There is only the one Self.
An unchanging, unmoving silence.
It is not waiting.
And It is not contemplating.
It is not reflecting.
It is not inquiring.
It is not resting.
All this could be perceived as modes of the mind itself.
What is that which is not in gear?
It is not a state.
It is not in between states.
It is not the gap between thoughts.
It is not a gap.
It cannot be done or undone.
For Itself, there is no such thing as practice.
No such thing as contemplators, meditators or attainers of It.
Hidden, yet nothing can hide It.
Revealed, yet nothing can see It.
Self-knowing, yet It is without knowledge.
Self-realised, yet It is without mind.
Blessing itself, yet It is beyond duality.
Being, yet It is beyond being.
Unfathomable, unconquerable, ungraspable.
Who or what is there?
Beyond sin and beyond righteousness.
It announces Itself as the sense 'I am' inside the body.
But It is even beyond 'I' and beyond body.
Ungraspable, yet attention and the pure intellect
may recognise and acknowledge It.
Being revealed but It is not revealing.
Recognising Its all-pervasiveness, joy fills the Heart.
Intelligence dances.
Peace is very happy.
The universes prostrate themselves,
yet their Lord they cannot see.

Shiva Sahasra Namam - Thousand Names of Lord Shiva from Mahabharata


Translation & Transliteration by P. R. Ramachander

There are two versions of Shiva sahasranama-one in lInga Purana (Being taught by Lord Krishna to sage Markandeya) and the other which occurs in Anushasanika Parva of Mahabaratha.
In the Mahabaratha version (which I am giving here) Yudishtra after hearing the Vishnu Sahasranama from Bheeshma requests him also to teach the thousand names of Lord Shiva. Bheeshma expresses his inability to the same and requests Lord Krishna to teach it to Yudishtra. Then Lord Krishna who has learnt it from Sage Upamanyu teaches it to Yudishtra. A bhashya (explanation) for this was written by7 Sri Chathurthara Neela Kanda called “Bharatha bhava pradheepam”. Based on this Sri.N.Subramanya Iyer (lovingly called “Anna (elder brother) by his admirers wrote a detailed interpretation in Tamil which was published initially by the Sarada Peetham, Sringeri. Later they gave the publishing rights to Ramakrishna Mutt of Madras. My feeble attempt, to give an English meaning to this Shiva Sahasranama is based on this great book. I have not attempted to give meaning with interpretation as done in the above book.
This book gives 1008 names of Lord Shiva. While 45 names are repeated twice, 11 are repeated thrice and three names are repeated four times. Readers may observe that different meanings are given to these repetitions.
Mangala Charanam
Shuklam Baradaram Vishnum, Sasi Varnam Chatur Bhujam,
Prasanna Vadanan Dyayet, Sarva Vignoba Santhaye 1

Dressed in white you are,
Oh, all pervading one,
And glowing with the colour of moon,
With four arms, you are, the all knowing one
I meditate on your ever-smiling face,
And pray, “Remove all obstacles on my way”.

Namosthuthe vyasa vishala budhe,
Phullaravindaayatha pathra nethra,
Yena thwaya bhaaratha thaila poorna,
Prajwalitho gnanamaya pradheepa. 2

My salutations to sage Vyasa,
Who had all compassing intellect,
And who has broad eyes like the lotus leaf.
Was not this great lamp full of wisdom,
Filled up by the oil of Bharatha, lit by you?

Vande Shambum umapathim sura gurum vande jagatkaranam,
Vande pannaga bhooshanam mrugadharam, vande pasoonaam pathim,
Vande surya sasanka vahni nayanam, vande mukunda priyam,
Vande bhaktha janasrayam cha varadam, Vande shivam sankaram. 3

I salute the great God Shambhu,
Who is the consort of Uma,
Who is the teacher of devas,
I salute the cause of this universe,
I salute who wears snake as ornament,
Who caries a deer in his hand,
I salute the Lord of all beings,
I salute him who has sun, moon and fire as eyes,
I salute him who is dear to Mukunda,
I salute him who is the refuge of his devotees,
Who is the one who gives them great status,
And I salute Shiva and Shankara.
Poorva Bhaga - Early Part
Yudhishtra Uvacha:-
Thwayaapagheya naamani sruthaniha jagatpathe,
Pithamahesaaya vibhor namanyaa chakshwa sambhave. 1
Bhabhrave viswaroopaya, mahabhagyam cha thathwatha,
Surasura gurou deve shankaravyaktha yonaye. 2

Yudhishtra asked:-
Oh my dearest grandpa,
Be pleased to tell me the various names,
Of him who is the lord of the universe,
Who is Shambhu with a gold coloured body,
Whose form is of the universe,
Who is the teacher of Asuras and devas,
Who is the god of all devas,
Who does all good,
And who is the cause of the eternal basis,
And also his fame,
As you have heard from others.

Bheeshma Uvacha:-
Asakthoham gunaan vakthum maha devasya dheematha,
Yo hi sarva gatho na cha sarvathra drusyathe. 3

Bheeshma replied:-
Incapable I am to tell about the properties,
Of the great God who is very great,
For he is seen everywhere but seen nowhere.

Brahma Vishnu suresaanaam srushtaa cha prabhureva cha,
Brahmaadaya pisachaantha yam hi deva upasathe. 4

He is the one who created Brahma, Vishnu and other devas,
He is their Lord and he is worshipped by,
Brahma , devas, ghosts and others.

Prakrutheenaam parathwena purushasya cha ya para,
Chinthyathe yo yogavidhbhi rishibhi Thathwa darshibhi.,
Aksharam para Brahma asacha sadasacha ya. 5

He is greater than nature and the masculine concept,
He is being meditated upon by great sages who know the truth,
He is the causal universe, cause as well as the effect.

Prakruthim purusham chaiva kshobhayithwa tswathejasa,
Brahmana masrujath thasmad Dheva dheva prajapathi. 6

He who is the God of gods and God of all beings,
Through his power destabilizes Purusha and nature ,
And creates Brahma out of it.

Ko hi shaktho gunaan vakthum deva devasya dheematha,
Garbha janma jara yuktho marthyo mruthyu samanvitha. 7

Which man who is subject of birth, growing up and death,
Would be capable of telling the properties,
Of him who is the God of gods and knower of all?

Ko hi saktho bhavam gnathum madhwidha parameshwaram,
Rithe narayanath puthra Shanka chakra Gada dharath. 8

Oh Son, Is it possible for an ordinary mortal to know.
That great god like him , rather it is possible,
For the Lord Narayana who carries mace, conch and wheel,
To know about Sankara who is the greatest God.

Esha vidhwan guna sreshto Vishnu parama durjaya,
Divya chakshur maha theja veekshyathe yoga chakshsha. 9

That Vishnu who knows ever thing,
Who has greatest qualities,
Who cannot be won over by anybody,
Who has special holy sight,
And who is greatly resplendent,
Sees him by his eyes of yoga.

Rudra bhakthya thu krishnena jagat vyaptham mahathmana,
Tham prasadhya thadha devam bhadaryam kila bharatha. 10

Arthath priya harathwam cha sarva lokeshu vai yadhaa,
Prapthavaaneva rajendra suvarnaakshan maheswaraath. 11

The great Lord Krishna, due to his devotion to Rudra,
Has spread all over the universe, Oh Bharatha, Oh king of kings,
After making Lord Shiva pleased by his penance in Bhadrinath,
He has attained the state of being more dear,
Than all the worlds and all aspects of knowledge.

Poornam varsha sahasram thu thaptha vaanesha maadhava,
Prasadhya varadam devam chara chara gurum shivam. 12

This Lord Madhava has done penance for a full thousand years,
And has pleased him who is the teacher of all beings,
And the giver of all boons.

Yuge yuge thu krushnena thoshitho vai maheswara,
Bhakthya paramaya chaiva prathi sruthwa mahatmana. 13

Lord Parameshwara becomes pleased and happy
Eons after eons, by this Krishna who is devotee of Lord Shiva.

Iswarya yadrusam thasya jagadyoner mahatmana,
Thadayam drushtavaan sakshath puthrartho Harir achyutha. 14

This Krishna who is Hari, who did penance for getting a son*,
Has seen the greatness of Maheswara who is the origin of the world.

*(Lord Krishna did penance to get a son out of Jhambhavati, the daughter of Jhambhavan)

Yasyath paratharam chaiva naanyam pasyami bharatha,
Vykyathum deva devasya shaktho naamanyaseshatha. 15

Hey Bharatha, I do not find any one else suitable,
To tell you about the various names of the god of gods.

Esha shaktho maha bahur vakthum bhagawatho gunaan,
Vibhuthim chaiva karthsynyena sathyaam Maheeswari nrupa. 16

Oh king , that great armed one ,
Is the one capable of telling the properties of God,
And capable of fully telling you truthfully,
The powers of The great God.

Sura sura guro deva vishno thwam vakthumarhasi,
Shivaaya shiva roopaya yanma aprucha yudishtra. 17

Hey Teacher of Devas and asuras, Hey Vishnu,
It is but very proper, that you tell,
About the great god, which Yudishtra asked.

Naamnam sahasram devasya thandinaa Brhama vadinaa,
Niveditham brhma loke brahmano yath puraa Abhvath. 18

Dwaipayana prabhu thasyasthadha cheme thpodhana,
Rishaya suvrutha danthaa srunvanthu gadahsthava. 19

Those thousand names of God told by sage Dandi,
Who was the knower of Brahmam,
Which was told in the land of Brahmas,
With lord Brahma as a witness,
May please be heard by these sages,
Like Dvaipayana who have done great penance,
And have won control over their sense organs.

Vasudeva Uvacha:-
Na gathi karmaanam saakya vethumeesasya thathwatha.,
Hiranyagarbha pramukha deva sendraa maharshaya. 20

Vasudeva told:-
Neither gods like Brahma and Indra,
Nor the several great sages,
Are capable of understanding,
The philosophy behind the great lord.

Na vidhuryasya nidhana maadhim vaa sookshma darshana,
Sa kadham nama mathrena sakhyo gnathum sathaam gathi. 21

How can one understand Him,
Just by the mention of his name,
Who is capable of seeing minutest things,
Who does not have an end nor beginning,
And who is the refuge of saints.

Thasyaha masuragnasya kamschid bhagawatho gunaan,
Bhavathaam Keerthiyishyaami vrathesaya yathathadam. 22

I would tell you, few properties of that great God,
Who is the God of all penances and,
Who is the destroyer of asuras.

Vaisampayana Uvacha:-
Evamukthwa thu bhagwan gunaamsthasya mahaathmana,
Upasprusya suchir bhoothwa, kadhyamaasa dheematha. 23

Vaisampayana told:-
After telling like this Lord Krishna,
Sat down did the act f cleaning himself,
And started telling about that great Lord,
Who was the Lord of all good natured.

Vasudeva Uvacha:-
Thatha sa prayatho boothwa mama thaha Yudishtra,
Pranjali praha viprarishinaam samgrahamaditha. 24

Vasudeva told:-
Oh my cousin Yudishtra who is dear to me,
The sage Abhimanyu with folded hands,
After concentrating his mind in to one,
Told me about the several names of Shiva.

Upamanyu Uvacha:-
Brahma prokthou rishi prokthou veda vedanga sambhavai,
Sarva lokeshu –vikhyatham sthuthyam sthoshyami namabhi. 25

Sage Upamanyu told:-
I pray him , using those names,
Which have been read by Brahma and other sages,
Which have arisen from Vedas and Vedangas,
And which are famous throughout the world.

Mahadhbhir vihithaisathyai Sidhai sarvartha sadhakhai,
Rishinaa thandinaa bhakthya kruthai –veda kruthathmana. 26

These names have been praises by the great,
They are true and give occult powers,
They help you to get any job done,
And have been told by Sage Dandi,
Whose heart is immersed in Vedas.

Yadhokthai Sadhubhi khyathai munibhisthathwa darshibhi,
Pravaram pradhamam swarga sarva bhootha hitham shubham. 27

I pray ,who does good to all beings,
Who is worshipped by good me,
Who is worshipped by sages and philosophers,
Who is the first among all,
And who can grant us heaven,
Using those famous , well known names.

Sruthai sarvathra jagathi Brhma loka avatharithai,
Sathyai sthath pramam , brhma brhma proktham sanathanam,
Vakshye yadu kula sreshta srunushvava hitho mama. 28

Oh Chief of the clan of Yadus,
Please here from me with concentration those names
Which came from the world of Brahma,
Which are found based in the Vedas,
Which are every where,
And which are truth
And I salute that great God who is Brahmam,
And is worshipped by Lord Brahma.

Varayainam bhavam devam bhakthasthvam parameshvaram,
Thena they sraviyishyami yahad brahma sanathanam. 29

Oh Krishna , who is his devotee,
Please worship that Parameshwara,
Who is the source of the world,
And Who is the god of gods,
And for that purpose,
I am making you hear the following.

Na sakyam vistharath kruthsnam vakthum sarvasya kenachith,
Yukthenaapi vibhoothinaa Mapi varsha sathair api. 30

Even though one has all abilities and fame,
It is just impossible for them to narrate fully,
All the greatness of Shiva even in hundred years.

Yasyadhir Madhya mantham cha surair api na gamyahe,
Kasthasya shakthuyadwaktham gunaan karsnyena madhava. 31

Hey Madhava,, Who will have the ability ,
To describe in full, the qualities of him,
Whose head or foot was not found by the devas?

Kinthu devasya mahatha samkshipthartha padaksharam,
Shakthi thascharitham vakshye prasadathasya dheematha. 32

In spite of that I would tell you in short,
According to my limited capacity,
Using limited words and letters,
The story of him, who is the source of wisdom,
Because of his grace and blessing.

Aaprapya thu thatho anugnaam na sakya sthothumeeswara,
Yada thennabhyanugnath sthutho vai sa thada maya. 33

Since it is not feasible to pray him ,
Without his permission and grace,
I was able to sing his prayers,
When I was blessed by him.

Anaadi nidanasyaaham jagadyoner mahatmana,
Naamnaam kanchith samudhesyam vakshamya vaktha yonina. 34

I will tell you a few names approximately ,
Of that great one who is the origin of the world,
And who cannot find origin for himself.

Varadasya varenayasya viswaroopasya dheematha,
Srunu naamnam chayam Krishna yaduktham padma yonina. 35

Please hear the collection of names ,
As revealed by Lord Brahma,
Who is the greatest among those who give boons,
Who is the form of the universe,
And who is personification of wisdom.

Dasa nama sahasraani yaanyaaha prapithamaha,
Thaani nirmadhya manasa dhadhno druthamivodhbudham. 36

These thousand names are the result of churning,
Similar to getting butter from curd,
Out of the ten thousand names told by Brahma.

Gire saaram yadha hema pushpasaaram yadha madhu,
Gruthatsaaram yadha mandastha Dhaithath sara samudrutham. 37

This essence has been taken after serious thought,
Like the gold is taken out of mines,
Honey is taken out of flowers,
And ghee is taken out of butter.

Sarva paapahamidham chathur veda samanvitham,
Prayathnenadhi ganthavyam dharyanj cha prayathathmana. 38

This removes all committed sins,
Is one with the four great Vedas,
Could be understood by great effort,
And could be committed to memory through effort.

Sarva bhoothathma bhoothasya harasyamitha thejasa,
Ashtothara sahasram thu naamnam sarvasya may srunu,
Yacchuthwa manuja vyagra sarvaan kaamaanvapsyathi. 39

Hey tiger among men, be pleased to hear from me,
Those one thousand eight names of Him,
Who is the soul of all souls,
Who has greatly remarkable prowess,
And who is called “hara(stealer)” and Sarva(all)”,
Because he attracts every thing to himself,
And attain fruition of all your desires.

Sati and Uma

Although Shiva is worshipped as the ruler of the Three Worlds, his power, or Sahkti, is represented by his wife, the Devi (Goddess).
Shiva married Sati against the wishes of her father, Daksha. When Daksha performed a ritual sacrifice invited all the Deva, but not Shiva. Sati was hurt by the insult to her husband, and when she questioned her father, received only harsh words. Sati, devastated, fixed her mind on her Lord, and invoking the Tapas' flames immolated her body in them.
Sati, in her love and devotion to Shiva, took rebirth as Parvati to be with Him again.
In other tales it is said that Uma Haimavati (uma = light), looking at Shiva in despair for Sati's death, took pity on His endless grief and revealed herself as Parvati, to comfort Him.

Uma - The Golden Goddess

Once a rishi was imparting to his student's spiritual knowledge. When a lesson was over, the students were free to ask questions on the day’s lesson. One day the students asked: "Sir, who makes the mind desire? Who makes the eyes to see, the ears hear and the tongue speak?"
The rishi said: "The One Great God causes all these things. He is everywhere. He is the source of all things. He who understands this truth becomes immortal." But the students said they did not understand him. So the rishi told them a story.
Once the Devas won a battle against the Asuras. The Devas, however, did not realise that it was the Great God who made them win. The Devas thought they won the war by their own strength and in their ignorance they became proud of what they had achieved. The Supreme God or Brahman wanted to cure them of their pride, so he suddenly appeared before them. The Devas could not say who it was, all that they could know was that it was a wonderful Being, so they decided to find out who it was.
First they sent Agni, the God of fire, to find out whom it was. When Agni went to the Strange Being, the latter asked, "Who are you?" Agni replied: "I am Agni, the powerful. I can burn anything in this or other worlds. I know everything!" The Supreme Being said: "Oh! Is that the fact? Look, here is a blade of grass. Burn it, if you can!" "Pooh!" said Agni and rushed upon the blade of grass. Try however much he did, he could not even touch the edge of the grass. Ashamed of his failure, he returned to the Devas and admitted his defeat.
The Devas next sent Vayu, the wind good, to find out whom that Strange Being was. "Who are you?" asked the Being. "I am Vayu, the great. I can sweep away anything in this world with my power." "Can you really," said the Being. "Please sweep away this blade of grass. Vayu rushed at it, but the straw did not move an inch. Vayu too returned to the Devas and reported his failure.
Then the Devas sent Indra, their King, to the Strange Being. When Indra went, the Strange Being was no longer to be seen, but in its place stood a charming woman. She was Uma, the Goddess of spiritual knowledge. Indra asked Uma: "Great Lady! Who was that Strange Being that was here!" Uma replied: "Fool! It was Brahman, the Supreme Being. It was he that won the battle against the Asuras for you. Not knowing it, you bragged amongst yourselves. He came here to teach you how worthless your powers are without His grace, and to cure you of your pride!"
On hearing this, Indra went back and reported this matter to the Devas. Then the Devas realised their mistake and begged to be forgiven. Later, they learnt the sacred knowledge about God, in humility.
The rishi said finally: "This knowledge comes in a flash. We must pursue and develop it further. That is our object in life; for, God is Truth. All knowledge is His limbs. Penance and doing good to others are the means of furthering that knowledge."
This story occurs in the great Upanishad called Kena.

The mind is like an inner journalist
that attacks your self-image and then reports about it.
But all the time there is a higher seeing present
that is not caught in the bubble of this play.
It simply Is. It is pure non-dual awareness.
It has no conflict with anything.
It is what you truly are.
It is you. You are It.

Nanak's father thought that he did not like sedentary work. Therefore he said to Nanak, "O dear son! Ride on a horse and do traveling business. This will suit you nicely." Nanak replied, "Revered father! My trade is divine knowledge. The profits are the purseful of good deeds with which I can certainly reach the domain of the Lord."

Then Kalu Chand told Nanak: "If you do not like trade or business, you may serve in some office." Nanak replied, "I am already a servant of God. I am endeavoring to do my duty honestly and whole-heartedly in the service of my Lord. I carry out His behests implicitly. I desire fervently to get the reward of divine grace from the Lord by serving Him untiringly and incessantly." On hearing this, the father became silent and retired from there.

His father, Kalu, tried his best to turn Nanak's mind towards worldly matters. He put Nanak in the work of looking after cultivation of the land. Nanak did not pay any attention to his work. He meditated even in the fields. He went out to tend the cattle, but centered his mind on the worship of God. The cattle trespassed into neighbor's field. Kalu rebuked Nanak for his idleness.
Nanak replied, "I am not idle, but am busy in guarding my own fields." Kalu asked him, "Where are your fields?" Nanak replied, "My body is a field. The mind is the plowman. Righteousness is the cultivation. Modesty is water for irrigation. I have sown the field with the seed of the sacred Name of the Lord. Contentment is my field's harrow. Humility is its hedge. The seeds will germinate into a good crop with love and devotion. Fortunate is the house in which such a crop is brought! O sir, mammon will not accompany us to the next world. It has infatuated the whole world, but there are few who understand its delusive nature."

Then Kalu put him in charge of a small shop. Nanak distributed the things to Sadhus and poor people. He would give away in charity whatever he could lay hands on in his father's house and in the shop. Nanak said, "My shop is made of time and space. Its store consists of the commodities of truth and self-control. I am always dealing with my customers, the Sadhus and Mahatmas, contact with whom is very profitable indeed.

When Nanak was a boy of seven, he was sent to Gopal Pandha to learn Hindi. The teacher told Nanak to read a book. Nanak replied, "What will it avail to know all and not have a knowledge of God?" Then the teacher wrote the Hindi alphabets for him on a wooden slate. Nanak said to the teacher, "Please tell me, sir, what books have you studied? What is the extent of your knowledge?" Gopal Pandha replied, " I know mathematics and the accounts necessary for shop-keeping." Nanak replied, "This knowledge will not in any way help you in obtaining freedom." The teacher was very much astonished at the words of the boy. He told him, " Nanak, tell me something which could help me in the attainment of salvation." Nanak said, "O teacher! Burn worldly love, make its ashes into ink and make the intellect into a fine paper. Now make the love of God your pen, and your heart the writer, and under the instructions of your Guru, write and meditate. Write the Name of the Lord and His praises and write, 'He has no limit this side or the other'. O teacher! Learn to write this account." The teacher was struck with wonder.

One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru:

Listen, O Dear Beloved Saints, to my prayer.

Without the Lord, no one is liberated.

O mind, do only deeds of purity; the Lord is the only boat to carry you across. Other entanglements shall be of no use to you.

True living is serving the Divine, Supreme Lord God; the Guru has imparted this teaching to me.

Do not fail in love with trivial things; in the end, they shall not go along with you.

Worship and adore the Lord with your mind and body, O Beloved Saint of the Lord; in the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy, you shall be released from bondage.

In your heart, hold fast to the Sanctuary of the lotus feet of the Supreme Lord God; do not place your hopes in any other support.

He alone is a devotee, spiritually wise, a meditator, and a penitent, O Nanak, who is blessed by the Lord's Mercy.

' Life is Like a Mango Tree '

The other day, someone here in the US asked me how an enlightened being eats a mango. If that sounds like a silly question to you – mangoes are not a mundane subject. When I was a child, for four months in a year, mango was the religion in India. During the season, I used to be on a mango diet. There was nothing but mango in our stomachs. When mango madness took over, there was mango all over the faces, on our clothes; we smelled of mango and so did the whole house – everything was mango.
I even missed examinations because I was busy studying mangoes. Around Mysore, there were a lot of wild mangoes and mango plantations. I spent almost five, six years exploring the locations and varieties of mangoes, and had all the mango trees in the area mapped in my mind. Mangoes naturally come in different flavors, and their complexion and the way you experience them changes from March to end of June, July. This happened when I was in the pre-university course, which is considered crucial, because what kind of marks one gets in the pre-university decides the future of one’s educational trajectory. The term was over, but we were supposed to study harder to make sure we get maximum marks. That was a period of time when even the family restricted our movement, which was a very difficult thing for me to put up with. The special classes in the college gave me the opportunity to leave the house.
It was the beginning of the mango season. My friends and I assembled at the college. I was the consultant as to where to find what kind of mangoes. We discussed where to go and were just about to leave when the principal of the college came down and took us to task. His office was on the first floor, right above where we were standing. He must have looked down and listened to our discussion. He said, “What? The examination is just another twenty days away, and you are going after mangoes?” Then I told him, “Examinations come twice a year. Mangoes come only once a year.”
There were over 300 varieties of mangoes in South India, mostly grown wild and on a few farms. Today, many of the varieties that we had then have disappeared. Since mangoes are grown in increasingly large farms, the varieties that are grown are chosen based on commercial aspects, like shelf life, and so on. This not only applies to mango varieties – a number of fruits and vegetables we had in India when we were children are not available anymore. They have been wiped out by the multi-national agricultural conglomerates and their seeds, which dominate agriculture today and could destroy the biodiversity of this planet.
Mangoes have always been a part of this culture. Even gods were described as eating mangoes. Probably most of you know the famous story of Ganapati and Kartikeya, the children of Adiyogi and Parvati, competing over a sweet, luscious mango. If I delve deeper into the subject of mangoes, I want to go back to India! To me, what is being served as mangoes elsewhere are not really mangoes. If you already like the mangoes that are grown in other regions of the world, you must travel to India and spend some time there during the season to taste Indian mangoes. I could tell you exactly where to go, what varieties of mangoes to eat, and how to eat them. Mango eating needs a lot of training. You must know which mango to bite which way. These days, even the majority of Indians do not know this anymore, because they all cut and eat them.
If you look at a mango tree in February, March, there will be nothing but green leaves. Then, some small, innocuous looking flowers will bloom. Suddenly, one morning, you will see the tree is full of tiny little mangoes. From then on, they will be growing bigger by the day, until they are full of juice and sweetness. But initially, four, five years, nothing happens. You have to wait for years for a mango tree to bear fruits for the first time. It would be foolish to think after a couple of years, “Nothing happened, so I’m going to chop down the tree and throw it away.”
This is how life is made – first you have to establish a solid basis. This takes time. The same applies to your sadhana. The seed is good – the very source of creation is within it. If the source of creation finds expression, you become an utterly beautiful piece of creation. You are given the raw material – what you make out of it is up to you. Once the seed is planted, don’t dig it out after some time to see if it sprouts. Just keep watering it every day. Don’t wait in front of the mango tree, praying for fruits to come. And don’t try to pluck the mango prematurely. When it is time, the fruition will happen quickly. One day, the mango will drop on your head.

This is what yoga-sthah kuru karmani means. Establish yourself in yoga – then act. Beautiful things will come out of it.

Love & Grace,

5. Body, mind, etc., are essentially separate from the Soul.

' Acharanga Sutra '

I so pronounce that all the omniscients of all times, state, speak, propagate, and elaborate that nothing which breathes, which exists, which lives, or which has essence or potential of life, should be destroyed or ruled over, or subjugated, or harmed, or denied of its essence or potential.

This truth, propagated by the self-knowing omniscients, after understanding all there is in universe, is pure, undefileable, and eternal.

In support of this Truth, I ask you a question - "Is sorrow or pain desirable to you ?" If you say "yes it is", it would be a lie. If you say, "No, It is not" you will be expressing the truth. What I want to add to the truth expressed by you is that, as sorrow or pain is not desirable to you, so it is to all which breath, exist, live or have any essence of life. To you and all, it is undesirable, and painful, and repugnant.

That which you consider worth destroying is (like) yourself. That which you consider worth disciplining is (like) yourself. That which you consider worth subjugating is (like) yourself. That which you consider worth killing is yourself. The result of actions by you has to be borne by you, so do not destroy anything.

The ancients when they wished to exemplify illustrious virtue throughout the empire, first ordered well their States. Desiring to maintain well their States, they first regulated their families. Wishing to regulate their families, they first cultivated themselves. Wishing to cultivate themselves, they first rectified their purpose. Wishing to rectify their purpose, they first sought to think sincerely. Wishing to think sincerely, they first extended their knowledge as widely as possible. This they did by investigation of things.

By investigation of things, their knowledge became extensive. Their knowledge being extensive, their thoughts became sincere. Their thoughts being sincere, their purposes were rectified. Their purposes being rectified, they cultivated themselves. They being cultivated, their families were regulated. Their families being regulated, their States were rightly governed. Their States being rightly governed, the empire was thereby tranquil and prosperous.

For the completion of life's work, it requires the whole of life, every deflection from virtue marring by so much the perfection of the whole. Saintliness lies not in purity alone, but in rounded fullness of the well-planned and well-spent life; and life becomes more a thing of beauty if extended to old age.

One of the disciples asked Confucius, "O, venerable Master! Please tell me what constitutes social virtue." Confucius replied, "Loving others." Another disciple asked, "Master, is there any one maxim which should be acted upon throughout one's own life?" Confucius replied, "Do not do to others what you do not wish them do to you." A chief disciple of Confucius said, "The single principle that runs throughout the teachings of my Master is loyalty to oneself and charity to one's neighbor.

Understand,
If you practice, your future will be transformed - is yogic techniques.
If you practice, immediately your future will be transformed - is tantric techniques.
If you decide, your past-present-future all three will be transformed is a Shaivaite technique.
Mahadeva is Mahakala. He just lands. The moment He lands, past-present-future everything is He, He, He, He alone. My fundamental right is to build a bliss chemistry inside me independent of anything external. Declare this. Cherish this Kundalini current, cherish this decision. It will burn all other delusional bridges. You will not become poor you will be rich. You will have more pleasure, more beautiful things in your life. All that, independent of the slavery you experience with that. Listen, all that, independent of the slavery you experience with those external items.
I tell you, be blissful because you are Mahadeva; not because you got ‘yes’ for some your proposal in your relationship or business deal. Be blissful because you are Mahadeva. I am blissful because I am Mahadeva. Consciously the reason you chose, the reason you choose to be blissful, builds your bliss chemistry. You don’t need to worry about the unconscious reasons which makes you joyful; the moment money comes you will be joyful, the moment you get ‘yes’ from your proposal from boyfriend or girlfriend you will be joyful, the moment you get ‘yes’ from a business proposal you will be joyful. Those are all unconscious joys. You don’t need to have guilt about them, you don’t need to worry about them. Consciously you build the bliss chemistry – ‘I am joyful because I am Mahadeva. I am my intention to be’. This consciously deciding to be joyful because ‘you are your intention to be’ is building bliss chemistry in you independent of anything external.

Cherish this kundalini current. Cherish, decide, entertain, enjoy, celebrate, this one kundalini current - ‘I am what I want to be, my intention; my fundamental right is building my bliss chemistry independent of anything external.’
Cherish, cherish, cherish, entertain, enjoy, celebrate this beautiful kundalini current, you will be ready, you will be ready for more mystical powers in Kumbh Mela, to receive in Kumbh Mela.
Be blissful because you are what your intention to be. Your physiological, psychological, neurological ups and downs are not you; neither down, nor up, both are not you. It is not that you will not enjoy if you know the ups are not you; not that you will not enjoy. You will enjoy independently, freely, without the side effect of down. The side effect of up is down. Without the side effect of down you will be celebrating; because whether up comes or goes you know you are not up.
When you know you are not ups and downs, don’t worry that ups will be taken away from you; only the downs disappear, ups become your natural flow of existence. When you don’t care, you go higher than ups and downs. Higher than ups and downs means up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up.
Any small thing, you will enjoy. There won’t be any requirement for something big for you to fall into your bliss chemistry.
You are a teddy bear soaked in honey; nothing much is required for you to make the honey as a experience for you and others. Just a small touch is enough, you will also be enjoying the sweet and you will share that with others.
Your senses does not need to be excited for your bliss. Your ideas does not need to be accredited, recognized for bliss.
You are blissful just because what you intend to be. You are what you intend to be. Be blissful because you are Mahadeva.

One is known as Mahamaya, and the other is delusion of the senses – experience of sense objects. You are a traveler towards immortality; you will encounter difficulties if you do not progress towards Him. Do not get entangled in the vibhutis (supernatural powers). This is merely a state. The ultimate and the absolute (goal) will not be attained through vibhuti. The power attained should not be exhausted. Try for the revelation of the self, otherwise you will face difficulties and fall (from the state attained).

Ever since there is God so also is Maya. When God is not? That is why Maya is also beginning less. One should try to realize oneself either in the form of a servant of God or in the form of the Atma.

Try to pour out the mind and spirit in japa and meditation to the best of your capability. Try to keep yourself in divine surroundings and spiritual engagement as long as possible. The speed of the journey to the spiritual goal of a traveler should be accelerated. May it be of liking or not, japa, meditation and remembrance should be carried on.

Nothing does everything better than something.
I say this because we have a fear that
'If I am empty of me as a person, how can I live?
I have rent to pay. I have children to look after.
If I am empty, how can I do these things?'
But you merely think it is you doing all these things.
This is a very difficult thing to convey to the immature mind
because the mind won't accept these words.
The Supreme Being is doing everything.
Through all the bodies it is doing all this as the vital force.
But also the personal mind has an influence.
Now you must judge whether the influence of the mind,
if the involvement or so-called help of the personal mind,
is needed by the Absolute.
