Pearls of Wisdom,Q&A during discourse Sensitivity with Sound

This clip (discourse titled "Sensitivity with Sound") contains Nithyananda's candid answers to questions put forth by devotees in St Louis during the Shiva Sutras discourse series in May 2007. In his characteristic no holds barred answers, Nithyananda sheds light on questions of seekers from the consciousness of an enlightened being.

True Meaning of Love

Nithyananda in this clip taken from the discourse titled "Love is Your Very Life" (Bhagavad Gita 12) says that after spiritual experience comes Bhakti and social service. It is not the other way. Only a person who had the experience of every being as part of the cosmic consciousness, only he can know and radiate love. Words and deeds of an Enlightened Master, however trivial those may seem, always do good to everyone. On the other hand words and deeds of an un-Enlightened person, however great those may be, bring misery. For example, a simple instruction such as "Watch your Breath" from Buddha helped thousands to experience the Consciousness, whereas the "Theory of Relativity" led to the invention of Atomic Bomb.

Virtuous Circle

Nithyananda in this clip taken from a discourse titled "Love is Your Very Life" (related to Bhagavad Gita Chpt 12) says that Bhakti and Jnana are one and the same. Expressing the gratitude happening because of the spiritual experience is Bhakti. Having the spiritual experience and rejoicing, and staying in the experience is Jnana. Usually people are caught in a vicious circle where fear leads to greed and the greed in turn leading to more and more fear. Vicious circle results in low energy. A Virtuous Circle happens when Bliss due to spiritual experience leads to expression of it as Gratitude/Service and the Gratitude/Service in turn leading to Bliss. The Virtuous Circle leads to high energy and higher and higher levels of consciousness. Dharma is Virtuous Circle.

Awakening of the Third Eye

There are several thousands of techniques to awaken the third eye. In this discourse taken from Shiva Sutras discourse titled, "Awareness Gates to God", Nithyananda beautifully describes the power of the third eye.
