In these verses, Kṛṣṇa beautifully explains what walking the talk means through His own example. He says there is nothing in the three worlds the nether world, earth or heaven, for Him to achieve. There is no duty that binds Him. Even though He has nothing to gain, lose or even to do, He is constantly engaged in action and enriching the three worlds. Why?
After Enlightenment, I came from the Himalayas to be amidst the people to enrich them with Enlightenment. I could have just stayed there happily and blissfully. But I have come here because of my responsibility to guide people with the right path of living Enlightenment.
Because people look up to Him as God, they would obviously follow the path He sets. People’s anyakāra, the expectation that world has from Kṛṣṇa is that He is God, He is Bhagavān. They would simply follow what He does. He is now responsible to fulfill even others’ image about Him for leading them on the correct path. That is Bhagavān Kṛṣṇa’s authenticity and responsibility!

When you fulfill the expectation of others, only then you realize that it is your own expectations that are fulfilled”
Until the age of thirteen, Raghupati Yogi prepared my body and mind to enter into and stay in the experience of enlightenment. Entering into the experience, having a glimpse of the no-mind state, having that experience of satori and unclutching is actually not very difficult. But to remain in the experience and more importantly, to express that energy though your body, both your body and mind needs to be prepared.
Yoga thus prepared my body for holding the ultimate energy of enlightenment.

You may wonder, ‘How is it that every day when I come back to the waking state, I see the same world but every night when I go back to the dream state, I don’t see the same world? This question forms the basis of your idea that the waking state is a permanent reality.
Let us analyze one night’s dream. For example, let us say that you go to sleep on the night of the fourteenth, and on the morning of the fifteenth, you wake up. You sleep for around ten hours. I am sure many of you have had experiences of having lived around ten to twenty years of your life in one night’s dream, in just ten hours. Perhaps the dream starts in your college days and moves slowly, step by step, up to your marriage, your having a son, your son’s marriage, etc. In this way, you live even twenty years of your life in just one night’s dream, am I right? If you have experienced this at least once, you can follow very closely what I am going to present now. Continue reading “A basic cognitive shift or a basic psychological revolution, with the simple understanding that what you are seeing may not be reality as you think, can bring tremendous inner healing inside you, can bring a great restful awareness inside you”
The more we meditate, the more our awareness increases, and the closer we move to the consciousness of the fourth or turiya state. Turiya itself means fourth. You cannot give an exact name to this state. It is known by many other names: samadhi, enlightenment, atmagnana, brahmagnana, nirvana, satori, to name some of them. They all denote the same state of consciousness. When this state starts penetrating and overlapping the waking and deep sleep states, we will see good health happening in the body, mind and being. We will start experiencing causeless bliss. Then our very state of being becomes meditative! Continue reading “The purpose of meditation itself is to bring the fourth state of turiya into our waking state and deep sleep state”
The person who has removed hypocrisy from his inner space will experience enlightenment.
Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, the enlightened master from India, says beautifully, ‘Integrating your inner chatter and your spoken words is enlightenment.’ He says, just integrate your inner chatter and the words that you utter. Let both of them be integrated and you are enlightened.
I tell you, to live in a body in which inner chatter and outer words are connected is heaven. Nothing else can give you more joy than living in a body where the inner chatter and the spoken words are integrated. It is just pure ecstasy! This constant ecstasy is what I call nithyananda or eternal bliss. If you can live inside a body in which the inner chatter and the spoken words are integrated, in tune, suddenly you will see that you are living inside a hollow bamboo. You are living with such a vast inner space! Continue reading “When an enlightened being does spiritual practices it is not just for him. It is to create the right formulas for the disciples, so that he can reproduce the same experience in them”
Living with the limitless continuum is enlightenment. The limitless continuum will happen when you relax from the identities you hold of yourself in the outer and inner worlds.
If you are settled in that limitless continuum and are able to be active, you are living enlightenment. If you are not able to settle down in it, but you had at least one experience of it, then you have experienced satori.
The basic thing needed for enlightenment is a ‘psychological revolution’, a new clarity about the self (jeeva), world (jagat), and god (Ishwara). Continue reading “The basic thing needed for enlightenment is a new clarity about the self (jeeva), world (jagat), and god (Ishwara)!”
This incident is from the days of my (Sri Paramahamsa Nithyananda Swamiji) spiritual journey before enlightenment. I was near a small village in North India, a place near Varanasi, the spiritual headquarters of Hindus. Hindus traditionally visit Varanasi at least … Continue reading Strongest experience that has happened in Sri Paramahamsa Nithyananda Swamiji’s life outside his body.

It is truth that Consciousness moves, and, at the same time, it is truth that Consciousness does not move. Truth that Consciousness is far off from the farthest space, the truth that Consciousness is also nearer than the nearest space. Truth is the inner space of the whole Cosmos. Truth is also the outer space of the whole Cosmos. Pervading an uniformly ever-present inside and encompassing this Cosmos from the outside, pervading an uniformly ever-present inside and encompassing this Cosmos from outside.
It is an amazing sutra! Please listen! What Upanishads want to declare through this verse: Break from something which is making you perceive “inside” “outside” separately, “moving” “unmoving” separately, “anthara” “baahyathah” separately.
Listen! Thadhejathi Thannaijathi (तदेजति तन्नैजति) – “moving” “unmoving” separately. What is that, that makes you perceive something as “moving”, something as “unmoving”? What is that, that makes you perceive something is “near”, something is “far off”. What is that, that makes you perceive something is “inside you”, and something is “outside you”?
