This week I happened to come across a few disturbing violent video clips on Facebook. Two videos were about men’s atrocious cruelty done to a street dog. The third video was about a man in rage lifting a young frightened child and slamming him onto his bed like a trash a few times and slapping his face. I was not able to watch the entire videos as it was too heart-wrenching an experience. One cognition hit my inner space – there is simply too much violence on this planet earth! My eyes became teary upon seeing the kind of atrocities done by human beings.
Looking back in my own life, I was not spared from aggression and violence in my family. Those hangovers from my childhood made me develop patterns of fear, self-doubt, anger and aggression whenever my survival was threatened. For many years, I suffered from the incompletions and these patterns which almost ruined my life. It was only after I met my Guru, a living incarnation, Paramahamsa Nithyananda (fondly known as Swamiji) that He taught me how to complete with the painful past and drop the root patterns of anger and aggression.
Here are some of the Cosmic gems revealed by Swamiji which have helped me to transform the pattern of violence.

I was born in a Taoist family where deities worshop was common but I never really developed any feeling connection with the family deities. During my Secondary school, I gave Christianity a go by opting for Bible study as a subject to understand the teaching. Nothing clicked with my being during that 1-year of Bible study, everything appeared as a vague faded memory, it seemed that my heart somehow knew more than my mind. It was only when I started my journey of seeking triggered by my passion for Science of Yoga that I was led to discover the amazingly open architecture of Hindusim. Yoga is rooted in Hinduism – the source is from Vedic tradition and culture. The path of Yoga is an independent intelligence which can lead the sincere seekers back to its Source. Not only I was able to find answers to all my burning questions coming from my intellectual mind, I was also able to experience the space of completion (poornatva) and the infinite possibilities as pure consciousness. I just know I am at HOME, the space of truth – the reality as it is.
Since time immemorial, the rishis (Hindu sages or saints) of Vedic tradition heard the truth from the Source and compiled these revelations in the sacred scriptures known as Upanishad. The first Shanti mantra (peace chant) in IsaVasya Upanishad describes the introduction of YOU to you:
