Although I was the Prime Minister of the King and enjoyed the royal benefits of that office. he came to see me. It is embarrassing for me to write this. Over the past two years I have had many revelations about the evolution of my soul.

I also wrote sometime ago the following lines in response to those predictions. Ancient palm leaves in India that are in possession of some individuals unveiled my previous incarnations on this earth-plane. The leaves opened up a new world for me. As Agastiya.

I stayed here for some years and at other times. 24 The transition from a material body to an immaterial body is a fascinating experience. The appearance of Lord Siva in the guise of a human guru to initiate me was a turning point in my life. To use the terminology of physics. Nevertheless. the palm leaves maintain that I visited the earth-plane some 800 times. The Judeo-Christian tradition also has some reference to the relationship between the human and the Divine. The Agastiya incarnation is very interesting. I had miraculous powers to acquire a body and to dissolve it at will. They appear and disappear by their choice and by their power make themselves known to certain human beings. my ignorant mind and the torture of the five senses. In some incarnations out of the 800. I appeared and disappeared staying only for a few hours or few months. The leaves commissioned this guy by saying that he should seek me out and read my future to me. Enlightened—what this means is that the human is becoming the Divine. 25 .

Ramalingam was upset that his students preferred three meals and full gossip over the Light Body. when that happens. He woke him up. before he took off. I had a deep desire to know the dynamics of the material body turning into light. Both were fully realized beings and identified themselves with Siva himself. Lord Siva turned my body into light. Siva then left and Ramalingam’s body reverted back to its original flesh and blood form. It is interesting that the palm leaves have now revealed that Siva has indeed come to the earth-plane.

As a human being I am fully aware that I cannot manipulate this transformation. I was thankful to Siva for ending my karma and uplifting me to his level. It is important to note that these two purificatory processes are fairly difficult to accomplish by human efforts alone. One is the gross five elements of earth. toothache. I experience this human body with gastric troubles. However.. This time. the purpose of the incarnation was to systematically and experientially understand the transformation of the body into light. It is purely the decision of the Divine. I invite students to pray devoutly to Siva to descend into my body for the upliftment of the human beings on planet Earth. It was such a blissful experience. Ramalingam saw the splendor of Siva’s form. two basic principles are very important.Life Changing Mantras: Tools from the Other Side Section I—Siva’s Teachings: a Bird’s Eye View Preparing to Work with Sacred Sounds: Karma and Mantras My absorption into the image of Siva is very fascinating.

Vasistha agreed that the cow had tremendous power. and he distinguished himself in all kinds of martial arts and methods of warfare. He renounced his temporal power as king and decided to whole-heartedly pursue spiritual austerities. Visvamitra did not know what to do. Kamadhenu resisted the arrest and kicked the solders with all of her four legs! She magically flew into the air and descended upon the army. why bother with planets?” The answer to this question is: Thiru Neela Kantam is like your general physician. I recommend that you find out which planets are directly involved in creating financial hardships for you and do some remedies to change those bad influences. being the king of the land. Sit comfortably. This mantra was given to me by Visvamitra as a gift to be used in this age. Vasistha made it clear that the magical cow was not something one could buy and sell like other commodities. This cow was a gift that the enlightened Sage Vasistha received from Lord Siva after years and years of penance and meditation. Brzee Meditation In this meditation. The country passed through a very severe economic depression. Visvamitra thought that the cow would be useful to him to feed his people who were suffering from the drought. Visvamitra was a king who became a great enlightened saint. Story of Visvamitra and the Sage Vasistha When I was in India. we will place this sound in various parts of the body. Now.

focus on how you can best improve your finances: Just think about your finances all the time. All the time think about money. Just have a figure in your mind, some numbers. Say to yourself, “This is the amount that I want to make.” Keep on thinking about it. This is very, very important. The reason why we don’t have money is because we forget to remain moneyconscious. We are unconscious. It is a tragedy that human beings seem incapable of remembering just one thought. If you can hold onto a thought, whatever the nature of the thought, you are going to realize that thought. Finance involves goals and visions. Most people don’t have visions; they just get by. Visions have to be supported by practical data. Ask yourself some tough questions. “Am I too idealistic?” “Am I unconscious?” The moment you put your attention on looking at finances, ideas will come. Now of course, we cannot earn money through activities like stealing or selling drugs. We want to earn money through noble means. We must ask the Divine to help us and to inspire us with fruitful ideas. Techniques of Attraction I’m going to teach you two important techniques of attraction. It is very important that your eyes should be focused on the things you want to manifest. The eyes are very important organs in the thinking process. There is a saying in English, “Out of sight, out of mind.” So in order to have something in mind, you have to have it in sight. So do this: write on a little piece of paper whatever you want to manifest, and it should be very, very legible and put it up it all over the house. Go to the workplace, and then put it on your desk. You happen to see the figure, the numbers that you want to manifest. It will have tremendous impact on your consciousness. That’s one thing.
72

Picture Abundance Another thing that you must want to do is put up pictures representing financial abundance. Put up a picture of a money tree. The money tree goes back to the archetypal imagination of the human race. There ARE money trees in heaven. They are not just money trees, but these are trees which are capable of manifesting the things you want. These are called wishingfulfilling trees. In Sanskrit there is a name for such a tree. It is called, Kalpa Vriksha, the trees which manifest your desires. So, it’s important to visualize because the money tree belongs to the unconscious and the archetypal imagination. Emotional “Investment” Embrace the desired wealth with all positive emotions. If you do not have such strong emotions, you cannot manifest. Logic will not help you manifest; it’s only the emotions of the heart that will help you with the manifestation. The head is judgmental, whereas the heart doesn’t judge. Fantasize and Think Positive Have a wealth fantasy. Feel as though you are already living this manifestation, as if you have already manifested all of these things. Feel happy and satisfied with your manifestation. Go on doing the practice, using the mantra with visualization. Do not be discouraged if the mind gives negative signals. The mind may be saying, “Well, it has never worked. And it is not going to work.” Whenever the mind gives you a negative signal like that, you just say, “Shut up” to the mind. Some people ask me, “Is it okay to manifest what I want? Aren’t I supposed to surrender to God’s will?” I tell you, God wants for you what you want for yourself. His will for you is unending joy. God is not a kill-joy! Now, I’m going to lead you through a small meditative process, and first it is just a contemplation, and then you will add some chanting which will help you to manifest during this session.

Sit comfortably and close your eyes. Now think about your own financial situation. Think about the past. Have you ever thought about how much money you want to make? Just ask yourself. The answer will come. Now ask this question. Do you have a game plan to manifest that money? What are your responses from your own mind for this question? If you don’t have a game plan, can you think of one? Just think of one that can give you the amount of wealth that you desire. Manifesting Time Now another factor is time. How much time is needed to manifest this amount of money? If you think it is going to be too much time, think of another avenue that involves a shorter time to get to the goal. These are questions which you have never asked. If you had asked, probably they were superficial. You never sat down and asked yourself these questions with closed eyes.

Visualization of Lakshmi I’m going to give you another dimension, a spiritual dimension, to help you manifest wealth. Now stop thinking about the questions and just be with me. And I’m going to ask you to imagine certain symbols. Visualize the ocean. But this is not an ocean full of water, but an ocean full of milk. It’s a milky ocean. It is endless, with waves of milk dashing against the shore. It is so brilliant. It’s all white. And now you see a moon, a full moon, coming out of this milky ocean and shooting into the sky. The moon moves up and up and up into the sky. And now you find a white elephant, an enormous white elephant coming out of this milky ocean. And it walks on the milky ocean. And it comes toward you. And this white elephant goes into your third eye and becomes part of you. Now you see a magical white horse. This horse has wings. The white horse is coming toward you. It also gets into your third eye and then merges with you. And now, you see a money
74

tree coming out of this milky ocean. It has no money on the leaves, but actual gold. The tree with gold comes toward you, gets into the third eye and merges with you. And now you see the goddess Lakshmi, who is the goddess of wealth, coming out of this milky ocean. She is golden and carries two golden pots. And the pots are filled with gold coins. And she is coming toward you. She is emptying the pots of gold coins into your head. And then she gets into you. She merges with you. Chant the mantra: OM SHREEM LAKSHMIYAI SWAHA Visualize gold everywhere. Gold is the purest emotion of creation. Gold is the emotion of God. That’s why in every culture people have accepted gold as money. OM SHREEM LAKSHMIYAI SWAHA Just visualize abundant wealth, all that you want in your life. Just visualize with great emotion and joy, as if you have already manifested. It’s not that you’re going to manifest, visualize that you have already manifested. Whatever you wanted to manifest has already been manifested: the house, car, relationship, health, whatever you just want to manifest, they have already been manifested… Embrace this manifestation. Live through this manifestation. Chant: Om Brzee, Brzee, Brzee.

Chapter 3 Risk-Taking
Mantra: Trishulam (Pronounced: Tre-shu-lam)
f you don’t take risks, there will be no dramatic improvement in your life. Risk-taking ability comes out of your adventurous nature. Risk-takers are pioneers in their field and deal with the extraordinary. In order to develop a risk-taking consciousness, you need to develop a non-ordinary consciousness and courage. You change your consciousness by changing your thought patterns. You must embrace courage and risk-taking. What is important is outrageous thinking, thinking that is not of the normal nature. It is important to learn this. Courage and risk-taking go together. Don’t follow the normal path, the path of mediocrity. Seek the adventure of life. Take the express elevator. Think about your goal. It is very important to realize that you are different. Unless you conceive yourself to be different from other human beings, there is no way that you will become extraordinary. It is not just having a fantasy of success. Those who make it in life are not just those who have a fantasy, but those who act on a fantasy. Action is very important on this earth-plane. You have to act. You should not remain in a job you don’t like, or wait until you have enough money. Risk-taking means living the moment. Every moment is new. Time is of the past and of the future. Those who live in the present live in the NOW, which is eternal freedom, a field of all
76

possibilities. So it is important for you to examine yourself. Examine your path. How much risk have you taken? However, you should not close your eyes and get involved in some risky action. You must first find out, “What is out there for me if I take this risk?” It is always important to find out what the outcome is going to be. Depending on that answer, you take the risk or stay away from it. Now is Divine The NOW is the Divine moment. The mind has nothing to do with the NOW. The mind, in fact, is the anti-NOW. The mind can never exist in the NOW. If NOW has to manifest, then the mind has to demanifest. This is because the mind creates time—past, present and future. All these fall into the arena of the mind. But the NOW has nothing to do with the mind. The NOW exists in a timeless, spaceless continuum. It is, as I said earlier, the Divine moment which transcends time and space. One has to invoke this NOW within one’s self. It is a challenging task because we are not used to living in the NOW. We are used to living in logic. That is why we find it difficult to live in the NOW. But to live in the NOW is the only way to live the Divine. The Divine wants everything in the NOW. The Divine is capable of manifesting everything in the NOW. It doesn’t posit a future. It doesn’t have any sense of the past, any sense of the present. It is a blissful experience wherein you are able to manifest things instantaneously. And all of you know within the deeper part of your soul that it is true. Because you have lived it. Because this is your heritage. But somehow, the whole of humanity has fallen into time, and time is what makes things to appear in a linear sequence. We are creating a drama. In that drama, we want things not in the NOW, but in the future so that the drama can be continued. This drama is the drama of ignorance. It is not the drama of enlightenment. An enlightened person would not

and the impact of it will also be with ease. you begin to question whether what you’re doing it right or not. If I have to cancel a program. I integrate eventualities with ease. Now is Elusive This is an important part of daily practice to accelerate transformation. How do you live in the NOW? You just disorient yourself from all that is around you and then live in the NOW. When you get into the NOW. All these engagements were created by me. What happens is that when you are going to act out the future. And then there will be an integration of these two without conflict. That is why I created an email newsletter program for you to get out of your mundane awareness. I began to question the necessity for me to go to Chicago. But I fully take responsibility for having created it. We are fearful. The reason why the mind always feels comfortable visualizing things happening in the dim future is that the mind is conditioned by time. and I will be in Chicago for three days. Suddenly. I have to fulfill my obligations. Until you make this transition. I am not telling you to disregard your appointments or your logical reality. Logically it may not make sense to you. So tomorrow morning I may cancel my program in Chicago and in North Carolina. because the NOW always eludes us. One morning I was reflecting on the NOW. Those of you who have been close to me know that I cancel programs very often. So when you live in the NOW. But remember that everything that is around you is your creation. because to conceive of the future would be an insult to his own consciousness. you will understand that you have only to gain by moving past logic. I go to North Carolina and spend five days there. And I have my own reasons for keeping it or not keeping it. and nobody creates it but you. I have to be in Chicago. It is good. The choice is to live in the NOW and then make important decisions. because you have not learned to fully live in the NOW. you live in a different dimension. there is a possibility that I will begin a process of self-examination. you move into a sphere that is beyond logic. you have a choice. and then I have to be in North Carolina. The mind has the tendency to delay things for no reason. We are afraid because it is so terrifying. So it is important every day that you have to live the NOW for some time. including myself. Let’s say that tomorrow morning I have to go to Chicago. And you have NOW learned to understand that I do 78 it for my own reasons. And then from there. Everyone creates a future. and that is how I came to do this material for you. But once you get into the territory of the NOW. And the moment I began to question that. NOW. You want things to happen in the distant future. but when you live in the NOW reality.Life Changing Mantras: Tools from the Other Side Section II—Personal Transformation Program Chapter 3: Risk-Taking want anything in the future. Everything has to happen now and it is just a stupid game to prolong things. and then begin to live in the NOW. I begin to question if these events were required. Choosing Now NOW. because I act out from the NOW. you will do what you have to do. So far we know a way of life based on logic. You can live like a god or goddess. there are infinite possibilities. And then for a time. I’ll give you a concrete example. The advantage of being in the NOW is that it can speed up your progress. And for one minute as you read the email. You have to do that. you will be in a state of awareness in which you will see the two worlds. You should always evaluate whether you are living in the NOW. the world of logic and the world that is beyond logic. everything is possible. 79 . at this point. at every point. there will be no conflict. It doesn’t want anything right NOW or even tomorrow or even after a month. We do not want to enter into the sphere which is beyond logic. Remember.

Be Divine Today When you wake up in the morning. You embrace limitation. Reality is a realized fantasy. that transcends the conceptual constraints of the human mind. While you are still engaged in doing things which you have created. The day that your fantasies gain enough strength to become reality within your own consciousness. First. This happened in the life of 81 . Just float. And within the NOW. and the seed takes time to sprout. If you learn to float. Those who get paid on a monthly basis must wait 30 days before they get paid. Don’t complain about others. you are not stuck outside. You love to identify yourself with the human-ness. You are not afraid of a society which identifies itself with human limitations. Because you are not living in the NOW. God not only lives in you. And I want you to do this within the structure of the NOW. you become God. I want to be Divine today. because it’s the obligations you have set out for yourself during the day that cause you to act and follow a certain schedule. just float in the NOW. society is against that person. there are a lot of possibilities for you in this lifetime. not reality. The NOW has the energy to accelerate the materialization of your fantasy. things go wrong. Suppress the mind and then get into the NOW. Sometimes once in a day or many times within a few hours.” Then you will feel bliss. The mind says that NOW is fantasy. “God. And then it takes time for the sprout to grow into a tree. Then you will feel that every moment is NOW. Similarly. then there is no distinction between fantasy and reality. But the most important thing that the mind has to understand is that fantasy and reality are not very different. Fantasy is phenomenon not yet realized.Life Changing Mantras: Tools from the Other Side Section II—Personal Transformation Program Chapter 3: Risk-Taking Accelerate the Materialization of Your Fantasy Everything on this earth-plane takes time. Most people get paid either weekly or every other week. If you have to complain about someone. we are able to get into the NOW. It is the Divine right for every human being to be able to live spontaneously in the NOW. just get into the NOW: 80 “I am in the NOW. Don’t complain about destiny. This is also true with the money situation. But you refuse to accept that. that transcends logic. and I can live afresh. That’s the bottom line. the growth of a baby into an adult takes time. It is your own action. And it doesn’t cost you any money to live in the NOW. I don’t want to be human anymore.” Be without obligations just for a few moments. Don’t complain about anything. complain about yourself. Give me an opportunity so that all things can be changed. within the Divine moment. It is your own mind that you need to control. but what I want you to do as you wake is to say to yourself. Introducing a concept like NOW is alien to the mind. Only when you feel that you are stuck. Do not carry anything very deep within you which creates time. Many years elapse between the time that you sow the seed and when it becomes the tree. So it is terribly important that we live in the NOW. If you are not stuck inside. it makes the mind uncomfortable. we will challenge everything that we have created for the day. So you always have to get into the NOW in order to accelerate the process. Just float. then you create the outside. others get paid on a monthly basis. You sow a seed. God lives in you. So you have to make every fantasy of yours become real. Then you will not feel that you are a victim. You are going to follow a certain schedule. Then the fantasy gets realized soon. You are afraid of de-limitation. And you will begin to celebrate life. you feel that you are inside within your mind. And if someone calls himself a God. Make use of the Divine moment to conceive of the fantasy. It has a Divine energy that transcends time. And when you live in the NOW.

God switches back and forth between thought and object with utmost ease. then the disease which was created in the past disappears. So. This is one of the many calls that I receive: ‘Sri Siva. Continue to play the game. We need to create an action and wait until it is complete to manifest things. It is not only the brain that thinks. What do you say? Can you get into a Divine sphere and tell me whether this person is out there for me? When am I going to marry him?’ And I tell say. You can cause the body to live in the NOW as well. they lose interest in the old concept. This is called manifestation in the NOW. But. However. The cells are also bound by the concept of time. One morning I received a call. Be Like God God manifests things as soon as the thought comes into His mind. you can effect a lot of changes in your life. Now You Can Make Changes Yet the Bible says that God created man in His own image. being conditioned by the body-mind. We can learn 83 . and it has caught hold of an idea in the past.’ Your consciousness is full. It is completely full.Life Changing Mantras: Tools from the Other Side Section II—Personal Transformation Program Chapter 3: Risk-Taking Jesus when Jesus started calling himself God. For human beings. Remember. Your ego is responsible for the separation between you and God. You can diffuse your diseases because a disease is something of the past that hangs on to the body because the body is in the past. The moment you bring in the energy of NOW. It is beyond happiness or unhappiness. that once you get close you may not even want the experience. The cells also think. the requirement of an action to manifest material reality appears to be redundant. So play games. God? Where does He live? How can we learn this technique? God lives within you as the non-ego consciousness without any identity whatsoever. The cells must think: NOW… NOW… NOW… NOW… NOW. Ultimate happiness is the realization of the soul’s true nature. it is your decision. The body has to live the NOW. It is bliss. But without playing games there is no life. manifestation of desired objects is a complex process which does not happen in the NOW. and they will begin to live in the Divine energy. If you want to marry him. or we have to borrow from someone. When the cells pick up the NOW. it clings onto the idea and lives that idea of sickness for a certain time. However. you are seeking some experience. Once the body begins to live the NOW. The same thing can be applied to relationships. Every experience is a game that you are playing. The body cannot move. but no experience is going to give you ultimate happiness. am I going to marry this person? My heart is drawn to him. But you can educate the body to diffuse that idea by diffusing the concept of time. It is a simple and joyful process. All that you need to do is get rid of your ego. Because of the material nature of the body. if we need money we first need to create a job or business to generate income. It is not his deci82 sion. For instance. but play intelligently. you should not make your life’s happiness dependent on anything other than your own consciousness. How the cells of the body can be trained to remain in the NOW. Go and have that experience. Who is this guy. then marry him and have that experience. People stoned him because it was blasphemous to equate oneself with God. In God’s consciousness the thought and its object exist in blissful union. Everything is a game. ‘Look. one thing you must understand. So you have everything within you. but play it well. and not a very uncommon call at that. people have to be systematically taught how the body can live the NOW. It doesn’t need any experience whatsoever to make it happy or unhappy.

Sigmund Freud discussed this issue in his writing. and in my opinion. it is God’s gift to humanity to help us.

Right I have already explained there is no Mr. and it is terribly. you are going to manifest it outside: “The guy is going to leave me if I don’t lose weight or do a face-lift or re-shape my nose. If there is one principle that I want to emphasize for success in your life. The bottom line is that no one wants to be controlled. How important is that in your life? Can you live with/without relationship? These are questions that each individual has to answer for himself/herself. I have advised a lot of insecure guys who go on buying gifts because they fear that the girl is going to leave and that is not right behavior either.Life Changing Mantras: Tools from the Other Side Section II—Personal Transformation Program Chapter 7: Relationship on the meaning of the Moon’s Nodes. in the fourth house.

Finding a “Perfect Relationship” Remember. Interpersonal Relationships and Success in Life Vedic astrology is deep into relationship compatibility which you can check before you get involved. there is nothing called a “perfect relationship. The idea of the prince showing up in a chivalrous fashion and marrying the girl and living happily “ever after” is ingrained in the consciousness of many women. but for yourself.

you don’t understand what is happening now. You say to yourself. Every moment can open to a new reality. Or. Every moment is new. To use religious language. Every human being has gone through millions of lifetimes and several millions of relationships. And then you will find that things do change. The bottom line in learning to create a good relationship is that you should not carry on your judgments about the other person. You want to make sure that you don’t even see your spouse’s/father’s/mother’s/children’s face(s). One or many of these categories may be contributing to the relationship failure. you may be involved in an abusive relationship where you hurt each other on an hourly basis. Or. You cannot change the other person. And even if that person is a scoundrel. Then you not only pretend but you believe that it is true. As far as you are concerned. He/she has to come to avenge you. Before your mind responds. relationship is karmic. You can only change yourself. You exchange dirty looks. you are going to be friendly. And then you go on with your life.

Getting to the Root I want to emphasize that behavioral problems need to be dealt with not at the symptom level. Do a self-analysis of your own behavior. the fault may be largely the other person’s. you don’t want to leave and start another nightmare. They speak the truth. and you are not going to be judging.

Behavior is the manifestation of a cause. So. You may ask me. your body and “heart” respond. You may think that if there is a change in the finances/career/social situations/new people in your life. However. For a few years. although outwardly you pretend to be acceptable and kind… Your body is more authentic than your formal behavior. look at the planets that govern your relationship with your mother/ father/siblings/spouse. “What if my gut feelings always say negative things?” 132 There are two answers for this question. and you should be willing to look at that person in a different way. that will disappear in the next moment and then you are open.

Venus Venus is another planet that is directly related to relationships. Venus particularly creates romance more than sex. Between Mars and Venus, Mars is associated with sex, and Venus with romance. Venus energy is very active on Friday. This is the reason why lots of people go crazy on Friday evenings. The romantic energy of Venus causes you to blindly fall in love, without scruples. It is only later that you understand your mistakes. Most of teenage love is caused by Venus. Venus energy leads to lots of partying, movies, wine and beer. Passionate love feeling or passionate separation are caused by Venus. The planetary goddess for Venus is Lakshmi. You can propitiate Venus and Lakshmi through the following mantras.

One, to get a Nadi reading for him. Two, take him to the doctor for a physical. The Nadi reading came back and said that the boy will have some life threatening periods. One would be at the age of six and another at the age of 18. A few remedies were suggested. I personally got involved and saved the boy’s life. I am not too much interested in the medical part of his life. So I won’t discuss it here. Apart from mantras, numbers do play a great role in influencing life.

life energy. Here on the East Coast while I am writing this, the weather is as lousy as can be: freezing rain, bitter cold, piles of snow on the road. Think about the power of eight! The number eight represents difficulty in general. It also obstructs the life process. With the number eight, life itself is in danger. Saturn and the Number Eight In Vedic astrology, Saturn is represented by the number eight. He both promotes and destroys life. Saturn and eight could some good for some people. But for most people, the number eight represents difficulty and obstruction of the life energy. I recommend you avoid the number eight when possible. This applies to travel plans as well. When planets travel through the Eighth House, there are problems. For example, don’t make appointments at 8:00 o’clock; make them at 8:05. If the Eighth House is damaged (or afflicted) in a person’s astrology chart, the life of the person may be short. The Eighth House will also indicate a person’s losses, difficulties and problems. When a planet goes into the Eighth House it becomes weak. When a free flow of life energy is obstructed it creates the following: 1. Depression 2. Diseases 3. Low Income 4. Loneliness 5. Abandonment All these negative qualities can be diffused by one mantra: Mrtyunjayaya namaha. Mrtyunjayaya namaha literally means “I bow to the conqueror of death.”

Obstacles and the Obstructions of Life Energy What is an obstacle? An obstacle is something that was hidden initially and shows up later. To illustrate this point: you start some action, you have some plan, and then following your plan you start that action. But as you are progressing in action you find obstacles. These obstacles are unforeseen things that arose after you started a project. Why did you not foresee it? Because of the inability of the human mind to foresee everything. You can, of course, foresee certain obstacles, but not all of them. The whole of human life has been spent in trying to discover obstacles which lie in the future, and then trying to figure out what to do to remove the obstacles. The whole life or many lives have been spent in trying to discover obstacles and overcoming them so that the future generations are able to benefit from it. In other words, the whole human life revolves around finding obstacles and removing them, and this is what life is mostly about. Ganesha, Eldest Son of Siva: Remover of Obstacles Ganesha, in Hindu mythology, is the eldest son of Siva. He represents an intelligence far beyond the reach of human intelligence. He is called the Lord of Obstacles or the Master of Obstacles. The study and understanding of Ganesha gives a different perspective on the whole concept of obstacles. Being the Lord of Obstacles, being one who has mastered the consciousness which gives an understanding about obstacles, Ganesha knows right at the beginning where the obstacle is. In fact, Ganesha’s intelligence has the ability to foresee all obstacles whatsoever. That’s why when you want to start a project, just go to Ganesha or invoke the energy of Ganesha. His energy tells you where the obstacles are. It tells both the conscious mind and the unconscious mind so that you do not waste your time in going through the obstacles. It is intelligent to avoid obstacles right in

the beginning. How does Ganesha do that? Because his intelligence can foresee what is out there in the future. This is the whole secret of invoking Ganesha’s consciousness at the beginning of a project. Symbols of Ganesha Ganesha has a certain mythological form; he has an elephant head and a pot belly. He rides on a mouse, and he has four hands and a third eye. His form may appear to be amusing to you by human standards; however, the form has a deep symbolic meaning which you cannot figure out through human intelligence. His form has a Divine power to remove obstacles. Just contemplating Ganesha’s form will accomplish this. Some people may want to put statues or pictures of Ganesha around their house or in their meditation area. Ganesha’s form was designed exclusively by the Divine to remove obstacles. This archetypal symbol addresses the unconscious energy in your being and works at a very deep level. There is a beautiful book, Loving Ganesha, by Satguru Sivaya Subramaniyaswami for children and the young at heart. For those curious to learn more about the mythology of Ganesha, there is another book, The Broken Tusk by Uma Krishnaswami. Gum is the seed syllable that vibrates with the energy of Ganesha. As you begin to have this sound in your consciousness, the unconscious mind recognizes the sound that is the intelligence of Ganesha. That is how you access the understanding of removing obstacles and finding shortcuts. Ganesha is the god who removes obstacles, so to recite his mantra will invoke this obstacle-removing aspect of the Divine in a powerful way. Many people like to use this mantra for a bit at the beginning of a meditation session or at the beginning of a project. This recitation is for removing obstacles (physical, emotional, mental, financial, spiritual).

Mantra: Om Gum Ganeshaya Namaha (Pronounced: Ohm Gum Guh-nuh-es-shi-ya) (Please refer to the earlier meditation techniques.) While chanting Ganesha’s mantra, specifically ask him to remove obstacles. Meditation on the actual form of a deity is very important. When you focus on the form of a deity, you imbibe the powers of the deity. Look at a picture or statue of Ganesha or visualize his form in your own mind. This has a tremendous amount of power. Meditate on Ganesha’s form with a feeling of reverence while repeating the mantra.
How to Talk with God We live in a world where science alone is “the truth.” We have lost touch with nature and with God, so it has become very difficult for human consciousness in this age to access the energy of God as easily as our forefathers did. This is a sad state of affairs—that we have lost our emotional self, our self of faith. Ganesha’s picture or statue can bring him right here—it is not superstition. It is tremendously powerful. Yogananda has a small, but delightful book which you can buy very inexpensively. The title of the book is, How to Talk With God. This book begins with the affirmation by Yogananda that talking with God is a definite fact. He goes on to say that God is not just abstract; He has a form as well. The Bible says, “God created man in his own image.” Therefore, if God had a form, it was like a human form. So for successful meditations, it is important to visualize a form.

The Moslems think that there is no God but Allah. no doubt. We are still in the process of finding out more things.

I have tested the value of the sounds in this book over a period of two decades in this lifetime and know first hand that they work. At a very deep level of the language (prethought level). I have put them into CDs and videotapes. he or she has prosperity sounds in the brain/mind complex whether from this lifetime or an earlier one. his brain/mind is ingrained with poverty sounds. meaning merges in with the sound in an emotional-ideational complex. If you pull out language from our mind. I have a new view of the brain/mind domain. if a person is poor. And of course. “What is mind?” Language is a combination of sound and meaning. happiness and enlightenment. This tradition goes back to Lemurian 219 . Changing the mind then involves changing the sounds within the mind. Right now it is only theoretical and mathematical probability. I want to be very practical and will give hands-on technologies. The destiny of Science and Technology in the new millennium will be in this direction. it is a higher science and a higher technology that will find a practical application of Einstein’s theory of relativity. the CDs. In fact. and I will be with you through this book. not just wealth. I define stupid thoughts as: Unproductive bio-energy that creates unrewarding. between spirit and matter. Conversely. the bottom line contention is that if a person is rich. as I cannot travel to every city and speak personally to all the people I would like to help. This higher intelligence is not carved in logic. But you can do homestudy with enlightened tools. I am hopeful that many of you reading this book will use the tools and experience incontestable. We will know the clue of how we can make this conversion. unproductive. This is a rule of thumb which applies to every area of life. The brain/mind of these people are producing stupid thoughts nearly in the range of eighty to ninety percent. we may buy sound software to enhance our mathematical skills or athletic abilities. For now. and I have modernized it for our contemporary use. the videotapes. We do not know the methodology by which we can convert energy into matter or matter into energy without a lot of destruction. I can get into a very complex and complicated discussion about it. and any other products I devise in the future. Once we know how. Right now the brain/mind domain for most people is at the lowest level. but also health. Currently the brain/mind domain is full of Bio-energy fields with dominant signals of poverty and pessimism. I want to maximize the ability of the brain/mind domain. This is the easiest way to share them with large numbers of people. I visit people on the dream plane and am always available for instant contact inwardly to sincere seekers. What is going to give the world happiness is a new technology. the foundation for this new science and technology will be based on practical wisdom that has come to us through the Siddhas of southern India. positive results. there will be very little or no mind at all. commerce and politics. my theory is very old. This book is based on this Theory of Mind: Ninety percent of our mind is composed of language. As I have said before. we will have infinite freedom. I will play my role in giving to this new technology to the world and this new science that will make our lives easier. This theory could have great impact on education. and destructive thoughts. This new technology will use a higher intelligence. Our next question is. So. 218 The New Technology Will be Based on Spiritualizing Matter and Vice Versa At some time in the future. But that is not my intention here. This new technology will give us the missing link between energy and matter. We have to stop the brain/mind from producing stupid thoughts.Life Changing Mantras: Tools from the Other Side Section III—Other Tools Chapter 17: You Do Not Have to be Hindu to Use This Material Why do we have to pay attention to our mind? It is through our mind and intellect that we have evolved from ignorant conditions to intelligent life.

” The historians wonder if they are all really by Agastiya or interpolations of other texts. Back to the Future You won’t have to sweat so much. “if Jean Dickson could do it. and yet the Tamil of each is “contemporary. We all know that our modern science and technology is only a few hundred years old. You can make connections with the crystal. All other sciences. The message for the millennium is that we need to go to the past not to the future! Not the dim past wherein our consciousness was polluted by logic. it gives you a sense of false happiness. everything is relative. The historians get confused about the works of Agastiya. Even with our laser surgery. Seldom do we understand the freedom that can happen if you follow other principles. I don’t rule it out. The life of the spirit is virtually non-existent in their lives. We will have to drop off a lot of our mental constructs. we have not eliminated suffering. they are timeless. and then you can use the crystal to see the future and other extraordinary things. is much more intelli221 . We have come so far to disbelieve anything that is not strictly limited to a material description and finite experience. For me. they look at the numerous volumes and volume attributed to Agastiya. The question for us is to ask. Within these few hundred years what we have done is to understand the laws of nature and to develop a science and technology that would appear to benefit our lives. so that their text will carry some weight. It makes tremendously sense to us on a theoretical level that energy or spirit is much more desirable. However. We are finding it difficult to deal with the process of aging the pain created by matter. Jean Dickson had a crystal ball that she looked into. It may have happened in some cases. The ball showed her the future. and every time you fall prey to this false sense of happiness. I was reading Jean Dickson. and it is important that we have to stop here and analyze if our attitude to life and our approaches to science and technology have given us happiness or suffering. material principles. there is a price we pay—we are sucked more and more into material laws. still we have to go through surgery. more profound understanding. It may or may not work. the missing link. all other technologies will be open to revision as we incorporate a new. in order to understand this higher Science. and during each time period he revealed a knowledge. They are all written at different time periods. but then it is also true that Agastiya himself reincarnated several times. We have not created anything perfect. He records the predictions made by her. negative vibrations that create doubt and so on. The crystal is an energy vortex—it can carry and be a medium of great electromagnetic power. Matter has dual consciousness: one is tremendous power to allure. The Siddhas have existed forever. It is not convincing for the scientifically-oriented to naturally believe in God or Spirit. We have to revive that science because it is truly going to give us infinite freedom.Life Changing Mantras: Tools from the Other Side Section III—Other Tools Chapter 17: You Do Not Have to be Hindu to Use This Material times. and he used the contemporary Tamil of that time in order to communicate to people. the principles of the spirit. They wonder if other people wrote something and then later said this was written by Agastiya. Now I am referring to this because what is going to be created is similar to the crystal ball. that is between matter and energy. metaphysical principles. but a more ancient past of very ancient wisdoms. 220 Crystal science is a science that belonged to the older civilizations. These literatures contain the clue. Agastiya whose incarnation I am in this lifetime has incarnated seventeen times. seventeen times or more. why not others?” Is there anything special within the brain of Jean Dickson? Apparently she had the ability to connect with the crystal ball. and a guy who wrote the book on Jean Dickson had been a newspaper columnist. our physical laws.

Einstein. the Tamil Siddha. The new technology that I am proposing will give us an understanding about the domain wherein mind and matter meet. You put a dot. bondage to a frozen concept of time which uses the experience of the past. and when it unmanifests it becomes energy. and the future. Material existence is defined by a low level of intelligence—bondage to certain fleeting sensory experience. very close to my heart. My disciples in that lifetime did not like it. In a previous lifetime when I was Swami Ramalingam. It means you create something. The Science of Sacred Geometry. He speaks like a mystic and knows where discursive reasoning can take you to and he often says that “I don’t want to go further. Now they are two separate worlds connected only very. belongs to the old world. This is very. These are all hindrances to understanding the divine intelligence. I want to repeat this: the new technology pertains to the domain where mind and matter meet. again. but matter is stuck in one place. when he describes light and matter. I have characterized the nature of the higher intelligence. we can evolve matter or spiritualize matter so that matter rises up to the level of the spirit of the level of the mind or the level of energy where they can be together at a manifest and an unmanifest level. they thought that I was deep into my ego. We have not understood the meeting ground of the two because matter is so gross and slow and the spirit or higher energy is so fine and swift that it cannot be localized.Life Changing Mantras: Tools from the Other Side Section III—Other Tools Chapter 17: You Do Not Have to be Hindu to Use This Material gent than matter. it cannot be analyzed any farther. My evolution was such that even the divine beings were afraid of my evolution. I have characterized them. Plato described many solids and liquids through geometrical figures. had great mathematical understanding and was a scientist. I was able to demonstrate to myself. When it manifests it becomes matter. In the Siddha literature they describe Bogar’s attempt to build a ship propelled by steam. Remember. and before then. but we haven’t done anything to understand energy or to understand spirit. to my spirit and to the world at large that I could transform the various layers of my body into light molecules and then ascend into the sky. I am teaching you do not need to be Hindu to use the tools to 223 . I was reading Einstein’s original writings. Now Einstein. It is a tremendous statement. for instance. very superficially. we have to stop it here. It is form being formed out of non-form or chaos. present. Yet. There is a lot of literature available about him. I even challenged the Hindu gods during my lifetime as Swami Ramalingam because what I was teaching people was to focus just on Light. says that when light is stopped it begins to coagulate into matter. 222 Geometrical Origins Geometry explains the origin of things. The understanding of geometry will provide us tremendous clues about understanding the relationship between matter and spirit. And here again.” Now light coagulates into matter and during the coagulation process what happens is that light becomes dim to an extent that it looses all its radiant energy and becomes a gross manifestation. somebody told me. The Siddhas went one step further and came up with many geometrical shapes that link matter and spirit. so it seems plausible to me that Bogar could have been Einstein. there was nothing. this is from a very ancient literary source. Some of these geometrical shapes have come down to us as yantras/ Divine Intelligence What really excites me is to be living at this time when we can provide new spiritual technology to this world and raise it from its bondage to material existence. nevertheless they were afraid of me because of the body that I had gained which was just a luminous body with no substance in it. This makes sense to me because Bogar. It is everywhere. was the Tamil Siddha Bogar in a previous lifetime.

DC is a power spot on this earth-plane which affects the destinies of many countries. and I am excited that we have computers and that the sciences have also evolved. but what is there instead is a well inside the pool. He explained actually that there is no pool there now because people have forgotten the tradition. Arut Perum Jyoti. the government people. I managed to get some water from this well and pour it on my head. And if you are religious. I am thankful that so many more people seem receptive and this understanding and are more developed. and a technology of a new nature that is going to revolutionize the entire world should appropriately start out of the United States. I went into a room and said that I would be in divine communion with the light. And so it happened. I will do my part. I said I would get the light into the bodies of everybody because my intention was to give my evolution to everyone so that they could participate in the Intelligence that has the clue between matter and energy. I have come back now. I am wishing you well in your Self-Discovery. I am making this openly available to sincere spiritual seekers everywhere. Washington. During a Nadi reading in this lifetime. but in this life. Some of them may have lived in Asian countries in past lives and studied yogic arts. I put as much light as I could into people as they were receptive to receive at that time. and he was very cordial. Arut Perum Jyoti. Photographers tried to photograph me when I was Swami Ramalingam after I transformed into the Light Body. and the Siddhas will come to the same table in order to create the new technology for this new millennium. It did not take place immediately. The Unites States is a very blessed country. Manikavacakar and Swami Ramalingam. a priest was waiting for me. While I was Swami Ramalingam in 1874. I began to relive my past lifetime. This city is on a power spot sacred to SI-VA. but he knew exactly about this pool which was far away from this temple. The people of the United States have really balanced these two energies of matter and spirit more than any other country. DC. Someday I will tell the story of how I learned this. the whole earth-plane is controlled out of Washington. The Nadi predicted that I would remember all my previous births after having sprinkled this water. that is how I came to know about my previous births as the enlightened teachers Agastiya. and I had to reconnect myself with those energies and integrate them into this life. It will continue to be an important power center. Many of the people who live here are blessed with a good karma. but nothing came through in their photos when they were developed except the clothes that I was wearing on my body. The sound “V” at some points in history switched in some places over to “W.” So Washington starts with the sounds WA-SI or VA-SI. I was asked at one point to go to a particular temple and there I was told that I would go to a particular place and there would be a pool and I have to take some water from the pool and put it over my head and this is a very ancient temple now almost abandoned. the 224 thirtieth of January under the star Pushya. But then. they have come to the West. I went there. Material progress and enlightenment is not about religion. and as it was predicted in the Nadi. information about my old lives came to me. but over a period of a few months. I was asked to go to various places connected with me in my past life and these places were charged with energy. He was an old man. As I went to them. Scientists. that is fine. I gave the message that I would disappear and so I did. In fact. regardless of their religious tradition. Arut Perum Jyoti 225 . and it was very important for me to do that.Life Changing Mantras: Tools from the Other Side Section III—Other Tools Chapter 17: You Do Not Have to be Hindu to Use This Material manifest your goals or to develop a Light Body. Tani Perum Karunai. So. and is best place to release these teachings. We are doubly blessed.

Thirumular says that Siva (Infinite Intelligence) is beyond this. then we will have a different idea about matter and different idea about energy. and then there is the knowledge about the unknown. It will be so beautiful to have this experience which will give us incredible freedom and joy. for this is what the Siddhas talk about as non-referential knowledge. matter and the fifth element. and he makes a reference to two kinds of intelligence: one concerns those things which are generally known. there is the known knowledge. is someone I have tremendous respect for 226 because I have not known a Siddha who is more knowledgeable. Then the question is. nothing can exist. Without consciousness which is intelligence per se. Arut Perum Joyti. space. the second pair is time and space and along with these two pairs is consciousness. and this change that we do within our mind. Arut Perum Jyoti. consciousness. With this Intelligence. the known and the unknown.Life Changing Mantras: Tools from the Other Side Section III—Other Tools Chapter 17: You Do Not Have to be Hindu to Use This Material Arut Perum Jyoti. They are subject to our own perception and our own perception is limited by our own intelligence. What I am saying here is that we are going to make some important changes within our intelligence structure that is embedded in our consciousness. and the other refers to those which are unknown. will change our concepts of matter and energy. So. but whatever you do not know the meaning of— the unknown—is limitless. If we bring in more intelligence. we can have everything instantaneously. his knowledge is encyclopedic. within our brain. that is the known. Siva is beyond the known. That is true evolution. When I was reading Einstein this made tremendous sense to me. for the unknown is open-ended. Arut Perum Jyoti. Â 227 . Thirumualar. It may appear to be a puzzle to you because the mind cannot conceive anything that is not logically sensible. and space is dependent on the point of reference that we bring in. We are going to have tremendous understanding about time. of time and space. whatever you can or do know is limited. beyond the unknown. There are two pairs the first pair is energy and matter. that which is not the unknown and that which is present eternity. the unknown. Thirumular talks about the intelligence of Siva. the same with time. Then we will have heaven on earth. We will then think that space is no longer as we thought it to be. For instance. There are five factors that we are going to study at length which will give us this new science. the first Siddha. The unknown is also a category that is under some conceptual limitation. when talking about reality. Einstein. The understanding that will happen will result in the study of consciousness more because consciousness is going to give what I have been talking about as the missing link between matter and spirit or matter and energy. I can give a clue of what is going to be involved in the creation of this new science and technology. more intelligent than Thirmular. time and space are not independent concepts. says our concept of the reality of the world including time. Matter and energy. that which is not the known. energy. The known intelligence or known knowledge is limited. “What is this intelligence of Siva?” It is the intelligence that is everywhere. The intelligence that I want to develop for everyone during the coming millennium is Nonreferential Intelligence.
