Why does our mind run after fame money and glamor? Is it necessary?

Guruji: Well, you got this question! First, you understand that the mind is running. Then you get this question, ‘Is it necessary?’ I leave this question to you. It is very personal, very individual. I don’t think it is necessary. But my answer will not necessarily suffice for you. It has to come from within. Otherwise, it will be just a mood making. ‘Oh, I don’t want money’, but one part of the mind will say, ‘No, I need money.’ One mind will say, ‘I don’t need fame and another will say, ‘No, I need fame’. Like this, the conflict starts happening. But when you wake up and see, and see those people who have had all this – how shallow and hollow they are, then naturally you find there is no significance in all this. Then neither will you crave for it, nor will you make any effort to renounce it. People who say, ‘I don’t want fame’, inside, somewhere, the mind is saying, ‘Oh, I want fame, I want fame’. When the sun has arisen, what is the use of torchlight? You are moving with torchlight and suddenly you realize there is no meaning in moving with the torchlight, when the sun is there. Then that is your experience, your true experience. So when you run behind things which are illusive – you will realize that it is causing more pain, more suffering and ‘it is not giving me what I really want’.

Then there is fulfillment, centeredness, a subtle solid strength comes from within. Then if fame comes, money comes, it doesn’t touch you. It comes or doesn’t come, doesn’t matter to you. ‘I want it’ or ‘I don’t want it’ are two sides of the same coin. Somewhat we need to be – let it be.

====================

The tougher the situation, the more it will make you think of the ways of your communication. How to communicate to the other person? What to do in which situation? All this can bring out a lot of frustration in you. And this is the challenge that you have to take.

======================

When your commitment is very strong then your achievement does not excite you or throw you off balance. You will see it as one stepping stone in your path.

Cause of Terrorist Attacks and Remedy

On one hand you feel pity and compassion for these people because they have never had exposure to true human values or spiritual knowledge. They are dedicated spiritually, they want to go somewhere to heaven, they want to meet God and they want to do God’s work. This is what is motivating them to do all this nonsense. If only they had exposure to the right knowledge, to the wisdom of meditation and of Vedanta.

Had they known that divinity is within each and every one of us, here and now; do you think they would go and do such things? Never! So the onus of responsibility lies on us too. We have not made the knowledge reach the entire world. We have to expand the reach of this knowledge to every nook and corner of this world. Like how people all over the world know how to brush their teeth. I would say that nearly all of the 7 billion people know how to brush their teeth. Why is it so? It is because we have taught them. We have cultured it in them.

Everybody wears clothes. Everybody takes a shower. Like this, everyone has to be taught mental hygiene, and meditation is mental hygiene. Knowledge keeps you mentally sane. Like dental hygiene, we must teach mental hygiene also to everyone in the world.

Teaching people non-violence is the first step towards it. “What are you fighting for? Why are you killing each other? Come on wake up”. In the name of religion, all these heinous crimes are happening because they think that they are doing good and they will go to heaven if they do it. They need an education that can make them experience heaven here and now. They do not need to look somewhere else. This is essential.

Peace education is missing in the world. If every child is taught the way to manage his own emotions and his own mind stuff, the world would be a much better place. You may not be able to eliminate violence totally, but you can reduce it to the minimum level.

” ॐ शांति शांति शांति ” में शांति शब्द का उच्चारण तीन बार क्यों किया जाता है ?

मनुष्य एक सामाजिक प्राणी है जो हमेशा भीतर और बहार शांति की खोज में लगा रहता है. मनुष्य या तो अपने लिए ख़ुद विघ्न खड़ा करता है या फिर दुसरे लोग उसकी शांति में बाधा उत्पन्न करते है. जब तक कोई उपद्रव नही होता वहां शांति रहती है. वादविवाद शांत होने के बाद शांति उसी तरह कायम हो जाती है जैसे पहले थी. आज के वातावरण में झमेलों के चलते शांति की खोज बहुत कठिन है. कुछ लोग होते है जो कठिन से कठिन परिस्तिथि में भी शांत रहते है. हिंदू धर्म में शांति का आह्वान करने के लिए मंत्र, यज्ञ आदि के अंत में तीन बार शांति का उच्चारण किया जाता है जिसे त्रिव्रम सत्य भी कहा जाता है. सम्पूर्ण दुखो के तीन उद्भव स्थान माने गए है और तीन बार शांति का उच्चारण करके इन उद्भव स्थानों को संबोधित किया जाता है.

  • पहली बार शांति का उद्घोष अधिदेव शांति के लिए किया जाता है. इसमे ईश्वरीय शक्ति जैसे प्राकृतिक आपदाये, भूकंप, ज्वालामुखी, बाढ़ आदि जिन पर मानव का कोई नियंत्रण है  उसे शांत रखने की प्रार्थना की जाती है.
  • दूसरी बार शांति का उद्घोष आधिभौतिक शांति के लिए किया जाता है. इसमे दुर्घटना, प्रदुषण, अधर्म, अपराध आदि से शांत बने रहने की प्रार्थना की जाती है.
  • आखरी बार शांति का उद्घोष आध्यात्मिक शांति के लिए किया जाता है. इसमे ईश्वर से प्रार्थना की जाती है की हम अपने रोजमर्रा में जो भी सामान्य या अतरिक्त कार्य करे उसमे हमें किसी भी प्रकार की बाधाओ का सामना करना पड़े.

Guidance to Youth Who Want to Join Politics

First, you do your sadhana and broaden you vision.

Second, you need to have enormous patience. You go with a big vision and there are all chances that your vision is squashed and smashed and it may reach a point that you will want to throw it away. But, don’t lose heart.

You may have to face disappointments one hundred times, but the 101th time you will succeed, but for this you need to have patience and perseverance. You should hold onto your vision and your ethics.

Third, never forget your spiritual side. Whatever work you have and however busy you are, take that much needed 4-5 days for a silence program once in a year. Take 20 minutes every day to sit and listen to knowledge and meditate. This will keep your energy up.

As a politician be careful about two things:

Money

Sex

These are the two things with which people can create scandals about you. You have to be careful not to be maligned. It is very easy to be maligned and then you will waste all your time in proving these false allegations. Better be careful from the very beginning as these are the two areas that can create scandals against you.

In the field of politics, when you are moving ahead, there are a hundred people trying to pull you down. So as a young, enthusiastic aspirant, you have to be very clean on these areas.

Another point is, don’t make politics a profession, it should be your mission. If it is your mission, you get enormous strength, energy and enthusiasm. But if you make it a profession you will have to experience a lot of wear and tear. So, keep these points in mind.

===================

If you hide from the guru, and don’t open your heart and share your mistakes then even if the guru wants to help you, he will not be able to help you.

Handling Harassment

You have to see the situation and respond accordingly. If someone is constantly bothering you, then either you move away from there, or you confront that person. I will not advise you to bear someone’s harassment forever. Try to change the situation with intelligence, with tact, with strength and with love. You cannot do this only with power. If someone says that ‘I will change the situation only using physical power, it is not possible. There is a need for tact and intelligent action also. Love can melt even the hardest stones. With love you can bring the change.

========================== 

Q: We have heard that Navratri is the triumph of Sattva over Rajas and Tamas. But are not all the three Gunas equally important for life to exist? How can we favour one over the other?

Guruji: No, it is always like that. One of the three will dominate. Sattva is always there in everybody, and so is Rajas and Tamas. All the three Gunas always exist together. But what dominates is what makes the difference. If Tamo guna dominates, there is misery. When Rajoguna dominates, there are conflicts. When Satguna dominates, there is awareness, knowledge and happiness. You should observe which is dominating, since that is what gives quality to that time.

========================== 

Q: What is the difference between Guru, God and the soul?

+Guruji: Guru is knowledge, Guru is love. Guru is light, there is no difference between Guru, God and the Soul.
==========================

If you find you have some sins, give it to me, I will take care of it. Don’t worry about it. You give me your past and I will take responsibility of your past. You have nothing to do about it. You are relieved of your past. Forget about it. Move on to the future. The future is on a platter for you, fresh; so drop your past coat here.
==========================

Secret of Influence
Wanting to influence is itself a problem. What do you get by influencing people around you? You don’t know one secret: if you influence somebody, or make a big impression on them, they become jealous of you. And then, they try to pull you down. Or they don’t care and they make fun of you. In either case, what do you gain? More problems.

Just be your natural self. Simplicity, honesty, contentment, creativity – these will influence all the people around you.

Jesus – Embodiment of Love

Love is the most sought-after but least expressed mystery of life. We try to express love in so many ways, still it remains a mystery. And it rarely happens that love is expressed in its fullness, in its totality.

Jesus and love are synonymous. If you say love, you need not say Jesus and if you say Jesus, it means love. Jesus once said, “If you call God in my name, whatever you ask shall be given. For God is love.” You find such a complete expression of love in Jesus. Whatever little glimpses you may get here and there indicates that fullness, that ultimate expression of the inexpressible that life is striving to express all the time.

Love makes you weak, but brings you the kingdom of heaven. However strong you are, you are the weakest when you are in love. Yet love is the strongest force on this universe. Since love makes you weak, it also is scary. Among thousands, just a few followed Jesus. Many heard, but just a few came. Even after performing many miracles, only handful of people could recognise him.

Jesus said, “I have come to put man against man, father against son, daughter against mother.” Very few people have really understood what it means. Whom you think is your friend is really not a friend because he or she makes your faith on the matter strong, and spirit weak. “I have come to put one against each other, I have come to put fire, not make peace.” Jesus said this because he knew the depth of slumber. When you talk something nice, peaceful, everybody will go to sleep and when there is something sensational, people wake up and listen. This is how the human mind operates. And Jesus made all efforts for one to cross the mind and get into the soul, the spirit, the source of life, the Self. You break through the limited identities and recognise the Divinity within you. You are much more than just a human; you are part of the Divine. And you inherit the kingdom. And that kingdom is right here, right within you.

Love has no name, nor form. Love is abstract, yet it is very concrete. It has no name or form but manifests in all names and in all forms. This is the mystery of creation. You can see love everywhere in this creation if only you have an eye to see it. Just see a bird, and a small one in the nest. The bird comes and how it feeds its young one. See how the young one waits for the mother bird to come. There is love in it. There is love among fish. There is love in the sky. There is love underneath the water. There is love on the ground. And there is love in the outer space.

Every form is full of love and every name represents love. And that is how Jesus is One with the Father. Father is One with his creation. In India, the creation and creator are compared to the dance and the dancer. You cannot have a dance without a dancer. Dancer is in every move of the dance. The creator is in every spec of the creation. That is what is omnipresent, omnipotent. If God is omnipresent, he is present everywhere, isn’t it? The creator, if he is different from the creation, then he is not present in his creation. Then he is not omnipresent. The whole definition of God is gone.

Love is present everywhere, but somewhere it finds total expression. And the knowledge of the Self leads you towards that total expression of love, of blossoming of love. It lifts your eyes from all tiny little things. One Divine is providing for everybody. Neither the python goes to work nor the birds toil. Everybody is taken care of. Everything is taken care of.

Jesus said, “Love each other as much as I love you.” What more do you need to see that embodiment of love?

सत्संग और महात्माओं का प्रभाव -११ –

‘महात्मा’ शब्द से यहाँ किसी आश्रम से सम्बन्ध नही है । कोई गृहस्थ हो, सन्यासी हो, वानप्रस्थी हो या ब्रह्मचारी हो-जिनमे महात्माओं के लक्षण, जो गीता में बताये है, मिलते है, वे महात्मा है । महात्माओं की महिमा जितनी  गाई जाय, थोड़ी है; जैसे गंगा जी की महिमा जितनी गाई जाये थोड़ी है । गंगा सारे संसार का उद्धार कर सकती है, किन्तु यदि कोई गंगा में स्नान करने ही न जाय, गंगा-जलपान करे ही नहीं, तो इसमें गंगाजी का क्या दोष है । इसी प्रकार कोई महापुरुषों से लाभ नही उठावे तो उसमे महापुरुष का कोई दोष नहीं ।

एक गंगा से ही सबका कल्याण हो सकता है; क्योकि शास्त्र में कहा गया है की गंगा में स्नान करने से, उसका जलपान करने से मनुष्यों के सारे पापों का नाश हो जाता है और आत्मा का उद्धार हो जाता है । गंगाजी की भांति ही महात्मा पुरुष लाखों-करोड़ों पुरुषों का उद्धार कर सकते है । और सारे संसार के मनुष्यों का उद्धार होना भी कोई असम्भव तो है ही नहीं, हाँ, कठिन अवश्य है । क्योकि उनमे श्रद्धा हुए बिना तो कल्याण हो ही नही सकता और श्रद्धा होना कठिन है । प्रथम तो महापुरुष संसार में मिलते
ही कठिनता से है; क्योकि संसार के करोड़ों मनुष्यों में कोई एक महापुरुष होता है-जैसे गीताजी में श्रीभगवान् ने कहा है-

मनुष्याणां सहस्रेषु कश्चिद्यतति सिद्धये ।
यततामपि सिद्धानां कश्चिन्मां वेत्ति तत्त्वत: ॥ (गीता ७/३)

‘हजारों मनुष्यों में कोई एक मेरी प्राप्ति के लिए प्रयत्न करता है । और उन यत्न करने वाले योगियों में भी कोई एक मेरे परायण होकर मुझको तत्व से अर्थात यथार्थ रूप से जानता है ।’

भगवान् को जो तत्व से जानता है, वही महात्मा है । प्रथम तो लाखों-करोड़ों में कोई एक महात्मा होता है, फिर उसका मिलना भी बहुत दुर्लभ है, मिलने पर भी उसे पहचानना उससे भी कठिन है ।.
