Some wonderful Pointers from the group virtual satsangs:

  • Why Satsangam: This is a very interesting message I received. It is so meaningful, I had to share it. There are four yugas widely accepted in Hinduism.   They are :
  1. Satya yug
  2. Treta yug (Ramayana)
  3.  Dwapara yug (Mahabharata)
  4. Kal yug (Present)

In satya yug, the figtht was between two worlds.( Devalok and Asura lok) Asura lok                  being the evil, was a different WORLD.In Treta yug, the fight was between Rama and Ravana.Both rulers from two different COUNTRIES.

 In dwapara yug, the fight was between Pandavas and Kauravas. Both good and evil from the SAME FAMILY.

Kindly note how the evil is getting closer..

For example, from a DIFFERENT WORLD to a DIFFERENT COUNTRY to the SAME     FAMILY.

Now, know where is the evil in Kalyug? It is inside us..Both GOOD AND EVIL LIVES WITHIN..

The battle is within us. Who will we give victory to..

 Our inner goodness or the evil within?

 There are six internal enemies ..Kama ..lust ..kordha..anger ..Lobha..greed ..Moha..desire   or attachment to worldly things instead of the supreme being ..Madha..ego or arrogance      ..matsrya..jealousy or envy ..these six things keep us away from God

 Easy solution is to have satsamgathyam.  Adi sankara gave a solution in Baja govindam . There is a sloka in bajagovimdam that talks about satsamgathyam:

           Satsangatve nissangatvam

            Nissangatve nirmohatvam

            Nirmohatve nishchalatattvam

            Nishchalatattve jeevanmukti

 Yes sath sang is good Margam, but with those sadhakas ONLY……who understand the REAL essence of Vedanta saram and practices very very seriously in there daily life the key qualities of sadhana: Mano nigraham, indriya nigraham and tapah

  From Satsangh (the company of the good) comes non-attachment, from non-             attachment comes freedom from delusion, which leads to self-settledness. From self-   settledness (delusionlesness) comes Jeevan Mukti (liberation in life). Company plays a    major role and it influences your mind and soul. If you are in bad company you acquire       bad habits, if you are in good company good habits, you have to better choose good             company for your own good. If you are in the company of HARI DASA’s (Servants of    GOD), saints and good teachers (Guru’s), you can learn things very easily, you don’t have to re-invent the wheel, what ever they learnt, they will pass on this knowledge to     you and you can easily acquire that. Especially the need of a good teacher is very  important for spiritual matters. Dear friend acquire the friendship and company of  devotional people and acquire spiritual knowledge, peace, good habits. If you are in a good company, the first benefit you get is, you get detached with the worldly matters, and  you get attached to divine things, if you reach that stage then you are very close to GOD.

One other important thing to practise is to bring sadhana into your lives every day ,           because unless we bring it into our lives all the books we read, all the discourses we listen   and all satsanghs we attend will go in vain , the real puja is done at heart.

Talking is easy , doing is all that makes difference to reach closer to lord.So the real step starts from us at the individual level.

  • Good Message: ” your life is natures gift ,Be happy and live fully”                                                                       ” please remember that you are not born with worries; they are acquired and    manufactured through the traverse of life ”                                                                                  “What happens to this worries , relatives , bonds and desires after you live the body????”
  • Real Mothers Love: “What is mother ‘s love”???

        Is it the care shown by a female gender across all the living species on earth?Or

        Is it a person or individual ???Or

        Is it the responsibility a person does as its “her child”??  Or

         Is it the feeling of possessiveness  in the part of the mother for her kids??? Or

         Is it an expression confined to her own offspring???

          The truth is so big , when one really knows it and understands it, it liberates            that person.Motherness is not confined to a gender and it’s not selfish and limited to there own kids .It’s the universal principle, which keeps the whole brahmanda alive.

  • Your are Magnificent: Dear family

 There is something magnificent in all of us; regardless of who we are, regardless of            where we come from , regardless of how old or young you are; regardless of what you        like or don’t like ; regardless of what mistakes and tragedies you went through ;regardless   of what has happened to you and your life , please know and never never never forget that you are SPECIAL,  because inside you is so special and so magnificent that the             whole UNIVERSE is bowing to it every second.Know it, Feel it and love it…. That’s why you are born.

Hari om

  •  What can be worshipped: What shud really be worshiped??…. How can a tamo tattva jada  swarupa or inert matter or substance be worshipped, when it can’t be concious of itself…..because worshipping such matter builds MeaningLess ATTACHMENT not divine love or devotion……for example person loving money or his BMW …. Is he divine or attached to materialism?

 The only thing that is worth worshippable as per our shastrs is SATTVIC tattva….. That’s why we worship COW …. Yes that person is divine.Having clarity in VEDANTA is very very very important in understanding the essence of  nature, please don’t fall pray to every book, every video, every discourse that people are    saying , try and understand the nature of the Supreme NATURE, it’s very easy, very simple, very very very close to the closest of you.

Just get into sadhana mode…. It fill unfold itself in your hearts.

Hari om tat sat

  • Practical Vedanta: Dear Family

 Mere study of the Vichar Sagar, Panchadasi, Gita, Upanishads, etc cannot bring in the      experience of pure Vedantic consciousness. Vedantic gossiping and dry discussions on        scriptures cannot help a man in feeling the unity and oneness of life. We should destroy      ruthlessly all sorts of impurities, hatred, jealousy, envy, idea of superiority and all       barriers that separate man from man. This can be done by incessant, selfless service of        humanity with the right mental attitude. Practical Vedanta is felt by serving mankind and   other beings, feeding sugar to an ant, grains to birds, grass to a cow and so on with PURE    LOVE……..dry discussions and meaningless fights over the nonessentials of religions.         The world is filled of People who study a few books and pose as Jivanmuktas. …..        Beware……..Many imagine that they can become Jivanmuktas by a little study of Laghu      Siddhanta Kaumudi and Tarka. Oneness of life can be had only by Self-realization             through constant spiritual practice and Sadhana ONLY. Study of scriptures can help us a bit, but it cannot make us a Jivanmukta.core is emphasized on How we are thinking and     how are we doing…. Is there PURE LOVE in it or not??

This is practical VEDANTA dear bhagavad bhandus

  •  Breath and Pranayama: Dear family

 Entire Jivarasi is gifted with only limited breaths, all swasas are wasted in angers and        frustratations, but eeswara gave them to us to learn , mature and evolve .Every moment is   for our learning and education ONLY.

 That’s why our elders always tell us to take long deep breaths to increase our longevity.      When We are angry or stressed out we tend to take short breathes.  That limited number of breaths God gave us will go to zero much faster when we continue live with anger or      stress.

Just by understanding and practicing the deeper science of pranayama, scientist found      neuron firing rate increases, oxygen supply to brain increases , cells in the lungs receptors  are wide open instead of congested , heart rate normalizes , all this is just at body level      and mind level and Vijnamaya kosha and anandamaya kosha level its unimaginable spiritual elevation.

 Imagine just with one shastra this much can happen , what happens when you learn and    live other secrets of our ancient scriptures ???

 Sometimes tears and prayers are not enough to thank god to have us born in           SANATHANA DHARMA… We are all supremely blessed already

  • What is the Vedic essence of hindu marriages?

  The term ‘vivaha’ means ‘vishesena vahati iti vivaha:’ Vivaha is that which gives special      rights.

What are those special rights? They are about the rights which the man can do only as a     married one, particularly all yajnas which he cannot do as a brahmachari without his       patni or wife.

 It is completion of a union of Purusha and Prakruthi.

  So what is this Purusha and Prakruthi that is existing everywhere and in everything           universally?

 Let’s take an example: Take the example of a car, the car by itself is not called the car without its power to ride   on the road, engine, brakes and ability of that thermal energy from the gas converting to  the electrical energy and then converting to mechanical and kinetic energy which is than   pushing the car forward.

  So car has 2 components, they are:

Body of the car + power that drives it = THE CAR

  (Purusha + Prakruthi = Samsar (The World)

 Husband + Wife = Samsaram( a small world )

 Can you imagine a situation of a car without the body but just has the power or car with   body but no power???

Similarly, can you imagine  a wife without a husband and vice versa, they are cosmically   intertwined into each other with the most purest bond.

 There cannot be a separate existence between them, they are ONE , that’s why it’s a           pavitra bhandam .

 Our senses with eyes and mind make it look like people, but with SADHANA you will     see them as none other than Laxmi Narayana swaroopa, they are universally everywhere.

 Marriage is divine and a special blessing , love every moment if it.

  • Holi spiritual meaning:Before wishing happy holi…..let’s please understand the meaning……Holika signifies ignorance, it’s not colors and playing……..Who is guru? And who is a swami?  And who is shishya??

They are man made differences ……They are so loosely used everywhere without proper    value and understanding …….no wonder the world is filled with so many fake babas and     swami,s and gurus…… Who is making them?????

It’s we the people, who understand things loosely and is causing such a huge impact on     the vedika dharma and its importance to a degree that people distrust it and converting to  other religions…..swami or guru is NOT a PERSON….read BG chapter 13 and understand    it to know more…..ignorant people become bakra to a EGO with there agendas for power,   money and supremacy…. Please beware.

 So what is Ignorance ????? It is a mental Kalpana, imaginations or wrong ideas that are     struck in your mind and not letting you know the reality , as this wrong programming of your mind is blocking it up see the TRUTH…..Allow the Vasanas and egoism to pass.   Break the clouds. Behind the clouds, there is the luminous sun. Behind the mind, there is   the self-radiant Atman. Purify yourself. Destroy the evil Vrittis. Plod on in the spiritual       path. You have taken this life for this purpose only. For Self-realization and the spiritual   path, Sanskrit is not at all necessary. You will have to understand the theory and essence     only. All the Sanskrit books are tendered into English and other languages. Be not            troubled on this score.

  • Cutting vegetables is not a Himsa .: Dear Family,

  Someone asked this question as we were cutting vegetables at dc kitchen yesterday and    this is the answer given to the boy.Should it not be considered as Himsa when we cut vegetables and fruits?

 Cutting vegetables is not a Himsa .There is no real consciousness in plants and trees,          although there is life in them. There is life in plants, sensation in animals, mentality in        human beings and spirituality in sages. There is no Visesha Ahankara and reflection of         Chaitanya in plants and trees. Hence they cannot experience pain. The tree will not say,      “I am experiencing pain”. The mind in plants and trees is not developed. It is quite             rudimentary. It is Jada and insentient. Life on earth will be impossible if we take cutting   vegetables also as Himsa.

 Now that we saw from the YouTube video the other day what is temple ? How is it          connected to our body? How our body itself is the temple and it’s the blue print for   outside temple ….. Now my dear God given family , please think further about who is the    Shila murthy in the temple and the REAL YOU in the body ???

 So when abhishekam is happening to the Shila MUrthy in the temple , who is it actually    happening to is it REAL SELF inside  our body or some external divinity ?

Should you feel and look at that abhishekam in silent meditation or watch it like a show ?

 And last question to ask ourselves…. Isn’t abhishekam happening every second already or   it happens once every 2 weeks in weekends in scheduled hours ?????

 Feel the divinity in you
