Dissolve into Devotion - Nithyananda Morning Satsang (07 Nov 2010) Message

November 15, 2010


This morning's message began Paramahamsa Nithyananda's series on the sacred sentiments. While doing research on the topic of devotion, Bhakti, Paramahamsa Nithyananda was surprised that no studies existed in the West on the concept of Bhakti. Lots had been done on the power of prayer, and its positive effect on illnesses, but no interest was shown about Devotion. Paramahamsa Nithyananda was very clear; these two concepts are completely different. Prayer has its roots in the Western religious concept that there is one almighty God that created the universe. In the Vedic tradition, God and the universe are not separate. The whole consciousness decided to expand and enjoy itself, and so it became many. The Ganges civilization knew all is consciousness, and to celebrate the very existence of consciousness. The reason the Siddha style of healing is so effective is that it treats every cell and molecule in the body as an independent intelligence. The understanding of God and the Universe is the distinction between devotion and prayer. Bhakti flowers from the centre of the synchronicity of knowing we are one with the source. When we understand the correct relationship between God, nature, human society, and ourselves, that we are all one, sacred sentiment occurs. When we don't understand the relationship of these four, only sentiment, flawed emotion, occurs. People who feel there is a God and a Heaven will feel cheated when they try to go there after death. Understand the Origin enjoys itself out of its own independent intelligence. When this right understanding hits you, you will feel a great bubbling up in your heart and a huge load vanishes from your system. That feeling is Bhakti, devotion. The basis for Bhakti is non-suffering. If you are suffering, get rid of it, unclutch from it. No devotion can happen with suffering. From the base of non-suffering, anything emotion that wells up in you is sacred sentiment. Tomorrow, Paramahamsa Nithyananda will continue with his discourse on sacred sentiment.
