Jeevan Vijay Siddhi – Ashvamedha Viraat Diksha
- क्या सही है और क्या गलत है?
- यदि मैं सही हूं और दूसरा पक्ष गलत है तो क्या उसके लिये मुझे संघर्ष करना चाहिए? या मैं दूसरे व्यक्ति को तात्कालिक तर्क में तो जीतने दूं क्योंकि मेरे जीवन का लक्ष्य और भी अधिक बड़ा है और मैं उस लक्ष्य को प्राप्त करने के लिये अपने आपको केन्द्रित करूं।
- यदि मैं गलत हूं और दूसरे सही हैं तो क्या मुझे अपनी गलतियां मान लेनी चाहिए जिससे मैं अपने लक्ष्य की ओर पुनः केन्द्रित हो सकूं।यह हमें विचार करना है कि हमारे लिये तत्कालिक लाभ अथवा तत्कालिक हानि आवश्यक है अथवा जो हमारा लक्ष्य है उसे प्राप्त करने की ओर ध्यान देना ज्यादा आवश्यक है।राजकुमार रघु ने भी विचार किया कि – मेरे लिये आवश्यक है कि मेरे पिता अश्वमेघ यज्ञ सम्पूर्ण करें। राजकुमार रघु की तीव्र बुद्धि और निर्णय लेने की क्षमता के कारण आगे राजा दिलीप के कुल को रघुकुल कहा गया और एक समय पर भगवान राम ने यह वचन दोहराया कि –
- संघर्ष के समय मजबूत बनना आवश्यक है, भय के समय बहादुर बनना आवश्यक है और जीत के समय नम्र बनना आवश्यक है।
- विजय उन्हीं के लिये सुरक्षित हैं जो संघर्ष द्वारा इसका मूल्य चुकाने के लिये तैयार हैं।
- जिन्हें बिना संघर्ष जीत मिलती है, उनके लिये यह केवल जीत होती है और जिन्हें संघर्ष के बाद सफलता मिलती है वे इतिहास पुरुष बन जाते हैं।
- यदि आप अपने शत्रु को पहचानते हैं और उसके साथ ही अपने आपको भी पहचानते हैं तो हजार संघर्षों के परिणाम से भी डरने की आवश्यकता नहीं है। अपने आपको पहचानो और अपनी बाधा और शत्रु को भी पहचानो।
- पहली जीत के बाद विश्राम मत करो, दूसरी जीत के लिये अपने आपको तैयार करो, अन्यथा लोग यही कहेंगे कि आपको पहली जीत भाग्यवश ही मिल गई।
- संघर्ष में किसी भी समय आपको असफलता मिलती है, तो आप यह जानिये कि आप सफलता के और नजदीक हैं।
- संघर्ष का दर्द, अस्थाई भाव है वह तो चला जाता है लेकिन सफलता का स्वाद जीवन भर रहता है।
- बिजलियों का भय त्यागे बिना कोई वृक्ष ऊंचा नहीं हो सकता है।
- प्रयत्न करने पर असफलता मिल सकती है, लेकिन प्रयत्न न करने की असफलता और भी अधिक बड़ी हो जाती है।
गुरु ही प्रदान करते हैं शक्ति
Jeevan Vijay Siddhi – Ashvamedha Viraat Diksha
27-28 December 2014
The organization of Ashvamedha Yaga is thousand times superior to that of normal yagya. This organization is done on a very huge scale.
King Dileep, forefather of Lord Rama, once decided to conduct hundred Ashvamedha Yagya. He wanted to involve the entire population of his kingdom into it and invite all kings of Aryavrata.
It is an incorrect myth about Ashvamedha Yagya that a king sent his army and a horse to roam freely, and conquer anyone who dared to stop the horse.
In reality, a personal invitation is sent to all friendly kings and chieftains. Distinct royalty officials accompany the horse, which is a symbol of the king.
Thus, Ashvamedha yagya was a large organization to symbolize Amity, Peace and mutual Collaboration.
King Dileep organized Ashvamedha Yagya 99 times and untied entire Aryavrat.
When the hundredth Yagya started, the king had some premonitions of upcoming troubles and problems. He resolved all the upcoming problems using his sharp mind. An exceptional incident occurred, the King’s symbol – the horse, disappeared.
The Yagya could not be concluded without the horse. Prince Raghu, King Dileep’s son initiated a comprehensive search and found that Indra, the Lord of the Gods, had stolen the horse.
Now a question arises. Why did Indra steal the horse and why was he vexed about the Ashvamedha Yagya.
Indra, the Lord of the Gods, was the only person at that time, to have successfully concluded Hundred Ashvamedha Yagyas and obtained title of “Shat Kritu”.Indra thought that King Dileep will also get “Shat Kritu” title on conclusion of hundred Ashvamedha Yagyas. He wished to remain superior and did not want anyone else to earn this unique title. So he stole the King’s symbol, the horse.
Prince Raghu became highly incensed on realizing this and decided to bring back the horse to Ayodhya, even if it entailed a war with Indra, Lord of the Gods.
He met Indra and challenged him to fight.
Prince Raghu was very young and inexperienced compared to Lord Indra. He had limited military skill, Warcraft ability and battle experience but had High Self-Confidence. He wanted to bring back the horse at any cost. Initially Lord Indra became livid when the young prince challenged him to fight. Lord Indra used all his powers to subdue Prince Raghu, but the young prince did not relent. He got defeated in multiple battles but he again resumed hostilities with full energy and strength. Ten Lord Indra recognized that He could not defeat Raghu with normal arms and armaments. So He used the most powerful and mighty Vajra Astra, but it did not have any effect on Raghu.
The war continued for many years. Slowly Lord Indra started appreciating the fighting skills of prince Raghu. He told him that – Prince Raghu, you cannot beat me in battle but I am impressed with your bravery and self-confidence. I wish to grant you a boon. You wish for anything except this horse.
Raghu immediately responded – “Hey Lord Indra! I am grateful for the boon. It is fine if you do not wish to return the horse, but I wish that my father should get the goodness and benefits of hundred Ashvamedha Yagyas.”
In reality, prince Raghu’s answer was accurate and precise. Raghu had instantly decided – Immediate gain is not important, Realization of goal is most important and the goal is – Benefits of Ashvamedha Yagya”.
Lord Indra granted the boon and King Dileep obtained benefits and goodness of conducting hundred Ashvamedha Yagyas. Prince Raghu returned back to his father. A cursory glance shows defeat of Raghu in this war, but this defeat is immaterial. Raghu tried his best and prioritized his goal, which is much more important.
He accepted current loss. The current loss leads to achievement of main goals.
The process of Ashvamedha Yagya establishes honor, esteem and fame. Respect and Esteem are the foundation of the riches of the entire world. It is the main basic essence of life. Prince Raghu could have wished for Lord Indra’s kingdom in the boon, but he requested only for benefits of the Yagya. Winning and Losing are not important in the life. The Respect and Esteem constantly drives victories. Raghu also thought that he had his father wanted to establish their esteem in Aryavrat. They were not greedy for Lord Indra’s position. So they desired for Completeness and Goodness of the Life’s Yagya.
This incident of Treta Yuga is equally relevant for us in this age and time. We have to regularly answer the three questions –
- What is correct and what is wrong?
- If I am correct and the other party is wrong, then should I struggle for my argument? Or should I let the other person win the current argument because my life Goal is much bigger and I should concentrate on achieving my life goal.
- If I am wrong and others are correct, then should I accept my mistakes, so that I can again resume my concentration to achievement of life goals
We have to examine if it is more significant to concentrate on accomplishment of our main life goals than worrying over current gain or current loss.
Prince Raghu also pondered – “It is imperative that my father concludes Ashvamedha Yagya. “ The sharp mind and quick decision making ability of Prince Raghu led to titling of King Dileep’s dynasty as Raghukul and even Lord Rama said – The Raghukul tenet is perpetual, the life may pass but the promises will not.
Raghu became a king in this line and he setup values, traditions and standards for his dynasty. Similar event got repeated down the timeline, when Guru Vishwamitra advised Ram – “Continuing the traditions of your clan, you have to accomplish tasks which even King Dileep and Raghu could not complete. Prince Raghu got tied to the words of Lord Indra, but you are independent. Do not fall prey to anyone’s guile in your life. You have witnessed cunningness of Kaykei and slyness of King of Lanka, Ravana. You have killed Ravana and have become victorious, but your life journey still remains incomplete.”
Rishi Vishwamitra’s words were immortal – “You have to attain victory after subduing guile and defeat, and you should not become content with one victory. You have to travel to Fame beyond Victory.”
The meaning of Vishwamitra’s words was – Every human in the world has to conquer problems and troubles whilst disregarding defeats, but to retain constant victory, has to walk on road to fame i.e. honor, esteem and respect. Real victory is to win over the minds of people. Famous and Illustrious person is Immortal in this world.
This Shakti power of Rishi Vishwamitra travelled into Lord Rama, and he accomplished Ashvamedha Yagya.
Vishwamitra was not alone in discussing about life-struggles, success and victory-fame. The Gurus down the timeline have provided similar guidance and advice to their disciples.
History is witness to the fact that Pandavas won instant victory in Mahabharat War, but it consumed their honor, esteem and reputation. Then Krishna advised Dharamraj Yudhisthir that he cannot become illustrious by winning some land in a battle. He has to accomplish Ashvamedha Yagya to attain fame throughout Aryavrat.
Ashvamedha Yagya is a much superior process to realize veneration rather than wealth-luxury-happiness. This leads to progression towards spiritual totality after attaining material completeness.
One can achieve true Peace, Contentment and Joy though Ashvamedha Yagya.
You know that Dharamraj Yudhisthir is venerated and respected along with his brother pandavas. His fame will continue throughout the ages.
Now that question arises as to why every person does not think of little through Greatness. Why does he keep pondering about trivial, insignificant achievements in his life? Why is his life goal confined to attaining wealth and riches? Why does he not aim towards spiritual totality along with wealth?
I believe that the only reason for this is that all individuals do not fully ingrain Guru’s thoughts into themselves. They worry and solicit advice only about minor insignificant problems and obstacles of their life.
The disciples who imbibed Guru Thoughts and energy into themselves, became illustrious and immortal. All others died in the dust of history.
Every individual should ponder about this life struggle.
Some beliefs and opinions about this topic are:
- It is important to become strong during struggle, brave during fight and polite after victory.
- The Success is reserved for those who are willing to pay for it through struggle and toils.
- Those who attain success without struggle become only successful, but those who attain success after struggle become Memorable.
- If you fully understand your enemies and yourself, then you do not have fear the result of even thousand struggles. Know yourself and fully comprehend your obstacle and your enemy.
- Do not rest after initial success, prepare yourself for next success; otherwise people will opine that you were first time lucky.
- When you taste failure during struggle, realize that you are nearer to success.
- The pains of struggle are temporary and transient, but the joy of success is permanent.
- A tree cannot reach height without disregarding fear of lightening.
- One can achieve failure after trying, but the failure enlarges in absence of trials.
Guru Provides Energy
There is none in world who did not face obstacles. Everyone knows that every person has to struggle. One should be strong during struggle but who will impart this strength? Thousands can accompany you during triumph; your friends, relatives and family folks will share your successes; but during struggle only one energy is your companion. And this energy is Divine Energy, and Guru imparts this Divine energy.
Guru’s Willpower awakens the subdued energy of the disciple. Guru has kind benevolence towards the disciple to awaken disciple’s energy. This Divine energy transfers out through Guru’s will and meets disciple’s inner soul. These processes occur at infinitesimal level. This transmission of celestial energy from Guru to disciple and inculcation into disciple can only be fathomed mutually by Guru and disciple. Anyone sitting beside them will not understand these emotions. This power diffusion though Guru’s willpower is called Diksha. This Diksha can be granted through touch, speech or vision senses. However, the divine relationship though willpower and a unique energy channel with each disciple is always present.
When the disciple ingrains such energized Diksha, then this energy stimulates and initiates spiritual process in soul. It subdues the past sanskars and karmas which were causing to obstacles, problems and troubles. The disciple starts getting enticed towards transcendent joy instead of material objects; and he starts feeling an inner heavenly energy. The problems of world look trivial.
The Guru and disciple are separate in body but the Guru considers the disciple a part of his own self. He conveys his knowledge and soul to the disciple. Every being in this world obtains small pleasures here or there; but the joy of success over the struggles of this life can only be attained through Gurudev blessings and benevolence.
Guru guides and stimulates the mind and knowledge of the disciple and awakens his inner energy.
Guru is the reflection of your own personality. Guru is always ready to guide and take you to new heights. You imbibe Guru’s personality and persona, when you make Him your own.
Guru is personification of Spiritual Energy
When Guru becomes your mentor, then you can never fail in your life. Always remember that Guru is here for you in this world, and He is with you in both good and bad times. You are never alone at any moment, in any situation. You do not have to search for Guru, you have to imbibe Him to stimulate your spiritual energy. When emotions magnify, then the words become mere trifling. The heartfelt connection with Guru becomes a relationship between souls. All other relationships in this life are connected with mind and body. Only the relationship with Guru is coupled between souls. Guru transmits parts of His Penance power to the disciple, this is Guru’s benevolence, Gurutatva, magnanimity and nobility. Guru does not give petty materials.
Guru Samaan Daata Nahin Yachak Shishya Samaan
Teen Lok Ki Sampada So De Dinahi Daan…
All of the Guru’s actions are for the disciple, because the disciple is Guru’s spiritual matter. The disciple is part of Guru’s radiance. Guru’s actions are phenomenal. A Guru is one, who gets each disciple to accomplish Ashvamedha Kriya. Guru is boundless energy, He wishes to sparkle this energy into the disciple. If it sprouts even once, then the remarkable Ashvamedha Kriya will initiate. Fill your life with trust and confidence. Make it more fertile by enhancing your trust and confidence. Guru wishes to sow seed of knowledge in this fertile life. Always be ready. Remind yourself that trust does not have any reasoning. The trust germinates, when the hearts meet.
Guru beholds and invites, like Krishna bade Arjuna, Vishwamitra called Rama.
This is not a novel moment, but it surely is a historic and important moment. When Guru invites, then you should not stop. You need to struggle in this life to achieve success and nobody else is going to grant you energy to obtain success. Only Guru can provide energy by becoming Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh.
You have to think for a moment that you should certainly proceed to SadGuru Tapasya Sthali Arogyadham. You are not dependent on anyone. You are fully independent and free. Nobody owns you. You yourself own yourself. You are free and liberated.
Do not tie yourself in worldly bonds. You have to come and immerse yourself in Guru, like a river in full flow breaks all boundaries to meet the sea.
Only Guru can kindle Ashvamedha Viraat Kriya in each disciple and germinate it; and therefore He invites you. All of you are Yogis of SadGurudev’s Siddhashram, and so have linked yourself to SadGurudev. You have to enhance yourselves. Come, reach Delhi Arogyadham on 27 December 2014, definitely.
