The country passed through a very severe economic depression. You may ask. killing several soldiers. One day. Now. Chant the sound Brzee into the sensory organs. “If we are doing Thiru Neela Kantam.

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. He now demanded the cow from Vasistha.

He renounced his temporal power as king and decided to whole-heartedly pursue spiritual austerities. and there was not enough food for the people. Story of Visvamitra and the Sage Vasistha When I was in India. Visvamitra decided to take the cow by force. For a moment he was confused and angry. The story of Visvamitra’s encounter with Vasistha illustrates the idea that mind power is better than muscle power. invoking his royal power as a king. No one could capture Kamadhenu. Begin 67 . This cow was a gift that the enlightened Sage Vasistha received from Lord Siva after years and years of penance and meditation. mentally repeat at the same spots. Brzee Meditation In this meditation. The humbled Visvamitra was resolved. and he wanted to find out means for rectifying it. the king engaged Vasistha in combat. why bother with planets?” The answer to this question is: Thiru Neela Kantam is like your general physician. continually allowing the mantra to become more and more subtle. Sit comfortably. Visvamitra wanted the sage to sell the cow to him. but said that he wouldn’t be able to part with the cow. Stay for one minute in each of these areas.

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

I

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

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

But without playing games there is no life. The cells are also bound by the concept of time. Who is this guy. God switches back and forth between thought and object with utmost ease. you should not make your life’s happiness dependent on anything other than your own consciousness. For human beings. then marry him and have that experience. Remember. If you want to marry him. if we need money we first need to create a job or business to generate income. the requirement of an action to manifest material reality appears to be redundant. People stoned him because it was blasphemous to equate oneself with God. Your ego is responsible for the separation between you and God. 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. In God’s consciousness the thought and its object exist in blissful union. We can learn 83 . It is not his deci82 sion. Every experience is a game that you are playing. When the cells pick up the NOW. you can effect a lot of changes in your life. Once the body begins to live the NOW. One morning I received a call. The body has to live the NOW. But you can educate the body to diffuse that idea by diffusing the concept of time. am I going to marry this person? My heart is drawn to him. Everything is a game. 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. Ultimate happiness is the realization of the soul’s true nature. they lose interest in the old concept. However. 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. It is completely full. So play games. This is called manifestation in the NOW. But. This is one of the many calls that I receive: ‘Sri Siva. and it has caught hold of an idea in the past. but no experience is going to give you ultimate happiness. it clings onto the idea and lives that idea of sickness for a certain time. So you have everything within you. All that you need to do is get rid of your ego. The moment you bring in the energy of NOW. So. You can cause the body to live in the NOW as well. The cells must think: NOW… NOW… NOW… NOW… NOW. How the cells of the body can be trained to remain in the NOW. but play intelligently. Because of the material nature of the body. It is beyond happiness or unhappiness. you are seeking some experience. one thing you must understand. It is bliss. The cells also think. then the disease which was created in the past disappears. Go and have that experience. but play it well. It is not only the brain that thinks. it is your decision. being conditioned by the body-mind. and they will begin to live in the Divine energy. However. or we have to borrow from someone. We need to create an action and wait until it is complete to manifest things.Life Changing Mantras: Tools from the Other Side Section II—Personal Transformation Program Chapter 3: Risk-Taking Jesus when Jesus started calling himself God.

Here is a possible scenario dealing with a typical relationship behavioral symptom: You get up in the morning. You cannot change the other person. Then you not only pretend but you believe that it is true. You exchange dirty looks. The bottom line in learning to create a good relationship is that you should not carry on your judgments about the other person. You may have murdered your wife/husband in a previous lifetime. I want to talk about a specific situation. Getting to the Root I want to emphasize that behavioral problems need to be dealt with not at the symptom level. Every moment can open to a new reality.

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.

I suggest you use the term “Arul” instead of “Grace” because the moment you say “Arul.

Somebody is cured of AIDS/cancer or someone receives huge wealth out of the blue. future.” Marul includes our science and technology as well. More light means more intelligence. Grace. Light depending on its intensity has lesser or more intelligence. you do experience the light of God very directly.

When we align ourselves with the light of God we get things done in the speed of light. That is why in a dark room.” Miracle is an extraordinary happening that baffles our understanding. What is a Miracle? Let me now define “miracle. present and future. To help you understand these concepts more deeply. If you look at the terms “Arul” and “Marul. He is omnipotent in the sense that he is capable of performing anything and everything including the impossible. I think of two ways of explaining light. He* is omniscient with knowledge of everything: past. Arul itself is a mantra that defies any discursive reasoning used to define it.” there are significant resemblances and differences meaningful only for yogis. It moves at a tremendous speed. Yes. since they follow human laws which are time bound.] A Defining Grace GRACE is the quality of God. I am going to give you a working definition for each concept. What is light? Is it brightness? Is it high electricity? Is it simply a visual quality? The concept of light is very complex. That term is Arul. and present. He is omnipresent in the sense that he is present everywhere in time and space in the past. During enlightenment. both inside the mind and outside in space. And “seeing” is knowing. Light Up the Mind Now I want to define the term light. This light of God carries the Divine Intelligence called ‘Arul’. Grace doesn’t mean mercy simply. In Tamil there is a word for it which is almost impossible to translate into English. Personally. What is “God”? GOD means a Divine being who is luminous in complexion with no materiality except a form visible only to certain human beings with ESP. Light and Miracle are synonyns. Darkness puts out the fire of knowledge. the Light of God excels that of the sun or any other star. You have heard that in many religions God is light. His brightness is equivalent to trillions of stars. You to understand that light is consciousness.

I pray that the Formless and Nameless Almighty will do some miracles to make this separation happen all over the world. a professor of anthropology gave a definition of religion as it is understood in the contemporary world. although Christianity became a major world religion.” More often than not. and to this day they don’t think that Jesus Christ was a messiah from Yahweh. modern science has failed in one major respect and that is “looking inside the mind machine. As I pointed out earlier. Such a separation is indeed the beginning of a New World Order. the common man cares less for God or religion. there are deep problems in putting this concept into practice. religion is irrational.

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

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

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. so it seems plausible to me that Bogar could have been Einstein. The Siddhas went one step further and came up with many geometrical shapes that link matter and spirit. My evolution was such that even the divine beings were afraid of my evolution. very superficially. when he describes light and matter. It is form being formed out of non-form or chaos. When it manifests it becomes matter. but matter is stuck in one place. but we haven’t done anything to understand energy or to understand spirit. The Science of Sacred Geometry. we have to stop it here. These are all hindrances to understanding the divine intelligence. 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. My disciples in that lifetime did not like it. was the Tamil Siddha Bogar in a previous lifetime. there was nothing.” 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. Material existence is defined by a low level of intelligence—bondage to certain fleeting sensory experience. and when it unmanifests it becomes energy. somebody told me. 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. The new technology that I am proposing will give us an understanding about the domain wherein mind and matter meet. I have characterized the nature of the higher intelligence. In a previous lifetime when I was Swami Ramalingam. And here again. bondage to a frozen concept of time which uses the experience of the past. and before then. 222 Geometrical Origins Geometry explains the origin of things. and the future. 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 even challenged the Hindu gods during my lifetime as Swami Ramalingam because what I was teaching people was to focus just on Light. There is a lot of literature available about him.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. Yet. Plato described many solids and liquids through geometrical figures. this is from a very ancient literary source. I was reading Einstein’s original writings. It is a tremendous statement. Now they are two separate worlds connected only very. I am teaching you do not need to be Hindu to use the tools to 223 . You put a dot. 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. Einstein. they thought that I was deep into my ego. In the Siddha literature they describe Bogar’s attempt to build a ship propelled by steam. This is very. The understanding of geometry will provide us tremendous clues about understanding the relationship between matter and spirit. This makes sense to me because Bogar. Now Einstein. I want to repeat this: the new technology pertains to the domain where mind and matter meet. says that when light is stopped it begins to coagulate into matter. belongs to the old world. had great mathematical understanding and was a scientist. again. It means you create something. I have characterized them. 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. Remember. It is everywhere. it cannot be analyzed any farther. the Tamil Siddha. very close to my heart. present. I was able to demonstrate to myself. for instance.

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

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