The distinguished authors of scriptures throughout the world have presented their theories based on the aims of attaining four purusharth (object of desire)
– Dharma (holy deed), Artha (worldy possessions), Kaam (for sense organ) and Molsha (salvation) – but the philosophy of Shri KripaluJi Maharaj is unique and exceptional amongst them. According to Him, none of the four velours provides ‘Jeev’ its absolute aim because Jeev is the eternal servant of Shri Krishna.
The completeness and authenticity of their service is in getting the Divine Love of Shri Krishna. He considers ‘salvation’ as a Divine valour but not the ultimate aims. Rest three are worldly valours. ‘Jeev’ is a fraction of’God’. ‘The Geeta’ and ‘The Ramayan’ prove this-
– The Ramayan.
– The Geeta.
That is why, the root of joy of Jeev is in, to love the God and attain Him. Due to misapprehension of mind and wrong decisions taken by one’s wits, ‘Jeevs’ are roaming in search of peace and pleasure, being servant of sense organs in various worldly forms, things, and colours. Shri MaharajJi has made efforts to explain it in the simplest way through his courses and verses that- the fifth valour of the ‘Jeev’ is to attain the Divine Love of Shri Krishna and nothing else and it is only the uppermost and ultimate aim of ‘Jeev’. He is the part of blissful God, so he cannot be happy even after getting the greatest worldly things; rather he continues roaming in the desire of attaining the eternal pleasure.
Sri MaharajJi has been explaining innumerable times that there is no need of watering all the leaves of a tree individually; rather the nourishment of the tree is fulfilled by mere maturing and watering its root. Similarly, by practicing devotion of Shri Krishna, the ultimate aim, to be bestowed with Divine Love, is fulfilled. In addition to it, the attainment of all the four valours-‘Dharma’, ‘Artha’, ‘Kaam’, ‘Moksha’ is also persuaded.
ShriChaitanyaMahaprabhu has stated in His ‘Ahstapadi’ that Shrikrishna’s names, forms, virtues, pastimes and abode integrated Sankirtan’ (continuous chanting of all these) is of uppermost level’ Anandambudhivardhanam’. It means, the intensive power of eulogizing the name of God (NaamSankirtan) is such that, in association to it, ‘Jeev’, the part and parcel ofShrikrishna, also becomes blissful. The freedom from Maya (worldly illusion) is compulsory for attaining the eternal Bliss. Without the grace of God, the very powerful Maya, partial power of Shyamsundar cannot cease following jeev. When a ‘Jeev’, being completely surrendered, begs bewailing before the Krishna, then only he gets God’s kripa (favour).
ShriKrishna Himself has accepted it in the Geeta-
‘Mamev Ye PrapadyanteMayametanTarantite’.
It means, only those who takes my shelter, he can be released from the bondage of Maya. The unique philosophyof ShriMaharajJi is clearly expressed in these lines of’Prem Ras Madira’-
Dharma ArtharuKaam Moksha rus, sabailagatmofikoree.
Girija -ajajaladhijadurlabh, piyatraas-rusbrajkhoree.
Kah ‘Kripalu’ us Sadgururinteurinnakotikalpkoree.
In spite of vivid religions, sects, doctrines, divergent and diverse views formed by various philosophers, he accepts the existence of only two religious sect ShriKrishna sect and Maya sect. According to Him, all people belong to ShriKrishna’s sect. Due to ignorance, they adopt the Mayic Sect, where as the only factual aim of all ‘jeev’ is to attain the eternal pleasure. Shri Maharaj Ji is a unique spiritual guide. He has made the way of absolute welfare of ‘jeev’ extremely easy by directing him towards the devotion of Shri Krishna and proclamations ‘Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum’. Shri Maharaj Ji, an unparallel welfare eager spiritual guide, gives the slogan- ‘Krishnam Vande Jagadgurum’ in place of popular guru-shishya pararnpara (spiritual guide and disciple tradition). By declaring this, he has guided the perpetual misled, grief-stricken and miserable jeev towards the path of Shri Krishna Bhakti and leaded hand in proceeding on the way to utmost benediction. ShrihMaharaj Ji is such a benevolent that he has accepted the responsibility to revert all those ‘jeevs’, towards absolute destination by holding his finger himself, who like an innocent child, standing deviated at the road crossing.
