(38) Vairagya

Three enemies – desire, fear, anger
To be vanquished by liberation seeker
 
Reduce attachments to life worldly
Then vairagya will establish truly
 
But vairagya cannot be acquired
It’s a gift from the Divine revered
 
To only a select few spiritual seekers
Among millions of worldly seekers
 
Dissolving limited identity bodily
Perception becoming Godly
 
Everything seems my own
I become the Singular One

(37) Three gunas

 

Three gunas make up a being

Sattva, Rajas, Tamas ruling

 

Sattva founded on spirit eternal

Disregards body, world physical

 

Rajas works for ego, body sensual

Engaged for happiness ephemeral

 

Tamas knows not wrong from right

Shrouded it is in ignorance and sloth

 

Different gunas dominate at different times

Enlightened person unaffected at all times

(36) Svadharma

Svadharma concept quite distinct

From dharma or religion extant

 

Svadharma way of life for individual

Towards liberation from life physical

 

Religion is collective principle

Code for coexistence peaceful

 

Every individual life predesigned

With distinct karmic role coded

 

Role enacted by genes underlying

In the drama of creation fascinating

 

Svadharma is individual way of living

Per one’s aptitude, situation, liking

 

Doing what is warranted at the moment

God conscious, without selfish interest

 

Follow svadharma, even if difficult

Or is likely to entail certain death

 

Paradharma avoidable, even if easier

For that, shun duality of pain, pleasure

 

Accept fruit of svadharma, sweet or bitter

Incur no sin, even by killing people score

 

Don’t compare your life with another

Don’t put in a round hole, a peg square

 

Do what fits your capabilities, limitations

Not solely out of desires’ compulsions

 

Desires bind to repeat life after life unending

Horse chasing sheaf of grass, never reaching

 

Everyone’s role fits the big plan of Creator

Abandon svadharma and mess up big picture

(35) Spiritual Preaching

Self-realised person evolved spiritually

Shouldn’t try to preach to people worldly

 

Ordinary people deeply rooted in world

Perform karma with eye on fruit desired

 

To them, no desire for fruit, not acceptable

Why exert to convert the inconvertible?

 

Gita says its philosophy not to be shared

With those who are faithless, uninterested

 

Arguing with uninterested, without faith

Can make beginners doubt their own path

 

Engage in satsang, share with like minded

Let action set example for worldly minded

 

Select few sadgurus engage in preaching

As per the Divine scheme for redeeming

(३४) आध्यात्मिक साधना

मुक्तीसाठी जरुरी नेमस्त जीवन । योग्य निद्रा, आहार, चलनवलन । ताब्यात राहील शरीर, मन । तरच होईल साधन॥
स्वाभाविक चंचल असे मन । कठीण त्याचे नियंत्रण । तरी असे शक्य प्रयत्नाने । त्याला ऐहिकातून बाजूस करणे ॥
मार्ग असाधारण का असेना । प्रखर मुमुक्षुत्व त्याची प्रेरणा । करण्या वाटचाल अध्यात्माची । धीर, चिकाटी गरजेची॥
ऐहिक इच्छा जी उपजावी । ती प्रथम तपासून पहावी । शक्य होईल तोवर टाळावी । मग कदाचित ती विरावी ॥
असेल गरज पुरविण्याची । तरच करावी पूर्ति तिची । कालांतराने इच्छा कमी होतील । अनासक्त मन हळूहळू होईल ॥
ध्यान, जप, सद्ग्रंथवाचन । आणि सत्संग नियमित साधन । मुमुक्षुत्व असावे जिवंत । योग्य वेळी होईल मोक्ष प्राप्त॥
साधनाकर्म आपले हाती । फळ सोडावे परमेश्वराप्रती । धीर न सोडावा कदापि । परमेश्वरकृपा होईल जेव्हां ॥
परमेश्वरी वेळापत्रक तारण्यासी । नसे माहीत आम्हां पामरासी । नशीबाने इच्छा असेल जरी । ठेवावे अनुसंधान ईश्वरी॥

(34) Spiritual Practice

A moderate life is the foundation

For achieving spiritual liberation

 

Sleep, food and activity in moderation

To keep body, mind in right position

 

Agitated mind cannot concentrate

On spiritual contemplation in earnest

 

Mind naturally uncontrollable

But good thing it is amenable

 

To reform gradually and patiently

By detaching from interests worldly

 

Desire to pursue path extra-ordinary

Is the sustained impetus necessary

 

Don’t respond to desire mechanically

Analyse need to fulfill desire critically

 

Then desires will reduce gradually

To establish consciousness godly

 

Patience is the key in this pursuit

Nothing can happen in a moment

 

Keep desire for liberation burning

Practice meditation, contemplating

 

Leave the result to the will Divine

As per His time table and plan

 

Mind focused on god all-pervading

Each moment of acting or resting

 

Desire for this sustains in fortunate

Stick to the practice in real earnest

(३३) आध्यात्मिक वृत्ति

जीवन अपुले वर्षे कित्येक । अनुभव त्यात अनेकानेक । वाटे सर्व कांही समजले  । शहाणपण पूर्ण आले ॥
पण ते ज्ञान केवळ ऐहिक । इंद्रियांनी मिळविलेले प्रापंचिक । नसे माहीत जन्माआधीचे । ना मृत्यूनंतरचे ॥
बलवान बंध भावनांचा । घटना, व्यक्ति, वस्तूंचा । जाणावे जीवन असे क्षणिक । कशाला चिंता भ्रामक ॥
