The Four Kinds of Service by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

What should a person do? Life is a mission. I have said that human life is an ideological flow. That is, human life is a mission; life itself is a mission; one’s very existence is a mission. Átmamokśárthaḿ jagaddhitáya ca – “Whatever one is to do one is to do for átmamokśa – for his or her own liberation – and for the elevation of the entire world, elevation of the entire human society.” One is to do both these things: that is, these two things are one’s mission.

Shaktih Sa' Shivasya Shaktih - Ananda Sutram Chapter 1 - 2

Shakti (the Operative Principle) 
is the shakti (force) of Shiva.

Purport: Every object has a material cause and an efficient cause. Over and above these there is also a conjunctive agency linking the upa'da'na ka'ran'a [material cause] with the nimitta ka'ran'a [efficient or instrumental cause]. The determination of the firmness or laxity of the relation of the material cause with the efficient cause depends on the degree of conjunctive functions. In the process of creation, Purus'a is the material factor, and Prakrti is the linking force consummating the relation between the material and the efficient causes. As the efficient cause, Purus'a is the primary factor, and Prakrti is the secondary one. (Read More)


Baked Potato and Green Pea Samosas

Samosa lovers are passionate about this triangular pastry from India. The Vedic pastry dough known as khasta,made for hundreds of years, is especially firm to the touch and uses a technique for rubbing melted butter into the flour, rather than cutting it in like for a pie crust. This version is made in the food processor. Using the tortilla press to make the dough rounds is certainly non-traditional, but it works splendidly to efficiently form the individual pies.

Please tell me
why do tears drip down,
as if from dark clouds,
your collyriumdecorated eyes?

Who caused you pain?
Who turned away from you?

The rains have gone far away.
Your only hope now lies in the winter dews.

Whom are those untimely tears shed for?
Who is that most desired one that did not come?

Never accept one as a friend
who fails to keep promises,
who gives pain but does not apologise,
who does not care to laugh in your joy
and weep in your sorrow.

== BABA STORY: REACHED WITHOUT SHOES ==

 

Namaskar,
In the 1950's, I went to see Baba in Jamalpur for PC. Due to my Hindu religious upbringing, I thought that since I was going to meet my Guru, then I should not wear shoes as that would be disrespectful.

So I left my shoes at my home in Muzaffarpur to show my reverence for Guru, and boarded the train for Jamalpur. I was barefoot the entire journey to Jamalpur - and all the way from the station to the jagrti.

Once I arrived, I waited to get called for PC. No one seemed to notice that I was not wearing shoes.

Soon I was called and entered Baba's room for PC. Immediately I did sastaunga pranam and lay prostrate before Baba. When I completed my salutation and looked at Baba, He asked, "What is your name."

"Vaedyanath."

Then Baba inquired, "Where are your shoes?".

I replied, "Out of reverence, I did not bring them. I left them at my house in Muzaffarpur."

Then Baba replied in my mother tongue of Maethili: "In the future when you come to see Me, then you must wear your shoes."

"Yes, Baba", I responded.

Baba continued, "When you go to your house to see your parents, then do you follow all kinds of rules and regulations or do you just go and see them?"

I said, "I see them, Baba."

Baba said, "Yes, even if your clothes are dirty you will go visit them - you will not wait outside."

Baba continued, "Similarly when you come here to see Me, just come in your regular attire, wearing your shoes."

"Yes, Baba."

The rest of the PC passed in a very blissful way.

Indeed, that was the day Baba told me not to follow dogma. By His grace I also got the teaching that the Guru-disciple relationship is very close - just like a family relation.

Namaskar,
Vaedyanath
 

ABOUT THE ABOVE STORY


The above story was told by Ac Vaedyanath Jha - a family acarya from Muzaffarpur who was initiated in the 1950's. In that story He is recounting a scene from his PC with Baba.

Here are other key points related with that story.

1. In the various religions, people often dress in a certain way and follow a particular code when visiting their temple, church, synagogue or mosque etc. Jews wear a yamaka and a shawl, Hindus go barefoot, Muslims have their particular dress, and Christians wear their Sunday-best etc. They all have their various rituals and attire.

However, Baba adamantly warns us that when one is just involved in such rituals then they forget Parama Purusa. That is Baba's warning.

Baba says, "To count beads or practice ritualistic worship without directing one’s mind towards the Supreme Entity is of no use. To pretend to be virtuous outside while harbouring sinful thoughts within is absolutely meaningless. Such hypocrisy carries no value." (AMIWL-8, The Macrocosmic Stance and Human Life)

So that is His teaching. The most important point is to be sincere in one's meditation on the Supreme and not get caught up in various dogmatic rituals as happens in the various religions.

2. Here following Baba reminds us that we have a close, family relationship with Him.

Baba says, "He is the Supreme Father. You have a family relation with that Supreme Entity, and not a relationship of external formality. He is yours, and you should also remember that nothing is external for Him. Everything is within, nothing is without. So you have been created by Him and you are in Him, and, because He is your supreme goal, finally you will be with Him, you will be one with Him. For this you require no special education, no knowledge of philosophy, and no other external attributions. Supreme love for the Supreme Universal Entity will make you one with Him." (Subhasita Samgraha-21, Human Life and Its Goal)

Namaskar,
Phanindra
