The difference between ordinary frustration and Buddha’s frustration was he was complete and intense in his frustration as well

In Bengal, there is a particular group of people who believe that Krishna is the only man and those who follow him are all women no matter what gender they physically are. They look to Krishna as their beloved. They feel so intensely about this relation that even the men dress like women. The enlightened mystic from Bengal, Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, followed this path also for six months. The hallmark of this great master, Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, was that whatever he did, it was with totality and intensity. He used the same clothes as women not only at night, but also during the day because he felt he could not be one person during the day and another during the night. You may be shocked to hear this but he actually started becoming a woman. It was not being like a woman, it was being a woman. His voice changed, his gait and manner of walking changed. The intensity was such his breasts started growing. He even started having monthly periods! During the six months he was doing this practice, he just became a woman. It took almost six months after he stopped for the change to reverse and for him to become a man again. Read More

What happens when you leave the body in the presence of an Avatar ?

After my enlightenment, I came back to South India. I was in Bangalore in a devotee’s house, healing people who sought me out. At that time, a devotee was admitted in the ICU and I was requested to heal him. There again, while healing, the person in the bed next to the devotee started dying! The moment I saw that the person was about to die, the first thing I felt like doing was to move away from the suffering that was about to come! But the devotee was afraid and not ready to leave me!

Suddenly I saw that this person who was dying, was not going through any suffering like the earlier person. I was shocked, and I became very curious. Earlier, the movement of the individual soul from layer to layer was great suffering and torture for it. But this soul was moving so smoothly from layer to layer just like how a knife moves through butter, or how a snowball rolls down!

In the first layer or physical body, there was a little pain. Then suddenly the pain disappeared and the individual soul moved to the pranic layer. It moved from layer to layer like a royal guest! It was so empowered, that the desires, guilt and pain were not able to attack it at all. Even in the causal layer, it did not fall asleep. It was so energetic, and it finally entered the nirvanic layer, relaxed and just disappeared! Read More

Feel grateful to suffering and pain because they create the situation for you to search for the truth!

Just look back at your life.

When was the last time you were happy about something?

When was the last time you wondered about the meaning of life?

Did you look inwards to see who you are or what life is all about?

Did you feel the need to deeply know about the ultimate Truth?

No!

When things go smoothly you just blindly follow the same routine with barely any awareness or consciousness. There is nothing to jolt you into awareness from your routine and you continue without any awareness.

But when pain happens, it makes you look at life objectively. It forces you to look deeper into life, to learn why you react the way you react and seek to uncover the real mystery of life. Pain is a blessing in disguise. It is the key that can open the door to the world of reality. The choice is yours to open the door or not. Read More

With this renounced, you may enjoy. Covet not the wealth of anyone at all

Listen! Listen! I am moving to the next line of this Upanishad. Please understand this next line:

तेन त्यक्तेन भुञ्जीथा मा गृधः कस्यस्विद्धनम् ॥
Thena Thyakthena Bhunjeethaa Ma Gridhah Kasyasviddhanam ||

The literal translation is:

“With this renounced, you may enjoy. Covet not the wealth of anyone at all.”

Looks very simple moralistic instruction. But it is not! Please understand, if this instruction is moralistic instruction, I would not have even chosen to speak on Upanishads. I am not against morals, but order never comes by morals and discipline in the Cosmos. It is by intelligence and reality that order happens. Please understand, order of the Cosmos never happens by moral and discipline. Order of the Cosmos always happens by intelligence and knowledge, Truth, Reality.

Here, the word, the statement:

तेन त्यक्तेन भुञ्जीथा मा गृधः कस्यस्विद्धनम् ॥
Thena Thyakthena Bhunjeethaa Ma Gridhah Kasyasviddhanam ||

“With this renounced, you may enjoy. Covet not the wealth of anyone at all.” Read More

If you know how Krishna happened and is operating, you will just merge in Him.

Janma karma cha me divyam evam yo vetti tattwatah;

Tyaktwa deham punarjanma naiti maameti so’rjuna!

Krishna says He who knows in true light MY divine birth and action, after having abandoned the body, he is not born again, he comes to ME.

Bhaktyamam abhijanati yavan yaskasmi tattvatah, tatomam tattvato jnatve visate tadanantaram!

Devoted to Me in the Truth, what and who am I, knowing the truth of Me, he enters into the Supreme.

Krishna is such an orator, who can verbalize the whole Truth in such an amazing way! Not just Bhagwan, God, Poornavatara who had Saraswathi in his tongue and Lakshmi in His hrudaya and Devi in his being, courage, Poornavatara. No, every time you read even one sloka of Gita, you see it clearly again and again, the most precise, the most sophisticated expression of the Truth as it is. Especially the Royal Sanskrit.

See, the Sanskrit also has a version which used by common men, the version which was used by Pundits, the version which was used by Rishis, the version which was used by Kings. Krishna uses the version which was used by Kings and Rishis, like the english of J Krishnamoorthi. The English I am using is more or less the english used by common men, or a little bit used by the masters like Osho, Vivekananda, but J Krishnamoorthi’s english is the royal English, used by the elite. The Tamil I use is the Tamil used by the elite. Actually, the Tamil I can play both game; I can be slang of village or rural slum or the rishis Tamil or Tamil of the siddhas or Tamil of the kings; but English is the common man’s, or a little bit masters like Osho or Vivekananda. Here the Sanskrit Sri Krishna is using is the Sanskrit of Kings, elite. Every time I read even one verse of the Gita, I just remember the personality Krishna would have been carrying, and the way He lived, which is the perfect blend of an amazing Rishi and an amazing King. If I have to compare, I can only compare with the Tamil used by Meenakshi; there are many verses attributed to Meenakshi, the songs and verses, I can be sure it is from Her only, just by the language, because she carries the language of the Siddha and Queen, the language of elite.

न जायते म्रियते वा कदाचित्
ज्ञायं भूत्वा भविता वा न भूयः |
अजो नित्यः शाश्वतोऽयं पुराणो
न हन्यते हन्यमाने शरीरे ||

Na jaayathey mriyathey vaa kadhaachith
Jnaayam bhoothvaa bhavithaa vaa na bhooyaha |
Ajo nithyaha shaashvathoyam puraano
Na hanyathey hanyamaaney shareerey ||

“It is not born, nor does it die;
It is not that having been non-existent it comes into existence;
It is unborn, eternal, ancient and ever-lasting;
Though associated with the body, it does not get killed even when the body is killed.”

Second Chapter, twentieth verse of the Bhagavadgita.

Please understand, I am quoting the Bhagavadgita not because these lines are just Krishna’s experience, but because these lines are my own experience too! I am not trying to hide myself behind Krishna’s authority. I am declaring these words are true. Reason one: Krishna said it. Reason two: My experience. Understand, it is not only Krishna’s authority, but my own authenticity. Both stand for these words’ truth. Both stand to prove these verses are true.

The verse in Bhagavad Gita, the words of Sri Krishna:

उद्धरेद् आत्मनात्मानं नात्मानम् अवसादयेत्
आत्मैव ह्यात्मनो बन्धुर् आत्मैव रिपुर् आत्मनः ॥६-५॥

Uddhared ātmanātmānaṃ nātmānam avasādayet |
ātmaiva hyātmano bandhur ātmaiva ripur ātmanaḥ || 6-5 ||

This is the exact interpretation I will give: “Raising your self-drive by yourself by setting the right context, you will be a great friend for yourself. If you cannot raise your self-drive by yourself by setting the right context, you are the greatest enemy for you.”

Self-drive, listen, self-drive from the right context, self-drive from the right context, self-drive from the Advaithic space to live and radiate Advaitha, self-drive from the Advaithic space to live and enrich yourself and others is the goal of life; that is the purpose of life; that is the reason for life; that is why life exists.
