Your own Existential experience is only one, your ātman, self. Everything else is your perceptional experience. If you remember in the dream, is this perceptional reality or existential reality?, you will wake up. In the waking state, if you remember, is this perceptional reality or existential reality?, you will be awakened.

Kenopanishad. The sacred secrets revealed in the Kenopanishad.  The 3rd and 4th mantra in the second khanḍaḥ of Kenopanishad.

yasyāmataṁ tasya mataṁ  mataṁ yasya na veda saḥ
avijñātam vijānatāṁ vijñātmavijānatām || 3||

The 4th verse recite along with Me:

pratibodhaviditaṁ matamamṛtatvaṁ hi vindate
ātmanā vindate vīryaṁ  vidyayā vindate ‘mṛtam || 4 ||

I’ll read out the translation for the 3rd and 4th verse, then reveal the sacred secrets.

He by whom, It is not known, to him It is known and experienced; he by whom, it is Known, to him, It is not known or perceived. It is unknown to those, who think they know It well and known to those, who know It not.

The 4th Verse:

It is truly known, when the Self is consciously cognized and subjectively known to oneself in each state of Consciousness with every modification of the mind and intellect. Through such complete, matured cognition of the Pure Self is attained immortality, amṛtatvam —existence in one’s own Self. By Ātman, the Pure Self is attained real strength, the space of powerfulness. And by Vidyā, Complete Knowledge of the Self is experienced Immortality, which is the true nature of Ātman.

Why you should be always blissful, why you should be with and in Nithyaananda ?

Today the important truth I wanted to share with all of you, especially preparing all of you for Sadashivoham2016. The science of bliss, understand, just yesterday, I was sharing with few of My Aadhenavasis. I have made few people as Chief Integrity Officer – CIO. I was revealing some of the important truths about the Integrity. Listen. Actually, if somebody has eyes, do you need to tell them ‘Hey, 3 feet pit is there on the right side of the road. 4 feet stone is sitting in the left side of the road. And outside the gate fire is burning on the street, somebody has put the Tyre and they’re burning, so take left turn. Then after some time, one big cobra is lying down so go right side.’ No. If somebody has eyes, they will manage all this. You don’t need to tell everything.

Understand, Integrity also is a simple vision of Reality. Why it looks so complicated you know? Your brain gets covered with the thin subtle layer of pitta, which puts you in certain delusion, constantly makes you believe your assumptions, assumed fears, as a part of your Reality. Listen. Listen to this word carefully. If you have used the virtual reality equipment, you can understand. First when you put it, it looks like externally something has been put. After a half hour or one hour you forget something is on you and you just become one with it. Same way, when your brain is covered by a thin, very subtle layer of pitta, certain amount of sadness and withdrawal, frustration, powerlessness, lower frequency of existence, becomes your functioning style. Only there, because you feel so powerless, you think let me do anything and manage the situation.

It is like your house is on fire, your dad is in the office, he comes to know and he screams at you through the phone, ‘Where is the house key, first take it.’ And you receive that instruction; you run and search all around and just get the house key and come back and stand outside and let the house burn!!! And then you come and tell me, ‘No you told me where is the house key and I’m having it’. Read More

Extreme harshness of reality or extreme pleasantness of reality leads to your awakening!

Before entering into the verse, I want to explain some basic truth about Seeking, which is explained in these verses.

See if I explain the basic concepts, the truth expressed in this verse will be more experiential for all of you. When you are tired of dreaming or you can’t handle dreaming anymore, you decide to wake up. If there is a nightmare, if there is a fantasy dream, where the dream becomes too sweet, or too harsh to handle, then you wake up. Same way, the waking state, if you make it too sweet or too harsh, you will become awakened.

Making it too harsh, becoming awakened, is the lifestyle of renunciation.

Making it too sweet and waking up, is lifestyle of devotion.

Listen, I will repeat. In the dream state, if you see two tigers are chasing you or two snakes are chasing you. If it’s harsh to handle, you will wake up. Same way, if it is too fantastic, exactly the same place you always want it to be is there, the same person with whom you want to be is there, you will suddenly wake up. If it is too sweet, you will wake up, too harsh, you will wake up. So that dream state is sustained in the struggle, not in the extreme, listen, only in the struggle, the dream continues, not in the extreme. 

Same way, in the waking state, if it is extreme sweetness, you will wake up or extreme harshness, you will wake up. But as long as there is a struggle between these two, the struggle between the extreme sweetness and harshness, greed and fear is what your incompletions. As long as there is a struggle you will continue to maintain this waking state. This state you will continue to maintain. If any one takes over, it’s all over.

Allowing the lifestyle of extreme harshness and awakening, getting awakened is the lifestyle of renunciation, A Naga, Aghori. Allowing the extreme sweetness and awakening is the lifestyle of devotion, a Shaivite. Using both of process and getting awakened is the lifestyle of Nithyanandite.

I use all available, possible methods, process, kriyas to help you into awakening whether it is nightmare or fantasy dream, you will wake up. You will wake up. You will wake up.

Understand, neither fantasy dream nor nightmare will let you continue sleep. Same way, neither extreme harshness nor the extreme sweetness will help you to continue your waking state. It will lead to awakening, it will lead to awakening.

I tell you, if life itself brings the harshness and awakens you, if life itself brings that sweetness and awakens you, you will be wasting a lot of time. You voluntarily getting into that state, cooperating for your awakening is what I call Seeking. It is not that every night you wake up with the nightmare or fantasy dream. Many nights you wake up because you are too tired. 

Understand, same way in your life also, it is not that all the time you can get the extreme harsh dream, harsh reality or extreme pleasant reality. Creating either extreme harshness of reality or extreme pleasantness of reality leads to your awakening. Cooperating with the life to create the extreme harshness or extreme pleasantness is Seeking.

Either with the concept of Shiva you can make every moment of your life extremely pleasant. You know this is the place Sadashiva walked, this is the very air He breathed, this is the very forest He and Devi spent so much of time. Every tree here is the descendent of the trees which had the fortune of having darshan of Sadashiva. Still the moon and the sun is a living witnesses. You can go on cherishing this and get into the extreme pleasantness that will lead to awakening or you can deny everything including your own existence and that will lead to extreme harshness, again you will be awakened.

Use any one, cooperate with any one. Allow the awakening to happen. That’s all is essence of life. That’s all is essence of life. 

Your self-doubt, self-hatred, self-denial neither allows you to experience extreme harshness or extreme pleasantness.If you go through pleasantness, you doubt it. “No, no, no. This cannot be permanent or eternal.” If you go through harshness, you build a hope, “No, no. I will get out of it and I will have pleasantness, joy one day.” The hope stops you going through the extreme harshness. Doubt stops you going through the extreme pleasantness. When you don’t allow both, continue to enjoy your struggling state, incompletion; because only that will maintain your ordinary waking state. 

Sleep is the base material out of which the dreams can be dream. Confusion is the base material out of which this waking state can be perceived. Only when you are in the state of sleep, you can dream. Only when you are in the state of confusion, you can see this waking state. 

Understand, that is why confusion is very precious investment for you. It is one of the most precious investment. Most precious investment! But I tell you, let confusion not become your most precious investment. In every step, every line, every inch of your life, if confusion becomes your basic stand, basic foundation, then imagine the amount of time you are wasting, energy you are destroying.

There is a beautiful verse in the Taitirriya Upanishad:

anando brahmeti vyajānāt (3.6) 

Bliss is God, don’t waste it. 

You may think, what do they mean by don’t waste it. Don’t waste it by attributing it to your confusion. If you think confusion is bliss, if you maintain the stand that confusion is bliss, you are wasting your life, destroying your life. You are wasting the bliss, destroying bliss. anando brahmeti vyajānāt. 

See your day-to-day habits get recorded in your muscle memory. Your lifestyle patterns, like what you feel about you, all that, gets recorded in your bio-memory. Cleaning up your muscle memory can be done by building good habits, nut cleaning up your bio-memory – what do you feel about you consciously, can be done only by awakening the Seeking. Awakening the seeking. 

Listen carefully to this statement, to this truth. Seeking either leads you into extreme pleasantness or extreme harshness of the Reality. In both ways, it awakens you. Whether you get into completing your individual existence or whether you get into expanding your individual existence into cosmic existence.

If your individual existence becoming cosmic existence by devotion it is called Upāsanā. If your individual existence becomes nothing by allowing the cosmic existence, it is called Vipāssanā. In both extreme, you are awakened. Whether Upāsanā or Vipāssanā, you will be awakened. But go through any one extreme, only then, you will be awakened. Don’t continue to play in the field of confusion you will continue to be just in this dilemma – waking state. Dilemma destroys your dignity; takes away your respect for yourself. Dilemma destroys your dignity; takes away your respect for yourself.

 

First and foremost commandment of Hinduism is THOU SHALL NOT DIE!

There is so much of powerlessness, powerlessness based focus on Death. But, if you turn your attention on dying, the powerlessness will be removed from Death. If you are waiting for Death to stare at you, you are waiting for powerlessness to overpower you. If you are staring at Him, when He is staring at somebody else, you are removing the powerlessness from Death. Understand, as a Hindu Incarnation, authority on Hindu tradition, Upanishad, and the Hindu way of living and Hindu goals, Hindu ambitions, I tell you, first and foremost commandment of Hinduism is THOU SHALL NOT DIE.

Do what it takes. Do what it takes. THOU SHALL NOT DIE—that is the first and foremost commandment for Hindus. Fools are those who die, stupid are those who plan for liberation after death, Hypocrites are those who never look into the eyes of death while living. Criminals are those who are diverting others attention also from the Death by stupid, shallow, shady lifestyles. Any lifestyle which is trying to divert your attention from looking into the eyes of Death and ability to go beyond the death, that life is shady, shallow, stupid, hypocritical, blind. Criminals are those who are promoting those lifestyles and diverting your attention from the original need of life, going beyond death. Read More

Everything exists in me and I exist in everything!

यस्तु सर्वाणि भूतान्यात्मन्यॆवानुपश्यति ।

सर्वभूतॆषु चात्मानं ततॊ न विजुगुप्सतॆ ॥

Yasthu Sarvaani Bhoothaani Aathmanyeva Anupashyathi |

Sarva Bhootheshu Cha Aathmaanam Thatho Na Vijugupsathe ||

 If you find, ‘I am away from body and mind, and everything is there, and that everything is here, this is everywhere’, that is a Brahmanical way of realizing.  But if you understand, ‘Everything is in me, and I am in everything, and I will know how to alter and change, do what I have to do’, that is the way of realization of Shaivites, understand?

Listen!  I will repeat.  There are two logic, two ways you can realize that you exist in everything and everything exists in you.

One: The moment fear and greed happens, you understand, ‘After all I am not this body and mind.  I will be away.  So, I exist in everything, that exists in me.  Whatever happens, happens.’  This is the Brahmanical way.  This is the Brahmanical interpretation of this verse.  That is the way this verse is made practical in Brahmanical thinking. 

There is another thinking trend: Read More

Romance with the life, not because it is your other half, because it is you.

Let us enter into the sixth verse.  

यस्तु सर्वाणि भूतान्यात्मन्यॆवानुपश्यति ।

सर्वभूतॆषु चात्मानं ततॊ न विजुगुप्सतॆ ॥

Yasthu Sarvaani Bhoothaani Aathmanyeva Anupashyathi |

Sarva Bhootheshu Cha Aathmaanam Thatho Na Vijugupsathe ||

 Yes!

One who, indeed, lives by seeing as it is the whole Existence existing in the Consciousness, the Self itself, and the Consciousness existing in the whole Existence, by virtue of not seeing oneself as separate from the Consciousness, does not feel violated or hates anything existing.

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

So the concept you have about you plays a very important, major role, in the way you live, the way you exist.

Understand, I am not searching for my other half, because I am not half!  I am already full!  I am complete!  So, what you experience about you, that decides your attitude about life, understand?  If you feel there is something other than you existing, you may have fear, or, feeling.  If you think the other part will complete you, you will have feeling, romance.  If you have an ounce of romance in the room, everything will be cleared, then fear will start happening; that’s all.

One small Ganesha gifted at the age of 3 is causing the revival of the whole Sanatana Hindu Dharma!

This whole revival of deity worship, Sanatana Hindu Dharma, which I am doing, started just with one small Ganesha gifted to me when I was the age of three.  If that same Ganesha was gifted to me, or even bigger Ganesha, when I was eighteen, I don’t think this revival would have happened.  Just that one Ganesha at the age of three got into my very bio-memory, became experience!  That is why I could transmit that experience to tons and tons of people, and this whole Sanatana Dharma is revived!

Just yesterday, one participant, yesterday or day-before-yesterday, few days, one participant in Inner Awakening, when she came and said, ‘Swamiji, It is so sweet to talk to deities and relate with them!  I saw them blessing me, relating back to me, responding to me!’,

I said, ‘Wow!  I have done my job!’

They are not dead statues; they are living deities! Read More
