СМЫСЛ ЖИЗНИ

Смысл жизни в понимании Божественной Воли и проведении Божественной Воли. Не в проживании этой жизни в поисках т.н. мирского счастья, не служении своему эго, не в служении своей семье, фирме ,или ещё чему-либо, это всё хорошо, это надо делать на своём уровне, но это неверно делать смыслом жизни, если человек называет себя садху, ищущим освобождения - Мокши. Ибо все это майя-иллюзия.

Смысл жизни в понимании Бога, в понимании Божественной Воли, и в проведении Божественной Воли. Смысл жизни, чтобы позволять божественному проявляться через это тело, через разные деяния.
И в Ведической традиции, в традиции Санатана Дхармы это называется Джняна Шакти - Божественная Мудрость, Ичха Шакти – Божественная Воля и Крийя Шакти- Божественное Деяние.

И они представлены тремя богинями: Сарасвати, Лакшми и Парвати. Сила Божественной Мудрости - Джняна Шакти, это Сарасвати, аналог в Европейской традиции – София. Сила Божественной Воли - Ичха Шакти -это Лакшми, аналог в Европейской традиции – Фортуна, Богиня удачи, потому что Воля всегда приносит удачу.
И Сила Божественного Действия – Крийя Шакти, это Парвати или Дурга, супруга Шивы.

И вот эти три силы они пробуждаются,растут в нас, развиваются в процессе духовного пути, когда мы занимаемся йогой , и они позволяют нам освободиться от закона кармы, освободиться от своих ограничений, стать бесконечным, бессмертным существом, раскрыть свой божественный потенциал, понять его.

И эти силы, они исходят из Единого Источника.
И есть Источник, который их всех объединяет.
И мы называем этот Источник Бхагаван Даттатрея, Бог Шива, в Адвайта Веданте Его называют Брахман.
И это чистейшее Сознание вне имени, вне формы, в Нём нет субъекта и объекта. И именно этим чистейшим Сознанием занимается Адвайта Веданта. Для Адвайта Веданты крайне важно понять это чистое Сознание, раскрыть Атман внутри себя, раскрыть Абсолют.

Потому, что если мы не понимаем свою божественность, свою Абсолютную природу, то мы живём как в неведении, мы спим. И почему мы не можем познать пока, осознать, свою божественную природу? Потому что наш ум развёрнут наружу, вовне. И это называется бахир- мукхи- дришти. Дришти это видение, бахир - мукхи означает лицо повёрнутое наружу.

Но если мы повернёмся внутрь себя это называется антар- мукхи- дришти, то мы начнём постепенно осознавать свою Божественную природу.
Но сразу это делать не легко, так считается, по этому нужны объяснения, нужны беседы-сатсанги, нужен Мастер, нужна практика(садхана).
Мы должны овладеть этим искусством, понять ход мыслей святых мудрецов, овладеть этой философией и это поможет нам развернуть свой ум во внутрь и войти в пространство мистического опыта.

Адвайта Веданта не говорит о философии, потому, что Адвайта это прежде всего мистический опыт, ваш личный мистический опыт. Невозможно понять Адвайту на уровне философии, но можно самому пережить состояние Адвайты. И когда мы медитируем и осознаём – Я Есть Абсолют – Ахам Брахмасми, и это понемногу становится нашим собственным опытом, то мы можем понять Адвайту.

Only fools take life so seriously that they are constantly hurt. The wise look upon childhood, youth, old age, life and death as passing dramas, hence everything entertains them. When one become momentarily identified with tragic picture, he feels miserable but when he realizes that it is only a part of an entertaining variety show, he feels happy. God wants man to behold the changing pictures of personal and worldly life as a sort of variety entertainment.

The maiden who had expressed pity said, "He is the one called Milarepa. Filled with self-importance, we said all sorts of meaningless things. Now we must acknowledge our wrong-doing." I urged the maiden who had offered this prayer to do so. She gave me seven couch-shell bracelets and they all ofered prostrations and confessed their misdeeds. Then they requested a Dharma instruction, and in response I sang this song:

" To the Lord Compassionate one I address my prayers.
I shall teach authentic Dharma in a brief verse.

Above, in the divine palace the Joyous Provisional dharma is prized, the definitive, ignored.

Below, in the palace of the nagas
Material dharma is prized, the profound , ignored.

In between in this human realm of ours
Liar's dharma is prized, the Master's, ignored.

In the four regions of U and Tsang
Pedant's dharma is prized, the meditator's, ignored.

In the dark period of the degenerate age
The wicked are prized, the righteous, ignored.

In the eyes of such elegant maidens
A fine man is prized, the yogin, ignored.

In the ears of such youthful maidens
A brief verse sounds pleasing, a bit of dharma, off-pitch.

This is my oral instructions set forth in song,
My repayment for the seven conch shells,
A celebration for completing your confession. "

Then i sang this song about distinguishing the ways of feeling shame:

" I pay homage to the lord lamas.
Bless this beggar to understand shame.

Peta dear, bound by your shame,
Listen for a while to your brother's song.

You who feels shame out of ignorance and conventional thinking
Are ashamed of what carries no shame.
I, a yogin who knows the meaning of shame,
Lives with my three gates relaxed --
How could I overstate or understand shame?

Everyone knows that our bodies are born male or female,
And that we have organs to prove it.

Those who guard against embarrassing and shameful activity
Are not found among common people of the world.
The girl who is shameful is bought for a price.
The child who is shameful is had through a man in your lap.

The results of craving, malice, and perverted views
Are immoral conduct, hypocrisy, theft,
And the betrayal of trustworthy friends.
These are embarrassing and shameful, although few avoid them.\

All meditators who renounce this life --
Through profound secret vajra behavior,
The practice of supreme quintessential instruction --
Bring their human life into the Dharma
And see no point in feeling phony shame.
So Peta, do not create your own misery,
But rest in this knowledge as it is. "

Thank you, Thank you,
Who manifests even as 'I'

Glory be to the Supreme Power,
whose magnificence is being
portrayed in every moment.

To live with a heart of gratitude,
This is the best attitude.

Because without knowing precisely why,
Your whole life becomes like a tree
That's blossoming and blooming
With flower and fruit and shade and
Beauty and strength.

Thank you for the creative power of the universe,
Thank you for the ability to say: Thank you.

The joy, the peace, the harmony,
in expressing gratitude for all this,
And all that is.

Thank you.

Why should we not postpone our spiritual practices even for one day? Bhagawan lovingly and assertively implores us today.


These days, people are content to visualise and experience evanescent worldly joys. People have no rest. Spending the nights in sleep and days in eating and drinking, they grow and grow, until, in old age, death pursues them. Then, they can’t decide where to go or what to do; all senses have weakened. No one and nothing can rescue them, so they end as obedient meat in the jaws of death! How sad it is that this human life, precious as an invaluable diamond that can’t be priced at all, has been cheapened to the standard of a worn-out worthless coin! There is no use repenting later without meditating on God or practising some spiritual discipline to realise Him now. It is the right of the aspirant (sadhaka) to have the vision of God and not the sight of death (Yama-darshan)!

- Prema Vahini, Ch 41.

'Our rishis, our mystics, have worked on the development of the emotional dimension in humans. That is why every village in India has a big temple that is bigger than even the school or any other facility of the village. The temple is the primary thing for any village settlement to be created. All other things are secondary. This is because our masters worked continuously to develop the emotional dimension of a human being. They knew that the development of emotions is the basic necessity for holistic growth and development. Once a man has developed in the emotional level, he will have everything, his life will be just heaven.'

You may be worried about the wrong you have committed, but God is not. What is past is past. You are His child, and whatever wrong you have done came about because you didn't know Him. He doesn't hold against evil done under the influence of ignorance. All He asks is that you not repeat your wrong actions. He wants only to find out whether or not you are sincere in your intention to be good.
