One Reality


Narayana Guru 1854-1928 / Kerala India



One Reality becomes manifest

As many apparent forms;

Underlying the many apparent forms

There is one substance.

This enlightenment results in the melting away

Of all multiplicities without difference

In one pure Consciousness.

This insight is not reached by all;

So great is this mysterious secret of oneness!



Countless are the particles of dust

That constitute the earth;

And the earth that exists in and through the particles

Has no different being either.

Likewise, matter merges in the being of mind,

And mind in the material bodies.

The two thus become revealed to be

One in essence when contemplatively perceived.


- Verses from Atmopadesa Satakam, One Hundred Verses of Self Instruction, found in Narayana Guru, Complete Works - translated by Muni Narayana Prasad. [National Book Trust, India, 2006, 2009]

Swami Muni Narayana Prasad in the Mundaka Upanishad I.1.1:

Around a point could be drawn any number of circles, each outer circle larger than the inner ones. Infinity is the limit whereto such circles could be enlarged, reaching which the centre loses its centrality as the circle that has infinity for circumference can have any point within for its centre. That is to say, whilst the circle remains one, its centre could be as many as infinity. Virtually each one of us is one of those centres. I feel I am the centre of that infinite circle. You feel you are at the centre. Oneself is the centre of the universe for each of us, a feeling wrong in no way, but not right in any way. This feeling no way affects the oneness, boundlessness and indivisibility of the one circle, the one Consciousness, cit.”

For those of you who have become interested in Kashmir Shaivism and Swami Lakshmanjoo, there is a somewhat less expensive soft cover edition of his Bhagavad Gita now available.

* The Universal Shaiva Fellowship is excited to announce the soft back edition of Swami Lakshmanjoo's revelation of the full 18 chapters of the Bhagavad Gītā, entitled Bhagavad Gītā, in the Light of Kashmir Shaivism. This complete Bhagavad Gītā set is being released as a audio study set, which includes one DVD containing MP3 audio files along with an extensively annotated transcript, in the form of a soft cover 705 page book.

This treasure was one of the last works Swami Lakshmanjoo, the distinguished fully realized philosopher/saint of Kashmir Shaivism, did while living in this world. It was given to John and Denise Hughes when they met with him in Nepal in 1990. When he began this translation he told them it was his new revelation revealing the supreme secrets hidden in the Kashmiri recension of the Bhagavad Gītā. This new revelation was a result of the state of Universal God Consciousness that Swamiji was now experiencing.

This translation is based on Abhinavagupta’s own commentary on the Gītā, the Gītārthasagraha, "The Essence of the Gīta". Here Swami Lakshmanjoo reveals the unique and liberating teaching of Kashmir Shaivism which proclaims:

"Freedom from all our miseries, as Abhinavagupta boldly declares, can neither be obtained through the renunciation of the world, nor by hatred of this world, but by experiencing the presence of God everywhere."

Immeasurable Heaven: Laniakea

An awesome, magnificent and humbling look into God's superb supernal woven universe. The sheer relative scope of potential worlds makes the idea that we are alone in the universe ever more absurd!

"The entire universe can be seen as an intricate network of galaxies — a cosmic web." Tat Twam Asi!

Published on Sep 3, 2014

Superclusters – regions of space that are densely packed with galaxies – are the biggest structures in the Universe. But scientists have struggled to define exactly where one supercluster ends and another begins. Now, a team based in Hawaii has come up with a new technique that maps the Universe according to the flow of galaxies across space. Redrawing the boundaries of the cosmic map, they redefine our home supercluster and name it Laniakea, which means ‘immeasurable heaven’ in Hawaiian.

An Inner Transparence...


From the Aitareya Upanishad

- translation & commentary by Swami Muni Narayana Prasad

Shruta in Sanskrit means that which is learnt, not skill in any particular subject - but rather the awareness of the whole of life, the meaning of life. Nor is it meant for demonstrating in an examination, simply to be forgotten thereafter, or to be easily quoted when occasions arise to display one's own knowledge-ability.


It is simply an inner transparence that makes each moment we live meaningful and purposeful, where knowledge does not leave our living. Giving emphasis to the inseparability of this Wisdom from life is stated: "By my learning indeed I manage my days and nights."


By the bringing together of wisdom and living, life assumes an order of its own, an order perfectly in tune with the total reality, of which individuals and their knowledge, all are merely momentary manifestations.


The functional system of the total Reality is called Ritam in Sanskrit. The words uttered by those who make their existence fully in tune with Ritam will also be likewise. Those words, imbued as they are with the spirit of the vision of the one reality (Satyam, which means Truth in the eternal metaphysical sense) that underlies Ritam become beacons…

Enlightenment in the vast universe

Some of you may be wondering why I continue to pursue the idea that planet Earth is one of a multitude of colonies filled with various life forms throughout the universe. You may quite correctly say that after all, we are here for our enlightenment. We are here to unveil our eternal oneness with the all-pervading One. Enlightenment is to be achieved through the Wisdom-Knowledge found in the Bhagavad-Gita, the Upanishads, and the Shiva Sutras — all of which are based in the Rig Veda. This is absolutely true. Seek your own enlightenment first!

So why should we be concerned with the off-planet beings who are our progenitors, the 'Pitaram' in Sanskrit. The great Kashmir Shaivite saint Swami Lakshmanjoo, who I revere, has said, “This whole universe has come into existence just to carry you to God-Consciousness.” Therefore, why should our consciousness be confined on and limited to planet Earth? I believe that the fact that our true origins have been kept secret is a very big piece of our bondage.

The heinously manipulative lies about our origins serve only tyrants and priestcraft in this Kali Yuga, a cycle of time in which people prefer false ideas to truth. In my lifetime a vast pernicious web of deceit has increasingly covered our planet, and is the source of very destructive, suffocating, life-crippling energies. Some are now calling this the ‘Breakaway Civilization’ — and you can learn more about this from Catherine Austin Fitts and Richard Dolan. I believe that our enlightenment includes expanding our consciousness beyond earth, beyond the heliosphere, out into the farthest reaches of space into the billions of galaxies we came from, and all of which were created to bring us to God-Consciousness.

Isn’t it time that we emerge from our miasma of amnesia? The enlightened don’t require a ship to fly through the universe. The Truth does set us Free!

A quote March 23, 1993 from Ben Rich, who was head of Lockheed Martin Skunk Works: “If you can imagine it, Lockheed Skunk Works has done it. …We already have the means to travel among the stars. But these technologies are locked up by black projects and it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity. Anything you can imagine, we already know how to do.”

Ben Rich in reply to a question concerning the equations that would allow travel faster than the speed of light: “Let me ask you: How does ESP work…All points in time and space are connected! That’s how it works!”

The Ribhus 'control the space-crafts'...

A few days ago a new translation of the Rig Veda arrived from Exotic India Arts in Delhi. I am always excited to have any new translation because no matter what, I can learn from it. This one was published in 2008. One of the translators ‘brings to bear a scientific temper on his spiritual writings’ and what follows is their translation of Rig Veda IV.36.1, which I happened to be working on:

“The glorious three-wheeled vehicle without horse and without reins rolls around the firmament. Great has been the proclamation of your divine power, O men of experience and wisdom, that you control the roadways and space-crafts.”

While I have only just begun to explore the new translation, I hope and suspect that this is the beginning of a new wave of translations that will include space technology — and therefore will provide evidence that our progenitors indeed came from the sky. The evidence in the old Sanskrit can no longer be ignored.

This verse is about the Ribhus, who I feel were the master engineers of plasma physics, space, climate modification (necessary to colonize any planet), geneticists, botanists and masters of horticulture who evolved seeds that would grow in our earth. My translation and more on the Ribhus soon.

Colony Earth — one of thousands...

"Now that we are on the threshold of moving out into deep space, all the old views of our uniqueness are changing... The same orderly process that precipitated our planet from the essence of space has no doubt been repeated countless numbers of times to produce systems very similar to ours, which in turn have been populated by beings much the same as ourselves. Hopefully, they exercise more restraint and wisdom than we do in their dealings with each other, and take more care of their immediate environment."

— Bruce Cathie, New Zealand; 'The Bridge To Infinity' /1997


"Johor: This is a catastrophic universe, always; and subject to sudden reversal, upheavals, changes, cataclysms, with joy never anything but the song of substance under pressure forced into new forms and shapes. ...I am a small member of the Workforce, and as such do as I must. That is not to say I do not have the right, as we all have, to say, Enough! Invisible, unwritten rules forbid. What these rules amount to, I would say, is Love."

— Doris Lessing, 'Canopus in Argos' /1979


Earth's current science has now seen over 300 billion galaxies in the universe. Can there be anyone who still believes in the absurd fantasy that we are alone in the universe? Millions of people, myself included, have seen a multitude of flying objects in the skies day & night that move in observable ways far beyond our own technology. The only reason our governments are hiding this is their fear of losing control over us. Confusion is control!

The fact that there are countless other life forms in the universe does not imply that there is no God. If anything the stunning depth of multiplicity and beauty 'out there' should affirm our faith and trust in the Creator.

Earth is only one of hundreds of colonies. Now is the time for this self-evident truth to be made known. Beyond all the fear mongering, we are indeed One.

—V. Susan Ferguson, New Zealand, 'Colony Earth and the Rig Veda' / 2013

“The only way to traverse the vast distances of space is to possess the means of manipulating or altering the very structure of space itself — altering the space-time geometric matrix, which to us provides the illusion of form and distance. The method of achieving this lies in the alteration of the frequencies controlling the matter-antimatter cycles that govern our awareness or perception of position in the space-time structure.”

Ahura Mazda is the Avestan name for a higher spirit of the Old Iranian religion. In the sacred text, Holy Zend Avesta Vendidad, Ahura Mazda warns of an impending Ice Age:

"Ahura Mazda warns Yima, the first king of men, of the approach of a dire winter, which is to destroy every living creature by covering the land with a thick sheet of ice, and to build a Vara, or an enclosure, to preserve the seeds of every kind of animal & plants. The meeting is said to have taken place in the Airyana Vaejo, or the paradise of the Iranians."

At least 100 million planets capable of evolving ecosystems

Assessing the Possibility of Biological Complexity on Other Worlds, with an Estimate of the Occurrence of Complex Life in the Milky Way Galaxy

Louis N. Irwin, Abel Méndez, Alberto G. Fairén, Dirk Schulze-Makuch
Challenges | Free Full-Text |


...calculations are consistent with the widely-held assumption that the majority of exoplanets have a lower probability of hosting complex life than Europa, even a very low percentage of an extremely large number is high, and it is now recognized that the number of exoplanets is vast.

 If we assume the existence of 10–100 billion exoplanets in the MilkyWay Galaxy, with 1% of them capable of evolving ecosystems as complex as those that might have existed at some point on Europa, that computes to the possibility of at least 100 million planets that may have seen the evolution of some biological complexity in our galaxy.

 Thus, this report constitutes the first quantitative argument that complex forms of life, while rare in frequency, are likely to be large in absolute number in our galaxy alone, and therefore throughout the universe.


Astronomers Find a New Type of Planet: The "Mega-Earth"

Monday, June 2, 2014 - 11:40am

 Cambridge, MA -

Astronomers announced today that they have discovered a new type of planet - a rocky world weighing 17 times as much as Earth. Theorists believed such a world couldn't form because anything so hefty would grab hydrogen gas as it grew and become a Jupiter-like gas giant. This planet, though, is all solids and much bigger than previously discovered "super-Earths," making it a "mega-Earth."

 "We were very surprised when we realized what we had found," says astronomer Xavier Dumusque of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA), who led the data analysis and made the discovery.

 "This is the Godzilla of Earths!" adds CfA researcher Dimitar Sasselov, director of the Harvard Origins of Life Initiative. "But unlike the movie monster, Kepler-10c has positive implications for life."

From anger [krodha] arises delusion confusion [sammohas],

from delusion arises memory loss  — our remembered wisdom [smriti], wandering away,

from the loss of the memory [that we are the One], our intelligence [buddhi] is destroyed,  and thus lost is our ability to discern and discriminate [between the eternal Real and the merely temporal],

from the destruction of our discriminating wisdom intellect [buddhi], we are lost and perish [in the delusion of five-sense differentiated perception].

Universes Float Like Bubbles in an Ocean…


 Maya, the divine power of the Lord, reflected by him externally appears … The Lord, covering Himself with it, conceals his nature of absolute purity and divinity.


… He sees everything through a viewpoint of diversity and forgets the divinity of His I-consciousness.


Besides, Maya-tattva serves as the inanimate objective substance out of which all other insentient elements evolve.


It is thus the substantive cause of numerous universes floating in it like bubbles in an ocean.


Excerpt from:

Essence of the Exact Reality or

PARAMARTHASARA of Abhinavagupta

With English translation & notes by Dr. B.N. Pandit

The Sanskrit word Kali, which denotes the fourth cycle of time, the Kali Yuga, has no connection with the goddess Kali [kAlI]. These two words are 'spelled' meaning written quite differently in the Devanagari and therefore should not be confused. The Kali Yuga refers to the apocalyptic demon Kali implying discord, strife, quarrel, and contention.

Swami Lakshmanjoo (from 1978) on Liberation from Prakriti’s [the Matrix] mischief:

“If you become slave of Prakriti, you are gone. When you follow these, follow the movements of these five sense organs, i.e., five senses of cognition and five senses of action, along with the touch of these three gunas, you are just sheep, you are just carried by Prakriti. And this is that individual being who is governed by Prakriti.

"He creates this, he creates this universe. Because everybody has his own universe in his mind; you have your own world, you have your own world, you have your own world. And that world you have created by combination of these…by following your nature.

"When you command Prakriti, then you don’t create your world. Once you have not created your world, you are free, you have no rebirth. You won’t come…you won’t be entangled in repeated births and deaths.”

“I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.”

Cyclical Empire Collapse

An insightful analysis of the collapse of complex societies throughout history is found in the now classic research of Joseph A. Tainter, published in 1988 by Cambridge University Press. To understand the mechanics of collapses, their causes and future perils, Tainter looks at a handful of previous civilizations that have collapsed such as the Western Chou Empire, Mesopotamia, the Egyptian Old Kingdom, the Hittite Empire, and the Western Roman Empire.

Although written in 1988, Tainter provides many valuable insights into the realities and implications of the now current world debt crisis. Nations vulnerable to collapse today face the event of absorption by more powerful states, the debilitating economic support by a financing agency adequate to the task, and heavy taxation of the populace regardless of the inevitable destructive consequences.

The collapse of complex societies recurs throughout human history. “Collapse is fundamentally a sudden, pronounced loss of an established level of socio-political complexity.” As complexity disintegrates the consequences are smaller simpler less stratified societies, less trade and economic activity, cultural dark-age decline, and decreasing population levels.

“The Fall of the Roman Empire, A New History of Rome and the Barbarians” by Peter Heather also gives us many comparisons with our current predicament. Heather is a wonderfully engaging writer. His emphasis is on the never-dull economics behind the fall, the over stretched unsustainable financing and feeding of large armies, and the corrupt bureaucrats, who for their own personal gain, grabbed as much as their power and greed would allow to squeeze the last drops of wealth out the dying empire.

There are many comparisons to be drawn with today’s global financial corruption and inevitable implosion. We need to be pragmatic and aware of the realities we now face. Ignorance is not Wisdom. In the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna did not urge Arjuna to stick his head in the sand! Ignorance of our times is not useful or in alignment with a higher consciousness. Understanding the practical aspects of change, economic and other, is crucial. Knowledge is power and the truth does set you free.

Inanna Hyper-Luminal

by V.S. Ferguson, 1996

"The clans of the Dragon and Snake have always known that there is no deep reality, and thus no reason to cling to temporary illusions. The world we see around us appears real enough, but its forms float upon another world, which we dragons call the invisible or unreal world.

"The invisible world comprises the potential for infinite varieties of existence. An illimitable number of unrealized tendencies interact with the consciousness of the watcher observing it. The invisible world is the underlying matrix and source of all probabilities in the visible world.

"The watcher creates a reality by fusing his or her consciousness with that reality through focus, and thus fueling it. There is no separation between the watcher and its reality; they are one and the same. As a watcher shifts focus from one part of the invisible matrix world to another, realities appear as multi-layered films, each layer reflecting the unique consciousness of the watcher who observes it.

"Therefore, there are as many versions of a perceived reality as there are levels of consciousness."        [Chapter XII, The Visit, page 203]

All the wisdom in the Sanskrit texts is said to originate from the Rig Veda and yet...

"...Veda has no mention of the idea of 'hell' or naraka mentioned in the Puranas. Yama is the ordainer and king of the pitriloka [the world of the ancestors]. Rig Veda mentions clearly the concept of rebirth or metempsychosis.

"Many popular beliefs on death are not found in the Veda. ...Veda, in particular, does not mention the belief that a person is born on earth because of the effects of his works done in earlier births, the so-called prArabdha karma."

 Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj / 1897-1981

“I am” itself is God, the seeking itself is God. In seeking you discover that you are neither the body nor the mind, and the love of the self in you is for the self in all. The two are one. The consciousness in you and the consciousness in me, apparently two, really one, seek unity and that is love.

What do you love now? The “I am”. Give your heart and mind to it, think of nothing else. This when effortless and natural, is the highest state. In it love itself is the lover and the beloved.

In Memory of Suchitra Sen (1931-2014)

Macintosh HD:Users:akshara:Desktop:Suchitra_Sen_as_Paro_in_Bimpal_Roy's,_Devdas_(1955).jpg

One of the most beautiful women to have ever graced this earth has just passed away in Kolkata at the age of 82. Suchitra Sen was the embodiment of intelligence and grace, a living Lakshmi. Her beauty was classic, serene and timeless. A follower of the Ramakrishna Mission Order, after retiring from film and acting, she spent her life in seclusion, meditation and prayer.

As all India mourns the loss of this great woman, who inspired generations with her talent and beauty, I offer my simple prayer for her. She touched my heart and soul, as she did so many. Om Shanti Om.

:muni narayana prasad.jpg

Swami Muni Narayana Prasad (December 9, 1938 -)

While comparing commentaries on the final chapter XVIII of the Bhagavad Gita, I have been reading Swami Muni Narayana Prasad's various translations. The more I read him, the more convinced I become of his deeply profound understanding of the meaning of the Bhagavad Gita and the Upanishads. Not only is Swami Muni Narayana Prasad an enlightened being, with a gentle humility that shines from his intelligent eyes, but he also has the gift of putting these very subtle metaphysical ideas into English in a way that communicates their essence directly into the heart and mind.

I would say that I have not yet come across better translations and commentaries of the various Upanishads. Thus I am strongly happily recommending his many translations to you. I am so impressed with his work that I have undertaken a word-by-word study and rendering of his translation of the Mundaka Upanishad, which I find both brilliant and enlightening. He just gets it — and then gets it into me! And not only have I not found one glimmer of any false thought or feeling, the Oneness has gifted him with the magnificent and astonishing talent of translating these important source texts into English for all the world to read.

I can’t say enough good things about this very humble and amazing man. Swami Muni Narayana Prasad has offered humankind an invaluable treasure and source of Truth in this terrible moment of our current Kali Yuga, when it seems that we are indeed about to be consumed by the Matrix masquerading as the Digital-Military-Corporate complex.

The Truth does set you free!
