JAEVADHARMA AND BHA´GAVATA DHARMA{partly typed purely Original English Discourse}

SHRII SHRII A´NANDAMU´RTI

24 October 1971 DMC, Visakhapatnam, INDIA

The subject of today’s discourse is “JAEVADHARMA and BHA´GAVATA DHARMA”. You know, wherever there is something, it may be animated, it may inanimated, it may be man, it may be an animal, but everybody will have to follow certain DHARMA.

Nobody, no entity, can go beyond the jurisdiction of DHARMA.

Oxygen follows certain DHARMA, gold is guided by certain DHARMA, cow is guided by certain DHARMA, man is also guided by certain DHARMA.

What is DHARMA?

But, You see in greater sense DHARMA means BHA´GAVATA DHARMA, that is the DHARMA to be followed by man.

What is the root meaning of DHARMA?

“Dhr” root verb plus “man” suffix is equal to DHARMA.

…….

Suppose a physician say, “A man require animal protein for your health;” but suppose DHARMA says, “No, a man should not take carnal food;” then in that case you will have to follow DHARMA and not the physician, because the order of DHARMA is above all order.

“DHRYATE DHARMA ITYA’HUH SA EVA PARAMAH PRABHUH”

“DHARMA is the highest Lord, highest Authority.”

SUKHAM’ VA’INCHATI SARVO HI

TACCA DHARMA SAMUDBHU’TAH;

TASMA’DDHARMA SADA’KA’RYA

SARVAVARN’AE PRAYATNATAH.

You know, so far as mental condition is concerned, somebody is SHU´DRA , somebody is VAESHYA, somebody is KS´ATRIYA, somebody is VIPRA, somebody is SADVIPRA, according to mental status, not according to complexion or birth.

It has been clearly stated by Lord KRS´N´A that Varn’a is not decided according to birth but according to Action and Attribution — remember – Action & Attribution.

….. known to him, it was present.

………………………….

In a particular temperature, iron will become liquid, in a particular temperature iron will become a gas. These are all VASTUDHARMA.

Now, the second one is JAEVADHARMA — DHARMA for living being, for animated objects. They eat, they have to take food, they have to sleep, they have to die, they have to maintain the family. These are all JAEVADHARMA.

………………

SHA´SANA´’T TA’RAYET YASTU SAH SHA´STRAH PARIKIIRTITAH .

What is SHA´STRA?

Which control the society, by SHA´SANA´, SHA´SANA´ means, SHA´SANA´ has got many meanings.

Actual SHA´SANA´ means “to control”, “to impose the code of discipline”. “Do this, don’t do this” — to prescribe the dos of life, to prescribe the don’t s of life is the duty of SHA´STRA.

………………………. the third one and this BHA´GAVATA DHARMA is MA’NAVA DHARMA.

There is no difference between MA’NAVA DHARMA and BHA´GAVATA DHARMA.

…………………….

This BHA´GAVATA DHARMA differentiate a man from a beast and a man who doesn’t follow BHA´GAVATA DHARMA, he is a beast, in this Shloka it has been said he is a beast.
But I say that he is worse than a beast, because the beast doesn’t know what to do; what not to do, but a man knows what to do and what not to do.

So if he doesn’t follow the codes of BHA´GAVATA DHARMA, he is worst than an animal — not PASHUBHIH SAMA’NA’H, worst than an animal.

Now, when this BHA´GAVATA DHARMA is a must for all human beings, a human being should follow the doctrines of this BHA´GAVATA DHARMA from his very childhood.

That is, his should be maximum utilization of his human existence, of this human framework, of this human mind and human spirit.

DHRUVA says,

KAOMA’RA A’CARET PRA’JINAH

DHARMA’N BHA´GAVATA’NIHA;

DURLABHAM’ MA’NUS’AM’JANMA

TADAPYA DHRUVAMARTHADAM’.

……………………….

What is BHAGA ?

…………………..

In Saḿskrta, BHAGA has got many meanings.

Many a import, But two important meanings are: one meaning of BHAGA is “fortune”, BHAGYA, “fortunate” in VAEDIC SANSKRIT, “fortunate” was called BHAGADHARA; DHARA means “holder” and BHAGA means “fortune”. BHAGADHARA means ‘fortunate’.

The old VAEDIC SANSKRIT BHAGA-DHARA became BAHADHARA in old Persian.
From BAHADHARA it became BAHADAR in Punjabi, BAHADAR in Urdu and BA’HA’DUR, BA’HA’DUR in Hindi.

BA’HA’DUR, BA’HA’DUR Hai..

The actual word is BHAGADHARA means “fortunate”.

…………………..

1. All the occult powers that is – AN’IMA’, LAGHIMA’, MAHIMA’, ISHITVA, VASHITVA, IISHITVA.

All these occult powers collectively, item number one.

VIIRYAM ca that is “command”. HE should have command over all general public.

Because He is to guide them; that’s why, HE should have ” command on them “. Second meaning “Command”. Urdu is ” HUKUMAT “.

Third one is ” YASHA “, YASHA means “Reputation”. And you should remember here, here “Reputation”, the word “Reputation” has been used both in positive, extremely positive and extremely negative sense. That is positive reputation and negative reputation.

Lord Shiva was about 7000 years ago; and even now there are so many admirers and so many opponents.

IYERS will say, “Oh! Lord Shiva was great;” IYENGARS will say, “No, Lord Shiva was not great.” laughing…….Hmmm.

Lord KRS´N´A was about 3500 years ago; even now you see, you will see there are so many admirers and so many opponents.

That is, when TA´RAKA BRAHMA comes, the entire intellect of the world gets polarized — one north pole, another south pole; one admirer, another opponent.

So the third item for the word BHAGA is one was all the occult powers, second was command, and third one reputation – either positive or negative.

There were GOPABA’LA’KAS of VRINDAVANA who loved KRS´N´A very much, and there were KANSA, there was PUTANA RAKSASI, there was BAKASUR and there was AGHASUR – Polarized.

Then “SHRII”.

What’s the meaning “SHRII”?

“SHRII” means “attraction”, “charm”.

The root is Sha, ra , ii.

Sha – “ta’lavya sha”, ’sh’.

You know, in Vaedic, old Vedic language there was only one sa, dantya sa [dental "s"], pronounced by touching the teeth from inside. sa Dantya sa.

But from DRAVIDIANS, that is the OLD INHABITANTS OF INDIA, those Aryans who came over here from Central Asia, they learnt the use of ta’lavya sha [palatal "s"] and mu’rdhanya s’a [cerebral "s"].

Dantya sa is the acoustic root of sentient principle, SATTVAGUN’A; Biija mantra of SATTVAGUN’A. Acoustic root of Sentient Principle, and Ta’lavya sha is the acoustic root of mutative principle, Ta’lavya Sha is the BIIJA MANTRA of RAJOGUN’A and Mu’rdhanya s’a is the acoustic root of static principle, Mu’rdhanya s’a is the BIIJA MANTRA of TAMOGUN’A.

Now sha, then ra, Sha, ra ii makes SHRII.

…………………………

SHA, RA, II – ii makes it feminine.

The entity that has got the charm of mutative principle and activating faculty of energy is SHRII; SHA, RA, II — actually SHRII means “attraction”, “charm”; rather, “Attractive Stamina”.

Fourth, AESHVARYA, then command, then reputation, then charm – fourth, fifth one is JIN?A´NAM.

Yes, What is JINA´NAM?

JINA´NAM means “subjectivization of external objectivity”. When the external objectivity is subjectivized by you, then you have acquired JIN?A´NAM of that entity, of that object.

Now for this subjectivization there should be three entities — the knowing entity, that is the subject; the known entity,that is the object; and the activating faculty that connects subject with object, JIN?A´NAM.

………………………

Actual JIN?A´NAM means complete assimilation of external objectivities. Where doth lie no scope for, what should i say – distortion.

JIN?A´NAM, A’TMAJIN?A´NA is the only JIN?A´NAM because in case of A’TMAJIN?A´NAM, those three entities won’t remain.

……………..

A’TMAJIN?A´NAM’ VIDURJINA’N'AM’ JIN?A´NA’NYA’NA’NI YA’NI;

TA’NI JIN?A´NA’VABHA’SA’NI SA’RASYA NAEVA BODHANA’T.

“A’TMAJIN?A´NAM is only JIN?A´NA, other JIN?A´NA’s are distortions of knowledge, shadows of knowledge, umbras and penumbras of knowledge; hence they are not proper JIN?A´NA.”

A’TMAJIN?A´NAM’ VIDURJINA’N'AM’ JIN?A´NA’NYA’NA’NI YA’NI;

TA’NI JIN?A´NA’VABHA’SA’NI KENA KARMENA SARASYA NAEVA BODHANA’T KANENA KARMAENA.

Fifth facutly is JIN?A´NA, and sixth one is VAERA’GYA.

Vi prefex- ranj root verb+ ghain suffix VAERA’GA. Vaera’ga.

and You know what is VAERA’GA?

What is VAERA’GYA?

…………

Similarly, whenever you come in contact with any thing, any external object, those objects have got their peculiar acoustic waves also, and those acoustic waves may or may not be audible, but those waves are.

Now when a SA’DHAKA, by dint of his SA’DHANA’, establishes mental equilibrium — mental equipoise — then what does happen?

…………………………..

You should remain in this world and do your duty with a balanced mind.

So the collection of these six faculties — all the occult powers, command, reputation, charm, JIN?A´NAM and VAERA’GYA and collection of these six faculties is known as BHAGA, and Owner of this BHAGA is BHAGAVA´N.

Now, BHAGAVA´N KRS´N´A says,

…………………….

But for BHA´GAVATA DHARMA you have to do. That’s why it has been said, “Give up all your DHARMA,

SARVADHARMA’N PARITYAJYA

MA’MEKAM’, EKAM’ MA’M SHARANAM’ VRAJA

“Ensconce thyself in ME, come in my SHARANA, that is follow the path of BHA´GAVATA DHARMA.”

And What is BHA´GAVATA DHARMA?

I have already told you, that BHA´GAVATA DHARMA and  MA’NAVA DHARMA are the same thing.

A man, in human framework, must follow BHA´GAVATA DHARMA, otherwise he is not a man, he is an animal in human framework.

“MA’MEKAM’ SHARANAM’ VRAJA”, What is BHA´GAVATA DHARMA?

You know I have already explained in another discourse, that BHA´GAVATA DHARMA, In BHA´GAVATA DHARMA, there are three essentialities — VISTA´RA, RASA, and SEVA’.

Everybody wants expansion. Now for this psychic expansion one is to do Spiritual Sa’dhana’. It is the specialty of human mind, not only human mind, but for all minds, that it takes the form of its object.

Now, when the Cosmic Purus’a is the object, naturally mind will also become like HIM.

“BRAHMAVID BRAHMAEVA BHAVATI”.

So, the First one is VISTA´RA.

To quench this thirst for VISTA´RA,…….. name of CITISHAKTI is Shiva.

………………….

What is HIS specialty?

HE is a flow, a RASA, and HIS devotees who dance according to the rhythm of that RASA.

Devotees always dance, either physically or mentally, they dance according to, everybody dances according to certain rhythm, certain CHANDA’.

So the devotees dance according to the rhythm of that flow.

………..

By KIIRTANAM, by KIIRTAN while dancing, you enjoy that Cosmic RASA, and VISTA´RA is done by DHYA’NA, JAPA as you learn from your A’CA’RYA and third one is SEVA’.

You know there are two similar words, SEVA’ and VYAVASA’YA. “VYAVASA’YA” means “business”. Business, that is VYAVASA’YA is always mutual.

If you want one kilo sugar, you will have to pay for it; you give something he gives you the sugar, it is mutual, not unilateral.

But SEVA’ is always unilateral; you give something, you take nothing. It is SEVA’.

In certain advertisements of certain business concern, I have seen, that they have written: “We are serving the nation for fifth years. We are rendering SEVA’, ” No, no, no it is not SEVA’, it is VYAVASA’YA, because they are being paid for it. It is national service, no! no! no! Not National Service, they are being paid for it.

Railways are not rendering any service to you, you are paying for it. Do you follow? yeah

As it been, If it was unilateral, then we could have accepted it as a Service.

You should understand clearly the difference between SEVA’ and VYAVASA’YA, Service and Business.

Third one is SEVA’. Now your relationship with Parama Purus’a is that of SEVA’.

Now in SEVA’, you see, while doing your SA´DHANA´ in your mental arena, in your psycho-spiritual arena, mentally while “uttering the incantation”, ” repeating the incantation”, you should mentally serve your Object of Adoration, Object of Meditation.

Simply uttering the Mantra won’t suffice; mentally you should serve HIM. Do you follow?

Again, in these physical world, in the world of physicality you are to serve NA’RA’YAN’A physically — NA’RA’YAN’A in form of men in distress.

So service, rather rendering selfless service, Service you know, has I think you have understood, Service always means selfless Service, because it is unilateral; one sided, not mutual.

Third item is SEVA’.

So VISTA´RA, RASA and SEVA’ — these are items for BHA´GAVATA DHARMA.

And BHA´GAVATA DHARMA is a must for all human beings.

And this BHA´GAVATA DHARMA one should practice from one’s very boyhood.

KAOMA’RA A’CARET PRA’JINAH

DHARMA’N BHA´GAVATA’NIHA;

DURLABHAM’ MA’NUS’AM’JANMA

TADAPYA DHRUVAMARTHADAM’.

And Lord KRS´N´A also advised the people to follow this BHA´GAVATA DHARMA, follow only ME.

This means, follow only BHA´GAVATA DHARMA, and for BHA´GAVATA DHARMA you are also follow SHA´STRA of BHA´GAVATA DHARMA because – SHA´SANA´’T TA’RAYET YASTU Dharma SAH SHA´STRAH PARIKIIRTITAH .

You have to follow YAMA and NIYAMA, you have to follow the code of discipline, you have to attend DHARMACAKRA weekly. These are all, what should I say, codes of discipline as prescribed by BHA´GAVATA DHARMA.
You’ll have to do it. There cannot be any concession in this respect, rather concession is dangerous.

HATHA YOGA’NUSHA´SANA´M. “One must follow ANUSHA´SANA´M. One must follow the code of discipline.”

He may be a RAJA, He may be a poor man, but the code of DHARMA is equally applicable to all. No exemption, No body can claim any special concession or any special favor.

SARVADHARMA’N PARITYAJYA; MA’MEKAM’ SHARANAM’ VRAJA;

Lord KRS´N´A said, “You follow me, that is, you follow my Path, that is you follow BHA´GAVATA DHARMA, because you are human being.” Sayeth KRS´N´A.

What’s the meaning of KRS´N´A?

………………………

And what will happen then, “Suppose you are a sinner, you are a degraded person, you are a depraved man, your past was dark and black; even then, if you follow ME, what will happen?

AHAM’ TVA’M’ SARVAPA’PEBHYO, MOKS’AYIS’YA’MI MA’SHUCAH.

I assure you that, I will liberate you from the fetters of all sins — all reactive momenta.

I am with you, I am to help you, I am to liberate you” said Lord KRS´N´A.

API CET SUDURA’CA’RO BHAJATE MA’MANANYABHA’K;

SO’PI PA’PAVINIRMUKTAH MUCYATE BHAVA BANDHANA’T.

Even if a SUDURA’CA’RA, You know, sinners are of different standards. A pickpocket and a murderer are not of the same standard.

Sinners belong to different standards.

Now SUDURA’CA’RA means “the worst sinner”; that is hated by other sinners –who is hated by the other sinners is the SUDURA’CA’RA. “Sinner of sinners”.

………………………

MUCYATE BHAVABANDHANA’T –and he will be freed from the bondages of BHAVA. He will become one with ME. He will be in ME.

Devotees must remember that for HIM, there is Only One DHARMA, that is BHA´GAVATA DHARMA.

That is taking the shelter of Parama Purus’a.

In the past, may be that he was a sinner, may be that he was a very good man; but that question doesn’t arise here?

He is to take shelter in Parama Purus’a.

And for him, it is the Only DHARMA, a BHAKTA, a Devotee has got no other DHARMA.

I told you in a recent discourse that once Lord KRS´N´A became ill. HE was treated in so many hospitals; there were so many blood test and urine test,and so many test.

In MATHURA hospital, in DWARAKA hospital, in INDRAPASTHA hospital, in so many hospital but doctors failed to cure HIM.

Then the devotees approached HIM they said: “Oh, Lord, we have failed, the physicians have failed, now YOU prescribe some medicine.”what we will have to do, we do accordingly, we do accordingly.

HE said, you know, there is one medicine, and that medicine is, If the foot-dust of my devotees are collected and I get a chance to touch that dust with MY head, only in that case, I’ll be cured. Caran’arajah of my devotees — if touched here, only in that case I’ll be cured.”

Hearing this, lot of people said, ” We can’t give our foot-dust, how can we give our foot-dust to Lord KRS´N´A?

Then we’ll be acquiring Papa, It will be an action of sinners, we’ll be sinning then.

No, no, we can’t do it, we can’t do it, we can’t do it. It will be MAHA’PA’PA.” MAHA’PA’PA. What do you say? It will be a MAHA’PA’PA.

Then everybody approached MAHARSHI NARADA, you please you are very, what should I say, efficient man, witty man. You are able to settle unsettled facts and unsettle settled facts. You’re the most efficient man for the purpose.

He went everywhere from America to Russia, from China to Japan, everywhere, a single iota of foot-dust.

Everybody said, “No, no, it will be MAHA’PA’PA, we can’t do it.”

Then HE approached the VRAJABA’LA’KAS of VRINDAVANA. They are clean and very simple village boys and devotees of KRS´N´A. They said, “Oh! KRS´N´A said like this? HE wants our foot-dust? Yes, yes, take it, take it, take it. Let MY Lord be cured first.”

NARADA said you know, “It will be a MAHA’PA’PA for you?”

“Let there be MAHA’PA’PA, but let MY Lord be cured first.

You see, MAHARSI NARADA, we don’t whether we are devotees or not. But whether we are actually devotees or not, let there will be an experiment.

Let the dust be touched, and if HE is cured, then is well and good; if not cured, then it will be proved that we are not devotees.

But what’s the harm if you take the foot-dust?

Let the Lord be cured and You know, We don’t know PA’PA or PUN’YA — we know Lord. We are ready to live in NARAKA, if the Lord is there in NARAKA. But if the Lord is in NARAKA, we are not ready to go to the SVARGA.

You know this is the proper mentality of a devotee. They don’t know know PA’PA or PUN’YA they know the Lord.

And you should also remember this fact.

SHUBHAMASTU…….
