Only Ghosts Say No to Life

February 19, 2015


February 19, 2015 Today’s (19th February, 2015) Morning Satsang continues with the Upanishads Series - Living Advaita. Isha Upanishad–Verse 3 begins: asuryā nāme te lokā andhena tamasā’vṛtāḥ | tāṁs te pretyābhigacchanti ye ke cātma-hano janāḥ || 3 || In this profound delivery of the Isha Upanishad, Paramahamsa Nithyananda describes the dangers of continuously saying “No” to life. Saying “No” to life kills our atman or soul! We can combat negative qualities and patterns that drag us down, making our lives hell, by wielding the weapon of patience. Having tremendous patience with ourselves and others, moves us away from anger and violence into the space of Living, saying “Yes” to life. TRANSCRIPTS:- I will enter into the third verse of Ishavasya Upanishad. Please chant along with me: असुर्या नाम ते लोका अन्धेन तमसाऽऽवृताः । ताँस्ते प्रेत्याभिगच्छन्ति ये के चात्महनो जनाः ॥ Asurya naama they lokaa andhena thamasaavruthaah | Thaamsthey prethyabhigachchanthi ye ke chaathmahano janaah || The translation: ‘The various abodes of the Asuras, the lower level existence, are in the form of inferior or lower grade worlds, which are like hells coerced by darkness, representing all the negative qualities, collectively called “thamas”. Those who literally kill the Athma become ghosts who inhabit such horrible abodes, and, this, they continue to do repeatedly.’ Listen! People who say “YES” to life, what will happen to them was described in the last verses. Now, people who say “NO” to life, what will happen to them is getting described. Listen! Whenever you entertain “NO” to life, first, always, “NO” is entertained as frustration. Then it evolves as anger, violence, self-doubt, self-hatred, self-denial; all this is various expressions. But, it starts as frustration. So, I tell you, one of the important qualities to say “YES” to life is tremendous patience. Listen! Tremendous patience! YES! YES! YES! Every time YES! After every time, YES! Listen! Every time, when what you want does not happen, don’t say “NO”; end in “YES”. I am not saying accept. No! I will give you an example: If something does not happen the way I want in our Sangha, I don’t accept and keep quiet. But I don’t allow frustration. I will do whatever needs to be done, and, end, I will say, ‘Alright! Yes!’ Next, I will be again prepared with all the patience to move further, to do things further. My disciples’ ignorance never made me reduce my plans, understand? The people with whom you are living – first you, and everyone else around you – their ignorance or inability should not give you frustration, should not make you say “NO” to you. Listen! The moment you accept “NO, the moment you say “NO” to expansion, you have started saying “NO” to you! असुर्या नाम ते लोका अन्धेन तमसाऽऽवृताः । ताँस्ते प्रेत्याभिगच्छन्ति ये के चात्महनो जनाः ॥ Asurya naama they lokaa andhena thamasaavruthaah | Thaagumsthey prethyabhigachchanthi ye ke chaathmahano janaah || The second line of the verse should not be chanted as “Thaasthey” (तास्ते). That is “paatta bhedha”. I heard, learnt, I heard from my acharyas as “Thaagumsthey”. Even though the verse says just “Thaasthey” (तास्ते). “Thaagumsthey”. Half “gum”. Silent “gum”. Thaagumsthey prethyabhigachchanthi ye ke chaathmahano janaah. Listen! Saying “NO” to you is the worst sin. I have given you one example that “inability and ignorance of you and the people living around you cannot reduce your creativity or plans to express your peak possibility”. This is one definition. And multiple, I can give you multiple explanations, multiple understandings from various fronts. Like, for example, your body gives pain at some parts of your body – headache or stomach pain. Don’t shrink. When that headache comes, stomach-ache comes, don’t add psychological suffering to it – ‘Oh, if this same continues, what will happen? I am very young.
