महर्षि पतञ्जलिकृतं योगदर्शन…..!!!/ Maharshi Patanjalikrit Yogdarshan……!!!

महर्षि पतञ्जलिकृतं योगदर्शन – पूज्य स्वामी अड़गड़ानंदजी द्वारा श्रीमद्भगवद्गीता के भाष्य ‘यथार्थ गीता’ का विश्व जनमानस में समादर की भावना देखकर भक्तों और साधकों ने निवेदन किया कि पातञ्जल योगदर्शन पर भी पूज्यश्री कुछ कहने की कृपा करें क्योंकि योग स्वानुभूति है जिसे मात्र भौतिक स्तर पर समझा नहीं जा सकता | पूज्य – चरण एक महापुरुष हैं, योग के स्तर से स्वयं गुजरें हैं | भक्तों के आग्रह पर महाराजजी ने कृपा कर जो प्रवचन दिये, प्रस्तुत कृति उसी का संकलन है | योगदर्शन की इस टीका से, योग क्या है ? इतना तो समझ में आ सकता है किन्तु योग की स्थितियाँ साधना में प्रवृत होने के पश्चात् ही समझ में आती हैं | तप, स्वाध्याय, ईश्वर – प्रणिधान और ओम् के जप से आरम्भ हो जाती हैं जिससे अविधादि क्लेशों के क्षीण होने पर द्रष्टा आत्मा जागृत होकर कल्याणकारी दृश्य प्रसारित करने लगता है | उसी के आलोक में चलकर समझा जा सकता है कि महर्षि पतञ्जलिकृत योगसूत्रों का अभिप्राय क्या है ? योग प्रत्यक्ष दर्शन है, यह लिखने या कहने से नहीं आता | क्रियात्मक चलकर ही साधक समझ पाता है कि जो कुछ महर्षि ने लिखा है उसका वास्तविक आशय क्या है |

After the publication of Yatharth Geeta, which is a commentary on “Srimad Bhagavad Gita”, the devotees requested the revered Swami Ji to throw light on Patanjali’s Yog Darshan too because yog is related with self – realisation. It cannot be perceived on material grounds. The revered Maharaj Shree is a Mahapurush who has passed through all the stages of Yog. The present work is the collection of what Maharaj Shree delivered in his preaching. By going through this commentary one can understand what Yog is but the real perception of Yog is possible only after practical pursuit of Yogic – Sadhana. With Tap, Swadhyaya, Ishwar – Pranidhan and chanting of Om, the real Sadhana starts. By their practice, the Avidhya and Kleshas got removed and the self starts transmitting beneficial vistas. In their light alone the Yogic – maxims written by Maharishi Patanjali can be truly comprehended. Yog is direct perception, no oral or written words can explain it. Practical pursuits alone can make the comprehension of Yog – Darshan possible.

The BhagawadGeeta in its True Perspective…….!!!!!

It appears that there is no need of any further exposition of the
Geeta. Hundreds of commentaries, out of which more than fifty are in
Sanskrit, have been attempted so far. But, although there are scores of
interpretations, they have a common basis- the Geeta, which is only
one. Why then one may wonder, are there all these divergent opinions
and controversies when Yogeshwar Krishn’s message must of necessity
have been only one? The proclaimer verily speaks of the Truth that is only
one, but if there are ten listeners they construe his meaning in ten
different ways. Our grasp of what has been said is determined by the
extent to which we are under the domination of one of the three properties
of nature, namely, Sattwa (moral virtue and goodness), Rajas (passion
and moral blindness), and Tamas (ignorance and darkness). We cannot
comprehend beyond the limitations imposed by these properties. So it
is logical that there should be all these disputes about the import of the
Geeta-‘The Lord’s Song’.

Men fall prey to doubts, not only because many different views
are held on a given subject, but also because of the fact that the same
principle is often enunciated in different ways and styles at different
times. Quite a good many existing commentaries on the Geeta are
touched by the current of truth, and yet if one of them-even a just and
correct interpretation is placed among a thousand other interpretations
it is almost impossible to recognize it for what it is. Identification of
truth is an onerous task, for even falsehood wears the ‘brows’ of truth.
The many expositions of the Geeta all profess that they represent truth
even though they may not have any inkling of it. As against this, even
when quite a good many interpreters did succeed in coming by this
truth, for a number of reasons they were prevented from giving a public
utterance to it.

The much too common inability to get at the meaning of the Geeta
in its true perspective may be attributed to the fact that Krishn was a
yogi, an enlightened sage. Only another great and accomplished Soul-
man of knowledge and discernment-who has gradually attained to the
ultimate spiritual goal discoursed upon by Krishn can realize and reveal
the real intent of the Yogeshwar when he preached to his friend and
disciple Arjun. What is within one’s mind cannot be fully expressed by
mere words. While some of it is communicated by facial expression
and gestures, and even by what is named ‘eloquent’ silence, the rest
that is still unexpressed is something dynamic and seekers can know it
only through action and by actually traversing the path of quest. So
only another sage who has himself trodden the path and arrived at
Krishn’s sublime state may know what the message of the Geeta really
is. Rather than just reproducing lines from the scripture, he can know
and demonstrate its intent and significance, for Krishn’s insights and
perceptions are also his insights and perceptions. Since he is a seer
himself, he cannot only show the essence but also awaken it in others,
and even prompt and enable them to embark on the way that leads to it.

***Welcome New Year-2022″……..!!!!!

Sings Sri Krishn in Bhagavad Gita:
प्रह्लादश्चास्मि दैत्यानां कालः कलयतामहम्।
मृगाणां च मृगेन्द्रोऽहं वैनतेयश्च पक्षिणाम्॥
prahlādaścāsmi daityānām kālah kalayatāmaham
mrgānām ca mrgendro’ham vainateyaśca paksinā
“…कालः कलयतामहम्..”……..”kālah kalayatāmaham…”
...unit of time for reckoners...
Sri Krishn is time among those who are given to counting its units.
This reckoning is really not of numbers and of divisions of time.
Sri Krishn is rather the progressive lengthening of time that is devoted to the contemplation of God.
He is the time of incessant remembrance of God not only in the hours of wakefulness but also in sleep.
And the same time…..added from moments to moments……
Seconds to seconds…….minutes to minutes….hours to hours…
days to days…weeks to weeks….months to months……..takes the shape of a year.
This man made present year-2021 has to pass out very shortly after few counted hours.
It will generate a New Year-2022 just before finally passing out
hand over the relay flag for onward time race to coming New Year as usual
with certain experiences to us
depending upon individual earned merits and demerits.
Who is this time?
And how this can be made happy and prosperous for each of us
without consent of it’s original owner?
Though we may wish to each other on our own
but better if our wishes are submitted in lotus feet of God first
then to get shared with each other,
with prayer for getting granted happiness and prosperous moments
to entire mankind with joyful impulses
to spend through out the coming New Year-2022.
I pray to God to bless all of us, a very Happy and Prosperous coming New Year-2022.
Let us sing all together this prayer at these great moments :

Humble Wishes!!!

Be truthful……!!!!

“Be truthful” and that sets every thing dear blessed Souls. By being truthful,
you may be near and dear to only truth which is God.

God exactly knows what and how much one must know and how rest of HIS delusive maya has to be faced out?
Keep in mind that blinded by feelings associated with the operation of tamas, rajas and sattwa,
men fail to perceive the indestructible and the one reality that is God-quite beyond the properties of nature.

So He cannot be known if there is even the slightest trace of these properties.
So long as these properties envelop the worshipper’s mind, his journey is incomplete.
He has still to go along; he is still on the way.

God’s celestial maya, the power from which the empirical universe is evolved, is most difficult to comprehend,
but they who are always engaged in the worship of God navigate safely across it.
This maya is called divine.
It should never be forgotten that it is something that we have to vanquish and get across.

So beautifully sings Lord Krishn in Bhagavad Gita:

“The ignorant and unwise are the most despicable of men and doers of wickedness,
because deluded by maya and having demoniacal qualities they do not worship me.”

They who contemplate and adore God know this. And yet there are many others who do not worship.
Men with evil propensities whose discrimination has been ravished by maya,
the meanest amongst mankind who are immersed in lust and anger, do not worship God.

Start intoning God dear blessed Souls by any name you like consisting of two or two and half words maximum because this has to be synchronized with inhale and exhale breath at a later advanced stage and will certainly find by divine arrangement what exactly is needed.
Rest all is simply expansion of mind which traps you all the way.

And a big Yes…..”Encourage One Another”…..so that one may find the path…..this pathless path to get free from the shackles of birth and death at an earliest which is the root cause of entire grief.

Bow down in lotus feet of revered Gurudev for such teachings to me.

Agnim-ile purohitam

बाहर जगमग उजियारा,
अंतस में घनेरा अंधियारा
सनेह के तेल में, नेह की बाती से,
माटी की काया में,
अरे अब तो सब दियना जलाओ रे।।

अब पूर्ण और केवल पूर्ण समाधिस्थ ही होना है………!!!!!

अंतःकरण के कोने कोने में,
अनगिनत वृत्तियों के हस्ताक्षरों के बीच
कोई जाना पहचाना, आत्मस्थित फ़कीर प्रति पल
विक्षिप्तों सा कुछ गुनगुनाता है जिसके घायल शब्दों ने
अपना आधिपत्य कर रखा है मेरे एक एक श्वासों पर।

इस संदेश के गर्भ में पलते मर्म ने,
चीर दिया है सीना अब तक के शोधित संदर्भों का
जिनका अब न कोई अस्तित्व ही दिखता है
न ही कोई विश्वास शेष रहा अब पूर्व संचित विश्वासों पर।

“तेरी याद में जल कर देख लिया,
अब तेरी आग में जल कर देंखेंगे।”

तुम गुनगुनाओ मेरे फ़कीर, और गुनगुनाओ,
आओ मेरे संग, आ जाओ झूम झूम के गाओ।
मुझे भी अब तो गले लगाओ,
और अपनी अनगिनत स्नेहिल थपकियों से
शोधित कर दो मेरे उन बेसुरे सुरों को,
उत्पात मचा रखा है जिन्होंने जन्म जन्मान्तरों से
और मात्र मनमोहक यादों के झरोखों में उलझा कर
अब तक दूर रखा है मुझे उसकी आग की लपटों से
जिसमें जल जल कर ही, शेष बचे सर्व संकल्पों की
धधकती चिता की लपटों में झुलस झुलस कर,
    अब पूर्ण और केवल पूर्ण समाधिस्थ ही होना है। ©
