Peace starts from putting starts from putting all your ‘pieces’ together, Integrity!

auṁ 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 ||

anirākaraṇamstva-nirākaraṇam me’stu |

tadātmani nirate ya upaniṣatsu dharmāste mayi santu |

May all Dharma, the Sacred Truths declared by Upaniṣads be fully manifest and radiate in me, who, am integrated and authentically devoted to knowing the experience of that Truth, Ātmā, the Self.

May they manifest and radiate in me – mayi santu te mayi santu |

The declaration, Shanti Mantra. Actually this verse should be not be translated as ‘peace prayer’, it should be translated as ‘peace declaration.’ Understand. Here nobody is praying to anybody. No God is presupposed. No bargain is in the existence. No business deal is in existence. There will always be some said, unsaid understandings.

If you believe in certain things, certain actions will manifest from you, it’s 100% sure. I have always seen, people who do not commit and take responsibility – I can see very clearly, they make fun of our whole lifestyle. Anybody who believes the lifestyle we live in or Sangha, who loves the lifestyle, who believes the lifestyle, I have always seen, they take the responsibility, they fall in love with the responsibility, and active lifestyle. And I have also seen people cooking up their own reasons not to get involved and not to take responsibility. Starts from varied reasons, they are masters in finding reasons. Starts from headache to my kid is too small. But I have always seen, people who do not take the responsibility, do not get involved, do not love Me or the lifestyle I am teaching. When you love, you can’t keep quiet. When you fall in love with somebody, you will just radiate their lifestyle, their thought current. You will just manifest. Continue reading →

Don’t allow even one incompletion without completing it, without building a completion wall as neither sex nor money or name and fame or a greed to rule kingdoms will be the last moment distraction but it will tiny cute desires left unattended!

 

vāyur-anilam amṛtam athedaṁ bhasmāntagṁ śarīram |
auṁ krato smara kṛtagṁ smara krato smara kṛtagṁ smara || 17 ||
 

Now I will give you the translation. I can translate on my own, but I wanted to first read out the literal translation to you.

Let the vital life-energy ‘Wind’ present in the body, now merge into the all-pervading, eternal cosmic life energy ‘Air’; and now let this gross body (along with subtle body) disintegrate into its basic elements and be reduced to the sacred ashes. O Supreme Consciousness, known by the sacred syllable ‘Auṁ’, remember—remember all that has been done to attain Oneness with You. O mind, remember—remember the Supreme Consciousness, the Lord of all enriching sacrifices, whom you have been always remembering in your actions.

I can say in this verse one of the most powerful spiritual practice is given. This process should be called as — Eternal Life Process. Anybody who does this process while he is alive will master this process to practice during the time he leaves the body, and that will naturally make him enlightened, and live the Eternal Life in the Cosmic Space.

Let the vital energy, wind, Vāyu, present in the body now merge into all-pervading eternal consciousness. Vayuranilam amṛtam, the eternal cosmic life-energy – vāyur-anilam amṛtam athedaṁ.

Understand, the great truth revealed in this verse, whatever you call it as life can merge with the Eternal Life; the body can go back to the basic elements, you relax into that Eternal Cosmic Life.

Every night when you fall asleep, if you practice this technique, it will become part of you, your very being, so when you fall into the eternal sleep, you will fall into Eternal Life. It’s actually a technique, the whole sutra, verse is technique – 17th verse of the Isavasya Upanishad. When you fall asleep remember vital life energy, vāyu, relax into the Cosmic Life Energy. Let this body go back to it’s elements, the Source, basic elements; let this consciousness become one with the eternal consciousness, the Oneness, let me remember this – krato smara kṛtagṁ smara krato smara kṛtagṁ smara | Continue reading →

Is there anything called “incompletion”? If it is not there, why are we perceiving it ?

It is like extracting the gold out of mud. See, the gold ore, they collect the gold ore, process it, boil it, acid-wash it; finally the gold comes out. Did the gold come from somewhere out of nowhere? No! It came only from itself. But was the gold there in the beginning? No! It came only from itself. Exactly like the gold from the gold ore, an enlightened being out of you, it is there inside you! Only if it is there it can come out. Otherwise it can’t come out.

Whatever needs to be added in you for you to become an enlightened being is “Completion”. Whatever needs to be removed from you is the idea you have incompletion.

There is no incompletion itself. If something is there, it will continue to be there. Listen! If something is there, it will continue to be there. From the gold ore, if all the dirt can be removed, and gold finally remains, how can you say there was a time this dirt was part of the gold? Anything which can be removed, how can you say it was part of it? You were insensitive to see both of them separate in the beginning. Now they have become separated to the level you are able to sense, that’s all! Listen! If the dirt is inside the gold, can it be separated? No! Because it was never inside, it can be separated. If the incompletions are part of your programming, it can never be separated. Because it is already out of you, it can be taken out. Understand, now they are out of you, but not to the level you can sense it. Once they are out of you to the level you can sense it, you declare:
