Condensed from talks by Guruji Shree Rishi Prabhakar

 

Two principles in life:

One is the knowledge of Silence to attain immortality. The other   is the knowledge of Activity to overcome death.

When you come to this point,  you don’t wonder about your life. Why am I doing this? What     is the purpose? Why should I look after my child? Why prop-agate  the human race?

 

To get freedom, you must realise that whatever you are doing is useless. Whether I do it or not,  it’s absolutely useless.

* Once you realise I am absolutely useless, there is nothing useful.

 

* Everything is useless then you don’t take any credit for action   or inaction.

* You don’t claim any rights whatsoever.

 

* You don’t have any duty when you have no  rights. You cease to have rights.

How can you give this up? By realising I am useless. I can make no contribution to the world. Most people can’t hold this    state long enough for liberation.

 

As long as you go on doing something useful, you are finish-ed. Then you do something useless like japa until you get bored. As long as I feel I am use-ful, ahamkar (ego) will be present.

When you feel what you do is useless, it means God’s blessings and liberation will follow.

Only when you are useless, can you sing and dance. You may  learn music and sing, as a useful commodity, but you will never sing.

 

Real singing, real music happens when nothing binds you.

People will tell you, that you are   doing something useful and you will get trapped. You can still do whatever you are doing, knowing its uselessness. Leave your jobs. Don’t work, pollution will  be reduced; the world will be a much better place.

What is the best thing to do   when you have nothing to do? What is the most useful thing?

Find a Guru. Whether a Guru comes to you or you go to a  Guru, I don’t know. When you attain the state of total useless-ness, that time you will find a Guru.

You have come here because   you have experienced how to  do useless things and you are happy. That’s why you have come here.

 

Actually you seek a Guru, that is why you have come. Automatically as you learn to do useless things, you are attracted to a Guru. I don’t know whether  YOU are doing it or it’s just happening.

 

Once you find a Guru, submit yourself, and submit 100%, not just whenever you are comfortable.

When I sit in front of you, I don’t know what I am going to speak.   A divine force comes through me. To surrender is very difficult; it requires lots of courage to be with people who have gone to  the next stage.

 

Once I realized, it’s useless then only I could go to a Guru. It    takes several years before total surrender begins to happen.

 

Now you live only up to 60 to    70 years but with this under-standing, you can live up to 120 years  or even 240 years.

 

A Guru is not there to hold you, or to bind you. A Guru is there to help you grow from within when you have come with  total surrender.
