Experience of happiness and sorrow is LIFE

Every change in the world is predetermined. In this way, the entire life of all the creatures, from birth till death, is managed by a predetermined order. Deluding the being, that Supreme Power makes him act according to HIS will.

    In this relation, Bhagwan Shri Krishna in the Bhagwat Geeta said:

  • The Supreme Lord dwells in the hearts of all living beings, O Arjun. According to their karmas, he directs the wanderings of the souls, who are seated on a machine made of the material energy. (Bhagavad Geeta 18:61)

  • While describing this world, Bhagwan Shri Krishna has clearly stated in the Bhagwat Geeta:

  • I am mighty Time, the source of destruction that comes forth to annihilate the worlds. Even without your participation, the warriors arrayed in the opposing army shall cease to exist. (Bhagavad Geeta 11:32)

  • Therefore, arise and attain honor! Conquer your foes and enjoy prosperous rulership. These warriors stand already slain by me, and you will only be an instrument of my work, O expert archer. (Bhagavad Geeta 11:33)

  • Dronacharya, Bheeshma, Jayadratha, Karn, and other brave warriors have already been killed by me. So, slay them without being disturbed. Just fight and you will be victorious over your enemies in battle. (Bhagavad Geeta 11:34)

  • From the above verses of the Bhagwat Geeta, it becomes absolutely clear that not even a leaf moves without the will of the Supreme Lord in the world. During my spiritual practice, I got premonitions of countless incidents and all of them proved to be true. I was never informed about the exact time of occurrence of any incident. The exact scene of the incident that was about to occur was shown like a television. Such incidents were related to this birth and to previous lives too. Out of curiosity, to know the time of occurrence of these incidents I started meditating. Within few days, I got a reply, “whatever has to happen is predetermined, so why are you wasting your time and energy on this?”

  • The experience of happiness and sorrow is LIFE. Upon knowing all the things that are going to occur in life, the feeling of happiness and sorrow will end so life will become monotonous. The situation will be like the removal of that pink curtain (an incident from Gurudev’s life). I asked myself, “Why are you making this futile effort?” So, I stopped trying to know the exact time of occurrence of events. Life is a dream. The experience of happiness or sorrow is a play of the illusory energy of God (Maya) consisting of three attributes. No one can remain unaffected by it while living in this world.

  • No one can be saved from this illusory power of God but the one who surrenders at the lotus feet of the Guru, his worldly bond is gradually broken. That being gets freed from the clutches of Maya in one lifetime and piercing the ‘Agychakra’ enters the ‘Satlok’ (the abode of truth) unintentionally.

  • The pleasures and pains of this world do not affect this being that much because he has crossed the realm of Maya. Therefore, even Maya becomes his slave and instead of stopping him, helps in his upliftment. With the help of the Enlightened word received from the Guru, that being, continuously gets closer to God without any difficulty. In this way, innumerable beings of this world are freed from the cycle of birth and death.

  • The imaginary line drawn by the religious preachers of this era is an illusion; the description of heaven and hell, virtue and sin, right and wrong is deluding the people of this world.

  • No one has understood the real message of the Bhagwat Geeta more than Arjun. Bhagwan Shri Krishna showed Arjun HIS vast form by a divine vision and gave the complete and real knowledge to him. What Arjun did after listening to Shri Krishna’s discourse, is the real meaning of the Bhagwat Geeta. Does it have any discourse on sacrifice, penance, charity, religion, virtue-sin, etc. as given by modern-day religious preachers? The religious Gurus of the world are asking to do exactly the opposite of what Arjun did after listening to the Bhagwat Geeta.

    - Gurudev Shri Ramlalji Siyag

    After giving the knowledge (contained in the Bhagwat Geeta), Bhagwan Shri Krishna asked Arjun:

  • O Arjun, O conqueror of wealth, have you heard this with an attentive mind? And have your ignorance and illusions been destroyed? (Bhagavad Geeta 18:72)

  • Arjun said:

  • O infallible one, by your grace my illusion has been dispelled, and I am situated in knowledge. I am now free from doubts, and I shall act according to your instructions. (Bhagavad Geeta 18:73)

  • The knowledge given by Shri Krishna in the Bhagwat Geeta has also not remained unaffected by this era. The religious teachers of this age are totally distorting it while giving its explanation. We cannot blame anyone for this because Bhagwan Shri Krishna has clearly stated that by putting every being in delusion, HE is making them function according to HIS will. One cannot understand the value of light without darkness. Without going through sorrow, one cannot feel the bliss of happiness.

  • The intense darkness spread in the world is an indication that the divine light of the Supreme Power is about to appear. In this relation, Maharishi Aurobindo has clearly said, “The knowledge attained by our Rishis is coming back and we have to give it to the entire world.”

  • India will have to rise to establish peace and to spread the ‘Sanatan Dharm’ in the world. According to my own direct experiences, the entire world will accept India as a religious Guru by the end of this era.
