Maha Upadesh of Aadishri - 14

O’ people lying in confusion and grief. It is the eternal truth that one day all of will die.  This is confirmed in the Gita which says in chapter 2 verse 27 that all those who are born are certain to die and rebirth is certain for all those who have passed away.

The strange truth is that everyone knows this and yet most people operate as if they will live forever. The average person wants to live forever and then live through his son and then his son’s son. So far reaching is the planning of the earth bound person that there is no end to his desires. Not only do you want your business to grow by leaps and bounds but you want that to happen endlessly-forever. Yet this flies in the face of the fact that no-one and nothing is eternal. Even the tallest mountains will fade away so can you desires live forever?

The truth is that death is waiting around the corner-It has to come one day, by any means-illness, accident, old age or any unanticipated means, so all attempts to avoid it are futile.

So I ask you-if the reality of death is so certain that why do you we still want to be eternal? The answer friend is that something inside tells us that we could be eternal. And friends that inner instinct is not wrong.

What if I tell you that there is a way to be eternal? Will you believe me?  You may not believe me right now but I assure you that this is possible. You can do this if you follow my advice sincerely.

There is a fable called the Amar Katha, which Lord Shiva narrated to his wife goddess Parvati.  It is said that Lord Shiva narrated the tale in a secret cave to preserve the sanctity of the story but even after taking these elaborate precautions, two pigeons, sitting in the cave, heard the tale and as a result those two pigeons were said to have become immortal.

So friends, if pigeons can become immortal then so can you. Follow my advice faithfully and I will show you the path to eternal life.

If you are agreeable to what I am saying then come to me. I will narrate the AmarKatha to you and as long as you follow the conditions, you will get to your goal. And the conditions are not difficult… All you have to become is a sincere devotee of God and obey all of God’s percepts faithfully.

Maha Updesh – When tough times come, people’s courage fails and they feel that their troubled times will never end.  The fact is that both good and bad times come in life in different proportions. Like the seasons; like day and night; like heat and cold etc.  We make the common mistake of thinking that when good times or bad times come, both will become permanent in our life. The Gita says in chapter 2 verse 14 that good times and bad times come in our life like the seasons, like the heat and cold and like night and day.

So I advice you to be patient in times of trouble and not be too excited in times of happiness. That way you will never be negatively effected. Another important advice is to not be reactive to life’s situations.  You should neither be disspointed by the criticism of others nor excited by their praise.  Most people get affected by these things and let their sense of happiness and self worth be dictated by the opinions of others. Please don’t do so. Be unaffected by life and take its vagaries with stoicism.

If you follow these two advises, your life will be happy.

Maha Upadesh of Aadishri, Part - 11

O’ confused people of the world, you have all stained your souls with the futile activities of the world. Such is the stain that the color of your soul itself has changed and the stains cannot be easily washed away, so part of your psyche have they become.

In the beginning your soul was pristine and white in color and it was 100 percent pure, honest, compassionate and helpful to others. Now it has become exactly the opposite. Honesty has been replaced by dishonesty, compassion by selfishness and instead of helping others; you only want to exploit others.

We may think that we will achieve a lot by behaving this way but the reality is that all the sorrow, anger, frustration and unfulfillment we feel is because of the changes in the quality of our soul from pristine to stained.

And no-one outside ourselves has a cure for the misery we feel.

The world run by Kaal has no solution for this agony, so I, Aadishri, descending from the lap of my father have come to ease the suffering and agony of the people of the world. Only Paraatma and I, His son, can do this, this being beyond the scope of Kaal.

I am here to take all of you, or at least those of you who want to change, back to the origin.

It is true that I am the guide who can help you change back to your original self, but the work of changing has to be done by you, yourself.  So the question arises – how can the change be affected in your hearts?

The fact is that the attributes that you have been living in are the attributes of Kaliyuga and the ones that you aspire to be are the attributes of Satyuga. So if you truly want to change listen to my suggestions and guidelines and implement them faithfully in your life.

My first suggestion is that you should start by completely ignoring your past nature and behavior. Instead you will open a new chapter in your life and make a fresh start. You will forget all the things that have happened in the past. All the anger, fear and guilt that trap you in vicious cycles of misery must be first forgotten like a bad dream.

Instead you will imagine the ideal state. You will imagine how you want to be and how you want your life to be and make a resolve to be the kind of person who is right now just in your imagination.

Say that you are a peaceful and happy soul, five times before starting your meditation and imagine yourself to be in that peaceful state throughout your meditation.

When we do this regularly, such a state starts to materialize in our life. Our beliefs start to change, so our thoughts and that will change our actions. With different actions, we will create different results and the end result will be that our lives will be transformed.

So do not think negative, weak and passive thoughts. Do not think that you are incapable or helpless. Instead think of yourself as a pious and pure soul, without ego, anger, greed, lust and fear.

Here I would like to explain what a pure soul is. A pure soul is a soul that never thinks the wrong thought. By wrong thought I mean a selfish thought. A thought that creates division between what is I and what is not I.

When you actually believe that you are a pure soul, you will actually behave like a pure soul. All your actions will arise from that belief and only happiness, peace and blessings can be the result. You will come to believe that you are divine part of the supreme divinity, having come to represent your Lord on this earth. You will come to believe that all are one and that you accept every other person the way he is, going through his own particular journey. Each person on this earth is struggling to do what they think is right from within their sense of reality. If fear is their reality, people behave fearfully. If anger is their reality, people act with vengeance in their hearts and so on and so forth. I.e. Most people are confused. So rather than condemning such people, instead we should have the attitude of forgiveness towards the people of the world. They deserve our sympathy and not our anger for being different from our expectations.

If you live this way then you will become an angel of God, who has come to spread peace in this world. Lord Kalki says that if you truly want to serve your God, instead of looking for the angels of God who have come in the past and worshipping them, you yourself have to become an angel.  When you do that and act like that towards the confused and miserable people of the world, you would have done your bit to create the kind of world that God desires. So forget the miserable person you have been in the past and instead become the ideal person of your dreams.

As you believe, so you will become. Your mind is extremely powerful and it creates the reality in the image of your self-belief. Just as the imagination of ill-health creates disease, if you imagine peace, good health and happiness, so it will appear in your life and in the life of those around you.

So my advice to all of you is to change your beliefs. Belief you represent your father-God on earth, in all his finest qualities and then go and live your life. Only good will result if you do that.

O’ human, spread the reach of your mind and open it to my advice. Only then can you make your life happy. What lies beyond the reach of your questions and that which is beyond the reach of your intelligence, all that I want to grant to you.

 

Till now whatever knowledge I have granted you, all the advice that I have given to you about action, karma, techniques of yoga, methods of worship etc, forget all of them and instead come  into the grace of the Lord just as an injured child rushes into the arms of his mother. What does the mother do? She soothes the child and tends to its wounds and eases the pain.

 

 

If you take the shelter of God’s infinite mercy, you will be healed protected and nurtured and you will find peace.

Maha Upadesh of Aadishri, Part - 10

I want to understand from all of you about what you mean when you say that you want peace. Is it peace for yourself, your family, your village, your country or the entire world?

If it is the case that you want peace for the entire world, then I ask you a question-who among you feels anger at least once a day?I want to raise your sleeping consciousness by reminding you that if you feel anger even once a day, you are actually polluting the world consciousness by your anger. And if you do not feel anger even once a day, then you are actually contributing to a peaceful environment not only for yourself, your family and relations, but to the entire world as well. This is truly the extent of your contribution to the entire world.

You may have heard that the one who sacrifices, is truly worth respecting, so I want to ask you to sacrifice your anger. The Gita in chapter 16 verse 21 calls anger the gateway to hell. I ask you – Why do you want to sit on the fast train to hell by generating anger in your heart? The same is said in chapter 2 verse 63 of the Gita, that anger generates very coarse and negative emotions.

For me, the best contribution we can make as individuals is to reject anger, lust, greed and ego from our lives and to adopt the eternal positive values of peace, happiness, love and service to others. If the world population does this at large, then we would have rejected the values of Kaliyuga and adopted the values of Satyauga.

Thus negative qualities related to anger, irritation, expressing anger on others, finding fault, taunting others, taking out ones irritation on others etc, these things have far worse impacts than even the deadly pollution that Delhi is experiencing these days.

Just as various measures have been suggested and adapted to tackle the effects of air pollution in Delhi, similarly, I will suggest methods to stop the spread of anger and hate in society.

They are as follows:-

  1. Practice the yoga of equanimity
  2. Maintain your balance in the face of all kinds of situations.
  3. If you have to disagree with someone, then do so with gentleness and politeness.

The point is that one should deal with the various situations that one faces, with no anger in ones heart and with the aim of transferring the same peace to the opposing person as well.

Let me remind you all that anger is not your natural state. Peace;love;service to others;compassion to all, truthfulness etc are your natural benevolent state. We have lost the natural state and we have got used to unnatural states in our life.

The only way to return is to abandon the state of anger and hate. I would ask you to not only have peace in your own heart but also to avoid those people who have anger in their hearts. It is better to not associate with such people. I suggest that you should not even take food prepared by such people since that food is also contaminated and will affect your health and equanimity.

These, then, are some of the ways to avoid the path of anger, fear and hate and to take the path of peace and happiness.
