Preface

Gurudev: You may ask some question! What do you want to listen to today? Hmm?

[A man in the audience says, "The Upanishad!"]

Gurudev : Upanished.. This is Upanished!

"Upanished" is sitting close – sitting close to the Master, not just physically, but also mentally… and we're all sitting very close, physically and mentally!

Now, what does "sitting close" or "mentally" sitting close to the Master mean?

It means understanding, right; understanding the words of the Master.

Some things cannot be fully expressed in words; only indication can be made. The deeper the subject, the lesser, words suffice. Whatever you can describe is gross! The subtler you go, the more difficult it becomes to express the more difficult, to describe. Do you see what I'm saying?

You can experience pain, but it's difficult to describe that plain totally. You can experience an emotion, but it's impossible to describe it totally, let alone make someone else experience it. So you experience love, but you cannot describe or express it. So you experience love, but you cannot describe or expess it, totally.this is why lovers are always sort of restless! They want to express, but they cannot find the words to express! They cannot find a single expression, capable of totally expressing what they feel! But, sitting close to the Master (that is Upanished), you catch many things… You catch the inexpressible.. You catch something that is indescribable.

Here, words are simply a vechile; a lot more flows in between the words –energy moves… Grace moves… joy moves and that transforms life. There is an innate tendency to unite.. because love is to unite.

So what does "love" mean?

It is the tendency to unite, to become one.

To become one with what? What is this tendency to unite?

In this entire creation, there is a tendency to become "one", to get back to "one"… because "two" is painful. Going, from two, to one, is the purpose of creation. Everything wants to merge into something… And what is this?

We call this love. The rishis call it "Yoga". So "yoga" means union, uniting… and uniting what? That is what we will see in this Yogasara Upanished…

Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times.
