God, Meditation- That Sacred Light

Unseen is important. To stay young eternally; float inside you and drink the nectar.

Jiffy ago, my heart initiated your love song- it is coming from the wind. The wind is singing a song; wind is always singing some song. The wind itself is music that injects life in you. 

Your surviving depends on the wind. And, such an important factor of your life is unseen. Wind injects life in you. 
  • Stay healthy
  • Take a deep breath 
You believe is unseen. Your faith is unseen. Almighty is unseen. Your dream is unseen. Your soul is unseen. Meditation is unseen. You can feel, you cannot see. 

You can see the Sun. You can see the Moon. This seeing is unseen. Unseen is powerful. You can believe; you can have faith in its authenticity through the touch. What is unseen is not in your hand; you cannot do anything about it. 

You feel the touch. Feeling is everything. The feeling is the source of your believe. You can feel the touch, you cannot see the feeling. This touch is sacred. This touch is God’s touch. God is touching you. 

And, to feel the touch of the God stay awake. Do not sleep. In your sleep also, stay awake. This is possible. After death also staying awake is possible. This awakening is Nirvana. This awakening happens; it cannot be forced. Float with your life and your life will take you to your destined place. 

Understand this first, that happening of Nirvana is effortless. If you do not understand; it might be dangerous. It might lead you to madness. 

After visiting your religious places, after reading few holy books, after hearing sermons of your religious Guru, it starts appearing to you that now you are awakened. 

After doing meditation; sitting and concentrating on any one object for hours together every day; one day this feeling comes to you that you are now awakened.  This is dangerous. This is delusion. This is madness. 

The mind is extremely powerful. Your mind creates an illusion as per your choice, and you think, you believe that you have got your desired results. Now, wearing a rob you start preaching. And a new Guru takes birth. And a new religion takes a birth. 

The Universe is continuing. You are also continuing, to move with The Universe; along with your madness. Result; look at the madness around you. It seems as if entire Universe has turned into a lunatic asylum. 

Stay in tune with the Nature.  Listen to the song of the birds. Listen to the music of the wind. Stay in a moment. Stay awakened. Control your mind. Feel the Cosmic Touch. Float with the wind, dance with the wind. 

And in this intoxication of your dance, and in this frenzy of your ecstatic frenzy, no movements at all, stay frozen, stay awakened. In that glorious moment, whatever is happening to you let it happen, do not interrupt; do not force your choice. 

Stay motionless. Accept the verdict. Become the witness. Become the witness of your life. Look at you, feel the vibration, whatever is happening to you. This feeling is Godly; you may feel the Godliness. 

And the day this feeling of Godliness touches you that very moment you are enlightened. And that moment onward your journey starts. 

And all through your journey stay a witness. You do not have to listen to any sermons; you do not have to read any holy books. God has already written about your life inside you. 

Cast a deep glance within and become a witness in seeing; The sacred Light...

Meditation- Life and You...

Have you ever met life? 

To meet life; just stays original. No plagiarism. Do not follow anybody. 

Listen to you. Stay alert. Just float with moments. Feel cosmic vibration. This is meditation. This is life. 

Whatever thought is coming to you, accept it. Do not start judging of it authenticity; just accept. Accept it as it is. Keep floating, no efforts. 

Become a witness of happenings of whatever is happening to you. Stay awakened. Do not try to shape your future. Allow your future to come to you. 

Stay in tune with the Universe. Perform this simple exercise-.
  • Move inside you. 
  • Listen, what your silence is telling you.
  • Your silence is, asking you, not to go anywhere. 
  • Stay here. 
Whatever you want from your life, it is lying here inside you. You do not have to go anywhere. Your happiness is within you. Stay in tune with the Universe. Hear the song of the nature. Dance with cosmos. Stay fulfilled. Stay bliss. 

Remember, in a state of bliss too, your stress will keep coming to you. You cannot get away with your mundane problems. Frustration will come to you. Failure in life will come to you. A broken marriage, broken relationship will keep coming to human life. Al sorts of stress which you have been facing, will come. 

The only difference in a state of bliss is, here you are awakened. In a state of bliss, you are aware of cosmic mishaps. In a state of bliss, you are not affected. Here you are walking through the lake; without getting wet.  

To understand life you have to understand you. To understand life, understand you first. And to understand you, meditate. Meditation is the answer of your misery. 

Misery in human life is unavoidable. Learn how to tackle your misery. To tackle your misery, accept your misery. When you are accepting your misery, stay awakened. 

Your mind keeps thinking, scheming new planes all the time. Your mind keeps you occupied all the time. And this is the reason of your misery. This is the reason of your stress. You have no time, you are busy. You have no time to look at you. You have no time to stay in tune with the nature. 

Start talking to the trees. Start hearing the wind. Stay in tune with the nature. And wake-up. Wake-up and enjoy your life. Wake-up, and see yourself; all mysteries of life getting unfolded before you. 

When no mystery of life is left before you then; for the first time you will meet life. Creation of human life is Almighty's master stroke. To enjoy the beauty of life, wake-up. 

You are sleeping. It might appear to you that you have woken-up. You are not. You are still sleeping. You are living your life through your mind. Start living your life through your entire body. Feel the sensation of your entire body. Move into each and every part of yours staying alert. You feel fresh. 

You will feel blessed. You will be in tune with Universe. You will understand the Law of attraction. You will attract the Universe. You will attract the Nature. You will start floating in a moment. You will meet the Cosmic silence. 

You will start talking to you. God resides in you. You will realize that you are in conversation with the Almighty. You will realize that God has created you with immense power. 

Do this and meet Miracle. Meet The Almighty. You will realize that to achieve anything in life you have to just look within. You will realize that you are the conqueror. 

And you will realize that towards Happiness just now you have taken forward; The First step...

Meditation, Freedom, Circumstance, and You...

And, unless you become confused; you will not realize who you are?

Your life starts; after a confusion. 

You have to pin the Volcano of nectar, inside you. You have to refuse the God's dictate; if God denies you freedom. God has set you free. Because, only in freedom; you can talk to The God; you can converse with you 

When acceptance becomes a compulsion; whether you wish or not, you have to accept it; 'Expression', loses its meaning; how to express?  

If, you are not free, you cannot move on. Without freedom you are living a dead life. And this is what has happened to you, since ages; you are living a dead life; The most surprising part of it that; you never realized this; that you are living a dead life; till now. You do not know; how to express? 

This acceptance is not out of your choice; it is an unavoidable compulsion; by circumstance. Circumstance; plays an important role in your life. 

Time, Person and Place; these three factors in life are important; one has to move so, there is no other way. And these three factors are not in your hand; you cannot mold it, per your convenience. 

You have to pin the volcano, of the nectar inside you. You have to make an attempt to pin the volcano. You agreed also; and you were about to pin it; suddenly at the spur of the moment; that very second, something unexpected happened; and you could not pin it; you back. And, now you are waiting for another opportunity to pin it. 

You are aware of this fact; that there, there inside you is sitting a volcano of nectar, and you have to pin it. Sometimes; it happens, things do not move the way you wish it to move. You have to wait for the right time, the right opportunity. 

This is also true, that sometime, you spend your entire life in waiting. And in spite of knowing the fact, that you have to pin the volcano, you could never pin it, because of the unfavorable circumstance. And this way your entire life you have wasted in waiting. 

The universe moves in a mysterious way. It cannot be unfolded; this code cannot be decoded. And, you have to move out from this compulsion grip, of the circumstance. Freedom is your right. This is beyond your power, you cannot get freedom. But, come what may you have to get freedom. This, 'have to' move out from the grip of circumstance, is important.

You have to understand the need of moving out; from the grip of circumstance. You have to become powerful. Become more powerful than your unfavorable circumstance, or from your bad luck. Refuse, to accept the undesired dictates, of the circumstance. 

You are independent. You are happy. Become restless. You have to refuse God's dictate. You have to get what you want from the God. And for that; you have to understand you first; you have to understand, you want. You have to understand; do you really deserve it? Are you really capable of handling it; when The God grants your desired result to you? 

You have to be honest with you. And it is difficult, honest with you. Because you are in control of your mind. Your mind has been ruled you, continuously deceiving you; luring you in a wrong direction.

Your mind is telling you to accept the fact; that you deserve it. When reality is; that you do not deserve it. And this is the place when you come under the grip of Circumstance. 

You are the circumstance; you are the want; you are the giver; you are the taker. You have to realize this. This realization is self-realization, Consciousness, awareness. This awareness comes through meditation. 

Realizing life; realizing you, comes through meditation. And through meditation, a time comes, when you realize this supreme fact; that you do not need meditation.

And realizing the fact, that meditation is not needed; comes through meditation. Meditation might seem confusing to you. And unless you become confused; you will not realize; you; your life starts; after a confusion. 

And to come out of the grip of Circumstance; and to lead a free, independent life; you have to realize you. You are born very powerful. You are the best creation of the almighty. Almighty, has equipped with you all kinds of necessary devices. 

You do not have to go somewhere to learn it, Keep floating with the moment; staying awakened; stay alert; Keep your eyes open; do not sleep; look within, and come out from the grip of Circumstance. You have led a compelled life, all through your life. 

The most shocking part is; you never realized this, that you are living a dead life.

You never felt the touch of a passing wind. You never realized; just now, a fragrance coming out of a beautiful flower has entered you; you never realized this. 

Nature is showering its blessings all over. Not realizing this; you are somewhere, in your future.

To feel free; to live free; you have to come out of this grip of the Circumstance. And that coming out is possible; only through you. No God; no prayer will help you. Only, you have to help you. 

Your mind can create miracles. The only method you have to learn is; how to use your mind. And that is possible. To come out from the grip of the Circumstance; to live a free, independent life; The only way is, you have to use your mind. 

Way of thinking differs from people to people; what works for others might not work for you. Hence, to use your mind; to break the chain; to come out of the grip of Circumstance; to breathe free; cast a deep glance within. 

And when you look within, you will find; the God is smiling there, and you will hear that She / He is saying that; "now on; freedom is yours; take a breath, lead a free life"...

Meditation, Hope, and You...

Catharsis was about to lose its value. happiness was giving a petulant look to the mundane crisis. Evangelism, fading away gradually in eternity; looked at the breath; a faint smile came. Still, hope is there; he was breathing. When everything is lost; hope keeps you awaken.

And, when you are awakened; any moment the lightning can happen. Hope is strong; it gives you a reason to live. Under any circumstance; hope survives. Whether you are hoping against hope; or your hope is false; you are finished completely, your this hope is shallow; it does not matter. What matters is; Hope is alive.

And the rejuvenated system of yours; bounced back to life. And, out of no where music started playing; once again. This is the most beautiful challenge to your adversity. Yes, this is true 'never say die'. You are surviving; you are breathing; and, so is your hope.

Hope is meditation; it gives you a meaning to live with. your shadow might leave you; just to prove that slogan right, that 'sometimes, even your shadow deserts you', but, you have to move with your breath. Do not ask for forgiveness; don't be silly, you have not done anything wrong. It's merely your much deserving right, which you are opting for; you should have got it long back.

If happiness is not coming to you; stay happy. Stay happy under any circumstance. Certainly, this state of of being happy under any circumstance; is not the acceptance of your miserable life; you are merely laughing amidst adversity.

You have to be little careful here; it is tricky. The God is tricky; she/he keeps playing merciless tricks with you, just to judge you; whether you are true to your demands or not, whether you really deserve your asked demand, or you do not deserve it.

It is She/He who keeps you happy even in your adversity; just to test you; that, if you are happy, if you are satisfied, even this mediocre way of your life, then you deserve this kind of life; you are made for this kind of life; you do not deserve a luxurious, successful life.  

What you deserve; you get. If you are laughing amid you adversity; without surrendering to misery's dictate; and if you are continuously challenging God; saying, that though you are laughing, it is certainly not acceptance of this mediocre life.

If you are continuously challenging God; proving your worth, yelling at Her/Him, that, "though, you are in misery, amid adversity, still you are fighting to come out of it. You are restless here. Continuous tortures  of yours (almighty) could not deter me, could shake my faith in me. Though, you (God) have compelled me to live in this kind of miserable life; yet, I have not become habituated, to these kind of miserable, poor; amid poverty, defeated, mediocre life".

"I am a King, I am a winner; and I have proved it a million times to you. Yet, though deprived of all kinds of happiness; I am deserving this kingly life; full of luxury; successful life. O God; O creator of all; you have made me a King. You have made me rich in nature. You have given me a royal nature; how can you ask me to live in misery; amid poverty; a mediocre life"?

"And in the process, on the path of my journey towards you; you (God) have snatched all happiness from me; yet I am not used to live this kind mediocre life, which I have been compelled to lead since ages; till now".

"Without being malicious towards any body; O God; I would like to draw your kind attention that; there are people who are satisfied with their life, whatever you have given them; they are happy with their mediocre life. They say that you have given them bread and butter and they are happy with that; they are thankful to You. I am not".

"I am not happy; merely with bread and butter. I need chicken; and this thought; you have given me. You have made me in this way. Now, after this prolonged failure, you (God) kept putting obstacles in my ways. You (God), kept destroying all my efforts. And without any complains to you; I am still fighting for my rights; for happiness".

"Now, the very life is going to an end; any moment. O God; O creator of this Universe; wake-up and bestow your kind smile upon me too".

And, after your this conversation with your God; keep fighting; keep asking for the chicken; keep fighting for your right. When you die; either people will say 'a winner has gone', or they will say 'a hero; a fighter is gone'. Never give-up. Hope keeps you alive; and you keep your hope alive.

Hope is powerful; it injects life into you. Get what you want from your life; but first judge yourself. Judging yourself; is not an easy job. The power, of judging yourself; comes through meditation. Keep making an effort, to get what you want from life.

Meditation opens all doors. Whatever techniques of meditation come your way, use it, and meditate.

Compulsions apart; whether it is coming to you  by little unfavorable wind, or these compulsions are coming to you by your bad luck, or God is testing you; have faith in you; keep faith alive in you And, if you really deserve it; nothing can distract you. Allow you hope to keep you alive...

Meditation, Money, Frustration, and You...

Jiffy ago; Life emerged, unscathed, smiling, once again; after being drowned in the vortex of harsh irregularities of life; perhaps, I do not know, caused by few unfavorable, unknown negative power.

And it seems;  I am loosing the grip once again; and everything is coming to a standstill, once again, and life is moving too fast once again, and the end is near, once again, and one poet is crooning somewhere, once again, that "Almighty has granted only four days; out of those, two days have spent in desiring, and the rest two days is spent in waiting"!

And finally a compelled God is asking a question; once again-, "What do you want"? 

And, gathering my shattered wits, I am answering the God, once again. Without wasting the time in lamenting, and searching the reason of my disastrous failure, either in me, or in the stars, or in fate, or luck; without blaming anyone; I am busy detecting new opportunities; from where I can breath fresh; and I should come into the life victorious; once again.

And I got it. And I am answering God's query, once again- 'Dear God, out of those four days, which you had granted, two is wasted in desiring; but dear God, rest two days are still left untouched; you have not finished my breath, yet!

Dear God, with all my wit, wisdom, knowledge, education, efforts, my prayer to you, I wish to make those untouched two days; as a jumping board, towards eternal glory. 

Dear God, Sir, my only problem is, time is running too fast, and those untouched two days are about to be finished any moment; in waiting to receive your glorious smile bestowed upon me.

Hence, Dear God; whatever breath I have left in this life; let me live; as per my nature; which is given by you'.

The only serious problem is; the end is hurrying near, and your well defined efforts are crashing, one after another. Yet, you have the vigor; you have the stamina, you have the capacity; but this finishing of ages is coming near too fast; what to do? Simply, do never give-up; hit hard.

The God is not listening. The God is busy creating blocks, on your ways. If I were the creator; I would have picked up the happiness. If the results were in my hands; I would have started meditation, long back. Meditation is rich; for the rich. 

Money is important. Money, certainly plays an important role in our life. If you are hungry; you cannot meditate. Basic needs of your life have to be secured; under any circumstance; effortlessly. If you are using too much effort in acquiring your basic needs; then how you will enjoy life? And the result is not in your hand.

Actually, nothing is in your hand. It can be contradictory also; life is full of contradiction. To get the solution; you have to be confused first. The more you try to accumulate money, wealth; happiness will keep avoiding you. And precisely, this is the reason that there are many rich people, they are not happy in their life.

The basic problem is money. Again, here I am contradicting myself-'Money is important; Money is the problem'. That is why I said; 'The life is full of contradiction'. Money is the problem; because you have devoted all your life in accumulating money. And you kept avoiding life. 


Life is walking along with you; side-by side-by side. You are not aware of it. Life is inside you; and you are not aware of it. You breathe all the time; and you are not aware of it. You are busy; you are focused; in accumulating money.

When you will accumulate sufficient money; then one day you will become happy in your future. You are going to be happy in your future, after accumulating money. This greed for money will destroy you; has destroyed you. I have seen very less satisfied people around me.

Meditation is here. You are here. Life is here. Past is there; which is gone. The future is imaginary; you can imagine your future. By the time you enter your future; it becomes Now. Here and Now; the rest is dead.

Life is here. Health is here. Happiness is here. Sorrow is here. Success is here, Failure is here. Stay with moments; move along with the time. Stay awakened; do not sleep on laurels. Accept life. Accept failure; keep moving with life.

Do not carry harsh feelings. Because, if you are carrying the harsh feelings, you are carrying a dead feeling. because, this harsh, sad feelings of yours were in life in your past; those moments you have crossed. Do not stand there in your past nursing vengeance; that moment is gone long back; you are here.

Life is here. Happiness is here. You are here. Stay with life; stay alive, with you; Here...

Meditation- everything is here, inside you; where are you going...

Just now, right here; your self is creating a history inside you; where are you?

You are busy; searching your security, in your future. 

If you are coming to me; I too will say- 'First of all; forget your knowledge, whatever knowledge you have acquired so-far, forget that; forget your books; out of which you have derived your knowledge. Forget your religion.  

Whatever you have learned, whatever you have known till now; you have to forget that. 

You have to forget your religion, you have to forget your church, you have to forget your temple, you have to forget your mosque; you have to forget your religious places, you have to forget your holy books, you have to forget your religion.

You have to be shattered; you have to be broken into pieces

And then, when absolutely nothing is left; except naked you. Then, in that situation of nothingness; in that situation of zero;  I shall, with a feather touch, slightly push you; so that you can dive; you can take a deep plunge inside you.

And when, you will come out, after taking a deep, very deep plunge inside you; in those moments of ecstasy, total silence, whatever happens to you; that is your knowledge; that shall be your religion, that sacred silence is your God; that will be You. 

The light of that knowledge; which will appear inside you amid that celestial silence, drink that elixir; remember drink, do not keep in your mind.    .  

You have to drink that that sacred light; which appeared inside you during that absolute silence. Let that light still inside you in every pore of you; let it spread all over you.  

If you will keep it in your mind; then again any mad man will publish it; he will make it another religious book; and then, again a new religion will take birth. And again, the same world, full of chaos; will continue. 

If you let that sacred light spread all over inside you, then from each and every pore of your body; from you, a fragrance will come out. 

And passing wind; carrying that fragrance into its embrace will be scattered all over around you; and will touch all people; standing around you, within range. 

I am asking you to drink that sacred light (knowledge); and if you do so; then, in that ecstatic moment of nothingness; there will be an explosion of silence inside you.

And when this sacred ecstasy of silence explodes inside you; become that explosion.   

And out of that explosion only one sound will be emerging out; from you; whispering into your ears continuously- "AHAM BRAHMA ASTU; I AM THE CREATOR".

Meditation, Desire, Dream, and You...

And desire won't end; till your last breath. Some claims that they have become desire-less; there is no desire left for them. They claim further that they have related themselves to God. And they do not desire anything. Do never lead a tasteless life. 

You are human; not a Robert. You must desire; you must dream. Dreamers are romantic. Fill your life with romance. Fill your life with the thrill. Meet everything; which life brings to you. Success, failure, sorrow, happiness, ups and downs; meet everything. 

Remember, your this meeting with life is not an ordinary meeting. Here you are meeting with life; here you are meeting with you.

Now it sounds dubious. It means life and you; you and you are two different entities. It is. Because in you; oneness is missing. You have developed many parts of you; inside you. You are scattered. That's why some say; they do not desire; they have become desire less.

This becoming desire less is very high point of meditation. If it is coming through meditation; this is very high. And it can certainly be misleading too. Meditation is risky also. This risk factor in meditation comes through your mind. 

Your mind is cunning; it brings confusion. For example; suppose you are sitting hours together, doing meditation, concentrating on one object. And this practice you have been doing since ages. Now you start thinking that something is happening; you are no more the same. 

Now you have achieved something; this starts appearing to you. And you start behaving like a saint. You start giving sermons; you start quoting from religious books. Now you are developing followers. And you are a religious guru. This is dangerous.

When you have practiced meditation for hours together, concentrating on one object; naturally you will feel tired, lazy, relaxed, dull. And during those hours of dullness; your mind creates delusion inside you, that you are gaining something divine. It is nothing but dull; tuneless.

Your mind is sick. You in a state of hallucination. And, during those hours of hallucination this thought comes to you that you are awakened. Actually, you're not, you have become bad to worse.

Another example; you sprinkle holy water to purify you, or the particular place. It purifies; till the water, moisture is there. After some times the water evaporates, you or the place become dry. Again, the situation, after reaching 99 points, like a game in snake and ladder, you come back to zero. And you sprinkle holy water again; and this continues.

Do not practice meditation in sleeping state of mind. You have to wake up. Understand you first. Control your mind. Do not get controlled by your mind.

Meditation is awakening; where you understand things. Where you take life in an easy way. Where you accept mundane crisis in the right way. Yes, sometimes adversity do creates serious problems in life. But then you are the one who has to handle it.

God never comes to the earth; to remove hurdles from your life. God can create hurdles; but, it is you who have to remove these hurdles. Desire is beautiful. Dream is beautiful. 

Desiring for desired life, or dreaming for a certain kind of life, along with a a proper effort; is a blessing itself. Whether getting the desired results or not is another thing. Your sincere efforts, even after receiving several failures in life, make it important.

Living life with head high, even after losing everything in life; is success; that is prayer. Not bowing down against the pressure, against the mundane stress; is certainly not an easy job to perform. 

Maintain your health. Become strong. Do not succumb to injury, under any circumstance, and keep on fighting for the justice. If you have to fight to the God; for the justice, then fight with the God. 

Fighting with the God for your desired result; fighting with the God for your dream, is Prayer. 

You must desire. You must dream. That is life. That is a fragrance. Desire is natural. The dream is natural. Remember, what is natural; is God. God is natural. Nature is natural. You are natural. So, how can you avoid; or how can you try to curb what is coming naturally to you.

 And if you do not desire; if you do not dream; how you will live a colorful life? This life is colorful. Desire; Dream, makes life beautiful; it makes life worth living for.

Meditation does not mean living a dead life. Meditation is beautiful. Meditation is full of life. Meditation is like a circle; where all angles are same. Where desire; dream, fulfillment; stops bothering you. 

And, this is the stage of Nirvana, Celibacy. But to reach this stage, to move ahead desire, to move ahead, dream; you must desire; you must dream...

God and Happiness; Meditation and Prayer- and, if God is not listening to you?

Forget God; become your own God, if God is not listening to you. Concentrate on you; concentrate on your mind. Your mind will show you the way. Your mind is very powerful; use this power of yours.

Instead of getting frustrated; or, instead of becoming vindictive; or instead of feeling jealous; use your mind. Use your energy in finding the way; how to use your mind?

Do not waste your time in pleasing God, or finding the reason; why God is not listening to you? Forget the reason of your failure; whether you are incompetent or, you are a victim of your previous life sin; and God is punishing you in this life. Forget all these rubbish; and concentrate your energy in finding the way out inside you.

There are many Gods. The beauty of God is He/She is everywhere. So, to find the key to happiness of yours; you have to search God; you have to look within.

It is your happiness; it is your life. You have to search this answer within you. frustration; feeling jealous, or feeling vindictive is natural. Do not bother much about these things; your target is to find the answer of your happiness. become your own God. And solve your problems.

It is always you; who can solve your problems. No other God will come to your rescue. Yes, to gather inner strength; practice meditation. Meditation makes you strong; from inside. Meditation opens your eyes; to look within. For physical; practice yoga. Yoga keeps you healthy.

Combination of Meditation and Yoga; keeps you alive, with a radiant complexion; under any circumstance.

Depression, anger, whatever is coming to you; allow it to come; allow them to hit you; stay unaffected. Do never try to stop anger or frustration; it is natural, they will come to you; allow them to come, do not try to stop them; you cannot, allow them to come.

Stay alert; stay awakened, accept; whatever is coming to you through meditation. Keeping yourself fit is extremely important under any circumstance. If you're healthy; if you are strong; then only you can look within. and the day you understand how to look within; and the day you start looking within; you will find your answer there; hidden within. 

God is residing inside you; continuously She/He is asking you to look within; yelling "I am here within you". 

Stop worrying. Worry causes stress; and stress creates chaos inside you. You cannot listen to God's calling amid chaos; inside you.

And the day you understand you; and the day you understand what life is; God will start listening you. Have faith in you; if you are having faith in you; you are having faith in God. And this is the key word 'faith'. 

You have been taught all through your life, that have faith in God. You must have listened to others saying that, because you are not having faith in God that is why She/He is not listening to you.

And instead of looking within, you start searching God in religious places; in holy books. and your misery continues. Simple things never attracted you; because you have been taught to set a goal first, then prepare yourself to achieve your Goal.

You do no have to achieve anything. Your preparation to achieve something is faulty. That is why you become frustrated when you do not get your desired results. And you waste your whole life in finding the reason; why God is not listening to you.

And then you create more damage to you; when you start preparing yourself; how to please God? 

You have forgotten yourself completely. You are continuously busy; in achieving something, and in pleasing God, and finding ways to happiness.

Stay here; wherever you are. There is nothing to be achieved; it is there inside you. How happiness will come to you; how God will listen to you? 

And, unless you keep you happy; happiness will not come to you; God will not listen to you. Your voice is not reaching to God; how She/He will listen to you?

How to compel God to listen to you, and, how to keep you happy- just forget God, and look within; and you will find, God is listening to you...

God, Meditation- Is Living Important?

And the day mystery of that Mysterious Smile; gets unfolded before you...

And before sending you on this earth; God whispered in your ear that- "Do not worry for anything, I am always there with you".

And to keep the mystery of the universe intact; God, before whispering in your ear, before sending you in this world, God kept this knowing with HIM/HER, that 'I am there with you'.

And God smiled; and, God sends you on this earth; and then; The Creation started moving; along with you.

And then one poet wrote somewhere- "Whatever I have got, I am satisfied with that; I have always considered that as my destiny, and every worry I have blown away in my cigarette smoke..."

Is living important? This is the question mark? The answer is questionable. Is it important to get the answer? This is the question; you ask yourself. This is very important.

Unless, there is a will, unless there is happiness; unless there is love; and, unless there is a God; is it important to live. And if it is not; then what is the meaning of Life? And if it is yes; then, how to live life? Questions and answers never ends.

How to live your life; is important. The answer, of the question 'is living important', is hidden here; how to live? This question mark has your answer; how to live?

Living is an art. First, understand you. Then understand life. Then seek the answer. Otherwise; let it sail; the way it is sailing. Whatever God has given you enjoy with that; and stay satisfied. Or, to get whatever you want from your life; get whatever you want, from God.

And gaining your desired results, or achieving your desired results; you have to understand life; you have to understand you. 

And, before sending you on this earth; God whispered in your ear that; 'I am there always with you'. 

But God had to maintain the mystery of the universe. Otherwise, SHE/HE would have created an ugly world. 

So, to justify and to keep the beauty of this universe intact, God had to make this mysterious universe. It is a believe that; there always stayed a mysterious smile on the Lord, Krishna's face. This mysterious smile is God.

This mysterious smile is Lord, Shri Krishna. so, the question is; is living important? 

And to keep the mystery of the universe intact; God, before whispering into your ear, before sending you in this world, God kept this knowing with HER/HIM, that 'I am there with you'; and God smiled; and, God sends you on this earth; and the Creation started moving; along with you.

So, though, God has always existed within you; you never realized this. Power of realizing this, that God is there within you is not known to you. And, to get the answer, that; is living important; you have to realize, that God is there within you. You have to unfold this mystery. 

And, unfolding this mystery is not possible; at least by you. So, you never got the answer, that 'is living important?' You are born inquisitive; you are always tempted to know, What is the mystery; you are curious to know; 'what is that mysterious smile on Krishna's face?'

And the day you unfold this mystery; the day you get to know the meaning of that mysterious smile; that very moment you will get your answer, 'is living important?

Now another question- how to unfold, how to know the meaning of that mysterious smile? one after another question keep coming to you; and your life goes on. 

And then, someone suggested; and then someone wrote; "whatever I have got, I am satisfied with that' I have always considered that as my destiny, and every worry I have blown away in my cigarette smoke..." 

Idiosyncrasies differ. You are satisfied; you are OK; you do not need to unfold the mystery.

But if you wish to see; if you wish to unfold the mystery; behind those mysterious smile; then you have to understand, then you have to know You; you have to understand, what life is; and, you have to know- "why Krishna is always smiling; in a mysterious way?"

To live life; to know the meaning of this life; and, to get the answer of your question, 'is living important'- Just, simply, cast a deep penetrating glance within you. And this great power, casting a glance within, comes through meditation.

Meditation opens every door for you. Techniques of meditation differ; meditation is same. all roads lead to one place. 

Now, another question, why to cast a deep glance within? 

Your life is full, of questions and answers. You keep seeking answers. And, that is the place; where mystery is hidden 'seeking', 'desire to know'.

And unless you desire, and, unless you wish to know, unless, you are inquisitive to know; you will not get the answer. Then you do not need to know. then you can blow away your worries in your cigarette smoke; and accept your life as it is; the way it is coming to you.

Your wish is God; your desire to live your life; that very desire is holding the mystery behind those mysterious smile. 

And if you wish to insist; if you wish to get your desired results; if you wish to know the answer; 'is living important'; and, finally, if you wish to live your life; the way you wish then-
  • take a bath
  • look at the morning; the way it is happening
  • the way morning light is expanding its arms to embrace the universe
  • you are within the embrace
  • feel the embrace
  • open your eyes
Cast a deep penetrating glace within; you will get your answer 'is living important?'

Now nothing is needed. This is the stage of 'Samadhi'; this the stage of accepting renouncement.

And when you are in 'Samadhi', you will come to know- "why Krishna is always smiling in a mysterious way"...

Meditation, Stress, Inspiration, and You...

And to rekindle the lost faith; and to regain the power of youth, and to smile again, and to look at the life again; you do need inspiration. You need to be inspired. You need to be encouraged.

Just look within; and get inspired. Get inspired from you. Get inspiration from nature. Nature is within you. You have limitless potentiality. Inspiration comes through you. 

STRESS is inevitable; it has to come. Everybody is stressed; sometimes it is serious; fatal.  Either broken relationship, or failure in exams, life; sometimes breaks you completely.

Sometimes, stress becomes the reason for someone’s suicide. The famous line, ‘sometimes, a time comes when your own shadow desert you'.

What to do? How to get rid of your stress? How to stay young; forever? What are techniques of meditation?

Surviving adversity, maintain the youth, stamina, the smile, is not easy; not a rocket science either.

These are the topics I share my experiences. I sincerely wish to bring smile on your face. My sincere wish is, to give you a reason to live your life in a healthy way; under any circumstance; without losing the grace.

If, my experiences inspire you; I shall think that I have lived my life. 

For youngsters; today’s youth, I wish to indicate; how to enter eternal youth through Meditation; without getting bored.

Quote from one of my articles in techniques of meditation, ‘Adversity, Destiny, Fate, and you’-

“and when adversity beckons, answer the call, gracefully; look into the eyes of the adversity, a very deep penetrating look and the day this happens to you, mark my words; you will start writing your own destiny…”.

And someone asked me yesterday, ‘What is your age?’ “I am as old as mountains; and as fresh as morning breeze”; I answered.

Yes, This is possible- Let us explore together; little more…

Meditation, Suicide, Stress, Happiness, and You...

And you are not listening to God's calling. And you are not happy.

You have everything in your life, and you are not happy. Something is troubling you. Reasons are limitless for not being happy. Every minute; every second a new reason for not being happy takes birth; and you are not happy. What to do? Somehow you have to be happy. but you do not how.

The more you try to become happy; the more sad you become. happiness comes with sadness. And, the life keeps moving; you do not move. 

You are stuck at the same place finding the reason for becoming happy. You should find the way of becoming happy; now. Otherwise, life will move ahead; it is already, continuously moving.

What to do; just move with the life. Do not stay at the same place and either keep brooding; or keep yourself occupied in finding the way of becoming happy.

You must have seen; observed, that sometimes, in a very affluent family; a very famous person, who has got everything at his disposal, commits suicide? Many celebrities; film personality, sports star; you keep listing the news that out of depression they have committed suicide. 

Now this depression, stresses in life becomes the main reason to commit suicide. You keep wondering; this person had everything in his/her life; they have achieved everything in their life; how come they commit suicide.

If you look at yourself, you will find; that you are the same; you are not less. The same tendency of not becoming happy is prevailing everywhere. You are not happy. You are not satisfied.

Mundane stress, has snatched peace with your life; it seems so. I keep saying this, that; your answer; your solution, is lying within you. 

You are, the question you are the answer. Just you have to look within. It costs you nothing. You have to just look within; and the next moment, you are happy. Your sorrow is gone. Your stress is gone. What a magic. It is miraculous.

And now, your mind starts playing its game; your mind tells you not to believe this; just looking within; it is so stupid, disbelieving. Your mind keeps telling you that looking within is stupid; it is a waste of time. And lured by your mind's instruction you start searching the ways of becoming happy. 

There are many books written on this subject; 'How to become happy and successful in your life?' and sometimes; they are considered best seller books. 

Those author claims that their book have changed many lives. And you find it more scientific. Happiness, Satisfaction, is there in some books; some of them are considered religious.

Now, not following your religion; is blasphemy; this what you have been taught. And, with your conditioned mind; you start searching peace; happiness in books. The result is zero. Aftermath; you commit suicide. And, the chapter of your life is closed. 

The problem with you is; you are running after dead things. Dead things; gives you pleasure. Life; has no meaning to you. Wind is blowing you are not concerned. Wind is touching you; you are busy thinking of someone's insult. You are busy thinking; how to take revenge? 

Your mind keeps telling you; 'unless you take revenge I am not happy'. And, mind has to be happy. your mind has to be satisfied. It is natural; you will be stressed. Now you take refuse in your religion; your God. There are many Gods; every religion has a God. And you take refuse in your God; the unknown.

You start finding peace, happiness in books. Your God is smiling at your stupidity; sitting inside you. God is very kind; very generous. God keeps shouting; yelling at you, indicating; "I am here inside you; come to me".

And you are not listening to God's calling. Because you are busy searching God; in books; in religious places. Stress,  has to come. Unhappiness, has to come. Difficulties, has to come. Sorrow has to come. To get rid of these stresses; you have to accept life first. 

You have to accept life as it is. Do not interfere; the way life is coming to you, accept it. And while doing so, while accepting life as it is; stay awakened, stay alert. and then look within. You do not have to do anything extra for this; simply, just look within.

This power of looking within comes through Meditation. Meditation techniques, how to practice meditation, differs. Practice all techniques of meditation; whatever comes your way, and choose one; the best suited to you; and start practicing meditation.

Meditation is awareness; how to look within? And, in spite of all your stresses, in spite being amid your adversity; the moment you look within; you are happy. Because, the moment you look within, you start a conversation with you; that is self-talk. 

And when you are talking to you; you are talking to the Almighty. No words are needed here; only silence is here. And, amid deep conversation with you, you will get the answer of being happy; within you...

Meditation. Happiness, Sorrow, and you...

And, to reach beyond meditation; you have to meditate. 

Life is beautiful.  The reason of its beauty is its capacity, understanding; to accept everything. 

Do not cling to your life; do not hold your life too tightly...

To become happy; you have to accept sorrow. There is no harm in staying in a sad mood; when sorrow comes. There is no harm in staying in a sad mood; sometimes. Pain has its own pleasure. Do never try get rid of your sorrow state. 

This is natural; nothing to worry about. If you seek only happiness, then you will be bored. Then happiness will not give you pleasure. Sorrow and happiness both come; accept it with a grace. The best time; the best situation to meditate is; when you are sad. Sadness is not negative.

Actually, sadness is a very sound foundation of happiness. If your life is built on a strong foundation of happiness; then, your life will produce cheerful results for you. And this is possible; if you accept your sorrow with a grace. 

Positive and negative, both always stay together. You cannot imagine of one without the support, or existence of another one. Sorrow and happiness stay together. Good and bad; stay together. Wright and wrong stay together. 

The problem starts, when you refuse to accept the negative; and you start trying to get rid of the negative in your life. There are many books written on positive thinking. It is simply thinking; it is you who have been making it either good or bad. And you start trying to get rid of your negative aspect of your life. Accept both.

Result; look at the chaos all over; around you. Now, it is natural to get rid of this kind of unhappiness; which you have created for you. And, to get rid of this kind of happiness; accept both. And, when you are accepting life as it is; this it is a state of bliss.

In the a state of bliss also sorrow; problems come; but here, you are mature, wise enough to understand your life. This understanding; comes through meditation. And, to reach beyond meditation; you have to meditate. 

Life is beautiful. The reason of its beauty is its capacity, understanding; to accept everything. 

Do not cling to your life; do not hold your life too tightly; it will suffocate. Accept the movement of your life; accept whatever your life is bringing to you; stay unaffected

And for that, staying unaffected, meditate. Meditation is the key, in understanding life; understanding you. Meditation is important. And through meditation you reach a state where you realize, for the first time that; meditation is not needed. 

Here, you understand your life; you understand yourself. And, when this understanding comes to you; you are not affected, by the mundane natural happening in your life.

Here, when you reach this state of mind where everything, good and bad, Wright and wrong is same to you; here, you are only happy. Here, only happiness prevails

Meditation, Investment, Money, Success-Failure, and You...

Success, finds its way to prove its strength; the reason behind the success. Failure, loses its face, to prove its innocence; the reason behind the failure. 

Success and failure; both happen; accept both. If you are successful; you are happy. If you are a failure; you are condemned from all angles.

If you’re a failure; certainly you have committed some silly mistakes in life; or you are not educated; or you are not intelligent, you are dumb; and definitely you are a sinner of your previous life, that is why you are a failure in this life; the Lord is punishing you for your past life sin. Accept everything. 

Success and failure, both happen; and happening have no criteria. Watching these happenings; staying a witness, and enjoying your life; indeed, is life. 

Perform your duty and enjoy your life. You can make an effort; the result is not in your hands. There are many books written; about, how to become successful in life. This very ‘how’ is the problem. you can earn money; while putting your finger on the right nerve. 

Finding the reason behind the success and failure in life; is futile. Do not waste your time in discovering the mystery; how the Universe moves? Rather, enjoy the universe; enjoy its mystery. Futile energy and wasted energy will lead you nowhere. 

And, precisely this is what you have been doing all through your life. You are busy in becoming happy. You are busy in finding the method of happiness. You are busy securing your life. 

When death will knock your door, you are not aware. And missing the beauty of the moment, you are staying in your future; finding the way, how to become happy in your life? And then there is a book on that.

Investment is another factor. Indeed, very important factor in one’s life is to learn how to invest. For this you have to start early; though it is never too late. But, at an advanced age, it becomes difficult to utilize the intelligence, what you have learned as an investor. 

This is a very important topic. Here, it is defined, you must learn investment. On this topic, Investment, many have written. All are good. But my personal is Robert Kyosaki; of ‘Rich dad, Poor dad’ fame.

Learning investment, you should start early; it takes time. At an advanced age your strategy, what you have learned as an investor, might change. Remember, it is important, ‘Time, Person, and Place’ matters. And, one has to work accordingly. 

Therefore, at an advanced stage of your life, if you are starting investment, your strategy will, and should change. Keeping in mind ‘Time, Person, and Place, theory, you should invest. Actually, your mind invests. Your mind is powerful. And it is your mind, which solves your problems. 

Money does not solve your problem; it is your mind which solves your Problems. Money is an extremely important aspect of your life. You should earn. To live your life, to meditate; ‘financial freedom’ is a must. 

And to be financially free, you must learn investment. Meditation is a miracle. Meditation is to reach. Richness gives you financial freedom. Meditation tells you, what to do when you are financially free. 

You have to be worry free; if you wish to live a happy life. If you are learning investment with controlling your life; then, nothing like this. 

This mind control method comes through meditation. And when your mind is in control; your investment strategy will creates miracle for you. 

Then, in that state of mind, when your mind comes under your control; and you are financially independent; whatever happens to you; in those moments of ecstasy, stay there, and simply drink the Nectar…

Meditation, Freedom, and You...


Applause never keeps me high; and criticism never pulls me down- I know, where I am. I shall not be defeated”. 

Freedom is important. 

You have to feel the fragrance of your life. Life is beautiful. You have not seen your life; hence, it might appear absurd to you. You need freedom to see your life. You have to be free. Free from all bondage; performing your mundane duty. Yes, it is possible. 

There are some people who renounce everything for freedom; and freedom never comes to them. In a quest of freedom; they renounce everything; even their own family; with whom he has stayed; years together. 

They renounce everything; even their own family; in the quest for freedom. They did not understand the word ‘freedom’. Result; you have hardly seen any happy monk? The monks might appear happy; but deep down within them are disturbing. Now, there is no way for them; they cannot go back to their family. And that is natural

The word ‘Renounce’ is being greatly misunderstood. Renouncement does not mean abandoning. The real meaning of the word; Renounce’ is; acceptable. Yes, here you are accepting everything, whatever is happening in your life; unconditionally.   

Here, you have to stay, Here; You do not have to go anywhere; here, you do not have to achieve anything. 

Here you are not making any difference between right and wrong; you are simply accepting everything; staying aware, alert. The word acceptance is renouncement. For freedom, You don't abandon anything; and you do not have to go to Himalaya, staying naked, practicing meditation; to become a monk.

Being in life; witnessing everything is meditation. This form of meditation; this stage of meditation takes you to a stage; where everything, good and bad, right and wrong; everything appears same to you. 

Here, applause does not take you to an unreasonable height. Here, criticism does not pull you down; here you are the same. Here you are not affected by the mundane happening in your life. Here, you are simply performing your duty; for your family. And here you are not affected by the mundane disturbance in your life.

Here, you have understood what life is? Applause never keeps me unreasonably high; and criticism never pulls me down- I know, where I am. 

I shall not be defeated”. This should be the mantra. In certain cases, abandoning life, and retiring to an unknown secluded place, in order to get freedom; might be seen as escapism. And an escapist cannot be free; an escapist cannot get freedom. 

You are born as a monk. And to realize this; you have to be aware; you have to be awakened. 

Accept your life; and its mundane happening, as it is; staying aware, alert. Meditate; only meditation can open doors for you; from where you can look within. 

Remember, only meditation can do this. Only through meditation you can reach a stage; from where you can look within

And the moment, you look within; you will find, that deep within you; are silent. And when that silence of yours touches you; in a cosmic trance, that very moment you are liberated. 

And when you are liberated, you will realize that just now, for the first time in your entire life, you met; Freedom. This is freedom from Meditation…
