Supreme Essence!

Standard

That which we wish to attain, that Supreme Essence, That
Consciousness is not concentrated in one particular place. It cannot
be captured or captivated by any one. If that was the case, then how
would That Eternal and Supreme Essence benefit us ? That Supreme
Soul (Consciousness) is ever attained by all beings. Those great
souls that have realized this Supreme Essence, neither become Gurus,
nor take any fees (gifts). In fact, they openly share their
learnings with all. Rather, those that do not become Gurus, are able
to reveal about the Supreme Essence in a manner that those who
become Gurus are unable to share.

Individuals that transact or trade their teachings are not Gurus.
Those that say – first become my disciple (student), then I will
reveal to you the path towards God Realization, are like traders of
God. It is a principle that the price that a particular item is sold
for, the actual value of the item is less then the listed price.
Just like a watch which is available for Rs 1,000, it would cost
lesser than Rs 1,000 for the shopkeeper to purchase that item for
resale. If by making someone a Guru, something is attained, then the
thing attained will be less value than the Guru himself has. Then
with that weaker thing, how can God be attained? God is priceless. A
priceless thing is only attained without a price, and that which is
attained for a price, is weaker than the listed price. Therefore if
anyone says, I will reveal to you the real essence, if you become my
disciple then, kindly join your hands in gesture “no thank you” and
keep a distance ! Understand this to be some Kaalnemi !
Kaalnemi, the demon, the false Guru came to Hanumanji and said –

“Ser majjan kari aatur aavahu; dicchaa devu gyaan jehi paavahu.”
(Manasa. Lankaa. 57:4)

On hearing this, Hanumanji said – first take the gift, thereafter
give the secret mantra, and immediately thereafter Hanumanji by
wrapping his tail around the demon, lifted him and threw him down.

God has clearly stated in the Gita –
“Uddharedaatmanaatmaanam naatmaanamvasaadayet
Aatmaiva hyaatmano bandhuraatmaiva ripuraatamanah” (Gita 6:5)

“A man must raise himself by his own effort. He must not degrade
himself; for the Self is his own friend and the Self is also his
own enemy.” (Gita 6:5)

The point is that man alone is responsible for his own spiritual
upliftment or downfall. No one else is. God has bestowed this human
body, and with it, he has given all the necessary tools to attain
salvation. Therefore, one does not need anyone else for one’s
salvation.

Guru (spiritual guide), Saints and God, uplift the soul only after
man himself has trust and faith in them. Only after man accepts them
(Guru, Saints, God), comes to them, and follows their directions. If
man does not accept them, then how are they to do anything for man’s
salvation? They simply cannot do anything. If you do not become a
student, then what can a teacher do for you? Just like some other
person can come and drop off a meal at your home, but the hunger
must come from within. If there is no hunger within, than what use
is there of delicious food preparations that are placed in front of
you?

Guru, Saint and God are never non-existent. There have been many
great Saints, Teachers, Gurus and Avatars (God’s manifestations on
Earth), but until now we have not attained salvation ! It becomes
clear from this, that we have not accepted them. Thus, in our
upliftment or downfall, we alone are responsible. Those who believe
that someone else is responsible for their upliftment or
degradation, they will never be uplifted. They can never be
benefited with this belief.

In reality, man himself is his own Guru – “Aatmano Gururaatmaiyva
Purushasya Vishehataha.” (Srimadbhag 11:7:20). Therefore discourses
are for your own self. Knowing this, see faults in your own self and
seek to remove them, instead of seeing faults in others.
