O brethren! The effluent cause (Upaadan) is excellent but the motive (Nimitta) of affluent cause should not be forgotten, “the value is of your breath otherwise it is piece of bamboo”. The intonation came out from the Ilute that is the cause (Nimitta), but had your breath not entered the flute then w’hether that flute was capable of sounding the tone?
,i.e. the affluent cause was of yours but the motive/ cause was of that piece of bamboo. When you carefully played on flute then it came out in the form of song, which was appreciated by all.
All praised your intonation. If the flute thinks that in case it (the flute) would not have remained there, then the flute-player would not have been praised, in fact, it is its mistake. It is correct that we do not cause anybody to do any work, even then we should be grateful towards that, as even this earth does not hold the load of the ungrateful person.
O brothers! The living being (potter) is not the creator of the earthen pot, the potter made the earthen pot from the clay hence here the clay is the creator/ maker. If the clay had not been there, how that charming earthen pot would have been made?
But the creative power and conscious flow is of that potter. If he would have not applied his creative power and conscious flow (Yoga & Upyoga) then whether that clay would have gained that beautiful form?
The creative power and conscious flow pertains to the soul. We can make our this pot of the body beautiful only by the knowledge and flow of consciousness.
But don’t regard yourself as the doer/ creator otherwise you will be entangled in the ocean of the world from where the quagmire of the passion would not let you protrude, therefore if we are not the doer of anything then why should we indulge in passion?
Why should we entangle ourselves, we should make our thinking positive. When you see substance by absolute stand-point then you should analyse your soul and when you think by practical stand point then you should cast your glance at your body.
O brother! You should not discriminate with your soul, whenever you discriminate between your own and of others, then it gives birth to differentiation within the family. Hence, should not view with narrow mindedness. Even a trifle activity creates dire difficulty in the family.
We are required to take care of our ownself.. i.e. we could be doer of our own , not of any other. We are effluent cause of our own .This human mode of life has been gained with much difficulty, hence we should involve ourselves in auspiciousness saving us from inauspiciousness.
That one who looks at the body that one indulges himself in sins. Hence always make your thinking positive. Even if the house-holder can keep himself away from the feeling of doerism then he can be immersed in the supreme meditation .
The holy feet of Jinendra Lord touched which earth, that earth became blessed, the soil became example of adoration transforming sandal from soil. The venerability of the Lord granted venerability to that soil and power of curing troubles of all, gave it the form of ford (Teertha) making it permanent source of the Devine energy of his own accomplishment, made it base for ascending upward for the living beings of the world.
Just as the very thought of “Gañida” the venom of a snake is destroyed, but not by taking heron as “Gañida”, Similarly it is only through the unflinching faith in true God, spiritual master, scripture and the realities along with true/ knowledge and conduct, one attains final liberation, not by false gods etc.
