I had the great fortune of living in an amazing Gurukul in Tiruvannamalai. Multiple Hindu specialists in Adi-Shaivam, Vedanta, Siddhanta, Bhakti Sampradaya fields reproduced their Enlightenment in My system. Whatever I received from My Gurus, I am sharing it and reproducing it in My Gurukul.

I will reveal about my own gurukul! My whole life is gurukul! First 21 years I myself had gurukul under various gurus and their gurukuls, from my first guru – my mother.

Mother is always the first guru for everyone because she starts teaching you the basic things of life. Then, my grandfather who started taking me to temple, my adishaiva guru, Panduranganar, my yoga guru Raghupathi yogi, my vedanta guru Isakki Swamigal, my tantra guru Ma Vibhutananda Puri, Annamalai Swamigal, Visiri Swamigal – the whole Tiruvannamalai is the best amazing Gurukul! The temple is like a practical laboratory. Each branch’s masters, specialists of each field were available in the whole city. It is literally the largest living Hindu University. Read More

Look at you from the prism of Sadāshiva, instead you look at Sadāshiva from the prism of you!

First few things, which I wanted to share today. This was one of the important subject, I am introducing into Inner Awakening. Maybe I can say, from the different angle. The truth itself, is not new. The way I am presenting is completely new. Discovering the principle, discovering the principle, on which all the Universes function, all the dimensions and planes, 11 dimensions, 14 plane. Actually, 3 dimension fall in…sorry 3 planes fall in 1 dimension itself. 1 plane does not fall into any of the dimensions. 14 planes, 11 dimensions. All of them function, on 1 principle. Read More

Enlightened masters don’t have inner chatter, they experience the pure and ultimate visualization!

The very source of intelligence is clear visualization. You need to plan only when you don’t have complete and clear visualization. Pure and clear visualization expresses the total concept in one glimpse. If we don’t have such visualization, we do linear planning or step by step logical processing.

Enlightened masters don’t have inner chatter, in other words they don’t have the continuous train of thoughts going on in them. So they experience the pure and ultimate visualization. Anybody with clear visualization does not require planning. Spontaneity is enough to do the job. Events happen spontaneously around such a person. Any updating or development that is required also happens automatically. Even if events change they will beautifully fit within the framework initiated. Only a person with pure visualization can create a real, tangible program and update it constantly with spontaneity and intelligence.

We see so many examples of this in our own organization like in our ashram in the temple town of Tiruvannamalai in Tamil Nadu in South India. Tiruvannamalai is home to the sacred, mystical hill Arunachala. A once empty piece of land near the base of the mountain was converted into a full scale ashram in a record breaking time of 18 days! At the end of 18 days, it had one dozen deities installed, 1008 Shiva lingas (dome shaped representation of the male and female energies of creation) consecrated, as well as accommodation and food facilities. Over a hundred thousand people witnessed the inauguration and stood testimony to the play of spontaneous intelligence at work.

Whatever you hold with fear of losing it, precisely that will be taken away from you!

Please understand, the perception evolving, evolution of the perception is a gift happening to you, which is just happening from Perception to Fact, Fact to Truth, Truth to Reality. And anybody who stops the evolution of perception commits spiritual suicide, “Atma Hathya”, understand? “Atma Hathya”, that is the word I will use. Killing the soul, the possibility! Killing the soul and possibility! I am telling you, not to frighten you, not to correct you, not to control you, not even I am interested in guiding you. And I know nobody listens to me! After talking twelve-thousand hours last fifteen years, I am very clear on my conclusion that nobody listens to me! I am talking for me to listen to me, understand? With this clarity I am declaring this truth. Upanishads just declare their own strength by their own statements. They don’t need any author to authenticate them. Same way, whatever I am talking, the dharma, the truth, I am revealing it for myself! The listener’s listening does not need to authenticate what is being uttered. With this clarity I am uttering these words:

Listen!

WHATEVER YOU HOLD WITH FEAR OF LOSING IT, EXACTLY THAT WILL ONLY BE TAKEN AWAY FROM YOU!

I am telling you…..

People ask me, ‘What is this, Swamiji! I am such a good person. I never cheated anybody. But my wealth is taken away. But these guys who cheat everyone, their wealth and all is not taken away. They are all living wealthily.’ Read More

Whatever you perceive as changeful inside and outside you, even when you perceive as changeful inside and outside you, it is Consciousness, which is beyond any change!

Please understand, now what I am revealing is, layer by layer, Akashic Records, about this one verse!

OM! If I have to expand on this, OM! The sound of whatever is, the vibration of whatever is still vibrating, vibration of whatever is still vibrant! OM! OM! OM! It has to be experienced! OM! OM! OM!

ईशावास्यमिदं सर्वं यत्किञ्च जगत्यां जगत् ।

Eeshaavaasyamidham Sarvam Yathkincha Jagathyaam Jagath |

Conclusive! “Idham Sarvam” ( इदम् सर्वं)! “Vaasyam” (वास्यम्)! No other doubts – “may be”, “must be”, “could be”, “this is what should be”, “what else can be”. No! ‘This is what is my experience. I don’t know. It is up to you.’ No! Nothing of that sort!

ईशावास्यमिदं सर्वं यत्किञ्च जगत्यां जगत् ।

Eeshaavaasyamidham Sarvam Yathkincha Jagathyaam Jagath |

Whatever you perceive as changeful inside and outside you, even when you perceive as changeful inside and outside you, it is God, Consciousness, which is beyond any change!

Listen! The different levels of understanding: Read More

Your outer conditions don’t matter for you to be established in the cognition of Completion

Understand, if something can be added to me today, tomorrow it can be taken away! If something is not true today, how can it become true tomorrow? “Upaadhi”! That is why, in Sanskrit we have a beautiful word – “Upaadhi”. Means…..it has two meanings: “Titles” and “Disease”. “Titles” and “Disease”, both are called by the word “Upaadhi”. “Rich man” – title. This title, that title. All these “Titles”, and “Disease”, both are one and the same! Understand, what I am talking is not impractical. Listen! It is verily practical for you to practice in your life every day. Our elders have practiced all these.

One elderly woman who used to sell buttermilk, ghee, butter, in my native village, Tiruvannamalai, she used to come to Annamalai Swamigal, Ramana Maharshi’s disciple. She used to come to Annamalai Swamigal, and she will offer every day a little buttermilk or butter to Annamalai Swamigal and force him to eat. Literally she will sit, even if it is two hours or three hours! Till he picks up the glass (of buttermilk) and puts a little in his mouth she will sit and pray to Annamalai Swamigal. Annamalai Swamigal is a great enlightened being. And he will never budge for anybody! But, somehow, I have seen, he never deprived her, denied her. He may wait for some time, half-an-hour or one hour; but he will not miss without accepting what she offers. And I have seen many times, I will take something, but he will never touch it; he will give it to others. He will not put it in his mouth. Rarely he will take it and put it in his mouth. Otherwise, he will give it to others. And I also will go there for what he gives! HAHAHAHA! He used to give a lot of candy; so I will go there, as a kid. But, this elderly lady, whatever may be the time, he will never deprive her, deny her. He will accept at least a little bit of what she brought. Read More

Throughout My life, I was, I am, I will be always authentically enriching, empowering people continuously.

When I am trying to expand on Upanishads, even I feel I am not using enough words! It is like it is not adequate. Saraswathi may be eloquent, but not adequate to translate the silence of Mahadeva. Translating the silence of Mahadeva, even Saraswathi feels inadequate! She may be eloquent in front of anything, but inadequate in front of Mahadeva’s silence. Upanishads are Mahadeva’s silence. Translating that into words! It is only by Mahadeva’s grace I can translate, translate, translate his silence into words and deliver, understand?

I was expanding on the concept of “nation” and “desha” (“देश” ). When decision-makers, whether in the field of business or ruling, when decision-makers are out of fear and greed, it is all about producing in mass and sharing with the world. When the decision-makers are caught in fear and greed, then it is all going to be about possessing and controlling. Wealth, handled with incompletion, will lead to possessiveness. Power, handled with incompletion, will become controlling. A powerless man, when he is given power, he will only be controlling. A poor man, when he is given wealth, he will only be possessing. A poor man does not even know how to live with wealth, I am telling you. He will just make a big godown, iron godown, a thick wall iron godown, put everything inside, and lock it, and sleep on it! That’s all! And die! Is this the purpose of wealth? And his whole life he will spend worrying, ‘Will anybody know what I am keeping under my bed? And will anybody steal it?’ A poverty-conscious man, even if he stumbles on wealth, he cannot live it. A poor man, incomplete man, even if he sees wealth, he is not going to enjoy it, live it. He may possess it, but he may not live it! Same way, a powerless man, frightened, fear-based person, even if he is given power, he will only be controlling it, he will not be expanding it. A person established in Completion, in the space of Completion, even if he does not have wealth, he knows how to create and live. A person based on Completion, even with the small powers which are available to him, he knows how to enrich people with power. Enriching people with power!

Completion-based lifestyle!

I am telling you, constantly empower yourself!

Constantly empower yourself!

Constantly empower yourself!

Have power and go on empowering people with power. And, I tell you, in which ever field you empower people, you will only become more and more powerful. Only by producing more musicians, you will become a great musician. Only by producing more dancers, you will become a great dancer! Only by producing more doctors, you will become a great doctor! Only by producing more rich people, you will become a richer person! Only by producing more leaders, you will be a great leader! Only by producing more enlightened beings, you will be an INCARNATION!

Upanishads are Existence’s songs about its existence

Any idea, any truth, any concept, any theology, the more the person is present in that theology, the more it is useful only for him, not for the whole world, not for the Whole, not for the humanity or society or the whole universe.  Less the individual is present, more the concept, the idea, the theory, the philosophy is useful for humanity, society, for the Whole.  Less the part is present, more useful for the Whole.  More the part is present, less useful for the Whole.  Understand, less the individual is present, more the truths, concepts, ideas, are useful to the whole humanity, society, and the universe.  More it is universal, less individual.  More individual, less universal.  The individual’s influence should only be for the sake of enriching, never for the sake of establishing the person’s identity. 

I tell you, history is always written by the people who won the wars.  That is why it is never factual, “as it happened”.  No!  No history is factual.  Only when the author’s individual vested interests, fear and greed to certain ideologies disappear, only then the history becomes factual, whole, useful for the whole universe and the whole humanity, whole society.  History written by the people who do not have any vested interests only is called “Puranas”.  Puranas are more factual than any history written by the people with vested interests.  Don’t read any book where the author is heavily present.  If the author has disappeared within him and he doesn’t have any vested interests, fear or greed for an ideology, then READ THAT PERSON, not just his books!  Read that person’s very life!  Be around him and learn; you will catch the truth!

Apourushyathwa!  Even if the author wants to establish his name, there is a corruption, there is a reason, there is a vested interest, there is a fear or greed.  Sometimes authors do not put their name, but they put some popular person’s name, because they wanted that popular identity to protect their work.  That is why so many works are attributed to Adi Shankara.  Only when the individual is absent, his personal vested interests, fear and greed disappear, dissolve, he becomes a pure channel for Existence to sing its own existence.  Upanishads are Existence’s songs about its existence.  Existence’s songs about its existence!  Read More

Anandamaaga irungal

Today is a very auspicious day for our whole Sangha, because today is the day I was reborn in 2000. On the same Diwali day, the rebirth has happened. I had many extraordinary spiritual experiences, but realization of my incarnation-hood, who I am, the original state, that realization completely disconnected me from the world. Around nine months I was completely away from this body and mind. Even though this body and mind was taken care of by Kalabhairava, Kalabhairava was handling it, it was at least doing the activities to keep itself alive, like breathing, eating rarely once in a while; body was doing those basic actions. But there was no sleep or 1-2-3! The body was doing minimal activity to keep itself alive, but I was completely out. So, after nine months…..

See, the last moment I remember was 2000 January 1st, till evening. After that I can recollect only this 2000 Diwali, almost nine months after! Only on the Diwali day, nine or ten months after, on the Diwali day, evening between 4:30 to 6:00, I saw very clearly, as a motherly, feeling compassionate, loving Kali energy landed into my body, and the first word came out in Tamil language – “Anandamaaga irungal” (be blissful)! After almost nine to ten months gap, that was the first word. Just like a cracker explosion it came out! After that, a few words started getting formed, then a few sounds, then that coherence, expression of words started happening. I think, by next April, in 2001 April, the free, coherent speech has started. 

So, Diwali is the auspicious day Mother Kali gave rebirth to this body, and this is the day the world was blessed with that beautiful blessings – “Be Blissful”. Even now, I always see, if that word comes out as a blessings, that is it! Whatever the person is asking, such a strong space is created as a blessing for that person, and I can say it is a real “Thathaasthu”! It happens!

I was nearing Arunachala. I was staying in a place near Kanchipuram. I was able to move my hands and legs coherently. So, the body was going in a bus, public transport, to Arunachala. Please understand, all these without any words inside…..just a vague memory only I had! Kalabhairava was moving the body. May be I saw Arunachala from a distance in the bus. The bus has entered the Arunachala energy field. I saw after five to six minutes suddenly that Kali’s energy landed in the body and the word came out. I can say that is the rebirth! That is the rebirth! 

Actually, after that experience, straight I went into the forest of Arunachala, and sat in a place, rested for almost three days in that joy. And, incidentally, exactly that property is now our Tiruvannamalai Ashram. Exactly the same property! Actually I didn’t know that property belongs to whom and nothing. Later on, exactly the same property was gifted to us by one of our devotees and pre-monastic relatives, and that is where our Tiruvannamalai Ashram is at present.

So, with all my heart, with the space of Mahakali and Maha Kalabhairava, I bless you all and the whole world and everyone, everybody – “Anandamaaga Irungal”! Let bliss overflow in all of you! Be blissful! Blessings to the whole Sangha! Let all of us radiate the eternal bliss! “Anandama Irungal”! Let everything be auspicious from now! Let everything be blissful! Let everyone be established in the space of Completion, Poornathwa! Let everyone radiate joy and enlightenment! Let the energy of Mahakala and Mahakali be on all of us! Let us all live enemy-less, enmity-less life! Let us all live and radiate eternal friendliness, eternal joy! Let Mahadeva establish all of us in the space of Completion, Poornathwa, and always powerful!
