What is the easiest way to get mukthi?
See there is no such thing as the
What could be difficult for one person
could be easy for another.
For some person a saint gives deeksha
might give mukthi
for someone, if you see your past lives
you may get mukthi
for someone, if you go into the womb you
may get mukthi
or some experience may get mukthi.
So we cannot say this is the way
So each one have a different path - not
the same path.
So we cannot say that this is the
If I say that this is the easiest path,
it could be easy for you
it could be very difficult for somebody.
That`s the difference of your past
lives, your karma what happened in the
And so many other factors.
But the beauty is to become a muktha
basically you must be a sanyasin.
You must not be a grasta.
You must not have problems.
You must not have desires.
Only then you can become a muktha.
But because 2012 is coming - it is a
very special year -
it is possible to become a muktha
even if you are a grasta.
even if you have problems, even if you
Already many people are becoming
mukthas around the world
and we'll be giving their information

How does practicing inner integrity help
in my life?
Your life is completely controlled by
your program. Your program comes from
past lives, moment of conception, what
happened in the womb, how your deliver
was, the first six hours and up to the
moment when your self was born. The
feeling of separateness. That is the
That only becomes your life:
how much money you're going to make,
what sickness you're going to get, what
events will happen in your life, whom
you are going to marry, how many
children, how was your married life
going to be. Everything is controlled by
Now if we must change your life we must
change this program. And there are many
ways in which we can change this
program. One is directly go into the
womb or into the past lives and change
it which also we can do which we do here
by taking some special process for you.
That`s one way. The other is if you
practice inner integrity. Automatically
these problems are set right. Inner
integrity can go and set right this
problems and life for you will change.
So that is why we go on emphasizing that
you must practice inner integrity. Inner
integrity not only solves your worldly
problems. It will also help you to
become enlightened or to become mukthas.

How to develop strong bond with
If you go on relating to us to say
AmmaBhagavan or God nothing is going to
You have to put us in relationship like
father and mother or brother and sister
or friend or whatever you relate gently
whatever is your best relationship. You
must cast us in that mold. Suppose you
cast us in the mold of your father and
mother then you must relate to
AmmaBhagavan the way you relate to your
mother and father. That is the way. You
must relate to us. And then you'll find
the bond is very very strong and that
even before you ask the grace will come.
So the problem is you are not putting us
in a mold: that is a brother or sister,
mother or father, aunt or uncle whatever
you want, friend - anything. And relate
to us the way you relate to that person
in your life. Do that and see you'll get
tremendous grace and tremendous
connection will come.

What are the fundamental differences
between enlightened people and saints?
We normally use the word sage for the
enlightened man and we use the word
saint for saints. Now by sage what we
mean is that he is an enlightened man
which means he has no sense of self. The
self is gone. There's no person there.
The only personality is coming up and
going. There's no person at all. And if
you ask him "are you there?" he cannot
say "I am there" nor can he say "I am
not there". Because the question itself
will not make any sense to him. "He" is
completely gone. And the speed at which
the senses coordinate are slower than
that of a saint. Now the saint on the
other hand he is still there. The
enlightened man or the sage does not
have that. And the saint is also in
connection with the Divine, with God and
he obeys the will of the Divine will and
is constantly listening to the Divine
will and functioning from there. The
saint on other hand, to him everything
that is happening is spontaneous. He
does not comment with the Divine will as
such. To him everything is the Divine
will. And he does not particularly
connect with the Divine. He is just
living every moment. So the basic
the sage has no self
the saint has got a self.
The sage is normally not in connection
with the Divine will.
And the saint is in connection with the
Divine will and the saint's behaviour is
predictable. He is conforming to
society. He may be auspicious in his
words in his behaviours.
The sage is unpredictable and he may or
may not be auspicious in his behaviour.
These are some of the differences
between a saint and a sage.

Bhagavan, your teaching always seems to
show me how I am not what you teach. How
will it awaken me to oneness?
You are not any of the things which I
teach. That is what I teach in the first
The teaching itself is very very simple.
All that the teaching says is: you
And the impossibility of change must
strike you like a ton of bricks.
But the whole problem with you is all
the while you've been trying to change.
You do not like the way you are and you
would like to be something else. That is
the problem. The teaching is remarkably
simple - all that it says is:
Something is going on there. Please look
at it. Do not condemn it. Do not judge
Do not give explanations. Do not say
"this right and wrong, good or bad, the
sacred and the profane."
Stop naming it. If you stop naming
what's going on as jealousy or as anger
a hatred as selfishness, you actually
begin to see. Now the problem is you are
imagining or you are thinking that if
you see, something is going to happen,
something very great is going to happen,
you are going to be awakened, you are
going to be enlightened and all that
kind of stuff.
Now what you got to realize is: that
seeing is the awakening, that seeing
is the enlightenment, that is the be all
the end all. There is nothing more at
all. The only problem with you is you
are not seeing. That's all. If you start
seeing there's no seer. He`s gone.
There's just the seeing. There's neither
the seer nor the seen. There's just the
seeing. And that is meditation. That is
enlightenment, that is awakening, that
is awareness. It`s everything.
So but unfortunately you made a mistake.
You begin to see - you don't stop there.
You're expecting something to happen..
So once you see, You want to undergo a
transformation. Nothing like that is
going to happen. The moment you start
seeing - that seeing is all that is
there. You start living. You experience
reality as it is. I could go on talking
more and more but then you would make
them all into concepts. So I am not
going to learn you the concepts. So I
stop there. You will discover it for
yourself. When we meditate what I want
to do is I am going to help you see.
That's all. Once you see - it's up to
you. You can writebooks on that. You can
write ten volumes on that. That's up to

How can I be sure that when I give
deeksha, it works?
You must watch the results. Let us say
somebody is coming to you with some
ailment. If the deeksha works if the
person is free of that disease or that
problem, then the deeksha is working.
Suppose somebody is having some
psychological pain. You'll give the
blessing and the pain is gone. May be
immediately or after a few days and that
is the proof that the deeksha is
working. And if somebody has got a
financial problem and you giving a
blessing and if that gives solve that`s
the proof it's working. So because you
want to use the blessing to help solve
peoples' problems. Any kind of problem
it could be. And you could also use in
on your pet also. If your pet is sick
you can give the blessing to your pet
also. It works. So you must go on trying
it and by the results you will know it's
all going fine.
If you do not get proper results then
you must check out on yourself. Whether
it's the ego that is working or whether
you are not connected properly with the
Divine. You could go on checking it out.
So please by the results you get, the
fruit of the deeksha is the indication
that the blessing is really working.
About the awakened state and how long it
might to get to after receiving Mukthi
Written by Michael Milner -
It is difficult to know how quickly
someone will go into a permanent
awakened state after receiving Mukthi
Deeksha. Many who shared their
experiences with me had immediate
results. Of course, we are not all the
same. It is important to understand that
the experience for some people during
the Mukthi Deeksha will be quite
electric & powerful with all manner of
visions & fireworks & kundalini
phenomena, while for others it could be
a very gentle & subtle unfolding over a
period of hours or days and may lack the
fireworks expected. The awakened state
is not necessarily something "flashy".
It is our natural state, characterized
by the experience of reality as it is,
free from the chatter & interference of
the mind, free from conflict &
resistance, a state of clarity & joy
without a sense of separation. This
process deepens as we become more aware
in the present moment and strengthen our
connection to the Divine. You can see
this gentle state reflected in the
experiences of several people I include
at the end of this letter.
One of the most life-changing deekshas I
ever received was so subtle that I
initially felt nothing and thought it
was a total failure. I was very
disappointed. Every other deeksha I had
experienced before this was tangibly
powerful and immediately plunged me into
an altered state. The next day after
receiving that deeksha it struck me like
a ton of bricks that, although unnoticed
by me and without any big flashes or
bangs, this seemingly impotent deeksha
had gently & permanently erased many
years of suffering. All that remained
inside of me was vast emptiness &
silence with bliss gently unfolding at
the center, something that has remained
with me permanently.
We should also understand that the word
"Bliss" is often misunderstood as
meaning only a peak state of
intoxication with extreme joy & ecstasy.
However a synonym for "Bliss" is simply
"mellowness" or "peaceful acceptance".
In the awakened state there is the
simple experience of "what is" without
conflict & resistance. This results in
peace, stillness & conservation of
energy that was previously being
consumed by the struggles of the mind.
This surplus of energy may bubble up
resulting in ecstasy and supreme joy or
it may simply result in a state of
peaceful calm & clarity in which the
intelligence & compassion of the heart
can shine forth. That is Bliss.
Since there are so many misconceptions
attached to "Enlightenment", we often
prefer to use the word "Awakened" to
describe this state. It is different
than visions of galaxies, brilliant
lights, intense electricity coursing
through the body, out of body
experiences, psychic perceptions,
visions of God and other expanded states
of consciousness which are the effects
of kundalini energy activating the
chakras (usually a temporary condition).
The awakened state on the other hand is
characterized by freedom from the
divisive chatter of the mind & from the
feeling of separation and the experience
of reality as it is and of oneself as
Read Sri Bhagavan's explanation of the
awakened state during the webcast at
The awakened state does not mean the
absence of thoughts & charges. In this
state the mind is still there even
though we are free from it's chatter and
domination. We may well experience an
ongoing stream of thoughts and charges.
We need not identify with them or name
them. The thoughts and charges are
experienced in awareness without
conflict or resistance. Awareness is
freedom (mukthi). To see is to be free.
If we resist them and seek to escape or
to "fix" them, they persist and we are
controlled by the unconscious charges.
If we are aware of the charges, if we
see them and simply experience them,
then we are free from conflict and the
charges & thoughts do not control us.
