Panchadasi - (167)
« on: August 27, 2008, 07:26:23 PM »
The Chapter XIV continues....

Verse 17:-  In the Kausitaki Upanishad, it is said that killing
of parents, stealing, causing abortion, and such other sins
do not affect his illumination, nor is the colour (serenity) of
his countenance marred.

(See Kausitaki Up. 3.1.; Kaivalya Up. 24;)

Verse 18:- It has been said in the Aitareya Upanishad, that
like the cessation of all sorrows, the knower achieves all the
desired objects also.  "He becomes immortal, achieving all
the desired objects."

(See Aitareya Up. 2.1.6; 5.4;)

(In Bhagavan's life in Tiruvannamalai, there were many many
incidents, where the desired objects have come to the Ashram,
without asking for them.  He got rice, sweets, snacks, fruits,
and even 'kadukkai' nut, (which is used to cure constipation),
and even fountain ink bottle, without asking for them!)

Verse 19:-  In the Chandogya Upanishad, it is said that the
knower of Truth, may be seen laughing, playing,rejoicing with
women, vehicles, and other things but he does not remember
the body.  The vital breath, impelled by his fructifying notions
keeps him alive. 

(See Chandogya Upanishad 8.12.3;)

(Remember Kaduveli Siddhar's story, mentioned in one of my posts.)

Verse 20:- 'The knower of Brahman attains fulfilment of all
his desires." For him, unlike others, there are no enjoyments
through rebirths and actions.   His bliss is unqualified and immediate
and devoid of sequence or degree.

(See Taittiriya Up. 2.1.1;)
