NIRALAMBA--WITHOUT SUPPORT


FORMLESS. THOUGHTLESS MIND ie ATHMA,
BRAHMAN IS NIRALAMBA, WHICH MEANS 
WITHOUT SUPPORT, NOT DEPENDENT.

THERE IS ALSO A UPANISHAD CALLED 
NIRALAMBA UPANISHAD WHICH APPEARS IN 
SHUKLA PAKSHA YAJUR VEDA. BUT SUBJECT 
THERE IS DIFFERENT,PLEASE NOTE.
















   
Parameshwara teaching Shanmuga


'Parameshwara teaching Shanmuga' postings are based on
'Jnana Sindhu' writings of great CHIDANANDA AVADHUTHA 
of very high spiritual level based on VEDANTHA
(UPANISHATHS). He had given the copy of the book to the 
parents of a future Avadhutha even before the baby is born, 
telling parents Goddess will take birth as their son & to give 
the book to the boy when he will be twelve year old who is 
destined to become an Avadhutha by name 
AJATHA NAGALINGA SWAMY at NAVALAGUNDHA in 
north Karnataka.

NIRALAMBA 

Shanmukha told Parameshwara -- 

Oh GOD of GODS ! You told PARABRAHMA is omnipresent
in this world & as all forms in this world ! Now please explain
in detail why we have to call it as NIRALAMBA -
ie, WITHOUT SUPPORT.

Parameshwara told Shanmuka--

Child ! If you want to experience your own kingdom of 
inner BLISS, get rid off worldly pleasures, vasanas
caused by MAYA ! Just as shape of liquid appears to
depend upon the shape of container in which it is filled
with, when we remove MANAS, BUDDHI, AHANKARA,
PANCHA TANMATRAS (Five inner motors of senses) 
total EIGHT CHARACTERISTICS, what remains is
state of NIRALAMBA - ie, without support. 


AS PER SANKHYA PHILOSOPHY

PANCHA TANMATRAS --

[1] GANDHA TANMATRA = perceived by Smell


[2] RASA TANMATRA = perceived by Taste

[3] RUPA TANMATRA = perceived by Sight(shape)


[4] SPARSHA TANMATRA =perceived by Touch 

[5] SABDA TANMATRA=perceived by Hearing(sound)


If you hear this it is as a result of your good deeds, good 
fate & you experience this in depth. By hearing this you 
will be like me, I will be like you.

From Maya created by formless Brahman many things 
happened. Firstly from A-kara, U-kara, MA-kara letters
(aksharas) - Brahma,Vishnu & Rudra were born giving rise to
creation(sristi), Maintenance(sthithi) & destruction(laya)
By egoistic tendency many reactionary forces join together 
leading to road of activity,getting bound, taking birth there & 
get destroyed there..Being born formlessly,getting destroyed,
dancing by the support of formlessness, doing childish 
pranks,talking,they carryout activity.That formlessness is 
Brahman only, thus deciding is Niralamba.

Talking, hearing, looking, pride of cast,bad deeds,eyes,teeth,
ear,face,complexion,relatives,clan,body,likes,birth,death,
lust,anger,eating,adventure,wife & children,thinking,fear,
peace,gold,soil,mind control,animal, penance, decision, doubt,
friends,news,suffering, bhakthi,strength,cleverness,dispassion,
person,parts of body,cloth,musical instrument, morality,
boldness, protection,politeness,future, senses,food,move for
relaxation,direction,natural law(thathva),sun,moon,three 
qualities,myself,yourself,doubtful business,behavior,talk,etc.
all kinds of items are formless Brahman - understanding
thus is NIRALAMBA. 

How bella(jaggery,brown sugar) by misnomer called as 
achhu(mould- as jaggery is prepared by pouring into moulds)
which is a false name,so also thanthu(thread,string,wire) by
misnomer called as 'pata' which also is a false name, even 
where real things exist false(mithya) names crop-up. These
imaginations are seen in yourself, so you are Brahman, as
everything being Brahman only,Maya is only imaginary. This 
world is like a water-mirage(seen in noon bright sunshine)
with hills,rivers & forests is unreal only. How a dear by seeing 
a water mirage thinks it is real & runs towards it, only to land 
into more trouble,those who believe this world as real are lost
in the forest of repeated birth-death cycle, experience sorrow
only.

Richness of money,assets, extreme poverty which you 
experience in dream,you believe as real, those who are 
dullards believing this world as real, fall into the trap of 
difficulties only.This world is only imaginary,Maya.s magic 
like Indrajal, for a moment it looks REAL(SATHYA) due to  
Maya in Brahman.Waves & foam that you see in water
is nothing but water only, same way in Brahman this world
is seen is Brahman only.If you see waves in water-mirage,
is it real ?same way this world seen by the imagination of
mind, how it can be real,as mind itself is thought to be in 
Brahman.Just as a piece of rope is imagined to be a snake
due to adhyasa,MAYA is in Brahman like a dream. Wood 
only is seen as beams,pillars same way Brahman only is 
seen in the form of world.In the self resplendent bright 
light of Brahman, Maya is seen & vanishes.

Imaginary Maya in that GREAT ONE divides in two ways 
as Vidya,Avidya & is seen as many universes.Like image
in a photograph,Maya is seen momentarily in Brahman,
however in-depth contemplation reveals that there is no 
such thing as Maya itself.Due to false imagination(bhranthi) 
of men word Maya has evolved.If you search for Maya, 
you cannot find it, so Maya which does not exist if you say 
it exists,only sinners can tell like that.

Just as the sentence 'A barren woman by birth is pregnent'
is false,same way is the meaning of the word 'MAYA'. 
A person who says he has seen horn of moon & another 
hearing it, are both dullest of the worst kind, same way those
who say MAYA is real are at the highest level of ignorance !
A person who tells he saw a house without pillars,walls in the 
sky & the person who says he has seen a man with eyes 
behind in the back are wild imaginations, same way 
substance called MAYA, is unrealistic like a dream.

What is seen in formless Brahman, is nothing else but 
Brahman only.Moon,sun,stars,Mahendra etc.,languages 
like Sanskrit,life forms,world,universe,flowers like lotus etc.,
working with the intention for gain,forms of God like Rama,
love,devathas of eight directions,demons,animals,birds,
insects,microbes,tasty rich food,birth,growth,giving,buying,
telling'I lost,am finished','I am saved' cooking,childhood,
youth,old age,getting bitten by scorpion & resulting pain,
God of death,his executives,death,sorrow,scared,climbing,
giving loan,son,wife,friends,hands,feet,other body parts,
chain which symbolizes marriage(mangala suthra),telling
let us see tomorrow or day after, action against cast 
dharma, untouchability, sins,fight,kindness,strength,weakness,
oblation to fore fathers,rituals followed based on planetary 
positions on certain days,yoga & related activity,week days,
waning period.rising period of moon(paksha),planetary 
position trouble in horoscope, body,all things are dreamlike.

My child ! It is important to know that action of telling you 
is false,you hearing is false,the pleasure you get out of that 
also is false,preaching you is false,ganas(those who serve
parameshwara) assembled here is false,everything is
saturated by Brahman only. Brahman is formless, without
parts or limbs & beyond explanation or description.All the
universe is formless only.By the resplendent light of 
Brahman, though this world is seen like a mirage,there is 
nothing else, other than Brahman.
  
'From knowledge(vidya) one became God' 'From ignorance
another became Jiva' though different names are evolved, 
on contemplation Athma is ONE only.God with infinite 
knowledge may be visible for a second,in that same period,
Jiva full of ignorance is seen crores of times.By knowledge
you learn, by ignorance you forget.From Brahman, who is 
knowledge form, ignorant form Jiva is born & dies.Brahman
decides & fixes the system, Jiva due to ignorance is the 
follower of the system.Both these two are created by 
one ATHMA, over many yugas(spreading thousands & 
thousands of years).When you are able to get rid off both
knowledge & ignorance,what remains is very pure ATHMA.
This GREAT LORD, 'creates' as Lord Brahma,maintains
as Lord Vishnu & destructs as Lord Rudra.

Due to MAYA. this way of thinking(bhava) as JIVA & ISHA
(lord) takes place.ATHMA is without any defect(nishkalanka).
Just as a seed contains imprint of tree,leaf,flower& fruit,
same way Jiva & Isha are in world,which are nothing but 
Athma. These names & forms are seen & conceived due to 
wrong thinking,ignorance.As you see waves, foam in sea, 
which is nothing else than water, same way when Brahman 
is seen in the form of this world,can we think of differentiation 
between them ?

Child ! You are ATHMA which is without support(niralamba).
really do believe in that.This explanation is based on SHRUTI
(vedantha) & not imagination. I swear for this in the name of
Parvathi,Ganapathi,ganas,Sanaka etc.including myself. All
things are nothing but formless Athma & all what is seen is
MAYA,please know that.Knowing this NIRALAMBA only,
Jeevanmukthas get position of ATHMA.

In this way Parameshwara explained NIRALAMBA for 
crossing ocean of life & to help the world, mother earth
became happy. Devathas,Rishis who were near by drowned
in the lake of Happiness. Auspiciousness to Mukthi, this
sadhana,for those who read this & hear. This knowledge
of high status should not be told to those who blame Guru,
acted against, disrespected Guru,This way when Shankara
explained,Shanmukha experienced state of Bliss !

either good or bad? 


A: Seeing & experiencing power of GOD, knowing Spiritual 

Knowledge has changed my life. Not being in bondage of

this world like dream, beyond worry & sorrow, always

Infinite - Knowledge - Bliss, are very very GOOD !


2) Q: What's the weirdest question you've ever been 

          asked? 

A: Hen or egg which came first ? 

From where you came to this world, where will you go from 

here ? 

How the SOUL(ATHMA) got this body made of five elements ? 

Is this world real or like a dream, or is it a projection of mind ? 

Have you seen GOD ? with form or without form ?


What is the purpose of this creation , with birth,death, 

creation and dissolution of planets,stars etc.?


3) Q: What is something you would like to see happen in 

your lifetime? 


A: Awareness of Soul(ATHMA) all the time ie, ATMANANDA

(BLISS OF SOUL), That is nothing but being with GOD all the 

time. GURU AS GOD guiding you all the time in every step, in 

every breath of life ! Is there anything greater than this to 

achieve or wish for !!

Finally to meet all requirements, for no more rebirths !!


4) Q: What do you value most in life? 


A: To know 'Who am I ?',Maya, Mind, creation of God & 'GOD'.

How to lead a life liberated from all bonds & attain Spiritual 

Bliss !To be liberated in this birth only, Shirdi SAI BABA has 

proved that a man can become GOD !! Follow him. Finally 

no desires,no mind & to abide in ATHMA which is 

Brahman only!!


5) Q: What's your favorite word? 


A: It is 'ATHMA' meaning 'SOUL'.'SELF' which is BRAHMAN

(formless GOD).Even though you see as if there are many 

souls, basically there is only one ATHMA,which has created 

this illusory universe. It is everywhere & everything which is 

infinite,eternal,self-luminous, bliss & knowledge --

OH MY GOD !!


6) Q: If your life flashed before you, what do you wish you 

would have done? 

A: If my life flashed before me,I am bound to live that way,

irrespective of my wish !.I cannot alter the life flashed before 

me, which is the result of my Karmas in my previous births.

I have no other option but to surrender to GOD & accept how 

he wants me to live. I can only follow Yoga of LIBERATION !!


7) Q: If you could change one thing about yourself, what 

would it be? 

A: My mind to merge in ATHMA-SOUL(GOD) all the time 

crossing MAYA ie, worldly desires, attachments and elimination 

of EGO ! This leads to fulfillment of this human birth & we 

see GOD in all & everything. This leads to liberation cutting 

down all shackles & bonds !!


8) Q: Where are you most ticklish?


A: In my mind, when it merges in SOUL & am full of 

DIVINE BLISS !


9) Q: Who was the best teacher you've ever had? 


A: GOD ALMIGHTY is the best teacher all the time.He is my 

Mother, guide & philosopher ! This world is his classroom,life 

is his teaching, if we fail, rebirth in the same class continues. 

Unless we become liberated beyond religion,status,ignorance,

narrow mindedness,ego he won't admit us to his abode

(ie, to merge) !


10) Q: What word do you like the sound of? 


A: When I am hungry, I like the sound of my Mother calling out 

"Dinner is ready" 

When I want to play, friends calling "LET US PLAY "
 
When I am in LOVE my heart throb's 

"Sweet nothings in my ear"
 
When I am a Mother my child's first call of 'AMMA' 

When I pray to GOD, greatest sound on earth ie, OM-KARA


11) Q: Are you superstitious? 


A: A person who is spiritual & aspiring liberation should never 

believe in it. After we surrender to GOD there is no room for 

horoscope, planets position, panchang, auspicious time.

We cannot alter what is bound to happen good or bad.We are

 ATHMA which is BRAHMAN & why we should bother about 

superstitions ?


12) Q: Who is your favorite actor? 


A: I don't give much importance to Movies, our life itself is 

like a movie,MAYA is special effects of GOD, hence I do not 

have any favorite actor. Instead I see GOD in all, may he be 

beggar or king of kings !!


13) Q: What's your favorite thing to read? 


A: Anything & everything about GOD told in vedantha & 

what previous saints like Shankaracharya, Ramana Maharshi, 

Shirdi Sai Baba & Ramakrishna Paramahamsa told about 

Spirituality & GOD. Their life story as to how they achieved 

those highest levels in spirituality. so that we can try to go in 

their foot steps.


14) Q: How would you define what you want out of life? 


A: All human beings want HAPPINESS out of life.Materialistic 
Happiness is not long lasting & is associated with problems,
worries.If we control our mind through meditation & prayer 
to GOD,we are able to abide in our SELF which is full of 
BLISS. BLISS achieved in this way is beyond sorrow forever.
