I resented my filthy human body. if not more. but then I had to die at some point. As Agastiya. I was no longer the Prime Minister. whereas the Divine has no material existence and has a divine mind.

But since I am neither attracted nor repulsed by it. Siva absorbed me into his image. The palm leaves revealed a few of them: Bhishma. Enlightened—what this means is that the human is becoming the Divine. It is embarrassing for me to write this. To make a long story short. The leaves opened up a new world for me. Over the past two years I have had many revelations about the evolution of my soul. I have had thousands of incarnations. 25 . Manikavacakar and Swami Ramalingam. The leaves commissioned this guy by saying that he should seek me out and read my future to me. My Bhishma incarnation is the weakest when compared to the rest. I remembered many of my past lives as great saints of India. although it was my own personal choice. the difference between the human and Divine is a matter of consciousness. No doubt Bhishma was semi-Divine. They appear and disappear by their choice and by their power make themselves known to certain human beings.

It was such a blissful experience. Ramalingam saw the splendor of Siva’s form. water. He is within my body and will reveal himself soon. Ramalingam was upset that his students preferred three meals and full gossip over the Light Body. As a human being I am fully aware that I cannot manipulate this transformation.

This event. toothache. but none wanted the Light body. would come to the Earth-plane and stay there for awhile performing numerous miracles and transforming the planet Earth. So. he remembered the initiation and hoped that one day he would permanently get the Light Body. Ramalingam’s body instantaneously became a light body. I am myself both fascinated and excited. Both were fully realized beings and identified themselves with Siva himself. Siva then left and Ramalingam’s body reverted back to its original flesh and blood form. It is purely the decision of the Divine. will have a huge impact on the evolution of planet Earth. I am awaiting very eagerly for the transformation of this body into Light. So. karma and ego.

On the one hand. in 1873 Ramalingam’s body turned into Light. He woke him up. Siva then hugged him. Siva appeared before Ramalingam. They both claimed that after their encounter with Siva. etc. This time.. when that happens. poor vision. Siva. It is interesting that the palm leaves have now revealed that Siva has indeed come to the earth-plane. they had become Siva himself. the purpose of the incarnation was to systematically and experientially understand the transformation of the body into light.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.

You came here to become the president of the country or to be a homeless person. including a physical 33 . The Buddhists say that you cannot end karma until you become totally empty. You experiment with this man or woman. then nothing will be out there in the world. even to the bathroom! We have phones in the airplanes that we can use. Then we don’t need a phone. there will be no more movement. Only aristocrats could afford 32 it. So. at some point. It’s very. there is no possibility for life. What exists is your own mind. Same thing applies to life. are only a fabrication of your mind. He told the aristocrats. And the funny thing about the bicycle was that the original bicycle did not have a brake. On the earth-plane you learn everything through trial and error. Story of the Invention of the Bicycle I often talk about an interesting anecdote as some people find it easier to understand things through stories. and they would only use it on special occasions. The Disney movie was narrating the history of the invention of the bicycle. You came here to marry someone or to divorce someone else. For example. It is real. including the phenomenal world. Everything is created by the mind. Why Do You Do What You Do? I can understand people coming to live a prosperous life.” Then the people who tried this method of course crashed. because there is no way they can make a perfect computer. The movie explained that when the bicycle was first invented in France. very limited. And when there is no more desire. the aristocrat would ride a bicycle so as to impress the woman he was courting. because the model that modern science follows is limited. but who wants poverty? It is a learning process. They said all of these things. They decided we have to somehow stop the bicycle from moving in an easier way. you came here to go through poverty and slavery. When you are empty. Then karma ends. Or. they invented the brake for the bicycle. and then move on to get a new better partner or vocation. Why not do that right now? In Atlantis. it is going to take time. Creations of the Mind If one has no mind. not very many people could afford it. It was a status symbol. The man who invented it did not see the necessity for a brake. However. many thousands of years ago by the yogis. One day I was watching a Disney movie for kids.

We have to understand the human mind. Nevertheless. But. The major experiment he conducted was on cancer patients with at least 500 people in each experimental group.

The mind is not there. very careful about what we think. but instead a placebo was given. the karma which cannot be changed easily. Matter is a fact. we have to operate with the fact that we are dealing with matter-of-fact. you are not dead. You have certain givens [or conditions] in this life. He had a number of projects in this country and also in Europe to discover how thoughts get translated into biological reality. The doctors didn’t administer chemotherapy. This experiment was repeated both in Europe and in this country. Why? It is because the givens are like water which has become ice cubes—solid matter. but the mind. very difficult to make. They have not been able to make changes in a significant way. then everything disappears. Changeable vs Unchangeable Karma Now I am going to confine my current discussion to one area of karma. I might bleach myself and invite more problems. The mind creates psychic impressions that somehow stay in the cosmos. 35 percent of the people lost hair anyhow. Thoughts Become Biology I will give you a practical example. It creates through thoughts. We have to become very. because what we think is going to manifest as reality. What this high-sounding word means is that your thoughts become your biology. For instance. very responsible in handling our mind. As I said in the beginning.

Norman Cousins was an old acquaintance of mine. If I want to turn it into white skin. and the treatment may cause loss of hair. 34 In this experiment the cancer patients were told that they are going to receive chemotherapy. I have brown skin. the changes are very. Look at sleep. We give some information to people to help prevent certain things from happening. In the morning. It is very difficult to change solid matter. When you are sleeping. This led Cousins to make very serious objections about preventative [measures]. because whatever we think is going to become a reality. it’s not going to happen. The mind is dead. but day after day they wake up to the same reality. An innocent woman who doesn’t know about breast cancer is told to examine her breasts periodically—who knows what is going to happen? Somebody is going to realize that fear in a physical form. You have to have a mind which can hold this object as a thought in your brain. when the mind comes back. and then these impressions cause a person to reincarnate. I’m not saying that it is impossible. Karma is also created through the mind. So when the mind is not there. nothing exists. I have selected certain situations in my life which are very. Everything starts out as energy and becomes matter and when energy has become a material reality. These cancer patients were tested for a placebo effect—he wanted to see how powerfully people translate a certain idea into biological realities.
Mentally you can go on making affirmations. We are not conscious at all. Prarabdha is that which is going to be experienced by you no matter what you do. you begin to challenge reality. 36 Someone has come with a mindset that he has taken birth to do certain things. At no time are you going to be unconscious. you are allowing things to happen. And these are what we need to diffuse. although they may not acknowledge it! Prarabdha: Difficult Karma So there is a reality that is very difficult to change. Every minute you are going to be conscious. prarabdha. That’s the most important thing that we have to understand. And he said that while you are doing this exercise. Karma is the spell. I want to change my apartment. You are causing the karma to manifest. but you are not. Because of the robot mind. No matter what you do to change him. And we created them. We are unconsciously led to the process of staying with a certain mindset because it is very. We love to forget ourselves. That is how we live life. Day by day we wake up to the same old reality. very difficult to be alert and be otherwise. In Sanskrit they have a word called samskara which means innate qualities or certain proclivities with which you are born. When you become alert. I want to change my car. You are under a spell as if you are drugged. We are unconscious. It is easy to be a robot. You follow the same path. I want to change my job. I won’t repeat this behavior. The diffusion cannot be done by the mind. You have to become alert to the core.” But constantly you make the mistake over and over again. Why do we do that? Because of karma. he is not going to change. This holds true for everyone.” You want it on a mental level. making promises that “I won’t repeat this. The moment you become alert. This is what people have to look at… For most people. prarabdha. Why? Because of the spell. That is the karma from a previous birth. Everyone of us is under a spell. they get frustrated. We don’t know that we are even breathing. Everyone is under a spell. You have to create more energy to diffuse the past life karma. How many of you have dramatically changed your lives? What is the percentage of people who have been able to change their lives? One percent? Two percent?…. In Sanskrit they call it the most difficult karma to change. You must ponder this very soberly. When you challenge karma. There have been many self-help books. challenge karma. So the way to diffuse karma is to become alert and not allow the robot to continue in its unconscious way. you challenge the cause of karma. The influence of karma forces you to carry on with the misery. “I want to change my life. These are the givens. I tell them this is only true in a limited sense. but then it is not happening. writing affirmations. you are not going to accept things as they are.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 because of its physicality. Even people who write books saying that you can do everything. Share this material with others who may be interested. Ninety percent fail. We get frustrated. The mind thinks. you have to be so conscious that you should not miss even one breath. I want to manifest a good relationship. but how many people have been able to turn their lives around? They have been reading hundreds and hundreds of books on self-help which all say you create your own reality and the sky is the limit. 37 . I will change this. That is why when self-help people tell me that you create your own reality. If you are unconscious. too. You are incapable of making changes. change has not happened yet. The Buddha said that you consider yourself to be in a waking state. That’s why the Buddha said breathe for an hour. Because the breath and the mind are related processes. Be sincere.
what will diffuse karma is attention. to live without karma. When you become more aware. If you bring more attention. You are infinite. He says you have to meditate because you have to avoid the danger that has not yet come. For the grown-ups. Why don’t we have much attention now? We are lazy. so you are going to create other lives to enjoy it or suffer it. Then. the enlightened Indian yogi who compiled the Yoga Sutras. So what you have to do is just meditate more. When you bring more attention. The Buddha was able to see that all these are games. You eat with awareness. If you successfully become aware of your breath for an hour. You have created enough dangers for several lifetimes. Intelligence is synonymous with awareness. enough alertness to diffuse karma. You and I don’t have these. Why? Did he care for his muscles? He did. What can help you come to this conclusion is more awareness. By meditating you create more awareness. you see into the limited circumstances that the mind both creates and makes real. more attention. these toys are very real. They are unfolding. So what you need is care. You don’t care now. And how did he care for them? His whole life was the muscles. Patanjali.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 But the reality is you cannot put your mind on the breath even for five minutes. You have to end playing these games at some point in your life. You can stop things by virtue of your own attention. The toys are different. Emptiness is unlimited life in which you are not defined. Emptiness is not a negative quality. This lifetime is not enough to live those events. Karma stops because you are waking up to a different dimension of existence where you are able to see the karma coming forth. And that. with attention. You sleep with awareness. then things cannot get overlooked. Intelligence is universal understanding in which you understand everything about yourself and about the cosmos. And. he emptied the karma. You study with awareness. This is how you avoid the dangers that are yet to come. Diffusing Karma So. One has to wake up to the reality which is infinite intelligence. If you are attentive. Then karma will stop. From that perspective. Attention means care. you end karma. The only thing is that they like different toys. The Buddha sat under the bodhi tree before his enlightenment. So. you can stop things. You have to become aware. Did you care for your muscles? No. he said. there was no more karma to emerge. And what is your attitude toward the girl? Why does she want all these toys? Why does she want chocolate all the time? But for the kid. and he began to 38 relive all the karma that he had to pass through. and then the attention burns off the karma. The same analogy applies to grown-up people also. it is so real and so tempting. speaks about why one needs to meditate. everything seems to be a game—an illusion. Buddhi means Intelligence. is the nature of every human being. Attention and care are synonymous. you bring more care. The term Buddha means one who has accessed buddhi. There is nothing out there and in that emptiness you are full. that will change your life entirely because by that time you will have created enough energy. in that way. This is the law of nature. That is why he said that total reality is emptiness. When you do that. It is not intelligence in the Western psychological sense. look at a six-year-old girl—she wants all kinds of toys. Mike Tyson has great muscles. then you become more alert. For example. 39 . More awareness means more intelligence.
was having an affair with another guy. And then you can check out what you can do and what you cannot do. “This woman is cheating me!” And in the play he puts his hands on his head to see if he has developed horns. You can become alert and dismiss the thought. Right now. I can create consciousness in you provided I tell you how to do it. The thought process is like a vampire. because you can’t allow the robot thought to do its thing. You play with awareness. but the knowledge that she has slept with this man. If you give reality to a thought. What exists is your own consciousness. Thoughts are your guests. The thought will fall away like a dead leaf from a tree. It’s a tradition that is not very well known. And. It sucks up all of your energy and limits you. And he begins to analyze the situation. He continues to analyze and analyze. By becoming more conscious you can stop these processes and when you do that. It’s a simple exercise. So. Sometimes it is the knowledge that becomes the problem. that thought will give rise to another thought and another thought and another. you are diffusing karma. These enlightened sages believe in changing life both 41 .” the thought will fall away. I dismiss you. And you live a life as though there is no existence other than thought existence. The gesture is from a belief in ancient Greece that if your wife cheats on you. more awareness. you have to step outside the thought process and for that you need awareness. even though this was not actually true. “I am like dust in the wind.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 You work with awareness.

Shakespeare had a great understanding about this. and Othello’s mind began to rage. “I don’t want it. I don’t want to be unhappy. so I had nothing known. My own tradition is a tradition that equally emphasizes changing the physical reality. What happens now is that your awareness is being eaten by your thought process. conscious of your body. I don’t want this thought at all. There is a bodily awareness that you have to create.” and then you will begin to analyze all the incidents trying to make up a case to make yourself more miserable. you will grow horns. Desdemona. you’ll become more and more conscious. Just sit and then become conscious of yourself. They check in and check out. You are the host. and then awareness of the consciousness itself is another project. if you remain in this way. You never lose your awareness no matter what you do.” And for that you need more consciousness. “Oh. Become alert. In order to remain focused. You have to learn to develop more consciousness within you. you are unconscious. The moment you become aware and tell yourself. “This thought is trying to cheat me and make me unhappy. You will be creating an energy field. Sometimes there will be an obstinate thought. Keep your eyeballs still and just become conscious of your skin all over the body.” 40 He wonders what is bothering him: is it Desdemona’s sex act with this guy or the knowledge that he has that she slept with him? And he says. My tradition is called the Tamil Siddha tradition. No thought can remain within the system forever. you can become conscious. Try this right now. You see how it happens? So.” So what bothers him is not the actual act. In his play. But I don’t quite totally subscribe to the Buddhist model. Othello. You are not using your consciousness in the right way. “I had been happy if the general camp… had tasted her sweet body. somebody came and told Othello that his wife. how he cheated me on this.

I teach “purposeful meditation. “Why not buy it now?” She told me it would take her two years to save for the down payment.” Set productive goals for yourself as you work with the sounds and the tools. And so. you will understand things on another level. But it points to the problem. Once she believed it would take two years to buy the house. we must raise the mind to that level of awareness. there is no adventure. Each time you read in this book. as it always wants to identify with misery. Reality is Not Frozen The mistake we make is that we try to freeze reality at any given moment. So. This is possible through the practice of meditation. In a life that is structured and guaranteed. The mind likes least to act upon a desire immediately. Reality is volatile. life goes on in this manner.

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. but he needs to send you to an eye doctor or an orthopedic doctor as the need arises. Visvamitra was distressed by this suffering. Begin 67 . Story of Visvamitra and the Sage Vasistha When I was in India. the king engaged Vasistha in combat. But Lord Siva intervened and turned the arrows into flower garlands that fell harmlessly at the feet of Vasistha. You may ask. Visvamitra was originally a great king who lived in India in a different time period. Vasistha made it clear that the magical cow was not something one could buy and sell like other commodities. the magical. mentally repeat at the same spots. would not take no for an answer. First chant Brzee out loud into the sensory organs and then. He renounced his temporal power as king and decided to whole-heartedly pursue spiritual austerities. The mantra that Visvamitra gave to me is BRZEE. I will tell you a story about him. He knows everything about your body. He shot deadly arrows at Vasistha. Stay for one minute in each of these areas. and he wanted to find out means for rectifying it. But suddenly. being the king of the land. He explained to Vasistha that he would put the cow to good use and that there was no better financial instrument than Kamadhenu. In the meantime. No one could capture Kamadhenu. After many years of disciplining his mind Visvamitra also attained miraculous powers. it began to dawn on him that all his martial arts training and kingly powers were useless in comparison to Vasistha’s miraculous power attained through spiritual means. continually allowing the mantra to become more and more subtle. He now demanded the cow from Vasistha. while hunting he encountered Kamadhenu. Visvamitra decided to take the cow by force. “If we are doing Thiru Neela Kantam. This cow was a gift that the enlightened Sage Vasistha received from Lord Siva after years and years of penance and meditation.Life Changing Mantras: Tools from the Other Side Section II—Personal Transformation Program Chapter 2: Finances planets in your chart.

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.
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
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
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
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
You have to do that. because the NOW always eludes us. you will be in a state of awareness in which you will see the two worlds. But remember that everything that is around you is your creation. We do not want to enter into the sphere which is beyond logic. And then from there.Life Changing Mantras: Tools from the Other Side Section II—Personal Transformation Program Chapter 3: Risk-Taking want anything in the future. but when you live in the NOW reality. How do you live in the NOW? You just disorient yourself from all that is around you and then live in the NOW. Logically it may not make sense to you. But I fully take responsibility for having created it. We are afraid because it is so terrifying. you move into a sphere that is beyond logic. And the moment I began to question that. The choice is to live in the NOW and then make important decisions. What happens is that when you are going to act out the future. If I have to cancel a program. It doesn’t want anything right NOW or even tomorrow or even after a month. And then for a time. So it is important every day that you have to live the NOW for some time. We are fearful. because I act out from the NOW. and then I have to be in North Carolina. and nobody creates it but you. I am not telling you to disregard your appointments or your logical reality. So when you live in the NOW. including myself. Everything has to happen now and it is just a stupid game to prolong things. The mind has the tendency to delay things for no reason. I have to be in Chicago. One morning I was reflecting on the NOW. because you have not learned to fully live in the NOW. And you have NOW learned to understand that I do 78 it for my own reasons. I have to fulfill my obligations. All these engagements were created by me. But once you get into the territory of the NOW. Suddenly. because to conceive of the future would be an insult to his own consciousness. I begin to question if these events were required. I go to North Carolina and spend five days there. 79 . That is why I created an email newsletter program for you to get out of your mundane awareness. I’ll give you a concrete example. So far we know a way of life based on logic. And then there will be an integration of these two without conflict. Those of you who have been close to me know that I cancel programs very often. It is good. you will understand that you have only to gain by moving past logic. You should always evaluate whether you are living in the NOW. So tomorrow morning I may cancel my program in Chicago and in North Carolina. When you get into the NOW. and that is how I came to do this material for you. you live in a different dimension. The reason why the mind always feels comfortable visualizing things happening in the dim future is that the mind is conditioned by time. there is a possibility that I will begin a process of self-examination. everything is possible. at every point. and then begin to live in the NOW. there will be no conflict. Remember. you will do what you have to do. and I will be in Chicago for three days. you begin to question whether what you’re doing it right or not. Let’s say that tomorrow morning I have to go to Chicago. I integrate eventualities with ease. The advantage of being in the NOW is that it can speed up your progress. at this point. Choosing Now NOW. You want things to happen in the distant future. there are infinite possibilities. Now is Elusive This is an important part of daily practice to accelerate transformation. And I have my own reasons for keeping it or not keeping it. And for one minute as you read the email. You can live like a god or goddess. and the impact of it will also be with ease. I began to question the necessity for me to go to Chicago. Until you make this transition. Everyone creates a future. you have a choice. the world of logic and the world that is beyond logic. NOW.
we are able to get into the NOW. You are going to follow a certain schedule. complain about yourself. I want to be Divine today. Most people get paid either weekly or every other week. within the Divine moment. Then the fantasy gets realized soon. The mind says that NOW is fantasy. You love to identify yourself with the human-ness. you are not stuck outside. it makes the mind uncomfortable. Don’t complain about anything. Make use of the Divine moment to conceive of the fantasy. and the seed takes time to sprout. I don’t want to be human anymore. It is the Divine right for every human being to be able to live spontaneously in the NOW. Don’t complain about destiny. just float in the NOW. Only when you feel that you are stuck. You are not afraid of a society which identifies itself with human limitations. If you have to complain about someone. the growth of a baby into an adult takes time. Give me an opportunity so that all things can be changed. Just float. God not only lives in you. you feel that you are inside within your mind. “God. Then you will feel that every moment is NOW. and I can live afresh. but what I want you to do as you wake is to say to yourself. But you refuse to accept that. The day that your fantasies gain enough strength to become reality within your own consciousness. You embrace limitation. And it doesn’t cost you any money to live in the NOW. It is your own mind that you need to control. God lives in you. not reality. Reality is a realized fantasy.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. we will challenge everything that we have created for the day. And when you live in the NOW. then you create the outside. Do not carry anything very deep within you which creates time.” Then you will feel bliss. Introducing a concept like NOW is alien to the mind. others get paid on a monthly basis. just get into the NOW: 80 “I am in the NOW. society is against that person. You are afraid of de-limitation. But the most important thing that the mind has to understand is that fantasy and reality are not very different. That’s the bottom line. This is also true with the money situation. If you learn to float. there are a lot of possibilities for you in this lifetime. It has a Divine energy that transcends time. And then it takes time for the sprout to grow into a tree. Just float. Suppress the mind and then get into the NOW. So you always have to get into the NOW in order to accelerate the process. And within the NOW. And if someone calls himself a God. You sow a seed.” Be without obligations just for a few moments. Be Divine Today When you wake up in the morning. And I want you to do this within the structure of the NOW. It is your own action. Similarly. The NOW has the energy to accelerate the materialization of your fantasy. Fantasy is phenomenon not yet realized. First. While you are still engaged in doing things which you have created. that transcends logic. Because you are not living in the NOW. This happened in the life of 81 . Then you will not feel that you are a victim. So it is terribly important that we live in the NOW. Don’t complain about others. And you will begin to celebrate life. that transcends the conceptual constraints of the human mind. So you have to make every fantasy of yours become real. then there is no distinction between fantasy and reality. things go wrong. Those who get paid on a monthly basis must wait 30 days before they get paid. Sometimes once in a day or many times within a few hours. you become God. Many years elapse between the time that you sow the seed and when it becomes the tree. because it’s the obligations you have set out for yourself during the day that cause you to act and follow a certain schedule. If you are not stuck inside.
All that you need to do is get rid of your ego. However. In God’s consciousness the thought and its object exist in blissful union. So play games. The cells must think: NOW… NOW… NOW… NOW… NOW. 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. So you have everything within you. you can effect a lot of changes in your life. and it has caught hold of an idea in the past. This is one of the many calls that I receive: ‘Sri Siva. Now You Can Make Changes Yet the Bible says that God created man in His own image. but play intelligently. the requirement of an action to manifest material reality appears to be redundant. 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. But you can educate the body to diffuse that idea by diffusing the concept of time. and not a very uncommon call at that. and they will begin to live in the Divine energy. Go and have that experience. Continue to play the game. one thing you must understand. Ultimate happiness is the realization of the soul’s true nature.Life Changing Mantras: Tools from the Other Side Section II—Personal Transformation Program Chapter 3: Risk-Taking Jesus when Jesus started calling himself God. then marry him and have that experience. The body cannot move. it is your decision. The cells are also bound by the concept of time. Who is this guy. if we need money we first need to create a job or business to generate income. ‘Look. People stoned him because it was blasphemous to equate oneself with God.’ Your consciousness is full. God? Where does He live? How can we learn this technique? God lives within you as the non-ego consciousness without any identity whatsoever. One morning I received a call. It is not his deci82 sion. For human beings. am I going to marry this person? My heart is drawn to him. God switches back and forth between thought and object with utmost ease. When the cells pick up the NOW. you are seeking some experience. We need to create an action and wait until it is complete to manifest things. So. then the disease which was created in the past disappears. Once the body begins to live the NOW. You can cause the body to live in the NOW as well. Remember. The body has to live the NOW. or we have to borrow from someone. but play it well. It is beyond happiness or unhappiness. but no experience is going to give you ultimate happiness. The cells also think. they lose interest in the old concept. Be Like God God manifests things as soon as the thought comes into His mind. But. it clings onto the idea and lives that idea of sickness for a certain time. This is called manifestation in the NOW. For instance. It is bliss. that once you get close you may not even want the experience. manifestation of desired objects is a complex process which does not happen in the NOW. you should not make your life’s happiness dependent on anything other than your own consciousness. It is not only the brain that thinks. Every experience is a game that you are playing. If you want to marry him. But without playing games there is no life. It is a simple and joyful process. It doesn’t need any experience whatsoever to make it happy or unhappy. being conditioned by the body-mind. Your ego is responsible for the separation between you and God. We can learn 83 . Everything is a game. Because of the material nature of the body. The same thing can be applied to relationships. However. How the cells of the body can be trained to remain in the NOW. people have to be systematically taught how the body can live the NOW. It is completely full.

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.

principles. Once I visited a student of mine at her house. Her son was swimming in the pool. Looking at him I thought there was something seriously wrong with the boy. I asked her to do two things. 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

Chapter 9: Compassion and Grace
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 think of two ways of explaining light.” Marul includes our science and technology as well. Darkness puts out the fire of knowledge. Somebody is cured of AIDS/cancer or someone receives huge wealth out of the blue. When we align ourselves with the light of God we get things done in the speed of light. What is light?

This light of God carries the Divine Intelligence called ‘Arul’. No light means no intelligence and no knowledge. 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. Grace doesn’t mean mercy simply. It is mercy combined with intelligence of the supreme kind. To help you understand these concepts more deeply.

He said. there are deep problems in putting this concept into practice. 217 . modern science has failed in one major respect and that is “looking inside the mind machine. the common man cares less for God or religion. automobiles.
Our next question is. and destructive thoughts. We will know the clue of how we can make this conversion. And of course. This is a rule of thumb which applies to every area of life. but also health. we may buy sound software to enhance our mathematical skills or athletic abilities. As I have said before. I want to maximize the ability of the brain/mind domain. What is going to give the world happiness is a new technology. the CDs. I have put them into CDs and videotapes. We have to stop the brain/mind from producing stupid thoughts. I visit people on the dream plane and am always available for instant contact inwardly to sincere seekers. not just wealth. But that is not my intention here. If you pull out language from our mind. “What is mind?” Language is a combination of sound and meaning. 218 The New Technology Will be Based on Spiritualizing Matter and Vice Versa At some time in the future. This new technology will give us the missing link between energy and matter. This theory could have great impact on education. But you can do homestudy with enlightened tools. his brain/mind is ingrained with poverty sounds. I want to be very practical and will give hands-on technologies. happiness and enlightenment. the bottom line contention is that if a person is rich. between spirit and matter. The destiny of Science and Technology in the new millennium will be in this direction. my theory is very old. Right now it is only theoretical and mathematical probability. Once we know how. This book is based on this Theory of Mind: Ninety percent of our mind is composed of language. This new technology will use a higher intelligence. The brain/mind of these people are producing stupid thoughts nearly in the range of eighty to ninety percent. At a very deep level of the language (prethought level). meaning merges in with the sound in an emotional-ideational complex. We do not know the methodology by which we can convert energy into matter or matter into energy without a lot of destruction. I will play my role in giving to this new technology to the world and this new science that will make our lives easier. commerce and politics. there will be very little or no mind at all. For now. it is a higher science and a higher technology that will find a practical application of Einstein’s theory of relativity. In fact. This tradition goes back to Lemurian 219 . I define stupid thoughts as: Unproductive bio-energy that creates unrewarding. if a person is poor. we will have infinite freedom. This is the easiest way to share them with large numbers of people. I have a new view of the brain/mind domain. So. unproductive. 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. and any other products I devise in the future. Conversely. positive results. Changing the mind then involves changing the sounds within the mind. 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. Right now the brain/mind domain for most people is at the lowest level. I can get into a very complex and complicated discussion about it. as I cannot travel to every city and speak personally to all the people I would like to help. Currently the brain/mind domain is full of Bio-energy fields with dominant signals of poverty and pessimism. he or she has prosperity sounds in the brain/mind complex whether from this lifetime or an earlier one. This higher intelligence is not carved in logic. the videotapes. and I will be with you through this book.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. and I have modernized it for our contemporary use. I am hopeful that many of you reading this book will use the tools and experience incontestable.
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. They are all written at different time periods. it gives you a sense of false happiness. He records the predictions made by her. but then it is also true that Agastiya himself reincarnated several times. and he used the contemporary Tamil of that time in order to communicate to people. and during each time period he revealed a knowledge. there is a price we pay—we are sucked more and more into material laws. Even with our laser surgery. 220 Crystal science is a science that belonged to the older civilizations. Back to the Future You won’t have to sweat so much. It may or may not work. we have not eliminated suffering. is much more intelli221 . The ball showed her the future. Matter has dual consciousness: one is tremendous power to allure. that is between matter and energy. 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 yet the Tamil of each is “contemporary. 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. These literatures contain the clue. 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. We all know that our modern science and technology is only a few hundred years old. but a more ancient past of very ancient wisdoms. The life of the spirit is virtually non-existent in their lives. all other technologies will be open to revision as we incorporate a new. they look at the numerous volumes and volume attributed to Agastiya. We have to revive that science because it is truly going to give us infinite freedom. more profound understanding. our physical laws. I was reading Jean Dickson. The historians get confused about the works of Agastiya. However. They wonder if other people wrote something and then later said this was written by Agastiya. We have come so far to disbelieve anything that is not strictly limited to a material description and finite experience. It may have happened in some cases. the principles of the spirit. material principles. “if Jean Dickson could do it. All other sciences. Agastiya whose incarnation I am in this lifetime has incarnated seventeen times. metaphysical principles. still we have to go through surgery. Jean Dickson had a crystal ball that she looked into. negative vibrations that create doubt and so on. they are timeless. It makes tremendously sense to us on a theoretical level that energy or spirit is much more desirable. and then you can use the crystal to see the future and other extraordinary things. We are finding it difficult to deal with the process of aging the pain created by matter. We have not created anything perfect. For me. and a guy who wrote the book on Jean Dickson had been a newspaper columnist. We will have to drop off a lot of our mental constructs. in order to understand this higher Science. I don’t rule it out. Seldom do we understand the freedom that can happen if you follow other principles. Now I am referring to this because what is going to be created is similar to the crystal ball. seventeen times or more. the missing link.” The historians wonder if they are all really by Agastiya or interpolations of other texts. You can make connections with the crystal. everything is relative. and every time you fall prey to this false sense of happiness. It is not convincing for the scientifically-oriented to naturally believe in God or Spirit. so that their text will carry some weight. The Siddhas have existed forever. The question for us is to ask. The crystal is an energy vortex—it can carry and be a medium of great electromagnetic power.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.
Yet. And here again. 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. for instance. 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. Material existence is defined by a low level of intelligence—bondage to certain fleeting sensory experience. It is a tremendous statement. when he describes light and matter. bondage to a frozen concept of time which uses the experience of the past. Now Einstein. says that when light is stopped it begins to coagulate into matter. I am teaching you do not need to be Hindu to use the tools to 223 . Now they are two separate worlds connected only very. belongs to the old world. 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 want to repeat this: the new technology pertains to the domain where mind and matter meet. 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. When it manifests it becomes matter. Remember. The new technology that I am proposing will give us an understanding about the domain wherein mind and matter meet. There is a lot of literature available about him. it cannot be analyzed any farther. My disciples in that lifetime did not like it. and before then. had great mathematical understanding and was a scientist. present. These are all hindrances to understanding the divine intelligence. they thought that I was deep into my ego. It means you create something. The understanding of geometry will provide us tremendous clues about understanding the relationship between matter and spirit. and the future. This is very. but matter is stuck in one place. You put a dot. somebody told me. Plato described many solids and liquids through geometrical figures. was the Tamil Siddha Bogar in a previous lifetime. The Siddhas went one step further and came up with many geometrical shapes that link matter and spirit. this is from a very ancient literary source. very superficially. 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. I have characterized the nature of the higher intelligence. again. 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. very close to my heart. there was nothing. My evolution was such that even the divine beings were afraid of my evolution.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. I even challenged the Hindu gods during my lifetime as Swami Ramalingam because what I was teaching people was to focus just on Light.” 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. but we haven’t done anything to understand energy or to understand spirit. The Science of Sacred Geometry. the Tamil Siddha. It is everywhere. I was reading Einstein’s original writings. Einstein. 222 Geometrical Origins Geometry explains the origin of things. It is form being formed out of non-form or chaos. In a previous lifetime when I was Swami Ramalingam. In the Siddha literature they describe Bogar’s attempt to build a ship propelled by steam. This makes sense to me because Bogar. I was able to demonstrate to myself. so it seems plausible to me that Bogar could have been Einstein. we have to stop it here. and when it unmanifests it becomes energy.
but over a period of a few months. and as it was predicted in the Nadi. DC is a power spot on this earth-plane which affects the destinies of many countries. Arut Perum Jyoti 225 . And so it happened. the whole earth-plane is controlled out of Washington. and I am excited that we have computers and that the sciences have also evolved. Manikavacakar and Swami Ramalingam. The people of the United States have really balanced these two energies of matter and spirit more than any other country. I managed to get some water from this well and pour it on my head. that is how I came to know about my previous births as the enlightened teachers Agastiya. they have come to the West. And if you are religious. and the Siddhas will come to the same table in order to create the new technology for this new millennium. Some of them may have lived in Asian countries in past lives and studied yogic arts. information about my old lives came to me. Tani Perum Karunai. the government people. I am wishing you well in your Self-Discovery. and it was very important for me to do that. While I was Swami Ramalingam in 1874. but nothing came through in their photos when they were developed except the clothes that I was wearing on my body. regardless of their religious tradition. and he was very cordial. Material progress and enlightenment is not about religion. Photographers tried to photograph me when I was Swami Ramalingam after I transformed into the Light Body. The Unites States is a very blessed country. In fact. a priest was waiting for me. I will do my part. and I had to reconnect myself with those energies and integrate them into this life. But then. 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. As I went to them. and is best place to release these teachings. Arut Perum Jyoti. the 224 thirtieth of January under the star Pushya. Someday I will tell the story of how I learned this. that is fine. DC. I have come back now. So. We are doubly blessed. This city is on a power spot sacred to SI-VA. I am making this openly available to sincere spiritual seekers everywhere. and a technology of a new nature that is going to revolutionize the entire world should appropriately start out of the United States. I began to relive my past lifetime. Scientists. Many of the people who live here are blessed with a good karma. but in this life. He explained actually that there is no pool there now because people have forgotten the tradition. 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 sound “V” at some points in history switched in some places over to “W. I am thankful that so many more people seem receptive and this understanding and are more developed. It will continue to be an important power center. Arut Perum Jyoti. I put as much light as I could into people as they were receptive to receive at that time. I went into a room and said that I would be in divine communion with the light. He was an old man. Washington. I gave the message that I would disappear and so I did. The Nadi predicted that I would remember all my previous births after having sprinkled this water. I went there.” So Washington starts with the sounds WA-SI or VA-SI. but he knew exactly about this pool which was far away from this temple. During a Nadi reading in this lifetime. I was asked to go to various places connected with me in my past life and these places were charged with energy. but what is there instead is a well inside the pool. It did not take place immediately.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.
Matter and energy. It may appear to be a puzzle to you because the mind cannot conceive anything that is not logically sensible. the second pair is time and space and along with these two pairs is consciousness. of time and space. For instance. The known intelligence or known knowledge is limited. Without consciousness which is intelligence per se. “What is this intelligence of Siva?” It is the intelligence that is everywhere. With this Intelligence. will change our concepts of matter and energy. So. When I was reading Einstein this made tremendous sense to me. there is the known knowledge. and the other refers to those which are unknown. we can have everything instantaneously. 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. Thirumualar. I can give a clue of what is going to be involved in the creation of this new science and technology. They are subject to our own perception and our own perception is limited by our own intelligence. The unknown is also a category that is under some conceptual limitation. energy. and then there is the knowledge about the unknown. the known and the unknown. that is the known. There are two pairs the first pair is energy and matter. whatever you can or do know is limited. his knowledge is encyclopedic. time and space are not independent concepts. that which is not the unknown and that which is present eternity. Arut Perum Jyoti. Â 227 . nothing can exist. We are going to have tremendous understanding about time. We will then think that space is no longer as we thought it to be. is someone I have tremendous respect for 226 because I have not known a Siddha who is more knowledgeable. Thirumular talks about the intelligence of Siva. Siva is beyond the known. and space is dependent on the point of reference that we bring in. 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. for this is what the Siddhas talk about as non-referential knowledge. then we will have a different idea about matter and different idea about energy. the first Siddha. matter and the fifth element. Arut Perum Jyoti. Einstein. within our brain. the unknown. If we bring in more intelligence. Arut Perum Joyti. Then we will have heaven on earth. There are five factors that we are going to study at length which will give us this new science.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. and he makes a reference to two kinds of intelligence: one concerns those things which are generally known. says our concept of the reality of the world including time. It will be so beautiful to have this experience which will give us incredible freedom and joy. Thirumular says that Siva (Infinite Intelligence) is beyond this. consciousness. That is true evolution. and this change that we do within our mind. but whatever you do not know the meaning of— the unknown—is limitless. space. that which is not the known. for the unknown is open-ended. beyond the unknown. The intelligence that I want to develop for everyone during the coming millennium is Nonreferential Intelligence. the same with time. when talking about reality. Then the question is. more intelligent than Thirmular.
