पूर्ण समर्पण क्या है ?

Hindi

एक साधक के लिए “समर्पण” को ठीक से समझना अति आवश्यक है। तामसिक प्रवृति के लोग अक्सर समर्पण से यह समझ लेते हैं कि कुछ ना करो और सब भगवान पर छोड़ दो। परंतु समर्पण का अर्थ इससे बहुत परे है। गीता में श्री कृष्ण भी अर्जुन को पूर्ण रूप से समर्पित होने का उपदेश देते हैं, लेकिन इसका मतलब यह नहीं की अर्जुन अपने शस्त्रों का त्याग कर दे। वह युध लड़ते हुए, उस क्षण में जो भी उचित है, वह सब करते हुए भी पूर्ण रूप से भगवान कृष्ण को समर्पित रहे । साधो सत्संग में हमारे मित्र श्री अनीश ने समर्पण की एक सुंदर व्याख्या दी। सत्य की जिज्ञासा रखने वाले हर साधक को चाहिए की वह सभी परिस्थितियों के प्रति पूर्ण स्वीकृति रखते हुए अपनी विवेक शक्ति के द्वारा स्थिति अनिसार उचित कर्म करता चले।

The 4 Brahma Viharas of Buddha (Hindi)

Hindi

Introduction to Buddha's Divine Virtues

Gautama Buddha talked about Brahma Viharas – the divine virtues that every seeker must embrace on the path to self-realization. Sri Anish took seekers through an elaborate process of unraveling these teachings of Buddha in an open Saadho satsangh last month where he also explained practical ways to cultivate these indispensable attributes as part of our sadhana (seeking).

Part 1 - Coming Soon

Maitri

Maitri, the way Buddha meant it, is “Loving kindness”, an unconditional bhaav that expands to all sentient beings as opposed to common understanding of “friendship” which is exclusive and transactional. True detachment can only happen in a state of pure Maitri, everything else leads to attachment. Sri Anish then introduced us to “Maitri Sadhana”, potent ways by which a saadhak can establish oneself step-by-step in the bhaav of Maitri – something which over time will give birth to the second virtue i.e. Karuna (compassion).

Part 2 - Coming Soon

Karuna

Unlayering the true meaning of Karuna, we realized it’s NOT the same as the feeling of pity or sympathy upon encountering someone in pain but rather it is the capacity to feel the dukha (suffering) of all beings, even the ones not around. Sri Anish pointed out that before the bhaav of Karuna surges in a saadhak, one must learn to decouple emotions from perceived dukha to retain one’s centering amidst all the suffering around.

Part 3 - Coming Soon

Mudita

Most sadhaks become overtly serious and dull in their journey as they ignore the all-important virtue of Mudita or Joyfulness. Sri Anish started off with laying down the different planes of Joyfulness we traverse through, starting from gross to subtle – Sensory joy –> Ego-driven joy –> Creative joy –> Collaborative joy –> Cosmic joy. Most humans never go beyond the first two planes of Joy (Sensory & Ego driven), as Saadhaks we need to constantly elevate ourselves to higher planes of joy through conscious practice of Seva bhav and Creative expressions.

Part 4 - Coming Soon

Upeksha

Upeksha, is the state of living in “sambhav” or “equanimity” towards the dualities of life. Sri Anish pointed out that the whole life is nothing but a play between forces of attraction and repulsion. With each of our action or thought, we are trying to either attract/acquire certain objects & experiences or repel/avoid certain others. The sadhana of Upeksha is all about transcending these opposite forces, and starting to live the life at the center, the “Madhya” where the silence resides. But the path to Upeksha goes through the first 3 brahma viharas of Maitri, Karuna & Mudita, so a seeker intending to establish himself in Upeksha must prepare his ground by imbibing the other three divine virtues first.

From Success to Significance (hindi)

Hindi

Why are we feeling so anxious when we have nothing to do in this lockdown ? Isn’t this what we always wanted – a break from work, a time to relax ?
