During Mahashivaratri in 2015, Paramahamsa Nithyananda’s message was “You are your intention!” He narrated a beautiful story of him and Arunagiri Yogeshwara of his own experience realizing this statement.
Arunagiri Yogeshwara is an incarnation of Sadashiva himself who gave darshan to Paramahamsa Nithyananda when he was ten years old. Arunagiri Yogeshwara and the young Avatar had a beautiful guru-disciple relationship in those months. He is the only person that The Avatar calls as his guru. He was taught all the scriptures experientially, just by downloading into his inner space all of the text. The Navagrahas were actually summoned down to teach The Avatar their effects on every being.
Parahamsa Nithynanda narrated one lesson that he learned when Arunagiri Yogeshwara told him the message of Mahashivaratri 2016:
” Whatever intention you have, that you want to become, that is you, other than the psychological, physiological, neurological, experience, perception you go through is NOT you.
If you feel depressed about your body, and your mind, and about yourself or if you feel excited, elated about your body, your mind and about you, whether depression or excitement~ nothing is YOU. Nothing is YOU.
When Arunagiri Yogishwara shared these words with me, the way it entered into my system, they way it became part of my cognition, the way it became part of my reality — from that day never physiological, psychological, neurological, ups and downs can bind me in any way.
Listen to this truth and contemplate on it. I will support you to experience that as reality. I still remember he was sitting in Sukhasana, having ha
nd on my shoulder, and said uttered the exact words. He uttered in Tamil. I know for sure if you are a Tamilian you cannot understand this language, because it is classical Tamil.
I asked Him, “Then what is me?”
He put the next question, “What do you want to become?”
Small boy, I just stretched my chest in a wide way and put both my hands on the hip and said, “SADĀSHIVA”.
Whatever I heard from the temple lectures, satsangs, books, that is what I know as ultimate. So I put both my hands on the hip and said, looking into His both eyes and said, “SADĀSHIVA”;
The one more reason I put both my hands on my hip, I just want to give Him more space, that He will not take His hands off—His hands will rest comfortably on my shoulder. I was so much in love with Him. I will not miss a chance to have His touch.
He said – “YOU ARE THAT”.
It was so clear;.I can see it’s directly from His third eye to my third eye. There was no questions, doubts after that. He Himself explained – “Your intention is the only living mechanism in you. Your intention, what you want to be is only God in you. Your intention is the only living mechanism in you, other than your intention, everything else is matter in you, because of that matter cannot disturb your intention, which is you, you cannot be controlled, affected by the matters in you.
