UPANISHADS!  I will continue to expand on the Shanthi Mantra.  So, let us start with the Shanthi Mantra.


ॐ पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदम् पूर्णात् पूर्णमुदच्यते |

पूर्णस्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते ||

|| ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ||


Om Poornamadhah Poornamidham Poornaath Poornam Udhachyathey |

Poornasya Poornamaadhaaya Poornamevaavasishyathey ||

|| Om Shanthi Shanthi Shanthih ||


“Completion, this is Completion, that is Completion.  If this is removed from that, both remain, continue as Completion.  When the Completion merges into Completion, Completion alone remains.  If the Completion is removed or perceived to be removed from Completion, again Completion alone remains as Completion.”


Vivekananda says, ‘Forget about all you know as “religion”.  Go back to Upanishads, the Source.  Drink from the Source which will strengthen you.  Listen!  Drink from the Source which will strengthen you.’


Many times, the “aachaara” – the every-day practices you observe – get the status of religion, and, sometimes, the “aachaara” starts even contradicting the main core truth of religion and you continue to practice the “aachaara”, leaving the religion!  It is like.....they say a story:


In one mutt (Matha - monastery), they had a cat.  The cat used to jump around the Sannidhanam (Head of the Matha) when he does puja.  He (the cat) will create a big ruckus. 


So, the Sannidham has said, ‘Hey, first tie the cat before I start the puja, so that I don’t have disturbance.’


They tied the cat, and the Sannidhanam did the puja peacefully.


On the second day, again, they tied the cat, and he (the Sannidhanam) did the puja.


Third day, again, they tied the cat, and he (the Sannidhanam) did the puja.


After some time it became a habit that before the Sannidham starts the puja, you tie the cat, so that he (the Sannidhanam) starts the puja.


One day, the cat died, and they don’t know what to do: Without the cat, how to start the puja?  And they started searching around here and there for a cat.  ‘Hey, we have to tie the cat; only then the puja can start!’


Finally, that day the Sannidhanam didn’t do the puja because the cat was not there!


See, the “aacharas”, unfortunately, get into the state of religion, when the reason, context, is lost in course of time.  There are thousands of stories where the “aachaara” becomes, “anushtaana” becomes religion. 


See, “aachaara” and “anushtaana” is a way of living religion only if you know the context of the “aachaara” and the “anushtaana”.  Once in a while, you have to review yourself all the “aachaara” and “anushtaana” you are doing: Are you in the right context and doing it?  Based on this, you can measure.  The scale: Are you in the right context?  How to align yourself to the right context?  The scale to align you to the right context is Upanishads!  Again and again and again, go back to the Source, the Upanishads.  Upanishads will give you the clarity, setting the right context for the “aachaara” and “anushtaana” you are following, and making you live, making you live the context in your every-day life.


See, “aachaara” and “anushtana” means: “habits” and “lifestyle”; the every-day habits and lifestyle you are supposed to follow.  Neither you should give up the “aachaara” and “anushtaanas”, nor you should be without knowing the context.  You should do it knowing the context.  Doing it by knowing the context!  People who give up, lose spiritual strength.  And, people who don’t know the context, become superstitious.  If you give up “aachaara” and “anushtaana”, you will lose spiritual strength.  If you don’t know the context and continue to do, you will become superstitious.  So, for both diseases – who don’t know the life, and who are living a superstitious life – for both, the greatest medicine is Upanishads.


It is like extracting the gold out of mud.  See, the gold ore, they collect the gold ore, process it, boil it, acid-wash it; finally the gold comes out.  Did the gold come from somewhere out of nowhere?  No!  It came only from itself.  But was the gold there in the beginning?  No!  It came only from itself.  Exactly like the gold from the gold ore, an enlightened being out of you, it is there inside you!  Only if it is there it can come out.  Otherwise it can’t come out.  Whatever needs to be added in you for you to become an enlightened being is “Completion”.  Whatever needs to be removed from you is the idea you have incompletion.  There is no incompletion itself.  If something is there, it will continue to be there.  Listen!  If something is there, it will continue to be there.  From the gold ore, if all the dirt can be removed, and gold finally remains, how can you say there was a time this dirt was part of the gold?  Anything which can be removed, how can you say it was part of it?  You were insensitive to see both of them separate in the beginning.  Now they have become separated to the level you are able to sense, that’s all!  Listen!  If the dirt is inside the gold, can it be separated?  No!  Because it was never inside, it can be separated.  If the incompletions are part of your programming, it can never be separated.  Because it is already out of you, it can be taken out.  Understand, now they are out of you, but not to the level you can sense it.  Once they are out of you to the level you can sense it, you declare:


पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदम् पूर्णात् पूर्णमुदच्यते |

पूर्णस्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते ||


Poornamadhah Poornamidham Poornaath Poornam Udhachyathey |

Poornasya Poornamaadhaaya Poornamevaavasishyathey ||


Once you perceive you the way your guru perceives you, you will declare you are an enlightened being, understand?  When I see you again and again, I perceive you are separate, your incompletions are separate.  That is why I attack your incompletions.  But you feel your incompletions are very much part of you, and you feel I am attacking you!  What to do?  It can never be part of you!  Your incompletions can never be part of you!  If it is, it can never be separated.  If it can be separated, it can never be part of you.  Understand, only gold can come out of gold.  Anything else which comes out of gold was never part of gold.


In Vedic Tradition, all the human possibilities are used to intranalyze and internalize the spiritual truths.  One of the biggest possibilities of human-beings is a deep in-depth analysis.  When you do an in-depth analysis, beyond your logic your being opens up.  That is why “vaadha-prathivaadha” – debates – are a powerful method to intranalyze and internalize the Vedic truths.  When I was teaching Brahmasutra, I encouraged devotees to have “vaadha-prathivaadha”.  Now, again, today I am initiating all of you.  Start the groups everywhere – in YouTube, Facebook, Twitter – with the title “Upanishads Debates”, with the hash tag “#UpanishadsDebates”.  Start the “vaadha-prathivaadha”. 


I tell you, by doing “vaadha-prathivaadha” with Buddhists, Shankara established his ultimate Advaithic experience into the Buddhists; but, listen, from Buddhism, more than ninety percent he digested and assimilated!  So, end of the day, the Buddhists and Shankara, both were enriched.  Same way, Buddhists, Nagarjuna, he, by doing debate with the disciples and followers of Shankara, he established his ultimate experience no doubt; but he picked up so many convincing points from the Vedic Tradition.  I tell you, in debate, ultimately nobody wins, nobody loses; both get enriched! 


Let us start the “vaadha-prathivaadha”, intranalyzing, internalizing process of Vedic Tradition.


“Fullness, Completion, comes from Completion, continues to remain as Completion.  From which it came, and which came out, both continue to remain as Completion.  And, when it goes back, Completion remains as Completion.  If this is the case, can Completion come out of Completion?  If it is not, then why do we perceive incompletion?”


This is the question I am giving for debate.  Debate! 


When you debate, you will intranalyze, you will internalize, you will understand, you will look in, you will see the possibilities. 


Debating with the right person is a joy.  That is why Vyasa comes down to taste debate with Shankara.  He comes down to taste debating with Shankara.  And, it goes on and on and on, till one disciple understands ‘Who is debating whom?’, and falls at the feet of both, and chants:


शंकरं शंकराचार्यं केशवं बादरायणम् ।


Shankaram Shankaraachaaryam Keshavam Baadharaayanam |


“Shankara, Mahadeva, is sitting here as Shankaracharya.  Keshava, Vishnu, is sitting here as Badharayana (Vyasa).”


How is the debate going to end?  Who is going to win?  Who can lose?


Then, both of them reveal their identity to each other and end the debate.


So, we also will have two teams – “Shankara” team and “Vyasa” team.  Start debating!


Understand, again and again and again, the truth needs to be relived, remembered, rejoiced, radiated!  The truth needs to be relived, remembered, rejoiced, radiated!  Remember, relive, rejoice, radiate!


शंकरं शंकराचार्यं केशवं बादरायणम् ।

सूत्र-भाष्यकृतौ वन्दे भगवन्तौ पुन: पुन: ॥


Shankaram Shankaraachaaryam Keshavam Baadharaayanam |

Sutra-bhaashya Krithau Vandhey Bhagavanthau Punah Punah ||


“One does the Sutra, one does the Bhashya”


Listen!  End of the day, this question – “Can Completion come out of Completion?  Is there anything called “incompletion”?  If it is not there, why are we perceiving it?  And what is the truth about the Completion coming out of Completion?” – all these questions do not have answer.  When you dig, dig, dig, dig, dig these questions, you will only have EXPERIENCE!


So, now, today, launching this great debate, “vaadha-prathivaadha”, “prashna-utthara”, question-answer and debate, I am opening myself, I am making myself available.  You can call in now for a direct debate with me.  From anywhere around the world, you can call in now the number on your screen.  Whether you are watching Sadhna TV, Nithyananda TV, or two-way video-conferencing, you can call 080 2727 9999 to have a direct debate with me, or question-answer with me, on this subject.  But restrict yourself only to this subject which we are discussing today. 


(First question from a caller from Canada):


Swamiji: Nithyanandam!  Nithyananda here!


Caller: Nithyanandam, Swamiji!  This is Ma xxxxxxxx from Vancouver.


Swamiji: Yes, go ahead.  You have a question or you want to debate?


Caller: I have a question.  I am sure it won’t go into debate.  I cannot go into debate.....


Swamiji: HAHAHAHAHA!  Okay!  HAHAHAHAHA!  Alright!  Go ahead!  Go ahead!  Please come up with your question.


Caller: Yah!  So, what I understood from the satsangh is that our incompletions are like the dust which is there in the ore of gold, and it is separate from the gold itself, it is not gold.  But why does our mind attract that dust and we perceive it as part of us or part of that gold?


Swamiji: See, actually I have to ask this question to you!  My mind is not perceiving, you understand?  My mind is not perceiving the dust as part of gold.  So, I am clear about it.  I have to ask YOU, why are you perceiving dust as gold?  You please tell me.  Because, this is YOUR experience!  See, I am answering from my experience: I don’t perceive dust as gold.  Now YOU are only perceiving dust as gold.  Now YOU only have to answer from your experience zone – ‘How do I perceive dust as gold?’


Caller: I feel I have incompletions where actually they are not part of me.  I know they are not part of me.


Swamiji:  You think they are part of you?


Caller:  No.  But I feel I have them.  I don’t know why, although I know they are not part of me, and I can complete and end it.  But, still, every time, I feel I have got to complete.  That means, I have incompletions.


Swamiji:  So, what I am saying is, directly you are not able to come to the conclusion you are having incompletion.  Only with the indirect symptoms you are able to come to the conclusion you have incompletions.  Am I right?


Caller:  Correct!  Correct, Swamiji.  


Swamiji:  Listen!  Listen!  Listen!  See, have you seen the psychiatric drugs and other drugs advertisement in your TV channels in Canada?


Caller: Yes, correct Swamiji. 


Swamiji:  There will be some twenty-five diagnostic lines:  “If you have mild laziness and little tiredness associated with or without your back pain and knee pain, and if you have a slight headache at the age of forty-five, or before and after, if you have a little bone weakness and bone pain before sixty-five or after sixty-five, or around sixty-five, please consult your doctor.  You may be heading towards osteoporosis”.  If you see this advertisement, who do you think will be very sure that they don’t have, or they are approaching towards osteoporosis? 


Caller:  Correct!  It is just a perception.


Swamiji:  Listen!  Listen!  How the “fuzzy diagnostic methods” are taught to you for you to believe you have a disease so that you can come to the doctor for medicine and you can be exploited, society has taught you the “fuzzy diagnostic method” to make you believe you have incompletions, so that you can be divided to pieces and exploited.  So, the straightforward, please listen, the straightforward, single line answer: Do you know your incompletions are separate from you and you can end it?


Caller: Yes, I do.


Swamiji: Then, stop with it!  Stop with it!  This is like a straightforward ‘I have a knee pain.  Let me get the herb or the oil and apply it on the knee pain.’  Straightforward!  Over!  But, now, unfortunately, when you are having knee pain, you are seeing that advertisement – “a middle-aged lady, unable to walk slowly.....”, and the line goes on, “If you have a knee pain before forty-five, or after forty-five, or around forty-five, and you have a little tiredness, laziness, unsaid restlessness in the evening or before evening, or around the time you go to bed, and if you have the craving and feeling like eating and drinking whenever you find time and you are not able to control or you think you are not able to control, please approach your family doctor.  You may be heading towards osteoporosis!”  If you see this advertisement, what will you do?


Caller: Go and buy the drug or go to the doctor.


Swamiji:  Listen!  Your question has two parts: 


First part, you said, ‘I know my incompletions are separate from me.  I can end them by Completion.’  That statement is equivalent to, ‘I have knee pain.  I will get the oil, pain balm, apply it.  Over!’ 


But the second statement you made:  ‘I must be having incompletions because this, this, this, this, are all there.’  Can you repeat the second statement?


Caller: I feel, at the end of the day, I have incompletions and I have to complete with them.


Swamiji:  Yes.  So, who gave you that “fuzzy diagnostic technology”?


Caller: My mind.  It is just my perceptions and mind.


Swamiji:  And your friends, family, and relatives, who don’t want to see you happy, who have a vested interest in keeping you in low profile.  So, why do you want to accept their “fuzzy diagnostic methods” and diagnose, confirm that you have incompletion so that they can exploit you with their medications?  Each one will give you solution for incompletion.  Your uncle, the moment he makes you feel you are incomplete, he will tell, ‘Serve me and take care of me.  I will stand by you and protect you from all incompletions.’  The next guy, he will come and tell you, ‘Marry me and live with me.  I will protect you from all incompletion.’ 


Husband is a person who stands by you during all the troubles and trials and problems of life which will not be there if he is not there in your life! 




Swamiji: I am telling you Ma, every person who gives you the “fuzzy diagnostic method” and convinces you that you have incompletions, has something to gain by you believing you have incompletions. 


Now, you are my disciple.  Am I right?


Caller: Yes, Swamiji.


Swamiji:  So, I am one of the important parts of life in you.  Am I right?


Caller: You are my LIFE, Swamiji!


Swamiji:  Yes.  Then, come on!  Listen to me!  Listen to me!  Now Kaalabhairava is my life, understand.  Just like I am your life, Mahadeva, Kaalabhairava is my life, and keeping him as a witness I am declaring with all my integrity – you know the words I utter come true.  You can look into your own life or other disciples’ life, whatever – with all the grace of Mahadeva, keeping him as witness, and with all my integrity I am declaring: YOU DO NOT HAVE ANY INCOMPLETIONS!


Caller:  Thank you, Swamiji!  Thank you for completing me Swamiji!  I love you!


Swamiji:  You ARE COMPLETE!  Okay?


Caller:  Thank you, Swamiji!  I love you!  Thank you, Swamiji!  I love you!


Swamiji:  So, from now, you will start meditating on it, contemplating on it.  Keeping this as a cognition you will start functioning.  My blessings to you!  Clear?


Caller:  Thank you, Swamiji!  I love you!  Thank you, Swamiji!  I love you!


Swamiji: Blessings!  Be blissful!  So it is time..... 


Caller: Yes, Swamiji!


Swamiji: Blessings Ma!


Swamiji: It is time.  We will have to move to the next step.  We are.....  Actually, today we have a long day, because the Nithya Kriya Yoga participants are going to have a session in the Sacred Arts by me.  I am taking them to the Sacred Arts tour.  Otherwise I would have continued the question-answer and debate.  I am not able to.  But they will continue in the next days.  Because today we have Nithya Kriya Yoga, I will move to the next segment.  But, in the further sessions and further satsanghs, we will continue to have question-answers and debates on these Upanishads. 


And, today, the Vedic Lifestyle introduction tour to Sacred Arts to all the Nithya Kriya Yoga participants.  So, Nithya Kriya Yoga participants, please go and have your breakfast quickly!  Now it is 8:03 a.m.; but keep it as 8 a.m., and by 9 a.m. finish your breakfast.  Before 9:30 a.m., be in the Sacred Arts.  I will give you guys the tour and intro to the Vedic Lifestyle. 


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