WHAT IS THE MEANING OF JIVANMUKTA ? PART -01


18 FACTS---- 1-THE GENERAL CONCEPT -------- IN GENERAI Indian context mukti means deliverance of the human soul from the cycle of birth, death and rebirth to which it is destined in consequence of its past and present karma (actions, deeds).The belief underlying the concept of mukti is, that the soul, a particle of the Supreme Soul, is, while embedded in the physical frame, in a state of or separation and longs for or reunion with its source, which for it is the supreme bliss.... MUKTI denotes the end of cosmic life. 2-THE GENERAL CHOICE---No need of Mukti -----because I love this MRITUYLOK-----& want to come here again & again..... 3-WAY TO GET IT------ Various ways, such as spiritual knowledge (jnana yog),, disinterested service(nishkam karm), ritualism (karma yog), austerities (hath yoga) and devotion to God {bhakti yog)are suggested to break the incarnation cycle. Whatever the soteriological means, the end is usually sought in the cessation of incarnate existence. 4-THE REAL CONCEPT-----Mukti means the freedom that all souls desire for. In other words, freedom from sorrow and miseries.After this freedom, the soul experiences ultimate bliss and lives under inspiration of Ishwar. This is the most satisfying and enjoyable state one can have. Also note that contrary to what many wrongly believe in, Mukti is not state similar to sleep or Sushupti. It is the OPPOSITE of sleep – a state of highest possible level of consciousness.... .JEEV-ATMA IS CHAINED (because of deeds) BUT EMANICIPATED ONE IS UNCHAINED,,,,,,SELF WILLED ,,,,,ICHHADHARI........... 5-WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF SELF WILLED---- It means 1- FREE FROM DESIRE 2-YES PERSON OF GOD ( AS NANDI ) 3- ALWAYS READY TO FOLLOW GOD 4- ABLE TO TRANSFORM ACCORDING TO NEED 5- NO NEED TO TAKE BIRTH & WAIT TILL DEATH 6-JOIN THE TEAM WHEN NEEDED........

Avidya (Ignorance) which has been described above. This is considered mother of all sorrows and foundation of all other sorrows. B. Asmita (Ego): To consider this mind, intellect, body to be the self and have false pride, superiority or inferiority complex. This must be destroyed through practice (Abhyas), intellect (Viveka) and renunciation (Vairagya). C. Raga (Attachment): To have sanskaars or tendencies of feeling bliss through sensory inputs and having greed for more of them. D. Dwesha (Repulsion): To have hatred against situations or things that caused us sensory grief in past. E. Abhinivesh (Fear of Death): To have a desire to never die and remain alive always. All living beings – from an ant to most intelligent scholar – fear death and prevent themselves from facing death to extent possible. This itself is greatest evidence of rebirth. When one understands that only body dies but soul remains protected forever under Ishwar’s blessings, this is eradicated. 7--In Indian philosophy and religion, mukti is another word for moksha, or spiritual liberation. The Sanskrit word comes from the root mukt, which means "liberation," "release" and "emancipation." Together, with dharma (moral life), artha (material security) and kama (sensual and emotional pleasure), it is considered one of the four goals of human life. 8-The basic concept underlying mukti is that human life is in bondage on account of its own works (karma).Mukti has two aspects—a negative and a positive one. On the negative side, it stands for having got ‘loose from’ or ‘rid of’. That essentially implies a bonded state from which man must be freed—be it ignorance (ajnan), nescience (maya), mortality (kal), suffering (dukkha), passion (kama), desire (trishna), attachment (moha), superstition (bhrama), physical body (sharira) or the wheel of life and death (avagavan). All these spell only a perilous existence for man.

9-On the positive side, mukti signifies the fullest and truest realization of the self. The saved life is a fully human self, open and unhindered. It embodies the realization that there is no other than the self. Separation and ego-consciousness stand decimated. Everlasting peace of the eternal and infinite self transcend the make-believe world of weal and woe, good and evil, gaiety and sorrow, wisdom and folly. 10-The basic concept underlying mukti is that human life is in bondage on account of its own works (karma). All the schools of Indian philosophy, with the lone exception of Carvaka(,means "agreeable, pleasant", but as a noun is another name of Brihaspati,) conceive of an emancipated soul which, after exhausting the effects of all karmas, attains the liberated state. However, what exactly is conceived as bondage, and what as liberation varies from school to school. 11-The Nyaya-Vaisesika school views it as freedom from bondage to the senses and sensuous life of pleasure and pain. 12-The Sankhya view characterizes mukti as the cessation of the three types of pain (adhyatmika, adhibhavika, and adhidaivika). The Purusa (self) is able to attain such a state only by transcending the adjuncts of Prakrti (material nature). Happiness and misery are the handicraft of the gunas (qualities). The liberated soul having transcended the gunas goes beyond pleasure and pain. 12-1-WHAT IS ADHIBHAUTIKA ADHIDAIVIKA &ADHYATMIKA IN SHORT?

03 FACTS--- -The individual person possessing different instruments of senses is called the adhyātmic person, and the individual controlling deity of the senses is called adhidaivic. The embodiment seen on the eyeballs is called the adhibhautic person.

A-Adhibhautika literally means pertaining to the bhuta or living beings. B-Adhidaivika literally means pertaining to the daiva or fate, unseen forces and gods. C-Ādhyātmika literally means pertaining to the ātma or the body (and the mind). 12-2-Sorrow and suffering are inevitable part of life. Knowledge regarding their origin, causes and even categorization helps one to minimize their effect, if not eradicate them. The scriptures usually call them ‘tāpatraya,’ (‘the three miseries.’) and categorize them into ādhyātmika, ādhidaivika and adhibhautika. 12-3--The ādhyātmika duhkha is that which is caused by bodily suffering and mental anguish. Hereditary diseases like leprosy, disabilities like blindness or lameness and diseases caused by the violation of the rules of health and sanitation are classed under this. The mental agony caused by worries and anxieties, attachment and aversion, also comes under this group. 12-4--The ādhidaivika duhka or tāpa is that which is caused by daiva. The word daiva includes the power of time, nature and the unseen hand or fate. Diseases caused by the changing seasons, misery caused by the elemental forces like floods and fire, suffering caused by black magic or disembodied spirits or gods who are displeased, natural tribulations due to hunger, thirst and old-age belongs to this group. 12-5--The ādhibhautika duhkha or tāpa is that which is caused by other bhutas or living beings, like wild animals, snakes, or enemies. Some of these, like hereditary diseases or physical disabilities cannot be got rid of. Hence they must be endured. Some like the diseases caused by change of seasons or the machinations of enemies can be countered by taking appropriate precautions. However, raising the mind to the level of the spirit, thus transcending the limitations imposed by the body-mind complex, is the best solution to offset the effects of tāpatraya. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

13-The yogic school prescribes dhyana (meditation) and samadhi (the state of pure, contentless consciousness) as means to liberation—the emptied consciousness shining with its own radiance. 14-In Vedanta, mukti stands for the removal of duality (dvaita) and the merger of the self (Jivatman) with the Absolute (Brahman). The self then becomes resplendent as existent, intelligent and blissful (Sat, Chid and Ananda). 15-The concept of mukti can be found in Jainism, Hinduism and Buddhism. This core concept represents ultimate liberation, combining freedom, self-awareness and self-knowledge. Mukti can be achieved during one lifetime (jivanmukti) or after death (videhamukti). To achieve mukti in this life requires liberation from fears, ignorance and false knowledge. The person who achieves mukti in this life is called a jivanmukta. The Self-realized jivanmukta shows several characteristics, such as always speaking the truth, practicing nonviolence, humbleness and total Self-knowledge. 16-As in the case of numerous other concepts, the expression mukti is invested with a new meaning --- no longer the annihilation of human existence but the spiritual quality of one`s life that serves as the central principle . The body constitutes no barrier between the soul and the Supreme Soul. On the contrary, "the body is the fort limitless wherein resides He, the Cherisher Himself"Within the body resides the Ineffable One; the self willed------- fool does not know this and roams abroad in search of Him..Guru astavakra goes to the extent of rejecting mukti in the traditional sense of a post death state and substitutes it with constant love of the Divine as the ideal state of being . 17-The root cause of the alienation of the human soul from its Supreme source is avidhya (ignorance), according to the Vedantic way. He or she is the JIVANMUKT ,, one who has realized the essence of human life..

18-The essential life, concealed under the sheaths of egoism, of ignorance, passion, avarice, pride and infatuation. The ideal state of jivanmukta is, notionally, within the reach of every human being, since anyone following an ethical and spiritual course faithfully, may receive the God`s grace or blessing. Yet, rare are the individuals who actually arrive at the summit.contd. .........SHIVOHAM..........
