Ignorance is declared first time in you when you do not want to know, not when you don’t know

I will continue to expand on the 8th verse of the Īśāvāsya Upaniṣad

sa paryagāc-chukram akāyam avraṇam  asnāviram śuddham apāpa-viddham |
kavir manīṣī paribhūḥ svayambhūr   yathātathyato-arthān vyadadhāc-chāśvatībhyaḥ samābhyaḥ || 8 ||

Pure Consciousness is all-pervasive beyond the coming and going, absolute radiant and self-effulgent, un-embodied boundary-less whole, woundless, muscleless having no incompletion with the body; Consciousness is the ever pure space devoid of the dirt of ignorance (beyond causal body), and is untouched by the delusion of incompletion.

Listen. I wanted all of you to take up this as a Vakyartha Sadas – subject and homework. Start working on – unembodied, boundaryless whole, woundless muscleless having no incompletion with the body. Consciousness is ever pure space devoid of dirt of ignorance and is untouched by the delusion of incompletion. Consciousness is the all-knowing seer of all — past, present and future, Consciousness transcends all beings. Consciousness is self-existent by Itself.

Actually only first two lines will take so many days. Once you know the knack, now you can work on all these truths in one or two days. So by today and tomorrow, finish-off all this by doing the homework of — what is the pattern which makes me experience otherwise the Upaniṣad is describing as ‘me.’ Continue reading “Ignorance is declared first time in you when you do not want to know, not when you don’t know”

First, foremost, and final words given to the universe from the Universe, given to humanity from the Cosmos

Listen! This is the first and foremost, and final word! Upanishads are not like Science, every day developing. For example, today a scientist will come and declare something as truth. Everyone will agree. That will be considered as truth. People will make their life’s decisions, align everything based on that truth. In ten years, another scientist will come and prove that whole thing as false and declare something else as truth. Then people will align their lives to that. And then, after five years, somebody else will come and declare that as a lie and prove something else as truth. Understand, if the truth is going to be changing tomorrow, it is not truth even today. Upanishads are not like science which is evolving or changing. It is like a scientist carries a lantern in a thick forest and tells the truths about the forest to the world, ‘There are ten trees, two snakes, and….dark.’ When you walk further, ‘No, no, the forest is not just ten trees and two snakes; it is more than twenty-five trees, and two elephants.’ When you walk further, ‘No, no, no, no, no, it is not even twenty-five trees. Trees, trees, trees! Any side we turn the lantern, it is trees, trees, trees all around, and different types of animals!’ This is what is Science! But, Upanishads are a Rishi sitting and seeing the whole forest in a flash of lightning and describing it! Understand, the lantern descriptions will always change; but the Rishi sitting in the peak of the hill, seeing the whole thing in one flash of lightning, and penning it down, is Upanishads! Understand the difference between these two. Upanishads are the first, foremost, and final word on truth! First, foremost, and final word on truth!

Nothing, nothing like Upanishads declare all the truths in so close a way to the heart, in such a closer way to the heart. Such a beautiful way to live! User-friendly! Continue reading “First, foremost, and final words given to the universe from the Universe, given to humanity from the Cosmos”

Living Advaitha XIV

..continued from Living Advaitha XIII

I wanted to make these few statements on Living Advaitha. The more and more violence you cherish, more and more you become pieces, disintegrated and useless to yourself and others. Listen. Never ever believe, out of ignorance or innocence people will become useless. No. Only out of cunningness, people become useless. It’s law of life. If somebody is not useful to themself and others, be very clear, it is intense violence they are cherishing. See, when the land when there is no water, it becomes too hot. It breaks and gives way, goes to pieces. Same way, in the Being when there is too much of violence, heat, it gets disintegrated.

I tell you, not once or twice, thousands of times I have seen, whether it is Thanedars, Kotharis or Mahants, whenever I see inefficiency, I see a deep anger inside them, arrogance, feeling that they need to be given more in everything. I never accept innocence or ignorance with inefficiency. It is a deep violence and anger, arrogance. So, listen. This is law of life. This is law of life. You cannot debate with it. You cannot fight with it. You cannot change it. There is nothing even to accept it.

Anywhere you see people carrying impossibility, dry, cannot relate with the reality of life. Please understand, whenever you relate with the reality of life joyful, auspicious things simply happen around you. If the people around you, who see you, live around you, if they cannot celebrate your presence, you are completely infested with intense violence. Be very clear, people should be able to celebrate your presence. If people around you celebrate your presence, you are a Sannyasi. Otherwise, you just live in your arrogant shell. You need to do lot of Completion. I tell you, please understand, these are some of the law of life, may look paradoxical, but these are truths. Your body should celebrate your presence inside it. Your stomach should bless you after you give food. After food if you are feeling tired, sleepy, your stomach is cursing you, feeling heavy, uncomfortable, be very clear, you are not eating for your body, you are eating for your tongue. Few inch muscle can destroy your whole life. Your body should celebrate your presence in it. The people around you should celebrate your presence in their life. Somehow, this not being in tune with life is considered as one of the spiritual quality or it is being tolerated.

Please understand, you should not accumulate wealth immorally, adharmically. But, if you are not able to generate whatever wealth you need to fulfil your mission, there is something seriously wrong in you; your goal is not as you declared, there is hypocrisy in it; there is a strong inauthenticity, cheating. I tell you, just if one body and one mind is integrated to one goal, Cosmos can never say, ‘No’; even if the goal is so-called ‘wrong’. If a body and mind is integrated to the goal, authentic to the goal, Cosmos has to simply say, ‘Thathaasthu’.

From Tiruvannamalai Mahant I recieved a mail, ‘I am not able to run; too many staff. No income. I will drop two staff.’ I just told him, ‘Drop this pattern of ‘how much I can do’, and look around. You will see what you need immediately will be there.’ By evening I received a mail, ‘Yes, I dropped that pattern ‘how much I can do’ and looked around. There were people already giving what I wanted.’ Continue reading “Living Advaitha XIV”

Everything is you is a Fact !

Either you can keep your inner-space powerful, fulfilled, joyful, or keep yourself in utter poverty, dull, depressed, constantly in conflict, fighting with everyone, finding fault with everyone, accusing everyone: ‘This person is not right! That person is not right! That person is not right!’ It is up to you how you can keep your inner-space. A Thanedar level person is starting his spiritual journey. If he keeps on accusing, it can be tolerated. If a Kothari keeps on abusing everyone, he should not be tolerated; he should be reminded and trained. If a Mahant keeps on abusing everyone, he should … Continue reading Everything is you is a Fact !
