Three life Lessons from Shri Maharaj Ji
Enlightenment of Divine goal for every Soul
All the Jeevs of the innumerous universe are parts of the eternal emblem of neverending bliss, God. Therefore naturally Jeev wishes to become Sachhidananda . Up until they do not get the Sadghan, Chidghan, Ananandghan, this Supreme Bliss, they will keep trying to attain the same. Therefore, to attain that eternal bliss, it becomes highly inevitable subject of search for the true Sadhana for each Jeev.
Devotion dismisses any room for self-oriented actions. Even wishing for Moksha too is counted as the sign of Sakamata and the very name of devotion of God is Nishkamata (selflessness). The sadhana which includes the self is harmful for the sadhak. Therefore, every Jeev must possess a selfless love for Shri RadhaKrishna, which is supposed to be his singular aim.
The inclusion of Roopdhyan is highly indispensable. Without Roopdhyan, Sadhana is like a soulless corpse. Roopdhyan becomes mature with regular practice. Along with Roopdhyan, doing the sankirtan of the names, the features, the Leelas of God while cleansing the soul with warm tears, finally leads Guru to make the Jeev realize his ultimate aim of attaining God.
Shri Shankracharya Ji
As per the tradition of original ‘Jagadgurus’, Adi Shankaracharya is considered to be the first Jagadguru that this world has been blessed with. He appeared in this world around 2500 years ago. His aim was to bring the Sanatan Vedic Dharma into the limelight and encourage us to follow Vedic religion, henceforth diminishing the ill-effects of false religions. His philosophy is known as ‘Advaitavad’ and it forms the basis for the teachings of the path of Gyaan.
As per His Teachings, God is formless and a non-performer of actions. He also stated-The God is pure and exists eternally, having unlimited knowledge and Divine bliss. He further claimed the world to be an illusion and the soul is a combined effect of God and Maya.
With His own unique interpretations of the Vedas, Shankaracharya positioned Himself between a theist and an atheist, and at times He appeared to be a supporter of both. He adopted this stand to lay the foundation for future theistic evolution.
Shri Madhvacharya Ji
Jagadguru Madhvacharya appeared about 700 years ago and was a staunch believer of ‘Dvaitvad’ philosophy.
He stressed on the attainment of God as the only purpose of the soul and that God, Maya and soul are three different entities. It is only through devotion that an individual soul can attain God realisation and liberation.
He said that our actions of our past lives determine the kind of lives we get. We should not be affected either by sorrow or happiness. In whatever situation we may fall into, constant remembrance of the Lord will help us sustain. There is nothing greater than thinking about, listening to, remembering and praising God’s name and virtues.
Jagadguru Shri Kripalu ji Maharaj…
A landmark in the spiritual history took place when Shri Kripalu Ji Maharaj gave a profound series of lectures at the invitation of ‘Kashi Vidvat Parishad’, a body of 500 scholars of India who collectively is considered to be the apex body of spiritual learning.
Shri Maharaj Ji spoke for ten days revealing the sweetest secrets of the Hindu scriptures. With great ease, he reconciled the different philosophies and contradictions in the Vedic scriptures and the different views of the previous Jagadgurus to reveal the true path of God realisation for the welfare of all humankind.
To their astonishment, the 500 scholars were deeply moved by the philosophy put forward by Shri Maharaj Ji and they unanimously acclaimed him as Jagadguru, Spiritual master of the world. They further added that he was ‘Jagadguruttam’ or Supreme amongst all the Jagadgurus. Amongst the various accolades that they showered upon him was, ‘Bhakti-Yog-Rasavatar’ or the personification of the Bliss of Devotion.
Shri Nimbarkacharya Ji
Jagadguru Nimarkacharya appeared shortly after Jagadguru Ramanujacharya (11th century A.D). His philosophy is known as ‘Dwaitadvaitvad’. He preached that although there is a perfect duality between God and soul, yet the soul is also simultaneously one with God.
Being a part of God, the purpose of the soul is to receive God’s grace and to realise him. The soul’s ultimate spiritual welfare is accomplished through devotion to the personal form of God. He perceived himself to be a servant of the Master (God), and introduced whole hearted devotion to Radha-Krishna.
Shri Ramanujacharya Ji
Having appeared 1000 years ago, he preached ‘Vishisht Advaitavad’ (qualified non dualism), contrary to Jagadguru Shankaracharya’s philosophy.
According to him, God is not only the creator, Lord of the universe, but also omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent. His Divinity is beyond any limitations. He stated that the soul is a fractional part of God and is meant to serve him. He made it obvious that the God resides in the heart of every soul.
His main focus was on the path of devotion (Bhakti) and that it was the only means of God realisation. He laid great emphasis on Bhakta (devotee) to renounce all material attachments, remove prideful ego and to remember God’s name always and be keen to serve him throughout. With his Divine grace only a soul can attain the Supreme Divine Bliss.
