FORM OF SANYASI-GURU
AS TOLD BY SUKAR MAHARISHI
1 Generally people live for gains and retentions with the pretentions and are branded as required for this age. As Alexander could not hold what he won so too all such realize their folly. The pity of it is real value is jibed at, made fun of, ignored, insulted, fail to analyze, and even if god were present right in front ,majority could not recognize or has the capacity to recognize ,the reality. Even certain gurus praised as wealth of their sect, do not understand what was the cause of action for such appreciation, other than few preachings, texts, poems, treatise and swaying away from the median out of their contempt towards the reality that was / is in existence.
2 It existed from time immemorial, even from Vedic periods and the Maya makes the blind fold of the people at large. They are still running after and getting disappointed after losing what they thought had gained “only because of them”. For a majority these false gurus and sanyasis are greater than the TRUTH ---EKAM. Certain sects and its leaders out of fervent attachment to those concepts of false-presentations believed them to be true and ignored their real wealth of the nation. Such descendents who were called running Bhakthi movements, without understanding the broad basis of the treasure they had and with self-centered interests to hold their flags high, dared for insertion in great texts of the nation, as if told by ancestors, as their principle and belief as ekam.
3 Certain heads being erudite became worse in stature, in their verbal vituperations against the Reality. There were real guides and Siddha Purushas who delivered the right materials for the real seekers to learn and so sanathana dharma is unshakeable, inspite of all the earth quakes and tsunami created by such NEGATIVE THOUGHT CLAN CREATERS WHO EXISTED, EXISTING AND WILL CONTINUE TO EXIST. In this view people cannot be altered because of their ignorance (Aviveka) and because they don’t go thro the assets of this nation to understand and follow, and simply think whatever said and herd is enough and they don’t know how to think the negative aspects, fell / fall a prey, hit from pillar to post, hiding their experiences. For fear of shame and for the fear of coming out openly for security of society, they remain in big numbers. That reticence and the ignorance to learn put them off and cut inroads to certain dare-devil pretenders to become a showy, well learned, glitterers. Few could even succeed if sufficient numbers get glued, in all religions.
4 I present this not with the hope of an awakening on my words but will those in slumber, have the sensible reaction after careful thinking? No one need to think this is written by an atheist. Never. In India, we have, staunch believer-come-what may (NON-ATHIEST) AND ignorant or clever atheists, who do not wish to toil to find, but would expect someone to peel the plantain and feed them. I do not belong to either.
5 I am a firm believer, with the right type of understanding and dig more for expansive views and keep self always in learning further and further and search for finer spectrum, and wonder what the real sanyasis, sages and Raja rishis (whom I name as scientists of that era) and so many real mahanubavulu have contributed to this nation, which is ignored by people. I could not understand 99% of which I am after, but the 1%, flabbergast me. It all started from Ramakrishna elementary and goes on. Yet I am an elementary student only. Thanks for my father who made me learn Sanskrit. I thank my institutions who preached many things to sift and learn.
6 Today’s peril of the society is because even the best schools are gagged under the name of NON THRUST CONCEPT, differentiated according to the whims and fancies of the institutions. West learn from us and I would go to the extent of telling that THE BEST EXPOSURES ARE FROM THEWEST IN MATERIALS, AND AT THE SAME TIME ,THE WORST IS ALSO FROM THEM ONLY ,NOT BECAUSE OF THEIR FERVOR FOR THEIR RELIGION BUT BECAUSE (1) WE DID NOT LEARN WELL (2) WE SOLD OURSELVES TO THEM FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE (3) WE DID NOT DO OUR RESEARCH AND INTELLIGENCE,BU T COPIED WITHOUT ANALYSIS OR UNDERSTANDING WHETHER IT COULD BE TRUE (4) WE NEVER CARED TO GO BEHIND OUR ARCHIVE HIDDEN BENEATH AND PILFERRED FROM HERE (5) WE IGNORED, INSULTED AND ISSUED NEGATIVE ASPECTS FOR THE VESTED INTERSTS OF CASTE AND CREED, THOUGH USE THEM IF NECESSARY TO AUGMENT THE PROSPECTS.
7 So west wish to follow us and we follow the west where the projected intelligentsias are PINAM THINNUM CHATHIRANGAL. This is karma boomi and at least good sanyasis can raise the standard of the country by feeding the slumber instead of wasting their money on glittering unsuited for them. NOW MAHARISHI SUKAR IN MAHA BHAGAVATHAM:
Yasyam sandarmanayam yoginomathithlakshana: 2.1.21
Repeated attempts at concentrating the mind will lead to devotion of yogis.
Yatha sandharyathe brahman dharana yatra sammatha?: 2.1.22
King asks: How the concentration is practiced?
Jithasano jithaswasojithasango jitendriya:sthoole bhagavatho rope
Mana sandharayeddhiya: 2.1.23
Sukar says; he who conquered the posture,breadth control,conquered attachments, conquered Indriyasfixes his mind on the gross form of lord or sthoola roopam of bhagavan.
Siddhe anyatharthe na yateth tathra parisramam tatra sameeshamana: 2.2.3
Discriminating mind shall seek such objects absolutely necessaryfor him to live a healthy life.Even in that he shall remain unattached and and convinced about its ephimerality.
Satyaam shithou kim kashipo prayasai bhahow svasidhe hupavarhanai: kim
Satya jalaou kim purudha annapatraya digval kaladhow sathi kim dukulai: 2.2.4
Why strain to get a bed? –when the re is mother earth to lie down !
Why seek pillow for head ?—when the arm is there to support?!
What is the need for vessels and plates?—when can eat and drink in hand-palms! Why seek clothes when there is bark tree peelings !that too to cover the nakedness !
Cheerani kim pathi na santhi dishanthi bisham naivanga gripa parabrutha saritha: apyasushan // rudha guhya kim jithovathi nopasannaan kasmat bhajanthi kavayo dhan durmadha aandhan // 2.2.5
Do not find rags on the travel roads? Do not have trees in travel bearing fruits ? do not those trees refuse to give biksha for resting underneath? Do not you find water in any stream? Do the entrance to caves and caverns got barred to enter ? did the god refused give protection to those who seek him?
WHY THEN THE SPIRITUAL SEEKER—YOGIN-SANYASI- BECOME DEPENDANT ON RICH MEN INFATUATED WITH THE EVIL PRIDE OF THEIR WEALTH?
Hence respect to seniors, elders, kingship, sanyasis, gurus are to be rendered without disturbing them from their conduct. Leave them alone to do their things. They have renounced all and so do not need your comfort and wealth. Your greed make them more hungry for money and comfort and so you earn the sin of affecting them. You try to know what is in scriptures, understand and try to follow as for as possible. When one does honestly neither he needs publicity nor give those unnecessary publicities. After all religion is your personal asset and making it communal is a crime. When sanyasi needs only few fruits, water on the pathway, arm and earth to sleep, why do you give them the throne and golden cot and protein food and stacking of money?. Nandrum theedum pirar thara vara. No one can bear your pain ,for your cure. Love and affection shall never be mis-construed.
