Namah Te dear All,

i hope this message finds all my fellow seekers infinitely, incessantly and independently Joyous!

When Bhagavan Krishna was transitioning from manifest to unmanifest, He realized His ‘absence’ would trigger adharma. To ensure dharma, Bhagavan Krishna infused His essence into Shrimad Bhagavata…

And the essence of Shrimad Bhagavata is commonly known as Chatushloki Bhagavata (skanda 2 / adhyaya 9 / shlokas 32–25). The purpose of our eyes is to read about the glories of God so let us begin our E-Vichara

E-Vichara (December 24, 2018) — — The Original Bhagavata

  • When Bhagavan Brahma was created he did not know who he was which meant he did not know what to do — suffering from moha, he introspected for clarity and found the cure to be tapa
  • Contemplating on his Nature, Bhagavan Narayana manifested and held his hand — to end Bhagavan Brahma’s confusion, Bhagavan Narayana became the original teacher of Shrimad Bhagavata
  • Infinity is Real — Existence-Awareness-Joy is not a cause hence there can be no effects
  • Ignorance causes the Real to appear unreal and the unreal to appear Real — the unreal is like darkness, incapable of leaving a mark
  • The elements and combinations are only made of forms/names — the combinations and elements are disguising Infinity
  • A seeker practices filtering the changing from the Unchanging — identifying with the Unchanging one is no longer a seeker, one is a Seer

Inspire-Love-Be,
v
