Eternal peace is apostrophe’d by conflicts.
It’s a long journey.
Most interesting is that we are least interested in such attainment
though always cry for peace and the everlasting, ultimate bliss.
Probably a fake reflex action of our mind’s generation
without calculation of a reasoned base
reasonable spiritual base.
The only happiness is in God and eternal peace is there.
Certainly in that case,any initiation for such spiritual achievement has to start
from deep within the soul
resulting for total accomplishment
which is beyond the boundaries of human imagination.
In fact,the real base of the body is constituted by sanskar,
the merits-the influences and impressions-earned during a previous existence.
And sanskar rests upon the mind.
Perfect subjugation of the mind,
so that it can be changeless, firm, and constant,
the dissolution of the last sanskar, are all different aspects
the same process.
The disintegration of the last crust of this sanskar
marks the end of physical existence.
To bring about this dissolution we have to undertake
aradhana, worship and adoration, of the desired God.
Careful well planned deterrents & actions are must
one can never reach to the stage of eternal peace
such an ordained action.
Lord Krishn teaches in Chapter 18 of Bhagavad Gita:
“Propelling all living things
that bestride a body-which is but a contrivance-by his maya,
God abides in the hearts of all beings.’’
But if God lives in our hearts and is so close to us,
why are we ignorant of his presence?
This is so because the contraptions we call body are driven
by the power of maya, the universal ignorance or illusion
by virtue of which we consider the unreal universe as real
distinct from the Supreme Spirit.
So this physical mechanism is a grave impediment
and it takes us round endlessly through one birth after another.
Where, then, can we find shelter or refuge?
Lord Krishn concludes:
tameva śaraṇaṁ gaccha sarvabhāvena bhārata
tatprasādātparāṁ śāntiṁ sthānaṁ prāpsyasi śāśvatam
“Seek refuge with all your heart, O Bharat,
in that God
by whose grace
you will attain to repose and the everlasting, ultimate bliss.’’
Sri Krishn sings ……. “tatprasādātparāṁ śāntiṁ”……by whose grace you will attain to repose…….the desired eternal peace.
Hence, Eternal Peace is here and in order to reach to this state in mind,
one will have to seek refuge with all his/her heart in God.
So if we have to meditate, we should do it within the realm of the heart.
The heart is the true abode of God.
God is all-pervading,
he is realized only by meditation in the realm of heart.
This is the only way out to find the Eternal Peace.
