> The divine knowledge consists of two parts 1) If you are in
Pravrutti only, you can attain your self by the self-realization. In
this you will be fixed in the self and get detached from the both
subtle and gross bodies. By this all the bonds related to gross body
and related to feelings (Subtle body) or cut off and you will attain
the eternal peace. All your worries, anxiety, tensions, misery,
mental pain, dissatisfaction, confusion etc., will disappear forever.
You will live with perfect peace through out your life. Peace is your
property, which is the characteristic of your soul. You have to think
that you are the pure awareness, which is stand still (called as
Atman or soul). When you are attached to the gross body or subtle
body (Mind), you have lost the peace. If you are attached to the
casual body (soul), you have gained your lost peace.
> 2) In Nivrutti you attain the Lord who has come in the human form
for your sake to give the bliss. Bliss is only the characteristic of
Lord as said in Veda (Anando Brahma
). Veda also says that the Lord
alone can give bliss to the soul (Eshahyeva Anandayati
). Bliss is
not characteristic of the soul. Your property is only the golden
chain and not the diamond necklace. You should not think that peace
is bliss. By your effort you can attain only peace but not the bliss.
You can get the bliss only by nearing yourself to Sadguru who is the
human incarnation. You can get the cool breeze when you are near the
sea on the shore. If you are in the house, you have avoided the hot
sun. By attaining the soul you have come to zero from minus, but that
is not plus. Zero is within your self and bliss is from external
agency. When you have attained what you have, it is avoiding loss,
which can give only peace but not the bliss.
> Thus, the divine knowledge of Sadguru gives you atleast peace,
which is the earth, if not the bliss, which is the sky. He will give
you the knowledge of Atman to give peace. This is essential
requirement for any one in this world. A few blessed people can also
get the bliss if they realise that the Sadguru is the Lord Himself.
Therefore, you must utilise the full freedom given to you in this
human birth and you must destroy all your sins permanently through
Nivrutti only. You should be very active to use this unlimited
freedom with in the limited span of lifetime. When you leave this
gross body and go to upper worlds you have no freedom at all and
those upper worlds hence are called as " Bhoga Loka" which mean that
they are the worlds in which the results are to be enjoyed without
any freedom. This earth is called as "Karma Loka" which means the
world in which you are given full freedom to do any thing. You are
given the opportunity to receive the divine knowledge here and if you
> practice it by determination, your entire fate is changed here and
> The sages did long penance and sat in the process of self-
realization for several ages. They obtained peace of the self but not
bliss of the Brahman. Then they realized and approached Lord Krishna
as Gopikas for the bliss, which they got in Brindavanam in the
vicinity of the Lord (Sayujyam). You can smile or laugh with bliss
only by attaining the Lord in human form. You can get atleast a
shadow of the bliss by remembering the Lord. But without any external
agency you cannot get happiness or bliss. If you are peaceful and
silent, no body will ask you the reason but if you are laughing and
dancing in bliss stating that there is no external reason for it, it
is unnatural and people will admit you in the mental hospital.

This is really beautiful.
It is a lovely model for
making subtle distinctions.
Sweet nectar rushes over
the taste buds just reading it,
and feeling the heart resonate
with its truth is...blissful.
Thanks for posting this, surya.
