TRANSCRIPT OF THE SKYPE DARSHAN
1. Sri Bhagavan, tomorrow we will be taking
our first deeksha directly from the
Srimurthi. What is the best way to relate to
you and Amma so that deeksha can flow
properly and awakening can happen?
It is not a question of just relating to
Amma and Bhagavan. We have often said that
Oneness is not a cult. Which means you could
invoke any master, any teacher, any God and
so and so. You could focus on any teaching
of your choice and you could follow any
ritual. Now, all that we have done is the
Srimurthis and the Padukas are something
special. We have done what is called an 'Avahanum'
which is a very ancient process by which you
move your consciousness into the Padukas and
the Srimurthi. Once that is done, however
many copies you make of them, they have the
same power. So you've got to use them.
Now Let us say you were to invoke the
teaching of the Lord Jesus Christ and let us
say the teaching is 'Loving thy neighbor as
thyself.' Then, You've got to chant that
teaching for 49 minutes. That becomes the
program. When the teaching enters the deeper
levels of your consciousness, it programs
your consciousness. That is followed by the
deeksha. So after chanting the teaching for
49 minutes, whatever teaching you choose,
then, you have to invoke Christ in the
Srimurthi, not AmmaBhagavan and relate to
Christ the way Christ expects you to relate
to him or the way you have been relating.
If you were to touch the Padukas, you must
know that you are touching the divine feet
of the Lord Jesus Christ. Not of AmmaBhgavan.
You touch the Srimurthi, you are touching
the lord Jesus Christ. If you're properly
focused, you would in fact see the Lord
Let us say the teaching you would choose is
to love oneself. If you were to say "I love
myself, I love myself" for 49 minutes, that
is AmmaBhavavan teaching in which case
you've got to invoke AmmaBhagavan.To invoke
AmmaBhagavan, the best way to invoke
AmmaBhagavan is either as your parents or as
your friends. That is the best way we
choose. That's the one in which we are very
comfortable. The mother father equation or
that of a friend.
Now let us say you were to invoke the
Buddha's teaching that all things are empty.
In which case you've got to invoke the
Buddha and you may have to invoke the Buddha
as a teacher and relate to him the way one
relates to a teacher. So it depends on you.
So you could choose any master, any God, any
We are of course doing the kind of rituals
that we are used to. It does not mean that
you have got to do those rituals. You have
the freedom to do them. But you could in
turn prepare your own rituals depending on
your culture and your background. We are
only asking that you observe these rituals
so that you get the essence out of them and
create ultimately your own rituals. So you
should not think just to be merely invoking
of AmmaBhagavan, no. You could invoke anyone
of your choice. This we have to be very,
very clear about. If you were to understand
that you must only invoke AmmaBhagavan and
only AmmaBhgavan's teachings, only these
rituals, then it becomes a cult. That is
why we have been very very ??? to get it
out. So we have been taking all possible
precautions and it is your responsibility so
see that does not become a cult.
2. Bhagavan, many charges fall off quickly
these days. But there are some that are very
deep and do not seem to release very easily.
They stay with me and cause a lot of hurt
no matter how deep I stay with them. Can
you please talk about what to do with
charges that don't seem to dissolve quickly
and seem stuck deeply???. How can I truly
First of all, you cannot be free of all
charges and one need not be free of all
charges to become awakened. But once you
become awakened, though the charges are
still there, they will not really affect
you. The awakened state takes care of that.
So I once again repeat. It is not possible
to be completely free of all your charges.
Next, you need not be free of all charges
to become awakened. And once you are
awakened, these charges though they are
still there, they are taken care of. Like
for example, your conditioning will not
leave you. Suppose you were to like apple
juice, you would continue to like apple
juice after your awakening. That would not
change. Your likes and dislikes do continue.
The only thing is you would see that there
is unconditional love and unconditional joy.
There is no differentiation. There, it is
the same for everybody. But when it comes to
likes and dislikes they continue to remain
there, but they do not trouble you any
3. My dearest Kalki Bhagavan. Thank you so
much for being here with Amma to give this
gift of awakening to all of us. All of us
want to see the divine in our life in a
major way. And we ask that you fully release
miracles and mystical experiences to us. We
want to be saturated by the divine and be
witness to major miracles as a natural way
of life. Please unleash miracles in all
forms across the west. Please bring the
divine as a living reality to all of us in
our hearts and to where we can physically
walk and talk with the divine. When can we
expect to see miracles like what is
happening in India right now?
Once a large number of people move into a
devotional mode, you will see, it will be
raining miracles. There will only be
miracles and miracles. You've got to show
up in a devotional mode for that.
4. Sri Bhagavan, what is the most important
thing we as deeksha givers can do on a daily
basis to stay connected with you and Amma
and to most powerfully receive your grace
and the benediction of awakening? We want to
be connected with this grace each and every
day, not just during these oneness
intensives and retreats.
Once you have gone through these retreats,
You could repeat this back home on a daily
basis, weekly basis, or a monthly basis. It
all depends on you. But the ideal thing is
to do it in the same place, the same time
and then you will find that the process will
begin to get deeper and deeper. When it
reaches a point where it does not reverse.
The process is thereafter continuous and for
all time. Remember, awakening or
enlightenment is not a destination. It is
only a journey, it's a process, it's a never
ending process. For the process that is
initiated here, it might stop, or it might
reverse. In which case you have to keep
doing this back home. As you keep doing it,
generally over a period of 3 months, what
happens is the process becomes permanent.
It's a non-stop, 24 hour, ever-present
process. That is when, we would actually
declare you awakened.
But now and then, the process might stop or
might reverse in which case you keep doing
the process back home. Keep doing it. For
some people it a matter of three weeks, it
becomes permanent and thereafter every
moment is new to you. Because it is a
process. Every day is new, every moment is
new. It never stops thereafter. The process
is the awakening. So once it's done today,
back home you could repeat it. But the only
thing is, it is best to do it same place
5. Sri Bhagavan, what is the role of
hands-on deeksha during this special time in
Oneness. How can we use this tool in the
most powerful way to help others to move
into states of oneness, awakening and God
realization? Do you recommend that we
continue to give the deeksha to one another?
What can you tell us about how we can best
give deeksha to others?
The hands-on deeksha is to prepare a person
for the Paduka Deeksha or the Srimurthi
Deeksha. So it has its place, it is
important. It is essential. So you must use
the hands-on deeksha to prepare the person
for the Paduka Deeksha and the Srimurthi
Deeksha. And in case somebody is stuck and
is not moving, then also you could use the
hands-on deeksha to get them moving.
The other thing is those whose hearts have
flowered through the process, their deekshas
are the best deekshas. So you must focus on
having the hearts open up. Once the heart
has flowered, the deekshas become
enormously powerful. They make the best
6. Sri Bhagavan, can you give us full
blessings for becoming fully awakened
tomorrow as we take the Srimurthi Deeksha.
We are seekers and we want this state and we
will ask that you give full blessings that
this state should be given to us. Thank you
so much Sri Bhagavan.
You will have all our blessings. Amma and I,
we love you so much. In fact, when I look at
you, I get a strong feeling that most of you
will be making it. I love you. See you in
