ಶ್ರೀರಾಮಕೃಷ್ಣರ ಮಾತಿನಿಂದ ಅಹಂಕಾರವನ್ನೇ ಕಳೆದುಕೊಂಡ.

ಶ್ರೀರಾಮಕೃಷ್ಣರ ಮಾತಿನಿಂದ ಅಹಂಕಾರವನ್ನೇ ಕಳೆದುಕೊಂಡ.


        ಮನುಷ್ಯ ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ ಸಾಧಿಸಿದರೂ ಸಾಕು ಅಹಂ ಎನ್ನುವುದು ಸಹಜವಾಗಿ ಬರುತ್ತದೆ. ಅದು ಎಲ್ಲಿವರೆಗೆ ಎಂದರೆ ಆತನಿಗೆ ಇನ್ನೊಬ್ಬರು ನೀನು ಸಾಧಿಸಿರುವುದು ಏನೂ ಅಲ್ಲ, ಬರೀ ಅತ್ಯಲ್ಪ ಎಂದು ಸಾಬೀತುಪಡಿಸಿ ತಿಳಿವಳಿಕೆ ಹೇಳುವವರೆಗೂ ಅಹಂಭಾವ ಕಡಿಮೆಯೇ ಆಗುವುದಿಲ್ಲ. ಪ್ರಾಧ್ಯಾಪಕನಾಗಿದ್ದ ಮಹೇಂದ್ರನಾಥನಿಗೂ ಇದೇ ಪರಿಸ್ಥಿತಿ ಇತ್ತು. 


         ಬ್ರಾಹ್ಮಸಮಾಜದ ಪ್ರಭಾವಕ್ಕೊಳಗಾಗಿದ್ದ ಮಹೇಂದ್ರನಾಥನಿಗೆ, ಮೂರ್ತಿ ಪೂಜೆ, ಸಾಕಾರ ತತ್ತ್ವದಲ್ಲಿ ನಂಬಿಕೆ ಇರಲಿಲ್ಲ. ನಿರಾಕಾರದಲ್ಲೇ ನಂಬುಗೆ ಜಾಸ್ತಿ.  ಅದಕ್ಕೆ ಶ್ರೀರಾಮಕೃಷ್ಣರು, ನಿರಾಕಾರದಲ್ಲಿ ನಿನಗೆ ವಿಶ್ವಾಸವೆಂದರೆ ಒಳ್ಳೆಯದು. ಆದರೆ ನಿರಾಕಾರವೊಂದೇ ಸತ್ಯ. ಸಾಕಾರ ತತ್ತ್ವ ಸತ್ಯವಲ್ಲ ಎಂದು ಭಾವಿಸಬೇಡ ಎಂದಿದ್ದರು.


          ಆಗ ಮಣ್ಣಿನ ಮೂರ್ತಿ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ತಗಾದೆ ತೆಗೆದಿದ್ದ. ಮಣ್ಣಿನಲ್ಲೇನು ದೇವರು ಇರುತ್ತಾನೆಯೇ? ಮಣ್ಣಿನ ಪೂಜೆ ಮಾಡುವವರಿಗೆ ಇದನ್ನು ತಿಳಿಸಬೇಕು ಎಂದೆಲ್ಲ ಗುರುಗಳಿಗೆ ಹೇಳಿದ್ದ ಮಹೇಂದ್ರನಾಥ. 

ಅದಕ್ಕೆ ಶ್ರೀರಾಮಕೃಷ್ಣರು, ಮಣ್ಣಿನ ಮೂರ್ತಿ ಎಂದೇಕೆ ಹೇಳುತ್ತಿ. ಅದು ಚಿನ್ಮಯ ಮೂರ್ತಿ.  ಇಡೀ ಬ್ರಹ್ಮಾಂಡವನ್ನೇ ಸೃಷ್ಟಿಸಿದ್ದು ಭಗವಂತ.  

         ತನ್ನನ್ನು ಯಾವ ರೀತಿ ಪೂಜಿಸಬೇಕೆಂಬುದನ್ನು ಜನರಿಗೆ ತಿಳಿಸಿಕೊಡದಿರುತ್ತಾನೇನು? ಮಣ್ಣಿನ ಮೂರ್ತಿ ಮೂಲಕ ಪೂಜಿಸುವುದು ತನಗೆ ಎಂಬುದು ಆತನಿಗೆ ಗೊತ್ತಿರುವುದಿಲ್ಲವೇ? ಆ ಬಗೆಯ ಪೂಜೆಯಿಂದಲೇ ಅವನು ಸಂತೃಷ್ಟನಾಗುತ್ತಾನೆ. 


       ಆ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಚಿಂತಿಸದೇ ನಿನ್ನೊಳಗಿನ ಜ್ಞಾನವನ್ನು ಬೆಳೆಸಿಕೋ. ಆ ಭಗವಂತನನ್ನು ಸಾಕ್ಷಾತ್ಕರಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳಲು ಪ್ರಯತ್ನಿಸು ಎಂದು ತಿಳಿ ಹೇಳಿದ್ದರು. ಇದೇ ರೀತಿ ಎರಡ್ಮೂರು ಉದಾಹರಣೆ‌ ಕೊಟ್ಟು ಅಹಂಗೆ ಪೆಟ್ಟು ಕೊಟ್ಟಿದ್ದರು.


        ಆಗ ಮಹೇಂದ್ರನಾಥನ ಅಹಂಭಾವವವೆಲ್ಲ ಮಾಯವಾಗಿತ್ತು. ಭಗವಂತನ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಜನರಿಗೆ ಬುದ್ಧಿ ಹೇಳಲು ತನಗೇನು ಅರ್ಹತೆ ಇದೆ? ತಾನೇನು ಭಗವಂತನನ್ನು ಸಾಕ್ಷಾತ್ಕರಿಸಿಕೊಂಡಿದ್ದೇನೆಯೇ? ಎಂಬ ಯೋಚನೆಯನ್ನು ಮಾಡಲಾರಂಭಿಸಿದ. ಜತೆಗೆ ಅಷ್ಟು ದಿನ ಬರೀ ನಿರಾಕಾರವನ್ನಷ್ಟೇ ನಂಬುತ್ತಿದ್ದ ಮಹೇಂದ್ರನಾಥ, ಬಳಿಕ ಸಾಕಾರ ತತ್ವಕ್ಕೂ ಅಷ್ಟೇ ಮಹತ್ವ ಕೊಡಲಾರಂಭಿಸಿದ.


       ಆತನ ಮನಸ್ಸಿನಲ್ಲಿದ್ದ ಅಹಂಭಾವವನ್ನೆಲ್ಲ ಕ್ಷಣಮಾತ್ರದಲ್ಲೇ ಶ್ರೀರಾಮಕೃಷ್ಣರು ಬರೀ ತಮ್ಮ ಮೊನಚಾದ ಮಾತುಗಳಿಂದಲೇ ಇಲ್ಲವಾಗಿಸಿದ್ದರು. ಆ ಬಳಿಕವಷ್ಟೇ ತನ್ನಲ್ಲಿನ ಗೊಂದಲಗಳನ್ನು ಬಗೆಹರಿಸಿಕೊಂಡು ಆಧ್ಯಾತ್ಮಿಕತೆಯತ್ತ ಒಲವು ಹೆಚ್ಚಾಗಿ ಅದರಲ್ಲಿ ಸಾಧನೆ ಮಾಡಲು ಶುರು ಮಾಡಿದ.

ಭಗವಂತನ ಪ್ರಾಪ್ತಿಯ ಸಾಧನಗಳು.

ಭಗವಂತನ ಪ್ರಾಪ್ತಿಯ ಸಾಧನಗಳು:


         ಭಗವಂತ ಹಾಗೂ ನಾವು ಇವರ ಮಧ್ಯದಲ್ಲಿ ಅಭಿಮಾನದ ಪರದೆಯಿರುತ್ತದೆ, ಇದು ದೂರವಾಯಿತೆಂದರೆ ನಮಗೆ ಲ್ಭಗವತ್ಪ್ರಾಪ್ತಿ   ಯಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. ಇದು ದೂರವಾಗುವದಕ್ಕೆ ಅನೇಕ ಮಾರ್ಗಗಳಿರುತ್ತವೆ. ಕರ್ಮಯೋಗ, ಹಠಯೋಗ, ರಾಜಯೋಗ ಮುಂತಾದ ಮಾರ್ಗಗಳಿಂದ ಇದು ಅಷ್ಟು ಬೇಗನೆ ದೂರವಾಗುವದಿಲ್ಲ, ಆದರೆ ಒಮ್ಮೊಮ್ಮೆ ಬೆಳೆಯ ಲೂಬಹುದು. ಭಕ್ತಿಮಾರ್ಗವು ಸುಲಭವಿರುತ್ತದೆ. ಭಕ್ತಿಯೆಂದರೆ ಭಗವಂತನಿಗೆ ಅಭಿಮಾನರಹಿತನಾಗಿ ಅನನ್ಯಭಾವನೆಯಿಂದ ಶರಣಹೋಗುವದು, ಭಗವಂತನವರಾಗಿ ಇರುವದು, ಭಗವಂತನ ಹೊರತಾಗಿ ಏನೂ ಕಾಣದಿರುವದು ಹಾಗೂ ಸರ್ವತ್ರ ಭಗವ ದಸ್ತಿತ್ವವೇ ಅನುಭವಕ್ಕೆ ಬರುವದು. ಇಂಥ ಭಕ್ತಿಯು ಪ್ರಾಪ್ತವಾಗುವ ಮಾರ್ಗವೆಂದರೆ ಸರ್ವಕರ್ತೃತ್ವವನ್ನು ಭಗವಂತನ ಕಡೆಗೆ ಕೊಡುವದು, ಎಲ್ಲವೂ ಅವನ ಇಚ್ಚೆಯಿಂದಲೇ ನಡೆಯುತ್ತದೆ ಎಂದು ತಿಳಿಯುವದು ಹಾಗೂ ನಮ್ಮ ಪ್ರತಿಯೊಂದು ಕ್ರಿಯೆಯನ್ನು ಅವನಿಗೆ ಸಮರ್ಪಣ ಮಾಡುವದು. ಹೀಗೆ ಮಾಡುವುದರಿಂದ ನಮ್ಮ ಅಭಿಮಾನವು ಬೇಗನೆ ದೂರವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. ಇದು ಸಾಧಿಸದಿದ್ದರೆ ಗುರ್ವಾಜ್ಞೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಇರಬೇಕು. ಅಂದರೆ ನಮ್ಮ ಮಾನ, ಅಭಿಮಾನ, ಬುದ್ಧಿವಂತಿಕೆ ಇವೆಲ್ಲವನ್ನೂ ಗಂಟುಕಟ್ಟಿಟ್ಟು, ಗುರುಗಳು ಹೇಳಿದಂತೆ ಯಾವದೇ ನೆಪಹೇಳದೆ ನಡೆಯಬೇಕು. ಇದೂ ಕೂಡ ಸಾಧಿಸದಿದ್ದರೆ, ಸಂತರ ಹತ್ತಿರ ಕೇವಲ ಬಿದ್ದುಕೊಂಡಿರಬೇಕು. ಅವರ ಉಪದೇಶದಿಂದ, ಸಹವಾಸದಿಂದ ಅಭಿಮಾನವು ನಿಧಾನವಾಗಿ ಕಡಿಮೆಯಾಗುತ್ತದೆ.

   

         ಭಕ್ತಿಯನ್ನು ಎರಡು ಪ್ರಕಾರದಿಂದ ನಿರ್ಮಾಣ ಮಾಡಿಕೊಳ್ಳಲು ಬರುತ್ತದೆ, ಮೊದಲನೇ ಪ್ರಕಾರವೆಂದರೆ ಎಲ್ಲವನ್ನು ಬಿಟ್ಟು ಕೌಪೀನಧಾರಿಗಳಾಗಿ, “ಹೇ ಭಗವಂತನೆ"  ನೀನು ನನಗೆ ಭೆಟ್ಟಿಯಾದಾಗಲೇ ಏಳುತ್ತೇನೆ”  ಎಂಬ ನಿಗ್ರಹದಿಂದ ಕುಳಿತುಕೊಳ್ಳಬೇಕು. ಈ ಮಾರ್ಗವು ಕಠಿಣವಿರುತ್ತದೆ. ಇದು ಪ್ರಾಪಂಚಿಕರಿಗೆ ಸಾಧಿಸುವದಿಲ್ಲ. ಎರಡನೆಯ ಪ್ರಕಾರವೆಂದರೆ, ಸಹವಾಸದಿಂದ ಭಕ್ತಿನಿರ್ಮಾಣ ಮಾಡಿಕೊಳ್ಳುವದು, ಭಗವಂತನ ಗುಣವರ್ಣನೆ ಓದುವದು, ಅವನ ಗುಣಗಳನ್ನೇ ಶ್ರವಣ ಮಾಡುವದು, ಅವನ ದರ್ಶನಕ್ಕೆ ಹೋಗುವದು, ಪ್ರತಿಯೊಂದು ಕೃತಿಯನ್ನು ಭಗವಂತನಿಗಾಗಿಯೇ ಮಾಡುವದು, ಪ್ರತಿಯೊಂದು ಕೃತಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಅವನ ಸ್ಮರಣೆ ಮಾಡುವದು, ಈ ರೀತಿ ಅವನ ಅಖಂಡಸಹವಾಸ ಹೊಂದುವದರಿಂದ ಭಗವಂತನ ವಿಷಯದಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ರೇಮ ನಿರ್ಮಾಣವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. ವಿಷಯಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ಮಾಡಿದ ಭಕ್ತಿಯು ನಿಜವಾದ ಭಕ್ತಿಯಾಗಲಾರದು. ಭಗವತ್ಸೇವೆಯು  ನಿಷ್ಕಾಮವಾಗಿರಬೇಕು, ಏಕೆಂದರೆ ಭಕ್ತಿಯೆಂದರೆ ಸಂಲಗ್ನವಾಗುವದು. ನಾನು ವಿಷಯದೊಂದಿಗೆ ಸಂಲಗ್ನವಾಗಿರುತ್ತೇನೆ. ಆದ್ದರಿಂದ ಅದು ವಿಷಯದ ಭಕ್ತಿಯಾಗಿರುತ್ತದೆ, ಭಗವಂತನದಾಗುವದಿಲ್ಲ. ಆದ್ದರಿಂದ ನಾವು ಮಾಡುವದು ಭಗವಂತನ ಸೇವೆಯಾಗದೆ ವಿಷಯದಸೇವೆ ಎಂಬುವದು ನಿಶ್ಚಿತವಾದಂತಾಯಿತು, ಅಂದರೆ ನಾನು ವಿಷಯದ ಗುಲಾಮನಾದೆನು. ವಿಷಯಗಳ ಗುಲಾಮನಾಗಿ ನಾನು ವಿಷಯಗಳನ್ನು ಹೇಗೆ ಅನುಭವಿಸಬಲ್ಲೇ? ನಾವು ಒಡೆತನದಿಂದ ವಿಷಯಗಳನ್ನು ಅನುಭವಿಸಬೇಕು. ಸಂತ, ಭಗವಂತ ಇವರು ನಿರತಿಶಯ ಸುಖ ಕೊಡುವವರಿರುತ್ತಾರೆ. ಅವರ ಹತ್ತಿರ ವಿಷಯವನ್ನು ಬೇಡಿದೆವೆಂದರೆ  ರಾಮನ ಹತ್ತಿರ ಭಿಕ್ಷೆಯ ಜೋಳಿಗೆ ಬೇಡಿದಷ್ಟೇ ಹುಚ್ಚುತನದ್ದಾಗುವದಿಲ್ಲವೆ? ನಾವು ಸೇವೆಯ ಫಲವನ್ನು ಅಪೇಕ್ಷಿಸಿ ಭಗವಂತನನ್ನು ದೂರ ಮಾಡುತ್ತೇವೆ. ಭಗವಂತನ ಪ್ರಾಪ್ತಿಯೇ ನಮ್ಮ ಜೀವನದ ಧ್ಯೇಯವೆಂಬುದನ್ನು ನಿಶ್ಚಯಿಸಿ, ನಾವು ಯಾವಾಗಲೂ ಅದರ ಸುತ್ತಲೂ ಸುತ್ತುತ್ತಿರಬೇಕು. ಭಗವಂತನಲ್ಲಿ ಲೀನವಾದವೆಂದರೆ ತಿರುಗಿ ಬರುವದಿಲ್ಲವೆಂಬುದನ್ನು ಲಕ್ಷ್ಯದಲ್ಲಿಟ್ಟುಕೊಳ್ಳಬೇಕು.



  *ಮುಖ್ಯ ವಿಚಾರ*  

  

 ಭಗವಂತನ ಪ್ರಾಪ್ತಿಗೆ ಅಡ್ಡ ಬರುವ ವಿಷಯವು ದೂರವಾಗಬೇಕೆಂಬ ತಳಮಳವು ಯಾರಿಗೆ ಹತ್ತುತ್ತದೆಯೋ ಅವರ ಸಾಧನೆಯು ಸರಿಯಾಗಿ ನಡೆದಿರುತ್ತದೆ.

ಪರನಿಂದೆ, ವಿದ್ಯೆಯ ಅಭಿಮಾನ ನಮ್ಮನ್ನು ದೇವರಿಂದ ದೂರಮಾಡುತ್ತವೆ.

10/17/2023 02:54:00 pm

ಪರನಿಂದೆ, ವಿದ್ಯೆಯ ಅಭಿಮಾನ ನಮ್ಮನ್ನು ದೇವರಿಂದ ದೂರಮಾಡುತ್ತವೆ.

       ಪರನಿಂದೆಯಂಥ ಪಾಪವಿಲ್ಲ ನಿಂದೆ ಮಾಡುವ ಪರಿಪಾಠವು ಬಹಳ ಅನುಚಿತವಾಗಿರುತ್ತದೆ, ಅದರಿಂದ ನಮ್ಮ ಸ್ವಂತದ ಹಾನಿಯಾಗುತ್ತದೆ . ಮತ್ತೊಬ್ಬರಿಗೆ ದುಃಖವಾಗಬೇಕೆಂದು ಮನುಷ್ಯನು ಪರನಿಂದೆ ಮಾಡುತ್ತಾನೆ, ಆದರೆ ಅದನ್ನು ಕೇಳಲು ಅವನು ಅಲ್ಲಿ ಉಪಸ್ಥಿತನೆಲ್ಲಿರುತ್ತಾನೆ? ಅಂದಮೇಲೆ ಇದರಲ್ಲಿ ನಾವು ಏನು ಸಾಧಿಸಿದಂತಾಯಿತು? ನಿಂದೆಯಿಂದ ನಮ್ಮ ಮನಸ್ಸೇ ದೂಷಿತವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. ದೂಷಿತಮನಸ್ಸು ಅಥವಾ ದುಷ್ಕರ್ಮವೇ ಮನುಷ್ಯನನ್ನು ಪರನಿಂದೆಗೆ ಪ್ರವೃತ್ತಗೊಳಿಸುತ್ತದೆ. ಯಾರಿಗೆ ಪರನಿಂದೆ  ಮಧುರವೆನಿಸುತ್ತದೋ ಅವರು ತಮಗೆ ಭಗವಂತನು ಇನ್ನೂ ಬಹಳ ದೂರವಿರುತ್ತಾನೆಂದು ತಿಳಿಯಬೇಕು. ಖಾರವು ಖಾರವೆನಿಸಿದರೆ, ಹಾವಿನ ವಿಷವು ಇಳಿಯತೊಡಗಿದ್ದರ ಲಕ್ಷಣವಾಗಿರುವಂತೆ, ಪರನಿಂದೆಯು ಮಧುರವೆನಿಸದಂತಾಯಿತಂದರೆ ದೇವರು ಹತ್ತಿರ ಬರತೊಡಗಿದನೆಂದು ತಿಳಿಯಬೇಕು. ಆದ್ದರಿಂದ ಯಾರಿಗೆ ತಮ್ಮ ಹಿತಮಾಡಿಕೊಳ್ಳಬೇಕೆಂದು ಅನಿಸುವದೋ, ಅವರು ಪರನಿಂದೆಯನ್ನು ಬಿಟ್ಟು ತಮ್ಮ ನಾಲಿಗೆಯನ್ನು ನಾಮಕ್ಕೆ ಸಮರ್ಪಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳಬೇಕು  ಭಗವಂತನ ಮಾರ್ಗದಲ್ಲಿ ಹೋಗುವವರು, ಮತ್ತೊಬ್ಬರಲ್ಲಿ ಕಾಣುವ ದೋಷಗಳ ಬೀಜಗಳು ನಮ್ಮಲ್ಲಿಯೇ ಇರುತ್ತವೆ ಎಂದು ತಿಳಿದುಕೊಂಡು ವ್ಯವಹರಿಸಬೇಕು ಹಾಗೂ ಅವಗುಣಗಳ ಮೂಲವನ್ನು ನಮ್ಮ ಅಂತಃಕರಣದಿಂದ ತೆಗೆದು ಹಾಕಿ, ಅಲ್ಲಿ ಭಗವಂತನ ನಾಮದ ಬೀಜವನ್ನು ಬಿತ್ತಬೇಕು.

     

         ಅನೇಕ ವೇಳೆ ನಮ್ಮ ದೋಷಗಳು ನಮಗೇ ತಿಳಿಯುತ್ತವೆ ಹಾಗೂ ಅವು ಭಗವಂತನಿಗೆ ಅಡ್ಡಬರುತ್ತವೆಂದು ಕೂಡ ತಿಳಿಯುತ್ತದೆ. ಆದರೆ ನಮಗೆ ಅವುಗಳ ವಿಷಯದಲ್ಲಿ ಏನೂ ಮಾಡಲು ಬರುವದಿಲ್ಲ. ಉದಾಹರಣೆಗೆ, ಕೆಲವು ಜನರ ದೃಷ್ಟಿಯು ಅತ್ಯಂತ ಬಾಧಕವಿರುತ್ತದೆ. ಯಾವದಾದರೊಂದು ಉತ್ತಮವಸ್ತು ಅಥವಾ ವಿಷಯಗಳನ್ನು ನೋಡಿದರೆ ಅದು ಕೂಡಲೇ ಕೆಟ್ಟುಹೋಗುತ್ತದೆ. ಇಂಥ ದೋಷಗಳು ಅವರಿಗೆ ಸ್ವತಃ ಸುಧಾರಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳಲು ಬರುವದಿಲ್ಲ. ಆದರೆ ಸತ್ಸಂಗತಿ ಲಭಿಸಿದರೆ ಮಾತ್ರ ಇಂಥ ದೋಷಗಳೂ ಕೂಡ ಸುಧಾರಿಸುತ್ತವೆ. ಇದೇ ಸಂತಸಂಗತಿಯ ಮಹಿಮೆಯಾಗಿರುತ್ತದೆ. ಮನುಷ್ಯನು ಸ್ವಭಾವತಃ ತನ್ನ ದೋಷ ಬೆಳೆಸುವದರ ಪ್ರಯತ್ನವನ್ನೇ ಮಾಡುತ್ತಿರುವದರಿಂದಲೇ ಜೀವನವು ಸುಖಮಯವಾಗುವದಿಲ್ಲ. ಅವನು ಮತ್ತೊಬ್ಬರ ದೋಷಗಳನ್ನು ತೋರಿಸಬಲ್ಲನು. ಆದರೆ ಅವನಿಗೆ ತನ್ನ ಸ್ವತದ ದೋಷ ತಿಳಿಯುವುದಿಲ್ಲ.

         

        ವಿದ್ಯೆಯು ಅನೇಕ ವೇಳೆ ಮನುಷ್ಯನನ್ನು ಭಗವಂತನಿಂದ ದೂರ ಒಯ್ಯುತ್ತದೆ . ವಾರಕರಿಪಂಥದಲ್ಲಿಯ ದಡ್ಡಜನರು ವಿಠಲ, ವಿಠಲ  ಅನ್ನುತ್ತ ಭಗವಂತನನ್ನು ಹೊಂದುವರು, ಆದರೆ ಜಾಣರು ಪರಮಾರ್ಥದ ಪುಸ್ತಕಗಳನ್ನು ಓದಿಯೂ ಕೂಡ ಅವನನ್ನು ಅರಿಯುವದಿಲ್ಲ. ಮನೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಬದಾಮು ಹಾಗೂ ಉತ್ತತ್ತಿ ತುಂಬಿದ ಚೀಲಗಳನ್ನು ಇಟ್ಟಿರುತ್ತದೆ. ಆದರೂ ಆ ಪದಾರ್ಥಗಳು ನಮ್ಮ ಅಸ್ಥಿಮಾಂಸಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಹೋಗಿ ರಕ್ತದಲ್ಲಿ ಒಂದಾಗುವವರೆಗೂ ಅವುಗಳ ಉಪಯೋಗವಾಗುವದಿಲ್ಲ. ಅದರಂತೆ ಪುಸ್ತಕೀಯ ಜ್ಞಾನದ ಪರ್ಯವಸಾನವು ಆಚರಣೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಬರದಿದ್ದರೆ ಅದೆಲ್ಲವೂ ವ್ಯರ್ಥವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ. ಭಗವಂತನಿಗಾಗಿ ಯಾರೂ ಕಷ್ಟಪಡಬೇಕಾಗಿಲ್ಲ, ಅದು ಕಷ್ಟಸಾಧ್ಯ ವಿಷಯವಲ್ಲ. ಅದು ಸಾತ್ವಿಕ ಪ್ರೇಮದಿಂದ ಸಾಧ್ಯವಾಗುವದಾಗಿರುತ್ತದೆ ಮತ್ತು ಪ್ರೇಮದಲ್ಲಿ ಕಷ್ಟವನ್ನು ಮನುಷ್ಯನು ಕೂಡಲೇ ಮರೆತುಬಿಡುತ್ತಾನೆ. ನೀವು ಭಗವಂತನ ಪ್ರೇಮದಿಂದ ತುಂಬಿಹೋಗಿರಿ, ಅನ್ಯೋನ್ಯರಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ರೇಮವನ್ನು ಬೆಳೆಸಿರಿ. ಅಂದರೆ ಜಗತ್ತೆಲ್ಲವೂ ಆನಂದಮಯ, ಪ್ರೇಮಮಯವಾಗಿ ಕಾಣುತ್ತದೆ ಹಾಗೂ ಕೊನೆಗೆ ನಿಮಗೆ ನಿಮ್ಮ ವಿಸ್ಮರಣೆಯಾಗುತ್ತದೆ.

Guru-the lover of devotees | Guru parampara

Guru-the lover of devotees.
Guru-the lover of devotees.
Guru Is God

      Guru is God. Of course, there is a lot of difference between the Guru and the Gods we worship. We vow to give or do something to the Gods, pray to them and worship them. They fulfill our desires and we feel satisfied, But the Gods fulfill only our worldly desires which again involves us in karma and prolong our worldly desires and miseries.

        🔹 Guru is not like this. He gives what is permanent. We need not even go to him and beg him. He fulfills the desires of his devotees even before they are asked. He knows what is in the minds of his devotees - their desires, aspirations, intentions and purpose of their becoming his devotees and also everything else. Whatever the devotee desires in his mind, he more than fulfills them. He makes the devotee to feel that he has had enough of such petty things, and to plead with him not to fulfill all his desires.

       🔹 Guru ends all desires. He makes the devotee understand what he should desire and what he should not. If the is excessively attached to anything he makes him leave it. He frees him from his narrow and selfish love and makes him love more and more people and finally everyone equally. At this stage he leaves him free to show his love and affection to whomsoever he wants and in whichever way he wants.

        ▪️ Whatever Guru does is always for the good of the devotees. If they do not become good and loving easily he will not mind scolding and hurting
their feelings and even punishing them to bring them to the right path. Afterwards, like a grafted tree, they change their ways completely and become totally transformed.

     🔹  Guru is All-powerfull. He can do anything-get things done even by a corpse, which has to be cremated the next morning. Guru makes one
undergo lot of difficulties and sufferings in the beginning. Afterwards he makes him totally forget all the sufferings he underwent and live in joy and bliss. How could one who is not at all hungry relish and enjoy good foo Guru knows how to keep his devotee in joy and happiness.

        ▪️ The devotee should also have intense love for his Guru. He should be strong in his conviction that he wants only the Guru and nothing else. That is real devotion for the Guru. If one's devotion for the Guru is only for getting his worldly desires then that devotion becomes 'Adulterated Devotion'. It is like marrying a barren woman and desiring progeny.

The Life-force Related To Sexual vital Fluid.

The Life-force Related To Sexual vital Fluid

The Life-force Related To Sexual vital Fluid.


         A spiritual aspirant and prospective meditator on the life-force should further understand how the life-force exists and works within the body. By the metabolic routines, the food consumed is transformed through nine successive stages: 1) Juice, 2) blood, 3) flesh; 4) fat; 5) bone; 6) marrow; 7) sexual vital fluid; 8) energy particles coated with vital fluid; and 9) bio-magnetism, these all evolve from one another in the above order.


        From marrow, vital fluid is formed and from this the life-energy particles are attracted and isolated. The major portion of marrow in human beings is the brain. Until the age of physical maturity, a greater portion of the sexual vital fluid and life-force particles remain in the brain. After maturity when the vital fluid becomes surplus, gradually it comes down and is stored in the sex glands. Until maturity the working centre of the life-force is in the brain. As the vital fluid gets sufficiently stocked in the sex glands, simultaneously the life-force particles are also intensified there.


        At this juncture one more natural secret is to be understood. By the self-rotative force of the Earth, heavier things are drawn inwards, towards the centre, and lighter things are thrown out towards the periphery. Therefore, unless held by a proper chemical fluid all the free energy particles are thrown away from the Earth. The life-force particles in living beings also come under this same principle. The sexual vital fluid is the wonderful chemical compound which is able to hold a certain quantity of life-force particles. Thus, wherever sexual vital fluid is stored, there the life-force is intensified. Although the life-force particles are pervading the entire physical body, the working centre of its circulation remains in the brain up to maturity, i.e. age 12 or so. After that age, the working centre is gradually changed to the sex gland, which in Yogic terminology is called "Mooladhar".


       In fact, after maturity both places, brain as well as Mooladhar will be working centres. But according to one's method of living and behaviour, one center may work predominantly. For humanitarians, research scholars and spiritual aspirants invariably the brain will be the main working center of life-force. For others the center will be in the sexual glands. For progress in spiritual development and to do meditation on the life-force, the working centre should be shifted to the head by a master who is well-trained and experienced in energy meditation.

 Second incarnation of lord Dattatreya

Om Shri AtriVaradaayaNamaha

           Maharshi Atri was consuming air on the Mountain Ruksha and was worshipping Yogiraja, the form of knowledge, with severe austere exercise. As a result of that austere exercise of tapas, a divine unbearable brilliance emitted from his head. That brilliance spread to all the universes and made everybody terrified of that. The Trio of Gods appeared in front of Maharshi Atri. Atri then offered arghyam water and prayed to them.


      Atri then asked them "I have been worshipping only one ParaBrahma, how did you three come?"


       The Trinity of Gods then said "We are the glories of single ParaBrahma. There is no difference among us. Difference is only for running the universe. Worship our united form only."


      In the very next moment Yogiraja appeared. He showed Himself with three faces and six arms. He Himself is Atri Varada.


       First day of the waning fortnight of Karthika month on Thursday - Rohini star - Sunrise time.


       He bore Akshamala - string of beads, Kamandala - small water pot, Shoola- Spear, Dhamaruka - small double sided drum, Shankha - Conch, Chakra - Wheel. In this form, the right portion is the form of SatGuru, and the left portion is the form of ParaBrahma.


        Atri varadha should be worshipped on the first day of the waning fortnight in Karthika month. water as arghya should be offered thrice. Bananas should be offered to the deity and should be offered as oblation.

Meditation is a universal practice | How to Deepen meditation practice in the USA.

       Meditation is a universal practice that can be pursued in various ways and settings, including in the United States. Here are steps to help you start or deepen your meditation practice in the USA:


Learn About Meditation:

Start by learning about meditation. There are many books, online courses, and resources available that introduce different meditation techniques and philosophies. Explore various types of meditation, such as mindfulness, transcendental meditation, loving-kindness meditation, and more, to find what resonates with you.


Find a Suitable Location:

Choose a quiet and comfortable place where you can meditate without distractions. It could be a room in your home, a corner of your bedroom, or a peaceful spot in a nearby park. Creating a dedicated space for meditation can help establish a routine.


Set a Regular Schedule:

Consistency is key to a successful meditation practice. Decide on a regular time to meditate each day. Whether it's in the morning, during a lunch break, or before bedtime, having a fixed schedule can make it easier to integrate meditation into your life.


Select Your Meditation Technique:

Based on your research and personal preferences, choose a meditation technique that suits you. If you're new to meditation, mindfulness meditation is a good place to start. You can always explore other techniques as you progress.


Use Guided Meditations:

If you're new to meditation, guided meditations can be helpful. Many meditation apps and websites offer guided sessions led by experienced instructors. These can provide structure and support as you learn.


Get Comfortable:

Sit or lie down in a comfortable position. You can use a cushion or chair for seated meditation or a yoga mat for lying down. Ensure that your posture is relaxed but alert.


Focus on Your Breath or Chosen Object:

In most meditation techniques, you'll be asked to focus your attention. This can be on your breath, a mantra, a candle flame, or any chosen object. The goal is to anchor your mind and reduce mental chatter.


Observe Without Judgment:

Allow your thoughts and sensations to come and go without judgment. When your mind wanders (as it inevitably will), gently bring your focus back to your chosen point of attention.


Start Gradually:

If you're new to meditation, start with short sessions, such as 5-10 minutes, and gradually increase the duration as you become more comfortable with the practice.


Join a Meditation Group:

In many cities and towns in the USA, you can find meditation groups, centers, or classes. These can be a great way to learn from experienced teachers, meditate with others, and deepen your practice.


Use Meditation Apps:

There are numerous meditation apps available, such as Headspace, Calm, and Insight Timer, that offer guided meditations, timers, and tracking features to help you stay consistent.


Stay Patient and Persistent:

Meditation is a skill that develops over time. Be patient with yourself and acknowledge that it's normal for the mind to wander. The key is to gently bring your attention back to your chosen point of focus.


Seek Guidance:

If you encounter challenges or have specific questions about your meditation practice, consider seeking guidance from experienced meditation teachers or practitioners.


Enjoy the Benefits:

Meditation can bring numerous physical, mental, and emotional benefits, including reduced stress, improved focus, and greater overall well-being. Keep in mind that the benefits may take time to fully manifest, so be consistent in your practice.

Remember that meditation is a personal journey, and there's no one-size-fits-all approach. Explore different techniques, adapt them to your needs, and enjoy the transformative power of this ancient practice in the USA or anywhere else in the world.

Narasimha Avatar | The Man-Lion Incarnation of Lord Vishnu.

9/28/2023 10:20:00 pm

Narasimha Avatar

The Man-Lion Incarnation of Lord Vishnu


           Narasimha Avatar is the fourth of the ten principal incarnations (Dashavatara) of Lord Vishnu in Hinduism. This avatar represents the divine as a half-man, half-lion, and it is associated with the dramatic story of the demon king Hiranyakashipu and his son Prahlada.

Here are the details of the Narasimha Avatar:


Purpose of Narasimha Avatar:

Narasimha Avatar was taken by Lord Vishnu to fulfill several significant objectives:


Defeat of Hiranyakashipu:

        The primary purpose of this incarnation was to defeat the demon king Hiranyakashipu, who had obtained a boon that made him nearly invulnerable. Hiranyakashipu could not be killed by man or beast, indoors or outdoors, day or night, by any weapon, and on any piece of land or in the sky. Lord Vishnu, in his Narasimha form, fulfilled the conditions of this boon by manifesting as a man-lion, appearing at twilight, dragging Hiranyakashipu to the threshold of a courtyard (neither indoors nor outdoors), and using his claws (not a conventional weapon) to defeat him.


Protection of Devotee Prahlada:

         Narasimha Avatar was also taken to protect Prahlada, a devout devotee of Lord Vishnu and the son of Hiranyakashipu. Despite his father's opposition and persecution, Prahlada remained steadfast in his devotion.


Appearance and Attributes:

        Narasimha Avatar is a unique and powerful depiction of Lord Vishnu. In this form, the upper part of his body is human, and the lower part is that of a lion. This hybrid form was specifically chosen to fulfill the conditions of Hiranyakashipu's boon.

         Narasimha is often depicted with a fearsome expression and sharp claws. He is sometimes shown with a gaping, open mouth, which is symbolic of his dramatic emergence from a pillar to defeat Hiranyakashipu.


The Legend of Narasimha Avatar:

         The story of Narasimha Avatar is narrated in the Bhagavata Purana and other Hindu scriptures. According to the legend, Hiranyakashipu was a demon king who had gained immense power through severe penance and had become virtually indestructible due to the boon he received from Lord Brahma.

          Despite his father's tyranny and attempts to eliminate his devotion, Prahlada continued to worship Lord Vishnu. In a fit of rage, Hiranyakashipu challenged Prahlada to prove the existence of Lord Vishnu. Prahlada's unwavering faith and devotion angered his father even more.

          In response to Prahlada's devotion, Lord Vishnu appeared as Narasimha from a pillar in the royal palace, in the twilight hour. This fulfilled all the conditions of Hiranyakashipu's boon. Narasimha then proceeded to defeat Hiranyakashipu in a dramatic battle, tearing him apart with his lion-like claws.

         The story of Narasimha Avatar highlights the triumph of good over evil, the power of devotion, and the divine's willingness to take extraordinary forms to protect its devotees.


Symbolism and Lessons:

Narasimha Avatar symbolizes several important spiritual lessons:


Protection of Devotees: The avatar demonstrates the divine's commitment to protecting its devotees, even in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges.


Justice: Narasimha's appearance and victory over Hiranyakashipu represent the triumph of justice and the defeat of tyranny and arrogance.


Unique Manifestations: The avatar showcases the diversity and versatility of divine manifestations in Hinduism, where gods can take forms beyond the human.

           Narasimha Avatar is celebrated in Hindu festivals like Narasimha Jayanti and serves as a reminder of the divine's omnipresence and its unwavering support for those who remain devoted and righteous.

While there are numerous paths to spirituality, here are some common means and practices associated with spiritual growth and development:

7.Service and Charity:

        Acts of kindness and service to others are seen as spiritual practices in many traditions. They promote selflessness and compassion.

Additionally, spirituality can be practiced within the framework of organized religions or in a more secular and non-religious context, depending on one's beliefs and inclinations. Ultimately, the goal of spirituality is often to find deeper meaning, purpose, and connection in life.

This phase of life is characterized by numerous opportunities, challenges, and experiences that shape a person's personality, values, and aspirations. In this article, we will delve into why student life is considered the golden period and the profound impact it has on individuals.


1. Learning and Knowledge:


        Student life is synonymous with learning and acquiring knowledge. It is during this time that individuals are exposed to a wide range of subjects and disciplines, from mathematics to literature, science to the arts. The thirst for knowledge and the opportunity to explore various fields can be incredibly enriching. This phase instills in students the importance of curiosity and the joy of learning, which can stay with them throughout their lives.


2. Personal Growth:

         Student life is a period of significant personal growth. It is during these years that individuals not only gain academic knowledge but also develop essential life skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, and time management. These skills are invaluable and contribute to one's overall development.


3. Friendships and Relationships:

          The friendships formed during student life often endure for a lifetime. The shared experiences, late-night study sessions, and moments of laughter and camaraderie create bonds that are cherished forever. These friendships provide emotional support and a sense of belonging.


4. Dreams and Aspirations:

          Student life is a time when dreams and aspirations take root. It is a phase when individuals start envisioning their future careers and goals. The pursuit of these dreams begins with the choices made during student life, including selecting courses of study, extracurricular activities, and internships.


5. Independence and Responsibility:

6. Diversity and Tolerance:

          College campuses are often melting pots of cultures, beliefs, and perspectives. Interacting with people from diverse backgrounds fosters tolerance and broadens one's worldview. This exposure to diversity equips students with the ability to appreciate differences and work collaboratively with people from various walks of life.


7. Pursuit of Passions:

Kurma Avatar : The Tortoise Incarnation of Lord Vishnu.

9/08/2023 09:37:00 pm

Kurma Avatar: The Tortoise Incarnation of Lord Vishnu


         Kurma Avatar is the second of the ten principal incarnations (Dashavatara) of Lord Vishnu in Hinduism. This avatar represents the divine as a giant tortoise and is associated with the churning of the ocean (Samudra Manthan) to obtain the nectar of immortality (amrita).


Here are the details of the Kurma Avatar:


Purpose of Kurma Avatar:

Kurma Avatar was taken by Lord Vishnu to fulfill several significant objectives:


Churning of the Ocean: The primary purpose of this incarnation was to assist the gods (devas) and demons (asuras) in churning the cosmic ocean (Kshirasagara) to obtain the nectar of immortality (amrita).


Stabilization of Mount Mandara: During the churning of the ocean, Mount Mandara was used as a churning rod. It began to sink into the ocean due to its weight. Lord Vishnu, in his Kurma form, assumed the role of a divine support by placing the mountain on his back, preventing it from sinking.


Appearance and Attributes:

        Kurma Avatar is typically depicted as a giant tortoise with a divine radiance. In some artistic representations, Lord Vishnu is shown with his upper body emerging from the tortoise's shell. He is often depicted with a serene and composed expression, signifying his role as the stabilizer of the universe during the churning.


The Churning of the Ocean (Samudra Manthan):

        The Kurma Purana and various other Hindu texts narrate the story of Kurma Avatar in connection with the churning of the ocean. According to these accounts, the devas (celestial beings) and asuras (demons) jointly decided to churn the cosmic ocean to obtain the elixir of immortality, amrita. They used the serpent Vasuki as the churning rope and Mount Mandara as the churning rod.


        As the churning began, the mountain began to sink into the ocean due to its weight. Realizing the precarious situation, Lord Vishnu incarnated as Kurma and assumed the role of supporting the mountain on his back. His divine intervention ensured that the churning continued, ultimately leading to the emergence of various divine treasures, including the coveted amrita.


Symbolism and Lessons:

The Kurma Avatar carries profound symbolic and spiritual significance:


Stability: Kurma Avatar symbolizes stability and the importance of a strong foundation in life. Just as Lord Vishnu supported Mount Mandara, individuals are reminded of the need for inner stability and resilience during life's challenges.


Cooperation: The churning of the ocean involved both devas and asuras working together. This signifies the idea that sometimes, opposing forces must collaborate for a greater purpose.


Sacrifice: Lord Vishnu's willingness to support the mountain reflects the spirit of sacrifice for the greater good, a significant theme in Hindu philosophy.


Elixir of Immortality: The quest for amrita represents humanity's eternal longing for spiritual realization and liberation from the cycle of birth and death.


         Kurma Avatar serves as a reminder of the divine's role in maintaining balance and harmony in the universe and the importance of inner strength, cooperation, and sacrifice in one's spiritual journey and life.

10 Incarnations of Lord Vishnu in the "Dashavatara".
Dashavatara


         The "Dashavatara" refers to the ten principal incarnations of Lord Vishnu in Hinduism. Vishnu, one of the principal deities in Hinduism, is believed to incarnate on Earth whenever there is a crisis and dharma (righteousness) is threatened. Each of these incarnations, known as avatars, serves a specific purpose and teaches profound spiritual and moral lessons.

 Here are the ten incarnations of Lord Vishnu in the Dashavatara:


1. Matsya (The Fish):

        In this avatar, Lord Vishnu took the form of a fish to save the sage Manu and the Saptarishi (seven great sages) from a great deluge (flood) by guiding them and a boat to safety. The Matsya avatar symbolizes protection and preservation.


2. Kurma (The Tortoise):

        Lord Vishnu assumed the form of a tortoise to support Mount Mandara during the churning of the ocean (Samudra Manthan) to obtain the nectar of immortality (amrita). The Kurma avatar represents stability and patience.


3. Varaha (The Boar):

        Vishnu incarnated as a wild boar to rescue the Earth (personified as the goddess Bhudevi) from the demon Hiranyaksha, who had submerged it in the cosmic ocean. The Varaha avatar signifies the protection of righteousness and the restoration of balance.


4. Narasimha (The Man-Lion):

         In this unique form, Lord Vishnu emerged as a half-man, half-lion to defeat the demon king Hiranyakashipu, who could not be killed by man or beast. The Narasimha avatar embodies the triumph of good over evil.


5. Vamana (The Dwarf Brahmin):

        Vishnu incarnated as a dwarf Brahmin to subdue the demon king Bali, who had gained control over the three worlds. Vamana symbolizes humility, sacrifice, and the victory of righteousness.


6. Parashurama (The Warrior with an Axe):                   Lord Vishnu took on the form of a fierce warrior Brahmin to rid the world of corrupt and oppressive Kshatriya (warrior) rulers. Parashurama represents the power to restore justice and uphold dharma.


7. Rama (The Prince of Ayodhya):

       Vishnu's incarnation as Lord Rama is one of the most beloved and revered. Rama's life, as depicted in the epic Ramayana, illustrates the qualities of an ideal king, husband, and devotee. His avatar highlights the importance of righteousness, duty, and devotion.


8. Krishna (The Divine Cowherd):

       Lord Krishna, the central figure in the Mahabharata and the Bhagavad Gita, embodies divine love, compassion, and wisdom. His teachings emphasize devotion and spiritual enlightenment.


9. Buddha (The Enlightened One):

       Some interpretations of the Dashavatara include Lord Buddha as an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Buddha's teachings focused on the alleviation of human suffering and the path to enlightenment.


10. Kalki (The Future Warrior):

       Kalki is believed to be a future avatar of Lord Vishnu who will appear in the future to end the current age of darkness and corruption (Kali Yuga). He is envisioned as a warrior on a white horse, wielding a sword, and restoring righteousness.


       The Dashavatara concept represents the cyclic nature of time and the belief in the periodic appearance of divine incarnations to restore balance and uphold dharma in the universe. These avatars collectively represent the multifaceted aspects of divinity and provide guidance for living a righteous and spiritually fulfilling life.

Matsya Avatar: The Fish Incarnation of Lord Vishnu.

9/05/2023 09:44:00 pm

Matsya Avatar:

The Fish Incarnation of Lord Vishnu


        Matsya Avatar is the first of the ten principal incarnations (Dashavatara) of Lord Vishnu in Hinduism. It is a significant and symbolic avatar in Hindu mythology and represents the preservation and protection of life during times of great crisis, particularly deluge or floods. Here are the full details of the Matsya Avatar:


Purpose of Matsya Avatar:

Matsya Avatar was taken by Lord Vishnu to fulfill several key objectives:


◾️Protection of Manus: The primary purpose of this incarnation was to protect the first human, Manu, and his wife, Shatarupa, from a catastrophic deluge that threatened to engulf the world.


◾️Preservation of Knowledge: Manus are considered the forefathers of humanity and the custodians of knowledge. Lord Vishnu incarnated as Matsya to ensure that knowledge and life were preserved through this catastrophic event.


Appearance and Attributes:

       Matsya Avatar is depicted as a giant fish, often with a horn on its head. In artwork, it is typically shown either swimming in the cosmic ocean or carrying the boat with Manu and the Saptarishi (seven great sages) on its back.


The Great Deluge (Pralaya):

        The Matsya Purana, one of the 18 major Hindu Puranas, narrates the story of Matsya Avatar. According to the Purana, a demon named Hayagriva had stolen the sacred Vedas (ancient scriptures) and hidden them in the depths of the cosmic ocean. Lord Vishnu took the form of Matsya to recover the Vedas and return them to Brahma.


        While in the process of retrieving the Vedas, Matsya came across King Manu, a virtuous and devout ruler, who was performing religious rituals on the banks of the river. Manu spotted a small fish struggling in his palm and decided to protect it. As the fish grew rapidly, Manu transferred it to a larger vessel and eventually to the ocean. The fish kept growing until it became enormous and revealed its divine identity to Manu.


The Boat of Knowledge:

         Lord Vishnu, in the form of Matsya, instructed Manu to build a massive boat and take with him samples of all living creatures, along with the Saptarishi (seven great sages), seeds of all plants, and the sacred scriptures. As the deluge approached, the boat was secured to Matsya's horn.


Preservation of Life and Knowledge:

        During the catastrophic flood, the boat sailed on the turbulent waters, guided and protected by Matsya. The deluge wiped out all life and existence, but the boat of knowledge, with Lord Vishnu as Matsya, ensured the survival of humanity, sacred knowledge, and life forms.


Lesson and Symbolism:

The Matsya Avatar symbolizes several important principles in Hinduism:


🔸Preservation: It represents the divine's commitment to preserving life and knowledge during times of great crisis.


🔸Duty and Compassion: Manu's act of protecting the small fish, which turned out to be Lord Vishnu, signifies the importance of compassion and fulfilling one's duty without expecting rewards.


🔸Cycle of Creation: Matsya Avatar also represents the cyclical nature of creation, where the universe undergoes cycles of creation, preservation, and destruction.


       The Matsya Avatar, through its timeless legend, conveys profound spiritual and moral lessons while emphasizing the importance of divine protection during the most challenging times in the universe's history.
