In this (10th June, 2014) morning’s satsang, Paramahamsa Nithyananda spoke about Self ‘Drive. He explained that Self Drive is the source of the knowledge we hold; Saraswathi and if self drive dries up it is from violence or greed. The reason for acquiring knowledge is to be sure you have the right context for self drive. Self drive is the only energy you have and it can be brought forward to the next life. Self drive in the right context is Living Advaitha and the scale to measure integrity, authenticity, responsibility and enriching.

I welcome all of you with my love and respect.
Today I wanted to expand on this one word, SELF-DRIVE.
Please understand, self-drive is the source of the knowledge a human-being has. Means, that is Saraswathi. Knowledge is not the number of books you read, Knowledge is not the number of concepts you know; Knowledge is the amount of self-drive you have. Understand, giving the right context to the self-drive is only the job of Saraswathi, Knowledge. When there is a right context, self-drive never gets dried up. If it gets dried up, it is from the wrong context, it is the lower level pleasures; it is not self-drive. Self-drive which gets dried up is from violence, or from greed.
Please understand, the self-drive which comes out of fear and greed gets dried up just in a few days. Giving the right context for your self-drive is the job of Saraswathi. All the knowledge, the reason for all the knowledge, reason for all the books, reason for all the knowledge-transmission mechanism is to give you the right context for your self-drive....to give the right context for your self-drive! Giving the right context for your self-drive is the source, purpose, reason, cause, sole cause of your knowledge. And, I tell you, your self-drive is the greatest wealth you can have which will never be lost, which will come with you for births after births after births! Self-drive is the one and only wealth you can carry from one birth to another birth.
Please understand, if you want to go to the U.S., you have to change Indian currency to U.S. currency. If you want to come from U.S. to India, you have to change U.S. currency to Indian currency. The same currency will not be useful in the other country. Same way, when you leave the body, whatever you accumulated in this birth wealth, love, relationships, properties nothing will be useful in the next birth, but the self-drive you accumulated will be there with you in your bio-memory as your asset. I tell you, self-drive is Lakshmi. Self-drive is the ultimate wealth, ultimate asset anyone can accumulate, anyone can acquire. Not having self-drive is nothing but deep hatred towards you or towards others, life.
I tell you, whoever does not have self-drive has a deep negative pattern about life and others. They are constantly abusing life and others, criticizing life and others, have deep incompletion with others and life. Self-drive is the highest wealth anyone can accumulate. I tell you, you can lose anything, but don't lose your self-drive, and especially in the right context. Setting up the right context for your self-drive and, listen, and driving yourself continuously is the greatest wealth.
I wanted to remind all of you, all tiredness, all boredom, is nothing but the self-conflicts and self-contradictions, self-conflicts and self-contradictions. Self-conflicts and self-contradictions! People with self-drive are rewarded by Kaalabhairava with life. People who don't have that are slammed by life, Kaala. Understand, self-drive is life. From the right context, self-drive from the right context, self-drive from the right space! Self-drive is the only energy, Durga, you can have. Nothing else is energy. Not your muscle power, or your thinking power, all that is not the top energy.
Self-drive is THE energy of life, understand? Self-drive is Saraswathi. Self-drive is Lakshmi. Self-drive is Durga. Driving yourself constantly! I tell you, anything which stops your self-drive from the right context is incompletion; immediately complete it and get rid of it. It is your incompletions; immediately complete it and get rid of it. Self-drive from the context of Advaitha is what I call Advaithic Activism. I request the Sangha, Nithyananda Sangha to start using more and more the word Advaitha, Living Advaitha, Science of Living Advaitha. Advaitha, the word Advaitha should replace the word Enlightenment in our Sangha, because the word Enlightenment is loaded with too much of corruption. It is hijacked and loaded, polluted, corrupted with so much of meaning, and so much of difficulty, so much of fear. I think, for what I am offering to the world, not only the truths, even the title has to be something original.
So, we will make this word Advaitha itself as English word, and WE will give the meaning to it! Advaitha looks more Sanatana Hindu than the word Enlightenment. So, I request the Sangha Publications and all the departments to start using more and more the word Living Advaitha, Advaitha replacing the word Enlightenment, because Living Advaitha seems to be more closer to the heart of Sanatana Hindu than the word Enlightenment. Living Advaitha, Living Advaitha is so easy, and, I tell you, having self-drive to live Advaitha is Advaithic Activism. That IS Advaithic Activism. Having self-drive to live Advaitha is Advaithic Activism. Advaitha becoming life, lifestyle, Advaitha becoming thinking style, Advaitha becoming your cognition!
I tell you, the only obstacle you have to live Advaitha is not having self-drive. When you are having intense self-drive, you reach the heights of life, possibilities of life. When your self-drive reduces, reduces, reduces, when it becomes zero, you are dead, that's all! When your self-drive to breathe, if it is taken over by impossibility, you are dead; if that is more alive than your impossibility, then you are alive; that's it!
Understand, your self-drive is very, very, very important. Your self-drive is the most powerful, important component of life. Highest self-drive is life, youth energy. In our Sangha, I understand whether somebody is growing spiritually or not, only based on their self-drive. I understand whether a spiritual process is working on them or not based on their self-drive. It is self-drive that makes you a leader. It is self-drive that makes you a successful being. It is self-drive that makes you an Advaithi. It is self-drive that makes you Living Advaitha. It is self-drive that makes you a Jeevan Muktha.
Self-drive from the right context makes you a Jeevan Muktha. Anywhere you read any concept against self-drive from the right context, be very clear, it is not spiritual teaching. Self-drive from the wrong context can be criticized; that needs to be completed. Self-drive from fear and greed should be completed, but self-drive itself should not be given up.
It is very unfortunate, the Vedantic books have spoken so ill of self-drive from fear and self-drive from greed, self-drive from the wrong context; finally, you gave up self-drive itself....which is completely wrong....which is completely wrong! If I visualize Mahadeva, I will visualize him as the embodiment of self-drive. This is the best way I wanted to be known by the world, this is the best anyakaara I wanted to have, this is the best way I wanted people to see me as the embodiment of self-drive! Embodiment of self-drive! Understand, self-drive from the right context, self-drive from the right context!
Our Sangha is nothing but I am giving an opportunity for everyone to set their self-drive from the right context and explode....set their self-drive from the right context and explode. Whether it is Gurukul, or the schools, colleges we are running, or the.......
Nithyananda Dhyanapeetam itself, Nithyananda Sangha itself should be the symbol of self-drive from the right context. The Bhagwa Jhanda (saffron flag) of Nithyananda Sangha flies on self-drive from the right context. The kaavi flag of Nithyananda Sangha flies high from the right context of self-drive. Self-drive, listen, self-drive from the right context, self-drive from the right context, self-drive from the Advaithic space to live and radiate Advaitha, self-drive from the Advaithic space to live and enrich yourself and others is the goal of life; that is the purpose of life; that is the reason for life; that is why life exists. Person with self-drive is alive. Person who loses the self-drive is dead. Person with self-drive lives the highest space. Person who loses self-drive destroys himself.
The verse in Bhagavad Gita, the words of Sri Krishna:-
Uddhared atmanatmana? natmanam avasadayet | atmaiva hyatmano bandhur atmaiva ripur atmana? || 6-5 ||
This is the exact interpretation I will give: Raising your self-drive by yourself by setting the right context, you will be a great friend for yourself. If you cannot raise your self-drive by yourself by setting the right context, you are the greatest enemy for you. It is self-drive that makes you king or beggar. It is self-drive that gives you self-respect or not. It is self-drive that gives you the ability to exist, self-drive that gives you the strength to live. Self-drive is the love for life. Self-drive is the devotion for life. Self-drive is the commitment towards life. Self-drive is the scale to measure your Authenticity, Integrity, Responsibility and Enriching.
Last three days, in the Nithya Dhyan Yoga, I have defined Integrity, Authenticity, Responsibility clearly: Aligning your inner-image and outer-image is Integrity. If inner-image and outer-image are aligned, you will never tell a lie. That is Integrity. Building your others-image is Responsibility. How you want others to perceive you, working for building it is Responsibility. How you want to perceive others, building that kind of a personality, incident, situations around you is Enriching. Aligning all the four identities to the highest possibility is Authenticity.
Listen! Listen! Whether it is Integrity, or Authenticity, or Responsibility, or Enriching, it all boils down to self-drive! When you have self-drive from the right context, you are young and you don't have death! Please understand, even after death, you will exist in that eternal silence and do what you need to do, do what you decided to do. I am very clear, even if I leave this body, I will never disappear; I will be available in all my deities; through all my deities I will continue to be available and do what I have to do, and do what I decided to do. Whether I have this body or the body of my deities, I won't disappear. As long as I have this body, I work through this body.
When I leave this body, I will work through all my deities. Even now I work through all my deities, that's different. Even after I leave my body I will just continue to exist through all my deities and do what I need to do, because my self-drive cannot be reduced even by death.
See, self-drive cannot be reduced by anything is Amara, eternal life. If your self-drive cannot be taken away by anything, disease or death, even death cannot touch your self-drive, means you are Amara, you will exist forever! If you have set the right context for your self-drive, you will be in Kailaasa, Nithyananda Loka. If you have set fear as the context for your self-drive, you will be in Paathaala, like Raakshasaas, demons. If you set greed as the context for your self-drive, you will be in Indra Loka, singing and dancing and enjoying. If you have set Advaitha as the context for your self-drive, you will be in Nithyananda Loka, Kailaasa.
People with highest self-drive don't die. Mara never happens to them. Marana (death) never happens to them. They become Amara (immortal). Self-drive is the solution for the problems as simple as boredom, and that is the strategy planning for as highest as crossing death! Whether you want to cross your simple day-to-day boredom, tiredness, or you want to cross death itself, self-drive is the solution, self-drive is the solution, self-drive from the right context is the solution, self-drive from the right context is the solution, self-drive from the right context is the solution. Now I tell you all, self-drive from the right context is Living Advaitha!
The essence of today's satsangh: Self-drive from the right context! Let you all radiate with Integrity, Authenticity, Responsibility, Enriching and Causing eternal bliss, Nithyananda! Thank you!
