The Childhood Home

The moment you step out of Swamiji’s house, this what you see.

Knowing about Swamiji’s childhood home makes you know more about the way that Swamiji lived as a child, the way that he grew. You enter into the secret life of Swamiji where no one else has been with him. You can see that down to the very core, he is committed to the tattvas that he lives and breathes: authenticity, integrity, responsibility and enriching. 

We begin with authenticity…

I tell you, authenticity is a strategy plan for your life.  If you are learning the quality of cunningness, it may be useful for a short time, a few days, a few years, or a few lives; but not for your whole life!  But authenticity, if you are learning and developing that quality, it is a strategy planning for lives after lives after lives!   I tell you, make Authenticity as the pattern in you, as the strategy planning in you, as the strategy planning truth in you.  It will be the greatest service you will be doing for lives after lives after lives.  

Authenticity is the right ingredient with which your inner personality can be built.  The ingredients, the material with which you build the building, that is (what is) going to decide the longevity and the strength of the building.  

Authenticity is a granite construction!

I have seen the house in which I was born and brought up.  It was 300 years old!  They were demolishing it when I was maybe 10 or 12 (years old) – to build a new house.  It took six months to demolish that house with all the available machinery of the modern world!  They were not able to demolish the house which was 300 years old!  

Understand the material and the strength of the construction!  Many places they used granite and teak-wood, and it is called  those days, “Madura Teak Granite”?  Each brick was like granite made out of lime, haritaki powder, egg shell.  

You can see your face in the wall!  It will be so shining!  The wall will be so shining you can see your face in the wall directly without mirror and comb your hair!  Still, in southern parts of Tamil Nadu area, in Chettinad, they have those types of houses.  To remove the floor, it took full one month for them!  Just to remove the floor!  To remove the roof, it took two months!  Every inch they have to break.  Even if you remove the pillars, roof was standing independently!  Just by the two last pillars, the whole roof was standing!  

The material with which you build the house decides the strength of the house.  Same way, the material with which you build your cognition decides the strength of your being!  Authenticity is the ultimate material with which you can build your cognition.  

Introduction to The Birth of The Avatar

arunachala and sun“An incarnation never incarnates. He never takes birth. The pure consciousness exists as it is but the body is created out of a collection of biomemories”

~Paramahamsa Nithyananda

Paramahamsa Nithyanada’s life is extraordinary in every single meaning of the word. Even before his birth, his life is nothing we can grasp simply. The dispositions of our mind and our language limit us from realizing him at once. That is why we must go so deeply into all the branches of the vast banyan tree that he is.

As we explored in the previous chapters, Meenakshi was a major component of Swamiji’s bio-memory. A bio-memory is, “your decision to respond to a certain situation in a certain way”.  Swamiji says, “So when I was deciding to play with the body just out of joy, the bio­memory search had started for the components and the contents with which this body needed to be created”. The muscle memory is all the physical activities you do during the day that gets engraved into you to the point where you don’t think twice about how you should wake up in the morning, get out bed, brush your teeth and so forth. Swamiji summarizes, “Muscle memory is the pattern of your actions. The bio-memory is the pattern of your decisions”.

With this understanding, we begin to learn the manifestation of Swamiji’s body. Now that we know about Meenakshi, we can understand her bio-memory in Swamiji.

We can now explore Swamiji’s muscle memory. In 1977, Swamiji’s parents went to the Venkateshwara temple in Tirupati as a young couple. As per custom, they received the Tirupati Laddu as prasadam to eat after their darshan. The moment his mother sank her teeth into the world famous sweet, the heart of her unborn fetus began to beat. Thus, Swamiji’s muscle memory is from Lord Venkateshwara himself. A few months later, Raja Shekar, as Swamiji was known during his childhood,  was born in January of 1978 a healthy baby, as big as a three year old in his home town of Thiruvanamalai, with Arunachala hill as a witness.
