Today, Nithyananda Brahmotsavam fourth day!  All the Saptha Moorthis are giving darshan today, the Thiru Kailasa Darshanam, the darshan of Kailasa.  Ganesha, Karthikeya, Surya, and Swamiji’s moorthi, and Nithyanandeshwara, Nithyanandeshwari and Nithyananda, and Meenakshi, and Venkateshwara with Sridevi and Bhudevi, all the Saptha Moorthis with “Anga Aabharana”, devathas, are giving Thiru Kailasa Darshanam, darshan as they are in Kailasa.


In Vedic Tradition, six deities are worshipped as the direct representation of the Cosmos: Ganesha, Subramanya, Surya, Shiva, Devi, and Vishnu.  And Guru, your own Guru.  So, these are the seven major Sampradhayas in Vedic Tradition.  Six Sampradhayas worshipping the six gods, and the seventh Sampradhaya worshipping your own Guru.  These six Sampradhayas worshipping six gods is “Shanmatha”, is called “Shanmatha”.  The Vedic Tradition is the totality of this Shanmatha.  All the six gods are worshipped as the representation of the Supreme Brahman, the Cosmos.


See, like Mahadeva is worshipped as the embodiment of all the gods and goddesses, Ganesha is worshipped as the embodiment of all gods and goddesses.  The Ganesha Purana, Vinayaka Purana declares it is Ganesha who created Brahma, Vishnu, Rudra; and he has Brahmanda, the whole Cosmos, is in his belly.  Same way, Subramanya Purana declares him (Subramanya) as superior.  And Devi Bhagawatham declares Devi as superior.  Vaishnava scriptures declare Vishnu as superior.  Same way, Guru Gita declares Guru as superior.  And Surya Purana, there are descriptions about Surya; and some parts of the Brahmanda Purana describe Surya as the source of everything.  Totally, these six gods and your own Guru, all the seven are worshipped as supreme representations, supreme representations of the Cosmos.  All the seven are worshipped as the “Poorna Brahman” in Vedic Tradition.  If you are a follower of any of these seven traditions, you belong to Vedic Tradition, you are a Hindu.  This wide variety provides choice, please understand.  As I said, choice is not because of confusion, but because of intelligence, because of possibilities, looking at the possibilities.


Let us enter into today’s satsangh, Upanishads.


UPANISHADS!  Still I feel I have not introduced eighty percent of what I wanted to say about Upanishads.  Today I am going to look at Upanishads from various Master’s views – eastern and western.  Even the modern-day teachers, professors, translators, historians, they were all shocked to see Upanishads.  Some accepted the greatness and praised.  Some tried to distort so that the glory is reduced.  Some tried to say these are all written very recently, very recently, copying the ideas from western spiritual books.  No, some tried to say that!  So, when something extraordinary, mind-blowing is in front of you, either mind surrenders, bows down to its glory and enjoys its presence and dissolves into it, or tries to deny its existence, to assert.....tries to deny its existence, to assert. 


So, understand, Upanishads are too big!  Just by reading and understanding, it refines the sacred understandings, sacred sentiments, sacredness of your existence.  Please understand, there are some books which can refine your understanding.  There are some books which can refine your sacred sentiments.  But, only the Upanishads can refine your understanding, sentiments, and your sacred beingness.  “Beingness” means, experiencing liberation as your existence of the future, present and past.  Liberation as your future, present and past.  Liberation as your future, present and past.


Refining your being, please understand, the understanding which becomes part of your being, which stays in your being as cognition, which is a powerful existential and experiential truth....  I think, so many words I am putting.  I will try to convey it in very simple words, straightforward words.  Listen!  


See, for example, if you have strong belief inside you about you that you are a blessed being, god is supporting you and he is constantly taking care of you, you can pray to him and he supports you, that is one of the very fine, subtle, sacred experiences you having about you.  And same way, if you have that feeling-connection, ‘Whenever I call upon my god or guru, immediately he responds to me, he is available to me,’, if you have that as part of you.....  Please listen, these are all not “faith”.  No!  Not “belief”.  No!  No!  These are more solid, more real than the so-called reality you are perceiving around you.  If you feel the moment you pray, you call your Ishta or guru, ishta devatha or guru, he immediately responds, he is available to you, that is the most subtle, sacred sentiment.  And, ‘Ultimately, I know I am going to become enlightened and relax into the Cosmos.  No question of suffering in the birth and death cycle.’  Sometimes people get this very strongly into them.  It is not “faith”, be very clear. 


“Faith” is – I am defining – “Faith” is “that which comes up and goes down along with the sun-moon cycle”.  Anything which comes up and down with the sun-moon cycle is “Faith”.  But there are some things in you which the sun-moon cycle cannot change.  See, if in the morning you feel, ‘Yes, yes, yes, everything is great!’, and, in the night you feel, ‘No, no, no.......’, then it is “Faith”.  During Poornima, Full Moon time, you feel everything is going right; then, during Amavasya (New Moon) time, you feel, ‘No, no, no.....I don’t know....what is happening?’; then it is “Faith”.  That which comes and goes with the sun-moon cycle is “Faith”.  But, sometimes, beyond this coming and going, and faith, certain understandings become part of your bio-memory; it is just there forever, through thick and thin.  Those things only I am saying, subtle, sacred sentiments, understandings, and the truth of the being. 


Listen!  Sacred sentiment, truth of the being, and the sacred understandings, do not change based on the sun and moon coming and going.  If you have the understanding intellectually, ‘Anyhow all this is going to dissolve into from where it came, that’s all.  Whether I had two-thousand acres when it is all dissolving, or one-thousand acres when it is all dissolving, or homeless when it is all going to dissolve, then what matters?’  If this understanding does not change by the sun and the moon coming and going, it is called “Jnana” – “Sacred Knowledge”. 


Same way, ‘How much ever I have SDHD about me, Self-Doubt, Self-Hatred, Self-Denial about me, the source from which I happened cannot have denial towards me.  So, he is the source.  Today or tomorrow I have to dissolve in him only.  He only has to protect me, dissolve myself into him.  So, he is the Ultimate.’  If this understanding happens in you, if this feeling-connection happens in you which does not change by the sun and the moon coming and going, I call this as “Sacred Sentiment”, “Bhakthi”. 


And, Being: ‘Whether I feel now bound or liberated, ultimately I can never be bound, because I am the reflection of the Cosmos.  Neither Cosmos nor reflection can be bound.  Not only you cannot bind the sun, even the sun’s reflection in the water can you bind it?  In the mirror can you bind it?  You can bind the mirror, you can bind the water into the pot, but not the reflection.’  If you have this understanding in your very core being which does not come and go with the sun and the moon, up and down, I call this “Vijnana”, “Cognition”, “Sacred Cognition”, “Cosmic Cognition”. 


Some books can awaken Jnana in you; some books can awaken Bhakthi in you; but only the Upanishads can awaken Jnana-Bhakthi-Vijnana, all the three in you.  Upanishads, only Upanishads are capable of all the three in you.  Only Upanishads are capable of awakening all the three in you completely. 


As I said, it is a gift of Ganga Matha and Saraswathi Matha (the rivers Ganga and Saraswathi).  Between Saraswathi and Ganga, in that valley, the civilization happened, the civilization which does not need to wage wars, defend, does not have enmity or possessiveness, which never bothered about the outer world or its comforts.  I don’t want to say our ancestors are ignorant about the outer world.  No!  They didn’t bother!  That great civilization which gave the tremendous peace naturally by fulfilling all the needs, in that space, in that space, Upanishads have happened.  Upanishads have happened in that space.


Understand, the most important, ultimate wealth you can accumulate in your life, important, ultimate wealth you can accumulate in your life is Sacred Knowledge, Sacred Sentiment, Sacred Cognition, Jnana – Sacred Knowledge, Bhakthi – Sacred Sentiment, Vijnana – Sacred Cognition.  Jnana, Bhakthi, Vijnana.  Understand, the cognition you need to have to experience Upanishads is just “openness”, nothing else.  The Jnana, Bhakthi, Vijnana, all the three can happen in you just by receiving it openly.  That’s all!  That’s all!  That’s all!


With this I will move to the next segment of the morning satsangh.


I bless you all!  Let you all radiate with Integrity, Authenticity, Responsibility, Enriching, and Causing Living Advaitha, the eternal bliss, Nithyananda!  Thank you!  Be blissful!
