How to Pass Life?


Today I took my inspiration of writing from Maharishi Patanjali’s Yogdarshan. First of all we see the following surta of Yogdarshan-

‘Heyam dukhmanagatam’ Yogdarshan|2|16

It says that the sorrow which is forth coming is to be cured or negotiated.
Means as a fact every pleasure is followed by sorrow and every sorrow is followed by pleasure. These pleasures and sorrow both are the two phases of this world and a coin of the world has these two phases altogether. The same is said in hymn of Rigveda, 1st Mandal-
"Om dwa suparna sayuja sakhaya samanam vriksham parishasvajate. 
Tayoranyah pippalam swadvatya nashnannanyo abhichakasheeti."

The other, means the soul is eating both sorrowful and pleasing fruits of the tree like world with taste. Means we can not ignore the forth coming sorrow because it shall come at any rate after any type of pleasure. But as is said in Yogdarshan we by the grace of Maharishi Patanjali Ji came to know that the forthcoming sorrow to which, if we know it, must be cured and we should do our full attempt to remove it. It is not a humanity to let it come with its full strength.

Now we take the second sutra, the cause of sorrow, suppose we are free from the bondage of this world and we are a soul of salvation, we can think about this sutra then well-
‘Drashtridrishyayoh Sanyogo Heyahetuh.’ Yogdarshan|2|17
The meeting of soul who is a spectator and the nature which is viewd, is the main cause of sorrow.
Means if we want to leave worldly sorrows we must try to leave this nature which has three qualities- Satv (In which true knowledge is there), Raj (In which discipline, anger etc. is there), Tam (In which ignorance and origin of birth and death is there). Meeting with nature give pleasure first and then this pleasure is followed by sorrow. So if we want to save us from sorrow we should try to leave this world and till when we stay here we should follow the tri-learning Knowledge, Action and Devotion. This whole world thus may be said of the nature, sorrow, because every pleasure has sorrow in its uterus.

So o dear readers we all should attempt to get salvation and we should do some work for salvation too everyday.

Om Shantih Shantih Shantih Om

Truly Yours
