THIS ARTICLE WILL CLEAN ALL YOUR SUPERSTITIONS AND MAKE YOUR LIFE BEAUTIFUL ANYONE WHO IS STRONG CAN PRACTICE IT IN ANY YUGA(ERA). SPIRITUALITY IS DEMOCRATIC(MONOISM).GOD IS A DEMOCRAT AND NOT A DICTATOR.THIS IS THE ULTIMATE OCEAN IN WHICH ENTIRE MANKIND WITH ALL THEIR RELIGIONS WILL MERGE.THE IDEA OF LOVE ALL,PEACE,FORGIVENESS,BEING MERCIFUL CONTRADICTS THE IDEA OF EVEN WANTING SOMEONE TO ROT IN THE ILLUSIONARY HELL.ONLY THE MOST SUPERSTITIOUS MAN CAN THINK OF AN IDEA CALLED HELL SWAMI VIVEKANANDA SPEAKS TO YOU THROUGH THIS ARTICLE ALONG WITH SOME ADDITIONS FROM MY OWN FREE SOUL.
Referring to history, we see that only that fragment which is fit will survive, and what makes fit to survive but character? Advaita of your Vedanta will be the future religion of all thinking humanity~~Swami Vivekananda
All knowledge that the world has ever received comes from the mind; the infinite library of the universe is in our own mind.The light of Soul provides the knowledge to the mind.
The knowledge is dependent on the purity of the prophet.If the prophet removes all his ignorance via meditation,religion will contain high standard truth else it will contain some of the superstitions of the prophet.Ignorance in humans is attracted more to superstitions.Witches,Satan,Jinn,Ghost,Hell etc are created by your own fear,beliefs and negative thought-form.Whatever you think,you create.Think great thoughts and pure thoughts.When Allah is everywhere,where is the place for Satan,Jinn,Hell etc unless you are creating it with you own thought and converting the divine energy of Allah into Satan,Jinn,Hell etc.
This is just one of the methods to practice Advaita Vedanta.Vedanta means end of the Vedas or Conclusion of the Vedas or Upanishad. Anyone can practice it in any Yuga. Soul has neither time nor space nor country so the Yogi has absolutely no impact of the Yuga in Advaita.
I have tried to compile the already existing truth to make it extremely simple so that everyone can follow it.You cannot teach a child any more than you can grow a plant. All you can do is on the negative side — you can only help. It is a manifestation from within; it develops its own nature — you can only take away obstructions.
When the real history of India will be unearthed, it will be proved that, as in matters of religion, so in fine arts, India is the primal Guru of the whole world.
Our Politicians can also follow Advaita even in hectic schedules.I send love to all our politicians irrespective of which group they work for.I have started seeing perfection in our politicians but what is more important is that they should see perfection in themselves.Agitate ever so much for your rights and privileges, but remember that so long as we do not truly elevate ourselves by rousing intensely the feeling of self-respect in the nation, so long our hope of gaining rights and privileges is like the day-dream of Alnascar.
Through Bhoga (enjoyment) Yoga will come in time. But alas, such is the lot of my countrymen that, not to speak of possessing yoga, they cannot even have a little Bhoga(enjoyment)! Suffering all sorts of indignities they can with the utmost difficulty only meet the barest needs of the body — and even that everyone cannot do! It is strange that such a state of affairs does not disturb our sleep and rouse us to our immediate duties.
Soul exists within vibratory creation and beyond vibratory creation.Within Vibratory creation, it has sound and divine consciousness.When you go beyond vibratory creation in the Black hole then you see your own soul as dark-less darkness and light-less light,i.e white pin like lights in pitch darkness with no sound,no divine consciousness.This is called the silence of the soul or Moksha or Nirvana or Void.There is no thought in you,no breath in you but eternal bliss in Samadhi. Before taking births on earth ,you were in this Absolute state and will go back to this Absolute state. Moksha means realizing in the present that you are the pure Soul.
The essence of Vedanta(Conclusion of the Vedas) is that there is but one Being and that every soul is that Being in full, not a part of that Being.
Any point in an infinity is the center of infinity and is infinity if full not part of infinity
You have to grow from inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.
Al Hallaj Mystic –I saw my Lord with the eye of the heart. I said: Who art Thou?He answered: Thou.
Why is there so much disturbance, so much fighting and quarreling in the name of God? There has been more bloodshed in the name of God than for any other cause, because people never went to the fountain-head; they were content only to give a mental assent to the customs of their forefathers, and wanted others to do the same. What right has a man to say he has a soul if he does not feel it, or that there is a God if he does not see Him? If there is a God we must see Him, if there is a soul we must perceive it; otherwise it is better not to believe. It is better to be an outspoken atheist than a hypocrite –Swami Vivekananda
Anyone who is strong can practice Advaita or non-dualism. Advaita must be practiced without any expectation and without the feeling of attaining anything.You do not have to be born in any particular family to practice Advaita. Only a strong will power is needed.The ignorance will be gone eventually and you realize that you were always the pure infinite soul or God without beginning,without end and immortal.Ignorance make a person live in duality and makes him believe that the other person is different than you.But in reality All is the Self or Brahman or Infinite Soul. The saint, the sinner, the lamb, the tiger, the president,the prime minister,the father,the mother,the brother,the sister,the relatives,the children,the beggar,the Hindu,the Muslim,the Christian,the Jew,the Parsi, even the murderer, as far as they have any reality, can be nothing else, because there is nothing else.
The Hindu does not want to live upon words and theories. If there are existences beyond the ordinary sensuous existence, he wants to come face to face with them. If there is a soul in him which is not matter, if there is an all-merciful universal soul, he will go to Him direct. He must see Him, and that alone can destroy all doubts. So the best proof a Hindu sage gives about the soul, about God is— “I have seen the soul; I have seen God.”
Brahman means the infinite Soul or light of Consciousness.Everyone in this world in Brahman.The name Shudra,Vaishya,Kshatriya and Brahman is based on the level of ignorance burnt during meditation or prayers to realize Moksha under strict guidance/love of a Guru.Children of the same family can have different Caste/Varna/Character based on their spiritual level reached but in Advaita it doesn’t matter.In reality all are nothing but Brahman.While practicing Advaita,you don’t have to bother about your caste/character based on ignorance.Thought and Matter are co-existent.What you think you create and what you do not think you eliminate from your system.Just remember,you are already free.Your soul or Self is only your Guru in Advaita and you do not have to depend on anyone.The speed of Advaita is fastest.
What does Vedanta teach us? In the first place, it teaches that you need not even go out of yourself to know the truth. All the past and all the future are here in the present. No man ever saw the past. Did any one of you see the past? When you think you are knowing the past, you only imagine the past in the present moment. To see the future, you would have to bring it down to the present, which is the only reality — the rest is imagination. This present is all that is. There is only the One. All is here right now. One moment in infinite time is quite as complete and all-inclusive as every other moment. All that is and was and will be is here in the present. Let anybody try to imagine anything outside of it — he will not succeed.
Never hate anyone.Hating someone means hating yourself.Hate pulls you down from spiritual path.The person you love,the person you hate or the person abusing you or the person you ignore is actually you.Maya makes you see them differently.But at times the self has to be separated from another person because of his huge cloud of ignorance which can pull you down from the path of spiritual progress.Although you realize that you exist in different bodies,you would prefer company of people on high and positive energy level.Those people you want to ignore,just see them in your heart as a thought and melt them into pure love light,bless them, they too will one day 100% make spiritual progress and reach the state of Advaita. But make sure you ignore them to prevent you from being pulled down but keep sending them love.
Do not disclose your spiritual experience to anyone till you become ripe.When you become ripe,the fruit will automatically fall off and you will realize true freedom and be alive.You don’t have to die to be free.Disclosing spiritual experience means depleting your energy and pulling yourself down.
Love your self first,If you don’t love your self,how can you love your self existing in other bodies
Vedanta proposes no sin nor sinner. No God to be afraid of. He is the one being of whom we shall never be afraid, because He is our own Self. There is only one being of whom you cannot possibly be afraid; He is that. Then is not he really the most superstitious person who has fear of God? There may be someone who is afraid of his shadow; but even he is not afraid of himself. God is man’s very Self. He is that one being whom you can never possibly fear. What is all this nonsense, the fear of the Lord entering into a man, making him tremble and so on? Lord bless us that we are not all in the lunatic asylum! But if most of us are not lunatics, why should we invent such ideas as fear of God?
If you do not see negativity or sin in people who are nothing but your very own self,crime will vanish automatically.But judging people all the time,accusing them,giving children the negative energy of fear,beating them up, creates negativity that forms crime.Eventually the crime grows.Children should be brought up in the atmosphere of divine love,belief in the pure self,Honesty and pure independence.Even animals are kind to their children.No racism,no superstition,no feeling of state identity,language identity,fear of lizards and puppy,no anger should ever be fed to them.Avoid materialistic pampering or encouragement of taking gifts from others.When they practice Advaita,they will become brilliant students.If you are frustrated parents,do not opt for children.If your children damage someone else property,be honest,ask your children to apologize and pay for the damage.
Black magic means using your energy, wasting it, in dominating others. White magic means using the same methods, but using your energy in dominating your own life, becoming a master of yourself.The only useful thing is to dominate yourself. Dominating others or being dominated is useless, a wastage of your energy. Nothing is achieved through it — just an egoistic feeling that you can dominate or get dominated.
In present times people smoke and drink.This should not stop you from practicing Advaita. You will eventually develop other beneficial hobbies so just don’t feel guilty.
You are 100% the sole cause of every incidence good or bad happening in your life or even in the so-called religious group or community.If your energy level is high and positive,the environment will act accordingly.There will be peace in your house.If your energy is low,it will lead to unhappiness,divorce,failure and discontentment.Good opportunities come but you spoil them with your own ignorance(negativity).Then you don’t try to burn ignorance and expect better opportunities and then again result is just like the previous one.Blaming others can fulfill false ego but then it is a lie.
But the mind is just a chattering box. If something happens, immediately you will go and spread the good news that something has happened to you. Then you have wasted it. And if people are impressed, then all you have gained is their good opinion and nothing else. This is not a good bargain. Wait! A moment will come when your energy becomes accumulated; it reaches a point where it becomes integrated, transformed. Then things will happen around you without your doing anything. And only then can you help others to be their own masters — when you are your own master.
All expansion is life, all contraction is death.All love is expansion, all selfishness is contraction. Love is therefore the only law of life. He who loves lives, he who is selfish is dying. Therefore love for love’s sake, because it is law of life, just as you breathe to live.
So long as there is desire or want, it is a sure sign that there is imperfection. A perfect, free being cannot have any desire.You will eventually get rid of those desires through constant meditation without any guilt.Just do not worry.
In the world take always the position of the giver. Give everything and look for no return. Give love, give help, give service, give any little thing you can, but keep out barter. Make no conditions and none will be imposed. Let us give out of our own bounty, just as the Soul gives to us.If you give money to a friend,don’t give with an expectation of the money being returned.If it comes back to you,then its OK.
Love goes on giving and it will never say it has given you enough. There is no end to love’s bounty. Love goes on pouring its gifts and yet it feels shy that it is insufficient. If you tell a woman that she has done a lot for her child, if she is a nurse, she will thankfully acknowledge your compliments. But if she is a mother she will protest saying, “I could do only a little; a lot remains to be done.” A nurse is aware of what she has done; a mother is aware of what she has yet to do. And if a mother brags about her sacrifices for her child, she is a nurse and not a mother. Love is always aware that a lot more remains to be done.
No matter whatever is taught in religion,do not force yourself to believe or agree or practice something which your body,soul and mind doesn’t permit.
Soft-brained people, weak-minded, chicken-hearted, cannot find the truth. One has to be free, and as broad as the sky
Stand up, be bold, and take the blame on your own shoulders. Do not go about throwing mud at others; for all the faults you suffer from, you are the sole and only cause.
Tell the truth boldly, whether it hurts or not. Never pander to weakness. If truth is too much for intelligent people and sweeps them away, let them go; the sooner the better.
The first sign that you are becoming spiritual is that you are becoming cheerful.
The great secret of true success, of true happiness, is this: the man or woman who asks for no return, the perfectly unselfish person, is the most successful.
The greatest help to spiritual life is meditation. In meditation we divest ourselves of all material conditions and feel our divine nature. We do not depend upon any external help in meditation. The touch of the soul can paint the brightest color even in the dingiest places; it can cast a fragrance over the vilest thing; it can make the wicked divine–and all enmity, all selfishness is effaced.
Sanatan is the description of the Dharma. Sanatan means eternal,without beginning,without end.The Soul is without beginning and without end. Sanatan Dharma means “The truth of the soul”.Dharma means Truth.In reality,there is one infinite Soul with no name.Prophets may give it names.How can the religion of the Soul/Atma have any name?Hinduism was the name given by the British to distinguish Sanatan Dharma from all other sects.
Adwaita can be practiced by anyone in the world who is strong and wants to get rid of superstitions.Fear is the greatest negative energy.Always say I have no fear and gradually that fear will vanish from you. One party says thought is caused by matter, and the other says matter is caused by thought. Both statements are wrong; matter and thought are coexistent. There is a third something of which both matter and thought are products.It’s the INFINITE SOUL OR ATMA.
Unity is knowledge, diversity is ignorance. This knowledge is your birthright. I have not to teach it to you. There never were different religions in the world. We are all destined to have salvation(Moksha), whether we will it or not. You have to attain it in the long run and become free, because it is your nature to be free.
We are already free, only we do not know it, and we do not know what we have been doing. Throughout all religious systems and ideals is the same morality; one thing only is preached: “Be unselfish, love others.”
Sanatan Dharma believes that all minds are different but there is Oneness of the Soul.In order to attain to that realization in the conscious plane, some instrumentality is required. The mind is that instrument in us. But it is a non – intelligent substance. It only appears to be intelligent through the light of the Atman(Soul) behind. Only a moron can say that women have less intelligence than men.
Therefore the author of the Panchadashi (III.40) says: “[(Sanskrit)]– the Shakti appears to be intelligent by the reflection of the intelligence of the Atman(Soul).” Hence the mind also appears to us like an intelligent substance. Therefore it is certain that you won’t be able to know the Soul, the Essence of Intelligence, through the mind. You have to go beyond the mind — for only the Atman(Soul) exists there — there the object of knowledge becomes the same as the instrument of knowledge. The knower, knowledge, and the instrument of knowledge become one and the same. It is therefore that the Shruti says, “[(Sanskrit)]– through what are you to know the Eternal Subject?” The real fact is that there is a state beyond the conscious plane, where there is no duality of the knower, knowledge, and the instrument of knowledge etc. When the mind is merged, that state is perceived.
The entire universe is a matrix.There is only one infinite soul.Infinity cannot be multiplied.The soul has infinite knowledge and infinite love.This soul is God or You.Remove the cloud of ignorance around you and then see the truth.You are present with many illusional faces and bodies on this planet.So with every body and in every face,you are beautiful. No-one is ugly.It’s the cloud of ignorance surrounding you that sees ugliness and separate identities.The sooner this ignorance is removed,the better it is for you.If you are seeing ugliness in other,you will eventually find yourself ugly and suffer from inferiority complex due to ignorance.When your ignorance sees ugliness,you absorb ugliness.
The concept of secularism comes from Sanatan Dharma(Hinduism) and was introduced in the USA by Swami Vivekananda.Then it became a popular concept throughout the world.Many countries are still striving to become secular,the earlier,the better.This article will also make you understand what true secularism means and how beautiful/peaceful it feels to be secular.Secular means having a heart without dislike or hatred.You may have an honest opinion which might sound good/bad but heart should be free of hatred. As soon as you make a sect, you protest against universal brotherhood. Those who really feel universal brotherhood or universal oneness do not talk much, but their very actions speak aloud.
Understanding God/Soul in Dualism or Dualistic thinking .
Manifestations of God(PARAMBRAHMAN or PARAM-ATMA or ABSOLUTE or SOUL or SELF)
Supreme Soul, Divine Consciousness,Aum(Sound)
Shiva is Father( Absolute )/Soul/Self within and beyond vibratory creations.
Brahm or Brahma or Abrahm is the divine consciousness(Christ/Krishna consciousness)also called Abraham within vibratory creation within the self.
Vishnu is the vibratory sound called Aum/OM heard during meditation.Also called Olmen/Ameen/Amen/Hum.It is the sound of Shiva/father/Soul within vibratory creations.
Allah is a Sanskrit word meaning power(Shakti) of Shiva/Soul also has synonyms Kali,Durga,Sati etc has many names in Hinduism /Islam.Power of the Brahma/divine consciousness/Self is called Saraswati/Saraiswati/Sarah(knowledge) in Hinduism/Christianity.Power is denoted as female.Rama means the light within your heart or Heart Chakra.Rama Navami/Ramadan is celebration of this light.Meditate and realize that Trimurti/Trinity/Tridev/Tridevi is YOU.
Allah says about the soul in the Qur’aan: “They ask you concerning the soul. Say that the soul is from from Allah and you have not been given knowledge of it except a little.”
The idea of supernatural beings may rouse to a certain extent the power of action in man, but it also brings spiritual decay.These great souls are signposts on the way. That is all they are. They say, “Onward, brothers!” We cling to them; we never want to move. We do not want to think; we want others to think for us. The messengers fulfill their mission. They ask to be up and doing. A hundred years later we cling to the message and go to sleep.Then clouds and clouds of ignorance cover us and we do nothing to remove it.Then we become Angry,Abusive,Quarrelsome,Violent,Racist,Materialistic Corrupt,Dishonest,go on a killing humanity spree in the name of religion and become destructive.Religion then becomes nothing but false,boastful pride to harass and insult others.Ignorance bars a person from seeking out the truth or making any effort to do so.People get attached to some book or some old customs which they don’t understand in true light nor are they strong enough to give it up.They imagine Hell and some negative thought-forms and mind becomes hellish and also suicidal.
Talking about faith and belief and doctrine is easy, but it is so difficult to build character and to stem the tide of the senses. We succumb. We become hypocrites. …
Religion is not a doctrine, not a rule. It is a process. That is all. Doctrines and rules are all for exercise. By that exercise we get strong and at last break the bonds and become free. Doctrine is of no use except for gymnastics. … Through exercise the soul becomes perfect. That exercise is stopped when you say, “I believe.” …
There is one religion, and there are many sects. The moment you give it a name, individualize it and separate it from the rest, it is a sect, no more a religion. A sect proclaims its own truth and declares that there is no truth anywhere else.Religion believes that there has been, and still is, one religion in the world. There never were two religions. It is the same religion presenting different aspects in different places.The task is to conceive the proper understanding of the goal and scope of humanity.
Sects, ceremonies, and books, so far as they are the means of a man’s realizing his own nature, are all right; when he has realized that, he gives up everything. “I reject the Vedas!” is the last word of the Vedanta(conclusion of the Vedas) philosophy. Ritual, hymns, and scriptures, through which he has traveled to freedom, vanish for him. “So’ham, So’ham”– i am He, I am He and to say “Thou” to God is blasphemy, for he is “one with the Father”(Moksha).You do not have to die to for salvation. Aham Brahmansmi,I am God,I am Brahman.Whoever you pray to did have a past life like you do and gradually realized Moksha. Either a dualist worship Moksha attained Man/Woman as infinite Soul or the infinite Soul without the body makes no difference between the names of God.Infinite Soul is neither male nor female.Only the body has sex distinction.
Nasadiya Sukta, of Rig Veda is the theory of origin of the universe ‘ “Then there was neither aught nor naught, nor air, nor sky, nor anything. What covered all? Where rested all? Then death was not, nor deathlessness, nor change to night and day.” The translation loses a good deal of the poetical beauty. “Then death was not, nor deathlessness, nor change to night and day”; the very sound of the Sanskrit is musical. “That existed, that breath, covering as it were, that God’s existence; but it did not begin to move.” … ‘ “Gloom existed first.” Those of you who have ever been in India or any tropical country, and have seen the bursting of the monsoon, will understand the majesty of these words. I remember three poets’ attempts to picture this. Milton says, “No light, but rather darkness visible.” Kalidasa says, “Darkness which can be penetrated with a needle,” but none comes near this Vedic description, “Gloom hidden in gloom.
” Everything is parching and sizzling, the whole creation seems to be burning away, and for days it has been so, when one afternoon there is in one corner of the horizon a speck of cloud, and in less than half an hour it has extended unto the whole earth, until, as it were, it is covered with cloud, cloud over cloud, and then it bursts into a tremendous deluge of rain.’ Hence the first principle, That One – tad ekam – cannot be characterized. It is without qualities or attributes, even negative ones. To apply to it any description is to limit the limitless. Yet after attempting to describe such a state presumed to be prior to creation the hymn has the humility to admit that all this is a surmise, for it is not possible to be sure of things which lie so far beyond human knowledge.He says that they mention such theories casually so that the enquirer may please himself if he be so inclined. The world appears as a passing shadow in a flood of light. Light is necessary to see the shadow also. But the shadow does not deserve any special notice or analysis. Aitareya Upanishad. ‘In the beginning verily, Atman (Self) alone was this Universe…. nothing else whatsoever was active.’ The emphasis is on the words nothing else. As an individual can understand the world only with reference to himself, the Rishi says that before the creation of the pluralistic world all that existed was the Self or Atman or free Soul of the seeker which is nothing but the All Pervading reality, Brahman(free soul or supreme soul).
Brahmasutra—-The only deliverance from the endless revolution from the wheel of Sansara was realized to lie in an escape to a region which,because there is no consciousness there,must necessarily be a barren and an empty land.It is an escape and an attainment,but in the escape from the bondage of the self.One is emptied of all sense of realization. Atma(Soul) is Silence.Shankara on Brahmasutra 111.ii.17
There is a Hindu legend that the Lord was once incarnated on earth as a pig. He had a pig mate and in course of time several little pigs were born to Him. He was very happy with His family, living in the mire, squealing with joy, forgetting His divine glory and lordship. The gods became exceedingly concerned and came to the earth to beg Him to give up the pig body and return to heaven. But the Lord would have none of that; He drove them away. He said He was very happy and did not want to be disturbed. Seeing no other course, the gods destroyed the pig body of the Lord. At once He regained His divine majesty and was astonished that He could have found any joy in being a pig.
Wash yourself again and again until you are cleansed of all the superstitions that have clung to you through the ages.
People behave in the same way. Whenever they hear of the Impersonal God, they say, “What will become of my individuality? — my individuality will go!” Next time that thought comes, remember the pig, and then think what an infinite mine of happiness you have, each one of you. How pleased you are with your present condition! But when you realise what you truly are, you will be astonished that you were unwilling to give up your sense-life. What is there in your personality? It is any better than that pig life? And this you do not want to give up! Lord bless us all!
Therefore Vedanta formulates, not universal brotherhood, but universal oneness. I am the same as any other man, as any animal — good, bad, anything. It is one body, one mind, one soul throughout. Spirit never dies. There is no death anywhere, not even for the body. Not even the mind dies. How can even the body die? One leaf may fall — does the tree die? The universe is my body. See how it continues. All minds are mine. With all feet I walk. Through all mouths I speak. In everybody I reside.
Why can I not feel it? Because of that individuality, that piggishness. You have become bound up with this mind and can only be here, not there. What is immortality? How few reply, “It is this very existence of ours!” Most people think this is all mortal and dead — that God is not here, that they will become immortal by going to heaven. They imagine that they will see God after death. But if they do not see Him here and now, they will not see Him after death. Though they all believe in immortality, they do not know that immortality is not gained by dying and going to heaven, but by giving up this piggish individuality, by not tying ourselves down to one little body. Immortality is knowing ourselves as one with all, living in all bodies, perceiving through all minds. We are bound to feel in other bodies than this one. We are bound to feel in other bodies. What is sympathy? Is there any limit to this sympathy, this feeling in our bodies?
We shall understand this by and by, and then see it: all the heavens — everything — are here, now, and they really are nothing but appearances on the Divine Presence. This Presence is much greater than all the earths and heavens. People think that this world is bad and imagine that heaven is somewhere else. This world is not bad. It is God/Soul/Atma/Param-Atma Himself if you know it. It is a hard thing even to understand, harder than to believe. The murderer who is going to be hanged tomorrow is all God, perfect God. It is very hard to understand, surely; but it can be understood.
Gyan Yoga or Jnana Yoga in Advaita
Your Mantra is Soham or Om Soham or Shivoham. Sit in lotus posture with spinal chord straight and relaxed or lie down in bed without pillow.You have to always sit,eat,stand and sleep in such a manner that the spinal chord is always straight and relaxed.The crown chakra must be in alignment with the root chakra so that energy flows unhindered..You must develop the habit of good posture.The divine energy flows through your spinal chord giving beautiful sensation. Breath in and say in your thought Soooooooooo and breathe out Haaaaaaaaaam. The same Sanskrit mantra is Hamsa or Hong-Sau.
Soham (so ‘ham सो ऽहम्) is the Sanskrit for “I myself” or “It is I” or “He is I” or “I am That”.
When it applies to a person’s name, according to Vedic philosophy it means identifying oneself with the universe or ultimate reality.
- Sooooo… is the sound of inhalation, and is remembered in the mind along with that inhalation.
- Hummmm… is the sound of exhalation, and is remembered in the mind along with that exhalation.
- Say “So’ham, So’ham” whatever comes. Tell yourself this even in eating, walking, suffering. Tell the mind this incessantly—that what we see never existed, that there is only “I”. Flash–the dream will break! Think day and night, this universe is zero, only Soul is. Have intense desire to get free.
- Slowly the breath moves from naval to nose then gradually between nose and third eye,then you are in Third eye meditation.
- With gradual practice you can shift directly to the third eye.
Go on saying, “I am free.” Never mind if the next moment delusion comes and says, “I am bound.” Dehypnotize the whole thing.
You can also say to yourself and believe “I am the infinite unselfish love existing everywhere”Whatever you say and believe repeatedly is a Mantra.The Mantra will make you realize that you indeed is the infinite unselfish love.
Those that practise Mahayoga, either once a day, or twice a day, or thrice, or always, know them to be gods. Yoga is divided into two parts. One is called Abhava, and the other, Mahayoga. Where one’s self is meditated upon as zero, and bereft of quality, that is called Abhava. That in which one sees the self as full of bliss and bereft of all impurities, and one with God/Soul, is called Mahayoga. The Yogi, by each one, realizes his Self. The other Yogas that we read and hear of, do not deserve to be ranked with the excellent Mahayoga in which the Yogi finds himself and the whole universe as God. This is the highest of all Yogas.
Not receiving any present from anybody, even when one is suffering terribly, is what is called Aparigraha. The idea is, when a man receives a gift from another, his heart becomes impure, he becomes low, he loses his independence, he becomes bound and attached.
If you think that you are bound, you remain bound; you make your own bondage. If you know that you are free, you are free this moment. This is knowledge, knowledge of freedom. Freedom is the goal of all nature.
Learn to feel yourself in other bodies, to know that we are all one. Throw all other nonsense to the winds. Spit out your actions, good or bad, and never think of them again. What is done is done. Throw off superstition. Have no weakness even in the face of death. Be free.
When you are on high positive energy,excess eating and sleeping too much will disappear.Few hours of sleep will give you the satisfaction of sleeping for many days.You will feel happiness and your body will vibrate with divine love.People on high spiritual energy will contact you.Work and studies will bring happiness.The surrounding will be extremely peaceful.
Wear Silk or Cotton clothes which is loose fit during meditation. Saree,Salwar Kurta Dopatta,pajama,kurta,churidaar,Gagra choli,Dhoti,Lungi,Pagari,Hindu pathans wore loose Pathani dress,crystal gem jewellery that enhances energy field and all Indian dress is meant for meditation and are very much Hindu origin.Their colors is also based on the colors we see in meditation.

Follow the Golden rules of Hinduism
Whoever you know,see them in your heart melt them into transparent light of love.
You are what your thoughts are.Always believe and say to yourself “I am infinite love”.”I am nothing but love”"I am the infinite light of consciousness”.”I am the soul”"The entire universe is within me”"I have no fear”"I have no hate”"I have no selfishness”"I have no ego”"I have no pride”"I am not boastful”Who would I boast to? and who would I show ego to?All is my self everywhere.”I am devoid of anger”"I am devoid of lust”.”"I was always the infinite soul”"I do not have to do anything to become someone”I exist everywhere”.”Anyone who shower hatred towards me,may his negative energy be converted to love energy and go back to him”"I have no revenge because all are me”"There is no past,there is no future,time is illusion,Let me do my duty in the present”.”I have no people consciousness,what they say about me doesn’t matter because they are all me”"I love body exercise”"I love my job and will do the service with full love and dedication”"I do everything for love,because I am infinite love and not for gaining illusional good/bad Karma”"Everyone around me is myself,I desire no name nor fame nor rewards”"I am devoid of both good and bad Karma”
If you are entering into non-dualism from dualism.See the thought of Krishna,Shiva,Christ,Allah which is your own soul or self in your heart and melt them to love light.See the earth in your heart melting and becoming love energy.Then practice what is written above.
Those who practice dualism is also trying to become strong.Thought and Matter are co-existent.Heaven and Hell,the temporary zone is created by your own thoughts and you worship your own soul either with body or without body.We should respect your worship too because it might make you strong.Whatever you dream and think of, you create. If it is hell, you die and see hell. If it is evil and Satan, you get a Satan. If ghosts, you get ghosts. Whatever you think, that you become. If you have to think, think good thoughts, great thoughts. This taking for granted that you are weak little worms! By declaring we are weak, we become weak, we do not become better. Suppose we put out the light, close the windows, and call the room dark. Think of the nonsense! What good does it do me to say I am a sinner? If I am in the dark, let me light a lamp. The whole thing is gone. Yet how curious is the nature of men! Though always conscious that the universal mind is behind their life, they think more of Satan, of darkness and lies. You tell them the truth — they do not see it; they like darkness better.By work alone, men may get to where Buddha got largely by meditation or Christ by prayer. Buddha was a working Jnani, Christ was a Bhakta, but the same goal was reached by both of them.Sometimes I agree that there is some good in the dualistic method: it helps many who are weak. If a man wants you to show him the polar star, you first point out to him a bright star near it, then a less bright star, then a dim star, and then the polar star. This process makes it easy for him to see it. All the various practices and training’s Bibles and Gods, are but the rudiments of religion, the kindergartens of religion.But then I think of the other side. How long will the world have to wait to reach the truth if it follows this slow, gradual process? How long? And where is the surety that it will ever succeed to any appreciable degree? It has not so far. After all, gradual or not gradual, easy or not easy to the weak, is not the dualistic method based on falsehood? Are not all the prevalent religious practices often weakening and therefore wrong? They are based on a wrong idea, a wrong view of man. Would two wrong make one right? Would the lie become truth? Would darkness become light?We know that Moksha is the nature of the soul,why waste time and energy on temporary illusional heaven and hell created by your thoughts. If you cannot attain salvation in this life, what proof is there that you can attain it in the life or lives to come?You are the infinite Soul,there is no place you can go,you are everywhere.
If any negative thoughts come to you.See that thought as a black ball melting into pink love light within you or transparent love energy.Gradually the negative thoughts will stop.
See Afghanistan, Pakistan,Bangladesh,Nepal,China,Maldives and Srilanka in your heart and melt it into love light.Love must be sent to neighbors.Words are not important,good thoughts matter.Your love will surely bring peace.
See the Kaaba in your heart,see all your Muslim brothers bending in prayer,melt them in love light so that all they realize is infinite love which is their reality.
However we may receive blows, and however knocked about we may be, the Soul is there and is never injured. We are that Infinite.
Perfection is always infinite. We are the Infinite already.You and I, and all beings, are trying to manifest that infinity.
Realize your true nature. That is all there is to do. Know yourself as you are—infinite spirit. That is practical religion. Everything else is impractical, for everything else will perish
Truth, purity, and unselfishness — whenever these are present, there is no power below or above the sun to crush the possessor thereof. Equipped with these, one individual is able to face the whole universe in opposition.
Good motives, sincerity, and infinite love can conquer the world. One single soul possessed of these virtues can destroy the dark designs of millions of hypocrites and brutes.
On a high energy level,you attract people with high energy.There will be internal and external peace.You are responsible if you are facing any disharmony around you.Do not complain,meditate and raise your energy level.
These are what Vedanta(Conclusion of the Vedas) has not to give. No man to be singled out from the rest of mankind — “You are worms, and we are the Lord God!” — none of that. If you are the Lord God, I also am the Lord God. So Vedanta knows no sin. There are mistakes but no sin; and in the long run everything is going to be all right. No Satan — none of this nonsense. Vedanta believes in only one sin, only one in the world, and it is this: the moment you think you are a sinner or anybody is a sinner, that is sin. From that follows every other mistake or what is usually called sin. There have been many mistakes in our lives. But we are going on. Glory be unto us that we have made mistakes! Take a long look at your past life. If your present condition is good, it has been caused by all the past mistakes as well as successes. Glory be unto success! Glory be unto mistakes! Do not look back upon what has been done. Go ahead!
Each soul is potentially divine.The goal is to manifest this Divinity within by controlling nature, external and internal.Do this either by work, or worship, or psychic control, or philosophy — by one, or more, or all of these — and be free.This is the whole of religion. Doctrines, or dogmas, or rituals, or books, or temples, or forms, are but secondary details.
Christ said, “I and my father are one”(MOKSHA), and you repeat it. Yet it has not helped mankind. For more than nineteen hundred years men have not understood that saying. They make Christ the savior of men. He is God and we are worms! Similarly in India. In every country, this sort of belief is the backbone of every sect. For thousands of years millions and millions all over the world have been taught to worship the Lord of the world, the Incarnations, the saviors the prophets. They have been taught to consider themselves helpless, miserable creatures and to depend upon the mercy of some person or persons for salvation. There are no doubt many marvelous things in such beliefs. But even at their best, they are but kindergartens of religion, and they have helped but little. Men are still hypnotized into abject degradation. However, there are some strong souls who get over that illusion. The hour comes when great men and women shall arise and cast off these kindergartens of religion and shall make vivid and powerful the true religion, the worship of the spirit by the spirit.
When you think you are a body, are apart from the universe; when you think; you are a soul, you are a spark from the great Eternal Fire; when you think you are the Âtman (Self), you are All.
This forms the one great question asked by Vedanta: Why are people so afraid? The answer is that they have made themselves helpless and dependent on others. We are so lazy, we do not want to do anything for ourselves. We want a Personal God, a savior or a prophet to do everything for us. The very rich man never walks, always goes in the carriage; but in the course of years, he wakes up one day paralyzed all over. Then he begins to feel that the way he had lived was not good after all. No man can walk for me. Every time one did, it was to my injury. If everything is done for a man by another, he will lose the use of his own limbs. Anything we do ourselves, that is the only thing we do. Anything that is done for us by another never can be ours. You cannot learn spiritual truths from my lectures. If you have learnt anything, I was only the spark that brought it out, made it flash. That is all the prophets and teachers can do. All this running after help is foolishness.
What religion can paint a heaven which is not like this earth? And it is all art, only this art is being made known to us gradually. We, with five senses, look upon this world and find it gross, having color form, sound, and the like. Suppose I develop an electric sense — all will change. Suppose my senses grow finer — you will all appear changed. If I change, you change. If I go beyond the power of the senses, you will appear as spirit and God. Things are not what they seem.
You come with billion of faces and walk on earth.All the faces are beautiful and you do not find anyone ugly.
Perfection is always infinite. We are the Infinite already.You and I, and all beings, are trying to manifest that infinity.
Realize your true nature. That is all there is to do. Know yourself as you are—infinite spirit. That is practical religion. Everything else is impractical, for everything else will perish.
Worship of society and popular opinions is idolatry. The soul has no sex, no country, no place, no time.
Is there any sex-distinction in the Atman (Self)? Out with the differentiation between man and woman—all is Atman! Give up the identification with the body, and stand up!
Mind you, this is life’s experience: if you really want the good of others, the whole universe may stand against you and cannot hurt you. It must crumble before your power of the Lord Himself in you if you are sincere and really unselfish.
We have been low animals once. We think they are something different from us. I hear, Western people say, “The world was created for us.” If tigers could write books, they would say, man was created for them and that man is a most sinful animal, because he does not allow him (the tiger) to catch him easily. The worm that crawls under your feet today is a God to be.
Stand as a rock; you are indestructible. You are the Self (atman), the God of the universe.
Of all the scriptures of the world it is the Vedas alone that declare that even the study of the Vedas is secondary. The real study is “that by which we realize the Unchangeable”. And that is neither reading, for believing, nor reasoning, but super-conscious perception, or Samâdhi.
The whole universe is one. There is only one Self in the universe, only One Existence, and that One Existence, when it passes through the forms of time, space, causation, is called by different names, buddhi, fine matter, gross matter, all mental and physical forms. Everything in the universe is that One, appearing in various forms. When a little part of it comes, as it were, into this network of time, space and causation, it takes forms. Take off the network, and it is all one.The whole universe is one. There is only one Self in the universe, only One Existence.
There is no help for you outside of yourself; you are the creator of the universe. Like the silkworm you have built a cocoon around yourself…. Burst your own cocoon and come out aw the beautiful butterfly, as the free soul. Then alone you will see Truth.
They alone live whose lives are in the whole universe, and the more we concentrate our lives on limited things, the faster we go towards death. Those moments alone we live when our lives are in the universe, in others; and living this little life is death, simply death, and that is why the fear of death comes.
This is the secret of spiritual life: to think that I am the Atman, and that the whole of this universe with all its relations, with all its good and all its evil, is but as a series of paintings—scenes on a canvas—of which I am the witness.
When we come to non-attachment then we can understand the marvelous mystery of the universe: how it is intense activity and at the same time intense peace, how it is work every moment and rest every moment.
You, as body, mind, or soul, are a dream, but what you really are, is Being, Consciousness, Bliss. You are the God of this universe. You are creating the whole universe and drawing it in.
Your Atman is the support of the universe—whose support do you stand in need of? Wait with patience and love and strength. If helpers are not ready now, they will come in time. Why should we be in a hurry? The real working force of all great work is in its almost unperceived beginnings.
We must plunge heart and soul and body into the work. And until we are ready to sacrifice everything else to one Idea and to one alone, we never, never will see the Light.
We are ever free if we would only believe it, only have faith enough. You are the soul, free and eternal, ever free, ever blessed. Have faith enough and you will be free in a minute.
We believe that every being is divine, is God. Every soul is a sun covered over with clouds of ignorance; the difference between soul and soul is owing to the difference in density of these layers of clouds.
The Soul is not composed of any materials. It is unity indivisible. Therefore it must be indestructible.
There is only one sin. That is weakness…. The only saint is that soul that never weakens, faces everything, and determines to die game.
The Kingdom of Heaven is within us. He is there. He is the soul of our souls. See Him in your own soul. That is practical religion. That is freedom
The human soul has sojourned in lower and higher forms, migrating from one to another according to the samskaras or impressions, but it is only in the highest form as a human being that it attains to freedom.
Since the dawn of history, various extraordinary phenomena have been recorded as happening amongst human beings. Witnesses are not wanting in modern times to attest to the fact of such events, even in societies living under the full blaze of modern science. The vast mass of such evidence is unreliable, as coming from ignorant, superstitious, or fraudulent persons. In many instances the so-called miracles are imitations. But what do they imitate? It is not the sign of a candid and scientific mind to throw overboard anything without proper investigation. Surface scientists, unable to explain the various extraordinary mental phenomena, strive to ignore their very existence. They are, therefore, more culpable than those who think that their prayers are answered by a being, or beings, above the clouds, or than those who believe that their petitions will make such beings change the course of the universe. The latter have the excuse of ignorance, or at least of a defective system of education, which has taught them dependence upon such beings, a dependence which has become a part of their degenerate nature. The former have no such excuse.
For thousands of years such phenomena have been studied, investigated, and generalised, the whole ground of the religious faculties of man has been analysed, and the practical result is the science of Râja-Yoga. Raja-Yoga does not, after the unpardonable manner of some modern scientists, deny the existence of facts which are difficult to explain; on the other hand, it gently yet in no uncertain terms tells the superstitious that miracles, and answers to prayers, and powers of faith, though true as facts, are not rendered comprehensible through the superstitious explanation of attributing them to the agency of a being, or beings, above the clouds. It declares that each man is only a conduit for the infinite ocean of knowledge and power that lies behind mankind. It teaches that desires and wants are in man, that the power of supply is also in man; and that wherever and whenever a desire, a want, a prayer has been fulfilled, it was out of this infinite magazine that the supply came, and not from any supernatural being. The idea of supernatural beings may rouse to a certain extent the power of action in man, but it also brings spiritual decay. It brings dependence; it brings fear; it brings superstition. It degenerates into a horrible belief in the natural weakness of man. There is no supernatural, says the Yogi, but there are in nature gross manifestations and subtle manifestations. The subtle are the causes, the gross the effects. The gross can be easily perceived by the senses; not so the subtle. The practice of Raja-Yoga will lead to the acquisition of the more subtle perceptions.
Manusmriti Chapter 1 Verse 3 Original translation by Bhagawan Lahiri Mahasaya
You are alone.You automatically have become all that is in the world. You have no scope to think about any place, even for your accommodation, for you are everywhere.If you are no more, then the world is no more.You are infinite.You can know the cause of all, and you become the Perfect Being in meditation.
