All this [world] is conjured by magic;
It's only the water of a desert mirage.
Beyond all differences, beyond all forms,
Truly, there is only Shiva alone.

Continuously united with, yet free from, everything,
The liberated are beyond all manifestation (tattvas).
Indeed, how could there be any birth or death here?
How can one here meditate on either forms or formlessness?

How does one who is continuously bound here by knowledge and ignorance
Become free of both duality and non-duality?
How does a yogi here become natural and desireless?
By becoming aware that he's the stainless Purity,
the enjoyer of unchanging bliss.

While in his mind arises the natural bliss of the Self.

'Basically Yoga is to awaken your Kundalini Shakti and manifest what you want as reality. Ultimately merge, become One with, realize your highest spiritual identity, Shivoham. The experience of “I am Shiva, I am the Divine.” Understand, it may start with bending the body, but it ends in uniting your consciousness with the Divine, becoming one with the Divine.'

'I have many questions from yoga practitioners;
I’ll try to answer some of them on this international day of Yoga.


“I have practiced Yoga for years, mastered many asanas. Everyone around me looks at me like I am enlightened, but I am not. I have a deep yearning to experience the truth of life, but don’t know where to turn; can You guide me where to turn?”


Through this question, you have turned where you need to turn. This is the usual state of people who practice yoga without going through the original scriptures.But it’s okay, you started in some form; now it is time, turn to the original scriptures. Svatmarama, Mahadeva’s Shiva Agama Yoga Patha, don’t be afraid, they are not vast voluminous books. Just in few hundred pages, they will be able to guide you, give you clarity, and raise you to the next level and help you to achieve your enlightenment. All you need to do is just turn towards authentic scriptures, or the masters who are teaching based on authentic scriptures. Please understand, fortunately, Yoga has become trillion dollar industry, but flip side, other side of it is dilution, pollution, because of the necessity to commercialize as per the taste of the customers, clients, who are practicing, so please understand, but you don’t have to worry about it. The solution is here: go back to the original scriptures written by Mahadeva, Svatmarama, Goraknatha, Matsyendranatha, Patanjali. I can comfortably stand by these five names. Adi Yogi Mahadeva Shivagama, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, and Svatmaramas Yoga Pratipika and Hatha Yoga Literatures, Yogic literatures, I can very comfortably, authentically stand by these 5 great masters and books. These five, time tested, fool proof, with no wrong or bad side effects, will help you to reach the real purpose of the yoga by the founding forefathers. So you just need to turn towards the original scriptures, or the masters who are teaching as per the original scriptures, understand. The real masters’ expertise or their experience should be accepted only as long as it is aligned with scriptures, as long as the atma pramana is in tune with the apta pramana, ancient, traditional masters’ experiences. If there is a difference between the two, always go back to the ancient masters’ experience, that should be the touch stone. So understand, it is time for you to turn towards the authentic scriptures, or the masters who teach from authentic scriptures.

'I stand with the Yoga which is from the original roots,
the Yogic literatures which is at least 10,000 years old.
The Yogic scriptures which is deep rooted in Vedic tradition in Hinduism.
Anybody comes I'm ready to share the science of Yoga to them.'

'Fortunately, Svatmarama’s literatures, Mahadeva’s Agama literature, Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, are all translated in all international languages. We can study them, we can refer the original source, please understand, this next one year, as Nithyananda Sangha, we should all decide and make a Satya Sankalpa to spread the original scriptures, original yogic literatures, constantly create the awareness among the yoga students, practitioners, teachers, to align them back to the original scriptures. I think this will be My unique contribution to the world on this International Yoga Day.'

Q. “Many modern day types of yoga may not be aligned to Vedic tradition; are there dangers to practicing?”

A. The question: somebody is asking, it seems many modern day types of yoga might not be aligned to Vedic tradition, but what is the harm, they make me feel good, are there dangers?” Let Me be very honest, because I have not practiced anything not aligned to Vedic tradition, I have no opinion on it. I stand for the yoga which is aligned to original Vedic, Yogic, original scriptures. It helped Me, there is no harm in it, so I am sharing it to the world! Anything not aligned, I have no comment or opinion. I don’t want to give a guarantee about those practices, and I have nothing to say. People ask me, “Instead of chanting Om, can we chant something else?” I tell them, “I do not know, I have no idea, no comments; I stand by the original Vedic tradition based on the original Vedic literatures, Vedic scriptures, that is what I practiced. I had the fortune of having a guru who is master of Vedic scripture, I know the benefits of that, and that is what I am sharing with you all.” I am not a politician; I don’t need secular votes, I am a Vedic guru who stands completely with the Vedic, Yogic tradition! I have no comments about anything which is not aligned to the Yogic scriptures.'

'I think My message today is loud and clear: Let’s go back to the Source! Let’s open the original books, the original scriptures, original literatures, follow only that, live only that, that’s all is My message on this International Yoga Day. I request and recommend all My disciples and followers, go back to the original source, Yogic literatures, Vedic literatures, as I was telling, don’t bother about the controversies, let us not waste our time in trying to answer, pass opinions, it’s waste of time. Neither I am a politician who is supposed to convince anyone, nor you are practicing Yoga for the sake of some reason of convincing somebody or the way somebody is convinced.'

' ON LIBERATION '

An ignorant man who has never attained any of the states of Yoga in his whole life is carried by the current of his reincarnation to wander in a hundred births until he happens, by some chance or other, to get some glimpse of spiritual light in any of his births.

Or it may be that he happens to associate with holy men and becomes dissatisfied with the world. The renunciation which springs thereby becomes the ground for one of the stages of his Yoga.

By this means, the man is saved from this miserable world, because it is the united voice of all the scriptures that an embodied being is released from death as soon as he has passed through any one stage of Yoga.

- Chapter 126

Truth of life cannot be " NO ", neither can it be the ultimatel goal. Because creation does not exist in "NO" but exists in "YES". Because the flow of the life is in "YES". To live with "YES" (Sanyasa) means that one is ready to dissolve into the existence, that the dew drop is ready to drop into the ocean. But the moment the dew drop drops into the ocean, it also becomes the ocean.

Go beyond "NO" try to reach to the ultimate "YES"
