Coming in terms with reality
In today’s morning Satsang, Paramahamsa Nithyananda delivers a crucial sacred secret – COMING TO TERMS WITH REALITY IS COMPLETION. When we are powerful, in front of reality -facing it - we know what we need to change and what we can change. We can even overcome the wrong concepts and fear about death, confronting death and completing with it. Let us all be in a powerful space of completion, coming to terms with reality!

Today, Rajarajeshwari Brahmotsava sixth day! Devi is gracing all of us on Suvarna Hamsa Vahana, Golden Hamsa, a mythological bird which is described as the embodiment of enlightenment, Suvarna Hamsa Vahana!
I will enter into the satsangh.
I will expand on beautiful, most important truth, in a way a sacred secret, in the process of Completion.
Please listen, Completion, Kalpataru, Inner Awakening, all one and the same. Kalpataru program is the introduction to the Science of Completion and Inner Awakening.
I welcome all the devotees gathered in Tiruvanmiyur-Chennai for Kalpataru program.
See, the inner awakening starts happening the moment the completion starts. Completion is nothing but coming to terms with reality, understand? Completion is nothing but coming to terms with reality. Unfortunately you cannot and you do not want to face the reality as it is, Kaalabhairava as it is. You put all your incompletions on him, your own imaginations on him, your own ideas on him, your own perceptions on him. Anything between you and the reality is incompletion. And coping up to face the reality is Completion.
This time I went to Varanasi for few days. And, naturally, my favourite place, Manikarnika Ghat, where hundreds of bodies are being burnt every day, we all went. Me and all my Swamis were sitting in the boat in the Ganga. We saw the double-decker and all! “Double-decker” means, one body will be burning; if there is no place, they will just add more wood on that same fire and put the body! World’s largest crematorium is the Manikarnika Ghat, because per day, average around three-hundred-and-fifty bodies they are burning, per day, average. 350. Sometimes it goes up to six-hundred! We are seeing in front of our eyes, the bodies burnt in a different level – legs stretched out, head stretched out. And I sincerely recommend all my disciples should spend at least, at least three-four days. If it is possible, eleven days or twenty-one days. If you can’t, at least three days. I tell you, I guarantee, if you are a CEO, you will become a better CEO; if you are a lawyer, you will become a better lawyer; if you are an engineer, you will become a better engineer. Just at least three days go and sit in the Manikarnika Ghat. Day in and day out, just see those bodies getting burnt. I promise, you will not fall into depression.
It is a western mentality you have been told, ‘If you see the dead body you will be in depression Oh....!’, and keeping the crematorium, cremation ground or burial ground, tombs completely away from the city. And also well-decorated. It is almost like a Royal Garden! Just to hide the reality of death you decorate it, pedicure it and manicure it, and make a beautiful garden. Alright you can make all that but inside what is there? Dead body! They want us to forget that, that is why they do all the pedicure, manicure and make so beautifully. You forget it is all dead bodies inside!
I tell you, sitting with Manikarnika where Mahadeva personally initiates everyone and liberates them, he initiates them into the Taraka Mantra. Please understand, a Shaivite. I may be a Shaivite, but I am telling the truth. He initiates people into Rama Mantra, Rama Nama.He just gives the Rama Nama, Taraka Mantra. Even this time I saw Mahadeva liberates people just by initiating them into Rama Nama. The moment he initiates, the moment the mantra touches that being, they are liberated!
Please listen. Listen. I guarantee you; you don’t have to be a dead body burning in the Manikarnika Ghat. Even if you sit there, in one day you will forget you are alive; you will simply associate yourself with one among the bodies getting burnt, and Mahadeva will initiate you also!
I tell you, coming to terms with reality is Completion. That automatically happens in Varanasi, in Manikarnika. How much ever I describe I may be a great orator, but in the orating, what all can happen in you when you see hundreds of dead bodies being burnt every moment, I cannot describe! Either you come to terms with reality, or....there is no “or” actually, just only one: you come to terms with reality! Fortunate are the May Inner Awakening participants who will be experiencing this in my presence, in Manikarnika Ghat in my presence. And I am also planning one batch of Gurukul kids; but only after the parents return consent. Parents have to give permission, only then. Because, I had the fortune of sitting in the cremation ground and seeing the bodies burning at the age of eleven, twelve, with a great Yogi, Ramsurat Kumar. I had such a wonderful introduction about death by Ramsurat Kumar. Understand it’s an amazing introduction. Nothing can equate his words and his way of introducing.
I asked him one day out of curiosity. They were bringing one dead body.
I asked him, ‘Swami, Swami, he has gone to heaven or hell?’ I asked him in Tamil, ‘Sollunga, ivan narakam ponaana Swami....?’
He laughed and said....he told in Tamil, ‘Ada, engeyum pogalai pa! Ivan irukkumpodhu engey irundhaano, angey thaan irukkaan!’
I’ll translate: ‘People don’t go to hell or heaven. When they were alive what kind of space they were in that will only continue!’
Please understand, when you are alive, make heaven for you by creating Completion within you and Completion with others. While you are alive, make heaven for yourself. While you are alive, make heaven for yourself. Don’t make hell for you. While you are alive, make heaven for yourself! If you are in het hell now, if you die now, don’t think you will move to heaven or somewhere else. No.
I was shocked actually when he said these words. ‘Hey, nobody goes anywhere!’ He told in a very colloquial Tamil...he addressed me as a child in the singular, ‘Hey, engeyum pogalai da! Irukkumpodhu irundha idam than iruppaanga!’
He doesn’t know Tamil. He is from Kashi. So, he picked up the North Arcot Tamil, very slang Tamil the area I was in and brought up. He said, ‘Nobody goes anywhere. When they were alive what space they are in, that same space continues that’s all!’
Come to terms with reality NOW! Let reality not bring powerlessness in you. Let reality not lead you to incompletion. Let reality not make you suffer. Let reality not make you powerless. Coming to terms with reality is Completion. Please listen, coming to terms with reality is Completion. Don’t think I am promoting Manikarnika Ghat because I am going to do Inner Awakening there! No. Even if you don’t come with me for Inner Awakening, you go on your own and sit on the Manikarnika Ghat, you will see Mahadeva, Mahakaala, Kaalabhairava blesses you also with the Taraka Mantra and liberates you also. You don’t have to die and get burnt there. Just sit in that atmosphere; automatically your inner-space will start getting burnt.
Actually, I cannot describe. We were all sitting in a boat, may be, I think, eight of us – four sannyasis and four sannyasinis, Ma Swamis and Shri Swamis. We can see somebody's legs are out, some head is out. One day we saw from the above: both hands are burnt and the chest is fresh, even the skin has not peeled! So the he is bringing wood from the other fire and arranging on that body! I looked at one of my Sannyasini, Ma Swami and said ‘See, all your kaajal will melt like that only!’ Once in a while, you should remember the truth at least.
And, I tell you, the reality of death is not at all depressing if you understand the reality.
One of my Swamis asked, ‘Swamiji, if we all die, we will all be with you only, no?’
I said, ‘Yes it is just department change that’s all don’t worry! It is only department transfer. Not even ashram transfer, just department transfer!’
The reality of death is not at all depressing. I tell you, if you sit with the right understanding from the right context, it will bring so much joy in you, so much Completion in you. When you see so many bodies continuously burning so much of introspection will happen.
I wanted to tell all of you, don’t bring up your kids with the western idea of death, understand? They don’t even know about life, what will they know about death? Come on! They should understand, introspect, contemplate death, learn from the higher source. See, when Ramsurat Kumar told me this, I did not have a second thought this is the way death is. At this age, that kind of a person who should be telling the truth and I can hundred percent guarantee, my gurukul kids will not have a doubt or a second thought when I describe about death the same thing I learned from Ramsurat Kumar. When I tell my kids, I am hundred percent sure they simply internalize it, they simply imbibe it. I can be hundred percent sure my kids will have an extraordinary experience.
Coming to terms with reality. I wanted to repeat this word again and again so that you understand because hundreds of devotees write in Facebook to me. They write, ‘Swamiji, whatever you say in the morning satsangh goes on inside us the whole day. We are just soaked in it because of the way it is said’ Not just what is said, the way it is said! Listen, because every truth I reveal in the morning satsangh, I will be repeating it twenty-five times in that half-an-hour! So many times.
Coming to terms with reality. Today meditate on this: COMING TO TERMS WITH THE REALITY IS COMPLETION. I am not saying you should not change reality. I am not saying you accept reality. I am only saying, reality should not make you powerless, that’s all. Be powerful in front of reality, with reality, and you will know where you can change, where YOU have to change. Where you can change and where YOU have to change! Just decide: ‘No powerlessness. Let’s be friends.’ That is all you need to do with reality. ‘No powerlessness. Let us be friends. I will be powerful, you will be powerful, let both of us be powerful!’ Coming to terms with reality is Completion.
Today, in the Inner Awakening all the participants are going to go through the death process. It is one of the wonderful processes to come to terms with reality.
This time, when I went to Kashi, I had two joker Swamis also with me.
And I told these fellows, ‘Why don’t you go and sit in the Manikarnika Ghat and meditate?’
And they all got completely inspired and got ready.
They said, ‘Tonight we are going Swamiji!’ And prepared everything.
Next day morning, when I came back, I thought both of them are going to be shining, enlightened, radiating enlightenment after having darshan of Mahakaala in the Maha Smashaana. But both faces were as usual, same. ‘Errrr.’
I asked, ‘What happened?’
They said, ‘No...yesterday night we slept away....we didn’t go...’
And junior joker is telling, ‘I called this fellow; he did not come. So I didn’t go!’
When death comes you cannot call him and go baba!
And this joker is asking me, ‘I want to go for parivrajaka in Himalayas.’! One night this joker cannot go and sit in the Manikarnika Ghat and meditate!
All of you, I sincerely recommend all my devotees, all my disciples, if you think you can get some good from me, I give you this as my experience, experiential introduction, experiential instruction. Whether you are ten-year old or ninety-years old please go and spend at least three days in Manikarnika Ghat, Varanasi, seeing these bodies getting burnt. Just seeing will teach you so many truths about death. The way that death is treated, that very context, the context from which the dead and death are treated will teach you all the lessons, all the lessons you need in your life.
Coming to terms with reality is Completion. Coming to terms with reality gives you the power like Kalpataru. Whatever you want goes on becoming reality. Whatever you want goes on becoming reality. Understand? Whatever you want goes on becoming reality.
Every time you are in incompletion be very clear you are not coming to terms with reality. Whether incompletion with yourself or incompletion with others, coming to terms with reality is Completion.
I’ll repeat: Coming to terms with reality is Completion! Coming to terms with reality is Completion! This should ring in your ears whole day and night. When people write to me in the Facebook, ‘Whatever you say in the morning satsangh is ringing in my ears, Swamiji!’, I am so happy, because the whole morning satsangh is designed for that. The whole day you go on functioning from this cognition. That is why all the major cities of India I wanted them to have a City Centre like how we have developed Bangalore City Centre. Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, all cities should have a Centre where people gather every morning 7 to 8 and attend the satsangh. 8 o’clock they will go to office. The Centre itself will give breakfast like Bangalore Centre. Satsangh, breakfast, and go to office. That’s all. Such nice routine to follow, to follow. I wanted all over the world this to become a trend.
So, coming to terms with reality is Completion. Let reality not make you powerless. Always be powerful with reality so you will know whether you change the reality or you have to change yourself. You will simply have intelligence and do it spontaneously as and when required. You will not have the attitude of conquering, you will not have the attitude of competing; you will have the attitude of completing. Don’t have the attitude of competing or conquering the reality. You will just have the attitude of completing.
