Gadhada II-13: Divine Light

Summary

  1. Shriji Mahārāj speaks about His own nature for the sake of revealing the ideals of a devotee:
  1. Attractive vishays and the repulsive vishays are the same to Me. Praises and insults are the same to Me.
  2. My mind remains absolutely dejected towards the panchvishays. Whenever I forcefully engage My indriya’s vruttis towards objects, they remain there very reluctantly.
  3. I am not burdened by dharma, gnān, and vairāgya.
  4. The vrutti of my indriyas remains on God only.
  5. The reason for this elevated state is the realization of ātmā and Paramātmā.
  1. The murti in Akshardhām, which transcends all:
  1. Is luminous, possesses two arms, and appears young like a teenager.
  2. Is Shriji Mahārāj Himself.
  3. Transcends Akshar, is divine. That murti is Parabrahma or Purushottam.
  4. Is the cause of all the avatārs.
  5. By meditating on this murti [which is Shriji Mahārāj himself] one transcends māyā.
  6. Everything becomes nirgun by His association.
  7. His manner of birth and discarding His body are not in accordance with the ways of this world [it is alaukik or divine].
  1. Shriji Mahārāj’s points related to God’s form:
  1. Shriji Mahārāj is speaking [about God’s form] not out of any pretence, or out of any self-conceit, or to spread His own greatness, but for the liberation of the jiva.
  2. If one understands God’s form, their jiva will benefit greatly.
  3. It is the essence of the shāstras, based on His own experience, and from what He has seen.
  4. Only from the Satpurush can one understand God’s form but not by one’s intellect alone or even from the scriptures.
  5. When one comes to comprehend God’s form, one will not encounter any difficulty in subduing the desires for the panchvishays and swabhāvs.
  6. When one has a firm understanding of God, he has nothing left to accomplish; he is fulfilled and has reached the culmination of all spiritual endeavours.
  7. If one has completely understood God’s form [which is the essence of this discourse], then regardless of whether one is reborn in a base or elevated life form due to one’s prārabdha karmas, one will not forget this gnān.
  8. Without a firm understanding of the nature of God, one will never be able to overcome one’s weaknesses, regardless of their austerities or renunciation.
  9. One should keep this principle constantly new and fresh in their mind until the end of their life.
