Panchala-1: One Who Is Intelligent; Applying a Thought Process

Summary

  1. One may have affection for God and firm resolution to observe dharma; however, if one has not applied a thought process then the extremely alluring vishays will never be considered equivalent to the extremely repulsive vishays, nor will they be considered inferior to them.
  2. For the sake of revealing the ideals of a devotee, Shriji Mahārāj shares His thought process:
  1. One learns doership of God [God being the creator, sustainer and destroyer of the world] and that He possesses a definite form from the words of the scriptures.
  2. During the creation process, God grants indriyas and antahkaran to the jivas for the enjoyments of vishays and for liberation.
  3. God has created superior vishays for the purpose of alleviating the miseries of the inferior vishays.
  4. All of the happiness related to vishays which is apparent in this world is only due to some relation with God, and when coupled with dharma; but the bliss that is in God Himself cannot be found anywhere else.
  5. Therefore, an aspirant should realise, “The further away I am from God, the more miseries I will face and if I maintain close association with God, I will attain much bliss.
  6. Compared to the bliss of Golok and other abodes, the bliss of Akshardhām is immensely greater. One should keep this thought firm: Now I want to reach only the abode of God; I do not want to be tempted by the vain pleasures of the panchvishays along the way.
  1. One who understands this way:
  1. Is intelligent.
  2. Mahārāj has affection for such a person.
  3. His mind remains dejected toward the panchvishays.
  4. He has no trouble in withdrawing his vrutti from the panchvishays and he easily perceives vishays as providing inferior happiness.
