TALKS FROM MORNING SATSANG ON JULY 7, 2012 IN MADURAI, INDIA

In today's morning satsang, Paramahamsa Nithyananda (Swamiji) answers our questions. One devotee asks about the media's wild attention to Paramahamsa's clothes and jewelry. Why ae they so fascinated? Paramahamsa replies that the media apparently cannot understand the nature of renunciation. His clothes are gifts from devotees. He receives sarees from all over the world and wears them to please. He himself has renounced the clothes even before wearing. But media has attached itself to what he has given up! Paramahamsa comments that what they are truly attracted to is the grace of enlightenment, which radiates through any clothing and any form.

TRANSCRIPTIONS:-
Devotee : Beloved swamiji,

So much attention is being focused in some media about your clothes and your style of dressing and so on. As a devotee I know all this is just a casual play for you. But is there something you would like to say to the media, who are making such a fuss about it?

Anusha, Mumbai.

Swamiji : Anusha ...... I will have to sit up for this question. I will read the question once more.

Beloved Swamiji, so much attention is being focused in some media about your clothes and your style of dressing and so on. As a devotee I know that all this is just a casual play for you. But is there something you would like to say to the media, who are making such a fuss about it?

First few basic things. I assumed human body to relate with all of you, to relate with human beings and inspire all of you to enlightenment. So naturally this body itself is a one cloth I have put on me. I know you need to sit and see this body, when you listen. That is why I have created it little decent way, so that you can sit in a relaxed way and see.

Why this human body, the purpose of human body itself is for you to see and relate with me. Understand, this body itself is one dress I have put on me, one cloth I put on me. Then what is there so much about one more cloth that I put on this cloth. They think, there was one Suvarna tv, talking continuously about, I have spent one crore on my dress. He does not know I don't spend a single penny on my dress. I get paid, if I wear their dress.

My devotees bring and put the cloth to me, give the cloth and give some money also as an offering. I don't spend a single penny and I don't choose colour, I don't choose dress. Please understand, it is devotees all over the world, If they want me to wear some saree or some dhoti, they bring that and offer it to me. I say alright I will wear, the next day I wear it. That's all, nothing else. One more thing, as these guys are trying to display that I am attached and all this that. If I am attached to all those dress I would not have taken up the responsibility of Madurai Adheenam. It did not take for me even one second. Even one thought I did not have, I am not going to be using any of those clothes. I did not even bother, when I accepted this responsibility.

If I was too attached to those clothes and everything, I wouldn't have bothered to take up this responsibility . I tell you, long before I renounced that dress, but still these fellows are not able to renounce those dresses. I have given it up. Even while I was wearing, I was never attached to it. Even after I removed, they are attached to it. These people who are abusing me based on the clothes I am wearing , they need to know; this body itself is a one cloth I am wearing on myself .So anything put on that body does not affect me. It only affects you.

And I wanted all our devotees to know, all the dress and dressing method I use is purely from Vedic tradition. It is purely from Vedic tradition. I am not wearing jeans and running around or I am not wearing pant shirt and running around. In Hindu tradition, the colourful clothes and jewels are put on the deities so that you will have the darshan. So, many masters used to wear. Bhagawan Swami Narayan, he wore all colour clothings. He was a great sadhu, a Paramahamsa, Bhagawan himself , created a sansyas sampradaya. But he himself was wearing all coloured clothes.

So understand, this body itself is a cloth for me. Nothing affects me. And they are saying that, I have a designer, fashion stylist, make up artist. They don't understand I neither have a designer nor have a stylist or have a makeup artist, nothing . I have only one thing, body made out of pure consciousness. Anything you put on it, it radiates grace of enlightenment.

They are burning , they are saying , 'Oh, it's like a we give them some unique sweet. In south Indian villages they make something called kozhukattai. You give them unique sweets like this and they talk about every component of the sweet except the sugar'. They say, 'Oh, this is there in that sweet, that is there in that sweet, that is there in that sweet , but they forget to mention about the sugar'. Same way my photograph is like that sweet.
