The subject of today’s discourse is “The Stance Of Salvation And How To Attain It.”
Salvation as you know, is liberation of permanent nature.
The question of liberation does arise only, where there is bondage. Where there is no bondage, the question of fighting for liberation doesn’t arise.
Now, let us see what are the bondages of a spiritual aspirant?
Within the realm of this Macro-psychic conation, bondages are of three kinds.
First one is physical bondage,
second one is the intellectual bondage, and
the third bondage is spiritual bondage…………..

…………………..

That is “Tattva” means “Thatness”, something regarding that.
“That” means “Brahma” in Saḿskrta.
Brahma is neuter gender.
Parama Puruśa i.e., the Cognitive Principle is masculine gender, and Parama Prakrti, i.e., the Operative Principle is feminine gender and Brahma is neuter gender.
“Thatness” means something regarding “Brahma”- tattvabhávát.
That’s why, while attending any mundane duty you will have to ascribe Brahmahood to that material object or while thinking anything you will have to ascribe Brahmahood to your mental object. This is what is called Tattvabhávát.
Yojanát tattvabhávát , i.e. you will have to do Tattvabhávána?
You will have to do what?
Prańidhána, you will have to do what?
Anudhyána! and What will be the result of Yojanát?
You will become one with Him.
Tasyábhidyánát Yojanát Tattvabhávát,
Bhúyáshcánte Viśhvamáyá Nivrttih and what will be the result?
You will attain salvation and yourself get liberated from Viśhvamáyá.

What is Viśhvamáyá?
When the Lord expands Himself with the help of Máyá, when He increases the scope of His pervasiveness with the help of the Creative Principle that Creative Principle is called Viśńumáyá. Viśńu means all pervasive, Viśńu means all pervasive, and the Lord is called Viśńu.
Viśńu means Omniscience, Viśńu means Omniscience.
Now with the help of Viśńumáyá, HE expands Himself. Clear!
Then second one is called Yogamáyá.
In the last phase of this Cosmo-psychic order, when the Sádhaka with the help of Hládinii shakti touches the feet of the Supreme Lord, Krśńa, that conjunction is done by Máyá and in that stage, in that phase Máyá is called Yogamáyá.
Yoga means connection; Yogamáyá, Viśńumáyá, then Yogamáyá.
The Máyá, with the help of which the Lord has expressed Himself in the form of this world, the Lord has created this world of diversities, is called Máhámáyá.
This Máhámáyá, Externally it is Máhámáyá, and internally also you can create the reflections of this external world. Externally you have seen something relishing, internally in your mind you will create it.
Externally you came in contact with Rasagolla and internally you will also create that Rasagolla and where is that Rasagolla internally ?
Externally you have seen a Rájá, internally you yourself become a Rájá and enjoy that situation. Internally you do like this.
Certainly, so this internal reflection of the Máhámáyámic externality is done by you. Do you follow?
This internal creation of yours has a reflection of the external world, as an internal projection of this external physicality is done by your Máyá and that individual Máyá of yours is called An’umáyá.
So you see, Máyá in a particular phase, she is Viśńumáyá.
In another phase, she is Yogamáyá, in another phase she is Máhámáyá and in your particular phase she is An’umáyá.
And the collective name for all these phases is Vishvamáyá, it is the collective name.
That is why, Tattvabhávat, that is, why ascribing Brahmahood to each and every physical and mental object, by Yojanát, by Prańidhána, by Anudhyána, what does happen?
That Yojanát is established and when that Yojanát is established you get yourself liberated from Vishvamáyá.
So, the Sádhaná of a Sádhaka is to do these things.
Tattvabhávana, Prańidhána, Anudhyána, and finally, Yojanát. That is how one is to attain Salvation, and Salvation is possible only in spiritual stratum.
In the realm of physicality and intellectuality one cannot attain. In the realm of physicality one cannot attain liberation and in the realm of intellectuality one can attain liberation but one cannot attain liberation of permanent nature.
It is only possible in the realm of Spirituality.
