TALKS FROM MORNING SATSANG ON SEPTEMBER 9, 2012 IN KODAIKANAL, INDIA
In in the present day’s morning satsang, Paramahamsa Nithyananda (Swamiji) addresses Hinduism’s must return to its unique spirituality. The basic apply of Upanishad, wherein devotees sit within the presence of a Grasp and combine the rules of meditation, is not transmitted as a central spiritual aspect amongst Hindus. Ideally, kids study this apply from their mother and father at an early age and carry the reverence they purchase into maturity. Nithyananda factors out that whereas non-Hindus are sometimes forbidden to worship in Hindu temples, Hindus themselves might not be worshipping with the fitting non secular understanding. He recommends that Hindus return to the Vedic roots of their spirituality.
It’s so unlucky that entire Hinduism misplaced this Upanishad. Buddhism remains to be capable of create increasingly enlightened beings simply because they held on to that one reality “Zazen”. Zazen means simply sitting. It’s so unlucky even the monks within the South Indian Temples are standing and doing Pooja. So this concept of sitting is totally misplaced. Above the Mahakal, when you see all temples shall be sitting and doing Pooja. Beneath Mahakal, all shall be standing and doing Pooja. It’s unlucky. It’s possible you’ll suppose “What’s there in sitting”. You do not know. I let you know. You do not know — energy of sitting. By sitting, sitting, you’ll discover ways to be sitting with aloneness “Rahasistitaha, Aatmanam rahasistitaha”. That’s the reason, in Hindu custom, the very best apply is known as Upanishad. The very best preaching is known as Upanishad. Even the place the place the instructing is transmitted is known as seat. Peeta. Perceive. A lot of significance was given to sitting. I let you know. In case you study sitting, sitting, sitting, you’ll simply pick-up this sitting with your self. The Upanishad.
If I’ve my very own method, I’ll actually inform all our Ashrams and facilities, have furnishings and chairs just for the individuals who can’t sit on the ground. Elders or who’re sick or handicapped.
Even to all our devotees, I give this as a non secular instruction. Solely when you find yourself not feeling effectively, when you’ll be able to’t sit on the ground, use furnishings. In any other case even in the home have furnishings for the guests. However once you all guys sit, all you guys sit on the ground. You do not know, this behavior of sitting on the ground will slowly aid you to take a seat with your self. Upanishad.
So in 11 days you’ll be able to catch that Upanishad samyama. In Buddhism they’ve a really stunning method. They are going to simply gaze on the wall, dealing with the wall they are going to sit and gaze. No ideas allowed. Simply sit.
Bodhi dharma sat in Upanishad for 12 years gazing the wall. Now in any case, all you guys, Niraharis, chances are you’ll want to maneuver your head away from the wall could also be three occasions a day for juice.
I actually needed Hinduism to get again to that reality of Upanishad.
It’s so unhappy after I went to Nepal this time, in Katmandu I noticed 82 % Hindu inhabitants, solely 5 % budhist inhabitants however go in any avenue, you’ll find 10 buddhist monks going round. You’ll not discover a single Hindu monk. It’s so unhappy. You guys misplaced all of the non secular wealth, you inherited. Why do you suppose your subsequent era will not be changing into monks. As a result of it was by no means based mostly on the non secular inspiration. You may see these Buddhist monks extremely educated, cultured engaged on the non secular truths. The few hindu monks you will notice that is additionally only a few. One or two. Outdated beggars. In Katmandu, Pasupathinath temple asking for few penny. That is it. I take a vow within the title of Maha Kala and Maha Kali. Simply by the akashic readings, inspiring and initiating I’ll create atleast 100 thousand sadhus, sanyasis. I imply children, celibates dwelling enlightenment and spreading enlightenment. Giving life to the vedic custom. It’s actually unlucky that these nice non secular heritage. In Zen monasteries, Buddhist monasteries, you’ll be able to see 1000’s of monks sitting in Zazen for a complete day.
Hats off to ISKON motion for making ajapa japa as a life model. They atleast introduced that again.
However one of many biggest heritage of Hinduism, vedic custom the Upanishad. Neither gurus discuss it nor disciples apply. Most people don’t even have faith that Upanishad is feasible of their life. In Hindiusm if you’re a monk, you’ll be able to’t even survive until you do some social service. I’m not towards social service. Simply now I blessed the individuals who gave the cash. I’m going to ship this and going to do social service. However that ought to not exchange our mystical explorations. Sadly, in Hinduism the paranormal exploring has been changed by operating faculties, faculties and hospitals.
Every individual impressed about enlightenment is a diamond. His time and vitality ought to be directed in direction of attaining the enlightenment and radiating the extraordinary experiences and powers of enlightenment.
