Characteristics and nature of the soul
“Your Highness, please tell me”, Does our tongue have the power of speak from someone other source? Do our eyes have the power to see or they get the energy to see from some other source ? Do our ears hear with their own power or they get their energy from some other source? Does our nose have its own power to smell, or it get the energy to smell from another source?
But that which you see in the mirror is mere sensory organ. The energy of power, which allows that organ to perceive, cannot be seen in the mirror. Similarly, one cannot see the mind or the intellect. These are very subtle, beyond the most miniscule atom that we can ever imagine.
There was never a time when the supreme Lord, or cosmic power ( Maya ), or the soul did not exist. All three are perennially eternal in existence.
The contradictions continue……..
The supreme Lord has no performs various actions.
He has no hands, yet performs various actions.
He has no mouth , yet he savours all delicacies .
He does not speak, yet gives sermons.
He has no eyes, yet sees.
He has no nose, yet smells.
The supreme Lord has supernatural miraculous powers which cannot be defined.
Alexander’s Guru asked him to get the water from the holy river Ganga.
The second thing he asked for was the sacred Bhagavad Gita which has the essence of all the philosophies of the world. Thing he asked for was to bring alone an ascetic from India.
There cannot be a sixth type of desire because we have only 5 sense and the objects of our senses from the basis of our desires.
- We want to see something -From
- We want to hear something -Sound
- We want to smell something -Smell
- We want to test something -Test
- We want to feel something -Touch
Our Hindu philosophy is so vast and deep, it comprises of 4 Vedas, Upanishads, Puranas, 6 Philosophical Shastras, each of which takes 6 years of study. Beside these, we have the
Bhagwat Geeta, Ramayana, and the Bhagavad Mahapuraan. Other religions have only one scripture. Christianity has the Bible, Islam has the Quran. The Hindu religion has so many scriptures.
There is no need to believe in God. But remember, you will not be able to get by if you do not perceive, believe and achieve the divine Lord.
We desire happiness since eternity. All our actions are for the purpose of attaining happiness.
Happiness is all pervading ( bhuma ) , eternal (shashwat), everlasting ( nitya ), infinite (aparimay), immeasurable and spanless (aporushay).
Only that which is unlimited and eternal is called happiness, it is what we all seek. Happiness that we find, then lose, then find again and then lose again, is not true happiness. That is just a mirage.
