Pleasure has reaction of pain

In every man’s life, there are moments when, as it were, he feels suffocated, perspired and grasping for air, in a closed room. He shouts for free air, light and breeze, but he neither unburdens his heaviest garments, nor opens the windows, nor runs to the veranda. He is bound up with so many ropes, and is so much afraid even to talk about them to others, as also of the public ridicule and censure – ropes of hope, fears, infatuations, desires, ambitions, vices and weaknesses. The greatest reason for the same embarrassment is that he is not prepared to forego anything and pay the price. He is not for a substitution, but addition. He has not realized that no “bhoga” (enjoyment) can be had without “tyaga” (relinquishment).He wants to be nearest East and nearest West as well. He is not prepared to suffer or sacrifice the least, for a new attainment. He wants to grasp new things, without loosening his grip over the already possessed things. He wastes his whole life, in experimenting, in relying too much on his intellect and on outside assistance, and his tact of manipulations. He is for snatching what he is legitimately denied, under the Laws of Nature, Truth and Justice.

The Founder often speaks about,” Having the maximum energy , maximum leisure, maximum space  and maximum lightness in the brain and in the heart. Have the maximum conversation, about every pleasure having its reaction of pain and exhaustion or tiresomeness “.

Your paying off your debts on one side, but incurring new debts of a different nature on the other, takes you nowhere. First plug up the hole, from which water is getting into your boat, and then start the work of removing the already collected waters. First divide your mind two ways .Regarding not incurring additional liabilities; you must be cent per cent active. No more sins, no more vices; no more degenerations.

Don’t think even of your good acts and merits. That attachment to the meritorious actions of yours , will again entangle you. 

The Founder’s patent example is this. Suppose there is philanthropic, good hearted valiant man of brave fighting class, but somehow having a steeling habit. If he sees any beautiful and rich treasure, say, in a king’s palace, he cannot remain without   a cleverly managed successful stealing night raid. He has started in the Sadhana of controlling his bad habit. A fire breaks out in the city; he saves the lives of so many. He has come to believe as suggested above. “Don’t be licking your lips for the merits. Forego them.” He runs away, having done most the life saving meritorious work, without letting anyone who he is. The king of a palace is so very pleased with the bravery of the unknown philanthropic man .He offers a tempting prize. Do you think he would go to the tresureful palace to take his prize? No; no; with great difficulty. He has improved his thieving habits. Even if someone said to the king, it was this man, would he admit that? No. A man who is determined on his Sadhana foregoes every benefit, to avoid a possible of a slip.   
The Founder says,” If you are avaricious of getting the fruit of your merit, take my word, you will again be entangled. After kingship as the reward of the merits , comes the hell. After heaven, again one returns to the same rotten human world.

God as Mother : Names 651 to 660

LALITHA SAHASRANAM MAI SAHASRANAM

651)Vijnaatri विज्ञार्त्री – The Perceiver, the Knower. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र , नाम क्रमांक 651

652) Vedya-varjitaa वेद्यवर्जिता – Transcending all knowledge. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 652

654)Yogadaa योगदा – Bestower of Yoga, the science of meditation. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 654
655) Yogyaa योग्या – The enjoyed. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 655

Yoga योग is the union of individual soul with the Supreme Soul which results by a process after having controlled all senses with mind. Yoga results in being freed from the attachment from pain. Yoga is the restraint of mental modifications and mainly of four varieties – The Raja Yoga राजयोग , Hatha Yoga हठयोग , Mantra Yoga मन्त्रयोग and Laya Yoga लययोग .

The above is the popular interpretation of Yoga. Taking Yoga as union, it is the union of the enjoyer, the bestower of the enjoyment and the object of enjoyment. In a word the Bestower of enjoyment is the Mother, the enjoyer is the devotee and the enjoyed is the universe in the first instance and later She Herself. There is a stage when both are enjoyers of each other. During the last stages there is the unification of all these three as one. Next two remaining unified and finally one alone remains.

The highest form of Mother as Infinite Source of the essence of Sattwikness सात्विक alone is the bestower of enjoyment and may be called योगदा  Yogadaa. The next form with greater portion of Rajas रजस is the enjoyer, the devotee. Here She may be called Yogini योगिनी . And the third containing predominating portion of  immovability and material nature is that of the universe, In this She may be called Yogyaa योग्या.
656) Yogaanadaa योगानंदा – The bliss of union.
Whatever we experience  as bliss of union is She Herself. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 656

657) Yugandharaa युगंधरा – Bearer of the Yoke.    ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तो., नाम क्रमांक 657
We have referred to souls that take to approaching Her by knowledge. Yoga, devotion and Karma by which last, what is meant is remaining in the world with righteousness and practice of love and service , with Faith in Her and self-surrender to Her, with discharging of  one’s duties without the desire of fruit or the egotism of ownership or authorship.
One question crops up here, which is so often is used as an argument by the discouraging opponents. ” Does God come to fill in your bags  of corn ? Is not God’s subject good only for talking during leisure hours when nothing else is to be done ? If you are after God , is not even maintenance impossible ?

This word states that what has been often promised. “She bears the burden of those who try to follow Her path either as Jnanins ज्ञानी , Bhaktas भक्त , Yogis योगी  or Karma Nishthas कर्मनिष्ठ .
658) Ichhchaa-shakti-jnaana-shakti-kriyaa-shakti-svarupini  इच्छाशक्तिज्ञानशक्तिक्रियाशक्तिस्वरूपिणी – The energies of desire, wisdom and action. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 658

Desire is Her heart, wisdom Her head, action is Her feet. Thus Her body consists of three energies, Brahmaa, Vishnu and Mahesha are the Treasure Houses of the energies of desire or volition, cognition or wisdom and action. Of these energies the preceding one is the cause of succeeding.

Mother is the bestower of the energy of desire when Brahmaa, wishes to create. She bestows the energy of knowledge on Vishnu when She reminds him saying “Let this be done thus “. She is the bestower of the energy of action when Shiva wishes to wind up the universe for regeneration.

One fundamental energy is transmuted into these three energies which are again transmutable from one form to another. The desire energy is however the nearest to the original energy, just as it is the energy of the tree-life which is creative of fruit, stem and leaf; but the fruit is much nearer the seed than the leaf and the stem.Desire is mother , knowledge is son and action is the daughter. Desire is the individualiser, knowledge is the illuminator and action is the mover towards the fulfilment of desire with means supplied by knowledge. it is by these three energies that the working of the universe and the individual is governed and conducted.

It is the desire of ” I may continue to be ” ” I may be much ” ” I may be many ” which is the root cause of the working of universe and the individual. The first desire  is responsible for  self-centralization, the second for amassing wealth and the third for being attached to woman. It is therefore why wine, ( as life-buoyancy-giver ) wealth and woman have maddened the universe, in some form or another.

A man is nothing psychologically , but a bundle of his desires, as the goal and end. When the means of knowledge and action, he is exerting his best to reach the goal. viz., the fulfilment of those desires.
His desires determine his pleasures and pains, joys and sorrows, happiness and misery. Emotions follow those desires; character and behaviour is cast in the moulds of his desires. He tries to gather and master that knowledge alone , which is in rhyme with his desires, which would serve his desires.
Desire is the Supreme Queen whose minister is knowledge and who reflects herself in the child of action. Desire is mother, and both son and daughter follow her. In the worldly Physical Process mother sacrifices herself fully for the father, and the child is an outcome of their intermingled nature.

659) Sarvaadhaaraa  सर्वाधारा – Supporter of all.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 659
Mother is the supporter of all. Aadhaara आधार means support and Dhaaraa धारा means gradations and laws. She establishes grades, different diversities, and establishes government, although in the end , it is Mother Herself who is perceived  in all things , permanent or impermanent, gross , subtle or more subtle, embodied or disembodied, one or many and everywhere.

660) Supratishthaa सुप्रतिष्ठा – Firmly established and firm establisher. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 660

The peculiarity of Mother’s path is that once you have enrolled yourself you may from time to time get tired, disheartened and leave of exertions and return to lethargy or natural slow evolutionary progress and to the laissez faire policy but She would not leave you. She will make you get up and She will not leave you till you have done your evolutionary work. She will drag you and drive you whether you will or not till you finally reach your goal.

This reminds me of a funny story about Maayaa माया. 

Once two disciples of a sage on a river bank saw in the river flood something like a black blanket being dragged away. Naturally in their poor condition and cold winter one of them was tempted. He went into the river, caught the blanket but could not come out and the poor fellow was bawling out and was being dragged away downstream. Seeing the danger the other disciple on the bank shouted out instructions :- 
” Kambaliku chhoda do कंबली ( कमलीको ) को छोड दो ” = ” Leave off and let go the blanket “.
He answered , ” Maai ne to chhod diyaa hai, magar kambali muze nahi chhodati ”  मैने तो छोड दिया है मगर कमली ( कंबली ) मुझे नही छोडती = ” I have long since let her go, but she does not leave me. “
The fact was that what looked like the black blanket was a black she-bear.

Such is Maayaa, such is woman and such is Mother. The wisest man’s wisdom lies in securing their Grace and saving themselves.

My friend Sharadbhai S. Desai  came to scoff one day. He jocularly told me ” Will you not give a picture of Mother to me for worship ?” I could not deny, but once I gave him I had to apologize to Mother after his departure least he might instead of worshipping simply hang the picture in a line with Gohar Jan ( Actress ) or some other cinema star. He scoffingly ran ” in the river for the blanket.”

What is man’s most tempestuous and rebellious nature before Mother’s Grace ! Obligations over obligations, miracles after miracles, made the wolf to be the lamb. Marriage got settled, money for marriage came forth, earning avenue opened up, enemies became friends.

After only a fortnight, Mr. Desai who is a very humorous man came to me and very laughingly told me ,” I came to scoff, but your Mother has caught me from the neck , lifted me up and made me walk on the thread line She laid out”.
I answered him laughingly ” Kamali nahi chhodegi “. कमली नही छोडेगी । “The blanket will not leave you “. Kamali कमली is also the diminutive name of Kamalaa कमला , one of the names of Mother.

Sometimes it is said, that the mind turns always fully vanquished, and convinced of the impossibility of comprehending Mother, and again sometimes it is stated that by mind alone, She should be and will be perceived.

283) Sahasra-akshi सहस्राक्षी –  Thousand eyed. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 283

Mother looks at Her devotees, with unlimited energy  of seeing them and with unlimitedly charitable constructiveness in the matter of seeing their differences and deficiencies.

285) Aabrahma-kita-janani आब्रह्मकीटजननी – Mother of all from Brahma to worm.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 285

Brahmaa means the gross form of humanity taken collectively. Kita means the small insect, which lives on the spider’s thread. The idea is She is the mother of most enlightened and most philanthropic , and of the highest form of life, as also the most ignorant, harmful and lowest form of life.

 

 286) Varnaashrama-vidhaayini वर्णाश्रमविधायिनी – Establisher of castes and orders.ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 286

The relation of the nature of human being, and the community he belongs to, and the family in which he is born, and the relation of the outlook, inclination and mentality, during the different life stages of the living period, are of Her making.

 

287) Nijaajnaa-rupa-nigamaa निजाज्ञारूपनिगमा- ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 287

Whose commands are explained in scriptures. Scriptures are collection of truths which gives insight into the finalmost object to be attained and the means and the practical directions for the attainment of the finalmost Beatitude and oneness with Mother.

 

 288) Punyaapunya-phalapradaa पुण्यापुण्यफलप्रदा – Giver of the fruits of meritorious and unmeritorious actions. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 288
The respective results of bad and good actions are to be experienced in several fields. Viz.,1) of pains and pleasures; 2) of ignorance and enlightenment; 3) of disagreeable and agreeable environments;  4) of unrighteousness or righteousness; 5) of repulsiveness and attractivity, etc.some here and some in hell or heaven, hereafter.
A very vexing question is, whether a man is a free being or a bound one.

Does he act according to the dictates of his own will and conscience, or that of Mother ? If he acts under the prompting of Mother’s will, why should be held responsible , and suffer for good or bad actions ? Does not happiness of some and miseries of some, lead to an imputation of partiality and mercilessness on the part of Mother ?
The way out of this paradox is this. Do not mix up the two theories. First begin with “You are Master of your own fortune,” “Righteousness and unrighteousness depend on the doer.” “You suffer for what you have done now or before”. During this stage of yourself being the master, when you hear in this country of talks of all shades and opinions, that God does everything, understand it in this sense. “Everyone is able to do what he does, subject to the undoing or prohibition by higher authorities.” Under the same electric light, one is stealing valuables from a safe and other is taking out of purse, for handing it over to a charitable institute Secretary. The thief has succeeded in taking out money and  the donor has taken out the purse, both acts being indebted to the electric light. The thief has a serpent bite , and the donor sees before him his son rushing out with a revolver to finish him, if he is going to make him a beggar.
Both are free to act in the manner they like and yet there are some higher powers as well. The man does possess his free will, but it is within certain limits and again subject to circumstances , over which he has little control.


After realisation of the fact, that results are subject to higher control, the next stage for an aspirant should be “Whatever defective , undesirable and undeserved things are done, are done  by me; and whatever good is done by me is due to the promptings of the Mother. “


The third stage is “Whatever I do, good or bad, all that I do as prompted by Mother. “


If one has arrived at the third stage by actually wading through varied experiences , by the time he reaches that stage , all evil tendencies and passion have subsided, or even vanished, and it is impossible for him to think or do evil.

If you have honestly reached this stage, when you believe, that everything is done by you on prompting from the Mother, you soon get suspicious about your own wrong thoughts, desires and actions as Mother cannot prompt you to do evil things. Evil suggestions and decisions cannot be but yours.
Suppose that you have begun developing the idea that you are merely an instrument and that therefore you have left off censorship of your thoughts and actions, and further suppose that still some undesirable actions pass through your hands. In that case , if you are true to your belief, you have no right to question “why” when you suffer. To claim authorship of whatever good passes through your hands and to believe that the promptings of evil actions are from Mother, and to further claim that you should not suffer for them, on the ground that those promptings are from Mother, is simply unreasonable, unjust, foolish and selfish. If your action is of Her own will, your suffering also is of Her Own Will.
Be either wholly Hers, with cheerful and unconditional surrender to Her divine will, without questioning or hold yourself responsible for whatever happens to you. To reach from the latter inferior stage to the former superior  stage ; there is an immediate supreme stage of “All good is Hers, All evil is mine.”
The former belief is that of Sharnagati शरणागती  or Prapatti प्रपत्ती . There you should stop thinking, and be prepared to live enjoy or suffering of Mother’s desires. Say to yourself “Thy will be done.”Even this suffering may have a lofty purpose, which Mother alone knows.” “Mother will do nothing that is not finally for my welfare.” “I am not a true Sharanaagata, if I ask why and even if dissatisfied with my lot. On the top of everything be positive and say” My joy is to see Her Divine Will satisfied, and to lay no claim to any concession, exemption or exception, making or raising a complaint of injustice or mercilessness.”


Man is bound in the larger circle and free in the smaller circle. He is given a certain field, certain capacities and certain latitudes and limitations. To give capacities that are much beyond what is possible for every human being to utilize, would be a waste and often a source of burden, repentance, dissatisfaction and misery. How to utilize those capacities, how far to use them or allow them to rest or waste, is the matter of the free will of the man.


What playing cards you get, is a matter beyond your control, and yet if you are a good or a bad player, you often win or lose within certain limits.

 

Given the same circumstances, it is up to the man, to ascend higher or to descend lower. In that sense he is free. In the sense however strongly he may will, it is impossible for him to go beyond certain limitations, he is bound.


It is just like two sons leaving home with the equal amount of capital, but one returning with rich and the other a pauper. 


With the same body, means and intellect, you can be busy with worshipping or breaking a idol. You cannot do either if light or body fails and yet neither the light nor the body is responsible for your worshipping or breaking the idol.

“What you have” is Hers. “How you use is yours”. If you use well, you will be given better “have”s

 

289) Shruti-simantaa-sinduri-krit-paadaabja-dhulikaa श्रुतिसीमन्तसिन्दूरीकृतपादाब्जधूलिका – ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 289

She, the dust of whose Lotus feet forms the vermilion dust, spread on the different path-ways, formed by different partings of hair in the heads , of the deities representing different Shrutis and Smrutis  i.e. parts of Vedas.
This means that Scriptures-deities use the dust of Mother’s Lotus Feet, to serve as vermilion in the different hair-partings. What is conveyed is, that Scriptures personified as deities, not only hold Mother as Saviour but they cling to the Mother’s Lotus Feet, and place their dust on their heads , most reverentially and worship-fully. Scriptures also are incapable of expressing Her directly and describe Her by negation”Not this, Not that” etc.

The negation can be poetically described thus : A prince who ascended the throne, decided to find out his mother, who was reported to have escaped and remained incognito, to avoid danger from enemy. Possible mothers were being introduced to the prince and he went on saying “not this, not that” till finally, at once there was a dead silence. There was ceasing of even such words, “not this” or “not that”. Outside people concluded that the prince had found his mother.

 

290) Sakalaagama-sandoha-shukti-samputa-mauktikaa 

सकलागमसंदोहशुक्तिसंपुटमौक्तिका – ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 290

Mother’s nose-ring pearl is enclosed, well preserved, in the shell of the collection of the various scriptures of different religions. Sakalaagama सकलागम means  all scriptures, not of the Hindus alone.All scriptures, with all their highest efforts to try to fathom the nature and truths about the Mother, have been successful enough, just to be able to describe  not Her nature, not even Her body, but simply the pearl of an ornament of Hers. That ornament is also not one, that is in contact with any of Her limbs, but the pearl of a nose -ring.

“Mother ! Everything that all religions have to teach and everything  that all the great men of past of all nations have to give ; both put together, goes to form only the first Furlong Formula , to the way-fairer on the long long infinite way to Thee, I have never come to Thee,  tracing my way, Thyself has lifted me  away to Thy mysterious mansion.”

I refuse to learn, but from Thee. Lead, Thou lift, Thou shed Thy Grace, Thy Will, Thou make me follow, Thou, make Thy wicked son to lie, in Thy Lotus Feet.

 246)  Paarvati पार्वती – The mountain daughter. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र नाम क्रमांक 246
 Mother is at times extremely hard-hearted and in that sense, She is the daughter of mountain- a rock, a stone. Paarvati is an ideal of chastity, and She is extremely severe to those devotees of Her, who are loose in their sexual behavior and character though of course She is severe, with a view to give a tremendous moral lift.


No person should therefor be a special devotee of Mother in the Paarvati form, unless he has extremely staunch and firm and perfectly pure in morality. There instances of devotees having turned lunatic, who had no control over their morals and worshipped Mother as Paarvati.


The same idea of exemplary chastity and austere celibacy  is seen in Paarvati’s first son Kaartikeya, If any lady worships or enters  a Kaartikeya temple, it is believed that she would shortly be a widow.


Paarvati is known her Her unbounded anger in cases of breach of breach of chastity, so much so, that she has not desisted from kicking Her own husband Shiva, at the slightest suspicion of a breach of chastity.(Please vide Shloka 86 of Saundarya Lahari).

249) Panchapretaasanaasinaa पंचप्रेतासनासीना Seated on the seat(formed) of five corpses. ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 249

When deprived of their respective  gifts of Shaktis from Mother, the five principal deities are incapable of action and thus deprived of their power, they are like corpses.

The principal deities are Brahma, Vishnu, Rudra, Shiva and Sadaashiva. Their powers enabling them to be what they are, are Vaamaa, Jeshtaa, Raudri, Shiva and Shakti respectively.

The corpses refereed to may also be taken to be Jiva, Prakriti, Buddhi, Ahankaara and Manas. 

Mother is, as it were enjoying rest on the bed sheet of the heart of the devotee, as if She were taking rest after strenuous work of spiritual uplift of the devotees. When She after a little rest for the final Grace shower looks at Her devotee, one devotee as it were becomes five-fold, or five devotees. Two of theses are lost in Her bewitching eyes, one in Her smile and two in Her Lotus Feet. These five devotees are corpses before Mother showers Grace on them by looking, in the sense of being fully devoid of  any energy whatever. They are corpses again, after the spiritual unification with Mother, in the sense of having merged their individuality in Mother. Devotees are corpses just before and after communion with Mother.

 

250) Pancha-brahma-svarupini   पंचब्रह्मस्वरूपिणी –  Of whom the five Brahmans are the five forms.Scriptures says,”The unconditioned Brahma by the play of Maayaa becomes five-conditioned Brahmaas, viz., “Brahmaa, Vishnu, Mahesha, Ishvar and Sadashiv.” Some explain five Brahmas to mean Jiva (soul), Prakriti (inborn nature),Ahankaar (egoism), Manas (mind) and Buddhi (discriminative faculty).  ललिता सहस्रनाम स्तोत्र, नाम क्रमांक 250
