Panchala-2: Sānkhya and Yoga

Summary

  1. Philosophy of Yoga:
  1. The jiva and ishwar are the 25th element and Paramātmā is the 26th element.
  2. However much one contemplates upon the ātmā and non-ātmā, or however much one endeavours, without accepting the refuge of the manifest form of God, one cannot attain liberation.
  3. Drawbacks of Yoga philosophy:
  1. Both jiva and ishwar are understood as equal.
  2. Prakruti-Purush, etc., are thought of as being the components of the all-transcending God.
  1. Resolving the drawbacks:
  1. The jiva is minor [and limited] and incapable of sustaining the panch-bhuts; whereas, ishwar are all-knowing and capable of supporting the panch-bhuts.
  2. Only God is like God and He is indivisible; and Prakruti-Purush are His components in a sense that they are His devotees [but not a divisible component of God].
  1. Philosophy of Sānkhya:
  1. The jiva and ishwar are included in the 24 elements and God is the 25th element.
  2. When one understands the ultimate fate of all deities, humans, etc., and develops vairāgya for the vishays and realises one’s ātmā as transcending the three bodies, then one becomes a mukta.
  3. Drawbacks of Sānkhya philosophy:
  1. The element that attains Paramātmā is not considered distinct from the 24 elements. Therefore, who attains that Paramātmā? That question is not resolved.
  2. All that is grasped via the antahkaran and the indriyas is false; therefore, they believe that the manifest forms of God is also considered as being false.
  1. Resolving the drawbacks:
  1. The jiva and ishwar have been included with the elements because they have attained oneness with the elements, but in reality, they are totally distinct from those elements.
  2. One should realise one’s own ātmā as being brahmarup and understanding the form of God that has manifested to liberate the jivas as being satya, one should meditate on Him.
  1. Shriji Mahārāj’s principal: Become brahmarup through the path of Sānkhya and offer upāsanā to God through the path of Yoga.
  2. Both philosophies depend on each other; hence, if both paths are followed, then one attains liberation.
