Close your eyes and experiencethe Shiva inside you. Savor theelixir of Shiva Naam and makeyour life successful. The Anandor Bliss that you experience isnothing but your true form. Youare a divine soul. And a part of the divine Atma, which you callParamatma. It is also called col-lective consciousness is
If collectiveconsciousness is
, then you are a part of it. Daily take out an hour fromyour daily life and sit down at aselected place and relax. Intro-spect yourself and pray to LordShiva, whose constituent youare. Ask him, “Who am I? Whyam I sent to this planet Earth? Iwant to know…….” As I see it,all of you are Param DivyaSwaroop and Param AnandSwaroop. But the irony is, mantends to forget himself. Partly heis not to be blamed for this.Firstly, this is Mrityulok. Sec-ondly, the Earth cannot handleso many Shivas. It cannot handlethe collective aura of so manyShivas. Whenever a soul comesto earth it has full knowledge of its divinity, sanctity and power.Birth of every human being isnot without reason. He or shetakes birth to accomplish thedivine objective of Shiva. Youall have a divine purpose of coming to this planet Earth. ButMaya-illusion leads you astray.So when you sit down and intro-spect about your self and your identity, the knowledge insideyour Antarman and each of your cells called Intracellular Memorystarts developing.What is the difference between aman and an animal? Physicallythey resemble a lot. There isstark similarity between eating pattern and progression of life between the two. That’s wherethe similarities end. Man is not just worried about the familythat he has procreated. Instead heis concerned about the wholeworld. Wherever he sees some-one suffering he is eager to wipethe tears. He is compassionate.On the contrary, animal never disp;ays these attributes. It livesfor its own sake. Man has threetraits, Pashubhav, Manushyab-hav and Devbhav. Where asanimal has none. Probably that’swhy Man is called “Manav”meaning owner of Mann. Quiteoften man is gripped by Pashub-hav. In this state he becomesgreedy and acquisitionist and heleads Pashutulya Jeevan. Some-times he goes into the state of Devbhav. In Devbhav a personregards the whole world as hisfamily. He prays “ O LordShiva! Make me a medium of your divine tasks. So that wholeworld prospers. Loka SamastaSukino Bhavantu.” all of youmust once sit down, close your eyes and ask this question of yourself. Every one of you hasthe right to know the very pur- pose of your life. Upon learningthis fact a person can lead a ful-filling life. Those who are un-aware of this fact continue tolive like animals. Similarly youmist know your destination. Bythat I mean your destination inthis world and the destination beyond this world. He whoknows the answers to these factsis called Paramgyani. And the person not knowing the abovementioned facts is called Agy-ani. Krishna says, “ A Paramgy-ani man can seek me and anAgyani person cannot seek me.”And mind you Gyan is nothing but basic information about your own self !Aham Bramhasme means I amBrahma. If I am Brahma then asKrishna says in Geeta nothing isimpossible for him. Everythingcan happen according to mywishes. Then how is it that inreality my power is extremelylimited ? Despite being Anands-waroop, my bliss is short lived.Sorrows catch up quite soon.Shiva provides wealth to Kuber.And despite being a part of Shiva I am penniless. He is Ma-hamrityunjaya meaning the onewho has vanquished death. Thenhow come being a part of Him Iam vulnerable to diseases andeventual death. Either Vedicscriptures are not right or I amforgetting something. I need theknowledge that could lead me toAham Bramashme. Speaking of myself, I did not find this knowl-edge. It was given to me by myGuru Nityananda. Today I wantto give it to you. In order to ob-tain this knowledge it was neces-sary to bring to the appropriatelevel. Paramatma createdd man just like Himself in every aspect.He saw His own reflection inman. That being the case, why isit that man lived PashutulyaJeevan. The solution lies inShivatva. How can one reach upto Shivatva ? How can you
