A very rich accumulation of sacred divine impulses…..!!!

Spiritual journey is certainly tough….!!!

My heart gets filled with immense love for such householders
who are really struggling to traverse on spiritual path
to lead a life of an honest seeker.

It’s a different issue how much success has been achieved by them
in attempting to lead the requirements of a metaphysical life
maintaining the norms of present situations they are already put in
but atleast deserve for earning the sacred and pious divine impulses
which encourage them to take refuge in really enlightened masters
which are rarely found around the globe.

Within this human body,
in its mind and heart-the innermost seats of thought and feeling-there have always dwelt
the two distinct, primordial tendencies-the divine and the devilish.
The sphere-the battlefield-is only one, the physical body,
but the impulses that wage constant war against each other on it are two.
While one of them tempts man to regard nature as real
and
thus effects his degradation to birth in lower forms,
the other convinces him of the reality and all-pervading domination of the Supreme Being
and
so provides access to him.

When the seeker takes refuge in a sage who has perceived the essence,
there is a gradual but steady ascent of virtuous impulses on the one hand while,
on the other, there is a decline and then the final destruction of evil impulses.
When there remains no malady and the mind is perfectly restrained,
even the restrained mind at last ceases to be
and
there is no longer any need of even the treasure of divinity.

This is the syllabus of the whole journey.
During this journey, what I have been experiencing that leading a normal householder life is almost
like to carry a heavy stone on back while living in ignorance
under umbrella of fake pleasures and getting crushed in birth and death cycles
knowingly or unknowingly for indefinite period.

And those who are leading honest metaphysical life
and
struggling for attainment of ultimate bliss have the burden of heavy stone on chest
while maintaining the strict spiritual disciplines with best possible purity of mind and senses
during walking the divine path though mange to reach to final destination at every cost
if the real spiritual journey has been initiated
under guidance of an accomplished and totally enlightened master.

But the householders who are unfortunately still trapped
somewhere in between the above two mentioned stages
and
struggling for Self Realization in guidance of accomplished Guru, have to carry
the burden of heavy stones on back as well chest both at a time
and
traverse the path with heavy heart in hands,
with the help of divine impulses earned through intense devotion, dedication and possible surrender.

Great struggle……really a great struggle.

It is the compassion of enlightened sages
and
divine grace which enable such householders
to win this difficult situation and finally to come out for final victory.

The spiritual journey is certainly tough but never complicated if not miscalculated or misinterpreted.

Teaches most revered Gurudev:

“Believe that adoration of the Supreme Spirit has commenced when,
even while one is leading the life of a householder,
there are signs of weariness and tears,
and sentiment so powerful that it chokes the throat.”
Manifold strands are entwined in love: of dharm, precept,
restraint, pious association, and sentiment.

The lifting of Govardhan Hill…!!!

Govardhan Puja is celebrated on the day after Diwali. It is the day upon which Lord Krishna defeated Indra, the deity of thunder and rain. As per the story, Krishna saw huge preparations for the annual offering to Indra and questions his father Nanda about it. He debated with the villagers about what their ‘dharma’ truly was. They were farmers, they should do their duty and concentrate on farming and protection of their cattle. He continued to say that all human beings should merely do their ‘dharma’, to the best of their ability and not pray or conduct sacrifices for natural phenomenon. The villagers were convinced by Krishna, and did not proceed with the special puja (prayer). Indra was then angered, and flooded the village. Krishna then lifted Mt Govardhan and held it up as protection to his people and cattle from the rain. Indra finally accepted defeat and recognized Krishna as supreme. This aspect of Krishna’s life is mostly glossed over – but it actually set up on the basis of the ‘karma’ philosophy later detailed in the Bhagavad Gita.

According to ancient Vaishnava legends the Vedic Deva (demigod akin to guardian angel), Indra (god of rain & lightning) was feared by human beings because he would either give the people no rain or flood them if he was not satisfied with their worship. When Krishna found out, he opposed the performance of sacrificial worship for Indra. He emphasized the importance of karma and doing ones duty. This made Indra angry at the boy Krishna (one of the incarnations of the Supreme God).

Indra thus invoked many clouds to appear in the sky and schemed to flood the region with rains lasting for seven days and seven nights. Krishna in reply then lifted Govardhan Hill, under which all the animals and people of the region took shelter, safe from the rains of Indra’s fury. Ultimately, Indra accepted defeat. He offered his prayers and left to his heavenly kingdom.

And now if to analyze the metaphysics behind such legends
of
Krishna’s lifting the hill on little finger
to save from a flood and Raasleela with Gopis,
a very important message comes out.

The hill was lifted on little finger of one hand only.
Why only little finger was chosen by boy Krishna instead of other fingers?

It has a deep metaphysical interpretation. In Sanskrit, “go” means senses.
Hill Goverdhan represents for total burden of senses
with its auspicious and inauspicious activities which one carries from one birth to another
till mind and senses do not get totally restrained
which comes through very tough spiritual austerities.

Now there is condition and till that condition is not fulfilled,
this burden can never be tolerated or carried out.
And that is to downsize the own ego form to maximum little extent
instead of living with highest level of arrogance
by showing power of fake knowledge and personality
which has no meaning and of zero value
while leading a spiritual life for attainment of ultimate bliss.
So to be down to earth should be the basic attribute of a true seeker.

Raasleela of Krishna with Gopis is also misinterpreted
and
normally people understand this act as a casual romantic game.
In fact our restrained mind and senses are like Gopis
and
once when these are tuned perfectly with Godly attributes
while traversing upon real path,
there happens a cosmic divine game round the clock.
This infact is Rassleela in metaphysics.

We must take into consideration all these metaphysical interpretations
which help a lot in gradual promotion of spiritual steps.

Humble Wishes.

माटी की काया में, अरे कोई तो दियना जलाओ रे…….!!!

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

मंगलमय दीपावली की शुभकामनाएं।

सविनय,

To achieve the state of steady contemplation is real war…..!!!

The throng of unrighteous impulses,
of
desire, wrath, attraction and repulsion,
and of desire and hunger,
all deviations from piety are the great enemies
that create attachment to the world.

They obstruct the seeker of truth by launching a vicious assault.
To overcome them is real war,
to subdue them, to contract oneself within one’s mind,
and to achieve the state of steady contemplation
is
real war.
