SHRII SHRII ÁNANDAMÚRTI

All our animal life are for material enjoyment, but human life is for higher pursuits, for something subtle, something higher, something more Educative.

There are certain propensities which are common both for man and animal, but the old idea of logicians that man is a rational being is not supported by us.

We say man is not a rational animal.

If we say man is a rational animal, then man also comes within animal category. Yes, man is a living being, but man is not an animal.

We say Human life is an Ideological flow.

The Ideological flow is Humanity, is human life; and where there is no Ideological flow it is an animal.

But whatever a man is to do — What a man is to do?

He is to do only Spiritual Practice, only Sádhaná.

But for maintaining the body, he requires Food, he requires Dress, he requires Medical treatment, he requires Education and he requires so many things; and these so many things, they are Worldly, Worldly Duties.

And when engaged in Worldly Duties naturally he gets detached from his Spiritual Duty.

And that’s why the Madhuvidyá says that whenever one is to do in Worldly Work, one is to — what?

Ascribe Brahma-hood, Ascribe Náráyańa-hood, Ascribe Brahma-hood, to that Worldly Duty.

So while doing Worldly Duty, attending Worldly duties, he is not wasting his time, he is doing Spiritual Practice.

Because Spiritualism has been imposed; has been Ascribed to that Worldly Work. Do you follow?

Now you know there is a popular Mantra –

Pitr puruśebhyo namah Rśi devebhyo namah.

Brahmárpanaḿ Brahmahavir Brahmágnao Brahmańáhutam.

Brahmaeva tena gantavyaḿ Brahmakarma samádhiná”

You should know its meaning.

It has got closest proximity to this Madhuvidyá, that is, Ascription of Brahma-hood to Worldly Work.

First thing is What?

“Pitr puruśebhyo namah” - Pitr puruśebhyo namah. You are in this world, but before you so many human beings came.

The Australopithecus is the old animal which was the forefather of Modern men was in this world about ten lakhs of years ago, One hundred thousand years ago.

In Pliocene age, some times in

Pliocene Age,

then Miocene,

Oligocene,

Mesozoic,

Paleozoic,

Cenozoic.

This is Cenozoic Age going on this Earth, as per Archeology.

Now you know Pitr puruśebhyo, so many Human beings came, and you are Descendants of that human, those old Human beings who came here and who left this World long ago.

You are their Descendants.

So, Pitr puruśebhyo namah. Pitr puruśebhyo means – all our forefathers, who came in this World and left this World.

So many people, so many millions of people came since last ten lakhs of years. So, Pitr puruśebhyo namah “I do namah to those people,” because I am a contiguity of those people in the flow of Human race.

Rśi devebhyo namah.. During this long period, so many things were Invented by so many Great people. Those Great people are known as “ Rśi ”.

The man who Invented Penicillin is a Rśi ;

who invented a Aeroplane is a Rśi ;

Motorcar, a Rśi ;

Television, a Rśi ,

so many Rśi s came, and

those who Invented Bullock Carts, they are also Rśis in those Dark Age.

In that Dark Age, the man who Invented Bullock Cart was also a Rśi , at that time.

So many Rśi s came, and in their Age, they were Glittering Personalities.

We may or may not recognize them in this Second Half of Twentieth Century(20th Century), but in their ages they were Glittering Personalities.

So, Rśi devebhyo namah — “I do Namah for those Rśis also, who Invented so many things.”

And the collection of their Inventions is the Modern Human Civilization.

The man who first started this “Knitting”. Now you are using the Sweater. Rśi devebhyo . . .

Brahmárpanam. Now I am offering something for Brahma.

What I am Offering?

My reverence, My respect, My cordiality, My Love. Hmm

So, Brahmárpanam. This action of Offering. Offering is an action. Árpana — Offering is called Árpana in Saḿskrta.

Now this Process of Offering, this action, is what?

It is Brahma.

That is, I have ascribed Brahma-hood to this action of Offering even. Do you follow?

This verb has also, Brahma-hood has been Ascribed to this verb also. What verb? — the Offering. I am Offering something.

So, Brahmárpanam. “The Offering is Brahma,” because Brahma-hood has been Ascribed to it. Brahmárpanam.

Brahmahavir — “and the Object for whom I am Offering, that Object is also Brahma.”

Second thing, Brahmahavir, Brahmágnao, Na, no, no .. Brahmahavir and the object that I am Offering is also Brahma, Brahmahavir means “I am Offering, this verb, this action of Offering, is Brahma — and the Object of Offering, suppose – kyoh hai,,  suppose I am Offering; this verb of Offering  is Brahma and “What is being Offered, this stick; It is also Brahma” — Brahmahavir.

And to Whom it is being Offered — Brahmágnao.

That object who is receiving this Offering. “The third man suppose He, He is also Brahma” — Brahmágnao.

Brahmańáhutam– “and the Personal, the man who is Offering, he is also Brahma.” Brahma-hood has been ascribed to him also.

Offering; Offered; to whom Offered; Offering man, Offering personality – He is also Brahma & Brahmaeva tena gantavyaḿ . The man who is Offering — his Goal, his Destination, is also Brahma.

That is, Brahma is the Goal for this Offering entity.

And when he will merge into Brahma when he will become one with Brahma?

The Offering entity’s Goal is Brahma; and when the Offering Entity will become Brahma? Na.

The Offering entity is here in this world to do the work of Brahma — “And after completing this work of Brahma he will become one with Brahma.”

Brahmaeva tena gantavyam”́ and when, “Brahmaeva tena gantavyaḿ” means Brahma is his goal, the Goal of the Offering Entity. Khab jagiyga  -

And when he will go? Brahmakarma samádhiná — “after he completes the Work allotted to him by Brahma.”
