Catch the Source of Your Thoughts

almost 11 years ago


TALKS FROM MORNING SATSANG ON SEPTEMBER 17, 2012 AT TIRUVANNAMALAI ASHRAM, INDIA Bhagavad Gita (Song of God) is a timeless treatise on the essence of living enlightenment. The Gita was imparted by the enlightened Hindu incarnation Sri Krishna to the warrior-prince Arjuna over 5000 years ago. Amazingly, the spiritual wisdom and life solutions offered in the Gita are so universal and current that even today it is used as a personal transformation guide. In today's talk on Bhagavad Gita, chapter 6, verse 18, Paramahamsa Nithyananda (Swamiji) gives us a technique to identify our prarabdha karma. Prarabdha is the portion of our karma which we chose to balance during this lifetime. Nithyananda instructs us to meditate on the gap between each of our thoughts. Within that gap lies the emotion which generated the thought. When we identify the emotion, we can fulfill the karma associated with it. For example, if we long for some experience, is the longing generated by desire, fear, or the wish to help others? Understanding what motivates us makes it possible to act accordingly: renounce desire, transcend fear, or fulfill our wish to help humanity. TRANSCRIPTIONS:- CATCH THE SOURCE OF YOUR THOUGHTS! Bhagavad Gita Chapter 6, verse 18 17 Sep 2012 yadaa viniyatam cittam aatmanye-vaava-tishtate | nisspruhas-sarva-kaamebhyaha yukta ityuch-yate tadaa || When one has restrained the thought patterns and is free from the longing for all desires and remains absorbed in oneself, then he is experiencing the higher consciousness. I tell you, every human being has to spend little time in experiencing higher consciousness especially before entering into the life, before 21. Even incarnations, see the life of Parasurama, see the life of Sri Krishna, see the life of Rama, Rama goes to Vashishta and learns Yogavaashishtam. Parasurama goes to Dattaatreya and learns the science of enlightenment. Krishna goes to Shandipa, learns the science of enlightenment. We have a unfortunate misunderstanding and fear, if our kids go to gurukkul and learn the science of enlightenment, they may just become sanyasis. Move out of life. No. Krishna did not move out of life. Rama did not move out of life. Parasurama did not move out of life. Parasurama was killing people left and right. Rama was ruling the country and what all Krishna did you know. None of them became sanyasis. Gurukkul is not a place where you are asked to move out of life. You are sharpened, prepared to move into the life. To catch your prarabdha. Understand this small story: One person had his computer, loaded various softwares, photoshop, windows, so many. He locked his house and went away for a trip, came back after two years. Unfortunately he forgot what all software he has in his computer. He got his computer back but he doesn't know what all softwares he has downloaded. He is trying to do different activities which he can't do the software which he has already downloaded. If he is trying to do a different activity other than the softwares available, he will never be successful. He can break his head and break his computer, break his keyboard, break his hard disk, break his mother board, break his computer table, break the house itself, but he can't be successful. You need to know, he needs to remember the softwares available in his computer. Only then he can do whatever activities he wants to. Only then he can even plan to download the softwares which does not have. I tell you, your body is your computer. Your long trip is your death and new birth. Your softwares are prarabdha. If you don't know your prarabdha you can neither achieve nor plan for your further future. You may be trying so many things. Nothing, nothing works out. I tell you, without the knowledge of prarabdha anything you try will never work out, sometimes it may work out like an accident not as a fulfillment. So, learning the science of the softwares available and learning to download the softwares from the internet, learning to upgrade yourself is what is usually done in gurukkuls. When you come back from the long trip, first your guru does is making you understand your prarabdha, the softwares which already exists in your computer. Then teaching you the science of downloading new softwares required to fulfill your life. If you want to do something new, the next upgrading your old softwares and finally supporting you to fulfill your prarabdha. Just like Buddhism, in Buddhism it is mandatory every human being goes through science of enlightenment before he enters regular life. Same way, every child should go through the science of enlightenment in Hinduism also before he enters the regular life. We need gurukkuls in every village. We need gurukkuls in every city. We need gurukkuls in every taluk teaching the science of enlightenment. Teaching the truths of enlightenment. When one has restrained the thought patterns and is free from the longing for all the desires
