did not visit this planet to keep you amused in poor and paralyzing consolations but to break the mental prison.

There are no two

There are no two

Human consciousness is constituted by its contents comprising of cultural inputs and conditioning. There is no part of the conspicuous self-consciousness which is outside the net-work of its contents.

to die to the illusion ‘I’ every moment so that a human being can live in Intelligence from moment to moment without the burden of the past and the ‘becoming’ of the future.



There is no psychological evolution or development. There is only the ending and demolition of the separative psyche ‘I’, for the emergence of divinity which is the awakening of Intelligence.

What is Awareness?

Paris, 11 December 2005

  1. Awareness is the movement of Actuality. It is not the manoeuvre of abstractions and ascriptions.
  2. Awareness pertains to the real thing, not to the thought and the theory about the thing.
  3. Awareness is concerned with the fact, not with the fancy and fallacy camouflaging the fact.
  4. Awareness belongs to ‘what is’, not to ‘what should be’.
  5. Awareness leads to freedom and emptiness, not to fragmentation of the experience-structure.
  6. Be aware of your neurosis!
  7. Rise to the awareness of your (mind’s) conflicts, confusion and chaos; not run into concepts, conclusion and concoction.
  8. Be awake to your awareness, don’t remain asleep in your ambition.
  9. Awareness is intelligence, assertion is merely intellectual.
  10. Be aware of your guilt & gullibility, of your greed and god, of your glorification and gratification.
  11. Don’t carry the burden of your belief-systems, symbols, images, motives, taboos, prejudices, superstitions, pretentions; just be aware of them.
  12. Be aware of your pursuits for power, possessions, position, prominence; don’t seduce yourself by paradoxes and prayers.
  13. Find out if the consciousness can be aware of itself without splitting itself into two — ‘me’ and ‘my consciousness’.
  14. Be aware that although you have a unique body, you are not an individual! You are the whole humanity! There is diversity but no division.
  15. Be aware of the self-hypnotic techniques being sold in the spiritual market as meditation and thus be available to the sacred movement of spontaneous meditation.
  16. Awareness is the only morality which wakes you up to the immorality of the power of money, to the insistence on worldliness that industrialism has brought about and to the idiocy of ideologies. And out of such an awareness comes an extraordinary sense of immensity which no President, no Prime Minister, no Pope, no Paramahansa is aware of!
  17. Awareness makes the following miracles in the Psyche:
    • Breaks the bifurcation between the observer and the observed.
    • Sees the actual without abstraction.
    • Comprehends without the ladder of concepts and conclusions.
    • Demolishes the darkness of duality.
    • Flashing of freedom from fragmentations in the field of consciousness begins.
    • Knows without getting into the trap of Knower and the Knowledge (Vedanta process).
    • Overthrows the obscurity of opposites.
    • Rejects reaction or re-iteration for adequate response to resurrect.
    • Sees without the separative process in the consciousness.
    • Surrenders without subservience.
    • Thinks outside the corridor of the Thinker (past) and the Thought (future).
    • Understands without undertaking.
    • Views without vanity.
    • Watches without words.
    • Meditates without the meditator.
    • Ego is held in abeyance for the emptiness to speak.

(An utterance from Lahiri Mahashaya)

Epilogue 1: Guru Nanak’s Mantra on Awareness

Ekamkar Satnam Karta purukh Nirbhayo Nirwaer Akal murat Ajuni Saebhang Guru prasad

Ekamkar: ‘It’ is the same divinity without division despite diversity.
Satnam: ‘It’ is the truth — vast and existential.
Karta purukh: ‘It’ is the Energy and Intelligence. (Prakriti & Purush of Gita and Chiti-Shakti of Patanjali).
Nirbhayo: ‘It’ has nothing to do with fears or apprehensions of the embodied consciousness.
Nirwaer: ‘It’ is beyond all conflicts of opposites and enmity.
Akal murat: ‘It’ transcends all limitation in time and space.
Ajuni: ‘It’ has no beginning (and therefore no end too).
Saebhang: ‘It’ is revealed naturally by itself.
Guru prasad: ‘It’ is the ultimate grace of the Guru Process.

Epilogue 2: Meaning of the word ‘GURU’

GU: from Gupta, that is, camouflaged, covered, darkness. RU: from Rudra, that is, fire, light.
So, GURU implies the process of dispelling darkness.

Paris, 14 December 2006

Translated from the Hindi original at the request of Bulgarian Kriyabans for further translation in their language

Kriya Yoga phenomenon emanates from Swadhyay and Swadhyay flowers from seeing without seeking, that is, from seeing which has no see-er, but only the object to be seen! Such is the energy of total seeing that the separation between the see-er and the seen ceases naturally! This is Shakshi Bhava – one of the three basic teachings of Kriya Yoga.Oh my dear Kriya Yogi; at the outset, for God's sake, be a Sakshi! Be in non-doership, not in non-doing! Be available to impartial insight! Be a Shakshi! Do not re-iterate, do not renunciate, but re-incarnate! Be in pure action, be a Sakshi!

An act of renunciation which is full with activities of ‘I’, is merely a pretension. This renunciation is fake as it stinks with cunning calculation and with garbage of glorification. What is this renunciation which compels one to renounce a short and sweet name awarded by parents, in order to decorate oneself with an astonishingly long name such as ‘Himalayan Avatar and Yogi … Babaji Maharaj’! What is this renunciation which inspires one to become the supreme boss of a multi-million dollar ‘Ashram’ (actually a concentration camp and sometimes even a brothel!) after abandoning a normal house-hold? Oh my dear Kriya Yogi, for God's sake, be awake; be a Sakshi.

Bhagawat Gita takes us from Sub-human to human and then to divine, from Duryodhan to Arjun and then to Krishna, from thoughtlessness to thought and then to ‘no-thought’, from mindlessness to mind and then to ‘no-mind’.

Freedom from the burden and bondage of thought and mind which has been indicated as ‘no-thought’ and ‘no-mind’, is not thoughtlessness or mindlessness which is stupidity. This freedom from thought is the highest wisdom, greatest enlightenment. ‘No-thought’ is divine, neither delight nor depression. Oh my dear Kriya Yogi, for God's sake, do not be a glutton or a lecher, do not run into fasting or withdrawl, but be in freedom and comprehension, be a Sakshi.

Adhyatma is Atma + Adhyayan. Swadhyay is Swa + Adhyay. Both have the same implication, same meaning; that is, meditate on ‘I’ – ego-centric movement without ‘meditator’. Swadhyay is the beginning of Kriya Yoga. Doing Tapas (Kriya) without Swadhyay, without looking at one's motives, images, beliefs, conditioning, confusion, cravings, pride, envy, exploitation, fear, grief, has no meaning whatsoever! Without concomitant Swadhyay, Kriya (Tapas) will create conflict, boredom or excitement of conditioned reflexes and agitation of ambition. Understanding of need and greed is to usher in trust, integration, wakefulness, surrender and Sakshi Bhava. Oh my dear Kriya Yogi, for God's sake, for the sake of Ishwara Pranidhan, do not become a professional, repetitive, imitative, habitual ‘kriya yogi’! But be a Sakshi.

Oh my dear Kriya Yogi, for God's sake, for the sake of the perception of the whole consciousness, stop all this nonsense of self-inflation, self-expansion, self-promotion, self-perversion, self-glorification, self-reconstruction, self-centered-activities, self-gratification, self-delusion, self-nourishment, self-control, self-torture, self-suppression, self-oppression under the banner of self-realization, self-development and self-enlightenment! Instead, watch ‘what is’ with wisdom and without wavering. Scrutinise ‘what is’, examine ‘what is’ directly without pressures, prejudices and paradoxes of past ‘experiences’ and borrowed ‘knowledge’. Just be a Sakshi.

Oh my dear Kriya Yogi, for God's sake, abandon rituals, psychological registrations, pride, envy, comparison; come to emptiness, to existence, to eternal joy. Stop collecting the garbage of scriptures and sermons. Come to veracity, come to vivacious beauty and benediction of the sacred un-nameable! Just be a Sakshi.

Oh my dear Kriya Yogi, for God's sake, please understand that the natural state (after-state-poise of Kriya which is called Paravastha) is existential. It is not a state conjured up by the corruption, conspiracy, cunningness and crookedness of the experience-structure. Paravastha is sudden, unexpected, unforeseen, inconceivable but perceptible transformation in human consciousness which is not a modified continuity of old obscurity. This is the greatest religion, supreme wisdom. Phoney baloney of the spiritual market cannot camouflage this wisdom. Paravastha is indeed unique and is totally outside the vicious chain of cause and effect. It is not a vulgar ‘achievement’ put together by a stupid mind. More you seek Paravastha, more you lose it! And then on the basis of a contrived and fake Paravastha, you (mind) will deceive yourself and others; and you (mind) will inaugurate a glamorous shop in the spiritual market!

Therefore, oh my dear Kriya Yogi, for God's sake, be in the energy of understanding. Be a Sakshi.

Virtue of a Kriya Yogi is not in his point of view, but in his perception while he is viewing without any choice, any classification, any justification or condemnation. Oh my dear Kriya Yogi, this is Sakshi Bhava. Be a Sakshi only.

Oh my dear Kriya Yogi, stop anticipation and accumulation. Then renunciation becomes redundant!

There is absolute peace and love where there is neither attachment nor aversion. In Paravastha, there is only action; no activity of reaction, envy and competition. Learn to live without election, without entanglement. Just be a Sakshi.

Truth is in your daily living, inside your consciousness. It is not in your religious scriptures or in ‘spiritual’ or ‘occult’ books. From the scriptures, books, ‘gurus’, ‘masters’, ‘avatars’, ‘son of God’, ‘prophets of God’, ‘tirthankars’, ‘buddhas’, ‘murtis’, ‘bhagwans’, ‘paramahansas’, ‘swamis’, ‘anandas’, ‘giris’, ‘saraswatis’, ‘yatis’ and so on; you will get only confusing ideas, commodities for conforming and contrived consolations to re-orient, to re-educate, to re-accomplish and to politely perpetuate your ego, however hidden. But to be available to truth, to ‘what is’; there must occur a blast and an explosion while remaining a Sakshi in the dimension of Swadhyay, Tapas and Ishwara Pranidhan or, in other words, in the dimension of non-dual exploration, experimentation and enlightenment. Religions arising from scriptures get sabotaged by ideas, theologies and ‘I’, leaving truth in the lurch, giving rise to all kinds of controversies and the culture of killing and being killed. Scriptures are bondages & bigotry of borrowed knowledge, of battle and of brutality. Freedom from the known past is waking up in ‘no-mind’ in Sakshi.
