Jai Maha Vishnu! ૐ

Om ! That (Brahman) is infinite, and this (universe) is infinite.
The infinite proceeds from the infinite.
(Then) taking the infinitude of the infinite (universe),
It remains as the infinite (Brahman) alone.
Om ! Let there be Peace in me !
Let there be Peace in my environment !
Let there be Peace in the forces that act on me !

That which helps you cross from the fear of birth, aging and death is called Tharakam (Tharayathi means Crosses). Understanding the appearance of the living being and God as separate entities is due to illusion and then examining and understanding the differences which exist in the world by the method of, “It is not this”, “It is not this” and at last what remains at last is the Adhvaya Brahman (which does not have two forms). To get it we have to practice three aims.

In the middle of body there exists the Sushumna Nadi which is as bright as the sun and as cool as the moon. It starts from Mooladhara and goes up to Brahmarandra which is in the top middle of the skull. It is well known that in the middle of it there exists Kundalani which is as bright as crores of suns and as thin as the lotus thread. The man who sees that with his mind’s eye attains salvation by getting rid of all sins.

One who sees constant light in the top portion of his, in the middle of his forehead has attained mastery of yoga.

Wherever it is, if there is light above the head of a one, he is a yogi.

The yoga within is of two types viz Poorva (pre) and Uthara (post). The pre yoga is tharaka and the post yoga is amanaska (beyond mind).

That which can be realized by sensory organs is one which has a form. That which is in between the eye lids is without form. Always for understanding the things within, practice with deep application of mind is necessary. In Tharaka yoga, the concepts like Daharakasa are understood only by the mind’s eye. The Uthara (post) yoga is without form. It is beyond the mind.

Without batting the eye lids to see inside and outside, what we are aiming to see is called Sambhavi Mudra. The place where an expert in that type of mudra lives becomes very holy.

By the help of a great teacher one tries to find the Thuriya state hidden in either the sahasrara (thousand petal lotus) or the cave of the heart or end of the 12 Nadis. Ability to see it is only through the help of a great teacher.

If the teacher, who is a scholar in Vedas, who is a devotee of Lord Vishnu, who does not have jealousy in his mind, who is a great expert in yoga, who practices Yoga and who is the personification of Yoga blesses us, all the ties imposed by birth will vanish. At that moment all the sins committed in all the births will be destroyed. The Upanishad tells that he will achieve all the Purusharthas.

Om ! That (Brahman) is infinite, and this (universe) is infinite.
The infinite proceeds from the infinite.
(Then) taking the infinitude of the infinite (universe),
It remains as the infinite (Brahman) alone.
Om ! Let there be Peace in me !
Let there be Peace in my environment !
Let there be Peace in the forces that act on me !

Here ends the Advaya-Tarakopanishad belonging to the Sukla-Yajur-Veda

CELESTIAL SONG

Sing the song of celestial love, O singer!
May the divine fountain of eternal grace and joy
enter your soul.
May Brahma, (the Divine One),
Pluck the strings of your inner soul
with His celestial fingers,
And feel His own presence within,
Bless us with a divine voice
That we may tune the harp-strings of our life
To sing songs of Love to you.

Prostrations to the source of bliss, earthly and heavenly.
Prostrations to the auspicious one, more auspicious than anything else. Prostrations to the one present in holy rivers and in idols installed on their banks.

' SOMA ! THE CREATOR GOD, HUMAN SOUL
AND HERBAL JUICE '

Thou art the Creator, O Soma Lord
Of this manifest, non-manifest world.
Thou art Protector, our Kind, O God,
Bestower to us, our joyous world.

Destroyer of all, that is bad and evil,
Giver of all, that is good and civil.
Motivate our souls to soar so high,
Endowed with virtues, touching the sky.

Make our bodies, so fit and fine
O medicinal juice of herbs divine.
Killing all germs, generating decay,
To make our lives swing, hilarious sway.

Wondrous is thy magic, O Soma.

Each planet encircling Luminous.

Controlled by Thee. O Pointer of path.

Thy universal law, appropriate to all.
Controls and moves, destines of all.
Thou art great, our noble benefactor,
Our salutations to thee, our beloved protector.

The first creator (Brahma) knew the Supreme Person.
He in turn made him known to Indra (king of the gods)
for the benefit of all beings. Hence, even today he who
knows him and the creation thus, as pervaded and
permeated and possessed by this Supreme Person,
attains immortality. There is no other way for spiritual perfection.

Rig Veda 1.35.9

“The sun moves in its own orbit but holding earth and other heavenly bodies in a manner that they do not collide with each other through force of attraction.

10.22.14 of Rig Veda says:

“This earth is devoid of hands and legs, yet it moves ahead. All the objects over the earth also move with it. It moves around the sun”.

Rig Veda 5.40.5 has a phrase which translates to

“O Sun! When you are blocked by the one whom you gifted your own light (moon), then earth will be surprised by the sudden darkness.”

This is a remarkably accurate description of a solar eclipse.

The Vedas’ detailed descriptions of the universe, planets, and other phenomena demonstrates the vast knowledge of the people of those times far before modern civilization even started to exist.

Rishi Jaimini, the author of Purva Mimamsa and Utttara Mimamsa, explains Dharma as:

"Sa hi nisreyasenapumshamsamyunaktitipra-tijaneemahe
tadabhidhiyatechodanalakshnoarihodharmaha"

―"Dharma is that which is indicated by the Vedas as conducive to the highest good."

Shankaracharya‘s definition of Dharma :

Acharya Shankar defines dharma in the following words:

अभ्युदयनिःश्रेयसकारणो चोदनालक्षणो धर्मः

"That which the Sruti (the Vedas) prompts us to do and which will result in our material and spiritual advancement is dharma."

Dharma is that which accomplishes the three tasks of :

1. Keeping the social system in an excellent condition
2. Bringing about worldly progress of every living being
3. Causing progress in the spiritual realm as well
