Share Article

In his early morning daily discourse to his worldwide followers via live streaming, Paramahamsa Nithyananda revealed the powerful sacred secret and truth in the Bhagavad Gita verse 16 from Chapter 5. He said, just continuing to gain knowledge by reading is like continuing to read a menu card. Once you have basic principles explained to you, now your effort should be only in the line of destroying ignorance, not gaining knowledge.

If one has never trusted in their life that impossible is possible, then they die as depressed beings.

July 5th 2012, Inner Awakening Program- Day 4, India: His Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda said, “Just reading the Sanskrit verses and translations in the Bhagavad Gita is one of my entertainments. It is a not a philosophical book, it is a very powerful entertainment.

His Holiness Paramahamsa Nithyananda translated the verse 16 in the Bhagavad Gita Chapter 5 as: 'Whose ignorance is destroyed by the knowledge, their knowledge, like the rising sun, throws light on the supreme consciousness.'

He said, "you don’t need to gain knowledge. You don’t need to gain enlightenment. It is there like a sun shining within you. All you need to do is work on removing the ignorance. This one small understanding shifts the way you put your efforts. Many traditions have enormous amount of literatures and have the attitude of gaining more and more knowledge. They lost the enlightenment experience.

The attitude with which you start the journey will play a major role in the success of your journey. You need to read, not to gain knowledge, but to dispel the ignorance. You are the sun covered by clouds, cloud has to be dispersed and the sun will shine again. I will call only this as the right knowledge towards enlightenment.

Just reading the books and information is one of the worst addictions which can keep enlightenment experience away from you. It is worse than addiction to drugs and alcohol, because the whole world is against these substance addictions and at one point will help you get out of it. But the whole world supports reading books and gaining knowledge. Only an enlightened Master’s initiation can help you shift towards experiencing the truth.

Satsanga, being with the Truths, Master and Mission in a unclutched way ( Buddha, Dhamma & Sangha) is the ultimate way, to experience the truth.”

On the 4th day of the 21 Day Inner Awakening Retreat, Paramahamsa Nithyananda answered the questions of participants during the morning world wide discourse. In response to a question on why perfectly logical highly educated people drop their logic and follow Him, he said, “Blessed are those who have even seen in their lives, something beyond the bandwidth of their logic and senses. They are not dropping their logic, they are understanding and upgrading the bandwidth of their logic. Their ordinary logic is taking a quantum jump.

Spiritual seekers and disciples understand that extraordinary experiences cannot be explained by conditional logic, and the conditional logic does not have enough bandwidth to capture what is happening. Then the third eye which is beyond logic opens up.

If one has never trusted in their life that impossible is possible, then they die as depressed beings. Atheist is a person who is very clear that impossible is impossible. Theist is a person who believes possible is possible. Disciple is a person who has got a glimpse of the possibility of impossibility. Master is a person radiating impossibility in every possible way.

I am not a orator. I am only an authentic expresser.”
