Gadhada III-27: Not Keeping Any Obstinacy

Summary

  1. In God [by having the darshan of God], one experiences the bliss of all of the vishays simultaneously and at once; that bliss is extremely divine, eternal, and imperishable.
  2. The happiness from the māyik vishays is extremely inferior, perishable, and ultimately the cause of misery.
  3. A spiritual aspirant should develop vairāgya towards the worldly vishays and become totally attached to the divine and blissful form of God.
  4. If a devotee has an intense yearning to engage in the bhakti of God and to associate with the Sant, then regardless of any swabhāv that he may possess, he eradicates it and behaves according to the Sant’s will and command.
  5. The obstinacy of observing the religious vows is essential to one’s life and is extremely beneficial – one should keep this type of obstinacy understanding its importance.
  6. The obstinacy of one’s swabhāvs is inferior; and if the Sant asks to abandon it, one should abandon it.
  7. One who observes the religious vows keeping their swabhāvs is known as a rājarshi [equal to a royal person but not as elevated as a brahmarshi]. One who observes the religious vows and offers bhakti to please God is known as a brahmarshi and a genuine sādhu.
  8. Egotism:
  1. The Sant does not have compassion for an egotistic person.
  2. Anger and lust arises from ego; therefore, it is a major vice.
  3. By keeping egotism, one falls from Satsang.
  4. By realising the greatness of God, egotism can be eradicated.
  1. The Sant who possesses the attributes of panch-vartamān has a direct relationship with God. One should develop the conviction of God based on his words and that itself is the conviction of God.
  2. Whoever has affection for a firm devotee of God will be liberated.
  3. If one does manan and nididhyās on the greatness of ātmā and Paramātmā, then one attains realisation and enjoys the same experience and bliss as one does from these two in samādhi.
