IISH Updates from Dr Gopalakrishnan 11 June-2009

THURSDAY MESSAGE, 11th JUNE  2009 (SERIES 161)

Maithraayani upanishad.  It has  4 parts known as prapatakas. The first prapataka  describes the history of King Bruhadratha, who after ruling the country, left for vaanaprastha. There he met a great Rishi  Santayana.  The King asks the questions about the body, mind, karma of human beings to the sage. The question  were  about the body composition which are blood, flesh, muscles, bones and many ‘waste’ materials.  In this composition how the feeling, emotions, desires,  arise? What is the purpose of life ?  Why should  we live ? What should be the ultimate aim of the life?

Maharshi Sakayana explained that  the body is  like a chariot  which is temporary and never think it is permanent, it is composed of  many materials. All the feelings are coming from the mind. But  these feelings  are based on the Jagrath, Swapna and Sushupta stage of the mind.  The chariot body  is dragged  by the sensory organs, the pathway is decided by the karma phala. Ultimate aim of the life should be  self realisation.  (contd)

INDIAN LITERATURE:

Vedic Rishies are those Rishies who composed the Vedic hymns. They are known as mantra drushtaara  means they could see or visualise the divinity in nature through their inner visions. All those Vedic lines are written by more than 200 Rishies as sukthas. The name of each Rishi and  Medic deity  is mentioned  with every suktha.

 

SERIOUS INFORMATION

A great Hindu Indian professor & physician working abroad  informed me that his son is now living as a Muslim. His son was converted into Islam by a Pakistani Muslim. The professor requested me to give a suggestion to bring his son back to Hindu dharma.   When our children are ignorant and nothing is taught about our dharma, this will naturally happen.

 

ANCIENT INDIAN MANAGEMENT MESSAGES:VIDUROPADESA

Hey Dhrutharashtra Maharajan!  The sensory organs and the mind are  crucial in human life.  The mind  with sensory organs  get stuck with objects  of attraction. Where  they get dragged, the wisdom leaks out. Control of sensory organs, generous support for the  charitable  activities, thapas, discarding the  bad feelings are to be practised for a good life.

 

SCIENTIFIC & TECHNOLOGICAL HERITAGE OF INDIA

Varahamihira in Bruhath samhitha has explained  the carburization process for sharpening the sword  by treating with a day old liquid made of the burnt power of banana mixed  butter milk  and then sharpened properly. This  sharp sword will not be breaking in stones nor become blunt .
 

WHAT I HEARD AND SAW

I got into a train by mistake which started about 4 hrs before the actual train to which I had to travel. The TTR came only after two hrs, and informed me about the mistake and told me to get down in the next station. It is  very late night.  After  ten minutes I went and asked the TTR, since  the other train will come only after 4 hrs and I have to be in the station for that much time, “can I continue in this  train”.  He said you are now a ticket less traveller, if you have to continue you will have to pay a heavy amount with penalty.  Then he said to me “ sir you are guiding many people through  Television messages and lecture, I shall guide you upto your destination. Be here”  I felt/thought  every good  action  will be rewarded.

 

THIS WEEK MESSAGE

The monsoon has set, the nature gives enough water for  our use for today and for future. What we need to do is only  to preserve the water  underground. Never allow the rainwater to go out of our campus. Let it  get into the soil as much as possible. This can be used for the future.

 

A LINE OF GUIDANCE

Majority of the people will be thinking only about their work. The capacity of the leader is to  make them think with an integrated vision  and mission, so that they get involved in many positive  activities connected / disconnected with the profession

 

PAINFUL HISTORY OF INDIA

Indians practised the principle of athithi devo bhava. Only through this  principle  Muhammed Gazni, Ghori, and many invaders came and ruled India. Still we keep the wrong message of athithi devo bhava only through its meaning and not through its message. We have not learned anything from history.

 

SCIENTIFIC SUPERSTITION

A frequent health check up is the most dangerous method as advised by many doctors.  After each check up a warning ‘silent or violent’ is given by the doctor. Do not consume sugar/salt/pickles/ oil/fat/and so on. We start feeling that we are sick and that is the prime cause for many health problem.

 

A LINE ON ACHARA

Pray (or sit) few seconds by sitting on the bed early morning. This will help to  balance the blood pressure of the body as the  horizontal body becomes vertical, creates pressure jerks in the  performance of the heart.

 

 

YOUR QUESTIONS AND MY ANSWERS

Get up early morning at least half an hour before sunrise.  Sit on the bed and pray  with a mantra karagre……. Do the bhoo vandanam with a mantra  samudra vasane…… do not take the bed coffee /tea……  take a morning bath….. a prayer during bath remembering the parent 9if they are no more)…..   minimum ten minutes prayer chanting few mantras , keerthans, and few minutes meditation…..  atleast five soorya namaksara……… prayer before  taking food…….

Do pancha mahayajna : worship of gods, worship of forefathers, worship of great Rishies, worship of all living beings in nature and worship of  the learned people ( deva-pitru-rushi-bhootha and manushya yajnas) Learn as much as possible the messages of  Vedas, puranaas, itihasas  and follow the path of satya, dharma, neeti and nyaaya.
