Question: Nobody in this world is
free of sufferings. To be free from sufferings what should be done?
Kalki Bhagavan: That’s very simple. Please follow seven truths to be
free from suffering.
1. Everything comes from a single source. It
could be God or Energy. There is no beginning and end to life.
2. If you identify this source, you’ll not differentiate between good, bad,
right or wrong. All these things are our views. Everything came from one
3. Life is nothing but your search for ‘Self’. In your life, things that
happen to you, people you see, everything reflects your ‘Self’. If you are
suffering from poverty, it means there something wrong within yourself. You
have to correct this to get out of poverty. If you have hatred, then who
ever you see will exhibit the same quality. If you have evil thoughts,
people you meet will also have evil thoughts. Try to understand yourself
4. Realize that anything you experience in this Life is by God’s grace.
Supposing you slip while walking, try to realize that as God’s grace too. If
you see God in everything, your life will become wonderful.
5. Realize that anything you experience in this Life is just a ‘test’ for
you by God. It is not a bad experience. If it is considered as a bad
experience then it would mean that God is not compassionate. If you
experience a problem, consider it an opportunity for you to face it and come
out of it. You’ve been given people, wealth and confidence to face
challenges. If you understand this, your confidence will improve. Just to
test your confidence God gives you a test.
6. If you realize that anything you experience is a test for you by God,
then you’ll be able to think deep about the problem and handle it in a
better way. You’ll understand its result. Then you’ll have no fear.
7. If you understand the above 6 truths, then there will be an enormous
transformation in your body. From then on, you’ll not only have compassion,
but you’ll become that ‘compassion’.
If you follow these, your relationships would improve. It’ll be filled with
love. If you attain this stage you are ready for the ‘operation’ I
mentioned. You’ll experience the divine grace experienced by saints like
Ramana, Adishankara. You’ll have no fear or sorrow. You’ll have only Joy.
Don’t try to
analyze this logically. Our aim is Mukthi. If you follow these truths for
even 21 days, you’ll be joyful. The problem with us is we spread just the
sorrow and sufferings. That’s why Earth is dying. After you experience Joy
and Happiness you’ll be able to spread only Joy and Happiness to others.
Question: By becoming aware of the doubts, can we remove those doubts?
Answer: You can to a large extent but still the brain will again jump
into that mode. For that you must have control over these three energies.
Suppose your house has got a north east cut, then the blaming mode will be
highly activated. The north-east cut will activate the manipura chakra in a
particular way and the brain will always be blaming. So, the house vastu is
also equally important. Chakra dhyana is very important . Otherwise there is
absolutely no control. Your mind is taking you for a ride.
To do Chakra Dhyana you should be at least twelve years of age. Pranayama
can be taught, but not pranakriyas. Ajneya chakra dhyana can be taught to
Question: Why does the mind always go towards negative thoughts and
Answer: You live in a world where the whole system is so structured.
See, your negative thoughts are not your thoughts. That’s the fundamental
teaching of the Dharma. So, like in TV depending on the channel you are
switching on, you attract certain programmes.
In this thought sphere there are also both negative and positive programmes.
Depending on the way your chakras are aligned, you start attracting negative
thoughts. If the channel is changed, you start attracting positive thoughts.
So, you are not really responsible for that as you tend to blame your self.
As I told you, you are like a robot, a computer. You are being programmed
continuously from the thought sphere or the earth’s magnetic field. So, if
you do certain kind of
dhyanas, we can realign the chakras, whereby it will automatically turn into
One terrible thing is the media of today. In the newspaper and magazines
they must also publish positive things. But everywhere they talk only about
accidents, murder, looting, cheating. The whole thing is negative. As these
inputs are going into you, the chakras acquire a specific kind of alignment.
Thereafter you start turning only to the negative things in the thought
sphere. That is the problem with our society. You must talk more positive
things. You must have newspapers
where there will be separate pages only for positive things or TV channels
where they will be allotted only for positive news. If that goes on, the
chakras will be realigned. That’s why you must speak positively to children
and not allow them to see all kinds of TV programmes, newspapers and
magazines. Because that is a part of the problem.
Question: Negative thoughts are one of the problems we are facing. How to
come out of it and how to come out of the sensual pleasures seeking of the
mind and how to focus the mind?
Answer: You should have noticed very often that you have no control
over your thoughts. Thoughts seem to be simply flowing into you and taking
control of you. You’ll sometimes find strange thoughts, which you do not
like, flowing into you. If you would investigate, you will see that they are
actually not your thoughts. That’s why, one of the fundamental teachings of
the Dharma is “Your thoughts are not your thoughts”. Just as you breathe in
and breathe out air,
from the atmosphere, similarly we breathe in thoughts and breathe out
thoughts from what could be called the “thoughts sphere”. So, we generally
take in thoughts through the Ajneya chakra and then we also broadcast
thoughts from the back of your head from a spot called the bindu. So we
receive as well as we transmit and the thoughts sphere is thousands of years
old where all the memories of all human beings who have lived for the past
several thousands of years, not
millions of years but probably eleven to twelve thousand years. The thoughts
are stored there and these thoughts flow through you. They are not exactly
your thoughts, they are the thoughts of the whole of humanity that has lived
from the past 11 or 12 thousand years and they continue to flow through you
and that influences you.
Now what kind of thoughts flow through you depends upon how your chakras are
aligned. Like if you have a TV set, if you change the channel, you get a
different programme. So, these chakras when aligned in a particular way they
form an antenna, which sucks in these thought from the thought sphere.
Now, if it is wrongly tuned in, you are likely to get a lot of negative
thoughts. If it is properly tuned you might get positive thoughts or you
could get a mixture of both. Vastu for example, the house in which you live
will directly affect your chakras from which you start receiving certain
kinds of thoughts. So, in case you are getting too many negative thoughts,
you might have to check the vastu of your house and then you have to do
chakra dhyan and get them properly aligned. Then, from the thought sphere
you will get more positive thoughts and if more positive thoughts come in,
the mind will become more focussed. Negative thoughts have a tendency of
keeping the mind unfocussed. Positive thoughts help the mind to be focussed
and to get these positive thoughts you must have your chakras properly
aligned. So, one of the things we will be doing for you in the yajnas is to
help you to have your chakras aligned. Properly.
