Do I accumulate karma through action or do I burn karma through action?

Understand, if your context is moving towards completion, you burn karma through action. If your context is not towards completion, you accumulate karma through action.

Whether you burn karma through action or accumulate karma through action is dependent on how you hold ‘you’, the context you set for you.

Basically if you believe Cosmos has CC TV camera recording going on, you will be accumulating karma by action, because that kind of a faith will lead to that kind of a thought current and action flow. But if you understand, it has no CC TV footage recording going on, it has only internal chip recording the audio, you will exhaust your karma through your action because you know where you need to work – is the thought current you are having not the action trend you are doing.

The struggle is not supposed to be done to wake up early morning 4:30, the struggle is supposed to done to break the lazy thought current and boredom thought pattern.

Unfortunately when you believe the CC TV footage, all your struggle is aimed at morning 4’o clock instead of breaking the thought current of boredom, thought pattern of tiredness and thought pattern of tiredness and boredom. Even for your whole life, if you wake up early morning 4:30, did not break your thought pattern, thought current of boredom and tiredness, you built a good habit not liberation.

Habit is a habit…all of you know, I may want to remind you once more—in habit, if you remove the H, A BIT will be there; if you remove the A,  BIT will be there, if your remove B, IT will be there. Only if you remove the “I’ the thought current, it will die.

Even if you work whole day in Microsoft, did not complete with that thought current of feeling bored and tired, understand, you will just feel stuck and feel exploited, sucked and die by 45. After 45, if something is left in your body, that may be much worst than death.

If you break the boredom thought current and bring activism, you have experienced activism and go on working, you may be working till the last moment of this “body’s existence” and still will not be tired, retired, bored. If YOU are bored, bore yourself and your thought current. If you are bored, drill, bore the thought current of feeling bored.

Discarding thought currents is Completion

Listen, you might have read from a best seller, the thoughts, thought trend and cherishing, highly entertaining. Please listen, please listen, if the thought current is not giving you breakthrough, if it not giving you constant breakthrough, it is only karma. Please understand, including my teachings, only if it gives you breakthrough, it is completion.

Decide to throw the net out, completely, not part by part.

Today morning when you wake up, if you are feeling bored and tired and having slight stomach pain, not only question your idea of health, question the very idea about the world, life, god.

If you have a tooth pain and you want to get rid of it and you are not able to, question the very idea of world, very idea of world, the very idea of ‘you’ you have. Don’t just question the toothpaste you are using, don’t just question the brand of the medicine you are applying on your teeth, understand. Read More

Don’t try to stop the current of Ganga using a stick !

The non-dualistic space – please listen – whatever is happening in and around you, whether it makes you feel powerful or makes you feel powerless, know for sure it is you not just responsible! Please understand, responsibility is one of the strategizing out of non-dualism. Responsibility leads to living enlightenment. Here I am explaining one more very deep, important truth. Please understand, immediately whatever you experience in and around you, whether it makes you powerful or makes you powerless, it all boils down finally to the play of your own different trends and currents.

Please understand, you have multiple thought-currents, but, fortunately, only one thought-trend. That is why liberation is possible. Please listen! You may have ten-million enemies; but only one can attack you at a time. This is the exact meaning of the word when I say you may have many currents, but you can have only one trend. When I say “current”, I mean the “thought-current you have. The underlying, underneath thought-current of you can be multiple. One of your thought-currents can be you will be constantly making efforts to live a care-free life. Another thought-current can be constantly thinking to have more and more responsibility, power under your control. So, be very clear, there may be one thought-current continuously working for vacation life; and there can be one thought-current continuously thinking for working for more and more wealth. There can be tons and tons of thought-currents. One side you can have the thought-current, ‘I cannot tolerate this woman anymore! If this is the way she is going to torture me, better I throw her away from my life!’ The other thought-current, ‘No, no, no….she stood by me in so many difficult situations. He stood by me in so many difficult times. I should not think like this. I should be thinking to make her or him as part of my life!’ You can have any number of thought-currents, but you will have only one thought-trend.

Please listen! Thought-trend means, the every-day life how you are running, the every-day decisions how you are taking. Please listen, if you understand this one truth, living enlightenment will become very easy. Whatever may be your thought-current – today morning you may be feeling very fresh, alive, nice, you slept well – whatever may be your thought-current – no peace, whether you had a beautiful sleep, good sleep, or a nightmare, disturbed sleep, all these things are thought-currents, all that is thought-current. Please understand, all that is thought-current.

Please listen! But, but your thought-trend can be completely kept out of the impact of thought-currents. Listen! The good news is, your thought-trend can be completely kept out of your different thought currents. The best news is, the thought-trend can be completely kept out of the thought-current, because, both of them never get joined. Listen! The good news is, your thought-trend can be kept out of your thought-current. The best news is, they are never joined together! That is why various thought-currents can influence your thought-trend in various ways. Today you can feel depressed; tomorrow you can feel joyful. Today you can feel bound; tomorrow you can feel liberated. Liberation itself is possible because your thought-current cannot influence your thought-trend. It influences if you allow; but, by the very intrinsic nature, the thought-current has no power over the thought-trend.

“Thought-current” is the undercurrent of the Ganga. “Thought-trend” is the floating, the space of Ganga. For example, if some objects are floating on the Ganga, boats, or some flowers, something put on the Ganga, whatever is floating is “thought-trend”, and whatever is undercurrent is “thought-current”. In your every-day decisions how you decide to respond to the world, how you decide to respond to you, your every-day cognition about you and others – listen – that is “thought-trend”. And the undercurrent which goes on in you, which you believe is not in your control, is “thought-current”. But, you need to know, anything which is not in your control, you don’t need to control, because you cannot control!

Please listen! If god has not given something in your control, he doesn’t expect you to control it! So, don’t feel powerless if something is not in your control. And, if something is in your control, take responsibility for it. If something is not in your control, be free from that responsibility. But, unfortunately, whenever something is not in our control, we feel powerless; whenever something is in our control, we feel it is our responsibility. See the funny way the mind behaves, life behaves! If something is not in our control, we feel powerless because of that. If something is in our control, we feel, ‘Oh, so much of responsibility!’ Again powerlessness because of that! If you decide to be powerless, whether you have or don’t have, you will fall into powerlessness! When you decide to be powerful, whether you have or don’t have, you will be powerful!

Your thought-current can be however good or bad. It can be the thought-current of a great being like Buddha, Shankara, Krishna, or it can be thought-current of the worst terrorist. It can be anything. Listen! You may have the worst thought-current or the best thought-current. Your thought-current is immaterial. Your thought-trend only needs to be attended to. As on now, you have power over only your thought-trend. My only request is, go on aligning your thought-trend, and don’t be powerless about your inability to control your thought-current. See, when you are not able to control something, feel liberated from that responsibility. Are you sitting and worrying that you are not able to move the Sun as you want, the moon as you want, Mars as you want, Saturn as you want? You are not sitting and worrying about this. You only feel free from that responsibility. Same way, when your thought-current is not under your control, when you are not able to control it, feel liberated from that responsibility.

How much you assume your power, that much only responsibility is also given to you. Now you assume you are powerful enough only to align your thought-trend; that much responsibility only you have, don’t worry! We are not going to expect a kid to do something which he cannot do. We are not going to expect a kid to do, ‘Oh, let him do this, this, this, this, this, and make his living.’ No! We are not going to expect a kid to do all that. Be very clear, life is not going to expect too much from you. But, unfortunately, the kid starts worrying. When the kid sees his father going to the office and working the whole day, night coming back and getting the food, he starts worrying, ‘Oh, god, I also have to do like this from day-after-tomorrow!’ No! First of all, you don’t need to do from day-after-tomorrow. Second, when you are expected to do, you will have all the powers better than your father.

Don’t imagine and create powerlessness because of imaginary responsibility. The powerlessness which happens in you due to imaginary responsibilities takes away the power to perform even the real responsibilities you have! I have seen many of my own sannyasis, they will have so much of imagination and the imaginary powerlessness due to the imaginary responsibilities. ‘Oh god, if I run this one ashram, then Swamiji will ask me to run twenty more ashrams! Then Swamiji will ask me to run twenty-five more ashrams! Then Swamiji will ask me to run all the ashrams in the whole country! How will I do all this?’ Making you powerless by the imaginary responsibilities, today’s responsibilities also you won’t do!

I have seen….I have seen people getting tired just by imaginary responsibilities. Understand, you don’t have to have imaginary responsibilities, and you don’t need to feel powerless by trying to control the thought-current. Thought-current need not be controlled. Thought-trend only needs to be controlled. Master is a person who has mastered the thought-trend, understand? I was also believing very foolishly in the young age that I have to control the whole thought-current to become a Master, which is not required. Just control the thought-trend. When you are powerful keeping the thought-trend under your control, in a few days you will see the thought-current is also already under your control!

Please understand, all the struggles all of you are having – I can name everyone of you, each one of you who are listening to what I am saying now – please listen, all your struggle, powerlessness, feeling bound, everything is because you are struggling with your thought-current. When you are supposed to do just the Monday Vrata, Monday Fasting, Somavara vrata, by the evening of Monday you think, ‘Even this one day I am not able to do. When am I going to become Nirahari?’ No! Becoming Nirahari is controlling the whole thought-current. Don’t worry about that now. Just be powerful with the thought-trend. Just be powerful with the Monday one day fasting. Master just that thought-trend. I am giving you one example. In every level I can give you.

Your every-day activity, make yourself powerful in that! You don’t need to struggle, you don’t need to be powerless with your thought-current. Please understand, mastering – listen – mastering, feeling powerful with your thought-trend is enough. Just try that again and again and again. Whenever there is a fight, struggling, suffering, powerlessness inside you, it is always because you are fighting foolishly with thought-current.

Understand, it is like you have a boat; you are floating on the Ganga. You have a stick (paddle) with which you row the boat. But, unfortunately, using that stick you are trying to stop the current of the Ganga! Is it possible? Just row your boat and be powerful, save yourself! Don’t try to control the current of Ganga by using the stick (paddle) with which you can row your boat. Don’t try to control the whole thought-current of you by your simple logic and will that you are carrying. Use that to only feel powerful over the thought-trend.

Your boss is nothing but one part of you, which always wants to rule without explaining!

Thought-trend is how you consciously choose to align a few thoughts as part of you. That is “thought-trend”.

Thought-current” is, which is the default thinking style of your personality, your being, your inner-space.

For example, the day I went to do Ganga Arati, those few days we celebrate the “Colours of Life” in Hindu Tradition by throwing colour powder. So, I saw, people were throwing colour even on Ganga Ma! They were throwing colours on Ganga and celebrating. See, when you throw the colour powder on Ganga, naturally the colour powder will float on the top of the Ganga, and in a few days it will disappear into the Ganga. So, imagine the colour powder floating on the Ganga; that is what I call “thought-trend”. And the flow of the Ganga is “thought-current”.

Every day, how you perceive you, with what all you are directly struggling, that is “thought-trend”.

And your whole life’s thinking flow, what you perceive as you in your dreams, in your deep sleep, all that I will call as “thought-current”.

My only request: just co-ordinate your thought-trend; that is enough! You don’t need to worry about your thought-current. Thought-trend” means, every day in your thought-trend, thinking trend, based on which you make your day-to-day decisions like, ‘Should I drive my car and go to office, or should I go by bus? Should I get up and brush my teeth, or should I just have a cup of coffee and lie down? Should I take up a job or not?’ How every day decisions you make, that you make naturally based on thought-trend, not on thought-current.

Understand, based on thought-current you make bigger, stupid decisions like marrying, divorcing, committing suicide; those kind of stupid decisions only you make based on thought-current. But these small decisions like, ‘Should I drive my car, or should I go by bus? Am I feeling sleepy, or am I feeling fresh?’, these things you do based on thought-trend. Please listen, don’t worry at all about thought-current. Just decide you will align your thought-trend. Means, every morning when you get up, tell yourself, ‘I cannot have tiredness or boredom. I am the eternal, excited, Satchitananda Swaroopa, Nithyanandoham!’ Naturally, your inner-space will raise a doubt, because you are all brainwashed by psychologists: ‘No, no, no….unless the truth becomes my experience, how can I start living it?’

The SDHD (Self-Doubt, Self-Hatred, Self-Denial), one of the biggest diseases with which human-beings are suffering, is supplied, controlled by psychologists. Please understand, the collective karma the profession is suffering is because of constantly keeping people in SDHD, Self-Doubt, Hatred, Denial. The collective joy that sannyasis are enjoying is because we go on giving courage and confidence! I tell you, even the beggar Sannyasi who does not contribute anything, just because he wears this cloth (“kaavi” – the saffron-coloured cloth), he gets food and money. Even a foolish psychiatrist who does not know much of psychology, just because of his profession, he commits suicide.

Listen! Don’t believe the idea these psychologists put in your system that only if you transform your thought-current you can be complete, you can rest in peace. No! Just organize your thought-trend; that is enough! From morning waking up to night falling asleep, your every day, if you align it to Advaitha, that is enough. Morning when you wake up if you feel bored or tired, just tell yourself, ‘I am the eternal space, Nithyananda! I cannot be tired! I cannot be bored!’ One part of you continues to tell you, ‘No, no…..I am tired! I am bored!’ Don’t worry about it. It is okay. You be democratic. Tell it, ‘You be tired for some time. I will be fresh for some time.’ Don’t give up, saying, ‘Oh, God! Unless I transform the whole thought-current, I cannot be Advaithi.’ No! Start with the thought-trend; then, every action, small-small actions.

In India we have this bunch of Maoists, Naxals, terrorist fellows, with weapons. One bunch is with weapons. There is another one bunch with ideology. In Tamil Nadu, there is the bunch of atheist fellows. These atheist fellows are robbers of society. They rob society. How many thousands of crores they swindled by different means – through cinemas, through media, through the entertainment industry, through politics! But they go on abusing: ‘Why should you give these few coins to sadhus….sadhus and priests?’ Please understand….understand some of the important ideas I am trying to share with you. Those few sadhus and priests, they may not have transformed their thought-current into Advaitha, but their every-day thought-trend is mixed with so much of Advaitha! So, please understand, they are a thousand times better than any of your psychologists. These sadhus and priests, they are thousand times better than any of your psychtherapists! The priests and sadhus at least help you to align your thought-trend to non-dualism.

You don’t need to bother about the whole thought-current. The thought-trend being aligned towards Advaitha is enough, because as life you are experiencing only thought-trend. Actually, when you align your thought-trend, the thought-current also will become non-dualistic. But we always think that only after thought-current becomes non-dualistic, the thought-trend should become non-dualistic. No! Start with the thought-trend. Then your thought-current will automatically become non-dualistic. Start tuning your thought-trend to non-dualistic.

Handle your every-day actions, simple actions like what kind of food you eat, how many hours you sleep, what is your simple perception about your neighbours, what is your simple perception about your boss, what is your simple perception about your spouse, these day-to-day things, align it to Advaitha. Know very clearly, your boss is nothing but one part of you which always wants to rule without explaining! Again your spouse….is also one part of you who goes on explaining which you don’t want to listen! Whether you realize it or not, everyone who is part of your life is extension of you. I may not even want to use the word “extension”. I want to correct that word to,“Everyone who is part of your life is YOU!’ Because, the word “extension” gives a certain gap. Everyone who is part of your life is YOU!

Kundalini awakening, Yoga, meditation, Kriya, everything is great as long as it leads you to experience the non-dualistic truth, Advaitha Sathya, Advaitha Poorna, Advaitha Jnana. So, I wanted our whole Sangha – please listen – the whole Sangha, whether you are a Thanedar, Mahant, or Kothari, Shrimahant, whoever you are, align all your relationships with everyone to Advaitha. If there is a problem that the other person is not listening to you, first see you are not able to speak into your listening; that is why you are not able to speak into others’ listening. See where you are not able to speak into your listening. Do that!

My dream Sangha is: Never anybody will force the other person for anything; where everyone is able to speak into his own listening and others’ listening. Understand, in every step of your life, infuse Shuddha Advaitha Sathya, the pure Advaithic principles, pure Advaithic knowledge, pure Advaitha. Make it as thought-trend. Make it as thought-trend.
