It would be more benifit if the procedure is also added against each mantra. Science in Vedas ; The core foundation of Hindu belief is that Vedas contain source of all knowledge — physical or metaphysical.

However in last odd years, this belief has come under scrutiny due to the advances that modern science claims to make. Shankaracharya is widely known for his teachings on Vedanta.

Bhaja Govindam - Lyrics and Meaning with Sadhguru's chant Animals, men and gods experience the pure consciousness as 'I.

Objects come into perception because of this consciousness. The mind, the senses and the body conceal the Self, though they receive light from it. They are like the clouds hiding the sun. The Yogi who meditates on the Self is my Guru. The Self, being Brahman, is the eternal Ocean of Bliss. An infinitesimal fragment of that Bliss nurtures Indra and other gods.

The sage attains realization by meditating on the Self with tranquil mind. He whose mind identifies with the Self is not only a knower of Brahman but Brahman Itself. His feet, irrespective of whose they are, are fit for worship even by Indra himself. Sankaracharya's CE male chauvinism and his change of heart, mind and spirit. He was seized by Saktas who argued on the greatness of Mother Goddess and Sakti.

This debate over the superiority of Siva over Sakti went on for days to the delight of Saivites and to the consternation of Saktas; Sankara won it every time.

He was once lying with his head towards the south and feet towards the north in utter physical exhaustion on a narrow path. He saw a girl come towards him asking him to move his legs, so that she could pass him to fetch water from Ganges. Sankara said, "O Mother, go on, jump over my legs if you want. I am not moving.

I am too tired to move my legs. The girl refused to jump over his body or legs and said, " O Brahmana, I cannot jump over a body of a Brahmana. Please move your legs.

There is no harm in jumping over me. Ignorance separates people as Brahmana, Ksatriya, Vaisya and Sudra. Everyone and everything is Brahman God. Jump over me and you will not incur any sin. The girl came back to Sankara who asked for water to quench his thirst. The girl said with a smile, " You are so near the water, go and get it yourself.

You said Sakti did not exist, didn't you? Siva is Sava dead without Sakti. It is like a wallet without money. Sankara was shaken by the tone and the meaning of the words. He shut his eyes and opened them to find waves of light in her eyes equal to a thousand suns and moons. He ran to hold her feet in reverence and seek refuge.

The Light and the girl disappeared. Disappearance of the Light shattered him; his Brahmajnana was shaken to its foundation; his pride was in tatters. He ran to the temple of Annapurna, crying "Mother.

Siva is Sava dead without Sakti power. In modern parlance, 'Money talks, BS walks.

This was sport of Devi, and Sankara was an important participant. If one sees Sakti in every one and everything, she is within your reach. An ideological adversary converts and becomes his disciple and successor.

More light than heat in Sankara's words. During his tour, Sankara was demolishing the opponents of Monism with well-placed explosive charges in the opponents well-structured arguments so much so they became converts to his philosophy of thought.


One such incident involved a husband-wife team of towering intellect, disputatious abrasiveness and royal patronage, which obviously gave them a Big Ego. Real life Mandana Misra was the worthy but older opponent and his wife Bharati served as the moderator. She devised a simple objective measure of heat fever generated in a person during an argument.

The one who generated more heat than light would be the loser. The loser would convert to the philosophy of the victor and his order of life.

I wish we settle our differences like this. She gave a flower garland one each for Sankara and Mandana. They wore their garlands and started their arguments and disputations.

In the mean time she went about doing her daily chores. They fired salvos and counter-salvos at each other; there was light and heat; this went on for eight days, until it reached a fever pitch. Mandana's hold on his tenets was climbing a slippery slope; he began to cling to the tenets of Sankara and felt helplessly to side with Sankara. Mandana's flowers showed signs of wilting, external and objective evidence that Mandana an incarnation of Brahma generated more heat than light in his arguments and disputations.

Sankara's flower garland was as fresh as the flowers on the living stem indicating that he kept his cool under fire, emitted more light than heat and saved the flowers from wilting. Bharati declared Sankara the winner against her hope and wish. Mandana in the blink of an eye shed his royal robe, donned the saffron robe of Sannyasin, became Sankara's disciple and later his real life successor.

Suresvara wrote many commentaries: Vartikas, Taitiriya, Brihadaranyaka Bhasyas, commentary of Dakshinamurthy Stotra and Panchikarana, a book on the teachings of Sankara Naishkarmya Siddhi Bharati though a fair moderator still had remnants of ego in her, did not accept Sankara's Monism and clung to the tenets of rituals. She was the incarnation of Sarasvati, the goddess of speech according to legend.

They launched verbal salvos at each other; Sankara sent bruising replies; her arguments were losing ground. As a married woman, she changed her tune and tactic and thought she would demolish bachelor Sankara on the art of conjugal love. She said to herself, "this time, I will get you good and supine.

By that time, the local king Amaru shuffled off his mortal coil leaving a bevy of inconsolable queens in the harem. Sankara saw the opportunity and by his yogic power left his body, entered the body of dead Amaru to every one's surprise, jumping from one chamber to the next like an Alpha Male, engaged in love-making of queens far beyond the range, scope and practice of Kama Sutra so much so Sankara had more intimate knowledge of the art of love than Bharati.

Soon to the consternation of the royal household, the erstwhile anabiotic king dropped dead for real from exhaustion of marathon love-making like the bee on its nuptial flight; Sankara left Amaru's body, reentered his own body under the watchful eyes of his disciples , and was ready for argument with Bharati with his new facile confidence and attitude, beat-you-in-your-own-game.

She posed delicate and intimate questions; his counterpoise was telling in its finesse. All her moves received instantaneous appropriate reciprocal fitting counter moves from Sankara. She accepted defeat, was impressed with Sankara's knowledge of the art of love but also the science of love and joined her husband as Sankara's disciple.

Even today, she is tall in her defeat in the temple in Sringeri. Devout followers of Sankara and Saradamba Bharati believe that the debate material of the type in Kamasutra, Havelock Ellis, and Masters and Johnson was invented, appended and integrated into the story by overzealous followers and admirers to prove that Sankara was an all-round expert in Tantric sex and Vaidic ways.

After his victorious debate tour, he went to Sringeri along with his disciple Mandana Misra to build a mutt and a temple. There he heard that his mother was seriously ill and went to perform the last rites in Kalladi.

He helped his mother in deathbed to have visions of Siva's Ganas and Vishnu's messengers. The local Nambhudiris forbade that a Sannyasi could do the funeral rites and forbade everyone offering help to Sankara.

Sankara carried the body to the backyard, created fire before him by his yogic power and cremated her body. He was back on his tour of the North, built Mutts in Dwaraka, went to Nepal and Kashmir, and later to Badrikesh where he built a temple for Narayana. He lived for 32 years on this earth and shuffled off his mortal coil, some say in a Himalayan cave, some say in Kanchi. Pandit N.

Does anybody know why God or whoever it is created these universes? What is His motive? The Vaishnavas say that Vishnu created this world and beings as a sport and amusement. Everyday is July 4th on a cosmic scale. Some say it is for his own edification and glorification.

Why do we have to suffer for His vanity, vainglory and self-edification? Some call God's act His love for humanity and beings. Wars, famines, natural disasters, genocides Then what is love? Sankara says the answer lies in Vedanta. It is Samsara--metempsychosis. Sankara believes that we are like plants. When the plant dies, it leaves behind a seed, from which new plant grows and the cycle repeats itself.

Bhaja Govindam भज गोविन्दम् in Sanskrit, Transliteration and Translation

Likewise, when man dies, he leaves behind Karma, a suitcase of his thoughts, words and deeds Subtle body. Karma has a long arm. You heard of death and taxes as certainty.

Karma is the third certainty that we don't think of. Karma's long arm reaches and touches you over many future births. Your present life is the Karmic fruit from the seed you left behind or planted in your previous birth.

Every thought, word and deed good and bad bear seed which grows as a plant, bear fruit, and leave a seed for future birth. The cycle goes on. How do we get rid of this seed? We can roast it so that it cannot germinate. Primer in Saiva Siddhanta. Once Karma comes to be a Null Entity, there is no more birth. You are liberated; you live in heaven with God Brahman.

According to Advaitic or Monistic philosophy, there is only one Reality, that is Brahman. This universe and beings have no reality. We live under the cloud of MAyA or illusion. MAyA is like a dream, which we know is not real when we wake up to god realization. When we rise above the clouds of Maya, the sunshine of Reality is on us.

We all know we should not chase a dream, a mirage or an illusion. Stop the chase. Stop chasing the world. Get off this world and come to realization of the Great Self or Universal Consciousness. That means you have to withdraw your senses from the objects of senses like the tortoise, which withdraws its organs under the shell. Why should we do that? Tell me why? Mind may generate a thought, thought may generate a word, and a word may generate a deed.

Thought, word, and deed generate Karma, which generates a seed. Karma is what you do with your hand a synonym for Karma , acts that may be good, bad or indifferent. They generate good Karma or bad Karma; these are acts that you do to your self or that some one else do to you. They are called Adhiatmika, Adhibhautica, and Adhidaivika Endogenous, Exogenous and Theogenous miseries: Internal in origin, like diseases; External in origin like what others do to you; and Divine in origin or unknown in origin, acts beyond your control.

BG02 All these come under the term Anubhava, Experience, which causes joy or misery. Misery is attending the School of Hard Knocks. This School inculcates the knowledge that there is Spirit which is Reality. In western parlance, it puts the fear of God in you.

It tells you that you are not the master of the universe. You live under His reign. You have no freedom to do what you will or want.

Your freedom is restricted; the restrictions are the five Kankucas. How is that? Our knowledge is limited: you cannot be a doctor, atomic scientist, rocket engineer, poet So is the case with other restricting Jackets.

In association with the five jackets, and becoming eligible to consume the fruits of Karma, the soul acquires the name of Purusha.

The School of Hard Knocks also makes one's impurities mature and fall elimination of impurities. Once that happens, spiritual Knowledge dawns on the aspirant and takes him or her to the Reality of Brahman. Sankara tells that this world is a product of Maya or illusion and attaining the Reality or Brahman is a process of elimination, and realizing the Truth. As you march forwards seeking Brahman, you come across a lot of things that declare, ' I am the Truth; I am god; you have to go through me to reach the Lord.

Definition by Swami Sivananda. Here is a false assumption on the part of the mind that it is the seer or doer. Ahamdhi, Ahampratyaya, Ahamkriya and Ahamkara are the words used by Sankara to explain, 'I am the seer, I am the doer and other acts that stress on 'I. The Self is the subject and the world is the object of knowledge. In fact the subject and object are one. You, the subject see an apple and you become the apple; if you don't become the apple, you cannot see the apple; thus the subject and object are one.

If the apple is seen, the Self atman is seeing it; the 'I' should know it is the Self that sees. It is not the body eyes that sees the apple but the spirit atman, the soul underlying it. When mental activity alone exists as in a dream, there is no validity and thus it amounts to illusion.

The mind perceives what is not there in a dream as real. It is PratibhAsika Illusory or just appearance, apparition or phantom. Once upon a time, a flock of sheep adopted a lion cub. You may say, 'Are you trying to pull wool over my eyes? One day a lion on the prowl saw the lion cub grazing on grass and bleating like a sheep Come on, are you kidding! The lion waited until the cub went to sleep. Gingerly, the lion woke up the cub and asked him what he was doing with the sheep.

He rebuked him saying that he was a lion cub. I am a sheep. The sheep-lion cub could not believe his eyes and bleated out saying that he looked like the visiting lion.

The visiting lion roared and asked the cub to roar like him. He tried and tried but could not emit a roar.

Bhajagovindam Lyrics

He bleated Is that right. After a few bleats, the sheep-lion cub roared Now, I believe you. He is not a sheep anymore. He is a lion How nice. He arrived at Knowledge. Knowledge is to know that you are the soul and not the body. Logic and reason is a preliminary tool for explanation of material knowledge, but an impediment and an imperfect instrument for insight into the spiritual knowledge. You are really the Atman or Soul.

The sheep-lion cub has always been a lion.You may say, 'Are you trying to pull wool over my eyes? This was sport of Devi, and Sankara was an important participant. Hardly is there anyone who yearns to be lost in Parabrahman. This universe and beings have no reality.

I am not moving. Chant the holy name of God and silence the turbulent mind. Then what is love?
