Sri Ramanuja Munaye Namaha,
Sri Velukkudi Krishnan Guruve Namaha,
Asmadh Sarva Gurubyo Namaha,
Beautifully said Bhagavata regarding “Acharya Nindanai & Bhagavata Apacharam” a Road block for Sathva Guna Improvement (good thoughts) & road block for Athma Ujjivanam (Moksham/Kainkaryam).
Here is a reference from Swami Vedanta Desikan’s “RahasyatrAya saAram Grantham as to why one does the above two sins are due to:
a. Athma gunangal illathathaal / ஆத்ம குணங்கள் இல்லாததால் (No demonstration of Athma gunas in daily life) ,
b. Indhriya Nigraham illathathaal / இந்திரிய நிக்ரஹம் இல்லாததால் (no control of our SENSES like mind, eyes, ears, nose, hands, mouth etc…like ask anything (questions etc…) to anyone (like Mahans/Acharyas) based on what pops-up in our corrupt mind without even validating if it is worth asking to Mahans/Acharyas. Moreover we don’t even feel EMPATHY for what we have asked to Mahans/Acharyas, but still we keep repeating the same mistake over and over again to satisfy our ego or thoughts instead of following the Poorvacharyas Vachanams etc…,)
c. Oraey Koorayin keezh Paampudan Vasippadhaal / ஒரே கூரையின் கீழ் பாம்புடன் வசிப்பதால் [Ourselves “Athma” sleeping in same bed with the Snake (Body), means we are considering body and athma are same and feeding ONLY the bodily ego needs by keeping the Athma in heat]
Anyone who has evil/vulgar thoughts by MIND or by Speech or by Physical behaviour, then we are termed as “Mlecchan“. But the good solution that our Poorvachayas say is, if such Mleccha like us,
1. Later Repent for our past mistakes (apacharam),
2. Taking oath to Stop doing such mistakes (apacharam) further,
3. And we devote ourselves in service of ALMIGHTY SUPREME GOD through our own faith Hinduism or Christianity or Islam, then we are called as A BAKTHA (DEVOTEE).
So we DONT need to focus on comforting ourselves by looking if others also have similar evil thoughts or not, since it doesn’t resolve ones own personal issue. Instead the focus should be on how to control these, which will bring the actual comfort to ourselves.
So how to control these three things a,b,c are by doing:
* ThiruAradhanai to Perumal daily,
* Dhyanam on Acharya Thirumeni daily with OPEN eyes like looking at Swami Ramanujar vigraham or photo for few minutes or more,
* Acharyan Kainkaryam,
* Satvika Shravanam,
* Satvika Satsangam,
* Neecha Bhaavam and
* following the 8 characterics of How a Bhaktha should behave as mentioned in earlier thread as per Poorvacharyas vachanam
8 TRUE CHARACTERISTICS OF A DEVOTEE (BHAKTHA),
- என்னுடைய பக்த ஜனங்கள் பக்கல் வாத்சல்யம் உள்ளவனாய்,
- என்னுடைய ஆராதனத்தில் உகப்பு உள்ளவனாய்,
- தானே ஆராதிக்கயும்,
- ஏன் பக்கல் டம்பம் அற்று இருக்கையும்,
- ஏன் கதையை கேட்ட்கும் இடத்தில், பக்தியும்
- பக்தி கார்யமான ஸ்வர நேத்ர அங்கங்களில் விஹாரமும்
- என்னையே எப்போதும் நினைக்கையும்,
- என்னை ப்ரயோஜனாந்திர கொள்ளாது ஒழிகையும்,
Once we do all these regularly, then the above three things a,b,c gets in to control automatically due to BhagavAt Anugraham, and finally Sathva Guna improves (no more evil/vulgar/egoistic thoughts will pop-up by Mind or by Speech or by Physical, it gets settled down), and finally our “Athma Ujjivanam (Moksham) escape from Samsaram like a rocket🚀” happens due to the JagadhaAcharyar Swami Ramanujar’s KRUPAI in SAME BIRTH…🙏🎇
All these are applicable to each one of us.
So instead of just asking a question, and leaving the answer in air (without actually implementing in our life by following it), will only drown us in this Samsaram. So let’s review ourselves and see, if atleast we started following the answers of the questions that we have asked so far. If not, let’s start following first and if we doubhts in following it, then we can further extended ourselves to ask a question based on the doubts politely before proceeding further. Those who ask questions for the sake of time-pass without any intention of following it ,will never get an answer from Mahans/Acharyas, as it is not worth to share Poorvacharyas Golden Words to some stray people.
So let’s follow/implement/Accept Poorvacharyas Vachanams in our life first which is known to us through Swami’s ThiruvAdi. So to show grattitude, let’s keep saying:
