In reality, there is only now. If you know how to handle this moment, you know how to handle eternity

Of Giving and Living (poem)

Saw a flower thought it was giving
On a closer look realized it is only living
Giving an idea sprouted in the minds
Of those succumbed to cerebral complex
Holding concepts as virtue over living
Living not an idea but a boundless real
Giving and taking transactions of petty minds
Living is the only grandeur that will endure
Test of time and stretch of timeless

Is All just a striving to sustain the living
In becoming just the living is the fruition
Of all life within and without
Shall we abandon and deny the cosmic
Deny living to nurture a conceptual comic
This not of giving and living but living and living
Living not as a process of acquiring and hoarding
Living as life can only be, just a throb
That leaves no distinction betwixt common and cosmic

After Seeking enters a being, sooner or later one arrives at a point where one desires guidance and the grace of The One Who Knows, One who has been through this uncharted but inevitable metamorphosis . Blessed are those who seek One, more blessed are those who actually encounter One

Brahmananda swaroopa, Isha Jagadisha
Akilananda swaroopa, Isha Mahesha

Brahman means boundless or the ultimate reality. Ananda means the blissfulness or ecstasy of the Creator, and Swaroopa is the form or image of the ecstasy of the Creator.

Isha is that which rules and Jagadisha is the ruler of the existence. Akhila means everything, all inclusiveness is Akhila. And that which is everything, the image of that, is Mahesha. So the Creator is referred to in so many ways. When we chant Brahmananda Swaroopa, we are saying everything is an image of the ecstasy of the Creator.

The chant is significant not just for its meaning, but because it is a consecrated chant. So here in Isha, we have consecrated these sounds. And it is the simplest way for you to connect with what you refer to as Isha – you can use this as my ID.

When we consecrate a certain set of sounds, it is done with the intention that a large part of you will become absolute stillness, but you will retain the liveliness of life around you. And slowly, this becomes like a coating, like a shield around you. A cocoon of a certain energy. So Brahmananda Swaroopa can be used as a raiment that you wear; it is a clothing that you wear all the time. This chant is more like your clothing, this is not a seed. If you keep on chanting with sufficient involvement, it will be around you. If your life breath becomes this, people can feel it.

So if you chant it substantially enough, it will make a full raiment. If you are only the few-minutes kind, you will have a bikini.

Every human experience is rooted in one's chemistry and stress is just one's chemical soup gone wrong. Meditative process can bring about a chemistry of blissfulness.

In yoga, the ideal break between one meal and the next meal is eight hours. You can manage these kinds of meals even when you are working outside. But a minimum of five hours is a must for everybody. This is because only when your stomach is empty, your excretory system functions properly.

Ekadashi means the 11th day after the full moon and the 11th day after the new moon. The human physiology goes through a cycle called a mandala, approximately every 40 to 48 days. In this cycle, three specific days, which may be different from person to person and need not come with equal spacing, will arise when the body does not demand food. If you identify those days in your life and not give the body food – because it is not asking – a lot of your health issues will be handled by that simple pattern.

So how much sleep does my body need? It depends on the level of physical activity that you are performing. There is no need to fix either food or sleep. These many calories I must eat; these many hours I must sleep – this is a foolish way to handle life. Today your activity levels are low, you eat less. Tomorrow if your activity is very high, you eat more. It’s the same with sleep. The moment the body is well rested it will get up, be it 3 A.M. or 8 A.M. Your body should not wake up to an alarm bell. Once it feels sufficiently rested, it must come awake.

There are no great moments, there are no disasters, there is no suffering – there are only situations. When you know how to handle a situation, you think it is great. When you do not know how to handle a situation, you think it is horrid. These are all just things that you are doing – they are just situations.”

The sacredness of a sporting event is that individuals rise beyond their limitations, achieving a state of abandon that is usually known only at the peak of spirituality.

Look clearly and deeply- beyond all compulsions of body and mind - what it is that you really want to do, and just do it.

Being aware of your mortal nature is extremely important. If you remind yourself every day, twice a day, that you will die, then you will naturally move toward knowing higher dimensions of perception. People think they are immortal, that is why they have time to live foolish lives. But if you know that today could be your last day, would there be time to get angry with anybody? Would there be time to do anything stupid with your life?

If there is anything that is truly close to a spiritual process, in the normal course of life, that is sports. Swami Vivekananda went to the extent of saying, "In kicking a ball or playing a game, you are much closer to the Divine than you will ever be in prayer." You can pray without involvement, but you cannot play sports without involvement, and involvement is the essence of life.
