Description

जीवनशैली क्या हो? हम शान्त, आनन्दित कैसे रहें? ये प्रश्न सदा से मानव मन मेंं उठते रहे हैंं। विचारकों ने विचार करके, तरीक़े निकाले, उस तरह जीये। उनका जीवन शान्त, आनन्दित हो गया तो उन्होंने वे तरीके लिख दिये।भारत मेंं उन्हें शास्त्र नाम दे दिया गया। वेद, उपनिषद, गीता आदि।पूरे संसार में अनेकों व्यक्तियों ने इसके बारे मेंं लिखा। रुमी, लाओत्सू, आदि। पर, समय के बदलने के साथ-साथ उन शास्त्रों के मतलब भी बदल दिये गये। उसका परिणाम हम आज कर्मकांड, अंधविश्वास आदि के रूप मेंं देख रहे हैं।मुझे लगा उन पुस्तकों के सही रूप को हिन्दी भाषा मेंं लिख दूं तो मैंने कुछ पुस्तकों का अनुवाद कर दिया।

In this Episode the Haikus of Soseki, Gido, Isho, and Ryushu have been narrated. One needs to be an Observer to reach in a Zen state of being. True wisdom comes from being a mere observer or witness, without the chatter of the mind.To walk on spiritual path, we need to know ourselves - who am I? To understand who we are, we need to first forget ourselves, that is, forget our ego, our separate entity, and know that we are all one. We should not discriminate against anyone. We realise that others are like us and we are like others, and there is no real distinction in all of us. This is the spiritual path.

Zen philosophy is a part Buddhism. Buddha's follower, Mahakshyap's disciple, Bodhidharma, went to China to spread Buddhism. However, the Tao philosophy was already prevalent in China. So, the Zen philosophy is a mix of Taoism and Buddhism. Zen philosophy believes that the world is perfect the way it is, and we don't need to change it. We should be grateful and compassionate, and lead life playfully. Zen philosophy is about living in the present moment, to be an observer, and not to bring any thoughts or judgments in the mind about what is being observed. Its say only observe and hear, without bringing in any emotion or thoughts. It does not follow any rituals, doctrines, or principles. The Master has only one aim - to bring the student in state of thoughtlessness, and to live in the present moment only. For this the Master uses various techniques, including making the student do arduous work, shouting at him, ignoring him, etc. The student needs to find the answers to his questions within himself only. The Master does not provide the answers, he only explains that in a state of thoughtlessness or meditation the student will get the answers. Zen Haikus are the shortest poetries in the world, that may seem very abstract, but are the most beautiful poems, that paint the picture of the present moment that is observed by the Zen Master.

This is the concluding Episode of the Kathopnishad, the dialogue between Nachiket and Yamraj.Yamraj explains to Nachiket that we need use our senses and mind to look within to know our soul. Once we understand the soul, we know that God and the soul are one and the same thing, like light and shadow, that cannot be separated. Yamraj then explains that in this life, whatever work we have done and the knowldege we have gained, through our body and mind, according to that karma, the soul needs to take re-birth after death. He explains that till we don't look within to understand the soul, our soul keeps taking re-birth. But, once we understand the soul, we attain nirvana/ moksh/ mukti, and then the soul does not take re-birth as it merges with the God/ Divine.

In this second part of the Kathopnishad, the story of Nachiket and Yamraj continues.Yama tells Nachiket that even the deities (devtas) cannot understand what happens after death. He begs Nachiket to ask for something else. However, Nachiket does not agree. So, Yama offers other things to him, including all the wealth, comforts, etc. of the world, and even offers to allow him to live in Heaven for ever. But, Nachiket is not interested in any of those. He tells Yama, that he being the God of Death is the only one who can answer the question. No one else can. So, he insists on the answer to his question on what happens after death. Yama then explains to Nachiket what Yama understands of what is the soul and how to know the soul.

In this Episode the Mandookya Upanishad has been narrated. In this Upanishad the importance of the syllable "om" has been explained.  It is the cosmic sound and an affirmation of the divine force. In all the Upanishads meditation by reciting "om" has been given the primary method of knowing the divine. All philosophers have used different words, such as the world and Creator of the world, birth and death, living and nonliving, etc. to explain the mysteries of the world and it's Creator. However, when a wise person recognizes that even though the philosophers use different words to explain the divine force, they all speak about the same Creator who is omnipresent in everything, then there remains no dispute or debate on the words, and one can lead a peaceful life.

In this Episode, the Kain Upanishad has been narrated. The student asks the Master from where do the senses get their power or energy (like sight (from fire), touch (from wind), mind (from Indra)? The Master narrates a beautiful story in which Brahm (God) takes the form of a Yaksh (benevolent spirit) to humble the pride of the Devas (forces of natural energies). He defeats them and shows that it is Brahm who gives them their power and energies. However, the student did not understand the story that was in itself the teaching. The Master explains to him that the story will remain in his unconscious being which can be tapped into.
