Samadhi

We have two levels of consciousness and two levels of thoughts.

In the waking state you have ‘I’ consciousness and thoughts, conscious state, called jagrat in Sanskrit.

In dreams you have thoughts but no ‘I’ consciousness. The frequency of thoughts is more than the frequency of ‘I’ consciousness. That is why in the dream state, called swapna in Sanskrit, you cannot control your dreams. The dreams will happen as they want. But in the waking state, you can control your thoughts.

In deep sleep you have neither ‘I’ consciousness nor thoughts, unconscious state, called sushupti in Sanskrit.

There is a fourth state which you have never experienced, what I call intuition or meditation. In this state, you have ‘I’ consciousness but no thoughts. There is no term in the domain of psychology to describe this state. In Sanskrit this state is called turiya. This is what I call meditation or intuition or thoughtless awareness. This state is also called the state of samadhi. If you can experience this zone, this fourth state, you can experience the consciousness, what I call beyond intellect. It is the state where there is bliss or peace or intuition. Read Full Article

Understand, for example, understand this example: A light, for example: Sun reflecting on the mirror. If the mirror is pure, mirror will reflect the sun as it is. The reflection inside the mirror feels it is sun itself. I will not say it is a crime. It is ok because there is no other damage done to the reflection because of the mirror. It is literally the pure reflection. But if the mirror is broken, the reflection cannot feel it is a pure reflection of the sun. It is a distorted reflection of the sun.

Listen, sun is there and the mirror is there. Sun is Sadashiva, the pure Super-consciousness. The mirror is the system you are carrying – physical, physiological, psychological all put together. The system you are carrying is the mirror. Sun is the pure consciousness, Sadashiva. If your system is not broken, the reflection feeling it is Sadashiva Himself is not wrong because there is no other component involved. You exist as sun exists. You don’t exist when the sun does not exist. If the sun moves, you move. The sun stays you stay. So, reflection in the pure mirror feeling it is Sadashiva Himself is neither wrong nor completely reality. Surely it is not reality. Only when the reflection goes back to the source it is one and the same. But reflection in the unbroken mirror feeling it is sun is not wrong. The reflection in the broken mirror cannot feel it is sun because the other components are involved. The other components are involved. Read Full Article

The Advaitha, please listen, Oneness becomes your reality with the Love Current of Mahadeva. Please understand, when you authentically experience Love Current of Mahadeva, the Oneness you experience will continue to keep you retain the juice of celebrating Mahadeva, understand? Today, I wanted to expand on some of the most subtle points.

यस्मिन् सर्वाणि भूतान्यात्मैवाभूद् विजानतः ।
तत्र को मॊहः कः शॊक एकत्वमनुपश्यतः ॥
Yasmin SarvaaNi Bhoothaani Aathmaivaabhoodh Vijaanathaha |
Tathra Ko Mohaha Kah Shoka Ekathvam Anupashyathaha ||

“In one who has cognized the reality, all existing beings become the very Self. Then what delusion, what sorrow of incompletion can there be for that Seer living in the space of Oneness, Living Advaitha?”

Listen! The Love Current of Mahadeva leads you to Oneness experience. After that, after the experience of Oneness, the way you live will be the Love Current of Mahadeva, understand? Love is not just a path for experiencing Oneness. After experience the Oneness, the utility value of life itself is Love. If you start practicing love now, meditating on Love Current of Mahadeva, you will experience Oneness, and after experiencing Oneness, the way you operate, the way you cognize, the way you move, the way you live, the way you exist, the whole thing will be same Love in a different dimension.

Always there is a conflict between Advaithis and Bhakthas. Always Advaithis declare these Bhakthas as “Leelavaadhis”: ‘All the time talking about devotion, devotion; they never experience the Oneness.’ And, always these Bhakthas go on criticizing these Advaithis as “Mayavaadhis”, delusionists: ‘They don’t celebrate devotion and love.’ And there is also a subtle deep fear that if you experience Oneness, you may lose the devotion; it may all become all “Me”, “Me”, “Me”, “Me”. From the side of devotees, they feel, ‘Oh, if we experience Oneness, it will all become “Me”, “Me”, “Me”. Devotion will be lost.’ From the Advaithis, ‘Oh, if I experience devotion, that is all! The state I am in, I may lose it! I will fall into duality!’ It is such a stupid misunderstanding! Read Full Article

Listen, the seventeenth verse of Isavasya Upanishad.

vāyur-anilam amṛtam athedaṁ bhasmāntagṁ śarīram |

auṁ krato smara kṛtagṁ smara krato smara kṛtagṁ smara || 17 || 

Listen, when you declare – “let my prāṇa become the prāṇa of the Cosmos, let my breathing pattern become one with that breathing pattern of the Cosmos” – your bio-memory will rest in the space of Completion.

Understand, all incompletion is tension, stress. All Completion is relaxation and restfulness. All Completion is relaxation. All incompletion is stress. Even in the work if you are stressed, I can give you 120% guarantee you are not going to do the work, because first being in the relaxed mood is the basic condition. Freedom is the basic condition for growth; restful awareness is the basic condition for anything to happen. Stressed means, you are confused; you are not clear what you are supposed to do. Completion is restful awareness, restful awareness is Completion. Restfulness, restfulness is not laziness. Please be very clear, I am not promoting your laziness. I am promoting restful awareness. When you decide  – “let my breathing pattern become one with the Cosmic breathing pattern” – your bio-memory will rest in the space of Completion.

Next very powerful technique:  bhasmāntagṁ śarīram |

Lie down in your bed, before you falling asleep, declare – “let my breathing pattern become one with the Cosmic breathing pattern” – that is, just declaration is enough.

The second part: bhasmāntagṁ śarīram | Read Full Article

I’ll continue to expand on The KatoUpanishad Santi Mantra, please recite along with m

Aum  Sahanā vavatu | saha nau Gunatthu | saha vīryam karvāvahai| tejasvi nāvadhītamastu mā vidviṣāvahai ||

auṁ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ

Understand, listen , I will read out the meaning, translation and then expand on it.

Aum, May we both together be protected, may we both be nourished and enriched, may we both bring our hands together and work with great strength, energy and enthusiasm. May our study and learning together illuminous both with the sharp absolute light of higher intelligence. So be it. May we both not have enmity or incompletion with each other. Let there be peace, peace, peace. Let there be peace in my inner space, peace in nature, peace in divine forces.

Listen.. The context of the Indian education system, how the education in vedic tradition existed, how it was happening . The other day I was reading letter to British parliament. He writes to British Parliament, I went all around this country, north to south, east to west, I have not found a single person who is lying, who is telling lies, I have not found a single beggar- understand, I have not found a single beggar, I have not found a single person lying, People are so fulfilled. I few want to rule this country, we have to break their back bones. Their strength , their education.. I will read out the exact letter..it is addressed febraury 2 nd, 1835,

I have travelled across the length and breath of India and I have not seen one person who is a beggar, who is the thief, such wealth I have seen in this country, such high moral values, people of such high caliber that I do not think that we would ever conquer the country unless we break the very back bone of the nation which is the Spiritual and cultural heritage and therefore I propose that we replace her old ancient education system , or if the Indians think that all that is foreign and English is good and greater than their own, lose their self esteem, their native culture, and they will become what we want them, truly dominated nation.

Understand, understand the strength of Indian education system. This was Macaulay’s address to the British Parliament on 2nd febraury 1835.

Anyhow, understand the value of Indian education system, what kind of human beings and society we produced. Listen.. Only when the education is producing the human beings of higher Consciousness, it can be called as education. Not just some skills or talent, set of skills and talent does not make you  educated, as i said, uneducated are those who are educated only in schools… uneducated are those who are educated only in schools.

Please understand, in any civilization, any culture, any country, any society, if there is peace, there is a lot research and development. Fortunately, we are the civilization naturally protected from all sides. Three sides ocean, one side large hills , mountains which can never be crossed with ordinary efforts of human beings. This natural protection gave a tremendous peace to this Ganges-Saraswathi civilization. Civilization between Saraswathi and Ganga,  that is why war was never a mainstream activity of Ganges Saraswathi civilization.

In any civilization, whatever they feel as their greatest achievement, mainstream life, lifestyle, they build monument for that purpose. If they think, waging war and killing people is their mainstream lifestyle and purpose, they built monuments of warriors, people who are , who lost their lives in the war, or people who won the wars, monuments are built, war memorials are built, monuments of the victorious kings are built. If they think whatever human beings think is their greatest achievement, essence of their society, they build monuments for it, so that the future will remember them through those monuments.

Please understand, that is why I am saying, the Ganges-Saraswathi civilization, the Indus valley civilization, the Hindu civilization, waging war was never a mainstream activity for us. It was always only for defense and self protection. You may ask, how, how I am coming to this conclusion. Look at the monuments we made through out the country, not even 2 percent, war memorial or the kings emerges victorious after war. 95 percent of the monuments we built are monuments for education, 3 percent is for great educators and teachers. Understand, all our Temples are not monuments of some war victory, it’s a place for education in memory of the great teachers and educators, it’s a Samadhi of Siddha’s, not monument f great kings, Only 2 percent is monument of great victorious kings or war memorials.98 percent is for education and  great educators , teachers. Understand all the temples are built for siddhas, great educators. Based on the monuments, you can understand, what was highly respected in that civilization, in that society.

I was also reading the Agama shastras , the science of building villages and cities, everything was centered on education, knowledge and teacher . That was really surprising….warriors were only a small part of a society, given a very small place of security job, that’s all, mostly their job is security job, or attending, serving during any natural calamity. That was their regular routine. I am not saying we never waged wars..we were , waged wars, no doubts,  that was not our mainstream life style activity. There was so much peace, so much of research, development, so much of knowledge , knowledge creation and spreading, so much exploration of space under the water, under the earth, into the fire, so much has been done, so much knowledge was available, even whatever is left out unimaginable, unmatched humanity may take at least take 5000 years to catch up with this vedic knowledge. To catch up with our education system, they may even take 10000 years.

Understand the statements that I am making are not out of ego, arrogance, self pride or anything. I am simply stating the facts,., simply stating the facts ,simple truths straight away. We put so much of attention on Arjuna becoming a greatest warrior and emerging out of Gurukul, but we forget , from the same Gurukul, Sahadeva emerges as the greatest astrologer in this war. A whole department of astrology was functioning in that same Gurukul. But, we were so glamoured by Arjuna emerging as the greatest Archer, Bheema emerging as the greatest wrestler, we forgot Sahadeva emerging as the greatest astrologer. Understand even to be a greatest archer, you need the knowledge from multiple other disciplines. If you see the monumets of a country, what we bulit, what we revered, what we respect, what we want to be, what we want to remember and  how we want to be remembered, what we want to remember, how we want to be remembered by our next generation.  All these aspirations were centered on education…..All these aspirations were centered on education. So much of knowledge on physical health, mental health, Consciousness, powers of consciousness,, so much was available. Our education system, our Gurukul system,   making human beings, should again become the mainstream education system…. Should again become the mainstream education system. Please Listen, When I read this Santi Mantra, I can see very clearly, the context of the Indian education system which was always towards higher and higher intelligence.

Sahanā vavatu | saha nau Gunatthu | saha vīryam karvāvahai

tejasvi nāvadhītamastu mā vidviṣāvahai || auṁ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ

May we both together be protected, may we both be nourished and enriched, may we both bring our hands together and work with great strength, energy and enthusiasm. May our study and learning together illuminous both with the sharp absolute of light of higher intelligence. So be it. May we both not have enmity or incompletion with each other. Let there be peace, peace, peace.

When ever I read this verse, again I fall in love with the education system, our Gurukul system. What a powerful beginning, where Teacher and Students together say, seethe context, no where Guru is claiming, I am going to teach you, you are the Student, nowhere , He is demanding obedience from the disciple, no where disciple is made to feel that he is new. Actually, there is no psychological ragging here. The ragging starts from the Teachers. Please understand, in any educational system, in any educational institution, ragging starts from Teachers. It’s the teacher ‘s who feel insecure about the new fresh vital energy coming inside, they want to make the statement, Ai.. you are there..(down) We are here..(up).  It is they, the way they behave, makes the senior students set a trend. Ragging starts from so called Professors, Teachers, Principals in any educational institution. They just want to illogically bulldoze and make a statement, be there…(down). Not even one aorta of ragging here, he says very beautifully, may our study and learning together. Because our masters know these Apoushyas, Vedas has multiple layers of meaning. Even if the Teacher is teaching Vedas for 50 years, 51st year when he opens the manuscripts again, when he opens the palm leaves again and reads the same line, he may click with a new meaning. Because he knows it is from Aakashic records. So he is teaching from that humbleness, May our study and learning together illuminous both , please understand, illuminous both with the sharp absolute light of higher intelligence, sharp absolute light of higher intelligence. I think the Teacher should have this pace, this context.

The Teacher should have this context, this space. Each one of this line introduces our education system and the context on which our system was evolved. Next statement, May we both not have enmity or incompletion with each other, because they are going to live together, understand, Guru and disciple are going to live together, so not having incompletion is very important. See , if you don’t live together, like this modern day, non involving narrative education system, where there is no living together, there is no involvement with each other, then the possibility of incompletion itself is not there. But when you live together, not to have incompletion is very important. Teacher can always establish his superiority and let disciple not have incompletion. But he is not doing it, this is, it’s very clear, please understand, by the authority you can never make somebody without Completion.

Only by your Authenticity you can make others Complete, never by authority, it is by Authenticity. Whether it take times, months, years, it’s only by the other person realizing the Teachers Authenticity, Guru’s Authenticity, he becomes Complete. Completion cannot be achieved by authority ,it’s only by Authenticity.

 

Yes, I am back to Kathopanishad. Today I am a little balanced to speak about anything else. But whenever I enter into Varanasi, at least 24 hours, I am so full of Varanasi. Even if I start speaking about something else I will be back to Varanasi. You see I can say, this city is a wonder. Made by man, supported by God. It’s a man-made wonder supported by God. All the Gods have supported this great wonder, Varanasi. It is older than any legends, because legends are written here. Legends were created here. This is the breeding ground for the great legends. Understand, whether it is Guru of Rama or Guru of Krishna; studied in this city. Whether it is Guru of Rama or Guru of Krishna, studied in this city.

All Gurukuls were head-quartered in this city. Naimisharanya or Sarvajnapeetha, or Takshashila; much later, Nalanda. All of them, were head-quartered here, in Varanasi. Because all those Masters who established those universities, all of them studied here. Directly at the feet of Mahadeva. Sapta Rishis, Sanakadi Rishis, Devi herself studied at the feet of Mahadeva, here in this sacred city, Varanasi. So, whenever I enter, my Being responds to this city. The city responding to my presence is so overwhelming. At least 24 hours I can’t speak about anything else. And this time it is too much because the day 1 the initiation is successful. The day 1 the initiation is successful. Because kids have already started reading. The day one, first day initiation. Please understand. The kids who came for Inner Awakening yesterday first time. Getting initiated, many of them have started blind fold reading. The third eye awakening has started happening. Without any fraud, cheating, or without any looking through the hole. So beautiful. The very day, day 1, the initiation has started becoming reality. Read Full Article

Those who worship avidyā, the ignorance that veils the true knowledge of truth, Consciousness, enter into blinding darkness, but into greater darkness of ignorance than that enter they who, considering themselves as learned, are engaged in vidyā, the incomplete knowledge acquired for vested interests, characterized by impure truth about Consciousness.

Listen. I will explain step by step. Listen. I will explain the key point in this verse directly: now all of you have done Vaakyartha Sadas for last so many days, what is Consciousness? What is All-pervasiveness? What is without coming and going? What is muscle-less, woundless, all these you would have done. At one point, you will feel stuck, it is natural. At that moment, if you decide, “it’s ok, but I will continue to dig”, you are Living Enlightenment. At that moment, you think, “ah, whatever I learned, with that, let me make whatever I need in life, like comforts, name and fame, who knows, leave it,” then, that is avidya.

When your brain associates itself with Consciousness as That itself, it will start cognizing, taking actions, decisions, everything based on That. Literally your whole brain will lit up; your whole heart will lit up; your whole body will lit up! Maybe that is why it is called Enlightenment! The whole thing will be lit up! Read Full Article

We will enter into the Ishavasya Upanishad, third shloka:

असुर्या नाम ते लोका अन्धेन तमसाऽऽवृताः । ताँस्ते प्रेत्याभिगच्छन्ति ये के चात्महनो जनाः ॥

Asurya naamathey lokaa andhena thamasaavruthaah | Thaagumsthey prethyabhigachchanthi ye ke chaathmahano janaah ||

I will expand on how, saying “NO”, impacts you and others, and how, saying “YES”, inspires you and others. 

Listen!  Always, “NO” to life is said out of ignorance.  Always, “NO” to life is said out of ignorance, unconsciously.

  Listen!  Whether it is an individual level, or level of social leader, political leader, or decision-maker, any level…. 

I hear in the newspapers, in the Internet, again and again, the various scams at the level of decision-makers in various countries.  The politicians or the bureaucrats, just for the sake of the bribe they get, they are compromising the health of the common man.  The second quality, not THE very best things, is made available to the common man just because some money they get as bribe.  Whether it is in the field of pharmaceutical drugs, or even in the field of food industry, THE best is not made available to human-beings, common mass; the quality is reduced.  Sometimes even dangerous, risky things are done; sometimes, knowingly, dangerous things are done by paying some bribe to the bureaucrats or politicians or officials.  They also, just for the sake of that money, accept the money and allow this.  These are all “saying NO to life”.  Listen!  But, unfortunately, this stupid fellow who accepts the money, he also does not enjoy.  He stores it, stashes it in some tax haven in some remote island, which he never enjoys till his death.  So, for something which he is never going to enjoy, he is saying “NO” to so many people’s lives, understand?  Read Full Article

I will continue on the Ishavasya Upanishad sixth verse.

यस्तु सर्वाणि भूतान्यात्मन्यॆवानुपश्यति ।
सर्वभूतॆषु चात्मानं ततॊ न विजुगुप्सतॆ ॥
Yasthu Sarvaani Bhoothaani Aathmanyeva Anupashyathi |
Sarva Bhootheshu Cha Aathmaanam Thatho Na Vijugupsathe ||

Listen!

“One who, indeed, lives by seeing as it is the whole Existence, all un-manifest and 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 the Consciousness.”

Listen! Today, I am taking completely a different route for you to experience this truth. If you think this stone is too big, based on this stone you will compare everything else. ‘Oh, that stone is smaller than this. That stone is equivalent to this. This stone is a little bigger than this.’ So, based on the stone which attracted your attention due to its qualities, based on that you will compare all other stones, everything around it, and try to grasp, understand. That is what exactly you are doing in your life. You try to gauge, study, cognize, understand everything, based on the idea “I”, “Aham”. The “I” is the most heaviest thing which you perceive in your life. You are literally in love with it! Understand? The “I”, which you perceive, the “I” which you experience the moment you wake up, till the moment you fall into deep sleep, even after that in the dreams, sometimes even in the deep sleep, the “I” which you are perceiving, experiencing, you feel it is so HEAVY, so IMPORTANT, so GLORIOUS! Because, only with that, the support of that, and its existence, you are able to perceive and enjoy, have all the moments, and able to relate with Existence. Read Full Article

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 Full Article

Please understand, whenever my teachers wanted to teach subtle concepts…..  I should not use the word “teacher”; I should use the word “Masters”.  I wanted to complete and change the word to “Masters”.  Whenever my Masters wanted to teach me the subtle concepts, they will put me on herbal diet.  They will give me the “Arugampull” (அருகம்புல்).  I don’t know the English name for that grass.  It is a unique grass which grows near the water ponds, which is used for worshipping Ganesha.  So, they will give that juice.  Sometimes the Bael juice, Vilwa (Aegle marmelos, commonly known as bael, golden apple, stone apple, wood apple).  Sometimes Bermuda Grass.  The “Arugampulls” English name is “Bermuda Grass”.  They will give me the Bermuda Grass juice and Bael juice.  Sometimes Neem juice.  And, they will cook pineapple fruit in the night, and they will take the juice in the morning and process it with some traditional herbs and give.  This kind of a juice diet they will put me.  Of course, I enjoyed everything other than Neem juice.  HAHAHAHAHA!  They will put me on the juice diet sometimes even for one month!  I used to wonder why the teaching, means learning of Vedantha, should go with this kind of herbal diet.  One day, I asked them also.  Then they said, ‘Alright, you eat whatever you want and come back.’  And, as usual, in those days, the big feast means that “Vadai” and “Paayasam”  (Vadai = a fried snack.  Paayasam = a semi-liquid sweet dish).  That is the traditional feast.  I went and had all the traditional feast and came back.  They tried to explain some of the concepts, truths of Vedantha.  I tell you honestly, I was not able to grasp!  Then they gave me Gingelly Oil (Sesame Oil) and cleaned my stomach, and Haritaki Powder for two days.  After two-three days, again they started teaching me the concepts.  I was just like that able to grasp!  Then I understood the power of that food and that sutra which says, ‘Aahaara Shuddhi….’:  “Based on the purity of food, your intellect gets purified, your memory gets purified, your ability to grasp increases.” Read Full Article

I can very clear say, ‘YES!  Organ donation is perfectly accepted, supported, because, it is again “saying YES to life”.’ 

Please understand, only an enlightened body should not be touched, disturbed.  After they leave the body, it should be preserved as it is, through the proper Vedic way of mummifying, the Jeeva Samadhi process as described by Thirumoolar

Thirumoolar is Mahadeva using the body of a farmer who was taking care of his cows, who was bitten by a snake and died.  And all his cows were standing around him and crying.  The story says, there was a divine being going above the sky and saw the scene and decided to enter into that farmer’s body just to remove the sufferings of the cows.  I am telling you from my own authority, who can feel so compassionate for “pashu” (cattle)?  Only the Pashupathi (Lord of all Pashus –  Mahadeva) can feel so compassionate for “pashus”, and only Pashupathi can feel the sufferings of “pashus”.  He was only moving!  And, he only assumed the body of Thirumoolar and came back to life!  And, he describes the whole science beautifully, the Vedic way of mummifying the body, Jeeva Samadhi. 

Only the enlightened beings’ bodies should be properly preserved and Jeeva Samadhi should be done.  Other than that, any person, any normal person can write a Will to donate his organs.  And organ donation is accepted, and it is one of the best ways to say “YES” to life!  “YES” to life!
