All that exists is energy, declares the first line of Ishavasya Upanishad!

What is this world made up of?

Our five senses of sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch are our gateways to perceiving this world. They tell us that this world is made up of matter or objects in various forms, shapes, colors and qualities. We see ourselves living in a three dimensional world fundamentally made up of the five basic elements – earth, water, fire, air and space. We see all the objects in this world undergoing change with time. They all undergo creation, sustenance and dissolution with the passage of time.

Classical physics tells us that matter is governed by the laws of physics like the three laws of motion, the law of gravity, the laws of fluid dynamics and so on. All objects are considered to be made up of molecules, which are made up of atoms, which in turn are made of three types of particles – protons, neutrons and electrons. We learned all these fundamental things in school. But according to modern science, the world is not fundamentally made up of matter. The fundamental particles are not protons, neutrons and electrons. Continue reading “All that exists is energy, declares the first line of Ishavasya Upanishad!”

Swamiji, ‘‘Whatever you are saying is correct, but…’. The moment you say ‘but’ to Me, you have missed!

When I told the story of Satyakama to a group of people, one person asked me, ‘Maybe these techniques are for highly evolved souls. In that story, the disciple gets enlightened when the master just blesses him. He must have been a highly evolved soul for that to happen. I told that person, ‘No, it is not for highly evolved souls. It is for highly innocent souls!’ Understand this. Highly evolved people don’t need techniques. It is like how I was telling you the other day.

You can be either cunning or intelligent, never both at the same time

In sage Patanjali’s teaching of Ashtanga yoga, the eight techniques described are to be practiced all at once. It is not that if you finish the first technique you are one step higher and ready for the second one. No! Even the first technique is so strong that if you are able to master it and move to the second, you don’t even need the second because you are already done! The first step is yama, which is about codes of behavior. If you are able to master this alone, then you don’t need the remaining steps. You don’t need any further yoga or breath control! So understand this. All eight techniques are individually fulfilling techniques for the sincere seeker. They are not sequential steps. Similarly, techniques such as those given to Satyakama are given to innocent people who are tired of being cunning. Continue reading “Swamiji, ‘‘Whatever you are saying is correct, but…’.

Bholenath is the one whose pure innocent inner space creates the bliss and causeless auspiciousness wherever He is, wherever He happens!

In the Shiva Sutras, Shiva gives us techniques to achieve this innocence. If you follow Shiva’s life as is described in the Hindu mythological stories, you will not be able to see any social or traditional innocence in him. But there will be the pure and ultimate innocence. The place where he lives or the way in which he lives is not directly related to his purity or innocence. Shiva lives in a cemetery where bodies are cremated, surrounded by spirits and ghosts. The word Shiva in Sanskrit means causeless auspiciousness. This causeless auspiciousness, the energy to create bliss wherever he is, wherever he happens, arises out of his innocent inner space.

In the Vedic tradition, there are scriptural writings called Upanishads. The word Upanishad in Sanskrit refers to teachings of a master to his disciples as they sat with him. There are 108 such Upanishads. They are the essence of the enlightenment science handed down by the great masters of the Vedic times.

One of these, the Chandogya Upanishad describes a beautiful story: Continue reading “Bholenath is the one whose pure innocent inner space creates the bliss and causeless auspiciousness wherever He is, wherever He happens!”

Just be in the present by saying a complete ‘yes’ to life, by allowing future to pass through you to become past, to have its own course

In the Vedic tradition, Shiva, the lord of destruction, is considered auspicious. The very name ‘Shiva’ means ‘causeless auspiciousness’. You will be surprised to know that in Sanskrit if you literally translate the word for destruction, ‘samhara’, it does not mean destruction, it means rejuvenation. The word that we use commonly for destruction actually means creating space for new things to happen. Even destruction can be looked at from a different dimension of rejuvenating or creating a new space for better things to happen.

Even the disease which happens to your body just creates a new space so that you can start having a new body and so that you can get ready to live a new life. You can just restart the whole process. See, actually restarting the whole process can heal many of your wounds. There are some wounds that can be healed by falling asleep and coming back. You will forget them when you wake up. There are some wounds that can’t be healed by falling asleep and coming back. At that point you decide, ‘Let me restart the whole process, let me just start afresh.’ Then you allow the body to have some disease so that the rejuvenation process can start.

According to the vedic tradition no experience goes waste. Every time when you move from one moment to the next moment you are expanding, you are growing, and you are learning. If you look from this angle even your death is auspicious because you are going to the next step. Only if you are not clear about the next step you will feel the fear of death.

Whatever you think in your last moment, you become that because you are consciousness!

There is a beautiful story in the Upanishads, the sacred vedic texts:

A rishi called Jadabharatha somehow became attached to a deer he had rescued. He was living the life of a renunciate but he got attached to this deer.

From morning till night, he used to spend his time taking care of that deer. When he was dying, he was not able to forget the animal. He started worrying about the deer, ‘Oh! Who will take care of the deer? What will happen to it after my death?’

When he died, in the next birth, he was born as a deer.

Beautifully the verse in the Upanishad says that whatever you think in your last moment, you become that!

Some people think very cleverly, ‘Let me live my whole life the way I want to live. In the last few moments, I will remember god and chant His name and enter heaven somehow.’ Please be very clear, only that which you thought of in your whole life, will come up when you leave the body. Don’t think that at that last moment you can play the game!

No! Continue reading “Whatever you think in your last moment, you become that because you are consciousness!”

We are not able to face death because we are not able to face the ever-changing nature of life!

             Once, in USA, a young lady asked the great Indian monk Swami Vivekananda, ‘What is life?’ Swami Vivekananda said, ‘Come with me to India. I will teach you.’ She asked, ‘What will you teach me?’   He said, ‘I will teach you how to die.’

The question is about life but the answer is about death! It seems strange! What Swami Vivekananda is saying is that if you know the secret of death, the quality of your life will be different. Your very understanding and attitude towards everything will change.

We can actually use our lives to prepare for death. We do not have to wait for the pain of seeing someone’s death or the shock of being faced with a critical illness to force us to look into the meaning of life.

If you know how to die, you know how to live. Living and leaving are two sides of the same thing.

Death is not a mere incident at the end of your life. It is a profound knowing. If you know how to die, you know how to live. Living and leaving are two sides of the same thing. Your life will be totally different once you understand death.

By whom [kena] willed and caused [iṣitam], does the mind go towards and thinks

We need to question – ” Whom is creating the inner image in me?” When we ask this right question, our root pattern starts losing power.

Our inner image is our mind’s movement towards an object, which gets formed and powerlessness takes us over. The inner image creates pain and the outer image creates suffering. Our bodies are God’s temple to be kept in the space of COMPLETION. Completion activates our four powers. which are – Vaak Shakti experienced through Integrity. Mano Shakti experienced through Authenticity. Buddhi Shakti experienced by Responsibility. Jiva Shakti experienced by Enriching. We need to manifest all these powers by pure questioning.

First Mantra of Kena Upanishad:

keneṣitaṁ patati preṣitaṁ manaḥ kena prāṇaḥ prathamaḥ praiti yuktaḥ |
keneṣitāṁ vācamimāṁ vadanti cakṣuḥ śrotaṁ ka u devo yunakti || 1 || 

By whom [kena] willed and caused [iṣitam], does the mind go towards and thinks its object? By whom directed [preṣitam] and united with which, does the first vital life–energy, the chief cause [prathaṁ prāṇa] comes forth towards its activities? At whose will does this speech gets activated and speaks? Enlivened and directed by what luminous, divine power (by what invisible cause), indeed, do the eyes and the ears engage in their functions?”

Dhīrās are those who discover the ear of the ear, mind of the mind, speech of the speech, prana of the prana, and realizing that, they achieve, the immortal eternal!

I welcome all of you with My love and respects. I’ll enter into the 2nd verse of Kenapanishad.

śrotrasya śrotraṁ manaso mano yadvāco ha vācaṁ sa u prāṇasya prāṇaḥ |

cakṣuṣaś-cakṣur-atimucya dhīrāḥ pretyāsmāllokād-amṛtā bhavanti || 2 ||

Understand, the most sophisticated of answering a question is, giving you the methodology you will find experience, the most sophisticated way of answering a question is as an answer giving you a methodology, through which you will find, the experience.

śrotrasya śrotraṁ manaso mano yad |

The whole verse is not giving you any point you can hang around, any visualization, any possibility for imagination, no. It’s very clear. Your pure questioning is turned towards you; your pure questioning is turned towards you. Listen, pure questioning is one of the most powerful way of integrating you.

Pure questioning is one of the most powerful way of integrating your intellect, mind, emotion, thought currents, everything, body. Continue reading “Dhīrās are those who discover the ear of the ear, mind of the mind, speech of the speech, prana of the prana, and realizing that, they achieve, the immortal eternal!”

Be integrated to the Divine principles which you cherish!

śrotrasya śrotraṁ manaso mano yad vāco ha vācaṁ sa u prāṇasya prāṇaḥ |
cakṣuṣaś-cakṣur-atimucya dhīrāḥ pretyāsmāllokād-amṛtā bhavanti || 2 ||

Listen. Listen carefully.

The whole Upanishad verse does not finger towards something, it does not pinpoint anything.

It is the ear of the ears, that by which one hears, the mind of the mind, speech of the speech, the prana of prana, chakshu, eye of the eye. Understanding this, experiencing this, having liberating themselves, the enlightened beings. Here the Upanishad is using the word – Dhīrāh, means, please understand, Veera is a person who is able put  the knife in the right place on the enemy and kill him. Dhīrā is the person who is able to put the right understanding in the brain and conquer himself and achieve enlightenment.

Listen, Veera is the external, Dheera is internal. Veera is micro-management of the actions, dheera is the micro- management of the being.

dhīrāḥ pretyāsmāllokād-amṛtā bhavanti |  

Whenever, with ordinary human logic you try to define God, you mess up so badly, you give birth to demonic ideologies, demonic ideologies means, which kills millions of people who don’t accept the ideology and who accept the ideology, that is what is demonic. Understand. Continue reading “Be integrated to the Divine principles which you cherish!”

With a powerful, integrated will, declaring completion is the ultimate Completion technique!

I just enjoy every word, every word.

anirākaraṇamstva-nirākaraṇam me’stu |

anirākaraṇamstva-nirākaraṇam me’stu |

Let me have Completion. Understand, the most powerful Completion process is your Will and your Declaration. Your WILL, with a powerful, integrated will, declaring it, is the ultimate Completion technique.

If you are not ready to do that, then you need to be tortured with mirror. Gazing at your own face in the worst sufferings and worries in the mirror again and again is the most horror movie you would have ever seen in your life. I think many of the IA grads can really understand and connect immediately with what I am saying. In all the horrible moods of your past expressing through your face, you have to be gazing at the mirror. That’s the most horror movie. Its not a technique, it’s a method to terrorize you. So your WILL is awakened, you declare Completion, understand.

At least 200 techniques Sadāshiva is giving for Completion for various incompletions and various methods, process, procedures, systems, techniques for various background people and various genders for variety of people. But let Me put it on record – the most powerful, most powerful completion technique is – DECLARING WITH YOUR WILL.

If you are my disciple, you don’t need any spiritual practice, you only need to manifest all the seeds I have put inside you. The feeling connection you cherish has tremendous impact over you!

Please understand, if you feel connected to a Yoga Teacher, naturally he will have so much of impact over you, you will have health. He will somehow make you do Yoga. He will somehow make you bend again and again, by talking or whatever. He will make make you do Yoga and you will have health.

If you have feeling connection with teacher who teaches you stotras and bhajans, kirtans, somehow he will make you feel the devotion because constantly he will be sharing his thought current and he will do it. So with whom you entertain feel connection matters.

Be careful about with whom you are opening your heart and when you find the right person, don’t wait to open your being.

The moment you know right person is in front, don’t just grasp, just grab. Grasping is too decent word. When you know the right person is in front, don’t be too decent, be raw, just grab. Otherwise you may be wasting your life in the name of decency.

Understand, to whom you open your being and feel connected is very important.

The moment you decide to be My disciple, decide to entertain feeling connection to Me, cherish your bhakti towards Me, understand, I have put the whole Science of Oneness in the complete seed form inside you. You do not need any spiritual practice to achieve them. You just have to declare to start manifesting them, you just need to declare and allow them to manifest in your life, in your situations, everyday again and again. I tell you, when you declare and start manifesting even the intelligence you require for further manifestations –  I will send it along with it. You don’t have to think, “to build 24 inch biceps, I have to lift 20 kg. In each hand, I can only lift only 2 kg, how will I lift 20 kg and build the biceps?” No. Start with 2 kg, that strength which you develop with 2 will take care of you lifting 5, the strength you develop further will take care of you lifting 10.
