  • Om Sai Ram,
          Some good knowledge from Yoga Vasistha. Yoga Vasistha book deals entirely on selfrealisation(Atma-Sakshatkar).
    Prince Rama after returning from a pilgrimage of holy places, developed strong dispassion (Vairagya). He was not getting any interest in worldly enjoyments, like other people do. Sage Vasistha then instructed him on true knowledge (Jnana Upadesh). This knowlegde constitues the book Yoga-Vaishtha.
          To give practical experience of this same knowledge, to thier devotees, is the mission of the saints. Sai baba asked Rs. 15 as daksina from Prof. Nakre, who was reading Yoga Vaishtha.
          Some good Upadesh from this book...

    महीयसां पादरजोभिषेकं निष्किंचनानां न वृणीत यावत ॥
     



    Even if the listening to Shastras has happened. even if the intellect becomes extremely sharp
    Yet the vision of the nature of the self is not understood, even uptil the end of the millenium, O Raghunatha ...42

    O, so long as one does not do a bath in the dust of feet of the Sadguru
    Until then, the intellect does not ever go near the nature of the self, O Rama ...43

  • Sai Ram Anupam ji. Yours words are really encouraging... There is a great treasure that lies hidden, & it remains hidden because of want of listeners. but when good & wise people such as you behold this treasure, then all the knowledge inside flows freely, just as milk flows from cows's udder when calf dashes against it.

    Yes you are correct that many treasures are lying hidden but again treasure is a treasure, Kindly do not stop the flow of this Great Treatise, as and when it will flow, even if few followers will benefit, that solves the purpose

    AS THE ABOVE SHLOKA so very clearly states the GREAT TRUTH, the Importance of GURU more Than GOD

    Kindly continue the same, even if one Shloka a day

    MAY BABA be with you always

  • It is for this reason, that without sadguru, the experience of the imperceptible (i.e. Brahma or self) is not to be had, know this.
    The unreal illusion and ignorance is not broken, if there be no surrender whole heartedly ...44

    He knows the happiness of sense gratification fully, just as poisoned food is eaten eagerly ...64

    One whom fortune has left, one who is ill-fortuned wretched merciless
    Unto he himself, there is forgetfullness of self-nature & he has full inclination towards sense gratification for gaining happiness ...65

  • but those sense gratification objects are great sorrow. The fools do not know this, no matter whatever be done.
    Covered with a little happiness, because of that they have longing for sense gratification always ...66

    There exists happiness in sense gratification, they say, they are too foolish, O Raghupati
    those who do not know the taste of milk. Just as animals cherish dried grass (straw) ...67

  • 7.Victory Victory be unto the best of all, the one better than the twenty five tattvas*. The ultimate witness of everything, the best Shri Guru.

    8. Victory Victory be unto the master of the world, the full bliss giving wish fulfilling tree. The founder of transcendental bliss, the best Shri Guru.

    9. Victory Victory be unto the inconcievable, the attributeless, Existence-Knowledge-Bliss, the supreme conciousness. The all pervading, the all exclusive, the best Shri Guru.

    10. Victory Victory be unto the statue of self-bliss, the formless with form. The one ever free from darkness, the Lord of the world, the best, Shri Guru.



    * The Tattvas - the fundamental elements out of which the whole creation occurs, just as a particular food item is prepared out of various ingredients.
    In the Samkhya doctrine there are 25 Tattvas:
    1. Purusha (Transcendental Self)
    2. The uncreated (unmanifest) Prakriti (primordial nature)
    3. Mahat/Buddhi (intellect)
    4. Ahamkara (ego, consciousness of self)
    5. Manas (mind)
    6-10. The five sense-organs
    11-15. The five motor-organs
    16-20. The five subtle elements
    21-25. The five gross elements
    Tattvas 3-25 evolve from primordial nature. All of the Tattvas account for the totality of the unverse as a whole, and each individual human being.

    Thanks V2biritji. What are the 5 motor organs? Kindly request you to detail a bit?
    Kashmir Shaivism talks of 36 Tattwas........... bit confusing.... :)

  • Anupam Ji,
       Trully speaking i am no expert in these matters, but from what i read, i understand that the 5 motor-organs are the Karmendriyas i.e. the organs by which we do karma. They include the organs for speaking, moving, reproduction, evacuation, action i.e. mouth, legs, sexual organ, anus, hands
    We have freedom to us these Karmendriyas.
       There are more than one philosophies such as the Samkhya philosophy that try to explain how the creation of universe occured. Hence the difference in the number of Tattwas. Only Sai baba knows, which one is accurate or may be all are correct in thier own perspective.
       
    Om Sai Ram
