When thousands worship you, why do you bow down so much in front of the deities?

Now let’s experience Kailaasa’s length, breadth, depth, time, space. 

Understand. This can happen only by the tremendous surrender to Mahasadasiva. You can’t enter into His home by any demand. No! No Aushadha can work. He’s not a serpent, you put some medicine and herb and He will listen to you. No. He’s Nageshwara, He’s not Naga.

Understand. It is deep surrender and devotion and reverence, humbleness requesting – Mahadeva, please grace us. Please grace us. It is only with the tremendous humbleness and surrender, with tremendous respect, reverence, devotion. Read More

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

Kena Upanishad’s shanti mantra, I was introducing yesterday’s satsang. Let’s recite the shanti mantra and enter into the understanding.

auṃ āpyāyantu mamāṇgāni vākprāṇaścakśuḥ śrotram-athobalam-indriyāṇi ca sarvāṇi |
sarvaṁ brahmopniṣadam mā’ham brahma nirākuryām mā mā brahma nirākarod-anirākaraṇamstva-nirākaraṇam me’stu |
tadātmani nirate ya upaniṣatsu dharmāste mayi santu te mayi santu ||
auṁ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ śāntiḥ ||

Two important truths I want you to learn. First, the Vedic way of living, Vedic lifestyle starts with peace, ends with peace. All the knowledge we generated, please understand, we had everything and much more what modern science has produced now. Whether it is jet plane, rocket, missiles, nuclear weapons, chemical weapons, we had everything and much more in Vedic age, Vedic era, but we were very clear – it’ll only be for peace, it’ll only be for peace. Understand, we start peace, end with peace; whether it is rituals, ceremonies, teaching, knowledge transmission, everything, everything, knowledge is only for peace.

Only one big crime the modern day Hindus did, they think – peace is important so let’s avoid conflicts. No! By avoiding conflict you will never be in peace. By avoiding conflict, if you try to be in peace, naturally the other forces will push you, push you, push you to the corner till you become non-existent. Avoiding the conflicts is not methodology for peace.Right methodology for peace, facing it, solving it.

Peace is the purpose, that does not mean that we are afraid of conflicts. Peace is the purpose, does not mean that we are afraid of conflicts. Peace is purpose, does not mean we are powerless to handle conflicts. That is one of the biggest crime the modern day Hindus did, trying to avoid conflicts to have peace. That is why modern day Hindus lost their backbone.

Peace is the purpose, but not avoiding the conflict, but by facing and resolving it.

Remember the right context of prayer – Soh’amasmi, and Pray. HE will give Himself to you.

Before entering into the next verse, I only wanted to add these few ideas. Please understand, whenever you pray….See prayer is the important component of our life especially if you are a seeker. Just like breathing, prayer becomes very important part of you. Prayer just becomes you! Prayer becomes important ‘You.’

Please understand the word I am uttering – Prayer becomes important YOU. I am not saying – to you, for you. Important YOU: means one part of you should become a prayer. Prayer is very important component, very important part of your life, especially if you are seeker. But, you always need to know the right context and understanding you need to hold during prayer. When you pray to a deity or Guru, have this context – I am praying to the Source where you and me are one and the same. I do not know whether that Source is here or there; because in the beginning when you are too much inside, the Source will be outside. Slowly, slowly when you start becoming lighter and lighter, the Source will move inside. Please understand, in the beginning when you are too much occupied inside, the Source where you and the Guru or God meeting, the source point will be outside. Because you are too much inside, how can that Source be here? But, slowly, slowly when you become lighter and lighter, more and more have completion, the Source moves inside.

So pray, “Oh the Source, where you and me are one and the same, I pray to you, you make this into reality.”

Whatever you want to say, say. In this way, you will never feel cheated. Understand, Guru will not give you what you want. Your stupid mind will try to make you feel – you have been cheated. It is like, I have seen in India, girls, the moment they become 19, just because father does not buy a cell phone for her, they develop a love affair with a boy who will gift a cell phone and run away, get married. They don’t live more than 1 or 2 years, divorce and come back. Please understand, I am not talking something exaggerated. I am talking something happening in villages. When she is depressed, that father is not giving her cell phone, that boy is using that depression to put himself as a hero into her. Once she feels he is hero, over. Understand, always the negative sources will try to show themselves as hero to you, when you feel you are not granted the boon you asked from Guru or God, whatever. Read More

Never be a beggar even in front of God because anything makes you beggar is not worthy to be entertained in your life!

At the age of 10, in Arunachaleshwara temple in the shrine, Sannidhi of Devi – Unnamalai Amman. I was standing in one corner, suddenly I saw the cosmic geometrical representation. That time I did not know the word, only now, later on I came to know, it is Sri Yantra in the golden, shining, absolute, energy light form. And then, Devi appeared in this very form She is gracing now with Lakshmi and Saraswati. When I had darshan I saw only Devi Bhuvaneshwari. Here she is gracing with Lakshmi and Saraswati. There, when I had darshan, I saw Her only this form – the Ankusha and Pasha and Abhaya and Varada. It’s just too much, too much. Slowly that very geometry and that form, both disappeared into My inner-space. Then I went back to home, carved the deity as I experienced in the stone, carved the Devi, the same way I saw in stone and carved that Sri Chakra the same way I saw in copper plate. This happened. You can see the yantra I carved after the darshan at the age of 10 and this is the deity of the Devi I carved a the age of 10. Actually this happened during Navaratri only. I do not know whether it happened exactly on the 4th day and 5th day and all that. But during the Navaratri time. 

Let me enter into the Upanishad. Ishavasya Upanishad. I was expanding continuously. Today I will continue to expand on 16th verse. Recite along with me.

pūṣann-ekarṣe yama sūrya prājāptya।  vyūha raśmin samūha।

tejo yat te rūpaṁ kalyāṇa-tamaṁ tat te paśyāmi yo’sāvasau puruṣaḥ so’ ham asmi ॥ 16॥ Read More
