FROM TRUTH ACCOMMODATION TO TRUTH CONSERVATION

FROM TRUTH ACCOMMODATION TO TRUTH CONSERVATION

If one conserves truth, everything is conserved. That is axiomatic statement’. That is the meaning of Satyamev Jayate and so Conservative Libertarianism means just doing that. One does not allow truth to be covered up. This works if one has followed truth throughout one’s life so that one is constantly building on the truths ascertained through each moment of one’s life. One should always take the appropriate steps to ensure that truth is conserved. Then alone one follows the eternal law of the universe and dharma is practiced in the idealistic manner and thence follows Dharma Rakshati Rakshita in that if one practiced dharma in this manner the axiomatic law of Nature will protect the person and his works as dharma cannot be destroyed when it is the truth. This takes place when truth accommodation results naturally without any effort or planning involved to conserve truth. For Truth is God and God is Truth so one is constantly raising God to the surface in all ones thoughts and actions. This is realised when one knows that God is genuinely there to protect the sadhaka who undertakes his life in this frame of mind, that is to say he or she does not allow truth to be covered up with every passing moment of his life.

This is the real reason that I have survived for the past 24 years in the United Kingdom after two spells in a mental hospital under compulsory Sectioning and with constant threats from the State to return me to that confinement, as is evident in the 15 October 2021, 5.13 am email from Bury where he refers to a ‘straight-jacket’. The next time I am incarcerated in a mental hospital there will be no way back into the Community, this much I am sure. So I was thinking I should not be publishing anything more in my websites that I have or the State having been cornered will use that as evidence to do something terrible to me.

This however is cowardice and not truth conservation, but truth accommodation. Truth accommodation was a yogic path to the truth for me and that truth is Truth Conservation. This is sanatan dharma which remains the focus of my thoughts and actions.

SETTLING OF THE MIND AT LAST

THE SETTLING OF THE MIND

I am no longer seeking my Fate: the destination is already in place: I posted all 13 books in the series under the autobiographical theme ‘The Allurement of Reality’ in Internet Archive this morning and in Knowledge for World Conservation as well. I sorted out my Banking arrangements with Pay Pal and the Internet Service providers. I am content with my Realisation that Sri Krishna is both the Creator and Sadhguru in the coin of God with Durga (Devi) being the Preserver who combats evil. Sri Krishna is the Creator through Maya magic of vyvaharika which is not an illusion but a reality in which those performing sanatan dharma are guided through knowledge and steered through truth-acqusition to wards the Ultimate Realisation of Shunyata, that the Absolute Reality is nothing, the cause of God is nothing. It is indescribable as unmanifest ‘It’, and when manifest the whole universe is born from that nothing. Bhakti to Sri Krishna is the only way in which one acquires knowledge and satya-advaita yoga is the means to do so, the only means for doing so, for there are no easy paths to the truth. It has to come from action or karma that teaches the fundamentals of Reality, but when one is uncertain, one can force through bhakti for Sadhguru Sri Krishna to show the sadhaka what God is like and what the Reality is that one needs to contend with in arriving at liberation or moksha of Shunyata state of understanding.

So there is no longer any reason for me to continue adopting the sattvic frame of mind to get to any destination that might be left for me to seek. I have no aims, or ambitions or missions Godly or worldly left. I work on the rajasic mould of Vishista-advaita Vedanta in the Maya unfolded Creation which is to truth-accommodate at being in the Centre of the Sphere of Reality, and contribute to my family, the society both national and global as the opportunity to do so arises.

My latest book visits the issue of Maya, or the Illusion of the reality that we see as Creation and assesses the authors findings through the passage of his satya-advaita yoga to determine if Maya is an aspect of Sri Krishna such that Sri Krishna/Durga exist through it and when necessary override Brahma-Nature with its sattvic, rajasic and tamasic guna consciousness god entities of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva with their respective consorts Saraswati, Lakshmi and Parvati goddesses. Sri Krishna (Creator&Sadhguru)+Durga (Devi)=God. The details may be read here:

STEADFAST DEVOTION TO TRUTH

Above all lose all attachments and be steadfast in your devotion to truth so as to obtain a clarity of vision for your future:

Posted in Facebook Timeline

‘Shunyata (Nothingness) is the realisation that truth is inconsequential: 'It' amounts to nothing’.

The steadfast devotion to truth through sayta-advaita yoga leads one to question the meaning of life fundamentally. After 24 years of truth-search in the most intensive manner imaginable, I questioned whether I had a brain or a mind because I had used the detachment from bodily senses to raise myself to the point of mahatman or the mind operating at its interface with the Supermind in what I described as OM with Paramatman residing beyond as dormant in my psyche. It was a structure, a framework to assess Reality, nothing more, for delving into the intricacies of how the Ultimate Reality manifests itself on Earth is not something that one could get any evidence for. Such was the nature of truth. Nothing I did in my life ended in anything of substance for myself or society. I wrote 12 books, the Mind and Mindfulness being the last one under the theme, 'The Allurement of Reality' but few gave it credence by visiting my webiste and commenting on the contents. Some seem to have purchased the books as I received intimation of the creditation of £65.45 into my PayPal Account from the Publishing Company Lulu Publishing, but the contents of the book would not be easy to decipher. Only I know the truth of what happened to me over these years, most of which was spent in litigation that I was not be castigated in society as a mental patient, but I was a genuine autistically motivated truth-seeker.

It was pure truth that I was devoted to and treated truth as sacrosanct in that it had to be uncovered one way or the other. I would not take no to my process of truth seeking through truth-accommodation as the only manner in which truth could be ascertained with certainty. This is because one has to have the hypothesis that a God as a Personal God exists and is residing within oneself and fundamentally in one's mind. That being the framework the investigation had to continue while I still had breath in my body as the only thing that interested me for I had visions, utterances and prophecies of old that had to be ascertained. They were true and genuine experiences. But there were no guides for me as to the eventual outcome of what I was entering into in my late adulthood. I had to adopt a strategy of experimentation to determine that. And tactically conduct myself through my navigation of society in arriving at the destination.

So nothing of what I have ever written should be taken seriously. They were just explorations of the truth: to go where no man has ever been before me. I had all the facilities that I needed, the internet age to study Humanology through the computer being the most important, and I had the benefit of a good wife and daughter to look after me while I chased my dreams in this satya-advaita yoga.

No one has challenged anything that I have ever written on the numerous websites that I have and in the books that I have written and I am a free person in the United Kingdom, never having been charged with any crime or misdemeanours except for two short spells in a mental hospital for persistent delusional disorder.

So today I posted what I have realised: the truths I uncovered were inconsequential to the functioning of society globally and were just a personal quest as a scientist to get to the truth through experiencing Shunyata.

___________________________________________________________________________

Comments: I posted the above in Bravenet Forum: Satya-advaita Forum: https://pub46.bravenet.com/forum/static/show.php?usernum=3871902446&frmid=10425&msgid=1315786&cmd=show

TRUTH DOES NOT EXIST: REALITY DOES NOT EXIST

https://pub46.bravenet.com/forum/static/show.php?usernum=3871902446&frmid=10425&msgid=1315786&cmd=show

So with reference to the above Forum post when we are asked to give evidence on any matter to a Court of law or to just to another person, we have only our imagination of the Reality that we are experiencing. There is no truth in it for truth does not exist, this being so because Reality does not exist. We cannot be truthful for there is noone to judge the truth. It is all imagination. We are nothing in the Absolute Reality. We do not exist even. The so-called It does not exist. We are nothing in existence. This is described as Shunyata so nothing matters. There is no birth nor death.

This is not philosophy but the Reality that nothing exists. There is no point to Religion. There is no point to Statehoods, There are no obligations, no duties or responsibililites to oneself of anyone else. Is Existence an illusion then? What does this mean. It is worth examining, but how do we examine what is not there. There can be no examination.

https://pub46.bravenet.com/forum/static/show.php?usernum=3871902446&frmid=10425&msgid=1315787&cmd=show

So do not be attached to the truth you think you know, no one’s truth exists. It is all an illusion, an illusion that is made of what we describe as vyvaharika; in the paramarthika nothing exists, no mind, no Gods, no Reality which is known as Shunyata. In the vyvaharika that one lives an illusionary life, one does what comes naturally as one’s dharma (duties and responsibilities). This means interacting with people, socialising, and contributing to welfare of all as Nature allows. For me then there are no Gods in vyvaharika either for I know the Absolute Reality of Shunyata. If I go to the temple it is part of socialising, harmonising and doing something good like teaching and educating people with my knowledge. If I start a petition  like I did yesterday in 38 Degrees, it is to make life better in vyvaharika as my dharma. So dharma is the key to Hinduism, nothing else: no worship of Gods or gods, as attachments that destroy the peace of mind that I have in my realisation of Existence. No Dharma Rakshati Rakhita truth left to test as it has already been proven because I have attained the ultimate liberty, Shunyata in pamarthika realisation of the illusion of vyvaharika.

Posted in Linkedin with the above Blog Post in Libertarian Democrat website: ‘This is the true libertarian. The person who has surmounted all obstacles to get to realise Shunyata, and the distinction in outlook from the Absolute to the Relative, described as being paramarthika and vyvaharika in Hinduism, respectively. One is then just totally free in total liberty and this would be the moksha or mukti that Hindus have sought since time immemorial’. https://www.thelibertariandemocrats.com/post/truth-does-not-exist-reality-does-not-exist

9.22 am (UK-Time) 9 October 2021

Comments: If there is no God for me in vyvaharika, did my so-called visions, utterances and prophecies of 1997-1998 and since were revealed to me by a Higher Entity that I called Sri Krishna? Who is to tell. But I cannot worship that so-called Entity because I have no evidence for any such God in vyvaharika. I only have my dubious clock-checking so-called ‘consultations’ with God from 1999-2014 to go by. Why would any such God leave me to find my own way in life. What is the evidence for the preordination and preorchestration of the so-called Grand Design in vyvaharika. It is all conjecture and imagination. The mind conjures. This should be borne in mind, and I write this for the betterment of humanity so that no other person goes down the path that I did in these 24 wasted years of my life when I could have cooperated with the University of Greenwich in its Disciplinary action against me and still retained my career in science or secured my redundancy, or get a through investigation going then to clear my name. I sought to fight a dharmayudha in the Hindu way and that got me into the mental hospital on two occasions and then kept as an outpatient under the Care in the Community provisions of the National Health Service as semi-detention in a form of house arrest before I was discharged into primary care but still under enforced anti-psychotic, anti-depressant and mood-stabilising medications so that my reputation got from bad to worse over those 24 years. It was the interpretation of those visions, utterances and prophecies that I had reflected on that was the cause of my truth-search and led me to a dogfight with the State authorities of the United Kingdom just to be able to stay out of the mental hospital or even prison as well as in this country.

Even the construction of the Conservative Libertarian Society and its offshoots as well as Vishista-advaita conception I attributed to a God-given mission for me to restore the credibility of Hinduism and bring it all together as a Saviour for which I was expecting the award of ‘Bharat Ratna’ from as long back as 1999. Now it is all up in the air as something that I cannot be attached to in my Shunyata realisation that the vyvaharika is an illusion and there is no evidence of a God in this relative reality, let alone a God who resides in the psyche dormant in living beings and who may surface to get the living being to do different things under the Hindu concept of sanatan dharma.

So before I die, I wish to put the record straight for the only reality I know is that in vyvaharika illusion, my heart is beating and I am drinking coffee and typing this out since I got up this morning nonchalantly spontaneously and unpremeditatedly to see where it goes to from here. It is a disclaimer for everything that I have ever written during the past decades under the theme ‘The Allurement of Reality’, now in 12 Volumes.

Comment: The Libertarian Democrat website relates to the libertarian spirit and spirituality is out of the question in vyvaharika. What I do know however is that we must preserve Nature for the well being of the planet and its biodiversity that we enjoy and so my Society, the Conservative Libertarian Society holds promise as a dharma but that too has the word Libertarian for which there are no takers currently as no one has come forth to engage with me from anywhere so pursuing this through the website is just whistling in the dark, unless I change the constitution to separate it from Vishista advaita Vedanta. This is not possible as in vyvaharika the philosophy of Vishist-advaitism is important as it conserves, preserves and harmonises in Nature whether or not Nature is constited as Brahma-Nature, who is to tell. I will therefore engage to determine the path forward for me.

So I cannot get into spirituality at all and will abandon all association with the Libertarian Democrat.

 

VISHISTA-ADVAITA

Satya-advaita as a religion is not sustainable truth-accommodation because on seeing this the tamasic evil element of Brahma-Nature as vested interests against a libertarian will continue to attack and persecute the individual sattvic guna consciousness associated raison d'etre which destabilises and disrupts the peace of mind of a person.

Dear Lysette,

I had said to Wendy Macgeachy that I am no longer going to be able to volunteer my services, for various reasons, so she should delete my data from IMAGO's database. It seems as though the message has not registered or you are intent on pestering me. Which?

Is this the way of loving thy enemies? The mind detected further round of persecution which I automatically thwarted questioningly. Let me see the response.

Issac Newton? said in the third law of motion: every action has an equal and opposite reaction. That is what I just did. It is a fact of life. So, I am not sattvic. I am rajasic, truth-accommodation is not the way to be. Dharma in the rajasic mould is what is needed to combat evil. I do not love this IMAGO Volunteering group at all. I do not do volunteering I had made that clear to Wendy McGeachy. Right now, I am busy ensuring that our daughter gets to work in her new job each day so that the money keeps coming into the house. I had told Wendy McGeachy that Times are Hard. The Court has not ordered any damages and compensation to me for 24 years of persecution, nor Ordered the Defendant in Claim E35YM660 to return the £4170 that I had to pay arising from the DJ Lightman’s Order of 21 June 2021. It is a matter of survival: life or death. So, dharma is what takes over: rajasic dharma, in the Vishista-advaita Vedanta conception at the Relative level of reality; the ideal way to be. So, I am a Vaishnava. That is the truth. One has to be careful not to go in too hard or it would rebound on one. That is the danger. Paranoia is a saving grace. It exposes the truth to truth-accommodate rajasically as is proper through appropriate dharma.

The sattvic truth-accommodation or Satya-advaita was just a yoga, an experimental means of getting to the truth. It got Samadhi and then to Shunyata in the realisation of the Absolute truth. There is no need for any more truth-seeking yoga, so no need to truth accommodate sattvically. The fullest realisation of the Nature of good and evil in Brahma-Nature has been exposed. Now there is dharma as swadharma, to keep the family together, making judicious decisions which require Lordship over the Jungle of Nature. So, attack back at every provocation using the means available. Do not let them dominate you or you will be enslaved. Some provocations need to be tolerated and ignored for they want to provoke a reaction that can be used in legal proceedings against me. So having stuffed the State and its morons into their cubby holes remain in control over your future and prosper materially. This is not dharma beyond swadharma. Have nothing to do with society or the global humanity. Only the self is important.

For me now, the only truth accommodation is rajasic; every action on one should have an equal and opposite reaction if it threatens to disrupt one’s chosen way of life. So I changed my Bio in Facebook to ‘Every action has an equal and opposite reaction’ This is because that is the eternal law of the universe; It is self-preservational, that is it is the dharma implicit in Dharma Rakshati Rakshita. That is sanatan dharma, which God has taught me directly though my clock checking consultations and left me at a suitable time to allure me into finding out the truth for myself for which I changed from tamasic to a sattvic person. It was necessariy merely to seek the truth on Reality of my utterances, visions and prophecies while at the struggling to save my reputation at the University of Greenwich and was the path to get me to realise Shunyata though the interactions that I have had with thousands of posters and emailer, all of which are detailed in my 12 books. When there was no need for truth seeking any more (only sattvic guna consciousness attains truth independently for which one needs to be free of bondages such as God, aims, objectives, plans, missions, wishes, hopes, expectations, anticipations and is lacking of ego, in fact all attachments to bodily senses and spiritual ones to include those thoughts emanating from the somatic mind the brain) I was back living my life again in my body as self. In this frame of mind (yes the mind returned) every action that suppresses truth had to continue to be responded to with an equal and opposite reaction from me just as it happened through the period of long standing sanatan dharma where I left my body to become of a mahatman state operating it at the interface of the mind with the Supermind (OM), with Paramatman now dormant in that part of my psyche. So the lesson from all this is that it has now been shown to me to be the eternal law if one consciously reacts with every action of an evil nature with an equal and opposite reaction; the evil action being when one’s liberty is being intruded upon so that one’s libertarian spirit is being denied, for libertarianism is the highest form of life being mukti/frredom, no matter where the intrusions come from, whether from within the family or from outside the family. With such a frame of mind that is rajasic in Vishista-advaita Vedanta for it is not ‘Love thy Enemies’, I will see how long I can continue living in liberty as well as in material comforts for what is left of my life.

I changed my Bio by early evening on Twitter and Facebook to Vishista-Advaita (Own Version) Every oppressive action on me will be met with an equal and opposite reaction.

SATYA-ADVAITA, THE RELIGION

The Vedanta of Vishista advaita is not the final point of the processs of Realisation. Satya-advaita yoga is the method used to go through this stage as was Brahmanism, Brahmo-advaita and then to Shunyata, the Absolute Reality. There is then no distinction between vyavahrika (the visible Relative Reality and paramarthika (the Absolute Reality. There is no illusion about Existence. This is because there is still dharma to be performed because one is alive. Dharma Rakshati Rakshita has still to be tested. So what does this dharma comprise of. This is discussed here.

I posted on Facebook Timeline:

‘Pure Christianity and pure Buddhism are essentially sattvic gunas, but many tamasics masquerade with these holiness for corrupt purposes’.

‘Satya-advaita, the religion of truth-accommodation, is the highest level of sattvic guna consciousness’.

I then changed my Bio to ‘Religion: Satya-advaitist (Truth-Accommodationist)’.

I call it Religion because there is dharma to be performed in after the Samadhi state. What does Samadhi then mean: It means the end of the process of Realisation when all knowledge is known to the person. The gyana resulting has led me to put an end to my yoga and start living my life on ground realities only. One wishes to live the best way possible, basing one knowledge on all the materials that have been previously under consideration. The existence of God as Sri Krishna/Devi is one of those realities on the ground because He/She exists dormant in the minds of all creatures big an small, plant, viruses, bacterial, fungi and of course us human beings.Those of us who know Him live in bhakti, devotion and worship him as our dearest and most wonderful Entity.

There is seemingly good and bad in every person and perhaps even religions. We know that of Islam which explicitly kills non-believers, We know of the Anglican Church whose leaders conducted crusades and recently invaded Iraq and Afghanistan. Catholicism seems to be an exception but I have not studied any the established religions in any kind of detail. I only know of my experiences as an individual human being who had work to do and so had to learn from that work. Ffrom that as far as I can see nothing bad in Satya-advaita as a religion. There is nothing bad in me: if there is now at this moment in time, I would like someone to point it out to me. This is proven this morning that after 24 years of turmoil in my life I am a free human being living a lovely family life in good comfort and joy. This is because I now truth-accommodate purely and simply after the Realisation process came to an end as my raison d’etre. This is my religion.

Religion has firm rules and regulations on conduct as duties and responsibilities, to the family, to society national, and to humanity globally as one's dharma. God lies dormant in my psyche still. The process of truth-accommodation determines the direction that my life takes now still in the confirmed (to me at least) the preordination and preorchestration of the universe in the Grand Design Created by God.

The backdrop to Satya-advaita the religion is therefore that one is still a devotee of God who may surface again out of my psyche but it is unlikely. I cannot assume that He will not to put me right again as my Sadhguru. But in the religion that I now have I am conducting dharma as an amalgam of sanatan dharma and swadharma in accepting that one does not know one's fate and that the coming fate is yet to be ascertained in my life. I must test this out to see if it gets me a better future materially. I seem to have perfected  my satya-advaita yoga through the process of sanatan dharma to get to the point of full knowledge. The gyan derived from knowledge is the concluding religion. I  is not worshipping God through rituals like puja for that is never possible to do without feeling uncomfortable in the sense that it raises doubts in my mind as to whether I am still wanting something from God. I am not. I no longer wish to have any boons from God, knowledge-wise or materially. One does not want anything from God as I did while I was a sanatan dharmi in finding out  the details of Reality by following the satya-advaita yoga in bhakti. There is still bhakti but not for dharmayudha Brahmanism for that religion is now defunct and is seen by me as having served the Almight’s intents and purposes as prophesised in my email while I was still in the University of Greenwich when the workplace harassment on m was at its worst.  I consider myself to be a purnavatar-mahatman and so perfect that I cannot put a foot wrong now onwards and live to a natural death in full liberty. The bhakti and devotion to God remains as the new dharma of satya-advaita religon is offered to God in His Lotus Feet as the sanatan dharma once did. It remains to be seen in my life what is in store for me to be operating at this level of realism and whatever fate has in store for me that I will always accept as God having designed my life to be.

 

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Shantanu Panigrahi

Pure Christianity and pure Buddhism are essentially sattvic gunas, but many tamasics masquerade with these holiness for corrupt purposes.

 

Brāhman Seeker

Where exactly is pure Christianity? Anything which is exclusive in nature can't be pure. You have to believe in different ways lead to same Truth in order to be pure.

 

Shantanu Panigrahi

Brāhman Seeker, You need to study Christian thoughts in depth before you understand Christianity. For example: All Things Bright and Beautiful Lyrics All Things Bright and Beautiful. All things bright and beautiful, All creatures great and small, All things wise and wonderful, The Lord God made them all. Each little flower that opens, Each little bird that sings, He made their glowing colours, He made their tiny wings. All things bright and beautiful, All creatures great and small,

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound

That saved a wretch like me

I once was lost, but now I'm found

Was blind but now I see

Was grace that brought me safe thus far

And grace my fears relieved

How precious did that grave appear

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound

That saved a wretch like me

I once was lost, but now I'm found

Was blind but now I see

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? ... And: St. Francis of Assisi: Make me an instrument of your peace

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.

Where there is hatred, let me sow love;

where there is injury, pardon;

where there is doubt, faith;

where there is despair, hope;

where there is darkness, light;

and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek

to be consoled as to console;

to be understood as to understand;

to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;

it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;

and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Amen.

—St. Francis of Assisi

The Our Father

Our Father, Who art in heaven,

Hallowed be Thy Name.

Thy Kingdom come.

Thy Will be done,

on earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil. Amen.

'The Lord's Prayer 'is truly the summary of the whole gospel.' 'Since the Lord... after handling over the practice of prayer, said elsewhere, 'Ask and you will receive, ' and since everyone has petitions which are peculiar to his circumstances, the regular and appropriate prayer (the Lord's Prayer) is said first, as the foundation of further desires.'

- Tertullian, De orat.

The Full Text of “Abou Ben Adhem”

Abou Ben Adhem (may his tribe increase!)

Awoke one night from a deep dream of peace,

And saw, within the moonlight in his room,

Making it rich, and like a lily in bloom,

An angel writing in a book of gold:—

Exceeding peace had made Ben Adhem bold,

And to the presence in the room he said,

"What writest thou?"—The vision raised its head,

And with a look made of all sweet accord,

Answered, "The names of those who love the Lord."

"And is mine one?" said Abou. "Nay, not so,"

Replied the angel. Abou spoke more low,

But cheerly still; and said, "I pray thee, then,

Write me as one that loves his fellow men."

The angel wrote, and vanished. The next night

It came again with a great wakening light,

And showed the names whom love of God had blest,

And lo! Ben Adhem's name led all the rest.

SAMADHI FOR A VISHISTA-ADVAITIST

There is a question when through the passage of Satya-advaita yoga one found Visihsta-advaita Vedanta, and one is still alive as a householder. What should the Sadhaka do in this situation.

Here is a glimpse of the author's findings at the age of 64 and half, having Realised Shunyata or the Absolute Reality of Nothingness.

SADHAKA REACHES BACK TO BRAHMANISM

For a Sadhaka who has explored Reality in all its dimensions through satya-advaita yoga, and not interested in taking sanyasi status being a householder with responsibilities, his course of life for what is remaining of it is back to Brahmanism. So it is appropriate to explore what this philosophical concept means.

Brahmanism means dharmayudha, not in the sanatan dharma format, but in the swadharma format. He must eradicate all his enemies and aspire to be the Lord of the Jungle of Nature so that he can dominate all others and live in comfort and security.

The Brahmanism I practiced from 1998 till 2015 was sanatan dharma dharmayudha and so a distinct form of Brahmanism where I was taking instructions from God through my clock checking for messages to follow the visions, utterances and prophecies that had come my way in my mind in personal assessments of my mental state. Since God had left me and I was very careful to ensure that He did not have any messages for me since that time, I wanted to understand Nature, the Reality in fine detail as my sole objective.

The Brahmanism in Samadhi is different: it is swadharma dharmayudha, so there is a distinction to be made: there is Sanatandharma Brahmanism and there is Swadharma-Brahmanism the latter being for personal material gain to fight one’s enemies in Nature and withstand all persecution upon oneself. It operates therefore on a different level of Reality where one is Brahman, the Supreme Self. There is no Gods for me as Sri Krishna/Durga in Vishista-advaita Samadhi in now having adopted Swadharma-Brahmanism. I still have my gods in Brahma-Nature and all the devas and asuras as souls, so revere my departed parents and remember them in my thoughts as dwelling in Brahmaloka.

I changed my Bio in Facebook and Twitter to ‘Swadharma’.

Posted in reply to a Facebook post on Shraddha to an Acharya of Hinduism:

Punditji, we revere our parents after they die for the physical and spiritual upbringing that we appreciate when we have lived our lives well into adulthood. I use their names as passwords and dedicate my  books to their memories as my shraddha, and I remember them In my thoughts and actions. My mothers as souls visited me at a time of great ordeal that I faced so I know they still exist in Brahmaloka.

No emails came from the Court of Central London or from any other source. The telephone has not rung either.

I posted in my Facebook Timeline:

The Lord of the jungle understands Brahma-Nature so well that he is cautious to ensure the preservation of his dominance over the tamasic elements of Nature.

I then changed my Bio in Facebook and Twitter to ‘Lord of the Jungle of Brahma-Nature’.

SHUNYATA OR NOTHINGNESS

SHUNYATA NOTHINGNESS IN HINDUISM AND BUDDHISM

On Facebook

Rita Gupta

That nothingness is goal of Buddhism. In Hinduism one strive to become Brahm that is everything.

Shantanu Panigrahi

Rita Gupta, It is counterproductive to set goals. Let truth come to you if you are searching. If you have already made up your mind as to who you are and what you want to be you will never get moksha, that is the release from bondages.

Rita Gupta

Shantanu Panigrahi I am just telling you the main difference between Hinduism and Buddhism. You are free to follow your path.

Ahmad Ali

Rita Gupta, Sri Gaudapada, who was a scholar of Advaita Vedanta, said that "शून्यता" or "अजातिवाद" (both terms could be translated as "nothingness") is the ultimate becoming because once one merges with Brahman there would be nothing left: "When the mind does not lie low, and is not again tossed about, then that being without movement, and not presenting any appearance, culminates into Brahman." So Buddhist understanding of this is only from Hinduism. Obviously Brahman is something or we wouldn't even be aware to write here what its name might or might not be. So nothingness is just beyond language way to describe something none of us can rally explain 🙂

Rita Gupta

Ahmad Ali Could be, because Siddhartha (before he became Buddha) was a born Hindu and started his search under traditional Gurus but come to realization that all that old ways are unnecessary. Hence sought out those Gurus and started teaching his own version.

Shantanu Panigrahi

Rita Gupta, Hinduism in its essence is the same as Buddhism: they just approach the same goal from different angles. Both prescribe dharma, but through a vow in Buddhism, whereas in HInduism there is no vow to be taken. One is free to seek out one's path towards wherever one is destined to go on the basis that Creation must be preserved and protected and individually this is essential for one's spiritual progress. Both Hindusim and Buddhism state that attachment is one's greatest impediment to gain knowledge and that ignorance is the cause of all the stress that one tries to alleviate for peace of mind. When the mind is free one has arrived at Shunyata or Nothingness. There is no attachment to anything, God or material elements in Nature. Yes I have changed my mind about Gautama Buddha, in that he was a man who had taken sanyassi from his family and kingdom in search for the truth and found the same truth that I have realised in terms of doing no harm to any element of Nature wherever possible. I am a nonvegetarian by force of circumstances as ideally I would like to be a vegetarian but for family commitments of living in the United Kingdom. Further, it has been known since time immemorial that one must get to moksha and this I did by adopting the procedure of truth-accommodation or satya-advaita yoga. No one in Hinduism or Buddhism has ever talked about truth-seeking through truth-accommodation and it has worked for me in that I ended up in Shunyata or Nothingness after having been a devoted bhakta of Sri Krishna for 20 years. The outcome of truth-seeking is most definitely moksha in Shunyata. I have lived to see that day.

Shantanu Panigrahi

Ahmad Ali, Nothingness/Shunyata is a philosophy based on the strive for the truth that one arrives at when one is truth-accommodating in satya-advaita yoga. One cannot say for certain that the vyvaharika, the visible world is an illusion. We in philosophical terms of Hindusim call it Relative reality and Shunyata the Absolute Reality. It is philosophy, not religion. Vishista-advaita Vedanta is a religion for it sets out clear dos and donts on personal conduct (Dharma) much as Budhhism has the 4 Noble Truths and the Eight-fold path as Dhamma. I cannot at this moment in time see that there is a great difference between the two approaches to escape out of the Samsara. In Samadi (the state of being when all ones truth-seeking is complete and one is a Spiritual Master and adept) I am in Nothingness now, where, because I am still living with my wife and daughter I set out different dharma for myself at this level of Reality and so have had to modify my Vishista-advaita sanatan dharma into a personal dharma. In Vishista-advaita Vedanta, one never abandons one's sanatan dharma which includes the fact that marriage is a sacred union of a man and wife in holy matrimony in front of God, so over 24 years of great trials, my wife and I stood toegether with our daughter; whereas the Buddha being an atheist abandoned his family and kingdom to seek knowledge as a sanyassi. That is not permitted in Vishista-advaita Vedanta. So there are differences to the Buddhist aproach and my philosophy within the Hindu fold. I do not believe in escaping out of this Samasara (Creation) but enjoy living in it as a God-sent facility for us humans. My Shunyata having been experienced within the family household, it is clear that we do not need monkhood to delve into spirituality.

On Facebook Time line on Shunyata/Nothingness and the Post Realisation Samadhi state for a Vishista-adviatist.

 

Rita Gupta

Shantanu Panigrahi, Great, now try to share what you have found with others, If you want.

 

Shantanu Panigrahi

Rita Gupta, I am too busy to share anything with anyone. I have work to do, so I have reverted to Brahmanism, which means conducting dharmayudha for material gain. That is what a Vishista-advaitist does in Samadhi.

 

Rita Gupta

OK, do whatever you want.

 

Shantanu Panigrahi

Rita Gupta, Thank you.

 

Ahmad Ali

Shantanu Panigrahi, but it was a different time when the Buddha was leaving, and his family didn’t need him really 🤗 Didn’t Shridhama curse the love of Sri Krishna with Radha to Loka Patal Loka because sometimes devotion is higher than material things, even if material things are pleasure, love, and family 😍 But yes, you are right, monk hood is not needed. Your path is unique.

 

Shantanu Panigrahi

Ahmad Ali, Once one has realised Shunyata there is no turning back. I tried various things including reverting to Brahminism dharmayudha in trying to find out what is to be done in Samadhi, if one is alive. But it did not satisfy me, for my mind is operating at the interface between the atman and the Supermind (OM) still and I do things nonchalantly, spontaneously and unpremeditatedly still. I had Sri Krishna as my Paramatman Sadhguru lying dormant in my psyche but for the periods when He advised me to undertake Brahmanism dharmayudha, and then he left me and I was left to find out what Sanatan dharma in reverence and devotion to Sri Krishna required me to do. This went on unsuccessfully as He was no longer advising me, and I had to find this out the hard way by losing all my ego, desires and attachments to the body and under the hypothesis that whatever happens in the universe is preordained and preorchestrated under Sri Krishna's Sudharshan Chakra. The satya-advaita process that I then undertook entailed not having any aims, ambitions, plans, wishes, hopes, anticipations, expectations, desire to do karma, desire to do dharma and getting rid of all other attachments gradually as I saw that the process still left me with just the right actions to conduct my work of Conservation and Preservation when I formed the Conservative Libertarian Society (https://theconservativelibertariansociety.com). I was operating nonchalantly, spontaneously and unpremeditatedly to try and find my destiny for I could never forget the visions, utterances and direct prophesies that I experienced and the only way to try and prove to my satisfaction that God had been instrumental in guiding me was to relinquish my body which led to me saying to myself and others that the body is not important, what is most important is the mind. The mind must attain the atman state and further into the mahatman state to be perfect in one's actions for karma in sanatan dharma because at this interface with OM one was carrying out Sri Krishna's preordained and preorchestrated wishes, so the correct thing to do was to find one's kismat/bhagya/destiny in this way. Once I had reached Shunyata, the question arose in my mind 'Is that it for me?' I have attained immortality or moksha in this state? It remains to be seen for right now I have taken the decision to remain nonchalant, spontaneous and unpremeditated in all my future actions rather than blow about like tree leaves in the wind awaiting Mahasamadhi or worse undertake direct karmic actions both of which will destroy my satya-advaita yoga sadhana. My yoga still therefore continues in Samadhi to find out what my destiny is in humanity. That is the natural way to be, the ideal liberty while one is still alive.

Ahmad Ali

Shantanu Panigrahi, fascinating. The people who accept Buddha as the ninth transformation of Vishnu come to that same understanding—that this is the age to let go of all—before humanity enters the age of kali yuga and Kalki will ends us all. So, are you sure you have not become a Buddhist, my friend? 🤗

Shantanu Panigrahi

Ahmad Ali, All I know for certain is that I am nothing.

Ahmad Ali

Shantanu Panigrahi, “He has the most who is content with nothing “ said Lord Buddha ❤️

Shantanu Panigrahi

Ahmad Ali, When one is nothing, he posseses nothing, so the question of contentment does not arise.😞

Ahmad Ali

Shantanu Panigrahi, he's so content with nothing he thinks nothing haha 🙂

Shantanu Panigrahi

Ahmad Ali, He is neither content nor does he think anything because nothing has no mind or brains.

THE FINALITY: THE DESTINATION OF MOKSHA

T

THE FINALITY

Shantanu Panigrahi shared a memory — at Searching for Mental Health Services

1t3ponsurem  · Gillingham  · Shared with Public

Public

I have traversed the path of karma since I wrote this a year ago into Vishista-advaita for I was still blurry in my mind that Brahmo-advaita was then  the ultimate way to be. When there is karma still outstanding in one's life, one cannot dwell in Brahman Consciousness. That is for the State of retirement. That is true advaita when one becomes Brahman, and thereby attains non-duality and is the real Samadhi State. There is no dharma in Samadhi. There is no mind, no atman, no soul. So the fundamentals have changed. I had just not finished my karma in sanatan dharma when I wrote that a year ago. I have finished all of that karma and am now Brahman. There is no other. Brahman is not Consciousness. I am an automaton with no conceptions on reality, no religion or philosophy, no life, no death, no rebirth to contemplate, no worries, no joys no sorrows, so no decision making to be done with objectives, plans, or the hitherto mission of truth-seeking: for I have attained moksha, the absolution on Earth. This I defined to be the union of the soul with the Soul of souls. So now there is no yoga to truth-accommodate (satya-advaita).

1 Year Ago

See your memories

If one thinks, it means that his body is attached to his mind (God) so that his actions are calculated based on analysis of information observed, felt, heard or tasted (senses). In Brahmoadvaita through yoga the mind is realeased as the sixth 'organ of sense' (that is undetectable by scientific tools) and the body then overtakes the decision-making free of all sensual-attachments, just detecting the environment with mind-unpolluted perfection to generate the pristine instructions for actions, that are then perfect to the needs of the individual because the instructions are brainless. One has become psychic through yoga (satya-advatic yoga). One has only then entered Samadhi, because without a mind there are no questions left. There is only truth as Brahman (no mind, no body). That State of being is liberation, otherwise known as moksha). One is Brahman.

In Brahmoadvaita Vedanta, Brahma-Nature (hitherto in history of Hinduism known as plants and animals) are attached to as the mind in their somatic bodies and act in decisions that these gunas impart to the mind. This gives them the physical manifestation of characteristics to their actions in terms of behaviour in Brahman. The decisions are not perfect to aid the survival of the living beings as they do not truth-accommodate as actions. Only by transcending the gunas (sattvic, rajasic and tamasic altogether, that is the mind, is non-duality attained for total awareness and actions and one is then Brahman perfectly. The mind is thereby lost, so there is total peace, one is not bothered for anything. That is why I call it Brahmoadvaita Vedanta.

Sri Krishna is the Creator God who created Brahman with his maya (magic). The guna consciousness gods are not gods who act on the mind, living beings only access them in their minds. When one prays to God it is Sri Krishna that one prays to. He may or may not answer depending on the level of devotion and surrender (bhakti). Sri Krishna can if He chooses override Brahman by intervening in Brahma-Nature, either continuously to worshippers, or by avatars from Yuga to Yuga when He considers that there is a preponderance of tamasic guna manifestation Brahma-Nature.

__________________________________________________________________________________

Considerations and deliberations:

To be a libertarian, to be saying that one is an advaitist are both attachments to concepts. So I am Brahman as things stand at this moment in time. I have attained immortality in moksha: in becoming Brahman. That is Brahma gyan. That is the real reason why there are no temples for worship of Brahma in India. I as a human being do not exist. Brahman may be rocks, Brahman is everything as physical energy according to Aupanyav of New Delhi in India. But this seems wrong. In Absolute Reality Brahman alone exists, and Brahman is not life that one part eats, another is just rocks, or seas and mountains which do things as doers. So that is in vyvaharika, hitherto known as the visible reality. But is that well defined. Is not the correct definition of vyvaharika the Relative Reality’, which is an illusion. In paramarthika, the Absolute Reality, nothing exists that we see, hear, sense, react to and carry out works as karma. Is this Brahman then? No it cannot be for that too is a concept in Absolute Reality that does not exist. So what exists? Thou are that, Tat Tvam Asi, the Relative Reality being an illusion. Tat seems to be Brahman unmanifest so is beyond all Existence where I am. Who knows for certain. I cannot force truth into my brains. Only time will tell, if I live as a human being long enough in this Samadhi state and see myself transform or revert back to Brahman. Let me see.

Included as introduction in Internet Archive and the books: ‘The Samadhi state was utilised by the author of the Conception of Vishista Advaita Vedanta to delve further into what the thoughts and actions should be in this state of mind, so from exploring the idea of advaita purely and simply to represent all the elements of Creation, it was too an attachment to Creation and so had to be relinquished. So what was left. This book is an exploration of the mind to fathom the final  stages of Realisation which is therefore yet incomplete under the theme 'The Allurement of Reality' for the author still lives and his actions need to be assessed in light of previous publications of his in websites and books, all of which are referred to in the items deposited in Internet Archive’.

I started this book in Lulu Publishing in only the digital eBook format and expanded the ‘Towards Knowledge for World Conservation’ website, Internet Archive and the shops at The Conservative Libertarian Society and ‘The Allurement of Reality in Review websites. Rashmi said that she had received another criminal anonymous email addressing her as Srimati from Nitin Bhardwaj critical of her for standing by me and trying to send the email to Rupa. I said to her he has not sent any email to me. I am unconcerned. I will say no more to her. Let her do what she pleases. She said ‘As far as Paul Tiwana destroying me don’t worry about it. I am not a scardy cat like you. You think I am scared of stray dog, No.  I said nothing. I am liberated through truth into Brahman. I am therefore simply Brahman, or That. I go through the motions. Nothing to probe out now. Rashmi said she would come with Rupa and myself on her first shift on the 7th. I said OK.

In truth one cannot be attached to atheism or theism, hence atheotheism remains the outlook, but there is actually no outlook in Samadhi state as I do not exist.

So, from dharmayudha in sanatan dharma dharma, to Brahmo-advaita to Vishista-advaita, then to Advaita, retiring into Samadhi, then entering thereafter Brahman the Supreme Self state, followed by being ‘It’ the Unmanifest: and Thou are that/'Tat Tvam Asi' That is the finality of the state of Moksha, The Meaning of Life. Or was it: I am in fact nothing. And that really is moksha.

That then is the end of my quest for the truth in having adopted the satya-advaita yoga as the path and process of truth-accommodation. I am done now, back to routinal rajasic matters in living life as normal within the family and society. I am not a preacher, I was seeking the truth to find how best to lead my life, and remains to be as a Vishista-advaitist: I have dharma to perform, a family to support. I cannot be a nothing. I have problems to deal with in this material existence. I need to listen to others, and especially to my wife and daughter as well as other more distant family members, if not in wider society. I have the choice to make in so doing so this autobiography will be extended as a story of a Sadhaka in Samadhi. I have to come out of Samadhi now, and take judicious decisions so long as I am alive. I need to be there to support our daughter for which I must give up smoking cigarettes now. I must earn an income from my books at Lulu and in my websites through donations made to my Foundation, The Conservative Libertarian Society. So no karma, just ordinary dharma to maintain my lifestyle and assist my family in the process in a cool and calm manner. I cannot be attached to Nothingness either.

Ahmad Ali

How long did it take you to reach this state? So much change in one year. Congratulations 👍

Shantanu Panigrahi

Ahmad Ali I was a student with no guide as a guru except for Sri Krishna the Supreme God whom I consulted over 24 years to get to understand the Ultimate Reality, and so the meaning of life. I used the yogic process of satya-advaita to get to know everything because I had a mission in life to distill truth and develop 'knowledge for world conservation. I have succeeded in that and can answer all your questions. So feel free to interrogate me Ahmad.

Ahmad Ali

Shantanu Panigrahi thank for sharing. In the Samadhi State, as you noted, do you still do devotion? I mean puja, meditation, etc?

Shantanu Panigrahi

Ahmad Ali, I currently operate on a Vishista-advata philosophy as my religion. But since I know what the Absolute Reality is, I do not worship God Sri Krishna through puja or any other means like performing sanatan dharma. I have therefore reverted back from the Samadhi state because I have a family to support, income to earn, and have duties to society like cooperating on the coronavirus management. I am just thankful that through my satya-advaita yoga I lived to the afternoon this day when my learning is fully complete. Does that answer your question?

I posted on my Facebook Timeline:

The options are there for anyone to see: what you make of your life depends on the choice you make on the level of Reality to operate on’. ~ 16.40 pm 2 Oct 2021.

 

 

DEVI IN HINDUISM

DISCUSSION ON DEVI IN Ask a Hindu-Questions on Sanatan Dharma

29 September 2021 18.35 hours

Shantanu Panigrahi

Devi in Hinduism is in actual fact Lakshmi, as an incarnation of Durga, not Parvati, or Saraswati or Kali: What do the scriptures say?

Rita Gupta:

Devi is One and only, all her forms are different manifestations. Both authoritative Scriptures of Shaktism, Devi Mahatmay (Durga Saptshati, a part of Markendya Puran) and Devi Bhagawat (an independent Puran) explain so well.

She is triguna, in her Sat form, She is Laxmi. In her Raj form, She is Saraswati and in Tam form, she is Kali. Durga is her form where all three gunas are present. Parvati is her Shakti form to accompany Shiva, the Consciousness, so srashthi (Creation) could take place.

दीक्षा महान्ती Diksha Mohanty

Devi is just any female goddess .

And Maa Durga , maa kali is incarnation of maa parvati .

Maa durga and maa kali are same goddess with different form.

Laxmi and saraswati mata are different entities.

Brāhman Seeker

Devi is basically the Ādī Śakti and all these forms and names are different manifestations and Avatāra of the same Mother Divinity. Jai Mā Bhavānī 🙏

Shantanu Panigrahi

Rita Gupta, That is very comprehensive response. Thank you Rita. I will learn our scriptures from now on Devi in different sampradayas. Hinduism is so vast and gives so much reverence to goddesses in this context so engenders great respect of Hindu males towards the female gender which makes for wonderful spirituality for the nation of India. No place like India or should I say Bharat. Much as the different conquerors tried to destroy our culture, from Alexander the Great, the Persians (Moughals), the Europeans and especially the British who spent 350 years and introduced Islam and then Christianity, we Hindus took that as a lesson to learn from and one day we will return to traditional values of respect for young, middle aged and older people of both sexes as well as the Gay and Lesbian and Bisexual people for all are the Creators doing and serve different purposes in the Grand Design that needs the soul to be cleansed through reincarnation to climb up the karmic ladder towards the eventual destination of Brahmaloka where devas and asura as souls exist. I grew up worshipping Durga and Saraswati but was not very keen on Kali due to the fear of her appearance in statues and pictures, but Lakshmi was like Mother to me. Somehow, I always felt that 'Ya Devi Sarbabhutesu, shantirupena sanstitata’ and the entire song/bhajan/prayer was a salutation to Durga as the Supreme Goddess the Creator, who with Sri Krishna being two sides of the same coin of the Almighty.

Shantanu Panigrahi

दीक्षा महान्ती Thank you Dikshaji, I would like to know more about your Devi.

दीक्षा महान्ती

Shantanu Panigrahi, My Devi? I believe all the Devi we know from books of Hinduism are one with different form and name .all are same shakti.

Shantanu Panigrahi

दीक्षा महान्ती Thanks.

Shivam Vinod Gupta

Rita Gupta, Mam Please Quote the Scripture. Because Nowadays their are many conmen who extract things from their own head and call it to be from the Scriptures. Thank You

Rita Gupta

Shantanu Panigrahi Great, study Durga Saptshati. There are three stories and four Stuties which really tell the philosophy of this important and very popular part of Hiduism. You can skip the details of the stories but pay attention to Stuties, there is the cream hidden.

As you learn, you will see that Kali is only a Shakti, very fierce and powerful of Durga Devi. Durgaji manifests her from her third eye to destroy some very terrible demans and absorbs her back once work is done. We should not evoke Kali, we can't make her go back. We should simply worship Durgaji as Mother Goddess. You did right thing.

Shantanu Panigrahi

Rita Gupta Thank you I love this explanation. You are very knowledgeable. I will accept your words as authoritative. I am in Samadhi so do not study scriptures anymore. I was born a Brahmin, turned into a Kshatriya on advice from Sri Krishna that I should take my janeo off to fight a dharmayudha against human rakshases, and today I was back again as a Brahmin although I have not been to the temple to get my janeo blessed in the appropriate ritual. I will start my pujas of Sri Krishna and Durga after taking my next bath tomorrow. I have two murti one of Krishna and very similar one of Radha but I will rename it Durga after my bath and only worship these two Gods.

Rita Gupta

Shantanu Panigrahi That sounds good, but don't rename Radha as Durga. Right now pitta paksh is going on. Wait until it finishes. Then Navaratri will begin, the most auspicious time to worship Durgaji Meantime try to get a picture of Durgaji. You can go online and print one or order online or visit your local Indian store and buy it.

Shantanu Panigrahi

Rita Gupta Ok, Thank you. I will do as you say. I wish to follow the rituals very carefully.

Rita Gupta

Shantanu Panigrahi If you approach Devi as Mother with Bhakti Bhavana, there is nothing to be careful about.

When people do Tantric Sadhana, need to be very careful.

Shantanu Panigrahi

Rita Gupta I have always been a Seeker of the truth, nothing more. That has been my primary concern. I do not approach God Sri Krishna and lately Devi for any other purpose.

Shantanu Panigrahi

At this moment's reflection (12.46 pm, 1 October 2021), I am thinking that Sri Krishna and Durga are two sides of the same coin, God. Just as a coin has a head and a tail the two sides perform different functions, Sri Krishna being the Creator and Sadhguru while Durga as Shakti-Devi is the Preserver who destroys all evil through her manifestations as Kali. She comes when a person is being set upon by worshippers of Shiva/Parvati as the tamasic God in the Trimurti, when a Bhakta of God asks for help as I did in 1997. I have no time to study scriptures because I do not wish to cloud the clarity of my thoughts with confusion from other sources of information that were knowledge to other people, so all my assessments are derived from personal experience of my life and the ordeal that my family have been through, Hence at this late stage of my Samadhi, I worship both Sri Krishna and Durga in Bhakti Bhavana, not in Tantric Yoga.

This only applies when God has made a major interjectioninto the affairs of life on Earth as in the Shloka from Bhagavad Gita, Yada Yada hi dharmasya, glanire bhavati bharata, abhyuthanum adharmasya, tadamana srijamahyam, Paritranaya sadhana vinsahaya cha drystakatam, dharma  sanstapnarthaya sambhawami yuge yuge’, as for example for the need to wipe out the dinosaurs 65 million years ago and now in the Kaliyuga where the Earth is in the same kind of peril from material plundering of Nature. In the normal state when there is no peril to the Creation on Earth, the sattvic, rajasic and tamasic gods of the Trimurti in Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva with their consort goddesses that are respectively Saraswati, Lakshmi and Parvati together interact through guna consciousness mechanism within the Earth and its life forms to preserve Nature and by so doing it is held in balance. That is how it works. Durga the Devi-Shakti protected me and trounced the rakshases of capitalist plunderers of the Earth over the past 24 years while Sri Krishna the Creator and Preserver imparted knowledge and wisdom into me to turn me into a sanatani, practicing sanatan dharma.

Shantanu Panigrahi Good for you, sometimes it takes trying situation in life to discover our true self. You are on right path, to have Shraddha and Vishvas in Ishwar, never let any other philosophy overtake that.

Shantanu Panigrahi

Rita Gupta, Thank you Ritaji: I still have a life. The other day, I named myself as an advaitist. Now I know what this means. All Hindu constructions are philosophies until they become the religion that one lives in accordance with. I cannot abandon any component of my religion as it stands at this moment. But if things change and I l get greater clarification on the simplicity at which my religion in advaita is based, I will change. It gives me great peace of mind and joy.

 

ADVAITA: THE FINAL REALISATION

The author argues, that Vishista-advaita Vedanta was a staging post for move towards the reality encompassed by Advaita.

I posted In Facebook on My Timeline:

Shantanu Panigrahi: What is Hinduism then? It is a religion that is made up of diverse seemingly chaotic philosophies that draw on the same basic scriptures.

Sanātana Dharma is the beautiful amalgamation of different philosophies, traditions, thought schools, cultural practices, festivals, regional beliefs of Bhārata that evolve for thousands of years and are still evolving. In Sanātana Dharma, you can find a complete distinct practice in one Temple which you won't find in any other Temple. Though there are some basic concepts in Sanātana Dharma which are believed by all Sanātanī people, they're: Karma, Dharma, Yoga, Ātmā, Para Brahma, Dhyāna, Samsāra and Moksha.

Shantanu Panigrahi

Brāhman Seeker Beautifully explained. Should this Temple be named Hinduism or Sanatan Dharma in which instead of being calling ourselves Hindus, we say we are Sanatanis: that is the interesting question. We are Bharatiyas not Indians. The name of the country should represent the people who form the overwhelming majority.

Brāhman Seeker

Shantanu Panigrahi yes, the Hindu could be our ethno-cultural identity but since the ideas in it are indeed universal we should use Sanātana Dharma for our way of life and beliefs. And yes, we should be Bhāratīya as Indian is also a foreign name for our country. Aryavarta could be used too; the abode of the Nobles. Sam Subramanian

A dharm that gave us Advaita Vedanta can't be chaotic

Shantanu Panigrahi

Sam Subramanian This such an unbelievably profound statement. I thank you for coming to my rescue as I have been studying Advaita for 24 years and it took me into the depths of dharma especially what specific dharma is appropriate at different stages of the learning process, the satya-advaita yoga.

Absolutely Advaita

Dev N Mina Raturi

All branches targeted at one goal , Truth realization ; whether de aur ir Advaitavad and everything in between.

Developed by a people who had an obsession of Truth-realization to the exclusion of everything else.

The chaos is because of human mind, which wants to reduce everything to tangibles;

Adhere to superficialities rather than the spirit.

As Swami Vivekananda said, to care more for the Banana peal than the fruit itself.

🌺🌺

Shantanu Panigrahi

Dev N Mina Raturi Beautiful assessment-based knowledge. Truth does come, finally to the expanse of advaita when one is attentively seeking Realisation.

Dev N Mina Raturi

Shantanu Panigrahi

Yes, sincere seeker eventually realizes it no matter what the method.

Shantanu Panigrahi

Dev N Mina Raturi Yes, the journey is worth the joy in the end🥰

Hinduism is individualism. I wouldn’t say it’s chaotic. Instead, I think it’s an open-minded system that recognizes the diversity of human needs. Everyone paints the deities differently but the feeling is the same 🤗

Shantanu Panigrahi

Ahmad Ali We are not talking about deities per se, we are into the eternal law of the universe when we Hindus talk about Sanatan dharma. Dharma Rakshati Rakshita.

Ahmad Ali

Shantanu Panigrahi the idea is that individualism is part of the equation. For example, the sanatani-samaji divide or the north/south ideological diversity towards the universe, etc.

Shantanu Panigrahi

Ahmad Ali I said seemingly chaotic: to elaborate my sentiments you need to understand that our diversity makes us unified as Hindus. We appreciate each other and know where each of us is coming from. Such is our open-mindedness and non-judgemental nature.

Ahmad Ali

Shantanu Panigrahi, unified is good 👍

Shantanu Panigrahi

Ahmad Ali Dear Ahmad Ali, knowledge is vital, knowledge spreads across the Hindu community in India through gurus of different sampradayas and other Swamis and priests in different regions through different languages and knowledge permeates through the entirety of India. It is that knowledge that makes us tolerant of those who are no so well equipped and focus on material matters like earning income, proselytising Christianity and Islam by fighting wars. We appreciate Creation, God's creation, and live symbiotically with all living beings and when possible reduce our requirements of non-vegetarian food preferring to be just skin and bones in order to nurture our mind. For the body is not important. The mind is the most important thing. It has the potential to turn into atman and even into mahatman which is as close as one can get to paramatman, of God as the OM element residing in our psyche. This is the process of Realisation of the Truth, the only Truth that many not just a few Hindus attain without even knowing it, so we are peaceful people and tolerate brutality against us. We truth-accommodate. That is advaita.

 

Ahmad Ali

Shantanu Panigrahi that's a revisionist history, not the reality. The reality is that humanity - including the "Hindu" community - has been violent. The same violence we find today has been around always. When the Sangam (south Indian) were at war with the Maurya (north Indian), neither Christianity nor Islam was even born 🙂 In the south, when the Pandya Hindus defeated the Cholas Hindus, it gave them a chance to finally build a local identity, but at great violent price. It was the same in the north when the Haryanka Hindus defeated the Pradyota Hindus. This is the real human history 🙂.

 

Shantanu Panigrahi

Ahmad Ali You see Ahmad, 40,000 years ago to 2 million years since the coming of human beings firstly as Homo erectus and then Homo sapiens all of humanity were tamasic, that is Satan evil. The human civilisation started slowly with the introduction of rajasic guna consciousness by Almighty God Sri Krishna also known as Durga, and from that point the HIndu community with the Vedas were recited with settled agriculture giving people plenty of time to reflect on how they should lead their lives and the meaning of life in other words. So not all of Hindu (if you call HIndus those human beings living from Afghanistan today to the Bay of Bengal in Bangladesh and to Kanyakumari in the South) became rajasic from tamasic and even fewer became sattvic. That is how Evolution of human beings came about. So there were wars even in India which in 1800 had 650 kingdoms with kings as rulers some of whom were tamasic and fought. We Hindus understand that. Peacefulness is a relative term when applied to cultures. The central point that I am alluding to is that Hindus more peaceful than any other people because of the Vedic culture and Vedic Society that spread through the 650 kingdoms by word of mouth as it was all in a subcontinent with no invaders to destroy the evolution of the cultural base of the HIndus. It is when Alexander first came that he tried to conquer but failed, but the Persian Mughals with their Islam of a single God were nowhere near rajasic let alone sattvic guna characters who through better weapons conquered all of India and created pockets of Muslim communities within the Hindus, smashed Hindu Idols and created Islamic monuments across the land as a symbol of Islam like masjids and Taj Mahal and mosques to proselytise the HIndus. HIndus were more accepting of the invaders than other cultures who fought for material gains whereas HIndus were considerably more spiritual and developed knowledge like the Upanishads and Puranas and the Bhagavad Gita and many others that I cannot right now think of. You are right I have a revisionist attitude for we Hindus always believed in revisionist research of the truth and so I am no exception. My theory or shall I say philosophy is an update on Hinduism and it explains all of humanity from 40,000 years to this day across the globe in terms of the Transmigration of the Immortal soul, which Hindus understand but for Buddha 1500 years ago who destroyed it with his emphasis on material stress or dukha alleviation in the 4 Noble Truths and the Eightfold path that is all nonsense. So Hinduism was all but destroyed by Buddha so the Sangam, the Pandya, the Maurya, the Cholas and Pradota Hindus believed in wars to sort out their material needs at the cost of spirituality. Ashoka did not help either by reintroducing Buddhism into his Empire for Hinduism was dead. And then the person we Odishi people know as Thaka Guru Sankaracharya came along and taught advaita by bastardising the Gita and twisting the Brahma Sutras etc into the Tat Twam Asi philophy from which the lost Hindus like Deepak Chopra have come up with the theory of Consciousness or even Divine Consciousness, which can simply be said to be Brahmoadvaita Vedanta for the sanyassis. For a householder he has to live in the real world, earn a living, have a wife for sex and children to assist the family and look after the old when the older people cannot fend for themselves. So I was born to analyse all these aspects through education and bring Sanatan Dharma into focus in a way that we all understand human nature and why things happen the way they do. I am going on a bit but read this to understand more:

Shantanu Panigrahi, you see, it's all about personal understanding. There are Hindus for whom the Buddha is the final transformation of Vishnu just as there are Hindus who don't think Vishnu is the ultimate reality at all but Shiva (shaivism) or Mahadevi (shaktism)--these are all personal perspectives. To the rest of the world, the violence in South Asia (not just India) is nothing new in the world. There's less violence in India today than India of the past because there wasn't "one" country but Hindu kingdoms--of varying "hindu" beliefs. Alexander, the Christians, Muslims--these are all new problems. But the reason there could be a Mughal or British Colonial presence is because the violence is normal to humans. Hindus were not any more "tolerant" than the Celtics, or Arabs, or whoever--we accept violence because it's the reality. But, yes, Hindu history is just as violent as any other history. The reason Tamil Nadu is predominantly Hindu today is because of the violence just as the Sindh of Pakistan is today Muslim because of the violence. The Tamil were not Hindus and the Sindhis were not Muslim 🙂 Of course, the same is true about the Bengalis, the Marathis, or a lot of other major groups of Hindus today.

Shantanu Panigrahi

Ahmad Ali, A Seeker of the truth goes through those material stages of analysis and finally synthesises his or her conception of Reality. At that point all human activities were just food for thought. One becomes unconcerned about who is doing what are why. It is all about individual freedom of thought and Rationalism. All about Realisation. When one Realises one is free.
