Dear Velukkudi swami,
Most of the top richest persons got divorced, with Bill Gates the latest.
What is the summary to learn? What could be the general reason for their divorces, given the persons are so rich.
Please listen to Enpani 294, 419. As Swami has said in multiple upanyasams, if the couple understands the true purpose of marriage, which is serving the Bhagavan and his Bhagavatas, and not for self-enjoyment, divorce, and many issues will disappear. Koorathalwar, broke the negative impact of dosam that Andal had by clarifying and living this true purpose.
adiyen believe that we should certainly care as it sets a wrong example to common people and derails the foundations of Sanatana dharma. so whatever in our capability, we can do we should try to pass on the message of true purpose of marriage to the younger generation that will avoid this is in the future. adiyen’s nephew went through a similar situation influenced by these high-profile divorces and they are also pretty rich young educated god worshiping couple. We went through a rough patch recently, which could’ve been avoided but adiyen realized it so late.
Srimathe Ramanujaya Namaha,
There is a concept called “Yathercheya SUkritham” that Vishista Advaita Poorvacharyas has said which adiyen has heard in Velukkudi Swami’s upanyasams.
What it means is, “a human receiving accidental blessings from BHagavAN Sriman Narayana even though their action was NOT with an intention to do a Punya karma or a Kainkaryam knowingly” from Velukkudi Swami’s upanyasams as:
என் ஊரை சொன்னாய்,
என் பேரை சொன்னாய்,
என் அடியார்க்கு நிழல் குடுத்தாய்
So one receives Yathercheya SUkritham for all such actions done. So these Materialistic persons grow more due to their PUnya karma increasing accidentally, because one or the other way, their developments are being utilized by a SriVaishnava knowingly or unknowlingly.
In the above list, there is a Materialistic developer whose name is missed but he is not divorced but he has received Yathercheya SUkritham from SriKRishna before he died. His name is Steve Jobs (Apple Owner).
Before he started a company, he was very poor and struggled in his life, but after having SriKrishna Prasadham knowingly or unkowingly, his life changed due to SriKRishna’s blessings due to Yathercheya SUkritham.
You can read or listen his full speech in this link, but a small portion from his speech for the Yathercheya SUkritham section as follows.
I didn’t have a dorm room, so I slept on the floor in friends’ rooms, I returned Coke bottles for the 5¢ deposits to buy food with, and I would walk the 7 miles across town every Sunday night to get one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna temple. I loved it. And much of what I stumbled into by following my curiosity and intuition turned out to be priceless later on.
So these Materialistic developers either married or divorced doesn’t matter?, once their credit (punya karma) hits rock bottom, then they will face the hardships and come to Sharnagathy on BHagavAN Sriman Narayana Lotus feet on this Janma or some Janma, since Punya KArma or Paapa Karma doens’t lead to Moksham, just BHagavAN krupai Leads to MOksham.
Other REAL TIME examples in our period:
Why Adiyen picked these two real time examples are to show how one can be Odd or Naasthika in their life, still can get Perumal blessings if they do any action accidentally that is in favour of BhagavAn and HIS devotees, though their actual intention was not to accomplish a good dharmik deed.
This Yathercheya SUkritham leads one to increase punya karmas, so the idea of BHagavAN is that, it will help them to reduce their further paapa actions, so that at some point they also become devotees of Permual by doing SHarnagathy.
Todays’ Aasthika’s (Thesist) are either past Naaasthikaas (Athesist) or Materialistic enjoyers.
Adiyen (ElayaAlwar) Srinivasa (DhoddayacharyAr) Dasan.
Amazing explanation ElayaAlwar swami. Beautifully explained the “yadruchaya sukrutam” concept.
This is the answer adiyen was looking for as specific reason. Could not correlate or come up with “yadruchaya sukrutam” concept for these divorces due to adiyen’s agnyanam.
Would like to discuss more on these fine aspects (Vignyanam) in this forum apart from ritualistic doubts.
Thank you all.
