Bhagavad Gita Verse 9.19

The Inner Rhythm of Being - In Gita Verse 9.19 O Arjuna, I give heat, and I withhold and send forth the rain. I am immortality, and I am also death personified. Both spirit and matter are in Me.Krishna is explaining us what Buddha said Continuum. Existence is Continuum. Look from scientific angle our entire body changes in 7 years. Noone can dispute it. Existences is whole body and it changes continuously, to which Buddha called Continuum.Look at the flame one disappears and other comes, look at a range of temperatures from freezing to boiling. Everything in the existences changes in character gradually or in very slight stages without any clear dividing points.What Krishna is saying Continuum is The Inner Rhythm of Being:Once in a while, even in ordinary life, it happens. You have those few moments when suddenly one day you wake up in the morning and everything seems to fit perfectly. The birds are singing, the air is fragrant, the sun is rising, and suddenly you feel that all is quiet. You are no longer separate for a moment...you feel a great joy arising in you for no reason at all. You suddenly feel vibrant, utterly rejuvenated, at home. Maybe the night’s deep sleep and rest, maybe the beautiful morning, the song of the birds, the fresh air, the dewdrops on the grass leaves shining in the early sun – all this created the context. Not by your effort, but just by accident you fell in harmony with yourself and with existence.And remember, it happens always together: whenever you fall in harmony with yourself, you fall in harmony with existence too.Harmony has two sides: the individual and the universal. If the individual is in harmony, then there is no reason why he should not be in harmony with the whole. If inside you all conflict has disappeared, even for a single moment, in that moment you are part of the whole, you are no longer an island, you are no longer separate. All walls have suddenly disappeared; you are no longer imprisoned.If you look back you can remember a few moments...and those will be the moments when you were relaxed, those will be the moments when there was no particular desire in your mind, when you were not worried, when you were not tense, when somehow you simply were.Watch these sudden accidental moments minutely, because there is the secret key. If it happens in a relaxed state, when you are very loose, non-tense, then you can create the context! You can relax. If it happens to you while swimming, then you can swim and create the context. If it happens to you while running...and it happens to different people in different ways. Many runners know it, that beyond a certain limit if you go on running, go on running, go on running, suddenly it happens then you can run and create the context.You cannot make it happen, but you can make yourself available for it to happen.You cannot force it to happen, but you can create all that is necessary for it to happen. It is not a doing on your part: it is a happening. But, still, you can play a great role. That’s how all techniques of meditation have been developed. That’s how Yoga came into existence.That accord is present in you, because without it you cannot be alive.That music is already there, flowing underground in you, because that music is your connection with the whole.Once it is cut you will be dead. You are alive – that is enough proof that the music is happening. The only thing is to go deep inside your own being and to find where it is happening.Krishna says - look at me, words are just dressings. I am consistent, my being is consistent. It cannot be otherwise – how can your being be inconsistent? There is no gap in the being, it is a continuum. But the mind starts thinking, comparing, and then problems arise.Once it happened…A disciple came to a Zen master and asked, “Why are a few people so intelligent and a few so stupid? Why are a few people so beautiful and a few so ugly? Why this inconsistency? If God is everywhere, and if he is the creator, then why does he create one ugly and another beautiful?” And the disciple said, “Don’t talk to me about karma. I have heard all those nonsensical answers – that because of karma, past lives, one is beautiful, another is ugly. I am not concerned with past lives. In the beginning, when there was no yesterday, how did the difference come? Why was one created beautiful and another ugly? And if everyone was created equal, equally beautiful and intelligent, how can they act differently, how can they have different karma?”The master said, “Wait! This is such a secret thing that I will tell you when everybody has left.” There were many people. So the man sat, eager, but people went on coming and going and there was no chance. But by the evening everybody had left so the man said, “Now…”The master said, “Come out with me.” The moon was coming up and the master took him to the garden and said, “Look, that tree there is so small, this tree here is so tall. I have been living with these trees for many years and they have never raised the question of why this tree is small and that tree is big. When there was a mind in me, I used to ask many times sitting under these trees, “Why is this tree small and that tree big?” Then my mind dropped, and the question dropped. Now I know. This tree is small and that tree is big; there is no problem. So look! There is no problem.”Krishna says - The mind compares. How can you compare when the mind is not? How can you say this tree is small and that tree is big? The mind drops, comparison drops. When there is no comparison the beauty of existence erupts. It becomes a volcanic eruption, it explodes. Then you see the small is big and the big is also small; then all contradictions are lost and the inner consistency is seen.Krishna is not interested in communicating something to us, he is interested in communion. Communication means Krishna’s mind talking to our mind. Communion means Krishna is not a mind, we are not a mind; just our heart meeting Krishna’s heart – no words.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 10.6
 Dhwani Shah  
 19 May 2020  

Inner Being - In Gita Verse 10.6 The seven great sages and before them the four other great sages and the Manus [progenitors of mankind] come from Me, born from My mind, and all the living beings populating the various planets descend from them.When Krishna is saying that all these sages and from sages we are born. So let’s understand what he means by sages.Scientifically we know that from our DNA who are born from our parents. Also we know that we are inheriting certain quality and habits from our parents. So let’s understand what our sages have given to us.The sage is no-mind. The sinner is negative mind, the saint is positive mind, the sage is no-mind. The sinner lives in constant duality. He has to fight with his saint, remember it. The sinner has continuously to fight with his saint, because the saint is there. The sinner is going to kill somebody and the saint says, “Don’t do this, this is not right.” He has to fight. His fight is as arduous as the fight of the saint. The saint has to fight the sinner. If somebody insults him and a great desire to kill him arises, he has to fight with that desire. He cannot do it, he is a saint, he is a holy man, he is a religious man – this and that. Both go on fighting. They have to because they live in the duality, and the repressed part goes on taking revenge. It waits for the right moments to assert itself.In the sage there is silence, there is no duality. The sage becomes a silent shrine. There is no longer any conflict, any antagonism. There is no longer any war going on in him. There is utter peace. That’s what Sufis call islam. There is utter peace, silence. Those warring elements have disappeared into unity. The marriage has happened.Sages are one who has united with themselves.We can unite with ourselves only when we enter into ourselves.When you enter within yourself, you will feel you are entering into a space where you are going to be lost – just as a drop of water entering into the ocean is lost. You will be lost: that is the fear. That is why you become afraid of death and you start dreaming – future, projections.Entry into your being is always like death. It is a crucifixion. It is a cross. But if you are courageous enough.... And cowards can never become religious. Only very rare courageous souls who can take the risk of being lost, arrive. You have to pay for it and nothing less will do. You have to lose yourself to gain it.Once you are ready to enter into the emptiness, suddenly the fear disappears. The same energy becomes a celebration. You can dance, because that which appeared as emptiness was an interpretation of the mind. It was not empty. It was so full that the mind could not understand the fullness of it!Mind is impotent. Mind is negative. Mind is empty. It understands the language of emptiness. If something is very full then mind cannot understand it. It is just like you have lived in darkness for your whole life. Then suddenly you are brought out into the sunlight and your eyes go blind. It is so dazzling, the light is so much. You cannot open your eyes. You see darkness. Standing before the sun you are standing in darkness.You have lived up to now with the mind. Mind means future. Mind means that which is not. Mind means dream, appearance, illusion, maya. Maya means a magical world. You create your own world and you live in it. You create your hallucinations and you live in it, Your hell and your heaven – all are mental.Once you enter into your inner being the mind cannot understand. It is totally unaware of the new language, the new territory. It is absolutely unknown to it. The mind cannot cope with it. It simply goes empty; the thing is too much. The light is so bright and dazzling – the mind goes empty and blank. You become afraid and you escape. Then you create a false god, a God.A God is a false god. It may be wealth. It may be prestige and power. It may be politics. It may be ego. It may be a god in heaven. But it is all God. You created it. You don’t know what is. Not knowing what is, you create your own dream around it.Authentic religion is an inquiry into what is. Inauthentic religion is inventive. Authentic religion is a discovery. Inauthentic religion is an invention. Mind invents. And mind is the barrier. And once the mind invents, it creates great philosophies: Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism.All the great mystics – Hassids, Zen Masters, Sufis – they are rebellious. They have to be. A religious man is a rebellious man – there is no other way. Religion and rebellion are two aspects of the same coin.Krishna says the seven sages and Manus who are born from me and they have entered into their inner being. You all are born from Manu, you also have brought the seed and potentiality to enter into your inner being.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 11.12
 Dhwani Shah  
 4 July 2020  

Evoking The Inner Light - In Gita Verse 11.12 If hundreds of thousands of suns were to rise at once into the sky, their radiance might resemble the effulgence of the Supreme Person in that universal form.To Arjuna Krishna has revealed his inner light. Which is equivalent to thousands of Suns.Many of our sages have seen their inner light which is equivalent to thousands of Suns.I will be sharing one of the techniques given in Vigyan Bhairav Tantra - Evoking the Inner Light:By encountering our darkness, paradoxically we come to find the inner light.Imagine you are in darkness…When the eyes are closed and your face is relaxed, look as if everything has become dark. A deep darkness is around you. Imagine you are amidst darkness, in a deep, velvety darkness, surrounded by it, in a deep, dark night. Go on feeling this darkness. That will help your eyes to stop their movements. With nothing to be seen, the eyes will stop. Be in darkness.You can do it in a dark room. Open your eyes, look at the darkness, then close them and feel the darkness. Again open your eyes, feel the darkness; close your eyes, feel it inside. Darkness is deeply relaxing. Darkness is outside and inside you; everything is dead – dark and dead. Both are related. That is why we paint death as black, dark. All over the world death is painted as black, and people fear darkness.Love the darkness and feel you are going to die:While doing this method, feel darkness, love darkness, and feel inside that you are going to die. Darkness is all around, and you are dying. The eyes will stop. You will feel that they cannot move: they will have stopped. In that stopping, suddenly the energy will go up and start hammering the third eye. When it starts hammering, you will hear it, you will feel it. A warmth will come, a fire will flow – a liquid fire trying to find a new path.Allow the fire; become the fireDo not be afraid. Help it, cooperate with it, let it move, become it. And when the third eye opens for the first time, the darkness will disappear and there will be light – light without a source. You have seen light, but always with a source. Either it comes from the sun or from the stars or from the moon or from the lamp, but some source is there.When your energy moves through the third eye, you will come to know a light without source. It is not coming from any source; it is simply there, not coming from anywhere. That is why the Upanishads say that God is not like the sun or like a flame. He is source-less light. There is no source anywhere, simply light is there, just as if it is morning.The sun has not arisen, but the night has disappeared. In between there is the dawn – the pre-dawn. Or in the evening, the sun has set and the night has not yet come. Just in between there is the margin. The same will happen inside, light will be there without a source. Wait for it; do not imagine it.The night is just ending, the dawn is entering. The night is taking itself away. We cannot do anything to disperse it; it comes and goes on its own. But we can do one thing: even when the morning is there, already there, and the sun has risen, we may not open our eyes; then inside us the night still continues. And just the reverse is also true: if you open your eyes, really open your eyes in the deepest dark, the darkness disappears. So all depends on whether you open your eyes or not. To remain with closed eyes is to remain in the night, to open your eyes and start seeing is the beginning of the day, the beginning of light, and the beginning of the divine. The word ‘day’ comes from divine.So the night depends on each person’s resistance to light, their fear of light. One feels cosy with closed eyes. To open your eyes needs courage because you may have to see things that you never wanted to see in yourself, outside yourself. Your dreams may be shattered; they are bound to be shattered because they can exist only with closed eyes, they can exist only in sleep. They may be beautiful, sweet dreams, and one wants to cling to those dreams. People have become so addicted to dreams that they don’t open their eyes, they don’t see the light of the day.Go inside of you and you will find - hundreds of thousands of suns were to rise at once into the sky, their radiance might resemble the effulgence of the Supreme Person in that universal form.

The illusion of being immortal

The Illusion of being ImmortalMany people wish to be gifted with immortality and imagine how our life would be living that way, a way to live forever beyond time, beyond our chances to experience again and again, to be with our senses and memory that we value most.but we forget we are meant to be dead.Yes,death is not a curse but is a gift, it is the reason for which we search for enjoyment and peace as we know we have very limited time on earth.It is the truth that breaks the illusion of eternal being, which would be very boring and monotonous.the First thing is what is the reason to be born? I think to feel the living soul, to find the purpose of life and Death provides the certainty of it.We live in our own illusion, the mind is a universe and we make a world in it, give it life but never thought of death, and there comes the eternal presence of Death, that makes a life complete as a renowned poet Allen Ginsberg says "Find share and Lose Lest we die unbloomed".In Life there should be something for which you can never be satisfied and may be thats the reason we are made that way,we never become satisfied whatever we get,We always strive for more and more.May be today Lifespan seems too less, as there are many things to do. I appreciate people's view, the world has become too hard to live, people are tired of  fighting, and at some point when people lose ability to fight as the same they loose the ability to enjoy physically the way they did in their youth,even you stay youthful forever your mind will be old because it has seen so much of this world,corruption ,injustice,violence and all negative things. But we can't fix the world now, it is in its own way to be destroyed. But whatever the reason is, immortality is much to ask from Life.it will lead you nowhere, you will feel you are stuck in a time loop, neither you die nor live.Because living is not about how long you live, it's about how much you live in the subjective reality, the time you live with mindfulness, perceiving the beauty of your surroundings, every sound you here, every small things you see, everything you feel, because it's our vision what gives us the highest sense of perception either through ingenuity or with curious childlike ignorant mind .may be the death is the end of our physical body but the idea of Death gives us life.there are many Great things done in the name of love, for which we feel more alive Even the perception of death doesn't matter. So death is a perspective concept So as the immortality. And Even sometime Death becomes the only solution of Unknown Mysteries because the true nature of Life is Mystery and that is the reason you can't predict it.Death is also part of fantasy cause it's not possible to feel death when you are full of life.Its more connected to pleasure as people feel seeing  cruelty,torture,death.Everything should have a limit.see future is uncertain so it is possible to feel immortality at a point of certain time,then feel what will be the future life?I feel that when I will get utmost peace and love from life I will ask for death because I will always fear the uncertain future and to make the present Happyness for eternity I need to die with it,Death gives us a fixed identify after life otherwise life would be ever changing and at some point we will fear Change.

The Perks of Being a Veteran

Being a veteran of a United States military branch can come with many different benefits. This can make it easier to seek an education, find employment, and even get a house. It all depends on how long you have spent in the military, having an honorable discharge, and what your goals are. If you are a veteran or you don't want to make a career out of being in the military but wonder what the benefits are, take a closer look at your options and learn more. This can help you make the right decision for your life and needs.Seeking an EducationSeeking education is one of the main reasons why many people join the military. There are many different types of programs and G.I. bills that are available to those who are in the military or who are veterans. Some of theprograms available depend on what branch of the military you are serving in, how long you have served, and sometimes even the type of degree you are pursuing, so it is worth it to take a look and see what you want to go after. If you want to get as much of your college education paid for as possible by the military, it is important to do your research, since you might have more than one benefit that you can put to good use. Make sure you know what you have available before pursuing your degree. If in doubt, it can be helpful to talk to a college admissions specialist, since they will likely know what types of benefits can be used for the school. Finding Employment Outside of the MilitaryServing in the military can be a good way to showcase to employers that you are skilled, trained, and dedicated. It can also help depending on what type of job you are trying to secure. For example, if you flew planes at any point, this can make it easier for you to secure work as a pilot for a commercial airline. Even if you had a job such as Sergeant or a similar title, this shows you are skilled at managing others and have leadership qualities. This type of background also translates well to civilian employment within the government or even banking, such as working in finance. If you are looking for a way to stand out at your next job interview, having military experience is something that most employers won't forget anytime soon.Getting a Home LoanMany people find it difficult to obtain a home loan these days. Thankfully, this is one area where being a veteran can come in handy. There are many different types of aid as far as getting a VA home loan goes. If you had dreams of moving into a home of your very own but weren't sure how you could finance it, it is important to see how a VA home loan can make a difference. The amount of money you will get depends on the location of the property you are interested in buying, but this can be a very effective way of finding the home of your dreams, particularly if you don't have a lot of money saved up or aren't sure of what exactly you need, but know that you want to be a homeowner.There are many benefits to having served in the military. You can take advantage of a college education that the military helps to pay for though G.I. Bills and other benefits that are available to help veterans with personal finance. You may also find it easier to seek employment outside of the military since you'll have learned a variety of different skills that you can show future employers through your background. Finally, those in the military may find it easier to own a house thanks to home loan programs that the VA offers. No matter what your needs, you can find out more about how to put your military benefits to work for you.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 11.32
 Dhwani Shah  
 23 July 2020  

The River Of Love - In Gita Verse 11.32 The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: Time I am, the great destroyer of the worlds, and I have come here to destroy all people. With the exception of you [the Pāṇḍavas], all the soldiers here on both sides will be slain.When Krishna says that - I have come here to destroy all people - he means that now everyone will have to take rebirth. The old will disappear and give a path to the fresh energy. Science also says that nothing can be destroyed, nothing can be created only everything is changing form.What Krishna says that now the time has come for change.In my Bhagavad Gita Verse 2.22, blog I wrote Misery arises because we don’t allow change to happen. We cling, we want things to be static.Existence is a continuum. Like seed. it disappears as seed to appear as a tree, become again seed and drop the tree.DROP THE PAST EACH MOMENT:Death is already happening. Whether you face it or not, whether you look at it or not, it is already there. It is just like breathing. When a child is born, he inhales. He breathes in for the first time. That is the beginning of life. And when one day he becomes old, dies, he will exhale.Death always happens with exhalation and birth with inhalation. But exhalation and inhalation are happening continuously. With each inhalation you are born; with each exhalation you die.So the first thing to understand is that death is not somewhere in the future, waiting for you, as it has always been pictured. It is part of life; it is an ongoing process-not in the future, here, now.Life and death are two aspects of existence. simultaneously happening together.Ordinarily, you have been taught to think of death as being against life. Death is not against life - life is not possible without death. Death is the very ground on which life exists. Death and life are like two wings: the bird cannot fly with one wing, and the being cannot be without death. So the first thing is a clear understanding of what we mean by death.Death is an absolutely necessary process for life to be. It is not the enemy, it is the friend. And it is not there somewhere in the future, it is here, now. It is not going to happen, it has been always happening. Since you have been here it has been with you. With each exhalation it happens - a little death, a small death - but because of fear we have put it in the future.The mind always tries to avoid things which it cannot comprehend, and death is one of the most incomprehensible mysteries. There are only three mysteries: life, death and love. All these three are beyond mind.So mind takes life for granted; then there is no need to inquire. That is a way of avoiding. You never think, you never meditate on life; you have simply accepted it, taken it for granted. It is a tremendous mystery. You are alive, but don't think that you have known life.For death, the mind plays another trick: it postpones it. To accept it here and now would be a constant worry, so the mind puts it somewhere in the future - then there is no hurry. When it comes, we will see.And for love, the mind has created substitutes which are not love. Sometimes you call your possessiveness your love; sometimes you call your attachment your love; sometimes you call your domination your love - these are ego games. Love has nothing to do with them. In fact, because of these games, love is not possible.Between life and death, between the two banks of life and death, flows the river of love. And that is possible only for a person who does not take life for granted, who moves deep into the quality of being alive and becomes existential, authentic. Love is for the person who accepts death here and now and does not postpone it. Then between these two a beautiful phenomenon arises: the river of love.Life and death are like two banks. The possibility is there for the river of love to flow, but it is only a possibility. You will have to materialize it. Life and death are there, but love has to be materialized - that is the goal of being a human. Unless love materializes, you have missed - you have missed the whole point of being.When Krishna says that - I have come here to destroy all people - he speaks out of his compassion to give new form to everyone.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 2.41
 Dhwani Shah  
 7 August 2019  

Our Role - In Gita Verse 2.41 Those who are on this path are resolute in purpose, and their aim is one. O beloved child of the Kurus, the intelligence of those who are irresolute is many-branched.Krishna is saying those human being who had understanding of the purpose of human birth - GROW IN CONSCIOUSNESS - this is the assignment of universe to human beings. Once you become self-alert you realize your assignment of the universe, you will start living in this objective world but acting from your subjective world.The person who has realised this will be always enthusiastic to act or not, to act for that person of realization life is a play he is only playing his role. His focus will be how to play in totality. He will be total in his act. Like an actor when he is acting in movie and he has to murder someone or he has to fight war with someone he knows that he is playing his role and unless he is total role will not be successful. So what he does is without any kind of emotions he plays his role, as he knows that by murdering or killing someone in the war is not going to make any difference in his personality nor will it dent it. But if he plays his role fully that will give him fame and further opportunities.Same is in our real life - we are just playing our role given by Universe. For that we need the objective also. From the objective world we get certain circumstances in that circumstances we need to play our role. While playing the role we need our intelligence - for strategy, how and when to use the resources, how to increase our resources through our actions, - with the intelligence we need qualities like wait, watchfulness, balance, acceptance, looking into the present moment’s requirement we need to change our decision etc.Now if we play our role in objective world which is nothing but the screen of cinema, as soon as we have finished our role of that moment we need to allow other things to come on the screen. If in all this synchronicity will happen then you will find that in the middle of the world you are unaffected by the objective world. He will become participant in this world. For him nothing like sin or virtues . Everything is divine for him.Synchronistic events provide an immediate religious experience as a direct encounter with the compensatory patterning of events in nature as a whole, both inwardly and outwardly.The law of synchronicity has to be understood. This is one of the greatest contributions of Carl Gustav Jung to modern humanity: the law of synchronicity.Science is based on the law of causality. The law of causality is mechanical. You heat water to a hundred degrees – it evaporates. Where you heat it is irrelevant – in the temple, in the church, in the mosque, it doesn’t matter; in India, in Tibet, it doesn’t matter. If you heat water to a hundred degrees, it evaporates; the water has no say in it. The water cannot say, “Today I am not feeling like it.” Or, “Today is Sunday and I am on a holiday, and I am not interested in becoming vapour.” Or, “Today I am not in the mood, and you can go on heating and heating and I will not evaporate.” Or, “Today I am suddenly feeling very generous towards you so I will evaporate at fifty degrees. I will favour you.” No, the water has no choice. The law is mechanical, it is causal. If you create the cause, the effect has to follow. And it is without any exception.The credit goes to Carl Gustav Jung. The law has been known down the ages, but nobody had named it exactly. He called it ‘the law of synchronicity’. It suddenly happened to a scientist: A scientist a hundred years ago was staying in an old house. In that old house there were two old clocks on the same wall. He was surprised to see that they always kept exactly the same time, second to second: “Old clocks, and so perfect? Not even a single second’s difference?”Being a scientist he became curious. He put one clock five minutes back, and after twenty-four hours in the morning when he looked again, they were again keeping the same time. Now it was a great puzzle. He enquired… nobody had changed, nobody had touched anything. He tried again and again, and again and again they would come to the same rhythm. Then he tried to find out: “What is happening? – something strange. They are disconnected!”Then he observed more minutely and he came to conclude: “The vibration of one clock, which is more powerful, the bigger clock, goes through the wall – just the vibration – and keeps the other clock in tune. It is a subtle rhythm. Nothing is visible.”That was the beginning of a new phenomenon… then many many more things happened. And by the time Carl Gustav Jung started working on how things happen in consciousness, he came to conclude that the vibe of one heart, if it is powerful enough, can change the rhythm of another heart — just like the bigger clock was changing the smaller clock.The vibe is invisible. There is not yet any way to measure it, but it is there. It is not tangible, but it functions. It is not causal.The way in which one heart can change the rhythm of another heart same way when you live in the objective world and act from your subjectivity there aries a rhythm, synchronicity of objective world and subjective world, the whole environment will change around you. It has been said that in the 3 kilometers of radius of Buddha and Mahavira everything will become non-violence. Even the wild animal will become friendly.Now our objective world is visible but subjective world is invisible. If we act in objective world from our subjectivity, our actions will be aligned with universeal direction, from that act you will not be in the vicious circle of sin or virtues but simply play your role and in that always you will find there will be more opportunities and growth is possible.Krishna says Arjuna who realize themselves as a human being they just play their role. So come back to your subjectivity and just play your role.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 1.19
 Dhwani Shah  
 5 June 2019  

Rhythm Is Silence - In Gita Verse 1.19 The blowing of these different conch shells became uproarious. Vibrating both in the sky and on the earth, it shattered the hearts of the sons of Dhṛtarāṣṭra.Rhythmic Response of Pandava reached in whole existence. While Kauravas response was tumultuous in whole existence.In Bhagavad Gita Verse 1.13 it says that when Kaurava responded - After that, the conch shells, drums, bugles, trumpets and horns were all suddenly sounded, and the combined sound was tumultuous.Rhythm means - When you feel one with the trees and the birds. and the rivers and the rocks, and the ocean and the sand – watch. You will find that there are many rhythms of your breath, a great spectrum: from the most violent, ugly, miserable hell-type, to the most silent heaven-type.Then when you have discovered your rhythm, practice it; make it a part of your life. By and by it becomes unconscious; then you only breathe in that rhythm. With that rhythm your life will be a life of a yogi: you will not be angry, you will not feel so sexual, you will not feel so filled with hatred. Suddenly you will feel a transmutation happening to you.Rhythm is a message of silence in us. Tumultuous is a message of excitement and anxiety. As a team when Pandavas silence reached to sky and on the earth it shows their gratitude towards existence. In gratitude they said that we will focus on what we have to deliver is without enmity towards Kaurava and fight with them. We accept your assignment in gratitude.Whenever we hear music immediately we become silent. In the middle of all the objective world’s activity suddenly we feel silence, we feel life. This is very alive not dead but flow.Rhythmic message by Pandava and their team conveyed to Universe that we are ready without any resistance to deliver your assignment.For them it is not right or wrong, win or lose but only one thing how we can deliver our assignment which has been given by Universe.There is no possibility of any division between right and wrong on the highest level of universal consciousnesses, for the simple reason that there are no divisions at all. It is one.What is right and what is wrong?Awareness is right; unawareness is wrong. Don’t label actions as wrong and right. Don’t say violence is wrong. Sometimes violence can be right. Don’t say love is right. Sometimes love can be wrong. Love can be for a wrong person, love can be for a wrong purpose. Somebody loves his country. Now, this is wrong because nationalism is a curse. Somebody loves his religion. He can kill, he can murder, he can burn others’ temples. Neither is love always right nor is anger always wrong.Then what is right and what is wrong? Awareness is right. If you are angry with full awareness, even anger is right. And if you are loving with unawareness, even love is not right.So let the quality of awareness be there in every act that you do, in every thought that you think, in every dream that you dream. Let the quality of awareness enter into your being more and more. Become suffused with the quality of awareness. Then whatsoever you do is virtue. Then whatsoever you do is good. Then whatsoever you do is a blessing to you and to the world in which you live.Sound of conch shells which was so Rhythmic that the silence which was uproarious through it, shattered the hearts of the sons of Dhṛtarāṣṭra.It’s natural. When you are excited for anything other person will not be shattered. Because they know it within no time they can uproot you, divert you. But when you are silent the other person will be shattered because it says that I am rooted in myself. The person who is rooted in themselves it is very difficult to uproot them and defeat them. For Kaurava this war was to win but this Uproar of silence so profound that they could hear that we will not be able to defeat Pandava.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 11.14
 Dhwani Shah  
 6 July 2020  

Being Is Unaddressed - In Gita Verse 11.14 Then, bewildered and astonished, his hair standing on end, Arjuna bowed his head to offer obeisances and with folded hands began to pray to the Supreme Lord.When we receive even small gift we always show our gratitude towards the person who gave us a gift. Arjuna had received something which cannot be said in the words he expressed his gratitude by praying Krishna.Once you understand the feeling of gratitude and allow it to sink deeply within you, you will start feeling grateful for everything. And the more grateful you are, the less complaining, grumbling.Once complaining disappears, misery disappears.So grow more and more in gratitude and thankfulness — not only towards any particular person or God; let it become your very style. Be grateful to everybody.If one understands gratitude then one is grateful for things that have been done positively. And one even feels grateful for things which could have been done negatively. You feel grateful that somebody helped you; this is just the beginning. Then you start feeling grateful that somebody has not harmed you — he could have; it was so kind of him.Once you understand the feeling of gratitude and allow it to sink deeply within you, you will start feeling grateful for everything. And the more grateful you are, the less complaining, grumbling.Once complaining disappears, misery disappears. It exists with complaints. It is hooked with complaints and with the complaining mind. Misery is impossible with gratefulness.So that is one of the most important secrets to learn.Meditation is a flowering. And for us, the perfume of the flower is gratitude.Meditation, compassion and gratitude. Whenever you are meditative, you feel blissful; whenever you are in compassion, you feel ecstatic. And then gratitude arises – not towards anyone in particular, gratitude just arises. It is not towards Krishna or towards Jesus, or Zarathustra or Buddha, it is simply gratitude. You feel so grateful just for being here, just for being alive, just for being able to be meditative, just for being able to be in compassion. You feel simply grateful. That gratefulness is not towards anybody, it is towards the whole.If you feel grateful towards Krishna it is a gratitude of the mind. If you meditate and if you flower in compassion you will feel simply grateful, not grateful towards Krishna. Then there is no “towards” – you feel simply grateful towards all. And when you feel grateful towards all – that is really gratefulness towards Krishna, never before it. When it is a choice you choose Krishna; then Krishna becomes a point, not the whole.That’s what is happening everywhere. Disciples get fixed with the master and masters help them to be fixed. That’s not good, it is ugly. When you really flower then your perfume is not addressed to anybody; when you really flower the perfume goes in all directions. It simply moves in all directions, and whosoever passes near you is filled with your fragrance, he carries your fragrance. And if nobody passes you then on that silent, lonely path your fragrance goes on spreading – but it is not addressed.Remember, the mind is always addressed; being is never addressed. The mind is always moving towards something; being is simply moving towards all. It is a movement without any goal. A goal exists because of motive: you move towards something because there is desire. When there is no desire how can you move? Movement is there but no motivation. Then you move in all directions, then you overflow. Then your master is everywhere; then Krishna is everywhere. And only when this point comes are you free from the master also. Then you are freed of all relationships, you are freed of all presence, of all bondage. And if a master cannot free you from himself he is not a master at all.So you need not do anything for your master; you do something for you. Meditation, compassion. Then the presence will come, and not thought by the mind. Right now you think and you feel: What shall we do? Then it is the mind. How to pay the master? He has done so much for you, what should you do? This is the mind thinking in terms of giving and taking. No, this mind won’t help. One thing you can do for master: drop this mind, allow your being to flower; then you will be fragrant. Then in all dimensions and directions the whole will be happy. You will be a bliss and your gratitude will not be narrow. It will not be towards a point, it will be moving all over, everywhere. Only then do you achieve prayer. This gratitude is prayer.When you go in a temple and do a prayer, it is not prayer; but when, after compassion, gratitude arises, the whole existence becomes the temple. Whatsoever you touch, it becomes a prayer; whatsoever you do, it becomes prayerful. You cannot be otherwise. Deeply rooted, anchored in meditation, deeply flowing into compassion, you cannot be otherwise. You become prayer, you become gratitude.But remember, the mind is always addressed. It has a goal, a desire to achieve. Being is unaddressed; it has no goal, it has nothing to achieve. The kingdom of being is already achieved, the emperor is already there on the throne. You move because movement is life, but don’t move towards any goal, because when there is no goal, there is no tension. Then movement is beautiful, graceful.

Use Breathe Green Charcoal Bags And Recover From Stuttering

Comfortable breathing is very important in the treatment of stuttering. Without the ability to breathe, no organism will live on Earth. The ease of inhaling after an outbreak can be considered a rhythm of life. In its simplest form, when one is in a more relaxed position, such as sleeping or caressing at home in a comfortable chair, breathing is uniform and modest for the needs of the body. Breathe Green Charcoal Bags rhythm is automatic, thanks to the sky we don't have to think about it. When we are not relaxed, our heart rate increases. This is usually because:Physical ActivityEmotional ActivityDuring physical activity, the respiratory rate is increased to provide the body with sufficient oxygen. The muscles need oxygen to function. The more physical activity, the faster the respiratory rate. This is due to the increase in this activity. Emotional action is complex and any attempt to discuss this human quality at any level will not work for the purpose of the subject. Suffice it to say that emotional activity is closely related to metabolic activity inside the body and that any increase in metabolic activity in the body increases oxygen consumption and thus increases respiratory rate.What Does This Have To Do With Stuttering Recovery?If you look at 99% of other people who do not love, it is not a problem for them. The voice is as simple as the breathing process.If we study the process of non-stuttering speech and listen carefully to their speaking style, we will note that there is a clear rhythm of breathing and speech. A phrase has a pause when Good Breath at certain points is transient for phrases in the name of the action he is speaking. These patterns are obviously different between people, but they are a common thread. He has a fleeting comfort style for phrases that have thrown out his words since he started speaking, and they have fluent language every time he opens his mouth to speak. . They do simple things without even thinking. We all have thousands of unique paths in our minds. These pathways, known as neural pathways, are actually just groups of neurons that come together in a specific order in our brains. We develop robust neural pathways from repetitive tasks that can be as simple as nourishing yourself and complicating your teeth, such as brain surgeries or golf ball blows. In fact, the human brain develops and maintains a path for every routine we choose. Every person who speaks has a neurological path to this.In connection with a person with paralysis, his nervous expression tends to confuse emotional debris, his / her negative perception of others. Out of this Breathe Green Charcoal Bags, many people who stutter develop bad self-esteem. This negative cause is like a nest of bird thoughts that have accumulated over the years of shocks. When we struggle (stutter) to use our neural pathway of expression, it is like trying to negotiate a minefield, wearing the optic nerve, moving around a lot and moving a lot. The term expulsion struggles often differ from one another to the extent that the respiratory system is tense and uneven, and is unlikely to allow the flow to speak.As mentioned, there is a predetermined type of rhythm and comfortable speech. If you listen to anxious speech carefully, in most cases the rhythm is absent and it is definitely uncomfortable. The relation between the phrase "stagnation" and speech and breathing is irregular and generally not appropriate for what is said.When trying to establish a strong and comfortable stagnation relationship, it is important to seek long-term speech therapy programs that return to the basics of speech in an effort to establish a strong and comfortable stagnation relationship. Often, the use of slow abdominal breathing combined with a long or soft speech technique gives great control over gingival restoration. With technology that controls the rhythm and pause of speech, you will have every opportunity to control your stutter as far as it can be a mistake in life.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 3.41
 Dhwani Shah  
 19 October 2019  

Inner Senses - In Gita Verse 3.41 Therefore, O Arjuna, best of the Bhāratas, in the very beginning curb this great symbol of sin [lust] by regulating the senses, and slay this destroyer of knowledge and self-realization.Krishna tells Arjuna that unless you start using your inner senses you cannot conquered the desire the lust. Once you know how to use the inner senses you become self-realizes. Also remember that with the use of your inner senses if you can conquer the desire then you will be able to Fight Without Enmity.Having obtained the use of the inner senses, having conquered the desires of the outer senses, having conquered the desires of the individual soul, and having obtained knowledge, prepare now, to enter upon the way in reality. The path is found; make yourself ready to tread it.Having obtained the use of the inner senses… We know about our outer senses, but each sense has a double dimension. For example, eyes: they can look out. This is only one dimension of their functioning. They can also look inward, that is their other function. Or, ears: you can hear what is happening outside. That is one function, one dimension. You can also hear what is happening within. That is another function, another dimension.Every sense has two doors. One opens into the outer world, the other opens into the inner world. Each sense is both outer and inner, but we only use our senses in one way. We have become fixated, we have forgotten that those same senses can be used to reach within.Having obtained the use of the inner senses… Having obtained the hidden dimension of the senses, many things can become possible because a new world opens before you. The inner is as vast as the outer, the inner is as great as the outer. You are standing just in between, you are standing just in between the inner and the outer – two universes.The outer is vast. They say it is infinite, endless, beginningless: there is no boundary to it. The same is also true for the inner: no boundary – the inner space is, again, infinite. The outer is being searched by scientific methods and the inner can be searched through yogic methods.Science has developed much, and has come to know much about the outer world. But the inner has become forgotten; it is no longer remembered. We are rich now as far as the outer world is concerned, outer experiences are concerned, and we have become absolutely poor, beggars, as far as the inner is concerned. But what is the use of gaining the whole world if, in gaining it, you lose yourself?If the self is lost, what is gained? Even if you gain the whole world, nothing is gained. If you lose yourself then the very meaning of life, the very significance – the beauty, the truth, the good, everything – is lost. Man can accumulate things, can accumulate powers, at the cost of losing himself. Then the whole point is missed.Science tries to magnify the outer senses. Now, through mechanical devices we can look far away into space, the eyes are magnified by scientific method. Now we can hear over long distances, scientific technology magnifies your ears.The same is also possible for the inner senses. Through meditation, through Yoga, through Tantra – the inner technologies – your inner senses are magnified. And once they are magnified, many things are revealed to you.Krishna tells Arjuna to use all his inner senses, instead of outer. Till the time he use his only outer senses he will have desire, lust, but once he will use his inner senses, he will be able to regulate his senses, and become self-realize. Krishna did not wanted to advice Arjuna or guide Arjuna he just want him to be self-realize. As during the war only thing which can help him to Fight Without Enmity is his own self-realization. No advice or guidance will be of any help to him.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 6.36
 Dhwani Shah  
 1 February 2020  

Inner Game - In Gita Verse 6.36 For one whose mind is unbridled, self-realization is difficult work. But he whose mind is controlled and who strives by appropriate means is assured of success. That is My opinion.Krishna in all his compassion realize not only Arjuna’s difficulty but ours also. He says that to take first step for self-realization is very difficult work, but at the same time he says that according to his opinion through any practice can have freedom from mind - means who is required as a servant, for utility purpose.In my Bhagavad Gita Verse 6.6, blog I wrote - Mind is a beautiful mechanism, the most beautiful mechanism in existence, but you have become a servant to the mind. Don’t fight with the mind but understand the mind.The mind is a mechanism, it has no intelligence. The mind is a bio-computer. How can it have any intelligence? It has skill but it has no intelligence, it has a functional utility but it has no awareness. It is a robot. It works well, but don’t listen to it too much because then you will lose your inner intelligence. Then it is as if you are asking a machine to guide you, lead you. You are asking a machine which has nothing original in it – cannot have. Not a single thought in the mind is ever original, it is always a repetition. Watch: whenever mind says something, see that it is again putting you into a routine. Try to do something new and the mind will have less of a grip on you.People who are in some way creative are always easily transformed into meditators, and people who are uncreative in their life are the most difficult. If you live a repetitive life the mind has too much control over you: you cannot move away from it, you are afraid. Do something new every day. Don’t listen to the old routine. In fact, if the mind says something, tell it, “We have always been doing this. Now let me do something else.”Even small changes: in the way you have always been behaving with your wife, just small changes; in the way you always walk, just small changes; the way you always talk, small changes, and you will find that the mind is losing its grip on you. You are becoming a little freer.Creative persons get more easily into meditation and go deeper. Poets, painters, musicians, dancers, can get into meditation more easily than businessmen. They live a routine life, absolutely uncreative.What is creativity?Creativity means letting go of the past. Too much reliance on our past stops you from being creative. Creative person is the one who lives in the moment, understands the context and looks at possibilities. Creativity means to bring intelligence into activity, you don’t need more information, you need more meditation. You need to become less mind and more heart.Creativity is an inner game. It stems from your love for the subject. It stems from your passion to practice, courage to try and learn by doing. If your act is your love affair then it becomes creative. Creativity is the quality you bring to the activity you are doing. It is an attitude, an inner approach – how you look at things. Whatsoever you do, if you do it joyfully, if you do it lovingly, then it is creative.Creativity demands a lot of courage. Because doing something unconventionally requires you take risks, be prepared for failure, and learn from it.Once you know how to play the Inner Game, you will know how utilize the mind.Krishna is saying through any practice understand the mind. Don’t fight with mind.A mind full of desires can only understand desire. Hence the desire for God. It is absurd, you cannot desire God. God comes to you when desire leaves. The cessation of desire is the coming of God to you. Again, I am using the word ’coming’, which is not true. Because God is already there – you only recognize when the desire has ceased. Nothing ever comes, nothing ever goes, all is as it is. That’s what Buddha means when he says: yatha bhutam – things are as they are. Nothing has gone wrong, nothing needs to be put right. Things are as they are, and they always remain as they are. The trees are green and the roses are red and the clouds float in the sky. Everything is where it has always been, the way it has always been. That is the meaning of the word ‘nature’ – yatha bhutam.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 7.25
 Dhwani Shah  
 8 March 2020  

Inner Formlessness - In Gita Verse 7.25 I am never manifest to the foolish and unintelligent. For them I am covered by My internal potency, and therefore they do not know that I am unborn and infallible.It is not that Krishna cannot manifest to ignorant but unless person is mature and grown in their consciousness they will not be able to absorb him. Or in other words drop cannot absorb the ocean. He needs to disappear in the ocean. There is no other way. Same with us unless we merge in ourselves, our Godliness, God cannot manifest.To merge in ourselves means die as we are. Ignorant is so much attached and thinks that the world is only as objective world. They are not ready to feel their own vastness. Forget about the universe or Krishna but they are not ready to know themselves. They are stuck to their identity.Ignorant people are always very egoistic because they don’t know how to drop their egos. The creative person knows glimpses of no-ego, of egolessness. He knows states of no-ego. In moments of creativity, he becomes so possessed that he has a taste of something of the beyond. But an ignorant person knows no non-ego states; he becomes a crystallized ego.Remember it: you can see …only if you can be the formless in you. If you want to see the formless you will have to become formless within. Because only when the wave lengths are the same, is there communion. When you are also formless within you, suddenly something clicks and you are one with God. He is formless, you are formless; there cannot be two formlessnesses. There can be millions of forms, but formlessness can only be one.How to attain to this inner formlessness? – drop the ego. That is giving you a limitation. Drop the very word I. Use it, it is utilitarian in the outside world, but never bring it home. Never say “I” inside because that makes a limitation, and because of that barrier you will never be able to move into the beloved, and you will never be able to allow the beloved to move into you. If you want to see God, become something like God. Be creative – one thing; be formless – another thing.Bauls say that there are no fixed laws and rules to reach him. There is no methodology. There are no superhighways to reach to him, only small footpaths. And each has to seek him in his own way. Of course, a poet has to seek in his own way, a dancer has to seek in his own way, a lover has to seek in his own way, a meditator has to seek in his own way.So you should never listen to what others are saying; listen to your feelings. Remain true to yourself and you will remain true to God. He has already given you the key – the key is in your feelings. Never imitate, because there is no one way for all. If you understand rightly, then the really religious world will be a world of no religions – no Hindu, no Mohammedan, no Christian, no Jaina. A real world which is religious will be of religious people: everybody seeking and searching in his own way. And God is not limited.Jesus says, “In my Father’s house there are many mansions.” Yes, there are millions of doors. In fact, for each individual there is a separate door – special; nobody else can enter through that door but you. So don’t imitate: imitation creates falsity, pseudoness, inauthenticity. Just feel your own way and don’t bother about what others say.It is nobody else’s business. Don’t bother about what churches say, organizations say – listen to your own heart.Bauls are very individualistic. Religion has to be individualistic because it is a process of individuation. But what other religions have done up to now is to destroy individuality and try to make everybody a part of the crowd. They have created mobs, and they have destroyed individuals. Bauls are rebellious about it.Each one has to come to his own vision, each one has to look through his own eyes. You cannot see through my eyes, and you cannot touch him through my hands. Even if I hold your hand and put it on him, it will never reach to him – because you are not ready. If you are ready, he is always reaching you. And what is readiness in the eyes of the Bauls? – become individual.Krishna says that to attain your formlessness - Don't try to understand life. Live it! Don't try to understand love. Move into love. Then you will know - and all that knowing will come out of your experiencing. The more you know, the more you know that much remains to be known.Once you live your life, once you have your experience of your own formlessness then you will know that I am unborn and infallible.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 10.24
 Dhwani Shah  
 5 June 2020  

Inner Power - In Gita Verse 10.24 Of priests, O Arjuna, know Me to be the chief, Bṛhaspati. Of generals I am Kārttikeya, and of bodies of water I am the ocean.Krishna says that in all the act whether it is religious rituals performed by Bṛhaspati, or fought war where Kārttikeya, son of Shiva is general or bodies of water ocean, he is present in all as formless, the inner force.Human beings have an inbuilt drive or urge to search for the inner power that is needed to reach our true potential. This search is the search for the origins and meaning of life itself.We are here, we have life – but we don’t know what life really is. We can feel our energy, but don’t know where this energy comes from and to what goal this energy is going. We are that energy, we have glimpses of its true source and our connection to it, and those glimpses keep us going even when it seems we will never find what we are seeking – but still we do not know what that energy is.To know the life and it’s inner force we need to understand deathless - The deathless: the deepest longing in life is to experience the deathless, the immortal, that which can never be destroyed. What can one gain by attaining something that will come to an end? What will be truly gained? What value has something that comes into your hands only to slip away? What you have gained will start to disappear in the same moment that it is gained, rendering all your efforts useless.That is why we only call someone whose search has been for that which, once found, is never lost again a brahmajnani, the knower of the ultimate reality. A brahmajnani is one who has found that from which there can never again be a separation, which has a beginning but no end. This is a little complex because you understand that everything that has a beginning has to have an end. There is nothing in this world that is seen to begin but not to end. Everything is seen to come and go. Is there any experience, any realization, that can be eternal – from which there is be no possibility of separation?This is the search for brahmajnan, the search to know the ultimate reality.The search for the ultimate reality is a search for the eternal, the beginningless, the endless – for that which has always been, for that which is never destroyed and which will never die, for that which will never come to an end. And only if you attain this will you know life. Only if you become one with this will you know the immortal, the deathless. Until you have become one with this, your life will be a trembling in fear, like a leaf in the wind because death will shake you from everywhere; you will constantly feel the winds of death. The fear will end only when you know the ultimate truth, only when you become one with it. And where fear ends and fearlessness begins, there is the sunrise of life, there is the dawn of life.But can this be attained through money? – because man puts his whole life’s effort into accumulating money. In this way he hopes to be able to know something that does not die. But when the same hands that have earned the money perish, how can the money that was earned with those hands survive? When the creator is himself so ephemeral, his creation is bound to be even more so.Wealth, money – these are just deceptions. They create an illusion of permanence. When you have money you feel as if you have something secure and permanent with which you can fight against the momentary nature of things. You think that with the support of money you may even be able to make some arrangements against death. That is why people are so mad to accumulate money. This madness reaches to a point where you even forget why, in the first place, you had started accumulating money. Then you just go on accumulating money and you lose yourself in the process. You had begun in the hope that it could save you – you did not notice the point when the means became the goal.This is one of man’s most basic diseases: letting a means become a goal. What you thought to use as a means to something becomes your master. What you wanted to attain by a certain means is finally lost in all your efforts, in the means itself.Krishna says that once you know your deathless, you know your inner force, which is Me. Then you will live in this world but not for any accumulating anything power, money, love anything you will live with everything as religiousness, courage to go in and become flow.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 11.24
 Dhwani Shah  
 16 July 2020  

Arriving Home - In Gita Verse 11.24 O all-pervading Viṣṇu, seeing You with Your many radiant colors touching the sky, Your gaping mouths, and Your great glowing eyes, my mind is perturbed by fear. I can no longer maintain my steadiness or equilibrium of mind.Seeing the unexpected Krishna’s opulence form Arjuna felt fear and became still. He is Arriving Home.In my Bhagavad Gita Verse 6.38, blog I wrote - Fear has a beauty of its own, a delicacy and a sensitivity of its own. In fact it is a very subtle aliveness.Fear Always Means the Fear of the Unknown:You will have to drop fear. And if it is a question of choosing between the inner feeling and the fear, choose the inner feeling. Don’t choose the fear. So many people have chosen their religion out of fear, so they live in a limbo. They are neither religious nor worldly. They live in indecision.Fear is not going to help. Fear always means the fear of the unknown. Fear always means the fear of death. Fear always means the fear of being lost, but if you really want to be alive, you have to accept the possibility of being lost. You have to accept the insecurity of the unknown, the discomfort and the inconvenience of the unfamiliar, the strange.That is the price one has to pay for the blessing that follows it, and nothing can be achieved without paying for it. You have to pay for it: otherwise you will remain fear-paralyzed. Your whole life will be lost.Try To Understand What Fear Is:The question is not of getting rid of anything; the question is only of understanding. Understand fear, what it is, and don’t try to get rid of it, because the moment you start trying to get rid of anything, you are not ready to understand it – because the mind which thinks to get rid of is already closed. It is not open to understand, it is not sympathetic. It cannot contemplate quietly; it has already decided. Now the fear has become the evil, the sin, so get rid of it. Don’t try to get rid of anything.Try to understand what fear is. And if you have fear, then accept it. It is there. Don’t try to hide it. Don’t try to create the opposite. If you have fear, then you have fear. Accept it as part of your being. If you can accept it, it has disappeared already. Through acceptance, fear disappears; through denial, fear increases.When you feel inner stillness at that time also - The old habits will continue; the thoughts will go on rushing. And your mind is always in a rush hour, the traffic is always jammed. Your body is not accustomed to sitting silently - you will be tossing and turning. Nothing to be worried about. Just watch that the body is tossing and turning, that the mind is whirling, is full of thoughts - consistent, inconsistent, useless - fantasies, dreams. You remain in your center, just watching."When stillness comes on its own, when silence descends without your effort, when you watch thoughts and a moment comes when thoughts start disappearing and silence starts happening, that is beautiful. The thoughts stop of their own accord, if you don't identify; if you remain a witness and you don’t say, “This is my thought.” You don’t say, “This is bad, this is good,” “This should be there,” “This should not be there.” Then you are not a watcher; you have prejudices, you have certain attitudes. A watcher has no prejudice, he has no judgment. He simply sees like a mirror.At this moment not only Arjuna but we also feel we are losing steadiness or equilibrium of mind, as we are accustomed with mind and its function. But suddenly when inner stillness comes own it’s own we feel that we have lost equilibrium of mind. In fact in that inner stillness we entered into no-mind.When you bring something in front of a mirror it reflects, simply reflects. There is no judgment that the man is ugly, that the man is beautiful the mirror has nothing to say. It’s nature is to mirror; it mirrors. This is what meditation: you simply mirror everything within or without.With your watching and watching, slowly the rush of thoughts starts getting less and less. Moments of silence start appearing; a thought comes, and then there is silence before another thought appears. These gaps will give you the first glimpse of meditation and the first joy that you are arriving home.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 1.15

United We Stand - In Gita Verse 1.15 Lord Kṛṣṇa blew His conch shell, called Pāñcajanya; Arjuna blew his, the Devadatta; and Bhīma, the voracious eater and performer of herculean tasks, blew his terrific conch shell, called Pauṇḍra.Pandava gave their approval and showed their readiness by blowing their conch shells one after the other according to hierarchy and in response to Bhishma. Krishna and Arjuna by blowing their conch shells delivered the message of transcendental, inner strength and stability. One by one everyone started blowing their conch shells. Bhima conveyed his physical strength by blowing his. There was rhythm in their response to Bhishma. They were ready but not excited. There was unity in their team. Unity has different kind of strength. They act from trust on each other. They count on each other's strength. They don’t look for mistakes in each other but stand with each other.When our focus is on the mistake it is a clear indication that we are stuck in the objective world. But when our focus is on the strength it shows that you are respectful towards other person and the universe for its imperfection. As the other person is imperfect so our we and each both can become strength of the other.One of the best examples of the strength of unity is the Indian struggle for freedom. The British were mighty powerful. They controlled and tortured Indians for years. However, even the powerful British officials had to give up when Indians came out together and stood united against them. Many patriotic leaders emerged during those times. Each had his own ideologies and tried to fight the British accordingly. These leaders inspired vast number of Indians who came out in large number to fight against the tyranny of the British.Several protests and processions were carried out during that period. The British government was shaken by these events. People realised the importance of standing together and soon their efforts paid off. The British had to leave the country owing to the mass involvement of Indians in the freedom struggle. Had only a few people come forward to fight, the British would have easily silenced them and continued their rule.Staying United: A Part of Indian CultureOurs is a country with rich tradition and culture. Staying together and helping each other is a part of our culture. Our joint family system is one of the biggest examples of the importance we give to staying united. The joint family system had prevailed in our country for centuries. Unlike the modern times, in the past the families did not only live together but also bonded well. People sat together, chit chatted and had their meals in each other’s company. Staying united helped them in many ways.People in our country did not only live united with their immediate family members but also bonded well with their neighbours and extended family. People stood by each other and acted as a great support system for one another.In India one of the reasons why the percentage of depression and psychological problem is lesser than in other part of the world is because their emotional health is taken care by friends and family members. Also when you live together you become a observer. Also learn how we can become each other’s strength. When you learn all this from your childhood it becomes your nature.“United we stand, divided we fall” means that it is wise to stick together and work in collaboration with others instead of working against each other. Working as a team is a sure shot way to success.Look at Pandava with limited resources, limited amount of finance - as they had just came out from exile, because of their unity they won the war. Kaurava with all the resources, power, finance lost the war because they were divided. Duryodhan was always surprised that why all the brothers of Pandava, with different thinking can stay united. While his brothers were not united. The basic difference was Yudhishthir always listened to them very calmly and gave them freedom to express and act. Freedom of expression and action made them responsible to stay united. While Duryodhana never gave any freedom to his brothers, that’s why they were divided.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 4.30

Intuition - In Gita Verse 4.30 All these performers who know the meaning of sacrifice become cleansed of sinful reactions, and, having tasted the nectar of the results of sacrifices, they advance toward the supreme eternal atmosphere.Krishna tells Arjuna the person who understood from his own knowing that unless we drop all our attachments, judgements and expectation of result, then only we can act from our purity, nectar, compassion.The person who is self-realize and take action without any attachments means no string of mind, to them the supreme or universe send information in advance, we call it intuition.When that intuition starts functioning, is surrender the only technique for that intuition, or the inner guide? Does a person living through intuition always succeed? How do you value success and failure? Is it not true that the person living intuitively will become weak intellectually?Surrender is the only technique for the inner being to become active.Does a person living through intuition always succeed? No, but he is always happy — whether he succeeds or not. And a person not living intuitively is always unhappy whether he succeeds or not. Success is not the criterion because success depends on many things. Happiness is the criterion because happiness depends only on you. You may not succeed because others are competitors there. Even if you are working intuitively, others may be working more cunningly, more cleverly, more calculatingly, more violently, more immorally. So success depends on many other things; success is a social phenomenon. You may not succeed.So the first thing is that Krishna don’t say that if you follow the inner guide you will always succeed – in the sense that the world recognizes success; but in the sense that a Buddha or a Jesus recognizes success, you will succeed. But that success is measured by your happiness, your bliss – whatsoever happens is irrelevant, you will be happy. Whether the world says that you have been a failure, or the world makes you a star, a success, it doesn’t make any difference. You will be happy whatever the case; you will be blissful. Bliss is success to Krishna. If you can understand that bliss is success, then Krishna say you will succeed always.For the world, ego gratification is the success; for Krishna it is not. For Krishna, to be blissful is success – whether anyone knows about you or not. It is irrelevant whether anyone knows about you or not, whether you live totally unknown, unheard of, unnoticed. But if you are blissful, you have succeeded.So remember this distinction because there are many people who would like to be intuitive, who would like to find the inner guide, just to succeed in the world. For them the inner guide will be a frustration. In the first place, they cannot find it. In the second place, even if they can find it, they will be miserable. Because what they are aiming at is recognition by the world, ego fulfillment – not bliss.Be clear in the mind – don’t be success-oriented, result-oriented. Success is the greatest failure in the world. So don’t try to succeed otherwise you will be a failure. Think of being blissful. Every moment think of being more and more blissful. Then the whole world may say you are a failure but you will not be a failure. You have attained.Buddha was a failure in the eyes of his friends, family, wife, father, teachers, society – he was a failure. He had become just a beggar. What type of success is this? He could have been a great emperor: he had the qualities, he had the personality, he had the mind. He could have been a great emperor but he became a beggar. He was a failure – obviously. But I say to you he was not a failure. If he had become an emperor then he would have been a failure because he would have missed the real life. What he attained under the Bodhi Tree was the real and what he lost was unreal.Krishna simply tells Arjuna the person who is blissful, they act but not with the focus on the result or fruits. As they know that as soon as their focus is on the fruits they cannot sacrifice their ego, attachments. Then even if they succeed in their achievements will be rewarded by world but they are not happy. This is sinful. If through your act you don’t get bliss and happiness then that act is from ego. If it gives you bliss then that act is release you from your ego, sinful reactions. It doesn't mean that you will be a failure in the world. You may or may not succeed in terms of world, in yardstick of world, but you will be always blissful.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 4.3
 Dhwani Shah  
 24 October 2019  

Inner Sound - In Gita Verse 4.3 That very ancient science of the relationship with the Supreme is today told by Me to you because you are My devotee as well as My friend and can therefore understand the transcendental mystery of this science.Krishna tells Arjuna this ancient science today again I am revealing to you become devotee, so that you can catch it.Why devotee - The life of a devotee is the life of let-go, of absolute surrender to existence – not to Krishna as body, not to anybody else.A devotee is one whose ego is dead – in a certain sense, one who is absent as far as the ego is concerned and present for the first time, as universal consciousness.Also remember that you can catch ancient science only in utter silence, when you are with universal sound AUM. This is mystery. Silence is not that you can practice it. It will happen own its own.From the AUM whole universe is created. Now NASA has recorded sound of the Sun, which is AUM.When from the AUM everything is created and everything is unique so you cannot follow any scriptures or any Guru. As I have wrote in my Bhagavad Gita Verse 4.2, religion can never be taught, it can only be caught. You need to be sharp, meditative, silent. Once you become silent you will be able to hear the AUM from within in the middle of the market.Guru can only guide us to be silent and when we hear the AUM, they support us. Through their guidance we are introduced to our inner sound, AUM.Krishna when says that understand the transcendental mystery of this science, means that you hear your own sound, which will be your own light and guide you to respond in this present moment. Then in your action there will not be any imitation, but uniqueness, freshness and fragrance of universe.This sound of AUM is our very truth, is our very being. We are made of it. The whole existence vibrates, and through different vibrations of the same sound there are different things, but they are simply different vibrations. A certain vibration creates a tree, another vibration creates a bird, another vibration creates a man, but the whole existence, according to the mystics, is made of sound. This sound is certainly the most sacred, the most divine, because there is nothing more beautiful, nothing more ecstatic. Once you have heard it, even from far away... just a glimpse and you will never be the same person again.All that we are searching for in meditations is nothing but this master thief. We are searching in our being: what kind of dance, what kind of music goes on there in the living center of your life. Strangely enough all those who have entered in have found the same answer, without exception.Meditation is a pure, scientific method. In science you call it observation, observation of the objects. When you move inwards it is the same observation just taking a one-hundred-and eighty-degree turn and looking in. That's what we call meditation. No god is needed, no Bible is needed. You need not have a belief system as prerequisite.An atheist can meditate, just as anybody else can, because meditation is only a method of turning inwards.What Krishna tells to Arjuna religiousness means anything, it means the transcendental mystery of this science, fearlessness. It means taking a risk, putting at stake all that you have, all that is familiar, for the unknown; leaving the known and moving into the unknown. That simple step makes you religious. No other discipline is needed.AUM is the sound when everything else disappears from your being - no thought, no dream, no projections, no expectations, not even a single ripple - your whole lake of consciousness is simply silent; it has become just a mirror. In those rare moments you hear the sound of silence. It is the most valuable experience because it not only shows a quality of the inner music - it also shows that the inner is full of harmony, joy, blissfulness. All that is implied in the music of AUM.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 3.43
 Dhwani Shah  
 21 October 2019  

Wait - In Gita Verse 3.43 Thus knowing oneself to be transcendental to the material senses, mind and intelligence, O mighty-armed Arjuna, one should steady the mind by deliberate spiritual intelligence and thus – by spiritual strength – conquer this insatiable enemy known as lust.Krishna tells that once your inner energy touches your third eye, you will be balanced - for outer and inner - for you it will not be department life but comprehensive life, you will start using your body through your inner senses, body will act but not as doer or for any desire or for any goal. It will be only responding to present moment, from their spiritual senses.He guides Arjuna that act from your inner senses so that you can fight this war without any enmity.We live our life from judgements, interpretations, so when we act we use our outer senses only. We never become self-conscious and drop our judgements to respond in the present moment.We are not able to wait, we are always in hurry to act.Silently waiting is lesson for whole life. Don’t desire, but wait.These are two dimensions, very significant, to be understood. When you desire, you are aggressive to catch hold of something. In the ordinary world desire is the way because so many people are competing, struggling for the same thing. Moreover, the outside world is the world of quantity. It is not inexhaustible; everything outside is exhaustible. You cannot wait, because while you are waiting others may grab the whole thing.The inner world is totally different. There, a desire is a disturbance, an obstacle, because in the inner world you are alone – no question of competition. Nobody else is trying to go ahead of you; nobody is pulling your legs from behind.And the inner world is so delicate that if you are aggressive you will destroy it. It is like being aggressive to a rose flower: you may get it, but it will not be the same rose flower that you had seen dancing in the wind, in the rain, in the sun. It will be something dead – just a corpse, a memory, and nothing more.The inner reality is even more delicate. The very desire is enough to prevent you from getting it. Hence a totally different approach is needed: that is, of silent awaiting.The guest comes.The host just has to be patient.And in the subjective field of consciousness, there is nothing to grab. It is not a quantity, it is a quality. If you are silently waiting – with no desire, no expectation – there comes one moment when your silence is total and your waiting is unpolluted. Then the doors open. You are taken into your own innermost shrine. That has been my teaching.And this is a good opportunity to give a chance to silent waiting. While you were with yourself, you were so filled with universe, with universal presence, with universal words, that you never thought about waiting: universe was available. Now universe can be available not from the outside but only from the inside. And that is a great meeting – of utter fulfillment, of absolute joy. So don’t make it a despair, don’t fall into anguish. Don’t feel that you are far away from universe.You are far away only when you are not silent, you are not with yourself. You are far away only when waiting is not there; otherwise you are very close to universe. Wherever you are, the silence will join you with universe. And your waiting will prepare the whole ground for the meeting, which is nonphysical, nonspatial, nontemporal.Use this opportunity – and remember always that whatever happens has to be used as an opportunity. There is no situation in the world which cannot be used as an opportunity.Krishna is saying that once you experience intangible energy through your body you transcend yourself from all your desire, goals and lust. As when through your body you experience the intangible means you have experience the whole in seed form. As soon as you experience universe from within you allow to grow that seed without any hindrances. Your desire, goals and lust are hinderrance for growth of your consciousness, which wants to grow as tree, vast, whole.He again tell Arjuna if you act from your subjectivity then only you will know that how the same war can become Divine Will. This is transcendence of all our senses of desire to desireless.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 8.16
 Dhwani Shah  
 29 March 2020  

Life Is Within You - In Gita Verse 8.16 From the highest planet in the material world down to the lowest, all are places of misery wherein repeated birth and death take place. But one who attains to My abode, O son of Kuntī, never takes birth again.Few things need to be understood that if it is universal requirements then even Krishna also have to take birth. So the one who is self-realized person he will take the birth but as a consciousness, playfulness, as a role to perform. So he will not take birth to suffer.Krishna is not talking about our physical life and death. What he is saying - Religion is a science to achieve life. Life is beyond death. Birth dies; life, never. To achieve this life you have to do something. Birth is given to you. Your parents have done something: they have loved each other, they have melted into each other, and out of their life force, melting into each other, a new phenomenon, a new seed – you – was born. But you have not done anything for it: it is a gift. Remember, birth is a gift. That’s why all the cultures pay so much respect to parents – birth is a gift, and you cannot repay it. The debt cannot be repaid. What can you do to repay it? Life has been given to you, but you have not done anything for it.Religion can give you a new birth, a rebirth. You can be reborn, but this birth will happen through some alchemical change within you. Just as the first birth happened through two life forces meeting outside you – they created an opportunity for you to enter, to be born: a deep alchemy – now a similar thing has to be done within you. Your parents, your mother and your father, met. Two forces, feminine and masculine, were meeting to create an opportunity for some new entity to be born. Two opposite forces were meeting, two polarities were meeting. And whenever two polarities meet, something new is born, a new synthesis is achieved. A similar thing has to happen within you.You also have two polarities within you, the feminine and the masculine. Let me explain it a little in detail. Your body is born out of two polarities: cells from your mother and cells from your father – they create your body. You have both types of cells – those which came from your mother and those which came from your father. Your body consists of two polarities, feminine and masculine. You are both, everyone is both. Whether you are man or woman makes no difference. If you are a man you have a woman within you: your mother is there. If you are a woman you have a man within you: your father is there. They can again meet within you. And the whole of Yoga, the whole of Tantra, the alchemy, the whole process of religion, is how to create an orgasm, a deep intercourse between polarities within you. When they meet within you, a new type of being is born, a new life becomes alive.One type of orgasm is possible between your body and the body of the polar-opposite sex; it can happen only for a single moment because you meet only on the periphery. The peripheries meet and then they separate. Another type, a deeper type of orgasm, can happen within. But then you meet at the center and there is no need to separate again. Sexual ecstasy can only be momentary; spiritual ecstasy can be eternal. Once attained, you need not lose it. Really, once attained, it is difficult to lose it, impossible to lose it. It becomes such an integration the fragments disappear completely.That’s why when someone asked Buddha, “Who are you? A deva, a heavenly being?” he said, “No.” And the questioner went on asking if he was this or that. Then the questioner became desperate, because Buddha went on saying no. Then finally he asked, “At least you must say that you are male. You must say yes.” Buddha said, “No.” “Then are you a female?” the man asked desperately. Buddha said, “No.” – because a new unity had come into being which was neither male nor female.When your inner man and inner woman meet, you are neither: you transcend sex. That’s the meaning of the oldest Indian image of Shiva as Ardhanarishwar– half man, half woman. That is the symbol of the inner meeting. Shiva is neither: half man, half woman – both and neither. He transcends sex.Remember, unless you transcend sex, you cannot transcend duality. This is a deep psychological problem – and not only psychological, but ontological also. If you remain a man or a woman, how can you conceive the oneness of existence? You cannot. Being a man, you cannot conceive yourself as one with the woman. Being a woman, you cannot conceive yourself as one with the man. A duality persists.Sex is the basic duality. And we have been arguing and discussing for centuries how to attain the nondual. But we go on discussing it as if it is some intellectual matter: “How to attain the nondual?” It is not an intellectual matter; it is ontological, existential. You can attain the nondual only when the duality within you disappears. It is not a question of meditating on the nondual and thinking, “I am brahman.” Nothing will come out of it; you are simply deluding yourself unless the basic duality of sex disappears within you, unless you come to the moment where you cannot say who you are – man or woman.This happens only when your inner man and woman melt so much that they dissolve into each other and all the boundaries are lost, all the distinctions are lost, and they are one. When your inner orgasm, the spiritual ecstasy happens, you are neither. Only when you are neither is life born.Life always comes out of oneness. And the life Osho talks about, or Jesus talks about and Buddha talks about, is the life which will happen when inside you – within you – again a communion, a melting, happens, and the two sexualities within you dissolve.Krishna says - Birth and death – again a duality. They will disappear when you are neither male nor female. When you have a consciousness which goes beyond both, birth and death disappear, matter and mind disappear, this world and that world disappear, heaven and hell disappear. All dualities disappear when the basic duality within you disappears, because all dualities are simply echoing and re-echoing the basic division within you.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 2.35
 Dhwani Shah  
 1 August 2019  

Self-Discipline - In Gita Verse 2.35 The great generals who have highly esteemed your name and fame will think that you have left the battlefield out of fear only, and thus they will consider you insignificant.Krishna is reminding Arjuna that our Dignity, our Pride is our responsibility. It has been created by our consciousness. It is not the product of our unconsciousness. Ego is product of our unconsciousness. All the generals of both the side have highly esteemed your name and fame, right now they are looking towards you that what action you will take. If you runaway from the battlefield out of fear then they will consider you as insignificant. All the generals have highly esteemed your name and fame because of your self-discipline.Foundation of all the discipline is self-discipline. Self-discipline will come from meditation. Meditation gives you insight how to respond in this moment.When does discipline becomes meditation?Never. Discipline never becomes meditation; meditation certainly becomes a discipline, which is self-discipline. Out of freedom person will follow the rules and discipline. Don’t start with discipline otherwise you will never arrive at meditation. Start with meditation and you will arrive at a discipline, and the discipline will not be imposed from the outside. It will be an inner overflow; you will become luminous from within.In fact, to call it ‘discipline’ is not good because it is so utterly free – but still you can call it discipline, self-discipline. Your life will be disciplined, not by any effort, but by your inner understanding. You will behave responsibly, not that you have to behave that way, you will behave responsibly because a conscious man can behave only in that way – there is no other way. You will not behave for any profit, for any motive; you will behave out of your spontaneity; there will be no greed in it. If somebody is a Christian saint, he is greedy; he wants to reach to the Christian paradise. If somebody is a Jain monk, he is greedy, he is a businessman. He is trying to win over by virtue, to be victorious in the other world, to become a spiritual conqueror; but the idea is of greed.If you go and look around the world at monks and saints and mahatmas, you will find ninety-nine per cent of them are just greedy people, materialistic people. They are disciplining themselves because they know that if they sacrifice, great is going to be the pay-off. They are ready to sacrifice, they are ready even to kill themselves – but it is a bargain.A man of meditation, understanding, has no motive, no bargain with reality. How can you bargain with reality? The whole idea is silly. A man of meditation is good because it feels good to be good; there is no motive. He is virtuous because being virtuous he feels so happy and so delighted. He loves, he shares, just like a flower shares its scent, its fragrance – naturally. His virtue is not cultivated, conditioned; it is growth in his being.‘When does discipline become meditation?’Never. Discipline never becomes meditation. But meditation always brings a discipline, an inner discipline. And that discipline is because of freedom. That discipline is not a new cage. That discipline makes you totally free and liberated. You don’t have any commandments to follow, you don’t follow anybody, any scripture. You simply follow your own inner core. And there is no conflict within you, there are no alternatives. You are not to choose, you don’t have to choose to do this or to do that. Whatsoever arises in your being, you do it. There is never any repentance because a man of meditation cannot do wrong – it doesn’t happen. Whatsoever he is doing, he is doing totally; the next moment he has moved beyond it. He never looks back, he never repents: whatsoever happened happened; whatsoever did not happen, did not happen. He neither praises himself: ‘I did this’, neither does he ever feel guilty: ‘Why could I not do this?’ He has no hangover, he is clean-cut from the past. Each moment he moves into the future, each moment the past disappears and he is fresh like the dew-drops in the morning.That discipline has freshness, that discipline has freedom, that discipline has fragrance.Otherwise, discipline makes people dull, stupid. Discipline makes people mediocre; discipline kills your freedom, kills your being; discipline becomes a suicide. So never start with discipline, start with meditation. If discipline comes out of meditation - good, otherwise it is not needed. It is better to have no character than to have a forced character.When we are unconscious we create bondage, right now as Arjuna is unconscious towards self, self-discipline, so Krishna is directing him towards himself, so that he will be in the state of meditation. As meditation is moving towards ourselves. If a person like Arjuna will not be free and liberated to follow self-discipline, then all the great generals will also leave the battlefield with fear.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 6.29
 Dhwani Shah  
 25 January 2020  

Emperor Of Ourselves - In Gita Verse 6.29 A true yogī observes Me in all beings and also sees every being in Me. Indeed, the self-realized person sees Me, the same Supreme Lord, everywhere.Why Krishna says that A true yogī observes Me in all beings and also sees every being in Me. As person who is practicing yoga they know that the whole consists of nothing but sound electrons - which is AUM.The Basic Element of Existence for Yoga Is Sound:Just as physicists think that the whole consists of nothing but electrons, electric energy, yoga thinks that the whole consists of nothing but sound electrons. The basic element of existence for yoga is sound because life is nothing but a vibration. Life is nothing but an expression of silence. Out of silence we come and into silence we dissolve again. Silence, space, nothingness, nonbeing, is your innermost core, the hub of the wheel. Unless you come to that silence, to that space where nothing else remains except your pure being, liberation is not attained. This is the yoga framework.They divide your being into four layers. I am speaking to you; this is the last layer. Yoga calls it vaikhari; the word means ‘fruition’, flowering. But before I speak to you, before I utter something, it becomes manifest to me as a feeling, as an experience; that is the third stage. Yoga calls it madhyama, ‘the middle’. But before something is experienced inside, it moves in a seed form.You cannot experience this ordinarily unless you are very meditative, unless you have become so totally calm that even a stirring in the seed which has not sprouted yet can be perceived; it is very subtle. Yoga calls that pashyanti; the word pashyanti means ‘looking back’, looking to the source. And beyond that is your fundamental being out of which everything arises. That is called para; para means ‘the transcendental’.To us it is very easy to understand like this. We don’t need any reason or explanation that children from the same parent feel that they are one, they are not separate. They can feel and see their brothers and sisters in themselves and themselves in their brothers and sisters.Now the person who has experience himself as transcendental had his own experience that everyone is born from AUM. Now even NASA says the same thing. So for self-realized person sees Universe, the same Supreme Lord, everywhere. Not only Supreme Lord, everywhere but he will find himself everywhere and everything within him.Krishna is saying that self-realized person is Omnipresent.Inside, nothing is needed. Inside, you are perfect. Inside, nothing is to be done, everything is as it should be, it is already the case.The search is for this inner being, and that inner being is omnipotent. No power can become a substitute for it. You may become a Napoleon or a Hitler or anybody you imagine, but you will remain powerless. Unless you become a Buddha or a Jesus, you cannot become omnipotent, you cannot be all-powerful. You may become an Einstein or Bertrand Russell, but you cannot be all-knowing. You may collect as much information as you can, but your inner ignorance will remain the same unless you become a Jesus, a Zarathustra; then you become all-knowing.The search is for omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence. Remember these three words. They are derived from the Sanskrit root, AUM. In Sanskrit, AUM is the symbol for the whole universe. It carries three basic sounds: A-U-M. Through these three basic sounds all the sounds have evolved. So AUM is the basic sound, the synthesis of all the basic roots. That’s why Hindus have been saying that AUM is the secret mantra, the greatest mantra, because it implies the whole existence.The three English words, omnipresent, omnipotent, omniscient, are derived from AUM. They mean one who has become as powerful as AUM, one who has become as knowing as AUM, one who has become as present as AUM; one who has become universal, one who has become the all. And unless the all is achieved, there cannot be any contentment, there cannot be a deep, ultimate satisfaction. You will remain a beggar, and you will go on begging from one life to another; you will move like a beggar, you cannot be the emperor.Krishna wants all of us to be emperor of ourselves. He is not interested in the emperor of some piece of land. But emperor of ourselves. Who is omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence. Where you are in all beings and also sees every being in you. When Krishna uses the word Me he doesn't mean separate from you. He simply means you and me as universe.

Bhagavad Gita Verse 4.1
 Dhwani Shah  
 22 October 2019  

Inner Science - In Gita Verse 4.1 The Personality of Godhead, Lord Śrī Kṛṣṇa, said: I instructed this imperishable science of yoga to the sun-god, Vivasvān, and Vivasvān instructed it to Manu, the father of mankind, and Manu in turn instructed it to Ikṣvāku.Krishna is saying that this is not the first time I am sharing with you Arjuna, the sciences of inner, I have shared this knowledge before also to the sun-god, Vivasvān, and Vivasvān instructed it to Manu, the father of mankind, and Manu in turn instructed it to Ikṣvāku.They also have shared with others by knowing and creating their own experience. They took this knowledge but without practicing on them, without creating their own experience they have not shared with anyone.If you will take this knowledge and fight this war without enmity, it will become your knowing and not knowledge, and you will be able to share your experience of Fighting Without Enmity to future humanity. They will also learn that how we need to take any information and knowledge from others. When Krishna says the science of yoga means that don’t reject any knowledge but never try to share with others without you have experiments with yourself. You are your own laboratory for your inner science. If without experiencing that if you will share with others it will be egoistic. You will like to use that words to others to control others by your knowledge.Never reject your body but use it knowledge to act through your body, then wait and listen to your body guidance, but like scientist never repeat that action again, always find out how you can act innovatively. If you will repeat your action it will be from knowledge and not from your knowing.Try this experiment - when Krishna tells Arjuna to fight without enmity, don’t take it as words, but try to act without anger. Just remember that in your action there is no anger. And you will be surprise that every time when anger comes with your reminder to yourself, - I will act without anger - you will find that all the time your action and respond in that circumstances will be different.This is the message of universe, message of Krishna, Christ, Osho, Buddha. Use your body but respond through your own self-remembering.In my Bhagavad Gita Verse 1.4, I wrote in detail regarding self-remembering.First step to transcend your knowledge to knowing is self-remembering. Wait and look inside if you know that some intangible guidance through your body - means you have directed your senses from second door - from inner - then take any action. This will give you freshness, relaxed experience, silence. This is sign of your action from knowing and not from the knowledge.One of the simplest way is to be total in your action to transcend from knowledge to knowing.The miracle is that when one can go into one’s emotions a hundred percent, all that is wrong starts disappearing. That is the miracle. And all that is right starts growing. A really total person will not be able to be angry. In the beginning when you start you will be more and more angry, but soon the point comes when you are totally angry and see the naked futility of anger, the utter absurdity of anger, the insanity of anger. When you have seen it – not because Buddha has said so or I have said so – it will drop. The seeing is enough. You need not drop it, it drops of its own accord.A total person will be able to love and unable to hate. A total person will be able to be compassionate and will be unable to be angry. That is the end. I am not telling you to be a buddha right now. But one has to begin somewhere. One has to start moving in the direction of being a buddha.You will miss the point if you try to follow the words go in totality. With that you may like to become perfectionist. No - I am not teaching you any kind of perfectionism, I am not giving you any ideals. Totality is certainly not an ideal; it sounds as if it is. It is just a different style of life. Right now you are living a lifestyle which can be called partial – only parts of your being are allowed to surface, only the tip of the iceberg. You are living in fragments, you are living split. This is a kind of schizophrenic life.Misery is bound to be the outcome of it – misery and only misery. Bliss is the consequence of being one, integrated. That’s exactly the meaning of the word yoga: union, integration, oneness.Krishna tells Arjuna to be total and experience all his senses from inside, so that he can act from his knowing and not from his knowledge.
