(Continued from previous day)

A recluse used to pray to Ganeshji (made of gold). He wanted to go to Rameshwar but did not have the money. He went to a goldsmith and said to him Brother! This is my Ganeshji and this is His mouse. Take these and in exchange give me money. The goldsmith weighed them both and said, this is what the Ganeshji is worth, and this is worth of the mouse. What are you saying foolish one said the recluse! The mouse is only the vehicle but Ganeshiji is his Master, how can they both be worth the same? The goldsmith said – “O’ Ascetic! I am not talking about Ganeshji and the mouse; I am only talking about the gold.”

Eknaathji Maharaj has written in the Bhagwat, Chapter 11, that there is an idol of Lord Vishnu in gold and another statue of a dog in gold. Lord Vishnu is exalted and precious, and the dog is lowly and insignificant. However, since the weight is the same, both are priced the same. Outwardly if one sees then there is a great difference between the two, but if one looks at the gold, then there is no difference between the two! Similarly, in the world there is someone who are great souls, some evil souls, some sinners, some good men, some wicked, some with good conduct, some with evil conduct, some religious, some sinners, some learned, some ignorant – this is all outward perception, but if one sees in essence, then all-in-all there is only one God. That one God alone has come in many forms. One who knows, is able to recognize him, others are not able to comprehend.

Just like in a mango grove there are trees. There is not a single mango on them, but the one who really knows, his sight is on the mangoes and call it as a mango grove. A realized great soul is maintains equanimity –

“Vidhyavinaysampanne brahmane gavi hastini |
Shuni chaiva shravpaake cha pandittaah samdarshinah || (Gita 5/18)

“Sages equate a learned and humble brahmana, a cow, an elephant or even a dog, or a lowly (outcaste), as they see with equal vision (i.e. seeing divinity in all).”

Brahmane pulkse stene brahmanyerk sphulingke |
Akrure kroorke chaiva samdruk pandito matah || (Srimad Bhagwat 11/29/14

He remains equal visioned (equanimous) with that Brahmin and that outcaste, that devotee of Brahmin or a thief, Sun and candle, compassionate and cruel, that devotee is called a Jnani (Knower of Truth).

Similarly those great souls who see Paramatma that is with equal vision, they gain victory over life.

“Ihaiva tairjitah sargo yeshaam saamye sthitam manah | (Gita 5/19)
He whose mind is vested in equanimity, he conquers the entire world even here.

In other words they are free of attraction – repulsion, elation-dejection etc. Their equanimity remains unwavering and firm at all times. When there is nothing else besides God, then who hates and who does he hate?

Uma je Ram charan rat bigat kaam mad krodh |
Nij prabhumaya dekhahin jagat kahi san karahin birodh ||
(Manas, Uttar. 112 Kha)

Question: When everything is only God then where did the differences come about in the inert, sentient, perishable-imperishable etc.

Answer: These differences have come from man himself. In other words, man himself has caused these differences, and he alone can get rid of them, therefore the responsibility of getting rid of the differences lies in man’s hands. God has said in the Gita that this world has been assumed by man – “Jeevabhootaam mahaabaaho yayedam dhaaryate jagat” (Gita 7/5) . If there is no likes-dislikes, if the is equanimity then this world will appear as a form of God only. (to be continued)
