MYSTISM (Rahasyavadi/Adhyamik) DEEP BUT HIDDEN MEANING
TRUTH (SATYA) & ATAINMENT OF TRUTH
The Truth could be attained through sincere thoughts, actions while abiding by righteous character, righteous Karmic deeds based on sincere thoughts. In other words, what we get through myriad of experiences so as to reach to a beyond-question and imperative conclusion ia truth. This could be in scientific experiments, mathematical calculations, geographical or historical truth could be proved any time and space. It is fundamentally based on demonstrable truth. It is based on dignity/modesty (Maryada) and best practices which are held dear by civilized persons. Such individuals can even make supreme sacrifice for upholding truth. A truthful individual is spiritually oriented in actions and karmic deeds.
While truth literally means what is real, exact, an absolute fact, an aspect whose correctness cannot be questioned, with unquestionable precision, etc. when it is a statement of fact the accuracy of which could be tested at any time or space.
According to Bible it has justifiably been said: Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.
Guru Nanak Dev Ji has very clearly enunciated : True is the Master, True is His name and True ones have Ones have recited His name with the utmost adoration.
The wisdom suffusing and truthful words of Prophet Mohammad are the guides to understand truth – No man can attain a firm faith unless he developed strength of character and that cannot be achieved unless one acquires the habit of speaking the truth.
It has rightly been enunciated God is Truth and Truth is God. The Satya of God remains above everything else. Sat-Chit-Ananda, One who combines in Himself Truth, Knowledge and Bliss. God is SAT-CHIT & ANANDA. In other words, the God graces us with love which ultimately bestows us ecstasy or bliss.
Sat means truth, absolute which is unchanging and enduring or unending or permanent.
Chit is the consciousness, awareness, realization, understanding
Ananda is absolute bliss or ecstasy – a condition or situation of happiness, a joyous existence.
Taken together SAT-CHIT-ANANDA it is a absolute truth with fully awareness and gives us eternal happiness or ecstasy or heavenly feeling.
Truth(Sat)-Consciousness/awareness/self-realisation-ecstasy) (Jaagarookata). It is also termed as the triple awareness – a most advanced awareness which only a few of the Yogi can attain. It is an absolutely blissful state which is attained through complete connectivity with Absolute Truth. In other words, it is ultimate reality with eternal or supremely blissful experience of pure awareness.
It is a fact that God is Truth and eternal truth is the one which can be realized by a Yogi by following a self-realized existence bereft of any attachment to the fruits of any action.
A TRUTHFUL PERSON IS FEARLESS
A truthful person fears not from anything and anybody under the sun. He takes pride in performing his assigned job with sincerity and sense of purpose. He hardly adopts any shortcuts in carrying out his duties. It should also be borne in mind that relative truth or untruth depends on the time, space and outward appearance. It is because the duty performed may be good at a particular occasion but not at other occasion. For example, as per Hindu Astrology, there are times which are considered to be auspicious and the others inauspicious. For example, dawn is considered auspicious whereas dust could be good or bad too. This is termed as relative truth – in relation to time, space and form. Then there are things which are good for a particular person but not appropriate for others. There are people who like loud music but there are others who shut their ears on hearing the loud music. In this time too is a relative truth. Women is personification of truth reflecting Shakti or power of huge proportion.
A PERSON WHO IS TRUTHFUL REMAINS SPIRITUALLY ORIENTED
When a person is well-known for speaking the truth (Satya), for such a person, every occasion good or not so good is equal and has immense significance. For such a person, there is no disharmony at any situation or condition. Through spiritual practice of highest order and sincere Karmic deeds one can establish himself on the highest pedestal where there is no discord in any environ. In this sort of situation, one can understand anything and everything. This stage could also be attained through self-introspection, self-visualization, self-awareness or self-consciousness. Having this attained this juncture; we live a detached mental state.
WITHOUT ACTION OUR THOUGHTS REMAIN PURPOSELESS
Where there is action, there is motion. Time is the mental dimension of dynamism in action. Where there is no action, there is neither mind nor time. Life without action we become static which brings in its wake more ignorance and pain too. If you are unconscious, then, you will not be aware of the lapse of the time lost. Action and mind are relative truths and consequently, time is also a relative truth. It is incorrect to say that time is eternity without end and without break or limit. Time cannot exist without space and creations involved in these considerations.
ETERNAL BLISS COULD BE ATTAINED BY FOLLOWING TENETS OF TRUTH
Human beings derive or try to derive pleasure from objects, big or small, but they cannot get eternal bliss from these objects which is in fact a relative truth. Therefore, sages devote themselves to the entity free from bondage of time. One has to practice focused meditation (Sadhana) to establish oneself in the entity that is free from any bondage of time or any other concerns.
MYSTIC ENERGY (Rahasyavadi Urja) CAN DO WONDER
Then contrarily there is Maya or illusion or false impression or misapprehension or personification of that the idea in question is illusory or based on delusion.
It has been seen that Mystic Energy of God can help us drive us out of our predicament since Karma in the form of effort has to be made by us. But our path is covered with effortless ease when we’ve the faith that the Mystic Energy (Rahasyavadi Urja) will show us path thus bestow us energy (Urja) along with self-belief (Shradha) and determination to surpass any hurdle on the path (Raha).
MAYA IS ILLUSION (Rahasmaye)
Maya, in its worldly jargon is connected with illusion or delusion (a non-existent mythical experience) which is created due to ignorance or lack of knowledge. This shroud or blanket of Maya could be removed by enlightenment through the medium of transmission of knowledge through self-effort or through a Competent Master who has experienced life in variety of situations and conditions. After having acquired the eternal knowledge, the layer of Maya engulfing such evaporates into thin air. Enlightenment of knowledge removes ignorance or myth and brings the dawn of truth.
MYSTISM (Rahasyavadi Urja)
Then we have the concept of Maya which is mystical in nature. Lord Krishna has very rightly related in Bhagward Gita: My divine energy Maya, consisting of the three modes of nature, is very difficult to overcome. But those who surrender unto me cross over it easily. The mystical or magical power of our Creator is attained through complete surrender to the Absolute Self. It is empirical fact that Maya or mystical power is the Supreme Energy of Absolute Self. Lord Krishna has attributed it to be His Energy which cannot be triumphed over since defeating this energy since it is the Super Energy.
SOUL AND ITS CONNECTION WITH GOD
It is also a Truth that our Soul being permanent and a Ultimate Reality whereas our body is impermanent. Understanding the existence of our Soul brings to fore the Ultimate Truth about Supreme Being. In Upnishad, it has been mentioned that Maya is the energy (Prakriti) whereas the God is the Energetic. In Ramyana also the Maya or mithya is an energy which is engaged in the service of God.
MAYA AND TRUTH
It is a fact that where there is Maya, truth cannot be there. Truth cannot change with the change in space and time whereas Maya can. If we want to get rid of the Mays, we have to seek the help of some Guru or a Sadguru who possesses the wisdom of dissemination of knowledge.
BIRTHS AND DEATHS ARE MYSTICAL BUT BASED ON TRUTH
Death is one of the greatest enigma mysteries. The humanity as a whole is surprised by death’s mystical nature despite multifarious evaluation and evolution including many researches done on this yet shadowy character has not he unraveled. There are several cases wherein a person declared clinical dead came to life after sometimes and even live many years. This is in fact a mystery. It is seemingly invincible and very scary. Only thing which we should remember is that we should always be ready for death without an iota of fear for this event as a person who is born will have to meet his or her end, the time of which is not known.
In fact we do not die. We merely change the body and take physical or astral or casual. Subsequently, we can realize our divine nature and establish oneness with God which is termed as All-conscious and bliss. It goes to prove the establishment of close relationship of body with soul. But while in the body, the person concerned has to be an obedient instrument so as to transcend body-consciousness. Purpose is to acquire purity in mind and spirit so as to attain liberation from births and deaths ultimately. A sincere seeker always is sincere in thoughts and karma while seeking God. Here the intensity of seeker’s love counts much.
MYSTISM IN THE DEMISEE OF LORD KRISHNA
The truth about the demise of Lord Krishna of Doapar Yoga is laced in mysticism. The story goes like this, the monkey king Bali was killed by Lord Rama (Incarnated in Treta Yuga) deceptively since nobody could kill him in frontal attack since whosoever fought with him; the opposing fighter was destined to lose half his strength and King Bali would gain such a strength. This boon was gained by King Bali after a severe penance to God. When he was killed by the sharp arrow of Lord Rama, before his death, King Bali prophesied that in next incarnation, the same sort of death would happen to him which happened when a hunter’s arrow struck Lord Krishna at his foot which was very delicate. Thus the mystical forecast of King Bali got fructified proving the relative connection between TRUTH & MYSTICISM besides proving the truth that Karma never forgives any one – kung, pauper or even an incarnation of God. Whatever we do, we get the result of it all.
TRUTH & MYSTICISM ARE RELATIVE TERMS
If God is truth then it goes to show that God’s energy is unlimited and whatever is limitless comes under the domain of mysticism or supernatural or paranatural domain. This higher consciousness could only be realized by rarest of rare. This is the ambit of all-comprehending. But one thing which sets these rare personalities apart is the inherent capacities of absorption of anything and everything in their persona but remain disinterested in all of those. This disinterested could be construed as the total detachment which is worldly. No egocentric tendencies, no reactive tendencies, remaining grounded at all situations and conditions, remaining balanced at all occasions besides important of all maintaining total connectivity with the SUPREME GOD who is both TRUTH & MYSTIC in nature.
It is a known fact that the mystic prowess of Supreme Lord is indomitable. The case in point of Lord Hanuman Ji is shining example of ultimate power which was not known to him. He was divested of his powers by a curse of a sage who was disturbed by the pranks of Hanuman Ji while he was only a child. But later on, the sage relented and diluted his curse by a condition that if somebody reminded Hnuman Ji about his powers, his powers would return back. This mystery was exhibited when he was reminded about his powers by wise Jamband. This analogy teaches us about the truth of mystic powers of Lord Hanuman Ji. Even we can also exploit our innate powers if we have self-assurance along with belief on God.
