Ashtavakra says, You who have been bitten by the great black serpent of egoism ‘I am the doer’! Drink the nectar of the faith, ‘I am not the doer’ and be happy. Ashtavakra gives this technique to the king and seeker, Janaka. Please … Continue reading Unclutch from creating, maintaining, destroying any thought and realize you are the Supreme Self, Parabrahma!
Let us see how unclutching is related to what happens every moment in your body – breathing!
Between the incoming breath and the outgoing breath is a neutral space. Your identity exists in the incoming and outgoing breath spaces. Constantly you can connect and see you are connected when you are aware of your breath. But in the gap of the neutral space your identity does not exist. You don’t connect the gaps, so you jump over this gap.
You think that the breathing space or breathing time is more than the neutral space. This is because you have more thoughts when breathing. Because you give more emphasis to your identity you think that the time of the incoming breath and outgoing breath is more than the time of neutral space. In reality it is not. It is just a psychological game.

The moment you hear you are unclutched, the first fear that arises in you is, connecting my thoughts, who will pay my bills? I could lose all my wealth. I could forget where I keep all my money. I may not be able to live successfully in society. How will I do my job? How will I take care of my things? Won’t I not just lie down in my bed without doing anything? Why would I want to go to my office?’ The question has nothing to do with unclutching.
When you are in that space of irresponsibility or defeatist attitude, mentally you are very active but physically you are tired. When you are unclutched, physically you are active and alive, but mentally you are silent.
If you have such questions, just unclutch and sleep for ten days. There’s nothing wrong with that. Have a vacation for ten days. Decide, ‘I am going to unclutch from both the identities.’ How many days do you think you can sleep? How many days do you think the cessation of activity can continue in you? Only until the tamas in you is exhausted. After that you will automatically start doing something.
So,even if you feel it is a lack of responsibility or defeatist behavior, be unclutched for a few days. You will then understand and experience that when you are unclutched you will not have a lazy or passive attitude. Mentally you will be silent, but physically you will be active and alive.

Just understand this one simple truth. In order for an animal to breathe, it does not need ego, it does not need an identity or any character. But as a human being, you are afraid that if you drop your identity you will not be able to use your body. You fear that something bad will happen to it.
You are afraid that if you drop your identity, your body will not function smoothly. You have an idea about yourself as ‘I am somebody’s father, I am somebody’s brother, I am somebody’s son.’ This idea that you have, this identity that you carry, this ego that you carry, is not necessary for the smooth functioning of your body and mind. Of course it is very difficult to believe this.
Do you need to think about breathing, making your heart beat, digesting food, or eliminating wastes from your body?
This very fact should help you to realize that your ego is not needed for you to survive. There is something beyond the ego that is keeping you alive and functioning. If your existence depended on your ego what a catastrophe that would be! We would not be able to manage it! We are so much more than our ego, but that too is hard to believe. Continue reading “What is it that is not allowing you to see that you are already unclutched, already complete and bubbling with life ?”
Adi Shankara sings beautifully in the verses Bhaja Govindam:
Within the potter’s wheel’s rotation, The pivot stands still, amidst constant motion, So too a man of perfection is poised, although engaged in action.
When you understand that you are unclutched, suddenly you realize you are like the pivot of the potter’s wheel, unmoving and untouched by the kind of pot being made, the kind of experiences being felt. Understand that you are not the movie being played. You are just the screen on which the movie is projected. The screen is never touched by the play of emotions that appears on it!
The boy sage Ashtavakra tells King Janaka, Verily you are ever free. You are the one seer of all and really ever free. Verily this alone is your bondage, that you see the seer as other than such.When the scene affects the seer, the problem of bondage starts. Your very being is pure. But the moment you start thinking of yourself as someone other than the seer, the problem starts. This is the only bondage that you have. There is no other bondage. Continue reading “Do not try to retain the feeling of bliss that comes with unclutching!”
The ayurvedic science says that we get stomach problems like constipation, etc., only if we constantly hold on to our body. If we can just relax and witness, if we start understanding that we are not the body, we will never have stomach problems. I tell you from my experience with millions of people that I have met and worked with, if you have stomach problems, try this technique for just two or three days. Constantly think that you are not the body. I assure you, you will be liberated from any stomach problem. Your stomach will simply be healed.
If you have stomach problems like ulcer, constipation, irritation, or any problem related to the stomach, this technique will help you. For two or three days, just continuously think, ‘I am not the body,’ ‘I am not the body.’ Just relax and allow the body to function. I tell you, within two or three days you will be healed.
All your allergies and your phobias are nothing but the connection of independent thoughts. The only thing needed is the courage to be unclutched. Please be very clear, I have healed at least one thousand people with allergies in the last three years.
When I was giving discourses in Hyderabad, India, a man complained about twenty five years of allergies to lentils. Even if he ate a spoonful of cooked lentils, his whole body would start swelling. I said, ‘Bring the lentils and eat them in front of me.’
I sat next to him as he ate. I just told him, ‘I’ll take care. I’ll heal. Don’t worry.’ He ate and there was no swelling. The allergy simply disappeared. All that is needed is giving these people the courage to be unclutched. When I said that I would take care, he was able to break that shaft of fear which was causing his allergy!
Let me tell you an incident from the days of my spiritual journey:
I went to a village where there were many elderly Lamas. I asked one villager, ‘Can I see an elderly Lama?’ He said, ‘Go to that field. There is a Lama working there. You can speak to him.’ I went up to the Lama and spoke to him while he was working in the field. Continue reading “How to come out of guilt, fatigue, allergies and phobias ?”
A person once came and asked me, ‘I am haunted by the fear of death. I have so much fear about losing my wealth, and about my death. Give me some solution. Please remove my fear.’
I told him, ‘Please have a cup of coffee.’ He said, ‘What do you mean?’ I said, ‘Just think of having a cup of coffee, then have a cup of coffee.’ He was not able to believe me and asked, ‘How can that help me?’
I asked him, ‘The moment you are able to think of having a cup of coffee and decide to have a cup of coffee, the death fear that is haunting your inner space has left your inner space. Am I right? Even if it is only for a split second, the fact that the thought about coffee has entered your system means that the death fear has been pushed aside!’
Unless the death fear leaves his inner space, he cannot think of having a cup of coffee, right?
We have already seen that only one thought can exist in your inner space at a time. If the older thought comes back, it means that you have consciously brought it back, like bringing back a trashed email to your inbox. So naturally, a simple thought to have a cup of coffee can remove the so-called powerful death fear.
The man said, ‘No, it looks too simple! The death fear definitely comes back, what should I do?’ If it comes back, have one more cup of coffee, that’s all! Continue reading “A simple thought to have a cup of coffee can remove the so-called powerful death fear!”
Please first understand that the thought that you are the body is itself an illusion. That is the first thought shaft that you create and suffer with as a result. If you start experiencing the truth that by your very nature you are illogical, independent, unconnected and unclutched, you will start creating a new, alive, and fresh body.
We abuse and disrespect our bodies in order to satisfy our ego. The moment we start to realize that we are not the body, we allow the body to function naturally. By its very nature, the body heals itself. The body has its own intelligence. However, you have lost connection with that wonderful intelligence. You constantly abuse and torture your body. The moment you start thinking, ‘I am the body,’ you start abusing the body. You do so many things to satisfy the mind that, by their nature, abuse the body. If you can relax from the idea that you are the body, you will start to respect the body. You will make decisions that allow the body intelligence to function beautifully. You will allow the body to live naturally. You will be alive, bubbling and overflowing with energy. The moment you start understanding that you are not the mind, you will have sharp intelligence and spontaneity. Continue reading “By your very nature you are unclutched from body and mind!”
Emotions of fear, desire and guilt are subjective emotions. What I mean by this is that you do not need another person or even an object to create these emotions. Imagine that you are in a sound-proofed room with your eyes closed and with nothing to touch, taste or smell. You can still feel the emotions of fear or desire. But to compare yourself with another person and to feel jealous of him, you need the presence of another person.
Jealousy is therefore an objective emotion.
It needs an object to be activated. Jealousy starts from comparison. We always compare ourselves with others in various fields like looks, wealth, knowledge, name and fame and friends to name a few. When we compare ourselves with others we feel that somebody else has something more than what we have and we get caught in jealousy.
Comparison is the seed and jealousy is the fruit! Continue reading “Why do we compare ourselves with others? Because we forgot that all of the confidence, intelligence, and vibrant energy that we need already exists inside us!”
Just look back at your life.
When was the last time you were happy about something?
When was the last time you wondered about the meaning of life?
Did you look inwards to see who you are or what life is all about?
Did you feel the need to deeply know about the ultimate Truth?
When things go smoothly you just blindly follow the same routine with barely any awareness or consciousness. There is nothing to jolt you into awareness from your routine and you continue without any awareness.
But when pain happens, it makes you look at life objectively. It forces you to look deeper into life, to learn why you react the way you react and seek to uncover the real mystery of life. Pain is a blessing in disguise. It is the key that can open the door to the world of reality. The choice is yours to open the door or not. Continue reading “Feel grateful to suffering and pain because they create the situation for you to search for the truth!”
At the age of 10, in Arunachaleshwara temple in the shrine, Sannidhi of Devi – Unnamalai Amman. I was standing in one corner, suddenly I saw the cosmic geometrical representation. That time I did not know the word, only now, later on I came to know, it is Sri Yantra in the golden, shining, absolute, energy light form. And then, Devi appeared in this very form She is gracing now with Lakshmi and Saraswati. When I had darshan I saw only Devi Bhuvaneshwari. Here she is gracing with Lakshmi and Saraswati. There, when I had darshan, I saw Her only this form – the Ankusha and Pasha and Abhaya and Varada. It’s just too much, too much. Slowly that very geometry and that form, both disappeared into My inner-space. Then I went back to home, carved the deity as I experienced in the stone, carved the Devi, the same way I saw in stone and carved that Sri Chakra the same way I saw in copper plate. This happened. You can see the yantra I carved after the darshan at the age of 10 and this is the deity of the Devi I carved a the age of 10. Actually this happened during Navaratri only. I do not know whether it happened exactly on the 4th day and 5th day and all that. But during the Navaratri time.
Let me enter into the Upanishad. Ishavasya Upanishad. I was expanding continuously. Today I will continue to expand on 16th verse. Recite along with me.
pūṣann-ekarṣe yama sūrya prājāptya। vyūha raśmin samūha।
tejo yat te rūpaṁ kalyāṇa-tamaṁ tat te paśyāmi yo’sāvasau puruṣaḥ so’ ham asmi ॥ 16॥ Continue reading “Never be a beggar even in front of God because anything makes you beggar is not worthy to be entertained in your life!”
Every morning, a father and a son, must be seven or eight-year-old son, both of them go for a walk. Every morning they walk outside their house. One day morning, suddenly, that son started getting frightened seeing an old tree standing in a corner and started crying, ‘Oh, it is a ghost! It is a ghost!’, started shivering, crying, and holding the father, screaming, telling him, ‘Father, please take me away from here! Take me away from here! There is a ghost!’
Please listen, if the father is trying to comfort the child, for the comfort of that child if the father is taking the child away from the tree, I tell you, it is equivalent to me giving upon you! That is the worst thing that can happen in your life! Even if you go to Hell, don’t be given upon by the Guru; you will simply come out.
If you are not given upon by the Guru, even if you go to Hell, you will just come out of Hell Fire untouched. If you are given upon by the Guru, even Heaven will burn you!
There are tons of people who are suffering in Heaven. Indra (ruler of Heaven) himself is suffering in Heaven because he can’t go anywhere else. And Heaven is the most unstable place because of a curse by a rishi. That is why, whenever you feel any pleasure, you will always feel insecurity. Whether you believe it or not, pleasure and insecurity go hand in hand. Understand, if you are not given upon by the Master, even Hell cannot touch you; even if you are in hell, Hell Fire cannot touch you; you will come out of it. If you are given upon by the Master, even Heaven will be the worst hell, suffering. Continue reading “Complete the frightened, arrogant child in you”
