Discourse of Sadguru Sri Nannagaru at Jinnuru
Date: 18 May 2010
My Dear Soul - mates
We are celebrating Shankara Jayanthi today. The great
ACHARYA - SHANKARA CHARYA, was born in KALADI. At
the age of Five years his thread ceremony was done and in
GURUKUL at the age of Eight years all his education was
completed. The great Acharya is the manifestation of
Dakshinamurthy (LORD SHIVA) Himself. He traveled far and
wide, North and South, East and West to propagate self knowledge
and He unified Hinduism and India. He is the greatest amongst the
saints and the monks.
Everything happens in its own time. Life is endless.
Self-knowledge is the only teaching the rest is misery. Anything
learnt with the mind is not true learning. True Teaching is beyond
name and form. The Teachers should have experience only then,
then can teach. Hear, Listen to the subject properly, then
contemplate without separateness, you will become one with God. By
chanting the name of God al the faults will get washed away.
Withdraw from the dualities and defects, Here and now you will get
salvation in this body itself. God, Sri Krishna said, the only one to be
known is self-knowledge. Self is consciousness, intellect is (Jada),
inert, insentient, intellect is not self, Life also is not self, We all are
also not self the body, mind, Sense-organs etc are not self. Practice
inner-sight, become introvert, sweeten and soften the mind and
make it purest and whitest. Whenever possible do at latest one good
work even any small work. Do not leave Holy company even when
available for few minutes. Nothing is true for Destiny and Nothing is
true for time. Everything Happens according to your karma
(Accumulated actions), therefore do not blame anybody and do not
lose your mental peace. The mind gets wandering and you will get
spoiled . Under any circumstances do not leave peace of mind. Do
not forget God, Do not forget Love, Do not forget Devotion, Be
devoted to the Lotus feet of God, Devotion is greater than Love. Be
as you Are. Devotion will teach you. The Acharya, Guru, Saint
blesses you here itself, 90% of your work is done here itself, only 10% you need to practice at home make
effort, Try, practice, Respect the Guru, Acharya, otherwise Guru's
teaching s ( nectar) will not enter into your Heart.
Dispel negligence, laziness, weakness, ignorance now, if not,
then what other work will you do now? Why are you always busy
and you never seem to have time. For whom or For what are you
busy? Let me know, what important work do you have? Do
perform your duty and utilize the rest of the time to know God.
Have you ever helped anybody at physical, mental, intellectual or
Spiritual Level? Aim High and Aim at the Highest. Control your
mind by Holy Company. Mind is your best friend and enemy too.
Cleanse your mind yourself no outsider will come and do it. 1000
external enemies are not harmful but when your mind is our
enemy, it is very dangerous and harmful, only by Guru's grace can
it be cured, even deep and strong Karma(accumulated actions),
hindrances, obstacles get washed away by Guru's (saint) grace.
People may behave in a good or bad way with you, you wish
for every body's welfare. Having Selfish motive, desire, dualities, separateness ignorance in the mind, How can you
aspire for self-knowledge? When the mind gets diluted, purified
and controlled then it becomes one with God, like the river merges
into the ocean. It is the most natural, normal, sweetest and
intelligent way, Where there is intellectual understanding, there is
no sorrow. By devotion, Spiritual practice, Holy company and
Guru's(saint) grace, in the Course of time you will be blessed with
self-knowledge. No physical or intellectual exercise, only effort,
tolerance and Tappas (penance, spiritual practice) are required
and when it gradually ripens on its own, then it will fall naturally
Whoever becomes subtle, fine, small minute, egoless,
pride less, with humility places himself in the feet of God, craving
and longing to know God, identification with God, then he
experiences that Supreme State, that oneness and it is beyond birth
Do not get feared of the world and do not produce fear in the
world. Do not suffer at any point of time and Do not cause
suffering at any time. Do not get emotional while fortunes arrive
and Never get depressed when misfortunes strike. Try and
experience universal oneness, when we all are one, whom will we
see and feel jealous or get feared of ? Cultivate good and great
qualities depth and broad-mindedness, so that they should become
natural and one with you even though they may not be inborn.
Everything is ended by forgiveness. Understanding itself is yoga.
Acharya Guru, saint bless you with(Silence), by teaching and
preaching too. Practice dispassion, the mind should not set on
anything get the mind back from external attractions, enjoyments,
but the mind does not listen to you but by awareness of the subject
and receiving it properly and by practice it will try dispassion. By
ignorance, un-education, wrong thinking , wrong attitude, we
loved, we enjoyed and got stuck in previous births in the form of
tendencies which are endless and they follow us in every birth and
equally they do not allow us to get withdraw from them, for which
sadhana ( Spiritual practice) is not sufficient, Acharyas grace and
Guru's grace is required.
Acharya, Guru, saint, while preaching, He goes on cleansing
He Loves, He knows, He not only preaches but also makes you
experience and whatever cause is a hindrance to your spiritual
progress, will remove the cause by the root and will make you pure
and total and then you will become one with God. Pray to God to
make me as faultless and pure as you are and then unite me with
you. Pray to make me fit and Prepare me faultless for faultless
means That is Fire. That is Truth, AND THE TRUTH IS ONE. You
must know the TRUTH and you shall know the TRUTH and That
TRUTH will make you free, Freedom from sorrow, rebirth, ups and
downs, tensions, freedom from everything that is nonsense.
Happiness every where and no more re-births. Make maximum
effort sincerely, Now and Here, Do good work, Do not lose peace
and humility Always Be in Holy company, Ask and it shall be given.
Acharya gives all the peace and Happiness to you. Acharya blesses
you with self-knowledge by whatever means or way.
LOVE TO YOU PEACE TO YOU
THANKS TO ALL
