Take this into consideration In prayer The devotee sends letters to god. In meditation, God sends to the devotee. In prayer the devotee talks to god, Says something; In meditation God talks to the meditator, says something. The way of Mahavira is the way of meditation. ‘Jh Jh Suybhogahai’ and in that ultimate bliss as one starts to drown, as one sinks into that exorbitant juice.. ‘Aisay Ras Pasar Sanjuyam Puvyam’. and as the ultimate scripture is comprehended. As you begin to hear the sound of emptiness The one that Zen masters refer to as ‘Soundless sound’– The sound of emptiness Clap of a single hand, No one talks There is no one to talk Existence itself gives the message. When Godliness starts to vibrate from all the four directions – – The comprehension of the ultimate scripture– so every moment becomes full of delight with non-attachment and faith Understand this as a symptom of an monk. Understand this to be as a symptom of a sanyasin If there is no ecstasy, Then understand this that something went wrong If a sanyasin is not found dancing Then understand this that something went wrong Now go to Jain -ashrams,to Jain – temples, In Jain – . Worship places, Look at the Jain – monks, This sutra Will you find any symptom for it? Dry, barren Like a desert, Where there is never any greenery. there has been a mistake somewhere. This dryness has been understood by them as accomplishment. Compared to them, even worldly person sometimes seems happier. This treatment costs more than the disease. This drug Proved more deadly than the disease. Even the worldly man is sometimes encountered laughing, Have you seen Jain-monks laughing? They are not able laugh. It becomes difficult for them to laugh. Laughter for them will seem to be worldly. Have you seen them in ecstasy? Have you seen them filled with a deep music? Have you seen them playing the flute, playing the harp? Have you seen them dancing? No, that’s impossible. There is a mistake somewhere. and the mistake took place there — At the first step — They took sannyas by making a pledge. Not after having known the truth, They took sannyas by believing in the scriptures. Not through experience, They took sannyas through faith/belief. Fasting, Imposed discipline. Raped themselves They dried in that, became spoiled. ‘As the monks are fulfilled with excesses of the exorbitant juice, The ultimate scripture is comprehended, So every moment becomes full of delight with non-attachment and faith. Now, there is one thing to be taken into consideration You have seen indulgent people happy By this don’t be mistaken How can people with non-attachment be happy! non-attachment has its own happiness. And compared to the happiness of attachment its far higher and much deeper. Could there be any happiness from indulgence? It is only a compromise of the mind. non-attachment too has happiness. What did you do? The indulgent man Looks a little delighted/cheerful, So in contrast to that you build an image of non-attachment. Because an indulgent person laughs, An indulgent person sings songs, So non-attached one cannot laugh, cannot sing songs. Your non-attachment is itself opposite of the indulgence You have made non-attachment the opposite But in reality, non-attachment is the ultimate indulgence. Actually non-attachment, how can an indulgent person compete with it ? That dance, how can indulgent one reach it ? That ecstasy, Those lotus flowers Could only be touched When the inner self has become pure in an absolute way Such smile can only arise from the profoundly quite mind Today the thirst of these lips has been quenched the red lips of beloved have come on my lips The thirst has been gratified by the river of heavenly ambrosia, The beloved’s lips have finally come upon my lips– Today the thirst of these lips has been quenched On my lips the red lips of the beloved have come It is as though the Ultimate Self has embraced. The ecstasy of the ultimate renunciation Is as though the Ultimate Self’s lips have come upon your lips. The attached is in an impossible endeavor/impudence. The endeavor of the attached, Is such as extracting oil from sand. The endeavor of the attached, Is such as cultivating Neem plants And is expecting mangoes in return. Who would not wish to convert fire into a garden of roses So many bosom friends were burnt to ash But the fire did not become a garden of roses The attached is trying to make a flower garden out of the fire. From hot coals he is trying to make flowers. Who would not wish to convert fire into a garden of roses So many bosom friends were burnt to ash But the fire did not become a garden of roses Has the fire ever become a flower garden? Have coals ever become flowers? From ordinary human beings to masters/kings they make this impudence and loose. Defeat Is the abstract/summary of this world. That’s why we have referred to Mahavira as Jinn. Jinn meaning the one who has won/become victorious. Jinn meaning one who has achived Jinn meaning one who has become in fact sucessful. Not just successful but got good fruit. the one who will have life with fruits As and as The ultimate scripture is comprehended, So and so a perpetually new And non-attachment also blossoms eternally new flowers. You don’t think that non-attachment Is a rule based orthopraxy/convention. You don’t think that the non-attached one lives tied in the ever same barrier everyday. In fact: the attached lives in a barrier, The non-attached each moment enters the new and the newer. The non-attached neither has a past– He does not bear the burden of the past– And neither does he have the ambition to repeat the past. That is why nothing repeats. The non-attached’s morning is new each day. The non-attached’s evening is new each evening. The non-attached’s each moon is new, each sun is new. He does not carry the dust at all, That is why he is fresh, innocent/pure each moment. In my temperament, it is blasphemy, the mourning of broken (musical) instruments The song of tomorrow is the ocean It is not in the followers of the martyrs of the past In my temperament, it is blasphemy, the mourning of broken (musical) instruments The instruments that have broken, The past that has passed, I consider that to be sin. To talk of it again is a waste. That which is gone, is gone. In my temperament, it is blashphemy the mourning of broken (musical) instruments The song of tomorrow is the ocean– I am a singer/poet of the future. Not in the followers of martyrs of the past– I am not among those who cry for the past. The non-attached, The one who is with no attachments The non-attached who is established/stabilized within the self Does not walk carrying some dust. He does not walk with an assemblage. The one that is passed, is passed The one which is happening, is happening It is forever new. Fresh like the morning dew. Forever clean. Because the assemblage/collection of the mind itself produces untidiness. Its brings impurity, It makes stale. Have you ever observed, That which you have experienced again and again, They become stale. Have you seen the small child, running after the butterflies! You will not be able to run. Because you say that they are butterflies, We have seen a lot of them. Have you seen the small child, Become amazed with little-little things! Little-little things fill him with surprise/excitement/curiosity The flower of grass, animates the little child so, make him so flooded with excitement He is standing and looking, He cannot believe his own eyes That such a wonder can exist! Have you seen the small child, on the ocean side He collects the small pebbles, stones, shells, As if they are diamonds and jewels What is the matter? This little child has a fresh mind. He does not have a collection/remembrance of the past. That is why he cannot say that this is old. He does not have any means to measure at all From which he can say that this is old. non-attachment is a new birth/rebirth. It is like becoming a small child once again. Jesus has said, those who will be like little children, only those can enter my Lord’s kingdom. The Hindus say that you will have to be twice born/ of high birth You will have to take a second birth. One birth you get from your parents. That is the birth of the body. One birth you will have to give your own self. That is self-creation. That is the practice of the self. Then the individual stays ever fresh. Day after day filled with ecstasy. The story is such, Ramakrishna had excitement in little little things. Sometimes even his disciples also used to stop him and say, “Paramhansadev (honourable one), It doesn’t look good, What will people say?” His wife also tried to convince him that don’t act in this way. The discussion on the knowledge of Brahman is on, and in the middle, he would get up and go to the oven/stove What is cooking today? Now this behavior does not fit. Even others would hesitate. The disciples would feel what would people say? He would return again and start the discussions on the Brahman. But It conveys great simplicity Like The verses of Upanishad ‘Food is Brahman’, he is commenting upon– Through life. There is no difference in the discussion on food and the discussion on Brahman. If got up in between to find out then what is the issue/damage? Childlike simplicity The little child gets to the oven/stove again and again, he catches hold of the mother’s dress, what is been cooked? non-attached one becomes simple / with pure mind So simple that customs, conventions, norms, institutions/organisation discipline, everything becomes futile. He lives with inner simplicity. No pledge of past is this narrative Nor is it a story of today and tommorrow The high gate of the ocean is at every step A new reality a new saga Life is new for him each moment. A new reality A new saga non-attached one is the singer/poet of the new tune of life, he is the musician of life’s lute, he is the dancer of life’s great/divine dance. and each moment there is joy/enthusiasm and each moment new.
