Life is a series of experiences, how we relate to an experience makes it a “WOW” experience or a painful experience. Meditation is one of the tools which have been the main medium, which almost all spiritual masters have adopted to create a peaceful, loving and a blissful self which contributes to the overall joyous & fruitful approach towards life. This was the essence of the talk on Oh life relax please talk which was appreciated by 120 audience at Dallas, Texas.

Living with Confidence – Emotional Detox
Who you are speaks so loudly, I can’t hear what you are saying!! goes the saying. When people focus on the basic questions that they have in life, it is an expression of their true self. Each ones inner voice represents their true self. Confidence building is the cleansing of the inner voice and creating a positive approach to themselves. Every human being is a signature of the divine. Swamiji brought about a paradigm shift in their understanding of themselves to the 90 people who attended the Living with Confidence – Emotional Detox on 13th Aug, 2017.

Atma Vare Dristaviam- the ability to see is very rare. The student asked the master why is it the “c” comes after “B” in alphabets he said to see you have to learn to be. The pure being sees the world very differently compared an impure being. Dattatreya saw a flower and in him emerged an extraordinary understanding and the flower became his guru. When the student asked him how. He said the food for the flower is garbage but it converts the garbage into fragrance and spreads it everywhere. Every human being also receives criticism, problems etc. which is garbage. I will churn it in my understanding and like the flower spread happiness all around. The occurrence is ordinary but the way you see is extraordinary. This happens when mala impurity in our being is cleansed. Emotional Detox program held on 19th of August at Sri Venkateshwara Temple, Pittsburg Pennslyvania focused on this.

The word Shiva in Sanskrit means ‘Sham Mangalam Karoti Iti Shankara’ , one who creates auspiciousness is Lord Shiva. Swamiji picked up few of the sutras from Shiva sutras example “Jnanam Jagrataha” – The awakening of intelligence in one self that brings about a paradigm shift in ones approach to life. Intelligence is very different from knowledge; knowledge is information while intelligence brings about transformation. Shiva in another sutra says ‘Gnanam Bhandanam’- Knowledge is bondage that means let us not just be satisfied with information oriented knowledge but clarity oriented transformation. Clarity is power. The essence of this whole program by Swamiji focused on this clarity which opened their eyes towards their orthodox belief system to a large extent. This touched 100 people who attended the work shop on 20th August at Pittsburgh at SV temple.
The word CEO in management terms stands for Chief Executive officer. The real transformation happens when this changes to being a CEO – Chief Empowerment Officer. Empowering oneself apart from empowering people around is the quintessence of a successful CEO. The word management has to be understood rightly. Remove last letter T it becomes manage men remove the n it becomes ‘Manage Me’. Lord Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita says “Lift yourself by yourself, you are your friend you are your enemy. There are three types of people in this world- one makes things happen second one who waits for things to happen and third who is wondering what is happening. Where should the CEO belong and how to make it happen was the focus of the workshop held for top Indian CEO in Virginia in the month of August 2017.

Veda says “Mana eva Manushyanam Karanam Bandha Moksha yoho”– Mind is a cause for bondage and mind is a cause for freedom. Swamiji said mind is like a key you turn it one ways it locks the lock and turn it the other way it unlocks the lock. Both are in our hands. Unlock the free self through awareness, wakefulness and understanding of the self and one relatedness to nature.

Mind is a very powerful resource, one of the most powerful tools blessed by nature, one can use it, abuse it or misuse it. Every one of us is a powerful resource it required resourcefulness to either optimise or going one step further and maximising the resources available. Our rishi’s say mind is like a servant. More often we find we are not managing our mind. Mind has become our master. Arjuna asks lord Krishna when mind is a restless entity, how can I master this restless mind. Lord Krishna endorses Arjuna’s statement says “Abhyasena Tu Kouteya, Viaragyagyena Cha Grihyate” - it by constant practice and discipline one can definitely master the mind. It may appear difficult but not impossible. More often mind is in the worry mode. Swamiji said convert this into wisdom mode and see how life opens up in its entire enormity. How you look at problems changes our approach to live, No one can avoid problems. Swamiji said problems are inevitable but suffering is optional. A wise person overcomes suffering by clearly understanding this aphorism. The above was the gist, where how to handle stress was the essence of the interview and talk between Swamiji and the twilight movie star Ali Faulkner and Dr. Keerthy Sunder, Medical Director /Founder of Brain Tune, USA.
