Realize the internal changing reality and let it grab or swallow the external changing world, then nothing will touch you.

Understand the change that is happening and consume the change through the change. You will find the ultimate unchanging consciousness.

You are constantly changing eternal energy. Let you consume the constantly changing external world. Let the changing internal world swallow the changing external world. Let the chaos swallow the chaos. Let the chaos be covered by chaos. Let the chaos be filled by chaos. Become centered in the peaceful, deep, restful awareness. Read More

Meditation technique for Global Peace

The way to achieve global peace is to create individual peace. The meditation for global peace is a collective meditation. This is a very simple but very powerful meditation. Sit in one circle or concentric circles, holding hands so that you hold the hand of the person on your right with your right hand palm facing down, signifying ‘giving’ peace and bliss, while you offer your left hand palm facing up to ‘receive’ peace and bliss from the person on your left. This connected circle of people generates a powerful energy cycle. The meditative energy of one person is shared by all others. This meditation can be done for at least 21 minutes.

H.D.H Paramahamsa Bhagawan Sri Nithyananda Paramashivam’s advent on planet earth is to create a new cycle of individual consciousness causing Collective Consciousness to enter the Superconscious zone

Enlightened beings are untouched by the qualities, good or bad that they come in contact with. Their presence is so intense that everybody and everything is touched by the love and compassion that is their very nature.

A story from the life of enlightened master Buddha:

There was a bandit by the name of Angulimala. He used to live in a forest that many people had to cross. He used to ambush the people and rob them of their valuables. Then he would cut off the little finger of the person and make a garland of all the fingers. That is why he was called Angulimala or garland of fingers. Once when traveling, Buddha was about to cross the forest. People warned him about the terrifying Angulimala.

But Buddha was unperturbed and continued walking. Deep inside the forest, Angulimala jumped out of the bushes and shouted threateningly at Buddha, ‘Stand still!’ Buddha stopped and replied, ‘I am still. May you be still.’ Angulimala for the first time in his life was shaken to his very being. Something about Buddha touched him deeply. He could not even force himself to attack Buddha. His hands froze. He just fell at the feet of Buddha crying and begging for forgiveness! Read More

The collective consciousness is raised in a much more powerful way when meditation is done as a group!

Much of what is happening around us is the result of all our past actions. At least in this present moment, let us create more and more positive consciousness and energy so that we will avoid the same challenges and calamities in the future. If we get agitated and disturbed, then we will create more violence and negativity in our efforts to try to stop the existing violence. Violence cannot stop violence. Blood cannot wash away blood.

Buddha says beautifully that if we start thinking in the line of ‘an eye for an eye’, the whole world will become blind! If we start working with the logic of ‘an eye for an eye’, then a person from this group will take an eye from a person in the other group, and a person from that group will take an eye from a person in this group. Then the whole world will become blind!

The only thing you can do is start creating more and more positive and peaceful ambience inside your being, and continuously work to create peace and love outside your field. That is the only possible solution.

Give the intelligence to others to make better choices, that is the real help you can give

Realize that all leaders are channels of the collective positivity or negativity created by the masses

First, we have to understand that every major decision taken at the higher level of power and governance is an expression of collective positivity or collective negativity, because it is the mass consciousness or collective consciousness that creates the leaders. So before blaming others like leaders, politicians, or officials, if we can put a little bit of energy towards ourselves and start working to create more positive consciousness in our inner space, we will be doing something really useful.

Peace needs to be brought into the individual’s heart. Then it will radiate like the fragrance of a flower and transform the whole planet earth.

There are two ways to handle anything.

One is just talking about things and the other is actually doing things. If you are interested in just talking about things, then you will blame everybody around you, starting from your neighbor to the politicians, business and world leaders. Blaming and criticizing everybody is not going to be directly useful. Not only that, it will really pull down your own energy. This is one common, but ineffective way of working. Read More

An individual’s inner satisfaction, increase in awareness, creativity, and intelligence will automatically lead to global peace, prosperity and harmony.

A beautiful story from the life of Buddha:

Devadatta, a cousin of Buddha, joined Buddha’s order of monks. He was hungry for power and status. He wanted to become the head of the order of monks. But Buddha would not allow such an immature person, who was running after status instead of enlightenment, to lead his mission. So Devadatta harbored jealousy and ill feelings towards Buddha and even made several attempts to kill him.

Once Devadatta persuaded the royal elephant-keepers to release a fierce elephant on to Buddha’s path. The elephant was intoxicated and let loose on the streets where Buddha used to walk regularly. The mad elephant ran wildly. People panicked and fled in all directions. The elephant came upon Buddha.

Buddha kept walking, radiating the same peace and calm even in the face of this danger. His bliss and peace was not at all affected by the threat of the wild elephant. The elephant came rushing towards Buddha in a mad fury.

Once it reached Buddha, it immediately calmed down completely. Its wild nature simply dissolved in Buddha’s enlightened presence. Buddha touched the elephant’s forehead and stroked it gently. Calmed by the patting, the elephant bent on its knees and bowed down to Buddha. The people watching the whole scene were simply shocked! Read More

My mission is to create a peaceful, joyful, blissful, conscious, enlightened society.

When we realize our role in the Existential scheme of things, we can no longer feel separate from all those around us. We can only feel separated when we feel unconscious of our role, when we are unaware. The time has come to create a critical mass of enlightened people on planet earth. Only by creating more and more people who are awakened, who are enlightened, can the collective influence of individual negativity be destroyed. All calamities around the world are created only by unconscious human beings. Global warming, HIV, religious terrorism, fanaticism, and piles of atomic weapons, are all because of this negativity. Today, we are facing so many dangers, that unless we create a peaceful, blissful, joyful, and enlightened society, we will not be able to preserve this beautiful planet earth. My mission is to create a peaceful, joyful, blissful, conscious, enlightened society.

Actually, a majority of us are caught up in fighting with our own selves. We are caught in a web of self-contradictory thoughts and desires. Our thoughts and words are so powerful, but we use them so casually. For example, say you have a headache, what do you do? You tell yourself, ‘How I wish this headache would go away!’ You don’t realize that each of these words carries the power of desire and actualization within them. By uttering these words, you give as much power to the word ‘headache’ as you give to the words ‘go away’. This is what I mean by self-contradictory thoughts. By your very thought, you contradict your original desire. Even your positive intention is caught in the fight, the dilemma of your own thoughts and words. The nature of the mind is dilemma. You will then ask, ‘How do I get rid of this headache?’ Just say, ‘Let me be healed!’ that’s all. The mind is so used to thinking only negative words, that is the problem. Our self-contradictory thoughts are the root cause of all our suffering.

All our suffering arises from our ignorance of the truth that we are, by nature, bliss. We are a part of Existence, which is by nature bliss. Once we intellectually and experientially understand this, we will consciously and strongly see our self-contradictory thoughts being replaced by self-healing thoughts. When we infuse healing thoughts into our system again and again, we give power to positive words and thoughts. They get embedded in our very muscle memory. So at times of low mood and depression, these healing thoughts will automatically come up in our inner space and pull us out of the low mood. On our own, we can raise ourselves up from our low feelings and the negative play of the mind.

If you WILL no one can deny it, even God cannot deny it, because your Will is bestowed on you by God!

Isavasya Upanishad, the prayer is taken to the next level, you are taught; soham’asmi – even when I am praying, you and me are from the same Source, oh Source make what I want as a reality. 

Now the Kena Upanishad is taking it to the next level, declaration not prayer – me, my ability to will.

Understand, just like you have various abilities; the ability to see, ability to use your hands, ability to use your legs, ability to listen, ability to think, you have something called the ABILITY TO WILL.

The ability to will integrates all of your abilities. The ability to will is the spiritual umbilical cord, connection with Cosmos.

Understand, other than God, no one can will. When we are told only God’s will be done, means actually no one else can have WILL. Only God can have WILL. If you are having the power to will, you are connected to God, you are part of God, you are Him. Understand.

The power to will is umbilical connection with God. Our umbilical connection with God is our power to will.

If you WILL no one can deny it, even God cannot deny it, because your will is bestowed on you by God. The Upanishad does not say, “ Oh Brahman, let all my energies be awakened”, no! It does not say, “Oh Sadashiva, let all my energies be awakened”, no. Read More

May my limbs, speech, vital life-energy, eyes, ears, and all the senses be fully matured and be enriched with strength and energy!

Paramahamsa Nithyananda intercepts into the first part of Shanti Mantra, which is chanted before the Kena Upanishad, in this Nithya Satsang as on 29th June 2016, live from Varanasi. This glorious declaration by the Upanishadic Rishis is the ‘declaration of WILL”” forming the science of WILL. His Holiness reveals that the one core truth that the whole Hindu tradition accepts indisputably, be they from the Shakta, Shaiva, Kaumara, Ganapatya, Saurya, Jain, Buddha traditions or any of the 6 Darshanas of Hinduism is the sacred sound – AUM, the cosmic vibration and the sacredness of ‘cows’. This Shanti Mantra or peace invocation begins with AUM, and makes a declaration of WILL, which fully integrates us and enriches (āpyāyantu) with MATURITY, STRENGTH, ENERGY.

Swamiji enters into the deeper meanings of this verse with the essence of MATURITY.

HE defines: Maturity means being integrated to your WILL.

Maturity does not mean you become handicapped; you become filled with strength and energy. Revealing the sacred moments from his childhood, He narrates how He had tuned Himself to the Sannyasa life at age 6 by declaring to His Guru and integrating his whole system which became matured to the decision of Sannyasa. Shanti Mantra

aum āpyāyantu mamāṇgāni vākprāṇaścakśuḥ śrotram-athobalam-indriyāṇi ca sarvāṇi |

Aum. May my limbs, speech, vital life-energy (prāṇa), eyes, ears, and all the senses be fully matured and be enriched with strength and energy

Only when the education is producing the human beings of higher Consciousness, it can be called as education.

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.

 

Uneducated are those who are educated only in schools.

I will continue to expand on the Shanti Mantra of Kathopanishad. Please recite along with me.

auṁ saha nāvavatu | saha nau bhunaktu | saha vīryam karvāvahai |
tejasvi nāvadhītamastu mā vidviṣāvahai ||
auṁ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ ||

Please listen, and repeat once more:

auṁ saha nāvavatu | saha nau bhunaktu | saha vīryam karvāvahai |
tejasvi nāvadhītamastu mā vidviṣāvahai ||
auṁ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ ||

This Shanti Mantra introduces the context of Vedic education system. Education, is nothing but awakening your possibility into reality. Please listen, making your possibility into reality is education. I am defining Education. Awakening your possibility into reality, making your possibility into reality is education. All education should be making your possibility into reality. The Indian way of education is not non-involvement narrative style where the student and the teacher don’t get involved more than the few hours of narration where the teacher narrates – 2 + 2 = 4; you have to live boldly and courageously. After 4:30, school is over, this fellow will be shivering like a rat, so students don’t get to see the example of teachers. Read More
