Understand some of the basic truths. Your attitude towards a person decides whether you are going to be part of his public life, private life, secret life. Same applies – your attitude towards the Cosmos is going to decide whether you are going to be part of the Cosmos – public life, private life or secret life.
If you are part of Cosmos’ public life, you will be a great devotee, whatever you want will be showered, nurtured, nourished.
If you are part of Cosmos’ private life, you will be an Enlightened Being, whenever you want, He will manifest through you and bless few people around you.
Becoming part of His secret life, if you are part of His Cosmos’ secret life, then you know the nuances – how the Brahmānda [lit. the egg of Cosmos] functions.
Neither the law nor the logic defines the method of Brahmānda’s functions. Neither there is a law nor there is a logic in Sadāshiva’s functioning. There is a tremendous love and integrity to His love – need to be understood. Once you catch His love and His integrity to His love, you will understand, that is the way He functions.
Till you become part of His secret life, you will continue to have questions, stupid questions – why somebody is rich? Why somebody is poor? Why somebody lives long? Why somebody dies within few days of birth? Why somebody falls sick? Why somebody is healthy? – all this questions will be there. Either they will be haunting you or you will push them under the carpet and sit on it, whatever, but it will be there. It will be there!
Only when you become part of His secret life, you are He, He is you – you are an Incarnation. Whoever becomes part of the secret life of Sadāshiva, Cosmos – you are an Incarnation.
Understand, if you have the attitude – Cosmos is great, you are low – its half-truth. Cosmos is great is Truth, you are low – is a foolish logic out of which you function.
I want to remind you once more – for God to be great, you don’t need to be bad. It’s only in human kingdom, if somebody has to be a king, you have to be slave. If somebody has to be a boss, you have to be a slave. If somebody has to be leader, you have to be a follower; not in the Divine Kingdom, because in the Divine Kingdom the Head is not ‘one’, it is Oneness. It is not led by one, it is led by ONENESS. It is not headed by ‘one’,
it is headed by ONENESS. Understand, some of these vital understandings.

Do not understand passion as something that happens with a person. Understand passion as anything that is in touch with you right now. The very cloth that you wear, the very air that you breathe, the very food that you eat, the very earth that you walk upon, just practice some passion.
It is horrible to tell anyone to practice passion, but please try. Just be passionate about everything. When it is unbridled, it is not entangling any more.

Don’t take your seeking for granted among the billions, less than million are given that call.
Among the millions only thousands pick up the call. You be that few thousands who pick up the call.
You already received the incoming call, that is why you are even watching this satsang, listening to this satsang.
Don’t think, “there were so many billboards so I am here.” No. Kashi has 15 lakh population.

As long as your secret crush can hide his or her secret crush from you only, he or she can continue to do all the drama, dillydally. The moment you discover or he or she has revealed, that person also has a secret crush on you, no more drama can be done. Same way, till you understand Sadāshiva has secret crush on you only, all these sufferings in the life, drama in the life –“Am I accepted or rejected? Am I right or wrong? Am I sinner or saint?” – all this stupidity, dillydallying.

The moment you understand, “Aye, now I know. He also has a secret crush on me,” the whole drama is over.

Now you are His secret life partner. You are no more a secret crush; you are His secret life partner. That is the symbolic truth expressed in Meenakshi’s marriage.
Understand, now you know the truth – He also has a secret crush on you. Nothing more can be hidden. No more drama. Become part of His secret life. Become Sadāshiva’s secret life partner. Celebrate life. Other than your will, other than your intention to be, other than your declaration, nothing else is a reality, all other psychological, physiological, neurological ups and downs are not real. They do not exist. They cannot touch you. Apply that truth, here, now for this sacred secret.

I tell you, Ramana Maharishi says beautifully, “just like how human beings associate themselves with the body, even though they know they are not the body, they just use the body to relate and do what they want to do. Same way, Sadāshiva Himself associates Himself with Arunachala. He says, Sadāshiva feels Arunachala is His body even though He knows He is beyond body, He uses that body to do what He wants to do.” I tell you one more secret. What Ramana Maharishi revealed is one of the Mahadeva Rahasya. I am giving you one more Mahadeva Rahasya. Listen carefully. This Rahasya will be directly useful for you in your life. Every time you declare – SADĀSHIVOHAM – Mahadeva, Sadāshiva rushes towards you to manifest through you, because the Whole wants to manifest through every part, the Whole by Its nature wants to manifest and celebrate its existence through every part.
Understand, just like Ramana Maharishi revealed one Mahadeva Rahasya, I will share with you guys one more Mahadeva Rahasya. Anybody, if they address Me as Arunachala and ask anything, I will just give. That’s a secret password which I enjoy. That’s a secret passcode. I tell you, same way Sadāshiva has a secret passcode. Sadāshiva has a very secret passcode. It’s almost like a pattern for Him. I know Sadāshiva cannot have pattern. But I can tell you with all My confidence, its almost like a pattern for Him. The moment you even have the guts to declare Sadāshivoham, He just feels mesmerized by you and He just lands and manifests through you, whatever you want. Understand, if you call Me Arunachala and ask for something, I will never say ‘no’, because I have to prove I am Arunachala. I have to establish. Same way, if you just declare – “Sadāshivoham. I am Sadāshiva. This is the way I want my life to manifest” – simply He gets mesmerized by you and enters into you, and manifests through you the way you want.
Understand this secret code. Use it to all your benefit, max it. Over use it, not just use it, overuse it to your maximum benefit. He loves to be overused. He celebrates when you overuse Him. He is the limitless resource, does not feel afraid of get overused. He is waiting for you to overuse Him. Only limited resources are afraid of getting overused. He is limitless resource. He celebrates when you overuse Him. He celebrates when you overuse Him.
Learn this Mahadev Rahasya. Watch this satsang again and again because I have revealed so many Mahadeva Rahasyas in this. Your life to reach fulfillment and completion nothing else is required other than this one satsang. If you understand and internalize this one satsang, that is enough, you will achieve Completion and fulfillment both.

The right words you utter about you, matters. Right words you utter about you is more powerful and deeper than any prayer you can utter. In prayer you ask and wait for it to become reality. The words you utter, you declare your reality. There is a big difference. In prayer you ask and wait for it to become reality. But in the right words in your Will, you declare your reality – means you ARE making it, that’s it.
I tell you, declaring is the most powerful tapas [austerity]. That is why if you read in the Indian Puranas, Vedic Puranas, Hindu Puranas, if a Rishi sits and declares something and sits with his declaration, even the Devaloka [abode of Gods] shakes, Indra has to come, Brahma has to come, Vishnu has to wake up from His sleep. Shiva has to stop His dance and appear. Read the Puranas [cosmic historities]. An ordinary old man sits in the forest with his declaration, Devaloka shakes, Indra cannot handle the fire anymore, he runs. Your declarations are too powerful. That is the way you are connected to the whole existence. That is the umbilical cord nobody can disconnect which you have with the whole existence. Your declaration nobody can deny, understand.
Somebody asked me a few days before, “Swamiji I want you as part of my whole life, what should I do?” Nothing. Your prayers won’t work. Just declare, even I cannot deny. When you declare, the power of your declaration, when you sit on it, no one can deny, it has to become reality because declaration is the way your will manifests. Your will is the way you are connected to the Universe. Your will is your umbilical cord which cannot be disconnected.

Chew this thought current of – everything manifested, good or bad, right or wrong, whatever, whatever, I am seeing as my life, health or disease, youth or old age, poverty or wealth, friendliness or enmity, acceptance or rejection, support or opposition, everything you manifest is from the stuff you are made. The stuff is from you: You are the Source!

Ma-The man who is fortunate, whose sanskaras are excellent, does not require a 'return ticket' any more. In order to change the rhythm of the breath one has to resort to sustained practice. One should begin by the repetition of any one of God's names that one prefers. By treading the path that the Guru points out, the breath will be altered and thereby also the bent of one's mind. The moment this is achieved the sushumna will become active in the twinkling of an eye, just as when air is suddenly pumped into a tyre (tube). So long as these things do not happen of themselves, one will have to go on striving. Everyone will understand what refers to the specific line of approach along which he proceeds. The type of meditation that suits a particular person may also reveal itself. So long as this does not occur there are difficulties, struggle, the impression that one is not getting anywhere, that one is incapable of achieving. The exact path one has to take is recognised when the time is ripe. Just as when water is poured out somewhere and finds the proper way to descend and join a stream. So long as the water does not mix with other water one will have to keep on pouring. If inbetween it dries up, no harm has been done. Who can tell at what moment a flood will burst forth? At some time or other one is bound to be blessed by a touch of one's true being. How union is achieved is full of mystery. The current that leads to it is fourfold. One part is unmanifest and three parts are manifest. By the action of pranayama and by dhyana the three manifest parts will have to be joined to the unmanifest. By one's own particular kriya, by the repetition of a name, by pranayama one will have to unite with that current. By selfless service done with the conviction that all are but manifestations of the One, man may also become united to Him. One has to proceed with great regularity and constancy. So long as that spontaneous revelation does not occur, one will have to apply oneself. There was One. He divided Himself in order to create the world. He has always been with you. What is in the microcosm is also in the macrocosm. Thus you have to exert yourself in order to realise your Self. The Lord is manifested in every creature. To find God means but to find one's own Self. Therefore one has to tread the path with steadfastness. All spiritual paths are right and open out towards liberation. HE is free and thus the road to Him leads to freedom. You have grasped, haven't you, that all are contained in the One and the One is present in all.

311. Satsang with Ma.

Narayana Swami-Ma, today it was discussed with Sri Gopinath Kaviraj, how while the child is in its mother's womb it has knowledge of its true being, but the moment it sees the light of day, forgetfulness supervenes. How is it that at the moment of birth breathing becomes divided into four parts?
Ma-It is for you to know what your Shastras say. This body speaks in its own higgledy-piggledy way. When, the other day, I went for a drive, air was pumped into the tube of a wheel. When there was no air in it, the tube seemed shrunk, as if divided into bits, but when it was blown up again it became round and everywhere equally full of air. Similarly, by practicing God's name, kirtan, meditation and so forth, in the case of some aspirants, pranayama comes about of itself and the body suddenly trembles and becomes straightened; a divine power begins to have its play and yogic postures, etc, manifest spontaneously. When this condition becomes permanent, the breath is no longer divided into four parts, everything merges into one undisturbed bliss, and Knowledge is awakened.
Not only by hathayoga and similar kinds of tapasya can this be accomplished, but also by the practice of the name of Hari. The Name is itself God. One should give serious attention to God's name. By continuous kirtan of 'Hari bol' other mantras also are uttered spontaneously and one's manner of sitting changes. When this body played the play of sadhana, something like this happened. When bhakti arises, a purified body may--nay, does have a similar experience. If one proceeds exactly according to the rules, the body will certainly experience vibration and shivering. Thereupon follow other divine realizations. The subtle nadis of the body will not each be separate anymore, one force will flow through all of them. So as to break all bondage, the knots of the heart will open automatically, each in the way that is needed. No matter what line of sadhana you may have adopted, when the 'switch' is pressed at the muladhara, there will first of all be vibration and shivering and then visions of light may be seen and divine sounds of various kinds heard.

Ma-While the child is in its mother's womb, its inner power is united with that of his mother and thus there is knowledge of Reality. By the yogas of meditation or inquiry or by kriyayoga, and other yogas one must again reach the state of the child in its mother's womb. The sadhaka, the bhakta, the yogi must become the child-yogi in the womb of the Divine Mother. Then the breath will not be cut up anymore. All along there will be only one goal, one aspiration, one inner experience, one Realization.
No matter from what point the wrinkled tube may be filled, it will become straightened and equally full of air in all its parts. When by practicing pranayama, kirtan, meditation in the right manner the mind becomes one-pointed, body and life-force are steadied, or one may also put it the other way round and say, when the movement of the life-force is stilled, the mind becomes one-pointed. Then the life-force flows evenly through the sushumna nadi. At that moment remembrance is awakened, the state of Knowledge is achieved.
While in its mother's womb, the individual has no connection with the outer world; there is thus no impediment and the blood circulation is not conditioned by the functioning of the breath but evenly flows straight in and out of the mother's blood stream. By the sight of outer things and by breathing the outer air, man's concentration is destroyed and the remembrance of his true nature vanishes. It is necessary for the aspirant to hide himself from the obstacles of the outer world by entering the Divine Mother's womb in the cave of his own heart. Thereby lost remembrance will be restored. Then the Mother will take on Herself all his burdens.
Today rather much has been disclosed by this body, even though the secret has been merely hinted at in broad outlines. He who is ready for it will understand it rightly.

Q-What is the advantage and the special result of meditating in a cave? Does a cave represent the mother's womb or the cave in the human heart?
Ma-Meditating in a cave enhances single-mindedness. The outer cave is a symbol for the inner cave. The home of the householder should be provided with a retreat like a shrine room to be used as a cave. In order to destroy the curtain of ignorance, a place that is curtained off to serve as a cave will have to be set apart in every home. Behind the curtain one should meditate and outside of the curtain perform service. Grihasta Ashram signifies a condition in which the householder is not aware of strain or toil. He must serve his family, regarding every member as a manifestation of the One. Work for your little daughter with the idea that she represents Kumari, the Virgin Mother of the Universe and for your son looking upon him as Gopal, the child Krishna. By taking care of his wife the husband serves but Lakshmi, the Goddess presiding over home and hearth; and the wife should worship the Lord of the world in her husband. One's parents are to be revered as spiritual preceptors, one's younger brothers as Gopalas, one's younger sisters as Gouris, the big brothers to be respected as fathers and one's elder sisters as mothers. If one is able to serve everyone with this attitude of mind, how can family life be an impediment to sadhana? Wherever you may find yourself, acts of service will help you to fulfil yourself, to attain to perfection. And in addition to engaging in service, a special place and time should be reserved for the worship and contemplation of God in solitude. All the rest of the day try to sustain the remembrance of His Name or of a mantra. Wherever you may be, the way to the revelation of God lies there itself. For the brahmachari and sannyasi it is most congenial to practice meditation in seclusion in a cave. Depending on one's capacity and stage, the place of practice, the sadhana and the state of achievement vary.

314. Satsang with Ma.

Q-Are the Vanaprastha and Sannyas Ashrams appropriate under modern conditions?
Ma-One should try to live every Ashram (stage of life) according to the injunctions of the Shastras. The Vanaprastha and Sannyas Ashrams are difficult ones. Everyone should do as much as he can.
Q-The Shastras prescribe that a man should retire to the forest and adopt the Vanaprastha Ashram after he has completed 50. How can this rule be followed in our times?
Ma-When do people retire nowadays? At 55 or 58 or 60. Well, then at least at the age of 60 they should abandon their worldly life and, freeing themselves from their ties, live in an Ashram. Why be attached to what has been left behind? If at 55 the spirit of renunciation comes over you, retire and become a Vanaprastha.
Q-What is the path of a Rishi (Rishipanth)?
Ma-For the offspring of a Rishi--his sons and daughters--for them is the path of a Rishi. The wife of a Rishi is called Rishi patni and his son Rishi balak. What is meant by Rishi you can find out from the Shastras. You should study and perform the duties of a Rishi. The founder and ancestor of every family (gotra) was a Rishi. You are all descendants of Rishis. The Grihastashram should be lived in accordance with the rules of the path of a Rishi, in obedience to the Shastras and to Dharma. If a householder abides by the laws of conduct laid down in the Shastras, then by the grace of God he will automatically reach the goal of life. Where action is not spontaneous there is trouble and friction. Whatever action or event comes about without difficulty, should be understood as happening spontaneously. In this there is no toil or strain, no craving, it happens by God's Will.

Q-What do you mean when you say, 'Ashram is a condition in which there is absence of strain or toil?'
Ma-Where restlessness, desire and trouble are, there is strain and toil. If the Ashram is lived in keeping with its innate rules, there will be none of these. The strenuous striving towards Self-realization is not felt as strain, it is tapasya. Strain implies the awareness of discomfort. Even if by tapasya the body is subjected to discomfort, mind and heart are full of enthusiasm and joy. To realize God means to realize one's Self. How can there be strain while engaging in the essential thing for oneself? The sadhana that is prescribed so that the Atma may be revealed will not be felt as strain or toil. To do tapasya is your self-expression; in order that this may become evident, the tapasya must be free from strain, must be easy and natural. If I work at the bidding of another, it may seem a drudgery to me, but if I do my own work, prompted by my own desire, how can this be wearisome? Self-realization, in other words, God-realization is one's own work, the endeavour to find one's Self is one's own natural endeavour. The states of a tapasvi, sadhaka or yogi are states of the effortless play of the Self.
Q-Can the action of the Sushumna be compared to pumping air into a tube?
Ma-You are referring to our talk about the tube the other day. According to the line along which a person practices sadhana will be his realization; by attending to the work of one's true nature one attains to eternal union. The man who becomes united with Him is styled a yogi. To prepare oneself for that Sublime Touch is the purpose of sadhana. By practicing or listening to the name of Hari or doing japa, the rhythm of one's breath is regulated, pranayama comes about spontaneously, there is repose, natural ease, no difficulty, no illness. The rhythm by which mundane work is achieved causes disease, sickness, worry; it does not bring about rest, ease and equilibrium. If you remain steeped in the current of worldly activity there will be physical creation, worldly knowledge and worldly interest. This is the current of constant wanting, not the current that leads to God-realization.

Q: Are Kali, Durga, Chandi, Krishna distinct from one another or one? If they are one, why then have they different forms?

Ma: God is indeed one. Just as man is one but of different forms. Thus Kali, Krishna and so forth are one as the Brahman, but where outer manifestation (Shakti) comes in, they are different. Men vary in character and temperament and therefore manifest in different shapes. By His grace God shows you the particular form under which you will realize Him. But in essence God is one. There is only one Atma--with form and formless--both are but the Atma. With form (sakara) means He Himself as Form. Just as water and ice are eternally of one substance, even so God Himself appears in various shapes, yet He is one. On the plane of action He appears divided, as the Atma He is one without a second.

Q: If the Self is one, why then is the sorrow of one man not felt by the others?

Ma: Only while there is the sense of separation this is so. So long as there are others, experience is divided. But when there is no more question of difference, then the sorrow of all will be felt as one's own. When the distinction between knowledge, the object of knowledge and the knower has been obliterated, oneness is realized. Until then experience varies for each individual. What you receive depends on your attitude of mind. That which is in constant flux is called the world. And what is bound is called the individual. In the world of individuals one reaps as one sows. How wonderful is God's dispensation! He plays in an infinite variety of shapes and forms.

Lose yourself altogether when bowing down to God with a single-minded devotion and you will obtain joy and power in proportion.
In this connection she added: “There are two kinds of pranamas : Offering to Him your whole body and mind with all thoughts, desires, sense-impressions, love, affection, devotion, just like emptying the contents of a full pitcher to its last drop. The other way is like scattering face-powder through the minute holes of a powder-box : the major portion of your thoughts and desires is kept back in a hidden chamber of your mind, and only a little dust is allowed to escape.
