“You constantly keep performing, for, execution is far greater than being unproductive. If you remain idle, even the maintenance of the body cannot be accomplished!”
I can say this is one of the most intimate instruction. See unless you give the freedom for the Master to look in completely and give you the straight instruction, he will not enter into this depth. See it is almost like entering into the personal life of Arjuna. Krishna is directly entering into the bedroom of Arjuna and correcting it.
sarira-yatrapi ca te na prasiddhyed akarmanah || ” – from Bhagavad Gita verse 3.8
I can tell you when the action is constantly performed, your frequency raises to next level. Of course that is not ultimate from there also you go to the next level action without a pattern.
See there are 3 frequencies in human beings.
First lowest frequency is no actions, only patterns,
second is actions and patterns,
third and highest frequency is actions without mental patterns.
Here Bhagavan (Lord) Sri Krishna is saying first get out the of the lowest frequency. First get into actions. Then you can grow into the level of actions without patterns. Constantly keep performing for execution is far greater than being unproductive, being idle. If you remain idle, even the maintenance of the body cannot be accomplished!
In Zen traditions I have seen monks becoming enlightened., Sadhus becoming enlightened just by the work, work, work. I tell you work makes you humble, it makes you courteous.
Why do you think I constantly ask people to work? I have seen people who work, work, work, they radiate so much of humbleness, courtesy, love. But those who never work their very body-language radiates arrogance. The way they walk, look at people, handle people, the way they feel people. And the way you feel people in your presence, the way people feel in your presence also matters.
Go on and on and on Performing like Bana Lingas
I have seen how these Bana Lingams and Shalagramas are created. The stones we worship as Shiva and Vishnu’s Murthis (deities). Actually ordinary stones only fall into the river and hit each other and they nicely fall on the bank. Same way roll, drop yourself in the flood of karma – actions. Let you be a stone lost in the flood of action. You will see by rolling, rolling, you will be moulded as stone representing God. Not even a stone, you will be God and you will be worshipped.
The Contant Performance of Enlightened Masters
All the traditions which emphasizes on work, which works, produces more humble people, Enlightened Beings than the traditions which promotes eating, chewing beetle leaf and stretching your leg claiming yourself as a great Vedantis.
Just imagine a person like Adi Shankara just 32 years, no infrastructure. He did not have roads, cars, buses, internet, telephone. But he has done so much work of establishing 5 major organizations like Kanchi Mutt. It is not a joke! 32 years then, the amount of work he would have done understand. Amount of work he has done – unimaginable!
Work! I tell you, after Shankara Vedanta Sampradaya did not see workers. Very few like Vivekananda happened.
I tell you keep performing, keep performing, keep on performing! Create chaos by work.
Work so much that always there is chaos around you. Continuously work, you will see not only you become humble, you will be moulded, polished like Salagrama stone or Bana linga.
Bana Linga happens in Narmada river, Saligrama happens in Kantaki river. Both are powerful rivers. Go on performing, go on performing, go on performing! It is performing that makes you more and more, and more alive and raises your frequency to the next level whether you are in the field of medicine, or law or engineering or architecture or spiritual field or any field go on performing.
Every moment choose working, choose performing. You will see the power, the joy, the way you expand. The way you radiate. The way you live, the way you accomplish.
And if the non-performing laziness becomes pattern in you even maintenance of the body cannot be accomplished. You can’t maintain even your body.
Performing, performing, performing I can say that is life.
Bana Lingams – The lingams that are found at the sacred Narmada river at M.P, India. They are rare in that they are formed by the rough stones on the river bed. By constant flowing, and chiseling with each other into the Narmada river, they turn into beautiful, shining, polished Shiva Lingas, that are considered embodiment of divine, sacred. The analogy used by Paramahamsa Nithyananda to show how only through constant action, and work, by exposing all our negative patterns, by jumping into the river of life, we can get moulded and be transformed into the Divine.
Shaaligram Stone – Shaaligrama is the representation, a living deity of of Lord Vishnu. The sacred black colored stone found at the Gandaki river, a tributary of of the holiest river, Ganges (Ganga) at Himalayan ranges, Nepal.
Lingam or Linga – lit. meaning ‘mark’, ‘sign’, is the direct representation, the living deity of Lord Shiva. It denotes the cosmic pillar, symbolizing the infinite nature of Shiva. As per Lingam Purana the origin of the Lingam took place at Tiruvannamalai, where Lord Shiva manifested as the beginning-less and endless pillar (Stambha) as ‘Lingodbhava’, emerging from the Lingam – the cosmic fire pillar – proving His superiority, His infinity – the ultimate greatness of Enlightenment over the other two trinities, Lord Brahma, symbolizing intellect & knowledge, and Lord Vishnu, symbolizing devotion, surrender.
