Advaita Yoga Avadhuta Upanishad Beyond The Fourth

In Hinduism on June 23, 2014 at 07:39

There are, according to Hinduism, four sates of Being.

 

Jagrat, Wakefulness,

 

Swapna, Dream State,

 

Sushupti, Deep Sleep,

 

Turiya, Beyond  Deep Sleep,- Consciousness.

 

The Avadhta Upanishad talks about  beyond this Fourth Stae, Turiyadita.

 

Turiyatita Avadhuta Upanishad falls in the category of Shukla Yajurvaveda Upanishads.

 

Turiyatita Avadhuta Upanishad presents a conversation between Lord Brahma and Lord Vishnu

 

In this Upanishad, Lord Brahma asks Lord Vishnu about the importance of Turiyatita Avadhuta.

 

 

A person successful in walking this path is closer to Lord Brahma.

 

He finds every soul in himself and his soul in everyone. Such a person sees Lord Vishnu in every soul and is blessed by him.

 

He feels closer to Lord Vishnu and is free from all sins and desires.

 

.

Turiyatita Avadhuta Upanishad defines the importance of Avidhuta path.

 

This Upanishad also talks about sacrificing worldly matters and walking on this path after understanding his soul.

 

 

Avadhuta Upanishad.

Translated by Prof. A. A. Ramanathan
Published by The Theosophical Publishing House, Chennai

Om ! May He protect us both together; may He nourish us both together;

May we work conjointly with great energy,

May our study be vigorous and effective;

May we not mutually dispute (or may we not hate any).

Om ! Let there be Peace in me !

Let there be Peace in my environment !

Let there be Peace in the forces that act on me !

1. Then, it is said, Samkriti approached the venerable Avadhuta, Dattatreya, and questioned: Venerable Sir, Who is an Avadhuta ? What is his condition ? What his characteristic ? And what his worldly existence ? To him replied the venerable Dattatreya, the most compassionate:

2. The Avadhuta is so called because he is immortal [akshara]; he is the greatest [varenya]; he has discarded worldly ties [dhutasamsarabandhana]; and he is the indicated meaning of the sentence ‘Thou art That’, etc., [tattvamasyadi-lakshya].

3. He who rests constantly in himself, after crossing (the barrier of) castes and stages (of social position) and thus rises above varnas and asramas and is in union (with God) is said to be an Avadhuta.

4. His joy [priya] is (to be envisaged as) the head; delight [moda] is his right wing; great delight [pramoda] his left wing; and bliss (his very self). Thus he assumes a fourfold condition.

5. One should identify Brahman neither with the head nor with the middle part nor with the bottom but with (what remains in the shape of) the tail, since it is said that Brahman is ‘the Tail’ and substratum. Thus, those who contemplate this fourfold division attain the supreme Goal.

6. Not by rituals, not by begetting children, not by wealth, but by renunciation [tyaga] alone a few attained immortality.

7. His (the Avadhuta’s) worldly existence consists in moving about freely, with or without clothes. For them there is nothing righteous or unrighteous; nothing holy or unholy. Through all-consuming, correct knowledge [samgrahaneshti] (the Avadhuta) performs Ashvamedha sacrifice within (himself). That is the greatest sacrifice and the great Yoga.

8. Nought of this extraordinary, free action (of his) should be disclosed. This is the great vow [mahavrata]. He is not tainted like the ignorant.

9. As the sun absorbs all waters, and the fire consumes all things (remaining unaffected by them), even so, the pure Yogin enjoys all objects, unstained by virtues or sins.

10. As the ocean into which all waters flow maintains its own nature despite the water pouring in (from all sides), so, he alone attains peace into whom all desires flow in like manner; not he who seeks the objects of pleasure.

11. There is neither death nor birth; none is bound, none aspires. There is neither seeker after liberation nor any liberated; this indeed is the ultimate Truth.

12. Many were my activities perchance in the past for gaining things here and hereafter, or for obtaining liberation. All that is now of the past.

13. That itself is the state of contentment. Verily remembering the same (i.e. the past) achievements involving objects, he now remains thus ever content. The miserable ignorant, desirous of children, etc., needs must suffer.

14. Wherefore shall I suffer, who am filled with supreme bliss ? Let those who yearn to go to the other worlds perform rituals.

15. What shall I, who am of the nature of all the worlds, perform ? For what and how ? Let those who are worlds, perform ? For what and how ? Let those who are qualified interpret the Shastras or teach the Vedas.

16. I have no such qualification, since I am free of action. I have no desire for sleeping or begging, bathing or cleaning. Nor do I do them.

17. If onlookers thus superimpose, let them do so. What matters to me the superimposition of others ? A heap of the red-black berries (of the Abrus precatorius) would not burn, even if others superimposed fire on it. Likewise, I partake not of worldly duties superimposed (on me) by others.

18. Let them, who are ignorant of the reality, study the scriptures; knowing (the reality) why should I study ? Let them who have doubts reflect (upon what was studied). Having no doubts, I do not reflect.

19. Were I under illusion, I may meditate; having no illusion, what meditation can there be (for me) ? Confusion of body for the self, I never experience.

20. The habitual usage ‘I am a man’ is possible even without this confusion, for it is due to impressions accumulated during a long time.

21. When the results of actions set in motion [prarabdha-karman] are exhausted, the habitual usage also ends. This (worldly usage) will not cease even with repeated meditation unless such actions are exhausted.

22. If infrequency of worldly dealings is sought, let there be contemplation for you. Wherefore should I, to whom worldly dealings offer no hindrance, contemplate ?

23. Because I do not have distractions, I do not need concentration, distraction or concentration being of the mind that modifies.

24. What separate experience can there be for me, whom am of the nature of eternal experience ? What has to be done is done, what has to be gained is gained for ever.

25. Let my dealings, worldly, scriptural or of other kinds proceed as they have started, I being neither an agent (of action) nor one affected (by it).

26. Or, even though I have achieved what has to be achieved, let me remain on the scriptural path for the sake of the well-being of the world. What harm for me thereby?

27. Let the body be engaged in the worship of gods, bathing, cleaning, begging and so forth. Let speech repeatedly utter the tara-mantra or recite the Upanishadic passages.

28. Let thought contemplate Vishnu or let it be dissolved in the bliss of Brahman. I am the witness. I neither do nor cause any doing.

29. Being contented with duties fulfilled and achievements accomplished, he ceaselessly reflects as follows with a contented mind:

30. Blessed am I, blessed am I. Directly and always, I experience my own self. Blessed am I, blessed am I, the bliss of Brahman shines brightly in me.

31. Blessed am I, blessed am I. I do not see the misery of existence. Blessed am I, blessed am I; my ignorance has fled away.

32. Blessed am I, blessed am I; no duty exists for me. Blessed am I, blessed am I; everything to be obtained is now obtained.

33. Blessed am I, blessed am I. What comparison is there in the world for my contentment ! Blessed am I, blessed am I; blessed, blessed, again and again blessed.

34. Logical ! The virtues accrued have yielded fruit ! Indeed they have ! By the richness of virtue we are as we are.

35. Wondrous knowledge, wondrous knowledge ! Wondrous happiness, wondrous happiness ! Wondrous scriptures, wondrous scriptures ! Wondrous teachers, wondrous teachers !

36. He who studies this also achieves everything to be achieved. He becomes free of the sins of drinking liquor. He becomes free of the sins of stealing gold. He becomes free of the sins of killing a Brahmin. He becomes free of actions, ordained or prohibited. Knowing this, let him wander according to his free will. Om, Truth. Thus (ends) the Upanishad.

Om ! May He protect us both together; may He nourish us both together;

May we work conjointly with great energy,

May our study be vigorous and effective;

May we not mutually dispute (or may we not hate any).

Om ! Let there be Peace in me !

Let there be Peace in my environment !

Let there be Peace in the forces that act on me !

Here ends the Avadhuta Upanishad belonging to the Krishna-Yajur-Veda.

On 30 June 2001, Karunanidhi, Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, was arrested along with Central Ministers Murasoli Maran andT.R. Baalu

 

I was in Chennai then.

 

Early morning , I heard a loud wailing from my neighbor’s house, with shout’,

 

‘They are killing me’

 

I rushed out fearing the worst, only to find,

 

Karunanidhi weeping and shouting like a man possessed and insane on SUN TV.

 

This was the drama he was enacting  on his arrest.

 

The vent was filmed in such a fashion as if it was scripted.

 

Karunanidhi and Co were shouting that the Police were arresting them without prior intimation.

 

If it is true, how come the Crew of SUN Network was in full force and filming the whole event from vantage points?

 

My posting of this instance is that a New unpublished Video of the incident.

 

One can see how a Union Minister in the Central Government Behaves with a Police Officer.

 

The only polite word used by a Lady was , where is the warrant?’

 

You may be see rowdy behavior all around.

 

Finally exasperated, the Police gave back.

Background.

 

On 30 June 2001, Karunanidhi, Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, was arrested along with Central Ministers Murasoli Maran andT.R. Baalu. This event marked the first incident in the history of Independent India that a Central Cabinet Minister was arrested. The incident began when the seventy-eight-year-old former Chief Minister was taken from his residence. Within hours, images of the arrest were broadcast on Sun TV and other network stations.[1] Footage shown on Sun TV saw him continuously resist arrest….

 

Reports indicate that at 1:30 am on 30 June, Karunanidhi was asleep in the upstairs bedroom of his home when the police broke open the door and asked Karunanidhi to get dressed. The police cut the telephone lines to the house. A television clip showed Karunanidhi falling down and being shoved, pushed, beaten and lifted by police officers in the house. Murasoli Maran, who went to rescue him, was also attacked and arrested when he resisted the arrest of the ex-chief minister. Maran, who was sick from his heart with apacemaker, was admitted to Apollo Hospital after his arrest.[4] T.R.Balu and thousands of DMK cadres were arrested. M.K.Stalin surrendered before a Magistrate.[5] Prime MinisterVajpayee condemned the arrest and demanded a report from chief secretary and Governor.[6][7] The arrest was condemned by many groups across the political spectrum[8]including both human rights groups and the Indian National Congress, otherwise known as a political ally of the AIADMK.

The Mudgal Committee  appointed to probe into allegations of IPL 2013 Match Fixing, has transcripts revealing conversations that indicate  PL match was fixed by Indian Captain MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina.

The key man is President to be of ICC!

Video Link Naming Dhoni with Transcript.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exXN9njHicMDHon

What can come out of this Probe and the Committee Report?

“A report of details revealed during the interrogation of a bookie, known by the name of ‘Kitty’, alias Uttham Jain, was submitted to the Committee by IPS Officer G Sampath Kumar.
The report alleges that more than half of the matches played during IPL 2013 could have been fixed and Indian Cricket team players MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina knew about the wrongdoings.
The report provides incriminating evidence suggesting that the match between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals played on May 12, 2013 was FIXED.
The report quotes phone transcripts between Gurunath Meiyappan and Vindoo Dara Singh. The two can be heard discussing bets on the match between CSK and RR on May 12, 2013…
Meiyappan tells Vindoo that CSK will score around 140 runs. Later, CSK scored 141 runs in the match.
‘During the match, Gurunath placed bets of Rs.1.4 crore against CSK and confidently told Vindoo that Royals will win. In a conversation at 21:09 on May 12, 2013, stating that he has already placed bets of Rs. 20 lakh, Gurunath asks Vindoo to place Rs. 30 lakh more on Rajasthan. He says, “RR is winning pakka”,’ the Mail Today report quoted.
Meiyappan and Aggarwal were approached by a man from RAJASTHAN at Radisson Blu Hotel, Egmor. The report published in Mail Today reveals that Meiyappan informed Kitty that a discussion is going in regarding fixing the match between CSK and RR, scheduled to take place on May 12, 2013.
A second meeting took place on April 27, 2013 and Vikram Aggarwal informed Kitty that a deal was WORKED OUT.
‘Later after dinner party Meiyappan has informed that Chennai Super Kings MS Dhoni has agreed to play as per plan and his team will score 140 runs and this was communicated to somebody ( Sanjay) in Jaipur over phone by Vikram Agarwal when Kitty was nearby,’ the Mail Today report quoted.
In a separate conversation between Aggarwal and Vindoo- ‘Vikram Agarwal told him [ Kitty] that there was negotiation for match- fixing between Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings and Meiyappan has to communicate to Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni and few others for finalisation,’ the report submitted with Mudgal Committee was quoted by Mail Today.
