Dedication

This book is dedicated to souls searching for fullness of life and somehow suspects that life must be a magnificent child like play and all struggles are rooted in wrong understanding about life. Here you will recognize the simplicity of it all as you follow my life's adventures of play in all areas from Mastering of Academics to Mastering of relationships to Mastering of Finances without effort, without exerting my will or practicing anything religiously with effort. This sounds the anti thesis of most Self Development regimen that is popularly sold with so much effort. I consider that my life is well lived if at least one more life is kindled to be playfully rich in all areas as I discovered it to be. This book is a reconfirmation of all that you must have already suspected about life but hardly had the courage to go against the current of struggle for success. This book is especially dedicated for the great life ahead for my son Krishna Siddhant and my great life partner Arundhati ma who have suffered a lot so far because of the rarely trodden path that I have taken which remained a mystery to them. She took it as a challenge to bring me back to the beaten path. Now the mystery is open to them and my playful path is being slowly acknowledged by her as truly fulfilling. 3

Acknowledgement I acknowledge the source of inspiration for my life, My Guruji Bhagwan Sri Vishweswaraiah. I followed his child like life and I too enjoyed the Bliss of life. All my discoveries are basically springs coming from his majestic mountain. I acknowledge the Master, Sri Maharishi Mahesh Yogi who saw the spark of the divine child in me and gave me a great playground of Global opportunities. He made me familiar with the most powerful persons on the planet. Maharishiji introduced to me the technicalities of “Life is Effortless�. I followed his life and not so much his word or technique. Most people followed his technique. I am the most fortunate of his disciples. I thank my Mother Srimathi Rama Devi who allowed me to be a child all my life. Her contribution to transformation of life on earth cannot be acknowledged by mere words. If all mothers did what she did for me, their children's life would be golden. All tributes for this work must go to her. Many of my students gave all of themselves to my life and teachings. They stand as next in line to lead the world. I pay my tributes to their faith in me and the teachings. This book is acknowledged by my students and their sharing is an important part of this book. Normally, reviews are done by other famous men. I am moved by my students sharing's, as they have the real right to review my teachings after putting themselves out fully with me for many years. This is what I mean by the path less traveled.

Sharings of Students of Guruji about the Book “So far no Guru has dared to write such a book' “While I was reading the book, I did not feel I was reading, I felt I am in the presence of my Guruji” “I started seeing the same happening to me as if I was the writer” “I felt totally refreshed in one shot” “From my long term association with Guruji, I felt the book has revised all the lessons in a few hours.” “I am reborn after each reading” “I want to live this way – this is the way to live” “The moment anybody completes reading the book, they will become a child – every moment- enjoyment is guaranteed” “The sentence that particularly hit me was this“Can You start your life as if you were born yesterday without taking refuge in your past? - Without any built up identity. Can you dispose off your identity and start as a nobody? This was a challenge put to me by my wife who was sick of my busy programs. I took up the challenge when I was already 56 years old even though unwillingly” Vermaji Seeker,SSY teacher, Hyderabad

I enjoyed reading the book. It gave me valuable insights on the purpose of life, on why I (all of us) am in a constant state of stress trying to achieve something and how I can slow down and just be, and be happier for it. I could relate to the fact that the practice of silence can give us true freedom, as I experienced the same during the C part of the Pi program recently. The concept that “I am disturbed” helps us realise that it is we (from within) who decide whether to be happy or disturbed. It is all within us… a choice, a habit, a practice which can come from discipline. Finally, Brahmacharya or the practice of the highest form of discipline, involving healthy detachment from worldly belongings and pleasure, and even from our own identity, as the way of life, can lead to the highest form of freedom. All in all, a book with fantastic, very practical concepts, very radical too. If applied sincerely, it can truly show people the way to inner peace and happiness. Not a book for everyone though. Only for those willing to look beyond convention, beyond even themselves. Suman Bijlani Businessman,Bombay When I read this book, I read it again and again and again …. this book is something incredible , as far as I am concerned . The specialty of this book is the truth it contains and the unique approach that it is. My life the way it has unfolded is very much along the lines mentioned in this book. Guruji has not only transformed my life but , but lives of thousand others too . When I meet people, I tell them the same

Sharings of Students of Guruji about the Book

thing that Guruji had told me - simply follow me for 2 years and watch the miracle unfold !! Of late, it is not just sadhaks but also many organizations with whom we enter into a twoyear contract for seeing consistent improvement in the wellbeing of their people and the bottom-line of the company.

I would also like to share about the way the SSY programme helped my health. One particular thing that impacted me strongly on doing the SSY program was that I am responsible for everything that is happening in my life. After 1989, I fell sick many many times but every time I fall sick I would say to myself , there is some turmoil happening inside that I had to discover. I would discover a deeper truth then and get relieved. I once got a earache which lasted for 15 days and was the most painful experience of my life . I endeavored to see how I am responsible for it . There were semi-conscious emotional blocks I became aware of and which when I cleared, my earache disappeared. In the process of my clearing myself through uncovering a truth about myself every time, I got typhoid, I got malaria twice , then even got herpes ‌ All this was nothing but a detoxification of the poisons I unknowingly stored inside and which I got free of through the SSY doctrine of self-responsibility. As regards the dimension of wealth, I got my Guru's credit card just when I undauntedly started taking up projects of Guruji. And, in this process of being with Guruji for over 6 years, I also got God's credit card. Day after day, I am able to see more and more divinity in everyone and everything around me.

I do feel like the king of the world. I stay in a 64 sq feet kutir on a hill-top in a village called katarkhadak on the outskirts of Pune, but honestly I feel like the king of the world. Generating wealth has become really effortless particularly when it is about doing God's own work. And I am promising every single person I meet, that 窶田ome and join us , you can also generate wealth in reality, in your outside as well as inside world. Day after day, I can perceptibly see the way I have lost all attachment towards money . My bank account is almost nil, I just have enough for me to show at the Visa offices so that they can let me travel around the world , to do God's work. My wealth is the number of people who love me and whom I love and this grows exponentially with every passing day. I wish for those who read this to also take this opportunity , and jump in with us , if not for your life , at least for 2 years 窶ヲ and see the miracle unfold in their lives . I have been with Guruji for almost 23 years now and it has been the most joyous journey of my life . The greatness of my Guru is in his simplicity , his truthfulness and he is always there to give away credit, making sure that others are more important than him . This is an extremely rare quality and the only person I have found it existing in abundance is in my Guruji : the quality that he wants others to be more important and prominent than his own self . Manoj Lekhi Trainer of CEO's,Director Rishi Gurukulam,Pune, SSY Acharya

Sharings of Students of Guruji about the Book

"My first remark is that SSY Program as introduced to me in 1979 / 1980 / 1981 was the first Bomb to personal ego. This program has been since then taken up by so many different "Gurus and Masters" and presented in so many modified versions and many have conceptualized it , profited or made a life out of this. “This book is a greater Bomb than that of SSY. Those who dare can take this challenge and not only transform themselves but also bring greater order around them. I am personally reading it every day, meditating on it to see how I can incorporate may be very small parts of this in my life or will I leap - I do not know at this time - this will be God's will and opening within me - a greater awakening perhaps." Valmiki wrote Ramayan. Only people like Gandhi could dare to walk the path. There was a lot of personal sacrifice and the sacrifice of the family, for both Rama and Gandhi. Guruji's book also involves personal sacrifice and also that of Arunthathima and Siddhanth both of whom I love dearly. This will keep touching the life of humanity in generations to come. Radha Jayaraman Accountant and SSY Teacher Ottawa. Canada We changed our place of living & our lifestyle completely(from Chennai to Thiruvannamalai, the abode of Sri Ramana Maharshi) to discover the freedom and Enlightenment, but the stagnation continued till this Guruji"s Manual reached our hands. The only way for real transformation was to bring out the

CHILD in us, for we knew the child can only do/undo anything, anywhere, anytime freely, spontaneously & effortlessly without judging, analysing, criticizing, comparing or condemning any actions. As per the manual we exercised without resisting anything by dissolving all our identifications,(with objects, people in relationships, place we live........etc)past conditioning's, routine pattern of living, & changing our life style .as guided by Guruji in e-satsangs. We exercised SILENT PRACTICE(SP) effortlessly often in our lives. FREE FLOW of life began. Like the example in the book,, laughing at our self is curative & at others is poison. we adopted in our lives that looking around or interfering with other's business was insane & Minding one's self by Silent practice(SP) is the only solution for a FREE LIFE. Kavita and Ravi Narayanan, Seekers and SSY teachers, Thiruvannamalai I read the book “Live life king size on an empty wallet� and completed it yesterday night non-stop. It is nectar of Tao te ching , Bhagavad Gita, Gist of Vedas and Upanishads and what not.. You deserve at least 1000 Nobel prizes. Thanks a lot. Srikant patenkar, Advocate,Khopoli SSY Teacher.

My Guru to me My guruji Shri Rishi Prabhakar Is an extra ordinary person Is a greatly evolved soul

You may ask me why do I say so? Well, Not because he is an aeronautical engineer Not because he is a management graduate from Canada Not because he has got a masters degree Not because he is a computer scientist But, for these are only his small qualifications.

His greatness lies in not knowing that he has all these qualifications Infact he has forgotten all these degrees He has once again become a child He is simply great Great because he sees greatness in others

He is a true master Not because he has attained mastery in philosophy Not because he has attained mastery in medicine Not because he has attained mastery in education Not because he has attained mastery in agriculture, ecology, and psychology

13


But because he is so so simple Simplicity is his way Simplicity is his approach To me my guruji is god Infact, he is god incarnate to all those Who are fortunate to spend a few moments in his presence

There is something divine about guruji Infact divinity is just pouring out He is such an ordinary person Which makes him an extra ordinary being He is truly a simple soul Which makes him a greatly evolved soul

He not only cares for me But cares for everyone around him He not only cares for everyone around him But for every living and non living creature in this world

This whole universe is his In fact, he is the whole universe

Notes:

CHAPTER ONE Test Your Brakes “A busy man is never too wise; A wise man is never too busy”. - Lin Yutang

A young man sat on a motor cycle for the first time in his life. He had his brother start the engine while he held the clutch. As the engine started, he was asked to slowly release the clutch. The motor cycle started moving. He was so excited that he was riding the vehicle. He understood that he can slow down the vehicle by turning the accelerator and happily went around the block. Everybody cheered as he came back. Again he came back second time. This time he wanted to stop. He did not know where the brakes were. He shouted to his brother “Where are the brakes?”. His brother ran and shouted, “Apply the clutch and press the pedal below your right feet”. He could not hear him. Again he came around the block. This time, the brother shouted the instructions again running along with the vehicle. Again he could not understand what his brother said. The young man jumped out of the vehicle with serious injuries. The vehicle was upon him. That young man was my Grand Father. Do you know your brakes? Most people do not even know that there is a brake. They run around the business of life every day without brake or break. Days turn into weeks. Weeks turn into months and months into years. After several years they know what is coming next year. The only unknown is death which they fear so much. Without brakes, you cannot stop and get down where you want to go. Most people do not get down at all until death. 19


Live Life King Size on an Empty Wallet

Have you taken any time to ask the question: “Where am I going?” I have a friend who is always anxious to go to the next place. As soon as we reach a place desired, he is pressing us to move to the next place. He is happy to be driving. He could not enjoy the place where we were. Most of us are only going. Going where? I was very busy going round and round teaching people how to rest, how to meditate. I thought it is my fundamental duty to teach and make a contribution. There was no time for anything else. “If you want to do great things, live as though you are never going to Die” ……… “If you want to do loving things, live as though you are going to die tomorrow” .. I was addicted to doing great things, loving things. I was a great man. Everybody I know of, also agreed that I am Great. My ego was fully satisfied. Are you also one of these great men, giving your life for your family and community? Do you go to work earnestly? Do you go to the church on Sundays? Are you a good Christian or Muslim or Jew or Buddhist? Are you going regularly to places where you are expected to go?. “Is your life for fulfilling your past commitments and keeping appointments on your calendar or do you live the hour or day in a way that it deserves to be remembered in your and other's calendar?” “A Busy man is never too wise; A wise man is never too busy.”

20


Test Your Brakes

Are you free or are you always too busy? Where are you going? Have you found the place where you want to go. Most people don't know where they are going. They are always bored where they are. They want to go – but to where. Can you stop what you are regularly doing? We are all caught in what we are regularly used to doing. We have become experts. An expert is one who does some thing with great ease that others can do only after much training and time. We don't have the courage to stop. We are afraid what will happen to us, if we stop. Going for a holiday and coming back to the same work is not stopping. Can you start your life as if were born yesterday without taking refuge in your past? Without any built up identity? Can you dispose off your identity and restart as a nobody? This was a challenge put to me by my Wife who was sick of my busy programmes. I took up the challenge when I was already 56 years old even though unwillingly. We packed off our bags and left for Pondicherry. My life became miserable. Those who heard our story said that we will not last even six months after the intoxication of being admired and wanted by so many people around the world for so many years. They watched us humorously. I slept as much as I could and took to fancy engineering works and doing things that I had never done before. I had not visited a grocery shop for decades. Some students who met me on the streets could not believe that their Master was in the shops and walking around like an ordinary mortal. I had lots of time as I had relieved myself of usual busy schedules not because I was retired. I was churning out my

21


Live Life King Size on an Empty Wallet

identity. My wife would remind me to get rid of my identity. It was pain on one side and a challenge on the other. I am sure that almost all Spiritual Teachers who have been adored for years by millions will find it impossible to churn out their identity and are as much stuck as any body else. They talk of the ill effects of Ego but are full of fat ego. They will justify that they have no ego but hardly one of them can walk daringly like a Gandhi. It is during these painful days for my ego that a new process started happening. I discovered a kind of Pranayam, stretching and Silence that took me deeper into Samadhi that I had hardly attained in years of my Sadhana. I was getting a new understanding that transcended all that I had learnt. I started feeling that “I can do anything” just like a child. Whatever I had thought was beyond me, had become a possibility. My body started changing. I began to feel so young. I had found the nectar of life. I had learnt “how to stop” at will like you brake a vehicle rather than be dead by hitting a tree. I was also aging and dying though not as fast as my classmates. My previous Sadhana of Siddha Samadhi Yoga helped me to stop for 15 minutes a day before lunch and dinner. But, I had no way to stop for long periods and enjoy the silence of my being, both in and out of Meditation. The way I was going, I would have lived a maximum of 120 years. Now I was churning out my ego and growing younger day by day. I have named it as SSY Kaya Kalp Kriya as it brings about a renewed body. We have very successfully demonstrated (See www.ssy.org) that by practicing SSY meditation for 15 minutes twice a day, we are able to change our food habits to

22


Test Your Brakes

50% natural foods and most Life Style diseases like Diabetes, Blocks in the heart, Ulcers, Asthma, Arthritis etc.. can be successfully reversed and dependence on drugs can be eliminated. SSY KKK is about 10 times stronger than SSY. Most people are able to shift to 80% raw foods immediately. They feel very calm and energized all through the day. Need for sleep is reduced to about 4 to 5 hours. New vistas and possibilities open up. 60 year old people start feeling 16 year old in just a few days. People who had not played with children start playing like kids. Chronic diseases start to disappear in just a few days. Obese people loose many pounds in a week. Muscles and nerves start getting rejuvenated and a beautiful body begins to form. Now, we see that many cancers can be reversed (studies have been started with the co-operation of the National Institute on Cancer, The Kidwai Memorial Institute of Oncology) to document the effects on Cancer Through SSYKKK we are able to stop our running into no where and stop build up of our old habits and identities. When our past impressions run our lives, we loose control and act as automated beings. Our behavior becomes predictable and our personality is set stronger day by day. This is called being driven by our past Karma or past repeated action out of habit and not out of choice. These developed personalities can not be broken by merely visualizing your wanted personality. To develop 7 habits or 10 habits of Effective people – mere reading of text books on Personality development will not do. The Secret – the secret of success is not merely in positive thinking. Until the original personality is broken down to fine clay, the pot can not be reconstructed. You may see the movie, the secret, a million

23


Live Life King Size on an Empty Wallet

times; you will remain the same conditioned personality. And what ever change that happens for a short time happens out of extreme effort and practice and lapses into the old self. The person is more tired than before and looses whatever comfort he/she was blissfully enjoying- even though very much less day by day. Enthusiasm for life, for most people, may be decreasing but at least the bliss of ignorance is not lost. There are two kinds of Bliss. The first one is the bliss of discovering that I can do more than before through my acquired ability and assets. This is progressive. Then there is the bliss of agreeing with defeated people that “the world is going wrong and nothing can be done�. Young people belong to the first category. Most older people belong to the second category. This is the difference between moving to life or moving to death. Actual Physical death is a relief for a soul to acquire a new body and restart life. When nothing can be enjoyed by this body, it is better to throw it. Nature acts this way and relieves the soul from further misery. A life lived without joy is not worth living. One must learn to live consciously, joyfully and in freedom or Moksha. Being led by your past agreements, aspirations, memories and actions without the ability to stop and recreate, you repeat what is comfortable rather what is required and wanted in the moment. Most people live in past agreements and never in the moment. The honeymoon is only a memory. Right now they some-how get along with their life, with their boss, with their co-workers, with the neighbors and finally with their wives. The celebration of the moment is lost. “Is your life for fulfilling your past commitments and keeping appointments on your calendar or do you live the

Test Your Brakes

hour or day in a way that it deserves to be remembered in your and other's calendar?” You must be very upset with yourself by now. But hold on. Take a break. You still have the chance to celebrate life. At least fully shout out … “Ha Ha Ha... I am a fool”. Fools can enjoy life. If you are serious, you have missed the point. My Guru was laughing at himself a lot. Then we also laughed with him. Laughing at one self is a curative. Laughing at others is a poison.

25


Live Life King Size on an Empty Wallet

What have you learnt? A car without brakes ends up in uncontrolled accidents. Life with out voluntary stops runs into misery. Changing habits requires dismantling the fort of identity built from repeated doing. Death is a relief from body which can be reborn and fresh by emptying the past. Personality shift can start only with dissolution of the previous person. There is a lot of difference between learning to do something well and opening oneself to be able to do anything. The first one is effortful and the second is effortless. “I will do this at any cost” is the word of a dangerous person who is getting further bound to more action (Karma). “I can do any thing” is the experience of a liberated soul. How do you dissolve the previous person? Contemplate. Write down the person you would

CHAPTER TWO Growing young and being rich - check your credit card 31


CHAPTER TWO Growing young and being richcheck your credit card

Life is for making money or Money is there for life? “Is the business there for your life or is your life there for Business?” My child Siddhant walked up to a store and asked the store keeper – “Uncle, please give me some potato chips”. I was watching him from a distance. The shop keeper provided whatever he asked for. He did not even ask Siddhant for money. Siddhant did not know about money. He simply asked whatever he wanted and it was given to him. Whatever children ask, elders are obliged to give. Russian President Gorbochev was asked by a small girl in America to give her peace. Gorbochev was moved into action that reversed the cold war. Children led the clean Mexico campaign that government could not do. They accomplished it in no time. I understood at the age of 27 that it is useless to work for money. I stopped working for money. After earning an M.B.A. degree from the Harvard of Canada, I saw no value in giving my life for mere earning of money. I packed my bags from Canada and left to serve Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in Switzerland. After my teacher Training in TM, Maharishiji accepted me as his student and volunteer. I had no money. I had given it up for a greater blessing to serve a mission that touched my heart. I was not working for money. I was working for my own dream for a prosperous world.

32


Live Life King Size on an Empty Wallet

Maharishiji was my mentor and provider for my mission. I served him with all my heart not just with my hands and intellect. Maharishiji liked me naturally and I was an important International director in his mission. I was given great opportunities and responsibilities that nobody can imagine. I had acquired the backing of Maharishiji's credit card which ran into Billions of Dollars. Surrendering one self to a greater cause and mission is the way to acquire infinite wealth. When I allow myself to be an agent of Maharishiji, I get to have his credit card. Later in the course of my quest, I discovered a higher truth on how to enter the transcendental state or Samadhi in every meditation.. I offered it to Maharishiji in Hyderabad in 1979. Maharishiji was too busy to give me time to fully understand my discovery. I did not have the means and ability to put forward my theory and practice in a way that would convince Maharishiji to accept the new theory and practice. I could have comfortably basked under Maharishiji's credit card. I fore shook my comfort and ventured to go at it alone to give the new discovery to the world. By this time I had realized that I can get God's credit card directly. I stopped carrying any money as security with me and this is my state even to this day. I was inspired by the words of Yogananda Paramhamsa in his book “Autobiography of a Yogi”. “God will provide what is needed to the devotee”. I gave myself to this experience and God has not failed me. I am analyzing the mode on how it works. As soon as I dropped my money and gave myself to the will of God, a new world opened up to me. I was no more rich or poor. I transcended money itself. Money is there for life. Life is not for making money.

33


Growing young and being Rich check your credit card

An important shift happened in my perspective of the people around me. They all began to appear to me as Gods. Even beggars were greater than me. I saw them as Gods. I have no problem in asking any body around me for what I want like a child. Invariably people around me get me what I want. They feel that they are giving it to God. When I see others as Gods, naturally others see me as God. I have no attachment to holding on to what others give. Money is for life. I give it away or use it for serving Gods around me. When I notice that a person has given me something beyond what he can afford, I return it to him as soon as possible. They have given me some things as credit. Richness of a person is not in how much money he has but to what extent people are willing to give him as credit. Now I have got God's credit card. I am only as rich as the God they see in me. I do not want to be God. I see myself only as a devotee of God. To pretend to be God is very burdensome. I pass on all my burden to God as a devotee. I trained a number of teachers to teach SSY. Most of them stopped teaching as it became burdensome. Some teach actively because they get money. Still others think that they are Gods. Some stopped teaching as I asked them to stop teaching and start living as an example. Now, I do not want to train teachers. I want people to live and earn God's credit card before they start teaching on how to be free and prosperous and joyful in their lives. Spiritual Masters can not be trained in a month long course or even a few years course. They have to become children of God and earn God's credit card. People can also earn Guru's credit card by serving the Guru - Serving the Guru means offering all of oneself to the Guru. It

34


Live Life King Size on an Empty Wallet

is difficult to see God in every one from the start. Guru who lives like a God helps you to see God. If you are able to recognize your Guru and able to surrender wholly, your journey is made easy as the Guru gives his credit card for your use until you earn your direct credit card from God. Surrendering to the Guru is not slavery. Surrendering to money is slavery. Once in a seminar on growing young, I asked people with severe diseases to come and consult me at a certain time. A whole family of a rich household arrived for consultation. One had Diabetes, another had Arthritis, another Blood pressure and another had Asthma etc... I was surprised and told themyou are a rich family. Why are you carrying so many diseases? You must be selfish enough to at least wanting to be healthy. Why don't you use your wealth? Go for a long pilgrimage, enjoy yourself in holy surroundings and get rid of all of your ailments. The man said, “Sir, what you say is correct. But if I go to pilgrimage who will look after my shop?” “Is the business there for your life or is your life there for the shop?” I asked. Everyone in the group laughed and said “Sir, our life is also the same. We have sold our life to making money.” Another old woman said “I am always thinking about who should get my money after my death. My life will end worrying about money”. Another one said, “While spending the money also, we are worried about what we are spending and we hardly enjoy what we are eating or buying. Only thing we seem to enjoy is a free meal. Not because it is tasty but because it is free.” I enjoy my meals because they are all freely given with

Growing young and being Rich check your credit card

Love. I also get the best of everything as I give the best of myself free. I enjoy my holidays and travels as they are all free and people take me to the best exotic places nearby. I enjoy what I do because I do it all free. I am free and those that are with me get it all free. I don't sell myself or my services. You are free to give what you feel like without pressure but with all your pleasure. I can take care of any number of people. If you want Guru's credit card, just be around the Guru like a child. Just being around the Guru is also called Satsanga (being with God). You are free to follow yourself and earn your own credit card. If you want to be really rich and experience the beauty of life, get God's credit card. You have to do the Sadhana of dropping all of yourself and surrendering to God and be able to see God in the people around you. Getting a car or house or a lover by effort and negotiation will not give you wealth. They will all take away your wealth. Receiving things bestowed on you by grace of God is the only real joy. It is all free, provided you are free. Freedom (Moksha) is realized first and then all freeships follow. People think that surrendering to money is freedom. And surrendering to GURU is slavery and bondage. Contemplate How will you be free? Contemplate What your life in bondage to money look like? Write. What will your life in freedom look like? Write.

What have you learnt? Most people have sold their life for money. Credit card is the real wealth. You can get Guru's credit card by surrendering to the Guru. You have to be with the Guru until you get your own credit card from God directly. Be free and all freeships come to you. Receiving things bestowed on you by grace from God is the only real joy. Don't work for money. Happily work for the Gods around you.

CHAPTER THREE How to be Free ? 41


CHAPTER THREE How to be Free? I learnt that the most valuable experience that everyone is looking for is FREEDOM. Whether you are studying in a college towards a degree or going to work for earning bread and butter or you have started a business or enter politics: everyone is seeking freedom Nobody likes to be imprisoned and their freedom taken away. Everyone strives for freedom. Their way of expressing this urge may be different. The more courageous you are, the more fun and freedom you have in your life. The greatest courage is not in going to war with your neighbor to defeat and subjugate him. This is what most people do get freedom from their obstacles and neighbor is the first one that resists your encroachment. So it is most difficult to love thy neighbor as you love yourself. You can love people who are far away and who do not interfere with you day to day. The greatest courage is to keep quiet and trust. I learnt that there are different depths to keeping quiet. I also learnt that “Freedom is never secured by acting on the obstacle outside. Freedom is experienced only by going inwards into your silence.�

42

I was always anxious and nervous while studying for my M.B.A. I noticed that I was working very hard to meet the horrendous requirements of the class. Before I broke down I was fortunate to discover how to slow down my activity. Until then, I had never thought that there is something like slowing down consciously. Slowing down consciously is different from giving up out of frustration. If you are feeling frustrated, then that is the right time to get back into conscious slowing down. Slowing down your physical activity is not so difficult. But slowing down your mind is an art to be learnt. That art started with my practice of TM. Then, I noticed that almost everyone who practiced TM around me was caught up in getting somewhere called enlightenment. This is a much greater disease. Gradually I have learnt what is conscious slowing down. We are normally caught up in producing some result or another. To be still without perking ourselves into some action or another for a result is not understood or practiced. Most people without the taste of this experience of stillness will call this practice as a waste of time and laziness. It is not an art that you can master in a day. But it is not hard like learning music etc.. Easiest thing to do is “Doing Nothing�. In the practice of silence first we must understand that we are not trying to achieve anything for at least a few minutes while we are practicing silence. The silence happens by itself and we are only setting up conditions for the silence to happen by itself without any interference from our side.

43


How to be Free ?

We can start with sitting quietly and not be disturbed for a few minutes in our life. What is sitting quietly? Not to be disturbed by three things is sitting quietly. The first thing that disturbs you is the surroundings. You will be disturbed by your wife or child if you don't tell them not to disturb you for a few minutes. You have to switch off your phone or make some arrangement to receive the phone. You must be able to make sure that you are not physically called upon to act on the outside world for a few minutes. Second obstacle that does not allow you to be quiet is your body pains. You can not relax while standing because the body will begin to pain. You have to sit comfortably so the body does not disturb you. You should not lie down for conscious slowing down. The mind will tend to go to sleep rather than be in conscious silence. The spine must be comfortably erect. During the first few days it is alright to support your back while sitting. It is best to sit cross legged on the floor on a mat. If not possible, sit in a comfortable chair with a straight back so that the spine is perpendicular to the ground. The third obstacle to sitting quietly is your past memories. When you start attending to your thoughts that come to your mind, you start getting excited. The trick is to notice the thoughts as you notice passersby without taking action or getting engrossed in them. We neither reject a passerby nor attend to a passerby. We just let them go without attraction or repulsion. If you sit quietly like this consciously for a few minutes, doing nothing, something miraculous happens.

44

Then you start feeling very relaxed. Gradually, your body feeling disappears. You start feeling an emptiness that is full of awareness. This conscious silence is called SAMADHI. Gradually all thoughts slow down and they stop bothering you even though you notice that they are there. Don't try to eliminate these passerby thoughts, you will get into trouble. Let the passerby be, it will let you be. You become tranquil and many of your past disturbances from day to day events will disappear. Now you will be able to see them as events and not as disturbances. This is how you become free from disturbances and events. You are free now. After about 15 minutes of silence sitting quietly, you start feeling energetic and a spontaneous enthusiasm to play in the world will begin. After a nice nap, you don't continue to sleep. You start going to the bath room, empty you bowels, brush your teeth and you are ready for breakfast. You are ready for action even if you don't have to go to work. Important thing is not to try to sit quietly for longer than your body and mind allows. Get up and start kicking. Life is not for only sitting quietly. You must be able to go into your quietness when your body feels exhausted and your mind is disturbed. Learning this art is the first fundamental education according to the Enlightened Masters of India. Taking time to do nothing is the practice of Silence. You will start appreciating that in Silence you experience abundance. You are in touch with God – God is abundance, unlimited. God is not a thing or a person. God is the inner experience of peace. God is within and outside. Before you start experiencing the God outside as play, let us experience

45


How to be Free ?

the God within as peace. You can go to deep levels of silence if you take time to sit quietly before lunch or dinner. Once you eat food, the digestive metabolism will not allow your body to be quiet. It is important for us to take 15 minutes time to sit quietly before eating while we are tired and hungry. I learnt that silence practice cannot be done at any odd time and especially when you are disturbed from events in life. Regular practice of silence clears the clutter in the mind similar to vacuuming your carpet of dust. SP (Silence Practice) helps you to unburden your stress. One of the best times to take 15 minutesof Silence is after your office work. Sit quietly for 15 minutes after office hours at the office after the clutter in the office stops and nobody is there to physically disturb you or call for your attention. You may go home a few minutes later but a fresh you is present to your family and you can dispose off all thoughts and concerns about the office. I first started practicing silence when I was still working in Ottawa. There was a distinct difference in my walk back home after work. Before SP, I was going home dead tired. Now after SP, I was dancing home and cooked for my group in a few minutes enthusiastically. “Life is not about getting things done. Life is about enthusiasm in what you do.� Any job is great if you have that inherent enthusiasm that comes from inner silence and satisfaction. Most people are enthusiastic when they see that the end result is very lucrative. That carrot for striking the energy lasts for a while and becomes zero on failure to get the result or even

46


Live Life King Size on an Empty Wallet

when the suspicion of failure creeps in. Another pep talk, another empowerment seminar may boost your ego and excite you into resolved action to fight for success. Such ego trips cause great zapping of energy. You join a group of people who are equally greedy like you in net work marketing groups. You talk of service to the community but the hidden agenda is your greed. Then you may invite another empowerment leader greedier than your whole group to kick you into action. Any thing you do with greed will lessen your life span as there is great exertion. With SP you will realize that getting some where is not the end all of life. Where you start is more important than where you arrive and in fact where you start and where you end is one and the same. Normally you start (binding) actions with greed and prospectus of gain. In SP, you start with no expectations and end in no expectations but in a state of contentment and inner enchantment. You end up in joy for no reason and no effort. Here the laws are different from working for results. This is the science of AKARMA (Non Doing). We are used to the laws of Karma only. In work, you have a starting point, a process to get to the next point and the goal. You feel successful on achieving the goal. It is all perspiration for days and years for a moment of joy. To get a degree you spend 15 years of work and you feel successful for a moment. You are not satisfied still as there are others who have accomplished much more. In play, you start the play for play and enjoy the play while

47


How to be Free ?

at play and there is no goal other than play. The science and art of life is to live life as play and not as work. “Joy is not afterwards but now.� Contemplate: Whether you should do things for joy or you should do things joyfully? Contemplate: Are you able to stop doing and start BEING? Whether Freedom is for doing or Freedom is from Doing? Freedom of Speech is important or Freedom from Speech is important? Similarly with Freedom of Thought or Freedom from thought etc... Struggle is for freedom of speech. It requires permission from others. Freedom from speech is real freedom which you get in your own silence. When you are in silence, you enjoy it so much that speaking drops off by itself. Doing leads to a more and more bounded personality (Builds up Ego). Non doing liberates your spirit. Doing is material. Non Doing is spiritual. While doing you forget who you really are. While in non doing, you realize who you are. Normally, we identify ourselves with the body or what we studied or with a philosophy or with a country or with a culture etc and lose our real unbounded Self as Awareness. Gaining spirit, rather than being stuck with EGO is WISDOM. Wisdom stops ignorant reactive action that binds you further,. All freedom and all answers are in the silence. The ultimate GURU is Silence. (Dakshinamurthy Gurave Sarva lokaanaam, Bhishaje bhava Roginam, Nidhaye Sarva Vidyanaam, Dakshinaa murthaye namha)

What have you learnt? Freedom is experienced by going into silence within. Learning to be silent is the first Fundamental Education for life. Silence Practice overcomes three obstacles to Silence that of - Surroundings, Body Pain and Past Memories. Life is not about getting things done. Life is about being in enthusiasm . Freedom is not for doing but real freedom is freedom from doing.

Exercises Here are a few exercises for you to experience freedom: 1.

Sit quietly for 15 minutes twice a day before lunch and dinner as described in Practice of Silence.

2.

Observe how you feel compelled to take action on others and situations that restrict your sense of freedom.

3.

Observe whether you are with the people around you the way you want or reacting to a past pleasant/unpleasant memory in their presence.

4.

Observe how your struggle is for freedom of action, freedom from others and of others, freedom of expression. Can you be free from your habituated self?

“Freedom for doing originates from the Freedom from doing- Silence�

World of Nature is Karma world, that of matter with its laws of cause and effect. Science studies cause and Effect. World of Freedom is of spirit. It has no cause. It is just Fantasy. Freedom Grows by Silence and surrendering possessions of Nature. (Like my house, my land, my Car, my wife, my knowledge). Less Luggage more easy to travel Freely. Freedom with Fantasy leads to creation and play. Possession will cause worry of keeping possessions more than the Joy of creating with the possessions. This is how the world of reaction is created - by possessing

NOTES

54


CHAPTER FOUR “SomeBody is Disturbing me” vs “I am Disturbed” and answers to terrorism Ordinarily, people say, my wife is disturbing my freedom, or my boss is disturbing my career or my work is disturbing my life etc.. We do not make the critical distinction between; “I am disturbed” vs “Somebody is disturbing me”. We always feel that the disturbance is coming from outside. If you feel that your boss is the problem in your life then your reaction is to do something about getting rid of my Boss. If you can not get rid of your boss, you come home with anger and start taking it out on your wife. If the wife asks you to go with her for shopping, you start shouting – “can't you go and shop by yourself. Why do you always need me”. Now the wife is disturbed. She wonders what she has done wrong. They always enjoyed shopping together. Now the wife takes it out on the daughter. She comes to the living room and sees the child watching a cartoon. Then she starts scolding the child – “You are always watching cartoons. I will throw away this TV.” Now the child is disturbed, she will take it out on the pet etc.. You take great trouble to change your job. If you cannot change the job, you get blood pressure, you live an unwilling relationship with your Boss and then with your family. Your productivity becomes poor and now your company has a problem. Now everyone in the company is your enemy. They see you in poor light. You avoid parties with friends from the

55


Live Life King Size on an Empty Wallet

company. Now your life's scope is reduced by more than half. You become more and more lonely. You react and deal with every situation in life with this bitterness. Every time you blame others or, try to get rid of your problem you get to cut off more and more avenues of your life and freedom. Ultimately you start seeing that nobody is OK in the world. Nobody cares. Nobody loves. You are the only hero who is right. This process of taking action to remove your problem is called as “Getting into more Karma (action) or Bondage”meaning - losing your freedom. Now, if doing anything about my problem, gets me into more problems, and then what do I do. This is a million dollar question and now you will get a million dollar answer. The answer is in recognizing that “I am disturbed” not that “somebody is disturbing me”. When you recognize that “I am disturbed” then you can get rid of your disturbance. You don't have to do any thing about the outside situation. To get from the state of “I am disturbed” to “I am OK” is called Sadhana or spiritual practice. Spiritual practice does not involve action. It involves non doing. You sit quietly and the turmoil in your mind disappears by itself. This is where SP comes in - in resolving all your problems by “Doing Nothing”. That is why the most courageous thing in the world is to “Do Nothing”. You don't have to win over any body. You win over by getting yourself back as the spirit - as a NOBODY. The

56


“SomeBody is Disturbing me”vs “I am Disturbed”

spiritual practice is to get back to your spirit by being quite. Normally, we identify ourselves with the body or what we studied or with a philosophy or with a country or with a culture etc and lose our real unbounded Self as Awareness. Gaining spirit, rather than being stuck with EGO is WISDOM. Wisdom stops ignorant reactive action that binds you further,. Action is not to be abhorred. Only actions coming from the state “I am not OK and this action will fix the problem” is to be diligently avoided. Difference between trying to be Silent and being Silent: Trying to be silent is effortful. You want to speak but you are asked to be silent. Then you shut up fuming inside. This is not silence but trying to be silent. Being silent comes from seeing that things are OK as they are. By just being with what is there, you just settle down. You actually start experiencing that everything is OK. You are able to start fresh again just like a child. Child simply starts with where it is without bringing up past fights and animosities. Action coming forth from “Every thing is OK” state is simple play and joyousness - with nothing to lose or gain. When I am motivated by any gain other than the joyful experience of play, I suspect that there is something wrong. I have to watch out for this MAYA (Illusion). Most people think that their religion saves people and they should convert others to their belief and their way of doing things and their Messiah to have a better relationship and peace in the world. Great wars are fought in the name of religion.

57

I don't go to heaven by propagating my religion while I am creating hell in my life here on earth itself by unnecessary perspiration and hating people of other religions.

We are all caught up in our identities as Man or woman, Jewish or Christian, American or Russian by repeatedly doing things to protect our identity. If I am a person born of Jewish parents, then my antennas straighten up as soon as the word Jew is heard. The function of our intellect is to protect what we consider ourselves to be. We are prepared to sacrifice our body for the sake of our identity as a Jew, Hindu, Muslim or American or Russian or Capitalist or Communist. The way to wisdom and sanity is DOING NOTHING. All International, National and Personal issues can be sorted out, if people start playing rather than warring. Coming back to you and the Boss, You can recognize that “I am disturbed” and go into silence. The experience of silence nullifies your negative emotions towards your boss. Then you can start loving your boss. You get back into life. Where ever you are, you will have a boss or a customer to be pleased. Why not please your Boss. Learning to Love is the next fundamental lesson to be learnt. Even if you leave the job, don't leave it out of frustration. You want to move on? Then move on thanking the boss and the Company. Keep your love intact The problem of Terrorism in the present world can never be resolved by seeing terrorists as bad people and thinking that we can solve it by sheer force. This only aggravates the situation. The solution starts by realizing that “I am disturbed”. We

58


“SomeBody is Disturbing me”vs “I am Disturbed”

have to go to greater depths of silence where I start experiencing “I am OK. And I am OK with them”. When I start loving them, I start seeing that terrorism is caused by their sense of inequity. Unless you develop empathy with them, you can not realize this truth. Solution is not by acting upon them in the state of “I am disturbed by them”. This is the fundamental of Diplomacy. A diplomat should have this capacity for silence and empathy. A person who has been overpowered finds his last resort in Religion and God. Lenin found that God was being used to keep people subjugated into poverty and communist revolution abolished Religion. Bin Laden thinks that Religion can unite people to fight injustice. He sets up Taliban. Once you are able to love the rebel, you open your gates to them rather than imprison them. India has solved the religious problem by opening the gate and appreciating other faiths. India has the most number of Muslims in the world and yet is the strongest power in the sub continent. Islamic Pakistan and Bangladesh are in tatters. Even Muslim Illegal immigrants to India from Bangladesh refuse to be deported to Bangladesh. The best solution for India to resolve problems with neighbors is not to spend huge amount of money and efforts to keep Pakistanis and Bangladeshis including trained terrorists, away by fences and military troops at the border. Simple solution is to open the border unilaterally. All those fed up with troubles in Pakistan and Bangladesh will leave the country. Pakistan and Bangladesh has to keep the rebels inside. Internally, Pakistanis will hate their own masters and rebel and leave for strong India. A strong south east union will evolve automatically. Americans don't have to invade

59


Live Life King Size on an Empty Wallet

Pakistan to secure Nuclear weapons. Pakistanis will themselves resist use of Nuclear weapons on India. Americans provided Pakistan with nuclear weapons to balance India in the first place. Policing by America can only lead to more disaster for itself. American policy of interfering with all parts of the world to keep supremacy and use of balance of power strategy to irritate strong nations by supporting weaker neighbors in remote areas is the cause for terrorism. Only by sharing and embracing people with love will provide security for America. John F Kennedy made America loveable. George Bush made America into a terror for its own people and for the rest of the people on earth. I am sharing this solution with joy for you to start playing. This is the WISDOM of the masters. Masters developed a culture of sharing, non possession, Love, Compassion, Non Violence, Simplicity and Freedom of Silence. Money and Power without wisdom leads to speedy doom. Contemplate: Others like to be loved and their small outbursts overlooked? Contemplate: Are you always perfect to expect perfection from others? Contemplate: Do you always understand to expect understanding from others? Can we be generous to understand other's cries, if we think that we are superior to others.

60


““SomeBody is Disturbing me”vs “I am Disturbed”

What have you learnt? “I am disturbed” not that others are disturbing me. Action to dispel my disturbance will cause more disturbance. I can get from “I am disturbed” to “I am OK and I am OK with the person and situation” by silence. Only inclusion, empathy and love can allow the other person to dissolve the difference. Use of force ultimately brings fear and turmoil for me.

Exercises Here are a few exercises for you to start playing again: 1.

Sit quietly observing things going on in a street or shopping centre without taking any sides. Just see the drama going on. Then observe what drama you are playing.

2.

Observe how you feel attracted to some and dislike to some. What identity of yours is making you feel this way? Can you just be with them as if they are innocent children waiting for love?

3.

Observe whether you are with the people around you the way you want or reacting to a past unpleasant memory in their presence.

4.

Include the person in front of you as the only person alive to be with you on the planet. See the wonder of the relationship that evolves.

CHAPTER FIVE Growing in Happiness is Growing in Silence 65


Live Life King Size on an Empty Wallet

Notes

66


CHAPTER FIVE Growing in Happiness is Growing in Silence My life took a 180 degrees turn as I recognized that "Silence is Happiness". I wanted more of it. I realized that effort is waste of time. "Life is Effortless" was the crucial central theme of Maharishi's teachings. His great book of "Commentary on the Bhagavad Gita" was a turning point in my life. Driven by this understanding and the practical experience of effortlessness in Meditation and the joy I received from it, I gave away my Ferrari and packed my bags to return to India. I was now travelling the reverse path when everyone was trying hard to get Visas to America. All my friends thought that I have gone crazy. My relatives were worried. My mother had no way to explain to them the joy of my being. I went to study under Maharishi to get that Pure Essence permanently. I was one of the most qualified students among the trainees for becoming a TM teacher. I enjoyed the silence and I also saw the fallacy of what I was doing that of trying to get somewhere. I soon dropped out of "getting Enlightened game". I got that there is nothing to get. This was later confirmed during my EST training in San Francisco in 1981. Life became just a play. Training directly under Maharishiji, taught me one more truth that "There is no end to work." The more you work there will be much more to work. Work is infinitely expandable and there is no end.

67


Live Life King Size on an Empty Wallet

Realizing the end of work is to be freed from work. No Work can be completed. You can end work by non working only. What you get out of success in work after a long struggle can be gotten instantly by Silence and Non doing. This is an experience of Enlightenment. Again due to years of habit in trying to achieve something, I would jump into some mission, some Vision, some great offering to the world. Maharishiji would ask me to take up a much bigger project than the one before. I did not see how I can take up a bigger project before I have even succeeded even 5 % in my last endeavor. I thought I am unworthily being promoted. I had mental quarrels with Maharishiji. He wanted to promote me to the highest level. He loved me too much. I was the brightest boy he had. I was a fool not to understand what he was teaching me - That of disregarding accomplishments but only being with the joy of playing a big game. I was not yet ready to be his successor even though he saw that in me. I had to do a lot of silence and grow and get my own credit card from God. He sent me to establish factories in India. I had negotiated with some of the biggest companies for buying out on behalf of Maharishiji. I had met most influential powers including Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. I was highly educated, young and Handsome. With Maharishi's grace all doors were open to me. I produced the first colour television of India in 1977 at

68


Growing in Happiness is Growing in Silence

Maharishiji's Veda Vision factory in Hosur Industrial Estate Near Bangalore. I also produced the first Sony Umatic video player with minimum parts from Japan. But my inclination was to learn more about silence. I had discovered what Maharishiji wanted us to discover that transcendental state every time in meditation. But Maharishiji himself was not clear on how to transmit the practice of Samadhi as a sure shot. I practiced silence for weeks on end. I never came out of my room for weeks. I lived on very little or no food. My whole mind would stop and formulating a thought was effortful. Spontaneously I had become a poet. Inner ecstasy expressed itself profoundly. I looked like a being from another world. Everyone fell in love with me. My child hood master Bhagwan Sri Visweswaraiah took hold of me and gave me all his love and care. I loved my Masters simplicity. He was deep in meditation for days and it used to take us several hours to get him out of Samadhi. I could not sit like him and I was too lazy to work hard at it. Gradually, I became unafraid of life. I began to understand Vedanta philosophy, I read all the Upanishads, Puranas, also learnt some important Vedic mantras. I gave up carrying Money. Slowly I was unmoved by any thing in the world. I had grown out of Karma or action and become a Jeevan Mukta (Liberated while living). I had nothing to accomplish in life. I was experiencing the goal of all accomplishments. I had attained peace. I had

69


Live Life King Size on an Empty Wallet

attained the first degree in Spiritual Science - we call it Brahma Gyana. What is that Brahman? Which is unbounded and unfathomable, undefinable, attaining which all is attained. I realize now that it is simply the SILENCE. The practice to move towards this Silence is called Brahma Charya. The goal of Brahmacharya is Brahma Gyana. Once you are able to able to abide in silence and see beyond dualities of right and wrong, you are a Brahma Gyani or a realized soul. With a sharp intellect and settled in Silence, you have a reverse picture of the world. All friends who support your Ego turn into enemies. All enemies who threaten your Ego become your greatest well wishers. You develop unbounded humility and freedom as a nobody not just as a philosophy but in actual practice. You can befriend the most downtrodden and see the great God in him. You admire such souls for their existence inspite of such suffering. They appear as greater Gods than Kings and Prime Ministers. You start seeing the world upside down. Most people in the world live like Human animals. Their holy concern is their family and mere propagation of the race. They worry about survival, job, money, economy, education, Marriage, promotions, Cars, Parties, and vacations. They have no time for silence. Death is their final silence. Once a person gets married they have to adjust to so many issues and satisfy so many people. Their life is only about meeting their obligations which they call as Dharma. So the Wise men called upon the youth to practice Brahmacharya - i.e. silence before marriage. Now a days

70


Growing in Happiness is Growing in Silence

Brahmacharya means only remaining celibate. The first education is to establish oneself as a Brahma Gyani who is beyond the perceived opposites in nature. Now, we have a Brahmacharya programme for youth and adults (married and unmarried) to become established in silence. This is a great luxury. The Guru provides you with food, shelter and spiritual education so you know how to enjoy life effortlessly. This may take four to six years. This is the first fundamental Degree one must get. It gets you wisdom versus mere application of intellect to be smartsmarter than others in competition. Nature is competitive and survival of the fittest is the rule. Any body living by this law is a mere Human Animal. Love, Humility, Kindness, Service to humanity are not teachable in the competitive world of modern universities. They only groom dangerous smart people who want to swallow the other. Only practice of Silence under a proper Guru can make you a Human being with Humanness, Divinity, steadfastness etc.. Only a Guru living in Silence can be the teacher. He can also guide the student in how to operate in the world by his example. The Guru is also well versed in technologies and arts. Only a Guru teaches how to convert technology into Art. Art is of the soul and technology is of the intellect and repetition is of the mind. Those who live by the mind are mere donkey workers who painfully go to work every day for a meager salary. Those who live by the intellect go to conquer

the world with new experiments. Those who live by the spirit enjoy what they are doing without being moved by success or failure.

Deeper practice of Silence: Level one: 1. Choose three days when you can get away and arrange for things to be taken care of without you. 2. Go to a monastery or a place for silence where you are provided simple meals twice a day. Leave your phones at home or switch them off. 3. Take lots of water and some lemon and honey to prepare your juices when you feel hungry. 4. Just take it easy. Lie down, stretch, walk lightly until you feel very relaxed. Do not get into any conversation with anybody. Do Yoga Asanas, Pranayam and Silence practice at your leisure. Listen to the body and relax after every stretch. Do not be in a hurry to accomplish anything. 5. Drink lots of water when you feel hungry. You have come here to fast. First day will be a trial. Tell your body that it is alright to be hungry and no need to worry. 6. Read uplifting books like the chicken Soup series. Again no need to rush. 7. After two days take some lemon juice. If very tired take it after the first day. More you fast the better but without any great pain.

8. On the third day afternoon take some light cooked food. 9. Do not attend to any thoughts that come and Go. Tell them that you will look after them later. 10. You will feel a burst of energy. Later half of third day go over the situations you have to handle in life. You will find very creative solutions in Silence. Do not be in a hury to implement them. Take a little more time and contemplate later before taking action. 11. Take a few week end sessions like above and become familiar with change of states. If an SSY center is available near you take the SSY lessons on Silence and the Science of Non Doing. Do three day Advanced Meditation courses and get 10 times more benefits with the group energy. Level two: These trainings to enhance the amount of love you carry requires sessions in a group. You will learn the science and art of being in Silence with others.You please contact a GURU who can guide you.Contact a SSY center nearest to you or go to the website www.ssy.org for more information and training for the next four fundamental educations.

What have you learnt? 1. Happiness is in silence and not in accomplishments. 2. There is no end to work. Realising that is a mini enlightenment. 3. Mere celibacy is not spiritual, moving towards establishing abidance in silence is Brahmacharya and the real spiritual experience. 4. Competition is the life of a miserable Human Animal. Until you experience “Silence is Happiness� you remain an animal. 5. A life in Liberation and freedom is the first spiritual degree called Jeevan Mukti.

Notes

CHAPTER SIX Winning the Golden Credit Card People ask me -"How can you live without Money? How will I purchase my Grocery? How will I pay the rent?� Then how do I manage in the world. I learnt a few rules for playing this game and I will reveal them to you. Rule 1: "I am not important." That means I do not take my life seriously. I am just a nobody and am a child of God. If I die nothing much is lost. This gives me the courage to wait until I am given food and I am given a shelter. So far I have not died. I stopped carrying money for the last 34 years. I have no hesitation to ask for help when I require money. I have developed a very simple life style. I do not have to show off. Anybody with me feels blessed to take care of me. I am looked after like a baby by all the Gods around me. I demand nothing, but I can ask for anything like a child. Rule 2:"I am the host and everyone is my Guest� I do whatever I can in any place to make myself useful and leave a mark.

79


Live Life King Size on an Empty Wallet

I feel that everyone is more precious than myself. I will give my best to the other person or persons. I place whatever God has given me at the time at their disposal. I feel it is theirs as much as mine. Nobody has plundered me so far. If some one takes away what I need, I can always beg and get another one. I have many people who want to give me what they have. I am blessed if someone takes what I have. I will get a new one. When I get many things, I give away as fast as possible to the one who needs it most. This way, my baggage is lessened and I have one more happy friend. When I go to any home, I ask if I can help in any way. I can cook for many people. I enjoy cooking and serving. Mostly, I am not allowed to cook as there are too many cooks around me. I start cleaning up the place where I stay. It could be a small home or a big auditorium. Everyone joins me happily. I also enjoy cleaning up streets and the Mayor of the Town joins me some times but certainly the Press comes running. No work is too small or too big for me. Whatever I am doing is wonderful happy time. I have learnt many trades, skills and enjoy building homes, Gardens, etc. I have not found any boring moments. There is always something enjoyable to do and share. I charge nothing for my services. I can always ask for

80


Winning the Golden Credit Card

donations for my service work. I account for all the Donations received. I take the most minimum required to do my work or service. I have authority over large funds but it is trust money for public service. I do not promise any payment to my students. I only ask them to grow to take bigger responsibilities for serving the people around them. This gives them access to large funds. The more I grow, the less I require to carry and use on myself. All my expenses are cheerfully taken care of by the people I visit. I have infinite calls from people who want me with them. Who does not want a free worker after all? I have plenty of wealth given to me and if I ask, I get almost any amount required for my work. I only take what is absolutely usefully utilizable. Rule 3: "I do not carry money or responsibility for accounting for them." This helps me not to think of accounts to be submitted. My mind is free for more creative things. I have an assistant sometimes who carries some funds sometimes. ATM's are now a day's available anywhere. I have lived as freely before their arrival also. The first person who is with me gets the money from whatever sources and relieves me of petty cash transactions.

81


Live Life King Size on an Empty Wallet

There are always so many poor people in the world who would like to carry cash and feel that they are rich. It is easy to find them. Rule 4:"I am zero always and can start from Zero at any time to build an Empire." My empire is solely the love account that I have built. Even if every material thing is taken away from me, I have no loss. I am happy that someone is willing to take responsibility for those valuable things. I am waiting for people to take way responsibly what has been given to me. The more they are willing to take away the more partners I have. "The more you give away the more you get. The faster you give away, the faster you get" This is the law. The more I am empty, the more opportunities I get to build bigger better things. Finding that person to give away is my problem. Some people came to me from the nearby village. They wanted more things done in the ashram for the guests. I heard all their requests silently. After they concluded their list, I told them to come tomorrow and I told them that I will give the Keys to the Ashram. They can take care and build all the things they had requested. Nobody came the next day to take responsibility for running the Ashram. Many Swamijis keep on fighting with their neighbors of their Ashrams. This is a waste of precious time and unnecessary for a renunciate. Renunciation is the biggest

82


Winning the Golden Credit Card

power in the world. Not holding on to anything makes you the richest person in the world. To not hold on to anything, you must first renounce all your identities through Silent Practice. Rule 5: "Name and Fame are deterrents to progress. Make yourself unknown." If you depend on Name and Fame, there are so many obstacles. Let me describe. If you are famous you cannot go shopping. People will mob you. You can not get down from your car and take a pee on the road. It will appear in News papers. You lose your basic freedom to go anywhere in the world and be with anybody. Fame is a big RASCAL. But most people who are famous are dying out of this but will not admit it. If you, the famous person is around, every one stops taking their initiative and you have a crowd of useless followers who live on you without doing any work. They require only you everywhere and parade you. To develop leaders around you who take on big responsibilities, you as a guide, should play low. It is leaders around you that count, not the million admirers. Now as I live, I get recognition from various sources even if you do not care for it. Then, how do I get rid of this burden of Fame? First of all I start doing the unimportant work like cleaning

83


Live Life King Size on an Empty Wallet

which important people do not do. I do not wear fancy clothes to attract attention. I have people around me wear better clothes than myself. I sit along with others on the floor. So there is no question of who is high. I have learnt to make another person around me more important than myself. All Swamijis and Political Leaders think they are important, so it is easy to get a person around you who adore being important. So, I offer them a chair and sit down myself on the floor. Everybody's eyes are on the chair and I become unimportant. President's Job in India is to go on giving various Honour Certificates. It is the most useless job. It is the Prime Minister who is relieved from this to do his most needed work. I carry on my Prime Minister ship without being elected or selected by anybody. I am the self appointed Monarch of the world. I am interested in everything but not fame.

84


Winning the Golden Credit Card

What have you learnt? 1. “I am not important”. 2. “I am the host and everyone is my Guest”. 3. “I am zero with money always and can start from Zero at any time to build my Empire.” 4. “I do not carry money or responsibility for accounting for them.” 5. “Name and Fame are deterrents to progress. Make yourself unknown.”

Appendix-I

About

Guruji Rishi Prabhakar Vedic scholars acknowledge Guruji Rishi Prabhakar as a Brahmarshi who has rediscovered the ancient knowledge of non-doing (Brahmagnana) after several thousand years. Brahmopadesam was the basic foundation of the entire Indian culture that was alive during the Upanishadic period 5000 years ago. This knowledge has gradually disappeared leading to general weakness of Indian society leading to invasions and conversions to Buddhism, Jainism and Islam and lately Christianity. The great Shankara Bhagavadpada brought back the culture theoretically by arguing against false beliefs and practices of Karma Mimansis, Buddhists and Jainas. Shankara's central theme of “Akarmaiva Mokshaha� (Liberation is only in Non doing) has been brought into everyday experience of ordinary individuals through the Siddha Samadhi Programmes (dwelling into deeper levels of Silence within) developed by Guruji Rishi Prabhakar. The Great Saint Sant Gnaneswar in 13th century gave the holy scripture of Bhagavad Gita to the masses by translating it from Sanskrit to Marathi. Guruji Rishi Prabhakar has given the essence of Bhagavad Gita as a self-verifiable experience by opening Samadhi to the common masses of India and around the world.

Guruji was a contemplative child. His sharp intelligence allowed him to earn a degree in Engineering before he was 20 under scholarship from the Government of India. He secured assistantship to study Aeronautics at Carleton University in Canada. He also earned the Master of Business Administration Degree from the most acknowledged University of Western Ontario. He was also a pioneer in IT technology and worked as a consultant to many departments of the Canadian Government. He returned to serve India under the guidance of the Great teacher Maharishi Mahesh Yogi whom he served as an International Director at the Switzerland head quarters for 2 years. Later he did intense tapasya (spiritual practices) under his child hood Guru Sri Visweswaraiah at Bangalore to evolve the Siddha Samadhi Yoga Programmes. He owes a lot of his teachings to the EST programme evolved by Mr Werner Erhard. Guruji is the image of the ancient explorers of consciousness called the Rishis. Awakened practitioners are applying his simplicity, availability and path breaking solutions in the fields of Health, Education, Management and Ecology worldwide. His important feats as an engineer are: Development of the First video Players in India compatible with the SONY Umatic. Development of the first Color Televisions in India at the Veda Vision Plant in Hosur, T.N.. He is an avid Architect and builds breath taking eco and prana friendly monuments.

Guruji is intimate with people like Sri Anna Hazare, Sri Sri Ravishankar, Sri Arvind Kejriwal, H'ble Dalai lama, many Jewish Chief Rabbi's, many Islamic Gurus. He works with and supports the work of Father Edwin on Neighborhood Community Net work which has won many U.N. Awards in bringing on a grass root participative system as an alternative to the present day Democratic system run by big people for big people. He is inventing many means to bring back the powerful Gurukul culture of India which was systematically destroyed by the British who made the richest country into the poorest country. He is always concerned about the welfare of the common man and the people who are born least fortunate. His Ashrams welcome all and provide a healthy place for growth for all. He asserts that there is no need for poverty and welcomes everyone to share his wealth and learn a king's way of living on an empty wallet.

Appendix-II Five fundamental Educations or Wisdoms of Life The more energy and vitality we have, the more the fun. Life is fun and this starts with Energy. A good car has lots of energy in its engine. All children have lots of energy and hence, lots of fun. We lose this energy and newness as we get ready to repeat things in a paradigm called DISCIPLINE. Disciplining seems to be the goal of all education. It starts with disciplining a child to attend school regularly. Then discipline her to sit still in cramped quarters in any school and avoid natural activities like moving or dancing. Restraining something natural is called discipline! The wild elephant becomes a domesticated moron full of fear. We adore a disciplined servant but pay him very little as he is disciplined to accept less money for more work. Gradually enthusiasm for life is slaughtered and we become armchair experts in television watching rather than in playing the game. We become spectators to artificial games and Olympics staged with great discipline by tired Olympians who are almost dead after their run. It is all a display of human exertion to beat the other person or the clock. It is not about friendship and love that it is meant to be. Energy comes from breathing fully, from stretching

rightly, eating rightly and thinking rightly. This “rightly” itself originates from SILENCE. First Education is learning Silence (Akasha Tatwa – space element- Sound - lesson of Freedom from boundaries): A car without brakes will continue to have accidents. When life becomes an accident for people, they start searching for meaning. Thoughts without brakes result in a confused mind. Management starts with managing oneself to be calm and undisturbed. Education in the Donkey world of effort is all about thinking while education in the enlightened world is about SILENCE. With SILENCE starts WISDOM. With thinking starts SMARTNESS. I understood this wisdom when I was doing an MBA in the best donkey management university in Canada. I was more broken than before I entered this donkey university. I packed my bags and left that country to learn SILENCE in India. I learnt how to be happy by 'Doing Nothing'. I enjoyed months of silence in my room without having to come out for months. I hardly ate. My body was in Samadhi and my mind was full of peace and my intellect stopped. I had gotten rid of much conditioning resulting from discipline. I could now sleep when I felt sleepy, eat when I was hungry not when it is 'time to eat' as disciplined people do. I worked on projects that had meaning and did not simply go to work on time because it paid well.

96


Five fundamental Educations or Wisdoms of Life

I learnt the Art of Indiscipline. I am probably one of the most fortunate persons in the world. Discipline is Rama. Indiscipline is Krishna. Everybody wants to be Krishna while they want others to be Rama. I had become a Krishna admiring all the Ramas around me who spent so much energy just to survive, even without happiness. I wondered how they can take all of this nonsense, this discipline. People began to respect me and did Sashtang Namaskar – complete prostration. I was flabbergasted. It is I who had to bow to them for all the great effort they were taking just to live. I was a free vagabond who deserved no praise. This surprised me. I enjoyed my life beyond belief. I loved everyone around me and secretly admired all of them. I had the company of Gods around me. My life was made. Most spiritual leaders wondered how I could enjoy life without any disciplined habits of eating, sleeping and working, which they practiced diligently, bound by regulations and traditions. I wondered if I was on the right path. But I was too lazy to follow any discipline and had to be satisfied with my indiscipline. I did not know that I have been awarded the highest of all degrees by God. I was a free Enlightened vagabond who roamed the world; I was at home wherever I was. I loved the people around me and they loved me like an orphaned child.

97


Live Life King Size on an Empty Wallet

I did not know I was their most valuable child. I never kept any money. My requirements were very simple and anybody would look after me happily. I never earned anything, I got it all free. I paid no income tax as I had no earning. I was free of manipulating accounts to pay the least possible tax like most people do. My life was tax free. Very happily, I gave all I could to make others happy around me. But I did not know they were never able to be happy. They had no knowledge of SILENCE, which I had mastered over the years. I understood and experienced that 'Nothing Matters' and that 'Everything is Okay'. I was awake in heaven while others slept tired with Discipline. My Guruji was highly disciplined, as I saw, and I always felt bad that I was unable to follow him. I did not know why he still loved me so much and gave me more respect than anybody else. I was his darling. Only later as I gained lots of energy, I began to realize that I am blessed. My confusion with discipline went away and I became bold enough to lead people to the ENLIGHTENMENT of INDISCIPLINE. Discipline only binds you to habits, traditions, past karma and bondage. I was free of this bondage by the pure power of Silence. I had the nectar of life. Don't be in a hurry. Everything is Yours.

98


Five fundamental Educations or Wisdoms of Life

Hurry makes for worry. Everything is lost in hurry. Take time to be SILENT. It is the best investment. You have to learn this science of Silence. It is the greatest secret as nothing can be said about it. Go to a MASTER of SILENCE. He is your first Guru in the five levels of GURUS. Learn the Art and Science of Silence. It starts with learning how to be truly silent in Samadhi for 15 minutes thrice a day. Later learn to be silent for 3 days once in two months. Then learn to be silent all the time after the awakening of true knowledge and being able to give up your fake dramas to look good, earn money, be important or attract sex. A car requires a steering wheel to go where you want it to go. If you have no wisdom, you run into trees. Wisdom and smartness are at loggerheads with each other. Most people use their smartness and not wisdom as they usually have none. To be wealthy, people work hard, think innovatively, marry a rich spouse or pray for a lottery. Some do not mind stealing as a way of life! Most rich people are swindling the poor knowingly or unknowingly. They think richness lies in bank accounts, GNP, profits, etc.

Real RICHNESS lies in your love for people. This is the second fundamental education (Vayu Tatva-element AirTouch- lesson on Leadership and Love- Kshatriya Varna).

99


Live Life King Size on an Empty Wallet

Money cannot give you a heartfelt hug. Only love gives you that hug. Earn love, not money. Spend money to earn love. Don't use money to manipulate others into surrender and call it love. Learn to love yourself. Learn to love the person next to you. Learn to love your job or learn to do the job you love with courage. Don't go to a job just for money, blaming GOD, blaming your Karma. Find a second level Guru to teach you about love and how to create a space of love which everyone loves. Then you have become a leader. How can you get ANYTHING DONE if you do not have a group bound by love? Management is all about preparing a group that loves and can move together with love towards a cause. The Third Education or WISDOM is creating WEALTH (Agni Tatva-Fire element – Sight - Vaishya Varna – Enterpreneurship). How can you be the richest person in the world without competing with anybody? You should learn to live happily without money. Make yourself useful wherever you go and people will look after you with love. You better start to learn many things the real adventure of life is learning. Learning something every day will make your life rich. Any child prefers learning about a new toy to eating a meal. Children are explorers. You too are that child who got lost in discipline and money.

100


Five fundamental Educations or Wisdoms of Life

Do a good job with love, money will pour in unasked. You don't have to earn. Things will be given to you free. Wealth comes instantly from SHARING. Share what you have with others who have learnt to share: you will start living in paradise. Learn to train others in sharing from a third level Guru. Learn to make others life rich. You will live in heaven, full of freedom, love and riches. The fourth wisdom (Jala Tatva- water element - Taste Sudra Varna- Creating Beauty) will make you world renowned. You will be able to create things so precious and beautiful like the Taj Mahal, as if God has been brought down to earth. The Fifth level of wisdom lets you convert a filthy place into a heaven for all (Prithvi Tatva- Earth element – Smell Asprushya Varna- Creating Fragrance). People around the world will worship you, for hundreds of years as if you are a Mahatma Gandhi or a Lincoln. Learning up to the fifth level takes constant penance for 48 years, like Gandhi did. Gear up for a life of wisdom. After many years of soul searching and research of the world, God gave me access to all five levels of training. You are welcome to learn and enjoy the rest of your life. We are all fortunate that we can be free, loving, extremely rich, wise architects of a beautiful world and yet be an undisciplined bum like me.~

Appendix-III

SSY – Siddha Samadhi Yoga The Science of Silence Yoga And Pancha Kosha Shuddhi (The Siddha Samadhi Yoga - for unique results in health education, career and personal relationships) The Science of Non Doing Our ancient Rishis had formulated a training called 'Brahmopadesam' which is the instruction into the science of non doing and the experience of stillness within and without. It dramatically alters one's outlook towards life and brings tremendous maturity in individuals. The precious knowledge is again being made available to you in all its purity and effectiveness by the grace of our masters in the form of the Siddha Samadhi Yoga (SSY) Programmes. SSY is non religious. It is taught in structured steps of fifteen 3-hour sessions. SSY is taught in many places in the world by teachers of Rishi Samskruti Vidya Kendra. What is SSY? How does it work? Siddha Samadhi Yoga is a practice wherein the normal discriminatory function of the intellect ceases. The result is a profound reduction in mental activity within minutes of the practice. One gets a deep level of rest through Samadhi Meditation which is the common prescription for all psychosomatic diseases..

103

There is a quick relief without medicines from chronic diseases such as ... Diabetes, Blood Pressure, Asthma, Arthritis, Insomnia, Acidity, Vertigo, Obesity, Hyper Tension and Heart ailments. How does it work? SSY works through Panch Kosha Shuddhi.(the purification of 5 body sheaths) Annamaya Kosha ( Physical Body thru Natural Food) This is about purification process of the physical body. All impurities at all levels finaly manifests in the physical body in the form of a disease. Food must be eaten in its natural or living state. The food we eat must be easily digestible and assimilated into the system without causing an overload to our digestive process. When food is cooked under high temperature and pressure, it looses it's nutritional value and becomes the cause of many illnesses and sickness due to the longer time it takes for the body to digest the cooked food consumed. This is avoided, when one eats lots of raw vegetables and fruits in their natural form. The goodness of the food is easily assimilated into the system when they are consumed in their natural form and so gets digested very fast by the system and does not take more energy from the body for the process of digestion. The food groups that can provide us with the highest possible biological value falls into four categories - fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds in sprouted forms. For optimum

About SSY – The Science of Silence Yoga And Pancha Kosha Shuddhi

health, restricting our diet predominantly to these four categories is a great help. Pranamaya Kosha ( Life Force body through Pranayama) This is about the cleansing of the "Life Force Body". 'Prana' is aliveness and disease means lack of life force or 'aliveness'. Pranayam rejuvenates the body and generates fresh energy. Normally, we use only 15-20% of our lung's capacity. But when one does Pranayam, this increases enormously. Our breathing becomes deep, slow and stable, resulting in the increase of life span. The Pranayam that is taught here, teaches the technique of directing the life force (Pranic energy) to various parts of the body. The effect of this technique can be felt immediately. After learning this, one can become their own doctor. Manomaya Kosha ( Cleaning Mind Body through Silence of Meditation) Meditation (Samadhi Yoga) is a scientific, systematic technique to improve body, mind, and intellect to realize the unity in diversity. Samadhi yoga is a purely Vedic technique. It has been enunciated in all the Upanishads. It is the highest and the simplest technique (rather, non- technique) for spontaneously realizing life as bliss itself. Some of the other advantages of samadhi practice (meditation as taught in SSY)

Ÿ

It is a very effective prescription to all chronic diseases like asthma, arthritis, epilepsy, hypertension, low blood pressure, diabetes, nervousness, paralysis etc.

Ÿ

It enhances creativity and intelligence.

Ÿ

It throws out all impurities from the mind and body.

Ÿ

It improves the memory power and concentration

Vigyanmaya Kosha (Intellectual body purified through understanding what is real and unreal) This is about purifying the intellectual Body. This is subtler than mind body. Intellect controls what the mind does. Function of the Intellect is to protect what ever one identifies with. If you identify yourself as an American, you will naturally do and argue everything to protect America. So also it is with other identifications like religion, profession, Family. Race. etc.. When you realize that you are a nobody, then you have nothing to protect. When there is nothing to protect, your mind gets rest. Otherwise, the mind is always active and disturbed to take actions to protect the identity. Most people, almost all the time, are living with a notion of some identity which they have made up and unreal. But they do not know the unreality of their identity or Ahankar. They continue all their life with this made up identity without ever doubting this unreality. They do not realize who they are as a nobody. Hence they get upset whenever their id is under threat as for example Russians are a threat to Americans.

106


About SSY – The Science of Silence Yoga And Pancha Kosha Shuddhi

In SSY, you are taught how to be non reactively be with existence. Soon the mind and body settles down and you start experiencing yourself as pure silence devoid of any boundaries. Your body sensations disappear and you have “No-Body”. You feel calm and happy for no reason. You are now in your original Self as an entity full of bliss. You have no enemies or friends. Only as an American, you have Russians as enemies. As a nobody, you are free of friendship or enmity. Now you are a universal person and can befriend anybody. This is the state of liberation beyond opposites like friendship and enmity.- good and bad.. Your intellect now works to protect everyone and is naturally unselfish and good. You do not have to try to be good. Your personality has been transformed not just improved to be a better American. Discriminating between that which is truthful, against that which will make it appear truthful clears the mind of tension. Most people have been conditioned into believing and acting from wrong knowledge. This ultimately hurts and imprisons them and others & results in the feeling of loss of freedom and boundedness. When one experiences the unbounded ness of the Self, they feel very free, joyous. Boundaries like being American restricts you and you are miserable and you do not know why? You feel that Russians are making you miserable and want to attack them. You have similar enemies out of your identity as a Christian or Muslim.

Getting rid of all ids as false both intellectually and experientially is the cure for unhappiness. SSY is the way to realize this truth. They realize their capacity to be able to do anything they want to do. The discriminatory function of the intellect ceases and one feels mental peace and quietness. Anandamaya Kosha (Cleansing the body of feelings through Egolessness like a child and attaining playfulness with nothing to lose and nothing to gain in life-Funclub) This is about the purification process of the "Joyful Mind". This is the body of egolessness. All problems ultimately start with ego- separating oneself from others and making oneself important over others. When one is given Brahmagnana through Brahmopadesa realising one's innate self as god and gaining unity with everything around them happens easily. This process also includes playing funclub with everyone, seeing them as the child of god. Life is Fun and we are here to enjoy the play. This is the final realization. Life is not about making money, working hard to succeed, Getting a big car or house or the ideal lover. Happiness is the starting point by going into silence and one's own Self by doing nothing. Happiness is not the end point after so much struggle. Happiness is along the way not a goal to be attained after. Being Happy for no reason is the beginning of life – called “Peace of Mind� thru liberation.

Miracles of

Non Doing in Education Effortless Superfast Learning with 100% Memory Students complete one year syllabus of most of the subjects in just one month at the summer camp itself. Demonstrated to and approved by chief minister of Andhra Pradesh and Education Minister of Karnataka. People associate success with working hard. The reality is contrary. Studying playfully is the art of Non-doing in studies. Once you make anything hard, the mind is automatically set to reject it. If something is made into fun, the mind automatically approaches it and has more fun. Role of a teacher is to make learning into fun. Then all his students will say that maths is fun. History is fun. Physics is fun. This is the difference between a great teacher and a boring teacher. I understood this principle and started working on making studies fun for children. If something is labeled as hard, then students get frightened to start with. So the mantra is always “It is easy�.

Learning small bits is easy. If big bits are thrown at the student, they find it hard and psychologically reject it as hard and never start learning. Many small bits makes a big thing and you start looking smart. If you feel the strain of understanding, you start shutting it down. Understanding is the first step in learning. If you have to remember without understanding, it is hard. Even if you understand, remembering large pieces is hard unless you start to use the power of your sub-conscious mind. Let me illustrate the power of your subconscious mind now in a few minutes. Now read the following small mantra 10 times. “Apavitrah Pavitrovah sarvaavasthan Gatopiva Yah Smareth pundareekaksham” Now close your eyes and repeat the same. Try again after closing the eyes. You find it hard or easy? Now I will teach you the same in the next few minutes using the power of your subconscious mind and you will repeat it effortlessly. Please take a few minutes to follow me. Repeat the following two words 10 times. “Apavitrah Pavitrovah”. Now close your eyes and say it ten times. It is easy, yes or no? Now read the following words 10 times. “sarvaavasthan Gatopiva”

Now repeat the same 10 times with your eyes closed Now read the following 4 words 10 times.. “Apavitrah Pavitrovah sarvaavasthan Gatopiva” Now repeat the same words 20 times with your eyes closed without effort. If you feel any effort, open the eyes and read it and then close the eyes until you are able to repeat it effortlessly 10 times. It may be boring at first, but you will be doing something which you could not do before using the power of your subconscious mind. Please do not proceed further without having repeated the four words effortlessly for 10 times with your eyes closed. It is easy. Follow the instructions in the previous paragraph until you get it effortlessly. It is very easy.. Now please read the following two words 10 times and repeat the same with closed eyes 10 times effortlessly. “Yah Smareth pundareekaksham”. Now read the following 3 times and repeat the same with your eyes closed 10 times effortlessly. If you find it is effortful, you open your eyes and read the same 3 times and then close the eyes and repeat it 10 times effortlessly. ““Apavitrah Pavitrovah sarvaavasthan Gatopiva Yah Smareth pundareekaksham”. Done it effortlessly? Congratulations. You appear like a genius. Keep repeating it effortlessly. Do not strain.

days effortlessly. You will have this mantra available to you effortlessly for the rest of your life. Even if you have completely forgotten it, you can get it back by just reading it three times or just once. Now you can learn the following mantra the same way by breaking it into small pieces at a time and repeat it ten times in a day. You will be amazed how smart you will be in a few months. This is the most famous Gayatri Mantra that has made all Indians the smartest lot in the world. “Om ..Bhur Bhuvah Suvaha..Tat Saviturh rvarenyam.. Bhargo.. Devasya Dheemahi.. Dheeyo.. yonah. .Prachodayaath” The meaning of the mantra is as follows; “Salutations to the effulgent energy that illumines the three worlds. Let that effulgence make my intellect expand.” The greatest wealth in the world is intelligence. That is what makes man superior to all animals. More intelligent you are the more superior you are. Wrong habits and understandings can make you look dull and be over powered by people with less intelligence but organized power. Soon the intelligent will learn the trick to defeat the less intelligent. It is like being caught by an elephant alone in the forest. But soon man learnt to trap the giant and make it follow his commands. That is why the small company Tatas of India has acquired the British Steel Giant after 60 years of Independent India. Intelligent India sent back the mighty British without a shot being fired by Gandhi and broke the British Empire. More than 40% of NASA scientists were Indian even though Indians were less than 1% of American population. All races of the world must learn the power of the Gayatri

mantra and elevate themselves in intelligence. Now you are learning the power of effortlessness. If you try to remember with effort, you will soon forget it. What is learnt without effort only remains with you. Most people remember their kindergarten rhymes effortlessly. It has been etched in the subconscious memory. In Education, training is more important than Intelligence. Training can compensate for intelligence. Nobody can formulate Newton's laws by themselves. But by learning about it from a book or teacher, you have borrowed Newton's intelligence. All trainings are simply borrowing of intelligence of great scholars. Training is not sufficient unless you remember what you have learnt. Most people forget very soon what they learnt. That means the training they got has been lost. They go on losing more and more until they have lost the very basic building blocks and they simply cannot even understand the final year texts if they were to read it after several years. Training is more important than intelligence. Memory is more important than training. And being able to recollect in time is most important. Most people forget everything when they are in stress like in an examination hall or interview. Practice of silence removes stress and opens the conscious and subconscious mind for memory and learning. We have adopted these understandings about effortlessness to Education. Now our students can complete their entire year's syllabus in just one month with 100% memory. Here is a letter from the Minister of Education of the Government of Karnataka, India.

115


Live Life King Size on an Empty Wallet

Here is a description of how the 100% memory training works for the benefit of all Governments, Educationists and Students. Why remember what you Study forever? You will be genius in your subject, what is the use of studying for 15 to 20 years with great effort and forget it all in just a few months. Why not put it in your subconscious memory? which is virtually infinite space and retrieve it effortlessly. You will permanently overcome fear of exams and remember effortlessly what is important.

Genius understands and remembers forever. Good students understand and forget. Poor students memorizes without understanding. This approach is not associative memory. Here, it flows effortlessly like Antakshari-like a mantra. Book after book can be mastered effortlessly. Process of Gaining Hundred Percent Memory: Students first understand the subject through a process called “EFFORTLESS READING� .Here they read the book like a novel rather than as a text book effortlessly. Then they re read the same several times with increasing speed. In about 5 hours, they would have read a 200 page book about 4 to 5 times. Only those students who have sufficient background to understand the text of the next year without assistance from any teacher is eligible for this process. That means, the child should be passing with at least 70% marks to be eligible.

116


Miracles of Non Doing in Education

Weaker students are to study lower standard text books first and master them before coming to the higher levels. Some children require a brief overview of the previous year text and the new text to proceed easily. Smarter students finish everything first and then can assist the slow learners later. Then they read chapter by chapter easily. After reading a chapter, they write down, the main points, sub points and sub sub points of each para as much as they remember leaving spaces for writing what they don't remember. Then they read the chapter again in 3 to 5 minutes and fill up more points until they have written everything they understand. Then they go to the next chapter until the whole book is finished. Then they proceed chapter by chapter to organize the material in a connected logical memory pattern and document it as a tree chart. This chart helps them to review the chapter in about 10 seconds. Human brain is capable of seeing a picture and recollect the content in a millionths of a second. Thus the whole subject of about 200 pages can be reviewed in about 2 minutes and the entire curriculum in about 20 minutes. By reviewing the subject effortlessly several times in a day for 30 days, the whole subject gets etched in the subconscious memory for ever and never forgotten. The speed with which they complete subject after subject in 3 to 4 days gives them tremendous enthusiasm to proceed further in a playful way. No strain is involved. Practice of silence makes all this possible.

Excellence of HMP students: Now students have all the knowledge at their finger tips for ever and look like geniuses and surpass the rest who have studied and forgotten the subject in just a few years.

117

Cure for Chronic Diseases Verified by Joint Director of Public Health, Karnataka.

Miracles of Non-doing in Health Cure for Chronic Diseases & Cancer Reversal of Heart Disease By Dr.Jagdeesh Hiremath, Cardiologist, Pune Hospital We started a program in Poona Hospital, which was entirely based on Siddha Samadhi Yoga. We accepted individuals who had developed some blockages in coronary arteries and for some reason or another did not want to undergo Angioplasty or bypass surgery. These individuals were made to undergo SSY training. They practiced Pranayam, Meditation and diet control very regularly. We realized that at the end of a few weeks they were now completely different individuals. Their hearts were open; their minds were cleared; they were not afraid of the disease any more. They were more fit than they were, earlier. All their clinical parameters also kept changing. The first twenty people were studied through angiography, to see whether or not there was a reduction in their blocks. Though we were quite sure that there would be a reduction in the blockages, to our surprise we could prove that 38% of the blockages were reduced and what we call reversal 4 Arteriosclerosis had occurred.

121

In a span of 15 months, almost 60% blockages had remained very stable. They did not get worse, which is a great achievement in this disease called Arteriosclerosis, which is a progressive disease and can get worse as days go by. So, arresting the worsening of disease in itself quite dramatically achieved by SSY encouraged greatly by the initial 20 patients, we have been practicing this line of treatment for over 6 years. We now have a statistical data of more than 471 patients. We have studied them on the treadmill, to see their exercise capacity. On an average, where they could use the treadmill for 300 second before the course, changed to 441 seconds after the course. Statistically, this is a dramatic improvement; almost 40% of the test, which was positive before became negative at the end of 6 months. Thus cases, which were abnormal to start with, became normal at the end of 6 months. As cardiologists, we advice our patients about diet and exercise and give them tough advice, about not getting tense and to remain relaxed in life. But, we are not able to teach them how to relax. Here is a health capsule, which I can prescribe very confidently to my patients. And we are sure that by undergoing SSY, all that we need to instill in the patient automatically becomes a part of his life. This stress management capsule, i.e. SSY, is a mechanism for relaxing and relieving tensions of the mind through Meditation, Pranayam and a realization of life. The fear of death, of disease and other fears that we live with just vanish once you start practicing SSY truly, regularly. And once learnt,

the improvement in

Personally, I feel that such a study is the first of its kind in India and the results we have obtained are far more dramatic than those published in any medical literature in the world. I do not want to restrict this course and its usefulness to just curing disease. I think we have to think of health in a very positive way. If we do it when we are healthy, we will achieve such a positive state that no disease will ever affect us. It is a remarkable preventive for disease

Dear Sir, A batch of officers underwent SSY training at our Bhadravati Centre. This training gave a unique experience to the participants who are the Management Trainees and employees. I, as the GM (HRD & A) also attended the training and found that the concepts were more applicable to the present day, *** that are infecting the employees in any organization. We bring forth in the various HRD training programs, the concepts of commitment, ownership of responsibility, without any mechanism for internalization. With the result any amount of time and effort spent is not bestowing the results that are demanded of a leader in the work or family environment.

129

The SSY programme brought out these concepts to our employees to stay as leaders and distinguish themselves from the past to what they are transforming. This is an experience with clear value/vision clarifications for acceptance and internalization by the participants. Apart from these concepts, the participants are given techniques of sustaining the ups and downs in their life, be it their working life or personal life. The training aims at the personal level rather than considering the significant others, thereby bringing out the uniqueness of the programme. Since all development is individual development, it is a unique understanding of the improvement of the self in contrast to the pious talks that we do normally in the conversational training programs. The management, considering all the above facts is encouraging the employees to join the SSY classes in large number. The benefits an employee derives is immense through the training. His transformation and growth today is of paramount importance to the management. We are encouraging employees to undergo SSY training and experience for themselves the benefits. May we seek the blessings of poojya Gurudev for the continuation of this movement in this great country.

SYMBIOSIS CENTRE FOR MANAGEMENT & HUMAN RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT (SCMHRD)

MY SSY EXPERIENCES This is the first management institute where SSY has been introduced as an essential part of the curriculum which factor is mentioned in the advertisement, prospectus so that no student feelscompelled to undergo this process. I myself went through the process. I experienced its benefits. I found it as a wonderful & scientific technique to destress one self. If practiced regularly, it prevents mental, physical & emotional stress. The second most important thing I experienced is that it clarifies who one really is, why one works, what is success, what is accomplishments, what is work, whether it is a means of life or it is to add meaning to life etc. Third aspect I would like to highlight is that it clarifies what is true “leadership�. We have so many consultants, professors and management experts, teaching us leadership intellectually. SSY process clarifies leadership is. This realization happens without teaching. The fourth aspect, which I could experience, is that it defines & give a new dimension to responsibility. On management, we talk about shared vision, mission driven attitude and team work, result orientation customer care and customer delight and so on without giving any clue how to make these happen in people.

I therefore introduced SSY in the curriculum. Students were skeptical, colleagues criticized, people watched. Today many professionals admire it. Many parents by seeing the changes in students did SSY. It changed the family atmosphere. Non-vegetarian changed over to vegetarianism. Most SCMHRD students-the alumni, are exceeding targets and are setting new performance standards in the corporate world. They can work free from holiday and 9-5 syndromes. For them work itself is rest and can do any work any time as required, leading to real customer care. SSY has been most important contributing factor for this king of transformational approach to grooming “inspirational leader executives� which is one of the many uniqueness of SCMHRD.
