Sri Anandamayi ma

Kishenpur, 23rd April, 1960

Two blind men came. One asked: “How does one get the vi­sion of God? Tell me the easiest way to it?”

Ma: By seeking Him for His own sake.

Question: Which is better, devotion or the path of knowledge?

Ma: Adhere to God’s Name. Repeat His Name day and night and get engrossed in the sweetness of His Name.

The second blind man: Mataji, give me your blessing.

Ma: Pray to God and you will feel His blessing.

A lady: You said: “Seek God for His own sake”. But if one seeks Him with selfishness, will he also attain to Him?

Ma: Of course, if you seek God —with whatever motive— you will get something of Him, and if you pray for anything of this world you will also get it. But these things are not worth asking for. One should not seek God with any motive, but only for His own sake.

Seek God because it is your nature to do so, because you cannot remain without Him. Whether and when He reveals Himself to you is His affair. Yours is to call out to Him constantly, not to waste your energy on anything else.

It is not right to compare and reason saying: “Such and such a person has done sadhana for so many years and yet has not got anywhere”. How can you judge what is happening to anyone inwardly? Sometimes it seems that a person who does sadhana seems to have changed for the worse. But how do you know that this tendency has not always been in him and has now come out so that it may be dealt with and purified as a result of his endeavors? To say: “I have done so much sadhana but have not been transformed”, is also the wrong attitude. Yours is only to seek God and call out to Him unceasingly and not look to the result of what you are doing.

The Lady: Sometimes I feel desperate because I don’t seem to be able to progress.

Mataji: You get desperate when you have desires and they remain unfulfilled. But when you aspire to God for His own sake how can you be desperate.

Of all Krishna's wives, there was none so sweet and docile as Rukmini. She was Lakshmi Devi incarnate, the consort of Lord Vishnu.

She was the ideal Aryan wife, asking for nothing, demanding nothing, finding her greatest happiness in the service of her husband, who was also her Lord and God. At no time in her life had she ever opposed his wishes or in any way expressed her opinions at variance with his, as the headstrong Satyabhama was wont to do. One day, the Lord decided to gauge the placidity of the calm lake of her mind by dropping a pebble of discontent into it. Was it as calm at the bottom as it appeared on the surface, or were the storms of passion lurking below?

One afternoon, he was resting on the swing bed with Rukmini gently fanning him and deriving immense pleasure from this small service. She presented a picture of rare beauty as she stood beside the Lord. Her jeweled anklets made a sweet, tinkling sound as she moved about, and her bangles kept time with the movement of the gently waving fan. Seeing her looking so lovely and serene, the Lord said, with a mischievous smile, "O princess, many a ruler who was equal in wealth to the divinities, who was as noble, as charming, and as endowed with looks, generosity, strength, and valor came to your 'swayamvara'(choosing husband ritual), including Shishupala, the prince of Chedi. Without caring for any of them, why did you choose me, who am inferior to them in all things, who has taken up shelter in the middle of the sea out of fear, who has abandoned all claims to the royal throne, and whose way of life is steeped in mystery and transcends the ways of the world? I am one without any possessions and am fond of those with nothing. Therefore, O beautiful one, wealthy people do not seek my favor. Marriage and friendship should only be between people who are compatible in respect to birth, wealth, and position. Therefore, O princess of Vidarbha, if it was without knowledge of these failings that you chose to marry me, then it is still not too late for you to seek some noble Kshatriya prince like Shishupala, who will be a real match for you an enable you to fulfill your aspirations in this world and the next. I took you by force, only to destroy the pride of those evil kings. We who are established in the equilibrium of wisdom have no need for women, offspring, or wealth. We are ever satisfied with the bliss of the 'atman', the true Self, and we act the role of the uninvolved witness in the affairs of the world."

At the beginning of this unprovoked attach, Rukmini had looked up startled, wondering what she had done to provoke this tirade. But as the harangue continued unabated, her lips started quivering, her eyes filled with tears, and a terrible sorrow clutched at her heart and threatened to tear it apart. Any minute now, she expected to heart the fateful words banishing her from his divine presence, forbidding her ever to return again. The final straw was the mention of the hateful word 'Shishupala'. If there was anyone whom the gentle princess detested, it was the prince of Chedi. Her tender heart could bear no more. Her bangles slipped off her limp arms, and without a sound, she crumpled to the ground. Seeing thins drastic reaction to his teasing, the Lord jumped up from the cot, lifted her tenderly, massaged her face with his lotus palms, did everything to bring her back to consciousness, and then proceed to soothe and pacify her. At last, her lovely eyes fluttered open.

"O beautiful one," he said' "do not be angry with me. I was only teasing you for the pleasure of hearing your reply. Differences of opinion happen in all marriages. In fact, that is the only gain to be had from marriage. What you should have done was to defend yourself against my unjust accusations, and then we could have spent a happy hour arguing and quarreling with each other, as all husbands and wives do. I never expected you to swoon." Thus he comforted her and tenderly kissed away her tears. At last, with heaving breasts and smothered sobs, Rukmini spoke.

"I find no pleasure in anything but your service, O Lord," she said with quivering lips. "Your smiles, your glances, your commands - these constitute my life breath, and if I cannot have these, I would rather die." Then, taking up each of the points that he had declared to be detrimental to him, she pointed out that these very points were a matter of pride to her.

"O lotus-eyed Lord! What you said about my not being a fitting match for you is indeed true. For where are you, the all-prevading being, the master of all powers and excellence, and where am I, a creature constituted of the three gunas? It is true that you have taken your residence in the deep sea, for you are the pure consciousness that is ever resident in the ocean of our hearts. Your ways are mysterious and no doubt none can conceive of them. You are indeed a pauper, for there is nothing outside you that you can possess. You are the embodiment of all values. Men abandon everything the world prizes to follow you. These are the noble ones with whom you have affinity. That is a true marriage, when a person attains union with you. This is only a relationship of the body. It was by hearing of your greatness from the ascetics who have no possession but you that I came to love you, rejecting all lesser mortals. Having driven away the assembled kings by a mere twang of your bow, you took me away, for I am your rightful property. Who is the woman with even a modicum of sense who would go after a man, who is nothing but a walking corpse, in preference to you, who are the abode of all excellence? Who is the woman who will care to leave you, after having once experienced the perfume of your lotus feet, the abode of Lakshmi, the goddess of fortune? I have sought shelter in you, the Lord of all the worlds, the Paramatma, and the one who fulfills all the aspirations of everyone, here and in the hereafter, for you are the only match for me. (The Paramatma is the only match for the jivatma). Revolving as I am in this cycle of birth and death, may your feet be my shelter, your feet that destroy the false identification of the body with the spirit and that remains ever, with the devotee as his sole support, in the ocean of samsara. Only those women who are steeped in ignorance and who have never known the fragrance of your lotus feet would go after human husbands, who are nothing but corpses clad in skin and bones and flesh."

The Lord said, "O noble one! It was only to hear these words of yours that I teased you. It would be difficult to find even one household with a wife like you. Your single-minded devotion and dedication to me shall go uncompensated, for they are too noble and pure to be rewarded by anything I can do for you."

Thus, he blessed and comforted her. This small episode in the life of the Lord shows how he played the role of the typical householder to perfection, as he played every other role.

An ancient king of Bharatavarsha called Muchukunda had procured a boon from Indra, the king of the gods, for having helped him defeat the demons. The boon asked by the king was that he should be allowed to sleep in peace for many years, until the advent of the Lord as Krishna, for he was anxious to behold this form of the Lord. Indra granted him this blessing and also promised him that if anyone woke him up before the appointed time, that person would be turned into ashes. This king, Muchukunda, was sleeping in the cave into which Krishna entered. Naturally, Kalayavana was ignorant of all this. He followed the Lord into the cave and saw the form of the sleeping king. In the dim light of the cave, he mistook it for Krishna. Not waiting to ascertain further details, he directed a well-aimed kick at the sleeper and said in a loud voice, "Get up, O Yadava! You cannot hope to escape my wrath by resorting to these childish tricks!"

Being thus rudely awakened from his sleep of eons, King Muchukunda turned a baleful eye on the miscreant. Kalayavana was immediately reduced into a heap of ashes. Krishna thereupon emerged from behind the rock, from which vantage point he had been watching the proceedings with interest. Muchukunda's second boon had been that he would be able to see Vishnu in his avatara as Krishna, and when he saw the divine form that he had been dreaming about for years, he immediately rose up and then prostrated. "Who is it that I am seeing before me? In this mountain cave filled with gloom, the brilliance emanating from you is dispelling the darkness with a glowing light. O great one, please tell me all particulars about yourself, for I consider you to be an incarnation of Lord Vishnu."

To him the Lord replied smilingly, "O honored one, my births, deeds, and names are so numerous that even I cannot recount them all. It may be possible to count the particles of dust on this planet but not the number of my births. But know that in this birth I am incarnated in the line of the Yadus as the son of Vasudeva and am known as Vaasudeva. Because you have worshiped me in the past and have desired to have a vision of me in his form, I have presented myself in this cave. O royal sage, choose whatever boons you want, and I shall grant them accordingly."

The king said, "O Lord, my life until now has been wasted in vain pursuits centering on the feeling that the body is the self. Your mighty power called time reduces to mere dust even a kingly body, encased in silks. So now, having come to my senses, I do not seek any other blessing than service at your feet. Who is it that, having once known you, would ask for any other boon? All material goods are only a means for further bondage. O Spirit Supreme! O refuge of the helpless! I have been reduced to wretchedness by the enemies called passions, which are within me, and I have sought refuge in you, Protect me, O Lord, from the dangers within."

The Lord replied, "Know, O King, that I did not tempt you with boons to test your mastery over your desires but only to show how a devotee with unswerving love for me can never be attached to worldly attractions. I bless you with unshakable and unwavering devotion to me always and under all conditions. Go now and practice austerities to remove the effects of your past karmas. In your next birth, you will be born as a saint with universal love; after that, you will attain me."

Soon after, the Lord, accompanied by Uddhava and Balarama, went to Akrura's house to fulfill the promise made to him.

Akrura worshiped him with all honor and addressed him thus, "O Lord, today my house has been rendered more holy than the hermitages of ascetics, for it has had the great good fortune to have as its guest the supreme parent and teacher of the world, who is the embodiment of all the divinities. Who is the man who will seek shelter in anyone other than you, the lover of his devotees, the universal well-wisher? Not only do you grant the desires of your devotees, however trifling, but you are the one who grants your very self, after attaining which there is no further fall (into the meshes of worldly delusion). You have embodied yourself in age after age, whenever the ancient path of right living and enlightenment, the Sanatana Dharma, which has been revealed by you, is in danger of being lost. O Janardana, it is the height of good fortune that you have condescended to come of your own accord to my humble abode. Grant me the ability to cut asunder the cord of attachment, your maya's creation, for son, wife, wealth, house, and body."

...Krishna's messenger Uddhava tried to comfort them. "Listen, O gopis! You have attained the highest fulfillment of life, and the whole world must adore you, for you have succeeded in surrendering your minds completely to the Lord of all. Normally, people attain this state through the practice of many disciplines, vows, and austerities, but even without any of these, I find in you an extraordinary manifestation of love for the divine, which is rare even among sages. Now listen to the message he has sent for you:

"O beloved ones, I have never left you and will never leave you. You have never been separate from me, for I am manifest in the whole universe. If I have not come to see you, it is only because I have still to accomplish what I have come for. But do not grieve, for your grief is my grief and your joy is my joy. For love such as yours, there can be no end. I, who am boundless, have been bound by your love. Blessed are you among women, for your names will ever be remembered by the world to come. When I am far away physically, meditate on me, and thus you will be able to commune with me. Devoid of other thoughts, allow your minds to enter into me, and then you will attain me without delay."

...It is only now that Nanda realized the bitter truth that the child he had adored and brought up for twelve years as his own son was not his bus Vasudeva's. How joyously had he set out for the capital a few days ago! How happily had he assured his wife that he would return with their beloved son! Now he found his son to be a king and he himself left to return home alone and empty-handed. With what words could he comfort his wife? In that whole town that had gone mad with joy, he alone grieved. But Krishna, sensing his deep unhappiness, went and comforted him.

"Dear Father!" he said. "We were nourished, fondled, and cared for by you with extreme affection. She is the real mother and he, the real father who takes care of another person's child as his own. You, O Father, have done this for us when our parents were unable to look after us. Even Devaki, who gave birth to me, has never had the pleasure of watching my childhood pranks, as you have. O Father, I do not belong to this person or that. I belong to those who love me. To him who looks on me as a son, I will go as a son, not only now , but in the ages to come."

His voice rang out as he said this, as if he were making a promise to posterity. Nanda felt immeasurably comforted and was able to return to Gokula in a happier state of mind.

Satyabhama, the favourite wife of Lord Krishna and the daughter of Satrajit, asked the sons of Pandu who are endowed with great strength? How is it that they are never angry with you? They are all ever ready to carry out your wishes. Tell me the secret."

Draupadi replied: "O Satyabhama! Hear now of my conduct towards the high souled Pandavas. I always serve them with intense devotion, giving up vanity and controlling my desire and anger. I do not look or sit or talk with superiority. I do not utter what is false or evil. My heart is never attracted to any body, young or handsome, wealthy or adorned with ornaments.

"I never bathe or eat or sleep till my husbands have bathed or eaten or slept, till all the servants and our followers have bathed, eaten and slept. Whenever my husbands return from the fields, the forest or the town, I rise hastily and salute them, offering them seats and water. I always keep the house and all the household articles and food clean. I keep them in border also. I carefully preserve the rice and serve it at the proper time.

"I never utter harsh words. I never get angry. I never imitate wicked women. I always do what is pleasant and agreeable. I am never lazy or idle. I never laugh except, in jest. I never linger long at the gate of the house. I always refrain from laughing loudly or indulging in things that may give offence. I am ever engaged in serving my husbands.

"Separation from my husbands is never agreeable to me. When they go to other places to see my relations I do not use flowers or scented paste and observe rigid austerities I always abandon what ever my husbands do not enjoy, whether it be food or drink. I always devotedly seek the welfare of my husbands. I always engage in those duties which my mother-in-law taught me concerning relatives, almsgiving worship of the gods, oblations, to ancestors and entertainment of guests. I always perform my duty day and night without the least idleness.

"I behave towards my husbands with great humility and reverence. I never deviate even a bit from the approved rules of conduct while serving them. I serve them always regarding them as so many poisonous snakes capable of being enraged even at a trifle.

"I am of the opinion that to depend on one's husband is the eternal virtue of a women. The husband is God to her. He is her sole refuge. There is no other refuge for her. How can a wife then act in a way that is disagreeable to her husband?

"I am always guided by my husbands. I never speak ill of my mother-in-law. I never, in sleeping, eating or adorning my person, act against the wishes of my husbands. I am diligent, brisk and prompt in my actions. I serve my Gurus with extreme humility. Therefore my husbands are highly pleased with me. Every day I serve my revered mother in-law with love and humility. I wait on her personally with food, drink and clothes.

"I never show any preference to my self over my mother-in-law in matters of food, dress and ornaments. I never rebuke her."

"For a while it can seem like it's a selfish mission to turn your attention so much into yourself. But actually you're like a pioneer into your own spirit--you go there, and something happens in you, where the person blossoms into presence. And the presence is infinitely more wise than the person. And when the presence seems to awaken or reveal itself, it has the power to begin to transform life. The awakened presence is a blessing and a light in the world."

Questioner: Sadhguru, I was wondering whether you could talk about music and dance, which seems to be a big part of Leela. And how do we cultivate receptivity towards that dimension of life?

Sadhguru: It is not that Krishna was always singing and dancing – that was just one part of his life. What is important is that you make your life process into a dance. In the yogic culture, the process of creation or shrishti has always been depicted as a dance of energy, or a dance of five elements. Today, even modern scientists indirectly describe the whole energy process as a dance. Likewise, there is the dance of dissolution. Creation is a dance, – and dissolution also is a dance. It is a scientific fact today that everything in existence is a dance of energy. Whether it is a joyful or a torturous dance is for you to decide, because you have the possibility of using your discrimination to either make yourself blissful or make yourself miserable. But the play of energy is on, all the time.

This is what Leela and Krishna are all about – being “on” all the time – consciously, not compulsively. When life situations compel you, when you act out of compulsion and not out of choice, then it is a great burden to be switched on – you would rather be switched off. Whenever you want to be switched off, unknowingly, you are inviting death. Death may not come straight away; it may come in small measures, because your mind is not vibrant, intense, and focused enough that the moment you wish it, you will fall dead right there. It has happened to people – someone was having a great fight with someone and in great emotion and anger they said, “I want to die,” and they just fell dead, because they wished for it at that moment, and their mind had the intensity to make it happen.

Since your mind does not have this kind of focus and intensity, whenever you want to avoid life, death will happen piecemeal. Most people were really alive when they were young, but except a handful, as they grow older, they are not as alive as they used to be anymore. They may be successful, doing well in the sense that they have money, families, children – everything, but death has happened to them piecemeal. When for example, I happened to meet some of my school and college friends after many years, and I slapped their back and talk to them the way I used to 30 years ago, they looked at me strangely. They were almost 60% dead and could not understand this liveliness.

In so many ways, you try to avoid life and cause a little bit of death to yourself, on a daily basis. That is why, over time, most people do not carry the face of life but the face of death. If someone is around, doing something for them, people may smile, but if they are alone, by themselves, they are the face of death, because they have been inviting death in small measure, moment by moment, on a daily basis.

The whole purpose of Leela is that you are “on” 24 hours a day. You do not choose what is good and what is not, or whether to participate or not. If you do this for some time, you will shake off death. Life is a dance of energy. If you consciously allow yourself to do so, you will dance with it. If you think life should dance in a different way, you will kill yourself in the process. Life is just dancing. A few things may happen your way, but that is not important. The important thing is you are alive and you enjoy the dance of life.

The main reason why you are not in tune with the dance of life is you believe that you are super smart. The cleverest man in the world is always the biggest idiot when it comes to life. You may have your property, your bank balance, or whatever else, but you have missed life.

This childhood meeting of Radhe and Krishna was the beginning of a whole new spiritual path. There are Radhe Panthis and Vishnu Panthis who don’t worship Krishna, they worship only Radhe. They are very huge groups with a large following. If you travel in North India, you will see stickers and posters with just Radhe, no Krishna. Because in her love and her sense of inclusion, she just included him as a part of herself. They say, “There is no Krishna without Radhe.” It’s not the other way around. It is not that there is no Radhe without Krishna. There is no Krishna without Radhe. The word “Radhe” means, Ra means Ras, which means love or juice of life. Dhe means “the giver.”

If you want to taste Krishna, you must become feminine. This is not about being physically male or female. The feminine can be as alive in a man as it is in a woman because the feminine is a certain quality. If you want to know Krishna, you must be willing to become absolutely feminine. This is a path to the ultimate but it is a path of intimacy and tremendous passion. It is a path which does not exclude anything but the very nature of the path is such that once a person steps into it, everything else just disappears. For Radhe, the world does not exist. Only Krishna exists. She is not a good social being but she is an absolutely colorful eternal being.

14.1 Krishna says, ‘I will declare to you again the supreme wisdom, The knowledge of which has helped all sages attain supreme perfection.’

14.2 By becoming fixed in this knowledge, one can attain the transcendental nature, like My own, And establish in his eternal consciousness, that one is not born at the time of creation, or destroyed at the time of dissolution.

14.3 The total material substance, called Brahman, is the source of birth, It is that Brahman that I impregnate, making possible the births of all living beings, O son of Bharata.

14.4 Arjuna, understand that all species of life are made possible by birth in this material nature, and I am the seed-giving father.

“By repeating the truth again and again, Krishna tries to create an engraved memory of truth in Arjuna’s mind. Please try to understand why Krishna repeats Himself. He literally uses the same words again and again. Why? Why should Krishna speak the same thing again and again?

Krishna is a master who is result-oriented. He persists with what He wants. He is unwilling to compromise. He is not easily satisfied with the attitude, ‘I said whatever I had to say; whether he wants to listen or not is up to him.’

No! Again and again, He repeats himself because He wants to create a memory of His teachings in Arjuna’s mind. He does this so that even if Arjuna misses a teaching the first time, perhaps he will get it the next time. By creating an engraved memory in Arjuna’s mind He wants Arjuna to follow it. That is why He repeats the truth again.

He says, ‘I shall declare once more, I will speak to you about the truth, through the knowledge of which all the sages have attained supreme perfection.’ Whether we believe it or not, man by nature is a machine. He is a mechanism. Not only at the body level, he is a mechanism even at the level of the mind. At most, we can call it a bio-mechanism, yet he is still a mechanism.

He works based on engraved memories or what we call samkaras in Sanskrit. He is continuously caught in the web of engraved memories in his mind and his being, because he works based on engraved memories that have been stored in his unconscious zone.

I repeat certain words and sentences, not because I have nothing else to do. These words and sentences have the power to go deep within you. If you allow them, they will help you transform. All you need to do is be open and allow these words to sink into you. As you hear these words, let the words penetrate you. These words carry energy to uplift you, to transform you.”

“Shivoham - not only is it the ultimate truth, it can also be a powerful antidote for all the patterns with which you suffer. Mahadeva releases you from all the conditionings the moment you remember, meditate, create the space of Shivoham. Mahadeva is not the totality of some good qualities. He is ALIVE. When you invoke him, he happens so powerfully, so beautifully, so ALIVE.

He makes all these conditionings, root patterns melt away. Disappear. When you invoke Mahadeva don't think it is just a technique. It does the help of a technique also. But that does not mean, Mahadeva is the totality of these few dead qualities. No. He is a living, vibrant consciousness. The explosion of Shivoham does not happen due to the strength of your practice. It happens because HE is consciousness. You invoke him, he fills you! He is there! This is the biggest difference between atheistic non-dual philosophies and theistic non-dual philosophies. Not only he introduces himself to you – bringing you spiritual authenticity, he introduces himself through you to others – through enriching and spiritual activism.

Shivoham is not a technique. It is a conscious process. Meditate on Shivoham. Don't think the strength of your meditation is going to bring results. You meditating is nothing but you requesting him to fill you. To radiate through you. He is consciousness is the good news that I want you all to know. He is Bolenath. He is too simple. His presence is powerful but not heavy - demanding. Even if you are already dull dead depressed and your whole mind is like a cremation ground, he is happy to dance there.

Invoke him. Request him. Invite him to your inner space. "Whatever I know as Aham is a bunch of root patterns, parental conditionings, social conditionings and past life karmas. Can this stop you from happening in me? Oh Mahadeva happen in me. In whatever I feel as me. Let Aham become Shivoham!"

You can have 10,000 thoughts of self doubt, hatred and denial - but that cannot stop Mahadeva getting invoked in you. It can just happen and burn all the self doubts in a second. The moment you invoke him, he burns it away. Shivoham is not just a technique. It is a space. It is a powerful space.

Radiate the power of Mahadeva. Shiva! Shiva! Shiva! Because he is not a demanding being, there is no precondition on who can experience Shivoham and who cannot. Invoke him authentically and you will merge in him, he will merge in you. The ocean of consciousness, pure consciousness - Mahadeva - happens and radiates.”
