Today’s (12th April, 2015) Nithya Satsang on Ishavasya Upanishad in Living Advaita Series. Paramahamsa Nithyananda gives a wake-up call to complete with the ignorance and the silly pattern to just survive in life, which is not being active and not feeling the need to know more. Upanishads know us more than we know ourselves and declare that – 'we are the pure space devoid of dirt of ignorance.' Ignorance starts when we decide to not know. Most people carry this settle-down mentality of exploring knowledge as a purpose to gain more wealth and comforts. Knowledge, Saraswati and Being Active, Durga should be for the sake of more knowledge and for being more active. This opens up multi-dimensions of knowledge in us and by itself is joy, excitement of life, and which also brings wealth, Lakshmi. Other wise we become ‘other wise’ and fall into ignorance and become dead, inactive. Isha Upanishad – Verse 8 sa paryagāc-chukram akāyam avraṇam asnāviram śuddham apāpa-viddham | kavir manīṣī paribhūḥ svayambhūr yathātathyato-arthān vyadadhāc-chāśvatībhyaḥ samābhyaḥ || 8 || Today’s Vākyārtha Sadas, topic for spiritual explorations on truth is – to start working on what Upanishad declares us as “unembodied boundaryless whole, woundless, muscleless having no incompletion with the body; Consciousness is the ever pure space devoid of the dirt of ignorance, untouched by the delusion of incompletion.” Sit and dig out and complete with the patterns which makes us experience otherwise what the Upanishad is describing as ‘me’. All other cognitions, other than what Upanishad declares as us are incompletions. If we cognize ourselves as what Upanishad declares, then we are ‘wise’, otherwise we are ‘other wise.’
