Panchadasi - (54)
« on: August 22, 2008, 12:43:54 PM »
The Chapter I continues....

Verse 57:-  The mind continues to be fixed in Paramatman
in the state of samadhi as a result of the effect of will, made
prior to its achievement and helped by the merits of previous
births and the strong impressions created through constant
efforts at getting into samadhi.

Verse 58:-  The same idea Sri Krishna, pointed out to Arjuna
in various ways, e.g. when he compares the steady mind to the
flame of a map in in breezless spot.  (Srimad Bhagavad Gita 6.19).

Verse 59:-  \as a result of this nirvikalpa samadhi, millions of
results of actions accumulated in this beginningless world over
past and present births, are destroyed and pure "dharana".
a state helpful to the realization of Truth, grows.

Verse 60:-  The experts in Yoga, call this as a rain cloud of dharmas,
because it pours forth countless showers of the bliss of dharma.

(That is, a Brhamjnani's state, as that of Bhagavan's state,
is a rain cloud, and it showers bliss of dharma on the devotees
and seekers.)

Verse 61:-  The entire network of desires is fully destroyed
and the accumulated  actions known as merits and demerits
are fully routed out by this samadhi.

To be contd....

Arunachala Siva.
