Krishna Kaivalya book in English
Krishna Kriya Kaiwalya
Kowta Markandeya Sastry
OM SRI YOGANANDA GURUPARABRAHMANE NAMAHA!
This book “KRISHNA KRIYA KAIWALYA”” is written with the purpose of explaining how Bhagavan Sri Krishna has given the Kriya Yoga throughMahavatar Babaji, Sri Sri Lahiri Mahasaya, Swami Sri Yukteswar and Paramahansa Sri Yoganada to us so that we will get out of misery and live happily and also will have reunion with Brahman ultimately. and His creation is not myth. It is reality. It is completely scientific.
A minimum of 15 – 20 years of continuous, strenuous study is required to become a good doctor, engineer or a scientist. So, to understand Spirituality definitely certain years of continuous sadhana is required. Simultaneously, Spiritual books are also required to be read. So study of books and practice of sadhana should go hand in hand.
By showing a stone and magnifying it 10,000 times and calling it a mountain does not Satisfy the student. If he is shown a mountain by taking him to one as such shall Satisfy him and he will properly and perfectly understand. So is the case with esoteric knowledge.
This book has come straight out of my heart with easy illustrations in a scientific way. I was intuitively guided by Guru& Babaji throughout the book. To understand God & His creation no bombastic language or understanding slokas are required. Isss…. + Loka = Sloka. So silence your inner world. You will find God. Too much of reading books shall confuse us and creates ego. To realize the sweetness of a mango just eat it. So God is.

Sri Krishna—the great Avataar
Birth --- Details
Lord ShreeKrishna is a very important Avataar of Shree Vishnu. Avataar means coming down to the earth. Soorasen was the king of Mathura. Vasudeva was his son. Devaki was the wife of Vasudeva. He had another wife called Rohini. She was staying in Vraja under the protection of Nanda, the king of Vraja. Nanda was the friend of Vasudeva. Ugrasen was the king of Bhoja. Kansa was his son and Devaki was his daughter. One day Kansa was riding his chariot with his sister Devaki and Brother-in-law Vasudev on the roads of his Bhoja kingdom. Then he heard a voice telling him that the eigth offspring of his sister Devaki will be the cause of his death. Hearing this the evilminded Kansa became furious and wanted to kill his sister and brother-in-law. Devaki persuades him in not killing them with the promise that each and every offspring shall be handed over to him to do whatever he likes. Kansa puts both of them in jail. There after he kills six of Devaki’s children one after another brutally.
Nanda was the king of Vraja or Brindaavan. Yasoda was his wife. Yogamaya keeps the Adiseshu in the womb of Rohini, another wife of Vasudeva, with the orders of Lord Srimaha Vishnu. Adiseshu is the part of Lord Srimaha Vishnu. People think that the seventh offspring of Yasoda was a miscarriage. Yogamaya herself takes birth in the womb of yasoda, the wife of Nanda, as ordained by Lord Srimaha Vishnu. Vishnu himself enters the womb of Devaki. After the birth of Vishnu, ordained by Lord, Vasudeva carries the child in a basket crosses the river Yamuna and goes to Brindavan. Yamuna herself gives the way so that Vasudeva can easily cross the rfiver. He keeps the Lord in the bed of Yasoda. He returns the just born yogamaya of Yasoda back to jail and keeps the infant on Devaki’s bed. Till that time all the caretakers of the jail were sleeping as dead. Even the doors were opened automatically. Hearing the cries of the child Kansa comes by running to kill the eighth child. When he was about to kill the child the yogamaya flies away and tells that the real male child is already born and being brought up in Brindavan.
Nanda names the son of Yasoda as SriKrishna and Rohini’s son as Balarama. Balarama is a part of Paramatma i.e., Adiseshu. Srikrishna started showing his powers right from the state of infancy. He kills a demon called Pootana who came in the guise of giving milk to Srikrishna by sucking the milk of her poisoned breasts. In fact this is a symbolism of sucking the poison of an evil heart by removing Tamasa Guna. Poo means of full of Tana means materialism. Thereafter He kills sakatasura symbolizing fickle mind. Likewise He kills Trunaavarta symbolizing Taamasa Guna or negative quality. Nanda in fact was a devine person called Drona. He is one of the eight divine vasus. His wife was Dhara meaning earth. Drona was born as King Nanda of Vraja and Dhara as his wife Yasoda. SriKrishna was born on Sravana Bahula Ashtami indicating the importance of practice of Ashtaangayoga so that the darkness of ignorance can be uprooted. That day is famous as Janmaashtami.
The great acts of Srikrishna.
Srikrishna, the incarnation of God, started showing his prowess right from the beginning of his birth. He cherishes cow milk, butter and curd. These are the symbols of purity that are required by Yogi. Fed up with his acts. one day Yasoda ties Srikrishna to a big stone grinder that was used in those times for grinding paddy. Whenever she wanted to put a knot the rope becomes shorter by two inches. Seing his mother tired of tying the knot, Srikrishna obliges and gets tied to the stone. This is to show the surrendering of God to his devotee. He rolls down the grinding stone by crawling through two big trees. The trees fell down with their roots. Two divine people come out of the felled trees. Their names are Nalakoobara and Manigreeva. They are the arrogant sons of Kubera, the money God. Cursed by Narada, the great wandering saint, they became trees. He kills the demon who comes in the form of whirlwind. Mind is like a whirlwind. Likewise he kills a demon called Bakaasura and also Aghaasura who comes in the form of a python in Gokulam. These killings indicate that the devotee should be beyond Gunas and have a fixed mind. Once in Gokulam the herds of cows and all the cow herds were missing in Gokulam. Gokulam is a place near the banks of Yamuna of Brindavan. Then Srikrishna himself takes all the forms of cows and cowherds for full one year so as to remove the sorrow as well as doubts in the minds of their parents and masters of the cows. This is the indication of Srikrishna’s all pervasiveness. He also kills a poisonous snake called Kaaleeya in the lake of Kalindi. This symbolizes the removal of desire, anger, greed, aattachment, pride and envy so as to become divine. Gopi means thought(s). The consciousness between the thoughts is called Krishnaconsciousness. Srikrishna steals the attires of the Gopikas, the belles of Gokulam. This symbolizes bare all before God. The thoughts of sadhaka should be totally on God and all other things shall be secondary to him. He sends his friends to the Brahmins who were doing yagna for food. The Brahmins ridicule the Gopalas, the friends of srikrishna. Then the wives of those Brahmins bring food for Srikrishna and his friends with utmost devotion. This indicates that the sadhaka must do his act with concentration on God only but not on the methodical procedures or rituals. Srikrishna lifts up Govardhan mountain with his little finger and holds it on his little finger for seven days to protect his friends and cows from heavy rains ordered by Lord Indra. Here Indra symbolizes mind and rain(s) indicates thoughts. The sadhaka must get rid ohis thoughts on materialistic deeds and develops his bondage with Brahman more and more. Srikrishna kills a demon Kesi in Brindavan sent by Kansa. Kesi means hair. Hair represents tamoguna or negative quality.
Kansa, the king of Bhoja, sends his minister Akroora to Vraja to pick up Krishna and Balarama. On the way to Bhoja kingdom Srikrishna kills Chanoora and Balarama kills Mushtika. Both are the wrestlers sent by Kansa. At that time the age of both Srikrishna and Balarama was five years. Later Srikrishna kills an elephant called Kuvalayapeeda. This indicates the mighty strength of God. Kubja, the servant maid of Kansa besmears Srikrishna with Sandalwood powder and adores him with a garland with utmost reverence and dedication, He not only removes her hump back and ugliness but also marries her clearly indicates the affection of God towards his devotees. Sage saandeepa is the master of Srikrishna and Balarama. The son of Sandeepa was swept away by sea. Both Srikrishna and Balaram goes into the sea of Prabhasa and brings back the son and presents him to Saandeepa. This symbolizes the importance of Sadguru.. Srikrishna kills Kansa. Kansa’s wives Astiand Prapti go to their father Jarasandha, the king of Magadha. Jarasandha invades Mathura seventeen times to kill Srikrishna. Evrytime he gets defeated and flees back to Magadha. Srikrishna leaves him everytime with kindness and pity on him. Srikrishna builts a town underneath the sea and keeps his folk there. He keeps Balaram in Mathra. Kaalayavana is a very strong man. He was a friend of Jarasandha. Kaalayavana runs after Srikrishna to kill him. Muchikunda was the son of Maandhaata. After several years of penance he was resting in a cave. with Yoganidra. Srikrishna enters this cage running and hides in a crner behind Muchikund. The raging Kalayavana enters the cave and kicks Muchikund thinking that he was Srikrishna. The disturbed Muchikund opens his yogic eyes. The rays of radiance from his eyes electrocutes Kalayavana killing him instatntly. This indicates not only the dexterity of Srikrishna but also the power of Yoga. Bhishmaka was the king of Vidarbha. Rukmi was his son and Rukmini was his daughter. Rukmini loves Srikrishna. He marries Rukmini by forcibly taking her out from the clutches of her brother Rukmi. He marries Jambavati, the daughter of Jambavant, Satyabhama, the daughter of Satrajit, mitravinda, the sister of Avanti king, Satya, the daughter of Kosala king, Bhadra, the sister of Kekaya king santardanaad, Lakshmana, the daughter of Mudra king. All these show the universal love of God.
Srikrishna gets Jarasandha killed by Bhima, one of the five Pandavas, shows the dexterity of God. .Later on Srikrishna kills Sisupaala and Dantavaktra and liberate them. Sisu means child like innocence of body attachment. Danta means teething stage which also indicate child like innocence of body attachment. One should get rid of this attachment for liberation.

Yoga giver Srikrishna
Imam vivaswate yogam proktavaanaham avyayam vivaswaan manave praaha manurikshwaakavebraveet. Gita 4---1
From above sloka it is clarified that Srikrishna is the giver of Yoga. In this sloka Krishna told Arjuna:
The pure wisdom of union of soul and spirit is called Jeevabrahmaikyagnaanam and is unperishable. This knowledge is called Nishkaamakarmayoga. He says that he has imparted this knowledge to Sun in the past. Sun is the replica of all pervading light of the Brahman in Sahasrara Chakra on the top & centre of head called Brahmarabdhram. This light of knowledge was imparted to Manu means descended to Antahkarana or mind. Then it was imparted to Ikshwaaku. Iksh means eye. This eye is existing in the place called Kootastha between two eyes of forehead. This is called third eye. This eye can be opened through long and intensive meditation. So this knowledge of uniting soul with Spirit descended to the third eye. Then it was further descended to Rajarshis. Rajarshis means senses. Then it is forgotten. That means Cosmic consciousness first enters Brahmarandhram. Then enters Sahasraara Chakra. This is called Atma surya or Sun. Then it descends to Antahkarana. From antahkarana to Agna +ve Chakra of Kootastha, from Agna +ve Chakra to third eye in the Agna +ve Chakra, and from third eye to Sense organs. Then Cosmic consciousness further percolates throughout the body. Because of Maya we forget the source of energy by indulging fully in worldly affairs. As such we suffer proportionate to our forgetfulness of the source energy i.e., God the father.after long sufferings, we turn to a Sadguru like Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda for learning Yoga so as to return to our home i.e., God the father. This Sadhana is for that only. In this Sadhana the business of senses are to be halted first through Pranayama techniques. Then the unsteady mind & life force are made steady. By this process the third in the Agna +ve Chakra is opened. Then with incessant meditation the consciousness of sadhaka or meditator reaches Atmasurya or sun soul in sahasrara chakra. Then the consciousness exit through Brahmarandhra and merges with the Spirit. This is called the union of soul and Spirit or Kaivalya. Srikrishna, the greatest Yogi, exhorted this knowledge in Gita through several types of Pranayama techniques. Each and every technique is a Yagna for which the investment is Swaasa or Breath but not any butchering of an innocent animal.
The total period of existence of Srikrishna, the greatest incarnation is 125 years, 7 months and 8 days. He was 87 years old at the time of Gita Knowledge to Arjuna.
Lord Krishna says: Oh, Arjuna be a nimittamaatra that is do your duty as though you are working for God without aspiring for result. In this way even if you are to kill people in thousands in this Mahabharata war, you will not become a sinner. So each and every body who follows this dictum of Bhagavan Srikrishna in letter and spirit shall become a Krishnian.
Lord Jesus Christ says: if some one gives a slap to you then show the other cheek. So each and every body who follows this dictum of Lord Jesus Christ in letter and spirit shall become a Christian.
Arjuna Vishaada, Sankhya, karma, Gnaana and AtmasamyamaYogas are called Karma Shatkam which means Sravanam (hearing).
Vignaana, Aksharaparabrahma, Rajavidya rajaguhya, vibhuti, viswaroopa sandarsana and Bhakti Yogas are called Bhakti Shatkam which means Mananam (memorising).
Kshetrakshtragnavibhaga, gunatrayavibhaga, purushottamaprapti, aivasurasampadwibhaga, Sraddhatraya vibhaga and Mokshasanyasa yogas are called Gnanashatkam which means nidhidhyasanam or Samadhi meditation.
The subtle mind consists of impressions of billions of unfulfilled desires of the past births. These will be completely eliminated through Yoga Samadhi. The Samadhi acquired Yogi shall benefit not only himself but also the people around him. In super conscious level Yogi shall acquire the Theta wave state. At this state the Yogi shall require minimum glucose. To obtain the state of divinity is the ultimate goal of meditator.
The brain shall respond to physical problems. The mind responds to internal problems. As such to obtain divinity one should divert one’s mind internally. Mind can be made steady either by meditation on God or by Gnana i.e., Wisdom. Cerebrum is the centre of consciousness and seat of voluntary process in human skull. Cerebellum is the seat of coordinating centre. This Cerebellum does the work without any hesitation /interruption in conjunction with Cerebrum and causes peace and tranquility. When there is hindrance to this process i.e., when negativity occurs the coordinating centre i.e., Cerebellum cannot work with Centre of consciousness & voluntary process i.e., Cerebrum due to hesitation. The more the hesitation of Cerebellum the more is the disturbance. This leads to the faux pass of the human. Then more and more he will have Greediness, revenge and miserliness. Habit of telling lies shall be taking place in human sub consciousness. When the meditator is acquiring divine nature he shall hear the auspicious sound of OM. This means his KUNDALINI is awakening. This awakened KUNDALINI further will be hastened by Diensephalan. The Cerebrum & pineal gland are responsible for super conscious state. This super conscious state in Sanskrit is called Aadhyaatmika Kendra. This pineal gland start drying up from the age of seventh year. This leads to destruction of constructive attitude. Limbic system in the brain is responsible for mental behaviour/subtle body. This mental state in Sanskrit is called Aadhidaiwika Kendra. Hypothelmus gland is responsible for mental behaviour/subtle body. Pituitary gland is behind the kootastha i.e., the place behind the eyes in the Aagna+chakra. Hypothelmus gland is sandwiched between Aagna+chakra and Pituitary gland. This Aagna+chakra commands the physical body issuing instructions. This physical state in Sanskrit is called Aadibhowtika Kendra. Cerebellum is the coordinator of physical (Aadibhowtika) and super conscious (Aadhyaatmika) states.
The excitation of Pineal gland is imperative for constructive ideas. For this the third eye between two eye brows is required to be excited.. For this kriyayoga and the chanting of Gayatri mantra is essential. Using the yogic methods for opening of third eye shall lead to mental as well as physical happiness and hence healthiness.
Melatonium is the chemical required for sound sleep. If this chemical is active for 1 ½ hour it is enough for sound sleep. This Melatonium is organized by Pineal gland. Because of the drying up of Pineal gland we will not get proper sleep and hence restlessness.
The Aagna+chakra in the kootastha shall be sending Its instructions to the other chakras/ plexus/junction Boxes through the Pitutary gland behind the eyes. These instructions are received by Exocrine & Endocrine glands. Exocrine glands are associated with digestive system. Endocrine glands are duct less glands secreting hormones directly into the blood which carries these hormones to the organs in the body. These hormones decrease or increase carbohydrates, proteins and lipids acting through the cells. These hormones make the cells to prepare new proteins or help the cells to grow or act on other endocrine glands for controlling their function. For example Manipura chakra at the navel consists of adrenalin gland , Anaahata chakra at the Heart consists of Thymus gland. Visuddha chakra at the throat consists of Thyroid gland get instructions from the Aagna+chakra like this. So it is essential to do Yoga for the healthy functioning of these chakras or junction boxes.
After getting up from the bed, after attending nature calls, if one does take bath and do Soorya namaskaarams ( certain Yogaasanaas specifically to be done at Sun rise & Sun set time) then Moolaadhara chakra and its related organs shall work healthily. If one takes food with the money earned by him justly and not by any illegal means then his Swadhisthaana Chakra and its related organs shall function healthily. If one admires the beauty of nature and starts seeing in the nature then his Manipura Chakra and its related organs shall function healthily. Participating whole heartedly in Cosmic Chantings, Prayers, and listening to Classical and tender music like Karnataka & Hindustaani etc but not percussionist loud music and trying to listen to Divine Sound OM then his Visuddha chakra and its related organs shall function healthily. If one hears Divine Sound OM in Meditation then his KUNDALINI is awakened. For functioning of Thymus gland in Heart Yoga is required. Blood circulation is improved by Yoga meditation. Then each and every cell shall get oxygen. Then both sympathetic para sympathetic nerves shall work in coordination.
Brain consists of three types neuro harmones which are responsible for waata(gas), pitta(heat) and sleshmam(phlegm). These three are to be balanced for proper health. For proper health one should have strong immune system. For this Mitochondria in the cells is to be improved. Mitochondria is a power generator which exists in each living cell.
If the breathing system is improper then the system of removing carbon in the blood and adding oxygen in the lungs shall be in peril. This system of oxygenating blood is done by lungs at the rate of 15 times per second. This is called pulse rate. 35% of Oxygen was available in the nature 100 years ago. Presently it is reduced to 19%. But oxygen is very much required for healthy living. So only Yogi can withstand this deficiency due to his techniques of Pranayama i.e., proper breathing techniques. The stage has come to getting Oxygen from commercial Oxygen selling saloons in countries like Japan making Oxygen Even the birds of nature are not available due to emission of Radio waves from microwave towers etc.. One can increase his pulse rate by practicing Antah kumbhaka Pranayama breathing techniques. One can decrease his pulse rate by practicing Bahya kumbhaka Pranayama breathing techniques. Pranayama breathing techniques.consist of controlling atanomous nervous system, immunization capacity. If one can hear divine sound OM then he can rejuvenate the diseased parts. With the increase of KUNDALINI power his life force will in crease and hence he remains healthy and happy..
Normally Yogi gets answers to his queries in his Samadhi state. How he gets answers is beyond logic. This is called intuition. Don’t confuse intuition with intellect. Intellectual observations may be right or wrong but intutional ideas cannot be wrong.
10 lakhs years of healthy life is required for removal of accumulated Karma. Then only animal man becomes man, from man he will btransformed to divine man and from there to GOD the father. This is possible only through practice of astaangaYoga of Sage Patanjali. Illiterate shall utilize his intellect up to 5%, learned up to 8%, and the Yogi utilizes the total 100% intelligence through Astaanga Yoga. To impart the benefits of Yoga to the mankind is the bounden duty of Yogi. Then it is up to the people to practice Yoga Meditation i.e., Dhyana or not. One cannot find unlimited happiness in the limited world. It is something like searching water in the mirages. Yogi only can find happiness in meditation. So one should excite the sleeping KUNDALINI in Mooladhara chakra and wake it up and then the awakened KUNDALINI should be guided to reach Sahasrara chakra in the head. Then only one will travel from inertia to divinity.
SOORYA NAADI---- CHANDRA NAADI
Chandra naadi exists in the left nostril and Surya naadi exists in the right nostril. That is if the life force enters through left nostril then it is called Chandra naadi. If the life force enters through right nostril then it is called Surya naadi. In Sanskrit these naadis are also called swaraas.
One should maintain soorya naadi i.e., breathing is to be done through right nostril on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday (full moon to new moon i.e., Krishnapaksha) and Saturday morning. Similarly Chandra naadi i.e., breathing is to be done through left nostril on Monday, wednesday, Thursday (new moon to full moon i.e., shukla paksha), Friday and Saturday night.. Otherwise one will face negative tendencies like conflicts in the house, personal works will be spoiled , unnecessary travels and ill health.. By putting a wooden arms rest in the armpits and pressing it tightly or by lying on the left arm on even wooden flank/ floor shall make the life force to enter through the right nostril (soorya naadi) and vice versa.
The KUNDALINI power in micro level is called MAYA in macro level. The ancient sages have found out that KUNDALINI power is the root cause of creation , existence and destruction. KUNDALINI power exists in animated and inanimated things.
Each living cell consists of life force in the form of genes. This gene exists in chromosome. The genes containing life force are the carriers of hereditary qualities. The gene contains very important DNA molecule. If we can balance the six acids of DNA we can get rid of old age & diseases. Each and ever human is having 99.9% similar genes. The remaining .01% of genes makes the difference amongst the humans with different colour, quality & nature.
We need to spend nearly 40 thousands of proteins daily for our energy needs. With the regular practice of Kriyayoga we can increase these proteins and can remove ageing and diseases. The lack of coordination betweens organs like lever, heart and kidneys etc and Live cells are the main reason for ageing and diseases. Genes only can make the sick cells healthy. The required amount of push up can be given to genes with KriyaYoga thus leading to the coordination betweens organs like lever, heart and kidneys etc.
Every live cell is the replica of human being. Live cell contains GENE, GENE contains CHROZOME, CHROZOME contains DNA. DNA molecule is very important constituent part of Live cell. Every live cell can produce protein, GENE and ENZYMES. GENE shall tell herediray qualities. HARMONES will provide the necessary fillip to these Genes and causes healthiness. Only 100 out of thousands of genes that cause ill health were so far found out. It may take number of years to find out the rest of the disease causing Genes. With chakra dhyana , beejakshara dhyana in the chakraas i.e., chanting of root word in the respective plexus, kriya yoga etc., one can produce the required amount of 40-50 thousands of proteins for the health of the body, and hence can live with peace and tranquility with out any ill health. By over indulging in senses man can not drink or experience the sweetness inherent in the living cell.
Every living cell contain six acids viz., Deoxy adenylic, guanylic, Ribosy, & citedylic acids, thymidylic & phosphoric acids and also sweetness. The meditator or the aspiring Yogi while doing OMmeditation and then settles in Sahasrara chakra in the top of the head with KHECHARI MUDRA ( a particular Yogic posture) can definitely experience this sweetness. This sweetness enters through idea body to subtle and then to physical body.
Ida naadi is river Ganga, Pingala naadi is river Yamuna and Sushumna is river Saraswati. These three subtle naadis merge at Kootastha or AAgna + chakra. This is called confluence of three rivers i.e., Ganga, Yamuna & Saraswati. The life force or Jeewaatma in the Kootastha reaches Sahasraara through only Sushumna. This is called samaadhi state. The rest of the nadis i.e., Ida and Pingala remain at Kootastha only.
If you inhale(poorakam) and fill the kootastha (the place between eye brows) with life force fully and then exhale (rechakam) life force fully out of Moolaadhara chakra then there will be generation of electro magnetic force. Surrendering Senses to GOD is called or prayer. Surrendering Ida, pingala & sushumna and 5 life forces is called sacred water ablutions (Abhishekamu) to GOD, Surrendering antahkarana (Mind) is called lighting candle before GOD Surrendering all the six plexuses is called offering flowers to GOD, surrendering quality of fire in Manipura Chakra is called burning incense stick before GOD, surrendering all your desires is called offering food (naiwedyamu) to GOD. This is called Eeswara pranidhaanamu or complete surrender.
The meditation in plexus(chakraas) removes cruelty, revengeful attitude & stealing quality in Mooladhara chakra, doubtfulness in Swadhisthaana, hatred and one upmanship in Manipura, passionate mind & I am superior to everybody type of quality in Anaahata, greediness & chatter box quality in Visuddha and pride& hastiness in aagna chakraas.
King Janaka & gargi were the disciples of Sage yaagnyawalka. Sage yaagnyawalka.was worshipper of SUN GOD. Due to this he could give Sukla Yajur vedam ( one of the ancient Vedas) to the humanity. Kaatyani & Mitreyi were the wives of Sage yaagnyawalka. He wanted to distribute all his property to his two wives. Mitreyi understands that physical wealth does not provide immortality. The conversation between Sage yaagnyawalka and Mitreyi is culminated into a beautiful Upanishad called Brihadaaranyaka Upanishad.
Devoid of attachment and revenge lead to beatitude. Then one will be happy.
Satyena labhyaha tapasaahi eshaa aatma
samyak gnaaneana brahmacharyena nityam
antah sareere jyotirmayohi subhroyam
pasyanti yatah ksheenadoshaaha
Follow truth, do penance, maintain celibacy(to make journey in Brahma the father or fix the mind in sahasraara chakra). Then all your faults (doshaas) will be eradicated. Then God the father will appear in divine light form. Merge in that light.
Yogaha karma sukausalam 2--- 50
Do your karma (Duty) without expecting the results. That is called real Yoga.
Yogastaha kuru karmaani 2----48
Do your duties as though you are doing Yoga.
Yogobhawati dukhaha 6-----17
Meditation is funeral to all sorrows.
Yogaha chitta wriddhi nirodhaha
All unwanted thoughts will be nullified by doing Yoga.
1) YAMA—non-violence, truth, non stealing, celibacy, not expecting anything from others,
2) NIYAMA—cleanliness of body &mind, contentment, Readingreligious books, total
surrender to God,
3) AASANA---- firm sitting posture,
4) PRAANAAYAAMA--- control over breath,
5) PRATYAAHAARA--=withdrawal of business of senses,
6) DHAARANA--- concentration on one thing,
7) DHYAANA---- incessant concentration on GOD only,
8) SAMADHI--- giving up all forms of GOD, merging with GOD the FATHER.
DHARANA, DHYAANA& SAMADHI together are called SAMYAMA.
MEDITATION will start with seed and ultimately it becomes seed less. That means you first meditate on God, merge with Him and become God yourself. Suppose there is a fire accident in Delhi. Fire is having same burning quality everywhere. But nothing happened here as there is no fire accident in Hyderabad. Likewise my Sadguru Sri Yoganada Swami is burning with God so he has become an illuminated sage. That fire is not within me I am an ordinary mortal. Na tasya rogo na zaraa na mrityu praaptasya yogaagnimayam sareeram. Shedding mortality, ageing and disease, the person doing meditation shall be burning with Yoga fire. Beatitude is obtained by people who do meditation and turn his mind inwards not outwards.
Bahoonaam janmanaamamte gnaanawaan maam prapadyamte
Wasu dewa sarwamiti sa mahatma sudurlabhaha
One gains wisdom after several births. Then that man of wisdom realizes that everything is GOD only. Then he gets me. Such persons are rare.
Manohi dwividham proktam suddham asuddhamewacha asuddham kaamasankalpam suddham kaamaviwarjitam mana eva manushyaanaam bandha moksha kaaranam.
Mind is of two types fickle and stable. Stable mind is desireless and hence happy. fickle mind causes misery and unhappiness. That is why mind is the root cause of misery and liberty.
GLANDS------ PLEXUSES (CHAKRAAS)
Glands are two types (1) Exocrine glands associated with digestive system (2) Duct less Endocrine glands. These glands produces hormones which work on organs like kidneys, heart etc., to make these organs to do the required work for us and to keep the body healthy.
The adrenal gland look like cap on each kidney. This adrenal Gland is of two parts. The outer Cortex of adrenal gland secrets two types of hormones viz., Cortisol for regulating the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats & proteins and Aldosterone for maintenance of blood volume & sodium levels. The inner medulla of adrenal gland secrets adrenaline hormone for withstanding the physical & mental stress, pain. Meditation on Swaadhisthaana chakra helps us to maintain good health so that there will not be kidney stones, frequent urination. Pancreas releases two harmones (1) Insulin hormone for maintaining blood glucose levels failing which leads to Diabetes Mellitus. (2) Glucagon hormone is secreted when glucose levels are low to act on liver. The meditation on Manipura chakra helps to maintain these hormones thereby helping us to be healthy.
The great sentences
Pragnaanam Brahma----- wisdom is Brahma is a great sentence from Yaitareeya Upanishad of Rigveda. Sacrifices performed as per Rigveda, a Brahmin called Hota reads the chantings called Riks.
Aham Brahmaasmi ----- I am the Brahma. is a great sentence from Brihadaaranyhaka Upanishad of Yajurveda. Sacrifices performed as per Yajurveda, a Brahmin called Adharva reads the chantings .
Aandharatwam Andhrabhaashaascha Andhradesah swajanmabhooh tatraapi yajushissaakhaana ipyasya tapasah falaha.

3) ARANYAKAAS & 4) UPANISHAD
1) SAMHITA--- It is like a tree. This part contains chantings.
2) BRAAHMANAAS ------- It is like a flower. Yagnam or Sacrifice with chantings.
3) ARANYAKAAS------It is like a fruit. Cross the barrier between PARA and APARA.

In Vajapeya yagna 23 animals are sacrificed. Apart from these there will be one more Yagna called ASWAMEDHA in which 100 horses are to be sacrificed. This yagna is exclusively meant for Kshatriyaas, a warrior class. In fact sacrifice means one has to shed all the unwanted negative things of the senses that are obstructing him to have reunion with God the Father.

PRINCIPLES OF MAHESWARA
riluk, e oy, I voch, hayawarat, lan, nyamannanam, yabhagna, ghadadhash, jabagadadhas, khaphachathadhav Ayiun, , kapay, were the initial sounds or vibrations that comes out of OM. These are root cause of VOWELS & CONSONENTS.
In Vedas and the Poetry that followed, different types of principles of Grammar called Chandas is used. Each Sloka or verse consists of four stanzas. Each stanza will have eight alphabets or letters. Each letter may be a vowel or a letter formed due to the conjunction of a vowel and consonant. The sloka so formed with this sort of metering is called anushthubh chandas. For example the well known “”Suklaambharadharam vishnum “” of eight letter metering Sloka is of anushthubh chandas. Every Mantra or chanting will have a reigning deity, one typical procedure as illustrated above, and the sage related to that Mantra who got it during his meditation. While chanting a Mantra we must keep our hands on our head thinking that the feet of the sage who has given that Mantra is on our head and hence we are respecting him by touching his feet.
Mantras of Veda have different types of meters of 9, 11,& 12 letters chandas or grammar. They are Gaayatri, usnik, anushtubh, brihati, pankti, trishtubh, jagati .
In Vedic times the first poetic marvel was the epic RAMAAYANA written by Sage Waalmeeki. The first Sloka was----maanishaadaprathishtham twam agamaha saaswateesamaha. Yat krauncham mithnaadekam awadhih kaamamohitam.
This verse of vaalmeeki Ramaayana is having two meanings. (1) Oh! Hunter, you have killed that krauncha bird which was happily pecking with his female bird. Live in restlessness. (2) Oh! Rama, The couple viz., Ravana and Mandodari were endowed with lust & ignorance. You have killed Ravana. With this killing you will earn eternal fame. Here the male bird is Ravana, the demon, and Mandodari is female bird. The hunter is Rama who is the Avatara of Lord Sri Mahavishnu.
SACRIFICES MENTIONED IN GITA --- RELEVANCE TO YOGA
Yadruchhaa laabha santhushto ------- 4-------22
One who is contented with what he gets, beyond the misery& happiness, not endowed with jealousy & hatred, equipoise whether he gets fruits of his work or not, cannot be bound by Karma even if he does.
Brahmaarpanam Brahmahavi Brahmaagnow Brahmanaahutam Brahmaiwa Tena gantawyam brahmakarmasamadhinaa-------------------- 4---24
Everything is Spirit or Brahman only. The offerings, process of offerings, who does offerings, the thing that was put into the fire of spirit. Here offerings means business of senses, offerer is sadhaka the meditator, and lastly the thing that is offered is life force. Why because the thing that is a part of Spirit i.e., Aatman has to merge with Paramaatma or Parabrahma or simply Brahman. As such the person who is meditating with Pranaayaama process(es) has to merge with Brahman only. That is the ultimate goal.
Daivamevaapareyagnam yoginaha parytupaasate
Some persons (sadhaka or devotee) are worshipping the deities. That means they are meditating on the Chakras. Some sadhakaas with courage are directly meditating on Sahasraara chakra to get merged with Brahman. In day to day life also, some take the risk of starting a big business withot any experience whatsoever or meets a person of higher authority without any fear.
Srotraadeeneendriyaanyanye samyamaagnishu juhwati sabdaadeenwishayaananya indriyaagnishu juhwati. ------------------------------------- 4-------26
Certain devotees offer the powers of hearing, smelling, tasting, touch & seeing as oblations in the respective organ itself. Here the devotee does not misuse any sense. This is called Second Kriya in YSS/SRF.
Sarwaaneendreiya karmaanipraannakarmaani chaapare aatmasamyamayogaagnow juhwati gnaanadeepite. -------------------------------4------27
Certain devotees withdraw the powers of hearing, smelling, tasting, touch & seeing and offer as oblations in the fire of inner control.
This is called PRATYAAHAARA technique of ashtaanga Yoga. Paramahansa Yogananda calls this technique as switching of sense telephones. i.e., fire of inner control.
Swaadhyaayagnaanayagnaascha yatayahsamsita wrataah. --------------------- 4-----28
Some devotees offer their wealth for charities so as to turn their mind from worldly matters towards Brahman, some go further and meditate on Brahman in sahasraara following Astaangayoga, some are meditating on “”who am I”.
Apaane juhwati praanam praanepaanam tathaapare
Some devotees are obstructing the paths of incoming breath i.e., Praana, and outgoing breath i.e., apaana. By doing this they are putting Praana into Apaana and Apaana into Praana. This is nothing but LIFE CONTROL TECHNIQUE OF KRIYA YOGA. It is a wonderful Pranayama Technique of sending Praana into the Agna + chakra (kootastha) and then to Sahasrara and from there the apaana to Moolaadhaara chakra through a subtle naadi of Spinal chord called Sushumna. Sadguru Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda says by doing Kriya Yoga Pranayama, the bodily decay associated with apana stops. The devotee realizes the illusion of growth and decay of the body as flesh but of lifetrons. Kriya Yoga is not breath control but life force control.
Apare niyataahaaraaha praanaan praaneshu juhwati
Sarvepyaete yagnaavido yagnakshapita kalmashaaha. 4-----30
Some devotees are consuming limited food. They are submitting life force into life force itself. That means the businesses of organs of action (karmendriyas) i.e., assimilation, metabolism etc and the businesses of organs of senses like hearing power, smelling power etc., are controlled by certain devotees. With this the mind is controlled. There by unsteady life force becomes steady. Mind can be controlled in two ways, one through the path of Gnana or second through the path of dhyana (meditation). With the steady mind and steady Prana the Atma will get united with Brahman. One can learn this technique through YSS lessons as taught by the Great Guru Sri Sri Paraamahansa Yogananda.
Yagnasishtaamrita bhjoyaanti brahma sanaatanam
Naayam lokostyayagnasya kutonyaha kurusattama
Those who perform any one of the above mentioned spiritual fire ceremonies shall definitely be benefited by reuniting with Spirit from where they came. The person who does not perform even a spiritual fire ceremony cannot be happy even on the earth, so how can he experience the beatitude or eternal happiness in Spirit?
Evam bahuvidhaa yagnaawitataa brahmano mukhe
Karmajaan widdhi taan sarwaanewam gnaatwaa wimokshase. 4-----32
All these spiritual fire sacrifices are expatiated in VEDAS. You cannot learn from books. Know them from the experienced. Without doing Karma you cannot get wisdom. One should learn it from Sadguru like Sri Paramahansa Yogananda. No need of sacrificing innocent animals.
Sreyan drawyamayaadyagnaa gnaanayagnaaha parantapa sarwam karmaakhilam partha gnaane parisamaapyate. 4-------33
All karma ultimately ends with gnaana i.e., wisdom. The wisdom gained by doing spiritual fire ceremonies through praanaayaama techniques are far superior and eternal compared to material sacrifices. After the ultimate goal is the reunion of Atman and Paramaatmman. All other actions are for removing hunger of this physical body only.
One cannot understand 7th table without understanding the first six tables in numerical mathematics. Similarly allegorically one should go through these practices. Then only one can do the superior spiritual fire techniques of Pranayama. We are able to explain to our children so many things of Mathematics& other subjects because of the past study experience of those respective subjects. That is why the present depends on the past and the future depends on the present.
Tadwiddhi pranipaatena pariprasnena sewayaa
Upadekshyantitegnaanam gnaaninaha tatwa darsinaha. 4--------34
That eternal wisdom one should gain it from a sadguru by total surrendering of service and reverence to Him. That Sadguru definitely imparts that Brahma vidya (wisdom of truth) to you. But we must not pester him with our inquisitions when He is doing meditation.
Apichedasi paapebhyaha sarvebhyaha papa krittamaha sarwam gnaanaplavenaina wrijinam samtarishyati. 4----36
Even though we have committed gravest blunders in the past if we start now doing sadhana or spiritual fire techniques of pranayama, we can be saved from further falling down. The reunion of Atman with Brahman is possible even if you are a novice and starts sadhana now.
Pasyan srinvan sprisan jighran asnan gachhan swapan swasan pralapan visrujan grihnan unmishan
Even if he is seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, walking, grasping, breathing, talking, the meditating yogi perceives that the senses are doing their respective roles and he is only witnessing. . he will not feel any responsibility.
Tapaswibhyodhiko yogee gnaanibhyopi matodhi kaha karmibhyaschaadhiko yogi tasmaat yogee bhawaarjuna. 6------46
Yogi is superior to the body disciplining ascetics, pundits who are well versed with religious books or scriptures, persons who think that work is worship or persons who do the vedic rituals. After graduating from electrical engineering , if a person cannot fix a fuse cartridge then what is the utility of that studies. Like wise after doing all the above things if those works/rituals are not helpful to him to unite with Brahman they are all futile. That is why Yogi who does spiritual fire techniques of Pranayama is definitely superior to all.
Kurvanneveha karmani jijee e viset satam samaha evam twayi naanyadhetaha astinakarma lipyatenare
Do good works for the benefit of society. Ask for 100 years of life to do good works. If you do
desireless karma then you will get atma-paramatma wisdom.
Pratyakshah gurawastutyaaha parokshe mitra baandahawaaha kaaryaante daasa bhrityaascha na swaputraha kadaachana
You can praise Sadguru in front of him, friends & relatives in their absence, servants after finishing their work, but never praise the offspring.
Vibration is the cause of the sound. So vibration is the cause and sound is the effect. OM is the sound without any vibration. This OM travels or flows through VOID or VACCUM or ANTARIKSHA. This Antariksha is subtler than space. This is called VYOMAM. Physical (sthoola antahkarana) mind cannot perceive this Vyomam. For this Subtle Antahkarana (mind) or infinited mind is required. Normal Sound is ultimately absorbed into this Vyomam i.e., Soundless Sound OM. The sages found out that this Vyomam is the root cause of all Sounds. That means all sounds emanate from this Vyomam. With indepth concentration one can hear the sounds of the past and future sounds. More the wave length less the vibration or frequency and also less the wave travels, less the wave length more the vibration or frequency and also more the wave travels. The Anaahata sound that emanates from Anahata chakra is vibrationless OM. This OM SOUND is timeless, spaceless and travels infinite space forever nand forever eternally. This OM can produce and destroy any number of universes. The beginning of Sound (Sabdam) is called SPHOTAM. Every idea comes out of this Sphotam only. The creation comes out of Sphotam. bindu (Point) is the individual wave of infinite ocean.
Avarana means hiding power, vikshepana means expanding power. Baalyam (Infancy) means undeveloped sudra state. Yavvanam (Youth) means developing waisyaa state. Kaumaram (middle age) means capable of ruling kshatriya state. Vaardhakyam (Old age) means wisdom experienced of Brahman state. With the gained wisdom one understands the emptiness of this physical world and hence tries for reunion of Atman with Brahman.
Tapaha swadhyaayeswara pranidhaanaani kriyayogaha. Patanjali
While worshipping the GOD with folded hands Patanjali was born to his father. That is the Sanskrit meaning of Patanjali. The combination of Severe Penance, reading& understanding of scriptures, and total surrender to GOD is called Kriyayoga. Patanjali was born to his parents like this. Surrendering all the results of Karma to God is called Eeswara pranidhaanam. Patanjali is a replica of reunion of Atman and Brahman. Physical exercises, self control and meditating on OM are the constituents of Kriya yoga. Kriyayoga is a metaphysical procedure. The blood is decarbonized and will invigorate with life force. The living cells in the head are having positive polarity. The cells in the remaining body are having negative polarity. The blood invigorated with life force shall reduce the cell decay. The heart gets relief. Stopping the breath is given much importance in Rajayoga. . in KRIYAYOGA, life force is controlled, spinal cord is magnetized, life force is directed to Sahasraara chakra on the top centre of the head, so that the nerves in the head get relief and ability. Breath is having energy only but not awareness. Life force is having both energy and awareness.
Tasya waachakaha pranawaha
Patanjali yoga sutras 1----27
The OMsound that is heard in meditation is the name of GOD.
Tasmin sati swaasa praswaasayoho gatiwichhedaha praanaayaamaha.
Patanjali yoga sutras 2---49
After mastering the sitting posture in meditation, the control over breath is mastered. This mastery leads to liberation as the breath is the only cord or link between Brahman and this inert body.
The meditating Yogi hears OM sound during his meditation. This will lead to the contact of illuminated divine fields. Yogi experiences in SAVIKALPA SAMADHI the union of his consciousness is merging with universal consciousness, life force withdrawal and the body is stiffened as dead. In NIRVIKALPA SAMADHI state Yogi not only experiences the above, but also cherishes these experiences or does not lose these experiences while doing his worldly duties. Kriya yoga hastened the development of man.
There is one Raasee on either side of each chakra (Plexus) from Mooladhara in the bottom to Agna + chakra in Kootastham( the place between two eye brows). With mooladhara having 2 Rasees, swadhishtaana (2), manipura (2), anaahata (2), visuddha(2), Agna (2 rasees), it comes to total of 12 rasees. The displacement of planet Sun in each month from one Rasi to another Rasi of 12 rasees is called sankramanam. So there are 12 displacements for Sun which comes to one year. Out of these two sankramanams are very important. They are; when Sun enters Makara raasi it is Makara Sankranti, this is called northern solstice or UTTARAYANAM, and when Sun enters Karkata raasi it is karkataka Sankranti, this is called southern solstice or DAKHINAYANAM. Kriyayogi shall direct his life force from Mooladhara chakra to Agna chakra in kootastha, and from Agna chakra in kootastha to Mooladhara chakra at the bottom of spinal cord. By doing this he will be seeing the Atman (Sun) in all these six chakraas six times while directing his life force from Mooladhara chakra to Agna chakra in kootastha, and six times again while directing his life force from Agna chakra in kootastha to Mooladhara chakra at the bottom of spinal cord. This amounts to seeing the Atman (Sun) 12 times each time he does one KRIYA. So the Kriya yogi experiences his One year past Karma in one KRIYA in a matter of say 45 seconds. That is why Kriya Yoga is aeroplane way of reaching GOD.
10 lakhs years of healthy life is required to experience our past karma. It is highly impossible as no one can live more than 100 years that too healthy life. As we cover long distance within a matter of few hours by aircraft which is otherwise may take years, likewise Kriya Yoga is. In one life time itself kriya yogi can experience 10 lakhs years of development. Ordinarily in 6,12,18,24,30,36,42 & 48 years Kriya yogi can achieve wonderful development.
Kriyayogi shall take the experiences of his sadhana alongwith him to his next incarnation. The life of Kriyayogi is not be influenced by his karma of his past births. His life will be completely guided by his Atman. Kriya Yoga is to be practiced with controlled food habits and in complete solitude. Han sau is also Yoga procedure which can be done either before or after the meals, in complete solitude, or in group and even while traveling when you are not the driver. Kriya Yoga consists of:----
1) Hatha Yoga (energisation exercises, (2) Layayoga ( Han sau & OM techniques) (3) Karmayoga (Service), (4) Mantrayoga (chanting appropriate Root word or Beejaakshar in each Chakra) & (5) Rajayoga ( pranayama techniques)…
The space between eye brows is called kootastha or Agnaa+. This Kootastha is +ve pole. Mooladhara Chakra is –ve pole. When the life force is rotated from Mooladhara Chakrai.e., –ve pole to Kootastha i.e., +ve pole, and again from Kootastha to Mooladhara, the spinal cord is energized. Then all the currents from Mooladhara and Visuddha chakra in the throat are directed to Sahasraara. Then the Yogi shall get unparalleled bliss. If Certain appropriate Mudraa or posture made with hand (given in the chart) in the relative Chakra is also to be done with this sadhana. Then the spinal chord is further energized. Life force is having both awareness and energy. Oxygen is having only energy. Kriyayoaga is funeral to all sorrows, physical, mental & spiritual. Both body and mind will come under the control of Kriyayogi. This control of body and mind leads to kundalini awakening. Then the yogi obtains pure consciousness state. Three things are responsible for our uncontrolled behaviour. They are (1) Mind, (2) Breath and (3) Desire. If these three are controlled then we can achieve pure consciousness state.
The left side of spinal cord exists subtle Ida naadi, right side exists subtle pingala naadi and in the middle of subtle spinal exists sushumna naadi. Ida takes care of mental business, pingala takes care of physical business and sushumna naadi coordinates both mental and physical problems. Chakraas are something like junction boxes. Unsteady breath causes unsteady mind. Pranayama is the only way to have steady mind. Mind forms from the age of eight years. Till then the boy/girl will lead the life merrily and happily due to the guidance of soul. That is the region we say children are the Gods.

Sankara vijayam 15---21---14
There was a religion called Kapalika matam. The followers of this religion is called Kaapaalikaas. Kaapalikaas had a leader called Krakacha. As per his dictum the kaapalikaas wear blooded skulls as a garland around their neck. They have to worship their deity with liquor. Otherwise their deity Kaalabhairawa with his consort Parwati will not be happy and hence will not appear before them. They believe only in merrymaking. Drinking and sex with or promiscuity with whom so ever they like irrespective of whatsoever may be the relationship are quite common for them and it is not a sin. Enjoy the life and worship Kalaabhairawa. At that time period, Sri Adi Sankaraachaarya, the great saint, was visiting Rameshwaram temple situated in the South India. Sri Adi Sankaraachaarya was the founder of Adwaita siddhaanta. This siddhaanta says that except God nothing else exists. God only is seems to be appearing in different forms. God is only reality, rest everything is nothing but delusion.
He was followed by his disciples like sri Padmapaada, hastaamalaka, samitpaani, chidwilaasa, gnaanakanda, wishnugupta, suddhakeerti, bhaanumareechi, krishnadarsana, buddhivriddhi, virinchipaada, suddhaananta and Anandagiri etc. they were all traveling under the protective cover of a king called Sudhanva and his soldiers. King Sudhanva killed several followers of Krakacha who were torturing the followers of Sri Adi Sankaraachaarya. Angered by this Krakacha wanted to kill the followers of Sri Adi Sankaraachaarya with an axe.

Sankara vijayam 15—21—21
Seeing his followers are running hither and thither with fear, to save his fleeing followers, Aadi Sankaraachaarya killed those kaapalikaas wearing a Trisoola. Trisoola is a metalled weapon with three sharp iron edges. Even a sage can follow violence and kill evil and cruel persons when it is needed to protect dharma. Then the deity Kalabhairava appeared before Aadi Sankaraachaarya and killed that Krakacha, the leader of Kapaalikaas.

Sankara vijayam 15—21—21
Chaarvaakaas believe that the body that can be seen with naked eye only exists and nothing else beyond that exists. They don’t believe in subtle body, idea body and soul. The body only is Atma. Jeeva is not having separate existence except body and senses. To say that the invisible soul is truth and all else is delusion is folly. After death there is no rebirth. The decay of body is liberation and truth. Heaven, hell, other worlds, reincarnation, the dead people will live happily in paraloka or other worlds, to do shraaddha karmas ( certain religious formalities done while burying or burning the dead body) for appeasing Gods in the other world(s), all these are bunkum or senseless talk. Misery and happiness are confined to living beings only. Charvaakaas are the abusers of Vedaas(Hindu classics). Consciousness exists only due to the combination of earth, water, fire and air. When the combination of earth, water, fire and air occurs the jeeva ( praana or Consciousness) automatically comes into this physical body. After death this combination is disturbed and hence as there is no place to live, jeeva goes out. When there is a pot there exists a space in the pot. When the pot is broken the space in that pot goes nowhere. Likewise as there is no body to live the Jeeva/ praana or Consciousness does not go to the other world. It remains there only. So Jeeva and body are one and the same thing is theory of Charwaakaas. Hindus perform so many rituals immediately after the death of a person for 12 to 13 days and also every year on the day that person died. Even some persons go to holy places like Gaya, Brahmakapalam and Varanasi etc. These rituals are called Shraaddha karmas. During those rituals the Hindus take ablutions several times either on the banks of rivers Ganges, Godavari, Yamuna or Krishna etc or in their own homes. This is all humbak as per Charwaakaas.
Jeevaatmanaa sthitasyoti gnaanamaathrena sarvadaa
Muktatwaat tasya dehasya paataattu samanantaram
Jinadeva exists in the hearts of all living beings. Jinadeva is the embodiment of wisdom. As such he is liberated. By several ablutions this corrupted body cannot be cleansed. After the decay of the body, the soul gets purified.
There are two types of jains. They are jains and arhataas. These two types of jains are called maadhyamikaas. Those who are all well versed and conversant with their religion aare called Arhataas. Saptabhangi is the famous philosophy of Arhataas of Jain religion. There are seven important parts in this Saptabhangi. If one knows the knowledge of this SAPTABHANGI then he can be liberated.
As per this religion the universe or Jagat, living beings, the karma of living beings and bondages are eternal and hence had no beginning and ending.
1) Syadastikam---- thing exists concept.
2) Syannastikam---- thing does not exist concept.
3) Syadastinaasticam---- thing exists and does
not exist concept.
4) Syadavaktavya------cannot say thing exists
5) Syadastichaavakt6avyaha--- thing exists but can
not say thing exists concept.
6) Syaannasticha avyktavyaha----- thing does not exist but cannot say it does not exists concept.
7) Syadasticha naasticha avaktavyaha----- we can not say whether thing exists or does not exist concept.
Every thing can be determined as nitya saptabhangi or anitya saptabhangi as per the above saptabhangi knowledge.
The matter had infinite qualities and same is with saptabhangi..
This is known as Syadwaadam or Saptabhangi justice.
Consciousness and unconsciousness are the two things agreed by Jains. The knowledge of these two things is real wisdom. One should grasp the things that are desired and the rest undesired things are to be given up. Except Jina nothing else exists. There is no eternal God. Sarvagna, veetaraaga, arhan, kewali, teerthamkrita and Jina are the six of their deities. Both Buddhists and Jains accept this Syadwaadam or Saptabhangi justice. The practically invisible God is not acceptable to both Buddhists and Jains.
The following is the explanatory meaning regarding the seven things mentioned Saptabhangi mentioned earlier.
1) Jeevam—guide, embodiment of wisdom & conscious thing.
2) Ajeevam---inert thing.
Astikaayams are formed in relation to this Jeeva & Ajeeva. These Astikaayams are of five types. They are a) Jeevaastikaayam, b) Pudgalaastikaayam, c) Dharmaastikaayam,
d) Adharmaastikaayam & e) Aakaastikaayam.
Again this (a) Jeevaastikaayam is of three types. They are Baddha, Mukta aand Nityasiddha. These three are of three different levels. Nityasiddha is called Aarhan. He is not having binding and liberation. Mukta gets liberation due to sadhana. Baddha is always binding.
b) Pudgalaastikaayam--- earth, water, fire, air, body and consciousness are called Pudgalaastikaayam. That means atoms responsible for creation.
c) Dharmaastikaayam---- Karma that gives us health, peace & tranquility and detach us from this worldly attachment and takes us to the higher levels of consciousness is called Dharmaastikaayam
d) Adharmaastikaayam----That sort of Karma which is not done according to Jain classics takes us to the lower levels of consciousness is called Adharmaastikaayam. Restlessness, ill health & misery are the results of this.
e) Aakaastikaayam---- This is of two types. i) Lokaakasam which lives in higher echelons of worlds., and ii) Alokaakasam which is beyond all worlds and is the place for liberated beings.
The things which were explained above belong to Jeevqa & Ajeeva Aastikaayams.
This the third part of Saptabhangi knowledge. The knowledge gained with the help of senses that touches self illumination is called Aasravam.
Withdrawal from the senses and the knowledge so gained for enlightenment.
This Nirjaram is got due to the traits of past birth call4ed sanskaraas and Neutral (Rajo guna) quality. One wanted to experience good or bad karma because of Nirjaram. One gets relieved of Karma of past births after experiencing it. So Nirjaram removes the results of good and bad Karma.
6) Bandham--- This the sixth part of Saptabhangi knowledge. The classics of Jaina are called Aarhata Darsanaas. They say that the Karma is of two types. They are Ghaatika karma and Aghaatika Karma. Again Ghaatika karma is of Four types and Aghaatika Karma is of four types. This tantamount to Eight type of Karma.
a) Ghaatika karma -----
i) Gnaanaavaraneeya---One will get the thing (salvation) only by wisdom.
ii) Darsanaavaraneeyam---Only reading the Jaina scriptures one will attain salvation.
iii) Mohaneeyam---- Not believing the advice of Guru.
iv) Antaraaya--- The knowledge that destroy us.
The above four are called obstructions of wisdom.
b) Agaatika Karma-----
i) Vedaneeyam--- The body illuminating with Satwaguna i.e., Positive qualities.
ii) Naamikamu--- To believe firmly that I am an embodiment of Positive qualities. I am like a Zygote in the womb of a mother which is the beginning of the formation as an infant. A zygote will not have any good or bad qualities.
iii) Gotrikam—This cannot be described. This is the state earlier to Zygote. This gives eligibility to be a disciple of JINADESIKENDRA.
iv) aayushkam--- Embodiment of Sperm & ova or the state that transforms into Body.
The above four are not the obstructions of wisdom or knowledge or gnaana.
7) Moksha---- This the last seventh part of Saptabhangi knowledge. This state is beyond Dharma and Adharma, beyond existence and non existence and beyond logic called salvation.
This is the saptabhangi knowledge. With this knowledge one will get eternal peace and happiness.
As per the magnitude of the physical body, Jeeva’s existence will be bigger in size in the elephant and smaller in the ant. The parts are forming according to the size and magnitude of the body. Jeeva or soul depends on these organs. As such the size of the Jeeva also will be of bigger size. Hence the organs and the Jeeva or soul both are transforming eternally. Apart from soul nothing else exists. There is no such thing called EESWARA or GOD the father. In this respect both Jains and Buddhists accepts or agrees this nihilism. This Jagat/Universe and soul both are eternal. They have no beginning and end.
Maadhyamikaas believes the knowledge of elements but they will not accept their permanence. They say that the elements are temporary.
Yogaachaara agrees the configuration and science of intellect. They say that though things appear to exist due to intellect but in reality they do not exist at all.
Sautraantika says that the existence of elements or things are real internally only but outwardly they are not real at all. What they mean to say is the things that appears physically are untrue. What the thing contains internally is true.
Vaibhaashika believes the vacuum as reality. The destruction of attachment is salvation. This is again agreed upon by all the four i.e., Maadhyamikaas, Yogaachaaras, Sautraantikas and Vaibhaashikas.
Jains and Buddhists both will agree that soul is eternal. They won’t accept EESWARA. This amounts to nihilism or nireeswaravada. Both will agree saptabhangi and swadwaada.
Adi Sankaracharya of South India was a great saint of all times. He was an embodiment of wisdom. He is revered as Avataar of Lord Siva. He propogated Adwaita Siddhanta. His famous dictum was ‘’ Brahma Satyam, jagat midhya’’. Except Brahman all else is delusion.
Jeevasya deham tritayam hi vidyate sthoolascha sookshmascha tathaiwa kaaranam
That is jeeva is having two other bodies called subtle and Idea apart from physical body. To think that Iam different from GOD is ignorance. Realization of ‘’ I and God are one and the same’’ is the real wisdom and liberation. Man cannot be liberated due to the decay of physical body only.
Kartaa bhoktaaham paranandaroopo manwaanaswaa bheeshta masyaasti yaawat taawat kreedanneshu deheshu paschaat deham tyaktwaa mukta ityukta aaha.
Iam the doer and enjoyer. Iam the parama ananda roopa. Iam the blissful person. So thinking man is getting liberated. Wisdom or aatmagnaan is one and steady. It cannot change irrespective of cold and heat, misery or happiness. Wisdom is nothing but truth only and truth is absolute.
Jeeva is not MAHAT or Atom. Jeewaastikadwyam and knowledge of Saptabhangi both cannot be tools for salvation. Both are existence and non existence forms and mutually oppose each other. Two different types of Dharma cannot be made applicable at a time to same thing that is Jeeva or soul. Even Jeeva is not permanent. Pure wisdom brings salvation.
God the father or Brahman is the creator of this Universe/Jagat. Universe/Jagat and Jeeva both are unreal. They are like a dream. Brahman is manifesting this Universe, making the existence of this Jagat and destructing this Universe. He is the G generator, O operator and D destructor. He himself is manifesting as JAGAT or Jeeva and playing.
Guna saamyam pradhaanam syaat mattatwaadikaaranam
Avyaktam vyaktabhaavamcha jagatyekam paraatparam
These three qualities i.e., satwa, rajas and tamas together are called PRADHANAM.. The combination of these three qualities lead to MAHAT and SHRISHTI or CREATION. This Pradhanam when it is unmanifested it is called AVYAKTAM or IDEAL and when it is manifested it is called VYAKTAM or Physical Universe. Mukti or liberation if one understands this knowledge.
Naa sabda meekshate (Brahma sutra)
Sound cannot see. The combination of three qualities is Pradhaanam. This combination is not sound less. It is having sound. So the Pradhanam which is not sound less cannot be cause of this creation. All other things are inert except Brahman. Brahman is only sentient. An insentient and inert Nature cannot be the cause of creation. Brahman is the cause of creation.
All the pancha bhootaas came into existence because of Brahman. Brahman is only eternal. The things get created or destroyed as per the wishes of GOD. The inert and insentient things cannot have this power.
Even Vedas are not eternal. ParaBrahma is only eternal.
Accept Karma that Mimamsa says but discard that very karma to get liberated. Truth is one and absolute. Paramatma is tangible as saguna and intangible as nirguna niraakaara Brahman.
He accepts all six pramanas viz.., pratyaksha, anumanaetc.
Nistraigunyobhava i.e., discard all the three qualities of satwa, rajas and tamo. Total surrender to God leads to salvation. God is omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient. Except God all else is insentient. God is the efficient cause (nimitta kaaranam) & material cause (dravya kaaranam). Maya (inherent of God) is instrumental cause(sadhana kaaranam).
Mimamsikaas hold Vedic Karma is only goal for everybody. Upanishats are called Vedanta. These Upanishats teach us about Parabrahma. Sri AdiSankaracharya holds the view that even Vedas are not eternal. ParaBrahma is only eternal. Till you attain the knowledge of liberation the Upanishats are eternal. All others are perishable.
For salvation, starving the body and unbearable and studious principles, are not required. Buddha has suggested eight fold path for truthful living. They are: (1) Samyak drishti----one should have the knowledge of misery, reason for misery, avoiding that memory, (2) samyak sankalpa----giving up pleasures of senses and revengefulness, not contemplating harm to others, right thinking, 3)Samyak waakku----- speaking of truth only,. 4) Samyak Karma------ rightful behaviour, nonviolence and non stealing, 5) Samyak Jeevanam---- moral living, 6)Samyak krishi----one should devoid of vice and have self control 7) Samyak smriti--- fully matured mind and 8)Samyak Samadhi---- Peace and tranquility.
Baahyaartha wadaas, yogacharees and maadhyamikaas are important amongst the followers of religion of Buddha.
Again this Baahyaartha wadaas are of two types. They are sautraantikaas and vaibhaashikaas.
Sautraantikaas belive in Anumaana pramaana i.e., indirect perception. What ever knowledge one wanted to grasp can be got only by this anumaana pramaana.
Vaibhaashikaas believe in pratyaksha pramaana i.e., direct perception. That means the one that is appearing before the naked eyes is only the truth. But both sautraantikaas and vaibhaashikaas have the same perception in regard to decay of the things.
Yogacharees are also of two types. They are Vignaanavadees and soonyawadees.
Vignaanavadees believe that wisdom (atmagnaan) is temporary and of different types.
Nature and Purusha are two different things. The knower of cause is Purusha. This Purusha is quality less and formless. He is witness only. If butter is kept nearer to heat, it melts even though the butter is not kept directly on the heater. Like wise Purusha is nearer to Nature. Nature is also called Maya. HE will work as a catalyst resulting in creation that comes out of nature. He does not do anything directly.
Soul and Purusha is one and the same thing. He is the cause of everything but does not do anything directly. Maya is the root cause of creation. The whole Universe is made of 24 elements or tatwaas. First and foremost thing is Maya herself. This is also called PRADHAANAM.
Next came MAHAT. Man/woman is having intellect. This is called Micro level intellect. Mahat is the intellect of Nature. This is Macro level intellect.
Next came EGO. This is of two types. i)the sentient Life force inherent with energy and awareness, intellect, five organs of senses, and five organs of action, ii)insentient five tanmatraas, five mahabhootaas. Eye, nose, ear, tounge and skin are the five sense organs. Man can know about external things with the help of thse sense organs.
Mouth, feet, hands, anus and phallus are the five action organs.
Hearing, touch, seeing power, tasting power, and smelling power are called Tanmatraas.
Ether, air, fire, water and earthy are Pancha Maha bhootaas.
So these 24 elements viz., Nature, mahat, ego, mind, five sense organs, five action organs, five tanmatraas, five pancha mahabhootaas , together constitute this Universe or individual Jeeva.
Saankhyam does not talk about Brahman. Brahman, Nature & Maya are all one and the same as per Hindu Vedanta. Satwa (positive), Rajas (neutral & Tamas (negative) are the three qualities. Both saankhya and Vedanta accepts these three qualities. These three qualities are responsible for the misery. Salvation can be obtained by shedding the above 24 elements. Nature is the material (dravya), efficient (nimitta) and instrumental (sadhana) causes. Satwa, rajas & tamas are the matter. The manifestation of these three qualities is mahat in macro level and buddhi(intellect) in micro level. Any object from Buddhi to stone is the permutations and combinations of these three qualities only. The difference is in physical, subtle and ideal. Cause is subtle and effect is physical. All ideas are collected and sent to the Intellect by mind. What is to be done is decided by the mahat in macro level and by buddhi(intellect) in micro level. Ego came out of this Mahat. Ideal and subtler things came latter. The combinations of these subtler particles lead to this external physical universe. PURUSHA is beyond this three qualities and Nature. PURUSHA is not Buddhi, mind, Tanmaatraas (powers of taste, sound, touch, seeing and smell) and physical, subtle and ideal bodies. Purusha is eternal. These Purushaas are infinite. Buddhi or macro mahat came first. Matter came latter. The combination of internal ideal forces is called mind. External forces and this mind combined to form this physical world or body.
Tam kaapila praahucha moolayonihi kim vaa swatantraachidadhishthitaawaa jagannidaanam wada sarvawitwaannochet pravesastawa durlabhasyaat.
Is Moola prakriti or Nature by itself independantly the root cause of creation or with the help of sentient Purusha ? Because Saamkhyaas belive that the Nature is not inert and also independent. Hence it is the root cause of this creation.
Swayam swatantraat trigunaatmikaasatee.
Nature comprises three qualities i.e., positive, neutral and negative. They combine in different proportions and hence the creation or Jagat is manifested. Nature means character. So generation (shrishti), operation/existence (sthiti), destruction (laya) depend on character.
Vidhaayasrushtwaavividhaanscha jeevaanaanaiswayam saakshivadesha poornaha
Brahman is the owner of this whole Universe. But he is manifesting universes with the five panchamahabhootaas (ether, air, fire, water and earth.).. At the time of creation these five are combined and at destruction they are separated. So with the combination of the subtle panchabhootaas creation occurs, and with their seperation deluge or pralayam occurs. So the combination and separation of these are the cause of creation and deluge.
Sat Karma means good works done for the betterment of the society and self. They are of two types. i) ishtam i.e., performing sacrifices, ii) poortam that is constructing water tanks, hospitals and schools etc.
Aswamedham: raashtram waa aswamedhaha
Ruling the kingdom and its subjects with justice and syllogism is Aswamedham but not sacrificing the mute animals to propitiate the deity or God.
Annam hi gauhu Satapatha 4-3-1-25

Keeping the Food and Senses clean is GOMEDHAM. Your senses will work according to the type of food you take. If you take saatwik food like milk and fruits the senses will be cool and peaceful. If you take Rajasic food like meat etc then you will be restless and prone to anger. If you take tamasic food then you will be proned to sleep and ignorance.
The funeral rites that are done after the death as per their religion is called NARAMEDHAM.
The particles of earth , water and fire combine together in the air and appears in blue colour.
America is situated exactly underneath India. Hence it is called Paataala loka. It appears that the characters mentioned in Mahabharat war have come from different countries to participate in Kurukshetra, the world war at that time. Ex: Babhruvahana from the patala loka is presently America. Salya might have come from present Iran and Bhagadatta from present China.
In Sanskrit there is a mention of word Mantri (Minister). From this Mantri two other words namely Mantram and Mantraangam are derived. The one who can think wisely is called Mantri. The thinking which can protect the mind is called mantra or mantram. The sphere of thinking is called mantrangam. Every thing is the result of thinking only. Medicines, weapons, yoga systems, reading, writing, poetry and several creative works came out due to thinking only. The weapons mentioned in the Mahabharata war like Agneeyaastra, vaarunaastra, naagapaasa and sammohanaasstra etc are the result of thinking only. Astra means weapon. Agneeyaastra means the one that emanates fire out of it, , vaarunaastra means the one that produces water out of it, Naaga paasa means the one that makes the senses immobile , and sammohanaasstra means the one that makes the opponents senseless. In Agneyaastra they fill the weapon with some combustible material of one or two types which when thrown against the enemy in the open air shall produce fire with oxygen in the air acting as catalyst for combustion. In varunaastra hydrogen and oxygen are packed in such a way that when thrown against the enemy in the open air shall produce water when combined. Naaga paasa is like a local anesthesia. That particular limb/organ/sense gets immobilized. Similarly sammohanaastra makes the opponent completely senseless for some assigned time period just like in major clinical operations in hospitals.
All great learned people, yogis like Patanjali etc, emperors like Sibi, Raajaas or kings like Harischandra, Janaka etc, saints like Vashista, viswaamitra etc., religions, education, came out of this great India. Several of these great people died during Mahabharata war some more than 5000 years ago.

There is a saying. Castor plant is a very small plant. Where there are no plants at all this castor plant is considered to be a big tree.
Kulakshaye pranasyanti kuladharmaassanatanaaha
Dharmenashte kulam krutsnam adharmobhi bhavatyuta. Bhagavat Geeta 1---40
Kulam means caste. These castes are formed according to the qualities. If the caste is destroyed then the qualities of those castes also get destroyed. Then the next casualty is Dharma. If Dharma is destroyed then the whole system gets destroyed.
This is what exactly has happened. After Mahabharata war ancient wisdom, Dharma and Veda vidya started getting destroyed. All elderly and wise people died. All young and skilled able bodied people died. The system has come under the control of children and widows. The progeny due to the wedlock of elderly widows and young lads etc without any guidance of experienced and learned adults resulted in anarchy. Several religions/philosophies like Charvakaas, kaapaalikaas etc came into effect. The one who is mighty could grab the chunk of land and started ruling the people whimsically without ant rhyme and rule. Those who oppose them will be ruthlessly killed. Lust, meat eating, incestuous animal pleasure etc have become common. Even they started interpolating and interpreting the scriptures as per their wishes. Animal sacrifices were introduced event hough there was no animal sacrifice in the scriptures to propitiate the God. For that they started giving the explanation that certain branches of Vedas were destroyed and in those destroyed branches these things like human sacrifices, animal sacrifices and meat eating were mentioned. If the leaves and branches of a mango tree is cut and when the leaves and branches come again then they will be of that mango only. God was described in the undestroyed parts of Veda branches available to us today as paramadayalu meaning He is the embodiment of magnanimity& Dharma. Then how a magnanimous God becomes cruel and ask for human & animal sacrifices and encourages meat eating in the branches of destroyed Veda.
Ekam sat vipraaha bahudaa vadanti.
God is only one but he is described as many. Whether you take water from Hardwar Ganges or from Allahabad Ganges, the water is of Gangesonly. You cannot call Gangesby different names. Similarly because of ignorance, only one God was/is being called by different names and people started quarrelling with each other saying that their God is superior to the God of the others. Even stone images were made and started confining the God to a particular boundary.
After Mahabharat war Bharat was divided into several provinces. The original Sanskrit language and Gurukul system of education was destroyed. Several local dialects came into existence.
Chaaturvarnyam mayaasrishtam gunakarma vibhaagasaha tasya kartaarapi maam viddhi akartaaram avyayam. Gita 4----13
Braaqhmana, kshyatriya, vaisya and Sudra are the four castes created by me as per their Gunaas( qualities) and not as per their births.
Instead of the dictum of Dharma people started following Adharma. The caste is recognized as per their parents instead of dexterity. In ancient times caste is like a designation such as Major, Brigadier etc. The institution of Kings became hereditary. The king should be brave, dutiful and truthful. Because of this hereditary system of following the biological caste system, weak kings who are unable to protect Dharma and give able leadership came into existence. This resulted in frequent quarrels amongst the kings resulting in further destruction of India.

Chaturdasa Vidyas (14 branches of learning)
There are 14 branches of learning. They are:
(1) four Vedas viz., Rigveda, Yajurveda, Samaveda & Atharvanaveda.,
(2) Sadangas or Six Angas viz., Siksha (phonetics), vyakarana (grammar), Nirukta (lexicon, etymology), Kalpa (manual of rituals), Chandas (prosody), Jyotisa (astronomy-astrology). They say that Siksha (phonetics) is like a nose of Veda, Vyakarana (grammar) is mouth of Veda, Nirukta (lexicon, etymology) is like ears of Veda, Kalpa (manual of rituals) is like hands of Veda, Chandas (prosody) is like feet of Veda, Jyotisa (astronomy-astrology)is like eyes of Veda.
3) Four upaangaas. They are helpers (auxiliary ) to a subject. They are Mimamsa, Nyaya, puranaas & Dharma Sastra.
Each syllable of a mantra is to be pronounced in a specific measure, not less and not more. If you tell some body ‘’SHUT UP’’, he gets annoyed. To the same person if you say ‘’Please do not make noise’’ he will not get annoyed. Similarly swara or phonetics are very important in mantras.
It is like a face of the body. It tells the quality of the language.
Chandas (prosody), the feet of Veda
The riks of Rigveda and Saamaveda is in poetric form. Non-vedic poetry is in Slokas. The Yajurveda consists of both prose and poetry. Major part of Vedas is of poetry. Prose is called Gadya and poetry is Padya. All mantras in Vedas is of verses. So they are called Chandas meaning poetic metre. Or prosody. Whether the form of the given mantra is right or not is determined by Chandas.
Nirukta (lexicon, etymology), the ears of Veda
Nirukta is dictionary. The origin of the words or the root (dhatu) of that word. In the beginning the world language was Sanskrit. Later on the local dialects came into effect with their origin in Sanskrit.
Jyotisa (astronomy-astrology), the eyes of Veda.
Jyotisa includes both astronomy& astrology. Astronomy is the science of position of planets and heavenly bodies. Astrology is the science of finding out the position of sun, the moon, stars/asterisms or 27 Nakshatras like Aswani, Bharani and Krittika etc & constellations or Zodiac signs called Rasis Leo, Scorpio, aeries etc in relation to the birth of a child and their effect on that child and the poojas/prayers that are to be performed at the time of birth, grihapravesa (constructing and entering into new house etc) ceremonies etc..
Kalpa (manual of rituals), the hands of Veda
The application of the above to attain liberation is Kalpa. There are about 40 samsakaras or vedic rites that are to be performed right from conception to death. They are called grihasutras & sratasutras.
Now we will discuss briefly about Four upaangaas. They are Mimamsa, Nyaya, puranaas & Dharma Sastra.
Mimamsa is of two types. they are Poorva mimamsa and Uttara mimamsa.
Poorvamimamsa deals with the importance of sacrifices and other rites of karmakanda of Vedas.
Uttara mimamsa deals with the importance of realization of the self taught in the Gnaanakanda of the Vedas. Brahmasutras and Upanishads constitute the Uttara Mimamsa.
First a question related to Veda is raised, then authenticity of its meaning called samsaya is put forward, then the opponent’s view is presented, (opposition party is called as poorvapakshi), that view is refuted by a party called uttarapakshi, then the conclusion called nirnaya or decision is arrived. The whole process of coming to a fruitful conclusion after discussion is called Adhikarana. JAIMINI MAHARSHI is the founder of Poorvamimasa sutras. Both Sankhyas and mimasakas have the same view that God the father cannot be the creator of this universe. He will not award the fruits of our actions. Our Karma awards the fruits. Eeswara is pure knowledge personified. He is sentient. The universe is full of stones, dust etc. In effect it is insentient. So sentient God can not be the creator of this insentient Jagat. We get the results of our karma by ourselves but not with the interference of God. Only VEDIC karmas are to be followed, rest are to be discarded. The followers of Vedas are called Vedantis. Vedantis say that the Purusha mentioned by Sankhyas is NirgunaBrahma. He becomes SahunaBrahma and forms this Jagat and also awards the result of our Karma. Performance of Vedic rites only give us health, wealth and salvation.
Nyaya is also called tarka sastra. Gautama is its author. Nyaya means syllogism or justice. Tarka means logic. Justice and logic always goes hand in hand. The followers of Nyaya are called Naiyyayikaas. They try to establish the existence of Eeswara through logic. Liberation or salvation is like a sky spreaded everywhere, without any form. The wisdom that is illuminated with pure self of exalted state.
Eeswara like a potter is the creator of this Universe. He is the instrumental cause. He is the guide. Eeswara and Universe are separate entities. Universe is eternal and Eeswara is its guide.
This also is a part of Nyaya sastra. Because of its speciality it is called vaiseshika. KANADA is its author. This Jagat is made by Eeswara with several permutations and combinations of different atoms. The individual self (vyashtatma) in each living being and this JAGAT is different from Eeswara is rendered by both naiyyayikaas (followers of Nyaya) and vaisheshikaas(followers of Kanad’s Vaisheshika). Parameswara or Brahman or God the father is the Creator or Karta.. Vaishesikas firmly believe this and establishes this fact by logic.
Dravya guna karma saamaanya visesha samavaayaabhaavaaha sapta padaardhaaha.
Dravya means substance, guna means quality, karma means action, samaanya means association. Visesha means speciality or difference. samaavaaaya means in born or inherence. Abhaava means non existence.
Dravya is Padartha. All other six things viz., Guna, Karma, saamaanya, visesha, samavaaya & abhaava are depending on the Dravya and hence these six are also called matter.
Guna means cruelty, magnanimity, hard, soft, colour, bravery etc. Karma means seeing, smelling, talking and eating etc. Saamaanya means species. Every matter cannot be of the same species. They might be cows, goats, men,women, and plants etc. Visesha means speciality like intelligence, poor, cows that give more milk and less milk etc. Samavaaya means inherence. Ex: you cannot separate sun and sun rays. Abhava means inert or not doing anything. You must follow abhava in certain situations. Ex: Do not drink wine is the dictum of Vedas. We are benefited by this. So maintain abhava here.
In spite having the mud (matter or material cause or dravya kaaranam) and machine (instrumental cause or sadhanna karanam) no pot can me made without the potter(efficient cause nimitta karanam) . with the knowledge of matter only one will get the most revered and aspired salvation can be achieved. First one should be devoid of all qualities, good or bad. With the absolute knowledge of matter whatever remains is God the father.
Braahmam paadmam vaishnavamcha saivam laingam sagaarudam naaradeeyam bhaagavatam aagneyam skaanda samgnaatam bhavishyam brahmavaivartam markandeyam savaamaanam vaaraaham maatsya koormam cha brahmaandaakhyamiti trishat.
Brahma, padma, Vishnu, siva, linga, garuda, naarada, agni, skanda, bhavishya, brahmavaivartam, markandeyam, vamana, varaaha, matsya, koorma and brahmaanda are the eighteen Puraanaas.
Each Purana highlights about a particular Dharma with illustrations and stories. That is the reason in one Purana Lord Siva is narrated as everything and in another Lord Vishnu etc. Followers of different sects are quarrelling without knowing the inner meaning. Ultimately all devotees are required to reach the same goal called Liberation. Take any element gold, silver or copper etc. Finally they constitue electrons and protons only. Only lattice structure will be different. The workers of a company are given bonus to inculcate curiosity to work with dedication. Children are similarly given candies to take more interest in their studies. Likewise the lucid stories in the Puraanaas make the people to know more about God the father. Dharma, human values, duty of parents, children, and spouses, subjects, king and truthfulness etc., are narrated in these puranas.
Manusmriti, yagnavalkya and Parasarasmrit etc come under the perview of Dharmasastras. These smritis give instructions regarding duties of different varnas or castes or classes of people in a society. There are 40 samskaraas or rituals which are to be followed as per the Dharma sastras. Jatakarma (Pooja & chanting of mantras after the birth of a child), Namakarana (naming ceremony of the child with mantras) and annaprasana (first solid food giving ceremony with mantras), chaula or chuda karma (first cutting of the hair of a child) Paanigrahana (marriage ceremony with mantras) and garbhadana ceremony (nuptials ceremony with mantras)etc., are covered by these Smritis.
Pramana is a measure or standard or authority or understanding or a source of knowledge to come to a logical conclusion. They are 8 types. They are:
Pratyksham kim pramanam? Indriyaartha sannikarshotpannam gnaanam anyapadesyam avyabhichaari vyavasaayaatmakam pratyaksham..
Gautama nyaaya darsanam
No meaure is greater than the one you saw, smelt, tasted, touched and heard. No other witness is required than our own physical senses that have grasped it.
To realize the the effect after seeing the cause (truth). To assume that it will rain (effect) after seeing the cloudy(cause).
To recognize a things with comparison to a known thing(s). ex: to recognize a tiger by Seeing the moles, paws, foot prints etc.
It is a verbal testimony. By hearing the sound of OM during meditation, we feel that we are nearing GOD.
It should be like this. It was like this.
Without cause there is no effect. One may feel cold and shivering. This is the effect. He may have fever or there might be sudden change in the weather. This the cause.
The one that is amenable for creation.
Abhava means inert or not doing anything. To make a wrong decision or mistaken identity is abhava. The one which is right may seem to be wrong and the one which is wrong appears to be right.
5,7 & 8 are clubbed together and is called Anupalabdhi and hence making a total of six Pramanaas.
Everybody can read Veda
Yathemaam vaacha kalyaanee maavadaani janebhyaha brahma raajanyaabhyaag soodraaya chaaryaayacha swaayachaaranaaya.
I, the Brahman, is expatiating this VEDA for the well being of all the castes, Brahman, Kshyatriya, Vaisya, soodra & ladies.
The abuser of Veda is atheist.
Brahmacharyenakanyaayuvaanaam vindate patihim.
Gaargi and Mytreyi, etc., are ladies. They were well versed in Veda vidya. Learning Veda vidya the ladies should select their respective spouses and accordingly marry them.
The creation is made due to Vedic Karma as per Mimamsa, time as per Vaiseshika, electrons and protons as per Nyaya, Purushaatrtha as per Yoga, Nature as per Sankhya and Brahman as per Vedanta.
Eight types of marriages
Marriage with mutual consent of man and woman.
Marriage with the consent of elders.
Marriage by taking dowry from bridegroom.
For doing yagnaas or certain Vedic Karma wife is a must as per Dharma Sastra. Maariage to protect Dharma.
By giving money to both the man and woman and then getting them married for the welfare of Kingdom.
Marriage made due to mutual love of both the spouses with without the consent of elders. No auspicious time and rules or conditions of Dharma is respected.
To abduct the bride forcibly and then marrying.
Give sedatives to the bride and then marrying her in insane conditions using force.
Braahmam is the first category and most desirable.
Daiva and praajaapatyam are of second category/.
Aarsham, aasuram and gaandharvam are of third category.
Raaksham is of fourth category.
The most undesirable and heinous is Paisaachikam.
JEEVA or corrupted soul consists of Attachment, hatred, effort or purushaartha, happiness, misery, intelligence and of three qualities that is Satwa, Rajas and Tamas qualities. Buddhi or intellect constitutes the knowledge of what is good and bad. Mind is of wavering type.
Braahmanosya maukhamaaseeth baahu raajanya kritaha oorootadasya yadwaisyaha padbhaagam soodro ajaayata. Yajyrveda 31-----11
Braahmin came out of the face of Brahman. Face is very important in the body. So the one who does Brahma Karma is called Brahmin. Kshatriya came out of the shoulders of Brahma. Shoulders are the replica of strength. So is the case with Kshatriya, the warrior class. Vaisya, the trader class came out of thighs of Brahma. Thighs are the replica of power of movement. Trade and agriculture is done due to movement. Soodra, the servant or skilled labour has come out of the feet of Brahman. Feet is the replica of labor. Brahman is formless, qualityless and nirvikalpa. So how species came out of a formless God. So as per their Gunas or qualities the classes or castes were formed but not due to biological birth. Caste is some sort of designation like Inspector, Inspector General etc.
Yatra naaryastu poojyante ramante tatra
Devataaha yatraitaastu na poojyante sarvaasta
Traa phalaaha kriyaaha. Manu 3-56
Where the women are respected there the Devataas i.e., the virtuous beings will be playing
with happiness. All works or efforts will be doomed.
Stuti, pooja and Upaasana
With stuti or prayer one will be developing his/ Her likeness to God in that particular form of his liking in which he/she is worshipping. While worshiping God the devotee shall eulogise Him with several attributes. So doing the devotee shall change his attributes akin to that form of God.
Devotee will gain detachment due to these prayers. Our mind will be devoted or dedicated to God in that form. He will be getting appropriate helping hand from that form of God. He will be more enthusiastic.
Upasana means to worship God in a particular sitting posture in the vicinity of Altar. By this a peculiar relationship is created between the God and the devotee.
Suppose a police officer fired on the uncontrolled mob or on a thief on the orders of his superior officers or a soldier killed several people in a war. No sin will touch him as he has not done it on his own independently but on the orders of his superiors. The body, antahkarana (mind), life force and senses should be under our control. Then it is called liberty. The parents are responsible only for the birth of the children and some filial relations up to certain time of our growing up period. The parents are not responsible for the right or wrong doings of their offspring. The children will eat the results of their Karma. Likewise God the father is not responsible for our doings. Police will not make the murder weapon responsible and put it in jail. They will put the murderer behind the bars.
JEEVA --- PARAMATMA
Jeeva(corrupted Soul) is inert and insentient. Jeeva with Cosmic consciousness is sentient and active. The body without Cosmic consciousness is SAVAM i.e., deadbody, with Cosmic consciousness is SIVAM i.e., dynamic.
Generation, operation, destruction, too keep the whole universe in its limits, to accord appropriate Janma or incarnation to the departed souls as per the results of their Karma without any partiality is what God does. To raise a family, to look after the off spring, educate the off spring, utilization of the free will given by God, and to learn Brahma vidya is the duty of Jeeva. Desires, No desires, happiness, misery, cold, heat, wisdom, no wisdom, effort etc are the things Jeeva contains. This aspect is agreed upon by both the followers of Nyaya and vaiseshika.
As long as there is soul in the body, these qualities will be functioning. Everyything is present tense to Brahman. No future and past tenses for Brahman. His knowledge is unique and present.
Aagner rigvedo, vaayor yajurvedo, sooryat saamavedaha. Satapatha 11—4—2.3
In the beginning of creation Brahman has made known the Vedas to sages Agni, Vayu, Aditya and Aangeerasa.
Agni vaayuh avibhyastu trayam Brahma sanaatanam dudohayagna sidyartha mrigyajussaama lakshanam .. Manu 1---23
In the beginning of creation, Brahman has created men. With the assistance of four sages viz., Agni, Vayu, Aditya and Aangeerasa. he made known the knowledge of Vedas to Kaarya (working) Brahma.
Agni is Manipura Chakra, Vayu is Anaahata Chakra, Additya is Sahasraara chakra and Aangeerasa is Swaadhisthaana Chakra. Vedam means the one which is heard i.e., OM.
Om ityekaaksharam Brahma vyaahaaranmaam anusmaran
yaha prayaati tyajandeham sayaati paramaam gatim. Gita 8—13
OM is the word of Brahman. So memorize that OMincessantly. The one who leaves this body memorizing OM shall get the abode of Brahman.
Parabrahma prathamo guruhu.
Parabrahma prathamo bhishak.
Brahman is the first teacher. He only taught us,teaching us and shall teach us everything through OM. Brahman is the first Doctor. OM is the medicine he is giving us. It is the best and divine. Meditating on OM sound and practicing Pranayaama techniques shall give us health, prosperity, peace and tranquility.
The things that are grasped in Samadhi state are called Brahmanaas. These are also called vyakhyanaas. Mantras in Rik, yaju, sama and atharva veda are called Vedas. These mantras were given to great sages by Brahman Himself in the beginning. The sages due to the grace of Brahman could explain the meanings of those Mantras. The things explained by great sages are called Brahmanaas. The sages are of selfless and of great vision. They have dedicated everything for the welfare of mankind. They have not even named their findings like Newton’s laws or Darwin theory etc. There were about 1127 chapters in Vedas.
Cause and Effect
The combination or commingling of Satwa (positive), Rajas (Neutral) and Tamas (negative) qualities in different combinations is NATURE. The subtlest matter is the product of this Nature. Combination of this subtlest matter in different ways lead to the creation of subtle(sookshma) and physical(sthoola) creations. The subtlest matter required for the very first such combination is called KARANA (catalyst) or Cause or Kaarana. The result of that very first combination or Sansarga is called effect or Kaaryam. Hydrogen and oxygen are not visible to the eye before combination. After combination they change their invisible form and become a visible molecule of water. So things will change their configurations before and after their combinations. So Brahman will create the ideal situation or provides the required cosmic consciousness for the combinations of subtlest matter. This is called Praprathamaavastha or very very first state. The most subtlest Nature is this. This is called Pradhanam. The subtlest state that comes out of this very very first state is called MATTATWAM. This Mahat Tatwam is responsible for tangible creation later. From Mahat tatwam came out ether, air, fire, water and earth. And from them came out sound, touch, configuration, taste and smell respectively. From ether sound came out. Air came out of ether. So it has its own touch tatwam and also sound of ether. Fire came out of Air. So it has its own configuration or seeing tatwam and also touch and sound of air. Water came out of fire. It has its own taste tatwam and seeing,touch,hearing of fire. Earth came out of water. It has smell tatwam. In addition to this it has seeing, touch, hearing and taste of water. Remember that these are all in subtlest forms. This is Karana srishti or Karana creation. Karana is the cause of subtler creation or sookshma srushti. And sookshma is the cause of sthoola or physical creation.
Manushyaa rishayaschayetato manushyaa ajaayanta.
In the beginning men, sages and several things came out of Brahman.
Nizaaneeryaanyecha dasyavaha. Rigveda
In the beginning all men were equal. There after they were divided into Brahmin, kshyatriya, vaisya and sudra classes as per their karma.
Learned are called Aryas. Illiterate are anaryas or dasyas. The Aryas made this Bharat as their abode. Hence the name Aryavartam came into effect.
60 paramanuvu i.e., 60 most subtlest electrons and protons = one Anu (atom).
Two Anus(Atoms) = dvyanukam or sthoola vaayu (physical air).
Three dvyanukams = one Agni (fire)or trasa renu (spark)
Four dvyanukams = one Jala(water) renu (molecule).
Five dvyanukams = one prithvi(earth) renu (molecule).
Because of each water molecule of Four dvyanukams, the sky in the appears blue. The combination of one dvyanukam or sthoola vaayu and one prithvi(earth) renu (molecule) roaming in the air will appear like smoke. The image of this smoke only we see in the water which appears to be blue.
Satyenotta mitaabhoomihi. Rigveda 10—85--14
Sun attracts earth. Brahman attracts sun.
Yamena vaayunaa Rigveda 10— 14---8
Yama means Air. After leaving the body the Jeeva or soul remains in Air. As per his/her Karma, the jeeva enters the yoni (vagina) of lady through Air, Water, Anna(food) and purusha veerya (sperm of man). Then he comes out of woman in a form male or female infant. One day everybody has to leave this mortal sack. However every one will try to lead a happy life by hook or crook. Jeeva wanted filial happiness. Mukta or liberated one will remain with Brahman ever happily. On the earth as per his status the abode will be provided. For example President, Prime Minister, industrialist or moneyed people etc will live palatial buildings on this earth. Even his relations can stay in those palaces and roam freely. Similarly the Mukta purusha can roam freely with other liberated souls in this infinite JAGAT. With pure wisdom he can see the panaromic view of this infinite Jagat. To unite with Brahman is beatitude. Entangling with desires is Hell. Rivers will lose their existence after meeting ocean. Likewise the completely liberated soul will ultimately unite with Brahman and lose his/her identity.
Oordhwam gachhanti satwasthaa madhye tishtanti raajasaaha jaghanya guna vruttisthaa atho gachhanti taamasaaha. Gita 14---18
After leaving the body, the soul with positive satwa guna will go to higher echelons, neutral Rajo guna soul will go to the middle path of mankind and negative tamo guna soul will take birth in animals birds and creatures etc.
Devatwam saatwikaayaamti manushyatwam raajasaa tiryaktwam taamasaa nityamityeshaa trividhaagatihi. Manu 12—40
The soul with Satwa guna or positive quality will go to the plane of Devataas, Neutal quality soul or Rajo Guna soul will take birth as human beings and negative tamo guna soul will take birth in plants, creatures, birds and animals etc.
Satwam sukhe samjayati rajaha karmani Bharata
Gnaanamaavrityatu tammah pramaade samjayati
Satwa guna will provide happiness. Rajo guna shall make you workbound. Tamo Guna will always make you ignorant to do wrong things and hence put you into troubles.
Satwaat sanjaayate gnaanam rajasolobha evacha
Pramaadamohau tamasobhavati agnaanamevacha
From satwa guna one gets wisdom, greed from Rajo guna and illusion, ignorance and carelessness from Tamo guna.
Devine qualities and Demon qualities
Abhayam satwasansuddhi gnaanayoga vyava sthitihi aanandamascha yagnascha swaadhyaaya
ntapa aarjavam ahimsaasatyam akrodhaha tyagaha saantihi apaisunam dayabhooteshwa lolatwam
maardavam hreerachaapalam tejahakshamaadhritissaucham adroho naati maanitaa bhavanti sampadam daiveemabjaa tasya bhaarata. Gita 16-----1,2,3
Fearlessness, pious heart, to have wisdom and practice yoga, charity, control of senses, performance of holy rituals, study of scriptures, penance, not having hypocrisy, non violence, truthfulness, not having anger, sacrifice, peacefulness, not carrying tales, compassion, absence of greed, tenderness, modesty, lack of restlessness, character effulgence, patience, forgiveness, courage, cleanliness, lack of doing harm to others and modesty are the qualities divinely inclined persons.
The divine qualities lead to liberation (nivrutti) and demonic qualities lead to bondage(pravrutti). This is determined at the time of creation.
Dambodarpa abhimaanascha krodhaha pauruashya mevacha agnaanam chaabhijaatasya paartha sampadamaasureem. Gita 16-----4
Boastfulness, pride, arrogance, anger, harsh behaviour, ignaarance are the remarkable or recognizable things of a man born with demonic qualities.
Pravrittimcha nivruttimcha janaanaviduraasuraaha
Nasaucham naapichaachaaro na satyam teshu vidyate. Gita 16---7
The man born with demonic qualities shall not know the right path of action. He will not refrain from evil action. He lacks purity internally and externally. He does not follow Dharma and truth.
Asatyam apratisthamte jagadaahuraneeswaram
Aparaspara sambhootam kimmanyaakaamahaitu kam. Gita 16-----8
Demonic man says: ‘’ This Jagat is not built on Truth, not built as per the standards of Veda, no morals, it is bullshit to belive that Iswara is its creator. Lustful desires of man and woman relationship is the only cause of this world and nothing else.
Trividham narakasyedam dwaaram naasana maatmanaha Kaamakrodhaha tadhaalobhaha tasmaat etatrayam tyajet. Gita 16-----21
Lust, anger and greed are the three types of doors of Hell. This threefold gate shall destroy the man/woman. So these three should be avoided.
He is the founder of Visisthaadwaita or qualified Non dualism. Jeeva (soul), Brahman, and Maya all three are eternal according to him. He has taught that things with their inherent faults should be avoided. One should not take one’s food from people who give without love. Ramanuja accepts Pratyaksha pramana, Anumana pramana and Vedas.
All three giants i.e., Shri Ramanuja, Madhvacharya and Adi sankaracharya follow vedantic doctrines only. They are not against vedic rituals.
Brahman is omnipresent. He exists in every animated and inanimated world. He is formless and without any quality. So formless Good does not have any idol. Respect your parents who are living Gods. Give food and Alms to the poverty sticken and needy fellow human beings. Service to man is service to God. Maintain mutual respect with your spouse. Construct charity hospitals, schools for poor children and choultries. Love thy neighbour as you love thyself as told by Jesus Christ. Not a single rupee come alongwith you when you depart from this body. The idol worship was started after Mahabharat War i.e., about 5000 or more years ago. The money,Gold and jewels etc offered to the Idols shall attract some evil minded and bad unsocial people to loot this property. This is exactly happened centuries ago. Foreign invaders looted several jewels and Gold etc some centuries ago. They have looted the temples like Somnath etc in India. After their departure local unsocial activity people are looting and will loot in future also. They will bracingly occupy the lands given to the temples.
Rigveda contains 21 chapters. Yajurveda contains 101 chapters. Samaveda contains 1000 chapters. Atharvaveda contains 9 chapters. All these totaling to 1131 chapters.
Karma kanda was given importance in Jaimini’s Mimamsa. In patanjali’s yogasastra meditation was given importance. Wisdom or gnaana was given importance in Sri Vyasa’s Brahmasutras. All these were written in accordance with the Vedas. But in all these treatises idol worship was not at all mentioned. This should be observed.
Paritavyam tadapi martavyam dantakatakateti kim kartavyam.
One has taken poison. Afterwards he realized that he should not have done that. Then what is the use. His realization did not save him. Likewise one does so many sins. Afterwards he visits several holy places to get rid of his sins. It is of no use. So man should do good deeds for the welfare of fellow beings incessantly till death.
Takaadharmaha takakarma takaahiparamampadam
Yasyagrihe takaanaasti takaatakatakaayate.
Every one is thinking that money is Dharma, money is Karma and money is liberation. One who had money he had everything. One who has no money is dying saying ‘’ money, money and money’’. But no body is desiring, gabbling in dream and dying for God.
Nothing can stand without base. Every effect had a cause. For every Karma there must be a Karta. No organ can exist without life. Likewise one cannot think about a world without Brahman. Ether is spread, percolated and permiated in each and every noumenon or subject. But earth and ether cannot be the same. Like wise after making this Jagat with subtlest electrons and protons, Brahman is percolated into that. He made the parents responsible for the progenies to continue the creation incessantly by dwelling in each and every aanimated and inanimated Jagat. With his infinite qualities God is making the Jagat, existing the Jagat and destroying the Jagat without entangling in it. Paramatma is faultless, qualityless, fully liberated, omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient. Jeeva is having limited presence, bound, corrupted with Satwa, Rajas and Tamas qualities.
Karta (subject) is Paramatma. Karma(object) is Jeeva. Kaaryam (Effect) is Jagat.
This Jagat, Jeevaas (living beings), the works of Jeeva and bonds are eternal as per Jains.
Fried seed does not germinate. The liberated Jeeva shall not incarnate and merge with Brahman as per the followers of Adwaita siddhanta of Adi Sankaracharya.
Poornamidam poornamadaha poornaat poorna mudachyate poornasya poornamaadaaya poornamevaa vasishyate.
The intangible Brahman is full. Tangible Jagat is full. Tangible Jagat came out of the intangible Brahman. This jagat even though came out of that Brahman but Brahman remains full like a child is full pledged and its mother is also full pledged.
Eesavaasyamidam sarvam yatkincha jagatyaam jagat tenatyaktena bhunjeethaamaagrithaha kasyaswiddhanam. Eesopanishad.
Jagat is perishable. Eeswara is unperishable. This perishable Jagat is impregnated with unperishable Brahman. Do not aspire for getting the things of others. Sacrifice everything for Brahman.
Baalavastaat kreedaasaktaha tarunastaavattarunee raktaha vriddhastaavat chintaamagnaha paramebrahmani kopinalagnaha.
In childhood one is interested in sports. In youth he is interested in girls or uxorious. In oldage he is interested in marriages of children etc. But nobody is having time for God.

5) In the quarrel between pig and dog, the pariah is benefited by taking that bone.
6) The mirage make us to faulter that there is water in it. Likewise the enemy make us to believe that he is a friend and not a foe.
7) The great people shall not shed his qualities inspite of their inability like oldage etc. The lions shall not eat grass inspite of becomimg old.
8) One should not display mercy till he reaches the goal. The lamb will drink milk from the udder of its mother by hitting hardly repeatedly.

Qualities will come due to wealth but not vice versa.

This is not required for Mukti or liberation. To follow or live in Brahmann is called Brahmacharyam. To remain with one wife throughout life is also some form of celibacy called GRAAHASTHA BRAHMACHARYAM. So liberation is possible while remaining in marriage institution. In certain Hindu marriages a pendant is tied on the Agna+ chakra or kootastha with the help of a turmeric besmeared thread around the head called BHAASIKAM. This is to remember you to excite Agna + Chakra in the front and Agna –ve chakra on the back of the head. A turmeric besmeared thread with a raw turmeric or a round small gold pendant called MANGALASUTRA is tied with three knots in such a way that the gold pendant or raw turmeric shall be hanging on the ANAAHATA chakra and the three knots will be resting on the back of the bride’s neck or VISUDDHA chakra indicating that both these chakras are to be excited. Even at the auspicious moment zeelakarra(cumin seeds) and jaggery are mixed and kept on the Brahmarandhram indicating that both of you and your wife’s ultimate aim is to make the kunndalini to reach sahasrara chakra.
Both husband and wife will walk seven steps together around the fire meaning that they will cross or help each other to cross these seven chakras viz., mooladhara, swadhisthana, manipura, anaahata, visuddha, agna and sahasrara to achieve liberation. Both take oaths to that effect that both are equal partners in Dharma, Artha (earning wealth through fair means), Kaama (desires) and moksha (liberation).
Seven yoginee Devatas
Maata means measuring, maanam means measure, and meyam means the one which is to be measured. All these three together is called KULAM. This trinity is called Sridevi or Kaaleeswari.

Skin, blood, flesh, mind and bone are sources of energy. The remaining bone marrow, sperm, life force and Jeeva belongs /or relates to Siva. Apart from these nine elements it is said that the tenth element is PARASAKTI. It comprises all these nine elements.
Yatra naanyat pasyati naanyat srunoti naanyat vijaanaati bhoomaa.
The state of not knowing, hearing and seeing any thing is called BHOOMA.
Naadam is superior to Pranavam. This Naadam appears as PARA in triangle of SRICHAKRA, PASYANTI in Ashtakonam (octagon), MADHYAMA in Dasaraygmam (ten angled ) and VAIKHAREE in Chaturdasaaram ( fourteen angled one). All these Sivasakti related Four Chakras are fully impregnated with Naadaatmaka Sakti. All these are different shades of DEVI.
After the fall of this physical body, Jeeva (soul) enters the Pancha Bhootas ( root cause of creation), enters ether in the form of sraddha or dedication, enters clouds through moon rays, enters the earth through rain, enters man through fire(Agni), enters the female vagina through male sperm, becomes a foetus in the womb of mother. Then he comes out as male or female child. Sage Jaimini has explained this to sage Gautama through a sutra ‘’ dyuparjanya prithivee purusha yoshitsu’’. Even sage Vyasa said this in his Brahmasutras through
‘’ tadantarapratipattau ramhati samparishwaktaha’’.
Saankhyaas make the Pradhanam responsible for creation but not the Brahman. Both Gautama (nyaaya darsanam) and Kanaada( vaiseshika darsanam) say “ Iswara made the transformation of atoms for creation’’. They say both cosmos and individual self i.e., Macro and micro coswmos are separate entities from Eeswara.
The greatness of mother
Upaadhyaan dasaachaaryaha Achaaryanaam satampitaa sahasrantu pitroon maataagauravenaatirichityate.
One Master is equivalent to ten ordinary teachers. Hundred masters are equivalent to one father. Even thousand fathers are not equivalent to one mother. So who soever make the mother suffer is definitely a demon.
Some slokaas (Verses)
Satyaanuchaarinee lakshmi keertityaagaanusaarinee
Abhyaasasaalinee vidyaa buddhih karmaanusaari nee. Lakshmi(wealth) serves Truth, fame serves sacrifice, education serves industioous person and Karma follows Buddhi.
Praatah joodaprasangena madhyahne stree prasangena ratrau chora prasangena kaalo gachchati dheemataam. This has got two meanings which may please be observed.
People while away their time with gambling in the morning, gossiping about women in the afternoon and discussing about thieves in the night.
Wise people spend their time with discussion of Mahabharata in the morning, Ramayana in the afternoon and Shrimadbhagavat in the night.
Nahijanmani sreshtatwam jyeshtatwam gunamuchyate. Gunaat gurutwamaayaati dadhidughdhhwamghritam yathaa.
Greatness cannot come by birth. It has to be acquired. Milk becomes curd and from curd comes out clarified butter( ghee) as per their qualities. Like wise as per their great qualities caste/class comes.
Ojas means energy of body or body strength. (kriya ssakti).
Tejas means mental maturity. ( Ichha sakti).
Duti means intellectual ability or buddhiprakaasam. (Gnaana Sakti).
Swanaama chihnitaadhanyaaha pitrunaamasya madhyamaah. Putranaamasyaathamaah swasurena athamaathamaah.
One should be recognized by one’s own qualities abilities. This is the best. Recognition obtained through father is second quality. Recognition obtained through offspring is third quality. Recognition obtained through father-in-law is worst quality.
Greeks & Europeans have limited their experiments regarding Soul, Brahman etc to outer world only. The ancient sages found the things required for the transcendental world on an eternal basis by going deep into the mind and were successful. Vedant describes the Dharma as the experience beyond the senses. It never describes the Dharma as external to Nature or cannot be achieved by being in the Nature or beyond the Nature. What is upanishat? It is the reading of antahkarana or mind. It is called Sriti. In that the efforts of great sages is found but not their legacy. Sriti is true in all times. It will not change according to time. Bhagavatgita, mahabharatam, Ramayanam, manu smriti, yaagnavalkya smriti, Parasara smriti etc are called Smritis. These Smritis change as per time. For ex: matric currency came into effect from 1957. The coins & currency prior to 1957 will not be valid now. The law during past cannot be made applicable now. What is religion? It is called Matam in Sanskrit. Matam means mind. So religion came out of mind. Naturally it will be named after that person who started it. Matam or religion normally dependent upon the life and living style of that Matakarta or the one who had started it.
Hindu matam or religion depends upon Veda& Puranaas.
Tadetat brahmaapoorvam anantaram abaahyam. Ayam aatmaa brahma sarvanubhooh.
This Brhaman is not having ins and outs. No beginning and ending. Everything is experienced by Brahmam.
Hindu matam or religion will show you the path of intangible Brahman through tangible Brahman. It has not endorsed this path limited to caste, creed, race, class, sex and even age. It emphasized that attaining liberation is the right of every human being. It says that who traverses the path of truth and who is having the capacity to question is the innovator. Hindumatam does not torture the people for baptizing. Hindu dharma and Indiawhich is called KARMABHOOMI is destroyed then the whole world will be perished. If anybody contemplates destruction of Indiashall be in peril and will be annihilated totally. There will not be any iota of doubt in it. They will be incommunicado.
All physical laws are manifestations only. They are not creation. Central and State Governments make Rules and regulations through the legislatures. This is creation. The officers of Central and the respective state governments implement those orders. This is called manifestation. But the officers of State or Central Govt officers are not empowered to make the rules& regulations.
Energy is two types. Potential (Gupta shakti) and Kinetic (vimukta shakti). Potential (Gupta shakti) energy is called Avyaktam. It is infinite, steady (nischalam) and unparallel. This Potential (Gupta shakti) energy is called unmanifested Brahman. Kinetic (vimukta shakti) energy is manifested Brahman. This manifested Brahman is creative. It moves and vibrates. Brahman, energy, Bhagavan or God and Jagat are one and the same thing.
Newton has seen one apple falling down. Falling down is one physical incident and seing that falling down is another physical incident. The relation between these two physical incidents led to law of gravitation. The invention of steam engine is also the result of a relation between two physical incidents. This led to a science physical science or Physics. So physics is the science dealing with relationship of two or more physical incidents. Likewise the relation between living beings led to Biology. All sorts of alfa, beta, gaama, x, radio etc rays are nothing but electromagnetic waves. There is unity between animated and inanimated things. All these things were found by great Rishis during their meditation.jagat, physical and mental business are combinely called PRAKRITI or Nature. Physical business ( Sareeraka pravritti) is called Jagrataavastha (sthoola sareera or physical body). Mental business ( maanasika pravritti) is called swapnaavastha or subtle body or sookshma sareer). The things that appear in these two states i.e.,waking (conscious) and sleeping (subconscious) states are called AHAMKRIT in Sanskrit. These Ahamkrits or the appeared things in these two states merge with superconscious state or sushupti or tureeya sthiti and disappear. Lastly everything merges in COSMIC CONSCIOUSNESS. This Cosmic consciousness is called the knower or Gnaata.so whatever is seen or appears in subconscious or conscious states is nothing but the contours of KNOWER or God the father only. Once“I concept’’ i.e., I am the doer or the ego is givenup the remaining is self realization or ATMASAKSHATKAARAM only. As told by Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi one should strive for
“who am I ?’’ is only required than the question ‘’ what I had achieved?’’. For that one must become Yama. The one who is having unflinching selfcontrol is called Yama. Swami Vivekanannda said, ‘’ The believers of pratyksha vada i.e., the people who believe the things that are seen or felt by the senses nakedly may ridicule Mata Dharma or rules & regulations of a religion but if you remove Matadharma from the society of men and women then the remaining is beasts of forest only. The goal of mankind is not pleasures of senses. The goal is to gain Brahma gnaan or spiritual wisdom. Real wisdom spiritual greatness. That is the real wisdom.’’. This spiritual wisdom gives us the real happiness. All the material gains are nothing but writings on the water.
Sense pleasure is but natural. To give up the ultimate goal of spiritual victory and thrive for material gains is suicidal.
Yaavai bhoomaa tatsukham naalpesukhamasti bhoomaiva sukham bhoomaatweva vijignaasitavyaiti. Chandogyam 7---23
‘’Gain of infiniteness is real happiness. The one which is having beginning and ending does not give us happiness. So one should endeavour for knowledge of God the father’’ said the great saint Sanatkumara.
Om sabdavaachyamcha sabdaprateekamcha.
Om is not a word or phonics. It is more than that. Omis the word. Its contour and meaning is also Omonly. Vaagarthaamiva sanpruptau says Mahakavi Kaidas, the Inndian Shakespere. Word and its meaning are unbreakable. There are no sun rays withut Sun. Both are compliment to each other. The conglomeration or combination of different gestures into a compatable or coherent form is language. Mathematics or any other subject is formed like this only. Om is the combination AKAARA, UKAARA and MAKAARA phonics. It is having Universal concept. The whole Universe has come out of sphotam or sabdam or sound. The universe that came out of this sound is manifested Brahman or Vyakta Brahman. The description or Vaachakam of this Universe is the word OM. This Om can digest all phonics/syllables in its womb.
A Maatra or syllable is depicted as point in OM. This syllable is representing generator or working Brahma. VA Maatra or syllable is representing operator or Vishnu iin Om. Immm is representing destructor or Maheswara in Om.
An article or a thing can be big or small. It cannot be both at the same time. When you compare that thing with different things it may appear as big or small. Photon is as big as the whole world and as small as the whole of a needle. That is what the scientists say. But soul is subtler than Atom and bigger than universe. There is no doubt about it. The first word or sound is nothing but OMonly. It will take the meditator nearer to the God and ultimately make this meditator to merge with God is this OM only which is called Nadabrahma.
Om tatbrahma om tatvaaytuhu om tatvishnuhu
Brahma (working generator), Vishnu (operator) and Maheswara(destructor) came out of OM only.
Sarva vedaayatpadam aamananti--- katha Upanishad
Lord Yama (the death God) told Nachiketa that the ideal or goal for all Vedas is OM only.
Ashtaangam chatushpaadam tristhaanam pancha daivatam Omkaaram yonajaanaati braahmano na braahmanaha.
Viswa, taijasa, praagna, pratyagaatma, viraat, hiranyagarbha, avyaakruta and paramaatma are the eight limbs of OM. Akaara, Ukaara, Makaara and Arthamathra are four legs of OM. Jaagrata (conscious state ), swapna (subconscious state) and sushupti (superconscious state) are three states of OM. Brahma, Vishnu, Rudra, Sadaasiva and Maheswara are five wings of OM. If these things are not known then one cannot get liberation.
Hraswo dahati paapaani deergomoksha pradaayakaha adhyaayanaha plutovaapi trividhochhaaranenatu.
You can pronounce OMas hraswam i.e., shorter or as plutam i.e., little longer, or deerghaam i.e., more longer. Hraswam i.e., shorter OM will remove our sins. Plutam i.e., little longer OMwill make our just desires fulfilled. Deerghaam i.e., more longer OM will liberate us. If you utter OM loudly so that it is heard then it is called Vaachikam. If it is uttered in the gullet without opening the mouth then it is called Upaansu. If it is uttered mentally without any sound coming out then it is called Maanasikam. Omkaaram comprises Naadam, Bindu and Kala. The concerned body shall get merged in the next body and gives the result immediately depending upon the places it is memorized.
Nada, Bindu and Kala are the replicas of
a) satwa, rajas & tamas qualities,
b) Conscious, Sub conscious and super conscious states, and c) Akaara, Ukaara & Makaara.
Pranavanaadam japatwaam tadaa mukto bhavishyanti.
There is a gender difference between all other Mantras. There is no gender difference OM chanting. So get liberated by chanting OM.
Sobriquets for liberation
Raajayogam samaadhischa unmaneecha manonmanee amaratwam layastatwam soonyaasoonyam parampadam amanakam tathaa adwaitam niraalambam niranjanam Jeevanmuktischa sahajaa turyaacha ityekavaachakaa.
Liberation has got so many synonyms. They are:
Raajayogam, Samadhi, unmanee, manonmanee, amaratwam, laya, tatwam, soonyaasoonyam, parampadam, amanaskam, adwaitam, niraalambam, niranjanam, jeevanmukti, sahaja and tureeyam.
Uttamaa tatwa chintaiva madhyamaa saastra chintanam athamaa mantra chintamcha teerthabhratyaaha athamaathamaa.
Always remembering or thinking about Brahman is number one category. Remembering or thinking about Sastras is middle category. Visiting holy places is least category.
Penance means heat.
Tena tyaktena bhunjeetha---------- Eesanyopanishad.
Live or spend your life in sacrifices. To starve body without food and torturing it with severe religious doctrines in order to get salvation is not Penance.
Saa vidya Adhyaatma vidyaa. Real and the most superior education is spirituality. To shed the low value material benefits for the sake of the highest valued Spiritual gains is Penance or Tapas. For higher gains we give up/sacrifice so much of playing time for the sake of education. This is also Tapas. The Sadhana we do for physical, mentasl & spiritual allround upliftment is Penance. The burning of incense stick (Agarbatti) in our house will spread its fragrance to the neighbours around your house. Likewise our allround upliftment shall be most useful not only to us but also to the society. We will become heros instead of villains in the society. The merger of mind and senses is real penance. This penance is superior to all Dharmas. The penance is the root cause of literature, arts, fine arts, sciences and for all sorts of sadhana. Vedas are not draconian laws that make us a bonded labour. They are not Jails. They will emphasise that find out Paramatma dwelling in you. You are not dwelling in Him and hence the difficulties.
Three Bodies and five sheaths.
1) Physical Body (sthoola sareeram):
It consists of Annamaya kosh or sheath. It is studied in Anatomy.
2) Subtle Body ( sookshma sareer):
It consists of three sheaths. They are praanamaya, manomaya and vignaanamaya sheaths. The individuality of man and reincarnation or rebirth after death is included in this body. This body is studied in Nervous systems, tatwa sastra and psychology.
3) Idea body ( Kaarana sareera):
This consists of the last sheath i.e., Anandamaya kosh. This body is studied in Nyaya, Mimamsa ans manstatwa sastra.
Yadidam kincha jagatsarvam praanaejati nissrutaha.
Whole jagat is manifested due the vibrations of Praana. Thing is one only. Due to naama (names) and roopa (configurations) it becomes inert Jagat or Cosmos. With cosmic consciousness that Jagat transforms into Mind. Avyaktam means unmanifested and is called Bija sakti or root power. Its first sibling is MAHAT.
The decay of physical body is called DEATH. The Jeeva and life force comes out from that body after death. It will travel in air(Vayu mandalam). Such types of souls with life forces in the air will be encountered by this soul. These souls with unfulfilled and different types of desires shall be wandering in different echelons of this plane of air. These types of souls or Jeevas without having any Physical body (bodies) are called Pretas. These pretas are having subtle and idea bodies only. This world is called Preta prapancham.
Where the soul leaves the body there in that surroundings of that place, this Preta will be getting the experiences of other worlds. The sight of the dead man shall merge with Sun. Life force merges in Air, speech merges in Fire, blood and sperm of male and female merges in water and physical body merges in the earth. The life force is divided into five airs called Prana, Apaana, samana, vyaana & Udaana. These five pranas are further divided into ten and then into fifty airs. Each is having a specific function to perform. For ex: Praana for crystallization (sphatikeekarana), samana for assimilation(spongeekarana), apaana for elimination (visarjana), udaana for metabolizing (Jeevaanupaaka) and Vyaana for circulation (prasarana).The UDAANAVAAYU(one of the five life forces) in the throat shall send the subtle and idea bodies out of the dead body. What is death? We go to bed after getting tired and after getting up the body gets invigorated. Sleep is a shorter one for invigoration of the body. In sleep the life force, mind (subtle body) and Idea body remain alive. The physical body is static or as good as dead. Like wise this death is a long sleep. So till rebirth the other two bodies viz., subtle and Idea bodies remain active in other fields as per their Karma etc. The transmigeration of soul from one physical body to another physical body is called death. The merger of subtle and Idea bodies with Brahman is liberation. Birth is destined. It is the entrance. So death is also destined. It is the exit. This is unavoidable for any Jeeva till it merges with Brahman.
Take a fistful of earth and put it into a Jar filled with water. The subtlest particles will be floating on the surface of the water. The other particles shall be suspending or lying on the bottom of water as per their magnitude or weight. Likewise the departed souls or Jeevaas shall be roaming in their orbits in different fields according to their developmental status. They cannot encroach the fields assigned to them. The higher echelon Jeevaas can visit the lower echelons if they wish but not vice versa. On the physical plane also the accommodation is given to the Govt servants as per their respective status. If Chief Minister or Prime Minister wants he can summon or call a clerk or officer but not vice versa. The Jeevas shall get rebirth according to their respective Karma as a man, animal. Bird, tree or creature. For rebirth it may take 2 to 5000 years.
If we are able to taste, eat, drink and hear then it can be said that all the three bodies are working in general and physical body in particular. Plannings, dreams and internal visions are happening means both subtle and idea bodies are working in general and subtle body in particular. Deep sleep, deep meditation and farsightedness are the work(s) of Idea body. So the man working with Physical body is material man, while working with subtle body he is called Energetic man and while working with Idea body he is called pragnaa or wisdom man.
Will power or ichhasakti means creation is planned (Karana).
Power of wisdom or Gnaanasakti means order of creation(subtle).
Power of work or kriyasakti means the contour of creation (Physical).
The creation is nothing but Brahman without changing himself shall appear in different names and contours like gold and gold jewellery.
If actual thing is covered it is called Avarana Dosha or fault of the cover. A burning wick is not visible due to the darkened glass cover or chimney because of the smoke. If actual thing appears to be something else it is called Vikshepana Dosha. Dosha means fault. It is something like a rope in the darkness creates an illusion of snake. Here darkness is Avarana dosha and to mistake the rope as snake is vikshepana dosha.
The kindness or grace of God
Mookam karoti vaachaalam pangum langhayate girim yatkripaa tamaham vande paramaananda maadhavam.
Dumb fellow will be able to speak and a lame fellow shall be able to climb the mountains. Oh God! Only your grace is required then anything is possible. Salutations to you.
As per Hindu mythology, Lord Vishnu had eight incarnations. They are:
1) Matsya---- grasp wisdom out of ocean of doubts.
2) korma---- lead life with unattachment.
3) varaaha-----dedication and discipline are the two teeth. With that do your duties or Dharma.
4) Naarasimha----- shed ego.
5) Vaamana---sacrifice everything to God.
6) Parasurama------- suurender or suffer.
7) Srirama-----------what you encounter in life is decision of Karma and self effort.
8) Sri Krishna---- be amenable to God.
In kaliyuga Kalki, the Avataar of Vishnu will be born to Vishnu yas in village Sambhala is what is written in Srimadbhagavat.
Visting great saints will remove our sins, touching them shall remove our Karma and conversing with shall remove our difficulties.
The sound of life force is called Naadam, pure intellect is called Bindu (Point) and effulgence that is reflecting in this Bindu is called Kala. The combination of Naada, Bindu and Kala is called Pranavam or Saguna(with qualities) and saakaara (with contour) or tangible Brahman . Paramaatma or Brahman or God the father is beyond this Naada, Bindu and Kala. That is why God is Naada bindu kalaateeta. The whole animated and inanimated universe is percolated and permeated with this Pranavam. Its form is effulgence or JYOTIRMAYAM.
Sabdabrahmamayi, Charaacharamayi, Jyotirmayi, Vaangmayi, Nityaanandamayi, paraatparamayi, Mayamayi and Srimayi are the eight types of wealth of God. Materialisation is Body (Durga). Vibration or life force(Lakshmi) is for the movement of this body. To keep that life force in a proper manner is Radiation or Pragnaasakti(Sarasdwati).
Meaning of some words or symbals of Mythology
Chakra (a weapon of Vishnu/Sri Krishna) is symbol for mentality. Likewise gada(truncheon) for intellect or Buddhi, Bow (Dhanush) for ego, Ojas for Kriyasakti, Tejas for Ichhasakti, dyuti for Gnaana sakti, blue colour for infinitude, Aadisheshu ( the srpent bed of SriMahavishnu) or Paancha Janyam ( counch of Sri Krishna) for mind, Vaijayantimaala ( a garland that adores Sri Maha Vishnu) and pillar for body are the sybols. Astibhaati priyam roopam naamachetasya panchakam Adyatrayam Brahmaroopam jagadroopam tatodwayam.
Asti means Sattu or omnipotent, bhaati means chittu or omnipresent and priyam means aanandam or omniscient are eternal. Naamam means names and roopam means configuration are not permanent. That is Brahman with first three attributes is eternal. The Jagat with next two attributes is temporary.
Food and Mind
Annam pumsaasitam trethaha jaayate jatharaagninaa malamstavishthobhaagasyaat madhyamo maamsataam vrajet mano kanishtobhaagasyaat tasmaat annamayam manaha.
The food we take is converted into three forms by the energy fire in the stomach. (1) the solid part into excretions and urine, (2) the semi solid portions into blood, bones, marrow and nerves etc of seven elements and (3) the subtle portion becomes mind.
Even if it is seen according to Pancheekarana also, the ether portion shall become antahakarana, vaayu portion becomes mind, agni portion becomes buddhi, water portion becomes chittam and earth portion becomes ego.
Anumantaa visasitaa nihamtaa kraya vikrayaa
Sanskartaacha upahartaacha khaadakascha iti ghaatakaaha.
The eater of the fish, frogs birds and animals etc, their young ones, their eggs, butcher, the one who supports the butcher for killing those dumb living beings, buyer, seller, the cook and carrier are all sinners. If a tree is cut then the new branches and leaves that come out will be of that tree only. God is described as Paramadayalu meaning magnanimity personified. He even protects his children by killing the demonic people like Hiranyakasipa, Hiranyaaksha, Ravana and Kumbhakarna etc. Such a kind God shall encourage meat eating. It is not the animals that are to be given for oblation but our internal and external enemies like Kama(desire), Krodha(anger), lobha(greed), moha (delusion), mada(pride), matsarya( envy, material attachment). These are the animals one has to sacrifice.
Gomaansam bhojaye nnityam pibed amaravaaruneem tamahankuleenam anye itare kulaghaatukaaha gosabdenaaditaajihwaata taprasohitaaluni gomaansa bhakshana tantu mahaapaataka naasanam.
Hatha yoga pradeepika 3.47—48
The one who eats cow meat on daily basis and the one who drinks the nectar that oozes out of Moon are the highest class people. Rest are all lowest class people. Go sabda (cow) means tongue. To insert the folded tongue back into the gullet (khecharee mudra or posture) is called go maansabhakshanam i.e., eating cow meat. There will be feeling of sweetness in the throat while doing meditation in KHECHAREE MUDRA. This sweetness is called the nectar that oozes out of moon.
Praanaayama dwishatkena pratyaahaarascha prakeertitaha pratyaahaara dwishatkena jayate dhaaranaa subhaa dhaaranaa dwaadasa proktaa dhyaanam dhyaanavisaaradaha dhyaana dwaadasakenaiva samaadhim abhideeyate.
12 good praanayamas shall provide Pratyaaharam or make us unattached to senses. 144 good praanayamas shall provide Dharana or concentration. 20,736 good praanayamas shall provide Samadhi or trance.
Seven types of matter
Dravya, guna, karma, saamaanya, vishesha, samavaaya and Abhaava are the seven types of matter. This Dravya is of nine types. They are earth, water, fire, air, ether, time, sides, self and mind. Amongst these nine, the first viz., earth, water, fire, air and ether are called Panchabhootas or five vibratory elements. Guna means gnaana, desire, misery, pleasure and color etc., Karma means work. Saamaanya means species like mankind, animals and birds etc. visesha means difference(s) amongst the species like high yield cows and low yield cows etc. Samavaaya means both coexist. One is a compliment of other. Ex: sun and sun rays cannot be separated. Abhaava means expressionless state.
Vedam means the one which is heard. During meditation that vedam is heard. That is nothing but Omkaar. Vedas occurred to the sages during meditation like lightnings. There is no grammer for this Vedams heard during meditation. This vedams heard by sages is called DEVABHASHA. With this as basis sages made a language with phonetics and their origins. This is called Sanskrit. So vedam is not Sanskrit. So there will not be any changes in nthe Vedam.

To born as man/woman is our good karma. Only man can do and attain liberation with sadhana. Each and every day morning one must do kriyayoga as per his/her convenient time. It is really our good karma that we got a sadguru like Paramahansa Sri yogananda. Love thy neighbour more than as you love thyself. Our goal liberation is the highest. Do Karma without aspiring for any gain. That is Karmayoga.
