SLOKA FOR THE MONTH JUNE 2015


“ Shochyaashochyasi kam shochyam deenam deenanukampase
Kasya Ko Va Nu Shochyosthi  Dehesminbudbudopame”

  Only if those who lectureaabout philosophy have true wisdom the audience listening to such lectures will attain the same. Else Vedantha will remain only in the books. Sri Suka preached Philosophy to Parikshith. He was to die in 7 days. Realising that this life is temporary Suka preached Vedantha to Parikshith. Bharathayogi preached Gnana to Rahuugana. Rahugana was on his way to listen to the upadesha of Kapila Vasudeva. So he was a nuththamaadhikari. Barathayogi preached philosophy not to those who came to kill him at the Kali temple but to the rightly deserving Rahuugana. Krishna taught Udhdhva the depth of philosophy. Krishna also preached Arjuna Vedantha to restore his peace of mind. So can we give many examples like Kapila Vasudeva- Devahuthi Bheeshma- Dharamputra Yagnavalkya-Janaka etc.
                        Tara was a mahapathivratha and a wise woman. She knew darma.Hence she deserved to listen to Vedantha. Vali had breathed his last. Tara wept and lamented a lot. Vedantha relieves suffering but it depends on each person’s maturity. Hence Rama ordered Hanuman to console her. Aanjaneya swami himself was a Vedanthi. He advised her “ The body is temporary. It is like a bubble on a lotus leaf. It might burst any time. So is this body. Aathma is immortal. The jeevan thinks of it as badda ( tied up) because of maya. Hence this maya has to be destroyed by the grace of guru. One has to realise that we are but the aathmaswarupa. Only then we shall enjoy eternal happiness.
