Title: Panchadasi - (27)
Post by: Subramanian.R on August 20, 2008, 01:53:08 PM
The Chapter VI continues.....

Verse 287:-  Enlightened men may differ in their behaviour
because of the nature of their fructifying karma.  This
should not be make the learned think otherwise about
the truth of knowledge resulting in liberation.

Verse 288:-  Let the enlightened people behave in any
manner according to their fructifying karma, but their
knowledge is the same and their liberation is the same.

Verse 289:-  On the Supreme Consciousness, the world is
drawn like a picture on a canvas.  Thus is Maya superimposed,
on Consciousness.  When we forget the adventitious distinction,
Consciousness alone remains.

Verse 290:-  This Chapter called the Lamp of the Picture, Chitra
Deepa, when regularly studied, give an intelligent aspirant
freedom from the delusion, due to illusive appearances, even
though he may see them as before.

The chapter is concluded.

Arunachala Siva.

Enlightened people does not fit into the specifications laid down by the learned.Dattatreya is best example in this regard.
George Gurdjieff an enlightened master from Georgia of Russia used to behave in a nontraditional way,same is the case with omar khayam.

Dear Raju, Exactly.  The Viveka Choodamani and Kaivaylaym
say that these people would behave, like children, madcaps,
drunkards, fools and persons afflicted by devils.
