Philosophy - Freedom From Worldly Pain, (M. M.Kaushal) - Part 6

18.  Naasti Kartavyam AAtmanah
With the birth of a body start manifold activities of the individual which continue throughout life and the sum total of the activities of various kinds by the individuals is the World (Sansaar); but the cause of these physical bodies lies in the extraphysical forms which leave one body to acquire another. Just as the brain (Budhi) accepts or rejects certain objects according to needs during the existence of a body, the conscious (Jeevatamaa) along with the experiences of one(ending) life seeks another body to fulfil its needs and this process continues till the conscious is completely indifferent towards the worldly matters when leaving a body. This complete freedom of the conscious (Jeevatama) has been called Salvation (Moksha).

The activities of the physical body, on the other hand, not bounded by the needs of the conscious (Jeevaatmaa), depend upon other physical beings and factors in the Nature. That is why the result of every action is governed by Nature and the conscious (Jeevaatmaa) is a helpless onlooker. Though the conscious (Jeevaatmaa) guided by some aims selects a body yet the activities of the body are beyond its control as the body is another entity of the Super Conscious (Parmaatmaa). Hence, if the conscious (Jeevaatmaa) wants freedom from worldly pains it must be averse to the acquisition of physical form; which implies that conscious (Jeevaatmaa) has nothing to do in the world.

19. Saakshyam Kevalam
Having reached the conclusion " Conscious (Jeevaatmaa) has no duties in this world and Liberty (Moksha) is attained by remaining indifferent towards the world; " the Conscious (Jeevaatmaa) remains only a mere witness. For him(Jeevaatmaa), whatever is happening around him is a dramatic scene. It is now unto him to forget himself and to laugh and weep with the characters of the play like a passionate member of the audience or to watch the show unperturbed.

The knowledgeable (Aatmavid) who knows his true status as a witness only remains aloof. For him, there is neither comfort nor pain. He is neither overjoyed when someone is born nor is he sad over death. He is always calm and balanced. For him, his own body is just a strange machine which keeps working as long as the Super Conscious (Parmaatma) desires : whether the Doctor can keep the body healthy or not, it is His Super Conscious’ (Parmaatma) will only. All his(Aatmavid’s) activities are for the minimum needs of the body and he goes about the world observing the presence of the Almighty in everything.

The happiness of the aloof , indifferent and self content (Brahm Gianee), the knowledgeable, is amply praised in Taitriyopnishad and his grandeur is described in detail in Sukhmani Sahib and other scriptures.

20. Jeevanmuktashch Videhmuktah
Once the truth is realized the (Jeevatamaa), living being, is liberated in life and the worldly activities have no effect on him. All deeds done do not touch him. Living or not living has no importance for him. All the worldly acquisitions lose their charm for him, become useless, and he is unperturbed by their gain or loss.

He who has realized the truth finds the manifestation of the Almighty in all the dealings and acts as part of him. All his actions are devoted to the Supreme Conscious (Mahachchetanaa) so that, having no cause for happiness or sorrow , he watches the drama of Creation with joy and contentment.

He, according to Taitriya Upnishad declares,” Ahamannam! Ahamannam!! Ahamannaado Ahamannaadah!!”
Meaning that he knows that his body is a food for other creations as he himself uses them for food.

For the "knowledgeable", all the creation is a form of the creator "Brahma", so that he neither loves nor hates one. He never gets angry. Neither he has any wishes nor does he get greedy for anything. His ego and his misconceptions are totally destroyed , and he has no wish to be reborn so that he is unified with "Brahm" after death which is Liberation/"Moksha".

21. Hari Aum Tatsat
All doubts, happiness, sorrow and differences etc. vanish when this real knowledge, "Hari Aum Tatsat" that is the belief in permanent powers of the Almighty is established.

Nothing in the creation, movable/immovable, born from eggs, from earth, from water or from the womb of a female is permanent. Everything is changeable except that Immortal Almighty. Just as all ornaments and articles made of Gold are only Gold whatever the form maybe, in the same manner all creation is that Omnipresent Almighty called by any name in the beginning or middle or at the end.

This belief is above all forms of knowledge and we forget it and start placing our physical self as well as this worldly system on top priority. From this misconception arise all our temporary pleasures and pains. Hence, it is necessary to remember this basic truth continuously for liberty in life and after life. No other remedy like bathing in sacred waters, fasting and charity etc. leads to Salvation.

"Hari Aum Tatsat"

Prayer (Sanskrit)

Aum
Har Har Har Shambho,
Dehi me vairaagyam prabho,
Moksham cha bhav bandhanaat,
Drishtam mayaa nis-sarataa.
Hari Aum Tatsat. Hari Aum Tatsat.

(Hindi)

He Prabho,
He Shiv Shambho
Mujhe vairaagya pradaan karo
Tatha bhav bandhan se mukta karo
Maine (Sansar kee) nis-saarataa dekh lee. Keval prabhu he sat hain. Keval vahee sat hain.
