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.’ Read More

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! Read More

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.’ Read More

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 be handed over to Kalabhairava! No….the space you declare for yourself and others…..

I tell you, the space of Advaitha is so powerful – please listen – the space of Advaitha is so powerful, it can solve any problem you carry….and any problem you invent! Human-beings are the greatest problem-inventors! See, everything in our society is invented to invent new-new problems! All our desires, fears, lifestyle, everything, you can see, money, the concept of money, the concept of ownership, everything is invented to invent new-new problems! It is like, when the kids have to be kept occupied, you give them some playthings…. What do you call it? There will be a box with multiple colors…. Rubik’s Cube! I don’t know the name; I didn’t play with all that foolishness! You completely destroy it (the Rubik’s Cube), and then you try to align it! What foolishness! I think in our Gurukul we should ban that. Why do you first of all invent a problem and then try to find a solution? Arrey, come on! We already have multiple problems. Find solutions for that! Putting your energy to invent a problem and then finding a solution for it! Please understand, when you enter into the space of Advaitha, the first thing that will happen is, you will stop inventing problems and you will start continuously solving.

I tell you, Advaitha will bring surety about you. The biggest gift of the space of Advaitha is, all your confusions will disappear, you will be sure about what you want to do, what you are and what you want to do. I tell you, people who honour the space of Advaitha in their life as first priority, when they wake up, they wake up like Eshwara of the Universe, Jagadeeshwara (Lord of the Universe)! When they live, they live like Jagadeeswara! They are not only Jagadeeshwaras, they are Jagat Kaaranas (reason/cause for the Universe)!

Please understand, when you are stuck with some pattern and unable to honour the space of Advaitha, that is what I call “Maya” (illusion). And continuing to honour Advaitha even if you are stuck with some pattern is called “Tapas” (penance). That is tapas! I tell you, “the world” is going to be “the world”. In “my world” if you carry the space of Advaitha and approach “the world”, in “the world” also you will attract exactly people who carry the space of Advaitha towards you.

As I said, Advaitha is neither difficult nor easy. Believing that Advaitha is easy or difficult is a most foolish thing. It is like you sitting here and saying, ‘Ganga flowing in Haridwar is the most difficult thing. See, from here we have to walk twenty minutes! How difficult to get into the Ganga! Twenty minutes I have to walk!’ You can say that way. Or, you can say, ‘Ganga flowing in Haridwar is the most easiest thing. It is just twenty minutes walk!’ Your argument that it is easy or difficult does not make any logical sense, because Ganga flowing in Haridwar is the fact! I tell you, same way, everyone is you is a fact! It is a fact! Everyone is you is a fact! There is no question of debating, arguing whether the space of Advaitha is right or wrong. It is the fact! Understand, whether you achieve that space today, or you achieve that space tomorrow, or you achieve after a few janmas (lifetimes), you HAVE to achieve it! Because, that is the only most sure thing on the Planet Earth! The most sure thing in the Universe is the space of Advaitha! That is why I am telling you, if you start understanding Advaitha, if you understand Advaitha, it will make you more and more sure about you to you. This whole Inner Awakening is nothing but making your inner-space experience the power of Advaitha. And Kalpataru is nothing but giving you the glimpse of Advaitha.

Knowing that whatever you want is already part of you is the Science of Artha, acquiring. Listen! Knowing that whatever you do should be from the space of Advaitha is Dharma. Knowing that whatever you want to acquire is already part of your inner-space is the Science of Artha. Knowing that every person in your life you want to have, every person you want to have in your life is already part of you is Kama, the Science of Kama. And knowing that everything is you is the Science of Moksha. I tell you, Kama does not mean just having lust or sexual desires fulfilled. Even the desire to have a friend, even the desire to have a good brother, even the desire to have a good mother, the desire to have a good relationship with your father, desire to have a good son, good daughter, everything is Kama only! Please understand, having a good mother completes you so much, even if you have a spouse, you will radiate so much of friendliness with him or her. Same way, having a good father completes you so much, even with your wife or husband you will radiate so much of friendliness. Friendliness is the smell of Advaitha!

Understand, I tell you, the space of Advaitha is the source of all the great things in the Planet Earth. The founder of Homoeopathy was a great enlightened being. He was an Advaithi. All the plants, herbs spoke to him and they revealed to him what for they can be used, what disease they can cure, and he recorded. Otherwise it is impossible to record and do R&D (research and development) on so many thousands of herbs and medicines. Same way, all our siddhas, the Ayurveda science! Where were the labs? Where were the R&D methods? It is the power of Advaitha! The plants revealed their glory and their quality and what for they can be used, what diseases they can heal, and the siddhas and rishis they recorded it. Whether it is Indian dance, Indian music, Indian medicine, Indian way of dressing, Indian sex, Indian entertainment, Indian architecture, Indian cooking, Indian way of eating, Indian way of sleeping, everything, I tell you , is from the space of Advaitha. The way we solve conflicts, the way we create law, the way we create rules, the way we create understanding, the way we create organizations, the way we create our religious lifestyle, the way we create our beliefs, the way we create our Sanatana Sangha, everything, everything is based on the space of Advaitha.

Building of the Sangha is for Advaitha, to live Advaitha, to radiate Advaitha, to teach Advaitha. Teaching Advaitha is to live Advaitha. Living Advaitha is to teach Advaitha.

Advaitha in thinking is clarity. If you have an advaithic approach towards yourself, that will make you understand you will become too sure about what you want, understand? Being sure about what you want will remove all powerlessness from your life. It will make you so powerful, it will bring so much success. Not only everything you touch, everything people touch in your name also will become successful! Taking your name, anything people touch will become successful! The space of Advaitha is so powerful, anybody who takes your name and touches any work, they will be successful!

Everything is you. Look into you and repair. I tell you, everything is you. The good news is, by repairing inside, you can repair everything outside. The best news is, when you understand everything is you, you need not even repair it. This “good news”, “bad news” series has to be replaced with a new series called “good news”, “best news”. I am going to do that now: The “good news”, “best news” series!

Make all the decisions based on Advaitha. Make all the cognition happen based on Advaitha. It is the ultimate truth of Advaitha Sathya. Everything needs to be done in the “my world”; then, automatically, “the world” responds.

So, I can tell you with all my integrity and authenticity, everything that comes out of me is just straightaway asking you, making you to live Advaitha. And, I tell you, that is the only space where you will find rest, you will find success, you will find Completion, you will find fulfilment.

So, understand, you have been cheated, you missed it so badly! So, I tell you, if you have received Advaitha from me, you have received the best things you can receive from me and the world! If you have missed Advaitha from me, you have missed very badly from me, and received from the Cosmos! So, receive Advaitha; that is the best thing I am secretly hiding.
