by producing more leaders, you will be a great leader! Only by producing more enlightened beings, you will be an INCARNATION!
