Jnana Yoga

Jnana Yoga

Jnana  yoga or the path of knowledge is the shortest but most difficult path for one to practice. One has to deny or negate the apparent through constant discrimination between the real and the unreal . Sri Ramakrishna his guru Tota  Puri , Sri Sankaracarya, Sri Ramana Maharsi and Swami Vivekananda were the great exponents of this path of knowledge. Knowledge Originated from Lord Siva, whose dwelling place is the Himalayas (Kailas). From time immemorial, great sages of India, renouncing everything for the sake of Truth, discovered in their deep meditation innumerable spiritual truths about man and the universe.Even emperors and kings used to seek their advice and blessings. Totapuri –  who had realized the ultimate truth taught Sri Ramakrsna Advaita sadhana.When he was staying at Dakshineswar, he saw a disembodied spirit climbling down from a tree. He requested that spirit  to sit with him for meditation, since he saw no difference between them, both of them being manifestations of Brahman. Sankaracarya, a great teacher of Advita, who expounded the path of knowledge preached Mayavada. According to him , the sun of knowledge, that is Atman , is always self – effulgent . It is the cloud of ignorance or Maya which hides the Self.yu Then we have Ramana Maharsi , who was always absorbed in the thought of the self . For  him the whole universe appeared like a reflection in a mirror, which is only appearance and not Reality . Then there was Swami Vivekananda, who carried the thoughts of the Eastern sages to the western world , in the present age. He proclaimed the truth of Vedanta first at the Parliament of Religions at Chicago in 1893. He founded monastic order, the Ramakrsna Math and the Ramakrishna Mission , in the name of his Gurudeva, for the spread of the message of Sanatana Dharma thoughout the world. Swami Vivekananda”s book jnana Yoga, a collection of his lectures delivered in America is a classic on Vedanta philosophy extremely useful for seekers of...

Bhakti Yoga

Bhakti Yoga

Bhakti or Divine love brings God closed to a spiritual aspirant. He can be loved and adored as a spouse, or a child , or a mother, or a servant , or a friend, as did the Gopis of Vrndavan, Yashoda, Sir Ramakrishna , Hanuman, and Arjuna, respectively. . The emotion of love is a divine gift to man . When it is controlled and given the proper direction , man attains the summum bonum of life . Cutting asunder all wordly bondages, he can cross the ocean of samsara and enjoy divine bliss. Worldly love when directed towards and offered to God becomes devotion. A heart given to the world may break at any moment . such as at the loss of a beloved one. Love offered to God grows day by day, expanding our heart till it reaches his holy feet. Sir Krsna says in the Bhagawad Gita:’ Whoever offers Me with devotion a leaf ,a flower, a fruit or water, I accept that , the pious offering of the pure in heart’.(Gita:9.26) To develop love for God one must cultivate divine attitude towards Him. It is called Bhava in Sanskrt. One attains knowledge as well as vision  of God by cultivating a proper longing for him. In Narada Bhakti Sutras, Narada has mentioned eleven types of such moods. Not that there are only are  eleven types. But there are as many possibilities as there are human relationships. Narada points out that even if they appear different, they are all manifestations of love , which in itself is only one. The gopis of Vrndavan and  Mirabai practised Madhura Bhava: that is , they loved Sir Krsna as their husband . Dhruva loved the Lord as his father. The sages practice Santa Bhava,  the peaceful attitude by practicing regular meditation and japa. Hanuman found delight in serving his Lord Rama; it is known as Sasya Bhava- the attitude of friendship. Yasoda exhibited parental love towards Krsna- Vatsalya Bhava and the great devoyee Bali is a surpreme example of complete self- surrender to the Lord. The last attitude is a common characteristic of all Bhaktas, because it is in the very nature of intence love that it cannot bear separation. Whatever may be the attitude, we must make God our own and develop intimacy with Him. Wholehearted and selfless love alone will lead us to the...

Karma Yoga

Karma Yoga

Karma – Yoga is the saving mantra for humanity in this age . To put it in words of Sri Krsna : ”Devoted each to his own duty , man attains to the highest perfection” ( Gita: 18:15 Karma Yoga is the easiest path for self – realization, provided one practices it sincerely. Whatever may be the nature of work or position of a person in society, by doing one’s allotted work with a sense of self- surrender, one can easily advance in spiritual life. One must consider oneself as a mere instrument  in the hands of God. He alone is the doer and we are mere puppets. Sir krsna says in the fourth chapter of the Giita that this Karma yoga was taught by Him ages ago , in his previous incarnations, to Vivasvan: then , Vivasvan taught it to Manu and Manu to lksvaku . However, in the course of time, this knowledge was lost and hence Sir Krsna taught it again to Arjuna. Arjuna wanted to run away from the battle – field , giving up  his ksatrya dharma.  He wanted to embrace the life of a mendicant . Sir Krsna dissuaded him and exhorted him to follow Arjuna ‘s own dharma( Gita:2.37) “Therefore, get up , O son of Kunti, resolve to fight. Sri Krsna quoted the example of Janaka. Janaka while discharging his duties as a king. Attained rsihood and is therefore called a Rajarsi. There is another example in the Chandogya Upanisad . A boy Satyakama approached sage Gautama to learn Brahma vidya. The sage sent him away with four hundred cows, and asked  him to take care of them. The boy did his job sincerely and implicitly obeyed the instructions of the guru. By doing this seemingly ordinary work , the boy attained spiritual enlightenment. When the boy returned with 1000 cows, the  teacher was amazed to see his face bright with Brahma Tejas and proclaimed that Satyakama has attained the supreme enlightenment. Therefore if a person, weather he be a Bramhmin or ksatrya, Vaisya or sudra does his work with honesty and sincerity, dedicating the fruits of his actions to God and takes recourse to dharma, ultimately attains perfection, which leads to peace, happiness and...
