Philosophy - Freedom From Worldly Pain, (M. M.Kaushal) - Part 1

Philosophy - Freedom From Worldly Pain, (M. M.Kaushal) - Part 1

This compilation of twenty one short formulas to ‘Free the human life from pain’ in sanskrit was started and finished long before this preface was planned.

Though the first formula, in itself is a statement of the purpose of thought contained in these pages, yet, the force causing this compilation has to be pronounced in the preface as required for every literary work.

The only aim of this work was to put into one place all the knowledge that the undersigned gained from the study of Indian Spiritual Philosophy from 1996 to 1999. It was undertaken as labor of love to make these teachings from ancient thinkers available to the people in general who have no time and/or inclination to go through original scriptures, and to my near and dear ones in particular.

The common subject of all these teachings is Attainment of Peace in one’s life.

The pages were originally written along with the hindi equivalent; but the computer records are in English only which shall enable wider reach to all, who have interest, across the world.

Whether this attempt has some benefits, the readers alone can decide.

Om Shri Ganeshaaya Namah!!
(Respects to the Elephant God ‘Ganesha’. Also known as the destroyer of all hindrances, ‘Ganesha’ is remembered before any auspicious work /activity all over India)

1.  Jigyaasa Mokshaaya
The basic theme of the Ancient Indian Spiritualistic Philosophy has forever been “Moksha” or Freedom…..Freedom from What ?!? The Saankhya Masters pinpointed the aim as freedom from the three kinds of pain, namely :
1.   Agony from within
2.   Agony from External and Physical agencies
3.   Agony due to some Natural Calamities

The various thinkers blessed the people with their theories about the ways and means to "Moksha" from time to time and the writer of Srimad Bhagwad Geeta, the celebrated  Ved Vyasa tried to integrate all of them into one volume explaining each separately, therein. That is why Srimad Bhagwad Geeta has been proclaimed to be the most profound exposition of Indian Philosophy, not easily understood by a layman.

We try to summarize the theories given at length in different schools of philosophy with the aim of initiation of thought even if we fail to drive the philosophy home to the Common Man. Grasp of the meanings, after all, depends on the individual capacities. 

2.  Sansar Nivritti Mokshah

How can one be free from the three types of pain mentioned above?

Till such time the ‘man’ is not free from this world, his freedom from pain is impossible. Everyday life problems and happenings bring some pain or the other for us. We try to get rid of one form of pain then we face another.

Don’t we feel that we were born in this world for pain only? Mahatama Budha said, “ The World is an abode of Sorrow”. It is possible that a penniless person feels that a wealthy man is quite happy while that moneyed one may not be so, in-spite of all his wealth. The poor man is troubled as he does not get his daily bread. On the other hand, the rich man may be suffering from lack of appetite or indigestion.
All of us must agree that everyone in this creation has some pain, which implies that comfort lies only in getting away from the world.

Does it mean that we have to die for this? What if we are reborn? If not reborn – what use is this freedom after death?
