Discussion - 3. "relief  from  grief" ....'mokasham' ...



To  get  away  from  the  grief  is  the  goal  of  life  that  is  sought  by  every  living  creature,  whether  man  or  animal.

Moksham  or  liberation  is  the  transcendence  of  the  individual  beyond  the  frontiers  of  sorrow.

Here,  the  Mantram  indicates  that  beyond  the  shores  of  sighs  and  sobs,  lies  the  land  of  realisation  where  the  knower  experiences  in  his  own  Self,  the  entire  universe  to  be  one,  which  is  nothing  but  his  own  "Real  Nature".



The  'pot-space'  can  discard  all  its  sense  of  limitations,  imperfections  and  sorrows  only  when  it  rediscovers  itself  to  be  nothing  but  the  "universal  space".

Each  individual  wave  will  have  its  own  sorrows  of  birth,  growth,  decay,  and  death  only  when  it  considers  itself  separate  from  others;  but,  on  its  realisation  that  it  is  nothing  but  the  'ocean  in  its  essential  nature',  all  its  sorrows  end,  and  no  more  shall  it  have  its  own  delusory  idea  that  it  is  separate  from  others.

Thus,  a  Saint  of  Realisation,  experiencing his  own  Self  shining  out  through  every  name  and  form,  expressing  Its  own  dynamism  through  every  circumstance,  happy  or  sorrowful,  is  eternally  in  unison  with  harmony  and  rhythm  amidst  the  discordant  noise  of  life.

To  him  are  the  greatest  potencies,  the  great  joys,  and  the  amplest  success  in  life.

Even  the  heaviest  sorrow  cannot  shake  him  even  a  wee-bit.***

Wherein  established,  he  is  not  shaken  by  the  heaviest  sorrow.
